Paul Feig’s A Simple Favor is inspired – from its Saul Bass-like question mark poster (above) to its double and triplecrosses – by the breezy sophisticated mystery-thrillers of the ‘60s and early ‘70s.
‘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.

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.
