22 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Talk about an office with a view! Anna Kendrick appears to be taking advantage of the sun and the surf  while on location in Hawaii—and who can blame her! The 29-year-old actress showed off her toned bod in a black studded bandeau-like swimsuit top and high-waisted black bottoms as she took a dip in the ocean. "At the office," she captioned the Instagram snap. The talented starlet was surrounded by nothing but blue sky and white, fluffy clouds with the exception of a few palm trees in the distance.

Watch: Judy Greer & Natasha Lyonne in 'Addicted to Fresno' Trailer

21 July 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Ya'll ready for this?!" Gravitas Ventures has debuted a trailer for the indie comedy Addicted to Fresno, from filmmaker Jamie Babbit (Breaking the Girls, Itty Bitty Titty Committee). This kooky indie stars Judy Greer & Natasha Lyonne as sisters at a hotel in Fresno, California. When one of them accidentally kills a guy, they go to extreme lengths to cover up the crime. The supporting cast includes Aubrey Plaza, Clea DuVall, Allison Tolman, Ron Livingston, Molly Shannon and Fred Armisen. This looks funny at times, but doesn't seem like anything that stands out in a crowd. At least it's nice to see more of Judy Greer. Here's the official trailer for Jamie Babbit's Addicted to Fresno, found on YouTube (via The Playlist): Synopsis: Two co-dependent sisters, a recovering sex addict and a lonely lesbian (played by Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne) who work as hotel maids, go to ludicrous »

Watch: Judy Greer And Natasha Lyonne Cover Up A Crime In Trailer For 'Addicted To Fresno' With Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, More

21 July 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For those of you getting a bit bummed about Judy Greer spending the summer in thankless Blockbuster Mom roles (seriously Hollywood, she's great and deserves better), here's a movie that gives the actress so much more to do. "Addicted To Fresno" features Greer in the lead role alongside a pretty talented ensemble, in what looks like a pretty light-hearted comedy caper. Directed by Jamie Babbitt ("But I'm A Cheerleader") with Natasha Lyonne, Fred Armisen, Molly Shannon, Ron Livingston, Allison Tolman, and Aubrey Plaza among the players, the story follows a recovering sex addict and her lesbian sister, who work together at Fresno Suites and get caught up in covering up a crime after they accidentally kill a hotel guest. This looks light and breezy, but again, the highlight seems to be Greer given a major big screen spotlight. The film opens on October 2nd. Check out the trailer below. »

"I Got Fired Because I F**ked a Bunch of People"

17 July 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Judy Greer is a very fun actress who often brings plenty of depth to her characters. Of course, this year she's had two awful characters to play in both Jurassic World and Ant-Man and I'm not sure if she had more than two minutes of screen time in Tomorrowland... that movie is sort of a blur to me at this point and best left forgotten. However, it does appear Greer does have one solid performance on the horizon in Jamie Babbit's Fresno (now apparently titled Addicted to Fresno). Here's the plot: Fresno is a comedy about co-dependent sisters who work as hotel maids in Fresno, CA. Shannon (Judy Greer) is fresh out of sex rehab when her younger, overly optimistic lesbian sister Martha (Natasha Lyonne) lands her a job as a maid at Fresno Suites, the local hotel. When Shannon jeopardizes her fresh start by accidentally killing a hotel guest after a post-rehab relapse, »

Watch: Natasha Lyonne and Judy Greer Hide a Body in Nsfw 'Addicted to Fresno' Trailer

17 July 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: SXSW: How Natasha Lyonne and Judy Greer Escaped the Hollywood Boys Club for 'Fresno' Judy Greer is normally the level-headed sidekick, and Natasha Lyonne the crazy mess, but not this time around. Jamie Babbit's SXSW comedy "Addicted to Fresno" runs far away from typecasting by starring Greer as the sex-addicted wreck, Shannon, and Lyonne as her strangely optimistic sister, Martha. The film follows the two sisters as Shannon comes out of sex rehab and gets a job as a maid at the hotel where her sister works. After Shannon relapses and accidentally kills a hotel guest, her and Martha go on an all-out adventure to cover up the crime. "Addicted to Fresno" marks the second collaboration between Lyonne and Babbit after the 1999 cult hit, "But I'm a Cheerleader." The comedy also stars Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Jessica St. Clair, Molly Shannon, Michael Hitchcock and Ron Livingston. The »

When the laughter stops: how sitcom stars have fared in Hollywood

13 July 2015 4:49 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

For every Chris Pratt, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler, there is a Sofia Vergara or Jennifer Aniston. We look at the former small-screen stars who made the biggest splash in Hollywood

Amy Poehler is one of the most popular sitcom stars of recent years, thanks to her role in Parks and Recreation and awards-show turns with Tina Fey. She has seamlessly made the transition from TV to the big screen via Pixar’s latest hit, Inside Out. But such a path has proven hazardous in the past. Many TV comedy stars have briefly popped up on the big screen, only to retreat back to their comfort zone; some have become something of a joke, and others have been let down by the different demands of Hollywood. Few have gone on to enjoy a prolonged career making movies – fewer still making good movies. But who has managed to pull it off? »

The Fourth of July weekend may have come to a close, but Anna Kendrick and her boyfriend, cinematographer Ben Richardson, are still soaking up the sun. The couple, who first stepped out together last August, spent their Monday on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, where they explored a rocky shore near the water. Anna has been in Hawaii for the past month or so, filming Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates alongside Zac Efron and Aubrey Plaza. The group has clearly been spending plenty of time outdoors during their stay; we caught them all on a hike together in May, and the filming has had them busting moves in their bikinis on the beach. Keep reading for all the pics from Anna's day with Ben. »

Burying the Ex | Review

Ex to Grind: Dante’s ZomCom Never Finds Its Pulse

Zombies are difficult subject matters for the screen. A staple of a popular subgenre, original narrative inspiration is rare in a field of low yield thrills from contemporary films unable to match the iconic masters, like early George Romero. Of course, every now and then, something innovative and exciting comes along, such as Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later (2002), and it’s surprisingly energetic sequel. But increasingly, like all glorious horror tropes, comedy has taken the place of tension. Sometimes, in the right hands, this can also be inviting. So it’s disappointing to see a director like Joe Dante, the man who balanced these elements deftly in classics likes Piranha (1981), Gremlins (1984), and The ‘Burbs (1989) turn up with his latest, Burying the Ex. With its overtly fresh faced young cast and first time script from Alan Trezza (adapted from his own »
