There comes a time in every person’s life when they finally have to pick up and move away from home. Some do it as soon as possible. Others, like the title character in the Duplass Brothers’ comedy Jeff, Who Lives At Home, take a little longer. Or, make that a lot longer. Paramount has provided /Film with and exclusive clip from the film, starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Susan Sarandon and Judy Greer, that shows just that moment in Jeff’s life. The moment that changes everything. The film opens March 16. Check out the clip below. Read More »

Jay and Mark Duplass are following up their film Cyrus with Jeff Who Lives at Home, starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Judy Greer, and Susan Sarandon. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September, where it was called “a lovely, nicely paced and completely heartfelt look at a complicated relationship between brothers” (CinemaBlend) and the best film yet from the Duplass brothers, which “doesn’t suddenly break your heart, but, rather, it suddenly heals it — with a moment of such delicacy and sincerity that you feel lucky to witness it.” (The Playlist)
Jeff Who Lives at Home will open limited on March 16. The trailer for the film premieres tomorrow on Apple. In the meantime, check out the new poster below. Read More »
If you don’t catch Jeff Who Lives At Home, the next comedy by the Jay and Mark Duplass (Cyrus, Baghead), at the Toronto Film Festival in September, you’re going to have to wait until next year to see it. The film, which stars Jason Segel as a man who unravels the mysteries of the universe while running an errand for his mother, has been given a March 2, 2012 release date by distributor Paramount Vantage. Produced by Jason Reitman among others, Jeff Who Lives At Home also stars Judy Greer, Ed Helms, Susan Sarnadon and Rae Dawn Chong. You can see more photos from the film here. Thanks to THR.
If you’re more interested in the typical fall slate of festival entrees than summer’s glut of tentpole action fare, this is a great week. The Toronto International Film Festival announced the first wave of films that will play the fest in September. This is a batch of about 50 titles, which makes up only a small chunk of the programming. Usually TIFF features between two and three hundred films. But these are some of the highest-profile entries.
Below you’ll find rundowns on the new films from George Clooney, Bennett Miller, Jay & Mark Duplass, Todd Solondz, Francis Ford Coppola, Cameron Crowe, Sarah Polley, Fernando Meirelles, Lars von Trier, Marc Forster, Steve McQueen, Alexander Payne, and Lynne Ramsay. No announcement yet of the Midnight Madness programming choices, always some of my faves, but this is a great start. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
A while back, we took a look at some of the projects that Jason Reitman might direct following Up in The Air. One of the projects was a screenplay written by The Duplass Brothers — Jay and Mark Duplass, who broke onto the scene as part of the indie mumblecore movement (The Puffy Chair, Baghead…etc). It turns out that the Duplass brothers were not working on a screenplay for Reitman to direct, but instead produce.
