Coming from David Wain the director of Role Models, here is the new poster for Wanderlust. The comedy stars the always likeable Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston as George and Linda, who decide to live an alternative lifestyle on a rural commune after losing their jobs in the recession. For me, Role Models while having a few decent laughs, never really hit the laughter highs of Rudd’s roles in the likes of I Love You Man, Knocked Up or Our Idiot Brother. So hopefully director Wain and star Rudd’s re-teaming will hit the funny bone more frequent than their previous film promised.

Well we're on a roll here for remake Friday it seems. Don't even get me started again on the potential 'American Psycho' redo, instead let's concentrate on another 'whats-the-point' makeover of sorts for the Michael Crichton helmed 'Coma'. The 1978 sci-fi conspiracy thriller movie, which Crichton penned based on the original novel by Robin Cook, starred Michael Douglas and Genevieve Bujold and is set for a bit of a TV makeover as a two-night, four-hour miniseries for AandE. The one good thing about the show is that filmmaker siblings Tony Scott and Ridley Scott will be exec producing so it'll definitely have some cache. But then with a cast featuring the likes of Lauren Ambrose ('Six Feet Under'), Steven Pasquale ('Rescue Me'), Richard Dreyfuss ('Jaws'), Ellen Burstyn ('Requiem For A Dream'), Geena Davis and James Woods ('Videodrome' »
Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Geena Davis, Lauren Ambrose, and Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) will star in Coma, a four-hour miniseries based on the Robin Cook novel that will air on A&E.
Directed by Mikail Salomon (Band of Brothers) and produced by Tony and Ridley Scott, Coma is a thriller “about a doctor who discovers that something sinister is going on in her hospital after routine procedures send more than a few seemingly healthy patients into comas on the operating table.”
- Jeff Labrecque
Based on the medical thriller novel by Robin Cook, the story follows a doctor who begins to suspect that something is amiss when healthy patients begin to fall into comas. Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Geena Davis, James Rebhorn, Joe Morton and Joseph Mazello also star.
Author Michael Crichton previously directed a 1978 film adaptation which starred Michael Douglas and Geneviève Bujold. This marks the second time the Scotts and A&E have remade a classic Crichton work, the first being the generally panned 2008 miniseries adaptation of his early novel "The Andromeda Strain".
Shooting will kick off shortly in Atlanta with the two-night, four-hour miniseries set to air Memorial Day 2012. »

Tony and Ridley Scott have lined up an all-star cast, including multiple Oscar winners, for A&E’s reboot of Michael Crichton’s medical thriller Coma. Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) headline the miniseries about a doctor who begins to suspect that something is amiss when healthy patients begin to fall into comas. Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods and Geena Davis also star. The two-night, four-hour miniseries is set to bow Memorial Day 2012. The project will shoot in Atlanta, home of an increasing number of film and TV projects including

Next year’s full to bursting with exciting movies, so to help out a little, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2012…
As 2011 draws to a close, one eye is inevitably on the treats that are lying ahead for 2012. With that in mind, we've got our line-up of, as things stands, the 25 films that are brightest on our radar.
Now, a couple of disclaimers.
There are films that haven't made the cut here simply because we don't know a fat lot about them yet, or at least not enough to get us fired up. Jack The Giant Killer, Rise Of The Guardians, Red Tails, Chronicle and Dark Shadows all fit into that category.
Plus there are the films that we suspect will turn out strongly, but what we've seen of them so far hasn't blown us away (Brave, Skyfall). Then there are the potential hidden gems (ParaNorman) we'll »
Universal has debuted the trailer and poster (via Yahoo) for The Five-Year Engagement, which reteams The Muppets co-writers Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller only this time Stoller is back behind the camera, where he was when he directed Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The synopsis reads like this: Beginning where most romantic comedies end, The Five-Year Engagement looks at what happens when an engaged couple, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle. Like The Muppets, the film was written by Segel and Stoller. The Five-Year Engagement is set to hit theaters on April 27, 2012 and along with Segel and Blunt, the rest of the cast includes Alison Brie, Chris Pratt, Rhys Ifans, Jacki Weaver, Lauren Ambrose, Lauren Weedman, David Paymer, Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell, Jim Piddock and Dakota Johnson. Check out the trailer directly below. »

Following up their initial competition announcement the folks at the Sundance Film Festival have released the names of thirty additional 2012 selections, in the Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next, and New Frontiers sections.
Although these sections tend to focus more on young and up-and-coming filmmakers (particularly the Next sidebar, which was created just a few years ago with that specific mandate), you might find a few names you recognize in the full list of invited films below. Next is where you'll find the new film from "Great World of Sound" director Craig Zobel; it's called "Compliance" and it's described as the (based-on-a-)true story of what happens "when a prank caller convinces a fast food restaurant manager to interrogate an innocent young employee." Lynn Shelton, director of "Humpday," will premiere "Your Sister's Sister" starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and "Humpday"s Mark Duplass. Duplass also wrote his wife Katie Aselton »

