'The Way, Way Back' premiered at Sundance and will be released by Fox Searchlight later this year. That's been a winning proposition for many films, including 'Juno,' '(500) Days of Summer' and 'Little Miss Sunshine,' which this most resembled. Or maybe it comes across that way because both star Steve Carell. Now there's a trailer for the film.
Say you've decided to splice together the DNA of two people to create the ultimate being a la Mr. Sinister in 'X-Men.' Now say you've chosen Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell as your two subjects. Would you expect the resultant person to be equal parts handsome and funny? Well, that's kind of what you get. (See the photo evidence above.)
The new 'Despicable Me 2' trailer is here and it's here to remind us that even with all the Iron Men and Supermen in theaters this summer, 'Despicable Me 2' is one film you shouldn't discount when it comes to what could be the biggest movies of 2013. Yup, the kiddies are gonna love this one (oh, okay, we admit we think we're gonna love it too...).
Off the Las Vegas strip, down a desert highway and across from various fast food restaurants and liquor stores sits a rather nondescript office building. Inside could be a doctor's office or an accounting group. You might not know anything remotely exciting or mysterious was hidden behind those walls were it not for the sign out front that reads "COPPERFIELD" in gold letters.
This is where the magic happens.
It's a little weird that a movie about the dangers of doing something so long that it becomes rote and stale is, at times, incredibly rote and stale. Write what you know, I guess; 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' has a couple big laughs, a few small laughs, and a whole lot of going through the Hollywood mainstream comedy motions. As a movie, it's a mess; in select moments, it's occasionally hilarious. It's probably best appreciated as a playlist of highlight clips on YouTube.
Previous trailers for 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' have been fairly traditional, laying out the story of two struggling magicians past their prime (Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi) who compete against a hip Criss Angel type played by Jim Carrey. But this new promo video chooses to go meta, styling itself like a hokey commercial for an actual Las Vegas magic act instead of a movie trailer.
We'd be surprised if 'The Office' series finale didn't find some way to either include, or pay tribute to departed series star Steve Carell in the series' final hour, but now Carell himself has even jumped on the recent bandwagon of denying character Michael Scott will appear before Dunder-Mifflin closes its doors this May. Carell recently spoke out about his decision not to return to 'The Office' series finale, but should we believe him? Judge for yourself inside!
While our beloved '30 Rock' will come to a close on January 31, we shan't forget that 2013 will also see the final episodes of 'The Office' airing this May. And while much has been said about the final hours of the Dunder-Mifflin crew, from returning guests to unraveling the mystery behind the documentary team, the cast and crew recently took to the TCA tour to preview the series end, including several returning cast members (and several still not). Find out the latest on the 'Office' series finale inside!
While everyone has their own opinion of the direction NBC's 'The Office' has taken in the years without Steve Carell, as the series approaches its final swan song most would agree any finale would feel incomplete without Carell's character Michael Scott returning for one final "that's what she said." So while we move closer to 'The Office's ninth season and series finale, will Steve Carell return? NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt has an answer that might surprise you, so check out the new details inside!
