Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for director Will Gluck’s new musical adaptation Annie.  The film stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) in the title role as a young, happy, street-tough foster kid living with the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) who is taken in by New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  This international trailer has a few bits of new footage that show Foxx playing things a bit more comedic and loose than some of his past few roles, with one scene in particular evoking his In Living Color days.  I’m still not crazy about the overly auto-tuned nature of the songs, but Gluck’s last two films (Easy A and Friends with Benefits) have been pleasantly surprising, so I’m interested to see how the full feature plays out.

First Red-Band Trailer for SEX TAPE Starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel

Sony Pictures has released the first Sex Tape red-band trailer.  Director Jake Kasdan‘s (Bad Teacher) comedy stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has accidentally been uploaded to the cloud, set out to delete the video from the iPads of their friends and family and ensure that their reputations aren’t ruined.  Segel and Diaz look to have solid chemistry as the lead comedic duo, and it’s promising to see that the film isn’t shying away from its R-rating.  There are a few comedic tropes glimpsed in this trailer that are well-worn territory, but Kasdan certainly has the capacity to go the unexpected route (see: Walk Hard), so hopefully Sex Tape avoids delving into too many cliches.

Hit the jump to watch the debut trailer.  The film also stars Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper, and Rob LoweSex Tape opens on July 25th.

Sony Pictures has unveiled new images from two very different Cameron Diaz films slated for release this year.  First up is director Jake Kasdan’s (Bad Teacher) comedy Sex Tape, which stars Diaz and Jason Segel as a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has been stolen, set out to recover the tape and ensure that their reputations aren’t ruined.  These images give us a first look at the ensemble beyond Diaz and Segel, as we see Rob Lowe, Ellie Kemper, and Rob CorddrySex Tape opens in theaters July 25th.

The other Cameron Diaz film is director Will Gluck’s (Easy A) musical redo Annie, in which Diaz takes on the role of the mean Miss Hannigan.  The young Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) takes on the title role as an orphan who is taken in by a New York mayoral candidate (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  The film’s first trailer promised a few full musical numbers, and these images tease just that.  Annie opens in theaters December 25th.

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for director Will Gluck‘s (Easy A) new musical adaptation Annie.  The redo stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) in the title role as a young, happy, street-tough foster kid living with the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) who is taken in by New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  The film is very clearly a modern day update of the story, as it bears little resemblance to the 1982 film adaptation of the same musical.  Wallis appears to be sufficiently charming in the lead role, and Diaz puts an interesting spin on the mean Miss Hannigan sans drinking habit.  Some of the music is rather heavy on the auto-tune, but all-in-all this looks to be a fairly entertaining musical aimed squarely at families looking for an agreeable holiday movie outing.

Trailer Teaser for ANNIE Starring Quvenzhane Wallis, Jamie Foxx, and Cameron Diaz

The first trailer for the remake of the musical Annie will be headed our way very soon, and a sneak peek has just landed online.  For those unfamiliar with the classic musical, it centers on the eponymous orphan who is adopted by the wealthy Daddy Warbucks.  Quvenzhane Wallis is set to lead the film, and Jamie Foxx will play the Daddy Warbucks character, now called “Benjamin Stacks” and a NYC mayoral candidate in this updated version.  From this brief footage, I like what they’ve done with Annie’s look by translating the original character’s curly red hair to a wild and frizzy style.  I’m looking forward to seeing more of the movie even at the risk of having the songs “Tomorrow” and “Hard Knock Life” stuck in my head for the rest of the week.

First Look at Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz in SEX TAPE

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz “made a sex tape,” and our first preview of the finished product is now online.  The two star in director Jake Kasdan’s (Bad Teacher) upcoming comedy Sex Tape, which revolves around a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has been stolen, set out to recover the tape and ensure that their reputations aren’t ruined.  This first image from the pic gives us a tease of what that sex tape may entail, as Diaz is seen in bed sporting a pair of roller skates (one assumes she’s just really into Boogie Nights).  Segel co-wrote the screenplay with Kasdan and Kate Angelo, and as a big fan of Kasdan’s Walk Hard—not to mention the impressive comedic abilities of Segel and Diaz—I’m very much looking forward to seeing what they’ve cooked up for this new film.  Expect a debut trailer soon.

First Trailer for THE OTHER WOMAN Starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for director Nick Cassavetes’ upcoming comedy The Other Woman.  The film stars Cameron Diaz as a woman who discovers that her boyfriend (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married and sets out trying to get her life back on track.  When she accidentally meets the wife he’s been cheating on (Leslie Mann) and strikes up a friendship, the two team up with yet another one of his affairs (Kate Upton) to plot their mutual revenge.  The film appears to be a bit of a spin on The First Wives Club, but Mann and Diaz both have solid comedic chops and Cassavetes is a pretty versatile director (his filmography ranges from The Notebook to Alpha Dog), so here’s hoping that translates to a solid revenge comedy.

