Orange UK has released an international trailer for 500 Days of Summer, which presents the movie as a much more traditional romantic comedy about a couple falling in love. And I’m not saying that the film isn’t a love story, it is, but if anything it isn’t traditional.
The movie is told in flashbacks and flash forwards, the film begins with Summer and Tom’s break up, and the story is also largely about Tom trying to figure out what went wrong, trying to reestablish a connection, trying to get over the break-up…etc. And that story seems to be completely absent from this new trailer. That said, its not a bad trailer, its just a bit misleading. Fox Searchlight is releasing the film in the US starting on July 17th, I highly recommend it! Watch the trailer after the jump.
