Will Ferrell Gets Serious for the ‘Everything Must Go’ Trailer

Alcoholic. Out of work. Tossed out by his wife.

These are not the kinds of things that begin a wacky adventure, but Will Ferrell looks to be digging into his Stranger Than Fiction light drama past to deliver his performance for Everything Must Go. In it, he plays a man with all three aforementioned qualities in addition to his new station in life: living on his front lawn in a state of prolonged yard sale.

It’s unclear just how dire everything will turn, but it’s likely he won’t be praying to newborn, baby Jesus to get him out of this mess.

Check it out for yourself:

The trailer appears to be fairly surface level, and since the movie was based on a short story from Raymond Carver, I get the feeling that they’re holding something back (since Carver never did). Plus, this is the first feature film from writer/director Dan Rush, so his tone is as much a guess as what’s inside Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase.

This could be a bit of light drama, or it could be a devastating trip through mid-life puberty.

Fortunately, we’ll all get to find out May 13th.

Would you go see it?
