3 March 2015 8:10 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Unfinished Business, coming to UK cinemas 6th March, staring Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco, and Sienna Miller, follows the story of a businessman (Vaughn) and his two employees (Franco and Wilkinson) who travel to Berlin, Germany to close the biggest business deal of their lives. However, things don’t go to plan when they bump into their competitor (Miller) who used to be Vaughn’s boss. What follows is a series of embarrassing and awkward twists that’ll keep you entertained throughout, including a brief stop in at a bondage festival and being caught in the middle of a violent city protest.

To celebrate the release of Unfinished Business we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 awkward moments in film. Check them out below:

Chris O'Dowd: 'I don't know if Us version of Moone Boy will work'

2 March 2015 7:11 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Chris O'Dowd has admitted that he is not sure whether a Us adaptation of Moone Boy will work.

The Bridesmaids star, who is currently writing a Us script after ABC picked up a pilot, told Radio Times that the situation of the show will be the same.

"We've taken the basic premise - a working-class family where the kid has an imaginary friend - but we're setting it in the Midwest, not Boyle," O'Dowd explained.

"I don't know if it will work, to be honest. The tone on network television in America is so different, particularly for comedy.

"It needs to be a lot warmer and Moone Boy is already very warm. If you're not careful it can become saccharine."

Moone Boy follows the story of Martin Moone and his imaginary friend as he grows up in rural Ireland. The character of Martin is based on a younger O'Dowd.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Ellie Kemper stars in Tina Fey's sunny sitcom

28 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After lighting up the Us Office and Bridesmaids, Kemper is bringing her trademark cheeriness to a new Netflix series about a religious cult survivor

In 2015, it seems that few things are quite as beloved by TV execs as the apocalypse. From relentlessly grim fare such as zombie saga The Walking Dead and post-Rapture drama The Leftovers, to more knockabout stuff like ITV2’s Cockroaches (think The Road, but with the added misery of having to spend the end of days with Jack Whitehall) and Fox’s forthcoming Will Forte comedy The Last Man On Earth, you can scarcely move for charcoal-grey skies and burning piles of rubbish. And that’s without factoring in the real-world gloom over on the news channels.

It’s oddly refreshing, then, to come upon a show where the end of the world isn’t actually upon us. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a new Netflix sitcom, opens with its titular character, »

Virginia Madsen Joins Jennifer Lawrence In David O. Russell’s Joy

26 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once you’re in with David O. Russell, you’re really in. The Oscar-nominated director’s next film, buzzy biopic Joy, will reunite him with American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, ensuring another round of Oscar nominations for them all. Luckily, though, it won’t be all familiar faces for Russell: Sideways actress Virginia Madsen has just joined the cast, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

The film, set for a prime awards season release on Christmas Day this year, will focus on Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano (Lawrence), who began inventing at a young age and eventually hit it big with the Mop and Huggable Hampers, in addition to more than 100 other patents. As her empire grew, Mangano also juggled the responsibilities of playing single mom to three children.

Paul Feig says his Ghostbusters reboot is inspired by The Walking Dead

25 February 2015 8:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already heard that Paul Feig has compared his Ghostbusters reboot to Night at the Museum, and today we’ve got a new comparison piece. And this one seems a bit more fitting of Ghostbusters than the Ben Stiller vehicle.

While on The Talking Dead on AMC, the Bridesmaids director talked about what inspirations he was taking for his all-female vision of Ghostbusters.

“I will say, I was very inspired by [The Walking Dead],” Feig said. “What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run. And that’s something, an element I want to bring to this Ghostbusters reboot is having to get through these various obstacles that are supernatural and all that. I really feed off of The Walking Dead.”

Paul Feig's Ghostbusters Reboot Will Be Inspired By... The Walking Dead?

25 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

AMC's The Walking Dead is by far one of the most gruesome, bleak, intense, and -- it must be said -- humourless shows currently on TV; and it'll apparently be influencing Paul Feig's upcoming reboot (and he confirms that it will be a 100% reboot) of beloved horror comedy, Ghostbusters. The Bridesmaids director was a guest on The Talking Dead immediately following Sunday's episode, and when quizzed about whether he'd have any brain-eaters in the movie or not, he revealed that the zombie survival series would inspire his take on the '80s classic. "I will say, I was very inspired by this show. What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run.

Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

24 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »

"I really feed off "The Walking Dead", said Feig.

