If BRIDESMAIDS is anywhere near as funny as this brand new trailer (exclusive to Apple, so no embeds!), I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up doing WEDDING CRASHERS business. We're long overdue for a female take on the ol' out-of-control bachelor party formula, and you're not going to find a more formidable collection of comedic talent than this group.
Kristen Wiig stars as a single woman who finds herself in over her head when asked to be Maid of Honor at her best friend's wedding. Not a stunningly complex or original premise, but it looks like Wiig (who wrote the screenplay with Annie Mumolo), producer Judd Apatow, and director Paul Feig have put together something special. The impressive ensemble cast includes Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Ellie Kemper (so good on THE OFFICE), Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Matt Lucas, Jon Hamm and the late, great Jill Clayburgh in her final role.
BRIDESMAIDS hits theaters on May 13th, and is now my most eagerly anticipated release for that month not titled THE TREE OF LIFE.
