Jason Bateman woos Olivia Wilde in 'The Longest Week' trailer

The-Longest-Week-Trailer.jpg

Love is complicated, especially when you haven’t really grown up yet. In The Longest Week, Jason Bateman plays 40-year-old Conrad Valmont, who lives at home and is heir to a vast fortune. When he’s cut off from said fortune, he moves in with his best friend Dylan (Billy Crudup) and promptly decides to romance Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice (Olivia Wilde) on the sly.

The trailer seems to hint that the film may be fully aware of just how “first world problems” its premise is. Meanwhile, Jason Bateman plays yet another affably self-interested jerk—one might say that his career is suffering from a case of… arrested development. Zing.

Jason Bateman to star in and direct an untitled 'FBI wedding comedy'

For his directorial debut Bad Words, Jason Bateman took on the raunchy underbelly of spelling bee tournaments–or, at least posited a situation where a rule-bending, middle-aged grump forced participants to the lowest common denominator. Now, the Arrested Development star has set his sights on a new project: an untitled “FBI wedding comedy” for Universal Pictures. READ FULL STORY

'This Is Where I Leave You': Six movie revelations from BookCon

You can go home again — sometimes with less drama than going to your actual home.

Five years ago, author Jonathan Tropper debuted This Is Where I Leave You at Book Expo America, and on Friday afternoon he returned to his old stomping grounds to present footage from the upcoming film version of the novel, about a combative family brought together by their father’s funeral.

The event kicked off BookCon, the new public section of the convention, and along for the ride were director Shawn Levy (Real Steel, the Night at the Museum movies) and stars Tina Fey and Jason Bateman. “I’m going to keep bringing movie stars on book tours, because I never get this crowd,” Tropper told the packed auditorium.

Here are six things fans should know about the movie, which comes out Sept. 12:

'This Is Where I Leave You' trailer: Tina Fey and Jason Bateman learn you can go home again

The award for best cast of 2014 may already be locked up. Just look at the trailer for This Is Where I Leave You, starring (deep breath) Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Corey Stoll, Adam Driver, Jane Fonda, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Ben Schwartz, Timothy Olyphant, and Dax Shepard.

Based on 2009’s best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper (who wrote the screenplay), the dramedy follows four adult children (Fey, Bateman, Stoll and Driver) who return to their mother’s (Jane Fonda) house for a week when their father dies. “We need a new term for the tone. It’s not a dark comedy — because it’s not that dark. But it’s an ­emotional ­comedy,” Fey told EW.

'This Is Where I Leave You': FIRST LOOK at Tina Fey, Jason Bateman's emotional family funeral comedy

Remember that line from The Godfather: “Never tell anybody outside the family what you’re thinking”? In This Is Where I Leave You, it’s probably best not to tell the family, either. The bittersweet comedy about troubled siblings who reunite for their father’s funeral is like a group hug crossed with a battle royal.

“We need a new term for the tone. It’s not a dark comedy—because it’s not that dark. But it’s an ­emotional ­comedy,” says Tina Fey, who plays the pushy sister to three equally neurotic and combative brothers: Corey Stoll, Jason Bateman, and Adam Driver. Jane Fonda costars as their prying psychologist mother, who will either unite her estranged family or destroy it trying. READ FULL STORY

Can you spell potty mouth?
