The Boy Next Door is not your ordinary affair tale.
Its trailer, released today, shows Claire (Jennifer Lopez) coping with her husband’s history of infidelity. When a new neighbor moves in, a teenage boy named Noah (Ryan Guzman), she is smitten with the attention he gives her. He calls her beautiful and then quickly apologizes. “It’s okay,” she says. “It’s the nicest thing anyone has said to me in a long time.”
You can probably guess what happens next: The pair share a passionate night, set to a thunderstorm, of course. Realizing she made a mistake, Claire calls it off, but Noah doesn’t take it well and refuses to let go. Soon, all hell breaks lose. Did I mention she’s a teacher at the local high school and he ‘s her student? Yeah, it gets bad.
Directed by Rob Cohen with a script written by Barbara Curry, the film also stars Kristin Chenoweth, John Corbett, and Ian Nelson.
The Boy Next Door hits theaters January 23, 2015. For now, catch the trailer here:
