Teaser trailer for The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco

James Franco and Seth Rogen are the peanut butter and jelly of the film world; they just work so well together. And their dynamic duo-ness holds up strong in the first teaser for their upcoming and undoubtably hilarious come...

First trailer and poster for Birdman with Michael Keaton

Birdman might not be the Birdman movie we've all always needed, but damn if it doesn't look like the Birdman movie we deserve. A surreal comedy about a washed up action hero trying to mount a Broadway comeback that star...

First official trailer for Dumb and Dumber To

Dumb and Dumber To has been a long time coming. So long, in fact, it doesn't even fit in with Hollywood's current comedic mindset. While this first trailer for the long in development hell sequel isn't perfect by any means (...

New trailer and poster for Mad Men creator's Are You Here

Are You Here marks Matthew Weiner's (the creator of popular TV show Mad Men) film directorial debut. And apparently it's a bit of a doozy. Are You Here has a pretty big-name cast, including Zack Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and...

New clip for Obvious Child involves drunk-dialing ex-boyfriends

In this new clip for Obvious Child staring Jenny Slate, the main character Donna gets to do something most jilted women (including myself) have either done or rreeeeaaaallly wanted to do: drunk dial the guy that just broke u...

Review: A Million Ways to Die in the West

Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut, Ted, was a welcome surprise. It was a mix of a charming friendship, un-ironic love of the 80s, and gratuitous amount of raunchy humor. Like the best episodes of MacFarlane's Family Guy, it...

H. Jon Benjamin voiced HAL 9000 and it's the best thing

As part of the late night show, Last Night Basement, H. Jon Benjamin (Bob's Burgers, Archer, other good things) dubbed over a bit of HAL 9000's (from 2001: A Space Odyssey)  voice. Turns out it's something I've wanted all along.  [Last Night Basement, via io9]

Review: Blended

Blended is Drew Barrymore and Adama Sandler's third movie together after The Wedding Singer and  50 First Dates. Evidently that's a thing now. Like they make a romantic comedy of sorts with each other every ten...

Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways To Die In The West has an 8-bit game you can play

A Million Ways To Die In The West, Seth MacFarlane's upcoming Western comedy movie, now has an 8-bit videogame counterpart online at Adult Swim. Perhaps capitalizing on the nostalgically easy-to-die-in games of the 80's 8-bit...

See Blended early and free

Ready to see Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore back on screen together despite the fact that their careers have trended towards worse and worse films? Yea, me neither. But maybe they're reuniting can spark some of the old magic...

Review: Don Peyote

Whenever someone mentions Dan Fogler, I'm suddenly interested. He's a comedic dynamo who always seems to choose interesting or niche projects. Directing his second film since 2009, Fogler displays acting ability that he reall...

Flix for Short: Johnny Express

The year is 2150. Johnny is a great delivery man. He is however, incredibly lazy. All Johnny wants is to sleep in his automated space delivery ship. All he has to do is deliver the packages he's sent. However, his deliveries...

Review: Chef

Before attending this year's SXSW, I had no idea Jon Favreau's Chef even existed. Given the nature of my job (as I constantly write about films months, and even years before their official release), it's rare that film goes u...

Review: Neighbors

I had completely written off Neighbors. Coming off of Seth Rogen's last starring role in This is the End, the first trailer for Neighbors underwhelmed me. I've gotten used to Rogen acting, writing, and directing his own films...

First trailer for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Badad Day

At some point in my past I'm pretty sure I read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day because I'm pretty sure every child on earth has to in order to grow up, but damned if I remember it. So I have...

New international trailer for 22 Jump Street

Second trailer for Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy

I really, really want to love this trailer for Tammy, but I can't find it in my heart to do so. It's got everything I'm supposed to love: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, PIE, but I've just been let down by McC...

Review: The Other Woman

The Other Woman is a raunchy comedy that wants to be taken emotionally seriously while promoting the fact that woman are awesome and can easily take the lead in any kind of film. It basically wants to be Bridesmaids, but...

First trailer for Ping Pong Summer

By the looks of this first official trailer for Michael Tully's Ping Pong Summer, we're going to get a critical, yet loving look at 80s sports films. Or even 80s films in general. Taking place in 1985, a kid named Rad Miracl...

The Grand Seduction gets its first trailer

I'm a big fan of Taylor Kitsch and of charming comedies so putting the two together gets a big thumbs up from me. That's the gist of The Grand Seduction, which finds Kitsch as a doctor who comes to a small town for a month, ...

First trailer for Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate

Obvious Child is one of the films I regret missing out on during SXSW. It stars Jenny Slate, in her first starring role (though she's played numerous, fabulous supporting roles), as a comedienne who's life takes an unexpecte...
