Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, And Owen Wilson Wear Silly Outfits In The New ‘Masterminds’ Trailer

Jared Hess has been searching for that proper successor to Napoleon Dynamite since 2004, and thus far it hasn’t quite panned out. He hasn’t directed a film since 2009’s Gentleman Broncos, but actually made two this year. Don Verdean, co-written by his wife, Jerusha (which I saw at Sundance), and Masterminds, written by Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer, and Emily Spivy, starring Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, and Owen Wilson as a trio of armored car robbers, with Jason Sudeikis as a hitman. Like you’ve never seen them before, because they’re wearing some outrageous hair and clothes.

It opens with Zach Galifianakis screaming into the camera and only gets more over-the-top from there. Silly costumes and hair for everyone! Then there’s an AC/DC song, and MORE silly costumes and hair! I mean I don’t want to gild the lily here but this movie looks sure to be a real treat for lovers of humorous hair and clothes. It sort of looks like the pitch was “Like the Simpsons, if every character was Homer!”

I still laughed at the car crash and cat’s eye contacts though, so who knows. Opens August 19th.
