Earlier this month, we saw the red-band trailer for The To-Do List, and now the all-audiences trailer has been released. The film stars Aubrey Plaza as a sexually inexperienced teenager with a type-A personality who decides to engage in numerous sex acts before she goes to college. This green-band trailer is basically the red-band trailer but with all of the R-rated material removed. There isn’t much in the way of new jokes, and the ones that are there are kind of disappointing. Perhaps I’m just missing the humor in her ignorance of common sexual terms (it takes place in the 90s, so Urban Dictionary doesn’t exist), and the old joke about someone losing their bathing suit in the pool.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The impressive cast also includes Alia Shawkat, Bill Hader, Donald Glover, Rachel Bilson, Andy Samberg, Johnny Simmons, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Scott Porter. The To-Do List opens July 26th.
CBS Films has released a new red-band trailer for writer/director Maggie Carey‘s comedy The To-Do List. The film stars Aubrey Plaza as a sexually inexperienced teenager with a type-A personality who decides to engage in numerous sex acts before she goes to college. As we saw in the previous trailer, The To-Do List looks like a fantastic starring vehicle for Plaza, and the laughs don’t stop in this new red-band trailer. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a genuinely funny sex comedy, and between the 90s setting and the incredibly talented ensemble cast (Bill Hader, unsurprisingly, is the standout in this trailer), The To-Do List looks like it could be a worthy entry in the genre.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Alia Shawkat, Donald Glover, Rachel Bilson, Andy Samberg, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Scott Porter. The To Do List opens July 26th.

If I had to bet on a sleeper hit this summer, I’d put my money on The To Do List. A sex comedy with an outstanding cast can really do well at the end of the summer (e.g. Superbad), and other than This Is the End, it’s hard to find a better group of comic actors in a movie this year. The film stars Aubrey Plaza as a sexually inexperienced teenager with a type-A personality who decides to engage in numerous sex acts before she goes to college. This clip highlights the benefits of drinking pineapple juice in order to improve the taste of semen. In a missed opportunity, Dole did not provide product placement.
Hit the jump to check out the clip and a few images. The terrific cast also includes Donald Glover, Rachel Bilson, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Scott Porter. The To Do List opens August 16th.
We have plenty of new release dates to pass along:
- Sony Animation scheduled two Genndy Tartakovsky’s projects. The 3D cartoon Popeye that Tartakovsky will direct hits theaters September 26, 2014. The sequel to Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania opens the following year on September 25, 2015.
- Relativity scheduled fellow cartoon Turkeys—featuring the voices of Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Dan Fogler—for a Thanksgiving release on November 14, 2014.
- The Last Exorcism II: The Beginning of the End is dated for March 1, 2013.
- The Aubrey Plaza comedy The To-Do List will move from Valentines Day next year to August 16, 2013. Relativity took advantage of the open slot and moved the Nicholas Sparks adaptation Safe Haven from February 8 back to February 14, 2013.

I have a confession to make: I’ve dropped too much cash on sweet, sweet movie poster prints and frames the last month or so. In addition to my Mondo/Jock The Dark Knight Rises print (which was secured for me by my friend and fellow Collider teammate, Bill Graham), I’ve also picked up Mondo/Phantom City Creative’s The Cabin in the Woods and this little Drive gem by artist Louis Fernando Cruz all in a matter of a few weeks. While I couldn’t be any happier with my purchases (well, I could have stood to pay a little less for The Cabin in the Woods), the truth remains that I’m quickly running out of wall space and disposable income. With all of this in mind, I do have to give a big “thank you” to my wife for tolerating my plans to adorn our house with movie posters. I’ve promised her that my buying flurry will now subside. Unless, of course, someone out there has a Gallery 1988/Rhys Cooper Robocop print they want to part with on the cheap, in which case, I think I have just enough wall space and unaccounted for monies to make one last purchase.
Poster hunting aside, in this week’s edition of the Top 5, I’ve compiled for your reading pleasure our Lawless interviews with Shia LaBeouf, screenwriter/composer Nick Cave, and more, a week filled with rumors surrounding Warner Bros.’ Justice League pic, For a Good Time, Call… video interviews with Ari Graynor, Lauren Miller, and more, a well deserved red-band trailer for The To Do List, and some encouraging, some not so encouraging, news from the set of director Jose Padilha‘s Robocop reboot. A brief recap and link to each awaits after the jump.
