Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder reunite for a “Destination Wedding.”
Regatta Films released the official trailer for the upcoming romantic comedy in which Reeves and Ryder star as two strangers who cross paths en route to a wedding. They irritate and annoy each other with their individual misery, eventually starting to develop a mutual attraction.
This is the fourth film in which Reeves and Ryder have appeared together. They both starred in “Bram Stoker’s Drakula” in 1992. They reteamed for “A Scanner Darkly” in 2006 and “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” in 2009.
Both stars rose to fame in the 1980s. Ryder made her film debut in the drama, “Lucas” in 1986. She followed that up with breakthrough roles in “Beetlejuice” and “Heathers” in 1988. As the 90s came along, she starred in “Edward Scissorhands” and “Mermaids.” Throughout the decade she starred in films like “Reality Bites,” “Little Women,” and “Girl, Interrupted.” There have been several times over the years where fans have proclaimed her “comeback,” but she never went anywhere, appearing in films and television in nearly every year since her debut. She now stars on the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things.”
Likewise, Reeves got his start in television in the mid-80s, playing a variety of roles. But it was his breakout performance as Ted “Theodore” Logan in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” that turned him into a star on the rise. He went on to other films including “Parenthood,” and then more dramatic work. In 1991, he starred in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Point Break, giving the world its first glimpse of Reeves as an action star. He would later take on a similar role in “Speed,” which eventually led to “The Matrix.” The rising generation now knows him best as John Wick.
“Destination Wedding” is written and directed by Victor Levin. The four-time Emmy nominee is best known for his work on “Mad Men” and “Mad About You.” He also wrote the romantic comedies “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!” and “Then She Found Me.”
“Destination Wedding” will arrive in theaters on August 24.
