Just a couple years ago Chloe Moretz looked like a munchkin in (500) Days of Summer, and now in this off-set still from Hick, she’s looking a bit older than fourteen as she’s tarted up for her role as “a 13-year-old Nebraska girl who gets more than she bargained for when she runs away to Las Vegas.”
The full photo is after the break, along with a collection of images from Horrible Bosses, in which Seth Gordon (The King of Kong) directs Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston as three people you really don’t want to work for. Read More »

Sony has released the first movie trailer for the new Adam Sandler comedy Just Go With It. Directed by Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Happy Gilmore), the valentine’s week romantic comedy release tells the story of “a plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant’s kids become involved, and everyone heads off for a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives.” The film co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, Brooklyn Decker, Dave Matthews, Nick Swardson, and Kevin Nealon.
It seems like a by the numbers generic romcom, but someone on the IMDB forums claims to have seen a press screening and gave it a possitive review:
thought it was quirky and fun and endearing. The chemistry was good between the characters and the location shoots in Hawaii were beautiful. Sandler and Anniston were good together and the suppoorting cast and quirky cameos of other characters brought some huge laughs.

Writer/director Hany Abu-Assad tackled some pretty weighty subject matter with his 2005 film Paradise Now, a very well received drama about suicide bombers. For his latest picture though, the upcoming action/thriller The Courier, he’s turned his focus to more audience-friendly fare. The film was written by Derek Haas and Michael Brandt (the team behind the 3:10 to Yuma remake and Wanted), and stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as “a courier who has tackled dangerous assignments and never missed a drop. He’s hired to deliver a briefcase to a notorious crime boss who can’t be found. The courier finds himself pursued by corrupt cops, double-crossing feds and rivals from the criminal underworld.”
Now Mickey Rourke and Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds) have joined the cast, with Schweiger playing an FBI agent and Rourke in an unspecified role. Additionally, Schweiger has also joined This Means War, McG’s spy flick about two best friends (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy) who fall in love with the same woman (Reese Witherspoon).
I loved Morgan’s work in Watchmen, and have been awaiting another stand-out performance from him. With this cast and director alongside him, The Courier may provide him an opportunity to live up to his potential—if not as a thespian, at least as an action star. [The Wrap, Variety]

Wanderlust, the Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston comedy about a married couple who try to escape modern society and end up in a hippie commune, is really starting to come together. Much of the cast has already been set—first Justin Theroux (Mulholland Dr.) joined, then Six Feet Under’s Lauren Ambrose hopped on board, and most recently Alan Alda and Malin Akerman were thrown into the mix—and now the always enjoyable Ray Liotta has been added to round out the group. No word on what the part entails, but I’m betting on him playing a stern, ill-tempered police officer who complicates things for our protagonists. Here’s hoping he proves me wrong by getting cast against type this time around.
Judd Apatow is producing the film, along with Paul Rudd, David Wain and Ken Marino, the three of whom teamed up before on Wet Hot American Summer and Role Models. Wain is directing from a script he co-wrote with Marino. This pairing sold me from day one, and the cast certainly doesn’t hurt. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Which actors in Hollywood are the best investment for the movie studios greenlighting new projects? Forbes has published their annual list, and for the second year in a row, Shia LaBeouf ends up at #1. The star has is earning not-so-high paychecks for big budget films such as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and the Transformers films, each of which have made a fortune at the box office. According to Forbes, each $1 studios spend Shia for one of their films, returns an average $81 of profit. I wonder if he will retain his title after the release of Wall Street 2 and Transformers 3. Sequels are almost always a good bet. Check out the full list of the top 10 wisest investments in Hollywood, after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’ve been following the developing cast of Horrible Bosses fairly closely. The film, in which three friends make plans to bump off each others’ three awful bosses, could be a great little comedy if things work well. The last big role to cast has been the third of the title’s horrible bosses, and now an appropriate name has agreed to sign on the dotted line: Kevin Spacey. Read More »
