Finn Wittrock & Zoe Chao in Romantic Comedy 'Long Weekend' Trailer
"Are you… real?!" "You don't know everything about me…" Sony Pictures has revealed an official trailer for a romantic comedy called Long Weekend, marking the directorial debut of the producer / writer Stephen Basilone. The basic logline synopsis for this doesn't say much: a down-on-his-luck struggling writer, meets an enigmatic woman who enters his life at the right time. The trailer reveals a bit more - everything takes place around a meteor shower, and both of them seem to be hiding some secrets. But there's a hint in this trailer that makes me wonder if this is an update on Ruby Sparks, and he "imagined" this perfect woman? We'll see. Finn Wittrock and Zoe Chao co-star, with Wendi McLendon-Covey, Damon Wayans Jr., Jim Rash, and Casey Wilson. It doesn't look so bad, might be worth a watch after all. Check it out below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Stephen Basilone's Long Weekend, direct from YouTube:
