20th Century Fox made a few tweaks to its schedule today, shifting Independence Day 2 from the crowded July 1, 2016 release date to June 24, 2016, while moving Hitman: Agent 47 up nearly six months from February 27, 2015 to August 28, 2015.
Independence Day 2, which is reportedly bringing back Jeff Goldblum to star, would have faced Sony's Angry Birds, Disney's The Bfg and Warner Bros.' Tarzan on July 1, but now it only has to contend with Universal's Untitled Mummy Reboot one week earlier. No story details have been given for Independence Day 2, which will not feature the return of Will Smith .
Hitman: Agent 47, which stars Rupert Friend as the title character, will now face the Dimension Films thriller Regression on August 28, 2015, instead of going up against Warner Bros.' Focus and The Transporter Legacy on February 27, 2015. The plot is based on the video game of the same name, which follows a sole assassin who works for a sinister corporation. »
This isn't all that surprising. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is now foregoing its original December 25th, 2014 release date and moving to February 20th. This makes sense for a few reasons, the first of which is that it needs to get out of the way of Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview, which is shaping up to be something of a comedic juggernaut (at least in terms of my perception - it feels like awareness is high for that one). Also telling? My first thought when I saw this news was, "that was supposed to come out on Christmas?" It doesn't feel like they've been aggressively marketing the movie (aside from the trailer) and I feel like February is safer ground for this franchise anyway. Paramount also moved Scouts vs. Zombies from that date and placed it on October 30th, 2015, also a move of confidence in that horror comedy it looks like. »

I love Michael Bay. I unironicly think he is a great artist. And from everything I’ve read, heard and even personally seen, I think he’s a hilarious person. He’s almost like an exagerated cartoon character version of what you might expect. Sometimes I think he plays into the persona, that his behavior can be an […]

Vimeo is making a large investment in original content, and now, viewers who visit the site's Vimeo On Demand platform can purchase one of its biggest bets to date. Wedlock, a romantic comedy web series starring Rob Corddry, Mark Duplass, and Jennifer Lafleur, is now available. Wedlock stars Duplass and Lafleur as a pair of friends who decide they want to fall in love and become a couple. Their strategy for finding love involves rules, impressions, and rigorous schedule, and it drives their therapist--played by Corddry--up the wall. A trailer for the series is now available on Vimeo. Wedlock's impending arrival on Vimeo was confirmed two weeks before the show's release, when it was the subject of a report by TheWrap.

If you're a fan for Sleepless in Seattle-esque tales of all-consuming love at first sight, you're probably going to hate Wedlock. The couple at the center of the Ross Partridge-directed web series aren't falling in love -- they're carefully calculating every step to it. Mark Duplass and Jennifer Lafleur star as two friends who, now that they're getting older, want to logically, systematically and not even a little bit romantically get married. They even have a handbook. Rob Corddry stars as their couples therapist, who, despite his reservations, guide them on their quest session by strange, strange session. »

Having previously teamed up for 2011’s Bad Teacher, director Jake Kasdan reunites with Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel for R-rated comedy Sex Tape. Though it starts strong and finishes well, script flaws mean it’s unfunny for the majority of its run time, squandering the potential of a great cast and an entertaining premise.
Segel and Diaz play Jay and Annie, a married couple whose sex life has dulled in the ten years they’ve been together. With the kids out of the house, the two eventually decide to rekindle their intimacy by making a video of themselves trying out every position in ‘The Joy of Sex’. Though the gambit works, Annie and Jay soon discover that their private video has gone public.
That’s a perfectly fine setup, and the opening act is a strong one too. Crucially the film doesn’t begin, as so many others in the genre do, »

Director: Jake Kasdan.
Running Time: 94 minutes.
Synopsis: A couple hoping to reignite their sex lives decide to make a sex tape. Unfortunately the tape is accidentally uploaded to The Cloud and syncs with a set of iPads the couple handed out at Christmas. They soons find themselves attempting to retrieve the iPads and delete the video.
Despite the lurid sadness of recent events involving private material and The Cloud, there must be at least one person wringing their hands with delight over at Sony. Suddenly it’s made their film ‘of the moment’ with its finger on the pulse of the current climate surrounding privacy and the internet. That’s just a stroke of luck though, as this film is essentially an idea with nowhere to go. The idea of a personal moment being captured and made available »

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel get themselves into a rather tricky position in Sex Tape, in more ways than one. The two bounced off each other pretty well in Bad Teacher and apparently, that was enough to convince director Jake Kasdan to throw them together again and cut loose with some cheeky nudity and a naughty premise and the end result is a flabby, largely unfunny comedy. Awkward...
Right away, the couple are seen getting up close and very personal, but those were the good old days fondly recalled by Annie (Diaz) who now writes a parenting blog between chores, sleep and sexual frustration. Her now-husband Jay (Segel) has resorted to booking appointments for possible nookie and when they do find the time, it's all friction and no sparks. »
