Red Band Trailer for Bad Teacher Starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake
02.23.11 by Ryan
Columbia Pictures has released a red band trailer for their upcoming comedy Bad Teacher, which follows Cameron Diaz as a foul-mouthed, money-hungry, middle school teacher who competes against another teacher (Lucy Punch) for the attentions of a substitute teacher (Justin Timberlake) who comes from a rich family.
Written by The Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (who also wrote Ghostbusters III, which, at this rate, won't be made until 2018) and directed by Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard, Orange County), Bad Teacher looks like the ultimate vehicle for Diaz, who, in the trailer, exhibits all kinds of, well, bad behavior: Cursing at her students; smoking marijuana; and treating gym teacher Jason Segel as horribly as possible.
Bad Teacher opens June 24. The movie co-stars John Michael Higgins as the school principal, and The Office's Phyllis Smith as Diaz's friend and fellow teacher.
