Check out the first trailer for the romantic comedy Going the Distance
, starring real-life couple Justin Long
and Drew Barrymore
Erin and Garrett are good together–even when they’re apart. When aspiring journalist Erin (Barrymore) moves to San Francisco to finish her last year of school, boyfriend Garrett (Long), an assistant music scout, stays in Manhattan to pursue his ambitions and wait on that promotion he’s been promised. With a webcam connection and frequent flier miles, the two gamely navigate the pitfalls and miscommunications of their bi-coastal romance, dodging bad advice from friends and some predatory singles who won’t take “taken” for an answer. But when it seems their wait is almost over, Erin scores her dream job in California just as Garrett’s career heats up in New York. The big breaks they’ve been hoping for could break them up for good…unless their love can truly go the distance.
