Spy - Teaser Trailer


Susan Cooper works as an analyst for the CIA; rarely out where the action is and working entirely from the office, advising some of the organisation's top agents during their most deadly assignments. However, following a serious lapse in judgement at the hands of her partner during a bomb disposal mission, the agency are forced to enlist another member of the team to uncover the location of the nuclear weapon. Deciding now is the time to drop her boring persona and become the super keen spy she always wanted to be, Susan volunteers to go undercover - to much derision from her colleagues who barely know her name let alone her position in the CIA. She's allowed to prove herself on the task though, with no appropriate alternative, but can she show that Susan Cooper is just as deadly as her team?

St. Vincent Review


Excellent

Bill Murray shines in this story of a cynical grump whose life is changed by his friendship with a bright young kid. Writer-director Theodore Melfi makes an assured debut with this hilariously astute, emotional punchy drama, which may sometimes feel a bit over-planned but gives the audience plenty to think about. And along with Murray, the film has especially strong roles for Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts and promising newcomer Jaeden Lieberher.

It's set in a New York suburb, where the neighbourhood grouch Vincent (Murray) is already having a bad day when he discovers meets the perky family next door: Maggie (McCarthy) and her curious son Oliver (Lieberher). She has just fled from her unfaithful husband (Scott Adsit) and is working extra hours to make ends meet, so she reluctantly agrees to let Oliver stay at Vincent's house after school. Intriguingly, Oliver is one of the few people Vincent can bear to be around, aside from the pregnant Russian stripper Daka (Watts) and his lively cat Felix. And Oliver is like a sponge, happily soaking up Vincent's knowledge about things like swearing, fighting and betting on the horses. Oliver has no real idea that all of this makes Vincent a seriously unsuitable role model.

Yes, the central point is that good people are sometimes hard to spot. Vincent may smoke, swear, gamble and hang out with hookers, but he also has a deep soul that Oliver witnesses in the way he takes care of Daka, or how he regularly visits his wife in a nursing home even though she has long forgotten who he is. Melfi makes the most of this perspective, seeing everything through the eyes of perceptive young actor Lieberher. And Murray shines in a role that adds clever shadings to the actor's usual on-screen bluster. The interaction between Oliver and Vincent snaps with personality, and sharp roles for McCarthy and Watts offer meaningful wrinkles, as do other side characters such as Chris O'Dowd's schoolteacher.

Continue reading: St. Vincent Review

St. Vincent - Clips


Vincent is living a life of hedonism in his retirement from the army. An avid smoker and drinker with few friends save for nightclub dancer Daka, he's hardly what you'd call a friendly neighbour. Nonetheless, a recently divorced Maggie has moved in nearby with her impressionable young son Oliver and she is desperate for a babysitter. Never one to judge a book by its cover, she enlists Vincent to take care of him while she's at work, and while he's not cut out to deal with children realistically, he could really do with the cash. Oliver learns a lot from Vincent, who pays him to cut his lawn and who helps him overcome his bulllies at his new school, while Vincent also learns a little from his new friend, who unwittingly shows him that there's a lot more left in life for him to enjoy.

Nick Offerman Has Directed A Music Video And It's Full Of Celebrities


Nick Offerman Michael Shannon Melissa McCarthy Conan O'Brien Chance the Rapper

He's best known for playing the grumpy breakfast loving Ron Swanson on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation', but Nick Offerman has turned his hand to another profession: music video director. He's overseen the delightfully weird video for Tweedy's song, 'Low Key', which also features a host of celebrity cameos.

 
Nick Offerman
It's a different gig for the actor, usually seen in front of the camera

Tweedy is the latest project from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, comprised of himself and his son Spencer Tweedy. 'Low Key' is the first single from their first album, 'Sukierae', and the offbeat video shows them going door-to-door in attempts to sell their record to disinterested members of the public. Man of Steel actor Michael Shannon features as the assistant of the record label boss, whilst Melissa McCarthy, Conan O'Brien, Andy Richter and Chance the Rapper feature amongst the bemused homeowners who are visited by the band. There's also a very strange twist at the end of the video, but we won't ruin the surprise!

