We’re happy to host an exclusive clip from debut director Leslye Headland’s Bachelorette as part of the virtual tour in anticipation of the film’s release. While the footage we’ve seen so far highlights the film’s raunchy humor, this clip touches on a somewhat dramatic moment between Kirsten Dunst and James Marsden.
Bachelorette, also starring Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, Rebel Wilson, Adam Scott and Kyle Bornheimer hits theaters September 7th. Hit the jump to check out the exclusive video along with the red-band and green-band trailers.

Two of your favorite actors signed on to star in network sitcom pilots tonight. We’ll start with Zachary Levi. Now that Chuck is off the air, Levi is free to play the field. THR reports the former NBC star is jumping over to Fox for the single-camera comedy pilot Let It Go. Levi will play a husband who tries to “navigate, negotiate, and sometimes manipulate society’s unspoken rules.” Nothing special about the premise, so we’ll have to see how Fox fills out the cast. The other main roles are the wife, her sister, and Levi’s best friend. DJ Nash (‘Til Death) wrote the script and will executive produce along with Peter Tolan (Rescue Me) and Michael Wimer (2012).

Kyle Bornheimer has emerged as a reliably charming comedic performer over the past couple years. After a slew of TV guest spots, my first long-term introduction was in Worst Week, a remake of a British series about the farce-filled days leading up to a couple’s wedding. The character was a nice showcase for Bornheimer’s skills, and so he’s returning to that well for two new feature projects, albeit in less prominent roles. The first is Bachelorette, and indie comedy led by Kirsten Dunst. The second is The Big Wedding, an ensemble comedy featuring the likes of Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes, and Topher Grace.
