Universal Pictures has released a batch of high-resolution Neighbors images from director Nicholas Stoller’s (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Five-Year Engagement) new comedy.  The film stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a married couple with a newborn baby who must deal with a fraternity—fronted by Zac Efron—when it moves in next door.  Response to the pic’s premiere at the SXSW Film Festival was highly positive, and the trailers released thus far have promised an incredibly funny R-rated comedy.  That’s no surprise when you have comedic talents like Rogen and Byrne heading up the film, but Efron has drawn strong notice as well and I’m eager to see his interplay with the Rogen/Bryne pairing.

Sony Pictures is wasting no time in finding a new director for its high-profile Steve Jobs biopic.  The film initially looked to be a Social Network reunion, as David Fincher circled the Aaron Sorkin-penned project for a bit before falling off when Sony balked at his stipulations for directing.  Now, a mere week later, Danny Boyle has entered the conversation, and the Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker is eyeing the project as a potential The Beach reunion with Leonardo DiCaprio as his top choice to take on the leading role.  More after the jump.

Back in February, The Fantastic Four finally nailed down its eponymous superheroes and a few weeks ago it got an actor for the villain.  Now that we know who’s playing Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), Invisible Woman (Kate Mara), Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan), The Thing (Jamie Bell), and Doctor Doom (Toby Kebbell), we can move on to the many, many other questions about the movie.  One question is how will the costumes compare to the previous Fantastic Four movies?  Those costumes stuck fairly close to the comics with the heavy emphasis on blue spandex and the “4″ badge.  With a much younger cast set for the reboot, what other radical changes can we expect?

Hit the jump for what Kinberg told us about The Fantastic Four reboot, the costumes, tone, shooting schedule, and more at WonderConThe Fantastic Four opens June 19, 2015.

Few others can rival the sheer magnitude of franchises that Jerry Bruckheimer has under his belt.  Not only is he behind immensely popular film series like Pirates of the Caribbean, but he’s also the shepherd of the long-running TV shows CSI and The Amazing Race.  While we know that future installments in the Pirates series and the Beverly Hills Cop franchise are firmly in the works, a couple of other lucrative franchises remain in a state of uncertainty.

We recently spoke with Bruckheimer at WonderCon in anticipation of the upcoming horror film Deliver Us from Evil, and during the course of the conversation, the producer gave updates on the status of Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3.  He revealed the reason why Bad Boys 3 has been so difficult to get going, and disclosed that he actually just received a draft for the first act of National Treasure 3.  Hit the jump to read his full comments.

First Look at Paul Walker’s Brothers Caleb and Cody on the Set of FAST & FURIOUS 7

fast-furious-7-caleb-walker-cody-walker-slice

Last week, we reported that Fast & Furious 7 had brought on Paul Walker‘s brothers Caleb and Cody to help finish the production.  The specifics of how they’ll help the production haven’t been revealed, but presumably they’ll be working as body doubles.  There may be other ways the production tries to fill in Walker’s role whether it’s through CGI and/or re-writes, but at the very least, hiring Walker’s brothers is a sign of respect.  It also helps that they look a lot like him.  Vin Diesel posted a set photo on his Facebook page, and while I’m not sure which one is Caleb and which is Cody, the brother on the right bears such a strong resemblance that they might even be able to pull off close-ups.

It’s odd to think that a Fast & Furious movie will be so heavily scrutinized right down to how it’s trying to manage Paul Walker’s unfinished scenes.  We go to these movies for dumb fun, but there will be a pall over the finished film as it tries to find the balance between big, brash action and deep respect for its deceased star.  Check out the set photo after the jump.  Fast & Furious 7 opens April 10, 2015.

Director Don McKellar’s The Grand Seduction trailer is now online, courtesy of eOne Entertainment.  The light-hearted comedy takes place in the small fishing village that’s in desperate need of a doctor, not just to treat its variously (and humorously) afflicted residents, but to fulfill a business contract that will keep the local factory up and running.  When a young doctor (Taylor Kitsch) arrives for a trial residency period, the town’s mayor (Brendan Gleeson) pulls out all the stops in order to woo the man into setting up shop permanently.  It’s an odd bit of plot that comes out of left field, but the trailer shows off the film’s quaint sense of humor.

Also starring Liane Balaban, the film opens May 30th.  Hit the jump to watch The Grand Seduction trailer.

Though Twitter on Sunday nights is usually dominated by discussion about the excellent Mad Men and Game of Thrones, HBO is also airing a killer comedy block in the post-Game of Thrones slot with Silicon Valley and Veep.  As such, it comes as great news that HBO has renewed Silicon Valley for a second season and Veep for a fourth season.  The former is the new series from Mike Judge that revolves around a tech startup in the titular Silicon Valley, and though we’re only three episodes in, it’s quickly proving itself to be one of the funniest shows on television.  Moreover, Judge is offering up a weekly dose of brilliant satire that takes aim at our current culture of tech giants.  If you missed them, be sure to catch up on Allison’s recaps.

As for Veep, the ensemble comedy remains as sharp and mean as ever in its current third season, which sees Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ lead character heading down a promising new path.  If you’re not already watching Silicon Valley and Veep, I would highly suggest checking them out at some point in the near future.  Watch trailers for the next episodes of both after the jump.

Filmmaker Nicholas Stoller set an incredibly high bar for himself by knocking it out of the park with his directorial debut feature Forgetting Sarah Marshall.  The 2008 comedy offered a fantastic blend of incredibly funny, R-rated comedy and serious heart, refusing to shy away from that emotional aspects of Jason Segel’s lead character, which made the story that much more affecting—and funny.  He followed that up with 2010’s rock star comedy Get Him to the Greek and 2012’s more dramatic The Five-Year Engagement, and in between he also co-wrote the scripts for The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted.  But now for his next directorial effort, Stoller ready to tackle an ambitious period piece.

The Star Wars saga doesn’t stop at the six movies.  It’s been able to feed fans for decades with novels, comic books, video games, and TV shows.  However, none of this material will be used when it comes to the upcoming films.  Screenwriter Simon Kinberg, who is working on one of the Star Wars spin-offs as well as the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels, tells IGN, ” You know, it’s not off-limits, and it’s certainly inspiring — I’m working on an animated show for [Lucasfilm] as well, Star Wars: Rebels, that will take inspiration from everywhere, but — I know for the movies, the canon is the canon, and the canon is the six films that exist.”

Just last week, we learned that filmmaker Steven Spielberg was zeroing in on his next directorial effort as he attached himself to yet another potential future project.  At the time, the decision appeared to be down to either the big-budget sci-fi spectacle Robopocalypse or the historical drama Montezuma, which revolves around the relationship between Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes and the titular Aztec ruler.  Well now there appears to be a third contender for Spielberg’s next slot, as Tom Hanks has become attached to star in an untitled Cold War thriller with Spielberg eyeing the pic as a possible directorial vehicle.  More after the jump.
