The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005)
“Blockers” follows in the tradition of Judd Apatow’s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” and “Trainwreck,” as an R-rated comedy that takes no prisoners. But in Hollywood, for the most part, these films are typically made by men. Cannon, a first-time director who produced “Pitch Perfect” and wrote for “30 Rock,” is shattering a glass ceiling by proving female directors can join that club. She spoke to Variety about the film, how it plays in the Time’s
A Quiet Place
What we are excited about: The first trailer sold this film for us right away. The first half of the trailer really conveys the quiet aspect of the film to terrifying effect, while the second half promises that the film will deliver the horror goods. It’s a unique concept and one that is sorely needed given the modern-day horror landscape. It’s also interesting that the film was written, directed, and stars John Krasinski,
Rogen explained that he was once friends with Daniels after she made brief appearances in “Knocked Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” two movies directed by Judd Apatow that helped launch his career. The actor said Daniels did not hide her sexual encounter with Trump when asked if she had slept with anyone notable.
“I’ve known Stormy Daniels a long time and I’ll be honest — she may have mentioned some of this stuff around 10 years ago,” Rogen told Ellen. “At the time, when you ask a porn
“Blockers” is like “American Pie” meets “Bridesmaids.” It follows a group of three teenagers (played by the winning Geraldine Viswanathan, Kathryn Newton and Gideon Adlon), who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. This isn’t a unique premise. But it’s never been told from high school girls’ point of view with a female director behind the camera. And the story doesn’t focus
A trailer for his course focuses on Apatow's process and philosophies. "People should look at comedies as dramas, when they're writing," he says in the clip. "They should be stories that work just as well without any jokes." At another point he says to "ask yourself a lot of questions,
The original American Idol winner spoke about the buzzed-about encounter at the Television Critics Association press tour, sharing that she didn’t know that she was still on live TV.
“I was humiliated when I watched it back,” she said. “I was very excited, and I hope I don’t lose that excitement, just being a true fan of people. But she’s Meryl Streep ya’ll! Everybody would’ve looked like
Apatow has been a DGA member for two decades, with directing and writing credits on “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Knocked Up,” and “Trainwreck.” He has also produced “Superbad,” “Bridesmaids,” “Pineapple Express,” and both “Anchorman” films. Apatow’s stand-up special “The Return” premiered Dec. 12 on Netflix.
The DGA also appointed producer and director Don Mischer as awards chair for the event.
Mischer has served two terms on the DGA National Board, in addition to winning 15 Emmy Awards and 10 DGA Awards.
“We are thrilled to welcome Judd as our host. Beyond his impact as a multi-hyphenate force in our industry, Judd’s comedic chops, social consciousness, and lifelong love of film and television underlie his unique ability to entertain with heart — whether behind the scenes or in front of a live audience,” Thomas Schlamme, DGA president,

The second thing he does is joke about how famous he is.
“There’s a little bit of a freak show element to me doing it,” Apatow says of his act and the need to lead it off by addressing his Judd Apatow-ness. “If I ignored that it was weird that I was up there, the audience wouldn’t [listen to my act]. They would just want to know about me and my life.”
Apatow, who is nearing his 50th birthday, sits in a conference room at his production company’s L.A. office. Behind him are photos of the casts of “Freaks and Geeks” and “Girls,” two of his best-loved TV shows. To his left is a whiteboard bearing story notes for season three of one of the current

“I think we’ve revealed how horrible people can be,” Apatow, who has consistently criticized Trump, said at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in Beverly Hills. “And I think through social media, we’ve energized the worst of a lot of people’s instincts. So I think it’s more of a Pandora’s Box that’s going to get worse and worse.”
The comments were delivered during a panel titled “The 1990s: America’s Groundhog Decade” with Apatow and Dee Dee Myers, executive vice president at Warner Bros. and the White House press secretary during President Bill Clinton’s administration.

“The Hitman’s Bodyguard,” an R-rated action-comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, expands to 3,377 locations on Friday. Its preview showings started at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
