Anderson #1 Sends the Psychic Judge Out of Her Comfort Zone

Anderson:Psi-Division #1

Written by Matt Smith

Art by Carl Critchlow

Published by Idw

In her solo debut for Idw, writer Matt Smith takes psychic judge Cassandra Anderson out of familiar territory to catch some robbers that have taken an old map of the Cursed Earth from a museum in Mega City One and most definitely have some kind of powers. Because she has no memories of life before she was a cadet in the Justice Department, her friends and colleagues have become her family. Going away from Mega City One to chase after thieves in the Alabama Morass with another psychic judge from Texas City breaks down Anderson to her core as a character while also telling a fast-paced action mystery story. Artist Carl Critchlow takes the action scenes out of panel boundaries and uses small reaction panels to provide insights into Anderson and the perps she is fighting. Even though »

Kevin Hart Is Paid To Be Josh Gad’s Best Man In The Wedding Ringer Trailer

20 June 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few comedians currently have the sway of Kevin Hart, who has recently delivered a string of huge hits like Think Like a ManKevin Hart: Let Me ExplainRide Along and About Last Night. And with Think Like A Man Too actually outpacing both its predecessor and surprise smash Ride Along in pre-sales going into the weekend, it’s a safe bet that Hart isn’t giving up his newly claimed throne as king of comedy quite yet. Now, we’ve got our first look at another Hart vehicle - The Wedding Ringer, in which he stars with Josh Gad.

The first trailer, though predictable, features some pretty funny jokes – “It looks like the cast of Goonies grew up and became rapists,” says Gad’s character of a group of bums that Hart’s best-man-for-hire wheels out as potential groomsmen. It looks like Hart has another hit on his hands, »

Kevin Hart Is Your Best Man-For-Hire In 'Wedding Ringer' Trailer (Video)

20 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This weekend Kevin Hart stars in "Think Like A Man Too," a wedding-themed studio comedy. But that doesn't mean that the star, whose shrill, high-pitched scream is like a soothing lullaby to me, is done with wedding-themed studio comedies. This January he'll star in "The Wedding Ringer" as a best man-for-hire, who works with Josh Gad in assembling a crack team of groomsmen for his upcoming wedding. (Gad, it turns out, is something of a loser.)

The movie has kind of a funny hook, and a few hilarious lines in the frantic trailer (when inspecting the team of groomsmen Hart has assembled, Gad remarks, "It looks like the cast of 'Goonies' grew up to become rapists"). It was co-written and directed by Jeremy Garelick, who wrote the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston movie "The Break-Up" and has a hand in the upcoming "Police Academy" reboot.

"The Wedding Ringer" (that title!), is out on January 16th, »
