The teaser trailer for this winter's sequel Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb arrived this past summer, and now 20th Century Fox has unveiled a new poster for the film starring Ben Stiller. It's certainly one of the better posters we've seen for the franchise as it takes the ensemble cast that includes Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Rami Malek and more, and puts them into an M.C. Escher style image with staircases that don't seem to end. Yes, Robin Williams is in the poster too (this is one of his final performances) and you can even spot a tiny Steve Coogan and Owen Wilson if you scan carefully. Look! Here's the new poster for Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from Fox: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel, Date Night »

Shawn Levy is what happens when someone who has never forgotten what it means to be a boy becomes a dad.
The director of Real Steel, the Night at the Museum movies, and the new bittersweet family comedy This Is Where I Leave You (in theaters now), is an undeniable family guy. The father of four girls, he’s known for making movies about households run amok (2003’s Cheaper By the Dozen) and parents who desperately want an evening away (2010’s Date Night,) as well as fathers who redeem themselves in their kids’ eyes with the help of boxing robots or magical museums. »

The new family dramedy "This is Where I Leave You" gives us Jason Bateman as a cynical lout, Jane Fonda as a towering matriarch, and Adam Driver as a garrulous wild card. Those characterizations are to be expected, but the surprising actor/role pairing is Tina Fey with her character Wendy Altman, who is more troubled and conflicted than Liz Lemon ever was. Director Shawn Levy, who also helmed the Fey project "Date Night," specifically chose Fey for her role because it would be a stretch for her. In fact, he enjoys pushing Tina Fey away from her comfort zone of wry humor. "I have gotten to know Tina a little bit in real life. A fair bit," Levy told us. "I know she has more colors to her. Different moods to her. I got really excited at the chance of bringing those out and encouraging her to show what »

I can see the headlines now, 'Nicolas Cage in good film shocker!' It's about time too. Knowing, Season of the Witch, Bangkok Dangerous - the taxman sure has a lot to answer for. I haven't enjoyed a Nicolas Cage movie this much since 2005's Lord of War, though parts of me still have a thing for Drive Angry. That might have more to do with Amber Heard than anything else mind. A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary backwoods of the South in Joe, a gritty adaptation of Larry Brown's celebrated novel. Directed by David Gordon Green, who is now forgiven for inflicting Your Highness and The Sitter on the world, returns to his Indie roots for a film that finally gives Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage something to sink his teeth into. Nick stars as hard-living, hot-tempered ex-con Joe Ransom, who is »
This is Where I Judge You: In the Great Well of Family Drama, Levy Is Dry
Based on the acclaimed novel by Jonathan Tropper, who adapts his own screenplay, This Is Where I Leave You hardly lives up to the Sirkian soap as its delightfully sappy title would lead you to predict. Tropper, with the aid of mainstream heavy Shawn Levy (who sports a resume that includes those Night at the Museum films and Real Steel), has managed to give us a film that feels like the Grand Hotel of family reunion dramas. A nest of WASPs wades around under the disguise of their mixed Jewish ancestry to gimmicky effect in a drama about a large number of otherwise privileged people chronically unhappy with their inability to transcend their conditioning and seek fulfillment from a fabricated, pedestrian lifestyle. Levy and Tropper aim for middle ground with a portrait of familial »

