Daniel Radcliffe discovers that love and friendship with the opposite sex can be a complicated matter in his new romantic comedy "What If," and we have a first look at the new trailer.

They say when you're not looking, love shows up at your doorstep. Radcliffe plays Wallace, a med school dropout who's been burned repeatedly by bad relationships. Taking a break from the dating scene, he meets the perfect girl in Chantry (Zoe Kazan). Of course, after he gets his hopes up, she casually drops the "boyfriend" bomb and asks to be friends. But there's no denying that the two have chemistry, and they find themselves facing the "When Harry Met Sally" conundrum: Can men and women just be friends?
