Debauchery and archaeology go hand-in-hand in the new trailer for Jake Johnson comedy Digging for Fire

17 July 2015 5:14 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Writer-director Joe Swanberg's latest comedy Digging for Fire boasts an all-star cast for its bizarre tale of debauchery and archaeology.

Digging for Fire casts Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt as a married couple who are set on separate weekend adventures after finding a gun and a bone buried in their backyard.

While DeWitt is romanced by smooth-talking chef Orlando Bloom, Johnson calls in friends like Sam Rockwell and Mike Birbiglia to dig up his backyard.

Through the weird weekend, stars including Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Jenny Slate, Ron Livingston and Chris Messina get in on the fun.

Lead actor Johnson teamed up to write the screenplay with mumblecore godfather Swanberg, who turned Digging for Fire into his most star-studded feature yet.

The duo previously teamed up on Drinking Buddies back in 2013.

Digging for Fire opens on July 25 in the Us. A UK release is yet to be set. »

Read More: Sundance Curiosities: Joe Swanberg and Noah Baumbach Could Take American Indie Film Mainstream After making the move from mumblecore to mainstream indies with "Drinking Buddies," Joe Swanberg continues to appeal to the masses in the star-studded new trailer for his upcoming marital comedy-drama, "Digging For Fire." The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. "Digging For Fire" stars Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt as Tim and Lee, a married Los Angeles couple who take individual trips of self-discovery. While Tim connects with friends in the area and literally digs for bones in the backyard, Lee worries about losing her identity while on a visit to her parents. The two get sidetracked in their own adventures -- ones that incorporate friends and newcomers in the form of Sam Rockwell, Brie Larson, Mike Birbiglia, Jenny Slate, Orlando Bloom and Anna Kendrick, among others.

Watch the trailer for Joe Swanberg’s latest, ‘Digging For Fire’

16 July 2015 2:14 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies) has proven to be massively prolific over the last few years with his brand of low-key, mumblecore comedies about everything and nothing in particular. His latest film, Digging For Fire, assembles an enormous cast in a weekend getaway as a group of friends dig for, treasure maybe isn’t the word, in the woods.

Jake Johnson (who also co-wrote the script with Swanberg) and Rosemarie DeWitt lead a cast that includes Mike Birbiglia, Orlando Bloom, Sam Elliott, Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, Brie Larson, Melanie Lynskey, Judith Light, Ron Livingston, Chris Messina, and Jenny Slate. Here’s the full synopsis:

The discovery of a bone and a gun send a husband and wife on separate adventures over the course of a weekend.

J.R. Kinnard caught up with the film at Sundance and was disappointed, writing, “It lacks the narrative focus and observational humor to be more than a mild diversion, »

Watch Inside Out’s Bill Hader Play “Save or Kill”

16 June 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m a huge fan of Bill Hader. Not only can he do amazing impressions that make me laugh out loud, over the past few years he’s proven again and again that he’s an extremely talented actor that can handle drama and comedy with ease. In Pixar’s masterpiece Inside Out, which opens this weekend, Hader voices the character Fear and as you might expect, does a fantastic job. Trust me, Inside Out is a special movie that you want to see in a theater. At the press day for the film, I landed an exclusive video interview with Hader. In the coming days I’ll post the full conversation, but today I wanted to share him playing “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value.

Poltergeist (2015) review

9 June 2015 10:41 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Stacey Beth

MoreHorror.com

The second that news is released about any beloved horror film getting the remake treatment, there's usually a collective upheaval in the horror community and the film is almost immediately shunned. To be honest, I am not one of those horror fans that totally shuts a remake out; I'm an equal opportunity viewer. When it was announced that everyone's favorite haunted family was going to be given a contemporary spin, I was pissed...and then I wasn't...and then I saw the movie. I am pissed again.

If you're not familiar with the original story of Poltergeist, it follows a family whose home becomes plagued by spirits and when they're terrorized one night by all kinds of supernatural mayhem, these spirits kidnap the youngest daughter, Carol Anne. From there a group of paranormal investigators come in to help find the little girl with the aid of clairvoyant, »

Watch Spy’s Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart and Paul Feig Play “Save or Kill”

5 June 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now playing in theaters is director Paul Feig’s Spy. As I’ve said many times, I think Spy is a great and extremely funny movie that’s definitely worth your time and money. The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason StathamRose ByrneMiranda HartBobby Cannavale,  Allison JanneyPeter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. For more on Spy, read Perri’s review or watch the trailers. At the L.A. press day I played an abbreviated version of “Save or Kill” with Paul Feig, Rose Byrne, »

24 May 2015 6:08 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The combined star power of Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Jason Statham in Paul Feig.s action-comedy Spy wasn.t enough to topple Mad Max: Fury Road from the top of the Australian box office over the weekend.

George Miller.s latest instalment to the iconic franchise scooped $4,149,968 over 273 locations, boosting its total domestic earnings to $12,557,065. The film, distributed by Roadshow, follows the plight of a road warrior Furiosa (Charlize Theron) who, with the help of Max (Tom Hardy) tries to save five imprisoned women from the clutches of Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne).

McCarthy stars in Fox.s Spy as Susan, an eager-to-please CIA employee who spends most of her time behind a desk acting as the eyes and ears of her partner and top operative Bradley Fine (Law). But when a Bulgarian arms dealer named Rayna Boyanov (Byrne) enters the picture, claiming to know the identities of all CIA operatives, »

Review: Poltergeist (2015)

24 May 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When the announcement of a Poltergeist remake hit the internet, it was next to impossible to ignore the cries and groans from friends/acquaintances who were absolutely livid at the thought of one of horror’s classics being given the dreaded redux. Never letting that sway my interest in giving everything a fair shake, I decided to go for it and gave my hard earned money to my local cinema and…was it the worst thing ever, like so many fans crying “foul” predicted it to be? No. With that being said, was it the best thing ever? Nope,not even close. There have been worse remakes of horror royalty in recent years..*cough* Nightmare On Elm Street *cough*,but let’s face it…you fright fanatics work hard for your money, and well, I decided to sacrifice a small part of my weekend to watch it, so you don’t have to. »
