Back in March we saw the first teaser trailer for Masterminds, the new comedy from the director of Napoleon Dynamite, starring Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. That sounds like quite the lineup of comedic talent in a film that may very well redeem director Jared Hess after his follow-up films underperformed and were poorly-received by critics and audiences. The new, full trailer is quite promising, and even more promising are the writing credits: Eastbound and Down collaborators Jody Hill and Danny McBride.

Let’s make this clear: A Deadly Adoption is not a spoof of a Lifetime movie, at least not in the way you’re thinking. It’s not obviously satirical, either, especially if you aren’t familiar with the Lifetime movie formula, like those of us blessed enough to grow up on a steady diet of Lifetime movies in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Instead, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig‘s new TV movie (kept secret for months, with Ferrell even outright denying its existence) is more of an homage, honoring the classic Lifetime movie tropes — it’s as if they’re filling out a MadLib.

The ladies are the stars of Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters film, and the first photos have leaked from the set, showing off Wiig, McCarthy and a messy McKinnon in costume as their wacky onscreen characters.

Last week brought an appropriately silly-seeming first look at Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s surprise Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption, though the full trailer paints a decidedly different picture. The spoof is subtler, but just what kind of movie will A Deadly Adoption turn out to be?

Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s forthcoming Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption has had a winding road to completion, first leaking to the press, then (jokingly?) canceled over the report, then back on. Now, there’s no stopping A Deadly Adoption (or a speeding truck) as Lifetime releases the first dramatic footage.

If you kept up with reviews and reactions out of the Sundance film festival back in January, then you’ve been keeping an eye out for The Diary of a Teenage Girl, the directorial debut from Marielle Heller starring Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgard and newcomer Bel Powley. The first trailer for the upcoming film has arrived, and like the trailer for fellow Sundance hit Me and Earl and the Dying Girl before it, The Diary of a Teenage Girl looks like it can definitely live up to the hype.

Yesterday, we got our first peek at Ridley Scott’s upcoming film The Martian, featuring a very lonely Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars (hence the title, obviously). Today brings a batch of new images from the film, featuring even more shots of Damon all alone on the red planet, plus a bonus photo confirming that yes, there are other people in this movie — namely, Kristen Wiig.

Regardless of where you fall on the current state of late night, Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show never lacks for bizarrely enjoyable stunts. Now, the same week that brought Hawkeye’s ode to himself sees Welcome To Me star Kristen Wiig stopping by the Tonight Show as Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi, for … reasons!

That Kristen Wiig is just full of surprises. Last night, we learned that Wiig and fellow hilarious human Will Ferrell filmed a secret movie for Lifetime (yes, really). Today, Wiig has another surprise for us: She’s joined the cast of Zoolander 2 (also featuring Ferrell), and you’re not going to believe what she looks like in this movie. It’s 100 percent outstanding.

You know the Lifetime Original Movie formula: heinous crime, family melodrama, over-acting and maudlin theatrics. Somewhere, there must be a Mad Lib form floating around the Lifetime offices in case they run out of steam. In what sounds like a ridiculous April Fools’ Day joke, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have combined their considerable comedic talents to take on that very formula — yes, really.
