Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar: watch the trailer for Kristen Wiig’s new film

Posted by for Film

Here’s everything we know about Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo’s new film, Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar, which will be available to stream in February.

Who’s in the mood to watch something funny? Considering we’ve just made it through the longest, darkest and gloomiest January in living memory, most of us are probably in need of having a good laugh. 

Luckily, the creators of hit 2011 film Bridesmaids – Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo – have just released a very funny trailer for their new movie, which is due for release in the UK soon. So plenty of laughter is on its way.

Wiig and Mumolo announced they were working on another film together over six years ago. That film, titled Star & Barb Go To Vista Del Mar, has finally been made and will land on our screens later this month.

Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar tells the story of two best friends who embark on the adventure of a lifetime when they decide to leave their small Midwestern town for the first time ever and go on a holiday to Florida. It promises laughter, tears and an evil villain who plots to kill everyone in town.

Without seeing their faces, we meet Barb and Star, who discuss movie trailers before sharing their own. Madonna’s Holiday plays while we are teased with lots of theatrical dancing, layers of sunscreen and a pair of shell-shaped bed boards. We also get a sneak peek at the secret evil lair. And yes, that is Jamie Dornan you can see in a Hawaiian shirt.

It looks like the perfect bit of laugh-out-loud escapism, right? And if it’s piqued your interest, a second trailer has just been released…

Doesn’t it look like the perfect light tonic that we need right now? And we don’t have too long to wait either, because Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar will be available to rent on all streaming platforms from 12 February.

So grab your culottes and cocktails, and prepare to see Dornan as you’ve never seen him before.
