Move over Tina Fey, another SNL alum has decided to write and star in a film about women for women, and it’s Kristen Wiig! Wiig has built a serious presence in films over the past few years, and 2011 will be her time to shine as she joins forces with Maya Rudolph and Rose Byrne for a wedding-centric comedy called Bridesmaids. The first official trailer for the film has been released on Apple, and we’ve got it for you below…
Surprisingly, this film doesn’t look as funny as we thought it would. There are a lot of talented people involved, but it comes across as — bland. Are we being too harsh?
Bridesmaids is produced by Judd Apatow and co-stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper, and Melissa McCarthy.
This spring, producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) and director Paul Feig (creator of Freaks and Geeks) invite you to experience Bridesmaids. Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony.
Annie’s life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.
Bridesmaids opens in theaters everywhere on May 13.