THE COUNSELOR Review

by     Posted 174 days ago

In his crime thriller No Country for Old Men, author Cormac McCarthy’s prose is taut, tense, and doesn’t waste a word.  Unfortunately, his literary style doesn’t translate well to his script for The Counselor or Ridley Scott’s direction.  The film is ostensibly in the same vein as an unforgiving, ruthless crime flick where greedy people get in over their heads, innocents get caught in the crossfire, and only the most ruthless thrive.  This vibrancy fades in and out through the picture, but it’s usually overshadowed by forced, awkward monologues that cut the tension in favor indulgent pontification and dime store philosophy.

Jason Reitman to Write and Direct MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN Adaptation; Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jennifer Garner and Cameron Diaz Circling

With his upcoming directorial feature Labor Day screening in Toronto, news is already breaking about Jason Reitman’s next effort.  It looks like Reitman will write and direct an adaptation of Chad Kultgen’s novel, Men, Women & Children.  Financed by Indian Paintbrush, the film would follow a “family with junior high school students [that] deals with the navigation of sexual awakenings in a digital age where the internet has made pornography, blogs and social networking just a few clicks away.”  None of the parties are locked in at this point, but the possible talent lined up both behind and in front of the camera makes this one worth watching.  Hit the jump for more.

New Images and Poster for Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR Featuring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz

A new batch of images and a fresh poster for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor have landed.  While each of the images features stars Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, and Javier Bardem in their own standalone poses, the new poster frames them altogether.  Perhaps this is intended to establish each of the characters as having strong personalities; or perhaps it’s just a good way to satisfy the actors’ egos.  Either way, Scott has a talented cast who has the benefit of Cormac McCarthy’s tense script to work from, one that centers on a lawyer (Fassbender) who gets in over his head in a drug trafficking attempt gone awry.

Also starring Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran Visnjic,  The Counselor opens on October 25th.  Hit the jump to see the new images and poster.

U.K. Trailer for Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR Starring Michael Fassbender

The U.K. trailer has been released for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor.  The script by Cormac McCarthy (author of The Road and No Country for Old Men) centers on an attorney (Michael Fassbender) who teams with Reiner (Javier Bardem) to sell $20 million worth of cocaine.  This new trailer goes deeper into the plot, and puts an emphasis on drama and character, especially when it comes to the supporting roles played by Penelope Cruz and particularly sinister Cameron Diaz, whose character clearly enjoys playing mind games and dishing out threats.  This is the best trailer so far, and I’m eager to see what Scott has in store.

A new full-length trailer for director Ridley Scott’s upcoming drama The Counselor has been released online.  The script by Cormac McCarthy (author of The Road and No Country for Old Men) centers on an attorney (Michael Fassbender) who teams with Reiner (Javier Bardem) to sell $20 million worth of cocaine.  I had heard the script described as a film comprised of all the strange parts from No Country, and judging by this new trailer that appears to be a fairly accurate description.  There’s plenty of darkness to go around, but also a healthy amount of odd and offbeat moments that make the pic feel fresh.  Though Scott has been a bit hit-and-miss in recent years, it’s hard to imagine The Counselor being disappointing with that cast and McCarthy onboard.

9 New Images from Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR Starring Michael Fassbender

Nine new images have been released for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor. The script by Cormac McCarthy (author of The Road and No Country for Old Men) centers on an attorney (Michael Fassbender) who teams with Reiner (Javier Bardem) to sell $20 million worth of cocaine. The film’s screenwriter and the excellent cast (which also includes Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran Visnjic) are encouraging aspects, but Scott is the wild card, and I’ve learned to keep my expectations in check when it comes to his latest movies.

Cameron Diaz to Play Miss Hannigan in ANNIE Remake After Sandra Bullock Passes

by     Posted 294 days ago

cameron-diaz-slice

We heard earlier this month that Sandra Bullock was in early negotiations to play Miss Hannigan in the Annie remake.  Bullock passed, but director Will Gluck (Easy A) found another star to fill her shoes.  Deadline reports that Cameron Diaz has signed a deal to play the mean owner of the orphanage that shows young Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis) the hard knock life.  Diaz is maybe one step below the Oscar winner, but a fine comic actress nonetheless.  Carol Burnett played Miss Hannigan in the 1982 feature adaptation of the Broadway musical.

Jamie Foxx is set to play the modern Daddy Warbucks, a wealthy New York City mayoral candidate named Benjamin Stacks who adopts Annie.  Jay-Z and Will Smith are on board as producers.  Annie is scheduled for release on December 25, 2014.
