One of this year’s pleasant surprises was the Joel Edgerton-written and directed Blumhouse thriller, The Gift. It was a film that shocked audiences with its restraint and ability to give genre fans a film with closer ties to Hitchcock than to the slash and dice genre films of today. Following a happily married couple played by Jason Bateman & Rebecca Hall, and “Gordo” (Edgerton) a stranger from the past of Bateman’s character, showing up to help reveal the true nature behind the supposedly friendly husband.
A very entertaining and intense story, the film was a breath of fresh air and for those who missed the film during its theatrical run: things are looking up, with the announcement of the character driven film heading to Digital HD/DVD/Bluray this October 27th, complete with quite a few special features to please supplemental junkies as well.

There’s always money in the banana stand, and that’s really going to help Jason Bateman in his next role.
The Arrested Development actor has signed on to exec-produce, direct and star in Ozark, a drama series currently being shopped to premium cable and digital outlets.
Though details of the hour-long project are being kept under wraps, our sister site Deadline reports that Ozark — which is set in Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks — focuses on the dark and dangerous world of drug-money laundering.
After a very impressive turn in The Gift, Arrested Development‘s Jason Bateman is set to return to the small screen as the director, star and executive producer of Ozark, a new hourlong series created by Bill Dubuque (The Judge). Unfortunately, plot details are being kept under wraps for the time being, but Deadline reveals that it takes place, “in the dark and dangerous world of drug-money laundering.” The series is named after the location it’s actually set in, the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.
Ozark is obviously going to be a big test for Bateman, especially as he’s taking on multiple roles behind the camera as well as obviously starring in front of it. There’s no word on who will be joining him in the series, but the actor is currently working with Dubuque to establish the creative vision for the show. It is of »

"We need more movies about dysfunctional families like we need more movies about the tortured inner lives of artists," begins Variety's Justin Chang, "which is all the more reason to be unexpectedly grateful for The Family Fang, a sharply drawn portrait of a dysfunctional, tortured artistic family that speaks affectingly to the troubled legacy that all parents inevitably bequeath to their children." Jason Bateman's followup to Bad Words stars himself, Nicole Kidman, Christopher Walken, Maryann Plunkett, Jason Butler Harner and Kathryn Hahn—and we're collecting reviews. » - David Hudson »

Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. »

After their top-secret wedding, Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston went on a romantic honeymoon ... with a group of their closest friends. While most people like to keep it 1-on-1 after celebrating their nuptials, Jen and Justin were joined in Bora Bora by buddies like Chelsea Handler, Jason Bateman, Courteney Cox and Jimmy Kimmel. It was definitely an interesting choice, but one Justin has a great explanation for. "We had thought about it; we could just do a normal honeymoon, or we could go with some friends, keep the party going, relax, and have fun. It was really special, it was really beautiful," Theroux tells Extra. "It was a fantastic honeymoon, so much fun" he adds. The "Leftovers" star also opened up about his wife possibly taking his name.

When it comes to March 2016, Disney’s release schedule may be concentrated on the superhero face-off that is Captain America: Civil War, but there is another project releasing from the other end of the movie spectrum. That is, Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s upcoming animation, Zootopia.
Also slated for debut in March of next year, the company’s all-new adventure imagines a world completely devoid of humans, allowing anthropomorphic animals to establish their own animal kingdoms, overseeing a lush version of planet Earth that exists in a state of harmony.
It’s not all butterflies and rainbows for Nick Wilde, however. Jason Bateman’s sly, quick-witted fox soon finds his life upended when he is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, forcing him to exit the titular metropolis and go out on the run. He’ll be pursued by Ginnifer Goodwin’s wonderfully named bunny enforcer, Judy Hops, »