How Sandra Bullock Became The Highest Paid Actress In Hollywood


Sandra Bullock Alfonso Cuaron George Clooney Melissa McCarthy Robert Downey Jr

The results of Forbes annual celebrity rich list are in and it is with a certain amount of surprise thatSandra Bullockwas the highest paid film star of the past year. Bullock raked in over $51 million (that just over £30 million) and it seems that the 50 year-old has made some very shrewd decisions over the past years over which films she attached her name to, and not all of them looked like sure-fire box-office smashes, on paper at least.

Sandra Bullock At The DGA Awards
Sandra's box-office success has exerted a gravitational pull on all cash in her vicinity.

Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuaron and also starring George Clooney, cost a whopping $100 million to produce thanks to its almost exclusive reliance on extensive special effects. Yet the film excelled with audiences and critics alike, scooping seven Oscars as well as a host of BAFTA’s. Bullock also duly received an Oscar nomination for her role as the astronaut caught in a potentially catastrophic disaster in Earth’s orbit. Gravity drew $716 million in global box-office takings, awarding Bullock and co-star Clooney a tidy sum for their efforts which included a gruelling shooting experience whereupon the leading duo were suspended from wires and trapped in claustrophobic space suits.

St. Vincent Trailer


St. Vincent de Van Nuys is a broke former soldier with a serious alcohol and gambling habit. He has few friends apart from nightclub dancer Daka, but that's all about to change when some new neighbours arrive. Maggie and her young son Oliver have moved in, with the latter feeling a little alienated as one of the only Jewish kids at school as well as being smaller than everyone else. Vincent decides to take him under his wing in a bid to earn a little more cash as a babysitter, and Oliver soon warms to him despite his hedonistic life and generally poor childminding skills. Maggie is unhappy that Vincent is introducing him to strip clubs, dingy bars and the racetrack, but it soon becomes clear that Oliver is exactly what Vincent needs to finally get his life on track.

‘Tammy’ Proves No Match For ‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’ At 4th Of July Box Office


Mark Wahlberg Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy’s road-trip comedy Tammy, has failed to topple the mighty Transformers: Age of Extinction at the US Independence Day box office.

Mark Wahlberg in Transformers Age of ExtinctionMark Wahlberg has continued his command of the US box office

The Michael Bay directed blockbuster, which has earned negative reviews from critics, grossed $10.6 million at the US box office on Friday, while McCarthy’s Tammy only managed $6.4 million. So far this summer, Transformers: Age of Extinction is the only movie to hold the number one spot at the stateside box office for two weeks straight.

Reviews: Melissa McCarthy Goes All Out In "Tammy", But Is It Enough For The Critics?


Melissa McCarthy Ben Falcone

Melissa McCarthy’s Tammy is set to battle it out at the box office this weekend, but the critics have already made short work of the female-driven slapstick comedy. The film sees the title character get her janky Toyota Corolla wrecked in an accident, which leads to a spiral of bad luck – her lateness causes her to lose her fast food joint job and then she comes home early enough to catch her beau cheating. Tammy must make some important life changes and she decides on the ultimate life-changer (in movies, anyway) – a spontaneous road trip.

Melissa McCarthy
Melissa McCarthy finally got her own film, but the critics seem largely unimpressed.

As usual, McCarthy is a force to be reckoned with, but is that enough to save Tammy’s overall score?

Tammy Review


Weak

Melissa McCarthy is clearly in a rut: the title character in this film isn't very far removed from her previous roles in The Heat and Identity Thief. Yes, Tammy is another chubby slob who is on the road to some sort of epiphany, and along the way she realises that simply running a comb through her ratty hair might make her look more human. At least the film has a seriously strong supporting cast who almost make it worth a look.

Tammy (McCarthy) is sacked from her job at a fast-food outlet on the same day she discovers that her husband (Faxon) is having a fling with a neighbour (Tony Collette). In a childish rage, she runs home to her parents (Allison Janney and Dan Aykroyd) and then decides to keep running, taking her grandmother Pearl (Sarandon) along for the ride. Pearl has a dream to see Niagara Falls before she dies, but she's just about as immature as Tammy is, so they immediately start getting into trouble. Their antics include a series of incidents involving a jet-ski, flirting and more with a father and son (Gary Cole and Mark Duplass), robbing a burger joint and attending a raucous 4th of July party at the home of Pearl's wealthy cousin (Kathy Bates).

