Watch the offbeat trailer for Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner's first movie

Anyone expecting a ponderous period drama like Mad Men will be surprised by this first trailer for series creator Matthew Weiner's quirky indie comedy Are You Here, which stars Owen Wilson, Amy Poehler, and Zach Galifianakis.

When his best friend Ben (Galifianakis) arrives with the news that his father has died, awkward weatherman Steve Dallas (Wilson) joins him on a road trip to attend the funeral. But when Galifiankis unexpectedly ends up inheriting the vast majority of his father's estate, his sister Terri (Amy Poehler) objects, sparking a courtroom stand-off. The heart of the movie clearly lies in Steve and Ben's friendship: "That's the thing about friendship," says Steve. "It's a lot rarer than love because there's nothing in it for anybody."
