Hot Pursuit Trailer: Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara Go on the Run

9 April 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. UK has released a new international trailer for Anne Flectcher’s (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip) buddy cop comedy, Hot Pursuit. The film follows an uptight cop (Reese Witherspoon) who is tasked with protecting vivacious widow of a drug kingpin (Sofia Vergara) as they hit the road, on the run from criminals and crooked cops. The new trailer hits a lot of the same beats as the previous one, but it's just a little less funny, making me worry that the appeal of the first trailer may have been a trick of editing. Witherspoon and Vergara are both accomplished comedic actresses and they seem to have a nice chemistry, so I'm going to continue to give this film the benefit of the doubt. Check out the new trailer below. The film also stars Robert Kazinsky, Mike Birbiglia, and John Carrol Lynch and opens in theaters on May 8th. »

'Hot Pursuit' Trailer #2 Has Witherspoon & Vergara in Disguise

9 April 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 teaser: Reese Witherspoon is on the run with Sofía Vergara

9 April 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Reese Witherspoon is on the run from the world's most dangerous crooks in a new trailer for Hot Pursuit.

The Academy Award winner stars in The Guilt Trip director Anne Fletcher's comedy as a bumbling police officer.

Officer Cooper's (Witherspoon) latest assignment has her protecting the demanding widow of a drug dealer (Sofía Vergara) from criminals out for revenge.

Hot Pursuit marks Witherspoon's return to comedy following a string of roles in critically-acclaimed dramas.

The actress earned an Academy Award nomination this year for playing Pacific Crest Trail hiker Cheryl Strayed in Wild.

Witherspoon has also earned positive reviews for appearing in the thriller Mud and war refugee drama The Good Lie.

Hot Pursuit opens on May 8 in the Us and on July 31 in the UK. »

Reese Witherspoon Dresses Up as Justin Bieber in New 'Hot Pursuit' Trailer

9 April 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't think anyone is expecting much from Hot Pursuit. I can't say I've seen too many of director Anne Fletcher's films, but I can say I've avoided a couple of them, those being The Guilt Trip and 27 Dresses, and I'm no fan of The Proposal. To her credit, she did kick start the Step Up franchise. So... she has that going for her. As for Hot Pursuit, Fletcher does have some talent in her favor with Reese Witherspoon playing an "uptight and by-the-book cop" who gets involved with the widow of a drug lord played by Sofia Vergara. The two end up traveling across Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen as supposed hilarity ensues. John Carroll Lynch, Rob Kazinsky and Richard T. Jones co-star. Warner Bros. is releasing the film on May 8 and a new international trailer has just dropped, which ends with Witherspoon dressing up as Justin Bieber. »

Interview: Director Dan Fogelman on Nurturing ‘Danny Collins’

23 March 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Dan Fogelman is a familiar behind-the-scenes creator, having wrote scripts and screenplays for “Cars,” “Fred Claus,” “Tangled,” “The Guilt Trip” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” He takes on his first directorial effort, the story of “Danny Collins,” a faded rock star who finds redemption through a lost letter from John Lennon.

Danny Collins” stars Al Pacino as the title character, who goes on a journey to find his estranged son, portrayed by Bobby Cannavale. The all-star cast includes Annette Bening, Jennifer Garner and Christopher Plummer, and highlights the process of re-engineering a life that has drifted the wrong way.

Al Pacino Rings True as Danny Collins

19 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

This likable movie rises or falls on Al Pacino’s ability to convince us that he’s an aging pop star…and he does. Danny Collins follows a familiar story path, but it’s such a pleasure to watch Pacino (and fellow cast members Christopher Plummer, Annette Bening, Bobby Cannavale, and Jennifer Garner) that it barely matters. I’ve made this comparison before, but this kind of movie is the cinematic equivalent of comfort food. Dan Fogelman (The Guilt Trip, Last Vegas) makes his directorial debut with a screenplay he wrote about a Billy Joel-like singer who’s coasting on decades of fame, giving his aging audiences exactly what they want to hear—especially his signature song, “Baby...

