From the director of Wet Hot American Summer, Wanderlust and Role Models comes a hilarious and irreverent subversion of the romantic-comedy genre: They Came Together, arriving on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD September 2 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

The 40-Year Old Virgin and This Is 40 director Judd Apatow is currently filming his highly secretive new comedy, Trainwreck in New York City. We don’t know much about the film outside of its star-studded cast, but have been speculating that former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will have a cameo. New photos from the film’s Bryant Park set have hit the web, all but confirming Radcliffe’s involvement.
As you can see, Radcliffe is walking a dozen dogs and hanging out with Apatow and Marisa Tomei. Apatow, of course, refused to admit anything on Twitter, and instead insisted that Radcliffe was just walking his dogs:
“@danradcliffecom:Dan to cameo in Trainwreck? Read: http://t.co/gGW5o43HIB pic.twitter.com/D2XcNoHeEU” Not true! He was just walking his dogs

Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd are two comedians who can really do no wrong. Poehler did a bang-up job hosting the Golden Globes two years in a row (alongside celebrity gal pal Tina Fey), and she’s also the star of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, one of the funniest shows on TV. And for his part, Rudd has toplined some hilarious films (Role Models and I Love You, Man come to mind), been an integral supporting player in others (Anchorman, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and has even done great work in dramas (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Prince Avalanche). The actor also has a little film called Ant-Man in the works. So, it’s safe to say that Poehler and Rudd are two of the funniest and most enjoyable performers around right now. This summer, they’ll share the screen in David Wain’s They Came Together – and we »

Crowe plays the titular character, who’s tasked by God to build an ark before a massive flood is set to cleanse the world.
Known for such stylized and gritty films as Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan, director Darren Aronofsky helmed Noah with an all-star cast. As well as Crowe, the movie includes Jennifer Connelly (Creation), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman), Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock), Emma Watson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2), Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Nick Nolte (Warrior) and Kevin Durand (Real Steel).
The PG-13 film grossed a tidy $100.6 million, but it scored much higher with critics than moviegoers. Noah received 77% approval from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, »

Exclusive: Fox 2000 has optioned Ava Dellaira’s debut novel Love Letters to the Dead. Producing are Temple Hill‘s Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, who produced the upcoming The Fault in Our Stars. The author will write the script, under the supervision of Fox 2000 execs Elizabeth Gabler and Erin Siminoff will oversee for Fox 2000. The book was published in April by Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers, to much acclaim.

Emotionally frayed by the loss, she unexpectedly finds catharsis in an assignment from her English teacher: write a letter to a dead person. Instead of handing in the assignment, though, she begins an ongoing series of letters to an eclectic group of rock stars, poets, and popular icons such as Kurt Cobain, Judy Garland, Amelia Earhart, and Amy Winehouse.

Emma Watson graduated Sunday, and not from Hogwart's. The 24-year-old British actress who came to fame as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, was at Brown University in Providence, R.I., on Sunday to receive her degree in English literature from the Ivy League school. It took Watson five years to achieve her diploma, not bad considering she took time out in 2011 to promote “The Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” the last Harry Potter movie.

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life Of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch.
In their 2013 Toronto International Film Festival review, Sound on Sight said, “Life Of Crime is a reasonable addition to the world of Leonard adaptations.”
Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Tim Robbins, Life Of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

On Thursday night, Adele Exarchopoulos (“Blue is the Warmest Color”) and Logan Lerman (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) accepted the Trophee Chopard at a Variety co-sponsored event at the Cannes Film Festival.
Cate Blanchett acted as the evening’s guest of honor. “I have an inappropriate crush on both of them,” Blanchett teased in her opening remarks about the two honorees.
“I am happy you have a crush on me,” Exarchopoulos said when she took the stage to accept her prize. “I have a crush on you, too.”
A jury with Harvey Weinstein and director Atom Egoyan, among others, selected the two actors for the award. The evening started with short speeches from Cannes president Gilles Jacob, Chopard’s co-president Caroline Scheufele and Variety managing editor Steven Gaydos. »

We can all be heroes of our own lives, according to Janelle Monae’s new video for “Heroes.” As you recall, she remade the David Bowie classic for a Pepsi ad campaign in conjunction with this summer’s World Cup (so it should come as no surprise that that video includes a soccer ball). In the video, directed by the Young Astronauts, a number of junior high misfits are getting bullied by the usual suspects. They band together and discover a cache of comic books, with Monae as the superhero (she doesn’t appear in the clip otherwise). Taking a cue from the comics, they become super heroes and triumph over their bullies. It’s sweet and well done, but doesn’t come close to packing the punch that the usage of the original has in the tunnel scene in “The Perks of Being A Wallflower.” However, any time a »

Many films have attempted to capture the complexities of teen life, but only a select few have actually succeeded in tapping into the tricky, ever-shifting cultural zeitgeist. Richard Linklater’s Dazed And Confused, John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club and, more recently, Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks Of Being A Wallflower all come to mind as teen-targeted movies which accurately translated some of the humor, heartbreak and restlessness of their respective eras to the big screen (though Perks is recent, it’s an adaptation of Chbosky’s influential ’90s novel).
Palo Alto deserves to rank among those classics of teen cinema. Like them, it holds a magnifying glass up to modern teenagers, finds something of value to say about their lives and communicating the message with impressive elegance. However, as directed by Gia Coppola (yes, niece of Sophia, granddaughter of Francis Ford), Palo Alto takes a detached, almost documentarian approach to »
