1Avengers: Age of Ultron - May 1
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, Sofía 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 Sofía Vergara have to take on to evade both a corrupt police force and the cartel. The pair find themselves posing »
Some cinema snobs may write off the upcoming comedy Hot Pursuit as trash, but judging from the trailer, this fast-paced action caper has everything needed to make it a gigantic hit when it arrives early this summer. We have the first poster, which pairs odd couple Sofía Vergara and Reese Witherspoon for the first, but probably not the last, time. We've also got another look at the trailer in case you missed it the first time around.
A Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema and MGM production,Hot Pursuit follows an uptight and by the book cop (Reese Witherspoon) who tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow of a drug boss (Sofía Vergara).

The first trailer for action comedy Hot Pursuit has debuted online.
However, things take a turn for the worse when the pair are pursued across Texas by criminals who want to kill them both.
Witherspoon recently praised her co-star Vergara for making the film fun to work on, adding that they struggled to film some scenes as they were "laughing so hard".
Speaking to People about their characters, she said: "[Sofia's] character is so sexy and suave, and I'm so dorky."
Hot Pursuit will be released in cinemas on May 8. »
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 (Sofía 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 Sofía 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.
