The first trailer for the baseball drama Trouble with the Curve has been released. Clint Eastwood stars as an aging scout whose daughter (Amy Adams) reluctantly agrees to accompany him on one last crucial recruiting trip. Though the jokes are a bit hokey, the film looks to have a genuinely strong story anchored by the chemistry trifecta of Eastwood, Adams, and Justin Timberlake. Adams has the chance to shine in a strong female role, and the characters don’t seem to be overshadowed by some win-chasing plot device that propels many sports dramas. Moreover, 90s staple Matthew Lillard pops up in yet another prestigious drama and somehow fits right in.

In director John Stalberg’s stoner comedy, High School, soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush) decides to get high for the first time in his life after a chance encounter with the school’s resident drug head, Travis Breaux (Sean Marquette). Shortly afterward, he discovers that the school’s dictatorial principal, Dr. Leslie Gordon (Michael Chiklis), has just instituted a zero tolerance drug policy. When Gordon schedules a mandatory drug test for the entire school the next day, Henry sees his dreams of a bright college future are about to go up in smoke. His only option involves stealing law student-turned-drug dealer Psycho Ed’s (Adrien Brody) stash of high powered ganga.
At the press day for High School, we sat down at a roundtable interview with Chiklis and Bush. Chiklis, who portrayed Detective Vic Mackey on FX’s ground-breaking drama The Shield, revealed what attracted him to the project, how he developed his character, and why he had fun playing the outrageous role. Bush discussed how the film compared to his real-life high school experience and why he enjoys playing characters that are distinctly different. They also told us about their latest projects including Chiklis’ new CBS television series, Vegas, with Dennis Quaid and Bush’s feature film, Trouble with the Curve, with Clint Eastwood.
Dimension Films is doubling your pleasure with a second helping of boobs, blood and killer fish in this summer’s Piranha 3DD. For a while now, I thought the extra D was a cleverly disguised breast joke, but apparently it stands for “David,” as in David Hasselhoff. This new clip from the film features The Hoff in his oh-so-familiar role as a lifeguard. Fans of the glory days of Baywatch will get a kick out of the segment and the humor aimed at an aging Hasselhoff is spot-on to what you can expect from Piranha 3DD. Be sure to check out the trailer, red-band trailer, posters and images, as well. The film stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Koechner, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer, and Gary Busey. Piranha 3DD opens June 1st. Hit the jump to check out the new clip.
Dimension Films has unleashed seven new images from the gore-heavy sequel Piranha 3DD. They highlight everything we expect to see from the follow-up to Piranha 3D: good looking girls in swimsuits, Ving Rhames with a gun attachment instead of a leg, and David Hasselhoff. The sequel moves the action to a water park that’s (naturally) kept safe by stripper lifeguards, and I’m assuming much nudity and/or carnage ensues.

The first trailer for the pot comedy High School has gone online. Co-written and directed by John Stalberg, the film centers on a soon-to-be valedictorian (Matthew Bush) who smokes pot for the very first time, only to find out that a mandatory drug test has been scheduled at school. In a moment of panic, Bush and his friend (Sean Marquette) conspire to spike the school’s bake sale brownies with the help of a law-student-turned-drug-dealer (Adrien Brody) in order to make everyone fail the drug test. The trailer has a couple laughs, and I’ve heard that the full film is quite a bit better than this clip would have you believe. The premise could be a lot of fun, and Brody and Michael Chiklis are nearly unrecognizable as the psycho drug dealer and school principal, respectively. Moreover, it looks like there’s a Thurman Murman cameo, and every movie is automatically improved 100% with Thurman Murman.

The first trailer for Piranha 3DD has gone online. For everyone who loved the first movie, the new trailer wants to let you know, “All that stuff you liked? The boobs, the gore, the silliness, and all that stuff? Yep. That’s all here. Enjoy.” There seems to be some creative kills in store in addition to the goofiness of stripper-lifeguards and Ving Rhames-Gunlegs. My only problem with this trailer is the notable absence of Gary Busey. Hopefully, we’ll see him and his piranha-related lunacy soon.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Koechner, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Lloyd, and Paul Scheer. Piranha 3DD currently does not have a release date.
I haven’t gotten around to seeing Alexandre Aja’s remake of Piranha 3D, but I heard good things all around regarding its creative kills, delightful stupidity, and all-around exploitative nature. It’s a movie that knows what it wants to be an pulls it off. That general consensus combined with a solid box office performance has led to the sequel Piranha 3DD. The new film has the carnivorous fishies headed to a water park, which aren’t really sanitary places to begin with. Dimension Films premiered the first trailer last night at the SpikeTV Scream Awards and it looks like they’ve definitely got the “DD” part down. Also, Ving Rhames’s character apparently shops at the same prosthetics store as Cherry Darling. I have no complaints about gun-legs.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer. The fish food cast also includes Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, and Gary Busey. Piranha 3DD opens next year.
Piranha 3DD clearly has no desire to be considered a real movie and if attempting to top their previously-announced stunt casting of Gary Busey by hiring David Hasselhoff. Unfortunately, nothing beats Busey. The new film takes place at a water park so perhaps Hasselhoff will be playing a lifeguard. You know, because he was a lifeguard on Baywatch. So clever, Piranha 3DD.
The film also stars Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, and David Koechner. Piranha 3DD opens in 3D on November 23rd.
Gary Busey, currently known for the best set of crazy eyes this side of Michelle Bachmann, has joined the cast of Piranha 3DD. The press release describes Busey’s role as “potential fish bait”, but no matter his character, I seriously doubt he’ll be asked to give a performance equal to his Oscar-nominated turn as Buddy Holly in The Buddy Holly Story. That’s right: Gary Busey was a serious actor at one point and not just a walking punchline. But since Piranha 3DD is tongue-in-cheek (before angry fish devour your tongue and cheek), I don’t think that should be a problem. Hopefully, the resurgence of Busey will lead to Comedy Central finally releasing the short-lived series I’m With Busey on to DVD.
Piranha 3DD also stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, David Koechner, and Meagan Tandy. The film is due out in 3D on November 23rd.
The excellently monikered Marlboro Road Gang Productions has released the first trailer for Nice Guy Johnny, the latest from writer/director/star Edward Burns (Purple Violets). The film centers around the struggles of the titular Johnny to choose between jobs and females. The cast is led by Matt Bush (Adventureland) and Kerry Bishé (Scrubs), with Burns, Anna Wood, and Max Baker supporting. Check out the trailer after the jump.
The first teaser trailer for the stoner comedy High School has been released. With it being 4/20, I think they picked the right day. Premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the movie is about two former best friends that decide to get everyone in their High School stoned so no one can pass the mandatory drug test. Starring Michael Chiklis, Adrien Brody, Colin Hanks, Matt Bush and Sean Marquette, the film got decent reviews at the Festival and I’ve heard it’ll be getting released this fall on 1500 screens. Until then…check out the teaser after the jump. The voice you’ll hear is Adrien Brody as Psycho Ed.
