Dan Aykroyd Still Wants To Make A “Conventional” 'Ghostbusters' Sequel, But Is Still Down With Female Gang

20 February 2015 10:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There was always that kid in school whose gum would drop out of his mouth, into the dirt, and he would pick it up, dust it off, pop it back in and go, “it’s still good.” Or, to give a more current example of desperation and denial, there’s that episode of “The Simpsons” where Homer has the spit roast pig and it’s fired through the air, through mud, dirt, garbage etc. and poor old Homer insists it’ll still be ok to eat. Dan Aykroyd is a little bit like that. Sure, a “Ghostbusters” movie is going forward and he’s happy about it, but in many ways, it’s not his “Ghostbusters” movie at all. For four or five years now, Aykroyd and a slew of different writers tried to write “Ghostbusters 3.” They did in fact several versions of it, Etan Cohen came on board to write a draft, »

13 February 2015 7:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has released another new poster for director Etan Cohen’s upcoming comedy Get Hard starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, and we have it for you right here…

When millionaire hedge fund manager James King (Will Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison.

Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to “get hard” and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other.

Get Hard is set for release on March »

SXSW Announces Their Features Lineup; Includes Feig/McCarthy's 'Spy' and Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

3 February 2015 1:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in TrainwreckPhoto: Universal Pictures With Sundance just wrapping up and Berlin starting up in a few days, we are now immersed in the year-long barrage of film festivals. One such festival in South By Southwest. A few weeks back they announced the first seven films of their program, including the opening night film Brand: A Second Coming. Today, they have revealed the rest of the features to be shown in March (except for the midnight program), and some of it has me very excited. The bigger titles announced do not do much for me. Paul Feig's Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy, and the Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart starrer Get Hard leave a lot to be desired in terms of anticipation, as does a work in progress cut of Judd Apatow's latest film Trainwreck. I'm guessing an Apatow work in progress is probably around three and a half hours. »

SXSW 2015 Adds Melissa McCarthy’s Spy, Will Ferrell’s Get Hard, Ryan Gosling’s Lost River And Many More

3 February 2015 12:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Sundance in the rear view mirror and Berlin just around the corner, another huge festival that’s now very much in mind is the 2015 South By Southwest Film Festival (SXSW 2015), to be held in Austin, Texas, this March. And this year, the lineup looks no less eclectic than in any previous year for the festival.

SXSW 2015 will see the debut of two big-studio comedies (Paul Feig’s Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy; and Etan Cohen’s Get Hard, starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart), some red-hot documentaries (none more so than Alex Gibney’s Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine) and a vast array of smaller indie titles. Intriguingly, Judd Apatow’s Amy Schumer vehicle Trainwreck will be screened as a work-in-progress.

Elsewhere, Alex Garland’s well-received Ex Machina will be making an appearance, as will Ryan Gosling’s much-maligned Lost River. And curiously, there will be a »

Kevin Hart Teaches Will Ferrell How To Get Hard In New Trailer

15 January 2015 3:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Will Ferrell has taken on the news media, Nascar, semi-pro basketball, law enforcement, Mexican drug cartels, and professional ice skating, but is he ready for the American prison system? We are about to find out with Get Hard, the latest comedy from Ferrell and new partner-in-crime Kevin Hart.

Get Hard has Ferrell playing James King, a criminal in the finance world who enlists Darnell Lewis’s (Hart) assistance to prepare him for a stint in a maximum security prison. Hart is far from a hardened criminal, but that does not stop him from milking his new friend for all he’s worth. As he tells his wife in this trailer, he’s going to be every stereotype in the book if that’s what it takes.

The latest preview showcases Ferrell’s always-amusing brand of humor, as his clueless character attempts to get in good with gang members, look and act tough, »

Let's go to prison with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart in new Get Hard trailer

15 January 2015 11:42 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The newest trailer for the questionable comedy Get Hard starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart has arrived. The movie marks the directorial debut of writer Etan Cohen (Men In Black 3, Tropic Thunder) and if you still like a good prison rape joke, there might be something here for you. While it would be very easy for some to be offended by this movie, I’m leaning towards thinking this movie is just stupid and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. That’s just me though, »

Watch: Will Ferrell And Kevin Hart Prepare For Prison In New Trailer For 'Get Hard'

15 January 2015 10:59 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's been a full day already of Oscar coverage with more to come, but now's the time for a little break. Consider this movie, one that will be nominated for zero awards ever: "Get Hard." It's the latest from comic actors Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, joining forces for what looks like an R-rated good time. Etan Cohen ("Tropic Thunder," "Idiocracy") wrote the script and makes his feature directorial debut with a story about a finance wheeler-dealer who gets busted and sentenced to prison. He's not ready for life behind bars, so he hires a young black man who he believes to be a hardened ex-con to show him the ropes. He is mistaken, the blind leads the blind, wackiness ensues. Given the leeway of an R-rating,  Ferrell and Hart seem to make the most of what looks like good, very dumb fun. "Get Hard" arrives on March 27th. Watch below. »

"I don't think they've ever seen a white person before." With the release of the Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart comedy Get Hard just over a couple months away, a second trailer has arrived. This time, we get to see a little bit more of the preparation in store for the rich bank manager (Ferrell) as he tries to toughen up before serving some time in prison with the help of his car washer (Hart), who isn't exactly a tough street thug. This time we get to see Ferrell try to join a gang that will keep him safe in prison, which makes for some amusing interaction with rapper T.I., and also an alternative way to avoid getting beat up in prison. Here's the second trailer for Etan Cohen's Get Hard from Warner Bros. Pictures: You can still watch the first trailer for Get Hard right here. Get Hard »
