Bad Words Bad Words is a movie about a grown man who finds a loophole in a national spelling bee competition. Let.s just get that out of the way, first, because any man childish enough to dash the hopes of a slew of young children is obviously going to be some sort of a graceless jerk. In this case Jason Bateman plays the jerk, a man named Guy Trilby who has enough time on his hands to participate in a slew of spelling challenges leading him all the way to the big Bee. He.s not alone in the challenge. Guy is accompanied by a reporter during his lengthy quest. Her name Jenny (Kathryn Hahn), and she.s the sort of unharried type of woman who gets to a good story even if the person she is interviewing is Sir Clam-up-a-Lot. Hahn and Bateman are both very convincing in »

On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts. Why? Art needs no reason.
First, the criteria. The Hogwarts houses are divided based on traits: Slytherins are cunning, »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Lake Placid An otherwise quiet lake in New England becomes a hub of bloody activity when a giant crocodile makes itself known by biting a diver in half. The local sheriff (Brendan Gleeson) calls in wildlife officials including Bill Pullman, and the pair are soon joined by academics Bridget Fonda and Oliver Platt. Together they work to capture or kill the beast, but the croc has other ideas. Steve Miner’s film belongs on the same shelf as Tremors as a terrific horror comedy that balances the laughs and the monster mayhem to near perfection. The cast is stellar across the board with spectacularly fun performances from Platt and Gleeson in particular. Betty White’s foul-mouthed turn is still a lot of fun too. The effects, a mix of practical and CGI, work »

Jason Bateman is a familiar presence on the big and small screens, which makes sense, since his acting debut, on Little House on the Prairie, came in 1981, when he was just 12 years old. As a director, though, he’s just getting started: Bad Words is the first film with Bateman in the director’s chair. (He also stars in the film). “The first time that I was exposed to what the directing process can look like and feel like was on pretty much my first gig, Little House on the Prairie. I’d watch Michael Landon do what he did [directing … Continue reading →

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky's vision for a "Dune" movie was beyond remarkable; it was truly epic. Pink Floyd, H. R. Giger, and Mick Jagger were just a few of the names attached to the film - until it imploded. This is a documentary about a sci-fi film that was ahead of its time and the visionary behind it.
Why We're In: Tons of interviews, behind-the-scenes details, storyboards, and more make this a must-see for art house, midnight movie, and film history fiends.

What's It About? Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson star in this cool crime drama about a thief who's out for revenge on the dude who double-crossed him. Mel Gibson's "Payback" was based on the same novel, "The Hunter" by Donald E. Westlake, but that shouldn't deter you. »

Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in Horrible Bosses 2. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.
Following on from the arrival of the first trailer last week [which you can watch here], Warner Bros. has now debuted two new stills from the upcoming comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2, which feature the two new antagonists in Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) and Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness)…

The film, set for release on November 26, is the sequel to the 2011 comedy starring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey and all are back along with the addition of Waltz and Pine. This time around, fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business, but a slick investor (Waltz) soon pulls the rug out from under them.

“Transformers: Age of Extinction” is far from extinct in its second weekend, bringing some heat to a less-than-explosive Fourth of July box office.
The fourth installment of Paramount’s ever-growing franchise is the only release so far this summer to come in no. 1 in the box office for two weeks straight. The lack of a reigning summer champ is partly to blame for the nearly 15% drop in earnings from last summer.
The traditionally busy holiday weekend was also less explosive than last year’s Independence Day, which brought in $230 million thanks to the $143 million launch of “Despicable Me 2.” “The Lone Ranger” flopped with $48 million. However, last year’s movies benefited from the Fourth falling on a Thursday, meaning audiences were free to go to the movies on Friday.
Last weekend, “Transformers” became the first »

Whether or not any of us were asking for a sequel to 2011′s comedy hit Horrible Bosses, Warner Bros. will be bringing us one anyway later this year with Horrible Bosses 2. This time around, Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) have grown sick and tired of answering to evil higher-ups. So, they decide to start their own company, but that arrangement goes sour when they’re conned out of it by a slick investor (Christoph Waltz). Searching for a way back in, the trio hatch a hare-brained plot to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine), only to find themselves in way over their heads.
The first trailer for the film promised some hilarious interplay between the three leads, but it didn’t really focus on the villains of the sequel. Now, two new images (one above, one below) have arrived online, highlighting Waltz and Pine’s characters. »

Just a couple of days after New Line released the trailer, we're getting a couple of Horrible Bosses 2 images from the sequel directed by Sean Anders (That’s My Boy). This time we're treated to a more detailed view of the film's new villains Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine. I actually like the original film, so I could go for another round of Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis trying to channel their inner sociopaths. When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) takes over, “the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company.” Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey also return in for more on November 26th.

The post Horrible Bosses 2 is Coming to Theaters This November appeared first on Shockya.com. »
In the new tradition of giving mildly to wildly successful original Hollywood comedies a sequel (Hangover, 22 Jump Street, Think Like a Man Too), we of course are getting a sequel to Seth Gordon’s Horrible Bosses, starring Charlie Day, Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis, a film about three guys who hated their bosses and decided they want to try and murder them.
Well, the trailer for Horrible Bosses 2 has arrived, and thankfully it looks pretty great in that dumb comedy sort of way. The main cast, including Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Aniston (who was surprisingly fantastic in the original and from the looks of this will continue that hot streak) is all returning, along with newcomers Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz, the latter of whom would make for a great Horrible Boss (although he only momentarily shows up in the trailer).
The difference this time around is »

The great thing about this Horrible Bosses 2 teaser is that it doesn’t tell you anything about the movie at all. It exists only to raise questions, show off some impressive physical comedy and to put dirty words in Jennifer Aniston‘s mouth. Familiar faces are flashed, and we learn that Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman are back to perpetrate a kidnapping. But why? They wanted to murder their bosses in the first film because they were awful. Now, their criminal path isn’t so clear. Yet, Aniston’s character’s proclivities are back in full force. See for yourself: It’s good to see the old gang back in slow motion status, but Sean Anders (Sex Drive, That’s My Boy) has taken over the helm from Seth Gordon. Granted, their comic sensibilities aren’t exactly alien, and the trailer makes it look like they’ve captured the low stakes magic again. Watching »
