Bounty Hunter Trailer Arrives
Gerard Butler tracks down his ex

Ah, the high concept rom com: throwing attractive people together in wacky situations since the dawn of cinema itself (well, since the 30s at least).And now we have a trailer for the latest incarnation - The Bounty Hunter, starring Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston.

How does it look? Much like Fool's Gold, or Hitch, two of director Andy Tenant's previous movies, and again finds two sexy actors bickering, scrapping and generally trying to prove they have chemistry together.

On their own, Butler and Aniston have done some good work, but on the evidence of this trailer, we're not yet sure they work as a pair. Butler's contending with a slightly awkward American accent and Aniston appears to be falling back on her usual blend of nervy/cute tics.

The basic premise of the promo - which snuck out over the weekend - finds Butler's dogged bounty hunter assigned to track down his ex-wife (Aniston) when the journalist skips bail. But there's more: she's at work on a story about a covered-up murder, so naturally the squabbling former couple must go on the run. We give it an hour and five minutes of running time before they fall back in love...

Check out the trailer and see if it makes you want to watch the movie.

Well Tonight Matthew...
I am going to be a Poor Mans remake of 'Midnight Run' and hope no one sees me Miming! I Really liked Hitch as a romantic comedy that was a good bit of fun... Not feeling it on this but will wait for the Meta Critic Average and see... More

When will Hollywood learn - Gerard Butler cannot do an American (or indeed any) accent to save his life. They sooner they accept this and just leave him Scottish - the better off we'll all be. :) More

Has Aniston made any decent films?
The Good Girl was ok but not great- she got good reviews because she managed to keep a straight face through it. Well done. Why didn't they just make Butler Scottish? Bad accents are one of the things that most distract from the story of a film. More
