‘Five days ago, Emily went missing. I’m realizing I don’t know her as well as I thought I did,’ Mommy vlogger Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) – who is trying to find out what happened to her best friend (Blake Lively) in A Simple Favor.
I’m not sure exactly what elements of the trailer sparked the thought, but does it make the film seem very Hitchcockian.
A Simple Favor – directed by Paul Feig – opens on September 18th.
Freeform has order a pilot for Girls Code, an original women-in-the-workplace place comedy from Emmy®-nominated Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks, Bridesmaid).
The pilot sets up the odd couple partnership between a brazen, self-centered tech CEO and a community-building social entrepreneur who must overcome their many issues with each other in order to co-run a groundbreaking, all-female tech incubator.
After a couple of decent trailers that actually withheld most of the film’s funniest moments, Ghostbusters arrives with wit, charm, lovable goofiness, some serious melodrama and comes thisclose to being as good as the original.
The all-female Ghostbusters (and their dumber than a sack of flying mallets male receptionist) are worthy successors to Ivan Reitman’s original.
Both Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man put in appearances in the new trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, but the the really big deal is that we have to talk about Kevin – Chris Hemsworth steals this trailer!
Check it out after the jump. Ghostbusters opens on July 15th.
Melissa McCarthy has shown she can play a character (Saint Vincent, everyone!), which is why Spy is so much fun. In Susan Cooper, CIA super analyst she’s found a character – and a potential franchise – that she can really sink her teeth into.
Also, for a spoof to work it must also succeed in the genre it’s spoofing – and Spy works as a spy movie.
Quick! Name two things that Ellen DeGeneres does! Comedy and dancing, you say? Well, then you will love the first trailer for the 85th Annual Academy Awards. It’s fun and she’s dancing. Check it out after the jump.
The 85th Annual Academy Awards will be presented live on ABC on Sunday, March 2, 2014.
I think I laughed maybe twice over the course of the two trailers for Bridesmaids. Despite this, I decided that I would check out the film for a couple of reasons – the producing directing team of Judd Apatow and Paul Feig, and the combination of Kristen Wiig, Rose Byrne and Melissa McCarthy. It didn’t hurt that Wiig also co-wrote the film. The result is about 75% hilarious and 50% cringeworthy [there’s a 25% overlap…].
