A new trailer for the Kate Hudson–Ginnifer Goodwin romcom Something Borrowed has just hit, and it’s exactly what you’d expect. The film, based on Emily Giffin‘s bestselling novel of the same title, revolves around good girl Rachel (Goodwin) as she struggles with the impending marriage of the man she loves (Colin Egglesfield) to her best friend (Hudson). John Krasinski also stars, apparently as some dude who hangs around and gives Rachel sassy life advice. It’s being directed by Luke Greenfield (The Girl Next Door, The Animal) from a script by Jennie Snyder (TV’s Gilmore Girls and the new 90210). Watch it after the jump.

We really can’t go two days lately without a James Franco casting story. This particular story is one which might bring him back together with his Howl directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. A year ago we heard the pair were developing a film about porn star Linda Lovelace, based on Eric Danville‘s book The Complete Linda Lovelace.
And now Mr. Franco is in talks to play what would be the most unlikeable role of his career to date: Chuck Traynor, the man who discovered and married Linda Lovelace, and reportedly forced her into prostitution and threatened her at gunpoint into performing in Deep Throat. Read More »
The Weinstein Co has released an early international teaser trailer for A Little Bit of Heaven, a romantic dramedy from director Nicole Kassell (The Woodsman, The Closer, Cold Case). The film stars Kate Hudson as “a guarded woman who finds out she’s dying of cancer, but when she meets her match, the threat of falling in love is scarier than death.” The film co-stars Gael García Bernal, Romany Malco, Kathy Bates, Whoopi Goldberg, Lucy Punch, Rosemarie DeWitt, Steven Weber, and Johann Urb. Looks too generic and by the numbers for me, and the musical selections used in the trailer are beyond horrible. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump.

In addition to offering up quite a few new images of Captain America, the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has first looks at many other films. There’s the first image from The Help, starring Viola Davis and Emma Stone in what is sure to be one of the prestige pictures of fall 2011. There are also new images from Something Borrowed, starring John Krasinski and Kate Hudson, and even an on-set image, enlarged above, from Oren Moverman‘s Rampart, which stars Woody Harrelson and Ice Cube.

If you haven’t already seen the UK trailer for Michael Winterbottom‘s The Killer Inside Me, go watch that now. Then come back here. Because IFC has released a domestic trailer and poster for the film, which adapts Jim Thompson‘s daylight noir novel of the same name, but this new trailer isn’t nearly as effective as the UK version.

Michael Winterbottom‘s adaptation of Jim Thompson‘s novel The Killer Inside Me has long seemed like one of the best bets of 2010. There was the lead casting: Casey Affleck as secretly sociopathic sheriff Lou Ford could be perfect . And then that sales trailer that suggested all the actors, including Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson, might be just right. Festival reactions made the film out to be a truly serious and possibly horrifying affair, which is just as it should be. (Check out David Chen’s review.)
And now there is a trailer, and it’s just a fantastic piece of work that makes the film look enthralling and scary as hell. Read More »
It’s about time we got some really overt (and good) satire about the political events of the last couple years. The Jason Miscallef script Butter, which placed high on the 2008 Black List, may be the ticket. It tells the story of the contestants of an Iowa butter-carving competition, but as an allegory for recent political maneuvering. Sort of.
Now Rob Corddry is set to take the male lead, opposite Jennifer Garner. Read More »
Tracy Morgan is set to take a turn in a police drama called Son of No One, in which he’ll play a role originally set for Terrence Howard. Co-stars are Katie Holmes (continuing her comeback streak), Juliette Binoche and Channing Tatum, with Ray Liotta and Al Pacino. Dito Montiel directs.
Channing is the lead character, “a young cop assigned to a precinct in the working class neighborhood where he grew up, with an old secret surfacing and threatening to destroy his life and family.” Morgan will play a friend of Channing’s character. This could be a good move for the actor; I’d love to see Morgan break away from his increasingly predictable comic persona to show some dramatic chops. [THR]
