Todd Solondz's Dark Comedy

Amazon Studios and IFC Films have released the first trailer for Wiener-Dog, the new dark comedy from writer-director Todd Solondz that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

Starring Greta Gerwig, Ellen Burstyn, Kieran Culkin, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Tracy Letts, and Zosia Mamet, the film follows a dachshund’s experiences with four different owners and is partially inspired by Solondz’s break-out hit Welcome to the Dollhouse.

Wiener-Dog hits theaters June 24. See the trailer below and take a look at the film’s poster.

“I’m going to Ohio tomorrow, wanna come along?” “What’s in Ohio?” “Crystal meth.”

Todd Solondz's Dark Comedy

From director Todd Solondz (WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE, HAPPINESS), WIENER-DOG is a dark, starkly funny story of a single dog and the many different people she touches over her short lifetime. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener. Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip. After leaving Dawn, Wiener-Dog encounters a floundering film professor, as well as an embittered elderly woman and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something more. Solondz’s perversely dark comedy offers an appallingly honest look at the American experience, brought to life by its all-star cast.
