First Clip from The Fault In Our Stars Starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort

13 April 2014 9:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released the first clip from The Fault in Our Stars.  The adaptation of the John Green novel centers on the relationship between two teenagers (Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort) who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love.  I really enjoyed the book, but I was worried that some aspects of it might come off as too twee or self-conscious.  I had some reservations about this moment between Hazel (Woodley) and Gus (Elgort), but after watching it on screen, it's clear that director Josh Boone has played the interaction perfectly.  The chemistry between Woodley and Elgort is excellent, and instead of this scene coming off as contrived, it's endearing. Hit the jump to check out the Fault in Our Stars clip.  The film also stars Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia, and Emily PeacheyThe Fault in Our Stars opens June 6th. »

Aw, James Van Der Beek Apologizes for Being a Jerk

28 March 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fun fact: James Van Der Beek can apologize for being a jerk without resorting to Dawson's crying jag. Who knew? In this clip from "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Van Der Beek ends up apologizing to comic Mike Birbiglia for looking pissed when told he resembled Birbiglia. In pictures the comparison makes no sense, but I admit there's a passing resemblance in the video. Heartwarming! Also: I really like Seth on this show.  »

New Featurette and Images for The Fault In Our Stars Starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort

24 March 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Actors Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort can currently be seen in theaters playing brother and sister in the futuristic thriller Divergent, but this summer the two play love interests in the highly anticipated adaptation The Fault in Our Stars.  Based on the swell John Green novel of the same name, the story revolves around two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love.  Today, 20th Century Fox has released a new featurette and a few new images from the pic, giving fans a brief behind-the-scenes look at director Josh Boone’s adaptation.  The character-centric story is a refreshing reprieve from the glut of genre-tinged studio fare, and as a fan of the book, I don’t see how Woodley doesn’t knock this role out of the park.  The first trailer, at least, is incredibly promising. Hit the jump to check out the featurette and images. »

18 March 2014 7:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Continuing his tradition of unexpected casting choices (Megan Fox in This Is 40, RZA in Funny People), Judd Apatow has made a number of surprising additions to the cast of his next directorial effort, Trainwreck. The film, which is scheduled for release next summer, is intended as a starring vehicle for rising comedienne Amy Schumer.

Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Oscar winner Tilda Swinton, WWE superstar/rapper John Cena, comedian Mike BirbigliaSNL star Vanessa Bayer, The Perks of Being A Wallflower star Ezra Miller and Girls ensemble member Jon Glaser have all been added to the cast of Trainwreck, which previously boasted Schumer, Bill Hader, Colin Quinn and Brie Larson.

Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck' Adds Tilda Swinton, Barkhad Abdi, Ezra Miller and More

18 March 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Judd Apatow has beefed up the cast of his upcoming comedy Trainwreck, which will feature comedienne Amy Schumer as a woman attempting to rebuild her life. Already in the cast were Bill Hader, Brie Larson and Colin Quinn, but that list has grown in a big way today. Actors joining the cast include Tilda Swinton, Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser ("Girls"), Vanessa Bayer ("Saturday Night Life"), WWE star Jon Cena and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk about Kevin). I'm very hopeful Abdi's casting isn't stunt casting and he won't be playing himself because this could be great news for not only him, but the industry as we also learned Lupita Nyong'o is up for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII as well as a courtroom drama with Daniel Craig. While I'm sure you're familiar with most of the names in the cast, if you're not familiar with Schumer, »

18 March 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The cast of Judd Apatow's next comedy Trainwreck was already sounding good with comedian Amy Schumer (who also wrote the project and is helping develop) in the lead, with Bill Hader and Brie Larson in supporting roles. Now the rest of the cast has filled out splendidly with some more great comedians, a surprising couple of dramatic actors and a wrestler. The story was previously described as being about a complete basket case (Schumer) trying to rebuild her life with her boyfriend, best friend and parent in tow. Recent reports say the plot is under wraps, so we don't know what to believe, but how about the new cast? First of all, Variety, The Wrap and THR all have different updates for the film, so let's start with the comedian additions.

18 March 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Director Judd Apatow seems to be going about things very differently with his next feature film, Trainwreck.

The Wrap is reporting that Tilda Swinton, John Cena, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Vanessa Bayer and Ezra Miller are all now in various stage of negotiations to sign on for the upcoming comedy. There are very few details available about the movie, but we do know that Schumer will play the lead, a trainwreck of a woman who has managed to screw up every aspect »
