If you've seen "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!," then the surreal, random, WTF-mess trailer for Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim's "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" will seem right at home. If you're not familiar with their work, it might not make any sense at all.

Tim & Eric

If you've seen "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!," then the surreal, random, WTF-mess trailer for Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim's "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" will seem right at home. If you're not familiar with their work, it might not make any sense at all.

Regardless, even without the ability to go as filthy as they did in the red-band spot, the new all-ages friendly green band trailer doesn't skimp on the absurd, or on the shrim. The plot for this one is very simple: some people give Tim and Eric a billion dollars to make a movie, they waste it, open a mall (it seems) and now are facing the wrath of Schlaang corporation. All that said, Chef Goldblum is still the biggest laugh in this thing, but holy hell, this looks totally nuts (in a great way).

Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Will Forte all pop up for cameos in the movie that will premiere at Sundance and go VOD on January 27, 2012 before landing in theaters two months later on March 20, 2012. Watch below. [Apple/ComingSoon]
