5 Fun, Action-Packed Westerns To See Before The Magnificent Seven

22 September 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Gotta love a good old-fashioned Western. It’s a genre that’s been an American staple for decades. The image of the lone gunslinger is one that’s inspired countless novels, films, comics, and TV shows — and it’s one that’s bound to continue to do so for countless years. Though while as kids the genre may have been synonymous with fun adventure, the reality is that the majority of these flicks are slow, meditative character studies.

That’s all well and good, but I’m gonna chuck every one of those movies out the window today. You won’t find me talking about The Assassination of Jesse James, Once Upon A Time In The West, or The Unforgiven here. Granted, I acknowledge the quality of those films, but today, I wanted to highlight a handful of flicks that may be more in line with what we’ll be »

‘Ordinary World’ Trailer: Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Is a Failed Rock Star in First Leading Role

16 September 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Billie Joe Armstrong may be a Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and the frontman of Green Day, one the biggest punk bands ever. But in “Ordinary World,” his first leading role, he’s nothing but a failed rock star missing his glory days. 

Directed and written by Lee Kirk, Armstrong stars as Perry, a former punk rocker who is ten years into his band’s “indefinite hiatus” and is still struggling with adjusting to the real world. After his wife (Selma Blair) and his daughter (Madisyn Shipman) forget his 40th birthday, his brother (Chris Messina) takes pity and gives him money to throw the biggest birthday bash. Check out the latest trailer and poster below.

The First Trailer For New Comedy Bastards Arrives

16 September 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Please enable Javascript to watch this video

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson are men in search of answers in the new trailer for the upcoming comedy film, Bastards. The project is the directorial debut of The Hangover cinematographer Lawrence Sher, and is the first feature-length script from Justin Malen (Trophy Wife) to reach the big screen. With high stakes and hijinks, the movie sets itself as some comedic relief for the new year, with its post-Christmas release window.

The winning elements of this trailer include the way in which the collection of older men approached by Peter and Kyle Reynolds recall their mother (Glenn Close). These wistful memories, dripping with lust, serve to teach these young siblings a valuable lesson – that the image they hold of their mother is not the only version of her that ever existed.

While it is doubtful that Bastards will emerge as ‘Comedy Of The »

Coming Distractions: Ed Helms and Owen Wilson go on a dad hunt in Bastards trailer

16 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The trailer for Owen Wilson and Ed HelmsBastards looks like it was beamed in from 2005. The pair play a couple of schmucks whose mother (Glenn Close) tells them that, even though they thought their dad died of colon cancer, she doesn’t actually know who their father is. So they go out searching and quiz the likes of Terry Bradshaw and a tattooed J.K. Simmons. It’s like Mamma Mia!, but with more butthole jokes and less Abba. Bastards is the directorial debut of cinematographer Lawrence Sher, who was the Dp on all three Hangover movies. Lest you think this movie is going to surprise you, there’s an unsavory gag which involves the two picking up a black hitchhiker and then tying him up in the back of their car.

Bastards hits theaters January 27.

Ed Helms & Owen Wilson are a couple of Bastards

16 September 2016 6:22 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

My favorite genre of film is, by and large, comedy. There's something so effortlessly fun and spirit-lifting about a good comedy, and so soul-crushing about a bad one. But with comedy, the story doesn't need to be unique as long as it's funny. That's exactly how the new Ed Helms/Owen Wilson comedy, Bastards, looks: not exactly original, but looks like a fun time.

Owen Wilson & Ed Helms are Brothers in Trailer for Comedy 'Bastards'

15 September 2016 7:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Who your father is, or isn't, is totally irrelevant." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for the comedy Bastards, starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms as fraternal twin brothers who go on a search for their father when their mother reveals she doesn't know who he really is. This is the feature directorial debut of a cinematographer who has worked on tons of comedies like The Hangover and The Dictator. Also starring Katie Aselton, J.K. Simmons, Terry Bradshaw, Glenn Close, Ving Rhames, Ryan Cartwright, Katt Williams, Retta and Bill Irwin. This looks like your standard goofy comedy with lots of dirty jokes. Here's the first official trailer for Lawrence Sher's Bastards, direct from WB's YouTube: Upon learning that their mother has been lying to them for years about their allegedly deceased father, two fraternal twin brothers (Owen Wilson & Ed Helms) hit the road in order to find him. »

Owen Wilson and Ed Helms Unite as Brothers in Bastards Trailer

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson are ‘Bastards’ in First Trailer

15 September 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After being a go-to cinematographer for a good amount of today’s comedies (The Hangover trilogy, I Love You, Man, Garden State), Lawrence Sher has now taken a different gig behind the camera: director. His debut as a helmer will be arriving early next year with Bastards, teaming two of his past collaborators, Ed Helms and Owen Wilson.

The Warner Bros. comedy follows them as brothers who only recently figured out their father in fact didn’t die when they were young, as their mother (Glenn Close) told them, but is alive and well, although unknown to them. With J.K. Simmons and Terry Bradshaw playing potential fathers, the first trailer has now landed, which sells about as decent of a comedy as we can expect to receive in the early months of the year.

Check out the trailer below.

Bastards opens on January 27, 2017.

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson Look for Their Father in ‘Bastards’ Trailer

15 September 2016 6:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson think former NFL quarterback Terry Bradshaw may be their father in the first trailer for Alcon Entertainment’s comedy “Bastards.”

Helms and Wilson play brothers whose mother Helen Baxter (portrayed Glenn Close) admits at her wedding that she stretched the truth about their father dying when they were young. “I’m not sure who your father was,” she adds.

The duo take off on a road trip to find their real father with evidence pointing to Bradshaw (playing himself) and J.K. Simmons. Ving Rhames, June Squibb and Katt Williams also star.

“Talk about a blast from the past,” Bradshaw responds. “She damn near cost us the Super Bowl.”

Rhames says of the name Helen Baxter, “It does more than ring a bell.”

The film is rated R for language and sexual references throughout.

Lawrence Sher, who shot the “Hangover” films, directs from a screenplay by Justin Malen. »

Owen Wilson And Ed Helms Look For Their Long Lost Dad In First Trailer For ‘Bastards’

15 September 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I’ve always been interested in comedies with a little bit more on the bone than a lot of laughs and something that speaks with some emotional truth,” Lawrence Sher, a longtime cinematographer turned directors told USA Today. “Particularly as we reach middle age, we often look to our parents and our family as to what the hell went wrong here.”

A veteran who’s worked on comedies like “Garden State,” “War Dogs” and “The Dictator,” Sher’s transition from Dop to helmer is for “Bastards” a new “Wedding Crashers”/“The Hangover”—esque comedy starring Ed Helms, Owen Wilson and J.K.

Shanghai Noon Threequel Lands Napoleon Dynamite Director, Jared Hess

7 September 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In 2000, we saw martial arts legend Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson team up in the old west homage Shanghai Noon, a film that gave a lighthearted update to the Western genre and remixed it with a Jackie Chan action flick. The result was pretty great stuff. As a fan of the Western genre, I found a lot to love in some of the nods they made to Spaghetti Western classics (such as the character Nathan Van Cleef), and it's difficult to go wrong with a Jackie Chan action scene. What's more, I thought Chan and Wilson had great chemistry.

A few years later, in 2003, we saw a sequel in Shanghai Knights, which took Chan and Wilson across the sea to Great Britain, where they fought against the power-hungry swordmaster Littlefinger -- I mean, Lord Rathbone. The movie itself, to me, was a step down from the original. No longer did »
