A press junket scheduled for “The Wedding Ringer” this past Sunday was canceled given Sony‘s ongoing headaches regarding the hack at the studio. But they are pushing on with the promotional train and weathering the storm, dropping another new trailer this evening, along with a recent red band clip and music video for the movie.
Kevin Hart leads the picture, and even though it’s coming out just next month, don’t think it’s a movie that the studio doesn’t believe in. In the same frame this year, Hart teamed with Ice Cube for “Ride Along,” and it brought in over $150 million worldwide, $130 million of that from domestic box office receipts alone. Can he have the same kind of success with Josh Gad, in this movie about a schlub who hires Hart to be the Best Man at his wedding, leading to wacky hijinks? But it’s that kind of stuff audiences love from Hart, and this looks like it’ll deliver what his fans expect.
“The Wedding Ringer” opens on January 16th. Check out the new trailer below, a red band clip featuring Olivia Thirlby, along with a music video by Aloe Blacc.
