Wedding Crashers co-stars Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams are reuniting for the new Netflix comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. The film premieres June 26th, and today the streamer dropped its first trailer.

Directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers, Shanghai Knights), the film follows aspiring musicians Lars (Ferrell) and Sigrit (McAdams), who are tasked in representing their Icelandic country in the titular song competition.

It should be noted that The Eurovision Song Contest is an actual international song competition, and it’s been held every year since 1956. This year, they had to cancel the show due to the pandemic, which makes the timing of this film oddly prescient.

It looks silly and hilarious and will be a great watch while we mourn the loss of this years Eurovision Competition!
