Ben Stiller And Naomi Watts Battle Middle Age In While We're Young Trailer

2 March 2015 3:54 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A new international trailer has come our way for Noah Baumbach's (The Squid and the Whale, Frances Ha) While We're Young, which teams up Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a middle aged couple who try to recapture their youth when the befriend the younger, free spirited Jamie and Darby (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried). This cross-generational comedy has garnered a shed load of praise since it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and judging by the above trailer, it's not unwarranted. Baumbach excels when it comes to exploring the everyday in witty and sosphisticated ways, and he is backed by an able cast, especially lead pair Stiller and Watts. Released: 27th March (U.S.)/ 3rd April (Irl/U.K.) »

New Trailer Arrives For Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young

26 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Noah Baumbach has carved out a successful slate of features exploring a variety of demographics. From The Squid And The Whale‘s dysfunctional family dynamic to Frances Ha‘s directionless-yet-awesome protagonist, the director has tackled his fair share of neuroses. With his latest offering, comedy drama While We’re Young, his sights are set on investigating an entirely new type of character.

The film stars Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller, a happily-married couple each in their forties. Having made peace with the prospect of a childless future, the pair broaden their horizons when they befriend a much younger couple – played by Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver. And therein begins the next stage in their life as Watts and Stiller commence with a series of pratfalls during their attempts at impressing their youthful companions.

Last fall we saw the first teaser, that set up the premise nicely while offering both leads a solid amount of one-liners. »

Ben Stiller Tries to Be Hip in Second Trailer for 'While We're Young'

26 February 2015 10:47 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Why do you suddenly want to hang out with a couple of 25 year olds?" You're only as young as you feel, and Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts seem to feel like they're in their mid-20s again. At least, that's what happens when they start hanging out with youngsters Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried in While We're Young, the latest from The Squid and the Whale / Frances Ha writer & director Noah Baumbach. This might be Baumbach's most accessible film, perhaps with a skew toward older crowds as opposed to the usual young, hip indie audience. But the writing, characters and comedy are genuine enough for all to enjoy. Here's the second trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young originally from Yahoo: You can still watch the first trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young right here. While We're Young is written and directed by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, »

‘Mistress America’ Is Noah Baumbach’s Funniest and Most Accessible Film Yet [Sundance 2015]

25 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Noah Baumbach’s movies have never been easy to describe. Each one blends so many different tones, sensibilities and genres that simply describing his movies as one thing doesn’t work. Calling The Squid and the Whale a family drama doesn’t seem right. Frances Ha isn’t just a coming of age story and Greenberg isn’t just a […]

Sundance Film Review: ‘Mistress America’

25 January 2015 2:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Midway through Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig’s “Mistress America,” the movie arrives at a long, zany setpiece so inspired and brilliantly sustained that it alone would be worth the price of admission (or the wait in a long Sundance queue). But there’s much else to admire in “Mistress,” which finds the crown prince of New York intellectual self-loathing and his ebullient co-writer/muse returning to the terrain of their 2012 “Frances Ha” — intense female friendships and eager young people trying to find their places in the world — while pushing even closer to full-tilt screwball farce. One of Baumbach’s warmest and purely funniest films, this Fox Searchlight pickup may lack the name cast of the filmmaker’s other 2015 release, “While We’re Young,” but positioned properly it could reach Baumbach’s broadest audience since 2005’s “The Squid and the Whale.”

If nothing else, “Mistress America” confirms Gerwig as one of the great, »

Scott Davis on films to look out for at Sundance 2015…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when many of Hollywood’s big hitters gather together to be awarded a variety of different prices on the Awards circuit, culminating with the 87th Academy Awards on February 22nd. But on Thursday weekend in west USA (namely Utah) the Sundance Film Festival kicks off again, and many of the world’s best independent films will get their debuts to the public, and the press, over the next few weeks.

Staff Writer Scott Davis takes a look at some of the films making their debuts, and digs deep to find the next gems that could be coming out way in 2015.

When an aging travel writer sets out to hike the 2,100-mile-long Appalachian Trail with a long-estranged high school buddy, the duo learn that some roads are better left untraveled. »

Samuel Goldwyn Jr. Dies at 88

9 January 2015 8:52 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Samuel Goldwyn Jr., the son of a fiercely independent-minded Hollywood mogul and the producer of many independent films in his own right including “Mystic Pizza” and studio hits including “Master and Commander,” died Friday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 88. His son John Goldwyn told the New York Times he died of congestive heart failure.

Goldwyn Jr. received his final credit as a producer, together with son John and others, on Fox’s long-gestating remake of the Goldwyn Sr.-produced classic “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” starring and directed by Ben Stiller and released in December 2013.

The courtly and soft-spoken scion was known for shepherding independent and foreign films and got his start in documentary filmmaking, in contrast to his brash father, who made his way from a youth of poverty in Poland to a partner in MGM.
