Flipped Trailer Arrives
Rob Reiner's new coming-of-age tale

16 June 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Moviefone

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve seen Rob Reiner step behind the camera (his last was The Bucket List in 2007). And it’s been much longer than that since he tackled one of the genres that made him famous: the nostalgic coming-of-age drama. But given the trailer for his latest film, Flipped, it looks like he’s firmly back in the comfort zone, even if he had to fiddle with the source material to get there.

Flipped, you see, is adapted from Wendelin Van Draanen’s novel of heartache, youthful longing and a girl-meets-boy tale that stretches across several years of high school.

But in Reiner’s version – for which he’s even written the screenplay, making this his first self-scripted film since Spinal Tap – he’s switched the contemporary setting to the 1950s/60s and split the focus between the novel’s Juli (Madeline Carroll) and the object of her affection, Bryce (Callan McAuliffe).

Though they seem to be absolute opposites (Bryce is largely straitlaced where Juli is more freewheeling), a connection occurs. Which somehow blossoms when puberty hits the pair.

With the likes of Anthony Edwards, John Mahoney, Penelope Ann Miller, Rebecca De Mornay and Aidan Quinn as reliable support, we’re hoping this one returns Reiner to proper form.

The trailer’s below, and while the film doesn’t have a set release date over here yet, it should reach these shores before the end of the year.

PS: If your name is Wendelin Van Draanaen, never, ever become a super villain. Everyone will know it’s you just from that awesome moniker.

I think it's a great trailer. Needs to tell a little more though, I dislike it when you know the whole story by watching the trailer...unless that was their intent. There's a "Flipped" contest up now! http://bit.ly/agYdaX More

Bad trailer, but the film looks like it's going to be good. Bold move taking a contemporary (and therefore more marketable) story and changing the time period. Also, if that unvillain person is who he/she says he/she is, that's pretty damn cool! More

The Un-Villain Reacts
Normally I don't comment on postings regarding my work, but your "PS: If your name is Wendelin Van Draanaen, never, ever become a super villain. Everyone will know it’s you just from that awesome moniker" made me laugh so hard that I went through all your registration hoops to tell you two things: First thanks for making me laugh! Yes, this is Wendelin (Van Draanen, not Van Draanaen, but I hope that doesn't detract from your statement about not becoming a villain). And second, th More
