Following the success of 'The LEGO Movie,' Warner Bros. picked up the rights to similarly adapt the wildly popular Minecraft video game for the big screen, and now it looks like they've found their master builder: director Shawn Levy, known for helming the 'Night at the Museum' franchise.
It was right after I was run over by a food service cart filled with fruit, that’s when I started questioning my motivations and sanity.
“Hey, buddy? Are you OK? Would you like some fruit?” This was the voice of a terrified hotel employee who had just slammed his food service cart into a human being who was sitting outside of a hotel room in which Shawn Levy -- the director of ‘This Is Where I Leave You,’ and probably best known for directing the ‘Night at the Museum’ movies -- was supposedly inside.
The 'This Is Where I Leave You' trailer sells a movie that could be unbearably sentimental, or genuinely warm and touching, or funny. It's almost impossible to tell from two-and-a-half minutes of footage. However, you're unlikely to find a stronger cast of likable, funny people than this, and director Shawn Levy is certainly due for a little redemption after making nonsense like 'The Internship' and 'Date Night.'
Shawn Levy has proven many times that he can make successful movies, so it's no surprise that Paramount Pictures is looking to take advantage of the 'Real Steel' filmmaker's talents with their latest, titled 'Monster Problems.' And no, it's simply not just about monsters. It's a little more complicated than that.
'The Wedding Crashers' was one of 2005's biggest movies and made over $200 Million - which was a surprise for an R-rated comedy. Well timed and with a great cast, the film starred Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, and it's surprising that the two haven't worked together as co-leads again. So there should be some excitement in their re-teaming for 'The Internship,' which starts shooting this summer.
