‘That Awkward Moment’ Red Band Trailer Mixes Boner Pills and Promising Young Talents


Anyone who saw his performance as a charming young drunk earlier this year in James Ponsoldt’s phenomenal The Spectacular Now has to be primed to get some more Miles Teller in their life. Well, there’s good news and even better news on that front. The good news is that he’s got a new comedy coming out soon called That Awkward Moment. The even better news is that a red band trailer for the film has been released, and we’ve got an embed of it right here.

That Awkward Moment sees Teller teaming up with Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan as a trio of hard-partying friends who all make a pact that they won’t get into serious relationships right around the time that each of them meets a girl who is just the sort of lady they’ve always dreamt about. You know, they’re the types of girls who you could get into one of those extra-special relationships, where you’re basically the same height, so your crotches line up when you lay next to each other, with. Anyway, That Awkward Moment seems like it has a handful of gags that land, its three leads are all real charmers, and it also includes a parade of comely young actresses like Imogen Poots, Addison Timlin, and Jessica Lucas who cycle through the story—but the real reason you’re probably going to want to click through and watch the trailer is to see Efron naked and trying to pee while he has a boner. We humans are simple creatures, after all.

The film, which is the work of first time writer/director Tom Gormican, is scheduled to hit theaters on January 31 of next year. That gives us a few months to see too many trailers for it and eventually get put off of the idea of even seeing it in the first place. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen though. Movie ad campaigns campaigns can get so lengthy and oppressive these days, and it really would be nice to see a bunch of people go out and support Teller in a starring role. This kid has what it takes to be a big deal.
