First Trailer For The Between Two Ferns Movie Looks As Absurd As You'd Expect

Between Two Ferns: The Movie hits Netflix on September 20.


For some reason, Netflix is turning the Zach Galifianakis fake interview show Between Two Ferns into a movie. Now, the first trailer has arrived--and it is every bit as absurd as you'd expect.

The story is that Galifianaskis accidentally and temporarily drowns and kills actor Matthew McConaughey during a segment of his show. His boss, Will Ferrell, is understandably upset. So he sends Galifianakis out on a road trip to log 10 more celebrity interviews to get back in Ferrell's good graces and potentially earn a network talk show of his own.
