The appropriately named New Year’s Eve is the story of several couples who’s lives come together on New Year’s Eve. With names like Robert De Niro, Aston Kutcher, Sara Jessica Parker and Jessica Biel this is one movie that is not to be missed.
New Year’s Eve has paired some of the most outrageous and unusual couples together which is sure to make the chemistry between each character much more interesting. Jon Bon Jovi and Katherine Heigl seem to have an interesting relationship demonstrated when Heigl slaps Bon Jovi after “planning it for years”.
Zac Efron’s partnership with Michelle Pfeiffer seems to be one that is truly unexpected and leaves many wanting to know if it will last. I for one am doubtful of the sustainability of this cradle robbing affair. But that doesn’t mean that others aren’t rooting for this controversial couple! If anything this will be an ingenious look at a couple attempting to break out of their contrasting generational stereotypes in order to make it work.
The trailer teases Jessica Biel announcing that her water broke to a very excited Seth Myers. The couple rushes to the hospital in hopes of having the first child born in 2012 (and the cash prize that is being given out to the parents of the first child born in the new year).
Aston Kutcher plays a slightly antisocial character dating Lea Michele who has a lively Type A personality. She is seen at the beginning of the trailer telling Kutcher, “Oh c’mon we’ve gotta do something to get you out of your new year’s eve funk”.
While the trailer explained a lot it has still left us in the dark on quite a few things. It was a bit of a shock to that Robert De Niro was nowhere to be seen in the trailer. Could they possibly be using such talent for a secondary character? I think I speak for most Robert De Niro fans when I say that I hope his talent is put to good use. IMBD reports his character as “Dying man in hospital” which leaves a chance that his character is a fundamental part of the story purposely left out of the trailer. Until his part in the story is confirmed we’ll just have to use our imagination.
Don’t forget to go see New Year’s Eve when it comes out on December 9, 2011.
