ARC Entertainment has debuted the first trailer and poster for Family Weekend, director Benjamin Epps' family comedy that turns the genre upside down. Olesya Rulin stars as teenager Emily Smith-Dungy, a highly-motivated student who has had enough with her parents' (Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Modine) lack of support. With the help of her siblings (Eddie Hassell and Joey King), Emily takes her parents hostage to try and bring them all together again. Take a look at the latest footage and one-sheet for this unique comedy, in theaters March 29.
Family Weekend follows 16-year-old Emily Smith-Dungy (Olesya Rulin) an incredibly motivated overachiever, who has grown increasingly frustrated with her parents' lack of support and guidance. Her mom, Samantha (Kristin Chenoweth), is a career-focused, no-nonsense high powered business executive. Her dad, Duncan (Matthew Modine), is a happy go-lucky artist who can't be bothered to earn a paycheck. When they missed their daughter's big jump-roping competition, Emily hits her breaking point and takes it upon herself to restore order in the home. With the help of her siblings, they unite and take their parents hostage in hopes to become a "family" again.
Family Weekend was released March 29th, 2013 and stars Kristin Chenoweth, Matthew Modine, Olesya Rulin, Joey King, Shirley Jones, Eddie Hassell, Chloe Bridges, Adam Saunders. The film is directed by Benjamin Epps.
