Posted March 31st, 2011 at 4:20 pm

The first trailer for the drama Everything Must Go has arrived. In the film, which is based on a short story, Will Ferrell stars as an alcoholic who relapses and loses his wife and job and holds a yard sale in an attempt to start over. Everything Must Go, which premiered last year at The Toronto International Film Festival, does not yet have a release date but is expect to arrive in theaters sometime this year.

Adapted and directed by Dan Rush, and based on a short story by Raymond Carver, EVERYTHING MUST GO tells the story of NICK PORTER (WILL FERRELL) a career salesman whose days of being on top are long gone. The same day Nick gets fired, for falling off the wagon one last time, he returns home to discover his wife has left him, changed the locks on their suburban home and dumped all his possessions out on the front yard. Faced with his life imploding, Nick puts it all on the line – or more properly, on the lawn – reluctantly holding a yard sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival.
