Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore reunite for their third romantic comedy, Blended.
The Warner Bros. film, which reteams the duo after Fifty First Dates and The Wedding Singer, revolves around a man and a woman who, after a disastrous first date, get trapped at a family resort with their kids from previous marriages in tow.
The trailer sets up the premise between Sandler and Barrymore's characters, who have the world's worst first date, and though it seems like the two will be out of each other's lives for good, they get pulled back in when the restaurant mix up their credit cards. After a series of unlikely connections, the two find themselves jetting off to Africa -- at the same time. Their respective vacations start of promising, but when they bump into each other in Africa, things get hairy.
But of course, an attraction begins to grow despite some major mishaps.
Bella Thorne, Joel McHale, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Terry Crews, Kevin Nealon and Emma Fuhrmann co-star. Frank Coraci directed from a screenplay by Clare Sera and Ivan Menchall.
Blended, previously known as The Family Moon, hits theaters during Memorial Day weekend.

Most disastrous blind dates don't end up with the man and woman sharing a family vacation to Africa, but that's exactly what happens in the first trailer for Blended. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star as Jim and Lauren, who suffer through a horrid first date, only to realize they have separately signed up for the same family vacation with their kids. Joel McHale and Wendi McLendon-Covey co-star in this comedy from director Frank Coraci, which arrives in theaters May 23, 2014.
Blended marks the third comedy collaboration between stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, following their successful onscreen pairings in the hit romantic comedies 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer. After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.

Andrew Panay and his Panay Films have signed a first-look deal with Relativity, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Panay, who made his name in the comedy sphere, is segueing from Disney, where he produced such films as Old Dogs and When In Rome. He also was a producer on the Vince Vaughn-Owen Wilson comedy Wedding Crashers and Van Wilder, the cult comedy that starred Ryan Reynolds.
He came onto Relativity’s radar when the company picked up Earth to Echo, a low-budget coming-of-age picture that was initially made by Disney, but was then produced by Panay. When execs at Disney realized Echo no longer fit into their plans, Panay was allowed to shop it around, with the producer choosing to take it to Relativity.
In addition to producing Echo, Panay also wrote the story with Henry Gayden, who then penned the script. The movie, directed by Dave Green, will be now be released on April 25, 2014.
Panay’s deal encompasses both film and television.
Panay, who is also a producer on next year’s Hot Tub Time Machine sequel, is repped by WME and Jackoway Tyerman.

Following last night's news that Divergent director Neil Burger will not return to make the sequel Insurgent, Summit Entertainment released a statement explaining why the filmmaker will not be back at the helm.
"Neil Burger is a rock star and he is doing a fantastic job on Divergent. We can't wait for you to see the film. But as amazing as Neil is he still cannot be in two places at once and thus needs to finish post production on Divergent while we gear up to start production on Insurgent. So, although Neil will continue on as part of our Divergent family as an executive producer, we sadly have to find another director for the next chapter in Veronica Roth's fantastic series."
Summit has already set a March 20, 2015 release date for Insurgent, along with a March 18, 2016 release date for the final adaptation Allegiant.
Shailene Woodley stars in Divergent as Tris Prior, a young woman who has to decide which of five factions she wants to live the rest of her life under. When Tris learns she is a "Divergent," someone who doesn't fit within any of the five factions, she must try to unravel a conspiracy that could alter her universe forever. Kate Winslet, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Zoë Kravitz and Ray Stevenson also star.

Disney Interactive has one piece of advice for you this afternoon: stay on target.
The company has released a trailer for Star Wars: Attack Squadron, a PVP game to launch in 2014. Players will be able to play in three different modes: a team dogfight, a free-for-all against 15 other players and "Base Defense," in which you and other players have to work together to defend -- or attack -- a base.
Additionally, players will be able to earn points after matches and use them to upgrade and personalize their ships as they play, as well as develop pilot communities with other players. The reveal trailer doesn't feature any gameplay footage, but instead some of the ships that will feature in the game -- including, of course, the X-Wing Fighter.
Interested parties are directed to the game's official site, where they can sign up to participate in a beta test for the game, ahead of its release next year. Just remember: pay attention to Admiral Ackbar. He'll warn you of any potential traps.
