If the first trailer for Bachelorette didn’t pack enough blood, semen, cocaine or fellatio talk, then this red band tease should satisfy you. That initial look at Leslye Headland‘s indie dramedy seemed to go after more of the Bridesmaids crowd, while this one seems to rope in The Hangover fans. Thankfully, in our take at Sundance we thought it handled serious issues better than those two, including “obesity, bulimia, drug addiction and suicide in a surprisingly mature fashion.”
Regardless, it still looks like a heavily R-rated good time, with a strong cast including Bridesmaids’ own Rebel Wilson, alongside Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, James Marsden and Adam Scott. Both these teasers make it seem a bit over-the-top in attempting to push the envelope, but I’m ready for a more subversive take on wedding events (especially after the junk we got a preview of this week.) Check out the red band trailer below via Funny or Die and read our interview with both Rebel Wilson (here) and director Leslye Headland (here).
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.
