This weekend marks the opening of San Andreas, in which Dwayne Johnson deals with the largest earthquake ever recorded in history. But if you’d like to enjoy his charm without the specter of catastrophic disaster, you can keep an eye out for next month’s Ballers.
Johnson leads the HBO comedy as Spencer, a former football player turned financial advisor. Which might sound like a less exciting career, except that he’s serving as a financial advisor to professional athletes, so he still gets to party it up with the best of them. Watch the latest Ballers trailer after the jump. Read More »

Were you too scared to click on the red-band Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer from July? Well, a green band trailer is now here and you can finally see what’s in store for the good friends who find a time machine.
This time around, the characters played by Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry misuse their amazing toy and decide to go back into the past to fix the problems they create. They mistakenly end up in the future, though, alongside the son of the character played by John Cusack in the first film (Cusack isn’t back here), played by Adam Scott. Now they have to worry not only about the past, but the present, which is also the past in the future. Then it gets even crazier than that.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 opens February 20 and you can watch the new trailer and see the new poster below. Read More »
I love Michael Bay. I unironicly think he is a great artist. And from everything I’ve read, heard and even personally seen, I think he’s a hilarious person. He’s almost like an exagerated cartoon character version of what you might expect. Sometimes I think he plays into the persona, that his behavior can be an act.
For instance, when I was on the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Bay filmed a huge explosive action sequence as uninvited onlookers watched from nearby buildings and parking garages. They applauded after the take and Bay addressed the crowd with his megaphone: “You guys think you’re going to wait up there and be in my movie? You’re gonna get digitally erased!” Was he joking?
Actor Rob Corddry has spent way more time with the filmmaker than I have at various junkets and set visits, and decided to compile a list of funny and crazy Michael Bay quotes during the filmmaking of Pain & Gain. Read that list and more after the jump.

In Sex Tape, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a couple desperately trying to keep their racy video from being seen by anyone. But Sony, of course, wants just the opposite for the film itself. So the studio has put out a new Sex Tape green-band trailer, all the better to appeal to those who couldn’t see that last red-band trailer.
The new edit swaps out some of the sex scenes and F-bombs, replacing them with tamer bits of new footage. It retains the same general structure and ribald sense of humor, though. Watch it after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In Sex Tape, director Jake Kasdan and his Bad Teacher stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel offer up the comedic tale of a couple that has lost their spark. To put a little fire back into their lives, the couple makes a sex tape… which they promptly lose control of, thanks to the cloud. (Oh, that prankster, the cloud!) Is this basically a feature-length update of one joke from Trainspotting? Maybe so, but it’s also a chance for a skinny Segal and Diaz to curse and yell at one another, and pretend to have sex. Check out the Sex Tape red-band trailer below. Read More »

R-rated jokes can be a good tool for a comedy filmmaker to have in their arsenal. There are some gags that simply don’t work when they’re toned down to satisfy the MPAA. But that doesn’t mean ruder, cruder, and lewder necessarily translates to funnier. A limp comedy is still a limp comedy, no matter how many bare butts, dick jokes, and blood splatters you toss in there.
Case in point: Last month’s green-band trailer for Hell Baby was pretty hit-or-miss, to put it generously, and I’m not sure that ratio’s much improved in this new red-band trailer. More boobs are on display, though, so there’s that. Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant direct, and Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Riki Lindhome, and Keegan-Michael Key star. Hit the jump to watch the NSFW video.
