Mark Duplass continues to push the boundaries of both independent production and distribution. The writer-director-actor, along with director Ross Partridge and co-stars Jennifer Lafleur and Rob Corddry, debuted the independent web series “Wedlock” at SXSW in March, in a bid to shake up the way short-form content is produced and sold. Also read: Mark Duplass’ New Web Series ‘Wedlock’ Seeks to Redefine Indie TV (Exclusive Video) Six months later, the ten-episode series has been bought by Vimeo and FilmBuff in a joint distribution deal that will cover an array of video on demand platforms. The series will debut on Vimeo on Demand on September. »

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. »

Cameron Diaz (The Counselor) and Jason Segel (The Five Year Engagement) and director Jake Kasdan, who teamed up for the well-liked 2011 movie Bad Teacher, reunite in the undeniably salacious–and inferior–comedy Sex Tape.
Jay (Segel) and Annie (Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion. To get it back, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one three-hour marathon session. It seems like a great idea until they discover that their most private video has been accidentally uploaded to “the cloud” and gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure – tracking down leads, »

Day in and day out, character actors go without the recognition that superstars, blockbuster leading men and Oscar-winners get every single day. Most of the time audiences can't even be bother to learn their name, constantly pointing and saying "Hey, it's that guy!" or "It's that guy from that one thing." But some of Hollywood's character actors have had enough, and they're looking for some recognition. Entertainment Weekly has put together this powerful PSA featuring character actors like Rob Corddry, Doug Jones, Rob Huebel and more, making sure you know who they are, and they deserve to be called by their name. Here's EW's important message from the character actors of Hollywood: Donald Faison, Matt Walsh, David Costabile, Silas Weir Mitchell, Anthony Stewart Head, Donal Logue and Mark Evan Jackson aren't anywhere near covering all the various actors who don't gain the fame of actors like Tom Hanks. Though this PSA is tongue-in-cheek in nature, »

Well, it turns out that a hot tub time machine can do more than travel backwards in time, and it might have a mind of its own, as we learn in the e new red-band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2. As the Repairman states: “The hot tub doesn’t take you where you want to go, it takes you where you need to go.”
In the new red-band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2, the sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine (2010), Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke (we’re already skeptical due to the absence of John Cusack, who has been replaced by Adam Scott) are living the high life after Lou (Corddry) altered their futures at the end of the first film. But when a would-be assassin attempts to kill Lou, they must use the hot tub again to save his life by preventing the attempt on Lou’s life. »

Standing in the press line for Paramount this year proved to be a great time at the Con. It is always a pleasure to talk with Clark Duke. The actor will soon be appearing in Hot Tub Time Machine 2 along with Adam Scott, Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson. We.ve been able to sit down with this fine fellow nearly every year at Comic Con and it is always a good thing. While it may be a bit of time before we get to soak in the time traveling hot tub . scheduled release is December 25th . you can »
Nobody will ever have the balls to remake Back to the Future or The Terminator. They are the untouchable time travel classics. And without them we couldn’t have a movie like Hot Tub Time Machine, which paid it all back in homage in ways that wouldn’t make a lot of sense for people unfamiliar with those earlier cultural staples (and who’d just be confused now if there were multiples of them). Not a whole lot about the 2010 comedy mirrors Bttf, yet the ending has a similar, albeit more extreme, case of the present being altered for the better thanks to changes made via a trip to the past. The movie concludes with a brilliant joke: Rob Corddry‘s character has used his knowledge of the future (present) to invent Google before Google (he calls it “Lou-gle”). Sorry to spoil that for anyone who hasn’t seen the first Httm already, but »

Paramount Pictures brought their slate of upcoming releases to Comic-Con 2014 yesterday, including the R rated comedy Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Clark Duke arrived to represent the film in Hall H with two beautiful women at his side, before letting the Hot Tub Time Machine 2 red band trailer unspool for the first time, which brings the gang back together for an adventure into the future. Check out selected moments from the panel, with Clark Duke giving an interview immediately afterwards. You can also check out the trailer if you missed it yesterday.
Set 10 years after the original, Rob Corddry's character Lou is now a billionaire, after using the time machine to change Google to Lougle. The story centers on Nick (Craig Robinson) and Jacob (Clark Duke) who use the time machine to try and get back to the past after Lou gets in trouble, but they inadvertently end up in the future, »
Fire up the hot tub, because we’ve got the official red-band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2! The sequel to one of the surprise comedy hits of 2010 finds three (Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke) of the four (sorry, no John Cusack this time out) original cast members returning for another trip through time and space. Laughs, nudity and outlandish situations are sure to follow. The lengthy new red-band trailer (which is not safe for work) reveals what’s happened to our leads since their first adventure. When Lou (who has apparently become the “father of the Internet”) is shot by an unknown assailant, the boys have to fire up the time machine again to save their friend. Lots of hilarious mishaps follow. Recapturing the lightning-in-a-bottle...

Rob Corddry (Sex Tape), “The Office”’s Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke (Kick-Ass 2) are back as the rag tag, drunken group of time-travelling best friends in their sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine. After living out their lives through the 90s and 00s, Lou (Corddry), Nick (Robinson), and Jacob (Duke) have abused the system, pretending that, yes, they really did write that Lisa Loeb song, and they’re totally the inventors of the Internet.
But something, of course, goes terribly wrong, and Adam Scott takes the vacated seat of John Cusack (no!) in the hot tub to prevent some “future crime.” The boys aren’t going back to the 1980s, but rather, they’re going to the future – to 2024.

Having booked an appointment with Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite, Hospital docs Rob Corddry and Rob Huebel at first account for the absence of the rest of their cast/staff (“They don’t like nerds,” Huebel suggests), before launching into a free-flowing, partly improv’d accounting of Season 6′s cavalcade of guest stars — including but far from limited »
I actually wasn't even aware that a sequel was in the works! But say hello to "Hot Tub Time Machine 2," the sequel to the 2010 film "Hot Tub Time Machine," directed by Steve Pink, from a script penned by Josh Heald. What's it about? Well, it's called "Hot Tun Time Machine." The film stars Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, Rob Corddry, Chevy Chase, Gillian Jacobs, and Clark Duke. It is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2014. This time, our friends Nick (Craig Robinson) and Jacob (Clark Duke) use the time traveling hot tub to try and get back to the past to save Lou (Rob Corddry), after he is shot, but they inadvertently end up ten years in the »

Paramount has premiered the first trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2, which will be hitting theaters this coming Christmas, bringing back the majority of the cast members from the first one including Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Adam Scott, Chevy Chase and Gillian Jacobs. Sorry, no John Cusack. The 2010 original followed a group of best friends who've become bored with their adult lives: Adam (John Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Corddry) is a party guy who can't find the party; Nick's (Robinson) wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob (Duke) won't leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads' pounding, in the year 1986. It's their chance to kick some past and change their futures. There isn't an official synopsis for the sequel just yet, but I don't think it's going to »
