Sam Rockwell And Anna Kendrick Make For A Killer Couple In First Trailer For Mr. Right

10 February 2016 12:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production setbacks on recession drama Get a Job coupled with the recently-released maiden trailer for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates has meant that movie fans have stumbled on a double helping of trailers featuring Anna Kendrick in the past week or so, and Focus Features has made it three for three by debuting our first look at the actress’ hitman comedy, Mr. Right.

Starring opposite Sam Rockwell for the light-hearted feature, the Pitch Perfect star plays Martha, a young woman out of luck and out of love who begins to question whether she’ll ever cross paths with Mr Right. Low and behold, Rockwell’s smooth-talking assassin walks into her life, but after bumping off a nameless hitman on their first date, his character of Francis is left dealing with a bounty on his head, effectively drawing in Kendrick’s hopeless romantic in the process.

Rebel Wilson Reveals Her First Headshot - and Shares How She Chose an Extra for a Makeout Scene

9 February 2016 2:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Rebel Wilson is bravely sharing her first headshot as an actress - and it is spectacularly awkward. The How to Be Single actress joked that she immediately regretted sending the photo to Seth Meyers for her first appearance on Late Night, saying, "It's so embarrassing." In the photo, Wilson is posed in front of a graffitied wall wearing an oversize maroon T-shirt, a thin gold chain and holding some random softball equipment. "So I'm like 18 or 19 here - holding a softball mitt," she laughed. "And just in case you didn't know what I was sporting, a softball. "Don't know what's happening with my feral hair, »

Poster for Mr. Right starring Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell

9 February 2016 12:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A poster has arrived online for director Paco Cabezas’ upcoming action rom-com Mr. Right featuring Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell; check it out here…

Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Anna Kendrick; Pitch Perfect) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight — and is looking to do something terrible when she meets Francis (Sam Rockwell; The Way Way Back). To anyone else, Francis’s approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued. They seem a perfect match: she’s bananas, he’s bananas… except he’s a deadly sort of bananas. He’s a professional assassin.

Francis is a hitman with a cause: he unexpectedly kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn’t joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, »

Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza Tear Up the 'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates' Trailer

8 February 2016 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When The Hangover made nearly half-a-billion dollars around the world, two things happened. We got more Hangover movies and we got more R-rated comedies. No surprise there. When it comes to Hollywood, success chases success. What's been particularly noteworthy about the post-Hangover raunch boom, however, is that they're not all just Hangover rip-offs where it's a bunch of dudes getting wasted and doing stupid things. Now we also have raunchy comedies where guys and gals get wasted and do stupid things! And the latest in this mold is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, which just released its first trailer. Zac Efron (Dirty Grandpa) and Adam Devine (Pitch Perfect) star as two brothers who tend to party just a little bit too hard. Because of this, their parents...

Netflix Is Turning Sophia Amoruso’s ‘#GirlBoss’ Autobiography Into a Comedy Series

8 February 2016 3:20 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Aspiring #GirlBosses, rejoice.

Streaming giant Netflix has ordered to series a comedy based on the rags-to-riches story of Sophia Amoruso, who spun her eBay shop into the multimillion dollar fashion retailer now known as Nasty Gal.

In 2014, Amoruso wrote a book about her journey entitled #GirlBoss, on which the series will be based, according to Variety. Kay Cannon, who wrote Pitch Perfect, will serve as showrunner and executive producer of the forthcoming series alongside the actress Charlize Theron.

This is Netflix’s second collaboration with Theron to date; it picked up Mindhunter, a serial killer-themed drama, last December.

While Nasty Gal is renowned for its bold fashions and Amoruso revered for her entrepreneurial prowess, the company has recently fallen on hard times. Nasty Gal cut 10 percent of its staff earlier this month in a move that CEO Sheree Watson called a "strategic restructuring."

Zac Efron and Adam DeVine date Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick in first trailer for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

8 February 2016 11:35 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Zac Efron and Adam Devine are brothers who can’t stay out of trouble.

After their parents make them find respectable dates for their sister’s wedding, Mike and Dave still can’t catch a break. Known to cause havoc at all major family events, getting a date for this wedding seems like an idea that could tame the two men—except that the girls they find are even wilder than they are.

Aubrey Plaza and Efron are currently sharing the screen in Dirty Grandpa, and this July they’ll be paired together again, in an equally chaotic, wedding-themed bender. Anna Kendrick and Adam Devine who both previously co-starred in the Pitch Perfect films will also be seeing an on-screen reunion with Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and we can bet that this wedding will be far from pitch perfect.

In this new trailer, we get to see Mike and Dave meet their matches, »

Universal’s Untitled Musical Comedy Finds Its Leads In Channing Tatum And Joseph Gordon-Levitt

5 February 2016 11:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following a heated bidding war, Universal has snatched up rights for a new, as-yet-untitled musical comedy, with The Hollywood Reporter learning that the studio has already cast two prominent stars in Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Hail, Caesar! star Channing Tatum.

Reports indicate that the concept for the new project first came to light under Gordon-Levitt, who will produce via his hitRECord Films banner. Other talent involved at this early stage include producers Marc Platt and Adam Siegel, along with Channing Tatum himself, Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan on behalf of Free Association. Details are scarce as to which direction Universal is steering the untitled project, and whether it’s being eyed as a potential franchise in the vein of the studio’s lucrative Pitch Perfect.

Aside from showcasing their musical (read: miming) talents on Spike’s popular Lip Sync Battle, Gordon-Levitt and Tatum first starred opposite one another in Iraq war drama Stop-Loss in 2008. Since then, »

That Book #Girlboss You Liked Is Going to Become a Netflix Show You Also Probably Like

Befuddled boyfriends around the nation are getting one more question to ask today, as Variety reports that fashion magnate Sophia Amoruso's memoir #Girlboss will be turned into a Netflix comedy series, produced by the dream team of Amoruso, Charlize Theron, and Pitch Perfect's Kay Cannon, who will serve as showrunner. In book form, #Girlboss was often described as a Millennial version of Lean In, which is just going to confuse that adorable lunk you share a bed with even further. Just tell him the woman whose blog you like is teaming up with two women whose movies you like to make a show out of the book you like, no, not that one, that's the book you don't like. »

‘The Power Rangers’ Movie Has Cast It’s Rita Repulsa!

2 February 2016 10:59 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Earlier today, it was announced that the remake of The Power Rangers – where a band of ordinary teenagers become superheroes to defeat villainy across the land – has cast one of their most prominent villains, Rita Repulsa! Rita is an alien witch of humanoid form hellbent on galactic domination and was the arch-nemesis of the rangers in the original television series. Today, it has been announced that she will be played in the March, 2017 film by none other than Elizabeth Banks, most recognisably of The Hunger Games and Pitch Perfect fame.

The news was announced via the official Power Ranger Movie instagram account. Though it came as somewhat of a surprise to see such a big name attached to the project, when its prior announced casting choices are still so relatively unknown.
