Coming by way of Universal, the studio today released a new clip for the uproarious comedy, and it’s clear that Fey and Poehler’s latest collaboration is being angled in a similar vein to Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect. Indeed, Jason Moore, director of the latter feature film, is on board to direct Sisters, which has the two actresses star as a pair of disconnected siblings who come together upon learning of their parents’ decision to sell the family home.
Struggling to come to terms with the loss of their childhood abode, Fey and Poehler deem that there’s only one thing that’ll serve as an adequate send-off: an epic party. And so, the remainder of the »

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for "Sisters," a new film from "Pitch Perfect" director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need.

A brand new trailer for the upcoming comedy Sisters, which stars Amy Poehler and Tiny Fey has just been released by the folks over at Universal. The film comes from Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore, from a screenplay by Paula Pell.
The film is about two disconnected sisters who are summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need.
Sisters opens in UK cinemas on December 12th, and the Us on December 18th, which puts it right up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Clever bit of placement by Universal?

Aside from George Lucas, one of the most important figures in the legacy of Star Wars is arguably Lawrence Kasdan. The filmmaker made his screenwriting debut on 1980's Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, co-writing the script with Leigh Brackett, and he returned to co-write Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi with George Lucas himself. More than 30 years later, he returned to co-write Star Wars: The Force Awakens with J.J. Abrams, and he is also writing the Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo Movie with his son Jon Kasdan, which is set for release on May 25, 2018. During a new interview with the German newspaper Bild (translated by The Supernaughts), the writer revealed that the Han Solo Movie will be his last Star Wars film.
"This is my last film for this saga. I did not even want to do this last one anymore, but my family loved the idea. »
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are reteaming on the big screen for December's Sisters, in which they, yes, play sisters. We had the chance to visit the set of the comedy last Summer and chatted with the stars of the movie on the New York set. Of course Fey and Poehler talked about how much they like working together, the way that they already feel like sisters, and the funny attributes they wanted to give their characters. Popsugar: You two are playing sisters here, and obviously have a history together, so does that make playing sisters easier? Tina Fey: I think our shorthand that we have with each other makes it easier. Neither of us has a sister; we both have brothers. We had this scene the other day where we had to get in the bath together and we were asking people "would you get in the bathtub naked with your sister? »

These rodents got some mighty big nuts! Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Road Chip is crashing into theaters a little early this Christmas! Alvin, Simon and Theodore are very pleased to now be opening on December 18th, 2015. When asked if it concerned them their Road Chip adventure was opening on the same weekend as a certain other giant mega movie, Alvin simply responded, "Do or do not. There is no try." No one was quite sure what he meant.
"What other giant blockbuster is opening on December 18th?" You're probably asking, only if you live under a rock or on a small desert island without an Internet or phone connection. On this date, Disney and Lucasfilm will be unleashing the first Star Wars sequel in over ten years, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens expected to break every box office record known to man, and may even create ones »
Though it’s a harder film festival to regulate and therefore tabulate a comprehensively genuine list reflecting the totality of the fest’s offering per any individual’s perspective, the Toronto Film Festival manages to be a healthy platform for new and developing voices for those willing to sift through the multitude of titles. Of course, many new exciting voices were present that debuted at earlier film festivals, like Berlin, Sundance, and Cannes. From Guy Maddin’s co-director Evan Johnson on The Forbidden Room and Josh Mond’s stunning debut James White out of Sundance, to notable Cannes berths like Laszlo Nemes of Son of Saul, Deniz Gamz Erguven of Mustang, and Thomas Bidegain’s Les Cowboys, 2015 brought a wide variety of new filmmakers to light. In deliberating the Top Ten New Voices out of Tiff, we focused on offerings either unique to the festival or near concurrent premieres with Locarno and Venice. »

Your Friends & Neighbors: Kusama’s Enjoyably Tense Cult Thriller
Since premiering her phenomenal, Michelle Rodriguez starring indie debut Girlfight in 2000, Karyn Kusama hasn’t lived up to early prognostications. One of the few women directors with a big budget studio effort to her name, the ill-fated Aeon Flux (2005), starring a post-Oscar Charlize Theron, followed by the highly anticipated horror film, Jennifer’s Body, written by Diablo Cody (unfortunately less revisionist than one would have hoped for), the director unfortunately been unable to showcase her talents with these critically lambasted mainstream titles.
The Invitation, re-teams with her Aeon Flux (2005) writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi (recently responsible for the Kevin Hart/Ice Cube film Ride Along) for a much more enjoyable passion project. Featuring a cast of bright young Los Angeles actors we’ve seen filtered through a number of American indie films, Kusama builds intense atmosphere atop familiar foreboding for »
