Hot Pursuit has taken the comedy action flick genre and given it a new spice of life. That comes in the form of stars Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon.
Witherspoon plays a small town Southern cop who is charged with protecting Vergara’s drug lord wife and escorting her to trial in Texas. It kind of reminds us, in some ways, of Midnight Run.
Warner Bros. and MGM have released the film’s first poster, and given what we saw in that Hot Pursuit trailer, they truly captured what it is that will compel audiences into theaters -- Witherspoon and Vergara.
We’ve seen this format before, but there’s something interesting about two women on the road, trying to stay alive and also trying to not wring each other’s necks.
Hot Pursuit lands in theaters May 8.
