Zach Galifianakis seems like a smart guy. Most of the characters he plays in the movies do not. So when he stars in a movie called Masterminds, you can probably guess that the title is being a bit sarcastic.
Directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), Masterminds is an action-comedy based on the true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo heist. Galifianakis’ David Ghantt makes off with $17 million, making this the largest cash robbery in the U.S. at the time.
Now his challenge is trying to get away with it — and that task seems easier said than done once you see his motley crew of associates including Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, and Jason Sudeikis. Check out the first Masterminds trailer after the jump.

Today at Valentino’s show in Paris for Paris Fashion Week, a Zoolander reunion took place when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked the runway in character as their Zoolander alter-egos Derek Zoolander and Hansel. That instantly led to questions about whether or not this was the first part of an official Zoolander 2 announcement, and in fact it was. Paramount has announced the movie for a 2016 release; you can get that date and see some Instagram evidence of the runway presence below.
Update: Watch the full runway appearance below. Read More »
The Weinstein Company have released the trailer for their international thriller No Escape. No, this isn’t the big screen adaptation of Dan Trachtenberg’s Portal: No Escape you’ve been hoping for… The story follows Owen Wilson‘s family who move to Southeast Asia to suddenly find themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, and must escape as rebels attack the city. The story sounds like a grounded character thriller but the trailer focuses on big moments of action you might not expect from that logline. The film is from Quarantine/Devil director John Erick Dowdle, and co-stars Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell. Watch the No Escape trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

For the first time since 2001, we have a new Peter Bogdanovich film arriving this year. She’s Funny That Way (formerly titled Squirrels to the Nuts, a reference to Ernst Lubitsch’s Cluny Brown) stars Owen Wilson as Arnold, a theater director who gets involved with an escort and aspiring actress (Imogen Poots) whose therapist (Jennifer Aniston) is dating his playwright (Will Forte) — who, in turn, begins to fall for the escort.
Meanwhile, Arnold tries to duck the wrath of his wife (Kathryn Hahn), who’s also his star, along with her ex (Rhys Ifans). Lucy Punch is somehow involved as well. It’s a lot to keep track of, so see if you can keep up with the She’s Funny That Way trailer after the jump. Read More »

Did the swift arrival of the end of the short 2014 season of Mad Men get you down? (Yeah, yeah, “mid-season break,” whatever. We still have yo wait a year for it to finish.) Well, now the show’s creator has something new for you to check out. Once called You Are Here, the first feature film from Sopranos writer and Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is now called Are You Here. The comedy, which stars Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, and Amy Poehler, hits in August, and the first Are You Here trailer has arrived. Read More »
We just saw a new poster for The Grand Budapest Hotel, from Wes Anderson, and that image featured portraits of the individuals in the huge ensemble cast. Now there’s a new trailer, and it is all about introducing the characters played by the whole bunch.
Along the way, we get a better outline of how the film fits together, starting from the point where F. Murray Abraham, seemingly as an older version of the young Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), narrates his story to the young writer played by Jude Law. There’s so much here: Harvey Keitel’s prison tattoos, Jeff Goldblum channeling J.K. Simmons’ character from Burn After Reading, and Tilda Swinton swaddled in old-age makeup, for starters.
It looks like a screwy comedy, with everyone having a hell of a time, but there are shadows of more serious events here, too. And, for everything that’s in this trailer, it doesn’t seem to give too much away. Read More »
Any “most anticipated of 2014″ lists we run here will likely feature Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel, which opens in March of next year. Anticipation comes not just based on the fact of a new Anderson movie, but the ensemble cast that always comes with such an endeavor.
This time, it’s Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, and Saoirse Ronan, for starters, who will wear the meticulously designed, Anderson-approved costumes. You can see them all in a new poster below, in advance of a new trailer tomorrow (Thursday, Dec 19). Read More »
