Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader impress in the trailer for upcoming dramedy The Skeleton Twins

Skeleton Twins

It’s always great so see actors take on a project that is out of their comfort zone. Former Saturday Night Live stars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader are both immensely talented comedic actors, as evidenced during their time on SNL and their successes in comedy classics such as Bridesmaids and Superbad respectively. The Skeleton Twins is a bit of a change of pace for both actors, giving them a chance to flex their dramatic muscles a bit more than usual. If the trailer is any indication then both Wiig and Hader look set to knock it out of the park, equally as comfortable playing the dramatic scenes as the comedic ones.

Here’s the synopsis for the film:

Estranged twins Maggie (Wiig) and Milo (Hader) coincidentally cheat death on the same day, prompting them to reunite and confront the reasons their lives went so wrong. As the twins’ reunion reinvigorates them, they realize the key to fixing their lives may just lie in repairing their relationship.

The Skeleton Twins will be released in Australian cinemas on September 25th.
