Warner Bros. Pictures has released the official trailer for Father of the Bride, its forthcoming family comedy, which is a new take on Edward Streeter’s 1949 novel of the same name. Starring Andy Garcia and Gloria Estefan, the film will be available for streaming on June 16, exclusively on HBO Max.
The video, which you can check out below, features a loving father who’s on the verge of getting divorced after a year of couples therapy. His life continues to change when his daughter announces her sudden engagement.
Father of the Bride is a modern rom-com about the sparkling story of “a family and its unbreakable bonds illustrate the surprising and funny ways the heart can adapt in the name of love.” It is directed by Gaz Alazraki from a screenplay written by Matt Lopez. It stars Andy Garcia, Gloria Estefan, Adria Arjona, Isabela Merced, Diego Boneta and Chloe Fineman.
“Long-married Billy and Ingrid are surprised when their eldest daughter Sofia comes home to Miami for a visit,” reads the synopsis. “But the surprises just keep coming when she announces a new boyfriend, Adan —who is now her fiancé—and their plans for a quick-turnaround wedding and a new life together in Mexico, where Adan’s family is from. Sofia’s quickfire revelations keep Billy and Ingrid from making their own disclosure—that they’re calling quits on their marriage—but both agree to delay the news and play the loving couple for the benefit of the family. Old-fashioned Billy is at first opposed to the wedding, but he is eventually swayed—as long as his opinions as father of the bride carry the most weight in all things matrimonial.
A prominent architect and family man, Billy feels his hard-fought success and dedication to his heritage earn him the right to call the shots. After all his achievements, why is he suddenly seen as the bad guy? The same could also be said for Adan’s equally headstrong father, Hernan, who soon arrives with his own traditions and family pride in tow. With both iron-willed fathers vying to take charge of the festivities, it becomes a prideful game of one-upmanship, as cultures clash, generations take sides and competing traditions collide. Family relationships are tested, along with the couple at the center of it all, as the roller coaster ride of wedding planning races toward the altar.”
Executive producers are Brad Pitt, Andy Garcia, Ted Gidlow, and Jesse Ehrman. Father of the Bride is a Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max Present A Plan B Entertainment Production.
