"10 Years" trailer pushes breakout ensemble

To say that "10 Years" is the final lynchpin in the year of Channing Tatum might turn out to be true, but the trailer pitches it more strongly as an intentional ensemble piece. A high school reunion flick, the film pushes Tatum alongside Justin Long, Kate Mara, Chris Pratt, Brian Geraghty, Anthony Mackie, Rosario Dawson, Aubrey Plaza, but perhaps most interesting of all being Oscar Isaac. The actor has been in the post for a major surge in his career to push him towards definite stardom, not unlike many of the other actors featured in this film.

Kate Mara has been making her way with small roles since coming closest to the public eye in "127 Hours". Chris Pratt has tempered his comedic work with dramatic stabs in "Moneyball" and the upcoming "Zero Dark Thirty". Brian Geraghty has been pretty much MIA since a strong breakthrough with "The Hurt Locker", also featuring Anthony Mackie. "10 Years" feels like a film meant to do one thing, that being to nudge these worthy actors ever so closer to the spotlight, and it seems to be doing it in a supremely "nice" way. I can see it playing with audiences much the same way "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" did. Take a look at the trailer after the jump!
