Universal has released a new red-band trailer for Bridesmaids along with six character posters. I caught the film a couple weeks ago and overall I thought it was fantastic and a much-needed kick in the ass to the chick flick genre. Women, if you like raunchy humor but are tired of only seeing it in movies featuring man-children, you’ll dig Bridesmaids. Guys, if you’re thinking about avoiding this movie because of the all-female cast, you’ll be missing out. The movie is damn funny and surprisingly heartfelt and I hope folks of both genders go see it.
Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer along with six character posters. Bridesmaids stars Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper, and Melissa McCarthy. The film opens May 13th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Bridesmaids:
This spring, producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) and director Paul Feig (creator of Freaks and Geeks) invite you to experience Bridesmaids. Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Annie’s life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.
