Video: Young-at-heart retirees party in Iceland in 'Land Ho!' clip

Land-Ho-Clip.jpg

Just because you’ve hit retirement age doesn’t mean you can’t still have adventures. In the utterly charming Land Ho!, two ex-brothers-in-law decide to take a spur-of-the-moment trip to Iceland—and, of course, in the vein of all the classic buddy comedies, they’re polar opposites.

Colin (Paul Eenhoorn) is a soft-spoken man still reeling from a recent loss while Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson) is a bawdy, larger-than-life character who’s always ready for a good time, whether it’s bathing in a glacial spa or partying in a Reykjavik nightclub. “We wanted to make a comedy that was sort of an ode to comedies that we loved growing up, like Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and Uncle Buck,” co-director Martha Stephens told EW after the film’s premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

Though both characters are nearing retirement, don’t make the mistake of thinking that the movie is just about age. “What’s happened to us also happens to every age group. You have a person who dies. You get fired from your job, you get divorced, you have financial problems. Hell, I’m 71 years old and I’m not ashamed of that,” Nelson (Stephens’ cousin) added. Land Ho!, he said, is “much more than two old farts having to be put out to pasture.”

Video: Screenwriter Mike White explains his creative process

Mike White, the screenwriter behind School of Rock and Nacho Libre, has a very specific creative process. For starters, he’s up at 6 a.m. to start writing, and unlike a lot of writers, by 5 p.m., he’s said goodbye to his laptop for the day.

In an episode of the YouTube series Academy Originals from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, White explains why it is that he doesn’t write at night, and how he prepares for his morning bursts of creativity. (Hint: It involves sleep and yoga.) READ FULL STORY

Video: Lily Collins and Sam Claflin are friends in love in 'Love, Rosie' trailer

There’s a fine line between friendship and romance, and in the new trailer for Love, Rosie, Alex (Sam Claflin) and Rosie (Lily Collins) are all but dancing on it.

Based on Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 novel Where Rainbows End, the film follows Alex and Rosie, two best friends who meet at the age of 5 and, over the course of their lives, journey from being inseparable to being separated by an entire ocean. As they age, they continue to debate if their friendship could—and/or should—be more, even through babies, marriage, infidelity, the struggles of long distance, and more.

Video: Nick Dunne looks very, very guilty in new 'Gone Girl' trailer

“How was your marriage, Nick?” That’s code for “Did you kill your wife, Nick?”—the question at the center of David Fincher’s film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl.

In a new trailer, the mystery of Amy Dunne’s (Rosamund Pike) disappearance seems to have a simple answer: Her husband did it. At least, that’s what it looks like when Nick (Ben Affleck) is labeled the most hated man in America, while voiceovers from his wife’s diary claim, “This man of mine may kill me.” Add in a first glimpse at Neil Patrick Harris as Desi Collings, Amy’s creepy ex-boyfriend, and the stage is set for an equally eerie and shocking film.

New 'Gone Girl' posters unveil some important police evidence

As fans of the book know (and moviegoers will find out), Gone Girl is all about solving a mystery. Specifically, it’s about solving the mystery of Amy Dunne’s (Rosamund Pike) disappearance.

After Amy disappears on her fifth anniversary with husband Nick (Ben Affleck), Nick becomes suspect No. 1 in the police investigation. And in new posters for the David Fincher film, we get a brief glimpse at why all signs point to Nick with a peek at some of the police evidence. So far, they’ve got a wedding photo, a scalpel, a pair of underwear, and a page from Amy’s diary.

Check out all four new posters below, which promise a new trailer will premiere today:

Box office update: 'Transformers 4' crushes 'Tammy,' 'Earth to Echo'

Tammy is no match for the Transformers. The Melissa McCarthy comedy had a slight shot at snagging the top spot over the holiday, but the Autobots managed to stave off extinction for one more week — at least till the Apes take over next weekend.

Michael Bay’s fourth installment in the toy-based franchise pulled in an estimated $10.6 million Friday, while the R-rated Tammy (C+ Cinema Score) took in $6.44 million from 3,400 theaters. In other words, there were no box office fireworks this weekend.

Box office preview: 'Tammy' takes on the Transformers

Melissa McCarthy’s over-the-top comedy Tammy (C+ Cinema Score) bursts into theaters this long Fourth of July weekend to challenge Michael Bay’s over-the-top Transformers: Age of Extinction for the No. 1 spot. Will Americans choose an original comedy or the latest summer blockbuster to escape the heat and barbeques? It could be close.

Also opening wide is the E.T.-like Earth to Echo (A- Cinema Score) and the horror pic Deliver Us From Evil (B- Cinema Score). It’s the rare summer weekend without any sequels or franchises, and it won’t hold a candle to the same weekend last year which saw Despicable Me 2 take in $143 million across the Wednesday to Sunday time frame.

Here’s how things might play out.
