Check out the first official trailer for Man Up, the upcoming romantic-comedy starring Lake Bell and Simon Pegg.
Bell plays Nancy, a single woman who decides to go along with a bit of a lie when 40-year-old Jack (Pegg) mistakes her as his blind date.
There seems to be a good bit of charm here, with Bell and Pegg showing off a decent amount of chemistry. The trailer itself – as is now the norm – may give away a little too much, but it nevertheless provides confidence in a feel-good film. We’re in.
Olivia Williams, Ophelia Lovibond, Rory Kinnear, and Stephen Campbell Moore also star.
Man Up hits the UK on May 29.
Official synopsis for Man Up:
Nancy (Lake Bell), is done with dating. 10 times bitten, 100 times shy, she’s exhausted by the circus. So when Jack (Simon Pegg) blindly mistakes her for his date, no one is more surprised than her when she does the unthinkable and just —- goes with it. It’s going to take a night of pretending to be someone else for Nancy to finally Man Up and be her painfully honest, awesomely unconventional self… but will Jack also Man Up, and be able to get over her duplicity? Best just to let the evening unfold, roll with the consequences, and see if one crazy, unpredictable, complicated night can bring these two messy souls together.
