"Oh yeah, I forgot, you haven't laughed since the '60s."
Comedy may often look easy, but line up the growing number of big-screen comedy misfires and its clear that it isn't. In fact, recent evidence suggests that its harder to get audiences to laugh than it is to get them to enjoy, say, a 3-D visual spectacle or a potentially scary thriller.
Take next month's Big Wedding, for instance. Despite a cast that includes Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Robin Williams, Topher Grace and Robert De Niro, we couldn't find much to like in the movie's first trailer, but now another trailer has arrived in hopes of impressing audiences. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.20.13 by Ryan

Ashton Kutcher wore his wedding ring at Bill Clinton's Decade of Difference concert, and Demi Moore did likewise at the NYC red carpet for her thriller Margin Call, though there was more buzzing about what Kutcher's sex scandal has done to her weight as she's veered into LeAnn Rimes territory.
Susan Sarandon is under fire for calling the Pope a Nazi, and is being asked by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to apologize to the Catholic Community and "all those she may have offended." Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) was born in Germany and forced to join the Hitler Youth in 1941 when he turned 14.
While Shia LaBeouf is hell-bent on cultivating a bad-boy image, he would do well to stop getting his ass kicked as his latest drubbing occurred outside a Vancouver bar where he was repeatedly punched in the face with his back flat on the sidewalk. Shia is in Canada shooting The Company You Keep, starring the aforementioned Sarandon and real bad boy Nick Nolte.
Death threats made to Selena Gomez are serious enough that the LAPD is on the case and Gomez obtained a restraining order against Thomas Brodnicki, who told his psychologist he was going to kill the pop star.
While reality TV may have claimed the life of Russell Armstong, who committed suicide earlier this year, ex-wife Taylor Armstrong says The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills actually saved hers, claiming that Bravo's cameras protected her from domestic violence that could've escalated to murder.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is needs some big-time help for one of his next movies and that help is coming from... Susan Sarandon?
Currently shooting G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation, THR reports that one of Johnson's next projects is the action thriller Snitch, which sees the former wrestler-turned-action star play a suburban father who goes undercover to help capture a drug dealer when his teenage son is given a long prison sentence. Sarandon will play an ambitious U.S. attorney who thinks a drug bust will help her political ambitions.
Written and directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Felon), Snitch was originally written by Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road), until Waugh became attached and rewrote the script, and is based on a Frontline documentary. No word on when Snitch will start shooting — oddly, no one is talking. More casting news >> Posted 09.28.11 by Ryan
20th Century Fox has released a poster and a teaser trailer for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Clearly, Michael Douglas hasn't lost any of his slimy mojo and still relishes playing monstrous corporate bigwig Gordon Gekko.
The movie, due in April, is Oliver Stone's follow-up to his 1987 movie about a naive young broker (Charlie Sheen)who gets taken under Gekko's wing. Douglas went on to win an Oscar for his performance, and to many audiences, Gekko remains one of the most vile-yet-charismatic villains ever portrayed on screen.
Douglas will star opposite Shia LaBeouf, who plays an ambitious young trader, similar to Sheen's character in the first movie. Also starring are Susan Sarandon, Josh Brolin, Frank Langella, and Carey Mulligan. Oliver Stone has confirmed that Charlie Sheen will also make an appearance. Posted 01.29.10 by reelz
Empire recently spoke with Michael Douglas about Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.
The movie, due next April, is Oliver Stone's follow-up to his 1987 movie about a naive young broker (played by Charlie Sheen) who gets taken under the wing of Douglas' character, the monstrous bigwig Gordon "Greed Is Good" Gekko. Douglas went on to win an Oscar for his performance, and to many audiences, Gekko remains one of the most-vile-yet-charismatic villains ever portrayed on screen.
In the interview, Douglas talked a bit about the plot of the new movie, as well as its current relevance.
It's 22 years later. Gordon has done about eight years in jail and got out in about 2001. The picture predominantly focuses on these last couple of years on Wall Street, which nobody anticipated. We shot the first one in 1986 and it was a wild, wild colourful time. And here we have both a train crash and a larger-than-life period leading up to that train crash. It's an exciting time to make a picture about Wall Street.
Douglas will star opposite Shia LaBeouf, who plays an ambitious young trader, similar to Sheen's character in the first movie. Check out LaBeouf in these stills, courtesy of Reel Loop.
Money Never Sleeps also stars Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, and Josh Brolin. Oliver Stone has confirmed that Charlie Sheen will also make an appearance. Posted 09.14.09 by reelz
The trades told us this week that Susan Sarandon will be joining the all-star cast of Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, directed by Oliver Stone.
The addition of Sarandon further solidifies an impressive cast, which includes Michael Douglas as the newly freed and money-hungry Gordon Gekko, Shia LaBeouf as an ambitious young day trader, and Frost/Nixon's Frank Langella as LaBeouf's Wall Street mentor.
And while LaBeouf takes over a role similar to Charlie Sheen's in the first movie, there's no word yet on whether Sheen will be making a cameo. Last we heard, though, greed is still good. Posted 08.29.09 by reelz
