The first trailer for director James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour released on Wednesday and offered our first look at Segel playing author David Foster Wallace. The film also stars Jesse Eisenberg, Anna Chlumsky, Mamie Gummer, Ron Livingston, Mickey Sumner, and Joan Cusack.
The film is about the five-day road trip that a young Rolling Stone writer (Eisenberg) ventured on when writing a profile on the famous, and semi-reclusive, media-shy novelist.
Ponsoldt has been on a roll lately with Smashed and The Spectacular Now and all the buzz from this movie is very positive with many people signaling Segel as a potential Best Actor nominee for next year’s Oscars.
Our own Lane Scarberry said that the film is “a quiet, »

Jonah Hill is a two-time Oscar nominee, James Franco can switch back and forth between comedy and drama like the best bi-curious performers, and Seth Rogen is about to co-star next to Michael Fassbender in Danny Boyle’s awards contender “Steve Jobs.” So all the Apatow alum are flexing their creative muscles in dramatic territory. And while you might not think you’d ever hear Jason Segel and serious Oscar contender in the same sentence, this became a reality this previous winter. Segel wowed critics at Sundance in James Ponsoldt’s “The End Of The Tour,” an indie drama where he stars as celebrated author David Foster Wallace who committed suicide in 2008. The movie, however, is not about Wallace’s death or the lead-up to it, but instead is about a life-changing five-day road trip that a young Rolling Stone writer (played by Jesse Eisenberg) ventured on when writing a profile on the famous, »

"I don't know if people can understand the pressure to be funny," Apatow says today, "just knowing how badly you can fail and how embarrassing it will be."
To the public, Apatow had nothing to fear. He was the king of comedy, the overlord of an unprecedented seven-year, 21-film barrage of hits and near-hits that he'd either directed, written, or produced. His leading men had become marquee names: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Paul Rudd. And Bridesmaids had recently given him his biggest box office haul ever.
Arms and the Dudes
"The Hangover" filmmaker Todd Phillips has used his Instagram account to post the first photos from his upcoming feature "Arms and the Dudes". Jonah Hill and Miles Teller star in the project about a Miami-based small business who bid on U.S. military contracts and started raking in big money.
The film tells of the aftermath of the attack which left dozens permanently injured, and how the city came together to heal itself. Espinosa is coming off the period Soviet drama "Child 44" which has had a disastrous run so far in cinemas. [Source: THR]

Director Todd Phillips (The Hangover) just released the first photo from his upcoming "Arms and the Dudes" film, giving us a look at Jonah Hill and Miles Teller. Check it out below. Plot: The movie is based on a true story and focuses on two stoners (Hill, Teller), who got a $300 million contract to supply weapons for allies in Afghanistan. Due to their inexperience, they quickly find themselves in danger abroad and in trouble back home. Warner Bros will release the film sometime in 2016. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
Todd Phillips knows dudes, so it was probably only a matter of time until the word actually landed in one of his movie titles. And so it goes for his upcoming "Arms And The Dudes," another story of bros getting in way over their heads, except in this case, it's all based on true events. Jonah Hill and Miles Teller star in the movie based on Guy Lawson's Rolling Stone article (read it right here) that follows 25-year-old David Packouz and 21-year-old Efraim Diveroli, who scored a $300 million Pentagon contract to arm allies in Afghanistan, taking them on a journey through the absurd and political world of international arms trafficking that would end up with the duo being busted for fraud. Bradley Cooper is one of the producer's on the movie, and the images suggest something slightly more serious than we're used to from the filmmaker. Read More: Todd Phillips »

The first images from Arms & the Dudes, director Todd Phillips’ first film since The Hangover Part III, have landed online thanks to Phillips himself. Based on a Rolling Stone article of the same name, the film tells the true story of two young guys who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to supply America’s allies in Afghanistan with munitions. After 85 deliveries to the war-torn country worth over $66 million, their Miami offices were raided by federal agents and the two were charged with 71 counts of fraud. Phillips had been developing the project for a few years as a producer through his and Bradley Cooper’s production shingle at Warner Bros., but last year he finally pulled the trigger on directing. Miles Teller and Jonah Hill star in the two lead roles, and Phillips co-wrote the script with Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic. The first images, which Phillips unveiled on his Instagram, »

