Video: Bill Murray babysits for Melissa McCarthy in 'St. Vincent' trailer

St-Vincent-trailer.jpg

Bill Murray has hit bottom in the first trailer for St. Vincent. A hedonistic war vet, Murray’s Vincent is a cranky drunk who cavorts around with strippers and gets enraged at the slightest things. His bank account is overdrawn, he’s got an unexplained head wound, and a massive tree branch just fell on his car.

But Oliver (newcomer Jaeden Lieberher), the young boy who’s just moved in next door with his newly divorced mom (Melissa McCarthy), hardly notices all the vices and edges and starts to take to Vincent, and his mom agrees to let him look after Oliver for $11/hour. Predictably, Vincent’s idea of babysitting is unconventional at best.

'Fargo'-inspired 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter' gets U.S. distribution

Amplify has acquired the U.S. rights to Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, a stunning folk tale of a lonely, isolated Japanese woman (Rinko Kikuchi) who unearths a warped VHS tape of Fargo and takes it for truth, putting her on an epic, continent-spanning quest to find the money that Steve Buscemi’s Carl Showalter buries in the Minnesota snow in the Coen brothers’ 1996 masterpiece.

A release date has yet to be announced for the film, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and is loosely inspired by an urban legend. “We’re incredibly proud of Kumiko, it has been a labor of love for Nathan [Zellner], our producing partner Chris [Ohlson], and myself for many years,” said director David Zellner. “It’s a cinematic quest made for the big screen and we can’t wait to share it with a wider audience.”

Producer Cameron Lamb added: “Kumiko is a captivating journey from start to finish—with a performance by Rinko that is daring and inspirational while devastatingly mesmerizing, set alongside a stunningly visual landscape.”

'Boyhood' exclusive: Richard Linklater explains his cinematic experiment -- VIDEO

BOYHOOD.jpg

Richard Linklater knew he wanted to make a film about childhood. It’s not a revolutionary idea, by any means, but Linklater decided to make it so. Instead of forcing the passage of time with makeup and lighting and different actors, he resolved to film the same cast over the course of a number of years, allowing everyone to actually change and age and grow.

The result is Boyhood, a 12-year glimpse into the lives of a Texas family, starring Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, and Ellar Coltrane. As Owen Gleiberman wrote after Boyhood‘s Sundance premiere: “It touches something deep and true, which is that we grow up to be the people we are by letting every moment form us.”

Watch as Linklater, Hawke, and Arquette discuss the film in a moving featurette after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: The Transformers defy extinction with a $41.6 million Friday

The Transformers might be fighting for their existence in Michael Bay’s fourth installment in the toy-to-movie series, but the film itself is not just surviving — it’s on track to become the highest opener of the year. Sorry, Cap.

Featuring a brand new cast, including Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, Nicola Peltz, Kelsey Grammer, and Stanley Tucci, Transformers: Age of Extinction brought in an estimated $41.6 million from 4,233 locations, Friday. That includes Thursday night’s $8.75 million take from approximately 2,990 locations as well, which started showing Paramount’s nearly 3 hour spectacle at 9 p.m. After some Friday morning hand-wringing, it looks like the blockbuster is still on track for a $100 million + opening — which would be a career high for Wahlberg (whose highest opening to date is the 2001 Planet of the Apes). It also picked up $80 million from international showings, bringing its worldwide total to a staggering $121.6 million. READ FULL STORY

'Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' trailer shows the many sides of James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain's rocky romance -- VIDEO

Love is complicated. There are different sides to every story, unexplainable whims, emotions, and a million tiny little decisions that can shove the trajectory of the relationship down nearly any path. We don’t need the movies to tell us that, but it never hurts to be reminded of the ineffable truth.

But there’s an inherent problem with tales of love and breakups: Who gets to be hero? Choosing a point of view is generally choosing the protagonist when it comes to documenting relationships on film, and how is that fair? Maybe Summer was a decent girl after all.

In The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, starring James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain as a couple in and out of love, writer-director Ned Benson tries to subvert that. Originally conceived as two films, subtitled Her and Him, which both premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and tells the same story from both sides of a relationship, Benson then combined his features into one film, Them, for the Cannes premiere.

Check out the first trailer for Them after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Jason Bateman to star in and direct an untitled 'FBI wedding comedy'

For his directorial debut Bad Words, Jason Bateman took on the raunchy underbelly of spelling bee tournaments–or, at least posited a situation where a rule-bending, middle-aged grump forced participants to the lowest common denominator. Now, the Arrested Development star has set his sights on a new project: an untitled “FBI wedding comedy” for Universal Pictures. READ FULL STORY
