Steve Carell is a man of many talents -- just look at his acting range -- but his prodigious gifts are not just limited to his work on the screen. This is a guy who can do everything with style, grace, and humor -- like catching grapes in his mouth on national television and weaving a believable tale about his molting pet salamander Anderson Cooper.

‘Foxcatcher’ – directed by ‘Moneyball’ director Bennett Miller – premiered Monday at the Toronto International Film Festival after a highly successful debut at Cannes earlier this year. It’s the true story of the intricate relationship between two brothers and Olympic wrestlers -- Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) – with their wrestling team financier and sort of coach, John du Pont (Carell), of the famed and extremely wealthy du Pont family … a relationship that ends in paranoia and disaster.

Instead of one full-length 'Foxcatcher' trailer (which would traditionally run around 2:30), Sony Classics has been issuing one-minute teasers for the film. We've got another new teaser trailer today, which focuses on Steve Carell's role as John du Pont (you can watch the previous teaser, focusing more on Channing Tatum's character, below). It really is remarkable to see how Carell has not only changed his looks (those teeth, my god, those teeth), but also his cadence. With labored breathing and long pauses, it doesn't sound like Steve Carell at all.

Here's some news we never expect to report today... Warner Bros. is planning a spinoff of their classic Looney Tunes franchise that would be based on Acme Corp. - the company which Wile E. Coyote and others use to buy their anvils, dynamite and earthquake pills - and would Steve Carell. And, before you ask, no, there won't actually be any Looney Tunes characters in the movie. Huh?

'Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day' may be on the most unwieldy titles of any film set for release in 2014, but that's pretty much the point. Based on Judith Viorst and Ray Cruz's celebrated children's book of the same name, the film takes a very simple premise (the title character has a really awful day) and extends it into a big family friendly comedy filled with names like Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner. The first trailer from the film has arrived and we'll let you decide whether or not it's an assault on your childhood.

'Anchorman 2' Review

[This review contains some minor spoilers of 'Anchorman 2.']
There are a handful of extremely funny, laugh-out-loud moments in 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.' One happens early – the reveal that David Koechner now runs a cut-rate fast-food joint that saves money by serving fried bats (or, as he calls it, “chicken of the cave"). Another is a retread from the first film – a battle royale of news teams from various networks, but this time even more extreme. There's also great humor in what I suppose passes for “the point” of this movie – that lowest common denominator attitudes like those of Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy are what inadvertently invented the cesspool of modern cable news.
Of course, what you will find funny is entirely dependent on your own taste, but these highlighted scenes (and several others, I must point out) really landed with me. It struck me later, as I was trying to piece together why the movie felt about six hours long, that these moments were all dependent on gags that could not have been ad-libbed. Ferrell, Koechner, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and the rest of the gang are deservedly respected for their quick-thinking comedy chops. When they get together and riff, few can top them. The problem is that 'Anchorman 2' relies on this far, far too much. It's like a a dessert plate where mounds of fluffy whipped cream obscures the fact that, underneath, there's only a tiny bite of pie.
