'What Men Want" gets raunchy in new trailer.
During the 2019 Valentine’s Day season, Paramount pictures What Men Want, a gender-flipped remake of the 2000 romantic comedy What Women Want, will be one of the marquee showings and to continue to get audiences excited about the Taraji P. Henson-led film, the studio has now released a Red band trailer for the film.
The film is centered around Henson who portrays a sports agency executive frustrated with the Boys’ Club mentality in her workplace. As evidenced by the trailer, she gains the ability to her men’s thoughts after taking a fall on the head. Soon enough, she’s inside the head of her assistant, her colleagues, naturally, her leading man (Aldis Hodge), and even Shaq, Mark Cuban and Tracy Morgan. Other prominent member so the cast include Erykah Badu and Pete Davidson.
The new film is written by Tina Gordon Chism (ATL) and Jas Water (This Is Us) while being directed by Adam Shankman. In theaters February 8th, the new remake may very be well-needed facelift to the Mel Gibson iteration that arrive nearly twenty years ago. We’ll have to see how well it stacks up in the end.
An initial box office success, What Women Want grossed $374 million worldwide against a $70 million budget and had the slightly above-average ratings attached to romantic comedy made for mass consumption.
