If yer a fan of the Wilson brothers -- which is to say, of course, Groucho, Harpo and Chico -- they'll all be together on May 7 at 7:30 p.m. We can even tell you where: at the Inwood Theatre on Lovers Lane, for the long-awaited premiere of The Wendell Baker Story, which Luke Wilson wrote for he and big bro Andrew to direct.

The film, in which Luke plays a seller of fake IDs to migrant workers who winds up trying to save an old-folks' home run by Owen, has already had its "world premiere" -- at the South by Southwest Film Festival way back in March 2005, which was, like, 30 Luke Wilson releases ago. But the movie, which also stars Eva Mendes and Harry Dean Stanton, finally has a release date: May 18. More details to come; after the jump, the movie's trailer. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
