The possibilities of online dating leads to a plausible romcom plot possibility: what if a guy liked a girl so much that he just reworked his own personality to match the details of her online profile? It’s basically Catfish, but softer. And so A Case of You stars Justin Long as the guy who gets into trouble when the girl he wants (Evan Rachel Wood) believes the personality he crafts from nothing, and then has to follow through.
But the important part is Peter Dinklage, who seems to be on hand as a barista who offers some simple word choice advice to Long’s character. He’s the highlight of the trailer you’ll find below. Read More »

Frankly, I’m glad How I Met Your Mother is ending with the current season. It’s already spent far too much time spinning its wheels, and while I still enjoy checking in with the gang from week to week, the show definitely isn’t as fresh or funny as it once was. But CBS, unsurprisingly, isn’t quite ready to let it go.
The network is now in talks with 20th Century Fox TV for a lady-centric spinoff unofficially entitled How I Met Your Father. How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are developing the concept with Emily Spivey, best known as the creator of NBC’s short-lived Up All Night. Get plot details and more after the jump.

Charlie Hunnam reportedly exited Fifty Shades of Grey after he got a little too hands-on with the script, but now Sam Taylor-Johnson and her producers have found a new scribe to wrestle it into submission. Mark Bomback, writer of The Wolverine and the Total Recall remake, has been hired to do a polish on Kelly Marcel‘s screenplay.
Meanwhile, though the producers were able to get back on track pretty quickly after Hunnam’s departure, they’re still feeling the consequences. The start date has been delayed by one month, throwing the planned summer opening into doubt. Hit the jump to get the latest updates on the project, or just to skip ahead to the comments so you can preemptively hate on it.

I like the lightweight look of the romcom At Middleton if only because the lead cast, Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga, aren’t the duo you’d expect for a film like this. They look like they’re having a nice time in the film, which follows parents of two different children who are both touring the same college campus. While the kids may or may not like the potential school, turns out the parents like each other just fine.
This doesn’t quite look like Before Sunrise — it’s just so fluffy! — but there might be a bit more than cotton candy super-fun adult crush time on offer. Check out the trailer below, if only to see how Vera Farmiga can make any script seem like a good idea.

Briefly: Cameron Crowe can always assemble a big, all-star cast for any given film, and the project he currently has in the works, a romantic drama set in Hawaii, is no exception. The film already boasts Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray, Danny McBride and Jay Baruchel in a story that follows ”a defense contractor (Cooper) who falls for an Air Force pilot (Stone) after he’s assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii.”
Now John Krasinski is in talks for the film, which will be one of his first big post-Office roles. THR announces the deal, and says that he’ll play “a military man married to McAdams, who is playing Cooper’s ex-wife.”
Crowe scripted and has had this story in the works for a couple years. The film is untitled at this point, and also without a release date.
The 1981 romance Endless Love had a theme song by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross that was one of the biggest singles of the year. So naturally this trailer for the remake features a cover version of the song… ‘Addicted to Love,’ originally by Robert Palmer.
In fact, that’s probably a better song for the story; while the earnest and sweet Ritchie and Ross duet gave Endless Love a similar image, in fact the story is a lot more weird. It features a straight-laced boy and bohemian girl who fall in love and start having loads of sex, thanks in part to the girl’s permissive free-spirit parents. But her mom starts to get off on watching the kids go at it, and eventually there’s an inappropriate attempt a seduction, and arson, and a mental institution. So sweet!
The original, an adaptation of the novel by Scott Spencer, was critically trashed. How will this remake fare? This version stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde, and it seems like the roles have been flipped as she’s the one from the uptight home and he’s the free spirit. Some other elements seem to be in place, but it’s difficult to tell what else has been changed. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
