“I am sad and afraid”
The new trailer “Friends” is disappointing fans
In exactly one week’s time the time will come: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc will then be “friends” again. The first trailer of the long-awaited meeting can already be seen. But some of them arouse the discontent of the masses.
HBO Max released a trailer for the special “Friends” starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc – and fans of the former American series were not entirely satisfied with it. Two characters are particularly important in critical voices: American actor Perry and British presenter James Corden, who can be seen having a conversation with the stars in the setting of the old series.
Matthew Perry’s appearance in the joke shocked fans. Because he seemed unemotional. That already fell I “people” – an interview Ali, which was provided by the six actors in advance and in which the actor allegedly responded partially in an ambiguous manner. Fans look confused. “I can’t believe the way Matthew Perry looks … Seriously, it’s heartbreaking,” one of them tweeted after watching the video. Another fan wrote: “It hurts to see Matthew Perry like this, he seems absent, staring into space and talking slowly.”
A third viewer added: “I hate to say that, but I’m sad and terrified as hell for Matthew Perry.” As the happy “Chandler”, Matthew Perry starred in the popular series for ten years. It was later announced that he suffered major addiction problems while filming.
“just let it be”
There were also a lot of negative comments on social media of tempering James Cordens’ special “Friends” meeting on May 27th. All of these people could have been in the “Friends” reunion, but Warner Brothers chose Justin Bieber and James Corden, a Twitter user complained next to a picture of well-known guest stars from the series such as Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis and Reese Witherspoon. James Corden adds to the list of things. Which he destroyed as soon as he was there“Friends reunited,” another said.
“A lot of famous people and famous people and James Corden,” comments another fan of the series. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve wanted to reunite with ‘friends’ since 2004, but if someone had told me James Corden would be there, I would tell them to leave him,’ else The many tweets in this direction. On the other hand, other Twitter users are concerned that many stars are participating in the reunion and that this might distract from the actual plot and the six main actors.
James Corden’s presence in Reunion is surprising in other ways as well. Because “Late Late Show” has been featured on CBS, while Friends has been an important format in programming for rival NBC broadcasters for years.
