Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »

Reese Witherspoon Gets "Wild"

There’s no movie I’m anticipating more this year than “Wild” starring Reese Witherspoon, the film adaptation of Cheryl Strayed‘s memoir. Like, Reese Witherspoon wearing no makeup and lots of flannel in a fucking bush.Wild is the story of Strayed’s 1,100-mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail as she struggles to leave behind drug use and a disappointing marriage, all following the death of her beloved mom. The trailer finally dropped today and, oh, does this look good. We only have to wait until December 5th until its in theaters. [YouTube]

"You're Welcome To Do That On Me..."

It’s about to get frisky up in hurr! The new official trailer for “Horrible Bosses 2″ has just been released, and Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day are back to their old tricks. The only difference? This time, Jen Aniston is even kinkier than she was in the original movie. Jen reprises her role as a sex-crazed dentist who asks Bateman, “Have you ever done it in a dentist chair?”… and it just gets better and better from there. Check out the trailer for a sneak peek of what’s to come in theaters November 26!

Ryan Gosling Tried To Kick Rachel McAdams Off “The Notebook”

  • Mind. Blown. According “The Notebook” director Nick Cassavetes, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams didn’t get along during the movie’s filming, and Ryan even tried to have another actress brought in to read lines with him off-camera during a scene. He claimed he and Rachel didn’t have any chemistry (even though they ended up dating for years after the movie’s release). Allie and Noah’s on-again, off-again hysterics in the movie suddenly make way more sense. [Daily Mail UK]

Together Again

Kristen Wiig knocked it out of the park with “Bridesmaids,” proving that she could fill movie theaters by running on funny. But contrary to what a lot of ex-”SNL” stars might do, she hasn’t just made the same comedy over and over again. She played slightly more serious roles in “Friends With Kids” and “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty” and now she’s back for what looks to be even darker comedy. In “The Skeleton Twins,” Wieg and Bill Hader (AKA Stefon from “SNL”) play estranged siblings who are brought back together when both are at a crossroads in their lives. He’s a failed actor still damaged by an old relationship, while she’s unhappily married to bro-tastic meathead. Together again, they’re trying to patch things up and confront the past. Complicated relationships with siblings FTW!

“The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby” Looks Like It’ll Tear Our Hearts Out

"The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby" Looks Like It'll Tear Our Hearts Out
Bring On The Tears!

I’m a sucker for a romantic movie that kicks me in the gut with some painfully realistic message about how fleeting love is. “Blue Valentine”? One of my favorite movies ever, and not just because Ryan Gosling is in it. “Like Crazy”? So. Many. Tears. “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy, depicts a couple’s relationship through both of their perspectives. It originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival as two subtitled pieces, “Him” and “Her,” and then was recut so they were combined for the Cannes Film Festival. The latter version will hit theaters September 26 — but the filmmaker is also releasing the earlier version later in the fall. Choose to see whichever version you want, but by the looks of this trailer, you should probably bring tissues no matter what.

Wait, Why Did No One Tell Me Tony Goldwyn Is Playing Warren Jeffs In A Lifetime Original Movie?

"Do You Feel God?"

There’s no joy quite like the elation of finding out 1) there’s a trashy new Lifetime original movie about fundamentalist Mormons coming out, 2) it stars one of the hot guys in your spank bank, and 3) it’s airing this weekend when you just so happen to have no plans. Introducing “Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs,” a Lifetime original movie debuting this Saturday night. Tony Goldwyn, who plays Fitz on “Scandal,” stars as the fundamentalist polygamist Mormon/cult leader who believes he is a “prophet” and forces the marriages of adult men to underage girls. I’m sure Lifetime will have all sorts of lawyered-up language — “Inspired by true events!” —  but will be accurate enough in a TV movie sorta way. One thing is for sure, I’ll be watching.
