Trailer Debut: Friends With Benefits

The red band trailer for the raunchy comedy Friends With Benefits has debuted online. Directed by Will Gluck (Easy A), it stars Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake as old friends who decide to add “casual sex” to their roster of mately activities.

I know what you’re thinking. Didn’t we just watch a trailer about friends who agree to have casual sex with “no strings attached”? You’re absolutely correct. It was called No Strings Attached. But, as Hollywood tradition dictates, all films must be released in conjunction with an almost exact facsimile (think Armageddon/Deep Impact, Cop Out/The Other Guys, Killers/Knight and Day).

Friends With Benefits is the more enticing project, if only because we’ve not seen stars Kunis and Timberlake in a billion other romcoms, as we have with the stars of No Strings Attached, Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. Also, director Gluck is coming off the pretty funny Easy A, whereas NSA’s director Ivan Reitman is coming off My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

Also, Friends With Benefits does not skirt around the raunch, as we assume No Strings Attached will. Check out the RED BAND trailer below – but ONLY if you’re over the age of 17. You’ve been warned!

Friends With Benefits also stars Emma Stone, Patricia Clarkson, Woody Harrelson and Richard Jenkins. It arrives in U.S. cinemas July 22, 2011, with an Australian release to follow.
