Exclusive: Bob Barker Packs a Punch in Happy Gilmore Homage on Bold and the Beautiful

1 hour ago | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

The price is wrong, bitch! Game show icon Bob Barker will spoof his classic fight scene from Happy Gilmore — the one where he beat the bejesus out of Adam Sandler — on the Thursday, Aug. 28 episode of CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful. The plot has bad boy Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) foolishly mouthing off about Barker's pet cause — pets! Not only does TV Guide Magazine have an exclusive video preview of the resulting smackdown (below), we also spoke to the 90-year-old Barker to get all the deets.

Wamg Interview: John Turturro – Writer, Director, and Star of Fading Gigolo

15 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Interview conducted by Tom Stockman August 14th, 2014

Despite his appearance and the roles you’ve often seen him in before, it turns out that actor John Turturro is one sexy stud! In Fading Gigolo he’s nothing like the nervous genius he played in Quiz Show, or the angry hothead from Do The Right Thing, or that weasel Bernie Bernbaum he played in Miller’S Crossing. No, in Fading Gigolo, which Turturro wrote, directed, and starred in, he played Fioravante, an honest-to-goodness gigolo whose eagerly-paying clientele include Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone! With Woody Allen as Murray, his unlikely pimp, Fading Gigolo sounds like the most oddball vanity project project to come down the pike in decades. But Fading Gigolo was a funny, gentle, and surprisingly sensitive comedy with a witty script, amusing characters and a jazzy sense of life in New York that felt like an old-fashioned Woody Allen movie, »

Oscar watch: First look at Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women and Children''

17 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As we can see in this newly released trailer for "Men, Women and Children" (watch below),  director/writer Jason Reitman is revisiting a topic he explored so successfully in "Juno" – teen angst. Now he layers on parental angst, too, as we watch two lost generations in search of human connection via text message, web hookups and other forms of digital connection. -Break- Paramount is giving this an Oscar-friendly release date of Oct. 3. Reitman's "Juno" scored admirably with academy voters, nabbing four nominations and one win (original screenplay) in 2007. His "Up in the Air" reaped six bids two years later. Both film were nominated for Best Picture and Director. "Men, Women and Children" is based on a novel by Chad Kultgen. Cast includes Ansel Elgort, Adam Sandler, Judy Greer, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, Dean Norris, Dennis Haysbert, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jk Simmons. Follow Gold Derby on&n...' »

Lionsgate Buys Opera-Themed Comedy ‘The Three Tenors’

19 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Lionsgate has bought The Three Tenors, an ensemble comedy spec by Johnny Rosenthal that will be produced by Patrick Aiello. Think A Night At The Opera meets Anchorman here as the comedy traces the rise and fall, and then another rise and fall and then rise, of a fictional trio of internationally beloved operatic superstars. This sounds pretty good; I always wondered why Adam Sandler never turned his Opera Man character into a feature.

Lionsgate’s President Erik Feig and senior creative exec Meredith Milton acquired the project and are overseeing for the studio. Rosenthal recently wrote Bad Santa 2 for Dimension and Iron Jack for Sony. Aiello just produced the Legendary Pictures/Universal thriller As Above So Below that will open August 28 and he is in production on director Kevin Reynolds’ first-century epic thriller Clavius, which stars Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton. Rosenthal is repped by Paradigm, Apostle and attorney Jeff Frankel. »

First trailer for Jason Reitman's Men, Women And Children

19 August 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Adam Sandler goes serious and bearded in Jason Reitman's new film, Men, Women And Children...

Jason Reitman's latest movie, Labor Day, may not have quite hit the mark in the way some of the director's more recent fare has (it did feature some fine pie, though), but his next film perhaps holds more promise. Men, Women And Children is an adaptation of Chad Kultgen's book, and Reitman has assembled quite a cast for his movie take on it.

As such, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, Emma Thompson, Adam Sandler and J K Simmons line up for this one, and we've got both a synopsis and first trailer for the film. So let's do them in order, synopsis first...

‘Men, Women & Children’ Trailer: Just Everyone Stop Texting, Okay?

19 August 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Does Jason Reitman hate texting? From the looks of the first trailer for his Men, Women & Children, that definitely seems to be the case. Reitman’s latest is all about the secrets we keep online and that threaten to leak into the real world — which makes it kind of weird that the film’s marketing is encouraging fans to use the Whisper app to share their secrets, because that sure seems like something that’s pushing precisely what the film is against – with everyone constantly staring at their phones and looking shocked. Not a fan of films that use cute graphics to share texts, emails and pix on the big screen? Oh, you’re going to hate this one. Reitman’s film centers on a loosely connected group of students and their families, though it appears that they are all linked by their mutual sadness and disconnection. Put down your phones.

Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler and Ansel Elgort star in the new dramatic flick, "Men, Women & Children," and we're finally getting our first look at the intense movie. Check out the teaser above! The drama will look at different "sexual frustrations" people of all ages are dealing with in today's society, which have seemingly been enhanced by modern forms of communication.From the internet, to text messaging and photo sharing tools, these networks -- which are supposed to bring us closer together -- seem to be pushing us further apart.

