An amusing first trailer has been released for Leslye Headland’s upcoming comedy Bachelorette, which stars Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, and Isla Fisher as three best friends who are asked to serve as bridesmaids for an old high school friend they used to call “Pigface” (Rebel Wilson). Comparison’s to last year’s smash comedy Bridesmaids are unavoidable – and no doubt the success of that film helped get this one funded – but it looks as though there are enough differences here to make Bachelorette worthwhile, and the talented lead actresses ensure this is a must watch. Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, the film is based on a play by writer/director Headland – who formerly wrote for FX’s superb series Terriers – and also stars Kyle Bornheimer, Hayes MacArthur, James Marsden, and Adam Scott (whose inclusion makes this somewhat of a Party Down reunion).
Bachelorette hits US theatres on September 7. Check out the first trailer and poster below (via The Playlist).
