Summer movie season is right around the corner. It unofficially begins in April with The Fate of the Furious, but really swings into gear at the beginning of May with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While summer is a place for big screen spectacle, there will be some blockbuster comedies hoping to make a dent as well, and the first one comes from Amy Schumer.
Snatched sees the Trainwreck star teamed up with Goldie Hawn on a little mother-daughter excursion to a nice exotic locale. Even though they’re not exactly getting along or bonding, they’re soon forced to spend even more time with each other as they end up kidnapped by some dangerous locals, leaving them to rely on each other to escape and survive. It’s funnier than it sounds, and a new clip shows the amusing dynamic between Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn.

You might think that nothing could be more awkward and annoying than going on a vacation with your mom that you’d originally intended to take with your boyfriend. But in Snatched, things go from bad to so, so much worse when Emily (Amy Schumer) and Linda (Goldie Hawn) are kidnapped — snatched — during their trip. Still, it’s not all terrible. Turns out all that peril provides the perfect opportunity for some serious mother-daughter bonding. Watch the Snatched trailer below. Read More »

For the first time since 2002, Goldie Hawn is returning to the big screen. 20th Century Fox has just released the first trailers for Snatched, which stars her and Amy Schumer as a mother and daughter who go on vacation to “South America” (I don’t think anyone in the trailers ever gets more specific than that), only to get kidnapped. But don’t worry — it’s a comedy, so everyone’s probably going to turn out fine.
Snatched has a lot of interesting talent behind the camera as well, including director Jonathan Levine (50/50) and screenwriter Katie Dippold (The Heat). Watch two Snatched trailers — one red-band, one green-band — after the jump. Read More »
Not too long ago, we heard about First Wives Club stars Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn reuniting for a comedy at Netflix called Divanation about three former members of a popular singing group who are forced to reunite after being apart for 30 years. And it sounds like Hawn is lining up another role that will take her back to the big screen as well.
News has surfaced that Goldie Hawn is in early talks to play Amy Schumer‘s mother in the untitled comedy from Warm Bodies and 50/50 director Jonathan Levine that we first heard about last August. Find out more about this Goldie Hawn Amy Schumer team-up after the jump. Read More »
The First Wives Club is back! Kinda. It’s been nearly 20 years since Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton starred in the comedy about three women striking back at their ex-husbands and getting what they deserve, and now the trio of actresses will reunited for a new feature film project at Netflix called Divanation. And it sounds like the perfect project for these veteran actresses. Read More »
With his latest film, Rock of Ages, two weeks away from release, director Adam Shankman has locked in his follow-up project. It’s a comedy called This Is Where I Leave You and will star Jason Bateman, Zac Efron, Goldie Hawn and Leslie Mann as family members who return home to sit shiva for their father. Locked in a house for seven days, they air a lot of dirty laundry. (Figuratively, of course. Though with a big family, over seven days, there’s probably some literal laundry too.) The script is written by Jonathan Tropper based on his own novel of the same name. There’s more after the jump. Read More »
