The rom-com is back in full force! Kind of. The long-slumbering genre is still just getting back on its feet thanks to a few runaway hits in theaters and Netflix, but already Hollywood is ready to make fun of it. Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth star in Isn’t It Romantic, the meta-comedy directed by Todd Strauss Schulson, the guy behind 2015’s surprising horror takedown Final Girls. See the Isn’t It Romantic trailer below.

Disney’s live-action adaptation of its animated classic Beauty and the Beast was a huge hit last year, but it didn’t satisfy all the fans out there. Some were particularly disappointed with the obviously enhanced vocal work of Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson when singing as the charming, sharp, bookworm villager Belle. But they might be more satisfied with the latest casting of Belle in an upcoming Beauty and the Beast live concert production coming to The Hollywood Bowl this spring.
Following previous live concert renditions of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the Beauty and the Beast live concert features an all-star cast that will be led by (500) Days of Summer and New Girl star Zooey Deschanel. And if that wasn’t intriguing enough, the rest of the cast features an interesting assembly of talent as well. Read More »

This weekend brings Pitch Perfect 3 to theaters, offering a different kind of musical opposite Hugh Jackman’s circus extravaganza in The Greatest Showman. So just in case you haven’t seen the first two installments of the a capella franchise, Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Chrissie Fit, Hana Mae Lee, and Ester Dean took the time to run through both Pitch Perfect movies in under seven minutes. It’s not as fun musically, but it’s a good way to catch up for anyone who has a friend dragging them to the final performance of the Bellas.
Watch the Pitch Perfect recap below. Read More »
The marketing for Pitch Perfect 3 is referring to this as “last call,” so there’s a chance that this truly is the final time audiences will be able to hang out with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and the rest of the Bellas. And while this new trailer for the sequel promises a film that’s just as enjoyable as the first two, it might actually be a good idea for this franchise to go out on top after the curtain falls here, because it seems like it’s reached its natural conclusion.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Over in New York City, production has begun on Isn’t It Romantic, a new romantic comedy starring Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine, Liam Hemsworth and Pryianka Chopra. The film is directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (pictured above on set with Rebel Wilson), who brought us the horror comedy The Final Girls, and he’s bringing some of the same meta cinematic style to the table.
Isn’t It Romantic follows Rebel Wilson as Natalie, a New York City architect who works hard to get noticed at her job, but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. Her love life isn’t faring any better as a lifelong relationship cynic, but when an encounter with a mugger knocks her out cold, she wakes up to discover that she’s stuck in the kind of romantic comedy that she hates, and she’s the leading lady.
We asked Todd Strauss-Schulson to tell us why he was drawn to Isn’t It Romantic and why audiences should be excited to see the movie which sounds like a romantic comedy version of The Final Girls. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
Are all you pitches ready for one last round with the Bellas?
The first Pitch Perfect 3 trailer arrived online this weekend, giving us a much better idea of what the a capella group featuring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp and more are up to for what appears to be their third and final outing together. All of the Bellas have graduated college now (well, almost all), and they’re having some trouble getting jobs and staying motivated.
Desperate for some semblance of purpose, the Bellas decide to get together for an overseas USO tour that apparently also doubles as some kind of competition. But this is the first time the Bellas will be facing musical groups who don’t just make music with their mouths. So how is that going to turn out? Watch the Pitch Perfect 3 trailer below to find out.
