Warner Bros just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming "Horrible Bosses" sequel, bringing back Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey. The rest of the cast includes Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine. Check out the trailer below. Plot: Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor (Waltz) soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son (Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company. The new movie is directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy, Sex Drive) and is set to hit theaters on November 26th. Trailer: »
"I can't do the puss, that's gonna make me the most guilty!" After a brief teaser laid out the basics of the new scheme concocted by Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis in Horrible Bosses 2, now we get a different side of their shady plan. While they trio still want to screw over a would-be investor (Christoph Waltz) in their new company by kidnapping his son (Chris Pine), they soon learn that the jerk's offspring hates his father just as much as they do, and gets them into even deeper shit. This looks hilarious, and we get to see more of the return of Jennifer Aniston and Jamie Foxx as well. Watch it! Here's the new trailer for Sean Anders' Horrible Bosses 2 from Warner Bros. Pictures: Horrible Bosses 2 is directed be Sean Anders (That's My Boy), who also co-wrote the script with John Anders (both »

Last week a trailer for Adam Sandler's Men, Women & Children was released, and most of you seemed to like the first look at Jason Reitman's new movie. But just because Sandler is appearing in a film that likely won't feature that many fart jokes doesn't mean we've forgiven him for starring in movies like Jack And Jill, That's My Boy, and of course, Grown Ups. Jesse Shade created this very funny mash-up trailer using scenes from »

Blended - Warner Bros. - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Frank Coraci Cast: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Joel McHale, Kevin Nealon, Wendi McLendon-Covey. Full cast + crew Adam Sandler's been on autopilot for awhile now, with each lame new comedy drying up the well of good will he earned in the '90s and early '00s. So you'd expect Blended, his latest rom-com with costar Drew Barrymore, to be yet another Grown Ups or That's My Boy, but it's actually kind of a sweet movie about two single parents past their prime trying to move on with their lives. It's also got an absurd premise and is way too long at nearly two hours in length, but it's charming, Barrymore is delightful and it isn't riddled with a lot of...

It's taken a few months, but moviegoers finally found another summer movie they adore. "Boyhood" has a very passionate fan base, but that awards-worthy player still isn't in enough theaters to come close to qualifying for nationwide release. No, America and some parts of the world have gone nuts for James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and with not a moment to spare. Frankly, this summer movie season has mostly been a box office dud from a studio perspective. That's somewhat perplexing considering the quality of films in May and June were surprisingly strong. "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Neighbors," "22 Jump Street," "Maleficent," "The Fault in Our Stars," "Edge of Tomorrow" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" guaranteed there was at least one good movie opening almost every weekend over the first six weeks of the summer. The box office results were mixed, however. "Days" was the biggest »

After working with filmmaker James Gunn on his first two directorial efforts, Slither and Super, Michael Rooker makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy, opening in theaters August 1. While he's not one of the Guardians themselves, Yondu, an outlaw leading a team of miscreants known as The Ravagers, plays a critical role in this Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two adventure.
I recently had the chance to speak with Michael Rooker about the extensive commitment it took to just apply the makeup for this character, how filmmaker James Gunn's style has been altered (if at all) to build this immense sequel, and much more.
I read that you were worried that your schedule on The Walking Dead would conflict with this. That must have been an odd position to be in.
Michael Rooker: It totally did. It totally conflicted, and it was like, »
The first Horrible Bosses movie was, in truth, a better idea than it was a film. It had its moments, but was light on good, old fashioned guffaws. However, it was a sizeable hit, and this winter, we get Horrible Bosses 2.
The film sees the return of Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, along with Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Jamie Foxx. There's a new director this time though, with Sean Anders taking on the job, having previously helmed Sex Drive and That's My Boy.
A first teaser trailer for the movie has landed too, which you can see here. Horrible Bosses 2 is scheduled for a UK release on November 28th.

