Sundance 2013: Magnolia acquires 'Prince Avalanche'

Another Sundance deal is set. Magnolia Pictures has acquired the rights to North American distribution for writer/director David Gordon Green’s Prince Avalanche, starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.

Adapted from the Icelandic film Either Way, the offbeat comedy features Rudd and Hirsch as two men painting traffic lines in a deserted area of Texas, and the unlikely friendship that emerges between them. Green is a Sundance favorite with his previous films such as Snow Angels and All the Real Girls.

“All of us at Magnolia are huge fans of David Gordon Green, and it’s been a dream for a long time to work with him,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles in a release. “Prince Avalanche is incredibly smart, funny, warm and engaging film, with indelible, iconic performances from both Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.”

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch talk 'Prince Avalanche' at Sundance: VIDEO

How did Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch enhance their performances in Prince Avalanche, a remake of the Icelandic film Either Way that director David Gordon Green describes as a “deceptively simple” character study centered on the relationship between two men repairing a road in Texas? For Rudd, it involved stifling his “Alpha-male” tendencies — which was hard, given all the steroids on the set. (They’re kidding… we hope.)

'This Is 40' deleted scene reveals Billie Joe Armstrong's next solo project -- VIDEO

The best way to make people forget about your recent breakdown? Film a funny cameo in Judd Apatow’s new movie. Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong did just that, appearing briefly in This Is 40 — but his best scene apparently ended up on the cutting room floor.

In this deleted bit from the movie, Armstrong tells record label owner Pete (Paul Rudd) all about a new project on which he’d like to embark: “Have you heard of Norwegian death metal? I thought of taking that and mixing it with, like, Belle and Sebastian. It’s sort of music you can cry to but also maybe burn a church down at the same time.” And from there, things just get weirder. Check it out below — and be thankful that we never actually hear the “music” Armstrong is describing:

Box office preview: 'Jack Reacher' leads new releases, but can't compete with 'The Hobbit'

the-hobbit-baggins

Whether or not the world ends tomorrow, things are looking pretty dire for the four new wide releases entering theaters this weekend: Jack Reacher, This is 40, The Guilt Trip, and Monsters Inc. 3D. Of course, December movies need not earn gargantuan grosses on their debut weekends to eventually end up with respectable totals. In 2010, Yogi Bear opened with a weak $16.4 million, but thanks to easy accessibility over the holiday season, when kids are out of school and adults off of work, the film eventually topped out at $100.2 million.

Studios will be hoping for similar endurance from this week’s crop of newcomers — none of them are tracking particularly well, and all of them will likely be crushed by the second weekend of The Hobbit. Here’s how I think the box office might shake out over the Friday-to-Sunday period:

1. The Hobbit – $37 million

The Warner Bros. release has earned $106.5 million in its first six days (for reference, The Return of the King had earned $137.6 million in the same period of time), and it will likely drop by about 55 percent this weekend to $37 million, which would lift its total to about $150 million after ten days.

'Admission' trailer: Tina Fey and Paul Rudd are more than acceptable -- VIDEO

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

Paramount sets 'Anchorman' sequel release date for December 2013

Get ready for more bad hair, mustaches, funky leisure suits, and laughs.

Paramount Pictures has set the theater release date for the sequel to 2004’s Anchorman for Dec. 20, 2013.

Will Ferrell will be back as deep-voiced newsman Ron Burgundy, along with Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner in the comedy directed by script co-writer Adam McKay. McKay has hinted that the sequel will have whole song sequences, and we can only imagine Ferrell’s thick Burgundy mustache fluttering in the breeze during a diva number backed by the Channel 4 News gang.

Behind the scenes of Judd Apatow's 'This is 40' with Megan Fox -- EXCLUSIVE NSFW VIDEO

Did we get your attention with Megan Fox and NSFW in the headline? Good. Now here’s a behind-the-scenes video from the set of Judd Apatow’s upcoming comedy This Is 40, which hits theaters Dec. 21, highlighting the assets — comedic and, um, otherwise — that Fox brings to her supporting role as Desi, a highly sexualized clerk in a clothing boutique.

As you might imagine given the rest of the Apatovian oeuvre, the movie — a semi-sequel to Apatow’s 2007 hit Knocked Up, chronicling one emotionally tumultuous week in the lives of married-with-kids couple Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) — has a healthy heaping of raunchy humor, so… well, if you were planning to watch this video with, say, your grandma, you might want to pump the brakes.

Sundance to premiere 'Lovelace' and Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic

The Sundance Film Festival will give the world its first look at Amanda Seyfried as a porn star in the bio-pic Lovelace and Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in a chronicle of the Apple entrepreneur’s life in jOBS — just two high-profile projects in a packed Premieres section for the indie showcase.

The festival, which runs from Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Utah, already announced its competition lineup and Midnight Movies last week, but this non-competitive group is typically the place where films with celebrity-filled casts and best-known directors debut.

Other titles in today’s announcement include Before Midnight, the third film in the Richard Linklater-directed Ethan Hawke-July Delpy Before Sunrise and Before Sunset series — as well as new films from Steve Carell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Naomi Watts, Brit Marling, Paul Rudd, and Dakota Fanning. Directors Jane Campion, Park Chan-Wook, and Michael Winterbottom are also bringing their latest projects.
