First ‘Snatched’ Trailers Find Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn Stranded Abroad
20th Century Fox has unveiled the first trailers for the upcoming comedy Snatched. Previously referred to as “Untitled Mother/Daughter Comedy”, the film stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as a mother/daughter duo whose vacation takes a turn that leads them on an unexpected adventure. The Heat and Ghostbusters scribe Katie Dippold penned the original script, while Warm Bodies and 50/50 helmer Jonathan Levine directs.
This is Hawn’s first onscreen role since 2002’s The Banger Sisters, and it’s great to see her back on the big screen. She and Schumer seem to make a swell comedic pairing, and indeed this looks to be a solid film to see for mothers and daughters with that signature Amy Schumer twist (i.e. dirty jokes galore). The film also provides an exciting opportunity for Levine to work on a vast, colorful canvas after mostly helming smaller scale pictures. Even a movie like Warm Bodies maintained an emotional, character-driven center, so I’m curious to see that signature touch applied here—especially after Levine’s name popped up on the shortlist of directors Marvel was considering for Doctor Strange.
Watch the red-band Snatched trailer below, followed by the green-band version. The film also stars Christopher Meloni, Ike Barinholtz, Óscar Jaenada, Randall Park, and Wanda Sykes. Snatched opens in theaters on Mother’s Day weekend, May 12, 2017.