The debut red-band trailer for the R-rated comedy The To Do List (previously titled The Hand Job) has landed online, and it’s wonderfully filthy. The film stars Aubrey Plaza as a sexually inexperienced teenager with a type-A personality who decides to engage in numerous sex acts before she goes to college. The trailer is very explicit about said acts, but never veers into “too awkward to watch” territory. Plaza is spot-on as the lead, and she’s buoyed by a ridiculously amazing supporting cast that includes Donald Glover, Rachel Bilson, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Scott Porter. Seriously, this ensemble is stacked and they all look to be bringing their A-game.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer, then make your Valentine’s Day plans accordingly. Written and directed by Maggie Carey, the film opens on February 14th, 2013.
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, actor Andy Samberg spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how he came to be playing the son of Adam Sandler and Susan Sarandon, how much of the comedy was on the page when he initially read it, and keeping the heart with all of the R-rated humor. He also talked about the news that he has officially left Saturday Night Live after seven seasons, what that conversation with executive producer Lorne Michaels was like, his hopes to continue contributing to the show, where he’d like to go next with his career, making another Lonely Island album, how uncomfortable his tight white shorts were for Grown Ups 2, who he’s playing in The To Do List, how excited he is for the release of the animated feature Hotel Transylvania, and the cupcakes at the Magnolia Bakery in New York. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
One of the many films that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was director Colin Trevorrow‘s Safety Not Guaranteed. Written by Derek Connolly, the film’s about a trio of magazine employees investigate a classified ad that seeks a partner for time travel. One employee develops feelings for the paranoid but compelling loner and tries to discover what he’s really up to. It’s based on a real ad that was passed around the internet in 2005 and the movie stars Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson and Karan Soni. Shortly after premiering, FilmDistrict bought the film, so you can look forward to seeing it at some point in the future. For more on the film, you can read Matt’s review.
After seeing the movie, I got to sit down with Aubrey Plaza for an extended interview. We talked about being at Sundance, karaoke, what’s the last video game she’s played (Batman: Arkham City and Braid), 3D gaming, how she got involved in Safety Not Guaranteed and what it’s about, and what it was like to watch the film for the first time with a big crowd at Sundance. In addition, she talked about Parks and Recreation, working with Bill Murray on director Roman Coppola‘s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, and director Maggie Carey‘s The To-Do List (aka The Hand Job), in which she plays a recent high school graduate intent on losing her virginity before going off to college. She said filming some of it bordered on pornography. Hit the jump to watch the interview.
The other day I did a set visit on writer/director Maggie Carey’s The To Do List (formerly titled The Hand Job). The film stars Aubrey Plaza as a sexually inexperienced teenager with a type-A personality who decides to engage in numerous sex acts before she goes to college. The film’s loaded with an amazing cast and sometime down the road, you can expect my set report and on set interviews. It’s definitely a film that should be on your radar.
Anyway, one of the people we spoke to on set was Clark Gregg. While we’re embargoed from reporting what he said about The To Do List, they were fine with us running what he said about his other projects. So after the jump you can read his quotes on how The Avengers has been going, a possible Agent Coulson spinoff movie, Trust Me (his next directing gig which starts shooting this October), Comic-Con, and Tom Hiddleston’s (Loki) favorite Albuquerque restaurant…
The raunchy comedy The To Do List (formerly titled The Hand Job) already has an outstanding cast and now has added two more great names to the list. The Playlist reports that Clark Gregg and Rachel Bilson have signed on to the flick which stars Aubrey Plaza as a sexually inexperienced teenager with a type-A personality who decides to engage in numerous sex acts before she goes to college. Allow me to blow your mind with a rundown of who else is in this film: Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Scott Porter, D.C. Pierson and Dominic Dierkes. The Playlist speculates that Gregg will play the conservative father of Plaza’s character and Bilson will play her older sister.
Written and directed by Maggie Carey, filming is likely to get underway soon before the majority of the cast has to return to their various TV shows.
