Trailer Battle: ‘No Strings Attached’ VS ‘Friends With Benefits’

Director Will Gluck had a fairly middling (yet harmless) introduction with the world through Fired Up! but his follow-up, Easy A, has earned him a place as one to watch. With more eyes on him, he’s chosen to make Justin Timberlake perform oral sex on Mila Kunis while singing a Semisonic song.

Ivan Reitman, on the other hand, is a veteran. He’s the man who directed every movie you liked in the 80s. He’s hit a snag as a director recently (with My Super Ex-Girlfriend), but he’s on fire as a producer.

Friends with Benefits is the Casual Sex Between Friends Armageddon to No Strings Attached‘s Deep Impact. Both movies deal with the same exact plot, both involve incredibly attractive people that in no way would ever realistically be hurting for carnal pleasure, and both come out around relatively the same time.

Who will come out on top? Probably Kunis, but you should check out both trailers and weigh in for yourself.

First up, it’s the (not for children, Red-Band) trailer for Gluck’s Friends With Benefits:

Next at the plate, it’s Reitman’s No Strings Attached:

One’s a green band and the other is red, so take that into consideration, but at the current moment No Strings Attached seems to have a little more heart. That goes a long way, especially when all that cunnilingus faces the reality about feelings that arise during sex.

Also, they’re just trailers, so we’ll have to wait until the films come out to really, truly judge.

But this should do for the mean time.

What do you think? Which trailer reigns supreme?
