Sony Pictures Animation has released five clips from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. In the follow-up, Swallow Falls is under attack by mutant foods known as “foodimals”, so Flint (Bill Hader), Sam (Anna Faris), Brent (Andy Samberg), Manny (Benjamin Bratt), Earl (Terry Crews), and Steve (Neil Patrick Harris) must contain the creatures before they overrun the planet. I’m going radio silent on the movie since I love the first one, and I like everything I’ve seen from the trailers, so I don’t need more to sell me on this flick. However, if you still need some convincing, these clips are for your viewing please. Also, if you live in Atlanta, you still have a time to enter for a chance to win passes to an early screening.
Hit the jump to check out the clips. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 opens in 3D on September 27th.
There’s no prequel to Blood Ties, but perhaps there should be. It could provide a reason to give a damn about the characters. We could see the development of their conflict, the tension between brothers and the brothers’ tension with their lovers. Instead, Guillaume Canet’s film hits the ground stumbling as the disjointed picture jumps between characters seemingly at random, and never spends enough time to make us care, or wastes time showing just how shallow these horrible people really are. Coated in the veneer of a throwback crime drama, Blood Ties is an insult to its genre, its cast, and its audience.
Last week, we saw the first images from Guillaume Canet‘s Blood Ties, and now the trailer and poster have been released. The story takes place in New York in 1974, and centers on two brothers. One has recently been released from prison, and the other is a cop who is trying to help his brother out only to discover that old habits die hard. It’s weird to see Marion Cotillard trying on a New York accent, but the crime-drama aspect looks good, and there’s definitely a lot of potential here. As for the poster, I really like the 70s-style they’ve used.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars Clive Owen, Matthias Schoenaerts, Mila Kunis, Billy Crudup, James Caan, and Zoe Saldana.
Blood Ties, the new film from Tell No One director Guillaume Canet, is premiering at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and the first eight images from the movie have been released. The story takes place in New York in 1974, and centers on two brothers. One has recently been released from prison, and the other is a cop who is trying to help his brother out only to discover that old habits die hard. The stellar cast includes Clive Owen, Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts, Mila Kunis, Billy Crudup, James Caan, and Zoe Saldana.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The Cannes Film Festival is now underway, so we should expect to hear the buzz on Blood Ties soon.
I love Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and I have high expectations for the upcoming sequel, Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers. Details on the film have been scarce, but now EW is reporting that the plot revolves around Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) and Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) returning to Swallow Falls to clean up the mess created by the FLDSMDFR only to find that food is now taking on the form of mutant beasts. “Magically, every creature is a combination of a food item and an animal that results in just a cringeworthy pun,” says producer Kirk Bodyfelt. As a fan of cringeworthy puns, this makes me even more excited for the flick.
Hit the jump for more. Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers opens in 3D on February 7, 2014.
The raunchy and outrageous comedy That’s My Boy tells the story of Donny Berger (Adam Sandler), an aimless loser who knocked up his smoking hot teacher when he was a teenager, and was left to raise their love child even though he was completely unprepared to be a parent. Now, 30 years later, Todd (Andy Samberg) is all grown up and a successful Wall Street executive who hasn’t seen his father in years. But, with Donny owing tens of thousands to the IRS, he figures that tracking down his son will not only give him the chance to ask for the money he needs to stay out of jail, but to also finally bond with his son.
At the film’s press day, writer/director Sean Anders talked to Collider for this exclusive interview about what made Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg the perfect pairing for this film, what he’d like to see on the DVD, and the collaboration he had with Sandler both in reworking the script and on set during filming. He also talked about signing on to write and direct Three Mississippi (with partner John Morris), about two Philadelphia neighbors whose annual Thanksgiving game of tackle football has become extraordinarily heated, the possibility of a Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler pairing for the film, and the status of the Dumb and Dumber sequel with Jim Carrey. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
A couple of new trailers for the upcoming R-rated comedy That’s My Boy have gone online. The first is a fairly straightforward red-band trailer for the film, and the second is a really funny trailer cut by Andy Samberg himself. The red-band trailer actually has a few genuine laughs, and it reveals that Adam Sandler, who plays Samberg’s estranged father, pretends to be Samberg’s friend throughout some of the film because Samberg told his soon-to-be-in-laws that his dad was dead. More fun, though, is a special trailer for the film that Samberg himself cut. It almost plays like a fake trailer from Funny People, and Samberg appears to know exactly what That’s My Boy looks like from an outside perspective. Though I’m cautious with every Sandler project nowadays given his recent output, I have to admit that these two trailers actually make That’s My Boy seem somewhat appealing.
Hit the jump to watch both NSFW trailers. The film also stars Leighton Meester, James Caan, Milo Ventimiglia, Will Forte and Vanilla Ice. That’s My Boy opens on June 15th.
Eight clips from the new comedy That’s My Boy have gone online. The film stars Adam Sandler as rich party animal who tries to avoid going to jail for tax evasion by getting his estranged and independently-wealthy son (Andy Samberg) to front him the cash to pay back the IRS. What’s more, the dad decides to make this play during the son’s upcoming nuptials. The film marks Sandler’s first R-rated film since 1996’s Bulletproof, and features a supporting cast that includes Leighton Meester, James Caan, Milo Ventimiglia, Will Forte and Vanilla Ice.

