The Hangover films have been gigantic successes, but they might be a little more raunchy than some audiences want. For your family members who maybe want to stick to movies like Meet the Parents, here’s Last Vegas. The movie is set in Vegas, with Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline as four life-long friends who trek to the city for a bachelor party.

National Treasure captain Jon Turtletaub directs, and the first teaser makes it look as lightweight as the concept sounds. Sure, there’s something to be said for watching a couple of these actors break out of their usual patterns. It’s cute to watch Morgan Freeman play a guy who gets wasted on vodka/Red Bull, for example, and I won’t begrudge Michael Douglas having fun on screen at this point in his life and career. Whether that will make you want to watch the actual film is another question.

Morgan Freeman

Several months back, there was talk that Christian Bale could re-team with The Dark Knight Rises cinematographer Wally Pfister for the latter’s directorial debut Transcendence. That potential casting didn’t quite pan out, but now Pfister’s enlisting the help of a different Batman actor.

Morgan Freeman, who played Lucius Fox in all three Dark Knight installments, has entered final negotiations for the sci-fi pic. Johnny Depp is set for the lead, while Paul BettanyRebecca Hall, and Kate Mara are also attached to star. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Now You See Me

This year is turning out to be a big one for magicians. Last month, Steve Carell and Jim Carrey duked it out as battling Vegas showmen in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and next month our favorite non-Alliance illusionist Gob Bluth returns for the fourth season of Arrested Development. Then, just a few days after that, Louis Leterrier‘s Now You See Me will demonstrate what happens when magicians apply their special skills to criminal ends.

Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco star the Four Horsemen, a magic supergroup that robs banks to line the pockets of their fans, while Mark Ruffalo and Mélanie Laurent play the agents trying to take them down. Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman also star. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

Lionsgate made two release date changes today.

Now You See Me, which comes from director Louis Leterrier and features Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, and Michael Caine, has been pulled up from July 7 to May 31. The thriller centers around a group of illusionists who pull off heists, seemingly at the same time they’re on stage doing magic tricks. The trailer has been out for a while, and the cast is certainly appealing. Hard to tell if the movie will follow through on the great premise and talented cast. It’ll be up against narrow competition from Universal’s The Purge and a limited release of Zal batmanglij’s Sound of My Voice follow-up The East, but The Hangover Part III and Fast & Furious 6 will still be in theaters from the week before.

Another film from the studio has moved up, as well. The action/comedy sequel Red 2 was slated to open on August 2, but will now bow on July 19. Dean Parisot directed with Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Helen Mirren returning and Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones showing up to augment another story of retired assassins going back into action.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them in the form of a beautiful mysterious woman in a downed spacecraft. In Joseph Kosinski‘s Oblivion, Tom Cruise and Andrea Riseborough play two members of a lonely crew mopping up what’s left of Earth decades after a devastating alien attack.

They’re nearing the end of their assignment when Julia (Olga Kurylenko) falls out of the sky, leading Jack (Cruise) to realize that not all is as it seems. And, naturally, that the fate of humanity rests in his hands. Watch the trailer after the jump.

If the first trailer for Joseph Kosinski‘s Oblivion made Tom Cruise look like a human Wall-E, the second turns him into a more typical sci-fi action hero. Not that that’s a bad thing. The new video offers a better idea of just why Jack is so intrigued by the mysterious woman (Olga Kurylenko) in the spacecraft, and what’s at stake when he decides to go against orders. Hit the jump to watch.
