The American Film Institute has announced its annual list of the 10 best U.S. releases, which last year predicted nine of the eventual 10 Best Picture nominees. On the list this time are nine expected contenders: The Descendants, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Help, J. Edgar, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. But the AFI also included one very interesting dark horse: Bridesmaids. Missing from the top 10: Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Beginners, Drive, The Ides of March, and Young Adult. UPDATE: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was eligible but the AFI committee decided to give the entire Potter series a special award instead. READ FULL STORY

Thanks to two extras from the new Bridesmaids Blu-ray, you’ll never look at party subs or children’s toys the same way again. First, Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Air Marshall Jon (Ben Falcone) get frisky with a variety of Super Bowl-worthy snacks — and that’s only the beginning of their kinkfest… In the second clip, the ladies (and Jon Hamm!) show off their improv skills in a mash-up of off-the-wall outtakes led by an extended cut of the film’s cringe-worthy opening sex scene. See the VERY NSFW clips after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Even a two-hour-plus movie couldn’t contain all the comedy talent of these hilarious women. Now that Bridesmaids is out on DVD and Blu-ray, you finally get to see a ton of alternate takes and scenes you didn’t see in theaters.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The DVD has tons of extras and deleted scenes. What scenes are you most excited for fans to see for the first time?
KRISTEN WIIG: Well, I love the date scene with the little boy [who spouts off outrageous statements]. That’s in the new director’s cut. And the scene with Paul Rudd — I really missed those date scenes. READ FULL STORY

Hot off the success of Bridesmaids, Universal is set to renew its vows with the team of Judd Apatow and Paul Feig. EW has confirmed that, as first reported by Deadline, the studio has bought a comedy pitch from the duo, whose partnership goes back to co-creating the cult TV series Freaks and Geeks. Feig, who directed Bridesmaids, will write and direct the new comedy, and Apatow will again produce. No plot details yet, aside from the fact that the film will be an unconventional love story. Nevertheless, if you’re a fan of Team Apatow-Feig, you’re free to begin getting excited right now.
