I’ve been told that this newly released trailer for Bachelorette (via Apple) is just a very brief glimpse at what the actual film is about. It’s trying to capitalize on the Bridesmaids crowd, which means things need to look a lot happier and upbeat, while still showing that mean streak that the girls don’t want you to know about.
The film actually stars Bridesmaids actor Rebel Wilson, which is kind of a funny way to tie to the films together. Bachelorette is a more indie approach to the idea, with stars like Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher and Adam Scott anchoring down the solid cast list.
I’m really curious to see how the film turns out, mostly because I’ve been told that it’s a lot darker and more mature than the trailer presents it to be.
Bachelorette opens on VOD on August 10th and in theaters on September 7th, 2012.
Watch the trailer below:
On the night before an old friend’s wedding, three frisky bridesmaids go searching for a little fun but find much more than they bargained for. With lovely Becky (Rebel Wilson) set to marry her handsome sweetheart, Dale (Hayes MacArthur), the remaining members of her high school clique reunite for one last bachelorette bacchanal in the Big Apple. Regan (Kirsten Dunst) is an overachieving, ueber-Maid of Honor who’s secretly smarting over the fact that she’s not the first to marry, while Gena (Lizzy Caplan) is a whip-smart sarcastic who’s actually a closet romantic, and Katie (Isla Fisher) is a ditzy beauty who loves the good life. But when Becky insists on keeping the bachelorette party tame, the women proceed with an after-hours celebration of their own.
