Critical Mass: Is this a 'Sex Tape' you'd pay to see?

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are back together again. After starring in Bad Teacher, the 2011 comedy hit that topped $100 million, they reunite to play a married couple who’ve lost their spark. Kids, work, and age have taken their toll on what was once a spontaneous and prolific sex life, and Annie and Jay try to get it back by making their own homemade sex tape. But when their video gets uploaded to the Cloud by accident and sent to their friends, neighbors, and even their mailman, they have to race around town to prevent the naughty movie from becoming a scandal.

Directed by Bad Teacher‘s Jake Kasdan and co-starring Rob Lowe, Rob Corddry, and Ellie Kemper, “Sex Tape becomes a caper not unlike Horrible Bosses or We’re the Millers or [insert another Jason Sudeikis movie of your choice here],” writes Leah Greenblatt, in her review. “It’s clumsy and wacky and intermittently amusing.”

'Sex Tape': Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel share their love in NSFW trailer -- VIDEO


As everyone knows, personal sex tapes are only meant for you, your loved one, and people with an active PayPal account. They aren’t for your boss or your neighbor, or heaven forbid, your mother. But that’s what happens to Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz in Sex Tape, the raunchy new comedy from director Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher).

'This is the End' red-band trailer: Rihanna slaps a coked-out Michael Cera -- NSFW VIDEO

It’s the end of the world. What do you do?

Well, if you’ve been kind to others, you get lifted up to heaven. But if you’ve been partying at James Franco’s house and, in Michael Cera’s case, smacking Rihanna’s butt and blowing cocaine in McLovin’s face, you probably won’t be greeted at the pearly gates anytime soon. Plan B? Camp out at Franco’s house with the likes of Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel, obviously. Because if you don’t, you could end up like Aziz Ansari, Mindy Kaling, or even Jason Segel … dead. Hey, it’s the end of the world. Celebrities die too.

In the new red-band trailer for This is the End, the apocalyptic comedy featuring celebrities playing “themselves,” a Hollywood party goes downhill fast after a gaping hole in Franco’s front yard claims the lives of numerous celebs. What follows is, quite simply, the end of the world, featuring four-legged demons, a very angry Hermione, and exactly one Milky Way.

Check out the red-band trailer for This Is The End below: READ FULL STORY

'Five-Year Engagement' redband trailer: 'Today's more of a bunny day' -- VIDEO

The new, uncensored trailer for The Five-Year Engagement showcases the necessary conversations all couples must have before walking down the aisle. How many children do you want? How much have you saved? Only, in the case of Tom and Violet (Jason Segel and Emily Blunt), the agony of these conversation stretches out over many years. On the upside, there’s also an inordinate amount of sex talk to ease the pain. Check out the (NSFW) trailer below. , READ FULL STORY

Tribeca Film Festival: 'Five Year Engagement' child actress reveals her favorite co-star -- VIDEO

Are you ready for your daily dose of cuteness? While there were a lot of big stars (Jason Segel! Emily Blunt!) at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of The Five-Year Engagement last night, it was a little girl in a pink frock nervously taking her first walk down a red carpet who totally stole the spotlight.

Meet 4-year-old Zoe Niemkiewicz. She plays Vanessa, a bow-and-arrow wielding tot who takes direct aim (watch her in action at the end of this trailer) at Violet (played by Blunt).

During our chat Niemkiewicz discussed her role in the film and her costars. Though she was initially quite diplomatic about who she enjoyed working with the most, after a little prodding she revealed her favorite costar was Segel. Why? He played LEGOS with her, obviously. Watch the adorableness unfold in the video below. READ FULL STORY

'The Muppets' on DVD: Kermit, Walter, and Miss Piggy play hardball -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

From time to time, Entertainment Weekly is lucky enough to host some of the most famous stars in the industry. But perhaps no special guests have ever created a bigger stir in our New York office than the Muppets, who swung by last week to promote the video release of their latest hit movie. At least that’s what we thought they were visiting to do. Walter actually came fishing for swag, in particular, an advance screener copy of the upcoming superhero spectacular, The Avengers. Miss Piggy had even more ambitious plans, and when she sets her mind to something, woe to the green frog or naive EW editors who stand in her way. Thankfully, cooler heads prevailed. Take a look.

Though a sequel for The Muppets
has been greenlit, one star who was integral to bringing the franchise into the new millennium won't be a part of it, reports Collider. Jason Segel told the site he won't be signing up for another round with Kermit and Co. "It’s true [that I won't be in the seque]

,” said Segel, “but it’s totally amicable. My goal was to bring the Muppets back and I did that, leaving them in very good hands.”

Segel said he wants “to pursue more human-related projects,” adding, “All I wanted to do was to set the stage for them to do whatever they wanted. I’m sure I’ll return in some capacity here and there, but that was half a decade of my life. Five years of hard work. I’m ready for a little puppet break.”
