The first trailer and poster have gone online for director Michael Mohan’s romantic comedy, Save the Date. Starring Lizzy Caplan (Party Down) and Alison Brie (Community) as sisters with drastically different views on marriage, Save the Date explores the familial and romantic bonds that tie us together and what happens when they break apart. The trailer suggests that Save the Date might be just the right movie for those of you who despise typical, trite rom-coms with predictably nauseating endings. It also suggests that it’s a movie to avoid if you despise hipsters.
Save the Date also stars Geoffrey Arend, Martin Starr and Mark Webber and will be available on a variety of online platforms starting November 8th, with a theatrical release beginning December 14th. Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster and synopsis.
American Pie stars Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Mena Suvari, and Shannon Elizabeth all promptly signed on to return for American Reunion, the third Pie sequel. Makes sense: those kids came off the surprise hit with serious heat in 1999, but none has achieved the true stardom that seemed within reach. Writer/directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) added a few new faces to the mix, including Dania Ramirez and Katrina Bowden. According to Variety, Chuck Hittinger (Pretty Little Liars) will represent the new male blood at the East Great Falls High School class reunion. Hittinger plays Marco, “a jock and a bully who takes his girlfriend for granted.” Production is currently underway in Atlanta for an April 6, 2012 release.
Hit the jump for details on Save the Date, an indie romantic comedy that just signed Alison Brie, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, and Geoffrey Arend.

Poor M. Night Shyamalan. After the one-two-three punch that was The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs, the young auteur, once branded the “next Spielberg” by Time Magazine, has endured a painfully long streak of bad-to-terrible films – namely The Village, Lady in the Water, The Happening and The Last Airbender. With the release of Devil he now must face a hard truth – that his best film in years is the one he did not write or direct.
Those duties belong to John Erick Dowdle, the imaginative brain behind 2008’s contrived, but freakishly thrilling Quarantine. Dowdle swoops in and, with the help of screenwriter Brian Nelson – who penned the delicious vampire fest 30 Days of Night and the equally tasty Hard Candy – molds Shyamalan’s basic premise into a 75-minute thriller that never lets up. The swift running time ensures a slick experience – like an extended Twilight Zone episode, Devil cuts through the BS and arrives at its purpose directly. You don’t have time to laugh at the proceedings – you’re too busy racing the film to its dramatic conclusion.
Opening this Friday is Universal’s supernatural thriller Devil. Produced by M. Night Shyamalan, the film stars Chris Messina, Geoffrey Arend, Logan Marshall-Green, Bojana Novakovic, Jenny O’Hara, Bokeem Woodbine, and Jacob Vargas.
As most of you know, the film is about a group of people trapped in an elevator and it turns out one of them is the devil. While I’d love for Devil to be a reason to love Shyamalan again…I’m not giving this film any of my money until at least a few people have told me it’s worth seeing.
But since I know some of you are curious about Devil, Universal has provided us with five clips and you can watch them after the jump. I’m definitely curious if this film is going to open…
About a month ago we posted the first trailer, poster and images from Universal’s supernatural thriller Devil. The film is about a few people trapped in an elevator (with one of them being the Devil) and it stars Chris Messina, Geoffrey Arend, Logan Marshall-Green, Bojana Novakovic, Jenny O’Hara, Bokeem Woodbine, Jacob Vargas and it’s from a story by M. Night Shyamalan. Of course when Universal decided to make Devil, Shyamalan’s name carried more weight. But after The Last Airbender and Lady in the Water, I think Shyamalan’s name on a project is more of a liability than an asset.
But even though his last few films have been disappointments, I dug the trailer for Devil and think the film has a cool concept that if done right, might be pretty cool. Also, Shyamalan only produced the film, as it was directed by John Erick Dowdle. That means it might be good. Anyway, we’ve been given a ton of new images, so hit the jump to check them out. Devil gets released September 17, 2010.
The first trailer, poster and images from Universal’s supernatural thriller Devil have been released. The film stars Chris Messina, Geoffrey Arend, Logan Marshall-Green, Bojana Novakovic, Jenny O’Hara, Bokeem Woodbine, and Jacob Vargas and it’s from a story by M. Night Shyamalan. Of course when Universal decided to make the project, Shyamalan’s name meant more than it does now (The Last Airbender).
Saying that, the trailer for Devil makes it seem like a pretty cool thriller about a group of people trapped in an elevator with the Devil. But I’m not going to be fooled again by anything with M. Night’s name attached to it. From now on, I’m of the opinion everything he does is crap until he makes a good movie. If this works, I’ll take him off my shit list. But if it’s bad….
