Ed Helms, Owen Wilson Look for Their Father in “Bastards” Trailer

Warner Bros. Pictures has just delivered the first trailer for its new comedy “Bastards” starring Ed Helms and Owen Wilson which may be viewed here:

Opening across the Philippines on January 26, 2017, “Bastards” marks the directorial debut of the veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher (“The Hangover” films).

Helms and Wilson play Peter and Kyle Reynolds, two brothers whose eccentric mother (Glenn Close) raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father, learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know.

Oscar nominee Glenn Close (“Albert Nobbs,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) stars as the twins’ mother, Helen, and Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-actor Terry Bradshaw (“Failure to Launch”) join the cast as potential father figures.
