Production has begun in Boston on the action comedy Central Intelligence, for New Line Cinema and Universal Pictures. The film, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, will be directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, director of the hit comedies “We’re the Millers” and “Dodgeball.”
The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.

Sometimes the plainest truths are nestled in the most outlandish absurdities, and so it proves in “Preggoland.” An amusing, extravagantly implausible farce that nonetheless makes a pointed argument about the perceived marginalization of childless women in modern society, Canadian helmer Jacob Tierney’s film shoots for the Judd Apatow-associated distaff appeal of “Bridesmaids,” albeit with a bleaker undertow and dimmer production values. Animated chiefly by the spiky gifts of actress and screenwriter Sonja Bennett — headlining proceedings as Ruth, a thirtysomething supermarket cashier who fakes a pregnancy with inevitably woeful consequences — “Preggoland” recently received a limited release in the U.S., though it’s on alternative platforms that this Toronto fest premiere will most likely come fully to term.
With the “womanchild” character type — the female equivalent of the immature, insolvent, mildly hedonistic man exemplified by Seth Rogen in “Knocked Up” or Mark Wahlberg in “Ted” — a growing presence in mainstream comedy, »

Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham on the Oscars' Red Carpet Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham at the Academy Awards Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham in a red-and-golden outfit are pictured above on the 2011 Academy Awards' Red Carpet, just outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories. Wahlberg, however, was a Best Supporting Actor nominee four years ago: for »

Say what you like about Seth MacFarlane, Ted was funny, and made a huge amount of money all over the world. Like Us$550 million. That's Fast & Furious big. For a comedy, about Marky Mark and a CGI bear with a potty mouth. And there's your winning formula.The Family Guy creator proved himself fallible when A Million Ways To Die In The West pretty much tanked right after Ted's impressive win (despite an actually pretty great performance from Charlize Theron), but it failed enough to drive MacFarlane back to the well perhaps earlier than he would have otherwise.What I'm getting at is Ted 2 is on the way. It's got Morgan Freeman, Amanda Seyfried and New England Patriots quaterback Tom Brady in it, to name...

Seth MacFarlane's filthy, talking teddy bear is back this Summer with Ted 2, and Universal have dropped a new red band trailer, which shows MacFarlane's signature pop culture infused humour is still strong the second time round (the Law and Order bit that kicks this off is pretty darn funny), and the rapport between Mark Wahlber and CGI co-star is better than ever. We all no MacFarlane has his fair share of detractors, but Ted was one of the better R rated comedies in the last few years, and hopefully the sequel will be more of the same. Released: June 26th (U.S.)/ July 10th (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Newlywed couple Ted and Tami-Lynn want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he's a person in a court of law. »

Universal has unveiled the latest trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s comedy sequel, Ted 2, and it retains all of the tenets of the director’s outrageous, on-the-nose style of humor: dick jokes, race and more sexual innuendos than you can shake your furry first at.
Centering around the titular, pint-sized loudmouth, the follow-up will orbit around Ted’s quest to land some reputable civil rights, although such a feat will require the crude protagonist to make a valuable contribution to society itself. How will he achieve this, you ask? Well, despite his fuzzy anatomy, Ted reveals his burning desire to have a baby with his bride-to-be Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth reprising her role as the dim-witted love interest), though to do this he will need to collect a sperm sample.

Check out the spots from Morgan Freeman, Amanda Seyfried and Patriot Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady in this very Nsfw red band trailer for "Ted 2."

If you thought the first Ted 2 teaser was too tame, allow this redder-than-red red-band "restricted trailer" to make you choke on your bong. So to speak.Naturally inclined to indulge in more toy bear-comes-to-life madness after the 2012 film was a massive success at the box office, the sequel sees co-writer director/voice of Ted Seth MacFarlane and human sidekick Mark Wahlberg back for a lot more body fluid humour in the story of Ted’s attempt to prove he’s a person in the eyes of the law.Our furry hero, see, has married his girlfriend Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) and now the pair wants to have a baby. There are just two tiny impediments to this plan: Ted has no - how to put this tastefully - "swimmers" and so will need the help of Wahlberg’s John as a donor. And to become a parent, he needs to »
