Destination weddings are, by anyone’s measure, the absolute worst. You shell out big-ass cash money to fly to some far-flung corner of the tropics, just to bear witness to someone else’s happiness? A vacation you take as a favor to someone else, the destination wedding is the scourge of the social calendar, but Adam DeVine and Zac Efron inadvertently stumble upon the perfect antidote to the lameness in the newly revealed trailer for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. As the title may suggest, the brothers Mike (DeVine) and Dave (Efron) Stangle need wedding dates. What they get is more than either had bargained for.
Earlier this week, Buzzfeed’s Anne Helen Petersen wrote an essay called “The Shaming of Robert De Niro,” in which she criticized cinephiles who think De Niro should retire rather than continue to harm his legacy as one of his generation’s finest actors by appearing in subpar material. Such arguments, Petersen says, are “snobbery at best and thinly veiled ageism at worst.” Starring in films like The Bag Man, Red Lights, and Killing Season “might not be working with Scorsese for 10 years,” she adds, “but it’s not shameful.”
A great poet once said that girls just want to have fun. And now several more great artists are out to prove it with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
As the sneak peek above suggests, we’ll have the first full, official trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising tomorrow, but until then, enjoy 15 seconds of footage from the upcoming sequel to the 2014 comedy hit starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. This time around, the pleasant couple next door are besieged by a house full of sorority sisters led by Chloe Moretz, who appears only briefly in the trailer, but seems to have been perfectly cast as yet another cold and calculating antagonist.
When last we saw Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) things were finally starting to calm down for them and their newborn daughter. But calm doesn’t make good material for a sequel, and so for the upcoming Neighbors 2 (subtitled Sorority Rising, apparently), things are about to get rowdy again. At least according to Wikipedia’s plot synopsis. And Wikipedia is never wrong:
The scheduled big-screen reboot of Baywatch has currently taken on the following performers: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Zac Efron, True Detective’s Alexandra Daddario, and supermodel Kelly Rohrbach. These master thespians have slavishly honed their craft over decades of careful study, schooling themselves in the minor intricacies of the Meisner technique and the Stanislavski method, rehearsing Shakespearean quotations, tongue-twisting their way through the librettos of Gilbert and Sullivan, and overall, elevating the very practice of screen acting. They’ve all immersed themselves in the work of the greats — Olivier, Brando, Davis, Bergman — and earned their roles through innumerable hours of rehearsal, training, and theory. Additionally, all of these people are phenomenally good-looking, though it would be a gross disservice to Ms. Rohrbach to suggest that she earned this role due to anything other than pure talent.
Robert De Niro has officially reached the IDGAF point of his career (Harrison Ford can relate), with recent roles in films like The Intern and Heist, the latter of which you probably haven’t heard about. Okay, he isn’t completely off the reservation, since David O. Russell has been keeping him on the legit side of things with his role in Joy, but recent years have seen De Niro take a turn to the sillier, lighter side of things and Dirty Grandpa is his latest foray into the wacky, starring opposite Zac Efron in a film that sees the unlikely duo saddling up for a Spring Break trip.
Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in a comedic Baywatch revival movie? We’re already sold, but some fans have probably been eager to see who would be cast to fill Pamela Anderson’s iconic red swimsuit in the role of C.J. Parker. You can chill, as Johnson himself has officially announced model Kelly Rohrbach as the latest member of the Baywatch cast.
Have you ever wanted to hear Robert De Niro talk about Queen Latifah taking a s— in his mouth? Well, good news, because that day has arrived! If you thought the first Dirty Grandpa trailer was something, wait until you see this new red-band trailer, which lets De Niro get more dirty than you ever needed to see and hear.
Last week, Deadline reported that Paramount’s planned Baywatch reboot film starring none other than Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson has begun to run screen tests in search of a worthy leading lady to bound pendulously down the beach alongside him. Among...
