Chris Evans Stars in Upcoming Romantic Comedy ‘Playing It Cool’ [WATCH VIDEO]

Now that he’s not (yet) engaging on some heroic cinematics, “Captain America” actor Chris Evans gives us a different side of his acting skills in the new trailer of his upcoming romantic comedy film, “Playing It Cool.”

Every man has his own secret story as to why he wouldn’t fall in love again, but this time, Chris Evans is in his most bitter-and-naive-towards-love demeanor in the recently released trailer of his upcoming romantic comedy “Playing It Cool.” For this new movie, we see him shed off the heroic and composed countenance of Steve Rogers and assume a (love-estranged) writer who only wishes to pen action films, but instead ends up having to write a screenplay for a romantic comedy. Left with no choice, he obliges and aims to make a story about the rough reality of love and how it’s not fun, not humorous and definitely not bliss inducing. He was all set in furthering his depiction of how antagonistic love is in one’s life, but it all changed when he met the girl (Michelle Monaghan) who seems to bear his utmost womanly ideals. Here’s the catch, though, she’s not single. To top it all, she is engaged to be married (to Ioan Gruffudd).


Bringing in the concept that a guy and a girl can stay just friends, “Playing It Cool” is a movie that banks on the reality that emotions are bound to develop when two sexually available individuals spend lots of time together. The movie carries the element that contributes greatly in the change of one’s perception. According to Empire Online, such movie is the idea of the cynical-romantic whose overly saturated perception of love encounters one more moment to redefine itself completely. This is the most commonly used aspect of romantic comedies as well as the universal idea of men and women, who each bear the potential attraction of lust, experience the trouble of maintaining a no-strings-attached-purely-camaraderie type of relationship.

The movie possibly bears a saturated view point of love like any other romantic comedy, but perhaps Chris Evans will be enough to make you want to watch it. The movie also features the acting of Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Patrick Warburton, Martin Starr, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi and Philip Baker Hall. Penned by Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair and directed by first time helmsman Justin Reardon, “Playing It Cool” is one of those classic boy-meets-girl kinds of movie. There are still no release dates for the film just yet.

That concludes our scoop on Chris Evan’s new romantic comedy, “Playing It Cool.” Keep your tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates in the entertainment scene.
