Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss play a couple who are pretty much sick of each other in the first full trailer for the dark comedy Listen Up Philip. Schwartzman (Saving Mr. Banks) stars as the eponymous novelist, who is invited by his favorite author to his home in the woods. This doesn't exactly bode well for Philip's floundering relationship with his girlfriend (Moss, Get Him to the Greek), especially when Philip meets the author's fetching daughter (Krysten Ritter, Veronica Mars). In one scene, Philip has a rather surprising response when he gets called out for bragging about his writing career.

Universal Pictures has released the alternate opening scene of Neighbors online. I loved director Nicholas Stoller’s (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Five-Year Engagement) new film when I saw it in theaters, but couldn’t help but think there were a ton of party images in the trailer that were absent from the film. Now I know which scene many of them came from, this deleted opening scene that introduces us to the frat members and the house they burned down (necessitating their move to a new neighborhood). This is actually only the first half of the deleted scene (which I've seen via iTunes extras), so it doesn't get into the explosive stuff yet. But it’s still hilarious. I actually think the whole movie is pretty great except for a few moments in the third act when they try to include unnecessary characters in the action. Hit the jump to »

Sony Pictures is moving forward with 23 Jump Street, a follow-up to this summer's 22 Jump Street, with Rodney Rothman coming aboard to write the screenplay. Be warned, there will be a few spoilers for those who haven't seen 22 Jump Street below, so read on at your own risk.
21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are overseeing the writing process as producers, alongside Neal H. Moritz and producers/stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, but they have not officially committed to directing the follow-up. Insiders claim the job is theirs if they want it.
At the end of 22 Jump Street, Ice Cube's Captain Dickson teased a possible sequel story with the line, "You two sons of bitches are going to medical school." The end credits offered a number of fake ideas for possible sequels, including culinary school, firefighter school, dance school and even a semester at sea. »
American audiences know comedy superstar Russell Brand best from his roles as the drunk, self-appointed spiritualist, semi-airheaded Brit in box-office successes like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Get Him to The Greek”, as well as his theatrical failures like the wholly unnecessary remake of “Arthur”. What they might not know is how active Brand is in the world of politics. His YouTube channel, which has around 500.000 subscribers, is full of videos where he uses his unique wit and energy to take down Fox News and various right-wing entities. Director Ondi Timoner’s ("Dig!," "We Live In Public") feature documentary about Brand, simply titled “Brand: The Film,” seems to cover the many facets of his eccentric personality, including his political leanings. In the first behind-the-scenes clip from the film, Brand and his friends, including Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, talk about his aspirations to literally change the world via fame. Brand’s fisting analogy (no pun. »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best.
On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Bad Neighbours, 2014.
Directed by Nicholas Stoller.
A couple with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house.
Bad Neighbours is the latest film to star comedian Seth Rogen. Rogen tends to come out with two or three comedies a year, and for the most part the majority of them I have rather enjoyed. This time around he teams up with Zac Efron as they go head to head trying to one up each other throughout the film.
Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne play Mac and Kelly, a married couple with a new baby girl who have just moved into a great new house. Everything is fine until they have some unwelcome new neighbors move in next door. A college fraternity lead by Teddy (Zac Efron) sets up camp »

On the night of June 9th 2007, a new television reality show called ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ went on air in the UK. On its first ever broadcast, a shy, unassuming man opened his mouth to sing the famous operatic aria ‘Nessun Dorma’, delivering a beautiful, stirring rendition that would change his life from that moment forward.
Swept up in the contagious emotion of Giacomo Puccini’s stunning aria, and the unlikely figure with crooked teeth and diluted confidence who had crooned it for them, the show’s three judges – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan – stared in awe at what they had just witnessed, while the audience of 2,000 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff erupted in a standing ovation.
Britain was instantly won over by Paul Potts, who was then working as a manager at the Port Talbot branch of The Carphone Warehouse, and followed him on his »

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.
Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs. I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »

Not many other events in the sporting world generate as much excitement, prediciton and anticipation than NFL draft day, so it’s no surprise that staple sports actor Kevin Costner’s (Bull Durham) in the movie.

Should he go with the consensus or trust his instincts and risk losing it all?

