Comedian Amy Schumer returns for more laughs in her latest action-comedy adventure film "Snatched," co-starring Hollywood legend Goldie Hawn as her overly neurotic mother who is very reluctant about joining her daughter on a getaway trip to South America. Check out the newly-released first look trailers (both Red and Green Band) for the film, above.
The mother-daughter adventure begins with Emily (Schumer) getting dumped by her current boyfriend right before her planned trip to Ecuador is about to happen. After grieving about her predicament, Emily spontaneously invites her overly-cautious mother (Hawn) to join her on a last-minute getaway trip to paradise. Unfortunately for the duo, they soon find themselves snatched at gunpoint by a gang of kidnappers deep in the Amazonian jungle where they well have to use their strengths and wits in order to survive.
Written by Katie Dippold (The Heat, Ghostbusters), and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies, The Night Before), the film co-stars Joan Cusack, Ike Barinholtz, Wanda Sykes, Christopher Meloni, Randall Park, and Oscar Jaenada.
"Snatched" is scheduled to open in theaters wide on Mother's Day Weekend, May 12, 2017.
When her boyfriend dumps Emily, a spontaneous woman in her 30s, she persuades her ultra-cautious mom to accompany her on a vacation to Ecuador. At Emily's insistence, the pair seek out adventure, but suddenly find themselves kidnapped. When these two very different women are trapped on this wild journey, their bond as mother and daughter is tested and strengthened while they attempt to navigate the jungle and escape.