Tammy is even less worldly wise than McCarthy's previous variations on the character: she has never even attempted to grow up, so reacts to everything like a toddler. Aside from not being remotely funny, this is deeply annoying from the start. And even the characters around her don't laugh - they roll their eyes in exasperation. Then after establishing her as a relentless loser who brings misfortune on herself, the script (written by McCarthy and her real-life husband Ben Falcone, who also directs and appears as Tammy's boss) contrives to make Tammy sympathetic by portraying her as some sort of a victim. Meanwhile, she of course slowly begins to look less cartoonish simply because she changes her shirt and takes a shower along the way.

How Are The Critics Reacting To Melissa McCarthy’s ‘Tammy’?


Melissa McCarthy

We loved her in Bridesmaids, but now Melissa McCarthy is taking center stage as Tammy, a down on her luck former fast food employee, who turns fugitive and hits the road with her grandmother. Tammy’s grandmother happens to played by Susan Sarandon, while Kathy Bates and Alison Janney also co-star. But despite the impressive cast and McCarthy’s charm, the critics just don’t seem to be warming to Tammy ahead of the big 4th of July weekend.

Tammy
Melissa McCarthy takes center stage in Tammy

Written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, who also takes the director’s chair, Tammy was supposedly meant to be the perfect showcase for the comedienne’s talents. Since her breakout Bridesmaids role, McCarthy’s screen presences has continued to grow. She’s taken co-leading roles with Sandra Bullock and Jason Bateman in The Heat and Identity Theft, but Tammy is the first time she’s been given a solo top billing.

Tammy - Trailer And Clips


When Tammy is late for work following an unlikely road accident, she is fired from her job at Toppy Jacks fast food restaurant. And that's just the icing on the cake when she gets home to find that her husband has been sleeping with their neighbour. With nowhere to stay, she decides to take a road trip to Niagara Falls, but first she needs to borrow the car from her mother. When she refuses, the only person left to turn to is her alcoholic and diabetic grandmother Pearl who, unfortunately for Tammy, also happens to have an adventurous streak and wants to come along for the ride. The journey is, predictably, full of serious hitches. Not only does Pearl get arrested, but Tammy gets into some serious trouble with the police after she attempts an 'armed' robbery on a nearby Toppy Jacks, crashes a speedboat on the side of a lake and nearly runs some sightseers over in a nature park. It's no smooth ride, but it could be the perfect bonding experience.

'Tammy' is a hilarious new comedy serving as main star Melissa McCarthy's ('The Heat', 'Bridesmaids') first venture into film writing. It co-stars and has been co-written and directed by her husband Ben Falcone in his directorial debut and it is scheduled for UK release on July 4th 2014.

Melissa McCarthy Shines In First Indie Project, "Tammy"


Melissa McCarthy Kathy Bates Allison Janney Susan Sarandon

Melissa McCarthy’s star has risen rather rapidly over 2013 and 2014, with the world finally catching on to the comedienne’s brilliance. Now, despite a whole load of stupid that she has to deal with on the regular – a quick look at the message boards on her IMDB page proves it’s quite a lot – McCarthy now has both the time and the influence to work on her own pet projects.

Melissa McCarthy Discusses Snooty Dress Designers And Fame


Melissa McCarthy Ben Falcone

Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy has revealed that a string of designers refused to design award show dresses for her. The actress told Redbook, “Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers. Very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people, and they all said no.”

McCarthy, who is the cousin of actress Jenny McCarthy, began acting in 1997 when she made an appearance on the latter’s self-titled NBC comedy series. Between 2000-2007 she worked on Gilmore Girls, in which she appeared as Sookie St. James. It was this role that first gained her recognition.

Melissa McCarthy Says Oscar Dress Designer Rejection Inspired Own Plus-Size Line


Melissa McCarthy Ben Falcone

Melissa McCarthy has revealed that she was once persistently snubbed by designers when she requested that they make Oscars-style ball gowns for her. The Bridesmaids actress manages to pull it out of the bag with inspiring ensembles at every red carpet event she attends but has revealed fashion designers' rather uninspiring attitude towards plus-size creation.

"Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me," the 43-year-old actress told Redbook in the July cover story. "I asked five or six designers, very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people, and they all said no."

Melissa said that her ongoing struggle to find clothes that both fit and flatter prompted her to go into fashion herself and begin designing a plus-size clothes, including her indigo 2011 Emmys dress. "Trying to find stuff that's still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible," the actress has told THR. "It's either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle." "[I] always thought I would design women's clothing," she said.

