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

Which of this year's actors are worthy of the industry's highest honor?
If the screenplay is the backbone of a movie and the director its eyes, the actors and actresses who bring the characters to life on screen are its heart and soul. A bad script in the hands of wonderful actors can still make for a pretty decent movie, but give a wonderful script to bad actors and you're gonna get a bad movie every time. This year, there were a considerable number of exceptionally well written movies starring talented actors and actresses released by both independent studios and the majors so there are almost too many eligible candidates to consider for Academy Award nominations. We already asked you to tell us which actresses deserve consideration come Oscar time — so far, you've chosen Jennifer Lawrence for her leading role in Silver Linings Playbook and Anne Hathaway for her supporting role in Les Miserables — now tell us which actors are worthy of the movie industry's highest honors, whether Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor.

The marketing campaign for the upcoming The Muppets has taken an unusual and fun path, concentrating on parody trailers to go along with the actual trailer released in June.
The latest parody trailer makes light of the dark trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake, which made use of numerous title cards interspersed with footage from the movie. The Muppets parody trailer takes that style and takes it a step farther, and perceptive viewers will catch glimpses of a few of the movie's many cameos, including Rico Rodriguez (ABC's Modern Family), comedian Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris (The Smurfs) and Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine). watch the trailer >> Posted 09.15.11 by Ryan
After the success of last year's crime drama The Town, Ben Affleck is filling his schedule with directing work. Deadline reports Warner Bros has hired Affleck to direct its co-production (with Universal Pictures) of Tell No One, a remake of the 2006 French thriller based on the novel by Harlan Coben and directed by Guillaume Canet.
Sony Pictures initially attempted to adapt Coben's novel in 2003, with Star Trek screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman attempting to crack the dense and intricately plotted novel into a movie, but it never came together and Sony eventually gave up. Canet's and co-screenwriter Philippe Lefebvre's attempt proved successful, with their version of Tell No One debuting to excellent reviews.
Chris Terrio (Heights) is writing the screenplay for the movie, which, to put it simply, follows a pediatrician hunting down the truth of his wife's murder. Terrio also wrote the script for the political thriller Argo, Affleck's next directorial effort. who's cast in Argo? >> Posted 06.16.11 by Ryan
Director Todd Phillips is following up his hit movie The Hangover with another comedy, Due Date, which tells the story of a father-to-be (Robert Downey Jr.) who reluctantly hitches a ride with a college slacker (Zach Galifianakis) in an attempt to get home before the birth of his child.
Alan Arkin told Collider that he has joined the production to play Downey Jr.'s estranged father, who Downey Jr. has not seen in twenty-five years. Arkin claims that his scenes are largely improvised.
We did a lot of improvising and restructuring the stuff I was in. [Downey Jr.]'s got a very, very fast mind. He thinks about every aspect of the production. He knows exactly what he needs and what the scene needs, and he's very quick to be able to play around with the structure, within all those things that are going on. He's a very, very smart young man. Posted 11.17.09 by Ryan
