Goats Trailer: David Duchovny’s Animal Magnetism

Goat Man. It's not the newest, oddest choice for a Marvel movie superhero; instead, it's the name of David Duchovny's character in the comedy Goats, which finds the actor donning a beard, shedding his clothes, and making repeated goat noises to the delight of Graham Phillips and Vera Farmiga (also, possibly, you). Phillips plays a voice-over-stricken prep school kid who's trying to find himself, bouncing between his hippie mother Farmiga and his more straitlaced father Ty Burrell, who's romancing a pregnant Keri Russell. Also, Justin Kirk is in there somewhere, but there's not much time for him in the trailer, on account of all the goat noises.
