A comedy that explores when neighbors get too close.
David and Paige Walling (Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener) are best friends with Terry and Cathy Ostroff (Oliver Platt and Allison Janney) in their New Jersey suburb. When Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meester) comes home for Thanksgiving with her engagement a bust, her parents hope to set her up with their neighbors' son Toby Walling (Adam Brody), only it's the elder Walling that Nina has her eyes on. Once Nina and David's affair becomes public, the movie's red band (NSFW) trailer shows that just about everybody goes into meltdown mode as they wrestle with their emotions over the news. watch the green band trailer >> Posted 09.12.12 by Ryan
Playing a former President or First Lady is becoming a trend in movies these days, especially with Precious director Lee Daniels' upcoming The Butler, which will span eight different administrations while it tells the story of White House butler Eugene Allen. While Alan Rickman will play actor-turned-President Ronald Reagan in that project, it looks like Michael Douglas will also get a chance to play Reagan as well.

Brazilian director José Padilha's (Elite Squad) last few casting choices for his Robocop remake have provided insight into how the movie will differ from director Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original. First, Gary Oldman (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) was cast as Norton, the scientist who creates Robocop and finds himself in a moral dilemma between his loyalty to his creation and the company that employs him; a character that did not exist in the original. Then, Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) was cast as "charismatic media mogul" Pat Novak, another character that wasn't in the original Robocop. Now Padilha's looking to cast the remake's villain, who will again be an executive at the megacorporation that created Robocop.
THR reports that House actor Hugh Laurie is in negotiations to play the CEO of Omnicorp, the company behind the cyborg known as Robocop. The company in the original was Omni Consumer Products, or OCP. Whether Laurie's taking the place of the original's chairman referred to as "The Old Man" (Dan O'Herlihy) or senior president Dick Jones (Ronny Cox) — or a combination of the two characters — is unknown. But it's clear that the CEO of Omnicorp will be the movie's villain. more about the Robocop remake >> Posted 06.13.12 by Ryan
