Shotgun Wedding | Release Date, Cast, Trailer, and Everything We Know So Far

With Shotgun Wedding as its newest entry, the rom-com revolution is flowing this year. The next American film is unlike any previous rom-com, fusing suspense and action into the mix, and is directed by Jason Moore, the same person who oversaw cinematic comedy mainstays like Pitch Perfect and Sisters. The film, starring Josh Duhamel and Jennifer Lopez, depicts every scenario that might go wrong on one of the most important days of your life.

Is There a Shotgun Wedding Trailer?

On October 4, 2022, Prime Video published the Shotgun Wedding trailer. Darcy (Jennifer Lopez) and Tom (Josh Duhamel), who are set to get married on their ideal island, are introduced to us in the trailer. Of course, no particular day would be complete without the couple’s odd families, a hot ex on the guest list, and cold feet, but those are probably the butterflies.

When a band of threatening pirates unexpectedly turns up, they decimate the situation by hijacking the wedding procession. But Darcy and Tom won’t give up without a fight.

On December 7, 2022, a second trailer, or “a Holiday Cut,” as Prime Video has called it, was made available. It gives us yet another peek at all the raunchiness, comedy, and violence that Shotgun Wedding is supposed to include.
