If you weren't one of the lucky few who made it out to Park City a few months ago, this past week has been a good time to get a taste of what you missed. Trailers have been arriving for Sundance hits like the Brit Marling starring sci-fi drama "Another Earth," Ben Stiller produced British comedy "Submarine," and the John C. Reilly-starring coming-of-age indie "Terri." Plus The Beastie Boys even released their short film "Fight For Your Right: Revisited" in it's entirety, which had it's debut in January during the festival. The latest trailer to hit the web is for "Our Idiot Brother" (formerly "My Idiot Brother") which got picked up by the Weinstein Co. at the fest and is set for a late summer release.

If you weren't one of the lucky few who made it out to Park City a few months ago, this past week has been a good time to get a taste of what you missed. Trailers have been arriving for Sundance hits like the Brit Marling starring sci-fi drama "Another Earth," Ben Stiller produced British comedy "Submarine," and the John C. Reilly-starring coming-of-age indie "Terri." Plus The Beastie Boys even released their short film "Fight For Your Right: Revisited" in it's entirety, which had it's debut in January during the festival. The latest trailer to hit the web is for "Our Idiot Brother" (formerly "My Idiot Brother") which got picked up by the Weinstein Co. at the fest and is set for a late summer release.

This one has been high on our must-see list primarily due to a ridiculously stacked cast including Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones, Emily Mortimer, Adam Scott, Steve Coogan and Hugh Dancy among others. Our man at Sundance gave it a B+ and said "If “My Idiot Brother” were just funny people being funny, it would be a far lesser film. But it’s about people being people—making mistakes, getting it wrong, trying to put it right" which sounds pretty good to us. While it's not the strongest trailer in the world, it does show off it's impressive cast (as well as Rudd looking like a sideman in Fleet Foxes) and keep our excitement up for the film. The biggest question mark here is director Jesse Peretz whose last film "The Ex" wasted a similarly impressive cast in what looked like a made-for-TV movie. Still, we're trying to remain optimistic that this will be a late Summer surprise. Check out the trailer for yourself below.

“Our Idiot Brother” will hit theaters on August 26th. [via Bleeding Cool]
