Justin Long and Cobie Smulders both have a likability that works well in romantic comedies. They can be naturally charismatic in movies, and that kind of charm can work wonders for a romantic comedy. Long and Smulders – which sounds like an insurance company – starring in a romantic comedy sounds appealing and we’ll soon see them in Literally, Right Before Adam, which might not qualify as a traditional rom-com. There’s comedy, yes, but the romance may be dead since it’s about Long’s character being invited to his ex-girlfriend’s (Smulders) wedding.
Below, watch the Literally Right Before Adam trailer.

Kidnapping is normally no laughing matter, but in co-writer/director Will Raee’s upcoming comedy Austin Found, he’s gathered a stellar cast that he hopes will make you forget about real-world problems for a while and just watch a bunch of idiots try to get away with a small-town crime. With names like Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), Craig Robinson (The Office), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), Matt Jones (Breaking Bad), Patrick Warburton (A Series of Unfortunate Events), and Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth) on board, chances are pretty good that you’ll at least crack a smile seeing their antics play out on screen.
Check out the first Austin Found trailer below.

In today’s edition of “Hey, do you want to feel old?”, we bring you the first trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, the big screen adaptation of author and illustrator Dav Pilkey‘s long-running children’s book series about a mean school principal hypnotized into thinking that he’s a superhero by two mischievous students. While the series began in the late ’90s, it’s a real staple for those who came of age in the ’00s…most of whom are now old enough to drive themselves to the theater for this movie.
You can check out the Captain Underpants trailer below.

If you’re a fan of the FOX animated series Bob’s Burgers, then you probably already know that this weekend marks its milestone 100th episode. If you’re not a fan of Bob’s Burgers, then you should probably watch it on Netflix or Hulu and join in the hilarity.
In case you didn’t know, just last month the cast of Bob’s Burgers got together for some recent live shows in Los Angeles that featured H. Jon Benjamin (Bob), John Roberts (Linda), Dan Mintz (Tina), Eugene Mirman (Gene), and Kristen Schaal (Louise) all doing stand-up, table reads and more in front of a live audience. Before the show began, a short film called Bob’s Burgers Live!: The Movie revealed how the cast was rounded up for the event, and it was a little more complicated and dramatic than you might anticipate.

Melissa McCarthy may not be returning for the Gilmore Girls revival, to the endless disappointment of Gilmore Girls fans, but don’t worry — she’s got plenty of other stuff to keep her busy in the coming months. Not only will she appear as one of the new fab four in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, she’s also starring in The Boss, which reunites her with her Tammy director (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone.
McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, a hotshot CEO whose extravagant lifestyle comes crashing down when she’s arrested for insider trading. She emerges from prison disgraced and discouraged, but finds an unlikely path back to the top in the form of Girl Scout cookies. Or rather, “Darnell’s Darlings Brownies.” Kristen Bell plays Michelle’s reluctant business partner, and Peter Dinklage shows up as… unclear, but the role involves him wielding a sword.

We all know that Hugh Jackman can’t be Wolverine in the X-Men franchise forever, and we’ve heard that the Australian actor is done with the role that made him a star after he completes a starring turn in the third Wolverine film in 2017. But don’t worry, because he’s also slated to pop up in X-Men: Apocalypse and may have a cameo in Deadpool.
Still, someone has to pick up the claws and replace Jackman eventually. So as part of his stream of Comic-Con themed episodes this week, being shot in San Diego, Conan revealed some of the auditions to play Wolverine with names like Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex,) Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), Patton Oswalt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and more in the running.

It’s not quite “Grumpy Old Men on the Appalachian Trail,” but A Walk in the Woods mines the memoir by Bill Bryson for the story of two old guys, played by Robert Redford and Nick Nolte, as reconnected friends of old who take to the two-thousand mile trail. The adventure is an excuse for some light, genial comedy as the two struggle through nature, and a few great comic actors, such as Kristen Schaal and Nick Offerman even show up to lend a hand once in a while. You’ll see it all on display in this A Walk in the Woods trailer. Read More »
