Paul Rudd's new comedy "Our Idiot Brother" won't hit theaters until the end of the summer, but the trailer for the film, which has been described as "Apatovian," looks funny as hell. Rudd stars as Ned, the loser brother of Elizabeth Banks, Emily Mortimer and Zooey Deschanel. When not getting in trouble with the law, Ned is busy not being busy and making life unbearable for his sisters. The film is packed with hilarious talent which will also include Steve Coogan, Rashida Jones, Adam Scott and T.J. Miller.

Paul Rudd's new comedy "Our Idiot Brother" won't hit theaters until the end of the summer, but the trailer for the film, which has been described as "Apatovian," looks funny as hell.

The film is packed with hilarious talent which will also include Steve Coogan, Rashida Jones, Adam Scott and T.J. Miller.

If you can't wait for the film, the rather extensive soundtrack will be available on August 23rd. It will include seven pieces from the film's score which was composed by former Shudder To Think guitarist Nathan Larson and Eric D. Johnson. Johnson's band, Fruit Bats, will also contribute the song "Lightning Bug" to the soundtrack which is rounded out by three songs by music legend Willie Nelson -- "Wonderful Future," "Midnight Rider," and "Ol' Blue" -- a bit of indie flavor courtesy of Thao with the Get Down Stay Down and a little treat via Carole King's "Beautiful" which will sum up the groovy, folk vibe of the soundtrack nicely.

Check out the full track list below. "Our Idiot Brother" opens on August 26th. [Film Music Reporter]
