Three buddies who have celebrated Christmas Eve together since 2001 set out to make their final leg of the tradition in style – a good trick since they have none. It’s like a grand quest featuring the Three Stooges, only with the humor coming from emotional/existential pain.
The Night Before is the new movie ‘from the guys who almost brought you The Interview’ – at least that’s what it says in the trailer.
Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have hung out every Christmas Eve since Ethan’s mother died on that night fourteen years ago. Now, with Isaac about to become a dad and Chris, an NFL star who’s just to famous to be hangin’ with them anymore, the three set out to have the maddest Christmas Eve ever before they end their tradition.
The Night Before’s first trailer is a red band one and very NSFW. It opens on November 25th.
It looks like we’re getting the warts-and-all Steve Jobs biopic that we didn’t get last time – courtesy of writer Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle.
Starring Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Kate Winselt and Jeff Daniels, Steve Jobs is a look behind the scenes at three iconic moments in Jobs’ career – and pivotal launches in Apple’s history.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Steve Jobs enters on October 9th.
Danny Boyle has made films in a wide variety of genres. With Steve Jobs, he tackles biography with his usual sense of style and panache – and a cast that is close to sublime (Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daneils). Check out the first trailer for Steve Jobs following the jump.
Steve Jobs will be in theaters on October 9th.
Well, I’ve finally seen The Interview and, let me just tell you, it’s a pretty decent little comedy. Cause for international furor? Not really. More like a modern Rat Pack kind of thing where a bunch of guys get together and make a movie for the hell of it.
Back in 1978, National Lampoon’s Animal House introduced the crude-with-a-heart frat house comedy. Since then no one has done it better, but with Neighbors, there’s a new wrinkle that comes very, very close: college fraternity versus the previous generation. It features – among other things – career performances from Seth Rogan, Rose Byrne and Zac Efron.
This is the End is loud, obnoxious, crude, lewd, profane and brilliant! I haven’t laughed this hard since Superbad.
The Guilt Trip is a decent road trip movie featuring Barbra Streisand as Joyce, the Jewish mother taken to the nth degree, and Seth Rogen as Andy, her far too grounded, no-risk-taker of a son.
50/50 mixes comedy and cancer, but it’s the drama that will win you over.
Paul is an affectionate parody of all things geek – comics, skiffy [which is how you pronounce sci-fi if you’ve been reading it forever] and pop culture. Two British nerds/geeks have an alien encounter as they tour America’s UFO hot spots and weirdness – and hilarity – ensue.
I like to start my reviews off by getting my bias out in the open. The Green Hornet is a film I walked into not inclined to like because of two elements – I strongly dislike Seth Rogen and I hate 3D movies. With that said, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked The Green Hornet. It’s not a movie that I loved by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s a fun, competent movie that is almost ruined by the pointless addition of 3D. The movie works largely because Rogen comes is very natural and not over the top as Britt Reid. He’s a likeable guy who desperately wants to do good: but he ‘s also kind of a lazy hero.
