DreamWorks has released a brief first trailer for Delivery Man. The trailer quickly sets up the premise: Vince Vaughn plays a sperm donor who ended up being the biological father to 533 kids due to a mix up at the clinic. Those kids are now suing to find out his identity. The movie is based off the Ken Scott‘s 2011 Canadian film Starbuck, which I heard was pretty good. Here’s hoping that Scott, who is helming the remake, can repeat his success.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, and Britt Robertson. Delivery Man opens November 22nd.
We’ve got a release date debut and a couple of shuffles to share today:
- Her – Director Spike Jonze’s next feature, a sci-fi romance between a lonely writer and his new operating system, has been slated for a limited release on November 20th by Warner Bros. Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, and Scarlett Johansson star.
- The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – The YA adaptation starring Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower has been moved up two days to August 21st.
- Delivery Man – Disney’s comedy remake starring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders has been pushed back from October 4th to November 22nd, where it opens wide opposite The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
- The Fifth Estate – Director Bill Condon’s WikiLeaks/Julian Assange movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch has been moved up from November 15th to October 11th where it will open in limited release.
Disney has slated the Vince Vaughn comedy The Delivery Man (formerly titled Starbuck) for October 4, 2013. As we previously reported, the comedy, which is a remake of a 2011 film, centers on a middle-aged man (Vaughn) who finds out that he fathered 533 children via sperm donation. His life is turned upside down when a few hundred of the donor babies “express an irrepressible need to meet their father.” The film also stars Cobie Smulders, Britt Robinson, and Chris Pratt. Ken Schott, who wrote and directed the original film, will helm the remake. This is the second delay for The Delivery Man, which was originally set to open on September 28th of this year before getting kicked back to March 29, 2013.
The Delivery Man will square off against Robert Rodriguez‘ Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and the thriller Paranoia starring Chris Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, and Gary Oldman.
The First Time is a modern and realistic look at the angst and excitement of young love. Dave (Dylan O’Brien) is a high school senior who meets Aubrey (Britt Robertson), a junior, one night at a party and a casual conversation sparks a connection that keeps drawing them back to each other. From writer/director Jonathan Kasdan, the film also stars Victoria Justice, Craig Robertson, Joshua Malina and Christine Taylor. For more on the film, here’s the trailer.
At the film’s press day, actress Britt Robertson spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about what attracted her to the film, trusting in writer/director Jonathan Kasdan, how there were only minor changes made to the film, learning how to really be in the moment, and the scene she was most nervous to shoot. She also talked about her next role in The Delivery Man, a comedy starring Vince Vaughn, what she’s looking for in a role now, and whether she might consider doing television again. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
