Watch: Justin Timberlake And Clint Eastwood Star In ‘Trouble With The Curve’

JT Meets CE

I know a lot of you are hankering for some new music from Justin Timberlake, so this may not be the best news you’ve heard all day… but… he’s got another movie coming out. Sorry guys. But at least it looks good! Trouble With The Curvewill most def get compared to last year’s critically-acclaimed film Moneyball. It’s another baseball movie that looks all amazing and emotionally-driven so I’m totally in. Plus there’s the Clint Eastwood factor and the part where I’m willing to admit that I’m a fan of Justin Timberlake‘s acting! Yup. Loved him in Alpha Dog. Loved him in The Social Network. Judge me if you will. Throw in a little Amy Adams and the director who worked with Clint Eastwood on Million Dollar Baby and I’m seeing very good things. Plus the trailer made me tear up a bit, but those may be leftover tears from the drama over Aaliyah‘s album. Not sure.

Trouble With The Curve hits theatres September 21.

First Look: Justin Kirk From ‘Weeds’ Will Play A Vet On A New NBC Show

If you’re a fan of Weeds and the one they call Andy Botwin, then this news may be a bit cringe-worthy… but then again, maybe not. My beloved Justin Kirk is wrapping up the last season of Weeds and then he’s making a huge leap from Showtime to NBC’s primetime lineup this fall. He’ll be playing the lead on their new show Animal Practice, and I’m honestly not sure about this! It’s like when Sex And The City moved to TBS or something– Justin is so hilarious and naughty and NSFW (and not safe for NBC, I thought), I can’t imagine him playing a veterinarian on regular ol’ television, lol. However, he is very talented and I’ve seen him in a few movies where he was still hella weird (L!fe Happens, Goats), even if he wasn’t Andy. Anyway, I’ll work through my issues with this while you check out a clip and deets for his new show. Inside!

Watch: Elizabeth Olsen Is Perfect In ‘Liberal Arts’

According To The Experts
Team Liz!

Okay, so I’m watching the new trailer for Liberal Arts, a movie I was kinda sorta interested in when I see a familiar name flash across the screen: “Elizabeth Olsen Is Perfect,” — Michael Dunaway at Paste Magazine. OMG. My editor at Paste (where I contribute the occasional film review) is, totally famous now! Lol. Anyway, aside from my own personal connection to this trailer, it looks like a lot of fun. From what I’m seeing it’s all about the glorious impracticality of a liberal arts education and, of course, falling in lurve. Elizabeth Olsen (who is officially at the point where we don’t have to go into great detail about her older sisters, because she’s clearly awesome on her own merit) plays Zibby, the love interest of Josh Radnor (from How I Met Your Mother). And ever since I saw Elizabeth in Martha Marcy May Marlene I knew I’d watch all future films, without question. She is scary good, and I can’t wait to see her in this movie.

Any other Liz Olsen fans out there?!

Zac Efron and Richard Jenkins also star in Liberal Arts which hits theatres September 14.

First Look: Tom Cruise’s Son Connor Is In The ‘Red Dawn’ Remake

Alongside Chris Hemsworth And Josh Hutcherson
Cruise In Control

Today we get our first look at Tom Cruise‘s 17 year-old son as Daryl Jenkins of the Red Dawn remake. Connor Cruise will play alongside Chris Hemsworth (Snow White And The Huntsman) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) in this action-packed film that chronicles the lives of Midwestern teenager defending their home turf from North Korean invaders. The trailer is definitely intense, but I’m thinking it helps that I’ve never seen the original. The 1984 version starred Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen and– from what I understand– the remake has much to live up to to. Connor appears midway through the trailer and it looks like he’s got a smaller role, but I, for one, am excited to see what he’s got. The story itself seems a little outdated (a North Korean invasion?), but if the acting is solid, the film could still turn out well.

The movie was filmed in 2009 but held up because of MGM’s financial issues. Nothing can hold it back now! Red Dawn hits theaters Nov. 21.

Watch: Judd Apatow’s ‘This Is 40′ Gets A Brand Spankin’ New Trailer

Megan Fox Is In It Looking (Gasp!) Hot
Megan Fox's Body: This Is Not 40

A little while back we were all LOAO at the first trailer for This Is 40, and rightfully so. Judd Apatow has been bringing us some serious laughs over the years and I think this year will prove to be an equally good time, with the onset of his newest project, the ‘sort-of sequel’ to Knocked Up. Now what I love, love, love about this new trailer is that it’s actually new! Like, 90% of this consists of footage we’ve never seen from this movie… including Megan Fox looking like the anti-40 in her bra and panties. And Paul Rudd on the toilet… although I feel like we’ve seen both of these images at other points in life. Anyway, it was good times all around. Checkie out!

