Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Feb., 19, 2013

Price: DVD $22.98

Studio: Sony

Matt Lucas ponders a drink--and his dead landlord--in Small Apartments.

Matt Lucas, who was so awesome in TV’s Little Britain, just as he was weird in Bridesmaids, appears in his first leading role in the 2012 comedy Small Apartments.

Lucas is Franklin Franklin, a clumsy recluse who embarks on a hapless cover-up after accidentally killing his landlord. Trapped in his seedy La apartment with the body of the landlord on the kitchen floor, Franklin is surrounded by eccentric neighbors, including a stoner (Johnny Knoxville, Jackass: The Movie) and his girlfriend (Rebel Wilson, Pitch Perfect), a wanna-be stripper (Juno Temple, Killer Joe) and an artist (James Caan, The Gambler). To add to his problems, a drunk investigator (Billy Crystal, When Harry Met Sally) is questioning him about his landlord. But none of this fazes Franklin as he dreams of Switzerland, and waits »

The happy couple were all smiles as they strolled hand-in-hand to their car. However, Bosworth has said in the past that she tends to slim [...] »

Who Will Be Star-Lord in “Guardians of the Galaxy”?

3 December 2012 11:28 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

While Guardians Of The Galaxy may be the weirdest, most oblique and obscure of Marvel Studios’ film slate to this point, it looks like it won’t lack for star power. We haven’t heard much about the project since it was announced that James Gunn (Super, Slither, Scooby Doo) was hired to write and direct the project, but now we have some casting news.

Apparently a whopping eight actors are in the running to play Peter Quill (or Star-Lord), the likely lead of the film and the squad of heroes. He will join a roster that includes Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Racoon, and Gamora as they protect the galaxy from villainy (probably Thanos).

So who do they have auditioning for the part?

There’s Joel Edgerton, a rising Australian actor who’s on the cusp of stardom and Oscar accolades, after bursting on the scene with Warrior and Animal Kingdom, »

29 November 2012 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Ld Entertainment have released a trailer for director and star Katie Aselton's new survival thriller 'Black Rock'. Arriving next May the feature stars a threesome of gorgeous ladies that of Lake Bell ('Childrens Hospital'), Kate Bosworth -below ('Straw Dogs') and of course Aselton who has already promised us a necessary nude scene in the flick in throwback to sexploitation of genre features past.

'Black Rock' Trailer Makes Argument For Staying Home

28 November 2012 4:15 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

'cause there are crazy people out there. And because the trailer shows you the entire movie anyway.

The art of the movie trailer continues to elude Hollywood as the first look at director Katie Aselton's wilderness thriller makes for yet another preview that gives away several major plot points and strongly hints at certain character deaths.

It's really too bad, as it looks like the element of surprise plays a major part in this flick, with Aselton also co-starring along with Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth (who's a pro at this sort of scenario following her turn in last year's "Straw Dogs" remake) as a group of childhood friends who embark on a weekend getaway that ends up becoming a fight for survival when they come across a group of redneck hunter-psycho-rapist-killers with vague ties to their past.

Anyway, if you don't care either way, check out the trailer below, »

‘Black Rock’ Trailer Theorizes That Men Are From Mars and Women Are From Venus to a Deadly Degree

28 November 2012 4:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As if relations between the sexes weren’t strained enough already, along comes Black Rock, a new thriller from writer Mark Duplass (from everything) and director Katie Aselton (The Freebie) that looks like it’s going to fan the flames further, ensuring that we get at least another year of clueless nincompoops publicly declaring their unsettling opinions about rape. The basic story follows three ladies (Aselton, Lake Bell, and Kate Bosworth) who trek out to an isolated island where they used to have camping trips when they were young; you know, to rekindle lost youth or something. When they’re out there though, the island proves to not be as isolated as they thought. They happen upon a group of three very male hunters (Will Bouvier, Jay Paulson, and Anslem Richardson), one of the ladies gets a little frisky with a bearded gentleman around the campfire, and then he gets way handsy and his buddies suddenly turn »

Casting Roundup: Teller, Bosworth and Affleck Get the Gigs

21 September 2012 5:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

• We wouldn't mind getting snowed in with this trio! The Hollywood Reporter calls for stormy weather as "Project X" star Miles Teller will star opposite Analeigh Tipton and Jessica Szohr in "Two Night Stand," a romantic indie that centers on a pair of twentysomething strangers who awaken after an ill-advised one-night stand to find themselves snowed in by a blizzard that’s put all of Manhattan on ice.

• After playing a victim in "Straw Dogs," Kate Bosworth is looking to be the rabble-rouser this time around. Heat Vision reports that the "Blue Crush" beauty will be playing James Franco's revenge-minded (and meth-addicted) sister in "Homefront," the action thriller starring Jason Statham and written by Sylvester Stallone.

• Speaking of inclement weather, Casey Affleck better buy himself a winter coat (or two!). The Hollywood Reporter brings news that the "Ocean's Eleven »

Krysten Ritter on Making Her Dreams 'Happen'

27 August 2012 1:19 PM, PDT | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

As Krysten Ritter learned earlier this year when her ABC sitcom, Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23, premiered simultaneously as the movie she co-wrote, Life Happens, hit theaters, timing is everything. And if you missed the indie's theatrical debut, now is the time for you to catch the charming tale of three best friends and a baby.

Joining Krysten in the film she co-wrote, co-produced and co-stars in are Kate Bosworth, Rachel Bilson, Geoff Stults, Kristen Johnston, Justin Kirk, Rhys Coiro, Colin Egglesfield and Jason Biggs. I caught up with Krysten to talk about Life's long road from script to screen, and everything that happened in between.

TheInsider.com: Life Happens is clearly a labor of love for you -- but was it harder than expected to get it into theaters?

Krysten Ritter: Life Happens is like the little movie that shouldn't be. We had a lot of trouble getting it released. Every single »