Alice Dellal And Jemima Kirke? Famous People We Never Knew Were Related


Jemima Kirke Alice Dellal Bryce Dallas Howard Ron Howard Daisy Lowe Gavin Rossdale Jenny McCarthy Melissa McCarthy

Who knew that Brazilian Chanel model Alice Dellal was cousins with Jemima Kirke AKA Jessa from Girls?! Well, she bloomin’ well is! Dellal recently posted a video on her Instagram account of the pair dancing about in their underpants to the Jackson 5, along with the caption ‘Jemima gets “grounded” so we stay in and dance to jackson5’. We guess this must be a pretty old video if the 28 year old mother of two was “grounded”, the pair also look fairly young; however, we can still imagine Jemima jumping around in her underwear these days, so we just don't know!  We have to admit, now that we’ve seen the pair together we can’t believe we didn’t put two and two together before, they look totally similar!

It turns out that half of the celeb world is actually related. Well, you know what they say, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know! Alice and Jemima aren’t the only famous cousins in the biz, we bet you didn’t know that Jenny McCarthy and Melissa McCarthy were related. In fact, Melissa’s first appearance on television was opposite her cousin in the NBC series Jenny.

Tammy's life seems to have just become an unfortunate string of events having been dismissed from her job at fast food joint Toppy Jacks and discovered that her husband has been having an affair with the neighbour. Now penniless and virtually homeless, Tammy decides to set out on a road trip to Niagara Falls. Her mother down the street refuses to lend her the car, however, and she is forced to beg a favour from her diabetic but resolutely alcoholic grandmother Pearl. Unfortunately for Tammy, Pearl wants to come along for the ride, and after finding out that Pearl has enough money to provide for them both on the way, Tammy accepts - even if it means becoming her grandmother's personal carer. It's by no means a smooth ride, with Pearl getting arrested and Tammy trying to rob a Toppy Jacks, but it could change both their lives forever.

Leonardo DiCaprio And Jonah Hill 'Titanic' Re-Enactment Buzz Refuses To Die Down [Video]


Leonardo Dicaprio Jonah Hill Michael Cera Melissa McCarthy

The Grammy Awards may have dominated the entertainment news from the weekend but one story is refusing to die down. Jonah Hill and Leonardo Dicaprio has Saturday Night Live audiences in stitches last Saturday when the Wolf of Wall Street co-stars decided to re-enact the iconic prow scene from Titanic. Hill returned to SNL on the 25th January to host the show for the third time.

With the comedy actor's newly found Oscar-nominated star power, his hosting alone would have probably been enough for the enthusiastic crowd but when DiCaprio dropped by, interrupting Hill mid-flow in his intro speech, excitement was sent into overdrive. "Honestly, my whole life feels like a dream come true right now," Hill said in his opening monologue. "Between 'Moneyball' and 'Wolf of Wall Street' and getting nominated for my second Academy Award, I just couldn't be more grateful."

Champion Of Positive Body Image Lena Dunham Responds To Vogue Cover Controversy


Lena Dunham Melissa McCarthy Gabourey Sidibe Mindy Kaling Jennifer Lawrence

More and more attention has been brought to magazines’ rampant retouching of stars on their covers – Melissa McCarthy, Gabourey Sidibe, Mindy Kaling and even Jennifer Lawrence have been retouched beyond recognition in recent months. The most recent victim of this trend is Lena Dunham, who graces the cover of this month’s Vogue.

Lena Dunham, Girls UK Premiere
The creator of Girls was confused by the backlash against her Vogue shots.

The situation is made even more complicated by the fact that Dunham advocates and writes about body positivity and self acceptance. It’s no surprise then, that her edited cover made a big splash online.

Teen Choice Awards List Nominees Anounced: The Usual Suspects


Katy Perry Leonardo Dicaprio Channing Tatum Hugh Jackman Johnny Depp Robert Downey Jr Sandra Bullock Gwyneth Paltrow Jennifer Aniston Melissa McCarthy Scarlett Johansson

It’s that time of the year again – time for the most important awards of the season, the People’s Choice Awards (wink, wink, nudge, nudge.) This year the favorites are easy to pick out from the crowd. The award show will be held in January and today was the day that the nominees were finally announced.

