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.

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.

A hopeful, pregnant couple moving into a decrepit old house: that never turns out well in the movies. In Hell Baby, though, filmmakers Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant try to have a little fun on the way to the inevitable doom that follows such a bad life choice.
Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb star as the married pair, who are expecting twins. They purchase a suspiciously cheap mansion in New Orleans, only to discover that it’s — surprise, surprise — haunted. The Vatican dispatches its crack exorcism team (played by Garant and Lennon) to help. Hilarity ostensibly ensues. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
From the instant In A World… premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, I remember thinking, “I can’t wait to see the trailer for that.” That day is here. Written, directed by and starring Lake Bell, In A World… is the story of young woman trying to make a living in the male-dominated field of voice over work, specifically that of movie trailers. When marketers for a new movie decide to reinstate the classic phrase “In a world” for the film’s trailer, a competition breaks out that pits the young woman against her father (Fred Melamed) and an up and comer (Ken Marino).
Featuring supporting performances by Dimitri Martin, Michaela Watkins, Rob Corddry, Nick Offerman and Geena Davis, the film won the Best Screenwriting award at Sundance. It opens on August 9. Check out meta-trailer below. Read More »
