Prepare for a powerhouse comedic coupling in the upcoming dramedy Downhill.

A remake of the 2014 Swedish hit Force Majeure, as the headline divulges it stars Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The key word – or portmanteau, we guess – here is “dramedy”. While there are funny moments, this is a look at the disintegration of a marriage during a ski trip to the Swedish mountains.

Miranda Otto and Zach Woods star alongside Ferrell and Louis-Dreyfus, while the pair who gave us The Way Way Back, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, direct.

Downhill is hitting Australian cinemas on March 5.
