New Trailer Drops For Teen Assassin Comedy Barely Lethal

24 April 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A second trailer for teenage assassin comedy Barely Lethal has arrived online. After a long distribution delay, Kyle Newman’s latest offering is gunning down a VOD and theatrical opening this spring, and now’s as good a time as any to get yourself acquainted with the movie.

Hailee Steinfeld stars as a Hit Girl type called Megan Walsh, who was raised as a highly-skilled special ops assassin. When she weighs up the pros and cons of her dangerous livelihood, she opts to throw down her weapons and study up on the rules of high school etiquette. And from what we can gather, this newest tease doesn’t offer a whole lot more insight than the first trailer. Steinfeld’s affable, smart teen is taken down a peg or two by Samuel L. Jackson’s mentor figure and the chaos begins.

On the basis of its strongest selling points – a »

‘Barely Lethal’ Trailer: Maybe Espionage Is Easier Than High School

24 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Samuel L. Jackson is the taskmaster who wants her back; Sophie Turner is the rival; and Jessica Alba […]

Watch: Hailee Steinfeld is an Assassin Turned High Schooler in 'Barely Lethal' Trailer

24 April 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Hailee Steinfeld to Play Carrie Pilby in Ya Adaptation If Matthew Vaughn's box office hit "Kingsman: The Secret Service" proved anything earlier this year, it's that audiences never get too tired of a cocky-teenager-turned-kickass-assassin storyline. While such a character is a staple of young-adult spy movies, director Kyle Newman and star Hailee Steinfeld are shaking the genre up in this summer's action-comedy "Barely Lethal." Steinfeld stars as Megan Walsh, a ruthless teenage special ops agent who yearns for a normal adolescence. After faking her own death and assuming the role of an exchange student, the agent quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of a typical American high school can be even more difficult than international espionage. "Barely Lethal' co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Dove Cameron and Thomas Mann. The film will be available on DirectTV beginning April 30. A theatrical »

Watch: Better Us Trailer for 'Barely Lethal' Starring Hailee Steinfeld

24 April 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He so gets me!" A24 Films has debuted the official Us trailer for Barely Lethal, the new film from Kyle Newman (Fanboys) starring Hailee Steinfeld as a teenage assassin who goes to high school. A month ago we posted a different (international) trailer for this film, and it looked awful, but even Kyle Newman went on the record saying it was a terrible trailer and you should wait for the official one (which is this one). So give this new trailer a chance! It actually looks solid, a fun throwback to wacky 90's comedy action flicks. There's some odd lines of dialogue but I think the film might be entertaining. The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Jaime King, Thomas Mann, Dan Fogler and yep, Steve-o. Here's the official Us trailer for Kyle Newman's Barely Lethal, direct from A24's YouTube: Official synopsis from YouTube: "A »

24 April 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the car crash of spy movie/special agent flicks this year — "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "Spy," "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," "Mission Impossible — Rogue Nation," "The Gunman," "Bridge Of Spies"  — we sorta forgot about "Barely Lethal." But the action comedy is coming and a new trailer has arrived. Starring Hailee SteinfeldSamuel L. JacksonJessica AlbaJaime King, and Sophie Turner, the film follows a girl, raised as an orphan in a school that trains kids to kill, who wants to have a normal teenage life. So she fakes her death and finds a suburban home only to realize she can't escape her past. This is all pretty broad and fish-out-of-water wacky, and seems aimed at the junior high crowd, so match your expectations accordingly. Read More: Watch Hailee Steinfeld & Samuel L.

