Kevin Hart Is The Best Man In ‘The Wedding Ringer’ Trailer

25 September 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The latest trailer for upcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer is now out to view and comes with a surprising amount of laughs. Starring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, it sees a best man for hire (Hart) who attends weddings to make the groom look better. His services are employed by Gad, who needs an entire entourage to fill out the roles of his groomsmen ready for his wedding in 2 weeks. Of course there are rules which include not becoming friends, but we’re sure such rules are there to be broken, as well as Gad learning a little about himself through this unreal experience.

Judging by the trailer, which hopefully isn’t all the best bits, this looks like a well balanced farce with enough funny lines and slapstick humour too. However, we’re also sure that the plot will develop in a very predictable way.

‘The Wedding Ringer’ Trailer: Josh Gad & Kevin Hart Fake A Friendship

25 September 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Doug (Josh Gad) has a dilemma: His wedding to Gretchen (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) is looming, but the nerdy guy has no best man. Enter Jimmy (Kevin Hart), owner of Best Man Inc, which provides just the deceptive service our hero needs. Can they pull it off — and maybe, just maybe, even become actual pals? Alan Ritchson, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers and Ken Howard star in The Wedding Ringer for director Jeremy Garelick, who co-wrote the script with Jay Lavender. Screen Gems opens the comedy January 16 for Martin Luther King Day weekend — the same holiday frame that Hart’s Ride Along dominated with a record-breaking opening this year.

Kevin Hart and Josh Gad team for laughs in new 'Wedding Ringer' trailer

25 September 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you could have any celebrity at your wedding, Kevin Hart would probably be toward the top of your wish list. The "Ride Along" star brings the party to life for "Frozen" co-star Josh Gad in "The Wedding Ringer" Hart plays Jimmy Callahan, an escort of sorts who offers his services as a fun-loving best man to grooms-to-be who lack social skills. When Harris (Gad) hires him, all sorts of shenanigans ensue, involving faked photos, "Goonies" lookalikes, extra testicles and flaming grannies. The latest trailer features a lot of footage not seen in the initial one.  Watch the trailer here: It also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Cloris Leachman, Jennifer Lewis, Mimi Rogers and Olivia Thirlby. "The Wedding Ringer" opens January 16, 2015.   »

Kevin Hart Screams in Hebrew in the New Trailer for 'The Wedding Ringer'

25 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seems like there is no stopping Kevin Hart. He already has three movies released this year, and he is in Top Five by Chris Rock, which comes out later this year after a very strong premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Then, in January, we get The Wedding Ringer. In typical January fashion, this looks like a freight train to the face, and I mean that in a bad way. Hart plays a man who hires himself out to be best man at guys' weddings because they have no actual friends. He is hired by Josh Gad to not only be his best man but to help him find all seven of his groomsmen. Now, I am just taking a stab in the dark here, but I am guessing Hart and Gad end up being best friends by the end. It seems like a radical idea, but I take risks, »

New Trailer For 'The Wedding Ringer'

25 September 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Screen Gems has released a brand trailer for "The Wedding Ringer" starring Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Cloris Leachman, Jenifer Lewis, Mimi Rogers, and Olivia Thirlby.

"The Wedding Ringer" is directed by Jeremy Garelick from a screenplay he wrote along with Jay Lavender.

The film follows Doug Harris (Josh Gad)a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

Check out the new trailer below.

Kevin Hart Is a Best Man for Hire in New The Wedding Ringer Trailer

25 September 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Pictures has released a new The Wedding Ringer trailer for director Jeremy Garelick’s upcoming comedy.  The story revolves around an introverted yet successful tech entrepreneur (Josh Gad) who hires the owner of The Best Man Inc. (Kevin Hart) to be the perfect best man, assemble fake groomsmen, and throw a killer wedding party.  The movie has a lot going for it—a promising comedic duo, a fun premise, and a heartfelt friendship story at its center—and this trailer is quite funny.  I imagine this will be a sizable hit in the empty January moviegoing landscape, and it’s certainly nice to see Lost alum Jorge Garcia onscreen again. Watch the new The Wedding Ringer trailer after the jump along with a few new images.  The film also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Olivia Thirlby, Cloris Leachman, Jenifer Lewis, and Mimi RogersThe Wedding Ringer opens in theaters on January 16, 2015.

