The trailer has been released for Will Gluck’s latest film, Friends with Benefits, starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.
This film is a less-than-conventional love story of two friends who find they are far too busy to date, but agree to have a casual sexual relationship together. However, rather predictably, things get complicated when they begin to realise they’re more emotionally involved than planned.
Timberlake’s squeaky-clean pop star image might be long gone, he’s certainly looking to bring Sexy Back in this raunchy rom-com. It’s also a fairly different role for Kunis, who we last saw playing a ballerina in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan.
Friends with Benefits is directed by Easy A‘s Will Gluck, and features some of the same cast members, such as Emma Stone and Patricia Clarkson. Film veteran Richard Jenkins will also star, along with The Lonely Island‘s Andy Samburg and One Tree Hill‘s Bryan Greenberg. Jason Segel and Rashida Jones also have cameo roles in the film.
Friends with Benefits isn’t due to reach UK cinemas until 19th August, but you can check out the trailer below. Or, if you can’t wait that long, there’s always Ivan Reitman’s No Strings Attached – which looks like pretty much exactly the same film – starring Ashton Kutcher opposite Natalie Portman, which will be released on February 11th.
