Greta Gerwig is on fire right now (not literally, thank heavens). The writer-actress-director’s new film Lady Bird has garnered some of the best reviews of the year, and might be a serious contender come awards season. Gerwig’s coming-of-age drama is set in the early ’00s, and as such, she wanted to fill the film with those sweet jams that you heard incessantly on the radio back in the day. To land the music license rights to certain songs, Gerwig emailed several artists, and the letters are just delightful. Read the Greta Gerwig Lady Bird letters below.

Sony has released the first movie trailer for the new Adam Sandler comedy Just Go With It. Directed by Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Happy Gilmore), the valentine’s week romantic comedy release tells the story of “a plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant’s kids become involved, and everyone heads off for a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives.” The film co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, Brooklyn Decker, Dave Matthews, Nick Swardson, and Kevin Nealon.
It seems like a by the numbers generic romcom, but someone on the IMDB forums claims to have seen a press screening and gave it a possitive review:
thought it was quirky and fun and endearing. The chemistry was good between the characters and the location shoots in Hawaii were beautiful. Sandler and Anniston were good together and the suppoorting cast and quirky cameos of other characters brought some huge laughs.
Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
