A new trailer has landed for "Easy A" director Will Gluck's follow-up to his fantastic comedy vehicle that made launched Emma Stone's career into the stratosphere, and it wastes no time in giving up/ruining the goods. Cameos by Emma Stone and Andy Samberg are out of the way in the first 10 seconds, and hey, Woody Harrelson plays a gay dude! While we would've liked those surprises to have remained until we saw the film, we have to say, that we were still pretty charmed by this one and our optimism remains intact.

Friends With Benefits” centers on Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) who are good friends and fuckbuddies, but things become complicated when they decide to become romantically involved. Timberlake and Kunis look to be having a good time and are engaging enough, but like she did in "Easy A," Patricia Clarkson looks like she'll once again be walking away with whole scenes. She's easily the best thing in this trailer by a country mile and we can't wait to see more of her in the film. We only wish Stanley Tucci had joined her as well.

"Friends With Benefits" has a big, meaty summer release date of July 22nd. Check out the trailer below. [DigitalSpy]

    Woody looks to be the only funny person in the movie.

    I found her and Tucci to be quite hilarious in Easy A. Too bad the same thing couldn't be said for the main character. Emma Stone was a dolt and completely annoying in that weaksauce movie.

    In the age of - "Mel Gibson, no Liam Neeson, AND Paul Giammati are in it!" - I like that the trailer is owning the spoilers, so to speak. They are making sure that nobody but them gets to ruin the surprise. Kudos.

    Please, Patricia Clarkson was not good in " Easy A". She was out of her league , plus she was trying too hard to be funny. I was cringing whenever she was on screen. Now , Stanley Tucci , he will always be one of the best scene stealers. Tucci owned that movie . Also, Dan Byrd is very good in this movie- he needed more screen time.

    I still don't understand the big fuss about "Easy A"- the comedy, the dialogue, and the chemistry of the cast doesn't even come close to the classic , "Clueless". "Clueless" is that rare comedic film that is effortless from beginning to end- direction, acting, and material .

    "Shut up, Katherine Heigel! You stupid liar!"

    I am seeing it just for that.
