Things We Saw Today: The First Major Romcom of 2023 Just Dropped a Trailer, & It’s … Something Else

Remember when Armie Hammer was supposed to be in a movie with Jennifer Lopez, but then came the allegations of rape, abuse, and cannibalism? Well, that movie is in post-production, and the trailer dropped. Attempting to subvert the phrase “shotgun wedding,” this film stars Lopez (Darcy) and Josh Duhamel (Tom) as a couple-to-be at a destination wedding. The supporting cast includes Jennifer Coolidge (as Tom’s mom) and Sônia Braga (as Darcy’s mom.) If you’re wondering about Coolidge being so close in age to her son, well … Hammer’s age made more sense. That’s not the only off thing about this trailer, though.

The premise alone is interesting. A big wedding serves up so much stress Tom and Darcy appear to have second thoughts. When they’re tested to survive a violent event, the couple grows closer. (Honestly sounds like more of a horror than an action-adventure.) However, I can’t get past the terrible framing of the trailer.
