With Netflix releasing over 700 new original movies and TV programs throughout 2018, they’ve got tons of stuff to unveil every week. Later this month, we’ll be getting a new comedy by the gang from Comedy Central’s series Workaholics.
Game Over, Man! is a new action comedy starring Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson as waiters at an high-rise hotel who get caught up in dangerous sitaution when terrorist busts into an upscale party, takes hostages and demands a hefty sum of money for them to be rescued. It’s up to these three hotel employees to save the day, and as the new Netflix Game Over Man trailer shows, they’re not exactly a trio of John McClanes. Read More »
Plenty of movies take a cue from Groundhog Day and feature a character who gets stuck in some kind of inexplicable time loop. Edge of Tomorrow, Source Code, Run Lola Run, and most recently Happy Death Day have all used the time loop formula to tell a story, and now it’s time for a new romantic comedy to give it a shot.
Netflix has announced a new movie called When We First Met, which finds Adam Devine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect) as a guy named Noah who stumbles upon a photo booth time machine that allows him to go back in time in an effort to win over the heart of his best friend Avery (Alexandra Daddario), who is getting married to someone else. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »
Workaholics, the quintessential Comedy Central slacker comedy that helped to launch the careers of Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson, went off the air last year, but its creator-stars will grace our screens once again in a hilariously dumb Netflix action-comedy.
In Game Over, Man! Devine, Holm, and Anderson team up once again — but instead of getting into office-related shenanigans, they’re pitted against bonafide terrorists who threaten a hotel full of hostages, their potential video game benefactor, and worst of all, Jamaican-American musician Shaggy.

Over in New York City, production has begun on Isn’t It Romantic, a new romantic comedy starring Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine, Liam Hemsworth and Pryianka Chopra. The film is directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (pictured above on set with Rebel Wilson), who brought us the horror comedy The Final Girls, and he’s bringing some of the same meta cinematic style to the table.
Isn’t It Romantic follows Rebel Wilson as Natalie, a New York City architect who works hard to get noticed at her job, but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. Her love life isn’t faring any better as a lifelong relationship cynic, but when an encounter with a mugger knocks her out cold, she wakes up to discover that she’s stuck in the kind of romantic comedy that she hates, and she’s the leading lady.
We asked Todd Strauss-Schulson to tell us why he was drawn to Isn’t It Romantic and why audiences should be excited to see the movie which sounds like a romantic comedy version of The Final Girls. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
In today’s edition of “casting news pieces that aren’t quite big enough to get their own story but are certainly more interesting when lumped together”:

This summer has already gotten a big dose of comedy with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, a refreshing comedy sequel that mixes things up just enough to be on par with the hilarity of the first film. Plus, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping will deliver some huge laughs as the This Is Spinal Tap for the next generation. But there’s still more R-rated comedy in store later this summer.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates brings Neighbors star Zac Efron and Pitch Perfect Treblemaker Adam DeVine together as a couple of wild party guys who try to find some nice, polite girls in order to tone things down for their sister’s wedding. But what they get instead are Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, their female equals in every way, pretending to play it sweet for a free trip to Hawaii.
The most recent red band trailer just debuted last week, and now Efron and DeVine have come together to read a “children’s book” about brothers, because it’s the made-up holiday of Brother’s Day. Watch the Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Brothers Day video below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Earlier today we saw the trailer for the Adam DeVine and Zac Efron summer comedy, Mike and David Need Wedding Dates. The trailer fell a bit flat, which is a shame, considering the actors involved, and the fact that it’s DeVine’s first starring role in a big summer comedy. The Workaholics star has appeared in some fun supporting roles over the years, but Mike and David Need Wedding Dates could potentially lead to him starring in more comedies.
Any fan of DeVine’s should be happy to learn that he’s already lined up another starring role for himself. The actor will reunite with The Final Girls director, Todd Strauss-Schulson, for Paternity Leave. Learn more about the project below.

The last time Aubrey Plaza and Zac Efron got crazy together, it was with Robert De Niro in the dreadful Dirty Grandpa. However, in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, they have Workaholics star Adam DeVine and Pitch Perfect leading lady Anna Kendrick to help out. Plus, it helps that the script comes from Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, the scribes behind the hit comedy Neighbors and the sequel coming this summer.
A new Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates red band trailer has arrived, featuring Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza scamming the hell out of our title characters, who are desperate for some respectable ladies for their sister’s wedding. This actually doesn’t look half bad. Watch the new trailer below. Read More »
