Rough Night Red Band Trailer Offers Up Women Behaving Badly

Rough Night, a raunchy, “wild night” effort that is perhaps something like the Bad Moms for The Hangover fans, gives us a very different arena for Scarlett Johansson. The rest of the cast, who are hilarious, are playing closer to their comfort zone than Johansson, who we’ve grown accustomed to watching beating the hell out of someone.

That makes this a somewhat more important venture than might be assumed because it could easily become a film that shows her versatility, or highlights the fact that she can only stray so far from the kinds of films that have put her on top of the box office money list.

If we can believe the trailer is an accurate look at things, she seems to hold her own, and while this could ultimately be a bit of trainwreck that isn’t as funny as it thinks it is, at this point, it looks pretty good.

The film, as is almost overly explained in the trailer, revolves around five friends from college who reunite 10 years later for a crazy bachelorette weekend. The film starts us down a road of fairly normal, but wild, retreat for friends who really need to blow off some steam, but suddenly shifts when they accidentally kill a male stripper. Dark hilarity ensues as the women try to cover up the crime.

Rough Night also stars Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer and  Zoë Kravitz.

The film also serves as an interesting test for co-writer/director Lucia Aniello of Broad City. Given that the trailer seems to provide evidence that Broad City is a fair predictor of the film, it should be hilarious.

Take a look below and let us know what you think.

Rough Night is headed your way June 16th.
