Aubrey Plaza-starrer The To-Do List (once titled The Hand Job) receives a risque red band trailer

To-Do List title

I think the general consensus is that red band trailers are better trailers, if for not other reason that they often better show you what a movie is actually about.  Such is the case with THE TO-DO LIST, a funny piece of Valentine's Day counter-programming from CBS Films given its debut today via a pretty damn funny first trailer.  Interwoven with Plaza's pitch-perfect narration, the movie looks to definitely be a good time for all involved (if you know what I mean).

Starring Aubrey Plaza (SAFETY NOT GUARENTEED, SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD), THE TO-DO LIST (which originally went under the name THE HAND JOB) "follows the story of Brandy Klark (Plaza), a Type-A, overachiever who comes up with a 'to-do list' featuring all the risqué extra-curricular activities she missed out on in high school and wants to complete before college." And the movie won't be carried on Plaza's excellent comedic skills alone, as she will be joined by the likes of Donald Glover, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Rachel Bilson, Alia Shawkat, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Oh, and Clark Gregg.

I shall say no more.

Extra Tidbit: Writer/director Maggie Carey has worked with "Funny or Die" for a while now and is married to Bill Hader. So I'd say that she knows funny rather well by now.

Just glad that female comedians are branching out to make their own funny movies. Great stuff.

I really like this format of teaser trailer, with the star not only introducing the footage but kind of presenting it the whole way through. It's cheeky, mischievous, irreverent and feels more sincere than the usual, slickly-packaged stuff. This also looks to be quite funny and yay, Agent Coulson's in it too!
