A new trailer has debuted for Mark Williams’ directorial debut A Family Man. Previously titled The Headhunter’s Calling, the upcoming drama premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and features a cast that includes Gerard Butler, Alison Brie, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Max Jenkins; watch it below after the official synopsis…
Dane Jensen (Gerard Butler) is a hard-driven Chicago-based headhunter, working at a cut-throat job placement firm. When Dane’s boss (Willem Dafoe) announces his retirement, he pits Dane against Lynn Vogel (Alison Brie), Dane’s equally driven, but polar opposite rival at the firm, in a battle for control of the company.
As Dane gears up for the professional battle of his life, he learns his 10-year-old son, Ryan (Max Jenkins), is diagnosed with cancer. Suddenly, Dane is pulled between achieving his professional dream and spending time with his wife (Gretchen Mol) and Ryan, who need him now more than ever. »

It's widely accepted that a sense of humor is the most attractive thing about a person, so Dave Franco and Alison Brie must be extremely attracted to each other. The two hilarious (and, incidentally, very good-looking) actors got married recently after getting engaged in 2015. This truly seems like a Hollywood match made in heaven: Alison has been cracking us up since Community, and Dave has been our low-key funny-guy crush since a bit part in Superbad turned into bigger roles in the Neighbors movies and more. Every time we see these two out together, they seem like they're having so much fun - and are super in love. Here are a handful of the cutest pictures of Dave and Alison that would make you hate them if you didn't love them so much. Related:2017 Is Off to a Great Start For These Engaged Celebrity Couples »

Gerard Butler has done it all. He’s saved Aaron Eckhart’s President of the United States not once, but twice thanks to Olympus Has Fallen and its bombastic follow-up, London Has Fallen – turns out he won’t be completing the hat-trick, though, as Eckhart has passed up the planned action threequel – battled Persians, and will soon go up against a storm straight out of the Old Testament in this year’s Geostorm.
But with A Family Man, Mark Williams’ (The Accountant) directorial debut revolving around one man’s struggle to reconnect with his nearest and dearest, Gerard Butler is set to trade action for heartfelt drama. Pegged for a release in May, we now have the overly revealing first trailer to peruse, which introduces us to Butler’s career-driven headhunter, Dane Jensen. He’s a man that places work first and family second, but as is often the case, »

There are many ways to define bad. A modest dictionary would define bad as: “of poor quality or a low standard.” Other words you could use to define bad would be ‘terrible’, ‘inadequate’, ‘horrible’ and more. But is it possible that something so universally regarded as the worst movie of all time could actually be truly great and historically significant? James Franco aims to answer this question with his surprisingly outstanding film The Disaster Artist.
The film is an adaptation of the book “The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room. The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made” by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. The bestselling memoir was a first hand account of the making of The Room, the film that is most widely regarded as the worst movie ever made.
The Room was released in 2003 and was written, produced, and directed by one of the most mysterious, »

Community star Alison Brie is officially married to Dave Franco, brother of actor James Franco. The pair, who have kept their private lives relatively low-key, started dating over three years ago, in 2012. They announced their engagement in August 2015 on the red carpet of Brie’s movie Sleeping With Other People. Alison Brie Marries Dave Franco After Years […]

Almost like a surprise birthday present yesterday, ecstatic reviews came pouring in from South by Southwest (or SXSW) about a film that perhaps is the one I truly most want to see this year. It’s The Disaster Artist, an adaptation of the book of the same name, about the making of legendarily bad film The Room. Treated to a work in progress screening at the festival, it blew the lid off of the place. Stealing buzz away from Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, which festival goers also loved, this is the surprise hit so far of the fest. Even more so, there’s an outside chance that this could even be the kind of thing that the Academy takes notice of. This movie is a look at how an unlikely friendship bloomed between struggling actors Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) and Tommy Wiseau (James Franco). Their chance meeting in an »

