THAT AWKWARD MOMENT red band trailer – Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan & Miles Teller are bromancing

Zac Efron is really trying to break away from that Disney mold, leaving his HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL days behind… and I’m cool with that, as the guy seems to actually be a pretty good actor when given the right material. Add in Miles Teller, hot off the heels of THE SPECTACULAR NOW, and Michael B. Jordan from CHRONICLE and FRUITVALE STATION, and you’ve got the three leads of the new relationship comedy THAT AWKWARD MOMENT. Written and directed by Tom Gormican, the film features Efron, Teller and Jordan as three young guys having relationship issues with significant others, and trying to help each other get through it. I have a feeling the dating stuff is going to take a backseat to the bromance that’s pretty evident in the trailer, but we’ll see. I chuckled a few times, and I will say it’s been a while since we’ve seen a movie like this, so it could be worth a look. The film also stars Imogen Poots, Jessica Lucas, Lola Glaudini, Emily Meade and Addison Timlin. Take a look at the red band trailer below and see what you think, then let us know in the comments. This is kind of like a Chick Flick for guys… should we call it a “Dick Flick”? Think I better go trademark that NOW.

Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan star in the R-rated comedy, THAT AWKWARD MOMENT, about three best friends who find themselves where we’ve all been – at that confusing “moment” in every dating relationship when you have to decide “So…where is this going?”

Written and Directed by Tom Gormican, THAT AWKWARD MOMENT co-stars Imogen Poots and Jessica Lucas. Scott Aversano is producing via his Aversano Pictures banner along with Andrew O’Connor, and Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen via the Treehouse Pictures Banner. The film is executive produced by Manu Gargi, Zac Efron, Jason Barrett, Michael Simkin, John Friedberg, and Peter Schlessel and Lia Buman. The film is scheduled for release January 31, 2014.