Katy Perry
The super successful Katy Perry is the favorite in several musical categories.

In the world of TV, Glee is the favorite, with eight nominations, proving that nothing can keep this show down. That may or may not be a good thing. Meanwhile, Katy Perry seems to be the people’s favorite when it comes to music. The Roar singer has nabbed five nods. Coincidentally, that’s also Sandra Bullock’s number. The Gravity actress heads up the movie division.

Melissa McCarthy Sports Trench Coat On The Cover Of Elle, Internet In Uproar


Melissa McCarthy Penelope Cruz Reese Witherspoon Naomie Harris Marion Cotillard

Melissa McCarthy is covering this month’s issue of Elle magazine, following a year of career successes. The other five women included in the annual Women in Hollywood issue are Penelope Cruz, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Harris, Shailene Woodley and Marion Cotillard. The problem with this lineup is that, while all of the other women were photographed in form-fitting, rather revealing dresses, crop tops, bodysuits and the like, McCarthy’s cover shows her wearing a bulky trench coat in what is a very “editorial” look, but at the same time, makes it seem like the comedienne is getting a different treatment to her peers because of her size. There are, of course, other problems with the issue as well, such as the fact that only one actress out of the lineup is a woman of colour.

Melissa McCarthy, The Heat Premiere
The trenchcoat does seem to fit in with McCarthy's usual style.

Despite some commenters interpreting it this way, according to McCarthy’s reps, the actress picked out the outfit herself – surely there could be no objection to that. For her part, the actress isn’t offended by the stylistic choice and, in fact, feels delighted to have taken part in the shoot."

Poor Pacific Rim: Is Sandler's Soaring 'Grown Ups 2' The Worst Movie...Ever?


Adam Sandler Guillermo Del Toro Disney Sandra Bullock Melissa McCarthy Russell Brand Steve Carell

Yeah, we had a feeling this might happen. The $190 million budget of Pacific Rim is seemingly looking further away than ever after Guillermo Del Toro's blockbuster took just $38.3 million on its box-office debut over the weekend. The Idris-Elba starring movie - which courted mainly negative reviews - is now on course to become a loss making movie for Thomas Tull's Legendary Pictures.

As expected, it was the superb Despicable Me 2 that maintained the No.1 spot on its second weekend, grossing $44.8 million for a domestic total of $229.2 million and establishing itself as one of the success stories of the year. The animated flick featuring the voices of Russell Brand and Steve Carell also topped the global box office for the weekend with $100.5 million in ticket sales, Pacific Rim followed with $91.3 million. 

Sony executives will have been jumping for joy on Sunday, with news that Adam Sandler's comedy sequel Grown Ups 2 opened to a stellar $42.5 million domestically. In fact, Sony were so happy they released a cheery statement for us all to read, via the Hollywood Reporter:

Critics may have universally panned Adam Sandler's latest comedic contribution yet it's somehow managed to beat the other new release, Pacific Rim, in the US Weekend Box Office (12th-14th July). Despicable Me 2 topped the Box Office charts for the second week in a row.

The Heat's Wave Of Reviews Is Hardly Warm - Melissa McCarthy And Sandra Bullock Play It Safe


Melissa McCarthy Sandra Bullock Michael Caine Demian Bichir Michael Rapaport Marlon Wayans Jane Curtin

Critical reviews of The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, have been more lukewarm than scolding.

Sandra Bullock plays Sarah Ashburn, an FBI agent incapable of having fun (sounds familiar?), who is paired up with rotund police officer Shannon Mullins, played by Melissa McCarthy (again –does this remind you of everything?) 

In fact, throw in a camp Michael Caine and an awkward ginger haired English actor and voilà! You have a bizarre combination of Miss Congeniality and Hot Fuzz

Melissa McCarthy Responds (At Last) To Critic Who Called Her A "Hippo" And "Tractor-Sized"


Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy will be the first to admit that she doesn't exactly adhere to the usual conventions of a Hollywood leading lady, but when someone directly and harshly pokes fun at her weight you can bet that she won't take the jibes lying down. That has been the case of one New York Observer reviewer who described the actress as "tractor-sized" and being a "hippo" in a review about her film Identity Thief back in February this year, with the actress (finally) hitting back at the critic.

