What sort of movie is Edgar Wright planning to make with Ant-Man, and who’ll he get to play the lead?
Coming from Wright, whose films all feature a mix of action and comedy, and given his fun and energetic demo reel for the character, it’s no surprise to see that there’s likely a real comic slant to the film. Or that’s the impression given by the current two-name shortlist for the lead role. The two names reportedly in real contention to play Ant-Man are Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who, realistically, seems to be in contention for many roles of this type) and Paul Rudd. Read More »

There are certain actors we’re happy to see in just about anything, and the newest film by Phil Morrison (Junebug) happens to feature three of them. All Is Bright stars Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd as Dennis and Rene, former partners in crime who reunite when Dennis gets out of jail.
Desperate to mend his relationship with his wife and child — who are now living with Rene — Dennis gets involved with Rene in a scheme to sell Christmas trees in New York. Sally Hawkins also stars, as one of their customers. Watch the trailer after the jump.

You probably already know this, but Ron Burgundy is kind of a big deal. If he wasn’t, would he be able to pull off a long leather overcoat with puffy fur collar?
San Diego’s most famous news anchor returns December 20 with Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The full cast of the 2004 original are back as Ron (Will Ferrell), Brick (Steve Carell), Champ (David Koechner) and Brian (Paul Rudd) are forced into the world of 24-hour news during the 1980s.

David Gordon Green goes back to super-low budget stories with Prince Avalanche, which features Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as two guys painting lines on a highway in Texas. The film got a great response at Sundance (regrettably, I missed it there and at SXSW) and will hit theaters in August courtesy of Magnolia. We’ve seen one teaser, but this full trailer explores a bit more of the combative friendship between the two guys at the center of the film. Read More »

When the first Anchorman hit theaters, we were smack in the middle of the ’00s. Lost and Veronica Mars had yet to hit the airwaves. The Janet Jackson Super Bowl controversy was still kind of a thing. John Kerry looked like a viable option for the presidency. It was a crazy time.
But times have changed for us since then, and so, too, have they for the Channel 4 news team. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues sees Ron (Will Ferrell), Brian (Paul Rudd), Champ (David Koechner) and Brick (Steve Carell) running headfirst into the ’80s and facing the new challenges that come it. Among those are diversity in the workplace (as represented by Meagan Good) and the 24-hour news cycle (as represented by Dylan Baker). Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Seventy years after its initial publication, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry‘s classic The Little Prince remains a favorite of readers both young and old. It was inevitable, then, that it’d be headed back to the big screen eventually. Fortunately for those who hold it dear, it sounds like there’ll be some serious talent on board to get it right.
Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) has been set to direct a new animated adaptation of the story, and it appears he’s starting to line up quite a voice cast. Jeff Bridges, James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Paul Rudd, and Mackenzie Foy (Breaking Dawn) are among the names attached. Get all the details after the jump.

Director Adam McKay promised “a murderers’ row of day players” for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, and based on the casting so far it definitely looks like he’s gonna deliver. But the faces we’re really excited to see are those of the core Channel 4 news team, and the new trailer offers a peek at just that.
There’s no new footage to be found here, but there are enough laughs to whet your appetite for comedy. Against a flashy backdrop just like the one from the last trailer, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner), and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) step up to say hello. And stay classy. And, uh, happy Easter. Check it out after the jump.

Though David Gordon Green broke out with quiet indie dramas like All the Real Girls, since 2008’s Pineapple Express he’s stuck mostly with studio comedy projects. But now he seems ready to transition back, with the indie Prince Avalanche as the first step. Funny but sweet, the film strikes a pleasing balance of both Green’s serious and goofy sides.
A remake of the Icelandic film Either Way, the film centers on two very different men, pensive Alvin (Paul Rudd) and his girlfriend’s dim brother Lance (Emile Hirsch), as they spend the summer together painting road lines in remote areas of Texas. Magnolia scooped it up shortly after its Sundance premiere in January and has now released a first trailer. Watch it after the jump.

With Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate in the lead roles, plus a slew of their famous friends in supporting and cameo parts, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy certainly had no shortage of big comic talents. But in typical sequel fashion, Anchorman: The Legend Continues plans to go even bigger with a veritable “murderer’s row of day players,” according to co-writer/director Adam McKay. Now, he seems to be making good on that promise as Kristen Wiig becomes the cast’s first fresh face.
