In what will probably result in a much more amusing film than the last time the two appeared on screen together, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman are reuniting for a new comedy titled Significant Other. Bateman will direct, produce and co-star in the upcoming film with Aniston, who will also serve as executive producer. Based on the strength of Bateman’s directorial debut, Bad Words, we can at least take comfort knowing that this has to be better than The Switch, right?

Disney’s next animated release is Zootopia, and while the trailers have yet to really sell this thing (save for a couple of solid sight gags), the studio has released two new clips along with the final trailer to get you in the mood for some wacky animal shenanigans. You can watch the full trailer above and check out the two clips below, which do a better job of conveying the film’s sense of humor.

The future of Arrested Development’s Netflix tenure remains in question after a number of conflicting reports, though series lead Jason Bateman has an idea as to why the first Netflix revival proved so notably “underwhelming.” Could a change in promotion from Arrested Development “Season 5” better sell the inevitable return?

‘The Gift’ Review: Presenting A Surprising Directorial Debut From Joel Edgerton

There are a fair number of scares in The Gift, but the most shocking part of the film isn’t the sudden appearance of a mysterious package or a creepy guy popping out of the shadows; it’s the way the film’s resident creepy guy is slowly revealed as a man with a broken heart and genuine feelings. When he’s introduced, Gordo (Joel Edgerton) gives off an unsettling vibe. His conversations are awkward and stilted; his clothes make him look like a time traveler from the early ’90s. But the more time The Gift spends with him the less threatening he appears — or at least the more threatening his supposed victims become.

It’s common for early teaser trailers to act as announcements, introducing a the existence of a film before proper previews show up to talk about little things like plot and character. It’s less common for a trailer to give its viewers — ostensibly, in this case, children — the definition of “anthropomorphic” so they can easily digest a high concept. Welcome to the internet, Zootopia trailer. You are certainly one of the more unique teasers we’ve seen in a little while.

Similar to Pixar’s little break last year, Disney Animation is taking a break from releasing a film this year (more time for you to get “Let It Go” out of your head), but the studio will return next year with Zootopia. Disney has released the first look at their upcoming film, which doesn’t hit theaters until next spring.

Like many actors before him, Joel Edgerton is adding “director” to his resume. First up: The Gift, a psychological thriller produced by horror heavyweights Blumhouse Productions, starring Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall as a nice, normal couple living a nice life in their nice new house (so nice!), until an old high school classmate gets a little too attached.

Review: ‘Horrible Bosses 2’ Was a Horrible Idea

Warner Bros.
Some ideas just aren’t cut out for sequels. ‘The Hangover’ was ingenious and hilarious—for one movie. But another ‘Hangover’? With the same guys? That doesn’t make a ton of sense. ‘The Blue Lagoon’ was striking and exotic. But a ‘Return to the Blue Lagoon’? More castaways? On the exact same deserted island? Sorry, no thanks. To the list of concepts that could not support a sequel but got one anyway, we can now add ‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ a flimsy retread of the 2011 comedy that had barely enough material to fill one film.
