Based on the cast list, you’d probably think Ross Katz‘s Adult Beginners was a broad comedy. The lead is Nick Kroll of Kroll Show and The League fame; co-stars include SNL‘s Bobby Moynihan, Community‘s Joel McHale, 30 Rock‘s Jane Krakowski, and comedians Mike Birbiglia and Jason Mantzoukas.
But while the Adult Beginners has some laughs, it’s really more of a gentle dramedy. Kroll plays an entrepreneur whose career is in tatters. In an effort to rebuild his life, he moves in with his sister (Rose Byrne), her husband (Bobby Cannavale), and their young son. Watch the Adult Beginners trailer after the jump. Read More »

Jamie Foxx got to play a supervillain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earlier this year, but in this winter’s Annie, he’ll be more like a superhero. Batman, to be specific. Or so his character claims in the new Annie trailer.

Plucky orphan Annie made her Broadway debut over thirty years ago, and started out as a comic book strip character fifty years before that. But Sony’s Annie makes her young and new again, by transporting the action to modern-day New York City.
Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) plays Annie herself, who’s under the not-so-caring care of Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). Her boundless optimism pays off when she crosses paths with Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx), a billionaire running for political office. Watch the new Annie international trailer after the jump.

Jon Favreau returns to his roots with the upcoming comedy Chef. He wrote, directed and starred in the film, which tells the story of a chef who tackles his own independent food truck after being unhappy with his more traditional restaurant job. The film is a far cry from Favreau’s latest work, the Iron Man films and Cowboys and Aliens. That’s surely by design. He hasn’t skimped on the talented cast, though, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt,and Scarlett Johansson.
The film opens May 9, check out the Chef trailer below. Read More »

Quvenzhané Wallis was an unknown when she was cast in the offbeat indie Beasts of the Southern Wild, but her winning personality and natural talent won her fans and earned her accolades in no time. Now she’s applying those qualities to a more conventional project, Will Gluck‘s updated adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Annie.
The first =trailer offers plenty of chances to see Wallis in action, singing and dancing her way through modern-day Harlem. Not even the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) can keep Wallis’s Annie down, and in seemingly no time at all she’s charmed her way into the life of kindly billionaire Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx). Watch the first trailer after the jump.
