Adam Sandler Walks In Your Shoes In New Trailer For The Cobbler

18 February 2015 2:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Image Entertainment has dropped a new trailer for Adam Sandler’s next movie, The Cobbler. Directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor, The Station Agent), the film revolves around a lonely shoesmith named Max Simkin, who one day finds himself endowed with a mysterious gift.

Keeping in line with his profession, the film quaintly expands on the mantra ‘walking in someone else’s shoes.’ As a shoe repair man whose business has been in the family for generations, when Simkin stumbles across a magical item, he finds himself able to slip on another person’s shoes and actually become them. What’s not explained through this fantasy plotting, is what actually happens to the real person who owns the shoes. Sandler isn’t really becoming them is he? He’s just himself – in their bodies, right?

Regardless of the details, the second trailer delves into a few elements missed in the original preview. »

'The Cobbler' Trailer: Adam Sandler Steps Into A New Life

18 February 2015 11:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Never judge a movie by it's premise. While The Cobbler may sound like a goofy lowbrow comedy in-line with some of Adam Sandler's lesser-liked efforts, it actually provides a more dramatic turn for the actor, and is coming from acclaimed director Thomas McCarthy, the man responsible for such critical favorites as The Visitor and The Station Agent. Image Entertainment has released a new trailer for The Cobbler. Maybe it will change your mind about what the film actually is, or isn't.

The story follows Max Simkin (Adam Sandler), who repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way.

Steve Coogan is ‘soft and happy’ in Showtime’s ‘Happyish’ teaser

10 February 2015 12:48 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In a role that once belonged to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Showtime series Happyish stars Steve Coogan as a man grappling with the pursuit of happiness in a mid-life crisis following his birthday. The comedy also stars Kathryn Hahn, Ellen Barkin, and Bradley Whitford. Here’s the full plot description via IMDb.

On his birthday, Thom Payne gets the gift of insignificance and also a new boss. He suspects his Ed pills are interfering with his anti-depressants, leaving him with neither happiness nor… happiness. In a culture that reveres youth – a culture he helped create – Thom needs to figure out what his purpose is now that he’s halfway to death and nobody cares what he thinks. Because in a world where any Kardashian is trending up, perhaps the wise among us would heartily embrace trending down.

Happyish debuts April Sunday, April 26 at 9:30 Et on Showtime. Watch »

Watch: Trailer For Former Philip Seymour Hoffman Show 'Happyish' Now Starring Steve Coogan

9 February 2015 11:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You have to feel a little bit for Steve Coogan, who will face, in every review and interview for the upcoming Showtime series "Happyish," a comparison to Philip Seymour Hoffman. The late actor was attached to star in the series before his tragic death last year, and after a pause, the network decided to press on, swapping in Coogan for Hoffman. But credit to Coogan for clearly making the role his own. The first trailer for "Happyish" is here and Coogan fits the role of an uncomfortably, unhappy middle-aged man quite perfectly. Co-starring Kathryn Hahn, Bradley Whitford, Ellen Barkin, Carrie Preston, Molly Price, and Andre Royo, the show centers on a mid-40s man whose career is thrown for a loop when he gets a new, much younger, social media savvy boss. Coogan has a bit of a Woody Allen thing going on, but with just enough of his own »

Watch: First Look at Showtime’s ‘Happyish’

9 February 2015 9:27 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime has released a teaser for its new comedy, “Happyish,” premiering Sunday, April 26, at 9:30 p.m. The comedy stars Steve Coogan, Kathryn Hahn and Bradley Whitford, with guest stars including Ellen Barkin, Carrie Preston, Molly Price and Andre Royo.

In the half-hour series Coogan plays Thom Payne, a 44-year-old man whose world is thrown into disarray when his 25 year-old wunderkind boss arrives, saying things like “digital,” “social” and “viral.” Is he in need of a “rebranding,” or does he just have a “low joy ceiling?” Maybe pursuing happiness is a fool’s errand? Maybe, after 44 years on this ludicrous planet, settling for “happyish” is the best one can expect.

The series was created, written and executive produced by Shalom Auslander, with Ken Kwapis exec producing and directing the pilot. Kwapis’ producing partner Alexandra Beattie will serve as co-executive producer through their In Cahoots banner.

The series was originally set »

So False! Ellen Barkin Is Not Engaged to Amal Clooney's Co-Worker Ben Emmerson Despite Reports

4 February 2015 11:14 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Despite recent reports to the contrary, Ellen Barkin is not engaged to Amal Clooney's co-worker, British barrister Ben Emmerson. There's been speculation swirling that the two, who reportedly met at George Clooney's star-studded wedding last September, are set to get hitched themselves. However, a statement released to E! News says, "Mr. Emmerson is not engaged to Ellen Barkin." And while it's unclear whether the two are romantic, or even friends in any capacity, we do know that Barkin has been a longtime friend of Clooney's and was present at the Venice nuptials. The Sea of Love actress has been famously unlucky in love in the past, what with her two marriages ending »

Watch: Adam Sandler Fixes Shoes And Changes His Life In First Trailer For 'The Cobbler'

2 February 2015 5:58 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though the premise sounded Adam Sandler-esque through and through, we really had high hopes that with "The Station Agent" and "Win Win" director Thomas McCarthy behind the camera, "The Cobbler" might be a welcomed reprieve from the comic actor's usual schtick. We were wrong. A complete misfire and a total flop when it premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall (here's our review), you can now see for yourself how this thing turned out, with the first international trailer dropping today. Co-starring Method Man, Steve Buscemi, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, and Dustin Hoffman, the story follows a mild-mannered cobbler who discovers a magical stitching machine that allows him to inhabit the lives of people whose shoes he mends. This leads to romance, creepily stalking women, facing off against thugs, and though it's not mentioned in the trailer, a battle against gentrification. And yes, it's as messy as all of that sounds, »

Julianne Moore Says She Doesn’t Need a Memorial Service After MMI Salute

21 January 2015 4:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the heels of her second Golden Globe win and fifth Academy Award nomination, Julianne Moore, flanked by her husband and two children, sat back and soaked up the Museum of the Moving Image’s salute in her honor.

“You know when you’re young, you’ll pursue things without any knowledge of where they’ll lead, and not knowing how they’ll shape your life,” Moore professed to the crowd. “But because this is a retrospective, it’s forcing me to look back and consider what it was that led me here. A lot of it was luck, (and) it was almost certainly my interest in story.”

The 29th annual Mmi Salute served as a monument to her own story.

The event came at a time of change for the museum, which in 10 days will welcome Sony Pictures Classics founder and co-president Michael Barker into the co-chairman role previously assumed by Herbert S. »
