BOOK CLUB, never too old for love


The geriatric scripts keep on giving this year. Here's a new trailer about a group of old, but attractive gals looking for some feisty love. The Book Club has just received a new trailer - powered by Paramount - which you can watch below.

“Every so often,” the voiceover intones, “there’s a reason to go to the movies. Here’s four.” The final trailer for the upcoming Bill Holderman movie sees Mary Steenburgen, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Candice Bergen's characters refuse to "stop living" just because society expects them to. The narrative follows four old friends who read EL James’ Fifty Shades of Grey and believe it's the wake-up call that they need to take advantage of all that life has to offer.

Keaton plays Diane, who is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage; Fonda is the free-spirited Vivian, who buys the group copies of the book; Bergen plays Sharon, who is still processing a decades-old divorce; and Steenburgen is Carol, whose 35-year marriage is in a rut. (via Deadline)

“Ladies, I’m not gonna let us become those people who stop living before they stop living,” says Fonda’s character, Vivian, before introducing her friends to Fifty Shades of Grey. After Steenburgen’s character, Carol, reads that the book is for mature audiences, Keaton's Diane remarks, “Certainly sounds like us.”

The trailer shows the women looking shocked while reading the novel before Fonda’s character runs into a former flame played by Don Johnson. “What has it been, 40 years?” Johnson asks. “That’s impossible. That would mean I was only 6,” responds Fonda.

It is also revealed in the trailer that Keaton’s character has not been on a date since the Nixon era, which explains her hesitance to begin a relationship with Mitchell (played by Andy Garcia).

“I don’t care what society says about women our age,” says Fonda as clips are shown of Bergen’s character, Sharon, on a date and the women spending time together. “The choice should be ours.”

Book Club also stars Craig T. Nelson, Alicia Silverstone, Wallace Shawn, and Ed Begley Jr., and it hits theaters on May 18. Watch the full trailer above.
