Paramount Pictures has just released a red band trailer for their upcoming romantic comedy No Strings Attached. We should call it a non-romantic comedy because romance isn’t involved. It’s just straight to the point sex. The film stars Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher and is directed by Ivan Reitman. Not a bad combo. Check out the trailer below but beware there’s “grown folks” stuff in it…
We’re not sure if this is a worthy competitor to the trailer the other non-romantic comedy Friends With Benefits, which literally has the same premise. That movie features Portman’s Black Swan co-star Mila Kunis. Doesn’t that just scream irony? We guess they both needed a break after starring in the evil ballet drama!
In the film, Emma (Portman) and Adam (Kutcher) are life-long friends who almost ruin everything by having sex one morning. In order to protect their friendship, they make a pact to keep their relationship strictly “no strings attached.” “No strings” means no jealousy, no expectations, no fighting, no flowers, no baby voices. It means they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, in whatever public place they want, as long as they don’t fall in love. The question becomes- who’s going to fall first? And can their friendship survive?
No Strings Attached opens in theaters on January 21, 2011.
