“Bridesmaids,” the would-be female counterpart to “The Hangover” co-written by and starring Kristen Wiig, has not benefited from the greatest marketing so far — but the new international trailer boosts our confidence, if only for the surplus of a partially nude Jon Hamm.
The new two-and-a-half-minute spot for the film contains all of the winning elements of the first trailer (Wiig guzzling white wine from the bottle and AC/DC‘s “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” set to a montage of lady antics) as well as some new draws (food poisoning at the bridal parlor and extra footage of Hamm as the world’s least/most desirable boyfriend)
Most promising is the extra face time for Melissa McCarthy. The “Mike & Molly” star’s performance is getting the a lot of buzz leading up to the May 13 premiere. She could end up being the film’s biggest draw.
Unless, of course, they’re still holding back on the Hamm.
