29 May 2009 9:25 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A red-band trailer has gone online for the Jeremy Piven-starring The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, and it makes the used car dealership comedy look like an effective broad comedy.The plot's simple really: Piven and the gang are wheeled in to bail out an ailing car dealership over the big July 4 weekend. Cue comedy, racist humour, smoking on airplanes and Piven proclaiming, "I have hair on my balls and I sell cars. The end."Originally called The Goods: The Don Ready Story (echoes of Anchorman: The Ron Burgundy Story there) the film's out on August 14 in the Us but doesn't yet have a release date here. »

Warners moves up 'Traveler's'

16 March 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Warner Bros. is moving up the release date for literary adaptation "The Time Traveler's Wife" from next year to Aug. 14.

To facilitate its move, Warners will delay releasing fantasy sequel "Final Destination: Death Trip 3D" until Aug. 28. "Death Trip" had been set to unspool on Aug. 14; "Traveler's" was an unslotted 2010 title.

Starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, "Traveler's" is a romantic drama based on a best-selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger. Its screenplay was written by Bruce Joel Rubin ("Stuart Little 2"), with Robert Schwentke ("Tattoo") directing.

Also set to unspool wide on Aug. 14 are Sony's sci-fi thriller "District 9," Summit's youth comedy "Band Slam" and Paramount Vantage's adult laugher "The Goods: The Don Ready Story."

Most of the majors' summer release slates have been locked down for some time, but industryites have anticipated some late-breaking jockeying over one or more August slots. The industry marks its boxoffice summer from the first »

The Doctor Is In

5 March 2009 12:59 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Ken Jeong has finally ascended to one of the key levels of celebritydom: getting recognized on the street. Sort of. "I'm getting, like, 'I've seen you in some stuff; I don't know who you are, but you're really funny,' " the actor says with a laugh. It's likely these would-be fans caught one of Jeong's scene-stealing performances in a trio of recent hits. He portrayed surly ob-gyn Dr. Kuni in 2007's Knocked Up and followed up with roles as the grim assassin in Pineapple Express and the haughty king in Role Models. All three characters are antagonists — villains, if you will — but Jeong doesn't necessarily see it that way. "In my opinion, I don't think Dr. Kuni's a villain," he says. "I just thought of him as having a bad day. He's just tired. Or he had reasons to be kind of a dick. I guess that's a good way »

31 December 2008 7:44 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Inglourious Basterds will march into theaters nationwide on Aug. 21, 2009, distributor The Weinstein Company announced today.