Now that Warner Bros. has slated the action comedy for a release in 2016, we’re beginning to see the first signs of life from Todd Phillips’ upcoming picture, Arms and the Dudes. Taking to Instagram, The Hangover director shared several images from the production, showcasing Jonah Hill and Whiplash star Miles Teller as a pair of pot-smoking wheeler dealers.
Lifted from true events, the film follows the two friends as they quickly amass a small fortune by brokering deals with U.S. military contracts. It isn’t long before their illicit escapade spins out of control, though, and “The Dudes” find a lucrative deal worth $300 million sitting on their laps; one which would see them do business with some of the most ruthless players in the Iraq War.
Phillips has earmarked each still with the day of shooting, and though these may no be indicative of the final cut, »

Meet your new Arms Dealers, David and Efraim. After making three The Hangover movies, what is director Todd Phillips up to next? This is his next project, a movie called Arms and the Dudes, "based on a true story" of two young men who were contracted by the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan. Miles Teller plays David, Jonah Hill plays Efraim, to friends who suddenly start bidding on military contracts, but then they end up in-over-their-heads with the Afghanistan deal. This sounds like it might be really good, especially coming from the comedic mind of Todd Phillips. SlashFilm found four new photos posted online. Here's the new photos from Arms and the Dudes, from Todd Phillips on his Instagram @toddphillips1: Based on a true story, Arms and the Dudes follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami during the Iraq War who »

’80s-set corporate morality tale A Most Violent Year has been earmarked as one to watch more than most. Echoing Sidney Lumet’s urban thrillers of the ’70s, it brings a fresh sensibility to the genre by casting two of American cinema’s true up and comers – Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain.
Looking to the past while paving a way to the future, the talent behind the project is writer/director J.C. Chandor. Thn got the chance to sit down and talk turkey with the man himself. Expecting him to be a serious-minded sort, we were surprised to find Chandor open and talkative about his work, giving detailed insights into everything from his leading lady’s fingernails and getting tributed by Jonah Hill, to the elements that inspired the highly-intriguing end result…
Thn: The setting for the film is very specific and gives the story its title. What came first for you, »

The Craft is getting a remake, and it's fair to say that people are somewhat tentative about the prospect.
Remaking any film that people actually like is always a bold move, but messing about with a teen cult classic from the 1990s is just asking for trouble.

The Craft is in just as much need for a remake as Oldboy and Akira.

Miles Teller and his girlfriend, Keleigh Sperry, enjoyed a nice afternoon at the beach in Miami on Sunday. The Whiplash and Divergent star went shirtless for the warm day, while Keleigh showed off her frame in an orange bikini. The couple showed sweet Pda on the sand before taking a dip in the ocean, but things took a scary turn when a pregnant woman who was swimming nearby with her young daughter told them she had seen a shark. Miles took the woman by the hand and pulled her from the water; the actor, who is in Miami while filming Arms and the Dudes with Jonah Hill, appeared to be shaken, but the group unwound on the shore after the alarming moment. Keleigh later shared the story on Instagram, saying, "She came up to us freaking out telling us to not freak out but it was a shark. And the »
“The D Train” is a head-scratcher of a film, and not in a good way. Written and directed by Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel (the duo behind Jonah Hill’s short-lived animated series, “Allen Gregory”), the comedy stars Jack Black as Dan Landsman, a man still yearning for approval from high school classmates. He wasn’t popular when he graduated 20 years ago, and he still isn’t. He’s a social outcast, a guy who never really fit in and longs for adoration and acceptance. Despite this driving desire, Dan has a loving and attractive wife (Stacey, portrayed by Kathryn Hahn), an affectionate 14-year-old son (Russell Posner, “Fading Gigolo”), and an infant daughter. Given all he has at home — which, held up to the light of Dan’s social shortcomings, never achieves believability — you’d expect him to be more than content. Yet, he’s not. He barely acknowledges Stacey, »

Yesterday we got our first official look at three cast members in costume from Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Western The Hateful Eight, and today the first images from the film reveal the entire lineup in all their bundled-up glory. The story takes place a few years after the Civil War and revolves around a group of traveling strangers who are forced to take refuge together at a bar when a snowstorm hits the Wyoming landscape. This being a Tarantino film and all, we can safely assume the characters don’t become best friends by the movie's end. These new images reveal the full “Hateful Eight”, and they are as follows: Kurt Russell as John Ruth, a “mean sonuvabitch” bounty hunter on his way to Red Rock with a murderous woman in tow. Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, a former Union officer who lives in the Wyoming mountains. Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, »
