It’s almost time for another holiday centric comedy from director Garry Marshall. However, this time the cast of Mother’s Day doesn’t seem quite as packed to the gills with celebrities as its predecessors Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve. Instead, it’s Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Britt Robertson, Sarah Chalke, Shay Mitchell, Jon Lovitz, Aasif Mandvi, Timothy Olyphant and Margo Martindale starring in the movie, which follows multiple interconnected storylines.
Now a new trailer introduces some characters we haven’t met before, including Mitchell (who debuted the trailer across her social media channels) as Olyphant’s new girlfriend — which doesn’t really sit well with his ex-wife, played by Aniston. Watch the new Mother’s Day trailer with your mom or significant other after the jump. Read More »

Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have a thing for real-life drama. The pair are just coming off of Lone Survivor, an account of a Navy SEAL mission to kill a Taliban leader, and are about to dive into Patriots Day, about the events leading up to and around the Boston Marathon bombing. In between, they have Deepwater Horizon, about one of the worst manmade disasters in history.
In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded near the coast of Louisiana, springing a leak that would flow for another 87 days (making it the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history). Of the 126 crew members on board at the time, 11 were killed and another 17 were injured. Berg’s film follows the courageous men and women who tried to prevent the disaster, and then, when the worst happened anyway, valiantly worked to save their colleagues. Watch the first Deepwater Horizon trailer below. Read More »
Less than a year after the disastrous BP Oil spill, a film based on the tragic event was already in the works. Back in 2014, director J.C. Chandor was attached to helm Deepwater Horizon. Unfortunately, the A Most Violent Year and Margin Call director walked away from the project, citing “creative differences.” Mark Wahlberg was already attached to the film at the time, and following Chandor’s departure, the actor might’ve had a hand in bringing aboard Lone Survivor director, Peter Berg, as his replacement.
Now the film is due out this fall, and today we have our first look. Below, check out a few Deepwater Horizon photos.

Apparently at some point in the past decade, Garry Marshall decided he could not rest until he’d turned every major holiday into a middling ensemble romcom. Having already put out Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, he’s now turned his attention to Mother’s Day. This one stars Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis as a loosely interconnected group of people with all kinds of mommy issues.

If seeing Jack Black bring a rather peculiar version of R.L. Stine to life in Goosebumps last month wasn’t your cup of tea, maybe you’ll be more pleased with his return to animation in Kung Fu Panda 3, arriving early next year.
A new Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer has just arrived, giving us more of Po (Black) being reunited with his estranged father (Bryan Cranston). As teased at the end of Kung Fu Panda 2, there’s a whole panda village waiting to meet Po, but the reunion isn’t all bamboo and laughs when a new evil threatens to obliterate them. Read More »
Normally voice casting for animated movies is done far in advance, mostly because sometimes the performance from each actor voicing the characters informs how the animators will bring the character to life. And because voice recording is done in advance, it’s a rarity to hear of someone being replaced with just under five months before the film’s release.
But that’s exactly what’s happening with Kung Fu Panda 3. Previously, Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was slated to voice a character named Mei Mei, a ribbon-dancing panda who is romantically obsessed with Po. However, Almost Famous star Kate Hudson has now been hired to replace her on the film. Read More »
After kicking around development hell for years, The Weinstein Company is finally getting a biopic about legendary comedian Richard Pryor off the ground, and the cast has been finalized for production to begin in March.

In addition, some of the primary supporting cast has been confirmed and expanded as Eddie Murphy also joins the Richard Pryor biopic. Read More »
