Jason Sudeikis got his start on Saturday Night Live, and he still does his fair share of goofy comedies — he’ll be voicing one of the angry birds in Angry Birds, for example. But recently, he’s also started to emerge as a viable romcom leading man. He did excellent work opposite Alison Brie in last year’s Sleeping With Other People, and now he’s following it up with the indie dramedy Tumbledown.
His leading lady here is Rebecca Hall, the still-grieving widow of a musician. When Sudeikis’ Andrew, a pop culture scholar, arrives to conduct some research on her late husband, she treats him with hostility at first, but… well, if you’ve ever seen a romcom before, you can probably guess where this is going.

If you recognize Christopher Abbott, it’s probably from his turn as poor overlooked Charlie on HBO’s Girls. But a lack of appreciation definitely isn’t an issue in his new film, Hello I Must Be Going.
Directed by Todd Louiso (Love Liza, also Dick in High Fidelity), the Sundance romcom centers around thirtysomething Amy (Melanie Lynskey, Heavenly Creatures), who’s recovering from a painful divorce. While at a dinner with her parents, she meets the 19-year-old Jeremy (Abbott), and the two strike up an illicit affair that gives her a fresh new outlook on life. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Tony Kaye got a reputation for being hard-headed during the production of American History X, and though he released the incendiary abortion documentary Lake of Fire in 2006, the years since American History X haven’t been easy for the director when it comes to narrative films. His movie Black Water Transit has been on the shelf for years now, and Kaye seemed like he might be a permanent resident of director jail.
But his new film Detachment is finally getting a release. The film stars Adrien Brody as a substitute teacher who may have more problems than his studens do. The supporting cast is big: Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, William Petersen, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, and James Caan, and Brody’s work seems like it might even be as good as the bold pullquotes that decorate the new trailer would suggest. Check out the trailer below and see for yourself. Read More »

Universal Pictures has released the an extended movie trailer for Superbad/Adventureland director Greg Mottola‘s sci-fi adventure comedy Paul which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (and an alien voiced by Seth Rogen). The teaser trailer, released on October (watch it here), was met with mixed response. That said, I’m a huge fan of Mottola’s previous films, the cast is pretty stacked, and the geek-focused plot seems up my alley. I’ve heard nothing but good buzz coming out of test screenings of the film.

We’ve seen a teaser and an international trailer for Little Fockers, the second sequel to Meet the Parents, and now there is a full theatrical trailer. What’s the difference? In addition to showing more plot and (depending on your point of view) jokes, this trailer has a few shots of Dustin Hoffman, whose mart was shot after the teaser debuted. Read More »
Not much to say here — Little Fockers is the third film in the unlikely series spawned by Meet the Parents. The upside is that, based on this trailer, the movie seems to be slightly less about the children of Ben Stiller‘s character than you might guess. The downside is that, based on this trailer, the movie looks like another couple hours of watching Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro make antagonistic eyes at one another. If that’s your thing, then this will look like pure gold. Read More »
