If you’re not familiar with the name Christopher Guest, you are ignorant of one of the true super-gods of cinematic comedy, whose films like Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, and A Mighty Wind are among the funniest of all time. His latest work is Mascots, an original film that will premiere on Netflix next month, and which now has an extremely funny trailer online.
The trailer for Mascots has much of the renowned Christopher Guest stock company in full effect, including Fred Willard, Ed Begley Jr., Jane Lynch, John Michael Higgins, Michael Hitchcock, Bob Balaban, Parker Posey, and more. It’s centered around an appropriately Guestian competitive sports mascot championship, the participants of which (this is just a guess) take themselves way, way, way too seriously.
You can watch the trailer for Mascots below. And the movie itself is coming to a Netflix account near you on October 13th, 2016.
Here’s the trailer:
