With director Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ dramedy The Kings of Summer (formerly Toy’s House) opening May 31st, CBS Films has provided us with four clips. The plot centers on Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and Biaggio (Moises Arias), three teenagers who are fed up with their parents and decide to live in a house they build in the woods. Reported missing, the boys enjoy an idyllic summer until their friendship begins to strain from mistrust and jealousy. The film landed great reviews at Sundance, and I can tell you it's definitely worth seeing, as it's a very unique coming of age story with some great performances. The film also stars Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Megan Mullally. Hit the jump to watch the clips, and look for some exclusive video interviews with the cast and Vogt-Roberts during the week of release. For more on The Kings of Summer, watch the trailer, »

Should her negotiations go smoothly, Blunt would join Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Tony winner James Corden and, perhaps, Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine in the film. On Tuesday, it was revealed that Gyllenhaal and Pine were circling roles in the film. (Funny how development news and movie releases go together: Pine was attached to both "Into the Woods" and "Z for Zachariah" during the same week "Star Trek Into Darkness" hit theaters. It's almost like they planned this!)
Back to Blunt, however, who has no such film releases to worry about this week: Per Variety, which broke the news of her involvement, Blunt would play the Baker's Wife in the film. It's a lead role, as "Into The Woods" focuses on the Baker and the Baker's Wife, »

On paper, the most compelling aspect of CBS Films' upcoming "The Kings of Summer," directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts ("Successful Alcoholics"), is the array of beloved television stars populating its cast list. Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation"), Alison Brie ("Community" and "Mad Men"), Mary Lynn Rajskub ("24") and Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace") all appear in the 2013 Sundance favorite. But the movie's main focus is on three young boys who try to build a house in the woods and live there for the summer. It sounds exactly like something Offerman's Ron Swanson would do, but Ron Swanson isn't the one doing it. The film's marketing campaign has largely avoided using the more familiar faces of these supporting players, instead focusing on identifiable elements of youthful rebellion. This and the appeal of outdoor summer adventures are the focus of four new images released today, exclusive to Indiewire. Check them out below -- "The Kings of Summer »

During the "Wtf" podcast with Marc Maron on Wednesday, May 8, Alison Brie stopped by. ANd instead of talking about "Community" or "Mad Men," the hot topics were religion, nudity and high school drama.
Brie says in college, at the California Institute of the Arts, she would "put on a pair of tennis shoes and that's it. And then like go run outside."
"We had a room that was on the first floor of the dorms, so I would like run by our big window and like swing from the tree ... not attractive nudity," says Brie.
Later in the podcast, she says she's just waiting for nude photos of herself to surface.
"I know there's gotta be some naked photos somewhere," says Brie. "I just keep waiting for them to surface ... I don't think that I present myself as a person who's never taken naked photos. I'm more like, 'Maybe I »
Just to be clear, we don't have the naked photos of Alison Brie in question. No one has them, no one except for Alison's friend, but they do exist. And isn't that knowledge enough?If it isn't, then listen to Alison describe what exactly the photos look like. Then you'll change your tune:"I know naked photos exist of me from this trip with friends to Lake Tahoe. I would take off all my clothes and go run outside and be like a little wood nymph and get on a weird exercise machine." What weird exercise machine? Be like a little wood nymph how? We need more details, Alison Brie, even if it's just you talking more about nude photos in general."I know there's got to be some naked photos somewhere. I just keep waiting for them to surface. I don't think that I present myself as a person who's never taken naked photos. »

Jordan Vogt-Roberts directs the film nominated for the Grand Jury Peize at this year's Sundance Film Festival, which is written by Chris Galletta. The film opens in theater on May 31st. The Kings of Summer is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends – Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) - who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents’ rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family - whether it is the one you’re born into or the one »
Yes, Alison Brie is talking about nude pictures. "I know naked photos exist of me from this trip with friends to Lake Tahoe," the Mad Men and Community star revealed to comedian Marc Maron on his Wtf podcast while recalling a post-college getaway. "I would take off all my clothes and go run outside and be like a little wood nymph and get on a weird exercise machine." But the 30-year-old actress doesn't seem too concerned if such shots were to get leaked. "I know there's got to be some naked photos somewhere. I just keep waiting for them to surface," she said nonchalantly, while also noting: "I don't think that I present myself as a person who's never taken naked »
There are two things you should know about "The Kings of Summer," if you haven't already heard of it. First, back when it was called "Toy's House" at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, it was a huge crowd pleaser and one of the favorites of Park City.
Second, it stars some serious comedy talent that you might know from NBC's Thursday night line-up, including the awesome husband-wife duo of Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally from "Parks and Recreation" and Alison Brie from "Community."
In this exclusive clip from the film, which opens in theaters on May 31, Offerman and Brie play a father and daughter, who get some Chinese take-out. Much to the chagrin of Offerman's character, the wontons that come with the food are too big to eat, leading to a confrontation with the delivery man.

