I never saw Joe Dirt because it didn't look the least bit funny and for the same reason I have no interest in seeing Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, which just premiered its first trailer today, being sure to highlight a couple members of the cast including Christopher Walken and Patrick Warburton, but the main focus is the title character played once again by David Spade. According to IMDb the story will follow Joe Dirt back in time where he becomes rich because he knows the future, though I can't seem to find any confirmation of that. What we do know is Brittany Daniel, Dennis Miller, Adam Beach and Mark McGrath co-star. Check out the trailer and poster below. EW yt id="_f0RJxNyOgo" width="640" »

We just haven't seen enough from Ted 2 yet! And it's only a few months away from hitting theater screens across the country this summer. But that all changes courtesy of the MTV Movie Awards, which has just debuted the first clip from the anticipated sequel. We also get to see Mark Wahlberg introducing this sneak peek while at a mini-golf course, as he torments his MTV host with the ball, trying to stuff it in his mouth.
The clip itself features both Mark Wahlberg and Ted, voiced once again by writer and director Seth MacFarlane. It also introduces a new character played by incoming love interest Amanda Seyfried. John Bennett and Ted have sought out the help of a lawyer, and the duo quickly spiral into a riff-off on law terminology. While the clip itself is somewhat short, we do get a sense of what we can expect from »
Indie ‘toon Animal Crackers already boasts Ian McKellen and Sylvester Stallone for an unexpected team-up as part of its cast. Now co-directors Scott Christian Sava and Tony Bancroft have announced that real-life married couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are also lending their voices.Animal Crackers follows a family, led by Blunt and Krasinski’s Zoe and Owen Huntington who inherit a ramshackle circus. When they partake of the titular biscuits, they find themselves transformed into animals and other characters, which we feel is a plotline that 1998’s Armageddon sorely missed out on.“When Emily and John came in and performed their first scenes of the movie together... It was magic,” Sava, who also co-wrote the script with Dean Lorey, tells Screen International. “I can think of no other way of describing what they brought to the film. We had to literally go back and re-storyboard the sequences because they »

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.

What It's About: Continuing the Star Wars »
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.
