Watch Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader in The Skeleton Twins Trailer

The two "Saturday Night Live" alums reunite as depressed twins in the upcoming dramedy

Ever miss the days when tuning into Saturday Night Live was all you needed to do to get a dose of Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader’s amazing chemistry? Well, the upcoming movie The Skeleton Twins could be just the thing you’ve been missing.

True, the film’s premise — a set of estranged twins are reunited after they each experience a brush with death — is much darker than the usual SNL fare, but the trailer proves that Wiig and Hader, as the titular twins, still have that old spark. That dance to “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” alone is reason enough to check out the film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews. The film, which was directed by Craig Johnson and written by Johnson and Mark Heyman, even won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

The Skeleton Twins will hit theaters across the U.S. on September 19.
