‘Foxcatcher’, with Steve Carell and Channing Tatum, gets a new trailer

2 July 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While actor Steve Carell is primarily known for his role in films such as The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Anchorman, the actor has also received acclaim for his dramatic turn in movies such as Little Miss Sunshine and The Way Way Back. With a varied career that includes dramas alongside romantic and comedic fare, Channing Tatum has similarly gained an umber of fans over the course of his career, leading many to be intrigued at the news that the two actors would be working together on their next project. Titled Foxcatcher, the film is directed by Bennett Miller, working from a script by E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman, and Tatum and Carell star alongside Mark Ruffalo and Vanessa Redgrave. A new trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below. Sound on Sight was able to see the film at Cannes 2014, and our review can be read here. »

Daniel Radcliffe Spotted On The Set Of Judd Apatow's Trainwreck

1 July 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After the modest performances of This is 40 ($67.5 million) and Funny People ($51.8 million), director Judd Apatow might need a little magic to reclaim the box-office dominance of Knocked Up ($148 million) and The 40-Year-Old Virgin ($109.4M). Which might explain why he.s leaning on the world.s most powerful wizard for his next comedy, the Amy Schumer-led Trainwreck. The Internet caught fire today with bizarre pictures of Harry Potter sensation Daniel Radcliffe smoking and walking around New York City with a pack of dogs. Has Daniel Radcliffe fallen on hard times after the Harry Potter franchise wrapped? Is he killing time between performances on Broadway in The Cripple of Inishmaan by walking packs of posh Upper East Side pooches? Neither, as it seems. As the day progressed, Daniel Radcliffe was linked to a possible cameo in Judd Apatow.s comedy Trainwreck, built around the brilliantly funny Amy Schumer. Twitter user »

They Came Together Will Make You Love Rom-Coms Again

27 June 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s not so much that the world needs yet another spoof of romantic comedies. Whether it’s through direct parodies like Date Movie, or through reinventions like The 40 Year-Old Virgin, the genre has had enough holes poked in it over the years. Even without those films, we’ve groaned through the clichés enough times on our own. But David Wain’s rom-com spoof They Came Together, which on paper sounds like it’s way late to the party, sneaks up on you. Taking pretty much every rom-com trope and distilling it into highly concentrated ridiculousness, Wain’s film is both a takedown and a tribute: As with his summer-camp-movie spoof Wet Hot American Summer, you walk away with a renewed love for the genre.They Came Together starts off as a variation on You’ve Got Mail (which itself was a variation on The Shop Around the Corner).

The movie directors who could use a good boss

19 June 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

They're talented, individual, but could, possibly, do with a bit of editorial guidance. Could these directors use a boss, we wonder?

Odd List

In truth, we're a bit frightened about this one. Several times in pub/coffee shop/cider drinking in the park conversations, we've chatted about film directors who perhaps have got too powerful, that they seem to be able to get their own way without having someone to call bullshit on them - be it a good boss, or a very good friend that they trust and listen to.

This can be a very good thing. After all, we want film directors to be free to tell their stories. We don't want studio suits calling the shots. And some directors use their independence wondefully well, without losing what bought it to them in the first place (so, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis and such like).

Steve Carell and Ken Jeong Team Up for 'International Incident'

18 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Steve Carell has come aboard to produce the political comedy International Incident, which has Ken Jeong attached to star.

David Javerbaum, who was a former head writer on The Daily Show, will write the script based on his pitch to Summit Entertainment, which follows five United Nations delegates who embark on a road trip to find one of their lost lovers. No details were given for Ken Jeong's character, and it isn't known if Steve Carell plans on starring as well, or if he will only produce.

The project will mark Ken Jeong's first leading role in a studio project, following memorable turns in The Hangover trilogy, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Pain & Gain, along with voice roles in Despicable Me 2, Turbo and the upcoming The Penguins of Madagascar. The former doctor-turned-actor is also attached to star in The Duff and Truth or Dare.

Seth Rogen’s Advice To Aspiring Filmmakers

13 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This post is in partnership with Cadillac  Cadillac and the Producers Guild of America recently launched Make Your Mark, a short film competition that challenges producers to create compelling content with limited resources. Contestants will make a short film over a single weekend in late June, and the 30-second Cadillac spot featuring the grand prize winner’s film will air during the 2015 Academy Awards. We caught up with Seth Rogen at the PGA-sponsored Produced By Conference on the Warners lot where he, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver were offering advice that might be useful for aspiring filmmakers planning to enter. Although they currently have Neighbors in theaters — which a weary Goldberg said there’s already discussions about making a sequel — the three men were not in attendance to promote any project in particular. They primarily discussed their history together and, best of all, the kinds of stories they’re interested in and how they want to go »

11 June 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The onslaught of adaptations of Young Adult fiction continues with The D.U.F.F – an upcoming movie from CBS Films, which has just added award-winning Allison Janney to its cast. Based on the debut novel of author Kody Keplinger, the film has Academy Award winner Ari Sandel (Aim High) on board to direct, from a screenplay penned by Josh A. Cagan (Undergrads).

