Warner Bros. has unleashed the first trailer for female buddy movie, Hot Pursuit, starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. In the pic, the pair appear as an unlikely duo who team up to escape a motley crew of cops and mobsters. Maintaining the comedic tradition of opposites attract, Witherspoon plays a rigid cop who sticks to the rules with Vergara alongside her as a vivacious gangster’s widow.
The pair become attached at the hip when big-time drug boss Cortez is killed and Vergara’s widow is ordered to appear at his murder trial. Enter her protective law enforcer – tasked with escorting her cross-country – and they are soon on the run from a myriad of assorted baddies out to prevent them reaching their destination.
Storywise, it’s a by-the-numbers set up that’s aided in this trailer by its leading ladies who are at the top of their game. A »
