Melissa McCarthy Is The Boss In New Red Band Trailer For Ben Falcone’s Comedy

12 February 2016 11:49 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Melissa McCarthy has played unhinged police detectives and vulgar Bridesmaids, budding secret agents and, soon, a badass Ghostbuster. But before donning the proton pack in Paul Feig’s reboot, the fan-favorite actress will step into the shoes of a fast-talking business mogul for The Boss, and today brings forth the decidedly not-safe-for-work first trailer.

For the comedy romp, McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, the wealthiest woman in all of America. She’s a pompous and egotistical loud-mouth – along with some other descriptions from Kathy Bates’ name-calling rant that we’ll refrain from including – though that empire soon comes crashing down when she’s found guilty of insider trading.

Feeling her fame and fortune slip between her fingers, McCarthy’s Darnell devises a plan to reinstate her crumbling empire with the help of Kristen Bell’s friend, and it’s a business scheme that involves, er, selling brownies with the help of »

Is Melissa McCarthy The Best R-Rated Comedienne Ever? She Makes Her Case In Red Band ‘The Boss’ Trailer

12 February 2016 9:38 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

After being woefully under-appreciated for her layered turn in the Paul Feig-directed Spy, Melissa McCarthy is back in full R-rated raunchy comedy mode with The Boss. She plays a disgraced mogul who tries to rebound by creating a Girl Scouts empire. I’m not sure if this qualifies as a female empowerment message, but the trailer is definitely not for the faint of… »

It seems Hollywood comedians are enjoying sticking it to the 1%.

First Photo of the Ecto-2 Motorcycle from New Ghostbusters Film

11 February 2016 10:50 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following the recently revealed character photos from the new Ghostbusters film, Sony Pictures has now unveiled the first look at the Ecto-2 motorcycle—a ride that should turn a few heads due to the lasers mounted on its handlebars.

The Ecto-2 photo (shown below) is courtesy of Collider (via Sony Pictures). A departure from the autogyro version that appeared in The Real Ghostbusters animated series, the reboot's two-wheeled Ecto-2 joins the previously revealed Ecto-1 car in the Ghostbusters' convoy.

Directed and co-written (with Katie Dippold) by Paul Feig, the Ghostbusters reboot stars Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth

Original Ghostbusters stars Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Annie Potts, and Sigourney Weaver are all set to appear in the reboot, with Andy Garcia, Matt Walsh, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Cecily Strong also along for the ride. The new Ghostbusters movie is set for a »

Twitter Study: Box-Office Hits Have 150% More Tweets From Movie Talent

11 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Wall Street has soured on Twitter and its stagnating user growth, but the social-media company is hoping new research convinces Hollywood that tweets from a film’s talent are a great promotional vehicle.

Twitter teamed with analytics firm Crimson Hexagon to analyze tweets for 33 movies released in 2015, spanning each film’s lifecycle from trailer release to post-premiere. The films included 15 “over-performers,” which had an average box-office-to-budget ratio of 2.5, and 18 “under-performers,” with a B.O./budget ratio of 0.5.

The key findings: Over-performing movies had 150% more posts on Twitter than the pics that bombed, among the films analyzed. Overall, movies that had talent who were active on Twitter saw a 326% boost in average daily volume of conversation on the service, compared with those whose actors or directors did not have Twitter accounts.

“It’s a powerful story to tell: Having your cast on Twitter does boost the overall conversation about your movie, »

Ecto-2 Motorcycle Unveiled in Latest 'Ghostbusters' Photo

11 February 2016 8:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Ecto-2 motorcycle was first spotted on the set of Ghostbusters this past summer. And at first, it was believed to belong to Kate McKinnon's aviator glasses wearing Jillian Holtzmann. But we later learned that this back-up vehicle for the Ecto-1 was actually Chris Hemsworth's ride in the movie, as seen in various set images and the latest Lego toy photos. In the movie, Hemsworth plays the Ghostbusters' secretary, Kevin. Now, we have an official still of the Ecto-2 motorcycle, which gives us a better look at this Honda two-wheeler equipped with Ghostbusting weapons.

These new Ghostbusters exist in an entirely different universe than the 1984 Ghostbusters. The story centers on Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), who, years ago, wrote a book that posited ghosts do in fact exist. The plot picks up with Erin acquiring a teaching position at the prestigious Columbia University. »

There are few voices on the television comedy landscape at the moment that are as bright as Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. The duo behind "Broad City" have quickly ascended to the top ranks of small screen laughs, with their Comedy Central becoming a big fave, and I can only imagine it's just a matter of time until the feature film world comes knocking down their down, as it did for their network pals, "Key & Peele."

Pixar’s Forgetful Fish Is Lost In The Deep Blue In New Posters For Finding Dory

9 February 2016 1:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact Andrew Stanton’s long-awaited animated sequel is arriving a full 13 years after its beloved predecessor, only six months have lapsed for aquatic life under the sea, and today’s series of posters for Finding Dory prove that Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful explorer is still as playful as ever.

Keeping up her habit of swimming (and swimming and swimming), the images are as much a showcase of Pixar’s vibrant rendition of the deep blue as they are a game of hide-and-seek.

Returning along DeGeneres for the adventure are Albert Brooks and Hayden Rolence – replacing Alexander Gould from the 2003 original – and it’s only when Dory catches sight of manta rays migrating home while attending a school trip with Nemo that she sparks a burning desire to find her wayward parents. It’s a desire she didn’t realise she had in the first place, of course, and Finding Dory »

Goldie Hawn May Play Amy Schumer's Mom in Vacation Comedy

9 February 2016 11:05 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Two comedy giants may be joining forces: Goldie Hawn is reportedly in talks to play Amy Schumer's mom in an upcoming mother-daughter vacation comedy.

Vulture reporter Kyle Buchanan was the first to break the news that Hawn was circling the role, which would be her first since way back in 2002, when she co-starred with Susan Sarandon in "The Banger Sisters." Since then, Hawn has been in semi-retirement, so landing her for the Schumer project would be a major coup.

According to TheWrap, the flick in question is an untitled project from director Jonathan Levine ("50/50," "Warm Bodies," "The Night Before"), produced by hitmaker Paul Feig and written by frequent Feig collaborator Katie Dippold ("The Heat," "Spy," this summer's "Ghostbusters"). It's based on Dippold's relationship with her own mother, per TheWrap, and centers around "a family vacation gone wrong."

So far Hawn's involvement has not been confirmed by studio 20th Century Fox, »