For Rose Byrne, being honored with the Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future award from its global brand ambassador Nicola Maramotti is incredible and also slightly ironic. “I think I’m sort of the middle-aged future, perhaps,” she jokes. Byrne is at a turning point in her career with comedy at the center.
She says she always wanted to try comedy, but did not get the chance to do so until her late 20s. “I’m still very new to it, so it’s actually far more challenging for me still,” says Byrne. “I’m going where it’s warm, as they say.”
More like heading where it’s hot. With major roles in comedies such as “Neighbors” and “Bridesmaids,” Byrne is now set to be seen in “This Is Where I Leave You,” alongside Jason Bateman and Tina Fey, and she is filming action-comedy “Spy” with Melissa McCarthy. »

Marvel is still trying to find a replacement for Edgar Wright on their Phase Three adventure Ant-Man, which isn't going well so far. After Anchorman director Adam McKay passed on the project this past weekend, We're the Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber was said to be a lock for the position. That changed this morning with two conflicting reports, one that said he wasn't interested in signing on, and another that claimed he'd never even been approached. Now, Marvel is reportedly eyeing two more directors firmly embedded in the world of comedy.
Most familiar to fans will be Nick Stoller, who hails from the Judd Apatow camp. He recently scored with the box office hit Neighbors starring Zac Efron and Seth Rogen. He's also know for Get Him to the Greek and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The later of which he worked alongside Ant-Man lead Paul Rudd on, with the two already having a strong rapport. »
With Edgar Wright out, Adam McKay and Rawson Thurber both passing, and Ruben Fleischer potentially doing "Ghostbusters 3," Marvel's race to find a director for "Ant-Man" continues. And this afternoon comes a couple more names you can toss into a hat. Deadline says that Nicholas Stoller and Michael Dowse are "making the rounds" as contenders for the gig. Both are certainly gifted comedy directors, with the former helming "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Get Him To The Greek," "The Five-Year Engagement" and the recent "Neighbors," while the latter has tackled "Goon," "Take Me Home Tonight," "Fubar" and the upcoming "The F Word." What neither have is tentpole experience when it comes to staging action, but then again, Marvel has that kind of support likely in place. At any rate, these are just a couple of names to argue about online, and you can do that below. Thoughts? Is "Ant-Man" really going to make its July 17, 2015 release date? »

Last month, Rose Byrne had plenty of fun with the boys in the frat vs. family comedy Neighbors, showing that she can hold her own alongside Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. But that wasn't her first round with R-rated comedy since she's also had supporting roles in Bridesmaids and Get Him to the Greek. With that trio of film's on her comedy resume, she's easily one of the top actresses who can dance back and forth between comedy and other projects like Insidious, X-Men: First Class and The Place Beyond the Pines. But for now, she may sticking with comedy as Universal is courting Byrne to lead a new comedy called The Something. In what sounds like a comedic take on Gravity, THR says the film follows astronauts who get lost in space, but that's all we know for now. Byrne would play an approachable beauty, though she hates being approached. »

Deadline is reporting that Rawson Marshall Thurber ("We're The Millers") is still the favorite for Ant-Man despite reports that he passed on the project yesterday. They also added two more names for us to bicker about, Nicholas Stoller and Michael Dowse. Stoller, is best known for directing 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall, 2010's Get Him to the Greek and 2014's Neighbors. Stoller also has plenty of writing credits, most notably: The Muppets, Gulliver's Travels and Yes Man. Dowse, is best known for directing Take Me Home Tonight and Goon. Very reliable sources tell me the Nicholas Stoller Ant-man rumors are not true.— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) June 4, 2014 Marvel's "mite"-iest hero will hit theaters July 17, 2015 courtesy of director Edgar Wright, from a screenplay Edgar co-wrote with Joe Cornish. The film stars: Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. The cast also includes: Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Corey Stoll, »
While our review of the frat comedy “Neighbors” is quite glowing and the R-Rated laffer was a major hit this spring, not all of us agree that the comedy is all that (this writer anyhow). However, one thing that no human on the planet can argue about the movie, full stop: Rose Byrne is excellent in it, probably the best part of the movie and a total scene stealer evidently born for comedy. And sure, we’ve seen her in comedy before, most memorably in “Bridesmaids,” and “Get Him To The Greek,” but in “Neighbors” Byrne has a mix of charm and go-for-brokeness that is vastly appealing. Obviously we’re not the only ones who think so. The producers of “Neighbors” (Seth Rogen's Point Grey Pictures and Good Universe) and Universal are courting the actress to star in “The Something,” a set-in-space comedy about astronauts who get lost in space. »

Following the success of Bad Neighbours, and her frequently very funny performance in it, the producers are looking to stay in the Rose Byrne Business. Seth Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures and Good Universe are trying to convince her to star in their next film, The Something.Few details are available about the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter, though we do know it’s set in space. Rodney Rothman, who has written films such as Get Him To The Greek, Grudge Match and this week's 22 Jump Street, is stepping up to direct this one, and told Collider about its tone a few years ago. It’s apparently a horror comedy “about four guys in space who have been there for five years and hate each other and it kind of becomes Alien. And they basically end up boarding a ship that has women on it. It’s the first »
This story first appeared in the June 13 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Rose Byrne has become the most in-demand supporting actress for comedies. Following turns in Bridesmaids, Get Him to the Greek and the May release Neighbors, the Damages alum is being courted to reteam with Neighbors' producers (Seth Rogen's Point Grey Pictures, Good Universe) and studio (Universal) for The Something, about astronauts who get lost in space, with former Late Show With David Letterman head writer Rodney Rothman directing.
