The first images from Arms & the Dudes, director Todd Phillips’ first film since The Hangover Part III, have landed online thanks to Phillips himself. Based on a Rolling Stone article of the same name, the film tells the true story of two young guys who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to supply America’s allies in Afghanistan with munitions. After 85 deliveries to the war-torn country worth over $66 million, their Miami offices were raided by federal agents and the two were charged with 71 counts of fraud. Phillips had been developing the project for a few years as a producer through his and Bradley Cooper’s production shingle at Warner Bros., but last year he finally pulled the trigger on directing. Miles Teller and Jonah Hill star in the two lead roles, and Phillips co-wrote the script with Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic. The first images, which Phillips unveiled on his Instagram, »

Now that Warner Bros. has slated the action comedy for a release in 2016, we’re beginning to see the first signs of life from Todd Phillips’ upcoming picture, Arms and the Dudes. Taking to Instagram, The Hangover director shared several images from the production, showcasing Jonah Hill and Whiplash star Miles Teller as a pair of pot-smoking wheeler dealers.
Lifted from true events, the film follows the two friends as they quickly amass a small fortune by brokering deals with U.S. military contracts. It isn’t long before their illicit escapade spins out of control, though, and “The Dudes” find a lucrative deal worth $300 million sitting on their laps; one which would see them do business with some of the most ruthless players in the Iraq War.
Phillips has earmarked each still with the day of shooting, and though these may no be indicative of the final cut, »

Meet your new Arms Dealers, David and Efraim. After making three The Hangover movies, what is director Todd Phillips up to next? This is his next project, a movie called Arms and the Dudes, "based on a true story" of two young men who were contracted by the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan. Miles Teller plays David, Jonah Hill plays Efraim, to friends who suddenly start bidding on military contracts, but then they end up in-over-their-heads with the Afghanistan deal. This sounds like it might be really good, especially coming from the comedic mind of Todd Phillips. SlashFilm found four new photos posted online. Here's the new photos from Arms and the Dudes, from Todd Phillips on his Instagram @toddphillips1: Based on a true story, Arms and the Dudes follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami during the Iraq War who »

Before Cards Against Humanity, we played Apples to Apples, and if you wanted to make that game any fun at all for someone over 10, you had to have an inside joke wild card. And of course the only good wild card that could win every time no matter what was Helen Keller. Her name has become more synonymous with a meme than with her actual life. And Pro Tip: Helen Keller and Anne Frank are two different people.
But Helen Keller remains so awesome, that this latest movie that you should absolutely give all your money to is so epic that the crazy wild Wtf name Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves cannot even do it justice.
Currently Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves has 16 days left in a $1 million Indiegogo campaign to complete post-production on the film. Directed by Ross Patterson, who wrote the tongue-in-cheek Western novel At Night She Cries While He Rides His Steed, »

Actor Ed Helms is best known for comedic roles in TV’s “The Office” and “The Hangover” movies, but he got serious when he addressed Rolling Stone magazine’s recanted rape story in a speech at the University of Virginia. “It has been said that a rolling stone gathers no moss,” Helms said in remarks at Uva’s Valedictory Exercises Friday. “I would add that sometimes a rolling stone also gathers no verifiable facts or even the tiniest morsels of journalistic integrity. “Rolling Stone tried to define you this year,” Helms said. “As a result, not only was this community thrown deep into turmoil, »

Bradley Cooper will reprise the role of Eddie Morra from the film Limitless, for a recurring role in a new TV series based on the hit movie. Limitless, directed by Neil Burger, was a surprise hit for Cooper back in 2011, and news broke earlier this year that the movie was to be adapted for television. We all expected that Cooper wouldn’t feature, but this latest news confirms that the actor will appear in some capacity, though Jake McDorman, who starred with Cooper on American Sniper, will play the main lead, Brian Finch.
The series, like the movie, revolves around a man who discovers the mysterious drug Nzt which allows its user to unlock their brain’s full potential. The character of Finch also “has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of Nzt who has plans of his own for his new protégé, »
- Paul Heath
Never underestimate the allure of Nzt, for Bradley Cooper is set to reprise his role as fledging-writer-turned-hyperactive-genius Eddie Morra for CBS’ forthcoming Limitless TV series. In what is understood to be recurring role, The Hangover star has now risen through the ranks to become a presidential hopeful, one who stills leans on the aforementioned drug like a crutch.
According to the network, Cooper – who is set to executive produce the series – will have a part to play in the pilot of the show, before returning in future episodes whenever his schedule permits. There are little plot details available as of yet, though throughout the narrative arc, Cooper’s Morra will turn his attention to a new protégé of his own: Brian Finch. Played by Jake McDorman, Limitless‘ protagonist will follow in the footsteps of Cooper’s regular Joe, who “discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug Nzt and is »

To call John Candy irreplaceable is an understatement. The late, great comedy actor was one of a kind. We haven't really had another star like him in the years since his passing. Some would argue that no-one makes John Hughes-calibre comedies these days, either.
Mike Epps (previously seen in two Resident Evil movies and The Hangover, soon to play Richard Pryor in a biopic) has one heck of a job on his hands, then - he's taken over the mantle of Uncle Buck, the role made famous by Mr Candy in Hughes' 1989 movie, for ABC's new TV version.
Here's the first trailer...
And here's the synopsis:
With many shows from the 2014-2015 television season easing into their season finales over the next few weeks, numerous network channels are already beginning to gear up for the 2015-2016 television season’s unofficial kickoff in September. ABC is no different, as they have already announced their renewals, cancellations, and new projects. At Upfronts this week, the channel released trailers for a number of their new series, along with details on each show.
From Shondaland’s Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, “The Catch” is a new thriller centered on the strong, successful Alice Martin (Mireille Enos). She’s a fraud investigator who’s about to be the victim of fraud herself by her fiancé. Between her cases, she is determined to find him before it ruins her career.

The new show will star Mike Epps (The Hangover) and Nia Long (Big Momma’s House), with Epps taking on the role played so famously by the late John Candy in the original film, that of a immature-but-laugh-riot uncle who is called in to look after his nieces and nephew when their mother and father are called away after the mother (Long) hears of her father’s heart-attack.
This isn’t the first attempt at bringing the film to the small-screen, with the short-lived 1990 version on CBS cancelled after just one season.
Uncle Buck is set to air in the fall on ABC. »