Kristen Wiig goes crazy for Oprah in the trailer for Welcome To Me

20 February 2015 9:55 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Kristen Wiig has exploded in popularity since starring in Bridesmaids a couple of years ago. She left Saturday Night Live and has been consistently starring in films ranging from indie darlings like The Skeleton Twins to the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. But, like every funny actress, she also is stretching herself dramatically. Welcome To Me still retains the kooky nature of what makes Wiig so likeable but also gives her a meatier dramatic role to play with. The first trailer for Welcome »

Watch: Kristen Wiig Is A Winner In New Trailer For 'Welcome To Me'

20 February 2015 9:39 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Coming out of "Saturday Night Live" and into the movie world is not an easy path (ask Joe Piscopo, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Norm MacDonald... you get the idea... ) but you have to admire how Kristen Wiig has used the opportunities that have landed in front of her. After the breakout smash "Bridesmaids," she resisted the idea of jumping into a sequel, and instead diversified with lots of indie pictures, hitting Sundance last month with two more ("Nasty Baby," "The Diary Of A Teenage Girl"). Oh sure, she's not adverse to big studio projects (hello, "Ghostbusters") but arguably, it's her work in smaller movies that's far more interesting. And so today comes another trailer for just one of those movies, "Welcome To Me." Directed by Shira Piven, and co-starring James Marsden, Linda Cardellini, Joan Cusack, Wes Bentley, Tim Robbins, Alan Tudyk, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and more, the story follows thirty-something, »

Rebel Wilson To Star In Absolutely Fabulous Movie

20 February 2015 3:57 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Vince Bucci/AP

During tomorrow night’s episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, Jennifer Saunders will give up some more details on her long-planned Absolutely Fabulous movie. As some press – or maybe, just press-release authors – were at the recording last night, we have The Evening Standard’s account to scrape for details ahead of the broadcast.

The big point, I think, is that Rebel Wilson has a role in the film. There’s a long tradition of putting American stars in British pictures to try and help their export chances – cf. Rhodes of Africa, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Cuban Fury – but I’d have thought Ab Fab would have been able to stand on its own two feet. Maybe not.

Saunders reiterated that some of the film would be set on the French Riviera, which again chimes with a long tradition. Sitcoms-turned-movies forever seem to be relocating the action overseas, »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 – The Review

19 February 2015 9:55 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Time once more to traverse that tricky minefield of comedy sequels (and you wonder why Kristen Wiig has vehemently said no to Bridesmaids 2!). Seems just yesterday that we were revisiting those three conspiring pals in Horrible Bosses 2 (which, despite some pans, was miles above the Hangover follow-ups and the return of Lloyd and Harry). And now, we’re set to revisit three other pals (it was four, but more on that later) which actually plays as a take-off on a more serious flick from just the last few weeks, Project Almanac. Yup, just like Marty McFly and Doc Brown, these dudes can’t refrain from tempting the fates and history. Fire up the jets, grab lotsa’ beverages, and make a splash by jumpin’ into Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

The boys have been busy since that first trek nearly five years ago. Adam, played by John Cusack, is a big »

The Funniest Scene In Bridesmaids Wasn't Even In The Script

19 February 2015 3:05 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bridesmaids was pretty much adored by everyone who saw it, which is probably due to the fact that it.s sweet, warm, and hilarious all at the same time. But there.s one disturbing but still laugh out loud funny scene that helped to set the comedy apart from its peers, which saw the lasses struggling with a sudden bout of food poisoning. And it.s now been revealed that this particular sequence actually wasn't originally planned in the script for the feature. Robert Yeoman recently spoke at length about his eclectic career in an interview with with The Huffington Post, celebrating his recent Oscar nomination for The Grand Budapest Hotel, and it was during this chat that he talked a bit about his experience filming Bridesmaids and exactly what with down with the aforementioned scene. According to the filmmaker, the pages for the food poisoning scene were only brought »

Dan Aykroyd still wants to make Ghostbusters 3; is “very happy” with Paul Feig’s reboot

19 February 2015 1:39 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We heard from original Ghostbusters co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd yesterday about his thoughts on Paul Feig’s reboot, praising it for empowering women. But while it looked like the long-gestating Ghostbusters 3 was over due to the announcement of the reboot, Dan Aykroyd has other plans.

“There’s three drafts of the old concept that exists,” Aykroyd told Interro Bang (via /Film). “And we’re going to be able to salvage some of it and use it. Yeah, we’re gonna be able to use it some day. Let’s get this one made and that will reinvigorate the franchise and then we’ll go on to maybe doing a more conventional third sequel as we were planning and another idea I have for it.”

Akyroyd spoke late last year about the possibility of treating the Ghostbusters series like Marvel does with its interconnecting universe. But what does he »

The new Ghostbusters know how to party!

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon snapped an awesome cast pic together after the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special, and it's got us more excited than ever for the upcoming comedy reboot.

Jones and McKinnon are current SNL cast members, while Wiig left the sketch show at the end of season 37. McCarthy, meanwhile, has hosted three times. They are all at the top of their comedy game, and could prove to be worthy successors to the beloved comedy stylings of their Ghostbuster predecessors.

Video: The All-Female Ghostbusters Reboot Gets a Cast!

The cast for the new Ghostbusters, to be directed by Paul Feig, was announced in late January. Feig has worked with Wiig and McCarthy in the past on the Oscar-nominated 2011 comedy Bridesmaids, and teamed up again with McCarthy in the 2013 cop comedy The Heat.
