Ahead of the release of What To Expect When You’re Expecting in two months, a new viral mini-site has gone up on YouTube promoting the film, giving us a new video and a handful of images to share with you, in which we see the aforementioned competing in an X Factor-esque show, Celebrity Dance Factor, judged by Cheryl Cole.
“Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane celebrity lives don’t stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy’s husband, Gary, struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who’s expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler. Photographer Holly is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn’t so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a “dudes” support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie and Marco’s surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?”
The film itself is (very loosely) based on the original bestselling baby book by Heidi Murkoff, and Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) is directing the adaptation first written by Heather Hach (Freaky Friday) with a rewrite from Shauna Cross (Whip It), essentially using the book as a jumping-off point for a romance-drama-comedy.
The ensemble cast is pretty impressive, with the likes of Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Jennifer Lopez, Chace Crawford, Chris Rock, Matthew Morrison, Thomas Lennon, and Joe Manganiello topping the cast, and as you can see here, we can expect (see what I did there?) a cameo from the UK’s own Cheryl Cole.
And to go with the new viral site, we also have a new poster pitching the film to the male audience, much like the last trailer and poster we saw, showcasing the fathers in the film, and the promise that there is ‘No Judging In Dudes Group’.
What To Expect When You’re Expecting will be hitting US cinemas on 18th May before coming to the UK just under a week later on 23rd May, so just two more months to the day until it reaches us here. As usual with the poster below, you can click to enlarge. And for the images of Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison, Dwyane Wade, Whitney Port, and Cheryl Cole as one of the contest’s judges, head over to the site here and click Photos.
