Long Shot flips the tables on a common romantic comedy trope. Instead of the rich and powerful man and a rough-around-the-edges woman (à la Pretty Woman), Long Shot swaps those gender roles around. The new trailer was released today and is far more raunchy than its predecessor.

What is the Long Shot release date?

Long Shot is out in UK cinemas on Friday, May 3, 2019.

The movie is also out in American cinemas on the same day.

Long Shot had its premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival on March 9, 2019.

The last country to see the rom-com is Portugal on June 20, 2019.

“When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humour and his memories of her youthful idealism.

“As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors.

“A fish out of water on Charlotte’s elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamorous lifestyle in the limelight.

“However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.”
