Jennifer Coolidge Is J Lo's Hilarious Mother-in-Law-to-Be in the "Shotgun Wedding" Trailer
Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel are finally walking down the aisle. The actors are appearing alongside each other in the upcoming rom-com "Shotgun Wedding," which has long been in the works. Prime Video released the second trailer for the film on Jan. 11, and it shines a spotlight on the movie's supporting cast, especially Jennifer Coolidge as Duhamel's character's hilarious mom.
The film, written by Mark Hammer, will hit Prime Video on Jan. 27 and follows Darcy (Lopez) and Tom (Duhamel), whose families are taken hostage at their destination wedding. According to a description from Prime Video, the R-rated comedy is a "hilarious, adrenaline-fueled adventure as Darcy and Tom must save their loved ones — if they don't kill each other first."
The first trailer for the movie dropped on Oct. 4 and delivered all the promised laughs and hijinks, plus fans' first look at Coolidge, who's rocking some heavy-duty weaponry of her own. Plus, it features a rousing, off-the-cuff family rendition of Edwin McCain's "I'll Be."
Playing a bride and groom wasn't a stretch for the film's stars, as Duhamel and Lopez each recently tied the knot in real life: the former to Audra Mari in September 2022, and the latter to on-again love Ben Affleck last summer.
