Woody Allen’s upcoming To Rome With Love may have gone through several names (the intriguing Nero Fiddled, the unfortunate The Bop Decameron), and it’s not entirely surprising considering what we see in the quip-heavy, plot-light trailer. Still, if you’re looking for a dyed-in-the-wool Woody Allen movie, look no further. It has everything from the loving travelogue aesthetic to the requisite slew of saucy women as objects of fascination-slash-titillation (notably Ellen Page and Oscar-winning Vicky Cristina Barcelona holdover Penélope Cruz), not to mention Allen himself and his Dorian Gray doppelganger Jesse Eisenberg. Roberto Benigni even shows up for the party. Ciao, principe! Check out the promo spot below. READ FULL STORY

'Ted': Mark Wahlberg on the hilarious white-trash name scene in Seth MacFarlane's first film -- RED BAND TRAILER
Somewhere between The Hangover and The Tooth Fairy — or, more aptly, between Family Guy and Walt Disney – lies Ted, the feature film directing debut from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. About John, a grown man (Mark Wahlberg), and Ted, the adorable teddy bear his childhood wish brought to life (voiced by MacFarlane), the film aims to tell the story of what happens after the happily-ever-after ending of most family-friendly fairy tales. According to the red-band trailer that hit the web on Sunday, that apparently includes pot smoking, some profane dating advice, and John and Ted cowering from a thunderstorm in bed with John’s girlfriend (Mila Kunis) while singing their comfort song with the rousing chorus, “F— you, thunder!”
In other words, Ted is that lifelong best buddy who keeps you from fully entering adulthood. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t a crapload of fun — like when he goads John into unspooling a litany of white trash girls’ names. You need to see it to believe it; watch the NSFW trailer below: READ FULL STORY
The new Three Stooges trailer is no laughing matter. According to the (faux) PSA, three in six billion people suffer from being a Stooge. Luckily, there’s a pill for that: Stoogesta. No word yet on whether this terrible affliction (symptoms include cross-dressing, impaired vision, and general freak-outs) is contagious. Just in case, you can educate yourself after the jump.

A Visit From the 'Goon' Squad: How a hockey player who 'couldn't skate worth s--' became the subject of a sports biopic
When 23-year-old Doug Smith first tried out for a professional ice hockey team, the East Coast Hockey League’s Carolina Thunderbirds, in October 1988, he knew his chances were slim. For one thing, Smith had never put on a pair of skates until he was 19. For another, well, there’s really no need for another reason. If you want to play hockey, it’s a good idea to learn to skate around the same time you learn to walk. When Wayne Gretzky was 19, for example, the so-called “Great One” won the first of eight consecutive Most Valuable Player awards in the National Hockey League. Though Smith had practiced hard in the four years since he first laced up his skates, he was no Wayne Gretzky. Far from it. This fact was bluntly confirmed by the Thunderbirds coaches. “They said, ‘The goddamn goalies are beating you, in full equipment, in drills’,” recalls Smith, who was cut after a few days of training camp. “ ‘You can’t skate worth s—’,” he was told.

In comedy, timing is everything. And right now, in light of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, it’s hard to imagine worse timing for a comedy called Neighborhood Watch, even if the movie is about four volunteer crime fighters (Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade) battling space aliens. Yesterday, Fox pulled posters and the teaser trailer for the film from Florida, where, on Feb. 26, a real-life neighborhood watch captain shot and killed an unarmed African-American teenager, sparking nationwide protests.
“We are very sensitive to what’s going on,” Neighborhood Watch producer Shawn Levy tells EW. “But other than the name of the organization, there is zero overlap between the movie and what’s going on in Florida. It’s very much a comedy that pits regular guys against a non-Earthly foe.” Levy says there have so far been no discussions about whether to postpone the film’s July 27 release, but it sounds like at least one of the stars would prefer the show go on as scheduled. “You’re talking to the guy who had the first comedy out after 9/11,” says Stiller. “We just put Zoolander out there. There were questions about whether it was too early for a comedy, but we couldn’t find a reason why there shouldn’t be a comedy in the world.”

Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming comedy The Dictator has kept the details of its plot relatively obscure until now, as the just-released second trailer duly shines light on what appears to be yet another fish out of water story by the writer and star of Bruno and Borat.
The Dictator stars the notorious prankster as General Aladeen, a maligned foreign despot who is kidnapped, shaved and abandoned in New York City during a visit to the United States. Beardless and unrecognizable, he wanders the streets until he is rescued and given a job at a green supermarket by a pixie-haired, eco-friendly Anna Faris. Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
Ever since the trailer for Dark Shadows hit the web a few days ago, it’s safe to say that the buzz has been mixed. Some fans of the original 1960s vampire TV soap opera are gnashing their fangs at the idea that director Tim Burton and star Johnny Depp (who’s playing the suave undead playboy Barnabas Collins) seem to have turned their cherished cult series into the stuff of campy comedy. Others think the movie looks like a twisted gothic hoot in the vein of other Burton films like Beetlejuice. We’ll have to wait until May 11 to see the complete results of Burton’s handiwork, but in the meantime, freshly emerged from the shadows, below are several new posters for the film. Each highlights a particular character, with ghoulishly pale portraits set against colorful backgrounds and the tagline “Strange is Relative.” READ FULL STORY
Say what you like about the folks behind forthcoming horror sequel Piranha 3DD but at least they’re not trying to disguise their objectification of the female form as some arty fashion shoot or armless statue (that’s right, Venus de Milo, we’re talking about you). Warning: Not surprisingly, the trailer is definitely NSFW.
Then Johnny Depp and Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows turns on the laugh track.
This movie, based on the 1966-1971 supernatural soap opera, turns out to take its source material not so seriously. When the buried undead bloodsucker Barnabas Collins is freed from his tomb in the year 1972, he finds the time period … a little funky.
