20th Century Fox has unleashed a new trailer for the upcoming adventure comedy Snatched. Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50) and scripted by The Heat and Ghostbusters scribe Katie Dippold, the film stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as a daughter/mother duo who take an exotic vacation to get over a breakup, only to find themselves kidnapped and in serious peril. The trialer shows that altough it may be acomedy it as heart.
The combination of comedy with very dramatic subject matter is something Levine is famaliar with having done 50/50, and most recently delved into the “party movie” genre to terrific results with the underseen The Night Before. So its interesting to see that lense on this film.
Watch the new Snatched trailer below. The film also stars Joan Cusack, Ike Barinholtz, Wanda Sykes, and Christopher Meloni. Snatched opens in theaters on May 12th. Mother’s Day Weekend will definteky help the box office of this film.
After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn) to travel with her to paradise. Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter – in unpredictable, hilarious fashion – is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into.