Q&A: Queen Latifah Talks Adding Twists to Her Talkshow

15 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The second season of “The Queen Latifah Show” premieres on Monday with not only a new look, but with twists in store for guests and viewers. Queen Latifah talked to Variety about her motivations for hosting a talkshow, what audiences can expect from the new season, being a hip-hop kid at heart and her HBO biopic on Bessie Smith.

What originally inspired you to do a talkshow?

Honestly, a lot of people had come to me about doing a talkshow since everyone found out that Oprah was going off the air. Everybody was kind of rushing to fill that vacuum and we saw a lot of people have come and gone and tried, and I think you have to take your time. No one else is Oprah, there is only one Oprah and there is no such thing as the next Oprah. Oprah is still busy being Oprah. So I »

While Miss America hasn’t bred any headline-stealing celebrities recently, beauty pageants were once a place where future stars got their start. Oprah was Miss Black Tennessee; Halle Berry was Miss Ohio. Vanessa Williams made it all the way to the top, nabbing the Miss America title in 1984.

With Miss America’s 88th annual pageant airing Sunday on ABC at 9 p.m. Et, EW took a look at the most famous Oscar winners and television icons who once won crowns and sashes:

After immortalizing a joke in the cement at the Tcl Chinese Theatre — with an extra finger on his left hand — Mel Brooks was in his usual feisty form Tuesday night at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to kick off a 40th anniversary screening of “Young Frankenstein.”

Brooks, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr and producer Michael Gruskoff joined Leonard Maltin for a lively Q-and-a.

'Ok, Leonard – start the bullshit' – Mel Brooks following a standing ovation at the Academy—

Brooks told the Sro crowd that the screening of the first cut — which came in at two-and-a-half hours — didn’t go well but credited himself and editor John C. Howard with key adjustments for the final 105-minute version.

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier"

What's It About? Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America (Chris Evans) is still getting used to life in the 21st century, but before he gets too comfortable he's enlisted by S.H.I.E.L.D. to help stop another big bad. Captain American partners with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) for a lot of action and awesomeness in their mission to stop the Winter Soldier. Anthony Mackie co-stars as Falcon.

Why We're In: The "Avengers" series just keeps getting better and better. Plus, "Winter Soldier" gives us even more of Black Widow's bad-assery, proving once again that it's high time we get a stand-alone for this fantastic character.

24 August 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We know the red carpet can get pretty crowded during award show season. But at Saturday's Variety and Women in Film's Emmy Nominee Celebration, actress Julianna Margulies got quite the surprise when a fellow star (wearing slippers, we might add) practically ran into her. While posing for pictures, the 48-year-old Good Wife actress suddenly got photobombed by the legendary Cloris Leachman! Before a red carpet handler could grab the 88-year-old star, Leachman ultimately got quite the view of Margulies' backside before letting the Emmy-nominated star pose for pictures alone. By no surprise, Margulies laughed it off like a pro as she later hugged her new red carpet »

'Puss in Boots 2' and 'Croods 2' Get New Release Dates

21 August 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

DreamWorks Animation has made a few slight release date changes today, moving The Croods 2 from November 3, 2017 to December 22, 2017 while Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves shifts from November 2, 2018 to December 21, 2018.

The Croods 2 currently has its new December 22, 2017 date to itself, but it comes just two days after an untitled animated project from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Animation. If it would have stayed in its old November 3, 2017, it would have had to face an untitled Marvel Studios adventure. It should also be noted that 20th Century Fox's Avatar 3 is also slated to be released in December 2017, although an exact release date has not been given yet.

Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman are all set to reprise their voice roles from The Croods.
