The first trailer for the new Will Ferrell/Amy Poehler comedy The House has come online and it's pretty wild.
Ferrell and Poehler play parents who can't afford to send their daughter to her favorite college. So what do they do? With the help of their neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas), they create a casino in their house, of course. The premise is crazy and so is the trailer, as basically everything associated with casinos--good and bad--is happening here. Poehler wields a flamethrower at one point, while someone unfortunately loses a limb as part of a shakedown gone wrong. It's all pretty wacky--take a look at the trailer below..
The House opens on June 30. It was directed by Andrew Jay Cohen and written by Brendan O'Brien alongside Cohen; they both worked on Neighbors and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, among other comedies.
A poster has also been released, showing Ferrell and Poehler as suave-looking casino operators. The movie's tagline is "If you can't beat the house, be the house."
