Amy Poehler & Paul Rudd Spoof Romantic Comedies In David Wain’s “They Came Together”



Hmm, let’s see. A new movie from “Wet Hot American Summer” director David Wain, written by the hilariously funny Michael Showalter, starring the ever-flawless Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd, that skewers the romantic comedy film genre? I can’t think of a single reason I won’t be seeing “They Came Together” the second it hits theaters and VOD on June 27. Trailer above!

Honestly, whenever I see anything related to “The Fault In Our Stars,” it’s time to cry, so this extended trailer for the movie version of John Green’s amazing YA novel about teens with cancer had me reaching for the tissues almost immediately. What I could gather through the tears, however, is the sense that the film is sticking really close to the book, which is sure to come as a relief to fans. The trailer shows brief flashes of scenes that are directly from the novel, including Hazel and Augustus’s swoon-worthy date in Amsterdam and the egging of Isaac’s ex-girlfriend’s car. Just five more weeks until “The Fault In Our Stars” opens in theaters on June 6. I have never been so excited to sob uncontrollably in public.

Meet The Fresh-Faced Cast Of The “Jem & The Holograms” Movie

More than a month after we first reported on the news of a live-action “Jem & The Holograms” movie being inexplicably brought to the big screen by Justin Bieber’s mega-manager, Scooter Braun, new info has been released about the young actresses that’ll be playing the truly outrageous pop singers … and they definitely aren’t the names we were hoping for (i.e. Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Momsen, etc.).

In fact, we barely recognize any of these girls’ names, period. Maybe that’s a good thing, though. If we don’t get our hopes too high, it’s only uphill from here. That said, let’s meet the relatively unknown Holograms cast and see how they measure up to their animated counterparts.

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

Not Your Usual Rom-Com: Jenny Slate Is Having An Abortion In “Obvious Child”

Oops

Considering that one in three women will have an abortion during her lifetime, we don’t see too many on the big screen. Even in “Knocked Up” and “Juno,” two of the biggest movies in the last decade about unplanned pregnancies, the characters barely discussed terminations. That’s one of the few reasons I’m very curious to see “Obvious Child,” a new rom-com starring former “Saturday Night Live” star Jenny Slate. She plays an aspiring standup comedian named Donna who has an unplanned pregnancy right around the same time she gets dumped and loses her job. Gaby Hoffman from “Girls” stars as her friend and the flick is written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. Yes, a pro-choice film starring a woman with a lady director!  Everything about “Obvious Child” has “Jessica is going to see this on opening night” written all over it. Check out the trailer above!