“I’ve spent my whole life playing it safe,” whines Judd Altman (Jason Bateman), the middle-class milquetoast at the center of This Is Where I Leave You. Yes, well, so has director Shawn Levy, but on the basis of his latest vacuous trifle he has no apparent intention, as Altman does, of effecting a much-needed change. Doubtless there are more incompetent filmmakers working in Hollywood today, but I’m hard-pressed to think of a more uninteresting one; the dozen-odd dramatic comedies he’s churned out over the past 15 years represent the height of by-committee blandness, each in turn number-crunched and market-calibrated to appeal to the broadest demographic. Films like Date Night and The Internship are nothing if not rousing feats of four- »
We're so excited, but we can't help thinking about Nick's first reality series, and pop-culture phenomenon, 'Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica'.
Breaking reality TV news: Nick Lachey has a new series coming to A&E!
Yes, the same Nick Lachey from the '90s boy-band 98 Degrees, a brief guest stint on One Tree Hill, and a plethora of Trl episodes, has been gifted with a brand-new "docuseries" reality show, and we are way too excited.
Lachey's Bar stars Nick and his brother/former band-mate Drew Lachey in their quest to open a bar in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. According to the A&E press release, Nick and Drew have decided to "embark on a lifelong dream of opening a bar together." (Because after achieving world-wide musical fame and selling more than 10 million records worldwide, a bar in Ohio is, of course, the next natural step.)

Date night for Mr. and Mrs. Dorsey! After tying the knot in a secret, surprise wedding in July, Naya Rivera and her new husband Ryan Dorsey made their first official appearance as husband and wife on Tuesday, Aug. 12. The happy couple attended the latest stop on Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience World Tour, held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Rivera, 27, held hands with her actor hubby outside of the stadium and cozied up to him in their seats in the Puma VIP suite [...] »
Fresh from the first images of the film, 20th Century Fox has released the first poster and trailer for their upcoming blockbuster sequel Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb…
Ben Stiller (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) and his gang of historical figures are back for the second sequel in the hugely popular franchise that has made over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The third in the series sees Stiller’s security guard and his historical friends hopping across the channel to London to solve a new mystery in the British Museum’s Egyptian exhibits, whilst having to negotiate their way in and around the city streets.
Along with Stiller, the film stars Robin Williams (Mrs. Doubtfire), Owen Wilson (Meet the Parents), Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa), Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Ricky Gervais (Muppets Most Wanted) and Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3 »

"Their greatest adventure... has just begun!" Really? 20th Century Fox has debuted the first full-length teaser trailer for Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third movie in the adventure-comedy franchise Night at the Museum, which started at the Museum of Natural History some eight years ago. Ben Stiller returns along with the eclectic cast of actors being goofy and playing historical figures, including Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt, Owen Wilson as Jedediah, Rami Malek as Ahkmenrah, Mizuo Peck as Sacajawea, Dan Stevens as Sir Lancelot, plus Ben Kingsley, Rebel Wilson and Ricky Gervais. I'm not really sure this looks any good anymore, but if you're still interested fire it up.

In what will likely be the final adventure in this family friendly franchise, Ben Stiller is back in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and the first photos from the film have arrived. We get to see Robin Williams back as Teddy Roosevelt, and also Dan Stevens joining the film as Lancelot (but no sign of Rebel Wilson yet). This time the action moves across the pond in London's British Museum. This time the Egyptian Golden Tablet of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah, which makes the museum exhibits come to life at night, is corroding, and something must be done to save it. This will probably be more of the same, but whatever. Here's the first photos from Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from USA Today: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel, »

