Stars: Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Iaon Gruffudd, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Aubrey Plaza, Patrick Warburton, Martin Starr, Luke Wilson, Matthew Morrison, Ashley Tisdale, Philip Baker Hall | Written by Chris Shafer, Paul Vicknair | Directed by Justin Reardon
Imagine if love was easy, we’d have less rom-coms for a start. These comedies that look at the complications of love tend to make themselves out to be the only movie that does the re-tread tale in this certain way, the truth being most follow a similar structure (because it works). The success of the film relies on making the audience care for the characters and charming the hopeless romantic in them into submission. The question is can Chris “Captain America” Evans charm you by Playing it Cool? The answer is probably yes.
Chris Evans plays a screenwriter given the task of writing a script for a rom-com. Being the jaded type he »

Taylor Swift just landed her best gig yet: Godmother! The "Style" singer took to Instagram on Sunday to announce the news and to share a sweet snapshot of herself rubbing Jaime King's bare baby bump.

Playing It Cool, 2015
Directed by Justin Reardon
Unrequited love motivates a guy to write about his experiences.
First time director Justin Reardon clearly has a lot of friends in high places. Along with first time writers Chris Shafter and Paul Vicknair, they have managed to amass a cast that includes Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie, Spider-Man 3‘s Topher Grace, Fantastic Four‘s Ioan Gruffudd and Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza, as well as Martin Starr, Luke Wilson and Michelle Monaghan. Now a cast list wouldn’t seem that out of the ordinary for most motion pictures, this is for Playing It Cool (formally A Many Splintered Thing), a simple rom-com that is now available on VOD. Is it a bad movie? »

HitFix Award Gurus Kris Tapley and Greg Ellwood are both attending Saturday's Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) afternoon in Santa Monica and they left me to handle HitFix's Independent Spirit Awards Winners & Losers list. And once I'm watching Saturday's show, I might as well be live-blogging Saturday's show as preparation for Sunday's Oscars live-blog, especially since is the last time that "Birdman" and "Boyhood" will be going head-to-head for Best Picture (along with "Selma" and "Whiplash") before the Academy Awards. So follow along and say "Hi" in the comments below... And remember that Saturday's show, hosted by Kristen Bell and Fred Armisen, is airing live on IFC, not that obnoxious tape-delayed thing they used to do! 1:50 p.m. Pt. The show hasn't started, but if you're following the Winners list, you know that "Birdman" has already won for for cinematography, while "Whiplash" won for editing, both results I can accept. »

With an all-star cast that includes Chris Evans (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Michelle Monaghan (Due Date) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Playing It Cool is an offbeat romantic comedy from debut feature director Justin Reardon and is described as Swingers meets 500 Days of Summer.
Check out the trailer below:
Playing it Cool is this generation’s ‘Swingers’ meets ‘500 Days of Summer’, a fresh and quirky story of a slight pretentious man, our ‘narrator’ (Evans), who falls for an unlikely girl, ‘her’ (Monaghan), and will stop at nothing to get her even after realizing she is already in a relationship. Like a young ‘Walter Mitty’, it tells the story of a quarter-life crisis amidst figuring out who you are and what your destiny holds.

Celebrating the world premiere Friday night at the Sundance Festival of Jose Manuel Cravioto’s “Reversal,” a film whose origins trace back to its 2013 event, Mexico’s Los Cabos Intl. Film Festival, one of Latin America’s fastest-growing fests, has set dates for its fourth edition: Nov. 11-15.
The slot retains Los Cabos advantageous post-American Film Market berth. “Our industry strategy has always benefited from our closeness to the American Film Market. It allows many of our key guests to participate in Los Cabos following business there,” said Los Cabos director Alonso Aguilar Castillo.
He added: “After the Afm, which can be very demanding for many executives, Los Cabos offers an inviting environment, with many business contacts being made over lunch in front of the beach or at parties.”
Aguilar Castillo signaled that Los Cabos would “definitely” maintain its U.S.-Mexico-Canada Co-production Forum, launched in 2014, along with its Work »

The television industry is catching up with film and learning that pot sells in Hollywood. As more states join the legal marijuana movement and the drug becomes less taboo in the country, entertainment industry insiders say interest in weed-related storylines is at an all-time high.
Showtime series “Shameless,” for instance, which follows Chicago’s dysfunctional Gallagher family and stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, will embark on a major weed arc later this year. The network is also responsible »

"May the hair on your toes never fall out." Hurry – before the angry legal goons in Hollywood put their foot down and stamp out this fire! In all truth and honesty, I fully expected this (someone would re-cut it into one movie) to happen sooner or later, and I'm glad it was sooner. A J.R.R. Tolkien super-fan who goes by "tolkieneditor" has published a 4-hour re-edit (or "fan cut") of The Hobbit trilogy, with the conclusion still playing in theaters now. His new version has condensed the excess footage from Jackson's trilogy into one extended 4-hour presentation. It's not exactly "one" movie, and I'm sure we'll see someone make that eventually, but it is the first attempt at redoing The Hobbit as a single story–the way it should've been done. Similar to the way Topher Grace re-cut the Star Wars prequels into one 90-minute movie, and similar to Steven Soderbergh »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »
