The Jamie Linden-scripted romantic drama Dear John was a big hit for Channing Tatum when it debuted in 2010, actually knocking Avatar off of the #1 spot at the box office after seven weeks of dominance. It's no wonder then that Tatum jumped at the chance to re-team with Linden when the screenwriter decided to direct his next screenplay himself. The result is the romantic drama 10 Years (formerly Ten Year), which is about a group of friends who reunite at their ten-year class reunion and realize that they still haven't quite grown up. Here's the synopsis:

Jake (Tatum) is deeply in love with his girlfriend and ready to propose — until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in years. Jake's friend Cully (Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend, and has been looking forward to the reunion so he can finally apologize to all the classmates he bullied in high school. However, after a few too many drinks, the jock-turned-family man ends up reverting back to his old ways instead. Meanwhile, longtime rivals Marty (Justin Long) and A.J (Max Minghella) spend the night picking up right where they left off, vying to impress the hottest girl in class. The famous one of the group, Reeves (Oscar Isaac) is now a rock star, but is still too shy to talk to his high school crush.
Going the Distance's move from August 27 to September 3 was done so the romantic comedy would be farther away from "other female-driven films releasing in August," which we assume would mean Eat, Pray, Love and, possibly, Vampires Suck, but it seems like the studio's alternate plan was to release the movie in small clips, with three of them arriving yesterday. Three more clips have made their way online, showing the difficulty Drew Barrymore and Justin Long face when they decide to continue their relationship long distance. In the first clip, Barrymore and Long bond during a date at a mediocre Italian restaurant. Watch the clips >> Posted 08.20.10 by Ryan
Erin and Garrett (played by real-life on/off couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long) are a bi-coastal couple trying desperately to keep their long-distance relationship alive in the upcoming romantic comedy Going the Distance. In the first of three new clips, Garrett's roommate, Dan (Charlie Day), provides some unsolicited musical accompaniment for the young lovers. see the other two clips >> Posted 08.19.10 by BrentJS
Despite the recent deluge of posters and TV spots promoting Going the Distance's August 27 release date, SlashFilm reports that Warner Bros. has decided to push back the movie's release by one week to September 3.
“Moving to the Labor Day weekend not only allows us to take advantage of the long holiday weekend, but gives us some distance from the other female-driven films releasing in August," said Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution. "Additionally, we have an opportunity to build more awareness and word-of-mouth for a movie we believe [appeals to] a broad audience.” Will reshuffle help or hurt Going the Distance? >> Posted 08.12.10 by Ryan
A funeral director isn't normally expected to have a reassuring bedside manner. And indeed in this claustrophobic first look at the psychological thriller After.Life, a young accident victim (Christina Ricci) wakes up — after a fashion — on the slab, to find herself under the care of funeral director Eliot Deacon (Liam Neeson), whose creepy advice and evident control issues don't exactly inspire confidence. He claims that he is helping her transition between life and death, but she can't help but suspect he is intent on burying her alive. Meanwhile, her grief-stricken boyfriend (Justin Long) soon finds reasons of his own to wonder what the hell is going on. Posted 03.03.10 by reelz
With Surrogates in theaters and enjoying a disappointing run, why wouldn't Bruce Willis want to return as John McClane in another Die Hard? Willis says it's all about the timing.
I would love to do another one but they better get it done soon, what with the march of time and all that. I'm not getting any younger.
Willis may be getting older, but he was spry enough to lift the fourth Die Hard installment, Live Free or Die Hard to $383 million worldwide. Around the time of Live Free's release, Willis told Cinematical that Fox was excited for another Die Hard.
Fox is already talking about doing another one. I told them I would only do it if [director] Len [Wiseman] is involved, and Maggie Q. And Justin [Long], of course. You can't do one without Justin.
Two years later, Willis must be getting anxious. Still, with older action stars like Sylvester Stallone and Harrison Ford still working in their respective action franchises, it's a good bet there's a future for Die Hard 5. Just don't make it anything like Die Hard 2, the one sequel Willis hates.
The second film, if you go back and look at the second film, there are so many f**kin' references, referring to the first film. It was such bulls**t, I just hated it. It was really just a stupid, stupid thing. I don't know, I mean I liked jumping out of the helicopter onto the wing of that plane. I liked that from the second one. But I'd have to look at it to tell you if there was anything else I liked. Posted 10.06.09 by Ryan
Although the new TV spot for Drag Me to Hell is mostly review-quote driven, it does open with a nice extended version of the seance sequence from the trailer in which those assembled chant, "I welcome the dead into my soul." A fair enough omen for all sorts of horrific invasions to come.
The cast and director dig deeper into the horror in a featurette over at Shock Till You Drop. Alison Lohman confesses that, like her character in the movie, she really would kill a kitten to survive. Justin Long professes his love for the performance director Sam Raimi managed to tease out of the maggots and the fly. And Raimi, himself, explains how he tried to incorporate what he has learned about characterization in his work outside the genre to make his return to horror that much more personal.

The first step on the road to Hell, as we can see in the first of three new clips from Drag Me to Hell, is getting dragged out of your car by an enraged old gypsy woman (Lorna Raver). Locking the door is no help as she smashes through the window to exact her revenge. And all this before the curse on loan officer Alison Lohman really even gets started.
In the second clip, we get a little comic relief with the first look at how the cursed loan officer's skeptical boyfriend, professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long), reacts to being dragged to a seer to figure out how to lift the curse.
In the third, locked doors once again provide little protection. This time from the menacing shadows of hands that infiltrate from below. Such shadows were also central in an earlier clip, so it looks like this will be one of the demon's favored manifestations. Posted 05.19.09 by reelz
Based on the self-help book that blossomed out of a Sex and the City episode, He's Just Not That Into You has been adapted for the screen and features a massive ensemble cast of stars and starlets, including Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlett Johansson, Bradley Cooper, Justin Long, and Kevin Connolly. Drew Barrymore does double duty, starring and producing for her Flower Films banner.
So is He's Just Not That Into You the ultimate chick flick? Something men should dread and steer clear of if their date suggests it? Find out in our review. Posted 02.06.09 by reelz
The iconic popularity of those incessant "I'm a Mac, and I'm a PC" television ads have been part blessing, part curse for actor Justin Long. While they have certainly offered an entirely new level of exposure, they've also tended to overshadow Long's scene-stealing work in movies like Live Free or Die Hard and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. You also have to wonder how many times he gets approached by Mac nerds asking him to explain what the heck that spinning color wheel means?
Long's latest role in He's Just Not That Into You may well be the most demanding part of his career. Instead of playing the comic relief, his character Alex is pretty far removed from the roles of Long's past.
We sat down for an exclusive interview with Justin Long at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles to discuss his transition from jokester to romantic leading man. Posted 02.05.09 by reelz
