If you’re at all sceptical about the upcoming sequel in the American Pie series, you’ve got nothing to worry about. Everything we’ve seen so far – which includes two terrific trailers, and plenty of other great stuff – has been completely spot on.
With all of the original prinipals from the original three films reprising their roles, American Reunion looks like it’s going to be one of next year’s best comedies.
One of the first things we saw from the film was the teaser poster back in August, and MTV Movies have now got the first proper poster to share with us, and it’s brilliant, paying homage to American Pie’s instantly recognisable poster from way back in 1999 (which you can see underneath in case you’ve forgotten, courtesy of Wikipedia).
The film’s been co-written and -directed by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the pair that brought us Harold and Kumar, and they seem to perfectly get the feel of the first three films. All signs so far are excellent.
American Reunion reunites the cast for the first time since 2003 – can you believe it’s been eight years? – just as their characters are returning to their home town for a class reunion too, which is why it’s so perfect that this first poster takes us back to day one of American Pie. We’ll get to see once more Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Seann William Scott, Mena Suvari, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Shannon Elizabeth, Eugene Levy, Jennifer Coolidge, and John Cho, with 30 Rock’s Katrina Bowden being the main new addition to the cast as Oz’s girlfriend.
Due out on 6th April next year, I think we’ve got every reason to expect American Reunion to be a huge success. As this poster rightly says (and I think this is genuinely a brilliant tagline for the film), Save The Best Piece For Last. Enjoy. As usual, click to enlarge.
