John C. Reilly and Jonah Hill

If you aren't familiar with the Duplass brothers yet, you soon will be. Jay and Mark have been honing their collective filmmaking skills since about 2002, when they started filming some of their own projects.  2005 brought audiences (mostly of daytime cable movie channels) their first full-length feature, THE PUFFY CHAIR, a film that really started to show the duo's potential. And by 2008, with the release of their second full-length BAGHEAD, they were informally known as leaders of the so-called "mumblecore" movement.

Now with CYRUS the Duplasses, who typically work with little (or no) star power, have a cast that includes John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Marisa Tomei, and Catherine Keener, along with one funny trailer. Jonah plays the titular CYRUS, the 21-year-old son of Marisa Tomei's, who has a serious case of mommy issues that kind of flare up when John C. Reilly has the chance to end his lonely misery and date Tomei. Check out the trailer after the break and let us know what you think!
