‘The People We Hate At The Wedding’ Trailer: Kristen Bell And Ben Platt Are Cynical About Love In Amazon’s Wedding Comedy

The explosion of streaming services has led to some unintended consequences. One of those is the number of wedding comedies that are suddenly in production. Prime Video has certainly given quite a few of them home, and now there’s another to look forward to with The People We Hate at the Wedding.

Starring Kristen Bell and Ben Platt, the adaptation of Grant Ginder’s book centers on a pair of dysfunctional siblings who agree to attend their estranged half-sister’s English wedding. Hilarity ensues. Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘s Cynthia Addai-Robinson plays the sibling getting hitched, while Allison Janney plays their mom. Also in the cast are Dustin Milligan, Isaach De BankolĂ©, Karan Soni, Tony Goldwyn, Jorma Taccone, Julian Ovenden, and John McMillan.

The film is directed by Claire Scanlon, known for her work on GLOW, Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt, and the Netflix rom-com Set It Up. The screenplay is by Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin and Wendy Molyneux, who recently wrote a draft of Deadpool 3.

The People We Hate at the Wedding hits Prime Video on November 18th.
