Black Swan Pals Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman in Competing Friends with Benefits Movies

5 Comments

So, how funny is this? Or ironic? Or coincidence? Well, one of those. Turns out “Black Swan” BFFs Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman both have movies about 20-something girls who start having sex with their male best friends coming out in 2011 post-”Black Swan”. And they’re both comedies. Kunis is bumping uglies with Justin Timberlake in “Friends with Benefits” (way to get creative with the title, guys), while Portman is jumping Ashton Kutcher’s bones in “No Strings Attached” (slightly more creative, though not by much). Obviously neither film looks all that good. “Benefits”, in particular, looks utterly painful. Wince-inducing, crying in a corner painful. They should have just paired Kunis up with Kutcher, then they could sell the film as a “That 70′s Show” reunion.

Anyways, since this is pretty much the first and last time we’re going to be covering both of these movies, here are trailers for both “Friends with Benefits” and “No Strings Attached”, including Red Band Trailers for both. Try watching these after you’ve seen “Black Swan”. The effect is quite spectacular.

Portman and “No Strings Attached” comes out first on January 21, 2011, followed by Kunis’ “Friends with Benefits” on July 22, 2011.

    Watched Black Swan last night and your right the effect is quite spectacular. If I had to pick I would go with No Strings Attached, Kunis swearing and having sex doesn’t really do it for me because I kind of expect it but even though i’ve seen Closer and Black Swan I still look at Portman and go she looks way too innocent and that’s what makes it so good to watch.

    I guess the question is which of these two have the bigger hurdle to overcome re: the d-baggery of its male leads.

    Best friends as sex friends? Friends (with benefits) is the flick to see. Talented NYC based cast and a cameo by “Social Network”‘s Rooney Mara. Played the film festival circuit last year winning many awards along the way. Confused as to how such a similar movie is now coming out with big stars attached? So are we. Please check out FWBMOVIE.COM for links to Babelgum and Fancast where you can watch the film for free and decide for yourself. Thanks for supporting indie film! http://bit.ly/ek4Tnx
