The feature film called "Shotgun Wedding" will not have its big premiere in theaters as the last film starring J.Lo "Marry me" had. That movie, classified as a romantic comedy, premiered earlier this year, led the US box office for several weeks and has grossed almost 50 million dollars worldwide.
“Shotgun Wedding” will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the United States. This is because the streaming platform acquired the distribution rights from the producer company Lionsgate.
Press reports, however, speculates that the premiere may take place first on the streaming platform, and later in US theaters.
Amazon Prime Video did not confirmed when the film will be available on its platform.
About “Shotgun Wedding”
The feature film stars Latin actress Jennifer Lopez and American Josh Duhamel, well-known for his role in "Transformers."
The film, with scenes of action, romance and comedy, tells the story of a couple in the middle of a wedding celebration. First, the bride and groom have to deal with the differences between the political families, and later, with criminals who will take the party guests hostage.
In addition to Duhamel and López, the cast of “Shotgun Wedding” includes Cheech Marin, Sonia Braga, Jennifer Coolidge, Selena Tan and Lenny Kravitz. The actor Armie Hammer was initially one of leading actors along with J.Lo, but his participation in the project was ruled out after he was denounced for abuse and sexual harassment.
J.Lo, in addition to being the starring actor, produces the film as well.
“Shotgun Wedding” is directed by American filmmaker Jason Moore. The script has been written by Liz Meriwether and Mark Hammer.
J.Lo in love with streaming platforms
This is not the first J.Lo movie to be released on a streaming platform. The other production is "The Mother", whose filming has taken place in the Canary Islands, and which will premiere at the end of 2022.
The thriller, which will air in Netflix, tells the story of a murderous woman, played by López, who comes out of hiding place to save her daughter's life. “The Mother” is directed by New Zealand's Niki Caro. Besides the Latina actress, Gael García Bernal, Lucy Paez, Joseph Fiennes, Omari Hardwick, and Paul Raci are on the cast.
