2017 summer movie preview

The summer season is almost upon us and you know what that means: movies are about to get bigger, louder, and more expensive. And, if we’re lucky, they’ll also be pretty great!

The /Film team examined the list of every single major wide release (our indie and streaming preview arrives next week) hitting theaters this summer and argued, debated, and occasionally agreed on which 25 movies we’re most looking forward to watching over the coming months. The staff then voted, ranking them from “movies we want to see” to “movies we want to see right now.” So here’s our 2017 summer movie preview, which features superheroes, evil dolls, talking cars, pirates, sharks, dead strippers, World War II, and so much more.

Snatched Clip

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.

Snatched trailer

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 »

Snatched trailer - Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer

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 »
