David Wain's 'They Came Together' Has a Super Funny Poster

Director David Wain's new movie, They Came Together, is our most anticipated comedy film of 2014, and Buzzfeed just debuted a poster for the movie, a rom-com parody starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, that's packed with jokes and some out of context quotes from the website Deadline. They Came Together premieres at the Sundance Film Festival later this month but doesn't have an official release date yet.

Check out the first clip from the movie, the full-sized poster, and a statement about the film from David Wain below (via Buzzfeed):

Statement from David Wain: "After having already made world-changing cinematic statements on adolescence (Wet Hot American Summer), religion (The Ten), service (Role Models), and community (Wanderlust), I teamed up with Michael Showalter to take on a topic that (to our knowledge) has yet been seen in the movies: ROMANCE — particularly heterosexual romance between two white people.

Our next idea was to mix this romance story with humor – so you could almost call this a Romantic-Comedy, so to speak.

We first worked with Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd on Wet Hot American Summer. They played summer camp counselors in that movie, so it was obviously hard for us to imagine them playing a shopkeeper and a corporate executive, respectively. But thanks to a team of acting coaches and an award™ winning VFX team, we pulled off the illusion."