Critic Rex Reed made his review of McCarthy's recent film a little more personal that others, describing the Bridesmaids star as "tractor-sized” and “a gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success."

In the time between then and now a number of people have lambasted on Reed's harsh comments, but it wasn't until this week, during an interview with the New York Times, that McCarthy herself got to give Reed a piece of her mind. Whilst being interviewed about her part in the new buddy-cop movie The Heat (in which she stars alongside Sandra Bullock), the in-demand actress said, “I felt really bad for someone who is swimming in so much hate. I just thought, that’s someone who’s in a really bad spot, and I am in such a happy spot. I laugh my head off every day with my husband and my kids who are mooning me and singing me songs.”

The Hangover Part III Review


Bad

For the final instalment of the trilogy, filmmaker Todd Phillips takes a sharp left turn, abandoning the formula of the first two movies to send the Wolf Pack on a road thriller that isn't remotely funny. A few wacky moments are provided by the actors, but there isn't one punchline in the entire film. And it doesn't really work as a thriller either, since there's no real suspense.

Once again it starts in Los Angeles, where everyone has recovered from their antics in Bangkok. But Phil, Stu and Doug (Cooper, Helms and Bartha) are worried that Alan (Galifianakis) is refusing to grow up, so they hold an intervention and set out to drive him to a desert retreat. On the way, they're waylaid by mobster Marshall (Goodman), who holds Doug hostage to force the the Wolf Pack to find renegade nutcase Chow (Jeong), who has stolen Marshall's stash of gold bars. They track Chow to Mexico, but things quickly get even messier as Chow slips through their fingers. And to catch him, they'll have to return to the scene of their original adventure: Las Vegas.

There isn't much to the screenplay, which is a series of action scenes and caper-style set-pieces strung together with rapid-fire dialog and general vulgarity. But while the film is expertly shot and edited, with a solid cast and terrific settings, there simply isn't any actual humour. No one gets drunk, so there's no hangover this time. And the only amusing moments are offhanded character bits that are utterly irrelevant to the nonsensical chaos of the plot. Which kind of makes us wonder why we ever found these losers so hilarious to begin with.

Sandra Bullock Promotes 'The Heat' At CinemaCon, Director Paul Feig Expresses Support For Boston


Sandra Bullock Melissa McCarthy Paul Feig

Paul Feig, director of the upcoming cop flick “The Heat”, starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock, expressed his support for Boston and its citizens, following the marathon bombing earlier this week.

Feig, whose upcoming flick is set in Boston, praised the resilience of bostonions, saying: "If any city had to get through adversity, this is the city to do it" during a talk at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. His mention of the attack was one of few at the convention. The other one was made by Chris Pine, prior to the screening of “Star Treck Into Darkness” on Monday. Pine’s statement aimed to draw a parallel between the bombings and the plot of his upcoming movie, in which a terrorist attack is executed against “Starfleet”. "Terrorism is a big part of our lives," Pine said.

Feig’s “The Heat” has been eagerly anticipated ever since the first trailer was released. As an addition to the “buddy cop” sub-genre, it puts somewhat of a fresh twist on the story, by making the main characters female. Despite the grim comment before the screening, the film itself was received very well by the initial audience. “The Heat” is due for official release across US theatres on June 28th.

Watch 'The Heat' trailer below!

The Hangover III Trailer


Alan Garner is going through real emotional trauma when his beloved father passes away. Following the funeral, his friends Stu, Phil and Doug decide to take him back to Las Vegas to recuperate with the hope that previous experience and lack of upcoming weddings will prevent them from getting into any major trouble again with gangs or escaped wild animals. However, that hope is soon shattered when they are jumped by a brutal gang who demand to know where they can find their flamboyant gangster friend Leslie Chow who has allegedly stole $21 million dollars. As expected, the Wolfpack end up in enormous, but hilarious, trouble yet again which leads them to question their friendship ties and vacation choices. Will the foursome survive Sin City this time round? And will Alan find the peace he's looking for?

The Wolfpack returns in the last instalment of this side-splitting trilogy. Academy Award nominated director Todd Phillips ('Road Trip', 'Due Date') returns once more with the co-writer from 'Part II', Craig Mazin ('Identity Thief', 'Superhero Movie', 'Scary Movie 4'). It looks to be a spectacular end to the film series as the foursome's previous alcohol-fuelled vacations come back to haunt them. It is scheduled for release in UK cinemas on May 24th 2013.

