"While We're Young" is a tale of two Brooklyns for Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomie Watts) and Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried). For Oscar-winning production designer Adam Stockhausen ("The Grand Budapest Hotel"), who just finished "Bridge of Spies" with Steven Spielberg, it was a return to home in New York after five years of working elsewhere. But with a different character-driven design approach. Read More: First Look at Steven Spielberg's Cold War Thriller "Bridge of Spies" "The idea was to go find it, so I started way before we officially began looking for locations," Stockhausen said. "I was at the Bushwick Open Studios in Brooklyn, where artists in the neighborhood open their doors. And so many people are living and working in the same space that we get to peek inside their lives. And I actually walked into the apartment that we ended up using for Jamie and Darby's apartment. »

Sometimes the soundtrack to a Noah Baumbach movie can be more exciting than the film itself. He, like his contemporaries Sofia Coppola and Wes Anderson, is obsessive about making sure the music in his films carries the story. This is especially true of While We're Young, his new film about 40-somethings who realize the stuff of their childhood is now considered "vintage," starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried, and Ad-Rock. The music in While We're Young is some of the most eclectic you'll hear on any Baumbach soundtrack, as it pits the old against the new — what was kind of lame then, but totally cool now. Baumbach reunited with LCD Soundsystem front man James Murphy to put the soundtrack together, and on an unseasonably cold spring day in New York, he told Vulture about the prized possessions in his personal collection, and what movie soundtrack makes him cry. »

At this time 12 months ago, Naomi Watts was coming off back to back indie misfires "Diana" (possibly one of the worst choices of her career) and "Adore." Sadly, the sheen of her second Oscar nomination for the global smash "The Impossible" only a year earlier was starting to fade. What a difference a year makes. Watts earned a surprise Supporting Actress nomination at the SAG Awards for the indie hit "St. Vincent" in December. The following month she took home her first SAG statue as part of the ensemble for Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," one of many ensemble honors she earned for the critically acclaimed drama. In February she took the stage with Iñárritu and her co-stars to celebrate "Birdman's" Best Picture win at the Academy Awards (the first Best Picture on her resume). And there's more! Last weekend she joined the "Divergent" franchise and "Insurgent's" $52.2 million debut »

On my way to the While We’re Young press day to talk to Amanda Seyfried I checked my Timehop app and it told me that exactly five years ago to the day, I ran my very first interview with her for the movie Chloe. That certainly made for a sobering reminder of how long I’ve been at it, but perhaps it’s kind of appropriate to walk into an interview for a movie like this with that in mind. The film stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a happy couple who suddenly realize that something is missing. Their best friends are gearing up to have a baby, but instead of supporting them, they become infatuated with a younger couple, Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Seyfried). They’re fun-loving, easy going, and Josh and Cornelia find their care-free lifestyle invigorating. During my interview with Seyfried »

<< Continued from "Forecast: 'Get Hard,' 'Home' Could Be in Tight Race This Weekend"Playing at 3,708 locations, Home is the 31st feature-length movie from DreamWorks Animation, and their sixth under their distribution deal with 20th Century Fox. Their first title together was The Croods, which was a hit with $187.2 million. Since then, though, the track record at the domestic box office has been spotty at best. Turbo was a flop with $83 million, while Mr. Peabody & Sherman disappointed with $111.5 million. Last Summer, the second How to Train Your Dragon wound up earning 19 percent less than its predecessor. That drop paled in comparison to Penguins of Madagascar, which was off a whopping 62 percent from the previous movie in that franchise. After that miss, DreamWorks opted to reshape their upcoming lineup: they dropped from three to two movies per year, and are only releasing a single movie (Home) in 2015. Will Home return »

This weekend, Will Ferrell turns to Kevin Hart to prep him for prison in the (very) R-rated comedy "Get Hard," an alien on the run lands on Earth and makes friends with an adventurous child in the animated "Home," and a middle-aged couple (Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts) has their lives overturned when they meet a disarming young couple (Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried) in "While We're Young."

"The Salt of the Earth" follows world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado as he embarks on the discovery of pristine territories and grandiose landscapes to capture the planet's beauty in his latest photographic project. In "The Riot Club," two first-year Oxford students join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed in a single evening. The film stars Sam Claflin, »

In While We’re Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds. His protagonists are sad 40-somethings Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts), who can’t have kids and grow increasingly alienated from their child-centric friends, but who meet a pair of 20-something hipsters, Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), and discover an exhilarating new design for living. Josh and Cornelia are dimly aware — especially at first — of how ridiculous they look trailing breathlessly behind flaky kids 20 years their junior. But they’re invigorated by the company and elated by the sudden sense of what’s possible. For much of the film, the often-bilious Baumbach stakes his claim on the wobbly-but-fertile border between mockery and sympathy. He seems to have found his inner Paul Mazursky, the satirist who can poke fun at his characters’ foolish self-delusions »

One word: swoon. Working one of the most intricate double French braid updos we've seen in a minute, Amanda Seyfried stepped out to premiere her latest film, While We're Young, in NYC on Monday, March 23. The 29-year-old actress teamed her ladylike, crimson Valentino dress and matching red sandals with the edgy updo, courtesy of celeb hairstylist Renato Campora. "When I saw Amanda's dress, I knew I wanted the hair to feel youthful, playful, and innocent," Campora, who’s also crafted some of Katy Perry and Jessica Chastain's best hairstyles, [...] »
The provocative emotional danger every up-and-coming generation poses on even its immediate predecessor, particularly as society swiftly changes, can be an equally harrowing and enthralling process. As people are forced to contend with the unexpected and fast changes the current youth introduces into their lives, especially in the areas of technology and culture, they must learn to accept the fact that they no longer have endless possibilities in front of them, and must now be established in their careers and relationships. That entrancing exploration into how people act when they’re at their most basic human element is powerfully explored in writer-director-producer Noah Baumbach’s new comedy-drama, ‘While We’re Young,’ which is [ Read More ]

