Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
Jetset Studios, one of the entertainment industry’s leading digital agencies, recently launched an original online feature for Universal’s new Apatow-produced comedy Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig. The announcement was jointly made today by Jetset Studios co-founders Russell Scott and Patrick Young.
To push out the film’s outrageous girls-night-out comedy, Jetset Studios created “Being Bridesmaids” (http://www.bridesmaidsmovie.com/trailerfeature). This feature invites users to re-cast the characters of the film -- the Blushing Bride, the Maid of Dishonor, the Innocent One, a Real Mother, Little Miss Perfect and the Wild Card -- with their Facebook friends. The result is a raunch-filled romp through a custom Bridesmaids trailer that is immediately shareable.
Jetset CEO Russell Scott states, “Bridesmaids was a dream project for us. The opportunity to work with The Apatow gang is always an amazing experience. With support from our friends at Universal, we’re thrilled to have created a meme-worthy feature for this truly unique film.”
Jetset president and exec producer Patrick Young notes, “We really had fun with it, and that’s what makes this experience so authentic. By allowing the audience such outrageous interaction with these soon-to-be iconic characters, we are bringing them into the story and creating an emotional connection even before the film opens.”
Producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) and director Paul Feig (creator of Freaks and Geeks) cordially invite you to experience Bridesmaids. Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony.
Annie's life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian's maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she'll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you'll go for someone you love.
