Meet the Griswolds in new red band trailer for Vacation

23 July 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the Clark Griswold TV spot, new images and seven clips and a featurette, we’ve not got a brand new red band trailer for the upcoming comedy reboot Vacation ahead of its U.S. release next week. Check it out here…

Watch Judd Apatow Skewer Bill Cosby With Perfect Impression

21 July 2015 6:24 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Trainwreck director Judd Apatow visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday night to do something he hadn't done in roughly 23 years: Perform stand-up. For the first time since he was 24, Apatow went onstage to do four minutes of comedy, and while a portion of his routine was dedicated to the home life that inspired This Is 40, he also used his stand-up return to eviscerate Bill Cosby.

"Bill Cosby is still out on the road. Isn't that weird? He's, like, doing stand-up. What do you think his act is like, »

While We’re Young Blu-ray Review

21 July 2015 5:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Noah Baumbach

Starring: Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 94 minutes

Special Features: The Cast / Working with director Noah Baumbach / Generation Tech / Working with Charles Grodin / Hip-Hop Class / Theatrical Trailer

Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young bridges the gap between the 20-something movies where people try and find ‘themselves’ and wraps it into the world of Judd Apatow’s This Is 40 but, saying that, still holds all the unique quirks and intelligence of Baumbach’s previous work. With a smart cast of Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried and Charles Grodin, here you find an honest and entertaining exploration of what it feels like to grow older without dragging its desires in cliché.

Josh (Stiller) and Cornelia (Watts) are our happy middle-aged couple, whatever that age is, who have noticed everyone around them is settling down, having kids and they »

‘Trainwreck’ Box Office Success Pushes Amy Schumer on Hollywood’s A-List

19 July 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With only one major movie role on her resume, Amy Schumer sprinted to the top of casting wishlists this weekend on the strength of “Trainwreck’s” impressive debut.

“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 »

Q&A: Judd Apatow on ‘Trainwreck,’ Finding Amy Schumer and the Dangers of a Selfie

17 July 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At the world premiere of “Trainwreck” at the SXSW Film Festival last March, the loudest laughs from inside the theater came from the film’s director, Judd Apatow. Slumped down in a seat behind his new star, Amy Schumer, Apatow was so invested in the story about a thirtysomething magazine journalist who emerges from a series of one-night stands to begrudgingly find true love that he actually shushed a nearby, mortified fan who tried to open a candy wrapper.

Later, Apatow and Schumer would deliver a standup comedy set in Austin that provided the launching pad for a national tour they’d announce. And “Trainwreck,” which opens today, will keep the laughs coming. Apatow, one of the most prolific producers in Hollywood (“Girls,” “Anchorman 2,” “Begin Again,” “Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday,” etc.), has been selective about his own directorial projects. “Trainwreck” is his first film since 2012’s “This is 40, »

Paul Rudd’s Top 10 Movie Quotes: From ‘Clueless’ and ‘Anchorman’ to ‘Ant-Man’

17 July 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Paul Rudd has been entertaining audiences for 20 years, starting with his breakout turn as Alicia Silverstone’s ex-stepbrother in the classic high school comedy “Clueless.” Since then, he has served as one of Judd Apatow’s many muses, standing in for the director alongside his real family in “Knocked Up” and “This Is 40.” Friday brings the release of Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” which may be Rudd’s biggest movie yet, as well as his smallest character. Rudd got into superhero shape for the role but fortunately his silver tongue remains in tact, with his knack for comedy serving him well over the years, »

Can You Tell Which Paul Rudd Is Older? (We Doubt It)

17 July 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This quiz originally ran in March 2013. With Rudd still looking 32ish in Ant-Man this weekend, we have updated it. We accepted that Paul Rudd was 40 in This Is 40, because it was right there in the title. But if it had been called This Is 26, we would have accepted that just as easily. Because while in human years Rudd may be 45, he never seems to actually age: He looks 32ish and he always has, even when he was 26 and starring in Clueless. Clothes and facial hair might change, but Rudd consistently appears to be untouched by the usual physical transformation that comes from spending increasing time as an alive person. In fact, we challenge you to distinguish between his ages. In the following quiz, you'll see seventeen pairings of pictures of Rudd at different ages — some are four years apart, some are eleven, some are somewhere in »

Movie Review: Trainwreck

17 July 2015 2:01 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Judd Apatow is the maestro of the dick joke, the current reigning king of gross-out humor, and the guy who brought you all those hey-bro-let’s-get-drunk-and-get-laid movies. But Apatow’s secret weapon, and the likely reason for his broad appeal, is that he’s admittedly a family-values guy at heart. From The 40-Year-Old Virgin to This Is 40, the binge drinking and drug use and sexcapades in Apatow films always wind up leading to monogamy, long-term commitment, and reinforcement of American social norms.

So it makes for an interesting collision of creative talents – and personal values – when the similarly raunchy but more deeply subversive comic Amy Schumer teams up with Apatow in Trainwreck. Schumer writes and stars in the film, which focuses on a thirty-something journalist and dedicated wild child also named Amy. Amy drinks hard, parties harder, and hops constantly from one new sexual encounter to another, following the »

Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow Might Just Have the Cutest Family Ever

16 July 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann are one of Hollywood's funniest couples, but they're also one of the cutest. The pair, who tied the knot in 1997 after meeting on the set of The Cable Guy, are the parents of two gorgeous daughters, Maude and Iris. The world has been treated to numerous red carpet appearances by the family of four since the girls were little (they were in Knocked Up and This Is 40, after all), but we decided to dig a little deeper to find more of the Apatow family's sweetest moments together. Luckily, Judd, Leslie, Maude, and Iris are all on Instagram and frequently post photos during vacations, cozy nights at home, and glamorous Hollywood events. Keep reading to see why this Hollywood family is as normal as they come, then check out celebrity families living it up at Disneyland. »

