In today’s streaming climate, it does seem that rom-coms have been delegated to direct-to-streaming status, but that isn’t stopping Sony from betting on two of the most undeniably attractive actors today.
Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick) and Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria) star in Anyone But You, and we have our first trailer:
Here’s the official description:
In the edgy comedy Anyone But You, Bea (Sydney Sweeney) and Ben (Glen Powell) look like the perfect couple, but after an amazing first date something happens that turns their fiery hot attraction ice cold – until they find themselves unexpectedly thrust together at a destination wedding in Australia. So they do what any two mature adults would do: pretend to be a couple.
Admittedly, the biggest story of this movie was that the two stars were suspected of having an affair seeing as Powell and Sweeney had such great chemistry with each other, but the stars themselves have put the rumor down.
But it is telling that Powell’s ex Gigi Paris had unfollowed Sweeney on social media around the time the photos of Powell and Sweeney started coming out online.
Either way, both stars are ridiculously known for their looks and this feels like a classic jab at Hollywood trying to draw an audience in with solely star power. I hope Powell and Sweeney just have what it takes to be a box office draw.
Anyone But You comes exclusively to theaters on Dec. 15.
