The Jennifer’s Body trailer has finally been released, and it sure steams up the screen. The Jennifer’s Body trailer release has been hotly anticipated, because it is going to be the first vehicle where Megan Fox basically stands alone as the star of the show. From the first look, the Jennifer’s Body trailer definitely seems to be aimed at a teen audience, and it also seems a bit campy in its presentation. The Jennifer’s Body trailer is linked at the end of this article, so feel free to take a look after reading about not only the film, but its writer and lead actress here. It’s a sure thing that the Jennifer’s Body trailer will become quite popular simply because of its star.
The Jennifer’s Body trailer is quick to point out that the writer of the film is none other than Diablo Cody. Diablo Cody is the Oscar winning writer of Juno, who also created the television show United States of Tara. Now she returns to the big screen, hoping that the newly acquired star power that Megan Fox is carrying around can translate to box office success for Jennifer’s Body. Just by viewing the trailer, it is very obvious that this isn’t going to be the typical teen fare or horror film that has been on the screen recently, but it also seems exactly like the type of movie that Cody would create.
The synopsis of Jennifer’s Body, is that a cheerleader becomes possessed, and turns into a killer that focuses on taking out her male classmates. It looks like Megan Fox is the villain who has been possessed, and in the trailer it seems like her close friend is going to be either the one who tries to stop her, or figures out just what Jennifer has become. The supporting cast for the film includes Amanda Seyfried as her friend, and J.K. Simmons, Adam Brody, and Johnny Simmons in other roles. Amanda Seyfried has been seen in films like Mean Girls, and most recently Mamma Mia!.
It is definitely going to be interesting to see how this film does in theaters, because it almost has that feel of one of the Scream films. Scream was always good at blending humor in with the horrific things taking place, and Jennifer’s Body looks to really take a stab at both humor and horror in the same instance. The draw will of course be Megan Fox, but word of mouth for this film will probably be very important in whether it succeeds or not. Jennifer’s Body is set to hit theaters on September 18, 2009, so it is still a few months out, but you can now enjoy the early release trailer.
