Justin Long and Cobie Smulders both have a likability that works well in romantic comedies. They can be naturally charismatic in movies, and that kind of charm can work wonders for a romantic comedy. Long and Smulders – which sounds like an insurance company – starring in a romantic comedy sounds appealing and we’ll soon see them in Literally, Right Before Adam, which might not qualify as a traditional rom-com. There’s comedy, yes, but the romance may be dead since it’s about Long’s character being invited to his ex-girlfriend’s (Smulders) wedding.
Below, watch the Literally Right Before Adam trailer.

Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for Tony Goldwyn‘s Conviction, the “inspirational true story” of Betty Anne Waters (played by Hilary Swank), “a high school dropout who spent nearly two decades working as a single mother while putting herself through law school, tirelessly trying to beat the system and overturn her brother’s unjust murder conviction.” Sam Rockwell plays her brother, and the supporting cast includes Minnie Driver, Melissa Leo, Peter Gallagher, and Juliette Lewis. Seems like they took the Erin Brokovich formula, combining an inspirational true story with some great Academy Award winning and nominated actors. The voice over is a bit much, and the musical cue from Avatar is a bit distracting (yes, I know its originally from The Island…), but overall it looks like it could be a good film.
Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
