We saw the first trailer for The Loft more than two years ago, and now the film will finally see the light of day. Open Road Films has acquired The Loft from Universal and just released a new trailer and poster. The film stars Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, and Matthias Shoenaerts as five married friends who share a secret penthouse where they can cheat on their wives and indulge in whatever fantasies they chose without leaving a paper trail. Their party train quickly derails when they find the body of a dead woman in the loft and fall to paranoia as everyone begins to suspect one another.
The movie looks like it could be trashy fun, but none of the characters come across as particularly likeable, just a bunch of entitled dudes cheating on their wives. It’s hard not to like Urban and Marsden though, so maybe the casting will make up for the off-putting nature of the characters. The film also stars Isabel Lucas, Rhona Mitra, and Rachael Taylor and opens in theaters January 23, 2015. Check out the first The Loft trailer after the jump.
