Sudeikis thus will lend his voice to Zorn, an animated fantasy warrior who upon returning home from “battle” discovers that reconnecting with his live-action son Alan (played by 21 Jump Street‘s Johnny Pemberton) and ex-wife Edie (Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Cheryl Hines) while dealing with an office job and suburban life is harder than waging war in his homeland. »

Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People., for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

LeBron James, dirty jokes, & Amy Schumer's genius: The 'Trainwreck' spoiler review

18 July 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We have plenty of movie coverage here at HitFix — including Drew's rave review of this film from SXSW — but as happens when I see a film relatively early in its run, and particularly one like "Trainwreck" with a fair amount of crossover with what I cover in TV, I like to offer up a few of my thoughts, as well as a place for people who have seen the film to start discussing it. Again, this review is designed for people who've already seen "Trainwreck," and thus will have plenty of spoilers, coming up just as soon as we split the check... Amy Schumer is on an incredible roll right now. She just finished perhaps the strongest season to date of "Inside Amy Schumer" — and the "12 Angry Men" spoof is an early contender for 2015's best episode of television — and "Trainwreck" is a terrific movie introduction for her as both actress and writer. »

Trainwreck's Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow on funny women and LeBron James

15 July 2015 12:03 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Together, Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow are a comedy force to be reckoned with.  How funny are the writer/star and director of Trainwreck?  We had to pause our interview due to laughter since it’s nearly impossible to get through any discussion with a straight face when these two are in the room.

The duo are hoping that you won’t be able to keep the laughter at bay when Trainwreck hits theatres this Friday.  Comedian Amy Schumer wrote the screenplay and stars in the brand new comedy as Amy, a career-driven woman who seems to have her all of her priorities in order until she meets good guy Aaron (Bill Hader).  With Aaron around, the commitment phobic Amy is suddenly rethinking her life-long stance against monogamy.

The laughs are plenty for Schumer in her first starring role.  But she’s not the only funny one on screen.  Besides Hader, »

Get to know Trainwreck's Amy Schumer

14 July 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Who exactly is Amy Schumer?  By now, you’ve probably heard her name, seen a clip from her TV show “Inside Amy Schumer” make its round on the web, or caught her hosting gig fronting the MTV Movie Awards.  Whether you’re new to the Schumer club and just trying to find out as much as you can about the stand-up star before her summer laugh fest Trainwreck drops or you’ve been cheering her on since “Last Comic Standing,” get to know Amy Schumer now:


She got her start early 

Remember how great the 1992 Disney movie Newsies was starring a young Christian Bale as a dancing newsboy in 1899?  We thought so.  What you probably don’t remember is a young Amy, dressed as a boy, dancing along next to Bale.  The 11-year-old was an extra on the set of the film.  But don’t strain to catch a strain »

‘The Spoils Before Dying’ On IFC July 8 Video

A jazzy potboiler, a lustful murder mystery, add the irreverence of Will Ferrell and the work of author-turned-director Eric Jonrosh’s magnum opus The Spoils Before Dying, and July is looking pretty steamy for fans of the tongue in cheek genre.While his book was burned and the film shocked a nation before being destroyed for public safety, one copy remained.

Originally titled Conner4real, The Lonely Island crew -- Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone -- are heading to the big screen with a comedy mockumentary that appears to no longer have an official title, but Universal Pictures has set a release date. The Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie (Universal's words) will hit theaters on June 3, 2016 and will see Samberg star as a rapper (most likely named Conner4real) whose album bombs, leaving him with little career choice other than to re-form his old boy band. The film co-stars Tim Meadows as Samberg's manager along with James Buckley and Sarah Silverman. Production will wrap on the project at the end of this week. The comedy will face off against Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 and the romance Me Before You starring Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin and Matthew Lewis. Bom »

The Lonely Island’s Conner4Real Arrives Next Summer

9 June 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Lonely Island’s feature film debut, which has been referred to as Conner4Real, will hit theaters on June 3, 2o16, Universal announced today.

Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone make up the musical-comedy trio that has repeatedly taken Saturday Night Live by storm over the years with songs like “D— in a Box,” “I’m on a Boat” and “I Just Had Sex.” Producer Judd Apatow has wanted to make a movie with the group for years, and the stars finally aligned for this one, in which Samberg takes a starring role.

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor will portray a rapper whose solo album bombs, leaving him embarrassed and with no hope of salvaging his fame other than reuniting the old boy band (including Schaffer and Taccone) he swore he’d leave behind forever. Tim Meadows has a supporting role as the rapper’s overworked but perpetually, inexplicably optimistic manager. »

Week in Review: The New York Times will no longer review every movie opening in NY

22 May 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In this day and age of film criticism, less of it is seemingly always a bad thing, and when a bastion like The New York Times announces they’re cutting back, it seems like a particularly painful blow. However, Variety Thursday obtained an email from Nyt Film Critic A. O. Scott explaining that the Times would no longer be reviewing every movie opening in New York, and the ironic truth is that this “new” policy may go a long way toward bettering the film coverage.

“Because of the increasing volume of new films released each year, the Times is no longer able to guarantee reviews of all New York theatrical releases,” Scott said in an email. He went on to add in a phone interview to Variety that the paper had already instated such a policy quietly earlier this year, and coyly confirmed as much on Twitter.

In 2013, the Times published nearly 900 film reviews. »
