Watch: Leighton Meester Gets Fiesty in 'The Roommate' Trailer

Screen Gems has debuted the official trailer for their upcoming early 2011 cheesy teenage horror flick The Roommate starring a few hotties like Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly. I know there's an audience for these kind of horror movies or they wouldn't continue making them, but this just seems so much like The Stepfather or any of those teenage thrillers, and I just don't care about them. Of course, everyone's going to watch this because Meester and Kelly and everyone in it is so damn hot (and there's a shower scene!) but I can still say it looks awful. Watch if you want, but I'm not sure many of you will care about it either. Enjoy.
Watch the official trailer for Christian E. Christiansen's The Roommate from YouTube:
Freshman college student Sara (Minka Kelly) finds her safety jeopardized after she's assigned to a dorm room with a new roommate, Rebecca (Leighton Meester), who becomes increasingly obsessed with her.
The Roommate is directed by Danish filmmaker Christian E. Christiansen, of At Night and Zoomers as well as numerous episodes of a Danish TV show called "Mikkel og guldkortet" previously, but this is his first US film. The screenplay was written by Sonny Mallhi, usually an exec producer of other horror flicks delivering his first script. Screen Gems is bringing The Roommate to theaters on February 4th, 2011 early next year.
How much do these two chicks look alike ??? Looks the normal crap to be honest but good to see Minka Kelly in a big role. Hope it leads to better things for her.

Ryan on Sep 18, 2010
Looks to me like Minka Kelly is the one being stalked. I don't know...

I had a psychotic roommate in college. This could be cathartic... In a fun, cheesy way. On netflix. I wouldn't pay to see this.

These girls look wayy too much alike, I kept getting lost on who was who.

Why bother watching the film now when I can just see everything in the trailer?

I had a crazy ass roommate in college myself. But HE was no Leighton Meester...who I would not kick out of bed...even if she was creepily stroking my hair like a puppy while I slept...cuz she's, you know, fucking hot... That said, I look forward to watching the lesbian kiss scene on the internet somewhere around the time of its theatrical release and then going back to forgetting this film was ever made.

Dumb shit movie with a dumb ass lesbian scene to make it even worth while to watch.

This is gonna be really cool!

The director is from Denmark (just like Lars Von Trier and Bille August), and as a dane myself I'm SO embarrassed to see this kinda of shit come from a danish director. He even found american clones of the 3 girls he always feature in his films - non of them any talented. If this turns out to be anything like his past films, then don't waste your time. The girls might look hot, but there is nothing hot about this film - I promise you that! So I agree with the most of you guys comments! Btw. his next danish film is a complete rip-off of Bourne - just with a female lead. Sounds dumb...? Without question!
WTF?! on Sep 19, 2010
This looks lame. And I'm pretty sure Alex you have confused the actresses' names while writing the summary. Sara= Minka Kelly and Rebecca= Leighton Meesters.
F.C. on Sep 19, 2010
I think we can all agree here are all collectively dumber for what we have witnessed here today. Hahaha...so stupid!

They gave away far too much in this trailer. There isn't even any mystery left are to whom is doing what. Dumb. On the plus side - if there is one - is that the viewer you will be visually stimulated by the two leads in during this hackneyed retread. Others think so as well. Meester has already appeared in GQ Magazine: http://film-book.com/leighton-meester-gq-magazine-december-2009/ Anyway, this film screams STV but will somehow get a theater release. Good 'ol Hollywood.

I want my (500) days of Autumn 😛 Meester doesn't look evil enough, yes, it's bad.

Years ago there was a movie called: "Single White Female" with Bridget Fonda. This movie looks like a gorier version of that. I think I'll give it a miss.
Ezza on Sep 19, 2010
correct me if i'm wrong, but in SINGLE WHITE FEMALE, didn't the psychotic girl eventually want to take over her roommate's life rather than ultra-clingy?...forget it...this looks crap anyways.
chilin on Sep 20, 2010
leighton meesters the dirty blond just to clarify
amanda on Sep 21, 2010
and her hairs straight
amanda on Sep 21, 2010
Single White Female? They just changed it to college, changed the puppy to a kitten, and a few other things. I'll pass.
Hey Wowza on Sep 21, 2010
I agree with #26, it screams STV. The girls do look too much alike, and like others I completely lost track of who was who (I think Leighton's character dyes her hair darker to look more like Minka's character at some point). I think the only way it could be more confusing is if a younger Robin Tunney was in this. Overall something feels very drained with the story (besides it being a SWF rip-off). I mean, wealthy girl has family issues, mental illness, and becomes obsessed with her down-to-earth friend from school. This has most elements of a movie dealing with a psycho young woman. You'd think crazy might lead to some original ideas once in a while.

The is so played out should have been named roomies or your roommate or crazy chick that's gonna try to kill you at some point in this movie i don't know something...
neonblue120 on Oct 9, 2010
