Here we go again, ostensibly for the last time, and if this doesn't capture the magic of the first Hangover it's at least less offensive than the second, which isn't much of a recommendation. An intervention over Alan's mental health and the hunt for Mr Chow is what sets in motion the Wtf escapades and male bonding this time, but it all feels a little forced and familiar. If anything, the "wolf pack" is now too tame.

Los Angeles, May 23: Actress Katherine Heigl, who moved with her family to Utah, is leading a non-glamorous life, but she is enjoying it.
"Our house is in the mountains where I can enjoy being a mother and wife. Our dogs love roaming - every time I try to leave they bark and jump on me," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.
"Everything is much easier. I'm happy arranging barbecues with neighbours and drinking homemade beer. It's not glamorous but it's good," she added.

While the Promenade de la Croisette is bustling with critics and filmmakers soaking up the sun there is an abundance of future films being shopped around, and some of the promotional artwork is on show for all to see.
Our man Craig Skinner has just sent these images from the merry-go-round of marketing and there are some first look images at some well-known (and some more obscure) movie projects we’ve got to look forward to.
Elsewhere there are appearances from Arnie, Clive Owen has two new projects showing a bit of ankle here, The Last Knights with Morgan Freeman and a new project called Survivors in which he co-stars with Katherine Heigl.

In a frantic run-up to the annual film market, a cloudburst of English-language movies has swept onto the international stage.
“It’s nightmarish, amazing. This is going to be one of the busiest Cannes ever,” said Ivan Boeing of Brazilian distributor Imagem.
Martin Moszkowicz, at Germany’s Constantin, agrees that last year was robust but this year is even more so.
“There’s a huge number of projects being offered. We’ve gotten well over 200 projects over the last two or three weeks,” he said.
But he cautioned that two-thirds of projects received weren’t ready to come on to the market because they didn’t have a finished screenplay, or a director or cast fully attached.
And without these elements, there’s no guarantee they will happen.
“For the last year or two, studios have been offloading films like ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones,’ ‘American Hustle,’ ‘Solace’ and ‘The »

To celebrate the release of The Big Wedding (in cinemas May 29th) HeyUGuys are giving three lucky readers the chance to win a bumper DVD prize pack which includes Magic Mike, Friend’s With Kids, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, Dirty Dancing and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
With an all-star cast led by Robert DeNiro (Meet the Fockers, Analyze That), Katherine Heigl (27 Dresses), Diane Keaton (Morning Glory, Annie Hall), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia) and Topher Grace (In Good Company), with Susan Sarandon (Shall We Dance) and Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting), The Big Wedding is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco.
To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to »
If you're someone who despises shelter dogs and feels that they should all be destroyed, perhaps you should watch Shelter Me to see if you feel differently. Hosted by Katherine Heigl and funded by Ellen Degeneres’s Halo, Shelter is a rather single-minded appeal to get you to adopt a dog (a fact celebrated in a New York Times pull quote on the back of the box). A noble goal, if not necessarily compelling drama. At its worst, Shelter Me plays like an exceptionally dry infomercial; at its best, it’s an excuse to look at a bunch of cute dogs.

Though she once played Steven Seagal’s daughter in Under Siege 2, Katherine Heigl is not the first name you think of when you consider action thrillers. Still, that hasn’t stopped her signing on to Nu Image/Millennium Films’ The Survivor opposite Clive Owen.V For Vendetta/The Raven’s James McTeigue is directing the movie, which finds Heigl as an American State Department employee arriving in London to take a post at the Us Embassy.When the rest of her team is killed in a bomb blast, she has to go on the run for her life and clear her name when she’s framed for crimes she did not commit. Owen’s role isn’t specified in Screen Daily’s story on the film, but chances are he’ll end up helping her out as she tries to prevent a huge attack planned for New Year’s Eve (and no, »
Katherine Heigl hasn't always been her own best advocate. A lead role in Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" is mostly remembered by the fallout that came when she complained about the supposed sexist elements of the hit film. Then there's the saga with "Gray's Anatomy," with the actress battling with the creatives on the show and even withdrawing her name from Emmy contention one year because she didn't feel the material was up to snuff. While one could scoff at the irony of someone who went on star in movies like "27 Dresses" and "The Ugly Truth," Heigl had the last laugh because they were hits. And then suddenly, her choices were no longer so sound. "Killers," "One For The Money" and "The Big Wedding" were all bombs, with the Apatow-clone "Life As We Know It" as the lone outlier, a modest hit that you still probably forgot existed. So perhaps »

Although he hasn’t lived up to his debut V For Vendetta, director James McTeigue keeps getting second (and third and now fourth) chances with Ninja Assassin and last year’s The Raven. He’s now lined up his next project, and according to Screen Daily, the odd pair of Clive Owen and Katherine Heigl have joined the action thriller [...] »

I don’t know about you, but this just isn’t a match made in heaven. Clive Owen, though still underrated generally, is one of the better actors working today. In the right role, he’s been outstanding, and he’s usually pretty incredible in mediocre ones. Now he’s paired up with Katherine Heigl? I’m not that fond of him pairing up with James McTeigue after the last couple of curious efforts.
Can we take Heigl seriously in a role like this?

