Amy Schumer & Goldie Hawn Get Snatched in First Trailer

The first trailer for Snatched is here, and it only took a minute to elicit our first LOL this Friday. It's a red band trailer, folks, so if you're going to watch it at work you'll want to put your earbuds in.

Written by Kate Dippold (Ghostbusters, The Heat, Parks & Rec) and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies, The Night Before) the plot details for Snatched have been kept under wraps until today. Not that trailer gives that much away, but the central thurst of the plot is clear; Hawn and Schumer are mother and daughter, and after the latter is dumped by her boyfriend right before they were set to take a trip to South America, she decides to take her mom. Unfortunately, they barely get to enjoy themselves before they're kidnapped (er, Snatched), and that's when the real adventure begins.

The pairing of one of comedy's biggest new stars with Hawn, an American icon at this point, couldn't be more exciting. With the supremely able Dippold penning the script (you wonder how much Schumer and Hawn were able to improvise), Snatched is officially on our radar. Schumer's first film, Trainwreck, which she wrote, proved she belongs on the big screen. With Hawn at her side, we're confident in predicting Snatched will make the up-and-coming star two for two.

Snatched comes out, appropriately, on Mother's Day—May 12, 2017.
