David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids – after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms). In order to wipe the slate clean – and maintain a clean bill of health – David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of his neighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) and wannabe customer Kenny (Will Poulter), and the tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen Casey (Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof plan. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the “Millers” are headed south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang. Set for an August 7th release in the US and an August 23rd bow in the UK, ‘We’re The Millers’ also stars Molly C. Quinn, Kathryn Hahn and Nick Offerman.
‘We’re The Millers’ marks your third time working with Jason Sudeikis after 2010’s ‘The Bounty Hunter’ and 2011’s ‘Horrible Bosses.’ How was it working with him in this film, in a more expanded capacity?
Jennifer Aniston: He’s so much fun and he’s a friend – I tend to have luck working with friends, thankfully (laughs). It was great. His improvisational skills are just masterful, he’s so fantastic and it lent to this awesome, fun kind of volleying back and forth. After we finished working on ‘Horrible Bosses’ we were both told that ‘We’re The Millers’ was out there and we wanted to do something really fun again. To work with Jason on something full-length, instead of like in little snippets with ‘Horrible Bosses,’ that was awesome. I had a blast.
With Marvel recently announcing that they’ve set release dates for two untitled films in 2016 and one in 2017, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed to WIRED that Marvel has their movies planned through 2021. “I could arguably say what we’re planning for the year 2021. Will that happen? I don’t know. But what we planned for 2015 in 2006 is happening.” Feige also teased further expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with future films. “Five years ago, looking at our plan, we knew that if Avengers was going to work, the movies had to stand alone. Now we have to prove to the studio that we’re more than just these five characters, these five franchises.”

Optimum Releasing has revealed, via Total Film, this new UK poster for Ron Howard’s Formula One racing drama, ‘Rush.’ Penciled in for a September 13th release in the UK and September 20th bow in the US, ‘Rush’ centers on the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda and British driver James Hunt. ‘Inglorious Basterds’ star Daniel Brühl is playing Lauda with Chris Hemsworth taking on the role of Hunt. The likes of Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader) co-star. Helmed by Oscar-winner Ron Howard, the script for ‘Rush’ is by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen).
Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Howard, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Morgan and Brian Oliver (Black Swan) and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Todd Hallowell and Tim Bevan. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America.
With two weeks to go, Spike Lee’s raised just over $735,000 of his Kickstarter campaign’s $1.25 million goal. With roughly $500,000 and fourteen days left to go, Spike Lee has revealed that Zaraah Abrahams is set to play the female lead in his new mystery joint. While not much is known about the film, the Kickstarter page describes it as follows: “Human beings who are addicted to Blood. Funny, Sexy and Bloody. A new kind of love story (and not a remake of “Blacula”).” Lee’s message about the casting of Abrahams can be read below.
English Actor, Ms. Zaraah Abrahams has been offered the Woman Lead in my New Film here on Kickstarter. I first saw Zaraah in BLACK GIRL IN PARIS, this is a NYU GRAD Thesis Film Directed by Kiandra Parks, a Student of mine. I remember Kiandra screening a rough cut of her film in my NYU Office, as I watched I kept being drawn to the Co-Star, she was dominating this 20 Minute Film. After the screening was done I told Kiandra that “She had a very good film” and “Who is the Co-Star? What is her name? Where did she come from? How did you find her? How come she is the Co-Star and not the lead? I need to get in touch with her.” I tracked her down and Zarrah is even better than I thought. If I know anything, I know Young Talent. These are Individuals who have that special something, a true gift from God and they only need the platform, the vehicle to “SHOW DA WORLD” what they got. 40 Acres and A Mule over the years has been that platform in front and BEHIND THE CAMERA Too.
