Next month, Netflix will debutEurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which is …well, what is it exactly? It’s hard to say. The movie will star Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams as Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir, two contenders for the famed global music competition. The movie’s first trailer is actually just a music video for “Volcano Man,” which is probably the two’s entry into the contest? It’s shot as straightforward as possible which, of course, means it’s absolutely hilarious. Everyone knows Ferrell thrives on this kind of material but it’s been terrific to see McAdams bloom as a seriously talented comic actor in her own right over the last few years.
The movie also stars Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens and Demi Lovato, and is headed to Netflix on June 26. Can’t wait.
