Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this first trailer for ‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ the follow-up to the 2011 comedy ‘Horrible Bosses.’ The film reunites Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as everyone’s favorite working stiffs: Nick, Dale and Kurt. Jennifer Aniston and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey also reprise their ‘Horrible Bosses’ roles, while Chris Pine and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz star as new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of success. Opening on November 28th, the synopsis for ‘Horrible Bosses 2′ is as follows.
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in “Horrible Bosses 2.” But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ recently become the highest grossing movie of the year with a hefty $713 haul at the worldwide box office. Next up on the X-Men franchise plate is ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ which has been set a May 27th, 2016 release date. Writer-director-producer Bryan Singer has confirmed that ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will focus primarily on the returning cast members from ’X-Men: First Class,’ which includes Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, and Nicholas Hoult’s Beast. Although unconfirmed, he’s also teased Gambit (potentially played by Channing Tatum) and Nightcrawler joining the fray. Gambit’s only big-screen appearance to date was in ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ where he was played by Taylor Kitsch. Nightcrawler was played by Alan Cumming in ‘X2.’
We’re sad to report that the influential film director, screenwriter and actor Paul Mazursky has passed away at the age of 84 from pulmonary cardiac arrest. In all, Mazursky received five Academy Award nominations, four for his screenplay writing on ‘Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice,’ ‘Harry and Tonto,’ ‘An Unmarried Woman’ and ‘Enemies, a Love Story,’ and once as producer of ‘An Unmarried Woman’ (nominated for Best Picture). Other notable films written and directed by Mazursky include ‘Moscow on the Hudson’ and ‘Down and Out in Beverly Hills.’
Legendary film critic Roger Ebert was a particular fan of Paul Mazursky’s, giving six of his films the optimal four stars in his reviews. In 1986, Ebert stated that “Mazursky has a way of making comedies that are more intelligent and relevant than most of the serious films around.” Mr Mazursy is survived by his wife Betsy, who had bits parts in several of his films, and daughter Jill, a writer-producer who also appeared in several Mazursky films. RIP to one of the best.
First Trailer For ‘St. Vincent’ – Starring Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O’Dowd…
From The Weinstein Company comes this first trailer for writer/director Theodore Melfi’s much buzzed about ‘St. Vincent.’ Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O’Dowd, Kimberly Quinn and Scott Adsit star in the comedic drama, which is about a young boy (Jaeden Lieberher) who finds an unlikely friend and mentor in Murray’s character, St. Vincent de Van Nuys, a misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic, war veteran who lives next door. An October 24th release date has been penciled in for the film.
Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.
While we’re still awaiting a tracklisting, Marvel has today revealed the cover art for their ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ soundtrack. The various trailers and TV spots for the film have already featured some great songs in the form of Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked On A Feeling’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit in the Sky,’ and if the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ soundtrack is half as good as its cover and those aforementioned two tracks, we should be in for a treat. UPDATE: tracklist added.
