Trailer: Easy A

The viral teasers for Emma Stone teen comedy Easy A left me not totally convinced.  The synopsis was intriguing, but the clips they chose as an initial selling point felt off-topic.  The first full trailer for the film, however, shows real promise.  Blending literary references (the A is an allusion to Hawthorne's Hester Prynne) with the huge opportunity for interesting social-sexual commentary, Easy A follows a high school nobody who manipulates the rumor mill to ascend the ranks of the popularity hierarchy.  How? Watch the trailer.  It feels very Mean Girls to me, and boasts a respectable line-up of talent cast as authority figures (Thomas Haden Church, Stanley Tucci, and Patricia Clarkson all in a teen movie?).  Yeah, I'm going to see it when it arrives in theaters this September.  The odds look good.
