One of my most anticipated movies of 2016 is Zoolander No. 2, the sequel to the fashion comedy spawned from a character that first appeared on the VH1 Fashion Awards. The first film is a favorite comedy of mine for being so relentlessly dumb and just plain goofy, with two of the best comedic performances that Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell have ever given. And now we get another whiff of the sequel with some new TV spots, including one that perfectly parodies the always stupid fragrance ads on TV all the time. Read More »

Everyone’s officially over the fact that the new Ghostbusters movie stars four very funny and very talented women instead of a couple of dudes, right? We can leave all of that behind and just get excited that we’re getting a new Ghostbusters movie courtesy of the genuinely inspired Paul Feig, right? Okay, good. The last thing we need is this latest batch of news about the upcoming reboot getting tainted by sexist moaning and groaning. Hooray for moving past this and never mentioning it again.
The big news here is that a new image featuring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones suited up has arrived online and they look awesome. Total badasses. The other bit of news is about some of the film’s ghostly villains and they certainly sound promising.

Earlier this week we were treated to a new Ghostbusters still that showed off the whole team in action, and looking damn fierce while doing it. Now a new series of posters get up close and personal with the new characters, played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. The images also offer a better look at the gang’s new gear, including the updated proton pack.

So far we’ve only gotten one official look at the new Ghostbusters team composed of Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones. But that changes today as a new promotional photo has surfaced. It doesn’t look to be from the movie since they’re posing for the photo, but it’s still a pretty slick little snapshot of the team with some ominous mist around them. Check out the new Ghostbusters reboot photo below! Read More »
Jane Got a Gun, which recently revealed a new trailer, was perhaps the most promising Relativity Media project to be affected by the studio’s bankruptcy. Another project of Relativity’s that took a hit? Masterminds, a crime comedy directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) and executive produced by Jody Hill and Danny McBride (Eastbound and Down). It was originally scheduled for August of this year, but we won’t see Hess’ film until next fall.
Get the new release dates for Masterminds and other Relativity films after the jump.

A decade and a half after he saved the Prime Rib of Propecia with the power of a single fierce look, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) is back in the new trailer for Zoolander 2, along with his BFF Hansel (Owen Wilson). And you know what that means: things are about to get really, really, ridiculously good-looking — and really, really ridiculously stupid — up in here.
Zoolander 2 brings back Will Ferrell as Jacobim Mugatu, and introduces Penelope Cruz as an Interpol agent and Kristen Wiig as a fashion designer. Justin Bieber stars as himself, and Benedict Cumberbatch as… well, you’ll see. Watch the Zoolander 2 trailer after the jump. Read More »
It’s a staple of the fall movie season to see an actor, usually one known for comedies, step outside of their comfort zone and deliver a powerful dramatic performance, wowing audiences and critics alike. And that movie is finally throwing itself into the Oscar race as a last-minute entry.
The first trailer for a new indie drama called Crying in a Sweater has arrived, showing off a promising tour-de-force performance from Saturday Night Live veteran Kristen Wiig as a woman struggling through life’s trials and tribulations.

At first, Nasty Baby looks like a pretty typical Sundance indie. Kristen Wiig stars as a woman trying to get pregnant with the help of her best friends, gay couple Freddy (Sebastián Silva) and Mo (Tunde Adebimpe) in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. There’s some raunchy banter, some interpersonal tension, a self-consciously quirky cast, and the usual themes of friendship, family, and growing up.
But Silva, who also directed, isn’t really interested in being typical. He likes the dark and unexpected, as he’s shown in films like The Maid, Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus, and Magic Magic, and now in the first Nasty Baby trailer. By the end, Nasty Baby starts to feel like a horror film, even if it’s not exactly clear what we’re supposed to be afraid of. Watch the Nasty Baby trailer after the jump. Read More »
