Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell can barely disguise their disgust for one another that dates back to college but pretend to be the perfect couple at a destination wedding, in the trailer for the edgy rom-com Anyone But You unveiled on Thursday.
The Euphoria star plays Bea, and Top Gun: Maverick’s Powell is Ben in the enemies-to-lovers comedy about college rivals reuniting and thrust together at a glitzy wedding in Australia. “Let’s just tell everyone we’re together… Could be kind of fun,” Bea tells a puzzled Ben at one point in the trailer as they then replace hate stares with fake flirty glances as their personal chemistry gets pretty complicated around wedding guests.
“There’s no way we could convince anyone we actually like each other,” Ben tells Bea, suspicious of the challenge she sets for her nemeses at the gathering. “But through pretending, they actually fall in love,” Sony’s official synopsis for Anyone But You adds.
Will Gluck directed the romantic comedy based on a story by Ilana Wolpert and a screenplay they co-wrote together. The ensemble cast includes Alexandra Shipp, GaTa, Hadley Robinson, Michelle Hurd, Dermot Mulroney, Darren Barnet and Rachel Griffiths.
The producer credits on Anyone But You are shared by Gluck Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum. Alyssa Altman, Jacqueline Monetta, Catherine Bishop, Natalie Sellers, Charlie Corwin, Sidney Kimmel, Mark O’Connor, Sweeney and Jonathan Davino are executive producers.
Sony Pictures Entertainment will release Anyone But You to theaters on Dec. 22.
