'Ghostbusters' to get the 'Room 237' treatment in new documentary 'Spook Central'? -- VIDEO

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.

'5-Second Films' launches Kickstarter campaign for full-length movie 'Dude Bro Party Massacre III'

5-second-films.jpg

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.”

Zachary Quinto talks about producing the new comedy 'Breakup at a Wedding' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

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.

'We're the Millers' trailer: Stripper Jennifer Aniston and fake family vacation antics -- VIDEO

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

Jeff Bridges talks about this summer's supernatural action-comedy 'R.I.P.D.' (and why 'the Dude' would enjoy it)

RIPD

Jeff Bridges is best known for appearing in dramas such as 2009’s Crazy Heart, which garnered the actor an Oscar, and the Coen brothers’ 1998 noir-stoner comedy classic The Big Lebowski, which garnered him an army of “Duderino”-quoting fans. But Bridges’ filmography also features a surprisingly large amount of sci-fi and fantasy movies, including 1976’s King Kong remake, 1984’s Starman,  the two Tron movies,  the first Iron Man film, and now this summer’s Robert Schwentke-directed R.I.P.D., in which he and Ryan Reynolds play dead, but still extremely active, law enforcers.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost prepare to get obliterated in 'The World's End' trailer -- VIDEO

Worlds-End.jpg

Director Edgar Wright recently told this writer that his new movie The World’s End is “definitely in the realm of social science fiction.” What does that involve in practice? Well, judging by the film’s international teaser trailer, it involves Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, a pub crawl, Primal Scream’s blissed-out dance-rock classic “Loaded,” a bunch of sinister folks with glowing eyes and mouths, and a gag involving a fence which will be warmly appreciated by fans of the two previous entries in Wright, Pegg, and Frost’s so-called “Cornetto trilogy” (2004’s Shaun of the Dead and 2007’s Hot Fuzz).

What else could you want on a Wednesday morning?

The World’s End, which also stars Rosamund Pike, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, David Bradley, and various other notables, arrives in cinemas Aug. 23. Check out the trailer below and tell us if you are happy that The World’s End is finally nigh. READ FULL STORY

Zach Braff wants you to help him fund his next movie: 'It's like joining a club'

Zach Braff just became the second most high-profile film project on Kickstarter — and he wasn’t quite expecting all the attention. “I feel like one of those people who you hear the stories about, actors get woken up early because they won some award,” Braff told us this morning on the heels of the announcement of his next directorial project, Wish I Was Here, for which he’s hoping to raise $2 million through Kickstarter.

Fans of either Braff or Kickstarter will be quick to assume two things about the project: That Wish I Was Here is Garden State-y (or Scrubs: The Movie) and that Braff has only jumped onto the platform after seeing the massive, $5.7 million success it gave to Rob Thomas’ Veronica Mars. Both assumptions are both right and wrong.

'The Way, Way Back' trailer: Sam Rockwell and Steve Carell star in Sundance summer comedy -- VIDEO

We’ve seen Steve Carell do funny. We’ve seen him play crazy. We’ve seen him do awkward. But in Sundance favorite The Way, Way Back, Carell plays mean, and he’s the one picking on the awkward guy: his girlfriend’s teenage son, Duncan (Liam James).

The Way, Way Back follows Duncan through his summer break that’s rather nightmarish whenever he’s with his mom (Toni Collette) and her boyfriend, but has bright moments whenever he’s at the local water park, where he strikes up a friendship with one of the slacker employees (Sam Rockwell).

The trailer shows off a good chunk of Way, Way Back‘s impressive cast, including Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, and co-director/co-writer Jim Rash.

Check out the trailer, which kicks off with one of Carell’s toolish moments inspired by a traumatic moment in Rash’s real life, below: READ FULL STORY
