Today we get two new red band trailers for two films that actually look like they’re going to be a lot of fun. Not exactly award worthy, but just enjoyable and entertaining. First up is No Strings Attached, starring Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman. Hitting theatres on January 21st, the film is about two friends who try to keep their relationship strictly physical, and along the way, find out that it may be harder than they think to do so. It looks like a bit of a raunchy romantic comedy with enough laughs to keep it afloat.
Kutcher is always entertaining and who doesn’t love Natalie Portman? Don’t expect anything amazing here but from the looks of this trailer, it could be a good date movie. The trailer shows off some truly funny moments and I’m looking forward to seeing the full thing.
Next we have a red band trailer for The Mechanic, the new action film starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster. This remake tells the story of a hitman, Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham), who takes on an apprentice, Steve McKenna (Ben Foster). Reluctant at first, Arthur eventually warms up to Steve and trains him as the two form a partnership that sees Arthur taking Steve deep into his world.
Statham always delivers in the action genre and Foster is a solid actor who is under appreciated. With supporting roles going to Donald Sutherland and Tony Goldwyn, you can be sure this one will entertain. It opens January 28th.
