JULIA ROBERTS AND GEORGE CLOONEY REUNITE IN FILM TRAILER FOR ‘TICKET TO PARADISE’

Roberts and Clooney were touring together for the first time since the duo last collaborated six years ago. The film casts Roberts and Clooney as two long-divorced parents who come together to stop their daughter from impulsively marrying a man she just met.

“Ticket to Paradise” also marks Roberts’ first romantic comedy in 20 years.

The ‘Pretty Woman’ actress recently opened up about why she hasn’t done a rom-com in years.

“People sometimes misinterpret the time that has passed without me doing a rom-com as if I didn’t want to do one,” Roberts told the outlet. “If I had read something I thought was ‘Notting Hill’ level of writing or crazy level of fun at my best friend’s wedding, I would. They didn’t exist before this movie that I just made and Ol Parker wrote and directed.”
