"How I Met Your Mother" takes a different approach in promoting the upcoming episode by releasing the trailer of a faux movie which will be a major part of the episode's story. Future Ted recalls the day he took a date (guest star Judy Greer) to see a new hit movie called "The Wedding Bride". The trailer of the said movie is the one released this week as a promo.
Ted is shocked to learn the story is loosely based on his life, and that it was written by Tony, the man Stella left him for at the altar. In the fake movie, Malin Akerman stars as Stella, Jason Lewis as Tony and Chris Kattan as Ted. Future Ted said the so-called movie would hit theaters in May this year.
The "How I Met Your Mother" episode itself, which is titled "The Wedding Bride", will air on Monday, May 17.