New Barely Lethal Trailer Has a 90s Throwback Vibe

24 April 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new Barely Lethal trailer for director Kyle Newman’s (Fanboys) upcoming action comedy has been released online. The film stars Hailee Steinfeld as a teenage assassin who’s a master of lethal techniques, but doesn’t quite want to live the life of a killer. She decides to fake her death and try being a normal high school student, but she can’t escape her training or old foes. This new official trailer isn’t terribly different from the previous international one, but what I like most about it is that the film reminds me of the kinds of teen-centric movies they made in the 90s. She’s All That, American Pie, and Can’t Hardly Wait may not be considered “high art” (though I’d argue Clueless most definitely is), but they’re a hell of a lot of fun. Those kinds of films are few and far »

Roll With It: 4 Hollywood-Approved Ways to Cuff Your Pants

23 April 2015 6:38 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You may think attaining the perfect pant cuff is a no-brainer. How hard could it be to roll them pant legs up, right? So why is one roll always bigger than the other? Why does it never look like Jessica Alba's perfect pair or Hilary Duff's casual cuffs? In the morning, half asleep and already late, this struggle is especially real. No one feels your pain more than E! Style Collective member Lindsay Albanese. The celebrity stylist recently stopped by the E!

Spring's Latest Celebrity Nail Trend? The Less-Is-More Mani

23 April 2015 4:27 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

A less-is-more movement is sweeping fashion and beauty, in which makeup is a bit softer (if not non-existent) and fashion is more streamlined (with celebs like Jessica Alba and Blake Lively recently wearing monochromatic looks). And the latest celebrity nail looks are following suit. Artsy expressions are still being worn but in a more understated way. Full-on, patterned neon gives way to negative space designs, and loud hues are replaced with creamy pastel shades decked with metallic accents. As fashion-forward stars know, this wave of styling isn't about going normcore—it's about playing up nails while simultaneously going softer. Take Rita Ora's mani at the MTV Movie Awards. She kept her nails in »

Surprising Celebrity Spring Trends You'll Want to Wear All Year Long

22 April 2015 5:21 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We get it: Spring = florals. Groundbreaking, we know. But you needn't look like a walking garden party to invoke the season's bright and whimsical vibes. In fact, a few of our favorite celebs have spent the last few months proving that subtlety and small adjustments to a full-fledged trend are just as, if not more, effective. Wide-leg pants Culottes are seeing a major revival this season—as evidenced by Jessica Alba, who prefers billowy coverage from high waist, down. These wide-leg trousers are great for elongating your your bottom half. At the same time, the wider the pant leg, the smaller your waist can look. For the fashion fearless, try a palazzo pant in a graphic print or pastel color for an »

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have been married for almost four months now, but these two are clearly still in the honeymoon phase! The newlyweds were spotted out and about running errands in Los Angeles today, marking the first time we've seen the duo in a few weeks.

Trend Alert! Celebs Go Monochromatic in Sorbet Pantsuits

22 April 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Maybe these ladies are taking a note from colorful pantsuit connoisseur Hillary Clinton. That's right—the trend that lit on radar today involves pretty pastel pantsuits, which we've seen in delectable sorbet hues on Hayden Panettiere, Jessica Alba and Blake Lively. Blake, who's been on a fashion chic streak like no other lately, made one of her nine looks from a whirlwind press day on April 21 a cotton candy pink Cushnie Et Ochs get-up (we love the high-waist cut of the pants). Hayden, meanwhile, opted to wear a pale pink pantsuit for her April 20 Good Morning America appearance in New York City. Her cropped version of the look was a good choice (all the better to see those Christian Louboutin heels »

We already knew Kate Middleton's second-time-around maternity style was very, very chic, but the global effects of her pregnancy appearances are even more astounding. The "Kate effect" was a game-changer for maternity brand Seraphine: The brand's profits have reportedly quadrupled since Kate began wearing pieces from the line, and their global presence has also grown astronomically, too.

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

The MTV Movie Awards Hosts You Probably Forgot About

7 April 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, and we can't wait to see the hilarious Amy Schumer take the stage as the night's host. The stand-up comedian and Inside Amy Schumer star will join a long list of past emcees that includes Eddie Murphy, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Jessica Alba. While some hosts have been pretty unforgettable (remember how many digs Russell Brand took at the stars in the audience?), there are others we completely forgot about. For instance, we had no idea that Will Smith hosted the show back in 1994, and we may have blocked out that time MTV paired Jimmy Fallon with Kirsten Dunst for 2001's big event. Some high-profile stars have even hosted more than once! Keep reading to see all the MTV Movie Awards hosts you may have forgotten about, then check out the most '90s-tastic moments and sexiest smooches from the show's best kiss award winners. »
