For the first time since 1994′s The Mask, Cameron Diaz comes across attractive in a film. I present to you the first trailer (a f*ck-filled red band at that) for the upcoming summer comedy Bad Teacher. Jake Kasdan (Orange County, The TV Set, Zero Effect) directs the script from The Office and upcoming Ghostbusters III writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg.
Justin Timberlake, who stepped up his acting game in The Social Network this year, co-stars along with Jason Segel. This marks the second R-rated sex comedy this summer for Timberlake, also starring in Friends With Benefits, from Easy A director Will Gluck. He will then star in the highly-anticipated sci-fi thriller Now from Andrew Niccol. Check out the Bad Teacher trailer below via MySpace.
Synopsis: A comedy centered around a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague — a move that pits her against a well-loved teacher.
Bad Teacher opens theaters June 24th next to The Green Lantern and Mr. Popper’s Penguin.
