If you’ve been laid off, fired or just trying to find a new job over the past few years, then you know that the job market is a tough place right now, especially for twentysomethings. And now a new comedy about these hard times is on the way.
Get a Job stars Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick as a couple struggling with the rough economy after graduating college. A job at LA Weekly falls through for Teller, and just when things start to turn around with a new job, Kendrick gets the boot. All of this is part of a comedy, because it’s hilarious when life gives you a swift kick in the face. Watch the Get a Job trailer below. Read More »

Angie Han’s review of Other People began by pointing out that the film “sounds like the most stereotypical of Sundance movies” but “in practice, every element is so well executed that the film itself feels like something special.” The same could be said of John Krasinski‘s The Hollars, which shares many of the same Sundance cliches. But The Hollars has an incredible ensemble cast that pushes this film from just another screening on the Sundance schedule to a funny and charming movie that will probably play at a theater near you.

The last Star Wars: Battlefront trailer was a masterpiece of emotional manipulation. It was the lion lurking in the tall grass, watching your helpless nostalgia sneak away from the pack for a drink at the watering hole. It saw the weak spots in your armor, it knew how to break through emotional malaise, it was well aware that your defenses were already down because Star Wars: The Force Awakens actually looks like it could be the movie you’ve been waiting for. And then it struck. Even if you were prepared to see through its emotionally manipulative tactics, it forced a lump into your throat and a tear into your eye. You must play this video game. It’s effective advertising.
The new trailer tries something, uh, a little different. Whereas the first trailer was all about the joys of Star Wars (the joys of childhood!) rescuing you from your adult responsibilities, this one seems to have a slightly darker tone. To be fair, that dark tone is probably unintentional, but it represents the exact wrong Star Wars iconography to borrow and the effect is really, really weird.
But hey, it also features Anna Kendrick. Watch the new Star Wars Battlefront trailer for yourself after the jump.

Universal officially has Elizabeth Banks directing Pitch Perfect 3, after making her feature directing debut on Pitch Perfect 2, following a supporting role in the original film that she also produced. Read More »

Pitch Perfect leading lady Anna Kendrick has been situated to lead DreamWorks Animation’s musical adaptation of the Danish toy known as Troll dolls for over a year now. The project is simply called Trolls, and sees the Oscar nominee playing a relentlessly upbeat character named Princess Poppy.
Now Kendrick finally has some company on the animated adventure as recording star turned actor Justin Timberlake (The Social Network, Runner Runner) has just signed on to voice a lead character. And since this is a musical, it’s likely safe to assume that he’ll be doing some singing as well. Read More »

While housesitting for a friend one weekend, the husband digs up a bone and a gun, sending him on a quest for answers. Meanwhile, the wife sets off on her own adventure involving a handsome stranger played by Orlando Bloom. Watch the Digging for Fire trailer after the jump. Read More »
