Exclusive: New Man Up Poster
Simon Pegg and Lake Bell hit the photobooth
Simon Pegg’s new romantic-comedy, Man Up, eschews all the modern dating paraphernalia – Tinder, Happn, etc – and takes the more old-fashioned route to romance: a blind date and a case of mistaken identity. The movie, which pairs him up with the equally winning Lake Bell, has a new poster to share with the world. Click on the image to blow it up at least three times bigger. It's not a poster for ants. Written by Tess Morris and directed by The Inbetweeners Movie's Ben Palmer, Man Up follows Bell’s Nancy, sick of the frustrations of dating and the endless pointless set ups provided by her friends. But in a weird circumstance, she meets divorcee Jack (Pegg), who mistakes her for his blind date. Deciding to take a chance, Nancy goes along with it, and what follows is a chaotic night of drinking, dancing, bowling and what both of them see is a real connection. But then the truth comes out, and it threatens to ruin everything. Can they overcome that one tiny obstacle that stands in the way of happiness? We’re not telling.
With the likes of Rory Kinnear, Olivia Williams, Sharon Horgan, Ken Stott, Ophelia Lovibond and Stephen Campbell Moore also on board for this one, Man Up will be out in UK cinemas on May 29.