The Hangover Part III - Teaser Trailer


Stu, Phil, Alan and Doug return to Las Vegas in the hilarious third instalment of 'The Hangover' movie series. Nobody's getting married this time, but if you think the absence of a bachelor party will calm this lot down, you are so wrong. Following the events of 'The Hangover' which saw them get attacked by gangsters, mauled by a tiger, tasered by cops and inadvertently married, and of course the events of 'The Hangover Part II' which took them to Thailand where they got tattooed, shot by Russian mobsters and had sex with transgender hookers, the conclusion to this trilogy doesn't look to fare much better as these wild boys set out for one last mayhem-fuelled weekend in Sin City.

Second Time Around: Melissa McCarthy To Host 'Saturday Night Live' In April


Melissa McCarthy Justin Timberlake

One of Hollywood’s most sought-after comic actresses is set to host Saturday Night Live once more. Melissa McCarthy is rumored to be hosting the show in April, according to Us Weekly. It’s the second time in two years that the Bridesmaids star has taken on the hosting duties for the high profile chat show and she’ll be reappearing on our screens on April 6, 2013.

The Oscar-nominated comic star has been in the cinemas recently with Identity Thief, which defied the seriously negative response that it got from movie critics, to top the box office charts on its release. Also starring Jason Bateman, the movie is a comic caper about a con-woman (McCarthy) who steals a man’s identity (Bateman) and subsequently threatens his chances of a work promotion. He manages to track her down and a battle of wills commences. McCarthy’s career began when she worked for an improv troupe in Los Angeles. Her debut Saturday Night Live stint in October got rave reviews and it’s likely that the loveable actress will do the same this time around.

A Good Day To Die Hard - Not Dead Yet As Bruce Willis Tops The Box Office


Bruce Willis Melissa McCarthy

No longer a solid trilogy, the Die Hard franchise now boasts a quintet of films with arrival of A Good Day To Die Hard. And while many critics denounced the film as rubbish, plans are to make a 6th. And why wouldn’t you if you keep topping the box office?

A round $25m saw the latest Bruce Willis action bonanza shoot to the top spot, but it’s not as if it was surrounded by critically acclaimed films – far from it. Second was Identity Thief, starring Melissa McCarthy, which managed a paltry 24% on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. That didn’t stop it from accumulating over $23m over the weekend, though. Another film with a derisory review score (13% to be exact), Safe Haven managed 3rd in the box office with a touch over $21m. All we can confidently surmise from these figures is that a lot of people have seen a lot of bad films this weekend.

Escape From Planet Earth, as you probably guessed, also didn’t fair too well with the critics, but as a silly kids film, claims redemption from the rest. It came in 4th with $16m. And what’s this? A film with a decent review score? It is! Warm Bodies - last week at #2 drops down to fifth position with $9m on its third week of release. There’s your top 5 box office films this weekend, now scram!

This Is 40 Review


Very Good

This overlong comedy is so episodic that watching it is exactly like sitting through five episodes of a sitcom back-to-back. It's funny and enjoyable, with characters we enjoy watching, but they continually spiral back to where they started, and in the end we feel like there's been a lot of fuss about nothing. Even so, the script offers plenty of hilarious observational humour, and the cast is thoroughly entertaining.

Reprising their roles from Knocked Up, Rudd and Mann play Debbie and Pete, who turn 40 within a week of each other. But Debbie isn't coping very well with it, and her emotions swing wildly from steamy lust to fiery rage while Pete just tries to hang on. Their daughters (played by Apatow and Mann's real daughters Maude and Iris) each have their own issues to stir into the mix. And then Pete's needy father (Brooks) turns up with problems of his own, forcing Debbie to think about her own distant father (Lithgow). Meanwhile, the economic crunch is causing problems for both of their businesses.

Yes, both of them own businesses. This is not the typical struggling 40-something couple, so it's not easy to sympathise with many of their issues. Fortunately, Apatow's dialog is packed with brazen honesty and an appreciation for rude gags that keep us laughing even in the absence of an actual storyline we can get involved in (although there's one major plot point along the way). Rudd and Mann were arguably the best thing in Knocked Up, so it's great to let them take the spotlight here, making the most of their sparky interaction. And aside from experts like Brooks and Lithgow, there is a continual stream of superb side roles, including Fox as Debbie's oversexed and possibly embezzling employee and McCarthy as a furious school parent (her big scene is expanded into a brilliantly improvised outtake riff in the closing credits).