This Is 40 hits theatres December 21.

Watch: Jessica Biel And Gerard Butler Are Adorable In The ‘Playing For Keeps’ Trailer

From The Director Of 'The Pursuit Of Happyness'
Cuteness

Okay. So it’s a little cheesy. And there’s that holiday rom-com trailer music playing in the background. But that’s not gonna stop me from getting excited about Playing For Keeps. Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, and Catherine Zeta-Jones are starring in this story of love, loss, and… soccer? Yes. Soccer. And I’m still into it. The kids help; they’re kind of hilarious. And I’ll watch any movie about a father and son. Those are usually the best… Shouts-out to Martin Scorsese! But the director of this film is Gabriele Muccino, the guy who brought us The Pursuit Of Happyness and Seven Pounds, so I’m thinking the cheese-factor might pan out in the end.

What do you guys think? Are you down to watch Gerard Butler play soccer and make a few parental mistakes, while remaining totally cute and charming all the while? No? Just me?

Watch: ‘On The Road’ Releases An International Movie Trailer

Plus, Check Out the Kerouac Drawn Bookcover for 'On the Road'
And the 'Beat' Goes On

Back in March we got to check out the first movie trailer for the forthcoming big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac‘s classic novel On the Road. Today we get to check out a newer, international trailer for the film. As you can see, this new trailer features a lot more footage from the film … footage that, thankfully, eases my concerns about this film. On the Road is such an important book that careful attention must be paid to ensure that a film version does the book justice. I am liking what I’m seeing in this trailer. I hope the movie doesn’t disappoint.

In other On the Road news, a hand-drawn sketch that Kerouac himself drew as the potential book cover for Road has come to light … and you simply must give it a look. Check it out below. More »

Watch: Showtime Releases A ‘Brody 2012′ Trailer For ‘Homeland’ Season 2

"Keeping America on Target"
Brody 2012

Last month we got to see the first video teaser for the forthcoming second season of Homeland on Showtime and today we get to check out a new trailer for the show. As you can see, season 2 of the show will focus on Nicholas Brody‘s run for political office (played by Damian Lewis) … despite the fact that he is secretly a turned terrorist intent on carrying out an attack on US soil. The only person who knows Brody‘s secret is CIA counterterrorist agent Carrie Mathison (played by Claire Danes) … but, as season 1 ended, she was getting possibly memory erasing shock treatments. Drama! I like this trailer a lot because not only does it give us a great understanding of the season to come but it also cleverly plays into the fact that we are in an election year. A second promo video has been released for Homeland season 2 … it’s kind of a trailer but not really. Check it out below. More »

First Look: A Teaser Is Released For The Osama Bin Laden Movie

From The Director Of 'The Hurt Locker'
True Story

If you remember the Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, there’s a good chance you remember the name Kathryn Bigelow. The director (who also won an Oscar for the 2008 film) recenlty completed production on her next movie, the story of the manhunt for and killing of Osama bin Laden. The movie is titled Zero Dark Thirty and… honestly? I don’t know how I feel about it! I’m probably being a bit hypocritical–because I definitely watch violent movies with no qualms whatsoever– but something about this story makes me a bit hesitant to see the film. Maybe it’s because it’s only been about a year since President Obama announced that bin Laden had been found and killed by members of the U.S. military; it’s so soon! But I’m always excited about new movies and good directors so I’m keeping my eye on this one; check out the teaser for a first look.

Watch: Cee Lo Green Lights Up The New Trailer For ‘Sparkle’

"I'm built to last, like a love machine / 'Cuz I'm a man"
The Lady Killer Kills 'I'm A Man'

It’s been ages since I’ve seen the original 1976 version of Sparkle, but I remember it left quite an impression on me, and so I wasn’t sure that I’d be into a remake. A while back Trent shared the first Sparkle trailer for the new version starring Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston and I was definitely reminded of Dreamgirls… I think mainly because of the cheese-factor that you can’t help but notice. But this new trailer/sneak peek features Cee Lo Green (who plays Black, lol) belting out I’m A Man with that glorious voice of his, and it’s got me kind of excited about the film! Cee Lo the Lady Killer was absolutely made for this era and I think movies like this are best experienced as celebrations of music at a particular, unique time. I can’t wait to hear the other songs Cee Lo and the other very singers of the cast will perform. And even if the movie does not pan out (or isn’t as good as I remember the original to be), I’d still pay good money to hear Whitney Houston sing His Eye Is on the Sparrow. Nothing like a good cry-fest in the theatre :)

Check out Cee Lo Green (who is in talks to do another album with Goodie Mobb!!!!!) in the video and tell me if this one is doin’ it for ya.
