Ferrell and Poehler Go Full Scarface in The House Red Band Trailer

18 May 2017 2:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just a month and a half left until the R-rated summer comedy The House hits theaters, New Line Cinema has debuted an outrageous new red band trailer. This age-restricted video contains much more footage that the first trailer, showing what really happens when these loving parents, played by Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, catch someone cheating. The result is much more bloody and hilarious than the version shown in the all-ages trailer, but if you're averse to a lot of blood being shown, you may want to look away towards the end of this footage, because it gets rather gruesome.

Warner Bros. debuted this red band trailer on YouTube today, which opens with a scene where Scott and Kate Johansen (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) are celebrating their daughter Alex's (Ryan Simpkins) graduation, by describing the "f--- fest" their house will become, once their daughter leaves for college. There's one big problem though, »

28 Best Drunk Scenes in Film

17 March 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, arguably the biggest drinking holiday of the year, we looked at some of the best drunk moments to grace the silver screen. From Humphrey Bogart’s classic, heartbreaking “of all the gin joints” speech in “Casablanca,” to the utterly ridiculous scene in “Team America” when the puppets spew their guts up, here are the 28 best drunk scenes on film.

Leaving Las Vegas” — Booze Run

Although not a traditional “drunk scene,” the opening scene of “Leaving Las Vegas” — which sees Nicolas Cage’s Ben Sanderson dancing through a liquor aisle piling his cart sky high with booze — is as good a prelude to this list as any.

Arthur” — Introducing Princess Gloria

Dudley Moore’s Arthur spends the majority of the film tipping back drinks, but his introduction of “Princess Gloria” to his aunt and uncle at a restaurant — and his insistence that Rhode Island could »

Creative Fraternity: Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio on their SXSW Doc, May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers

15 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Two decades of writing, producing, and finally directing some of the most commercially and critically successful films in the world have given Judd Apatow enough cachet to make nearly anything. After his directorial debut, The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), took in more than $175 million in domestic gross revenue, his Apatow Productions produced an ongoing string of gargantuan hits, including Knocked Up (2007), Superbad (2007), Bridesmaids (2011) and Trainwreck (2015). But it is only within the last three years that Apatow has moved into a seemingly unlikely genre: documentary film. Last year saw his first nonfiction work as co-director with Michael […] »

Exclusive: How Judd Apatow Has Cultivated Success on TV

27 February 2017 7:50 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Judd Apatow is no stranger to success -- or the work it takes to get to where he’s at today.

After getting his start on TV as a co-creator and co-producer of The Ben Stiller Show and, later, honing his craft as a writer on The Larry Sanders Show, he wrote and produced Freaks and Geeks as well as creating Undeclared. Though they only lasted one season each, both shows would go on to become cult classics while Apatow largely shifted his focus to film. It was there he found box office success with Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, followed by an era of bromantic comedies with The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad.

“I didn’t really plan to do TV,” Apatow tells Et on a snowy day in January -- the first of two conversations that coincidentally happened on snow-filled days during a surprisingly mild winter in New York City. While excited »
