We’ve got a brand new trailer tailor-made for showing off the comedians that fill out the father roles of the film, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, as well as a super-wide poster doing the same thing, via IMP Awards.
“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 ensemble cast definitely has potential, including the likes of Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Jennifer Lopez, Chace Crawford, Chris Rock, Matthew Morrison, Thomas Lennon, and Joe Manganiello, with a cameo from the UK’s Cheryl Cole, and this new trailer and poster are clearly aiming at showing off the comedy elements to pull in a wider audience, and it seems quite promising.
Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) has directed a script written first by Heather Hach (Freaky Friday) with a rewrite coming from Shauna Cross (Whip It), with the original source material being Heidi Murkoff’s book of the same name.
What To Expect When You’re Expecting will be out in cinemas on 23rd May in the UK, and a little earlier on the 18th May out in the US. Until then, here’s the new trailer, and as usual with the new poster for below, you can click to enlarge.
