For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a younger A-lister, though one who’s been continually increasing her profile for a number of years now. It’s Emma Stone, one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars. She’s basically been on a rocket to the top, with no signs of slowing down. Stone not only has the goods as an actress, she’s got the charisma and personality to match. That’s the kind of combination that allows a star to go far. She’s an A-lister through and through, but one still very much on the upswing of her career. She’s still got plenty more to do, including I suspect…win an Oscar. Stone is an actress who can shine in just about any role. She got her start with a clever supporting performance in Superbad, the type of performance she’d »

People's Sexiest Man Alive is a married man! Adam Levine, 35, and Behati Prinsloo, 25, exchanged their vows at Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Saturday, July 20, and it was a Superbad ceremony.
Et confirms that two-time Oscar nominee Jonah Hill officiated the wedding, but he wasn't the only celebrity to participate in the festivities. Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks performed with Levine her and Don Henley's 1981 hit Leather and Lace.
According to Us Weekly, the bride wore a Marchesa gown as the couple said their "I dos" in front of nearly 300 guests-- including Jason Segel, Robert Downey Jr. and Victoria's Secret models Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel.
E! News adds that "aside from [model] Coco Rocha, the majority of the bridesmaids were Victoria's Secret models and they wore white dresses. Meanwhile, the groomsmen sported black Hawaiian print shirts and black trousers."

A glob of stray semen is slathered on as impromptu hair gel. A high school flutist describes all the graphic details of her "one time at band camp." A slobbering frat boy climbs a ladder for a close look at disrobing co-eds — a glimpse so revelatory that he plummets backward without batting an eye. Raunch-comedy history is littered with off-color climaxes, and the genre hasn't blown its load quite yet.

Emma Stone believes in the supernatural! The "Amazing Spider-Man" star stopped by the "Late Show" on Wednesday, to chat with David Letterman about her personal experience with ghosts. Check out the video above to see why Emma believes that her grandfather haunts her! Apparently, Stone's grandfather leaves her little signs that he's still around -- and she's convinced that it has to be him. "It's him," she exclaimed. "It's absolutely him." The "Superbad" red-headed beauty says her grandad leaves her quarters, because he always had a strange fascination with pocket change. "This is your late grandfather, and you find a quarter, 'Oh, I bet that's from granddad?,'" Letterman tried to clarify. "Yes," Stone explained. "Who I never met! It's exactly like that. It's that. It's such a long story that you'd have to go to commercial five times and roll to a clip and then come back and I'd still be telling the story. »

After teasing his outlining process last week, Preacher co-creator Seth Rogen released a new photo from his cork board, which includes a song that will be familiar to fans of Garth Ennis' original comic book.

Last week's photo revealed that Genesis, the supernatural deity who possesses Texas preacher Jesse Custer, will be seen right away in the teaser. In the comic, Genesis takes hold of Custer during one of his sermons, which set him on a journey to literally find God, who has abandoned his post in Heaven. Jesse is joined on this journey by his ex-girlfriend and an unorthodox vampire, as they are hunted by the Saint of Killers. »
Brooks Wheelan announced on Monday that he was "Fired From New York, It's Saturday Night!"
The 27-year-old comedian tweeted:
But don't go feeling sorry for Weelan just yet. Acclaimed comedy director Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) has already reached out to him, tweeting: ".@brookswheelan you will have the Robert Downey Jr. post SNL career! (minus the painful drug addiction). Rock on friend!"
Wheelan responded: ".@JuddApatow thanks man! I'm gonna take this time to formally submit myself for the Ironman reboot in 2021 and the Chaplin reboot in 2032."
Wheelan isn't the only SNL cast member to have his time cut short on the show. Obvious Child star Jenny Slate was let go after one season. She did, however, drop the f-bomb on her first episode. Chris Parnell, who now stars on Suburgatory, was cut from »

Comic-Con has become a strange bird to Hollywood studios. Bringing talent and previewing footage can give tremendous hype and word of mouth to eventual blockbusters ("Django Unchained," "Gravity," "Iron Man") or it can end up providing false hope for genre films hope will be smash hits ("Cowboys and Aliens," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"). That means it can be an expensive endeavor if things don't go well and, moreover, you might not realize that until six months later on your opening weekend. 2013 had few outright failures though besides "I, Frankenstein" and the under-performing box office of Edgar Wright's "The World's End." Outside of that? It might have been the most successful Comic-Con on the movie side ever (granted, the embarrassingly delayed "Seventh Son" won't hit theaters until Feb. 2015). This year's run of movie panels on Thursday, Friday and Saturday have some impressive selections from Daniel Radcliffe's first appearance »

In 2010, she played the lead role in "Easy A", receiving a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for 'Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy'.
Other notable roles have included 'Skeeter Phelan' in "The Help" (2011), 'Gwen Stacy' in "The Amazing Spider-Man" film series (2012–2014), and the voice of 'Eep' in the animated film "The Croods" (2013).

Not long ago, Dave Franco was just an A-list actor's D-list little brother, being bullied in a 2008 Funny or Die video called "Acting With James Franco." Dave wanted to act, too, but he was stuck in the big, weird shadow of James, who was balancing high-profile roles with poetry, nudity and crazy art films. Onscreen, Dave's good looks got him typecast as a clean-cut prick. He played "Greg the Soccer Player" in 2007's Superbad and a couple of forgettable bit parts on TV's Greek and Privileged.

