The casual sex epidemic rages on! New Friends With Benefits trailer.

Apparently there is some sort of “friends having sex with friends” epidemic sweeping America. Earlier this year we saw Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher agree to a No Strings Attached relationship, and now Portman’s Black Swan co-star Mila Kunis has signed a Friends With Benefits contract with Justin Timberlake.

A Red Band trailer for this pic landed back in November, and we agreed it was the more exciting of the two ‘casual-sex-concerned’ projects coming out. Then, I actually saw No Strings Attached … and liked it! So now, my expectations for this Will Gluck-directed feature are unreasonably high.

What’s not to look forward to? Gluck’s coming off the very good Easy A and has recruited a cast of appealing (and not overused) leads as well as a bunch of hilarious comic actors in supporting roles (Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Patricia Clarkson, Woody Harrelson and Richard Jenkins).

Anyway, this new Green Band trailer attempts to emphasis the sweetness over the previous trailer’s raunch. If that floats your boat, have a gander:


Friends With Benefits arrives in Australian cinemas September 22, 2011.

Discuss: So, now that the cast of Black Swan and The Social Network have paired up, which actors from other recent Best Picture nominees would you like to see in a ‘Friends With Benefits’ coupling? Jennifer Lawrence and James Franco? Jeff Bridges and Andy’s mom from Toy Story 3?

  1. >One thing I would never have bought is Woody Harrelson as a gay man (unless they dressed him up in buttless leather chaps, that is). Glad to see Jenna Elfman back onscreen. Would liked to have seen some more Emma Stone. Timberlake from the neck down is really hot. And Kunis is better at comedy than Portman.
