Sofía Vergara and Reese Witherspoon are an unlikely buddy comedy duo in 'Hot Pursuit'


The list of action movies that showcase female talent both on- and off-screen is awfully short, but it just got a little bit longer.

The first trailer for Hot Pursuit premiered online today, starring Sofía Vergara, the best non-Phil Dunphy part of Modern Family, and our favorite elevator wildcat Reese Witherspoon. At the helm is director Anne Fletcher, who brought you The Proposal and Step Up (a.k.a literally the reason that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum fell in love and got married and made a human child).


Witherspoon goes against type as a dorky, try-hard cop on a mission to protect Vergara — who's basically playing herself — a drug dealer's widow on the run from murderous cartel members. Watching them insult each other in Spanish is a delight.

Hot Pursuit hits theaters on May 8. Here's the trailer:
