‘Wanderlust’ Trailer with Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston
Originally slated for release this fall, David Wain’s follow-up to Role Models is now scheduled for release on February 24, 2012. Despite rumors of bad test screenings and reshoots, at least the studio has almost four months to get awareness and buzz going for Wanderlust. The trailer lays out the plot in quite a bit of detail, with funny appearances by Malin Akerman, Justin Theroux, Ken Marino, and Joe Lo Truglio. Kathryn Hahn, Kerri Kinney, and Ray Liotta also star.
As for Rudd and Aniston, they seem to be playing… Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston. Likable charm we’ve seen together on Friends and separately in films like I Love You, Man and The Break-Up.
Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in “Wanderlust,” a raucous comedy from director David Wain (”Role Models”) and producer Judd Apatow (”Knocked Up”) about a couple who leaves the pressures of the big city and joins a freewheeling community where the only rule is to be yourself.
George (Rudd) and Linda (Aniston) are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George’s awful brother in Atlanta.
On the way there, George and Linda stumble upon Elysium, an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. Money? It can’t buy happiness. Careers? Who needs them? Clothes? Only if you want them.
Is Elysium the fresh start George and Linda need? Or will the change of perspective cause more problems than it solves?
