In the new Jason Reitman film, Men Women & Children, technology really isn’t making our lives easier. Instead of bringing us together, social media, gaming, online dating and other tech advancements too often provide methods to emphasize our fears and insecurities, and all the other things that cause pain and drive us apart. In this new Men Women and Children trailer, we see a dazed young guy played by Ansel Elgort, the girl he’s interested in (Kaitlyn Dever), her tech-paranoid mom (Jennifer Garner) and a host of other characters who either can’t connect, or choose the worst possible ways in which to reach out through technology.

Because Paramount stuck Labor Day in the doldrums of January, we’re getting not one Jason Reitman movie this year but two. The second is Men, Women & Children, an ensemble piece about the way technology has changed the relationships between, well, men, women & children.
Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort, Kaitlyn Dever, Judy Greer, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jennifer Garner, and Dennis Haysbert are among the faces who populate the small town where the action takes place. The first Men, Women & Children trailer has just hit, and you can watch it after the jump.

Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner could potentially be the perfect parents. And in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, they appear to be. That is, until, their family has what is easily the worst day imaginable.
Based on the classic kids book by Judith Viorst, the Disney adaptation is directed by indie filmmaker Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl, Cedar Rapids, Youth in Revolt) and opens in October. Check out the latest trailer below. Read More »
The NFL is a notoriously cautious company. For years, it has not allowed official logos to be used by Hollywood; the NFL did not feel that a negative representation of football benefited the brand in any way. It makes sense, and also casts an odd light on Ivan Reitman‘s Draft Day, the first film ever officially licensed by the NFL. Obviously, the film does not shine a negative light on the league, something other football films definitely have done. There’s no mention of drug use or concussions. The lack of controversy actually works to the film’s advantage, creating a very broad entry point to a subject that might initially seem limiting. Draft Day doesn’t need controversy or on-field action to create drama. Read More »

With Batman vs. Superman now set to open May 6, 2016 instead of July 17, 2015, it’ll be some time before we get to see Ben Affleck in his new batsuit. But Jennifer Garner doesn’t have to wait that long, because one of the perks of being married to a superhero is getting to see the costume first. And according to her, it’s nothing like the previous incarnations of the uniform. Hit the jump to see what she had to say.

We’re having a pretty good day, thanks in part to Disney’s decision to drop the first official Guardians of the Galaxy still after months of anticipation. But if you aren’t, maybe the studio’s other big reveal will be more your speed.
Disney has just debuted a new image from Miguel Arteta‘s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, based on the classic children’s book by Judith Viorst. Though Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) is the only title character, the awfulness of his day does not seem to be limited to him. The rest of the family, which includes Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner, doesn’t look too happy either. Check out the photo after the jump.

Unless you eat, sleep and breathe football, draft day is an afterthought (at best). Who cares what happens when 32 teams pick up some random players from college? Fans, however, know draft day is the point when franchises are made or broken. Hall of Fame players are selected for your roster, or passed up and taken by your rivals. Maybe your favorite team gets Peyton Manning, or maybe they get Ryan Leaf. Maybe Tom Brady is selected after 198 other players. The history and drama behind the NFL Draft is the stuff of legend, which is why Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman‘s script, Draft Day, was at the top of the Black List in 2012.
Now the film is almost here, with Ivan Reitman directing and Kevin Costner heading up an all-star cast including Frank Langella, Jennifer Garner and others. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Matthew McConaughey had quite the year last year, but 2013 isn’t looking so bad, either. Following up another impressive turn in Jeff Nichols’ Mud, he’ll next be starring in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, and then Dallas Buyers Club, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée.
At the center of the story is Ron Woodroof, a Texas man diagnosed with HIV in the early days of the disease. Desperate to live and running out of time, he starts looking into alternative treatments from other countries, and eventually smuggling them in to share with a “buyers club” of other HIV-positive people. The first trailer has just hit, and you can see it after the jump.