Date night! Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian kept her growing baby bump covered as she and longtime beau Scott Disick attended the 2014 Baby Buggy Summer Dinner at a private residence in the Hamptons, N.Y., on Saturday, July 26. The 35-year-old mom of son Mason, 4, and daughter Penelope, 2, glowed in a long-sleeve white dress for the event. She accessorized with a gold clutch and kept her dark locks down. Kardashian and Disick, 31, walked arm-in-arm while posing for photographs together before heading into the event, which was hosted [...] »
Liv Tyler got particularly honest on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Wednesday, when she admitted that she's easily distracted by her The Leftovers co-star Justin Theroux's "large bulge."
"There was this scene where he was jogging," Tyler said about Theroux. "And there was quite a large bulge in his sweatpants and it was all over."
"I get distracted when I watch the pilot, definitely," Tyler admitted. "I'm like, 'Can't help but look there.' But I've never noticed the bulge other times."
A snapshot of the scene in question is below -- photographers actually snapped Theroux filming for the HBO show in New York City in June 2013, seemingly going commando while jogging.
And though Theroux is of course taken by his fiancée Jennifer Aniston, Tyler admits »
Date night in jorts! Penn Badgley and his girlfriend Domino Kirke went out for a summer stroll in NYC on Sunday, July 13, both wearing denim shorts. For the evening walk around Manhattan's West Village, Badgley wore a pair of indigo blue denim shorts cuffed above his kneecaps. The Gossip Girl alum, 27, sported scruff and shades, as well as a clean white T-shirt and matching sneakers. His lady Kirke (the younger sister of Girls star Jemima Kirke) also stepped out in a pair of tiny stonewash denim [...] »
A little different from his recent efforts like The Night at the Museum series, Real Steel, and Date Night, director Shawn Levy is mixing a bit of drama with his comedy with This Is Where I Leave You. Starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, and Jane Fonda, it tells the story of a dysfunctional family forced together when their father dies. Bringing together some very talented actors, there is a lot to like about this trailer, especially watching the cast play off each other. Check it out below. Released: 12th September (Irl/U.K.) / 19th September (U.S.) »

Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
The dramatic comedy is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development »

So maybe we all can just agree to disagree about Transformers. The critical establishment collectively agreed to give Michael Bay the benefit of the doubt with 2011′s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which earned semi-decent reviews mainly because it was less obnoxiously worse than Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. But Trans4mers led that same critical establishment into hilarious paroxysms of scathing invective. (EW’s own Chris Nashawaty called it “numbing, exhausting, and migraine-inducing.”) Predictably, the movie made $100 million over the weekend.
Bad movies have made a lot of money since forever. There’s a generation of young-dude moviegoers who »

Chicago – Date night at the movies has a new alternative to the summer sci-fi and animation with “Think Like a Man Too.” The sequel to the popular first film has a burst of creative juice from an energetic cast, and dares to do something different with the bachelor party in Las Vegas theme.
What distinguishes the film is that the women – putting on their own bachelorette event in Las Vegas – in many ways outdo the guys. Part of the is due to the very funny Wendi Covey-McLendon (the grossed out Mom in “Bridesmaids”) who gets her freak on and steals every scene. But also, there is the super-hot personality of Kevin Hart, in collaboration with director Tim Story, who keeps the proceedings loose and entertaining. From the beginning to the end, with Hart and Story the conductors, the guys and gals of “Think Like a Man Too” just want to have fun. »

There's only so long that I can imagine the ridiculous plot of Sex Tape remaining funny before reality kicks in, but the red band trailer does hint at some hilarity (and a little Date Night) as well as a much skinnier Jason Segel than I remember. Set to hit theaters on July 18 the film reunites Segel with his Bad Teacher co-star, Cameron Diaz and director Jake Kasdan, in a film where Segel and Diaz play a married couple that record a sex tape that accidentally finds its way into the cloud, available to all their friends, family, co-workers, etc. Watching the trailer I hope Rob Corddry and Ellie Kemper are given a chance to bring a lot to this one, and Rob Lowe playing Diaz's coke-sniffing, sex addicted boss seems rather inspired as well. Give it a look below. »

Award-winning composer Christophe Beck scores the action-drama Edge Of Tomorrow, directed by Doug Liman and starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. The film follows a soldier (Cruise) who finds himself caught in a time loop while battling an alien invasion.
The Edge Of Tomorrow soundtrack will be released on Watertower Records. In theaters now, read Jim Batts’ review Here. Earlier this week I spoke with the composer about his latest film soundtrack.
Christophe Beck is behind the score to the Golden Globe- and Oscar-winning film Frozen. The Frozen soundtrack, certified platinum 11 weeks after its release, has sold more than one million copies, and spent five non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Beck returned to the Muppets in Muppets Most Wanted after scoring The Muppets in 2011. He’s also scored the blockbuster Hangover trilogy, Tower Heist, Due Date, Date Night and Pitch Perfect. He staged the drama for »
