Gerard Butler Has It Made in La

14 December 2008 5:30 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Gerard Butler looked like he was having a good time after a night at Bar DeLuxe in Hollywood earlier this week. He was rolling solo, but the actor isn't short on hot female costars these days. He's all done shooting The Ugly Truth with Katherine Heigl and you can check out the trailer here. He'll have to wait until April to pose with her on the red carpet, but until then he's in talks to star in a comedy with Jennifer Aniston — which would explain all the supposed flirting between these two in the past.

Harrison Ford Going For Comedy

9 December 2008 7:20 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Given that most of the comedy in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was of the unintentional or groan-inducing variety, it's nice to hear Harrison Ford might be trying to be actually funny at some point in the future. While he did pester MTV with talk of an Indy 5, he also mentioned two other upcoming projects, including a comedy with nerd titan J.J. Abrams on board. The MTV kids did some sleuthing on the Abrams project and figured out it's Morning Glory, a script written by Devil Wears Prada scribe Aline Brosh McKenna, about a female news producer tormented by an egomaniac veteran anchorman who shows up to revive her show. It sounds weirdly similar to the plot of the Katherine Heigl movie The Ugly Truth, except I guess instead of a hunky misogynist to fall in love with, Ford's character will be a silver fox »

Katherine Heigl Debuts on Highest-Paid Actresses List

4 December 2008 11:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Katherine Heigl has come a long way since carrying a gun-totting doll in 1998's Bride of Chucky. The Grey's Anatomy star and newly minted screen queen has made a tremendous leap onto the A-List, counting herself among the top five of Hollywood's highest-paid actresses, according to the Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment: Power 100 list. The 30-year-old movie newbie, who made her major box office debut in 2007's Knocked Up (which has grossed more than $148 million) and followed the comedic hit up with 27 Dresses, took the fifth spot on the prestigious list behind such powerhouses as Angelina Jolie (No. 1), Julia Roberts (No. »

How The Ugly Truth Came To Be

4 December 2008 3:49 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith peeled her face off of the waterproof cushion of her poolside deck chair, and squinted at the early morning sun steadily rising over her sprawling backyard. She hadn't meant to pass out here next to her pool/office/super-fun, girls-night-in-atorium, but she learned a long time ago not to fight her muse, and right now Kiwi's muse was pounding the inside of her head like a mechanic hammering out the chassis of a badly dented car. Only the best ideas come from hangovers. Kiwi and her writing partner Karen even had a name for them: Ow-deas. Cute, right? Sooo cute. Last week, Kiwi and Karen sold an animated series to the Disney Channel called "Ow-deas" based on that word alone. In the pool, Karen was still sleeping on the raft she'd passed out on several hours earlier, her arms folded tightly around a yellow legal pad with. »

Trailer Park: Things Get Ugly

29 November 2008 12:02 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Time to kick back, have a turkey sandwich and dig into some post-Thanksgiving movie trailer goodness.

The Ugly Truth

Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler star in this romantic comedy. Butler is an abrasive, chauvinistic TV personality and Heigl is his romantically challenged producer. The story looks fairly predictable and this one is going to have to rely heavily on the charisma of the cast. The release date is April 3.

What Doesn't Kill You

Crime drama starring Mark Ruffalo and Ethan Hawke as childhood friends from Boston whose life of crime puts a strain on their personal lives. This looks reminiscent of other Boston-based crime flicks like The Departed and Gone Baby Gone, but looks like it has a passion all its own. This will be one to watch for and it goes into limited release on December 12.

The Trailer for 'The Ugly Truth' Isn't Too Ugly At All

28 November 2008 12:02 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

The trailer for The Ugly Truth, the romantic comedy starring Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl is up at the film's official website. The premise of this film sounded downright terrible -- a television producer is forced to deal with a chauvinistic correspondent, who decides to teach her what men want so that she can find love, with the pair discovering "an unexpected result" along the way. Could that result be ... love? Yeah, probably.

