Put on your headphones for this one, folks.
It's been a minute since Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel starred in "Bad Teacher" together. They've reunited for the dark comedy "Sex Tape," and it feels so... good? Annie and Jay are a bored married couple looking to rekindle that special spark of sexy sexiness, so obviously they dress up and record themselves doing the dirty. Except, being the digital age and all, they use an iPad. Jay is sort of a schmuck and accidentally uploads it to the cloud -- the cloud is, as he says, "a f-king mystery," which we'll allow as a plausible excuse -- which means that all the people they gave iPads to can now access their video.
Is this the equivalent of being that person who holds up a giant iPad to take a photo in public? Because that's really embarrassing. Also, isn't the title a misnomer, »

Once upon a time, the upcoming comedy Sex Tape was one of the movies slated to open against the adaptation of 50 Shades Of Grey. However, the team behind the adaptation of E L James' novel clearly blinked first when faced with the might of Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz.
It certainly could be fun this one. Jake Kasdan is behind the camera (having previously directed Zero Effect, Bad Teacher and Walk Hard), and we've got a red band trailer for the film here. As such, you're only allowed to watch this if you don't mind a little bit of rudeness, and a drug reference. Don't say we didn't warn you...
Sex Tape arrives in UK cinemas in September, following its UK bow in July.

Sony Pictures has released the first red-band trailer for director Jake Kasdan's (Bad Teacher) comedy Sex Tape. The film stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has accidentally been uploaded to the cloud, set out to delete the video from the iPads of their friends and family and ensure that their reputations aren't ruined. Segel and Diaz look to have solid chemistry as the lead comedic duo, and it's promising to see that the film isn't shying away from its R-rating. There are a few comedic tropes glimpsed in this trailer that are well-worn territory, but Kasdan certainly has the capacity to go the unexpected route (see: Walk Hard), so hopefully Sex Tape avoids delving into too many cliches. Hit the jump to watch the debut trailer. The film also stars Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper, and Rob Lowe. Sex Tape opens on July 25th. »

Director Jake Kasdan reeled me in with Orange County and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story so naturally I.d wanted to see whatever he signs on for. Sex Tape is his latest directorial effort which boasts a cast including Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz, Rob Lowe, Ellie Kemper, and Rob Corddry. The first trailer will drop during the series finale of Segel.s How I Met Your Mother, but the red band hit the internet first. So does it deliver the laughs? I figured for a red band trailer it might be a little »

It would appear that Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel really hit it off when they worked together on Bad Teacher. The pair have re-teamed again, and this time they’re making a sex tape. Yes, unlike in The Counselor where Diaz famously humped a car, Segel is the object of her affection this time around. In the upcoming comedy Sex Tape, the duo play a married couple that try to spice things up by filming a sex marathon. But then, as happens to be the case for many sex tapes, they lose possession of it.
Sex Tape will find Diaz and Segel in quite a predicament. “With their reputations on the line, they know they’re just one click away from being laid bare to the world… but as their race to reclaim their video leads to a night they’ll never forget, they’ll find that their video will »

American acting and filmmaking legend Harold Ramis passed away this morning.
The 69-year-old Ramis reportedly died from complications of a rare disease - autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis (blood vessel swelling).
Ramis' health struggles began in May 2010 with an infection that led to complications related to the disease. He had to relearn to walk, but suffered a relapse in late 2011. He was surrounded by family when he died.
While he also had memorable roles in "As Good as It Gets," "Airheads," "Knocked Up," "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story," he was even more famous for his filmmaking. In his time Ramis wrote and directed such comedy classics as "Caddyshack," "National Lampoon's Vacation," "Groundhog Day" and "Analyze This".
Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, »

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz “made a sex tape,” and our first preview of the finished product is now online. The two star in director Jake Kasdan’s (Bad Teacher) upcoming comedy Sex Tape, which revolves around a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has been stolen, set out to recover the tape and ensure that their reputations aren't ruined. This first image from the pic gives us a tease of what that sex tape may entail, as Diaz is seen in bed sporting a pair of roller skates (one assumes she's just really into Boogie Nights). Segel co-wrote the screenplay with Kasdan and Kate Angelo, and as a big fan of Kasdan’s Walk Hard—not to mention the impressive comedic abilities of Segel and Diaz—I’m very much looking forward to seeing what they’ve cooked up for this new film. Expect a debut trailer soon. »

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2007, and another 25 overlooked gems...
For some reason, the number three was a common factor in several blockbuster movies of 2007. The third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series (At World's End) dominated the box office, Spider-Man 3 marked Sam Raimi's last entry as director in the series, while Mike Myers went for a hat trick of hits with Shrek The Third.
I Am Legend was the third and most financially successful attempt to bring Richard Matheson's classic novel to the big screen, Rush Hour 3 marked Jackie Chan's last action pairing with Chris Tucker, while Zack Snyder's musky sword-swinger 300 was notable for having the number three in the title.
Iffy attempts at numerology aside, 2007 was also a superb for year for movies in general - particularly underappreciated ones, »
