Tribeca Film Festival: Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield bond in dark comedy 'About Alex'

Aubrey Plaza was terror-stricken when she arrived at the abandoned Catskills ski lodge that served as the set of her indie film About Alex — so much so that she became closer to her castmates than originally expected.

“I forced Jane [co-star Jane Levy] to move in with me because I was terrified I would get murdered by some mountain person,” confesses Plaza, one of the lead characters in the film about a group of old college friends who reunite over a long weekend to bond after one of their pals attempts suicide. “I felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, and it was totally creepy.” READ FULL STORY

'Coffee Town' trailer: CollegeHumor's first movie features familiar faces, familiar plot

One of the web’s biggest viral video dens is diversifying. CollegeHumor has teamed up with digital distributor FilmBuff for an original feature-length comedy called Coffee Town.

The film, written and directed by Arrested Development producer Brad Copeland, stars Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as Will, a website manager who uses a local coffee shop as his home base. When Will learns that the shop’s owners are planning to turn it into a “bistro-lounge,” he and his pals — including Ben Schwartz, better known as Parks and Recreation‘s Jean-Ralphio — embark on a plan to save their beloved hangout. Naturally, a fake robbery and some literal toilet humor follow. Almost-Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki and Josh Groban — who’s been moonlighting as a comedian for years now — also star as Will’s dream girl and his jerky romantic rival, respectively.

Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, and Amy Poehler are doing terrible, hilarious things in this 'Somebody Up There Likes Me' promo

If you’re a fan of NBC sitcoms, then you’ll definitely want to watch the promo for Nick Offerman’s movie Somebody Up There Likes Me, which features Community‘s Alison Brie, Parks & Recreation‘s Adam Scott and Amy Poehler, and Offerman’s Parks & Rec ex-wife/real-world still-wife Megan Mullally. And they’re all doing terrible, weird, wild things. What things you ask? Let’s just say it involves a folksy ode to marijuana, lady parts, and maybe John Cassavetes. Why not?

Sundance 2013: 'A.C.O.D.' stars Amy Poehler and Adam Scott are over the moon

For fans of Parks and Recreation, Amy Poehler and Adam Scott are television’s most adorable couple. But in A.C.O.D., the Sundance movie about an Adult Child of Divorce (Scott) who’s never really recovered from the trauma of his parents’ split, their relationship could not be chillier. Poehler plays Scott’s pushy step-mother — and the landlord of his restaurant — and she’s not afraid to throw her influence around. (Imagine if Leslie Knope had grown up in Eagleton and you get the idea.)

The film, which premiered last night, reunites Scott with his Step Brothers father, Richard Jenkins, and his Party Down pal, Jane Lynch, and also features Catherine O’Hara, The Office‘s Clark Duke, and 30 Rock‘s Ken Howard, among others.

In person, Poehler and Scott are much more like their Parks and Recreation characters, funny and friendly, offering a glass of red wine to a reporter (that may have been left behind by another journalist.) Before a Princess Bride style Battle of Wits could be staged over the dubious drink in question, the two actors were kind enough to discuss their new movie and Parks and Rec.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Adam, you’re an executive producer on A.C.O.D. I’ve met a lot of producers, but for the life of me, I never really know exactly what they do because when I ask them, I get 100 different answers. So what did the executive producer do on this movie?

ADAM SCOTT: He got Amy Poehler to do the movie. READ FULL STORY

'Safety Not Guaranteed' trailer: Aubrey Plaza has feelings!

Comedy lovers know Aubrey Plaza as April Ludgate, the Pawnee Parks Department’s eye-roller-in-chief. But in the Sundance darling Safety Not Guaranteed, Plaza gets a chance to exercise her acting muscles by playing a character who feels things. You know, in between deadpan stares and bouts of sarcasm.

Plaza stars as a magazine intern investigating the man behind a strange classified ad. (“Wanted: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke.”) Though she initially approaches her subject (Mark Duplass) with skepticism, Plaza’s character finds herself drawn to him — and, what’s more, she starts to believe that his insane claims might be true.

The movie also features Kristen Bell, Jeff Garlin, and New Girl‘s Jake Johnson as Plaza’s coworker. Check out the trailer below. READ FULL STORY

Amy Poehler-Adam Scott comedy 'A.C.O.D.' taps Adam Pally of 'Happy Endings'

Happy Endings‘ Adam Pally will join Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler and Adam Scott in the big-screen indie comedy A.C.O.D., EW has learned exclusivelyShort for Adult Children of Divorce, A.C.O.D. features Scott as a subject in a study about the offspring of divorced parents, while Poehler (who, like Pally, is a veteran of the Upright Citizens Brigade) stars as the new and third wife of his father, played by Richard Jenkins. (Yes, that means that Poehler is serving as Scott’s stepmother, which sounds like a far cry from the love nerds that the pair embody on Parks.)

“They asked me and I was like, ‘Yeah, I will do whatever you guys want! I will show up as a key grip,” Pally quips to EW. Luckily, Pally was asked to stay in front of the cameras in a supporting role. Jessica Alba, Jane Lynch, and Catherine O’Hara are among the other actors in the film, which has begun filming in Atlanta.