Ted 2 won't be released until the summer, but it looks like the ball is already rolling on the third instalment of the comedy series.
Sam Jones, aka Flash Gordon, who made a cameo in the original Seth MacFarlane film and returns for the second, spilled the beans when he revealed that he "just signed on" for the third film.
"We're moving onwards and upwards, it's wonderful. It's a great adventure at this time in my life," he added.
Jones wasn't able to divulge more information on the film, saying: "We haven't filmed Ted 3 yet."
Ted 2 sees the MacFarlane-voiced stuffed bear having to prove to a court of law that he is human in order to maintain custody of his newborn child.
Just like the characters in any one of his movies, Noah Baumbach emanates love and knowledge of movies and music from the past and present. But lacking the bombastic affectation of many of his characters, Baumbach is actually quite pleasant to talk with about art and pop culture. After a friendly quip about staying in “the mindset” for press interviews, Baumbach delved into his latest dissertation on the ubiquitous obsession with youth, “While We’re Young” which stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as an older couple who become enamored by a vibrant youthful pair of artists played by Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver. The film also co-stars Charles Grodin, former Beastie Boy Adam Horowitz (aka Ad-Rock — read our interview with him here), as an aging dad, and the movie is a wickedly funny look at youth, aging, art, and more (read our review). The writer-director spoke readily about creating his latest and funniest film, »

Noah Baumbach says Academy Award Best Costume Design winner Ann Roth "has a way of dressing people - that you can't put your finger on." Roth won for Anthony Minghella's The English Patient, starring Ralph Fiennes, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe and Kristin Scott Thomas and is a BAFTA honoree for John Schlesinger's The Day Of The Locust, which starred Donald Sutherland, Karen Black and Burgess Meredith. Roth also received Oscar nominations for her work on Robert Benton's Places In The Heart and again with Minghella for The Talented Mr. Ripley.

While We’re Young
Written and directed by Noah Baumbach
Noah Baumbach’s last few films have been about protagonists doing nothing, or at least trying to give the illusion of doing something. Ben Stiller’s Greenberg said as much, even while slowly building a doghouse for his brother. Greta Gerwig’s Frances Halloway was a professional dancer who didn’t dance to the point that it made her “undateable”. Baumbach’s latest film While We’re Young is about yet another form of stagnation: middle age. A married couple of forty-somethings encounter a married couple of twenty-somethings, and that illusion that they’re doing everything they’re meant to be doing at this age quickly fades away.
This sort of generational crisis fits Baumbach’s mentality like a glove, or perhaps a stylish, hipster fedora. Though While We’re Young feels like more of a studio project in comparison to Frances Ha, »

This weekend, a middle-aged couple (Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts) has their lives overturned when they meet a disarming young couple (Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried) in "While We're Young," directed by Noah Baumbach ("The Squid and the Whale," "Margot at the Wedding").

Amanda Seyfried debuted a fierce new look for the "While We’re Young" Premiere on Monday in New York City. The 29-year-old actress rocked a flirty, long-sleeved red Valentino dress with Givenchy shoes -- but it wasn’t the dress that stole the show, it was her new stylish ‘do. We are so used to seeing the "Mean Girls" star showing off her long blonde locks, but last night, celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora decided to switch things up. The actress rocked a double French braid wound into a bun … and nailed it! "When I saw Amanda’s dress, I knew I wanted the hair to feel youthful, playful and innocent," Campora tells Glamour. "I decided on French braids but still wanted to maintain a bit of sophistication and structure." Seyfried’s latest film hits theaters March 27 … and we’ll be obsessing over this new look until then! What do you think of her bold ‘do? »

The Noah Baumbach comedy “While We’re Young” premiered at New York’s Paris Theatre on Monday night with stars Ben Stiller and Amanda Seyfried. The indie, which was picked up by A24 out of Toronto, follows a struggling documentary filmmaker (Stiller) who befriends two younger Brooklyn hipsters (Adam Driver and Seyfried). Naomi Watts, who didn’t attend the premiere, plays Stiller’s wife.
The film shot in New York last year, both in Upstate and throughout Brooklyn (including Williamsburg and Greenpoint). “I hadn’t spent a lot of time in Brooklyn,” Stiller said. “I’m from the Upper West Side. I remember going to Brooklyn as a kid, and the neighborhoods are always very exotic to me and so different.” Stiller said he didn’t absorb much about hipster culture during the shoot. “I feel like it’s all ridiculous the way people are categorizing it,” said Stiller. “People are doing their thing, »

Whilst promoting his new film While We’re Young, Ben Stiller has spoken about the long-awaited comedy sequel Zoolander 2, which has begun pre-production in Rome and Paris in recent weeks. Speaking to ComingSoon, Stiller shed some light on the project and why it has taken so long to come to the screen after many false starts:
Zoolander, which was released in 2001, only managed a $60 million gross back then, but has developed an Anchorman-like cult following since, leading many fans to call for a sequel. And the wait is almost over, with Owen Wilson and Christine Taylor also returning for the sequel, and Will Ferrell reportedly set to join them.
While We’re Young, directed by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha), stars Stiller, Naomi Watts (Birdman), Adam Driver (Girls) and Amanda Seyfried (Ted 2), and is released in the Us on Friday, and UK on April 3rd.
