If you were a fan of Will Gluck’s last film Easy A you’re going to love Friends with Benefits. It’s his upcoming non-romantic comedy that stars Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake as two friends who give each other certain benefits — like sex. Over at Moviefone they’ve released a red band trailer that features a lot of curse worlds, semi-nudity, and Timberlake’s head somewhere that it shouldn’t be. Take a look…
Friends with Benefits centers on a young female headhunter (Kunis) in New York convinces a potential recruit (Timberlake) to leave his job in San Francisco behind and accept a job in the big apple. Despite an attraction to each other, both realize they’re everything they’ve been running from in a relationship and decide to become friends… with benefits. It’s the perfect arrangement–until they realize there’s no such thing as no strings attached.
To be completely honest this trailer doesn’t look that much different from the one we saw yesterday for No Strings Attached with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. It’s the upcoming comedy from Ivan Reitman that centers on two friends who agree to have a sexual relationship free of commitment. In other words the plots for the films are the same, and they both star tall guys opposite petite girls.
Friends with Benefits hits theaters on July 22, 2011.
