Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are both going back to raunchy comedy under director Jake Kasdan. In Sex Tape, the couple make exactly what the title suggests. But it’s a heat of the moment thing, and in the morning they try to delete the video (recorded on an iPad) only to find that it has been uploaded to the cloud, and shared with all their friends and family. Maybe worry less here about the precise “how” of that process, and just focus on the fact that this is a weird R-rated comedy where product placement and tech paranoia collide like, well, a couple having sex.
And if you’ve wondered just what goes on in the sex tape the couple makes, this new Sex Tape red-band trailer gives up some details. (Spoiler: their checklist is ‘The Joy of Sex.’) Read More »

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 »

Bad Teacher 2 is happening, but the next team-up of director Jake Kasdan, and stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel won’t be a follow-up to that foul-mouthed comedy. Instead, the trio are reuniting for Sex Tape, an unrelated comedy about a married couple who decide to spice things up in the bedroom.
You can probably guess what one of their tricks is, just based on the title of the movie. Another seems to involve roller skates, as shown in this first still. Has someone been watching Boogie Nights? Hit the jump to check it out.

As we get close to the end of this year, studios are getting their schedules in order for the next couple of years. Disney gave new release dates to Star Wars Episode VII and Tomorrowland last week, right around the same time that Warner Bros. dated Live By Night and Jersey Boys, and Fox rescheduled Fantastic Four, Assassin’s Creed, and Independence Day 2 earlier this week.
Now it’s Sony’s turn to do some rearranging. The studio has announced new opening dates for three of its major upcoming releases: The Bad Teacher reunion Sex Tape, the supernatural horror Beware the Night, and the horror-comedy Kitchen Sink. Hit the jump for all the details.

Mark your calendars. Sony has just set a June 6, 2014 release date for 21 Jump Street 2, starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be back to direct the comedy sequel, which will see the undercover cops heading to college.
Sony also dated two other big summer movies for 2014. They already have The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opening on May 2 but they also dated Think Like A Man Too, the sequel to Tim Story comedy starring Kevin Hart, for June 20 and Sex Tape, Jake Kasdan‘s comedy starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple whose homemade video goes mainstream, for July 2. That last one is a huge vote of confidence for the comedy, as it’ll open on one of the busiest weekends of the year, opposite Disney’s Maleficent. Jump Street opens against the new Ninja Turtles.

Bad Teacher turned out to be a big smash hit for Sony, grossing over ten times its modest $20 million box office budget. Those are the kind of numbers that usually give rise to a sequel — and while there aren’t any plans right now to make one (or at least not yet), there is a reunion brewing for the trio at its center.
Cameron Diaz has entered early talks to re-team with her Bad Teacher director Jake Kasdan and co-star Jason Segel for Sex Tape, which is also being distributed by Sony. Diaz, along with several other actresses, was rumored for the lead a while back but now she’s inching closer to an actual deal. Hit the jump to keep reading.

I can hardly keep track of all the projects David O. Russell has been attached to or rumored for since his Oscar nomination for The Fighter, but here’s another one to add to the list. Recent reports claim that he’s signed on for Sony’s American Bullshit, a 2010 Black List script by Eric Warren Singer that Ben Affleck was eyeing earlier this year. The crime drama recounts the true tale of “Abscam,” a Congressional sting set up in 1980 by the FBI in an effort to eradicate corruption. The operation was masterminded by an individual described as “the world’s greatest con man.”
THR writes that Russell may or may not stick with the movie depending on who gets cast in the two lead roles; one rumor names Christian Bale as a potential star for the project. However, according to Deadline, Russell’s reps have flat-out denied that the filmmaker has anything to do with the picture at all. We’ll have to wait and see how this one pans out, but either way, it’s worth noting that Russell’s involvement is far from a sure thing at this point.
After the jump, Jake Kasdan gets sexy with Jason Segel.
