With Ruben Fleischer‘s Gangster Squad hitting theaters today, Warner Bros. is squeezing in one last extended trailer. Based on true events, the drama follows a special force of LAPD officers who are tasked with breaking the mob’s iron grip on the city of Los Angeles. The new three-minute promo offers looks at Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling‘s incorruptible cops, but it mostly highlights Sean Penn‘s scenery-chewing performance as gangster king Mickey Cohen. Watch it after the jump.

DreamWorks just took a giant bath on Rise of the Guardians, but is soldiering on with the task of selling its upcoming slate. The next release from the company’s animation arm is The Croods, an Ice Age-style story about a prehistoric human family who daughter (voiced by Emma Stone) is desperate to explore the outside world. The Croods are forced out of their cave only to come face to face with a strapping young hero (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) willing to guide them away from the end of the world.
This new trailer isn’t as effective as the first teaser was, in part, I think, because it focuses on goofier lowbrow humor, rather than spectacle. But there’s an audience that will love this, I’m sure, so have a look below. Read More »

There was no shortage of things to love about Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man, but perhaps the highlight was the budding romance between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). The actors shared the kind of crackling chemistry that’s tough to fake, comfortable and sexy in all the right measures. (The stars themselves apparently agreed, sparking a real-life romance during their time together on set.) A clip from a screen test has just hit the web, making it crystal clear why Stone landed the gig.
Then, if that video has you eager to see more of the pair together, we have some good news about a possible IMAX-exclusive cut of the sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Watch the clip and read about the IMAX release after the jump.

When Bradley Cooper first blipped on the pop culture radar as the loveable friend on J.J. Abrams’ Alias, no one could guess the heights to which he’d soar. He’s gone from bit player to leading man, blockbuster star and now Oscar-hopeful. And once you’ve covered all those bases, that’s when the coolest of cool filmmakers start to take notice. That’s happened to Cooper, as he’s in talks to star in the upcoming untitled Cameron Crowe film (which might be called Deep Tiki) opposite Emma Stone. Read more after the jump. Read More »
Buried in the news of Shailene Woodley‘s latest piece of casting was a major piece of news about her participation in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Marc Webb is back to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Woodley has now been confirmed to play Mary Jane Watson, a role previously played by Kirsten Dunst in the Sam Raimi films. Of course in Webb’s first film, Emma Stone played another of the famous loves of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), Gwen Stacy.
So how does this all fit? Well, Woodley’s part in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will reportedly be small in contrast to Stone’s, setting her up for a larger role in the trilogy’s conclusion, The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Read more of the spoiler filled details after the jump. Read More »

The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly‘s Movie 43 leaned hard on the shock factor of seeing big Hollywood stars revel in foul language and filthy jokes, but the poor green-band trailer is stuck trying to sell the exact same product by only hinting at what the NSFW version could actually show. Is Anna Faris asking Chris Pratt to take a dump on her still comedy gold when the word “poop” has to be substituted with a fart noise? Is Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts bullying their own kid still shocking when they have to keep their behavior G-rated?
Eh, truthfully, I think the answer is that none of this looked all that outrageous to begin with. But at least it’s not any less funny than it was before. Hit the jump to see Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Stephen Merchant, Emma Stone, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Duhamel, Terrence Howard, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Bell, Richard Gere, and so, so, so many more celebs in the new SFW trailer.
