“I just continued the process of making the movie. I treated it as a screening,” "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner told EW about the less than enthusiastic response to "Are You Here" (retitled from "You Are Here") at TIFF last year. He adds that the finished movie is “actually quite a bit different than it was at Toronto.” But will it work better? We'll find out, with the first trailer for the film landing today.

Starring Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler, the story follows Ben Baker (Galifianakis), who inherits his estranged father’s fortune and teams with womanizing local weatherman Steve Dallas (Wilson) to battle the legal challenge brought by Ben’s sister (Poehler). It's a comedy with all the right ingredients, and while the mix might be a bit different now, we didn't like how it tasted last fall. Our own Christopher Schobert wrote in his review, that the film "is intended to be a comedy, and it is a laugh-free one that runs for almost two hours." Youch.

Here's hoping the new cut works a bit better. "Are You Here" opens on August 22nd. Trailer below and bonus round: Here's the video for Kevin Drew's "You In You Were" with Feist on vocals and Galifianakis doing his thing.

    The farmhouse they filmed at in this movie was built by my family in the 1800s, and I'm so excited to finally get to see it on the big screen! I spent my childhood there! I don't even care if the movie is good or not, but it does look fun. :) Love the cast.

    When your tagline and theme is as big a load of bs as that you're in trouble. 'There's nothing in it for anybody'. What about... uh... friendship?

    I saw it in Toronto and thought it was a great movie. I was entertained from beginning to end and Owen's performance is one of his best. I highly recommend seeing it!

    Matt I saw it at Toronto last fall and absolutely loved it!
    Perhaps if you had a longer attention span
    than a gnat you would have enjoyed it as well!

    Couldn't make it through the whole movie at TIFF, had to walk out.

    Yeah, this film is bad. I was almost intrigued by Weiner's quote about using the TIFF screening as feedback and continuing to edit after the fact, but watching that trailer brought those memories of the movie's horrible look/story/performances rushing back. I can't imagine he was able to salvage this.

    I like the chicken in the lower corner of the poster.
