For high school seniors, college admissions board members can seem almost godlike in their power over the futures. From the time the kids send in their application to the time they hear back, the fate of the world seems to rest in the schools’ hands.* But as the new trailer for Admission shows, the process isn’t always a pleasant one for the folks on the other end, either.

In the new film by Paul Weitz, Tina Fey plays a Princeton admissions officer who takes a recruiting trip to an unusual school run by her former college classmate Paul Rudd. It turns into a potentially life-changing event when she crosses paths with a boy (Nat Wolff) who may or may not be the son she gave up long ago. Watch the video after the jump.

Tina Fey built her career on the fast-paced comedy of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, but with the latter almost at an end it’s time for her to move on to the next phase. If the trailer for Paul Weitz‘s Admission for any indication, that may just end up being movie stardom. Perhaps even as something of a dramatic actor.

Although Admission is billed as a dramatic comedy, it represents a more serious turn than anything we’ve seen from Fey before. Fey plays Portia, a Princeton admissions officer who’s forced to confront a painful secret during what initially appears to be a routine recruiting trip. Paul Rudd also stars, as a former classmate of Portia’s who harbors a crush on her, and Nat Wolff plays a teenager who may have ties to her past. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Hayao Miyazaki’s Ponyo Gets U.S. Release

ponyo
Legendary Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki‘s latest movie Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea will finally be getting a domestic release. The film was released last July in Japan, and has since grossed over ¥15.0 billion ($153.1 million). Disney’s John Lasseter has been working with Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy to make the American release of the movie, Miyazaki’s “biggest hit ever Stateside.” Spirited Away earned a little more than $10 million stateside on 714 screens, and the plan is to give Ponyo an even wider release. The movie, retitled just Ponyo, hits theaters on August 14th 2009, and Disney has announced the English-language voice cast.

Noah Cyrus provides the voice of a baby goldfish named Ponyo who desires to be a human, and gets her wish. She runs away from her home in the sea and befriends a five-year-old human boy named S?suke (voiced by Frankie Jonas). Other cast members include Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin and Betty White.
