After having been delayed from October 7th to February 24th, the Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston comedy Wanderlust has its first trailer. The comedy about a couple from New York City who crash at a bed and breakfast on a modern day hippie commune is directed by David Wain from a script by Ken Marino, who also co-stars in the film.
The supporting cast of Wanderlust reads like a comic dream team. It includes Malin Akerman, Alan Alda, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenney, Ray Liotta, Lauren Ambrose, Kathryn Hahn, Michaela Watkins, Justin Theroux, Todd Barry, and Jordan Peele. That’s not all however, as director David Wain also tosses in roles for sitcom legend Linda Lavin and country singer Reba McEntire.
David Wain chronicled the making of Wanderlust on his blog at DavidWain.com while the promotional campaign for the film kicked off in August with Wain offering a very funny parody of his friendship with Paul Rudd and the making of Wanderlust for GQ. That was when the film was being released in October.
The very funny trailer establishes the fish out of water premise with ease before setting up potential obstacles to Rudd and Aniston’s marriage, including Akerman’s free spirit who has a tantalizing offer for Rudd and Justin Theroux‘s commune leader who makes use of a milking cow to hit on Aniston.
Check out the first trailer for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments.
Wanderlust opens in theaters nationwide on February 24th.
