To date, the most successful movie that Noah Baumbach has been involved with grossed $530 million worldwide. This is an astounding and somewhat surprising figure until it’s revealed that the movie in question is ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ – a movie that Baumbach co-wrote with the writer of the other two 'Madagascar’ movies, Eric Darnell. As a director, Baumbach’s most successful movie to date is 2005’s ‘The Squid and the Whale,’ which grossed a little over $7 million domestically. This will all change when ‘While We’re Young’ – which premiered in Toronto and was the New York Film Festival’s Surprise Screening on Sunday evening – reaches theaters next year. Noah Baumbach has made a commercially viable film.

I really want to see While We’re Young and I’m terrified to see it at the same time. I love writer/director Noah Baumbach (he’s the guy who made The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg, and Frances Ha), and I can really relate to the premise of an older, childless married couple trying to recapture their youth. But I think I might relate to that premise a little too strongly.

‘While We’re Young’ Trailer: Ben Stiller Gets Back to Being Funny

Noah Baumbach’s last movie, ‘Frances Ha’, was one of our favorite movies of 2013. If you don’t trust our judgment, it was also one of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite movies of 2013. For as good as it was though, ‘Frances Ha’ never really broke out in a big way. That should all change with Baumbach’s next movie, ‘While We’re Young’, which looks like a very, very funny Ben Stiller movie.

The new 'Birdman' trailer only confirms what we thought after the first preview from a few months ago: this is going to be one of the strangest movies of 2014 and we can't wait to see it. Not only does it feature the great Michael Keaton

Fox Searchlight released the first 'Birdman' trailer, featuring Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor known mainly for portraying a superhero, and it is one helluva of a preview. Evocative and dark, funny and strange, the footage has done what all trailers set out to do: it took something we didn't care about and made us desperate to see it.

Emma Stone, Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis have all joined the project, which sounds like an interesting left turn for a filmmaker usually known for his pitch black dramas.
