How weird would it be for a massage therapist to just suddenly hate the idea of touching the skin of clients? That's the problem Rosemarie DeWitt's character Abby in Touchy Feely faces, but her new psychological burden isn't the only drama in her life: Her niece Jenny (Ellen Page) is also head over heels in love with Abby's boyfriend (the adorable Scoot McNairy, who made an impact last year in Argo.) Enter Allison Janney as the therapist who may be able to help. While the premise is sort of strange, I'm dying to see this because it comes from writer/director Lynn Shelton, who made the touching and wonderful Your Sister’s Sister, among her many credits. Plus, I love Janney in just about anything. Touchy Feely comes out Sept. 6, but you can watch the trailer after the jump. »

Argo’s Scoot McNairy co-stars as Abby’s boyfriend Jesse who, apparently, takes a liking to her niece (Ellen Page).

New York — The Earth has been coming to an end with comic frequency. We've seen tsunamis sweep the oceans ("2012"), the world freeze over ("The Day After Tomorrow") and a rogue planet bear down ("Melancholia"). So many have been patrolling a desolate Earth – Will Smith ("After Earth"), Tom Cruise ("Oblivion"), a cute cleanup robot ("Wall-e") – that even the post-apocalyptic world is getting crowded.
But now, months after the Mayans predicted the end of the world, comedians are having the last laugh – or at least, a Last Days laugh. Opening Wednesday is Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "This Is the End," in which the rapture arrives in the midst of a Hollywood party at James Franco's house.
"The World's End" is coming in August and earlier this year, there was "It's a Disaster," where nuclear calamity interrupts a New Orleans couples' brunch. Also just out is the farcical "Rapture-Palooza," in »
Ah, Google. The greatest information superhighway, where most of us cruise on the daily, searching for intel only an absurdly complex, fast-acting algorithm can provide (unless you use Bing). We look for recipes, statistics, images, ourselves … pretty much anything and everything.
Google is a judgment-free zone, thus you can ask it whatever you'd like without fear or embarrassment. It's a mostly secret enterprise, as far as your personal search history is concerned. But ever since the search giant introduced the auto-fill drop-down function Google Instant, it's given us delicious insight into what others most commonly seek out around a subject.
Vulture made great use of this last week when it looked at what people most commonly asked about when it came to the Google love-fest "The Internship." It inspired us to look at a broader spectrum of Hollywood, plucking the very best/ most hilarious/ most absurd/ most depressing queries. Really, »

What value does fiction have in the interpretation of a historical event? This question can become central to the reception and understanding of historical films and has taken on important resonance in past years in regards to films like Ben Affleck’s Argo or Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty. These films are not documentaries; however they attempt to portray accurately events as they might have transpired. A similar film that for Canadian’s is perhaps a little closer to home is Denis Villeneuve’s 2009 film Polytechnique. For those unfamiliar with the events of the film, it portrays a 1989 Massacre at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, where Marc Lépine shot 28 people, killing 14 – all of whom were women. He purposefully targeted the women, blaming them for not being accepted into the school. Though on a smaller scale, like the two big Hollywood productions this film portrays an important historical event that »
