The Five-Year Engagement Trailer Online
Jason Segel's the marrying kind...

If you A) weren’t thrilled by the Three Stooges trailer's pratfall overload and B) would like to see Emily Blunt and Jason Segel being romantically funny together in something that isn’t Gulliver’s Travels, then we think we have the answer. Cast your eyes slightly down the page to where you’ll find the trailer for The Five-Year Engagement. Enjoy.

Co-written by Segel and his Forgetting Sarah Marshall/Muppets cohort Nick Stoller (back behind the camera for this one), Engagement is the story of Tom Solomon (Segel) and Violet Barnes (Blunt), who decide to finally take the plunge and get married.

But because that would be a fairly boring, distinctly average wedding video, that’s naturally not the end of the matter. Violet gets a job offer in Michigan and the couple must cope with putting off the wedding by a couple of years. And then a couple more. And… Well, you can see the title.

Naturally, the frustrations mount and the cracks show, but from the looks of this, it’s a nicely toned piece on relationships with plenty of Stoller and Segel’s trademark wit and love of the odd physical gag. Oh, and the usual Judd Apatow flair (he's producing).

Plus it boasts sterling support from Alison Brie, Rhys Ifans, Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell and Chris Pratt, who has quickly become something of a comedy MVP thanks to his work on Parks & Recreation.

You fortunately won’t have to wait five years for this one: the film arrives on April 27.
