It’s finally here! The second red-band trailer of Why Him? is finally out! Although moviegoers might have seen this a couple of times before, 20th Century Fox Philippines released the clip through their YouTube page on Wednesday (November 16, 2016) for the benefit of the online community and James Franco fans all over the world.
Starring James and Bryan Cranston, the second trailer reveals more of an overprotective father and a well-meaning but foul-mouthed boyfriend who find themselves at wit’s end trying to prove something to each other. As early as now, I can tell that couples going through meet-the-parents issues can definitely learn a thing or two from this movie! Even though I’m not part of that target group, I’m still excited to see this in cinemas next year.
Here’s the trailer for your reference:
Following a sentimental moment before visiting her college daughter, Stephanie (Zoey Deutch), Ned (Bryan Cranston) along with his wife Barb (Megan Mullally) and Scotty (Griffin Gluck) felt awfully surprised upon meeting his daughter’s boyfriend, internet billionaire Laird Mayhew (James Franco – it suits him perfectly, to be honest). After an awkward initial meeting with the shirtless Laird, the family soon warms up to Laird… but not Ned! The tension grew at its most intense when Laird revealed to Ned that he’s about to pop the question to Stephanie. Determined that he’s not good enough for his daughter, Ned goes on an all-out war with Laird to stop him from asking his daughter to marry him.
Why Him? is an original story by director John Hamburg along with Jonah Hill and Ian Helfer (so expect this to be a crazy flick!), produced by a team of guaranteed blockbuster filmmakers consisting of Shawn Levy, Ben Stiller, and Dan Levine.
A hilarious kind of date movie for clashing in-laws, Why Him? opens on February 1, 2017 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
Block off your schedule! Take it from me, this looks like a hilariously good movie.
