The 2011 Movies That We’re Already Excited About

There’s been a lot of talk about how 2010 has been an awful year for film. In fact earlier this year in the Wall Street Journal, novelist and screenwriter Joe Queenan dubbed it the worst movie year ever. While we don’t necessary agree (just look at The King’s Speech, Toy Story 3, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The Social Network, and Black Swan), we do know that the upcoming year looks even more promising. After the jump check out ten of the films that already have us excited for 2011, and be sure to add anything that we’ve missed in the comments. … Read More

Rate-a-Trailer: Gulliver’s Travels

There’s something that’s off in the trailer for Rob Letterman‘s (Monsters vs Aliens) new Jack Black comedy Gulliver’s Travels. Maybe it’s the unbelievable storyline: Black plays a mailroom clerk who gets demoted by some kid, and then plagiarizes his way into a travel writing assignment that sends him to the Bermuda Triangle. Maybe it’s the weird romantic plot: Amanda Peet + Jack Black does not compute. Maybe it’s the fact that Hollywood has taken Jonathan Swift’s hidden island of Lilliput and turned it into a full on bro-fest, complete with fist bumps and Foosball tables. (In fact, if he saw this, he’d probably want to eat Letterman and turn his skin into ladies gloves.) Maybe it’s our frustration that the fantastic Emily Blunt doesn’t event get to speak! Or maybe we’re just bitter because this is yet another movie that’s coming out in 3D, and that’s $20 we weren’t looking to spend. … Read More

Rate-a-Trailer: Despicable Me

We hadn’t heard much about Despicable Me before now, mostly that it has an amazing voice cast (read: Steve Carell, Will Arnett, Jason Segel, Kristen Wiig, Danny McBride, Russell Brand, and Julie Andrews), but Universal has just put out the first trailer; an unusually-long-as-first-trailers-go 2 and a half minute scene.… Read More

“Apatow World” Looks Like Real Life, No?

OK. Let me preface this by saying that I love most of Judd Apatow’s movies. So maybe I’m a bit biased about the video that awaits you after the jump. The idea is cute: Streeter Seidell and Sarah Schneider from that College Humor/MTV thing we’ve never watched have written a song called “In an Apatow World.” It’s all about how the schlubby dudes in the Frat Pack movies would never be able to bag the chicks that they land in reel life in real life. Har har. … Read More

Video of the Day: "Dracula's Lament" (Live)

Being reminded of this little gem from Forgetting Sarah Marshall is the only reason we’re glad that I Love You Man is hitting theaters — we wince every time we see the billboard on the way to work, and we actually like Jason Segel and love Paul Rudd. The lesson here: puppet operas never go… Read More

Seth Rogen Should Not Make Pornos for TV Too

So he’s not spending all of his time in the gym: Variety reports that Seth Rogen is behind a new porno-based comedy for Showtime with his good buddy Evan Goldberg (other new Showtime series with A-list talent include Nurse Jackie which stars Edie Falco and United States of Tara from Diablo Cody).

Overexposed Rogen is one of the last members of Judd Apatow’s “Back Pack” that we’d like to see playing a guy running a pornography shop (maybe because he looks too much like a guy running a pornography shop), so we hope this isn’t one of those projects that he plans to write and star in. Knowing that these incestuous funny guys like to keep things in the family, after the jump you’ll find our casting suggestions for him — let us know if you agree with our ranking. … Read More