Yeah...they went there. The first trailer for "Horrible Bosses 2" is here, and it ends with a punchline so suggestively graphic that...well, I hope you're not eating right now, because it gets pretty gross. In any case, all the original cast members are in attendance for the upcoming sequel (save the one "horrible boss" who didn't make it out alive last time), which sees director Sean Anders ("That's My Boy," "Sex Drive") stepping in for previous helmer Seth Gordon. And at least based on this early look, he's aiming to top the shocking antics of the first movie.

Following the comedy hit of 2011, Horrible Bosses 2 is on the way now with Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day back together, this time working for themselves with a new business. However, we don't get a hint of that in the first teaser trailer. Instead, we get to see the trio visiting Bateman's boss (Kevin Spacey) in prison after being arrested at the end of the first film. And also the return of Day's boss (Jennifer Aniston), who is still keen on getting some action, but this time of a certain bathroom variety. One thing we do learn is there's a kidnapping involved and Motherfucker Jones (Jamie Foxx) is helping again. It's a great tease for the new comedy coming this fall, with a hint of Chris Pine freshness. Watch! Here's the first teaser trailer for Sean Anders' Horrible Bosses 2 from Warner Bros. & New Line: Horrible Bosses 2 »

New Line has released the first trailer for Horrible Bosses 2, directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy). Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis return to start a new business in the sequel. When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) takes over, "the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company." I somehow missed the first installment from Seth Gordon back in 2011, but this new trailer makes me want to remedy that Asap. It's also got the best use of "Turn Down for What" since, well, DJ Snake & Lil Jon's video. Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey also return in Horrible Bosses 2, scheduled for release on November 26th. Hit the jump to watch the first Horrible Bosses 2 trailer.

For some reason, we never reported on a developing project called Daddy's Home that would have reteamed Will Ferrell with Wedding Crashers star Vince Vaughn and director Etan Cohen behind the camera. But it doesn't matter, because the film has new life as Deadline reports the film will now actually reteam Ferrell will The Other Guys co-star Mark Wahlberg. But this time, it will be That's My Boy and Horrible Bosses 2 directing duo Sean Anders & John Morris at the helm with production beginning this fall. Paramount must like having Wahlberg around after Transformers: Age of Extinction and Pain & Gain. Cohen also scripted the film along with Brian Burns, Adam McKay & Chris Henchy with a story that follows Ferrell as a mild-mannered radio executive who strives to become the best step-father ever to his wife’s two children. However, things get a little complicated when their deadbeat, freeloading father (Wahlberg) returns, »

Last year, you might remember that Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn were kicking around "Daddy's Home" as a potential reunion vehicle, and while seeing them again together on the big screen in leading roles would've been nice. But this new plan is one we can roll with. Paramount wants to get moving on the project but swap in Mark Wahlberg for Vaughn. Uh, yes please. The Ferrell/Wahlberg combo slayed in "The Other Guys," and this vehicle seems perfect for more hilarious friction. Sean Anders and John Morris ("Sex Drive," "That's My Boy") would direct this one about a mild-mannered stepdad (Ferrell) who has to confront his children's real father (Wahlberg) and fight for the love of the kids. So yeah, basically an excuse for Ferrell and Wahlberg to bicker and battle and that's fine. If this works out, filming will begin this fall, so fingers crossed. Until then, here »

