For years, director Adam McKay and star Will Ferrell had said Paramount wasn’t interested in making a sequel to their cult 2004 hit Anchorman and fans had all but given up hope. Then, a few weeks ago, Ron Burgundy showed up seemingly out of nowhere and announced Anchorman 2 was finally happening. After the initial shock and excitement subsided the questions turned to logistics. Who would return and what changed behind the scenes? The first question was quickly answered, the entire supporting cast (save for Christina Applegate, more on her later) had already committed and now, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, McKay explains what changed and why the sequel was so hard to push through. Read his quotes after the jump. Read More »

Most days, I love my job. Other days, I’m forced to watch the trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.

Going The Distance Pushed Back to September

Warner Bros has informed us that Going The Distance has changed release dates to September 3rd 2010 from August 27th 2010. In making the announcement, Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution stated, “Moving to the Labor Day weekend not only allows us to take advantage of the long holiday weekend, but gives us some distance from the other female-driven films releasing in August.

Going the Distance

Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On The Ropes, American Teen) makes her narrative feature film debut with the romantic comedy Going the Distance. The raunchy screenplay placed highly on the Black List, but it appears to have been tamed into a generic mainstream romcom starring Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Christina Applegate, Ron Livingston and Charlie Day.

An Academy Award nominated director that we’ve championed on /Film in the past…

… a screenplay voted one of the best unproduced scripts by industry insiders…

… and this is the trailer?

Really? Lets hope the movie has something better to offer.

Watch the trailer now, embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
