"Gru's back in the game with cool cars, gadgets and weapons!"
Promotion on Despicable Me 2 began over a year ago with the release of a short teaser trailer and escalated to more trailers and TV spots, most of which simply depicted the tiny, yellow Minions from the original, 2010's Despicable Me. Finally, a new trailer has arrived online that actually delves into the sequel's story, which sees Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) recruited to be a part of the Anti-Villain League in order to bring down his nemesis, the character voice by Al Pacino that has yet to be revealed (and does not appear in the trailer). Still, if the trailer proves anything, it's that if you liked the first Despicable Me, you'll probably like the second which is good news especially if you have kids, since they won't want to miss it. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.19.13 by Ryan
Carrey and Carell reunite to bring the magic.
It's pretty clear that Jim Carrey and Steve Carell like working together. The pair first worked together in 2003's Bruce Almighty, then both did voice work in 2008's Horton Hears a Who. In 2011, Carrey appeared in an episode of The Office, but it was the first to lack Carell as the show's lead. Finally, the two actors are together again for the upcoming comedy Burt Wonderstone playing rival magicians.
Carell plays the title role, one half of a magic act that also includes his longtime partner Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). However, a rift forms between the two as a rising street magician named Steve Gray (Carrey) threatens to end their Las Vegas careers. As seen in the first trailer, Wonderstone must try to rediscover his love of magic, and finds help from the elderly Rance Holloway (Alan Arkin, reuniting with Carell for the first time since 2008's Get Smart), who inspired Wonderstone to become a magician in the first place. making the latest trailers reappear

With more than 500 published works, Bradbury is best known for Fahrenheit 451, which was turned into a movie in 1966 starring Julie Christie and Oskar Werner.

He also received a Pulitzer Prize citation "for his distinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy" and a lifetime achievement National Book Award.
Singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge has reached a settlement with her former domestic partner Tammy Lynn Michaels and the terms are a little surprising. In addition to the $23,000 a month in spousal and child support that Etheridge is to pay to Michaels, she is also obligated to fork over some of her royalties. Under the agreement, Michaels will receive 50% of the royalties from the album The Awakening, and the same cut for over a dozen other Etheridge songs.
Actor Steve Carell was the keynote speaker at Princeton's Class Day address and gave the graduating seniors a truly inspiring speech. He declared fellow actor Stephen Colbert to be "the worst," he encouraged the graduates to "embrace our analog past," and he recommend getting a dog because "cats are lame." What more does any young person need to know?
And in "wishful thinking" news: Amanda Bynes has implored President Obama to help her out of her recent legal troubles involving a DUI and hit-and-run, tweeting: "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end." Good luck with that. Posted 06.06.12 by Mandy
Despite the fact that it won't start production until next year and has no firm release date, a teaser trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues arrived in theaters this weekend prior to showings of The Dictator. After only a day, bootleg versions leaked online of course, much to the chagrin of Paramount Pictures we're sure.
For those who skipped the poorly shot, cell-phone bootleg, the studio has responded with not one but two teaser trailers featuring the Action4 news team of Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brian Fontana (Paul Rudd), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and Champ Kind (David Koechner). While director Adam McKay and Ferrell have just started writing the script, the one-liners here should suffice for fans of the 2004 original. watch the teasers >> Posted 05.21.12 by Ryan
Sure, Despicable Me 2 is not due in theaters until Summer 2013 — and hasn't even finished filming yet — but that hasn't stopped the studio from releasing a teaser trailer. Not surprisingly, all we get to see are the minions... a quartet of them rocking out to The Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann" in their trademark minion-speak.
In the sequel to 2010's Despicable Me, Gru (Steve Carell) is set to face a new villain. Javier Bardem was originally cast but had to drop out of the production. Al Pacino stepped in as the villain — a change that sent producer Chris Meledandri over the moon Gru wanted to steal and left him telling Collider: "So exciting! That's a highlight of one's career. That's crazy, wonderful, and incredible." Watch the Teaser Trailer >> Posted 03.02.12 by reelz
If a meteor was certain to crash on Earth, bringing the end of the world with it, would you head out on a road trip to find your first love with your neighbor? That's what Steve Carell and Keira Knightley are up to in the upcoming dramedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Of course, with the apocalypse looming, it's not your average road trip, as the pair encounter a world filled with varied responses to the end of days, including a over-friendly restaurant waitstaff, a by-the-book police officer, and your typical apocalypse looters and rioters.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria, who wrote the similarly long-titled Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. The movie co-stars Patton Oswalt (Young Adult), Connie Britton (American Horror Story) and Adam Brody (Cop Out). watch the trailer >> Posted 02.10.12 by Ryan

Just days ago, writer-director Quentin Tarantino added four new cast members to his upcoming, anti-slavery "Southern" movie Django Unchained, and it doesn't look like he's done casting just yet.
THR reports Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) has been cast in a "minor but showy role" of a quirky gambler.
In the movie, a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) works to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a sadistic slave owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). Cohen's character will purchase Washington much to his misfortune. Steve Carell to play a soccer dad; Max Irons lands coveted The Host role >> Posted 11.12.11 by Ryan
Writer-director Quentin Tarantino has been slowly putting together a solid cast for his upcoming "Southern" Django Unchained, which follows Jamie Foxx as a freed slave determined to rescue his wife from a sadistic slave owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). Tarantino recently added his Deathproof actor Kurt Russell to the cast as evil slave trainer Ace Woody, replacing Kevin Costner who recently dropped out, as well as Kill Bill, Vol. 2's Laura Cayouette as DiCaprio's widowed sister.
Deadline reports that the latest addition to the cast is Don Johnson, who will play a wealthy plantation owner named Spencer Bennett. Casting a veteran actor who hasn't been in many recent high-profile projects is typical of Tarantino, who rejuvenated the careers of actors like John Travolta (Pulp Fiction) and Robert Forster (Jackie Brown). Johnson recently appeared as the villainous Von Stillman in last year's Machete, directed by Tarantino's friend and frequent collaborator Robert Rodriguez.
Johnson joins a cast filled with Tarantino alumni, including Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz. Django is set to start shooting in November, and has been given a release date of December 25, 2012.
