Tyler Perry’s new movie prominently features Kim Kardashian in the role of someone who, presumably, does not have the last name “Kardashian.” She plays a dismissive marriage counselor who uses blank stares to communicate emotions like “confusion.” Alas, this is not a movie about an alien space-robot visiting from the future when emotions have been replaced by curves. This is Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, which stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell as a marriage counselor whose marriage could use some counseling of its own — what the Greeks referred to as “irony.” The counselor falls for another guy, there’s some jogging, and terrible things happen. So, it’s basically Why Did I Get Married?, Part 3: Why Did I Get Mar3d? Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY »

Celebrate the non-ending of the world with the red-band trailer for Seth Rogen's 'This is the End' -- VIDEO
This is how the world apparently really ends: not with the fulfillment of some ancient Mayan prophecy but with Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, and assorted other members of their comedy posse mercilessly busting on each other and Craig Robinson drinking his own pee. At least that’s the vision of the apocalypse presented in the red-band trailer for This is the End, which features Rogen (who co-directed the movie with his Superbad writing partner Evan Goldberg) and a bunch of his friends playing themselves as the world falls to pieces around them. (RIP Michael Cera.)
Rogen — who introduces the trailer with his Pineapple Express co-star Franco — originally cooked up the idea for a post-apocalyptic comedy with Jay Baruchel back in 2007, and the two even made a fake trailer for the movie (then called Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse). After years of development and a couple of title changes, This is the End will finally theaters in June 2013. Assuming, of course, we make it that far. Watch the NSFW trailer: READ FULL STORY »
Oh look, Hollywood put two people you like in the same movie! Admission stars Tina Fey as a Princeton admissions officer whose life is changed when an old classmate (Paul Rudd) contacts her — and tells her that one of his high school students (Nat Wolff) may be the son she gave up for adoption when she was in college. Way to give away the whole plot, trailer.
On paper, the story sounds sort of heavy — but the movie itself looks like pretty light fare, complete with a cow birthing and a trigger-happy Lily Tomlin as Portia’s mother. Liz Lemon’s settling soulmate Michael Sheen and Wallace “Inconceivable!” Shawn also play supporting roles. READ FULL STORY »
The Heat is a movie about very important issues in American culture, like the neverending battle between the feds and the cops, or the neverending battle between straight-laced law enforcers and their lone-wolf loose-cannon lethal-weapon partners. In this latest rendition of a tale as old as time, Sandra Bullock plays the Fed in Spanx, Melissa McCarthy plays the cop who plays by her own rules, and the new red-band trailer for the film features the two of them doing lots of hilariously NSFW things. You ever wanted to hear how Bullock says “motherf—-r?” She says it in this trailer. And it sounds awesome. Keep an eye out for Thomas F. Wilson, a.k.a. Biff Tannen, as a police captain.

The new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby puts a sharp focus on Leonardo DiCaprio’s titular gold-hatted party-monger. “I am the son of some very wealthy people,” he explains. “Sadly, they’re all dead now.” Then he brandishes a medal of valor and drives real fast through Roaring ’20s New York. It’s roughly at this point that the trailer turns into an extended visual orgy of fireworks and dancing and green lights across the water. There’s something very sensuous about it — overripe, as if all sorts of funny fruits are going to fall into your hands. Occasionally a line of gray cars crawls along an invisible track, gives out a ghastly creak, and comes to rest, and immediately the ash-gray men swarm up with leaden spades and stir up an impenetrable cloud, which screens their obscure operations from your sight. So, you know, typical blockbuster fare. Watch the trailer: READ FULL STORY »
'Bridesmaids' Matt Lucas (and his giant alphorn) star in 'Small Apartments' trailer -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Remember Kristen Wiig’s oddball roommates in Bridesmaids? Well, actors Matt Lucas (Little Britain) and Rebel Wilson are back together in Small Apartments, a comedy about one sad Swiss-obsessed man’s misadventures after his landlord drops dead in his kitchen. Lucas plays the sad man, one unfortunately named Franklin Franklin who plays the alphorn in his undies. Wilson pops up as another character that only she could play.
The film, which premiered at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, also stars Billy Crystal, Juno Temple, James Marsden, James Caan, and Johnny Knoxville. It arrives on DVD and video-on-demand on Feb. 19. Watch the bizarre trailer below. READ FULL STORY »
Michael Bay's 'Pain & Gain' trailer shows off Hulk-like Mark Wahlberg, The Rock, strippers, guns -- VIDEO
To say the first trailer for Michael Bay’s bodybuilders-gone-bad action comedy, Pain & Gain, starring Hulk-sized Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is over-the-top is an understatement. It EMBODIES over-the-top.
Muscles galore, strippers, guns, Rebel Wilson making saucy reference to certain male anatomy. Check out the trailer, below, which debuted Wednesday on Bay’s website. Wahlberg shouts out “I’m hot! I’m big!!!” while working out, before jumping muscle-bound head first into a world of extortion, kidnapping and crime with Johnson.

The ever-mysterious Terrence Malick returns in April with To the Wonder, and based on the first trailer, the film doubles down on everything you either loved or despised about Tree of Life. There are lovingly swooping shots of nature juxtaposed with highly formalized shots of contemporary cityscapes; there are young lovers running through various fields; there is poetical narration which sounds variously like a love poem and a eulogy.
In this case, the narration comes from Javier Bardem, who plays a priest. The film also stars Ben Affleck as a human male, and Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko as two human females who apparently fall in love with Affleck. It pointedly does not star Rachel Weisz. But it does star nature. And isn’t nature in all of us? And aren’t we all therefore united in the divine? And therefore are we not all Rachel Weisz? Anyhow, this looks awesome.

Next year is shaping up to be the Year of Melissa McCarthy. Two years after her scene-stealing role in Bridesmaids, the Mike & Molly star is lined up for two buddy comedies: The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Identity Thief with Jason Bateman. In the newest trailer for the latter, we get to see much more of the duo in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles mode, as Bateman’s mild-mannered Colorado dad drags the outrageous woman who’s stolen his identity and maxed out his credit cards across the country in order to clear his sullied name.
There’s lots of footage overlap from the first trailer, but Eric Stonestreet makes his first appearance as an amorous cowboy interested in McCarthy’s “Sandy” — not Bateman’s “Sandy.” Bet now: Does Stonestreet’s good ol’ boy wear boxers or briefs? READ FULL STORY »
Get ready to hustle to the nearest art-house cinema, because No is headed to the states.
Directed by Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín (Prófugos, Post Mortem), the movie details the landmark 1988 marketing campaign that helped unseat Chile’s notorious military dictator, Augusto Pinochet. Indie flick staple Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries, Y Tu Mamá También) stars as René Saavedra, an ad man who develops the campaign’s signature aesthetic and its slogan, “Chile, la alegría ya viene” (“Chile, joy is coming”). It is based on the play El Plebiscito by Antonio Skármeta and was shot using period-appropriate videotape, allowing for seamless blending of new material and footage from the original 1988 event.
No won Art Cinema Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and is Chile’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars. Watch the trailer after the jump. READ FULL STORY »