Hot Tickets! US Movie Releases: Will Tom Cruise Make Or Break 'Jack Reacher'? Is 'This Is 40' As Good As 'Knocked Up'?


Tom Cruise Judd Apatow Paul Rudd Melissa McCarthy Megan Fox Ewan McGregor Naomi Watts Kristen Stewart Amy Adams Sam Riley Viggo Mortensen Kirsten Dunst

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is riding high in the US box office charts (way higher than its nearest competitor, Rise of the Guardians) this week and it’s unlikely that will change, though there are at least two releases this weekend that have been causing a stir. Tom Cruise stars in Jack Reacher – the adaptation of the Lee Child novel and This Is 40, the new comedy from Judd Apatow; a sequel to the popular comedy Knocked Up.

Some fans of Lee Child’s novels questioned the decision to cast Tom Cruise in the title role of Jack Reacher. He was, after all, originally on board as a producer only but after reading the script, it seems, he decided he’d like to have a go at starring in the movie too. It looks as though the gamble has just about paid off, as long as you enter the movie theatre with the understanding that what you are about to see is very much A Tom Cruise Movie, with Tom Cruise in standard Tom Cruise “cool and calculating” mode, as described by Betsy Sharkey of Los Angeles Times.

So far, the reviews are just about erring on the side of positive, with an aggregate of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes. Let’s face it, Tom Cruise’s rep has hardly had an easy ride this year and this is hardly challenging new ground for the Mission Impossible star, who has frequented many a steely action thriller of late. However, many reviewers have surmised that really, it’s Cruise that makes this movie. “This is Cruise’s show. And he nails it,” says Peter Travers of Rolling Stone. One for the Cruise fans, then. Wherever you are.

Sandra Bullock And Melissa McCarthy Hit Up Disneyland!


Sandra Bullock Melissa McCarthy Alfonso Cuaron George Clooney

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy were snapped wandering around Disneyland on Thursday afternoon, but don't worry, the Hollywood superstars had their young children with them (well, one of them did). The Heat co-stars were joined by Bullock's son Louis and Melissa's husband Ben Falcone, reports E! Online.

Earlier this month, Sandra and Louis, 2, had a 'play date' with Melissa and her daughters Vivian, 5, and Georgette, 2, at the Bridesmaids actress' home. The pair star together in the forthcoming comedy The Heat, about an uptight FBI special agent who is paired with Boston cop Shannon Mullins in order to take down a ruthless drug lord. The problem is that neither have ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. Director Paul Feig recently told E! Online that Sandra an Melissa "really became the best of friends" during filming, "Their chemistry was so quick and good right off the bat," he said. 

Though the movie is likely to perform strongly at the box-office, Bullock will be keeping a close eye on the reception to Gravity - Alfonso Cuaron's forthcoming sci-fi thriller that will be vying for a slew of awards. Also starring George Clooney, it follows astronauts who attempt to return to earth after debris crashes into their space shuttle, leaving them drifting alone in space.

The Heat Trailer


Sarah Ashburn is an FBI special agent with an unmatched record for closed cases. However, she is as much valuable as she is disliked as her flawless reputation has inflated her ego and turned her into a control freak who repeatedly fails to be a team player among her fellow agents. When her boss sends her to Boston, little does she know that she's about to meet her match in the shape of Detective Shannon Mullins; a loud-mouthed cop who has also never been good at working with other cops and makes for a truly formidable adversary. However, it is to everyone's surprise when these tough-talking law enforcers succeed in partnering up to bring in a particularly ruthless mobster with serious drug connections and manage to work together in interrogating his known associates. It soon becomes clear that these ladies are becoming less in the way of crime-fighting partners and more in the way of best friends.

This fantastic bad girl comedy sees Sandra Bullock ('Miss Congeniality') as an FBI agent yet again and, for this reason alone, guarantees it to become a huge comedy flick. Directed by Paul Feig ('Bridesmaids') and written by Katie Dippold ('MADtv', 'Parks and Recreation'), 'The Heat' is set to hit screens on April 5th 2013.
