The true story starring Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell was originally scheduled for release last December, but was delayed. Now Sony Pictures Classic and Annapurna have set the film for a November 14 release following a world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Read More »

As audience members, we’re encouraged to laugh as long and as loud as we can at Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But as the stars of the show, Will Ferrell and company were obligated to maintain a straight face. Which isn’t always easy when the scenes are this hilarious.
A recently released reel of Anchorman 2 bloopers show the stars screwing up and screwing around on set — riffing on specialty condom brands, bursting into giggles at the phase “frothy ejaculate,” or nearly tearing up with laughter during an awkward romantic scene. Even Brian Fantana’s famous kittens get in on the non-camera-ready action, adorably attacking each other instead of their toys. Watch the video after the jump.

Anchorman 2 hit theaters at the end of last year, and it will soon be back in cinemas in a completely different cut assembled from alternate takes. But that’s not the end of the Anchorman 2 variant offerings: the Blu-ray release will feature three versions of the film. In addition to the original theatrical release and the second cut coming soon, the disc features an unrated version of the film. There will also be hours of bonus footage, including a reported 90 minutes of additional alternate takes. So that’s nearly four versions of Anchorman 2, which means that at least one poor editor probably lost his mind trying to make sense of it all.
The blu specs are after the break. Read More »

Everyone knows Louis C.K. as a brilliant comedian. Fewer people know him as a talented director. C.K. had been in the entertainment industry for decades before finally hitting the mainstream with his amazing stand-up and his FX TV show Louie. He wrote on several popular TV shows and directed short films for a long time, culminating in the 2001 cult film Pootie Tang.
In 1998 C.K. wrote and directed his first film called Tomorrow Night, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. It starred then-newcomers Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes and many others, but didn’t get picked up for distribution. This February, C.K. is finally going to release the film on his official website, for $5. Read more and check out the trailer below. Read More »

We’re having a pretty good day, thanks in part to Disney’s decision to drop the first official Guardians of the Galaxy still after months of anticipation. But if you aren’t, maybe the studio’s other big reveal will be more your speed.
Disney has just debuted a new image from Miguel Arteta‘s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, based on the classic children’s book by Judith Viorst. Though Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) is the only title character, the awfulness of his day does not seem to be limited to him. The rest of the family, which includes Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner, doesn’t look too happy either. Check out the photo after the jump.

It seems like every few months, there’s a new article about how movie stardom just isn’t what it used to be, and how even the biggest names can no longer guarantee a box office smash. Nevertheless, the world’s most popular actors continue to get paid a lot, and not all of them actually make those hefty paychecks worth it.
According to Forbes, the worst value in Hollywood right now is Adam Sandler, whose Jack & Jill and That’s My Boy tanked horribly. He’s followed closely by Katherine Heigl and Reese Witherspoon, and at more of a distance by his pal Kevin James. Find out who the next six are after the jump.

Two brand new trailers, full of new footage, characters and hilarious jokes have just been released for Adam McKay‘s highly anticipated sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The domestic trailer is funny – more Ron, more Champ, more Brick, more Brian, more absolute insanity in the world of 24 hour news, but the international trailer is brilliant, giving a much better sense of what the story is.
The films opens Christmas Day. Check out the two new trailers below.
We took our first peek at some footage from Bennett Miller‘s Foxcatcher yesterday, but it may be some time yet before we get to see the rest of it. Sony Pictures Classic has just delayed the fact-based drama to 2014, pulling it out of contention for the upcoming Oscar race. Hit the jump to find out why.
