Rob Corddry, Kal Penn and Matt Barr have joined The Layover, William H. Macy’s road-trip comedy.

Strip down to your skivvies and fire up the jets because Paramount Home Entertainment is bringing the raunchy comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 19 in a new "Hotter and Wetter Unrated Cut."
Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry are back for more time traveling shenanigans in the sequel to the goofy comedy hit. The film misfired at the box office with only $12 million in domestic tickets sales, but Paramount knew what they were getting into seeing as how the sequel had a budget roughly 1/3 of the original.
The Blu-ray combo edition of Hot Tub Time Machine 2 will be presented in 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-hd Master Audio. Bonus features are fairly robust as you see below:

“Ballers” premieres on June 21 after season two of “True Detective” and before the debut of another freshman series, “The Brink.”

HBO has already created a lot of buzz this week with the much-anticipated season premiere of Game of Thrones coming this Sunday and its release of a new trailer for True Detective’s second season. Now the network has unveiled the first trailer for its new Dwayne Johnson-led series Ballers, which appears to be a hybrid of Any Given Sunday, Entourage, and Friday Night Lights. The 30-minute dramedy will begin its 10-episode run in June.
The Miami-set show will center on a former football superstar (Johnson) who reinvents himself after retirement by mentoring current and former players on the art of surviving the business of football. The series also stars Rob Corddry, Rmar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, Arielle Kebble, and John David Washington, who is a former college football player and the son of Denzel Washington. Friday Night Lights alum Peter Berg helmed the pilot »

Here’s the initial trailer for HBO’s new half-hour series about current and former pro football players. Dwayne Johnson stars as Spencer Strasmore, one of the retirees. Cast also features Omar Benson Miller, John David Washington, Rob Corddry, Troy Garity, Donovan Carter, Jazmyn Simon, Taylor Cole and LeToya Luckett. Johnson is exec producing along with Pain And Gain co-star Mark Wahlberg, Wahlberg's manager Steve Levinson who wrote the pilot, showrunner Even Reilly, and… »
HBO has released the first trailer for its upcoming summer series Ballers, starring Dwayne Johnson in his first major TV role. Ballers Season 1, which will span 10 episodes, debuts Sunday, June 21 at 10 Pm Et, following the Season 2 premiere of True Detective at 9 Pm Et. Dwayne Johnson stars as a former pro football player, which is fitting since, before his WWE and his acting days, he played college football at the University of Miami.
Ballers examines the lives of former and current football players. The show follows former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson) as he gets his life on track in retirement while mentoring other current and former players through the daily grind of the business of football, although he is now struggling in his new career as a financial advisor. In his new role, he tries to advise his NFL friends financially and professionally, but identifies with the trials they are »
After releasing the first trailer for new comedy The Brink this morning, HBO has now unveiled the first Ballers trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming series. Created and executive produced by Steve Levinson (Entourage, Boardwalk Empire), the show stars Johnson as a former football superstar who gets his life on track in retirement by mentoring other current players. The show very much looks to have a strong Entourage vibe, making swell use of its Miami location and ensemble cast. The main draw here is that Dwayne Johnson has his own TV series, so that’s reason enough to tune in. Though it’s a half-hour series, it looks like Ballers will also delve into a bit of drama—that’s not uncommon at HBO, though, where only 50% of its “comedies” are straight-up comedies. The series also boasts Friday Night Lights alum and feature film director Peter Berg as an executive producer alongside Mark Wahlberg, »

Johnson’s character may be retired, but the show will feature flashbacks with him in uniform and unleashing pain on unsuspecting quarterbacks. Also Read: Dwayne. »

If the words “Ball Juice” and “Hot Tub” get you all excited, then you’re in for a treat with the sequel nobody asked for. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has arrived, in what is obvious glitch in the space time continuum. The movie continues more or less where the original left off with our hapless fuck wits being incredibly successful and wealthy, after changing history in the last movie. Craig Robinson, Clarke Duke and Rob Corddry all reprise their roles with the obvious exception of John Cusack who appears in a photograph only. Robinson’s character Nick, is after recording every huge pop track in history and taking all the credit, and Lou (Corddry) has invented Lougle, with Jacob (Duke) being his long suffering son of sorts. When Lou finds himself in a spot of bother, the unlikely trio find themselves once again time travelling in a hot tub »

Not so much a movie as a mismatched mix of dick jokes and rampant homophobia. I’m kidding: There aren’t any actual jokes here. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): hated the first movie
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
It’s not so much a movie as a collection of dick jokes and — and this is mildly interesting, in a way psychologically revealing of the creators — rampant homophobia, as if what we’re intended to hear is “Hey! You! Look at my penis! Unless you’re a dude, that would be gross.” Or maybe it’s “My penis is awesome! But not in a gay way!” Wait, I lie: There aren’t any actual jokes in Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Scenes sort of ramble on for long, humor-free minutes, getting nowhere near a joke, or even near the setup for a potential punchline. »

2010's Hot Tub Time Machine came as a pleasant surprise. What looked like a dreadful frat-boy comedy with a silly premise was actually a genuinely funny and (at times) clever sci-fi comedy. It was only a matter of time for a sequel to be made, but has it come five years too late?
The sequel picks up where the first instalment left off, in a fantasy world where Lou (Rob Corddry) invented Google and Nick (Craig Robinson) has ripped off loads of pop songs years before they were meant to come out.
Sadly, John Cusack sat this one out as Adam, which is a shame as he brought a certain essence of seniority and was the gang's de facto leader. Without him there is a small void and the three main »
