Come celebrate the most important job in the world with a new trailer from Open Road Films’ Mother’s Day! Shay Mitchell, one of the many stars of Mother’s Day, launched the trailer this morning on her social pages! If that wasn’t enough, the studio has also released a new poster featuring stars Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Jason Sudeikis and Kate Hudson.
This new comedy movie is the third holiday-themed ensemble from director Garry Marshall, who previously brought us Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. His new movie is a big-hearted comedy that invites us all to enjoy the laughter, tears and love as three generations come together in the week leading up to Mother’s Day. Much like his previous ensembles, the cast of Mother’s Day is loaded with talent.
Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Jason Sudeikis and Kate Hudson are joined by Shay Mitchell, Britt Robertson, Timothy Olyphant, Aasif Mandvi, Jack Whitehall and Ella Anderson. Open Road had handed out an April 29 release date, putting it up against Warner Bros.’ Keanu and Focus Features’ Ratchet & Clank. The movie also opens one week before Captain America: Civil War arrives on May 6.
Garry Marshall directs from a screenplay by Tom Hines (New Year’s Eve), Lily Hollander, Anya Kochoff (Monster-in-Law) and Matthew Walker (Valentine’s Day). Garry Marshall‘s Valentine’s Day pulled in $110.4 million domestically during its theatrical run, but New Year’s Eve didn’t fare quite as well, earning $54.5 million. We’ll have to wait and see how Mother’s Day fares when it opens exactly one month from today.
Do you think Mother’s Day has a shot at becoming a late-spring hit at the box office? Even if it does fare well, it will have its work cut out for it one week later when it faces Marvel‘s Captain America: Civil War, which will most likely dominate the month of May in theaters. Let us know what you think after checking out the poster and trailer below.
