Pretty much everything which could go wrong at a wedding does so in the new movie Breakup at a Wedding — and every hiccup is diligently captured through the videographers’ lenses in this found footage comedy. The film was directed by Victor Quinaz and stars his brother Philip and Alison Fyhrie as the unfortunate betrothed couple. The movie’s producers, meanwhile, include Zachary Quinto. Yes, that Zachary Quinto (although, to be honest, I’ve yet to hear of another one).

Sixty percent of the time, this trailer works every time.
It has many leather-bound books, and it smells of rich mahogany.
It ate the whole wheel of cheese. (Heck, you’re not even mad — that’s amazing!)
It would like to extend to you an invitation to the pants party.
In short: It’s kind of a big deal. And so, without further ado — little Ham ‘n Eggs comin’ at ya! Hold on, people, hope you got your griddles…
It is no slur on the good name of funnyman Jeff Garlin (well, not too much of one, anyway) to suggest he isn’t the first person one would think of to make a sports movie. So, how did he come to both co-write and direct the forthcoming comedy Dealin’ With Idiots about the apparently very competitive world of youth league baseball?
“The inspiration was my son playing baseball,” the Curb Your Enthusiasm star and director of 2006′s I Want Someone To Eat Cheese With recently told EW. “I was like, I have to write a movie about this. So I did.”

Does Ghostbusters contain secret messages about smoking, obesity, and/or the reproductive process of Sigourney Weaver’s character Dana Barrett? Those theories are raised by a new documentary called Spook Central, which seemingly does for the 1984 comedy classic what the recent, subtext-exploring Room 237 did for Stanley Kubrick’s horror movie The Shining.

Saul Goodman has a new gig! Bob Odenkirk, who plays Walter White’s morally dubious lawyer on AMC’s Breaking Bad, is set to write and star in a comedy called Girlfriend’s Day. Odenkirk will play a greeting card writer who gets entangled in a web of murder and deceit as he and his fellow scribes try to create the perfect card for the new, titular, holiday.
Here at EW we have quite a soft spot for Internet comedy troupe 5-Second Films — partly because their daily sketches are often very funny and partly because, when they’re not, a least the clips have the decency to only waste five seconds of our lives. But now the 5sf peeps have decided to aim for the big time, in every sense, by launching a Kickstarter campaign to finance their debut movie, Dude Bro Party Massacre III. According the pitch video, DBPM3 is “a bloody tale about a bunch of bros who go to an abandoned sorority house by a lake, but then ‘Motherface’ starts picking them off one by one according to their fears: Heights, commitment, running out of beer, even puppies.”
Over the past few years, Zachary Quinto has established his acting rep by playing Sylar in Heroes, a couple of memorable roles on American Horror Story, and, of course, Spock in the last two Star Trek movies. So you could describe his transition into producing as, well, “logical.” Certainly it has gotten off to an encouraging start. Quinto produced director J.C. Chandor’s financial crisis movie Margin Call through the actor’s Before the Door company — the production outfit he runs with partners Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson — and exec produced Chandor’s Robert Redford-starring All Is Lost, which just screened at Cannes.
This summer’s We’re the Millers, a family vacation movie and pot comedy all rolled into one, just got its first trailer.
The movie stars Jason Sudeikis as a small-time drug dealer who gets in over his head when he has to find a way to smuggle 1,500 kilos of marijuana across the Mexican border. To make it past the officials at the border without suspicion, he hires a phony family to travel in an RV with him and the marijuana. A stripper (Jennifer Aniston) stands in as his wife, while a homeless teen (Emma Roberts) and his dorky British neighbor (Will Poulter) become his faux daughter and son.
Check out the fake family vacation antics that ensue and a filthy rich Ed Helms in the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