Director Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer) tweeted a set photo from behind the scenes of The Amazing Spider-Man today with the tag: “got caption?” So let’s have a little fun with this one. Check out the image, which features star Andrew Garfield and some stunt performers, and come up with your best caption to submit to our comments section (or Webb himself, if you’re feeling brave).
We also have another batch of photos and video of Mila Kunis and Clive Owen from Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties. We’ve already seen Owen propose in these set photos, so I’m happy to see they’re still getting along. The 1970s period picture set in Brooklyn follows two brothers on opposite sides of the law who are caught up in the world of organized crime. Hit the jump to check out the set photos and videos.
Clive Owen and Billy Crudup are set to lead Guillaume Canet‘s crime thriller Blood Ties. Based off the French novel Les liens du sang, Canet’s English-language debut “centers on a younger brother (Crudup) who has to ask his convict older brother (Owen) to go back into the underworld to help out the family.” As we reported back in November, Mark Wahlberg, Zoe Saldana, and Marion Cotillard were circling the picture. In addition to the casting news regarding Owen and Crudup, THR reports that Saldana and Cotillard have signed on along with Mila Kunis and James Caan. Kunis and Cotillard will play love interests. Bullhead star Matthias Schoenaerts has been offered role, and if he signs on, this cast will be even more impressive.
Canet co-wrote the script for Blood Ties with We Own the Night writer-director James Gray. For those unfamiliar with Canet, I strongly recommend checking out this 2006 mystery flick Tell No One. If the financing on Blood Ties comes together, filming will begin in April in New York.
Small Apartments deserves credit for getting inside your head through force of strangeness alone, and it has enough going on to merit at least some kind of interpretation. You can argue with yourself to no end about whether or not director Jonas Åkerlund has made a subversive slam against trying to find human connection when our own baggage shuts us off from the world, or if he’s delivered a pat, mawkish ending that doesn’t fit with previous moments of derision towards sentiment. Rather than leave your head spinning, Small Apartments just leaves your head aching.
The red-band trailer for the R-rated comedy That’s My Boy (previously titled “I Hate You Dad“) has gone online. The film stars Adam Sandler as rich party animal who tries to avoid going to jail for tax evasion by getting his estranged and independently-wealthy son (Andy Samberg) to front him the cash to pay back the IRS. The jerk-off dad decides to make this play during the son’s upcoming nuptials and chaotic hilarity ensues.
There are two surprising things about this trailer. First, this is Sandler’s first R-rated comedy since 1996′s Bulletproof. Second, I chuckled a few times during this trailer, which doesn’t make sense since I can’t remember the last time an Adam Sandler movie made me do that. Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer. The film also stars Leighton Meester and James Caan. That’s My Boy opens June 15th.
Tony Kaye made a big splash in 1998 with his directorial debut American History X. He has kept busy in the years since, but maintained a low profile. That could change with his new film Detachment. The cast will bring name recognition to the film: veterans Adrien Brody, James Caan, Christina Hendricks, Lucy Liu, Marcia Gay Harden, Bryan Cranston, William Petersen, Blythe Danner, Tim Blake Nelson are joined by fresh faces like Betty Kaye and Sami Gayle. Tribeca Films acquired the film in September, and has released trailers and clips over the last month that stand out from the vast collection of promotional material we host here at Collider. The story follows a substitute teacher (Brody) on assignment at a failing public school. The appeal of Detachment is in the execution, so hit the jump for trailers, clips, posters, and images from the film.
We’ve got quite a few casting stories for you today. First up, Susan Sarandon has joined the cast of the Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg comedy I Hate You Dad. The comedy revolves around a father who moves in with his son and his son’s fiancé just before they’re about to get married, with Leighton Meester set to play Samberg’s fiancée. THR reports that in addition to Sarandon, Will Forte, Milo Ventimiglia, Eva Amurri (Californication), Blake Clark, Meagan Fay (Party Down), Tony Orlando, Dan Patrick and previously announced James Caan are all in negotiations to join the Sean Anders-directed comedy. Sarandon will play a sexy teacher who is the mother of Samberg’s character.
Additionally, Jennifer Hudson is the latest actor to join the cast of the Farrelly brothers’ The Three Stooges. The film stars Will Sasso as Curly, Sean Hayes as Larry, Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, Jane Lynch, Larry David, Stephen Collins and Craig Bierko. Deadline reports that Hudson will play Sister Rosmary at the orphanage that the Stooges are raised. Lynch and David play two other (presumably evil) nuns at the orphanage. The Three Stooges is currently filming. Hit the jump for the casting news of Johnny Knoxville and a lot more in Fun Size and Seth Green, Michelle Trachtenberg, Katee Sackhoff, Harold Perrineau and Billy Baldwin in Sexy Evil Genius.
The Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg comedy I Hate You Dad may have just found an Academy Award nominee to join the cast. The Wrap reports that Colombia Pictures is looking at grabbing James Caan for a role in the film. The plot revolves around a father who moves in with his son and his son’s fiancé just before they’re about to get married.
Sean Anders and John Morris (Hot Tub Time Machine) are set to direct the comedy from a script by David Case, which subsequently got a rewrite by Ken Marino and David Wain (Role Models).
