You know you can tell a film is going to be quality when you see certain elements in a trailer. one of those elements, is, obviously, the titular line in the film. Thankfully, that’s exactly what we get in the very first trailer for WWE’s newest family heist comedy, The Chaperone, starring top wrestler Triple H.
This is Triple H’s (real name Paul Levesque) first film role since 2004’s Blade Trinity in which he played a muscled vampire henchman with a cute little dog. This role is slightly different than that.
In the film, Ray Bradstone (Triple H) is the best “wheel man in the business,” but he is determined to go straight and be the best parent he can be to his daughter, Sally (Winter), and make amends with his ex-wife, Lynne (Gish). As Ray struggles to find honest work, his old bank-robbing crew, led by Phillip Larue (Corrigan), offers him one last job.
He agrees at first, but changes his mind at the last second leaving the crew without a driver. Ray decides instead to serve as a “chaperone” for Sally’s school field trip. When the robbery goes awry, Larue blames Ray and chases the school bus all the way to the Museum of Natural History in New Orleans. Ray must deal with Larue, while supervising Sally’s class on what becomes one of the craziest school trips ever.
The film is set to go straight to DVD and Blu-Ray be distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films and will hit theaters on Friday, February 18. In the meantime, you can check out the first trailer for the flick after the jump.
