The latest trailer for "Long Shot" is here, complete with an excellent "Pretty Woman" reference.
Lionsgate dropped the preview on Wednesday, again showing off the upcoming rom-com starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen. The two actors star as an unlikely romantic pair; she plays Charlotte Field, the U.S. secretary of state and a presidential candidate, while he portrays Fred Flarsky, a down-on-his-luck journalist. Another character describes the mismatch to Fred in a creative way: "It's 'Pretty Woman,' but she's Richard Gere and you're Julia Roberts."
The film also stars June Diane Raphael, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Ravi Patel, Bob Odenkirk, Andy Serkis, Randall Park. Meanwhile, Alexander Skarsgård appears as a fictional Canadian prime minister unafraid to use a bad pickup line. The script was written by Dan Sterling and Liz Hannah, and the film is directed by Jonathan Levine.
"Long Shot" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas, on March 9, and it opens in theaters May 3.
