The teaser trailer for "Last Vegas" has it right when it touts that the movie is "going to be legendary." The film brings together esteemed actors Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline in a "The Hangover"-style romp set in Las Vegas.
Except, with a cast like this, "Last Vegas" could end up being significantly better than "The Hangover," despite all that movie's wonderful absurdities like hanging out with Mike Tyson's tiger or finding the wrong Doug. There's a scene in the "Last Vegas" trailer where Freeman is drunk on Vodka Red Bulls, and the result is kind of hilarious.
Directed by Jon Turteltaub, "Last Vegas" also feels a lot like "Grown Ups" on crack. In that film, Adam Sandler brought together some of his closest comedian friends to star in an ensemble comedy where the biggest draw is just seeing them riff off of one another. »

• If Jon Favreau’s Chef was ever in danger of receiving adequate financing, he can probably breathe easy now. Robert Downey Jr. has signed on to join the independent comedy. Downey Jr. and Favreau have worked together for years on the Iron Man franchise. Favreau plays the role of Happy Hogan, and also directed the first two films.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
It’s always apparent, when watching Mad Men, how much the drama draws from its setting. This is a period piece, no matter how effectively the writers enrich our characters and focus on their own personal triumphs and failures. Matthew Weiner has often cited his desire to keep the show character driven while the backdrop just unfolds around them, but as is the case in real life, the political and cultural atmosphere in which our characters exist deeply shapes their lives.
“The Flood” brings history to the forefront, as did “The Grown Ups” back in Season 3 where we watched the Mad Men world stunned and hunched around TV sets, all the while their lives continuing around them, unable to stop. That episode played with the Hitchcockian device of showing life go on, oblivious, after a terrible event. Margaret’s sad wedding set amidst the tragedy was »

<< Continued from #1-1112. World War Z (June 21): With the success of AMC's The Walking Dead and February's Warm Bodies ($66.2 million), it's safe to say that zombies are very popular right now. World War Z is the first big-budget aspiring blockbuster featuring the creatures, though casual audiences may have a tough time associating the movie's fast-moving swarms of CGI zombies with the slow-moving ones they are used to. With star Brad Pitt and what's sure to be a hefty marketing effort from Paramount, World War Z will likely do fine, but opening right after Man of Steel is going to keep this down. (Domestic: $135 million, Foreign: $285 million)13. Epic (May 24): Action-oriented animated movies (as opposed to comedic ones) aren't historically all that successful, and Epic's story calls to mind notorious animated bomb The Ant Bully ($28.1 million). Still, from a scheduling perspective, Epic is in great shape: Memorial Day weekend »

It might not be apparent from the weather map just yet, but summer movie season is just around the corner. On May 3, Disney and Marvel will open Hollywood's most lucrative four months of the year with "Iron Man 3," a sequel to 2010's "Iron Man 2" that takes place after the events of "Marvel's The Avengers." (It's not as confusing as that might sound.)
"Iron Man 3" is a fitting leadoff hitter for the 2013 summer movie season: It's got flashy stars (Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow reprise their "Iron Man" roles), large-scale effects, a third dimension and plenty of marking tie-ins. (Note the Lego version of Tony Stark.)
If you think "Iron Man 3" is the only game in town this summer, however, films like "Star Trek Into Darkness," "Fast and Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III," "Man of Steel," "The Lone Ranger" and "Grown Ups" would likely beg to differ. »

Salma Hayek and Taylor Lautner teamed up for a photocall in Cancun yesterday as part of promotions for their upcoming movie Grown Ups 2. The duo was also joined by fellow castmates Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and David Spade, all of whom attended CinemaCon with Salma and Taylor on Wednesday in Las Vegas. Missing from both promotional stops were the group's other costars Maya Rudolph and Chris Rock. The Grown Ups 2 cast did get together as a whole, though, for an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which aired on Wednesday as well. During the show Maya finally confirmed she was pregnant with her fourth child, and the cast joked that she will be naming her newborn Grown Ups 3. Apart from the funny times Salma is partaking in during her promotional duties, she has a more serious project well in the works. Salma cofounded the Chime For Change women's »

Funnyman Adam Sandler may be on the verge of spending serious money on Salma Hayek. Following the success of the 2010 Grown Ups, Sandler, 46, reportedly purchased Maseratis for several of his male costars - but not for his his on-screen wife. However, if the upcoming Grown Ups 2 outperforms its predecessor at the box office, Sandler implied that this time around he will ante up. "If this one does better, he's going to get me something better," Hayek, also 46, told the crowd at CinemaCon on Wednesday during a Sony Pictures presentation. "A Ferrari," Sandler told the movie theater owners and film distributors. »

Tonight was the night for Sony Pictures Entertainment. President of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer assumed the podium and appeared to be having more fun than anyone, cracking jokes and recalling funny memories from past CinemaCon presentations. Just as he suggests crazy shenanigans are bound to go down this year too, a quartet of bugle players storm the stage from one end while a pair of cushy chairs are carried in from the other, one with Adam Sandler and Salma Hayek and the other with David Spade and Kevin James.

The actor discusses the pleasures of anonymity, the tribulations of single motherhood and the lightbulb moment she had with Mike Leigh
What got you started?
I had two starts, really. The first was going to the Italia Conti stage school, aged 15. I'd gone to sing, but one day I found myself doing an improvisation and thought, "Oh God, I quite like this acting thing." The second start was meeting Mike Leigh when I was 22. He showed me I could play people that weren't like me. It was like a lightbulb going off.
What was your big breakthrough?
Making a film called Grown Ups with Mike Leigh in 1980. Both of the pieces we'd worked on together before that hadn't actually come to anything. First tThere was a radio play, Too Much of a Good Thing, about a girl losing her virginity, which got banned initially by the BBC for its realistic-sounding sex scenes. »

Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James, and Chris Rock are all back in action for "Grown Ups 2."
