After making a splash at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the indie sensation The Diary of a Teenage Girl is coming to theaters next month. The film may not have made our list of the Best of Sundance 2015, but it’s certainly one of those indies worth seeking out this summer.
Now a new trailer from across the pond has surfaced, showcasing a tale of sexual exploration and coming-of-age, driven stupendously by a breakthrough performance from Bel Powley. And coming through with outstanding supporting performances are Alexander Skarsgard and Kristen Wiig too. Watch The Diary of a Teenage Girl UK trailer below! Read More »

Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess returns with Masterminds, a comedy about two dopes and a schemer (played by Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson, respectively) who team up to steal a truckload of money. Amazingly, the heist goes well, but the fallout isn’t so easy to deal with. In the aftermath of the robbert, when everyone wants the money, things get weird. Among other problems, there’s Jason Sudeikis, turning in a potentially scene-stealing performance as a hired killer.
And then there’s the simple fact that everyone involved in this heist scheme seems to be a total idiot. Which might make the movie really entertaining, in a seriously over the top way. Check out the Masterminds trailer below. Read More »

A reboot version of Ghostbusters is coming in July of 2016 with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig at the helm and actresses Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the lead roles. We’ve heard some chatter about the film before from Feig, with comments on the backlash, as well as on the proposed spin-off movies that might be in the works for a shared universe. Feig also previously mentioned that The Walking Dead was influencing his new approach to Ghostbusters.

Minnie loses her virginity to a much older man (Alexander Skårsgard) who also happens to be dating her mom (Kristen Wiig), and her life only gets crazier and more complicated from there. Check out the first Diary of a Teenage Girl trailer after the jump. Read More »