Veteran actor and all around badass Clive Owen (Sin City, Children Of Men) is set to co-star opposite Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, The Ugly Truth) in Survivor for director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta, The Raven).
The film follows a State Department employee (Heigl) working at the American Embassy in London who loses her team in a bombing attack. After she is framed for a series of crimes for which she is innocent, she embarks on a desperate journey to clear her name and prevent an attack on New Year’s Eve. Production company Nu Image will present the film to prospective financiers at the Cannes Film Festival. Legendary producer/director Irwin Winkler (Rocky, Goodfellas) will produce the project.
Something about the pairing of Clive Owen and Katherine Heigl is very bothersome to me. In her relatively short career, Heigl’s reputation as something of an unappreciative and arrogant diva precedes her. »

In The Guilt Trip, a grown man is about to embark on a road trip, but feels compelled to invite his mother along for the ride. Across 3,000 miles of adventure and antics they discover that while they have their differences, they also have more in common than they ever realized.
Available on Blu-ray and DVD now, just in time for Mother's Day on May 12th, we caught up with director Anne Fletcher and writer Dan Fogelman for a lively chat about this release starring Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand.
Director Anne Fletcher has made a name for herself with wildly popular films including Step Up with Channing Tatum, 27 Dresses with Katherine Heigl, The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds and now the laugh-out-loud comedy The Guilt Trip, starring the incomparable Barbra Streisand and funnyman Seth Rogen.
In total, her films have grossed over $600 million worldwide. »

Get ready for a brand new action thriller titled Survivor! The whole thing comes from V for Vendetta helmer James McTeigue, but what definitely sounds great is that Clive Owen and Katherine Heigl are set to lead us through a pretty intense story which includes a conspiracy theory, bombs and a fugitive from the law… McTeigue will direct while Irwin Winkler and Millennium films are set to produce the movie which will reportedly revolve around: …an American woman working in London for the U.S. State Department. When her offices are bombed, she, the lone survivor, finds herself caught up in a conspiratorial plot, leading to...

• Since his Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for Silver Linings Playbook, Robert De Niro has been on a bit of a career upswing. He’s set to star in Syriana-director Stephen Gaghan’s Candy Store about an undercover agent-turned-Brooklyn cop and the seedy underworld that he and his partners uncover. Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Omar Sy (The Intouchables) also star. De Niro is currently filming David O. Russell’s American Hustle. [Variety]

What is Casting Couch? Today, it’s pondering the inevitability of all Christopher Nolan-related casting while readying some sweet margaritas for the weekend. Please contain your shock as we pass on news that Michael Caine will join Christopher Nolan for a sixth outing, as the veteran actor has now signed on for a role in the director’s upcoming and already tremendously anticipated Interstellar. It’s currently unknown what role Caine will play in the sci-fi feature, so there’s scarce little for us to write here beyond the usual “he will be great,” “it will be great,” “they will be great.” Great stuff. [Deadline, via ComingSoon] Fine, fine, we’ll also throw you another Interstellar bone to make up for our lack of knowledge. Deadline (via ComingSoon) also reports that Jessica Chastain is lining up to join the new feature as well. Chastain is in talks to play the “third lead” in the film, next »

Two new films, The Big Wedding and The Way, Way Back, come at the friction of family life in different ways – but only one of them handles the generation gap with maturity
This is a detail from the poster for The Big Wedding, a family comedy that came out in the Us last Friday and is released in the UK at the end of the month (click the magnifying glass for the whole thing).
Chances are that at least two people up there are some of the stars you cherish dearest, so I'll try not to dwell, but the fact is that The Big Wedding has not gone down well in the States. It currently has a 6% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes (though, on the upside, 93% of their readers still want to see it).
Its flaws are, curiously, somehow distilled on the poster. Watching it, you sense some sort of disconnect between the cast, »

Last night’s flashback-tastic New Girl episode, “Virgins,” was a treasure trove of music to set the mood — some songs more successfully than others — as the loftmates looked back on their first sexual encounters. Anchoring the eclectic mix (which ranged from Sublime to Boyz II Men and even figured in Lisa Loeb), Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen” kicked in during a fan-fulfilling scene between Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel).
It got us thinking of some of our favorite first-time anthems from shows of yore. Below, our ultimate Spotify playlist of coupling tracks!
The song: Ellie Goulding, »