It was all a dream—until Christopher Wallace, Jr. made it a reality. The famous celebuspawn of late rapper Notorious B.I.G and singer Faith Evans achieved a milestone of his young adult life last week when he graduated from high school at Santa Margarita Catholic High School in California. Dressed in a bright green cap and gown, Biggie Smalls' oldest son (who is a spitting image of his father) proudly posed next to his famous mother while holding up a celebratory, homemade card that read "Class of 2014." "My first born son @cj_toa & I #proud," Evans captioned the happy picture. She also posted a photo of CeeJay receiving his diploma and wrote, "That's my boy @cj_toa »
For the three day weekend X-Men: Days of Future Past added another $100,000 to estimates, coming in at $90.8 million while tallying $110.5 million domestically for the four-day Memorial Day weekend and a $301.5 million worldwide total after four days in release. Interestingly enough, it's only the second largest opening for an X-Men film despite the rave reviews and "A" CinemaScore as 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, often considered one of the worst of the seven X-Men films released, hold the highest opening at $102.7 million. After a massive opening weekend, Godzilla fell 66.8% as X-Men took most of its audience. However, considering tracking only had the film opening around $70 million its opening weekend, which would have also been considered a solid opening for the monster movie, this weekend's $30.9 million ain't too shabby. The weekend's other new wide release was the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore comedy Blended, which was destroyed by critics and opened to the tune of $14.2 million. »

The mutants ruled the multiplex over Memorial Day weekend. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" shot to the top of the box-office heap over the holiday, bringing in $91.4 million Friday-Sunday and an estimated $111 million Friday-Monday in over 4,000 locations, making it the second-largest opening of any "X-Men" film behind only "X-Men: The Last Stand." That Brett Ratner-directed threequel brought in $102.8 million over Memorial Day weekend 2006 (and $122.8 million over all four days). Among more recent entries in the "X-Men" franchise, "Days of Future Past" was a vast improvement on 2011's "X-Men: First Class" ($55.1 million opening) as well as last summer's "The Wolverine" ($53.1 million), while among Memorial Day weekend openers it ranks fifth of all-time behind 2007's "Pirates of the Caribbean: The World's End," 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and last summer's "Fast & Furious 6." As compared with other superhero entries this year, "Days »

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" hit theaters this weekend and went on to gross slightly over $90 million and is on its way to earn $110 million through Monday. Internationally, the movie took in another $171 million for a worldwide debut of $261 million, the best of any "X-Men" film. The previous record was held by "X-Men: The Last Stand," which earned $203 million. "Days of Future Past" cost $200 million to make, which means that it's already profitable. And it's getting lots of praise from critics, currently sitting on a 91% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. The other wide release of the weekend was Adam Sandler's "Blended" comedy, which took third place with only $14.2 million and has a lousy 15% fresh rating. Even though it will eventually end up at $18 million through the holiday weekend, that's still one of the worst openings for a Sandler movie in recent times, only topping "That's My Boy" ($13.5 million). But because »
You'd have to figure the end of the line was coming for Adam Sandler sooner or later, no? Adam Sandler movies usually generate pretty negative reviews, but his latest, Blended, seemed to draw a different, more specific sort of ire, with critics blasting Sandler's particularly conservative view of contemporary families and sex roles. And now it seems as if audiences have also rejected Blended. Adam Sandler's latest opened to only $14.2 million, landing with a thud in third place this weekend. That's only slightly better than the $13.4 million taken in by That's My Boy a couple of years ago, the worst opening weekend of Sandler's career. Of course, that was an R-rated movie, and this is a more broadly appealing film rejoining Sandler with Drew Barrymore. The two last co-starred in 50 First Dates, which actually opened to slightly under $40 million ten years ago. That just wasn't enough nostalgia, however, for »
Los Angeles (AP) - A team of mutants overpowered one massive mutant monster at the box office during the Memorial Day holiday.
Fox-Marvel's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" debuted with $91 million beating last weekend's No. 1 hit, the Warner Bros. sci-fi adventure "Godzilla," which earned $31.4 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
"Days of Future Past" is estimated to earn nearly $110 million over the four-day extended holiday weekend, which would make it the fifth-highest Memorial Day opener just after last year's $117 million-grossing "Fast & Furious 6." ''Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" holds as the highest Memorial holiday debut ever with $140 million in 2007.
It appears the attention "Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer has received lately due a sexual assault lawsuit didn't deter fans from flocking to the theater. The director dropped out of doing any press for the film following the allegations because he didn't »
