We've been quaking in our seats ever since we were told that Julia Roberts would be finally making her return to romantic comedies with the film, Ticket To Paradise! To make matters even more exciting, we received the news that she would be reuniting with her iconic Ocean's Eleven co-star, George Clooney, for the project. With the film marking both actors' long-awaited return to romantic comedies, we'd say the pressure is on for it to deliver. Finally, the trailer is here, and it's screaming comedy gold! As promised, here are all the updates...

The film follows the story of two ex-spouses (Clooney and Roberts) on a desperate flee to Bali to save their daughter (Kaitlyn Dever) from marrying a man (Lucas Bravo's Gede) she only just met. As soon as the trailer starts, so do the jokes - and the on-screen chemistry between the actors is instantly palpable. "Worst 19 years of my life," Clooney says in character, referring to the couple's marriage. "We were only married for five," she responds. "I'm counting the recovery," he snaps back. LOL.

Believing they can stop their daughter from making the same mistake they did twenty-five years ago by marrying so young and ruining their careers, they set out to sabotage the young couple's relationship in whatever ways they can think of. "We have to call a truce to make this work," Roberts tells Clooney, who agrees. In the process of working together, they discover that there may be some unfinished business when it comes to their own romantic spark. Yes, it's slightly predictable, but it's a romantic comedy! What more do you want?!

Julia Roberts first stole our hearts in her iconic romantic movies Pretty Woman and Notting Hill. However, in recent years she has skipped out on projects such as these. For Roberts, she explained it was about waiting for the perfect script and co-star to come along. After seeing this trailer, it's clear why this was the chosen one! The rest of the star-studded cast includes Billie Lourd, Lucas Bravo, Amanda O'Dempsey, Rowan Chapman, Murran Kain, and Vanessa Everett. Catch the film in theatres on October 21 and on Peacock forty-five days later. Until then, learn more about her incredible career!
