For high school seniors, college admissions board members can seem almost godlike in their power over the futures. From the time the kids send in their application to the time they hear back, the fate of the world seems to rest in the schools’ hands.* But as the new trailer for Admission shows, the process isn’t always a pleasant one for the folks on the other end, either.

In the new film by Paul Weitz, Tina Fey plays a Princeton admissions officer who takes a recruiting trip to an unusual school run by her former college classmate Paul Rudd. It turns into a potentially life-changing event when she crosses paths with a boy (Nat Wolff) who may or may not be the son she gave up long ago. Watch the video after the jump.

Tina Fey built her career on the fast-paced comedy of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, but with the latter almost at an end it’s time for her to move on to the next phase. If the trailer for Paul Weitz‘s Admission for any indication, that may just end up being movie stardom. Perhaps even as something of a dramatic actor.

Although Admission is billed as a dramatic comedy, it represents a more serious turn than anything we’ve seen from Fey before. Fey plays Portia, a Princeton admissions officer who’s forced to confront a painful secret during what initially appears to be a routine recruiting trip. Paul Rudd also stars, as a former classmate of Portia’s who harbors a crush on her, and Nat Wolff plays a teenager who may have ties to her past. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Steven Spielberg is a busy man, and while his plans to finally make an Abraham Lincoln biopic were announced late last year, we’ve had little news since. We know that Daniel Day Lewis would play the title role, and that Sally Field will be Mary Todd, but other than that, there has been very little to report. That changes today with the addition of Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a big list of other actors who are all in talks now. More details are after the break. Read More »
