A love story about avoiding love.
When it comes to romantic comedies, love triangles are nothing new, but it seems that the upcoming Save the Date may have found a way to reinvigorate the standard. The movie follows Sarah (Lizzy Caplan), who turns down a marriage proposal from her boyfriend Kevin (Geoffrey Arend), who, in turn, is in a band with the fiance (Martin Starr) of Sarah's sister Beth (Alison Brie). While Beth is excited for her upcoming wedding, Sarah wants to avoid the alter altogether, which doesn't stop Jonathan (Mark Webber) from trying to woo her even while she's in "rebound" mode.more trailers to laugh and cry at

A comedy about...love?
There are plenty of jokes and humorous situations in the red band trailer for the upcoming comedy 3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom, and there's also a lot of people yelling at each other and partial nudity. What there isn't is a clear idea of what the plotline is, so we'll stick with the description cast member Lizzy Caplan gave The Playlist last year.

It's about a guy whose life has been ruined by a YouTube video that has gone viral and so he's been hiding out and he gets brought back into civilization — because he's been living in the middle nowhere — by his really manipulative, horrible brother. And everybody in his life is sort of terrible [and it's about] how he deals with that.

Opening today in theaters, the comedy Bachelorette follows three longtime friends (Lizzy Caplan, Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher) who have to put their past aside while planning a bachelorette party for a girl they mocked in high school (Rebel Wilson). That doesn't mean that the friends behave properly, with wedding dresses getting ripped and debauchery only the beginning of the ladies' wild night.
Not unlike last year's Bridesmaids, Bachelorette is another comedy about women getting raunchy and rowdy, a trend that Fisher told Hollywood Dailies has "been around" but is "now on everyone's radar." When the cast sat down with Audrey Cleo, they discussed women in comedy and offered their own preferences for bachelorette party-planning. watch the trailer >> Posted 09.07.12 by Ryan
Last year's Bridesmaids followed Kristen Wiig as a single woman in her mid-30s whose life becomes unglued when her best friend reveals she is going to get married. The movie earned Wigg and co-writer Annie Mumolo an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay and was a huge boost for female-driven comedies. Sold — fairly or unfairly — as a female counterpoint to The Hangover, the success was guaranteed to inspire other movies.
Enter Bachelorette, which sees three longtime friends (Lizzy Caplan, Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher) see their lives turned upside down when they plan a bachelorette party for a girl they mocked in high school. Bridesmaids actress Rebel Wilson plays the bride-to-be, which adds another comparison, but is it fair to compare the two comedies simply because they feature female leads and weddings? ReelzChannel movie expert Richard Roeper sorts it out in his review above. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.30.12 by Ryan
The 2011 comedy Bridesmaids proved that, not only can female actresses be as funny and gross as their male counterparts, but that audiences would eat it up and come back for more. Well, Bridesmaids 2 may never happen without Kristen Wiig, but the cast of Bachelorette — Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Bridesmaids star Rebel Wilson — recently took to the red carpet for the premiere of their R-rated female-driven comedy and they claim that their movie is "even ruder, even raunchier" than Bridesmaids.
Another female-led movie premiered the same night as Bachelorette, but this one trades laughs for screams. Twilight star Ashley Greene headlines writer-director Todd Lincoln's new supernatural horror movie, The Apparition, which centers around a "horrifying apparition" that is actually conjured into existence by parapsychology students trying to prove that belief in the supernatural is enough for it to exist. Greene hasn't had any paranormal frights of her own (that she cared to share, anyway), but she did reveal to our own Jeremy Parsons the scariest experience of her life. Watch the video above to find out what it was. more about Bachelorette and The Apparition >> Posted 08.26.12 by BrentJS
During the recent San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios teased those of us unable to make the trek to San Diego for its Hall H presentation with nine whole seconds of the new live-action short film Marvel One-Shot: Item 47 that will be included as an extra on The Avengers DVD/Blu-ray when it is released in September. The movie takes place in the post-Chitauri invasion Marvel Cinematic Universe and the teaser clip showed S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández ) being dispatched to retrieve a stray Chitauri weapon and "neutralize the two outlaws" who found it. Now, an extended preview clip has been released that shows us that the "two outlaws" are really not such bad people, just a pair of "hapless young troublemakers" (Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford) who think that the Chitauri weapon was delivered to them by fate to help improve their lives, i.e., use it to get rich robbing banks. watch the preview clip >> Posted 07.23.12 by BrentJS
With everyone's favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), er, out of the picture following the events in The Avengers, many fans were left wondering who would take his place in the next One-Shot short film that will be included with the home video release of the record-setting super-team movie. EW was the first to get the scoop about the new short, titled Item 47, and, while S.H.I.E.L.D. agents do appear in the short, the focus shifts from the super-secret spy agency to a piece of tech ("Item 47") left behind following The Avengers' battle with the Chitauri and the pair of "hapless young troublemakers" (Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford) who find it. see the preview image & learn more about Item 47 >> Posted 07.03.12 by BrentJS
