First announced in the summer of 2012, David Wain’s “They Came Together” will finally be making its way in front of audiences next week at Sundance. In advance of its Park City premiere, the first clip from the Amy Poehler-and-Paul Rudd-starring film has arrived online.
Written by Wain and frequent collaborator Michael Showalter, the rom-com send-up will follow Poehler’s knick-knack shop owner (seriously) who comes into conflict with Rudd’s corporate stooge whose company is trying to shut her store down. Clocking in at just over a minute and half, the clip (Buzzfeed via Collider) shows Poehler and Rudd running into each other in a bookstore after their disastrous first encounter at a party, a riff on the meet-cute setup found in every rom-com ever.
“They Came Together” premieres at Sundance on January 24th and stars a murderer’s row of a cast including Michael Ian Black, Cobie Smulders, Ed Helms, Ken Marino, Michael Shannon, Melanie Lynsky and more. Watch the clip and check out the first poster below.
