'Hot Pursuit' Trailer #2 Has Witherspoon & Vergara in Disguise
Hot Pursuit may be corning the market on fun mindless comedies this summer, and judging from the two new trailers released today, it will be a surprise hit. Especially considering both of its main stars, Sof&#237a Vergara and Reese Witherspoon are so beloved. Here, they seem to have that perfect kind of chemistry that makes a movie like this something really special.

This latest trailer, which comes in both a domestic and U.K. version, proves that Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon isn't the only woman with a mean Justin Bieber impression. Reese Witherspoon, who goes back to her Southern roots playing an extremely petite and air-headed Texas cop, must go undercover as the teen pop idol. But that's not the only disguise her and co-star Sof&#237a Vergara have to take on to evade both a corrupt police force and the cartel. The pair find themselves posing

'Hot Pursuit' Trailer with Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer and photos from Hot Pursuit, which was previously just known as the Untitled Reese Witherspoon/Sofia Vergara Film. As you can see from the footage below, Hot Pursuit is certainly a fitting title. The story follows an uptight and by-the-book cop (Reese Witherspoon) who tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Sof&#237a Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

The supporting cast is rounded out by John Carroll Lynch, Robert Kazinsky, Michael Mosley, Richard T. Jones and Mike Birbiglia. While Sof&#237a Vergara is certainly no stranger to the comedy genre, after starring in Modern Family and last year's indie hit Chef, it seems like quite awhile since we've seen Reese Witherspoon in a comedy, after critically-acclaimed performances in dramas such as Wild and Inherent Vice.

Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) directs this outrageous comedy,

'Bates Motel' Season 2: Love comes to Norma, Norman, Dylan and Emma

Though "Bates Motel's" premiere episode might not have been the show's most romantic, love is coming to White Pine Bay. Everyone from Norma and Norman to Dylan and Emma will have new romantic interests in Season 2, some for the good and some for the bad.

First up is Norma. She'll meet George Heldens (Michael Vartan) in episode 3, and sparks will end up flying between the two.

"Norma very much is trying to find happiness this season, and she's trying to make the life for herself that she's always wanted," series co-creator Carlton Cuse teases to Zap2it at the "Bates Motel" Season 2 premiere red carpet. "It doesn't work out all that well."

George is described as being "sensitive" and "kind," and Vartan promises that he is an all-around good guy.

'Bates Motel': The drug trade world will 'open up' in Season 2

In "Bates Motel" Season 2, the town of White Pine Bay will become a much bigger character on the show. Though viewers realized some of the sinister nature of its inhabitants and the drug trade in the show's first season, those elements will come to the forefront this year.

Because of that, the drama at home with Norma and Norman Bates will be balanced with the growing presence of White Pine Bay's crime world. Many of Season 2's new characters come from the drug families, and their involvement in the main "Bates Motel" storylines will greatly affect all of the main characters on the show.

"The whole drug world will open up this season. The whole underbelly will be exposed," Nestor Carbonell, who plays Sheriff Romero, tells Zap2it at the show's red-carpet premiere. "We'll really get to see how it works, how it's sustained, and how I navigate those waters.
