The Roommate premiered in Los Angeles last night. Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester shared the red carpet for the premiere. You can see their photos and The Roommate trailer video below.
The Roommate is to launch in theaters on February 4, 2011 staring Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester as …. you guessed it …. roommates. One of them is more than a little unhinged and overly possessive and dependent on her more naive roommate. I would tell you which one is in which role, but honestly, I can’t tell them apart. Is it just me or do they look an awful lot alike? I’m just kidding (sort of), Minka Kelly is in the lovely long-sleeved cream sheer dress and Leighton Meester is in a floor length black PVC gown.
Anyway, the film seems to be a slightly updated and less explicit version of Single White Female which stared Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The biggest difference I see in the two movies is that The Roommate is about college roommates while Single White Female was about two women sharing an apartment.
What do you think? Will you be watching The Roommate? Meanwhile, watch the trailer video below and see the photos of Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester from last nights The Roommate premiere in Los Angeles.