"I think it tells a really important story that hasn't been told yet — the world has changed so much in these past few »

“Men, Women & Children”: Jason Reitman and Adam Sandler return to the Oscar race

19 August 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Earlier today, a teaser trailer dropped for Jason Reitman’s new film, the dark dramedy Men, Women & Children. Based on the book of the same name by Chad Kultgen (which I love), it’s a look at how technology and the internet/social media has changed how we interact with each other, especially when it comes to intimate relations. A chronicle of how this affects both adults and teenagers, it’s some potentially serious stuff. The novel is a pitch black comedy and Reitman has experience in that realm, so if he’s faithfully adapted this work, I think he’s going to be back in the awards race. It might be a little much for Oscar voters to give any wins to, but I think we have another player this season. At the end of this post you can see the trailer in order to understand what I’m talking about, »

Jason Reitman’s ‘Men, Women & Children’ Pacts With Secret-Spiller Whisper

19 August 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for Jason Reitman‘s Labor Day follow-up Men, Women & Children, launching a campaign tailored to digital-age moviegoers. Adapted by Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson from the Chad Kultgen novel, the ensemble drama stars Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, and Adam Sandler as a group of high schoolers and their parents navigating life, love, and relationships in the age of social media and online obsession. The complexities of living in a plugged-in world ruled by texts, emails, and the ubiquitous Internet are underscored in the unusual dialogue-free trailer told through devices and pop-up convos (watch it below).

Men, Women & Children world premieres next month at the Toronto International Film Festival, though an official release date has yet to be confirmed by Paramount. The studio took Reitman’s Labor Day to Telluride and Toronto last year before opening it over the Christmas holiday. »

Depressing Trailer for Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children

19 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A teaser trailer has been released for Jason Reitman's upcoming drama Men, Woman & Children, and it looks quite depressing. I think Reitman is a fantastically talented storyteller and filmmaker, and there's no doubt in my mind that this movie is going to be done extremely well, it just deals with some heavy subject matter. This looks like it will be his darkest film yet. 

The movie is based on a book by Chad Kultgen, and it explores the "sexual pressures of junior high school students and their parents navigating the internet’s shared landscape of pornography, blogs, social networking, and its promise of opportunities, escapes, reinvented identities, and unexpected conflicts."

The movie will be released later this year, and I'll definitely be watching it. It also has a fantastic ensemble cast includes Ansel Elgort, Adam Sandler, Judy Greer, Jennifer Garner, Kaitlyn Dever, Dennis Haysbert, J.K. Simmons, and Rosemarie DeWitt. »

Ansel Elgort and Adam Sandler Are Misbehaving in Jason Reitman's New Movie

19 August 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Rosemarie DeWitt is cheating on Adam Sandler, Adam Sandler is searching for escorts in his area, Ansel Elgort is getting into fistfights, and Jennifer Garner is just plain lonely in the trailer for Jason Reitman's upcoming drama, Men, Women & Children. The movie boasts an impressive cast, yet no one actually speaks in this footage. Instead, the story is told through text messages, IMs, and emails. It's clear the message that Reitman is trying to get across, and he even says it at the end: "Discover how little you know . . . about the people you know." I'm looking forward to seeing more about the plot from the movie, and I'm especially curious about Elgort's storyline. Who is he looking at in the pictures online? Why is he crying? The film is out Oct. 3; check out the trailer below. Front Page Image Source: Paramount Pictures »

Watch The Somber First Trailer For Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children

19 August 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jason Reitman clearly has something to say about our society’s technology addiction. The concept of on-screen identities overtaking off-screen lives has been explored in films like Disconnect and Her, but that the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Up in the Air is the one shaping those ideas in this fall’s Men, Women & Children is certainly cause for excitement.

Today, the first trailer for the dramedy has arrived, revealing a serious and extremely modern take on technology overload. Though there isn’t much by way of plot (and no dialogue whatsoever), the preview is still an intriguing first look which highlights Reitman’s terrific cast.

Emma Thompson, Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Dean Norris, J.K. Simmons, Dennis Haysbert and Elena Kampouris all star in Men, Women & Children, which is said to focus specifically on how relationships between parents and their children have been altered by technology. »

Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort turn to the web in 'Men, Women & Children'

19 August 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Adam Sandler has said he chooses movies based on where he’d like to vacation—Blended took him to South Africa, 50 First Dates to Hawaii. But his latest movie, the dark Men, Women & Children, looks like anything but a vacation.

The film, directed by Up in the Air filmmaker Jason Reitman, centers around a group of individuals who gravitate toward the internet and all it offers, resulting in isolation and sadness. Sandler’s character browses escort websites when he’s not spending time with his also-lonely partner, played by Rosemarie DeWitt. Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, and Jennifer Garner also star. »
