Jennifer’s Body Trailer Released

Here is the plot via Wikipedia.

The film follows Jennifer (Megan Fox), a mean-girl cheerleader possessed by a demon who begins feeding off the boys in a Minnesota farming town. It is then up to her “plain Jane” best friend Needy (Amanda Seyfried) to kill Jennifer, escape from a correctional facility and go after lead singer Nikolai (Adam Brody) and his Satan-worshiping rock band responsible for the transformation.

Three things can make this movie work:

Diablo Cody: Coming off of winning and Oscar and a BAFTA for Juno, you can expect that everyone will have all eyes on her next feature as well as expectations of her wit dripping all over the screenplay. The trailer clearly shows they’ll be tons of that.

Karyn Kusama: Sundance Film Fest Grand Jury award winner for her movie Girlfight, Karyn got suckered into directing the film adaptation of Aeon Flux which gave her nothing more then frustration and a flop in the box office after over 30 mins of the film was cut after final edit. This is Kusama’s second chance at gaining a more broader appeal.

Megan Fox: ’nuff said.

The film is scheduled to be released September 18th by FOX Atomic in the US. That’s my only only problem with the whole thing. FOX Atomic had about….two blockbuster movies in it’s whole history. All the rest of their collection so far has been released in “dump seasons” (Sept-Nov and Jan-April for all you layfolk). This would be a great movie to release in October, but for some reason, everyone and their moms are scared shitless of the Saw franchise, even when it’s on it’s last legs. So, October is is off limits.
