Red-Band Trailer for ‘Sex Tape’ Reveals Sexy Theme, Emaciated Jason Segel
Bad Teacher was a surprise hit for director Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard) and stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel. The trio is back this summer with another R-rated comedy, Sex Tape. The red-band trailer for the film was released, giving viewing a nice insight into the plot of the film.
Diaz and Segel are married but bored and try to spice things up by recording themselves having sex. But, in a 21st century twist, the footage is unintentionally uploaded to their “cloud” account linked to their family, friends, and coworkers. Thus, the pair seeks to destroy all devices which have downloaded the footage. The actors are made for this material; Diaz shines as the foul-mouthed wife and nobody does “shame” better than Segel.
Aside from the sex and profanity and drug use and violence in the trailer, the most shocking thing you’ll see is that Jason Segel lost an incredible amount of weight. He is shockingly thin for this role, which I guess serves as a retort to the audiences who were turned off by his flabby physique in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. But after seeing pudgy Segel for so long, he looks… unhealthy at this weight. Which itself is a turnoff, I guess.
Sex Tape costars Rob Corddry (The Heartbreak Kid), Ellie Kemper (Bridesmaids), and Rob Lowe (Parks & Recreation). Also appearing, but not shown in the trailer, is Jack Black (playing the CEO of a porn company). The film is scheduled for release on July 25th.
