Ted 2 may not have the name-brand recognition of an Avengers or the budget of a Star Wars, but it is the only sequel of 2015 that has a foul-mouthed teddy bear as one of its leads. The first image from the new comedy shows said teddy bear (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) with his best friend John (Mark Wahlberg), preparing to for a swim.
The relationship at the heart of Sisters is less unusual, but no less intriguing. Real-life BFFs / perennial Golden Globes co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler star as grown-up siblings plotting one last epic house party. Hit the jump for the first looks at Ted 2 and Sisters. Read More »

The irony of social and political tension is that it can be created not just by large and important actions, but by anything at all. And so, today, we heard President Barack Obama deadpanning “I think it says something about North Korea” that the country would “mount an all-out attack over a satirical film… starring Seth Rogen.”
This is the world we’re in now, where entertainment news and geopolitics are the same thing, where the leader of the United States devotes time in a press conference to a comedy movie.
In the wake of Sony scrapping the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s film The Interview, arguments have erupted over the wisdom behind the move. The Sony hackers — now identified by the FBI as elements of the North Korean government — responded with a new message saying that retaliation would follow if Sony released The Interview in any form, ever. Responding to a question about the hack and the decision to pull the film, Obama says Sony made a mistake pulling the movie, and that retaliation will follow.
UPDATE: Sony responded to the President’s claims later in the afternoon. In the statement, they say “It is still our hope that anyone who wants to see this movie will get the opportunity to do so.” Unfortunately, every VOD outlet has turned them down. Read the full statement below.

Kill Me Three Times stars Simon Pegg as an assassin. Already, you’re probably interested. But Kill Me Three Times apparently has much, much more to offer than just that. Directed by Kriv Stenders, the film stars Pegg as an assassin hired by a husband (Callan Mulvey) to kill his wife (Alice Braga). The problem is, Pegg isn’t the only assassin on the lady’s tail. An assassin team, Sullivan Stapleton and Teresa Palmer, are also trying to kill her and that seems like the first of a multitude of escalating issues for everyone involved.
The film hits iTunes and on demand March 26 before going to theaters April 10. Now, the first Kill Me Three Times trailer has been released. Check out the hilarious, NSFW trailer below. Read More »
In Get Hard, Will Ferrell plays a rich hedge fund manager/douchebag who is convicted of fraud and embezzlement, and sentenced to ten years in a maximum security prison. (Which marks the movie as an outlandish comedy — in real list that guy almost never has to go to prison.) Scared of the big house, Ferrell tries to prep for his ordeal by turning to the only black guy he has any passing contact with, just assuming that he’s been to prison. But not only is Kevin Hart‘s character not an ex-con; he’s a squeaky-clean guy who is probably the furthest thing from a criminal. See how they work together in the Get Hard trailer below.

Previously, the #1 reason why the Alamo Drafthouse is the coolest theater chain in the country probably would’ve been its no talking or texting policy. However, that reason just got knocked off the top spot.
Fresh off the disappointing news that Sony Pictures has cancelled the December 25th release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s comedy, The Interview, the Alamo Drafthouse announced that, in its place, they’ll screen Matt Parker and Trey Stone‘s Team America: World Police.
This won’t be at every theater for every screening unfortunately. In fact, as of right now, it’s just one night, one show, at one theater. But it’s a clever, wonderful piece of programming from a chain known for that kind of thing. Read more about the Team America The Interview screening below.
UPDATE: Paramount Pictures is shutting down this and any other planned screenings of Team America. Read more below.

The new trailer for NBC’s Parks and Recreation comes from the future, and we don’t mean January 2015 when the seventh and final season kicks off. We mean the year 2017, a strange time when Tom Haverford is a mogul and Gary is called Terry. Watch the Parks and Recreation final season trailer after the jump. Read More »
Columbia Pictures has released five new teaser posters for the upcoming Chris Columbus video game sci-fi comedy Pixels. The plot of the movie is about a group of video game experts who are recruited by the military to fight 1980s-era video game characters attacking our planet. Its been pitched as Ghostbusters, but with classic 80′s video game creatures instead of ghosts. And yes, I’ve actually been hearing good buzz from some people in the know. Until now we’ve only seen photos of the main cast: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage (who looks to be playing a send-up of King of Kong’s Billy Mitchell). But these Pixels posters give us our first look at the video game baddies that will be attacking our planet in this film. Hit the jump to get a close up look at Pac-man, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong and Centipede in the first Pixels posters — which are very cool looking.
