Julia Roberts and George Clooney play warring exes trying to stop a wedding in trailer for Ticket to Paradise… as they reunite onscreen for a FOURTH time
Julia Roberts and George Clooney play warring parents in new comedy Ticket to Paradise, the trailer for which was unveiled on Wednesday.
The mega movie stars have reunited for a fourth time onscreen with the project, that is being helmed by Ol Parker, the British director and screenwriter behind the 2018 musical film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
In the newly-released trailer, we see the stars play exes on a mission to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they did 25 years ago by marrying young.
Encore: Julia Roberts and George Clooney play warring exes in trailer for romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise… as they reunite onscreen for a FOURTH time
Their daughter Lily (played by Kaitlyn Dever) meets the love of her life on a post-graduation jaunt to Bali, which is where her parents must travel to in order to change her mind.
However, judging by the trailer it looks as though Julia and George’s trip to save their daughter ends up being a journey in healing their own problems with each other.
From fighting over being sat next to each other on the same plane, to ending up doing tequila shots and embarrassing their child by dancing – it seems as though there could be a reconciliation on the cards.
Well, this is awkward: The trailer begins with George and Julia furious at finding out they are seated next to one another on a flight over to Bali
Feud: Julia, 54, plays the ex-wife of George Clooney’s character who she has to reunite with for their daughter’s wedding
This again: It’s the fourth time that George, 61, has worked with Julia onscreen
Billie Lourd also makes an appearance in the trailer playing Lily’s best friend Wren.
It’s the fourth time that George and Julia have worked together, after Ocean’s Eleven (2001), Ocean’s Twelve (2004), and Money Monster (2016).
Hilariously, Julia recently warned fans in an interview that the rom com with George will ‘probably be terrible’ in a refreshingly honest chat.
Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival last month, she said: ‘It is a romantic comedy. He [George] plays my ex-husband. I think it’s so funny and George is so funny and George and I together, it’s probably going to be terrible because there’s too much potential for it to be great, it’ll just implode on it itself.’
What could possibly go wrong? Hilariously, Julia said last month that the film is ‘probably going to be terrible’

The odd couple: Their characters are forced to spend time together after many years apart
She went on: ‘I think that should be the commercial for the movie: ‘It’s probably going to be terrible.’
Realizing that her comments probably wouldn’t go down too well with studio executives – she added: ‘I’m so glad my publicist is on a plane right now.’
Julia, 54, has a rumored salary of $20million per movie, while George, 61, is also said to be able to command the same fee.
Ticket to Paradise is scheduled to be theatrically released by Universal Pictures on October 21, 2022.
