Second Trailer for 'Snatched' Starring Amy Schumer & Goldie Hawn

7 February 2017 10:39 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Why did I ever let you talk me into this?" Fox has unveiled a second official trailer for the summer comedy Snatched, starring Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer as mother and daughter who get kidnapped when they take a trip to Ecuador. This new trailer features even more wacky footage than the first red band trailer, but I'm still not that excited about this at all. As fun as it looks in some spots, it just seems so Hollywood absurd, not my favorite kind of comedy to watch. The full cast includes Joan Cusack, Ike Barinholtz, Wanda Sykes, Christopher Meloni, Randall Park, Wanda Sykes, Óscar Jaenada, as well as Colin Quinn. I expect this will make tons of money in the summer, it's definitely going to pull in some big crowds. Here's the second official trailer for Jonathan Levine's Snatched, direct from Fox's YouTube: When her boyfriend dumps Emily »

Amy Schumer & Goldie Hawn do some serious bonding in the new trailer for Snatched

7 February 2017 9:16 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It’s always nice to see a Mother and Daughter combo doing some serious bonding but Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn take it to the next level in the new trailer for Snatched. In this new film the pair give their kidnappers a run for their money while on an exotic holiday.

Related: Snatched Trailers

Snatched marks Hawn’s first role since 2002’s The Banger Sisters and this new film features an odd couple who have only their comedic roles in common. So whose bright idea was it to team up the once well known sex symbol actress Goldie Hawn and the outspoken, controversial comedian Amy Schumer as a mother and daughter bad-ass duo? That would be Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters director Paul Feig – who acts as producer on Snatched – as well as Schumer herself who co-wrote the outrageous comedy alongside her sister Kim Caramele and Ghostbusters and Spy writer, »

Snatched Trailer: Only A Mother-Daughter Bond Can Save Amy Schumer And Goldie Hawn

7 February 2017 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The moment 20th Century Fox announced plans to bring together Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn for a mother-comedy comedy, we were enthralled.

Following the success of her hit sketch show Inside Amy Schumer, the actress really turned heads and raised eyebrows in 2015 through Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck, a film she wrote and starred in as the irreverent Amy Townsend. The award nominations came pouring in, and Schumer cemented her status as one of Hollywood’s bankable leading ladies in a flash.

For Goldie Hawn, the screen legend is poised to make her first film appearance in more than 15 years for SnatchedJonathan Levine’s family comedy that ships Schumer and Hawn off to some far-flung exotic location. A relaxing holiday and some much-needed bonding time are on the cards, though the Middletons’ dream vacation soon morphs into a holiday from hell after they’re kidnapped by a band of crooks. »

Watch Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn Battle Kidnappers in 'Snatched' Trailer

7 February 2017 7:47 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A balmy mother-daughter trip to Ecuador is derailed by a kidnapping in the latest trailer for Snatched, a comedy featuring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn. The movie marks Hawn's return to the big screen after a 15-year absence.

The trailer initially suggests a peaceful movie full of wisecracks and emotional breakthroughs, as Schumer and Hawn work out their differences poolside over strong, cold drinks. Hawn smothers Schumer in sunscreen, and the two argue about the dangers of boozing with handsome strangers.

Coming Distractions: New Snatched trailer has lots of bonding and robbing

7 February 2017 7:17 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The new trailer for Snatched, the Amy Schumer-Goldie Hawn comedy of errors in judgment, could never been confused for a tourism ad for South America, which is treated as a country and not a continent. After Schumer gets dumped, she drags her mom to some part of the southern hemisphere, where the only people they interact with are other white people, including a hot Australian dude and Joan Cusack. Come to think of it, that sounds like a typical vacation.

From the looks of it, the kidnapping will be dispensed with right away, leaving Schumer’s character to prove something to her mom, who is a former hippie turned uptight sculptor. Come to think of it, that... doesn’t sound like anyone’s vacation.

You can get Snatched beginning May 12.

