Five-Year Engagement Trailer Is a Pleasant Swirl of Comedy & Romance


Here’s the trailer for Five-Year Engagment, written by Jason Segal and Nicholas Stoller and starring Segal and Emily Blunt, set for release April 27. The trailer alone includes one party with champagne, one couple falling into a snowdrift, one twinkly-lit rooftop, and one scene of the couple running towards each other, which together earn it an official rom-com cuteness badge. It should be exciting to see if Segal and Stoller can breathe new life into the petrified corpse of the American romantic comedy. The movie also features Chris Pratt along with one Ms. Alison Brie talking in a British accent, so in the words of Splitsider El Hefe Adam Frucci, “lonely male comedy nerds on the internet, start your engines.”
