With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 hitting theaters this weekend, it’s a good time for studios to get their forthcoming movies in front of plenty of audiences, in the form of new trailers. So it should come as no surprise that Lionsgate’s sister company Summit Entertainment has a Now You See Me 2 trailer debuting this week, and they’ve got an ace in their pocket to make the magician heist sequel more appealing to the young adult audience: Harry Potter.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg didn’t quite get a chance to destroy Christmas last year thanks to the messy release of their film The Interview. Not that they’re still thinking about it or anything; it’s just one of the first cards that comes up in The Night Before red-band trailer.
This new Christmas comedy comes from director Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness) and features Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as three friends who are spending their last Christmas together before life takes them all on their own separate paths. Their party night turns crazy thanks to the intersection of drugs and (we’re just guessing based on this trailer) their own anxieties about impending life changes. It’s a very funny trailer, with a church scene featuring Rogen and Jillian Bell scoring the biggest comic hit. Watch below. Read More »

Now You See Me turned out to be a sleeper hit in the summer of 2013, so the Four Horsemen have reunited for Now You See Me 2. Well, three of the Four Horsemen are, anyway. Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, and Woody Harrelson are all back for the sequel, while Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher as the female lead.
Also not returning? Eisenberg’s unruly mop from the first film. In the first cast photo from Now You See Me 2, his hair is closely cropped — presumably because he’s just come off of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hit the jump for your Now You See Me 2 first look, also featuring Mark Ruffalo, Daniel Radcliffe, and Michael Caine.

Chances are, if you’re in the target audience for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview, you’re not the type to be easily offended by a bit of nudity and some salty language. Still, maybe you prefer to keep things tamer while you’re at the office. Or maybe you just want to save the wildest jokes for the movie itself. So Sony has released a new The Interview green band trailer, which manages to be pretty funny even without the NSFW stuff. Watch it after the jump.

There’s absolutely no need to touch Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction. Built around an Academy Award winning screenplay, the film is pretty much perfect from beginning to end. It teems with exquisite detail as performances and dialogue tell interweaving stories of crime and craziness. A reinforcement of that absolute brilliance was the main thing I took out of the latest Film Independent at LACMA Live Read, which took place February 20 in Los Angeles. Director Evan Goldberg (This is the End) subbed for Jason Reitman and assembled an eclectic, star-studded cast to read Tarantino’s masterwork. It was a two and a half hour celebration of Pulp Fiction‘s perfection.
While no one could ever replace the iconic cast of John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and so many others, stars like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Lizzie Caplan laughed, imitated and sometimes stumbled through the script with excitement and reverence. Along the way, a few Easter Eggs were uncovered, alternate interpretations attempted and much fun was had. Read about the live read below. Read More »

Into a TV landscape littered with antiheroic morality tales and Scandinavian crime dramas, Showtime is introducing something a little different with Masters of Sex.
Michael Sheen stars as William Masters, a real-life sex researcher whose pioneering work still serves as the basis for much of what we know about sex today. Lizzy Caplan stars as Virginia Johnson, his partner in science and, eventually, love. That cast alone is enough to get me to sit up and pay attention, but the first trailer also makes the show look like a hell of a lot of fun. Hit the jump to check it out.
Be warned that while the trailer is technically SFW — there’s no nudity or even cursing — there’s enough risqué material in here that perhaps you shouldn’t be watching it at work. Unless your office is as open-minded as Masters’, perhaps.
