Tony winner Dan Fogler plays an ordinary man who goes a little crazy in the film Don Peyote. Fogler, who co-wrote and directed the film with Michael Canzoniero, stars alongside Anne Hathaway, Josh Duhamel, and Topher Grace, among others. If the trailer below is any indication, the movie is going to be one freaky trip.
Forgler plays Warren Allman, a typical oblivious everyman who is sent on an existential path of enlightenment. Warren is transformed into the shaman/prophet Don Peyote and sheds light on alternative lifestyles that work but have been buried by the decision makers to the detriment of our civilization. The movie takes a hard look at the current plight of humanity and begs of us all to take a second look at our own contribution. It makes us question which is better: maintaining the status quo or maintaining harmony with humankind, nature, the earth, and the stars?
Check out the trailer below before Don Peyote comes out in May:

Casting Net: Denzel Washington to play futuristic contract killer-turned-protector; Plus Tom Hardy, Melissa Leo, Chevy Chase, more

Ultimately, the killer becomes the girl’s protector.” The novel hits shelves on Jan. 14, 2014. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY
Death Valley is a really terrible place to have your car break down. In the latest trailer for Scenic Route, Mitchell (Josh Duhamel) and Carter (Dan Fogler) have no idea just how bad it’s going to get.
What starts out like a melodramatic, introspective buddy adventure quickly devolves into chaos and despair when Mitchell realizes that his estranged best friend Carter intentionally meddled with their pickup so that they could have a real conversation about life. In the desert extremes, Mitchell transitions from a clean-cut family man in a polo shirt into a Travis Bickle doppelgänger. Without giving too much away about the surprisingly plot-heavy trailer, it’s a pretty striking tonal departure for Duhamel who has tended towards both weepy and comedic romance movies for the bulk of his career.
Written by Kyle Killen (The Beaver), and co-directed by brothers Kevin and Michael Goetz (Mass Transit), Scenic Route premiered at the 2013 South by Southwest Film Festival and was recently acquired at Cannes by Vertical Entertainment. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think about the anti rom-com Duhamel. READ FULL STORY
What’s curvaceous and a bit naughty, with a greenish palor? This exclusive poster, below, for the upcoming mega celebrity-filled ensemble comedy Movie 43!
Touted as “The biggest cast every assembled, for the most outrageous comedy ever made,” the poster boasts a bada-boom outline of a greenish woman’s body with the movie’s title as the, er, crotch clincher. Helmed by several directors, including Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber), the film stars a serious litany of A-list names, including — take a long breath — Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Banks, Kate Bosworth, Gerard Butler, Kieran Culkin, Josh Duhamel, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Knoxville, Chloe Moretz, Justin Long, Leslie Bibb, Liev Schreiber, Seann William Scott, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, and Uma Thurman.
“Never before have such huge actors pushed the envelope so much,” Farrelly told EW last month, giving us the lowdown on scenes ranging from Winslet on a crazy blind date with Jackman to a potty-mouthed Watts and her real-life love Schreiber playing parents home-schooling their son by totally demeaning him. The movie’s set for release in theaters Jan. 25, 2013.

Peter Farrelly has never turned up his nose at total silliness, directing such raunchy comedies such as There’s Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber with his brother Bobby. But collaborating as one of a dozen directors on the upcoming ensemble comedy Movie 43 had its own unique perks, not the least of which was getting to see a slew of A-list stars such as Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet let loose.
The movie, set to release Jan. 25, 2013, has a cast and story as celebrity-steeped and plot-twisty as a Robert Altman film crossed with the shameless spunkiness of Jackass. In addition to Watts and Winslet, it includes appearances by: Elizabeth Banks, Halle Berry, Kate Bosworth, Gerard Butler, Kieran Culkin, Josh Duhamel, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Knoxville, Chloe Moretz, Justin Long, Leslie Bibb, Liev Schreiber, Seann William Scott, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, and Uma Thurman. Whoosh, that’s a mouthful. With all those actors, more than 15 writers, and several directors, including Farrelly and actress Banks herself, the movie took several years to make.
“It’s the brainchild of Charlie Wessler, who produced most of our movies. Never before have such huge actors pushed the envelope so much,” said Farrelly by phone. “Charlie knows all these people. He went to them, huge stars, like Kate Winslet, and she said, ‘I’m shooting this movie, I’m not free for a year and a half.’ This movie was made over four years, and they just had to wait for a year or two years for different actors. They would shoot for a week, and shut down for several months. Same thing with the directors. It was the type of movie you could come back to.”
