This summer, we’ve seen Judy Greer as a mom in Ant-Man and Jurassic World and heard her as a mom in Tomorrowland, which means maybe those films are all actually part of the shared Judy Greer Universe.
But 2015 won’t merely be the year of Greer toiling in supporting roles as a caregiver. She looks like she gets to have a lot of fun and enjoy top billing in Addicted to Fresno, playing a sex addict who tries to get her life together, but accidentally kills a guy and then robs a sex shop, neither of which really helps her plight.
The film also features Natasha Lyonne and a great supporting cast including Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Jessica St. Clair, Molly Shannon, Michael Hitchcock, and Ron Livingston. Check out the funny Addicted to Fresno trailer below. Read More »

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.
