We got our first look at the upcoming comedy Friends With Kids last summer, which sees Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm returning to the screen together this year after a very well-received turn opposite each other in Bridesmaids, one of the number of films gearing up for the Oscars next month.

Written and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt, who also stars, the film revolves around the lives of a couple who decide to have a kid together without being in a relationship. Along with Wiig, Hamm, and Westfeldt, the film has a great cast that includes Adam Scott, Chris O’Dowd (who was also in Bridesmaids last year, and who is one of the five 2012 Orange BAFTA Rising Star finalists), Maya Rudolph, Edward Burns, and Megan Fox.

Yahoo Movies have put up the first trailer for the film, and it looks like it has potential. It also looks like they’ve not just filled the trailer with all the film’s best and funniest moments, which is definitely a good thing – essentially, we can look forward to more than two and a half minutes of worthwhile viewing when it hits the cinemas.

Friends With Kids will be out in the States on 9th March, but we here in the UK are yet to secure a release date. With a bit of luck, we’ll be getting it in the next few months too. The film marks Westfeldt’s directorial debut, and it looks to be a good one, which could certainly put her in good stead if she wants to continue in the director’s chair. Here’s the first trailer for your viewing pleasure.
