Henchmen

By their very nature, henchmen fall pretty low on the hierarchy of evil. But that isn’t stopping Henchmen from scaring up an impressive cast. James Marsden and Thomas Middleditch are set to lead the voice cast of the animated supervillain comedy, along with Rosario Dawson, Nathan Fillion, Alfred Molina, and many more. Get up to speed on the Henchman voice cast after the jump.  Read More »

The D Train Trailer
One of the films I enjoyed at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival but didn’t get around to reviewing is The D Train. Directed by Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel, the new indie dramedy tells the story of a loser (Jack Black) who believes he’ll win his way into the cool kids club if he can convince Oliver Lawless (James Marsden), the most popular guy from his high school who’s now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign, to show up with him to their class reunion.

Remember when we use to love Jack Black? He’s back at full force in this new film, but the spotlight shifts to James Marsden. The film is very traditional in execution (as you’ll see in the trailer) but the story takes some interesting swerves you wouldn’t expect from a big screen comedy (unfortunately the trailer strongly hints at the more compelling turns). IFC has released The D Train trailer, and you can watch it now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Unfinished Business Super Bowl spot

There are all-ages and adults-only versions of the new Unfinished Business Super Bowl spot, which shows off the comedy from Ken Scott, starring Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, and Dave Franco as a trio of unlikely colleagues who head to Europe in order to make a big business deal. Unfortunately, they run across a few of Vaughn’s old colleagues, played by Sienna Miller, James Marsden, and Nick Frost, who are trying to make the same deal. There’s a lot of drinking and shenanigans as everyone embarrasses themselves en route to success and/or failure. And this time it’s all cut to The Lonely Island’s track ‘Like a Boss.’ Read More »

The Loft

What could possibly go wrong when you combine five cheating husbands, one secret play pad, and a whole bunch of clandestine affairs? Well, quite a lot, according to the new The Loft trailer starring James Marsden and Karl Urban.

For example, one of those husbands might show up one day to find a dead woman in the bed. Or the guys might start getting mysterious phone calls and blackmail threats. They might start turning on each other, and rousing the suspicions of their wives. Watch The Loft trailer after the jump.

David O Russell on American Hustle set

Way back around 2008 or so, David O. Russell shot most of a political satire called Nailed. The reason we’ve never seen it is that he eventually abandoned it in 2010, after many stops and starts and financial struggles. But every so often, we get word that someone, somewhere might still try to put it out. And as today, a real release seems closer than ever.

U.K. distributor Arrow Films has scooped up Nailed, now called Politics of Love, with intentions of releasing it in 2015. Does that mean it might eventually make its way to our shores as well? Hit the jump for more details on the Nailed release, including the first official synopsis.

Superman Flyby
In 2002 Warner Bros was developing a new Superman movie with then screenwriter JJ Abrams called Superman: Flyby, with Brett Ratner hired to direct. Abrams’ screenplay for the film would have reinvented Superman, incorporating a bunch of new ideas that angered fans when a negative script review was posted on the internet. The film was abandoned and never went into production. Mr. Sunday Movies has created a video essay giving the complete history of Superman Flyby. Watch that now after the jump.
