Magnolia has released the first trailer for director Joe Swanberg’s comedy Drinking Buddies.  The film stars Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson (New Girl) as two friends working together at a craft brewery who, while navigating the ups and downs of their separate romantic relationships, find themselves drawn to each other.  The pic looks like a damn good time, and the chemistry between Wilde and Johnson is great.  Johnson has been doing fantastic stand-out work on the sitcom New Girl for the past two years, but I’m happy to see him get the chance to shine in a leading role like this.  Throw the immensely talented Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston into the mix as Johnson and Wilde’s significant others, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a promising beer dramedy.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Drinking Buddies will be available on iTunes on July 25th and opens in theaters on August 23rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Drinking Buddies:

Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson) work together at a craft brewery. They have one of those friendships that feels like it could be something more. But Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). Jill wants to know if Luke is ready to talk about marriage. The answer to that question becomes crystal clear when Luke and Kate unexpectedly find themselves alone for a weekend. DRINKING BUDDIES is written and directed by Joe Swanberg and stars Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick, and Ron Livingston.
