'Story in 60 Seconds' New Trailer for 'Marry Me' with Jennifer Lopez
"Do you, some guy, take Kat to be your lawfully wedded wife?" Universal Pictures has debuted a fun new "60 second" trailer for Marry Me, the romantic comedy arriving in theaters this February. The trailer plays on the "tell you the story of this movie in 60 seconds" concept, kind of a Tiktok idea, but it works. Jennifer Lopez stars as musical superstar Kat Valdez and Owen Wilson as Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher—total strangers who agree to marry and then get to know each other after. Just as she's about to marry a music superstar, played by Maluma (who is also narrating this promo trailer), Kat learns he cheated on her and decides to marry a face in the crowd. "If what you know lets you down, then perhaps what you don't know is the answer, and so, in a moment of inspired insanity, Kat chooses to marry Charlie." The charming film also stars John Bradley, Michelle Buteau, and Utkarsh Ambudkar. The first trailer for this is very good, made me really want to see it. This one is more of a promo that is trying to build up the buzz before release.
Here's the new "60 second" trailer for Kat Coiro's Marry Me, direct from Universal's YouTube:
Kat Valdez (Lopez) is half of the sexiest celebrity power couple on Earth with music supernova Bastian (Maluma). As Kat & Bastian's inescapable hit single, "Marry Me," climbs the charts, they are about to be wed before an audience of their fans in a ceremony that will be streamed around the world. Divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) has been dragged to the concert by his daughter Lou (Chloe Coleman) and his best friend (Sarah Silverman). When Kat learns, seconds before, that Bastian has cheated on her with her assistant, her life turns left as she has a meltdown on stage, questioning love, truth & loyalty. As her gossamer world falls away, she locks eyes with a stranger—a face in the crowd. Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive reaction evolves into an unexpected romance. Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong? Marry Me is directed by producer / filmmaker Kat Coiro, director of the films Life Happens, And While We Were Here, and A Case of You previously, now working on Marvel's "She-Hulk". The screenplay is written by Harper Dill, John Rogers, and Tami Sagher. Adapted from the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby. Produced by Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, John Rogers, Benny Medina. Universal will debut Marry Me in theaters nationwide on February 11th, 2022, for Valentine's Day, early next year. Thoughts?