'Trainwreck' (2015) Movie Review

16 July 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Before there was "Inside Amy Schumer" on Comedy Central and before Amy Schumer was covering every magazine, hosting the MTV Movie Awards and becoming a household name, I was listening to her comedy in my Spotify rotation. I can't remember the first time I heard her comedy, but listening to bits here and there, her edgy, no holds barred style had my howling. However, when I tried to listen to one of her comedy albums in its entirety I realized there can be too much Amy Schumer at once. This was my chief concern walking into Trainwreck, which Schumer wrote before teaming with director Judd Apatow to polish up the script and deliver the final product we now see on screen. Fortunately, there's just the right amount of Amy Schumer, but there is too much movie for the small story Trainwreck sets out to tell. Like virtually all of Apatow's films, »

Ruddy or Not: How Paul Rudd's Roles Stack Up

16 July 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With his starring role in the Marvel superhero blockbuster Ant-Man, Paul Rudd seems set to embark on a new phase in his career: action hero. But there's a scene late in the movie when, caught kissing another character, his ex-con-turned-insect-controlling-good-guy Scott Lang starts to faux-blame the deed on his partner before gracefully skirting away. It's a classic Rudd moment, and a reminder of what he brings to the table even when he's playing a comic-book character.

What is that exactly, you ask? In general, his characters tend to be earnest and romantic, »

Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann's Daughters Are Ridiculously Beautiful at the Trainwreck Premiere

15 July 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The two little girls from This Is 40 are all grown up! Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann made the New York City premiere of Trainwreck a family affair on July 14 when they brought along their two beautiful daughters, Maude and Iris. The family of four walked the red carpet together at Alice Tully Hall, and the girls quickly stole the show. Maude, whose impressive acting skills were most recently seen in the last season of Girls, looked more grown up than ever in a cute floral dress. Iris, who attended the MTV Movie Awards with her famous dad back in April, looked like the spitting image of her hilarious mom. The movie's stars, Amy Schumer and Bill Hader, also made appearances, with Amy showing some serious skin in a sexy black dress. Other celebrities in attendance included Zosia Mamet, Brie Larson, LeBron James, and Marisa Tomei. Keep reading to see »

Forecast: 'Ant-Man''s Huge/Tiny $60M Opening

14 July 2015 9:22 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

2nd Forecast Update: Ant-Man pulled in $22.6M on Friday, with its Thursday take of $6.4M representing 28% of its gross. That figure is better than the Friday take of 2008's The Incredible Hulk, which brought in $21.5M. There's an asterix on that number, however, as the big green guy had a per-screen average of $6,125 on 3,505 screens. The latest Marvel entry from director Peyton Reed was on 3,856 screens for $5,872 per screen. Trainwreck is coming into the station faster than expected. Its three-day estimate stands at $28.9M, from a $10.7M Friday start on 3,178 screens and a $3,336 per screen average. This Friday tally too has a qualification. Director Judd Apatow's latest has a Friday total better than his biggest hit, Knocked Up, which made $9.8M, but Knocked was on 307 fewer screens (2,871) and had a better per-screen average of $3,415. Forecast Update: Ant-Man opened to $6.4M from Thursday shows, a respectable start but one that »

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Trainwreck Director Judd Apatow and Star Bill Hader

13 July 2015 9:36 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There is something about a Judd Apatow film. It can be crude, but with a big old heart inside. With films like Knocked Up, This Is 40 and The 40-year-old Virgin, he has managed to make you laugh and still feel a little something more than you would from your average comedic director. With Trainwreck - written by star Amy Schumer - he has a made a suprisingly poignant drama that happens to be... Read More »

Trainwreck Review

13 July 2015 4:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The tagline for Trainwreck claims “We all know one,” but Amy Schumer’s boisterous leading debut succeeds not because we see our “trainwreck” friends in her performance. Whether you’ll admit it or not, we instead see ourselves in the shoes of Amy, because we’ve All experienced that period where no f#*ks are to be given. You’re damn right to assume “we all know one” – we all own mirrors. But it’s Ok to be a trainwreck, and that’s the journey that this floozy-on-steriods is here to teach us.

I don’t know about you, but being a strapping young lad living in New York City has taught me a thing or two about the current dating landscape, and a lot of Schumer’s on-screen defense mechanisms/paranoias are commonplace in today’s day and age. Relationships are scary in the city, where a smorgasbord of »

Win Passes To The Advance Screening of Trainwreck In St. Louis

7 July 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

No contemporary filmmaker has chronicled the messy human experience with the eye and ear of a comedic cultural anthropologist like Judd Apatow. Hits as varied as those he’s directed, like Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and those he’s produced, like Superbad and Bridesmaids, are all unified by their honest, unflinching, comic look at how complicated it is to grow up in the modern world.

Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in Trainwreck, written by and starring Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.

Since she was a little girl, »

“Ted 2″: Ranking the top comedy sequels of all time

25 June 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

One of the hardest things to get right in Hollywood seems to be a sequel to a hit comedy. For one reason or another, most comedy sequels tend to fall flat. As such, it’s all the more notable when one succeeds, as it’s rather rare. This week though, we have a success story in Ted 2, which manages to be nearly as good as the first one. That’s not the highest praise possible, but for a category like this, it qualifies you. Below you’ll see my ranking of the best comedy sequels of all time. I figured it would be fun, so I hope you enjoy! Here now is how I would rank the ten best comedy sequels to date: 10. Ted 2 – The newest addition to this list is hardly an amazing film, but it’s a very funny one and happens to be barely a »
