The Perfect Distillation Of The Internet
Webseries come and go, but Funny Or Die's Between Two Ferns brought a particular brand of weirdness to the Internet. Hosted by Zach Galifianakis, this spoof of self-important celebrity interviews was a perfect riff on pop culture and celebrity in general. The last two episodes aired in 2016 and 2018 respectively, so it's been a minute since we've seen Galifianakis' particular brand of strange.
A New Netflix Movie
Luckily, Netflix is coming to the rescue with a new feature length film, Between Two Ferns: The Movie. Featuring cameos from a whole slew of A-listers, including Matthew McConaughey, Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Brie Larson, and Benedict Cumberbatch. It will drop on the streaming service on September 20, and is definitely not coming to theaters.
Will It Work In A Longer Form?
While the trailer is hilarious, it will be interesting to see how the traditionally short form comedy will translate to a full length movie. Will his schtick grow old or is this just a new realm to conquer? I guess we'll see later this month.
