If you're one of those people who regularly finds yourself craving more Kristen Wiig  in your life (really, who isn't?), this should make your day: The first trailer for her upcoming movie, Welcome to Me, has just been released. 

The film stars Wiig as an Oprah-obsessed, former veterinary nurse with Borderline Personality Disorder who wins an $86 million lottery jackpot—which she then spends to create and star in a TV talk show about her own life. It garnered rave reviews at last year's Toronto Film Festival.

Aside from already being a critical success, Welcome to Me is bound to be Wiig's boldest move to date (bar her utterly fantastic Grammys performance with Sia and Maddie Ziegler, of course): There's a scene in which the SNL alum goes full-frontal in a casino—a move Wiig told E! was "completely terrifying."

Slated for release in early May, the dark comedy has an all-star supporting cast, including Jennifer Jason Leigh, James Mardsen, Wes Bentley, Joan Cusack, and Tim Robbins. Also worth noting: Will Ferrell produced it, and Bill Murray really, really liked it.

"It's one of the strangest movies I've ever seen," said Murray during the premiere. " The bravery to make this movie is pretty impressive. It's quite a piece of work. I mean, the funny stuff is maybe bolder than anything we've seen in a very, very long time." Not too shabby.