But you know what? The trailer's not half bad, and it really does seem like an updated and raunchier Pillow Talk. Plus, it's rated R, which gives me a lot of hope that it could be something akin to a Judd Apatow movie. I really expected a lot of PG-13 chauvanism, not lessons on how to sexily eat a hot dog, or Butler using the phrase "ladygarden."

Maybe I'm just a sucker for a Butler movie after all. »

Trailer: The Ugly Truth

27 November 2008 9:12 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Katherine Heigl has been typecast as the sort of uptight, awful woman all men hate but women seem to admire. Gerard Butler on the other hand appears to be slowly morphing into Mel Gibson, except not the good Lethal Weapon/Road Warrior Mel Gibson but the seemingly jerky but secretly soft and super-sensitive, What Women Want Mel Gibson. See Heigl and Butler go down in flames together, when he plays a shock jock and she plays bitchy Katherine Heigl in the brand new trailer for The Ugly Truth. With a title like that, I assume they want bad reviews. Well done on the trailer then folks, I'd say you're on track for a big thumbs down, though I'm sure the movie will be popular with the Patrick Dempsey crowd. The ugly truth about The Ugly Truth is that there's no reason anyone would want to see it. Thought I'd get »

First Trailer for Katherine Heigl's The Ugly Truth

27 November 2008 7:54 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Thought you were done with romantic comedies this week? Guess again. The first trailer for The Ugly Truth, starring Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl, has debuted online. First off, Heigl looks sexier than she has ever looked and her character is exactly my kind of girl. And second, I think Butler is as good in comedies as he is in action films. But unfortunately this is another stale and unoriginal story - the girl just wants love, she falls for the pretty guy who she really likes, but realizes it's really her friend (or the guy she doesn't like) that is actually perfect for her. Haven't we already seen this exact story enough already?! Watch the trailer for The Ugly Truth: [flv:http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/uglytruth_trlr_01_480p_dl.flv http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/uglytruth_trlr_01_480p_dl.jpg 598 282] You can also watch The Ugly Truth trailer in High Definition on AOL The Ugly Truth is directed by Australian filmmaker Robert Luketic, of Legally Blonde, Monster-in-Law, and »

27 November 2008 1:26 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The first trailer for Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl’s rom-com, The Ugly Truth, has just gone online, and with it comes something of a surprise: the movie will be rated R for sexual content and language. And maybe, just maybe, Gerry Butler’s American accent.In what seems like your standard rom-com set-up, Heigl plays a TV producer who take control of a show called The Ugly Truth, a no- nonsense self-help show presented by Butler’s boorish, unreconstructed chauvinist.It’s hate at first sight, yadda yadda yadda, Heigl wants to take him down, he wants to take down her particulars, then she falls for a surgeon and they cut a deal: Butler will give her advice that will seal the deal. If it doesn’t work, he’ll quit the show. Cue hilarious hijinks that might – just might – bring our gorgeous pairing together.So far, so conventional »

The first trailer for rom com The Ugly Truth, starring Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler has escaped into the wild, and you can watch it below.

Katherine Heigl Discovers 'The Ugly Truth'

26 November 2008 7:30 PM, PST | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

'Knocked Up' and "Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl returns to big-screen romance opposite '300' hunk Gerard Butler this coming April in the deliciously dirty comedy 'The Awful Truth' -- but why is she in for a rude awakening? "The Insider" has an exclusive first look!   In 'The Ugly Truth,' Katherine plays Abby, a romantically challenged morning show producer whose search for Mr. Perfect has left her hopelessly single. "I think we decided to make Abby just on the cusp of Ocd," explains Katherine. "Just a really uptight chick who is super organized, super on top of things, and likes that kind of control in every aspect of her life; she's really great at her job, but she tries to take that professionalism and those organizational skills into dating." Clearly it's not working. Now, Abby is in for a rude awakening when hardcore TV personality Mike »
