Like her House Bunny co-star Emma Stone, Anna Faris is one of those actresses who has enough charm and verve to brighten up even the most lackluster material. And it’s mostly for that reason that I’m actually looking forward to What’s Your Number? The upcoming romcom features Faris as a woman who, upon realizing that she has slept with 20 men, revisits her former flames to see if “the one” might’ve been among them. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Briefly: Anna Faris will now star in an untitled comedy in which her new roommate “turns out to be a stalker from hell.” Her agent and manager actually came up with the story idea based on an experience Anna Faris had in real life, and then Deanna Kizis (who will write the script) and producer Palak Patel developed the idea. A few more details are after the break. Read More »
Hey! Remember the ’80s? Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler and Teresa Palmer do. They’re the cast of the upcoming comedy Take Me Home Tonight, which opens March 4 and is set in 1988. As part of the viral marketing campaign for the film, they’ve created a music video that features the whole cast, a ton of cameos and references/reenactments of upwards of 50 classic Eighties movies, all in the course of four minutes. While some of the references are super obvious – Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, etc. – it’s actually pretty fun to watch and pick out a few of the less obvious ones. Check out the video after the jump. Read More »
Though it feels like there have been an over abundance of nostalgic Eighties comedies, there really aren’t as many as you’d think. Plenty of films in the last few decades have been set in the Eighties but only movies like Hot Tub Time Machine, The Wedding Singer, Adventureland and to a lesser degree American Psycho, Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion, Grosse Pointe Blank and 13 Going on 30 have used the decade as the butt of a joke for the full duration of a film.
You can now add a new member to that club because the Eighties are definitely the punchline in Take Me Home Tonight, an R-rated comedy starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, Michelle Trachtenberg, Michael Biehn, Chris Pratt, Lucy Punch, Michael Ian Black, and Demetri Martin. The film has been on the shelf for several years and will finally be released March 4. You saw the green band trailer a few months ago and now we’ve got the red band trailer complete with nudity, cursing, excessive drug use and more. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
“I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghost,” but I am afraid when more Ghostbusters 3 information comes out. Much like a fourth Indiana Jones film, Ghostbusters 3 is one of those projects I dreamed about as a kid but never thought I’d see happen. Yet with every rumor about a script, Bill Murray appearance and production start date, the 10-year-old in me begins to smile…and then worry that it’s going to be screwed up.
Well, add another bit of info to the ever-growing pile as co-writer, producer and star of the franchise, Dan Aykroyd was recently on a Chicago radio station and confirmed that not only is Ghostbusters 3 currently casting, but that several names are already “strong possibilities.” Find out exactly who after the jump.

I’ve got a feeling that this is a little like Aliens vs Predator: whichever wins, we lose. A couple days ago there was word that Andy Fickman (The Game Plan, Race to Witch Mountain) would direct Anna Faris in TMI. That’s the Kirsten Smith and Marc Klein script originally said to be about two “just friends” types who finally realize they’re made for each other after a drug-induced evening of debauchery.” Ryan Reynolds was once attached, but he’s only producing, not appearing. Variety‘s report last week when Fickman was reported as directed called it slightly differently, saying it’s about “best friends who sleep together and quickly find that they know too much about one another to maintain a relationship.”
So TMI was last week for Fickman. Now Production Weekly reports that he is “attached to direct the horror/comedy spec Boy Scouts vs. Zombies written by Carrie Evans & Emi Mochizuki.” That’s all we’ve got on that script at this point, but the title hopefully gives away everything you need to know. So which one will be first? Can’t say for sure at this point. Bet on TMI, since it’s been in the pipeline for a while. [image via Flickr]
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Earlier today there was a poster for the new film version of Yogi Bear (in 3D!); now there’s a teaser trailer that continues the trend of rather terrible character design, but bolsters it with a really weird-looking mix of live action and CGI animation. Smart move on Warner Bros.’ part, releasing the poster and trailer separately so as to get extra coverage out of the materials. Check out the trailer below, and be prepared to never want to venture into a State Park again. Read More »
