Will Ferrell hasn't had many opportunities to ring the cowbell at something more serious than a movie like 'Anchorman,' but films like 2006's underrated 'Stranger Than Fiction' proved he's capable of tackling a dramatic role. This May, audiences can see him in the dramedy, 'Everything Must Go,' which marks the debut of director Dan Rush. It's based on the short story, 'Why Don't You Dance?' by Raymond Carver, and as our own Monika Bartyzel said in her review of the movie, " ... it allows Ferrell to stretch his true talents and once again find the humor and pain in life's woe."
Ferrell stars as Nick, a relapsed alcoholic who loses his job and finds himself on his own front lawn with all his belongings after his wife kicks him out of the house. He holds a four-day yard sale -- for beer money, of course, -- and that's where Ferrell gets to engage in a bit of dark humor as Nick is forced into semi-responsibility.
We've got an exclusive peek at the poster for 'Everything Must Go' which shows a straight-faced Ferrell hanging onto his clothing, which has been strewn across the middle of the street. You almost don't recognize the guy without that goofy grin, and it's quite welcoming. Check out the full poster after the jump, and you can see 'Everything Must Go' in theaters on May 13th.
