It might have taken ten years for this to come together (go here for the run-down), but The Women has finally been shot, and now we have the above trailer (you can also catch it on Yahoo). Based on the 1939 film by George Cukor, the film focuses on some gossipy high-society women who find out that the husband of one of them is cheating with a sexy shopgirl (Eva Mendes).
With more modern snark than the original, this one has all the requirements that have been super-glued to women-centric movies: marriage, gossiping, babies, shopping ... shall we keep going? What makes it really disappointing is that this incarnation was written by the woman who penned 37 episodes of Murphy Brown -- Diane English. I can only hope that there's more to it than the commercial shares. (Although it does offer gimlet goodness, which is always a plus.) But there's one thing we definitely won't see -- any emotive and subtle facial expressions from Meg Ryan. I miss the pre-face-freeze Meg days.
Starring Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Carrie Fisher, Debra Messing, Candice Bergen and Bette Midler, The Women arrives in theaters on September 12.
