Attempting to ignite some fire under this untraditional relationship RomCom and strike some buzz away from Friends With Benefits, Paramount has decided to release their own red band trailer for Ivan Reitman’s (Meatballs; Ghostbusters; Year One) No Strings Attached. This is a funny trailer, but was it the right move? Check out for yourself after the jump to see just how raunchy this movie will get.
No Strings Attached stars Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Greta Gerwig, Mindy Kaling, Olivia Thirlby, Kevin Kline, Cary Elwes, Lake Bell, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, and Jake Johnson releasing in theaters January 21st!
With that release date, was it so smart to launch a red band trailer with so many jokes smashed into it this late? The trailer is great, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it might have sparked more interest in people now that they know it’s not so much a cookie cutter RomCom and now a little more dirtier than expected, but I think the trailer gives away too much. Releasing the red band trailer was a good move, but I believe they put too many scenes into it. Be warned, if you watch this trailer expect to see practically the whole story laid out for you and a lot of the jokes given away. Hopefully there is a lot more to it than what is in the trailer and hopefully this could revitalize Ivan Reitman’s career after Year One, which was an awful mess, especially if he is going into Ghostbusters III next. I still think Friends With Benefits will be better.
