‘Cake’ Trailer: Jennifer Aniston Pops Pills and Goes for the Oscar Gold

EDIT
by Britt Hayes 3 days ago
This trailer for ‘Cake’ features a quote that declares this a “redefining” role for Jennifer Aniston, but has whoever said that taken the time to watch ‘The Good Girl’? Or have we forgotten Aniston's previous forays into drama already? In any case, it's good to see Aniston tackling such messy and complex characters again, as her dramatic talents are often overlooked. And in ‘Cake’ she ditches the makeup and is popping just about as many pills as it takes to get that Oscar nomination.

Yes, the internet just shook with squeals of glee (no pun intended): the ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ trailer has arrived and, for better or worse, it looks like a whole lot more of the same. For fans, that's perfectly okay! Why fix something that clearly isn't broken? For the people who just couldn't deal with the first entry, this one promises all kinds of new nightmares and/or migraines.

The first 'Into the Woods' trailer was strangely lacking in singing, which was an odd way to sell a movie based on one of the most beloved of all modern musicals. Thankfully, Disney has course corrected with trailer number two, which actually lets us see and hear the ensemble cast performing Stephen Sondhiem's iconic songs. It's an improvement by default.

When we saw the initial teaser for Disney's 'Into the Woods' movie, the thing that was missing from our first peek at the upcoming musical was the actual, you know, musical part. But thanks to this new featurette on the film, we can hear bits and pieces of the songs from the adaptation of the classic musical, from the mouths of stars like Meryl Streep and Anna Kendrick.

Following this morning's first look at Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf and his Big Dumb Hat from the upcoming musical film 'Into the Woods,' Entertainment Weekly has released even more official photos -- this time featuring more of Anna Kendrick's Cinderella and Chris Pine's Prince Charming, and less Big Bad Wolf. Sorry, silly hat fans.

'Into the Woods' Trailer: The Beloved Musical Gets a Non-Musical Sneak Peek

'Into the Woods' isn't just Disney's big Christmas Day release this year and it isn't just one of the more impressive ensembles assembled for a fantasy film. It's the long-awaited big-screen version of Stephen Sondheim's beloved musical of the same name ... which makes it all the more baffling that the first 'Into the Woods' trailer does everything in its power to hide the fact that this movie is a musical. There is not a single sung word in all 107 seconds.

Writer and director Joe Swanberg reunites with his 'Drinking Buddies' star Anna Kendrick for 'Happy Christmas,' an intimate indie dramedy in which Kendrick stars as a willfully regressive 27 year-old who moves in with her older brother and his wife, only to throw their world into (minor) upheaval. A charming counterpoint to popular man-child narratives, Swanberg's latest asks not for sympathy for its main character, but merely identification and a little empathy.

This past weekend's 'SNL' installment with Anna Kendrick and musical guest Pharrell proved to be one of the stronger episodes of the season to date, and while we wait for this coming weekend to return 'Neighbors' star Seth Rogen to the stage, Kendrick had a bit more left in the tank. Watch the secret, dark history to '90s Nickelodeon series "ZAP!," in the latest 'SNL' deleted scene!

'SNL' Scorecard: Anna Kendrick Sings and Sings and Sings and Sings...

EDIT

Anna Kendrick is the perfect type of ‘SNL’ host – to the point that, as a performer, she could easily be a member of the cast. (I have no idea what her sketch writing ability is like.) Kendrick blends in with the rest of the cast so easily, it allows the show to be about the sketches and not about the host. Not to mention, she’s quite talented, which allows for a lot of singing and dancing – and there was a lot of singing and dancing last night (and a lot of Disney references). This was by far the most consistent show of the season, which makes it the best show of the season (even though I'm hesitant to use the word "best"). So much, in fact, that I wish I could set today’s Scorecard to the music of ‘Treasure Planet.’
