After Bad Moms took ins over $180 worldwide earlier this year at the box office, on a budget of just $20 million, STX Entertainment made the decision to quickly keep the franchise alive with a spin-off focusing on the other parents. Bad Dads was set for release on July 14, 2017, and it felt like an odd way to capitalize on the success of the film, especially without any of the original cast or writers/directors Jon Lucas & Scott Moore involved. But now Bad Moms is getting a sequel of its own too.

Imagine if Mean Girls‘ Regina George never got hit by that bus, and instead continued along the path she’d been on before she met Cady Heron. Imagine the smug, gossipy, mean mom she’d grow up to be. That’s more or less the character Christina Applegate plays in Bad Moms, the new comedy from 21 & Over writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Together with her two besties (Jada Pinkett-Smith and Annie Mumolo), Gwendolyn rules the PTA with an iron fist.
But they aren’t the “bad moms” of the title. That’d be Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn, three stressed-out suburban moms. Fed up with the pressure to be perfect parents, they decide to indulge themselves for a change. When Gwendolyn stands in their way, they realize they’ve got to take her down. Watch the Bad Moms trailer after the jump.

In just over a week, we’ll get the chance to blast off for Tomorrowland. But if you really want to follow heroine Casey Newton’s journey, first you’ll want to stop by the Blast From the Past Super Store.
In a new ad, proprietors Hugo (Keegan-Michael Key) and Ursula (Kathryn Hahn) show off their wares — mostly sci-fi collectibles and comics, and perhaps the occasional magic pin that takes you to an alternate dimension. And yes, you can actually buy things from the Blast From the Past Super Store. Check out the Tomorrowland viral video after the jump. Read More »

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.

The first teaser for HAPPYish, the new Showtime series starring Steve Coogan, was just OK. It introduced a middle-aged guy who is struggling to deal with his family and changing social structures around him and, maybe, not having such a great time with all of it. This new HAPPYish trailer is infinitely more entertaining. It indicates a lot more of the show’s moment to moment comedy, and reveals more variety in Coogan’s performance. This is the one to check out, and you can do so after the break. Read More »

Here’s a teaser for the new Showtime comedy HAPPYish, which premieres in April. The show stars Steve Coogan as Thom Payne, a mid-40s guy who has to deal with a young new boss who throws around business buzzwords with alarming freedom. But the arrival of that guy in Payne’s life is just the catalyst for other questions, primary among which is whether or not Payne can ever actually be happy.
Also appearing in the half-hour show are Kathryn Hahn and Bradley Whitford, and guest stars including Ellen Barkin (who shows up in this HAPPYish trailer), Carrie Preston, Molly Price and Andre Royo. Read More »

For the first time since 2001, we have a new Peter Bogdanovich film arriving this year. She’s Funny That Way (formerly titled Squirrels to the Nuts, a reference to Ernst Lubitsch’s Cluny Brown) stars Owen Wilson as Arnold, a theater director who gets involved with an escort and aspiring actress (Imogen Poots) whose therapist (Jennifer Aniston) is dating his playwright (Will Forte) — who, in turn, begins to fall for the escort.
Meanwhile, Arnold tries to duck the wrath of his wife (Kathryn Hahn), who’s also his star, along with her ex (Rhys Ifans). Lucy Punch is somehow involved as well. It’s a lot to keep track of, so see if you can keep up with the She’s Funny That Way trailer after the jump. Read More »
