Will Forte Invents 'National Lampoon' in the First Trailer for David Wain's 'A Futile and Stupid Gesture'
The story of comedy magazine and movie house National Lampoon has been explored multiple times through books and documentaries, and now it will get the dramatization treatment via director David Wain. Starring Will Forte as founder Doug Kenney, the film is set to open at Sundance next month.

Before it arrives in full, we get our first taste of the flick with a trailer. The film features a wide variety of comedic actors taking on various roles (though their visual representation of the real-life comedians is mocked with an in-joke from narrator Martin Mull).

Watch the trailer for the film below. The film hits Netflix on January 26.
