Julia Roberts celebrates her triumphant return to rom-com. The legendary actress stars in the first trailer for ‘Ticket to Paradise,’ a new movie that reunites her with her ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ co-star George Clooney.
Directed by Ol Parker (“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”, “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”), “Ticket to Paradise” stars Roberts and Clooney as two long-divorced parents who wed on the spur of the moment. When her daughter Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) embarks on a trip to Bali after graduation and decides to marry a local woman, the two fly to Indonesia to talk her out of making the same mistake they once made. The trailer highlights the strained relationship between the two characters, even as they try to bond for the sake of their daughter.
“The worst 19 years of my life,” Clooney says during an exchange in the trailer, to which Roberts replies, “We were only married five years.”
“I include recovery,” he shoots back.
Parker is directing the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Daniel Pipski. The film’s cast includes Roberts, Clooney and Dever, as well as Billie Lourd (“Booksmart”) and Lucas Bravo (“Emily in Paris”). In addition to starring roles, Roberts and Clooney produce with Deborah Balderstone, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Marisa Yeres Gill, Lisa Roberts Gillan, Sarah Harvey and Grant Heslov. The film is a co-production of Working Title Films, Smokehouse Pictures and Red Om Films, with distribution by Universal Pictures.
Ticket to Paradise hits theaters on October 21st. The film will stream on Peacock 45 days after its theatrical premiere. Check out the full trailer below.
