I remember hearing about Two Night Stand gearing up to shoot a few years ago and then it completely fell off the radar. Today, it is once again a blip on the screen thanks to this new trailer. The film is directed by Max Nichols (son of Graduate director Mike Nichols) from a Blacklist script by Mark Hammer and stars Miles Teller (fresh off shooting The Fantastic Four, which I believe went into production after this film) and Analeigh Tipton.
I’m a fan of Tipton’s and Teller seems like he’s got a few chops. But while Two Night Stand actually looks pretty good for what it is, what it is… is not for me. It’s certainly not offensive, in fact I find the idea of two young people engaging in a frank dialogue about how to be more considerate lovers to be a refreshing concept in today’s mainstream landscape. Maybe it’s just that I’m a few years older than these characters and don’t need to delve back into that mindset. Still, it’s nice that movies about, you know, people aren’t just limited to serious art house fare. Hit the jump for the Two Night Stand trailer. The film hits theaters on September 26th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Two Night Stand:
Two Night Stand is directed by Max Nichols, son of directing legend Mike Nichols making his feature directorial debut, and written by Mark Hammer (“Skins”). A no-strings-attached, online hook-up turns into a morning-after disaster for twenty-something New Yorkers Megan (Analeigh Tipton of Crazy Stupid Love) and Alec (Miles Teller of The Spectacular Now and Whiplash). When a paralyzing blizzard hits the city trapping them in Alec’s cramped Brooklyn apartment, they are forced to get to know each other far beyond the confines of a typical one-night stand.
