HOW TO BE SINGLE Teaser Features Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson Playing the Field [81 Screenshots]

I didn’t know how badly I needed this movie until the trailer fell into my lap. As a newly single twenty something myself, the How to Be Single teaser could not be more relatable – and I know I’m not the only one who believes this. Based on the novel of the same name written by Liz Tuccillo, Rebel Wilson takes center stage in her first leading role alongside Fifty Shades of Grey’s Dakota Johnson; something I’ve been looking forward to since she arrived on the scene in such female powerhouse films like Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids.

In the How to be Single teaser we are introduced to Robin (Rebel Wilson), who is mentoring Alice (Dakota Johnson) as a newly single woman. Alice, still reeling from her breakup, is finding that the struggle is real to be single. She doesn’t know how to talk to guys, when it’s appropriate to use emojis, and essentially how to play the dating game. We’re given glimpses of a few other characters, like Alison Brie and Jake Lacey, but the teaser really focuses on Robin and her dynamic with the completely clueless Alice. It does lean heavily on Rebel Wilson and a few quick vagina jokes, but I am really rooting for this one. The moment where she poked fun at Alice “reflecting” is excellent and I was really feeling their choice of songs; “Worth It” by Fifth Harmony has been stuck in my head for a week.

This teaser definitely screams chick-flick – something I am totally okay with – but I am wondering if we will get some male insight? Who are these other “lonely hearts,” and will we see their dilemmas explored or will the focus remain heavy on Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson? Are we going to get more Alison Brie?!

I know this is a rom-com, and you typically can’t expect too much from these, but this is a plight that I feel is so relevant. You come out of a long relationship and suddenly there’s Tinder, you can’t respond to text in a certain amount of time and he liked your Instagram picture, but hasn’t texted back?! The whole thing, when you step back, seems completely ridiculous and here is the movie to poke fun at it. I hope it mirrors back what I’ve seen and been frustrated with. I hope it allows us to all have a few laughs and a collective sigh of relief that we aren’t the only ones floundering with how much of a game dating has become. Whether this film can do that remains to be seen, but I’m feeling good about this teaser.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for How to Be Single, courtesy of Warner Bros.:

There’s a right way to be single, a wrong way to be single, and then…there’s Alice. And Robin. Lucy. Meg. Tom. David. New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, be it a love connection, a hook-up, or something in the middle. And somewhere between the teasing texts and one-night stands, what these unmarrieds all have in common is the need to learn how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love. Sleeping around in the city that never sleeps was never so much fun.

Directed by Christian Ditter, How to Be Single stars Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, Damon Wayans Jr., Nicholas Braun, Anders Holm, Lily Collins, Jake Lacy, and Jason Mantzoukas. The film hits theaters on February 12, 2016. So if you are single on Valentine’s day, book this one with your girlfriends.

Second ‘Poltergeist’ Trailer Continues to Proves Superfluousness [50 Screenshots]

As the impeding threat of the latest horror remake, Poltergeist, draws ever near, the marketing continues to batten down the hatches to confirm that it will have all your favorite bits from the original. If you’ve never seen the 1982 horror film, I guess this film is shrouded in interesting mystery and full of some frights, but for true fans, this latest trailer is pretty much a slap in the face.

I’d like to understand the necessity of this Poltergeist remake other than the fact that they needed to update the television set for this generation. They might as well make a modern version of You’ve Got Mail because AOL is extinct and people use Tinder now. Sam Rockwell is amazing in most any role he touches, but I’m dumbfounded on the idea that someone saw this necessary to remake.

Most of this footage is rehashed from the first trailer, only this time voiced over by the typecasted Jared Haris, who lays down the foundation of plot for the uninitiated. While he delivers a most bland explanation of what’s happening to the Bowen family, scenes mirroring the original flash by to ensure that this Poltergeist reboot is as superfluous as someone texting in a movie theater. There’s no place for it and it makes me rather upset.

The practical effects of the original are more wonderful to behold when viewing the original Poltergeist. From the scene in the bathroom to the tree to the closet door to the house of cards, it’s all better to see that practically done than with over the top CGI. Please Hollywood, just stop.

Here’s the, courtesy of 20th Century Fox, for those who have never seen the original Poltergeist before:

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

Directed by Gil Kenan, Poltergeist stars Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon, Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, Kennedi Clements, and Nicholas Braun. This film hits theaters on July 24, 2015.
