The Hangover Part II grossed more than $500 million worldwide, an impressive feat for a movie that basically took the screenplay for Hangover Part I and added “…but this time in Bangkok” to the end of every sentence. A third Hangover film will arrive next May, and Legendary Pictures has released the first promotional image for the threequel on the franchise’s Facebook page. The image doesn’t reveal anything about the plot — although we already know that at some point the characters will return to Las Vegas. (That corresponds perfectly to the Joseph Campbell Monomyth Rule of Trilogies: See also, Luke Skywalker returning to Tatooine in Return of the Jedi and Bruce Wayne returning to deep holes in the ground in The Dark Knight Rises.) Check out the image in a larger size below. READ FULL STORY

The animated arcade adventure Wreck-It Ralph has already added characters from Q*bert, Paperboy, Pac-Man, Street Fighter, and Sonic the Hedgehog to its cast.
Now the feature film from Walt Disney Studios Animation has added stars from Modern Family, The Office, 24, and the Disney Channel to fill-out the list of supporting players.
Rose Byrne is about to learn the first lesson of corporate America:
Hands off the interns.
Sources tell EW that the Damages and Bridesmaids actress is in final talks to co-star with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in the upcoming comedy The Internship, about two unemployed, 40-something guys trying to start new careers at the absolute bottom of the ladder at a Silicon Valley tech firm.
Who says they don’t make Danish sex comedies like they used to? Very few people, obviously (at least outside of Denmark, where it may be a constant refrain for all I know). But if anyone did say such a thing we would point them in the direction of the R-rated Klown.
Directed by Mikkel Nørgaard, the film stars Casper Christensen as an adultery-obsessed married man whose dream of enjoying a canoe-based “Tour de p—y” looks in danger of being torpedoed when his vacation buddy, played by Fran Hvam, brings along the nephew of his pregnant girlfriend to prove he is good father material. To say what ensues is rather bawdy is like saying Transformers kind of involves giant, fighting robots.
Earlier this year, Warner Bros. acquired the remake rights and set Danny McBride to work writing the script. But for those who like their Danish comedies really, well, Danish, the original movie will hit cinemas with a lubricious squelch on July 27.

Everyone who has been to college in the last five years knows about a cappella groups — those quirky teams of vocally-gifted students who “ja da da” their way into their university’s zeitgeist with musical pun monikers like the Treblemakers and a repertoire of upbeat chorale arrangements of “Rolling in the Deep.” So as a recent graduate, what’s my favorite part about the trailer for Pitch Perfect, the upcoming Anna Kendrick comedy set in the cut-throat world of competitive collegiate a cappella?
It could be Rebel Wilson, looking to be in top form as self-deprecating singer Fat Amy. Or it’s the refreshingly harsh truths about college life promised by lines like, “Welcome to Barden University! Here’s your official BU rape whistle!” Above all, I have the utmost appreciation for the genre-bending madness, as the movie looks to take the rival cattiness of Bring It On and the vocal euphonies of Glee and throw them together into a glossy Step Up crock pot.

Could Adam Sandler’s new comedy That’s My Boy be skewing slightly more towards The Hangover then Jack and Jill? That’s what seems to be the case in the new red-band trailer for the June 15 release, which stars Sandler as an immature manchild who crashes the wedding of his seemingly put-together son, Todd (Andy Samberg).
The NSFW trailer reveals Todd’s tranquil bachelor party and rehearsal dinner gone horribly wrong (or right?) thanks to Donny’s juvenile interference. As the clip unfolds, the shocks become even more preposterous, although the level of swearing, toilet humor, and obese nakedness can’t possibly come as a surprise. See what Sandler says tastes like ” his f—— d— infused with b—-” below: READ FULL STORY
Shortly before the release of 2010′s Will Forte-starring action-comedy MacGruber, the Saturday Night Live star told this writer that he would definitely like to make a sequel. “That is a dream scenario,” said the comic. “Just to be working with the same group of people would be awesome. I would love the chance to do that again… in a tropical setting.”
This is happening, people. On the heels of the Anchorman II teaser that began playing before screenings of The Dictator last night, Paramount has released a teaser poster for its highly anticipated comedy sequel. Like that one-minute clip, the new image doesn’t reveal anything about the film’s plot — but seeing it might put fans in a glass case of emotion anyway. And if nothing else, it does seem to indicate that the new film’s official title is Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Click through to see Ron, Brick, Brian, and Champ once more… or, at least, part of them.
Mission: Impossible actor Simon Pegg and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright will reunite and start filming The World’s End in September, according to Deadline. Wright will direct, while Pegg is set to star alongside frequent co-star Nick Frost. The World’s End team has also released a logline for the project, which you can read below.
