Nyff 2014: ‘While We’re Young’ – The Young and the Old and the Restless

23 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While We’re Young

Written and directed by Noah Baumbach

USA,  2014

At age 45, it feels like writer-director Noah Baumbach is getting soft. Best known for his caustic tragicomedies like Kicking and Screaming, The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg, and Margot at the Wedding, he took a turn in tone for his 2012 feature Frances Ha, which starred and was co-written by Greta Gerwig. So, though the warmth of that film might surprise someone familiar with his work, that it’s a collaboration with Gerwig explains at least part of that tone. While We’re Young, though, Baumbach’s newest film which premiered at Tiff this year and made a surprise appearance at the New York Film Festival, manages to carry that affection. It’s hard to top Frances Ha, but his newest is pleasant and impressive all the same.

Middle-aged couple Josh (Ben Stiller, Baumbach alum from Greenberg) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts »

Nyff Surprise! While We're Young: Or, The Kids Are All Wrong

29 September 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Our Nyff coverage continues with Matthew Eng on this year's surprise screening -- which was less of a secret than usual this year, continually hinted at by the Nyff themselves, even spoiled ahead of time by IndieWire...

Ben Stiller & Naomi Watts star in "While We're Young"

Noah Baumbach is showing his age.

Not that this is the first time, mind you. Anyone who stuck through his exquisitely harsh and thus totally divisive Greenberg will surely remember Ben Stiller’s crusty, titular protagonist sourly announcing to a party full of fuzzed-out twentysomethings, “I hope I die before I end up meeting one of you in a job interview.”

There’s something instantly more pronounced about Baumbach’s evident unease towards the current generational divide in his latest adult dramedy, While We’re Young, in which Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts star as Josh and Cornelia, a deceptively comfortable urban couple who »

Mad Men star John Slattery boards Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2

28 September 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mad Men star John Slattery has been cast in director Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2.

Slattery is joining the upcoming comedy film in an undisclosed role, according to Entertainment Weekly.

He will be appearing alongside the recently-cast Morgan Freeman, Dennis Haysbert and Liam Neeson in the sequel to 2012's Ted.

Mark Wahlberg is back as the hapless John Bennett, while MacFarlane will provide the voice of the talking plush bear Ted.

Amanda Seyfried will appear as the new female lead, stepping in for the first movie's star Mila Kunis.

Seyfrie worked with MacFarlane on his most recent film A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Ted 2 opens on June 26, 2015 in the Us and July 10, 2015 in the UK. »

Liam Neeson Joins Ted 2

27 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Liam Neeson has once again teamed up with Seth MacFarlane, this time for the writer-director's upcoming film Ted 2. The two previously worked together on A Million Ways to Die in the West in which Neeson played the evil villain. MacFarlane revealed the news himself on Twitter saying:

"Yesterday Liam Neeson, today Morgan Freeman.  Not a bad week for #Ted2."

There's no word on how big of a part he'll play, but it might just be a cameo role since it sounds like he one shot for one day. But you never know, he could always come back for more shooting. I do hope that Neeson's part is more comedic than the last one.

Freeman has a decent sized role in the film though as a civil rights lawyer who takes Ted on as a client. Mark Wahlberg is reprising his role, and the leading lady playing opposite him is being played by Amanda Seyfried. »

So Lindsay Lohan Pitched Tina Fey a New 'Mean Girls' Sequel

26 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  Before she became a Tumblr-worthy Gif during the days of 30 Rock, Tina Fey wrote a movie during her tenure as head writer at Saturday Night Live. Mean Girls gave Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried a career jump-start, and starred the old Lindsay Lohan before her hysterical personal life became major tabloid fodder. The film celebrates its 10th anniversary in April, and it seems that Lohan is championing a sequel. While speaking to Time Out London during press rounds for her theater debut in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow, the actress stated: "I was with Tina Fey the other day and I said we should do another Mean Girls, like an older version where they’re all housewives and they’re all cheating. That would be really funny. I’ll...

Lindsay Lohan Has A Terrible Idea For A 'Mean Girls' Sequel

26 September 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are plenty of reasons Why "Mean Girls" Still Resonates 10 Years Later, not the least of which is that it's still a terrifically funny and original look high school life from a female perspective, and of course, it stars Lindsay Lohan before she was Lindsay Lohan. (And while we're at it, Amanda Seyfried, Rachel McAdams and Lizzy Caplan are among some of the other faces in that movie that went on to bigger things.) Though seven years later, a direct-to-video sequel was made featuring no one from the original, everyone politely pretends it didn't happen. But keep hope sorta alive for a followup, because LiLo has an idea. The actress recently chatted with Time Out London and revealed she pitched "Mean Girls" writer Tina Fey on an idea for a sequel. And uh, it's interesting... “People really love the movie: how do you top that? I was with Tina Fey »

Neeson Joins 'Ted 2' Cast

25 September 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Liam Neeson must have enjoyed his time on the set of Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways To Die In The West. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that the actor has boarded MacFarlane's next, Ted 2. The first Ted was a massive hit for the writer/director/actor and, while audiences didn't show much love to A Million Ways, there's still a lot of buzz around this sequel. 

Nothing is known about the plot of the film at this time, but we do know that the cast will include a returning Mark Wahlberg, as well as new faces Morgan Freeman, Amanda Seyfried, and what is sure to be a litany of celebrity cameos. Could it be that Ted gets kidnapped, and Wahlberg's John Bennett has to enlist the help of a mysterious specialist (Neeson) to track him down? Lord knows with the number of carbon copy films Neeson has been up to lately, »

Liam Neeson Joins The Cast Of Ted 2

25 September 2014 12:18 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, and all Morgan Freeman already onboard, the cast of the highly anticipated Ted 2 has grown by one, with director Seth McFarlane tweeting that Liam Neeson had just filmed scenes for the return of the foul mouthed teddy bear, the pair re-teaming after A Million Ways to Die in The West. Now this could just be a cameo, which the actor has a real knock for, with t.v.'s Life is Short, Anchormn 2, and the upcoming Entourage movie under his belt. There is no word on what the role is, but considering McFarlane's love of decades old pop culture references, could he be playing himself, and we see John Bennett put Flash Gordon to one side, and reveal his love for Krull? »

50 bizarre examples of movie tie-ins and merchandise

25 September 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Movie merchandise is big business. But some people will try and slap the name of The Avengers or Batman on anything...

Cool film stuff can be almost as fun as actually going to the movies. Think of a Batman cape, an Arnold Schwarzenegger action figure, or Goldeneye on the N64. Hell, the merchandising can often be more enjoyable than the actual film – remember how much fun the first few months of 1999 were before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was actually released?

Yet, in the chase to make a quick buck out of devoted fans, some... let's just say less relevant, movie merchandise is churned out and flogged to the public.

Here then are 50 of the strangest (not ranked in order!) – expect action figures of obscure henchmen, 16-carat gold Twilight jewellery and some truly vomit-inducing burgers…