Dan in Real Life: Fogelman’s Sugary Directorial Debut Hobbles its Own Charms

Screenwriter and producer Dan Fogelman makes a high profile directorial debut with Danny Collins, nabbing a handful of high profile names to lead his glossy family issue drama wrapped in melodramatic showbiz antics. When he’s not writing directly for children and family friendly audiences (Cars; Bolt; Tangled), Fogelman’s screenplays are often gilded with jejunish countenances (The Guilt Trip; Last Vegas), the types of outrageous yet uncomplicated cinematic fabrications that hail from some medicated hinterland beyond the realm of mere escapism. His first stint as a director finds him returning to this hypertrophic mode of drama wherein potentially insurmountable life tragedies get mushed together to equal one big positive, though kernels of authentic emotions sometimes shine through the contrivances.

Danny Collins (Al Pacino) is an aging rock star currently touring with another greatest hits album. »

11 March 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We have the first poster, which pairs odd couple Sof&#237a 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.

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 (Sof&#237a Vergara).

'Hot Pursuit' Trailer: Reese Witherspoon And Sofia Vergara Are On The Run

13 February 2015 6:17 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This summer, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara will star in a buddy cop comedy called Hot Pursuit. Reese Witherspoon plays the goody-goody cop and Sofia Vergara is the sexy widow of a drug lord. Check out the first trailer below.

Directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip), Hot Pursuit, follows an uptight cop tries to protect a sexy and outgoing widow of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

The comedy also stars John Carroll Lynch (“American Horror Story,” Shutter Island), Rob Kazinsky (“True Blood,” Pacific Rim) and Richard T. Jones (“Hawaii Five-o,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”).

Hot Pursuit feels like a knock-off of some comedy starring Melissa McCarthy. However, it is interesting to see this duo in a comedy that you would normally see someone like McCarthy, Sandra Bullock and/or Jennifer Aniston. Also, it's nice to see »

Reese Witherspoon & Sofia Vergara Buddy Up in 'Hot Pursuit' (Video)

13 February 2015 7:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Oscar nominee Reese Witherspoon hasn't lost her comedy chops. The trailer for her upcoming action/comedy movie with Sofia Vergara, "Hot Pursuit," is promisingly funny! Witherspoon plays Officer Cooper, a tiny Texan police officer whose latest assignment is to drive a drug dealer's widow to Dallas to testify against the men who killed her husband. As Daniella Riva, Sofia Vergara seems to be well-matched with Witherspoon in terms of comic timing and physical humor.

Previously known as "Don't Mess With Texas," "Hot Pursuit" is being described as "The Heat" meets "Midnight Run." Director Anne Fletcher is known for her work on "The Guilt Trip," "The Proposal," "27 Dresses," and the original "Step Up." That's right, the one with Channing Tatum and his now-wife Jenna Dewan Tatum. Vergara and Witherspoon are also producers.

"Hot Pursuit" opens on May 8, kicking off a summer full of funny ladies.

Watch: First Trailer for 'Hot Pursuit' Starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara

Remember that movie Hot Pursuit from 1987, starring John Cusackc You know, the one where he goes to the Caribbean trying to find his girlfriend on vacation. Apparently, this new Hot Pursuit has absolutely nothing to do with that film. How dare they mislead me by using the title of that '80s classic! (If you haven't seen it, you aren't missing anything). Instead, this is a buddy action comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, everyone's favorite comedians. Wait, they aren'tc Well, this is certainly news to me. This whole film is news to me, actually. I also don't go seeking information about films starring Sofia Vergara, so I guess that makes sense. The first trailer, as well as three pictures, are available for your eyes to see below. With a rather unimpressive buddy duo in the leads and coming from director Anne Fletcher (27 Dresses, The Guilt Trip), my excitement »

Femme Filmmakers Are Opening Up the Pic Pipeline

2 February 2015 3:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The chatter championing opportunity for women directors has reached a new peak even while the stats remain dire. According to USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, female helmers represented only 4% of the 100 top-grossing films of 2012. In 2014, some high-profile directors made headlines during awards season, including Angelina Jolie with her second feature, “Unbroken,” and Ava DuVernay with “Selma.”

Despite any awards-season snubs, it is important to shine the spotlight on what’s in the pipeline for 2015 and 2016 for femme helmers. According to Melissa Silverstein, founder and editor of website Women and Hollywood, “When you have women behind the scenes in power you see more women on screen — and that’s why this discussion is so important.”

Indeed, Silverstein notes that one of 2015’s highest-profile films, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” is also 2015’s highest-profile female-directed movie, by Sam Taylor-Johnson.

“It’s directed and written by women,” Silverstein says. “While ‘Fifty »
