Peter Rabbit has been a staple for children for more than 100 years. Now, Sony Pictures Animation is going to bring the beloved troublemaker into the modern age for a new generation, and The Late Show host James Corden is stepping out from behind his desk to help make it happen. The first trailer for the new Peter Rabbit movie has arrived, introducing us to James Corden's wild rabbit who is up to no good and having a great time doing it.
The first trailer for Peter Rabbit debuted on Yahoo! and gives us a great introduction to this new take on the classic character. Peter is still doing his best to make Mr. McGregor's life difficult, but this definitely feels like a more modern spin that younger viewers can get into that doesn't lose what the character has always been. It certainly looks to be a kids movie, no doubt, »
Everyone’s favorite rambunctious rabbit finds new life as a party animal in the first trailer for the live-action/animated comedy “Peter Rabbit.”
The film stars James Corden as the the titular mischievous bunny whose feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates as they rival for the affections of the animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). The film also stars Sam Neill and features the voices of Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley as his triplets Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.
The trailer shows Peter and his furry friends raiding Mr. McGregor’s vegetable garden and trashing his home in a wild party, then frantically dispersing when the farmer returns home unexpectedly. The critter exudes so much charm that even a fox who previously tried to eat him is a welcome party guest.

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.
Sandwiched in between the summer’s biggest blockbuster offerings and superhero tentpoles are a pair of outrageously funny outliers — comedies that, for all their raunchy gags and wild behavior, center squarely on women and their friendships — in the form of “Rough Night” and the upcoming release “Girls Trip.” Although both films lean hard on their comedic trappings, often in the form of booze-fueled bad behavior from their leading ladies, they also both find unexpected heart and charm in their deeper explorations of the relationships between the very different women that populate them.
But even with films like “Rough Night” and “Girls Trip” hitting the multiplex with a welcome dose of girl power, it seems that even this summer isn’t immune from the most tired and toxic of lady-centric comedy tropes: the dicks before chicks sub-genre. »

Updated: After coming under fire, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has revised its “clean version” initiative that allowed viewers to screen edited versions of two dozen of the studio’s films. Sony now says it won’t sell such movies if directors object.
“Our directors are of paramount importance to us and we want to respect those relationships to the utmost,” said Sphe president Man Jit Singh in a statement on Wednesday. “We believed we had obtained approvals from the filmmakers involved for use of their previously supervised television versions as a value added extra on sales of the full version. But if any of them are unhappy or have reconsidered, we will discontinue it for their films.” Related

Add Judd Apatow to the list of filmmakers and creators not too pumped about Sony Pictures’ newly announced “Clean Version” initiative. The filmmaker has issued a very colorful statement regarding the studio’s plan to offer edited — read: “clean” — versions of some of its titles on various streaming platforms. As Variety notes, these “Clean Versions” are the exact same ones used for broadcast TV or airline viewing, adding another weird wrinkle into the story.
Still, Apatow isn’t buying it, and he’s not alone.
The filmmaker took to Twitter yesterday to sound off on his thoughts on the plan, and they are, amusingly enough, the kind of thoughts that would definitely be edited out of a Clean Version of the Sony movie about this tweet.

The studio announced on June 7 that it was making the broadcast TV or airline version of these 24 titles available when a consumer purchases a film in its original form on iTunes, Vudu, and FandangoNOW. The DGA said in a statement Tuesday that Sony is violating the guild’s master contract with the major studios.
“Directors have the right to edit their feature films for every non-theatrical platform, plain and simple,” the DGA said. “Taking a director’s edit for one platform, and then releasing it on another — without giving the director the opportunity to edit — violates our Agreement. Throughout the years, the DGA has achieved hard-fought creative rights gains protecting our members from such practices. As creators of their films, directors »

Amanda Bynes has made such healthy strides over the last year that a judge has allowed her to regain control of her personal finances, People has exclusively learned.
After nearly three years of her mother Lynn acting as the conservator over both her personal and financial affairs, the once-troubled actress, 31, was deemed fit to handle the latter by the courts in March.
“Because Amanda was doing much better, in October 2016, after providing a detailed accounting of the estate and accounting for every expenditure and receipt, Lynn petitioned the court to terminate the conservatorship of the estate,” her conservatorship attorney Nyree Kolanjian tells People. »

Sony Pictures is making headlines for the introduction of their new “Clean Version” initiative. The effort is an attempt to bring the edited versions of movies that air on broadcast television and airplanes without mature content in them to home viewers through streaming platforms like iTunes, Vudu, and FandangoNOW. So if you ever wanted to stream “Step Brothers” without any curse words or explicit material, then you’re in luck. We’re not sure why you would, though.

Seth Rogen is equally baffled by the new initiative, the first round of which being released includes 24 films. Most of the titles are PG-13 and therefore won’t see too much of a dramatic edit, but that can’t be said for “Step Brothers,” which has to be the most head-scratching title included in the “Clean Version” project. »

Launch titles include: 50 First Dates, Battle Of The Year, Big Daddy, Captain Phillips, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Easy A, Elysium, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Goosebumps, Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, Hancock, Inferno, Moneyball, Pixels, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and White House Down.
Sony have already launched CleanVersionMovies.com where more info can be found. The controversial move hopes to combat piracy – some third-parties have been known to re-edit movies taking all of the more adult content out of movies – with Sony being the first major studio to make the move. »
