Noah Centineo has been making a name for himself through both his work on the Freeform network, as well as through some seriously fun Netflix original movies. The latter platform seems to be his niche home at the moment, as demonstrated in the trailer for his new film, The Perfect Date. Take a look at the footage below!
In The Perfect Date, our protagonist Brooks, played by Noah Centineo, is looking to score some money to put himself through college. Being of the mind to do anything for a fee, he takes an odd job that inspires him to create a business out of being a date for anyone who needs a plus one. It starts off as a one time incident, but when he impresses his first client, played by Laura Marano, she suggests he go pro. Which leads to their friendship, and of course, a budding romance that may or may not pay off in the end.
Co-starring Riverdale's Camila Mendes and Veep's Matt Walsh, The Perfect Date looks like yet another teen rom-com with which the internet is going to fall in love. And this in turn should only further fuel the resurgence that particular genre has recently enjoyed. It certainly helps that the film's lead is a bit of a familiar hand when it comes to making viewers fall in love.
Previously Noah Centineo starred with Lana Condor in the film adaptation of To All The Boys I've Loved Before, which was such a hit on Netflix last summer that it already has a sequel currently in production. But on top of his role in that particular film, Centineo also played the male love interest in another Netflix original, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, which only cemented his standing within the fanbase that's lauded both of those films.
What's interesting about The Perfect Date is that Noah Centineo is now shifting into the role of the stereotypical romantic lead, complete with his own quirks and pitfalls to explore during this latest project. The world is probably more used to him being the object of affection, so reading what his loyal fans think of his time on the other side of the equation will be a subject ripe for analysis in the weeks directly following this debut.
This is probably the best time for The Perfect Date to drop its trailer, as not only is the film arriving relatively soon on Netflix; but Noah Centineo has also been rumored to be in contention for the lead role of He-Man in the Masters of the Universe reboot. So not only will this new film benefit from the recent talk surrounding its star, but the actor is undoubtedly going to see a boost in viewers for his role, whether its from freshly stoking his pre-existing fanbase, or from newcomers who enjoyed the cut of his jib in the trailer above.
We'll see the end result when The Perfect Date arrives on our collective Netflix doorstep on April 12th.
