Destination Wedding (2018) Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder



This will, of course, be almost 100% script dependent, but I like the concept, especially for Keanu. The writer/director, Victor Levin, only has one prior film credit. Looks like he's mostly done TV work.

This looks amusing. And I love Keanu. And The Lake House is a guilty please. I would probably watch this.

If this was the 90's it would be a big deal.

I assume it has to a Netflix or direct to video release since Ryder would not be a featured star in a theatrical release.

The mountain lion bit made me laugh.

The acting seemed a bit stiff in the trailer but they were also the two worst performances in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, so what do I expect.

Despite that, I do like both Keanu and Winona so I’ll watch this assuming reviews are mostly positive.

The last time I saw her in a movie she was stabbing herself in the face with a nail file, so an improvement there also.

Re: Destination Wedding (2018) Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder

This actually looks entertaining. The movie seems to do a great job of playing off Winona's neurotic, overly emotional persona against Keanu's unaffected, robotic style of delivery. They make a cute couple.

This actually doesn't look half bad.

Keanu's stoic acting works here as his character doesn't seem to be impressed with anything and is basically a miserable person. This feels like an anti-rom-com.

That looks really fun. Surprised to see Ryder get billing over Reeves though.

I'm sorry, those "extras" in the background of the first scene in the airport were too distracting for me. I don't think any of them even blinked during the exchange and it seemed really awkward how everyone was so wooden in the background.

Love Keanu for the most part but he can't play John Wick in every movie going forward.

Amusing trailer.
Like someone has already said...it comes down to the script.

They'd already reunited in Linklater's A SCANNER DARKLY. Both were terrific in that film.

I re-watched it and noticed the same thing.

Extras need to simply be and not take any attention away from the main characters/scene. However, them being totally frozen in their awkward positions has the opposite effect.
