A new red band trailer for Friends With Benefits has been released. Starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, the Will Gluck directed comedy focuses on two young individuals who decide to enter into a relationship that is purely focused on sex. No feelings, no commitment, just sex. If it sounds familiar, it’s because we already saw the same plot earlier this year with No Strings Attached.
To me, I think this one looks better than the Ashton Kutcher/Natalie Portman rom-com. Friends With Benefits looks a bit more edgy/witty than No Strings Attached and likely won’t be as sappy and cheesy as Ivan Reitman‘s stab at the premise.
With supporting roles being played by Andy Samberg and Emma Stone, the film looks quite entertaining and genuinely funny. Kunis is easy on the eyes and it looks like her and JT have great chemistry. And, as we saw in The Social Network, Timberlake can bring charm and charisma to just about any scene.
Aside from the aforementioned cast members, the film stars some wonderful character actors like Patricia Clarkson, Woody Harrelson and Richard Jenkins.
Friends With Benefits will be released on July 22nd, watch the trailer below.
