A Futile and Stupid Gesture dir. David Wain)
Premiering at next month’s Sundance Film Festival and arriving on Netflix the week after, the latest from Wet Hot American Summer director David Wain is a comedic biopic documenting the rise and controversies surrounding the infamous National Lampoon comedy magazine and film “studio”. Known for its outlandish, raunchy humor and, with its production of John Landis’ Animal House (which now sits in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry), the company had a wildly tumultuous ride up the ranks of the comedy world. Starring Will Forte as founder Doug Kenney, the film looks like it’s accentuating the outlandish of the magazine’s history as well as hinting at the in-house fighting that threatened to tear them apart. As one scene indicates, this may not be for dog-lovers. Release Date: January 26th, 2018, via Netflix