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn Kick Ass and Take Names in the Raunchy New Snatched Trailer

7 February 2017 6:55 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The second (slightly Nsfw) trailer for Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's highly anticipated mother-daughter comedy is here! The film, called Snatched, features a recently dumped young woman named Emily (Schumer) dragging her uptight mother, Linda (Hawn), on what seems like a picturesque vacation to South America. They're soon kidnapped, and, naturally, hijinks ensue. The costars have already gotten a bit of heat for the film thanks to a dance routine they performed to Beyoncé's "Formation," but hopefully this will be a fantastic return to the big screen for Hawn, who hasn't appeared on film since 2002's The Banger Sisters. Snatched also costars Ike Barinholtz, Wanda Sykes, and Joan Cusack and hits theaters on Mother's Day weekend. Related:Kate Hudson and Amy Schumer Have an Enviable Memorial Day Weekend Girls' Trip »

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events – Season One Review

19 January 2017 1:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe reviews the first season of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

‘Look away, look away’ warns the ominous, and irritatingly catchy opening theme song of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Those who’ve had the pleasure of reading Daniel Handler’s delightfully wicked series of books, which often start with similarly discouraging remarks, however, will know that this piece of advise is best ignored.

A Series of Unfortunate Events, as a series of books, had a huge influence on me as a young child. I remember turning each page in both horror and awe at the impressionable age of 10. The books introduced me to themes I was not likely to find explored in such macabre detail in the literature of C.S. Lewis, or J.K. Rowling, for example.

They were also written with a flair that really caught my young imagination. Lemony Snicket’s »

Eight Execrable Elements of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

17 January 2017 11:49 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Exploring the brightness of the dark children’s show.

Execrable is a word which here means “extremely bad or unpleasant.” It is a word which, although appropriately dour in tone, does not actually describe Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, which is actually an exceptional, thrilling adaptation of a series of thirteen children’s mystery books by Daniel Handler. The show’s freshman season covers the first four books of the series, and follows the unhappy lives of three recent orphans as they bounce from caretaker to caretaker, outwit nefarious plots to steal their parents’ fortune, and uncover countless secrets along the way. Its clunky title and avoidance of easy categorization (it’s billed as a very dark children’s show) may be turn-offs for the uninitiated, but, for many reasons, A Series of Unfortunate Events is actually a bright spot of television that shouldn’t be missed.

‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ Review: Netflix’s Lemony Snicket Series is Exactly What Kids Need in 2017 (Spoilers)

13 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” can be a rather complicated show to explain succinctly, but the new Netflix original series is clear about one point at the onset and throughout: You shouldn’t watch it.

Though I have to vehemently disagree with such advice, each episode opens with Neil Patrick Harris begging audiences to avert their eyes (via an opening song, aptly titled “Look Away”). Patrick Warburton (as Lemony Snicket) then cautions, directly to camera, “If you are interested in stories with happy endings, then you’d be better off somewhere else.” Even the musical number closing Season 1 circles around the line, “You might dream that justice and peace win the day, but that’s not how this story goes.”

In Netflix's upcoming adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Neil Patrick Harris takes on the role of the villainous Count Olaf, which required a great deal of makeup and facial prosthetics, as well as an astounding number of different costumes and wigs.

Harris spoke with Et at the premiere of the stylish adventure series in New York City on Tuesday, where he opened up about the challenges of playing a character that required so much makeup work.

A Series of Unfortunate Events Review: Netflix's Best Show Yet

9 January 2017 1:04 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The prospect of a TV iteration of the thrilling book series Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events was always going to be a welcome one. 

After a movie that failed to kickstart a franchise due to diminished box office returns, it seemed as though there was absolutely no chance of ever witnessing the other books being adapted. 

Then,Netflix ordered a TV series, and it's fantastic. Covering the first four of the 13 books in the first eight episodes was a very good idea. 

The series is essentially comprised of four movies and proves that the stories are better told over a longer arc. All of the key plots from the first four books are very much present throughout the season. 

There are a few meanders from the source material along the way, but they really do the story a lot of justice. These meanders make the whole series a »

TV Review: Lemony Snicket’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ on Netflix

6 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With a lugubrious whimsy that becomes characteristic, Netflix’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” starts by going to great, ironic lengths to convince the viewer to not watch the show. Narrator Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton), who wanders in and out of scenes like a melancholy Rod Serling, begins the series with a long, odd disclaimer that is part comedy, part tragedy. The theme song’s chorus is simply “Look away!” repeated over scenes of the perils the main characters have encountered. Lead Neil Patrick Harris, who plays the villainous Count Olaf, brazenly breaks the fourth wall to comment on the poor quality of streaming television drama. And periodically, just to remind the viewer what they’re in for, Warburton’s Snicket returns to re-up his warning: “Hello, my name is Lemony Snicket, and I am sorry to say that the alleged entertainment you are watching is extremely unpleasant.”

Tonally, “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is a weird »
