That Awkward Moment marks the first post-Fruitvale Station project from actor Michael B. Jordan.

Formerly titled Are We Officially Dating?, the R-rated comedy stars Miles Teller, Zac Efron and the aforementioned Michael B. Jordan as three best buds who make a pact to stay single after Jordan’s character experiences a devastating breakup.

Directed and written by Tom Gormican (Movie 43), the red-band trailer is loaded with racy moments, including a shot of former Disney star Zac Efron’s bare buttocks (while posing in a plank position atop a toilet), a fake, rubber penis, and a couple of hearty sex scenes.

Watch the clip for yourself below:

This is Gormican’s first time writing and directing, so the jury is out on whether this will actually be funny. But, there are a few good laughs in this clip mixed in with the shocking moments. Many people will be intrigued due to the principal cast (Efron and Jordan), and critics will be intrigued to see how these up-and-coming stars of tomorrow interact with each other on-screen.

The Focus Features release also stars Imogen Poots (Fright Night), Jessica Lucas (Evil Dead) and Addison Timlin (Californication as the three women who make the film’s leading men get all sweaty while preparing to pop that awkward question.

That Awkward Moment will hit theaters January 31, 2014.
