What are the chances? That is the question the "Long Shot" trailer tease asks.
Liongate Movies released the shot video Wednesday, teasing the trailer before it drops on Friday. Movie fans only get to watch 15 seconds, but they're full of stars Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen as their ostensibly mismatched characters.
Theron's character, Charlotte, is a top diplomat running for president, while Rogen's Fred is a struggling journalist. She also happens to have been his first crush. When Charlotte hires Fred to spice up her campaign speeches, sparks fly. What ignites is what the synopsis describes as a "profane, funny and unexpected love."
The romantic comedy also stars O'Shea Jackson Jr., Andy Serkis, June Diane Raphael, Ravi Patel, and Alexander Skarsgård. It's directed by Jonathan Levine based on a script by Dan Sterling.
"Long Shot" opens May 3, and before then, look for its official trailer on Feb. 15.
