20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for the upcoming comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses.

Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride!
An ordinary suburban couple finds it's not easy keeping up with the Joneses, their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors. Especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. "Jones" are covert operatives. Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher star as the next-door neighbors who open their arms to their beautiful new cul-de-sac couple, played by Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot. But they are about to get much more than they ever bargained for.
Greg Mottola directs Keeping Up with the Joneses. He made his feature directorial debut with the comedic drama The Daytrippers, which arrived way back in 1996 and starred Parker Posey, Liev Schreiber, Hope Davis and Stanley Tucci. After directing several episodes of Arrested Development, Undeclared and The Comeback, he became acclaimed for the teen classic Superbad, which arrived in 2007. Since then, he has directed such comedies as Adventureland and Paul. After directing four episodes of HBO's hit drama series The Newsroom, Mottola returns to the big screen for the first time in five years with Keeping Up with the Joneses.
Michael LeSieur is responsible for the screenplay. He previously scripted the 2006 comedy You, Me and Dupree. He is currently working on the fully animated big screen reboot of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Producers are Laurie Macdonald, Walter F. Parkes.
Keeping Up with the Joneses will be part of a jam-packed weekend when it arrives this fall. A total of six new releases are hitting theaters on October 21, including the Tom Cruise sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween, Pure Flix's drama I'm Not Ashamed, Focus Features' A Monster Calls and Universal's horror sequel Ouija: Origin of Evil. Surely Keeping Up with the Joneses will rise to the top of the heap. If you're not convinced, take a look at the first footage and photos. You just can't go wrong with a pairing like Hamm and Galifianakis.
