First Trailer For Chris Rock's Top Five

17 October 2014 6:56 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Also at the helm, Chris Rock takes the lead in Top Five, playing a former stand up comedian turned film star who wants to put comedy behind him and try his hand at something more serious, which doesn't sit right with his reality t.v. star wife (Gabrielle Union) and agent (Kevin Hart). No doubt Rock is drawing a bit from experience here (he also wrote the script), and he has drafted in some very familiar faces, with Rosario Dawson,Tracey Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jerry Seinfeld all making an appearance. There is a lot to like in this first trailer. Rock seems on fine form, and there is a lot of laughs to be had. Check it out below. Released: 12th December (U.S.)/ 16th January 2015 (Irl/U.K.) »

Chris Rock Is The Funniest Man In America In Top Five Trailer

17 October 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After making a name for himself in comedy clubs with his wham-bam stand-up schtick, Chris Rock’s move into movies was a natural progression for the gifted funnyman. His fast-paced frenetic style has made his work on projects such as the Grown Ups franchise, zap and crackle despite their less than inspired subject matter. While he’s definitely scored some high points during his time on the big screen (2 Days In Paris), he’s in need of a boost; and his next effort, Top Five is the perfect vehicle to reignite his career.

Written, produced and directed by Rock, Top Five earned rave reviews earlier this year when it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival. Needless to say, as a hot property it was snatched up by Paramount who have now begun their marketing campaign for the offbeat comedy. In the pic, Rock stars as a has-been comic, who »

Chris Rock's Top Five Trailer Is Laugh-Out-Loud Funny

16 October 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Chris Rock's Top Five was one of the breakouts at Tiff, and the hilarious trailer will show you why. Rock wrote, directed, and produced the edgy comedy (while Jay Z and Kanye West produced) about Andre Allen, a comedian who's gotten rich off of cheesy movies but is trying to reinvent his career. Gabrielle Union plays his fiancée, a Kim Kardashian-like reality star who does everything on camera, while Rosario Dawson is a reporter sent to interview him. From the sharp wit to the goofy satire (is it wrong that I'd see Hammy the Bear?), Top Five looks hilarious and ultratimely. The movie opens Dec. 5, so check out the preview now. »

I'm still upset I missed Chris Rock's Top Five at the Toronto Film Festival, but then again, it's not like I'll have to wait long to see it as Paramount snatched it up and has already set a December 5 release date. Written by, directed by and starring Rock, Top Five tells the story of New York City comedian-turned-film star Andre Allen, whose unexpected encounter with a journalist forces him to confront both the career that made him famous and the life he left behind. And along with Rock, the film co-stars Rosario Dawson, J.B. Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Tracy Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Romany Malco. And as if all that wasn't enough, Chris Rock is going to host "Saturday Night Live" on November 1 with musical guest Prince. To be honest, I'm more excited about that than I am the movie, »

Rock, who co-wrote and directed the film, stars as Andre Allen, "the funniest man in America," star of the blockbuster "Hammy the Bear" series, and fiance of reality star Erica Long (Gabrielle Union).

Top Five Trailer: Chris Rock Writes, Directs, and Stars in Cameo-Filled New Comedy

16 October 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Paramount Pictures has released the first Top Five trailer for the upcoming comedy from writer, director, and star Chris Rock.  The comedian plays a loosely fictionalized version of himself in the film, whose unexpected encounter with a journalist forces him to confront both the career that made him famous and the life he left behind.  The picture was the highest profile acquisition of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, with Paramount paying a whopping $12.5 million in a bidding war to acquire the distribution rights to the film.  The movie looks a little like Chris Rock's Funny People, as it takes some digs at his own career path, and there are a ton of cameos from a wide range of familiar faces. Hit the jump to watch the Top Five trailer and click here to read Phil's review from Tiff.  The film also stars Rosario Dawson, J.B. Smoove, Gabrielle Union, »

First trailer for Top Five starring Chris Rock and Rosario Dawson

16 October 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Other than those crappy Grown-ups films and as the voice of a zebra in the Madagascar films we haven't seen much of Chris Rock in theatrical releases, with his last stand up special airing in 2009. His most recent effort, Top Five, which he both wrote and directed in, seems like part comeback/part biographical tale for the actor/comedian and the first trailer for the film sets up a familiar, yet engaging premise. The film co-stars Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart, and Gabrielle Union and is »
