Anchorman 2 bloopers

As audience members, we’re encouraged to laugh as long and as loud as we can at Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But as the stars of the show, Will Ferrell and company were obligated to maintain a straight face. Which isn’t always easy when the scenes are this hilarious.

A recently released reel of Anchorman 2 bloopers show the stars screwing up and screwing around on set — riffing on specialty condom brands, bursting into giggles at the phase “frothy ejaculate,” or nearly tearing up with laughter during an awkward romantic scene. Even Brian Fantana’s famous kittens get in on the non-camera-ready action, adorably attacking each other instead of their toys. Watch the video after the jump.

Hateship Loveship

Kristen Wiig may have gotten her start on Saturday Night Live, but her range as an actress expands far beyond comedy. The new Hateship Loveship trailer takes her to the dramatic end of the spectrum, playing the mousy caretaker to troubled teen Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld).

The plot gets rolling when Sabitha plays a cruel practical joke on Wiig’s Johanna, encouraging her to fall for Sabitha’s recovering drug addict dad Ken (Guy Pearce). The picture was helmed by Liza Johnson, director of the acclaimed if underseen Return, and based on Alice Munro’s short story Hateship Loveship Courtship Loveship Marriage. Watch the Hateship Loveship trailer after the jump.

Skeleton Twins

When Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig were building their careers on Saturday Night Live, they played multiple characters every single week. That took incredible acting chops. Though they’ve since left the show and are concentrating mostly on comedy films, Craig Johnson‘s second film The Skeleton Twins proves these skilled comedic performers can be dramatic as well.

The Skeleton Twins is about estranged siblings, Maggie and Milo, who haven’t spoken in a decade. After they are reunited by tragedy their relationship is quickly rekindled, but deep old wounds re-open. That may sound overly solemn and, at its heart, The Skeleton Twins is certainly a drama. But you don’t cast Hader and Wiig just to cry and be depressed. The chemistry they built for years on TV sizzles on the big screen in characters with an exuberant realism. The movie itself is good, but Hader and Wiig make it great. Read More »

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

There have been no shortage of teasers, trailers, and clips for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller‘s latest directorial effort, but for the most part the footage has been revealed in brief one- or two-minute increments. Today, we have a brand-new trailer for the romantic adventure that clocks in at six minutes long.

Based on the 1939 short story by James Thurber and the 1947 movie inspired by same, Stiller’s Walter Mitty follows a timid Life Magazine photo editor who constantly daydreams to escape his dull life. When his job is threatened, however, he sets out on an epic journey every bit as incredible as the elaborate fantasy sequences he’s concocted in his head. Watch the latest promo after the jump.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Most of us lead fantasy lives more “noteworthy and mentionable,” as one might put it, than our real lives, but the protagonist (Ben Stiller) of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty faces a bigger divide than most.

But that all starts to change for him when real-life circumstances threaten to put him out of a job. In order to save himself and the woman he loves, he must embark on the kind of wild, colorful adventure he’d previously only imagined. Hit the jump to watch the newest trailer.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty isn’t a fantasy movie per se. There are no hobbits or house elves, and when Walter needs to get from New York to Greenland he hitches a ride on an airplane, not a friendly dragon. But the world inside Walter’s head is a different story, as demonstrated in the latest clip from Ben Stiller‘s fanciful drama. Check it out after the jump.
