Earlier this summer, the first trailer for New Year’s Eve, Garry Marshall’s latest romantic comedy featuring a gaggle of stars celebrating a terrible holiday, featured Josh Duhamel spouting convenient, blanket statements about life (“Some people swear there’s no beauty left in the world, no magic”), intertwining plot lines you could, more or less, figure out immediately (Lea Michele and Ashton Kutcher’s characters will fall in love by the time the ball drops), and that ubiquitous Pink song.
Now there’s a second trailer that features Josh Duhamel making convenient, blanket statements about life (“A resolution can become a revelation”), and obvious story lines (I’m taking Mandi Bierly’s prediction that “Seth Meyers and Jessica Biel’s characters will compete with another couple to have the first baby born in New York in the New Year – and lose. But he loves her anyway” to the bank). But… wait…no Pink song?!
So some things are a little different in the new preview, including more insight about Sarah Jessica Parker’s character (she’s the frazzled mother of a rebellious, flashing Abigail Breslin), why Katherine Heigl hates Jon Bon Jovi so much (though Sofia Vergara clearly doesn’t), and that everyone involved will have some sort of life-altering New Year’s Eve. Watch the full clip, which spares its other Oscar winners Halle Berry and Robert De Niro from screen time, below.
