Here's a hilarious new red-band trailer for the upcoming comedy The Change Up, which star Ryan Reynolds and Jason Batman. It's rare for a trailer to make me laugh a lot, but that is exactly what this trailer did. I think the movie looks freakin' funny, and I can't wait to see it. This is a great team up of actors that are going to give some very fun performances.
The story follows two friends who one night wish they could live each others lives. The wish comes true, they switch bodies and hilarity ensues. I know this is nothing new and that it's been done before, but it still looks like it going to be good. Bateman and Reynolds is what will sell this movie.
The movie was written by The Hangover screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, and also stars Leslie Mann, Olivia Wilde and Alan Arkin.
Here's the films synopsis:
Growing up together, Mitch (Reynolds) and Dave (Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they've slowly drifted apart. While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked. To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitch's stress free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true.
Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave's worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other's bodies and proceed to freak the &*#@ out.
Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each other's lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed. Further complicating matters are Dave's sexy legal associate, Sabrina (Olivia Wilde), and Mitch's estranged father (Alan Arkin). With time not on their side, Mitch and Dave comically struggle to avoid completely destroying each other's lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back.
The film is set to be released on August 5th 2011. I hope you enjoy the trailer below, let us know what you think when you're finished watching it.
