No Escape, a disturbing action thriller, is a change of pace for Lake Bell, who’s best known for lighter fare. By her own admission, that’s by design. We talked about that, the shooting of the movie’s most memorable scene (where Owen Wilson throws the couple’s children from a hotel rooftop), and her desire to direct what she called “big-ass movies.”

The first teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 is currently playing in theaters with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. It was leaked online yesterday, and Paramount quickly yanked it — but the studio has released the official version online today, and it’s asking some very heavy questions about life, the universe and existence. More specifically: if God exists, then why did he make ugly people?

Back in March we saw the first teaser trailer for Masterminds, the new comedy from the director of Napoleon Dynamite, starring Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. That sounds like quite the lineup of comedic talent in a film that may very well redeem director Jared Hess after his follow-up films underperformed and were poorly-received by critics and audiences. The new, full trailer is quite promising, and even more promising are the writing credits: Eastbound and Down collaborators Jody Hill and Danny McBride.

Hey, remember Shanghai Noon and its sequel, Shanghai Knights? Those were a couple of pretty fun movies, huh? It’s been over 10 years since the sequel hit theaters, but studio executives haven’t forgotten the major bank they made at the box office by bringing together the unlikely duo of Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan in what almost became an unlikely trilogy. Not so unlikely anymore, as MGM is reportedly moving forward with Shanghai Dawn, which sadly will not mash-up the Shanghai franchise with Werner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn. Sorry.

‘Masterminds’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis and the Director of ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Team Up For a Crime Comedy

This trailer for Masterminds, which teams Zach Galifianakis with Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, claims it is “based on a true story.” And its Wikipedia page says basically the same thing; that this tale of blundering criminals is inspired by a 1997 robbery that took place in Charlotte North Carolina, where bandits stole over $17 million from the vault of an armored car company.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson recently popped up during Paris fashion week reprising their Derek and Hansel characters from Zoolander to officially announce production on the sequel. It looks like the pair stuck around Paris for a while longer to do a little additional posing for the camera, as evidenced by these new photos featuring Stiller, Wilson and their ridiculously good-looking faces.

Zoolander 2 isn't scheduled to officially start filming until later this spring in Rome, but it looks like stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson just got a jump on the production. The Zoolander stars showed up in character as Derek and Hansel and closed out the Valentino show at Paris Fashion Week with a walk on the runway.

‘No Escape’ Trailer: Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnan Flee a Revolution

EDIT

The No Escape trailer shows us a side of Owen Wilson we haven’t seen in a long time. In 2001, before he was officially typecast as an offbeat goofball, he tried to prove himself as an action hero in Behind Enemy Lines. He did not succeed, to put it mildly. So when we see an older, wiser Wilson attempt to rescue his family in the midst of a violent rebel uprising, we almost have flashbacks to that film (almost because that would require remembering that movie at all).
