Accidental Sexiness have got their mitts on this new batch of images of Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis on the set of Jay Roach‘s upcoming political comedy ‘Dog Fight.’ The movie, formerly titled ‘Southern Rivals,’ is about rival politicians (Ferrell and Galifianakis) in a small congressional district in South Carolina.
The likes of Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow, Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, Josh Lawson, Gary Grubbs, P.J Byrne, and Dan Aykroyd also star in the film, which is scheduled for a August 10th release. Shawn Harwell and frequent Ferrell collaborator Chris Henchy wrote the screenplay. I’ve got high hopes for this film, I’m extremely intrigued to see how Ferrell and Galifianakis’ unique comedy styles work together. Expect to see a teaser trailer soon.
In this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth,’ the new 3D family adventure ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ begins when young Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first film) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It’s a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean’s new stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever. ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ stars Michael Caine as Sean’s grandfather, Alexander Anderson, and Kristin Davis as Sean’s mom, Liz Anderson. ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island 3D’ is set for release February 3rd in the UK and Febuary 10th in the US.
In the film, you have the dynamic of the three generations of guys with the grandfather, father, and son. Then we have your character and your father. Your character, Kailani, she’s sort of the mature one, especially with her father being Luis Guzman….
Vanessa Hudgens: Yeah (laughs). I kind of have to wear the pants in that relationship. Luis Guzman is hysterical, he was cracking me up. He’s such a riot, and also so random. Some of the things that would come out of his mouth, I would have no idea how he could think of these things. He is so much fun, our relationship in the film is so sweet. It’s definitely one of those things where Kailani thinks he’s embarrassing, and of course all kids go through a time where parents are the most embarrassing things, and they want nothing to do with them. But if you step back you realise that you’d be nowhere without them, and that you love them so much, and they love you just as much – if not more. Kailani, she’s a fun character because she’s tough, she takes care of those around her.
Universal Pictures has released, via Twitter, this first official look at Oliver Stone’s upcoming crime thiller ‘Savages.’ The film is based on Don Winslow’s best-selling crime novel, ‘Savages: A Novel,’ which was named one of The New York Times’ Top 10 Books of 2010. Pencilled in for release September 28th, ‘Savages’ features an all-star ensemble cast of Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Demian Bichir.
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Aaron Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Tylor Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry—raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Blake Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.
When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Salma Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon—with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (John Travolta)—wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.

From The Gringos Who Brought You ‘Anchorman.’ EW has unleashed these five new images from Matt Piedmont’s (Funny or Die) Will Ferrell-starring Spanish-language comedy ‘Casa de mi Padre.’ Set for release March 16th, ‘Casa de mi Padre’ co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries), Diego Luna (Milk) and Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge). I REALLY like the look of this film, so much so that the caps-locked “REALLY” is FULLY justified…..as is that “FULLY”!
“Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancee, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).”
