In the age of Facebook, finding out which of your high school friends got fat, rich, and/or married is a simple matter of entering their name into a search bar. But an entire movie centered around people “liking” baby photos or approving friend requests isn’t likely to be very exciting, so in 10 Years a group of old friends decides to actually converge in the flesh for their high school reunion.
The film’s bound to draw some attention for its cast alone: Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Lynn Collins, Rosario Dawson, Kate Mara, Chris Pratt, Ari Graynor, Justin Long, Anthony Mackie, Ron Livingston, Aubrey Plaza, Oscar Isaac, Scott Porter, and Brian Geraghty all star. Watch the first trailer after the jump, and make sure you stick around for the adorably awkward old photos at the end.

Sarah Palin has become such a ubiquitous cultural figure at this point, it’s hard to believe it was just four years ago that John McCain pulled the then-relatively unknown pol into the spotlight by announcing her as his running mate for his 2008 presidential campaign. But as the 2012 race slowly heats up, now seems as good a time as any to think back to what happened the last time we as a nation chose a leader.
Directed by Emmy winner Jay Roach (Recount), HBO Films’ Game Change follows McCain (played by Ed Harris), Palin (Julianne Moore), and their unsuccessful bid for the White House. Whereas the first trailer focused more on McCain and his decision to name Palin as his potential VP, the new one centers around Palin and what happens to her after she agrees to board the campaign. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor are in talks to join Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in James Wan‘s upcoming thriller, formerly called The Conjuring. The film, which is now going by the working title Untitled Warren Files Project, centers around a husband and wife paranormal investigation team (Wilson and Farmiga) dealing with spirits in a Rhode Island farmhouse. Livingston and Taylor would play a couple that moves into the farmhouse with their children, and are terrorized by the supernatural beings who reside there. The story is inspired by the real-life tale of the Perron family and paranormal experts Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 1970s.
Livingston will next appear in HBO Films’ Game Change, which premieres March 10, and this summer’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Taylor co-stars in Paul Weitz’s Being Flynn, which opens March 2. The Conjuring is scheduled to enter production in North Carolina in March. [THR]
After the jump, Stephen Dorff goes down in ’80s Beirut, while Mark Webber and Chloë Sevigny get hitched.

The Tom Hanks company Playtone is putting together Game Change, in which Julianne Moore will play Sarah Palin under the direction of Jay Roach (Austin Powers). The film follows the 2008 Presidential election, and Ed Harris plays John McCain. Now Ron Livingston has been cast as Mark Wallace, senior advisor to the McCain-Palin ticket. In other words, he gets to play the guy who coached Sarah Palin for her debates, and so his scenes with Julianne Moore could be gold. And, no, this movie is not a comedy. At least, I don’t think it is. [Deadline]
Next up is casting for an action/revenge film called Recoil. These two casting announcements couldn’t be more different, but how great would it be to combine them into one film? Anyway, more Recoil news after the break. Read More »
Hot off the $125 million (and counting) success of Little Fockers, director Paul Weitz has chosen his next project and is just about ready to lock up his leading lady. Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress Tina Fey is in final talks to star in Admission, based on a novel by Jean Hanff Korelitz. The film, which is being put together by Universal from a script by Karen Croner, centers on an admissions officer at Princeton who develops a relationship with a student who is not quite Princeton material.
In addition, John Michael Higgins, the hilarious character actor best known for his roles in the Christopher Guest movies, has joined the already stellar cast for Cameron Crowe‘s We Bought a Zoo and Ron Livingston (Office Space, Swingers) has signed on to join Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton in Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green, about a couple who wishes for a child. Livingston will also be part of the ensemble high school reunion film Ten Year. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Paramount Pictures has released the second movie trailer for the Steve Carell/Paul Rudd comedy Dinner for Schmucks. The film, helmed by Jay Roach (the director of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents films), tells the story of a rising executive who “succeeds” in finding the perfect guest, an IRS employee, for his boss’s monthly event, a so-called “dinner for idiots,” which offers certain advantages to the exec who shows up with the biggest buffoon.
The film is a remake of the french comedy film Le Diner de Cons. The movie co-stars Ron Livingston, Bruce Greenwood, Jemaine Clement, Stephanie Szostak, Jeff Dunham, Rick Overton, and Zach Galifianakis. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On The Ropes, American Teen) makes her narrative feature film debut with the romantic comedy Going the Distance. The raunchy screenplay placed highly on the Black List, but it appears to have been tamed into a generic mainstream romcom starring Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Christina Applegate, Ron Livingston and Charlie Day.
An Academy Award nominated director that we’ve championed on /Film in the past…
… a screenplay voted one of the best unproduced scripts by industry insiders…
… and this is the trailer?
Really? Lets hope the movie has something better to offer.