Yesterday the Sundance Film Festival announced the core lineup of films  that will be spotlit in the Competition slates at the 2012 festival. Now we've got a lineup of films that will play out of competition in the Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next <=> and New Frontier schedules. There are a few films in here with which you might be nominally familiar, like The Raid, Grabbers and Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, not to mention Andrea Arnold's new version of Wuthering Heights. But many are new announcements. While the competition lineups are always a good place to look for some of the films that will be the most talked-about in the year following each Sundance fest, these schedules are where some of the more unique and provocative films live. There are still some big premieres to be announced next week, but if I was making a big Sundance wishlist, »

Following yesterday's announcement of the titles lined up for the four programs of the Competition, the Sundance Film Festival has unveiled the lineups of its out-of-competition sections: Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next <=> and New Frontier. This time, I'm going to go ahead and copy-n-paste the release nearly in full because, well, these are, potentially at least, the more interesting batches.
We'll cut in just as Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, is saying, “In many ways, the extremes of the Festival’s program are most readily apparent in our out-of-competition sections, which showcase the wildest comedies, the most terrifying horror films and uncompromised visions from singular voices springing up from around the country and the world. We hope audiences experiment with their film selections to an equal degree as these filmmakers have experimented with their storytelling.”

Following yesterday’s announcement of competition titles, Sundance Film Festival 2012 have announced the line-up for a few more sections today. In their Spotlight section we have a few of my favorite Tiff titles, including Wuthering Heights (pictured above), Your Sister’s Sister, as well as audience-winners The Raid and Where Do We Go Now? We also get the insane-looking Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie in the midnight section. Check out the list below.
Park City, Ut — Sundance Institute announced today the films selected to screen in the 2012 Sundance Film Festival out-of-competition sections Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next <=> and New Frontier.

And with that, the Oscar race is on!
Tuesday (Nov 29) morning was a busy one for the films hoping to vie for Academy Awards in February. The New York Film Critics Circle listed its winners and the Film Independent Spirits announced its nominations simultaneously in a couple hours of dizzying Oscar buzz.
Both awards are usually the earliest indication of which films could lead the pack when it comes time to announce the Academy Award nominees in January. The Nyfcc were so early this year, in fact, that they had to delay their awards until after screening David Fincher's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," to which they awarded nothing.
Perhaps the biggest story coming out of both announcements was the emergence of Michael Hazanavicius's ode to golden-era silent film, "The Artist," as perhaps an early front-runner for Best Picture. The film had earned raves during the festival circuit a few months ago, »

Monday night brought the first ceremony of awards season as the Gotham Independent Film Awards took place in New York City, and the dust barely had time to settle before the nominations for indie cinema's most pretigious accolades - Film Independent's Spirit Awards - were announced on Tuesday evening.
Despite sharing Best Feature with Max Mills Beginners at the Gotham Awards, there was no place for Terrence Malick's divisive drama The Tree of Life (nor acclaimed efforts Like Crazy and We Need to Talk About Kevin) among the nominees, with Beginners set to contest Best Film - won last year by Darren Aronofsky's psychological thriller Black Swan - with Jonathan Levine's 50/50, Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive, Jeff Nichols' Take Shelter, Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist and Alexander Payne's The Descendants.
Mills, Winding Refn, Nichols, Michel Hazanavicius and Payne also received nods for Best Director, while »
Nominations for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards were announced at 8 am this morning, Hollywood Time:
Best Female Lead Performance: Lauren Ambrose (Think of Me), Rachel Harris (Natural Selection), Adepero Oduye (Pariah), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn).
Best Supporting Female Performance: Jessica Chastain »
Fresh off a big double win at the Gothams (where it won Best Feature and Best Ensemble), Mike Mills' Beginners has nabbed four nominations for the 27th Indie Spirit Awards tying with three other Best Feature hopefuls in Jeff Nichol's Take Shelter, The Descendants and Cannes preemed, Drive. However the four were outmatched by Michel Hazanavicius's The Artist which garnered five noms in Best Feature, Best Director, Best Male Lead, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography categories. Martha Marcy May Marlene grabbed four noms as well if you add the Upcoming Producer award along with the three noms in the Best First Feature, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor categories. Among the notable nominees worth mentioning and that raised some eyebrows, we have Lauren Ambrose's perf in Tiff shown "Think Of Me" and Rachel Harris' bit in the SXSW preemed "Natural Selection" that landed Best Female »
