“That Awkward Moment” — does a more cringeworthy name for an otherwise redeemable movie exist? (What’s that? The original title was “Are We Officially Dating?” Oh, okay, never mind then.) At first glance, it seems like little more than your standard terrible “bros party and get with hot chicks” fare, but I don’t know! This trailer is kind of charming, and it’s definitely no “Superbad.” Actually, I’m pretty sure this is a movie about guys havin’ feelings, which is weird.
Zac Efron stars as a casual dude living with his two male friends (played by Miles Teller and the always excellent Michael B. Jordan) as they all struggle to stay single. Yes, they are struggling with this. The title, I gather, is taken from “that awkward moment” in every “dating relationship” where you have to decide where it’s all going. That moment, to me, is less awkward and more like “that dry-heaving moment.” I’m gagging just thinking about it. But if all you’re looking for is some hit-it-and-quit-it visual man candy this morning, well, we’ve got Zac naked laying horizontally across a toilet for you. He later straps on a fake dick for what he thinks is a costume party. (It isn’t.) Will see! [Gossip Cop]
To be honest, I hadn’t heard anything about “Charlie Countryman” that would make me want to see it, especially considering that star Shia LaBeouf both A) gives me the douchechills and B) reminds me of my ex-boyfriend. (These points may/may not be connected.) But man, I just watched the first trailer, and oh man it looks sooooo gooooood. Evan Rachel Wood is excellent with a thick Romanian accent, and even Shia seems like he may be redeeming himself as an American who falls for Wood’s musician character and follows her down the rabbit hole into a turbulent gangster-ridden underworld. Consider my interest piqued.
People like movies, and people like sex, so it’s not surprising that when there’s a physical attraction between two characters on screen, the odds are high that their genitals will soon be in contact. But sometimes strong sexual tension doesn’t explode into erotic release. The characters don’t give in to that feeling, and instead all that emotion and/or attraction manifests itself in some other physical act. Some distinctly non-sexual contact is made, carrying all the lust, love, or desire of sex. Here are my five favorite movie sex scenes that contain no sex. Read more at Cracked…
Behold, the second trailer for “American Hustle,” featuring Jennifer Lawrence‘s boobs!!! Boobs — Jennifer Lawrence has ‘em, and they have a starring role in this movie, or so it would seem. Also: the 70′s, Christian Bale‘s hairy potbelly, Bradley Cooper wearing pink curlers, a goateed Louis C.K. at 1:58. WATCH. [Just Jared]
Good news for Peter Dinklage fans (and who isn’t a Peter Dinklage fan?): the “Game of Thrones” star has landed a headlining role in a new R-rated comedy from Paramount. In fact, it’s his movie — Dinklage will star as a regular (little) guy who tricks people into believing that he’s a real-life leprechaun. The film, as yet untitled, was penned by Andrew Dodge, the writer responsible for the 2003 Billy Bob Thornton comedy “Bad Santa” and the upcoming Jason Bateman spelling bee comedy, “Bad Words.” Oh, so I take back the comment about the movie being untitled. My money’s on “Bad Leprechaun.” [Complex]
Our best friend Jennifer Lawrence can really act, huh? Here she is looking devastatingly beautiful alongside Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Bradley Cooper’s perm (I’m sorry but it’s so distracting) in the trailer for “American Hustle” by David O. Russell, who also directed Jennifer in “Silver Linings Playbook.” The movie, which hits theaters on Christmas (the perfect flick for Jews to catch on opening day!), is based on the FBI’s Abscam operation, which means Jennifer and Amy are both working some serious ’70s steaze, decked out in fur coats, bouffants, and diamonds all over the place. HOT.
