Father of the Bride Remake Premieres Thurs 16 June on FOXTEL



FATHER OF THE BRIDE, a modern rom-com starring Gloria Estefan and Andy Garcia is set to premiere On Demand on FOXTEL on Thursday, June 16 at 5.00pm.

This sparkling story of a family and its unbreakable bonds, updated from the timeless classic of the same name and produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, illustrates the surprising and funny ways the heart can adapt in the name of love. Adria Arjona, Isabela Merced, Diego Boneta, Pedro Damián, and Chloe Fineman also star in the film.

Long-time married couple Billy (Garcia) and Ingrid (Estefan) are surprised when their eldest daughter Sofia (Arjona) comes home to Miami for a visit. But the surprises just keep coming when she announces a new boyfriend, Adan (Boneta) – who is now her fiancé – and their plans for a quick-turnaround wedding and a new life together in Mexico, where Adan’s family is from.

Old-fashioned Billy is at first opposed to the wedding. A prominent architect and family man, he feels his hard-fought success and dedication to his heritage earn him the right to call the shots. The same could also be said for Adan’s equally headstrong father, Hernan (Damián), who soon arrives with his own traditions and family pride in tow.

With both iron-willed fathers vying to take charge of the festivities, it becomes a prideful game of one-upmanship, as cultures clash, generations take sides and competing traditions collide, as the roller coaster ride of wedding planning races toward the altar.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE is a Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max film, directed by Gaz Alazraki and produced by Oscar winners Plan B Entertainment (Moonlight; 12 Years a Slave; Eat Pray Love). The screenplay is by Matt Lopez, based on the novel by Edward Streeter. The executive producers are Pitt, Garcia, Ted Gidlow and Jesse Ehrman.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE premieres on Thursday, June 16 from 5.00pm AEST On Demand on FOXTEL and on the Movies Premiere channel on Monday, June 20 at 8.30pm AEST.
