8 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Aubrey Plaza revealed three surprising facts about her “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” costars Zac Efron, Adam Devine and Anna Kendrick — but she couldn’t keep it together while doing so. “Adam has no penis, which is weird because you think he’s a guy that’s normal and has a dick that works, but he just has nothing down there,” she joked, answering a fan-submitted question during an interview with TheWrap. “It’s disturbing. I feel bad for him in general and I think it must be hard to live like that.” And Kendrick? Plaza jokingly revealed the »

Could Anna Kendrick Join Spider-Man as Marvel's Squirrel Girl?

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for 8 years now, and it continues to expand. With movies like Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man: Homecoming snatching up talent left and right, it seems like every actor and actress in Hollywood is going to get a crack at a Marvel character at some point. So naturally, what everyone wants to know is, who is Anna Kendrick going to play in the McU? Well, we may have an answer to that question.

Anna Kendrick is currently out promoting her latest movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and like most actors or actresses right now, she is getting asked what superhero or comic book character she might like to play. The question came in an interview with Net-a-Porter, and Kendrick had a pretty out of the box, but probably very welcomed answer. As it turns out, she might want to play Squirrel Girl. Here »

Anna Kendrick Kinda Says She’d Be Down To Play Squirrel Girl

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In this age of comic book movie blockbusterism, superheroes and supervillains are the go-to question during press interviews. If you could play any character from any comic, who might it be? is a commonly-asked one to break the monotony of mandatory Q&A topics. The responses are a lot of fun to read; from actors who’ve never picked up a comic in their life, to those who are devout readers.

Most of the time their replies result in a whirlwind of chatter taken out of context. Today’s Squirrel Girl tidbit is one of those times, but is still a discussion-worthy matter because hello, it’s Anna Kendrick. She’s terrific, and honestly, who knows if something Might come of her Net-a-Porter interview where she dropped this little gem:

Anna Kendrick would like to play Squirrel Girl in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Net-a-Porter, Anna Kendrick was asked whether she has any interest in portraying a superhero role (a compulsory question when interviewing anyone yet to be cast in a Marvel or DC blockbuster), with the actress offering up a rather interesting response.

“My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her],” says Kendrick. “I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!”

Created by Will Murray and Steve Ditko, Doreen Green – a.k.a. Squirrel Girl – made her debut in Marvel Super Heroes #8 in 1992 and despite her rather silly name, she has some pretty effective powers including superhuman strength and agility, a prehensile tail, razor-sharp claws and of course the ability to communicate with squirrels. She’s also fought and defeated many powerful supervillains, including Doctor Doom and even Thanos.

Scott Pilgrim's Anna Kendrick Is Nuts About The Idea Of Playing Squirrel Girl For Marvel

13 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

These days it's actually surprising when someone isn't asked which comic book character they'd be interested in playing during an interview, but sometimes such pitch perfect (sorry) actor/character marriages arise from their answers that they just have to be reported on. During a chat with Net-a-Porter, Anna Kendrick was asked the magic question, and responded with the following: "My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her]. I don't know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!" Even if Marvel is kicking around the idea of a Squirrel Girl movie (or even introducing her in a different McU feature), she's probably right down the bottom of the pile - but, that doesn't mean we couldn't see it happen some day. Doreen Green was created back in the '90s as a light-hearted alternative to the overly-dramatic superheroes featured in other comics, »

Anna Kendrick: "I'd Be Terrible at Being Like Taylor Swift"

30 June 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Anna Kendrick says she is nothing like Taylor Swift when it comes to fan interactions. Swift has over the years become known for connecting with supporters online and even in person—in 2014, she invited several to her house to attend listening parties for her new album 1989. Like the singer, Kendrick also commands a large fan base, namely among girls and women, and is known for her funny and snarky Twitter posts. In a recent interview with Net-a-Porter's The Edit, the Pitch Perfect actress, who stars in the new R-rated comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, talks about how she acts with her fans.

Zac Efron, Adam DeVine Horse Around at Beer-Soaked ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’ Premiere

30 June 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brothers Mike and Dave Stangle wore thoroughly bemused looks at Wednesday’s premiere of “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” at the Arclight Hollywood, where Zac Efron and Adam DeVine portrayed the siblings in the raunchy comedy.

The Stangles originated the story in 2013 by taking out a Craigslist ad: “My brother and I are looking for wedding dates for our cousin’s wedding. We’ve been told by the bride that bringing dates is mandatory so we won’t ‘harass all of my friends all night and stay under control.’”

The ad went viral and the brothers published the book “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates: And a Thousand Cocktails” two years later. Fox’s movie, which opens July 8, makes the bride-to-be the sister of the brothers, rather than their cousin, and sets the wedding in Hawaii with Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza portraying the dates.

Mahalo to getting lei'd at movie premieres. That's what happened last night at the after party for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates—leis were handed out to guests as they arrived to the bash at Hollywood sports bar 33 Taps. The colorful accessory was in honor of the raunchy comedy's Hawaiian setting. The film's stars, including Zac Efron (still very blonde from Baywatch), Adam DeVine, Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, headed upstairs where they hung out with friends and family. Emma Stone was a surprise guest and huddled at a corner table with the movie's Sugar Lyn Beard.

Zac Efron Doesn't Need a Date For This Premiere - He's Got His Costars to Keep Him Warm

29 June 2016 9:19 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

On Wednesday evening, things got a little wacky at the La premiere of Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. Zac Efron was joined by his brood of costars - including Adam DeVine, Anna Kendrick, and Aubrey Plaza - on a fun-filled red carpet that blazed with smiles, cute poses, and more. We haven't seen much of Zac since he shot the Baywatch reboot with Dwayne Johnson, but he did have a hilarious water war with Jimmy Fallon and open up in a new Elle interview back in May. Here's hoping the Summer months are jam-packed with plenty more Zac. He doesn't even have to take off his shirt . . . although, we wouldn't complain if he did. »

Remember troll dolls, those humanoid pieces of molded plastic with heads of wispy, vibrant hair that had a permanent grin slapped on their face?

And this time they're bringing an entire movie with them. DreamWorks Animation, makers of Home and How To Train Your Dragon, are the studio behind Trolls and they just released a first trailer for it.

‘Trolls’ Trailer: Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick Embark on a Colorful Adventure

29 June 2016 11:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick band together in the first official trailer for DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox’s latest animated family adventure film.

In the first trailer for “Trolls,” fans get a first glimpse of the upcoming comedy which stars Kendrick as a euphoric and highly optimistic leader of the trolls, Poppy, and Justin Timberlake as her polar opposite, Branch.

After a terrifying creature attacks their home and kidnaps their friends and family, the two must put aside their differences and work together to save the entire troll community.

“Branch, we just got attacked by a Bergen,” Poppy says. “What’s your plan?” a grumpy Branch responds. “To rescue everyone and make it home safely,” Poppy answers while designing a cheerful pop-out book with the phrase, “We did it!!!”

“Trolls” hails from the creators of “Shrek” and is inspired by the troll dolls with colorful hair that have »
