"Hermoine just stole all of our s**t."
After the release of an April Fool's joke trailer for a sequel to 2008's Pineapple Express, an actual, red-band trailer has been released for the upcoming, apocalyptic comedy This is the End.
The movie follows Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel as fictional versions of themselves trying to stay alive while living in Franco's house after an apocalypse hits the planet. The NSFW trailer shows the movie's many cameos, including Michael Cera, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Aziz Ansari and a not-messing-around Emma Watson, whose apocalypse survival instinct is take what's hers. watch the trailer >> Posted 04.03.13 by Ryan
"We should make more sequels to our movies."
For those that loved the 2008 comedy Pineapple Express, you're in luck: Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson, along with Jonah Hill, have teamed up for a sequel, sort of.
In what is clearly a April Fool's joke, Sony Pictures has released a trailer for Pineapple Express 2, reuniting Dale (Rogen), Saul (Franco), Red (McBride) and henchman Matheson (Robinson), that quickly revealed to be the trailer for This is the End instead. The upcoming comedy sees those same actors (plus Jay Baruschel) play fictional(?) versions of themselves as they live together in a single apartment while a global apocalypse destroys the Earth. watch the trailer >> Posted 04.01.13 by Ryan
One of the long-gestating projects for actor-writer Seth Rogen has been the end-of-the-world horror-comedy Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse, which we first reported on in 2008. The "Jay" of the the title is Rogen's Knocked Up co-star Jay Baruchel. To promote the production, the two actors made an eight-minute short (NSFW) that took place in a dingy apartment with a dwindling water supply in a post-apocalyptic world.
Now, after several years of waiting, it looks as though the full-length movie version is on the way, but will include more than just Baruchel and Rogen, as Rogen revealed to MTV: more cast and plot details revealed >> Posted 09.22.11 by Ryan
Author Elmore Leonard has had a prolific writing career that goes back to the 1950's and has had several of his books turned into movies, including 1995's Get Shorty, 1997's Jackie Brown (based on his novel Rum Punch) and 1998's Out of Sight, to name a few. The latest adaptation is Freaky Deaky, Leonard's 1988 novel about a couple of '60s radicals that decide to make money in the 1970s with their bomb-making skills, which is being adapted and directed by Charles Matthau. The movie is already assembling a great cast.
Deadline reports that Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser, William H. Macy and Craig Robinson have joined the cast of Freaky Deaky. Dillon will play Chris Mankowski, a Vietnam veteran turned Detroit police sergeant on the force's bomb squad, while Fraser will play Skip Gibbs, a former '60s radical who's now a Hollywood dynamite expert. Macy plays an alcoholic playboy millionaire who is threatened by Skip and his girlfriend to pay $3 million or have his house blown up, and Robinson plays Donnell Lewis, Woody's driver and ex-Black Panther who is looking to cash in. Sienna Miller was already cast as Robin, the other '60s radical and Skip's girlfriend, last week. read the full synopsis >> Posted 06.04.11 by Ryan

A new trailer has emerged online for Hot Tub Time Machine, starring John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke. If ever a title told the story of a movie it's this one, but here's the official synopsis anyway.
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE follows a group of best friends who've become bored with their adult lives: Adam (John Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Rob Corddry) is a party guy who can't find the party; Nick's (Craig Robinson) wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob (Clark Duke) won't leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures — one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!
The movie is directed by Steve Pink, Cusack's screenwriting partner on Grosse Point Blank and High Fidelity. Check out the trailer below. Posted 02.12.10 by Ryan