After reigning supreme on Saturday Night Live for seven years, Kristen Wiig made her voice in film loudly and rightly known in 2011 with Bridesmaids, which she starred in and cowrote with Annie Mumolo. Punching giant cookies, wooing Irish cops and forcing her friends to defecate in sinks at bridal salons set her up as an invaluable asset to a host of comedies and dramedies in the years since, like Friends with Kids, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Girl Most Likely. Meanwhile, Bill Hader, probably one of the greatest talents from the SNL stage, has always had a healthy career as a bit player in comedies. While he hasn’t had a vehicle like Bridesmaids yet to largely showcase his worth, he’s been the supportive wing man, henchman, insert-assistant-title-here, delivering the best lines and effectively stealing the show in everything from Superbad to The To Do List. But his side-character status might be changing to »

Having premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, we have heard little more from The Skeleton Twins – until now. The dramedy stars regular collaborators Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader as co-leads, and is written and directed by Craig Johnson (True Adolescents), with Mark Heyman (Black Swan) as co-writer.
After a decade of estrangement, twins Milo and Maggie are thrust back together in unexpected and surprising circumstances. Their respective lives have taken some wrong turns, and they gradually realise that the key to resolving their issues is to repair their relationship with each other. That synopsis – while succinct – does no justice to what is a joyous trailer. Joyous, not for its generally uplifting atmosphere, but because of the perfect showcase it provides for the revelatory Bill Hader.

Fresh from its debut at Sundance, and subsequent showings on the festival circuit in the Us, the first trailer for The Skeleton Twins has arrived online, which you can view below…
The film stars Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Bill Hader (Adventureland, Superbad) as the titular siblings, who after years of estrangement, are reunited after ten years, still facing up to the varied challenges of their respective lives. Directed by Craig Johnson (True Adolescents) the film has been garnered with mixed praise across the festivals, but the majority of critics have shared their love of Wiig and Hader’s performances in a much more dramatic setting. The Playlist in particular said that the film “proves to be a fine showcase for Wiig and Hader.”

While Kristen Wiig has already played her breakout role in "Bridesmaids," and has used that opportunity to forge her own path in Hollywood, including lining up a new directorial gig, we've been waiting for her "Saturday Night Live" co-star Bill Hader to get his shot. He's certainly lined up no shortage of small roles in a number of movies (everything from "Superbad" to "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby"), but in "The Skeleton Twins" he co-stars with Wiig with the pair leading the dramedy. Premiering earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, the movie follows an estranged brother and sister, reunited after ten years, who face the various challenges in their lives. Craig Johnson ("True Adolescents") directs the film, which has a score from Nathan Larson, and while we had mixed feelings on the movie, we noted out of Park City that that the film "proves to be a fine showcase for Wiig and Hader, »

We don’t go to the cinema much, because we hate people. We also don’t go because there’s always the risk of accidentally going to see the wrong film. It's not helped by the fact that there's no way of telling until it’s too late, because there are no bloody opening credits on lots of modern films. And by the time you do realise, you’ve eaten all your popcorn and you can’t be bothered to move.
The movies on this list won’t give you that problem. These opening credits are perfect scene setters for the movies that follow, so you won’t have to worry about awkward popcorn wasting moments. It's not a top 50, rather a selection of 50 interesting credits sequences, »
It sounded like a terrible idea. Take an '80s TV show that was responsible for making Johnny Depp a heartthrob, and turn it into an action comedy. While Jonah Hill had proven himself funny in Superbad, Cyrus and the underrated Funny People, he was bringing Channing Tatum along for the ride, and none of us knew what to make of it... until we saw the film. The movie made $138 million and scored an 85 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. So, Hollywood did a lot of soul searching and shocked everyone by deciding to make a sequel. Thankfully, directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (the team responsible for The Lego Movie) also returned, so let's see if the boys can leave high school behind for some undercover college work in this week's Film Face-off with 21 Jump Street vs. 22...

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are recounting their meet-cute, but the details are proving…controversial. It was 2007, apparently, right after Hill starred in Superbad and Tatum in Step Up. They were familiar with each other’s work, but had never met until one fateful night at West Hollywood’s Dan Tana’s, where they happened to catch each other’s eye across the restaurant…
“Hold up, hold up,” interrupts Tatum, 34. “It wasn’t after Step Up. It was The Vow or something.” Hill, 30, rolls his eyes. “The Vow was, like, way later,” he says. “That was right before Jump Street came out, »

While Seth Rogen has risen to fame for his onscreen performances over the past few years, the actor has also gained commercial and critical acclaim for his work behind the camera, partnering with writer Evan Goldberg to script movies such as Superbad, Pineapple Express, and The Green Hornet. The duo took on directorial duties in 2013 with This Is The End, leaving fans intrigued when their next directorial project was announced. Titled The Interview, Rogen and Goldberg co-wrote the screenplay with Dan Sterling, with Rogen also starring in the film alongside James Franco, Lizzy Caplan, Randall Park, and Timothy Simons. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.
