Only a few days ago, the trailer was leaked online, but now Paramount Pictures has officially unleashed the new teaser. Check it out here…
2001’s Zoolander is oftentimes hailed as one of the funniest comedies of the previous decade. Although it was not a major box office success, raking in around $60 million worldwide on a $28 million budget, over the years it has become a beloved cult classic.
Zoolander 2 is set for release on February 12th, 2016, with Stiller returning alongside Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, Billy Zane and Will Ferrell, while new additions include Penelope Cruz (Nine), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns) and Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse). Stiller also is directing the film, »

The producer of the much-hyped female-fronted reboot of the classic 1980s comedy Ghostbusters has denied reports that a rival male team is also heading for cinemas.
Ivan Reitman, who directed 1984’s original Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel, said in a statement that the only new film on its way to multiplexes would be the confirmed version overseen by Bridesmaids’ film-maker Paul Feig, starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig alongside Saturday Night Live alumni Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Feig’s film is due in July 2016 and has become a major talking point following the director’s decision to gender-swap the original’s central spirit-bashing quartet.

Ellie Kemper's high school drama teacher was hotter than yours! The "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star opened up about taking a high school drama class taught by the "Mad Men" star during the Netflix TCA panel on Tuesday. Hamm was an alum at Kemper's high school and came back after college to teach drama for one year, where the red-headed beauty was lucky enough to study under the "Bridesmaids" star! "He was not ugly," the 35-year-old told reporters of Hamm. "He was a wonderful teacher." "I was in ninth grade and he taught me the improv section of my theater class, and everyone loved him," she added. The actors recently reunited on "The Office" alum's new show, where Hamm made a guest appearance as Rev. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne. "When they told us that he would be playing the reverend, it was fantastic. But I was a little scared," Kemper »

Yesterday we brought you news about a second upcoming Ghostbusters movie, with screenwriter Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) revealing that he’d finished the script for a instalment from directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and producer Ivan Reitman, who of course helmed the original two films.
Well, Reitman has now issued a statement, shooting down the report: “There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”

While she may be better known for her superb funny-girl acting chops—cough, cough Bridesmaids or Gilmore Girls—Melissa McCarthy is also a pretty great fashion designer. How do we know this? Well, the actress shared the first images from her debut collection, Melissa McCarthy Seven7, with Vogue yesterday—and color us impressed! The line meets the everyday gal's needs, with a versatile range of pieces and sizes (ranging from 4 to 28) that all ring in at or under $150 (sadly, no bridesmaids dresses are in the collection…yet). "Some days I want to be prim and proper, and others I want to be in a band. I lost the ability to do that with clothes," McCarthy told »
Not long after the announcement of the reboot that shocked the world, an all female lead Ghostbusters directed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, it was announced that Sony Pictures was putting into production another spinoff. One that involved now mega stars Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum. While Feig was dissappointed and made it clear he had nothing to do with male lead Ghostbusters project, we were intrigued.
While Pratt has denied his involvment with the project, MTV has spoken to screen writer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) who says that not only is the project deffinetly in the works, they have a script.
Pearce said "I've finished on that in the last couple of weeks. Obviously it's top secret, but there's a gigantic bold idea that i came up with, »

To celebrate the occasion, Meghan’s fans can check out her social sites for a Peanuts-inspired image of the pop star in true-to-style round headed glory.
According to Lucy van Pelt, the song, “Better When I’m Dancin’,” promises to knock your block off. Music enthusiasts Snoopy and Woodstock could not be reached for comment, but did release this statement, “’/’’!’”/’/’!/’!’” The Peanuts own virtuoso Schroeder added, “Please don’t touch my piano.”
Meghan Trainor commented: “I was thrilled to be offered the chance to see an early version of The Peanuts Movie – and to then be inspired to write a song that captured the film’s spirit, energy and sense of joy. It was a pleasure to work with director Steve Martino to make sure the song did right by the incredible characters that the »

If Kristen Wiig's appearance in that Lifetime melodrama "A Deadly Adoption" is any indication, she'll be weirding us out for years to come. Fortunately, we think we can single out her weirdest moment on film so far. It's coming to Netflix in August. "Welcome to Me" (August 6) In the short time since Kristen Wiig left "SNL" in 2012, she's starred in a host of movies. Some are quaint indies (like "The Skeleton Twins") and some were heartfelt farces ("Bridesmaids"), but "Welcome to Me" is perhaps her most provocative and strange feature. Wiig plays a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder who uses a financial windfall to pay for her own talk show. Is it her finest hour? No, but it sees her costarring with the formidable Linda Cardellini, which is a treat. "Two Days, One Night" (August 11) The surprise Best Actress nomination of 2014 that devastated the Jennifer Aniston fan community. Yes to Marion Cotillard! »

Emmy winner and big-screen comedian Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly, Spy) and her actor/director husband Ben Falcone (New Girl, Bridesmaids) will executive-produce a TV Land comedy pilot about — and written by — their friends from the Groundlings comedy troupe.

Tentatively titled Friends With Melissa, the single-camera comedy will be penned and inspired by the lives of Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras, who watched as peers from The Groundlings (McCarthy and Falcone included) went on to star in film comedies and win Oscars, while they »
For some people, the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot is cause for celebration, but for others it's being treated as something akin to the next coming of Gozer the Gozerian – an apocalyptic event likely to result in human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, and mass hysteria. No matter which side of the Ghostbusters divide you fall on, though, you can be certain that Bridesmaids director Paul Feig's spin on the 1984 classic is not only happening, but it's going to have people talking right up to – and likely following – its arrival in theaters. Still, while remakes and reboots are all the rage these days, their track record (so far) hasn't exactly been the stuff of franchise-restarting Hollywood dreams. So what can Ghostbusters do to avoid...

