Head Back to Camp Firewood With the Trailer For Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer Series

Wet Hot American Summer Netflix Trailer

Posted by on

The summer of your life is just around the corner, and it comes with a heaping pile of Amy Poehler and Bradley Cooper’s incredible dance moves! The Wet Hot American Summer series, subtitled First Day of Camp, is coming on July 31st and Netflix heralds its arrival with a new trailer. Taking the form of a spoof promo for the best summer camp of all time, Camp Firewood, the new footage is a ball that features the immense cast of the series. But, of course, it gets interrupted by some backdoor fondling, Molly Shannon’s orgasmic pottery making and twirling, and Paul Rudd just being Paul Rudd.

Watch the Wet Hot American Summer trailer below.

It’s now 14 years since the original film debuted and now the series is returning to the first day of this glorious camp. In just 8 episodes, WHAS will feature Poehler, Cooper, Shannon and Rudd, in addition to Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce and Michael Showalter, among others. The film version took place on the last day of camp at Camp Firewood and centered around the counselors as they attempted to settle their unfinished business before the season’s end. For the Netflix series, we’ll see the kick off of the first day.

Just by watching the new trailer for the series, you can get a sense of what the camp will be like. A glistening pond for swimming, caring counselors (who may also be more preoccupied with boning in the closet), impromptu cafeteria dance routines, arts and crafts, kayaking, archery gone wrong, and a gourmet chef. Considering how checked out the counselors were in the film, we’re assuming, you know, because this is the first day of camp, that they’ll be slightly more present. But, even then, there seems like a strong possibility that one of the campers will whip out their speedboat unceremoniously.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
