Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan star in the Playing it Cool trailer
For all his talent, Chris Evans hasn’t been able to break into the romantic comedy genre. His last attempt, WHAT’S MY NUMBER, was almost unwatchable and his newest rom-com, PLAYING IT COOL has been in some sort of limbo for quite a while and from the looks of the first trailer, I don’t think Hugh Grant has anything to worry about. The film is about a writer that doesn’t believe in love until…wait for it…he meets the perfect girl and falls in love. And yes, I realize this is something we’ve seen a hundred times before. On the plus side, it does have Aubrey Plaza and you can never have too much Aubrey Plaza. But check out the first trailer below and see if this is something you’re into.
PLAYING IT COOL does have quite an impressive cast considering what it is. The film stars Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Philip Baker Hall, Giovanni Ribisi and Martin Starr. The Justin Reardon directed film doesn’t have a theatrical release date yet, but I’m guessing by the looks of it, we can expect an early 2015 release date, probably to ride the wave of Avengers mania.