With Mae Whitman (Arrested Development) in the lead role, the story sees a high school senior devastated as her happy world is shaken by the realization that her fellow students routinely refer to her as The D.U.F.F (Designated Ugly Fat Friend to pretty students). Incensed, she drafts in the help of a male friend (Robbie Amell from The Tomorrow People) to aid in her personal reinvention, as she moves to undermine the school’s ruthless label maker (Bella Thorne from Blended).

Seth Rogen Seeking ‘Neighbors’ Sequel

7 June 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With “Neighbors” topping $135 million at the U.S. box office this weekend, Seth Rogen admits he’s exploring a sequel with producing partners Evan Goldberg and James Weaver.

“We are having a lot of discussions,” the actor told an audience of about 400 in the opening panel at Saturday’s Produced By conference at the Warner Bros. lot.

In a wide ranging-discussion moderated by Producers Guild of America co-president Mark Gordon , Rogen stressed that he and his partners will continue specializing in low-budget R-rated comedies through their Point Grey production company.

Rogen asserted that — following a long series of studio notes — he cut the budget for “Neighbors”  in half  to $18 million to minimize interference by studio execs. “At least we didn’t make a movie we hate and had to work on for a year and a half,” he added.

Rogen also revealed that he’s attempting to pull together the “Jazz Cops” project, »

Watch: Cameron Diaz & Jason Segel Get Naked In New U.K. Trailer For ‘Sex Tape’ Plus New Photos

5 June 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Did you care for Sony’s “Bad Teacher”? Would you want to see a sequel? The movie was just okay, right? But before you forget, that R-rated comedy grossed $216 million worldwide. You might not think those are spectacular numbers, but it is higher than “Knocked-Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” two mid/late aughts pictures that were heralded for making the R-rated comedy bankable again. So there’s no sequel (not yet anyhow, but it is in development), but for Sony, they’re getting the next best thing. Jake Kasdan, who directed “Bad Teacher,” is back with its two stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel for "Sex Tape." Written by Kate Angelo, Kasdan and Segel, their latest collaboration is one that everyone will love...at least Seo-wise. Co-starring Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe, the premise is likely self-evident: A married couple wake up to discover that the sex tape »

Exploring Apatow and Rogen’s Shlubby Non-Misogyny

4 June 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, ‘It’s not fair’?” — Ann Hornaday “You know what? I respect women! I love women! I respect them so much that I completely stay away from them!” — Andy Stitzer, The 40-Year-Old Virgin 2005 wasn’t a terrible year to have a comedy in theaters. Wedding Crashers, Hitch and The 40-Year-Old Virgin all finished the year with record numbers, regardless of genre. Of the three, Virgin was the most shocking surprise. For Universal Studios. For Hollywood. At the time, Steve Carell (The Office had only been out for half a year to underwhelming ratings), Catherine Keener and the rest of the cast were seen as character actors and indie drama mainstays, not movie star leads. At the center of the low-budget film was Judd Apatow. A »

Jonah Hill Jumps Into Controversy Just As His Career Gets Serious

3 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For someone who has achieved a high degree of fame in his 20s, Jonah Hill managed to stay out of the tabloids and gossip columns—until now. This past weekend he unleashed a homophobic slur at a paparazzo while he was walking with a friend in the Larchmont Village area of Los Angeles.

Losing his cool, the 30-year-old star lashed out at a photographer who was teasing him about his flowered shorts. “Suck my d—k, you f—-t,” Hill told the man who had been trailing him all day.

Ironically in this week’s Variety cover story, Hill was asked how he’s been able to avoid attracting negative press all these years, something he attributed to his good upbringing and working nonstop.

“Since ‘Superbad,’ I haven’t taken a break. I go make movies, so I don’t’ have the time to be a mess,” he says, “At least not yet. »

Seth MacFarlane: Our Next A-list Comedy Filmmaker?

28 May 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

We’ve known for years now that Seth MacFarlane was one of the kings of animated television comedy, but it was only a few years ago that we saw him conquer cinemas as well with his directorial debut Ted. The film was hilarious, clever, and better received by critics than anyone was expecting. In a heartbeat, MacFarlane had the keys to the Hollywood comedy kingdom. Obviously, sequels to Ted will follow soon enough, but this week will see the release of his sophomore outing, the Western spoof A Million Ways to Die in the West. As a huge Mel Brooks and Blazing Saddles fan, I’m all for people trying to follow that path. If the movie is a success this weekend, could MacFarlane be on his way to surpassing Judd Apatow as the biggest comedic filmmaker out there? To be fair, that’s not exactly an apt comparison.

'Foxcatcher' Receives Early Oscar Buzz For Actors Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo And Steve Carell After Cannes Premiere

20 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Foxcatcher made a huge splash at the Cannes Film Festival and has inspired Oscar buzz for its stars Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell.

Foxcatcher premiered at Cannes on Monday, May 19, and is competing for the elusive Palme d’Or. The film was already a hot topic before its premiere. Many speculated about what Carell, known for his comedic work in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Office, would do in a dramatic role. Many more debated how Tatum, an actor who became famous for his pretty face and then surprised audiences with his impressive range – 21 Jump Street, Magic Mike – would fare with such serious, dramatic material.
