Mila Kunis has taken on a variety of roles over the last few years, from an aspiring ballet dancer in the Oscar-nominated Black Swan to the savior of the planet in the sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending. Her latest role, however, might be her most heroic.
In the upcoming, raunchy comedy Bad Moms, Kunis plays an overworked mother who decides to reject the overly restrictive, judgmental culture of motherhood and live life to the fullest — which apparently involves boozy parties, fast cars, and wild parties in the heart of suburbia. STX Entertainment has released a pair of trailers — one approved for general audiences, and one an R-rated, red-band preview — that offer a peek at the raunchy comedy from the duo that gave the world The Hangover.
Written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who penned the script for 2009’s The Hangover and both wrote and directed the 2013 comedy 21 & Over, Bad Moms casts Kunis as the stressed-out mother who joins two other moms played by Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Veronica Mars) and Kathryn Hahn (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) in rebelling against the status quo for moms.
Along with Kunis, Bell, and Hahn, the film also features Christina Applegate (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) as PTA president Gwendolyn, as well as Jada Pinkett-Smith (Gotham), Annie Mumolo (Bridesmaids), and Emjay Anthony (Krampus) in supporting roles.
You can watch the red-band trailer for Bad Moms below, but be warned: It definitely earns it R rating.
Bad Moms arrives in theaters July 29, 2016.
