Adam Sandler seemed like an unexpected choice when indie filmmaker Tom McCarthy cast him in The Cobbler, but what we didn’t know at the time was that he was just the beginning of a very eclectic cast. Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens was the next to sign on, and now Dustin Hoffman, Steve Buscemi, and Method Man have all jumped aboard as well. Get plot details and more after the jump.

A few days ago, we posted a red-band trailer for David Gordon Green‘s The Sitter, and several of you complained about the very NSFW audio that opens the trailer. I’m not sure why so many of you are watching movie trailers with the volume turned all the way up in your offices and classrooms — do your bosses really not care if you watch trailers all day as long as they’re SFW? If so, lucky you — but rest assured that you can crank this new green-band version up at top volume without risking the wrath of your superiors and colleagues.
Starring Jonah Hill, the “Adventures in Babysitting meets Superbad” comedy follows a lazy young man who gets roped into babysitting for a family friend. Naturally, one thing leads to another, and our feckless hero and his young charges find themselves on a wild ride that includes psychotic drug dealers (Sam Rockwell and J.B. Smoove), a sexy and willing young woman (Ari Graynor), at least one crazy car chase, and some punches in the face. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Break out your best ‘delayed flight’ metaphors: the George Lucas-produced film Red Tails, which follows the exploits of WWII flyers the Tuskegee Airmen, is finally going to hit skies. Or screens, as it were. The date: January 20, 2012, confirming previous info from director Anthony Hemingway that the film would be released this coming January.
Along with that release date the trailer for the film has just hit. Get a look at the war film that was many years in the making, after the break. Read More »

Briefly: I can’t quite believe that David Gordon Green will have two R-rated comedies out within months of one another in 2011. April sees the release of Your Highness, starring James Franco, Danny McBride, Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel. And then in July there’s The Sitter, starring Jonah Hill as a guy who ends up taking three kids he’s watching across town on a mission to buy drugs for his girlfriend (Ari Graynor). Shockingly, things go wrong. Max Records, Sam Rockwell and J.B. Smoove are in the cast, and now we know that Method Man makes an appearance as well.
We don’t know his role, but as far as rappers-turned-actors go, Method Man has had a better run than many, with roles in The Wire, The Wackenss, Cop Land, Garden State and the upcoming Red Tails. (OK, there are also Meet the Spartans and My Baby’s Daddy, but let the guy just earn a paycheck here and there.) Your Highness looks like fun, especially for someone who grew up on ’80s fantasy films, but I suspect that The Sitter is at least going to be able to compete for laughs, and based on the script may come out on top.
