‘Blockers’ Red Band Trailer: John Cena and Leslie Mann Decode Teen Sex Emojis
John Cena’s comedic talents are truly a gift to us all. This time he’s putting those skills to use alongside fellow funny people Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz in Blockers, in which they play a trio of concerned parents on a mission to stop their teen daughters from completing their prom night sex pact. It probably doesn’t need explaining, but it’s pretty obvious just what these three are attempting to block in the first red band trailer for the upcoming comedy.
But just in case: It’s C—k. These parents are c—k blocking their teen daughters — or at least trying to, after they hilariously decode some sexy emojis. Everyone knows what the eggplant emoji is for, but I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels like that drooling face is seriously suggestive. Cena, Mann and Barinholtz are delightful in the totally NSFW (as far as language is concerned) trailer, but the most hilarious moment comes at the end, when Cena learns all about the unfortunate “butt chugging” trend.
Hopefully Blockers saved some of those laughs for the actual film, which marks the directorial debut of Pitch Perfect screenwriter and former Girlboss showrunner Kay Cannon.
When three parents stumble upon their daughters’ pact to lose their virginity at prom, they launch a covert one-night operation to stop the teens from sealing the deal. Leslie Mann (The Other Woman, This Is 40), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) and John Cena (Trainwreck, Sisters) star in Blockers, the directorial debut of Kay Cannon (writer of the Pitch Perfect series).
Blockers hits theaters on April 6, 2018.
