'Homefront' trailer: Jason Statham goes head-to-head with James Franco, the meth dealer -- VIDEO

With Walter White out of the business, is James Franco taking the reins? Not exactly. However, in his new film Homefront, Franco plays a meth dealer who doesn’t particularly like the new guy in town: Jason Statham.

In the film’s trailer, we see what happens when Statham, who plays an undercover cop, moves his young daughter to the South on assignment. Here’s a clue: An altercation between Statham’s little girl and a school bully puts Statham on the radar of just about every meth-head in town. Those meth-heads are led by Franco and his wife, played by Kate Bosworth. A lot of broken bones follow (as well as at least one kidnapping). Winona Ryder also stars.

Watch the trailer for Homefront below:

'Black Rock': This ain't your mom's Ya-Ya Sisterhood -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

Black Rock starts out looking like a typical chick flick, with three lifelong girlfriends played by Lake Bell, Kate Bosworth, and Katie Aselton reuniting for a roughing-it retreat in the sticks of a semi-remote Maine island. Girls weekend! Wahoo! But they’re soon forced to practice a more serious brand of bonding when they’re discovered by a group of pseudo-threatening male hunters at their campsite. “It gets all Deliverance-y,” said John Cooper, the director of the Sundance Film Festival, where the psychological thriller debuted in 2012.

Aselton, who’s best known for being one of the boys on TV’s The League (and being married to actor/filmmaker Mark Duplass, who penned the script), directed the movie. “Things go terribly wrong,” Aselton told EW at Sundance. “And it’s the worst-case scenario.”

Click below for the exclusive poster, which features a mountain silhouette that only emphasizes Paramount’s missed marketing opportunity in not acquiring the film. (LD Distribution snapped it up at Sundance for a reported $1 million.) READ FULL STORY

New 'Movie 43' poster as saucy as the celeb-filled movie -- EXCLUSIVE

Movie-43_510x756.jpg

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.

'Movie 43' co-director Peter Farrelly praises comedic Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts -- EXCLUSIVE

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.”
