When Judd Apatow produces a romantic comedy, most audiences expect the movie to get hard R rating in the manner of Forgetting Sarah Marshall or Bridesmaids. From the 2.5 minutes revealed in the first trailer for The Five-Year Engagement, as well as the movie's cute, fake-wedding website, it looks like it may be tame enough to be rated PG-13.
The comedy, starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, follows a couple who are (surprise!) engaged for five years. From what can be learned in the trailer, the plot seems to rely on the premise that the couple cannot get married because they live in Michigan. But, as it turns out, counties in the state of Michigan do indeed issue marriage licenses, so it's unclear what's preventing a wedding from taking place. Hopefully, the movie's next trailer shows us something with more promise, and less generic rom-com-ness. Watch the trailer >> Posted 12.08.11 by Mandy
With Emily Blunt's casting in Iron Man 2 only weeks old, it appears she may not be able to take part in the forthcoming sequel from Marvel Entertainment after all. Variety reports that Blunt was indeed offered the role of Black Widow, but her commitment to another movie, Gulliver's Travels, co-starring Jack Black and Jason Segel, may get in the way, with the production schedule for both movies being too close together.
Further messing with Blunt's potential involvement in Iron Man 2 is movie studio Fox, which has Blunt on the hook to make another movie for them and may force her to do Gulliver. So far, Fox and Blunt's representative are optimistic that she can do both movies, but everyone knows how much Fox likes to complicate other studios trying to produce a superhero movie.
