It's easy to see a release date move as just card shuffling, but a movie's success or failure is often linked to when it comes out. Would 'Battleship' and 'Dark Shadows' tanked as hard as they did if they weren't caught in the wake of 'The Avengers?' We now have new release dates for 'The Lone Ranger,' 'Thor 2' 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' and more.
Conan O'Brien seemed as surprised as his audience by the two guests stars on his stage Tuesday night. First, 'SNL' and '30 Rock' comedian Chris Parnell popped up in a sketch led by Deon Cole, but walked off the stage almost as unceremoniously as he arrived. Seconds later, though, Vince Vaughn took the stage with an exclusive new trailer for his summer comedy 'The Watch.' Didn't stay up to watch this live? Don't worry. We have it below.
We haven't seen much of Sean Penn since he appeared in Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life' last year, but now word comes down that he is doing, of all things, a comedy. The intense (see above), Oscar-winning actor is joining Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig and Patton Oswalt in 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.'
With the recent shooting of Trayvon Martin, 20th Century Fox's 'Neighborhood Watch' was put in an awkward position of being about something that was no longer just a goof. And - as a result - the studio has pulled ads and trailers from Florida, but has not decided to move the release date from July 27. The longer this tragedy is in the public eye, the more likely it is the film will be postponed.
The first teaser and poster for 'Neighborhood Watch' have hit the internet, and with them come all of our hopes and dreams for Akiva Schaffer's ('Hot Rod') latest directorial effort. Scripted by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg ('Superbad'), 'Neighborhood Watch' follows a group of suburban dads as they take on the responsibility of, you guessed it, neighborhood watch.
