Patrick Stewart & John Malkovich Fight Over Glenn Close In Trailer For 'The Wilde Wedding'

What is it about movie weddings that makes generally mature adults act like bratty children? I don't know the answer and neither do you, but this familiar setup to the wedding comedy will never go away and now we have another one in The Wilde Wedding, which features a great cast in Glenn Close, Patrick Stewart, John Malkovich, Minnie Driver, Yael Stone, Noah Emmerich, Grace Van Patten, Peter Facinelli, and more.

The film is directed by Damian Harris (Bad Company), and stars Close as a former movie star who makes the mistake of inviting her ex to her upcoming wedding reception to a different man. Of course, this is just asking for trouble and everybody acts well beneath their age. Dig that lion's mane of hair on Stewart, too. Xavier who?

In THE WILDE WEDDING, now-retired film star Eve Wilde (Glenn Close) prepares for her wedding to husband number four, renowned English writer Harold Alcott (Patrick Stewart) after a whirlwind courtship. At her upstate New York home – in the presence of both Wilde’s first husband, celebrated stage actor Laurence Darling (John Malkovich), and their collective families (Minnie Driver, Jack Davenport, Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli, Noah Emmerich, Grace Van Patten) – the long summer weekend offers the opportunity for everyone to get to know each other a bit more intimately. As sexual sparks begin to fly, there are unforeseen consequences abound.

I can see this being a quiet gem for the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel crowd.  The Wilde Wedding opens September 15th.
