Fundamentals of Caring Review

Note: With The Fundamentals of Caring out this weekend, we’re re-running our review from the Sundance Film Festival.

Often times at Sundance you see the same stories played out with different characters. This year alone, for example, there are two movies about an estranged New York man returning home when his mother comes down with a debilitating ailment. Familiar indie stories don’t always work on the festival circuit, but sometimes when the right cast comes together, a decent amount of magic happens. Such is the case with The Fundamentals of Caring, a road trip comedy with heart based on Jonathan Evison‘s bestselling novel of nearly the same name and starring British sensation Craig Roberts (Submarine) and the always reliable Paul Rudd.

The Fundamentals of Caring Trailer

There’s not much in the vein of comedy coming to theaters this weekend, with Independence Day: Resurgence, Free State of Jones and The Shallows all making their box office debuts. But if you’re looking for laughs and you don’t feel the need to see Central Intelligence (though it’s a solid comedy thanks to Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart’s chemistry), then Netflix has you covered.

This Friday, Netflix brings the Sundance indie The Fundamentals of Caring to their streaming service, giving you another dose of Paul Rudd this summer. And this time he’s joined by Neighbors and Submarine star Craig Roberts for a funny, touching and charming road trip that’s absolutely worth your time.

Sausage Party TV Spot

In about a month, we’ll all be chomping down on some tasty cookout food when Independence Day rolls around in July. Thankfully, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s animated comedy Sausage Party isn’t hitting theaters before that to dissuade us from murdering all the food we eat.

A new Sausage Party TV spot has a bunch of new footage from the animated movie that imagines a world where humans don’t know that food is alive. Foods like hot dogs, carrots, bananas, peanut butter and anything you can think of come to life just like the toys in Toy Story. But in Sausage Party, rather than being cherished by humans, they’re viciously prepared, cooked and eaten, which comes as a big shock to the innocent food that usually celebrates being bought in the grocery store.

The Fundamentals of Caring Trailer

If Captain America: Civil War didn’t give you enough Paul Rudd for the summer, Netflix has the remedy. The streaming service picked up the indie comedy The Fundamentals of Caring from the Sundance Film Festival, and now it’s debuting exclusively on Netflix next weekend.

Paul Rudd stars in the adaptation of Jonathan Evison’s novel The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving as a man coming to terms with his divorce and looking to have some kind of value and purpose in life. Enlisting in a new job as a caregiver for those who can’t take care of himself, Rudd ends up being assigned to a sarcastic, vulgar 18-year old boy (Craig Roberts), and of course they have plenty to learn from each other. The Fundamentals of Caring trailer has just arrived online, and you can watch it below. Read More »

Sausage Party Trailer

In addition to bringing some comedy to summer this weekend with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, we’ll get more of Seth Rogen to close out the summer later this year with his raunchy animated adventure Sausage Party. The film is basically an R-rated Pixar movie following a group of friends who just so happen to be foods in a grocery store. Their lot in life is to be chosen by people and taken home in a glorious manner. But then they learn what people really do with food when they get it home, and that’s when all hell breaks loose.

A new Sausage Party trailer has arrived, and it’s basically the green band version of the red band trailer that was released a little while back. However, there are some new laughs to be had, especially at the end. Watch the new Sausage Party trailer after the jump. Read More »

Black Widow in Captain America Civil War

The first cut of Captain America: Civil War was two hours and forty-one minutes long. The final cut is 13 minutes shorter, so don’t expect to see too many deleted scenes on the Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo cut a few minor sequences, but nothing major was tossed aside in the editing room.

Below, find out about two scenes cut — both in the writing process and in post-production — from Captain America: Civil War (minor spoilers ahead).

Paul Rudd in Ant-Man

In just a few days we’ll see Paul Rudd back in his superhero suit for Captain America: Civil War, but it looks like he’s headed for a big change of pace beyond that. He’s just signed on to star in The Catcher Was a Spy, based on the true story of a Major League Baseball player who became a spy for the OSS (a precursor for the CIA). Ben Lewin (The Sessions) will direct from a script by Saving Private Ryan writer Robert RodatRead More »

Captain America Civiil War Clip

In just a couple days, fans in 25 major cities around the United States will be seeing Captain America: Civil War, so we’ll be getting more than the initial positive reaction from critics and press that came last weekend. But if you’re not among the lucky fans heading to one of those screenings, you’ve got a few weeks to wait, and Jimmy Kimmel Live just might have the goods to hold you over this week.

Marvel is invading the late night talk show all week, and they started by having Team Captain America stop by the show last night. Along with all the fun that was had with Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie and Paul Rudd, a new Captain America Civil War clip debuted where Ant-Man (Rudd) meets Captain America (Evans) and is a little bit starstruck. It’s one of the clips we saw at D23 last year.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

We’re trying to tread carefully while writing about Captain America: Civil War. There’s plenty of story in the Marvel project that the trailers and TV spots have yet to spoil. If you’re excited for the film and want to know absolutely nothing else about the story until it hits theaters, then be careful what you read over the next few weeks.

While there aren’t any massive spoilers ahead, since this part of Captain America: Civil War has sadly already been revealed in various toys on shelves now, we do discuss a great action moment that you might want to wait and see for yourself. Read Feige’s comments on the film and Ant-Man and the Wasp at your own discretion.
