As the temperature has begun to drop it’s clear that the holidays aren’t too far out of reach, meaning studios will begin to market their upcoming slate of year-end releases as much as humanly possible. Though there are many surrounding Christmas Day, the one we have seen the least from thus far has been the delayed The Guilt Trip which only released its first image last month. We have yet to see a single trailer from the film just yet, but today it seems Paramount Pictures wants to begin preparations for one as the first teaser clip from the road comedy has just been released.
Andy Brewster (Rogen) is an inventor who lives in Los Angeles. He’s come up with an amazing organic cleaner but can’t get anyone interested in manufacturing it. Andy plans a business trip to promote the product and decides to take his recently-widowed mother (Streisand) along for the ride. She’s been despondent since his father died, so he comes up with a great idea—during the trip he’ll surprise her with a stop in San Francisco, where one of her ex-flames lives.
Originally called My Mother’s Curse, the script was penned by Dan Fogelman who has been responsible for Disney filmsTangled, Cars, Bolt, and last year’s well received live-action rom-com Crazy Stupid Love.
Directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal), The Guilt Trip hits theaters on Christmas Day.
