New Trailer for THE HANGOVER PART II
by Jason Barr Posted: March 31st, 2011
Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for The Hangover Part II. Overall, I’m pretty happy with this new trailer. It gives a solid sense of setting, does a good job of setting up the obstacles without giving too much away, and makes use of a track from the new Kanye album (always a plus, for me). Nevertheless, I can’t help but feel as if the trailer is a little too self-referential to the original (i.e. Alan’s love of terrible toasts and penis jokes, and Stu’s fear of once again breaking his teeth). Just my opinion, though.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Directed by Todd Phillips, The Hangover Part II stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Jeffrey Tambor, Mike Tyson, Justin Bartha, and Ken Jeong. The film opens May 26th.
Steve Carell and Keira Knightley in Talks for SEEKING A FRIEND AT THE END OF THE WORLD
by Brendan Bettinger Posted: March 31st, 2011
Steve Carell and Keira Knightley are in negotiations to star in the romantic comedy Seeking a Friend at the End of the World, which follows “a search by one man (Carell) for a meaningful connection amid the end times.” The film will be the directorial debut of Lorene Scafaria, the writer of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist and lover of long titles. Scafaria is a member of the femme screenwriter collective the “Fempire” with Diablo Cody, Dana Fox, and Liz Meriwhether. (I like the group, but I’ll chip in $20 for the word “fempire” to go away.) THR reports that principal photography is scheduled for May in Los Angeles.
Following his departure from The Office after seven seasons, Carell looks to film Great Hope Springs and Burt Wonderstone later this year. He will next be seen opposite Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love, due July 29. Knightley recently wrapped production with Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender on the Sigmund Freud/Carl Jung biopic A Dangerous Method. Knightley is set to reunite with director Joe Wright (Atonement) for an adaptation of Anna Karenina........ more; http://collider.com/steve-carell-keira-knightley-seeking-friend-end-of-the-world/83461/
