Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara star in an upcoming new comedy called Hot Pursuit, directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses), and today we have the first trailer. I know this isn't the first comedy that Witherspoon has made, but it’s weird to see her do a movie like this, especially after reaching a milestone with Wild and being nominated for a second Oscar for her role in that movie. Hot Pursuit just seems like a step in the wrong direction after an accomplishment like that. I’m just not into movies like this, but there are plenty of people out there who are. I just think anyone could have played the character she plays. Here’s the synopsis:
An uptight and by-the-book cop (Witherspoon) tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.
The movie also stars John Carroll Lynch, Rob Kazinsky, and Richard T. Jones. It will be released on May 8th, 2015.
