A group of overworked and under-appreciated mothers decide to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities in the red band and green band trailers for the hilarious and highly anticipated comedy Bad Moms. Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn star as these mothers, who rebel against the system, and an uptight PTA leader (Christina Applegate) in this comedy that hits theaters July 29. Bad Moms will have its work cut it out for itself in theaters this summer, going up against Universal’s long-awaited action sequel Jason Bourne.
In this new comedy from STX Entertainment and the writers of The Hangover, Amy (Mila Kunis) has a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she’s about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms (Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn (Christina Applegate) and her clique of devoted perfect moms.
The supporting cast for Bad Moms includes Jada Pinkett Smith, Annie Mumolo, Kesha, Emjay Anthony, Oona Laurence and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who wrote the original comedy classic The Hangover, both direct from their own original script. The filmmakers made their directorial debut with the 2013 comedy 21 & Over, which they also wrote. Their other writing credits include The Change-Up, Flypaper, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Four Christmases and Rebound.
Bill Block and Suzanne Todd are producing for STX Entertainment. The studio is also releasing The Free State of Jones, starring Matthew McConaughey on June 24 and The Space Between Us on August 19. The month of July isn’t exactly chocked full of comedies, with Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates hitting theaters on July 8, and the horror-comedy reboot Ghostbusters arriving one week later on July 15, so it’s possible that Bad Moms could find a niche with comedy-starved adults this summer season.
It’s also worth noting, though, that Bad Moms is sandwiched between two highly-anticipated summer movies. Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond opens on July 22, with Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad hitting theaters on August 5. The red band trailer does feature plenty of adult language, so be sure to watch at your own risk, but we also have the green band trailer below that is suitable for all audiences. We also have a new poster and photos from this comedy, which you can check out below both trailers.
