'The Skeleton Twins' Trailer: Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig Find Humor Everywhere (Video)

The first full trailer for Craig Johnson’s The Skeleton Twins has hit the Internet.

The Skeleton Twins tells the story of two estranged twins, Milo (Bill Hader) and Maggie (Kristen Wiig), who come together after 10 years to rekindle their battered relationship and consequently rebuild each other’s damaged lives. However, former lovers, a megalomaniac mother and a sexy scuba instructor prove complicating factors to this imperfect reunion.

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions picked up the indie comedy-drama after its Jan. 18 premiere at the U.S. dramatic competition of the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the award for best screenplay. As THR film critic David Rooney wrote in his initial review, The Skeleton Twins “seems a strong contender to join the club of Sundance discoveries that went on to hurdle the indie niche.”