One word: Ahhh. That was the sound of utter bewilderment, because taking a look back at Rose Byrne's best red carpet hits is just that good. The now-36-year-old actress isn't an everyday fixture on the red carpet, so it's been a while since we've appreciated her stunning collection of wardrobe hits. But as today is her birthday, there's no better time to give the Bridesmaids star a little style love. From this year's Met Gala in an intricate textured Carolina Herrera design to the 2009 Emmys in a fit-for-a-princess Valentino gown, Rose has a healthy range of red carpet styles. Although, we're not sure anything beats her column gown silhouettes, as is evidenced by her crisp »
Australian actress Rose Byrne turns 36 on Friday, so to celebrate, we're taking a look back at some of her memorable moments through the years. From her hilarious character in 2011's Bridesmaids to her funny turns in Neighbors and Spy, she's had an exciting couple of years in the spotlight, but she's been making memorable movie appearances for more than a decade. Back in 2002, Rose played Dormé in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones before starring alongside Brad Pitt in 2004's Troy. Since then, she's won over fans with her style, too, regularly turning heads with her red carpet looks. In honor of Rose's birthday this week, take a look at some of her stunning Hollywood evolution. »
"Neighbors" was a surprise hit when it debuted last year, and now, the cast for its sequel is starting to take shape.
Variety reports that Chloe Grace Moretz is currently in negotiations to co-star in "Neighbors 2," which is re-teaming leads Zac Efron and Seth Rogen. There's no word yet on who Moretz is playing, and no plot details about the sequel have been released so far.
"Neighbors 2" will mark a rare foray into comedy in Moretz's already-impressive career. Perhaps this is a turning point for the young actress? After all, her soon-to-be-costar, Rose Byrne (who's also reprising her role from the original), was also a primarily dramatic actress before she became a comedic powerhouse in flicks like "Bridesmaids" and "Spy."

When Melissa McCarthy won the Emmy for "Mike and Molly" in 2011, awards pundits wondered if her mega success in the film "Bridesmaids" helped push her over the edge. Could a similar fate happen to Amy Schumer this year? The Comedy Central star was nominated for four Emmys last week for acting, producing, writing and directing her variety series "Inside Amy Schumer," just as her new comedy film "Trainwreck" opened to a boffo $30 million weekend. Talk about perfect timing. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders As you can see on our Best Comedy Actress chart to the right, Gold Derby's combined rankings of our Experts, Editors, Users and Top 24 Users (those who made the best predictions last year) have Schumer in third place to win this race with 11/2 odds.

Who won the box office this week? Depends on how you look at it.
We treat the box office like a horse race every weekend, as if the new and old movies were all competing on the same playing field. But the truth is, on any given weekend, every new release is more like a stock Ipo, each with its own unique background and set of expectations. They all just happen to be launching at the same time.
So you could view the weekly winner, not necessarily as the movie that sold the most tickets, but the movie that did the best on its own terms. Here's a look at the movies that made the biggest splash at the ticket counter this weekend, depending on which measure you use.
"Ant-Man": Yes, "Ant-Man" sold the most tickets in absolute numbers, an estimated $58.0 million worth. But considering how high Marvel has »

“This is the birth of a new film star,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “She’s going to get tons of offers. This puts her in the same realm as Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig.”
Schumer was already edging along the zeitgeist thanks to her sketch show “Inside Amy Schumer,” but “Trainwreck” propels her to household name terrain. The raunchy, but also surprisingly heartfelt, romantic comedy introduced the salty standup and television personality to wider film audiences, racking up $30.2 million. That’s more than “Bridesmaids,” “Spy” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” made in their launches — impressive company considering that those films starred A-listers like Wiig, McCarthy and Steve Carell.
Most of the credit goes to Schumer, who »

Films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have come to be recognized as cinematic juggernauts, but not everything can be a near-$100 million opener. Ant-Man, somewhat of a lesser known Marvel property when it comes to general audiences, ended up with the second smallest opening weekend for any of the twelve McU properties to date, opening with $58 million, just a couple million ahead of 2008's The Incredible Hulk, which hardly seems like an McU movie at this point. That said, the audience still loved it, giving it an opening day "A" CinemaScore and if history of Marvel movies tell us anything, even if the first one opens weak that doesn't mean the second one will. Thor opened with $65.7 million in 2011 and Captain America: The First Avenger opened with $65 million that same year. In 2013, Thor: The Dark World blew that original opening away with $85.7 million while Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened with $95 million just last year. »

As Sony’s high-profile Ghostbusters reboot shoots in Boston, with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig at the helm, new details about the next generation of (all-female!) boogieman blasters have emerged. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Feig has seemingly leaked the names of all four leads in the 2016 pic.
“Okay, here you go,” Feig tweeted. “Erin Gilbert, Jillian Holtzmann, Abby Yates and Patty Tolan. Now you know even more.”

Feig declined to reveal which actors were playing each of the above characters, though it was previously revealed by Feig that Kate McKinnon is playing Holtzmann, and Melissa McCarthy’s nametag would suggest she’s playing Yates. That leaves Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones unaccounted for. IMDb accredits Wiig with the role of “Erin Gabler »
