After his fantastically funny turn 21 Jump Street, I was hoping to see Channing Tatum do more comedy, and the trailer for 10 Years looks like it will be pretty funny — but I was surprised that it seems to have a little depth, too, not to mention a really strong supporting cast.
You can get the gist of the story from the trailer, of course, or read the official synopsis:
Jake (Channing Tatum) is deeply in love with his girlfriend (Jenna Dewan-Tatum, his real-life wife and Step Up co-lead), ready to propose – until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in ten years. Jake’s friend Cully (Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend, and has been looking forward to the reunion so he can finally apologize to all the classmates he bullied in high school. However, after a few too many drinks, the jock-turned-family man ends up reverting back to his old ways instead. Meanwhile, longtime rivals Marty and A.J (Justin Long and Max Minghella) spend the night still trying to one-up each other to impress the coolest girl in class (Lynn Collins), who now has a secret. The famous one of the group, Reeves (Drive‘s Oscar Isaac), is now a well-known musician, but is still too shy to talk to the high school crush (Kate Mara) who inspired his one hit wonder.
10 Years was written and directed by Jamie Linden (We Are Marshall). Aubrey Plaza, Scott Porter, Brian Geraghty, Aaron Yoo, Eiko Nijo and Nick Zano round out the cast. The film is out in theaters on September 14, 2012.
