Chances are, if you’re in the target audience for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview, you’re not the type to be easily offended by a bit of nudity and some salty language. Still, maybe you prefer to keep things tamer while you’re at the office. Or maybe you just want to save the wildest jokes for the movie itself. So Sony has released a new The Interview green band trailer, which manages to be pretty funny even without the NSFW stuff. Watch it after the jump.

There’s absolutely no need to touch Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction. Built around an Academy Award winning screenplay, the film is pretty much perfect from beginning to end. It teems with exquisite detail as performances and dialogue tell interweaving stories of crime and craziness. A reinforcement of that absolute brilliance was the main thing I took out of the latest Film Independent at LACMA Live Read, which took place February 20 in Los Angeles. Director Evan Goldberg (This is the End) subbed for Jason Reitman and assembled an eclectic, star-studded cast to read Tarantino’s masterwork. It was a two and a half hour celebration of Pulp Fiction‘s perfection.
While no one could ever replace the iconic cast of John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and so many others, stars like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Lizzie Caplan laughed, imitated and sometimes stumbled through the script with excitement and reverence. Along the way, a few Easter Eggs were uncovered, alternate interpretations attempted and much fun was had. Read about the live read below. Read More »

Into a TV landscape littered with antiheroic morality tales and Scandinavian crime dramas, Showtime is introducing something a little different with Masters of Sex.
Michael Sheen stars as William Masters, a real-life sex researcher whose pioneering work still serves as the basis for much of what we know about sex today. Lizzy Caplan stars as Virginia Johnson, his partner in science and, eventually, love. That cast alone is enough to get me to sit up and pay attention, but the first trailer also makes the show look like a hell of a lot of fun. Hit the jump to check it out.
Be warned that while the trailer is technically SFW — there’s no nudity or even cursing — there’s enough risqué material in here that perhaps you shouldn’t be watching it at work. Unless your office is as open-minded as Masters’, perhaps.

Lizzy Caplan‘s already starred in one wedding comedy this year — the enjoyably acerbic Bachelorette — and Alison Brie got to help Emily Blunt to the altar in The Five-Year Engagement earlier this spring. Now Caplan and Brie are teaming up with one another for yet another marriage-themed romcom, playing sisters in Michael Mohan‘s bittersweet Save the Date.
Caplan plays commitment-phobic artist Sarah, who dumps her boyfriend Kevin (Geoffrey Arend) after a public proposal gone spectacularly wrong. She rebounds with sweet Jonathan (Mark Webber). In contrast, Brie’s Beth is happily preparing to spend the rest of her life with Andrew (Martin Starr) — but he seems somewhat more ambivalent about their future. Watch the trailer after the jump.

If the title character of 3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom looks damn close to blowing a fuse, well, you might too if you had to put up with his problems. Played by Charlie Hunnam, Frankie is an aspiring novelist who’s spent his entire life suffering humiliation at the hands of his ne’er-do-well big brother Bruce (Chris O’Dowd).
When Bruce finally gets sober, Frankie hopes things will have changed between them. But sobriety hasn’t made Bruce any less of an asshole, and he secretly films Frankie having an awkward one-night stand. Soon, the brothers find themselves on an epically strange and desperate journey to keep the tape from falling into the wrong hands. Lizzy Caplan, Chris Noth, and Whitney Cummings also star, but it’s Hunnam’s Sons of Anarchy co-star Ron Perlman you’ll want to keep an eye out for. He’ll be the one stealing scenes in eyeshadow and a lacy satin slip. Really. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The latest female-driven R-rated comedy is Leslye Headland‘s film Bachelorette, which wouldn’t mind finding some of last year’s Bridesmaids audience. The film hit at Sundance and got some good buzz for being a little more dark than the Kristen Wiig film, without sparing any of the laughs.
A green-band trailer we saw a couple weeks back got the story across — Rebel Wilson is getting married and her old friends Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, and Isla Fisher see the pre-wedding celebration as a chance to cut loose. Really loose. Guys like Kyle Bornheimer, Hayes MacArthur, James Marsden, and Adam Scott have moments, too, which as Angie noted, should keep the Party Down fans happy.
This red-band trailer won’t tell you much of what the movie is about beyond the basic concept, but it does offer some dirty jokes that promise a lot about the comedy’s tone, without seeming to give too much away. Read More »
