Kevin Hart Is The Best Man In ‘The Wedding Ringer’ Trailer

25 September 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The latest trailer for upcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer is now out to view and comes with a surprising amount of laughs. Starring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, it sees a best man for hire (Hart) who attends weddings to make the groom look better. His services are employed by Gad, who needs an entire entourage to fill out the roles of his groomsmen ready for his wedding in 2 weeks. Of course there are rules which include not becoming friends, but we’re sure such rules are there to be broken, as well as Gad learning a little about himself through this unreal experience.

Judging by the trailer, which hopefully isn’t all the best bits, this looks like a well balanced farce with enough funny lines and slapstick humour too. However, we’re also sure that the plot will develop in a very predictable way.

What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

Kevin Hart Is a Best Man for Hire in New The Wedding Ringer Trailer

25 September 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Pictures has released a new The Wedding Ringer trailer for director Jeremy Garelick’s upcoming comedy.  The story revolves around an introverted yet successful tech entrepreneur (Josh Gad) who hires the owner of The Best Man Inc. (Kevin Hart) to be the perfect best man, assemble fake groomsmen, and throw a killer wedding party.  The movie has a lot going for it—a promising comedic duo, a fun premise, and a heartfelt friendship story at its center—and this trailer is quite funny.  I imagine this will be a sizable hit in the empty January moviegoing landscape, and it’s certainly nice to see Lost alum Jorge Garcia onscreen again. Watch the new The Wedding Ringer trailer after the jump along with a few new images.  The film also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Olivia Thirlby, Cloris Leachman, Jenifer Lewis, and Mimi RogersThe Wedding Ringer opens in theaters on January 16, 2015.

'Dredd' Prequel More Likely Than a Sequel

7 September 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite only earning $35 million worldwide in 2012, fans are still clamoring for a sequel to Dredd 3D. Star Karl Urban has said on a number of occasions that a sequel may still happen some day. However, the actor recently made an appearance at Chicago Comic-Con, where he revealed that now it's more likely that a prequel will be made, instead of a sequel.

"Why yes, there is a definite possibility. But, it is more likely that we will do the origins story with Dredd trekking through the cursed earth to find the first Chief Judge Fargo."

In the original Judge Dredd comics, Fargo was the first Chief Judge Dredd was cloned from. Fargo was never seen again after it was revealed that Dredd was his cloned. Max von Sydow portrayed Fargo in the 1995 Judge Dredd adaptation that starred Sylvester Stallone as the title character.

If the film does turn out to be a prequel, »

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, »

First Wedding Ringer Trailer Starring Kevin Hart, Josh Gad and Kaley Cuoco

20 June 2014 5:49 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

So, you’re about to get married to your ridiculously hot girlfriend, but you have pretty much no friends to make up your wedding party. What do you do? Well, in Wedding Ringer, Josh Gad (Frozen) seeks out the help of Best Man Inc. in an effort to not look like an oddball in the eyes of The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco.

That’s where Kevin Hart’s Jimmy comes, as he, “provides Best Man services for guys who lack in such areas,” and it’s up to him to be the perfect best man and throw a killer wedding party.

When he’s tasked with assembling a group of seven groomsmen as well though, Jimmy finds himself overwhelmed and the groom to be is lumbered with a wedding party that he describes in the trailer below as looking like the cast of Goonies who have grown up to become rapists. »
