Jason Segel and Emily Blunt Keep Not Getting Married in ‘Five-Year Engagement’ Trailer

I suppose I’m not really an appropriate figure to write the story of the new The Five-Year Engagement trailer. Apparently, five-year engagements are excessive. This was, until just a few moments ago (thanks to a couple of coworkers who set me straight on the issue), something about which I had no idea, seeing as the only people I ever really knew who were engaged were my sister and her now-husband. Their engagement lasted just shy of half-a-decade, and no one ever told me that they were the perfect candidates for a screwball romantic comedy.

Jason Segel plays Tom, a Jason Segel-type who finally proposes to his longtime girlfriend Victoria, played by Emily Blunt. Should go swimmingly! Until, of course, Victoria gets a job offer at Michigan University—quite a distance from the duo’s current home of San Fransico (and I DEFY you to not start humming “Everywhere You Look” when the camera pans over the Golden Gate Bridge).

Victoria’s two-year employment commitment gradually turns into five-years, putting quite a strain on the pair’s relationship. The question is: can they make it work in the end, finally getting married after such an (apparently) inordinately long engagement period?

The answer: who cares? Chris Pratt and Alison Brie are in this, so it’s automatically worth your time. The Five-Year Engagement is directed by Nicholas Stoller, and comes out April 27, 2012. Check out the new trailer and poster below.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
