The Leslye Headland written and directed Bachelorette made its official debut at Sundance earlier this year, but the film won't arrive in theaters until September, with an On Demand release coming up in just a few weeks. The film boasts a pretty fantastic cast of females (and some great supporting males), with Rebel Wilson, Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan playing a group of former high school friends reunited to celebrate one of their approaching nuptials.
As you'll see in the trailer (via iTunes) the story follows Rebel Wilson's character Becky, a bride-to-be who's looking forward to celebrating her bachelorette party with her old friends (Dunst, Fisher and Caplan). Only it seems she and they have different ideas in mind for how this party's going to go. Despite Becky's efforts to keep the party tame, the evening takes some wild turns and shenanigans ensue.
I'm not sure which I liked better, Dunst's facial expression when she learns her friend is getting married, or Fisher's various hand-gestures to describe what she has in mind for the party. Bachelorette certainly has a great cast. In addition to the four leading ladies, the film also stars James Marsden, Kyle Bornheimer and Adam Scott, the latter of whom co-starred with Caplan in Party Down. Beyond the obvious star-power, the film looks like it's aiming for goofy and wild female-focused fun, and there's certainly plenty of appeal in that. Also, I think it's worth mentioning that Headland was a writer for FX's short-lived but excellent detective drama Terriers, which boosts my anticipation up a few more notches.
Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, Bachelorette arrives in theaters September 7, however the film will be available to rent on iTunes on August 10.
