It seems today is the day when trailers for movies shot in 2012 and have been sitting on a shelf are finally arriving. In case you missed it, the first trailer for Susanne Bier‘s “Serena,” starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, just dropped, and now comes the debut promo clip for “Playing It Cool” (which is either the international or new title as it was previously called “A Many Splintered Thing“) and we’re curious why this film has been collecting dust.
Starring a pretty good (on paper at least) ensemble including Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Philip Baker Hall, Giovanni Ribisi and Martin Starr, the sorta-meta Justin Reardon directed movie follows a screenwriter who wants to write an action film but is pushed by his agent to do a rom-com instead. The twist? He doesn’t believe in love. Ruh-roh!
Frankly, it looks like any number of standard, forgettable rom-coms and not something so dreadful that it needs to be hidden away. And yet, at this point, the movie is still without a U.S. release date or distributor. So check out this international trailer below. Maybe 2015 will see this thing finally drop?