The Room – a genre-jumping fluke that God himself couldn’t predict – may relinquish its midnight-movie throne once The Disaster Artist dumbfounds unprepared audiences. James Franco chronicles Tommy Wiseau’s indescribable rise in this hilarious tell-all, adapted from Greg Sestero’s bestselling biography of the same name. Bottomless bank accounts, limp-wristed football tosses, an accent without definition – The Disaster Artist tells a story too ridiculous for sanity. But that’s probably why you’ll lose your mind from laughing so damn hard.
The Disaster Artist begins with a talking head segment that praises The Room (Kevin Smith/J.J. Abrams, Adam Scott), anointing its decade-defying relevance as nothing short of deserved. We then meet Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) in a San Francisco acting class, alongside fellow student Greg Sestero (Dave Franco). They strike an immediate friendship, feeding off one another’s energy. Sestero envies Wiseau and his free-spirited abandon, while Wiseau just wants a friend. »

Brie’s reps confirmed to Et on Monday that the cute couple have tied the knot.
The pair kept things very hush-hush, and no additional details are available at this time. However, when Et spoke to Franco last June while he was promoting Now You See Me 2, the 31-year-old actor admitted that the couple would likely be eschewing many wedding day traditions.
"I don't know if I'm gonna have a best man," he admitted, when asked if either of his older brothers, James and Tom, would stand up for him on the big day. "I feel like when we do eventually get married, we're not gonna do a lot of the traditions and we're just gonna make it easy and who knows?"

The couple first met at a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans back in 2011, and they got engaged four years later. Alison's engagement ring is a one-of-a-kind rose gold sparkler featuring a rose-cut diamond and diamond pave from designer Irene Neuwirth. Congrats to the newlyweds! »

Love is in the Hollywood air. Dave Franco and Alison Brie managed to pull off what so many celebrities can't accomplish: They got married in private. A rep for the Hollywood actress confirmed the marriage news to E! News Monday evening. No other details were provided including the date of the wedding. Back in January, E! News headed to the Sundance Film Festival and chatted with the couple about wedding planning before the premiere of their new comedy The Little Hours. When our very own Marc Malkin asked about James Franco's late-night confession that the wedding would be happening "early this year," Dave sounded off with his signature humor. "He »

People exclusively confirmed that the actress’ one-of-a-kind engagement ring was the work of Southern California jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth. It’s a rose gold sparkler set with a rose-cut diamond and a diamond pave.

"We're your family, Dane! You're going to wish you had this time back." Voltage Pictures has released an official trailer for the indie drama A Family Man, starring Gerard Butler as a career headhunter who must struggle with the work-family balance when his 10-year-old son is diagnosed with cancer. This was originally titled The Headhunter's Calling, and it first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. In addition to Gerard Butler, the full ensemble cast features Alison Brie, Gretchen Mol, Willem Dafoe, Kathleen Munroe, Dustin Milligan, Alfred Molina, Julia Butters, and Anupam Kher. I hate to say it, but this looks so sappy and emotionally manipulative, that it's hard to take it seriously. I'm much more interested in seeing Gerard Butler in Geostorm than I am this movie. But these stories still need to be told. Here's the first official trailer for Mark Williams' A Family Man, direct »

Like such kindred spirits in quantity over quality as Tyler Perry and Joe Swanberg, James Franco has made a crapload of movies. Sooner or later, he was bound to deliver a good one. But who would have thought his adaptation of Greg Sestero’s “The Disaster Artist,” an outrageous blow-by-blow account of the actor-turned-author’s friendship with the aggressively untalented and infinitely enigmatic creator of one of the worst movies of this century — “The Room” writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau — would turn out to be the best and most professional entry on his own résumé?
That’s a claim not without caveats, mind you. The version that world premiered at the South by Southwest film festival was presented as a “work in progress” — where it killed to a room full of “The Room” obsessives, many of whom stuck around for a midnight screening of Wiseau’s disasterpiece. And even though IMDb lists »
