Jay and Mark Duplass are following up their film Cyrus with Jeff Who Lives at Home, starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Judy Greer, and Susan Sarandon. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September, where it was called “a lovely, nicely paced and completely heartfelt look at a complicated relationship between brothers” (CinemaBlend) and the best film yet from the Duplass brothers, which “doesn’t suddenly break your heart, but, rather, it suddenly heals it — with a moment of such delicacy and sincerity that you feel lucky to witness it.” (The Playlist)
Jeff Who Lives at Home will open limited on March 16. The trailer for the film premieres tomorrow on Apple. In the meantime, check out the new poster below. Read More »

If last month’s trailer for The Lorax seemed surprisingly cutesy and sweet for an urgent environmental fable, perhaps the new Australian trailer will balance it out. Where the last one really played up the colorful setting and playful tone, the new video offers a much better look at the destruction the greedy Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms) hath wrought. Seriously, the Once-ler seems to live in some Seuss-ified version of the bleak post-apocalyptic landscape from The Road.
Based on a classic children’s book by Dr. Seuss, the film sees a young boy named Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) who sets out to learn the true story of how the Once-ler came to trash the Truffula trees over the warnings of the righteous, if slightly annoying, Lorax (Danny DeVito). Watch the new trailer after the jump.

Here’s the trailer for The Lorax, the CGI animated adaptation of the Dr. Seuss book of the same name. The story describes a budding industrialist, the Once-ler, who destroys a small ecosystem in order to make and sell his invention, the theed, a thing that everyone needs. In doing so he meets the disapproval of the Lorax, who speaks for the trees.
In the book and original 1972 animated version, a boy finds the Once-ler and provides our window into the story. He was just a boy who wandered up to the Once-ler’s home, but in this film the boy seems to have a much more active role, and the trailer spends about half its time with him before introducing the Once-ler, voiced by Ed Helms, and the Lorax, gruffly voiced by Danny DeVito.

Anyone who read Dr. Seuss‘ The Lorax as a kid is undoubtedly familiar with the title character, the mustachioed orange grump who speaks for the trees. The villainous Once-ler, on the other hand, has always remained more of a mystery. Seuss’ books showed only a pair of long, spindly arms, leaving readers to guess at the rest of his appearance.
We’ll never know exactly how Seuss pictured him, as the writer and illustrator passed away in 1991. But Universal has unveiled its take on the character in a new image from the upcoming animated adaptation of Seuss’ tale. Directed by Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda and produced by Christopher Meledandri (Horton Hears a Who), The Lorax features the voices of Danny DeVito as the eponymous creature and Ed Helms as the Once-ler. Take a look at the Once-ler, and a couple of other images, after the jump.

Aziz Ansari, Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Ed Helms, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Jamie King and Samuel L. Jackson are all Star Wars fans just like us. Unlike us, they’re all big stars, some of whom are even part of the Star Wars universe itself. They also all appear in a brand new video to help promote a bunch of charitable ventures between Lucasfilm and Stand Up To Cancer. Fans can buy t-shirts, bid on super rare Star Wars collectibles and more with proceeds going to the charity.
Find all the appropriate links as well as the video – which is basically the above stars doing a comedic reenactment of the original trilogy in 3 minutes – after the jump. Read More »
