Valentine’s Day, the romantic comedy due out next February and stars 98.6% of the working actors in Hollywood, has released the first movie poster artwork and video trailer for the film. Here is the poster which lists all the actor’s who star in the film and quite a bit of info about the film itself:
OK, let’s do the rundown: Ashton Kutcher, Kathy Bates, Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx, Jessicas Alba and Biel, Bradley Cooper, Shirley MacLaine, Patrick Dempsey, Topher Grace, Queen Latifah, Taylors Swift and Lautner, George Lopez, Eric Dane, Hector Elizondo, Jennifer Garner — are we forgetting anyone? Oh, right. Emma Roberts, and her aunt Julia. From director Garry Marshall (‘Pretty Woman’) comes ‘Valentine’s Day’, a sweeping, meet-by-chance, ensemble comedy in the mode of 1999’s New Year’s Eve star-cluster ‘200 Cigarettes’ and 2003’s Christmas Eve, Brit-fest ‘Love Actually’. Only now the day in question is, of course, that fated day every February, the one Kutcher tells us “comes every year whether you like it or not.” Watch as perhaps the most star-studded cast ever assembled (not to mention two-fifths of a ‘That 70’s Show’ reunion) navigates love, sex and relationships on a day meant to celebrate the whole spectacular mess. From what we can tell about the entanglements, Cooper and Julia Roberts are working on a cross-country, plane cabin, V-Day romance, while a few thousand feet below, Biel’s strained relationship with Foxx has driven her to the point of bitterness, booze and helium inhalation. Grace, in a budding relationship with Hathaway, can’t seem to get his dates right, while Emma Roberts hopes the date may prove more … transformative. Homecoming super-couple Lautner and Swift seemed turned on by “the hype” of a local camera crew, and Kucther — who proposes to Alba on the grounds that she’s “too good for him” — is stuck delivering bouquets of roses to all of them. We’re probably leaving too much out, and as is par for the course with these types of films, Marshall probably has some lovely surprises in store for us along the way. But if the trailer is any indication, this film will a be fun, touching tour through not only what makes us crazy about V-day, but what about that day makes us crazy for each other as well. Valentine’s Day opens February 12, 2010.
Yeah, this movie is TOTALLY a Love, Actually type of film. That film, I loved … so I have high hopes that this movie will be just as entertaining. After the jump, check out the trailer for Valentine’s Day and judge for yourselves …
Bonus Trailer: In German!
Older folks will come out to see Shirley McClaine be fabulous and watch Julia Roberts mack on Bradley Cooper, the kiddies will come out to see Taylors Swift and Lautner smooch and there are enough actors in between for everyone else. This movie has the potential to be HUGE hit or a MAJOR failure. I can’t wait to see which one it will be. What do y’all think … are YOU interested in seeing this flick?
