Adam Sandler‘s partnership with Netflix either got off to a great start or a terrible one, depending on how you want to look at it. The Ridiculous 6 got horrid reviews even by Adam Sandler standards, and attracted controversy for its treatment of Native Americans. On the other hand, Netflix claims it was “the most-watched movie in the history of Netflix.” And in either case, it doesn’t really matter because Sandler already has a four-picture deal with the company. Now he’s preparing to drop the second of those movies.
The Do-Over stars Sandler regular David Spade as Charlie, a sad sack who spends his days shuffling between the job that he hates and the family that he doesn’t much care for either. A high school reunion puts him back in touch with an old friend, Max (Sandler), who seems to be living the dream. At first, Max offers Charlie the promise of a new life full of fun and adventure and pretty girls. But then Max tries to take things to the next level by faking their deaths, and things spiral out of control. Watch The Do-Over trailer after the jump. Read More »
The last time Aubrey Plaza and Zac Efron got crazy together, it was with Robert De Niro in the dreadful Dirty Grandpa. However, in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, they have Workaholics star Adam DeVine and Pitch Perfect leading lady Anna Kendrick to help out. Plus, it helps that the script comes from Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, the scribes behind the hit comedy Neighbors and the sequel coming this summer.
A new Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates red band trailer has arrived, featuring Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza scamming the hell out of our title characters, who are desperate for some respectable ladies for their sister’s wedding. This actually doesn’t look half bad. Watch the new trailer below. Read More »
There’s being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and then there’s finding yourself in the middle of a group of neo-Nazis who will stop at anything to cover up a murder. That’s exactly what happens in Jeremy Saulnier‘s latest thriller Green Room when a punk rock band sees something they weren’t supposed to after playing a shady stop on a little cross country tour.
Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) are among the bandmates while Imogen Poots (Fright Night) is the concertgoer whose friend has met a grisly fate at the hands of another band member’s violent ways. They all end up stuck in this hell that is meticulously taken care of by Patrick Stewart and his loyal group of skinheads. A new Green Room red band trailer shows just how intense this movie truly is, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Read More »
Next month brings an epic battle in the form of Captain America: Civil War, but a few weeks later, an even crazier face-off will take place, and it’s going to have a lot more dildos. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising has Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne facing yet another college nightmare, as a wild sorority moves in next door just when they are about to finalize a deal on selling their house.
Of course, they call in Zac Efron to try to take them down, but he just might not be enough. That’s when they decide to call in some more parents to see if they can wrangle in their kids. One of those parents just happens to be LL Cool J, and he finds a few things that belong to his daughter that he would have been better off not knowing about. See what I mean in the new Neighbors 2 red band trailer, which is obviously NSFW. Read More »

It’s been nearly three years since Scot Armstrong started shooting Search Party, an R-rated comedy starring Happy Endings alum Adam Pally and Silicon Valley stars T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch. Originally, the plan was for Universal to open Search Party in fall 2014 — but fall 2014 came and went without a release, and it’s only now, as we creep into summer 2016, that it’s finally getting ready to hit theaters.
Search Party has strong shades of The Hangover, which seems appropriate enough considering Armstrong wrote The Hangover Part II. Miller and Pally play Jason and Evan, friends of groom-to-be Nardo (Middleditch). Convinced Nardo is making a huge mistake, Jason bursts into the wedding and ruins it. A devastated Nardo heads to Mexico to try and win back his bride, only to wind up naked and stranded and alone with no one to call for help but Jason and Evan. Watch the Search Party red-band trailer below. Read More »
Sausage Party isn’t the only R-rated animated film featuring a standout cast we’ll see this year. Next month, Nerdland will make its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, and the voice cast includes Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt, Mike Judge, Hannibal Buress, Molly Shannon, and Kate Micucci. For some, this film may have come out of nowhere, but if you’re always keeping an eye on what screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en) is working on, then you might’ve already heard about this adult animated feature.
Now the first Nerdland trailer has arrived, and you can watch it after the jump. (Be warned: It’s a red-band trailer, which means it’s slightly NSFW.)

With some advanced screenings and a premiere out of SXSW behind us, the buzz on Richard Linklater‘s new comedy Everybody Wants Some!! (yes, the title has two exclamation points) has been extremely positive. Our own Jacob Hall just caught the film down in Austin, Texas and he called it “a joyous film, a comedy tinged with an invisible melancholy.”
In anticipation of the film’s release on April 1st, a new red band trailer has arrived to show off the wild party that drives this spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused. Of course, beware of the salty language and college party nudity that lies within this trailer, making it NSFW or any libraries that you crazy college students might be using to procrastinate.

Melissa McCarthy may not be returning for the Gilmore Girls revival, to the endless disappointment of Gilmore Girls fans, but don’t worry — she’s got plenty of other stuff to keep her busy in the coming months. Not only will she appear as one of the new fab four in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, she’s also starring in The Boss, which reunites her with her Tammy director (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone.
McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, a hotshot CEO whose extravagant lifestyle comes crashing down when she’s arrested for insider trading. She emerges from prison disgraced and discouraged, but finds an unlikely path back to the top in the form of Girl Scout cookies. Or rather, “Darnell’s Darlings Brownies.” Kristen Bell plays Michelle’s reluctant business partner, and Peter Dinklage shows up as… unclear, but the role involves him wielding a sword. Watch The Boss red-band trailer after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
After making a huge splash by bringing his small screen character Borat to the big screen in one of the most unique and hilarious comedies of the past 20 years (despite endless quotes from everyone nearly ruining it), Sacha Baron Cohen hasn’t exactly captured the magic of that feature film outing, but he’s not giving up.
The latest comedy from the creator and star of Da Ali G Show is The Brothers Grimsby, a conventional action comedy starring Mark Strong as one of the greatest spies working today, who suddenly finds his career and life in jeopardy when his estranged, screw-up of a brother shows up to reconnect with him. A new Brothers Grimsby red band trailer has just surfaced, taking full advantage of the roster of characters Cohen has played before in order to help audiences get interested in this new one.
