Butterfingers will see Brand as Keith, “a lonely and down-on-his-luck hitman who is competing against his archrival Perry who is after the same target in Spain. When Perry beats Keith to the chase and kidnaps the target’s ex-love, Keith reluctantly takes their teenage son and 9-year-old daughter as secondary leverage before a chase across Europe.”
“Tom has written a brilliantly funny script that finds a new fan with every read. We could not be more excited to be working with Russell and Barnaby to bring Butterfingers alive,” said Mark Lane of The Fyzz Facility, who is financing and producing the film with Embargo Films.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher looked to be the perfect Hollywood couple on Sunday at the Breakthrough Prize Awards at the Nasa Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California.
The couple put on a loving display, giggling at each other and holding hands as they walked down the red carpet.
Kunis, 34, looked chic in a strapless gown with a sheer corset that billowed into a floral skirt. Kutcher, 39, kept his look classic in a black suit with a matching bowtie.

Selling a movie is not an easy task, and over the years it has not gotten any easier. Promotional campaigns have to be very creative and persistent in order to capture people’s attention amid the sea of advertising we are flooded with on a daily basis. Common tactics include giveaways, publicity stunts, viral marketing techniques, sponsorships, and product tie-ins. Many films try to push the boundaries of traditional promotional campaigns in an effort to get an edge on the competition. Below is a brief look at ten campaigns (in no particular order) which definitely pushed the envelope, but doing so did more harm than good for the films they were trying to promote.
Five Things You Didn’t Know About Nicholas Stoller
In her polygraph statement, which the “Passengers” and “Equals” actress says she passed, Perrineau stated that she met Miller during an evening out with friends at the Standard Hotel. She had “consumed some alcoholic beverages” and Miller “was flirting with me. I told him repeatedly that I was 17 years old.” Perrineau’s father is “Lost” star Harold Perrineau.

Miller later asked the group for a ride home, admitting that “he was drunk,
Truth be told, that’s perfectly understandable: Quantifying art is a fool’s errand, and biopics provide voters with a way of measuring how close someone has come to hitting their target. It isn’t necessarily a good way, but it’s a way all the same.
Whatever their opinion on the role itself, it would be hard to watch Gary Oldman reanimate Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour” and argue that
The actress revealed during Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live that her 3-year-old is unfamiliar with her famous mother’s movie career.
“My daughter has no clue what I do for a living,” Kunis said to guest host Shaquille O’Neal, adding that Wyatt thinks “mommy gets hair and makeup for a living” because she only visits the hair and makeup trailers on sets.

Judd Apatow chats to us about The Big Sick, directing, stand-up comics and bad interviews...
Heading into UK cinemas this week, The Big Sick is a reinvigorating romantic comedy. It has a brilliant cast of characters, a unique pitch (boy meets girl, boy loses girl, awkward situations and a medically induced coma ensue) and a balance of drama and comedy that means you never know whether to brace yourself for a broken heart or split sides. A breath of fresh air, it’s the sort of film regular cinema goers need. It’s also the sort of film that needs regular cinema goers; it needs those that see it and enjoy it to shout about it, to tell people that it’s worth paying attention to.
Directed by Michael Showalter, the film stars Kumail Nanjiani, who co-wrote the script with his real life spouse Emily V. Gordon
Unless you have fond memories of Dav Pilkey's series of books, it's entirely possible that Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie has tra-la-laaa'd its way into cinemas under your radar. Hopefully, you'll seek it out, because this is the funniest and most creative film to come out of DreamWorks Animation in a long time.
The imaginations fuelling the story are fourth-grade children George and Harold (voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch), who break up the monotony of their life at the unusually austere Jerome Horwitz Elementary School by drawing comics, playing pranks and generally trying to make each other laugh.
Their principal, Mr. Krupp (Ed Helms) hates them for it and on the brink of banishing them to separate classes, an unexpectedly powerful cereal box gift enables the boys to hypnotise him. He comes to believe
‘I am 40 years old. The drawbridge is going up, man. It’s now or never for me,” says a panicked Keegan-Michael Key in Friends from College, Netflix’s self-explanatory new sitcom. As a young man, Key’s character, Ethan, was destined to write the Great American Novel; now he’s trying to get his head around writing Ya fiction, which brings him to the shocking revelation that he is no longer a young adult himself.
For viewers of a similar demographic, Friends from College might well be too close for comfort. The fact that Ethan and his buddies are entitled Harvard graduates makes them easier to laugh at, but this is Generation X heading into middle age, and they’re really not handling it well.
Why Should I Watch It? Ivy League graduates are largely insufferable, but Netflix is challenging that notion by assembling the most likable cast in recent memory to play a bunch of Harvard alumni reuniting in their late 30s. (Ok, so this list pretty much proves that all famous Ivy Leaguers are awesome, but you know the non-famous are impossible bores. No? Just me? Damn it.) Anyway, “Friends From College” brings together Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max), and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) — plus Kate McKinnon and Ike Barinholtz as guest stars — in a comedic exploration of old friendships from the creative minds of Nicholas Stoller (“Neighbors: Sorority Rising,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and Francesca Delbanco. Sounds like an ideal mixer, no? Good — at least we can agree on something.
