‘Life Partners’ Trailer with Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs

After a poster was released earlier this week, Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first trailer for the romantic comedy Life Partners starring Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs, which offers a stirring look at how relationships can get in the way of long-standing friendships.

Adam Brody stars as nerdy Tim, who falls in love with Paige, resulting in her first serious relationship. At 29, she hasn't ever been involved in a long-term commitment, except with her BFF Sasha. They used to only have each other, but this new guy is starting to change that in unexpected ways.

The former teen icon is back to wreck havoc on the lives of two longtime girlfriends in Life Partners, which has just debuted a new poster.

Adam Brody isn't anywhere to be see on this first one-sheet, which is given over to stars Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs, also both veterans of popular TV series. They'll soon discover how just this one guy can ruin their perfect union.

The SUNDAY FUNNIES: ‘I Love You Man’ 'Sequel' and ‘Harry Potter’'s Sorting Hat Spoof

Not only is NBC's Community one of the funniest shows on TV, but all of the main cast members and creator Dan Harmon are active on Twitter, which makes the show even cooler, in my opinion.

Donald Glover retweeted Gillian Jacobs' original tweet, even stating that, "I might join." I love that the ad's creator is rather insistent that someone must actually have Starburns to be his group's Starburns... which leads me to wonder how many people out there actually did get starburns after Community premiered.
