Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer and poster for director David E. Talbert’s (First Sunday) romantic comedy Baggage Claim. The film stars Paula Patton as an unmarried flight attendant who becomes determined to find a man before her younger sister’s wedding. In order to aid her on her quest, her friends at the airport arrange several of her ex-boyfriends to cross her path. Though the “I need a man to make me feel whole” premise is rather played out and at least a little offensive, Baggage Claim actually looks like it has a few genuine laughs in store for audiences. Also, Adam Brody plays the “gay best friend” character, so there’s that.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Derek Luke, Taye Diggs, Jill Scott, Boris Kodjoe, Trey Songz, Tia Mowry, LaLa Anthony, and Djimon Hounsou. Baggage Claim opens on September 27th.
