Last spring, Universal scored a touchdown with the Apatow-produced, Paul Feig-directed comedy hit “Bridesmaids,” and now, a year later, they’re hoping they can repeat that success. Apatow is once again working his wizardry behind the scenes, this time for director Nicholas Stoller and stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt in “The Five-Year Engagement.”
With the film just a couple of weeks away, the studio has dropped an armload of new images, giving us a better look at the cast, which boasts a helluva roster of supporting comic talent including Alison Brie, Chris Pratt, Chris Parnell, Rhys Ifans, Brian Posehn and more. The movie has also started screening, and the feedback has been pretty good thus far, with the film said to be in the “When Harry Met Sally” vein of romantic comedies, which is about as good as it gets. What can we tell about these photos? Well, at the very least, it looks like Segel will go through a couple different jobs through the span of the story. At any rate, we certainly dig the cast and folks both in front of and behind the camera, so we’re looking forward to this as well.
“The Five-Year Engagement” opens on April 27th. Take a look at the pics below. [clips via Collider]
