BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It seems insane that Tina Fey and Paul Rudd have never worked together on a film before, given how important each of them has been to pretty much all the good comedy that's come along in the last decade. At long last, in this Friday's Admission, Fey and Rudd team up in a classic rom-com conflict-- Fey as a Princeton admissions officer struggling to hold on to her controlled life in this rarefied world, and Rudd as the crunchy do-gooder who's aiming to shake her up even more
Nobody depicts dudes the way Green does, and making his way up from the nadir that was 2011's The Sitter, Green is back in fine and funny form with Prince Avalanche, a story about-- you guessed it-- two guys stuck together. This time they're on the verge of becoming brothers
Paul Rudd and Apatow's real-life wife Leslie Mann reprise their roles as this fiercely funny and frequently feuding pair. The film's first trailer gave us a hint to the marital mayhem the movie has to offer, and a behind-the-scenes clip offered a look at the return of Jason Segel's flirtatious physical trainer. Now the newly released clip delivers one of the couple's more intimate moments.
Judd Apatow's This is 40 could be one of the funniest commies of the holiday season-- or the most uncomfortably personal movie this side of, well, Apatow's last movie Funny People. The writer-director has always been known for drawing from his real life for his movies, but This is 40 probably crosses a new line
Judd Apatow is calling it the "sort-of-sequel to Knocked Up," but we're just calling it one of the easiest movies to look forward to at the end of this year. This Is 40, Apatow's first film since Funny People, is coming to theaters December 21, and now a new trailer has dropped over at Yahoo! Movies
After going big on his last few projects, director David Gordon Green recently, and secretly, shot a small comedy called Prince Avalanche. It was just last week we were discussing directors who should return to their pasts and with Green remaking Either Way, with Explosions in the Sky scoring, it sounds like he may have heeded our advice.
When talking about the best comedic stars of today, it's hard to find one that isn't in some way connected to David Wain. Thanks to his work on The State, Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models, The Ten and Wainey Days, the writer/director has worked with almost every single comedy star today, including Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd.
Described as the “sort-of sequel to Knocked Up,” the movie features the sort-of happily married couple Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann played in that comedy, only they are approaching the Big 4-0 and re-evaluating all of the decisions they made over the course of their relationship.
Grab your dog and a glass of Scotch, and toast to this classy bit of news. Nearly eight years after Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy hit theaters comes word that anchorman Ron Burgundy will return to the big screen for a sequel.
The plot description as provided by the Times reads a little differently, revealing that Rudd's character would be someone Fey knew in high school but never got to know, and that Rudd has been thinking about her all this time. That sounds even more complicated than the initial love triangle we learned about, but also way more fun to watch
This will mark the first time this pair of Pauls have shared the screen, and it's sure to be dynamic as each has shown to be a great comedic curmudgeon, Giamatti in Cold Souls and Rudd in Role Models. With Hawkins and her inherently charming personality on board, I can't help but wonder if the plot might spin in romantic direction not unlike the gigolo comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, wherein the two con artists fall for the same woman, and a hilarious rivalry ensues.
This all went down last night on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, where Wet Hot writer Michael Showalter, responding to a Twitter inquiry about a sequel, answered in the positive. “Absolutely, yes,” he said. “One hundred percent yes. The whole gang — everyone is back. We’re doing it.”
The spin-off of Judd Apatow's smash hit Knocked Up has not only secured an awards friendly December 21, 2012 release date but also has us eagerly anticipating the chance to catch up with the lovable characters a few years down the line. Here's our first look at Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and the Apatow offspring in This is Forty.
Freezing People is Easy is based on two sources: a memoir by Robert Nelson called We Froze the First Man and an episode of Ira Glass' popular radio show This American Life (Glass is also a producer on the movie). Both center on Nelson, a TV repairman who, back in the '60s, managed to stumble his way into being one of the preeminent people in the field of cryogenics/cryonics.
Sometimes I'll write up a trailer and say that it seems funny, despite the fact that it never actually made me laugh. That's just what happens when you're working home alone-- it's hard for something to be so funny that it actually makes you laugh out loud. But Wanderlust, the trailer for David Wain's new comedy that debuted today at Yahoo! Movies, actually got a solid guffaw out of me more than once
