The teaser trailer for “The Duff” has arrived.

No, it's not the long-awaited Hilary Duff biopic or a documentary about Springfield's favorite beer. Instead, “The Duff” is based on Kody Keplinger's novel, and stars Mae Whitman (her?) as a high schooler named Bianca who is devastated to discover she's secretly known as “The DUFF” (“Designated Ugly Fat Friend”) in her social circle. With the help of hunky jock Robbie Amell (“The Tomorrow People”), Bianca reinvents herself while attempting to topple her school's clique system and vicious mean girls.
