This week’s second trailer for This Is The End once again features what’s sure to be one of the better trailer moments this year: Michael Cera slapping Rihanna on the butt, and then her punching him in the face. In the red band trailer, that’s followed up with more of Cera’s true colors. In this all-ages version, things feel decidedly more tame, but no less funny. Both trailers together give us a great of idea of what to expect on June 12 when directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg bring together many of their funny, famous friends for a hard-R rated comedy about the end of the world.

Sure, it’s got noble warriors, a vicious villain, a graceful queen, and an old, bitter feud, but the most epic thing about Epic may be the voice cast. Amanda Seyfried leads as Mary Katherine, an ordinary girl who somehow gets shrunk down and finds herself involved in the grand yet very, very tiny battle between the protectors and the destroyers of the forest.
The characters she meets along the way are voiced by the likes of Christoph Waltz, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Aziz Ansari, Chris O’Dowd, Blake Anderson, Steven Tyler, Beyoncé Knowles, and Pitbull. Jason Sudeikis voices her father. The latest trailer makes sure the emphasize just how many celebrities have gone into the making of this movie. Watch it after the jump.

A star-studded cast works wonderfully as a marketing gimmick, but as films like New Year’s Eve and Movie 43 have proven, it’s no guarantee of quality. Fortunately, Blue Sky Studios’ animated adventure Epic seems to have a little more going for it.
Amanda Seyfried voices Mary Katherine, a normal girl who gets caught up in an old and bitter battle between the protectors of the forest (voiced by Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, and others) and the destructive forces led by Mandrake (Christoph Waltz). Beyoncé, Pitbull, Steven Tyler, Judah Friedlander, Aziz Ansari, and Blake Anderson also star. Watch the second trailer after the jump.

We’ve all seen Back to the Future. But have any of us seen it with Aziz Ansari? Same goes for Raising Arizona. We’ve all seen it, but never with Nick Kroll. And those are just two of the awesome opportunities coming up during the 2nd Annual Wayne Federman Film Festival, which takes place from February 28-March 2 at the Cinefamily in Los Angeles, CA and features six amazing movie screening with six amazing comedians.
Federman is one of those classic “that guy” actors everyone knows and he came up with the idea to get a bunch of famous stand-up comedians to pick films that inspire them, introduce, screen and talk about them. So that’s what going to happen. The full schedule is below. Read More »
Following on the heels of a bunch of character images, here’s the first full trailer for Blue Sky Studios’ Epic, directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots) and featuring the voices of Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, and Aziz Ansari (in what seems to be essentially a parralel of Eddie Murphy’s gig in Shrek). Seyfried voices a girl who is pulled into a tiny forest battle between Leafmen and their enemies; naturally there’s a handsome little leaf dude (Hutcherson), a weird sidekick (Ansari) and a bunch of eye-candy creature-fairy-things.
Much like the Ice Age series from Blue Sky Studios, this is a beautifully-animated piece of work that looks like it will have more appeal for kids than big crossover success in the vein of Pixar.

The first teaser trailer for Blue Sky’s CG-animated Epic was wonderful at showing off its fantastical forest setting, but not so much at introducing us to the characters. We heard more of Snow Patrol’s “The Lightning Strike” than we did dialogue from the cast, despite a star-studded lineup including Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Colin Farrell, Beyonce Knowles, Jason Sudeikis, Aziz Ansari, and Chris O’Dowd.
But now a fresh batch of images have cropped up to show us who’s who in the picture, and what they’re all doing there. Hit the jump to see images of Hutcherson and Farrell’s miniature Leafmen warriors, Knowles’ Mother Nature incarnate, Waltz’s villainous force of decay, Ansari’s rather Tom Haverford-esque slug, and more.

Two of G4′s signature geek shows, Attack of the Show and X-Play, will officially be cancelled at the end of 2012. The network is slowly starting its rebranding process to a more upscale, male audience (a la GQ) and the two pop culture centric shows aren’t part of that plan. Each will continue to air new episodes through December, including tributes with returning hosts, guests and more, leading up to their series finales.