One of the must see movies of the year is a little indie film called Kings of Summer. I saw this movie up at Sundance, and I freakin' loved it! It was a very well written, acted, and directed coming-of-age comedy that you're sure to enjoy. It's ridiculously charming. A new featurette has been released that includes new footage from the film and features the cast talking about the movie and the characters they play.

Joe Toy (Nick Robinson) is fed up with his life at home. His older sister is moving away and he can’t bear the thought of spending the whole summer at home alone with his father (Nick Offerman), who we first meet mercilessly chastising Joe for masturbating in the shower. Ever since his mother died his dad hasn’t been the same – to the extent that Joe regularly calls the police to report him as a missing person. Their comic interplay is fantastic, but the characters are clearly having a lot less fun around each other then the audience are watching them – so Joe decides to run away.
His best friend Patrick (Super 8’s Gabriel Basso) has the opposite problem with his parents. They’re too nice, too overbearing. It doesn’t take much for Joe to convince Patrick to join him on his summer escapade, while another strange »

Goddammit. I don’t know what to say about “Advanced Introduction To Finality.” I’m not speechless, exactly. It’s more of a case of not having anything nice to say/not saying anything at all. After writing my Point/Counterpoint with Margaret Lyons yesterday and listening to Alison Brie on Marc Maron’s Wtf podcast today, I was really rooting for Community to pull off a fantastic season finale. I was let down.“Advanced Introduction To Finality” rolls into town like an estranged father, grasping at vague memories of what he imagines might interest his now-grown child. “You used to love science-fiction storylines, right? Well I got you a science fiction storyline!” And we, the audience, avert our eyes embarrassed. “Dad, this plot is a mess. Did you write it on coke or something?” It was as if Mickey Rourke’s character from The Wrestler wrote this episode for his long lost daughter. »

In many ways, "Community" Season 4 has been a multi-episode ode to the show's past. So it's fitting that the show's final confirmed episode would be a sequel to Season 3's "Remedial Chaos Theory." Yes, the Darkest Timeline is back. And it's not happy with reality.
At least there is a reality. Throughout most of this finale, "Advanced Introduction to Finality," I was more than a little concerned that "Community" had finally and suddenly given up on the idea of keeping this crazy show grounded in the real world. Thank goodness -- a "Community" un-moored by reality would rapidly fall apart.
And, quite frankly, the Darkest Timeline was never meant to be more than fantasy.

Not too long ago, the first trailer for the much buzzed about Sundance comedy The Kings of Summer debuted. While it's certainly an entertaining introduction to the film, it's not quite as representative of the heart and touching story at the center of the film that makes it such a charming, coming-of-age tale for people of all ages. However, this new featurette for the film does a pretty good job of looking at some of the characters, complete with cast interviews with Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Alison Brie, Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso and Moises Arias, talking about improvised takes, and more. Watch below! Here's the new featurette for Jordan Vogt-Roberts' The Kings of Summer from Yahoo: Toy's House is about three teens who decide to ditch their parents and build a house to live in on their own in the nearby forest. Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso and Moises Arias star, »

• He might be King of the North to some, but Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden (he plays Robb Stark on the HBO series) is about to reach a whole new demographic when he takes on the role of Prince Charming in Disney’s live-action adaptation of Cinderella. Downton Abbey’s Lily James will play the title role in the Kenneth Branagh-directed film, with Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother. With a script from Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada), we’re starting to get excited to see what Branagh does with the film, and to finally see »

Twitter bios are tricky. Unlike tweets, which have an ephemeral quality to them, the bios that go under the user's handle are meant to describe "yourself in 160 characters or less." When it comes to celebrities whom everyone knows everything about, that's an even more complicated task.
That's why some go the comedic route.
Look below for a mix of hilarity, irony and pure wit ... that's not always intentional.

Modern Warfare Season one, episode 23
Community's first big parody: an out-of-control paintball fight on the Greendale campus that references Die Hard, Terminator, The Warriors and more
"What I love about Modern Warfare is that it starts out very grounded. It's rooted in reality, but then it's not afraid to go really conceptual and high art. It's all about early registration. The winner of the paintball contest gets early registration to classes. Joel McHale's character Jeff Winger wakes up one hour later, and the campus is a wasteland, not unlike Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later. And from there it's all about survival. My favourite part of filming the episode was my character [sociopathic Spanish teacher Señor Chang] getting to do a John Woo entrance, »
