Two years after its debut in France, Jean Dujardin’s follow-up role to his Oscar-winning performance in “The Artist” is coming to America. Titled “The Players” (“Les Infideles”), the film is being distributed by The Weinstein Company, which just released a trailer for the film.
“The Players” is an omnibus comedy starring Dujardin and Gilles Lellouche (“Therese,” “Tell No One”) as several different men in a series of vignettes about male infidelity. Segments were directed by Dujardin, Lellouche and “The Artist” director Michel Hazanavicius, among others.
The film attracted a certain amount of controversy in 2012 for a handful of posters deemed sexist by some critics. At any rate, the film seems to be a pretty broad sex comedy, a bit removed from the pastiches Dujardin and Hazanavicius are best known for. “The Players” hits theaters on April 4. Watch the trailer below.
