Screen Gems has revealed the first trailer for thriller The Perfect Guy, starring Michael Ealy (Think Like a Man Too), Sanaa Lathan (The Best Man Holiday) and Morris Chestnut (The Best Man Holiday, Think Like a Man). You can watch the trailer below.
In the film, Leah Vaughn (Lathan) appears to have the ideal life. She enjoys a challenging, fast-paced career as a lobbyist; Dave (Morris Chestnut), her longterm boyfriend loves her. And yet, at 36, she’s ready to move to the next phase. Marriage and a family seem a logical and welcome step. Dave is not so sure. A bit commitment phobic, his misgivings lead to a painful break up. Enter Carter Duncan (Ealy), a handsome, charming stranger whose path keeps crossing with Leah’s. Caring and solicitous of Leah and her family and friends, their relationship rapidly progresses. It seems Leah has met the perfect guy. But if it seems too good to be true… Soon Carter’s protective nature morphs into something more sinister. It’s clear Leah has to end this new relationship and when she does, her onetime lover becomes her ultimate enemy. It will take every bit of her cunning and resolve to escape and outwit him.
Written by Tyger Williams (Menace II Society) and directed David M. Rosenthal (A Single Shot, Janie Jones), The Perfect Guy opens in theaters on September 11.
