Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman

It’s not a con or a swindle, it’s all about putting on a show. And that’s what Hugh Jackman is going to do in the musically-inspired film The Greatest Showman, where he plays P.T. Barnum, the nearly down-and-out title character who not only finds fame in gathering extraordinary people to play at his show, but gives them a sense of hope as well. Of course, there are other subplots that will move the film.

Now Fox has released a brand new trailer that sheds some light on that sense of hope plus some of the other struggles that Barnum will have to go through to achieve his goal of giving his family everything they could have ever wanted. Check out the latest trailer here below.

‘Baywatch’ Red Band Trailer Asks “Who’s Your Daddy Now”

Raunchy summer comedies are becoming more commonplace to give some balance to a season normally chock full of action tentpoles. And with more studios trying to use the same formula that gave way to the success of the Jump Street franchise, you can be sure to see a lot more raunchy takes on TV classics. So Paramount hopes that you’ll come to theaters to watch Baywatch, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, and Priyanka Chopra.

While previous trailers have skimmed the surface of this R-rated flick, this new red band trailer will make sure you know that this is an R-rated action comedy. It’s definitely NSFW, so it’s probably best to put on some headphones or wait until the coast is clear. Check out the trailer below.

Baywatch

Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Baywatch, from Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon. The film is based on the hit 90s show that centered on a group of lifeguards who saved lives on the titular beach. Of course, the show was probably best known for their slow-motion runs than anything else. But still, with the success of the Jump Street film franchise, studios are looking at what shows they can revitalize and turn into films.

Check out the full trailer for Baywatch here below.

Baywatch

The fact that Seth Gordon is behind the lens for Baywatch pretty much tells us that the film reboot will go for a more comedic slant than its cheesy drama TV counterpart. And the first trailer for the film pretty much proves that.

Paramount has released the first trailer for Baywatch, starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Jon Bass, Rob Huebel, and Hannibal Buress. Clearly, the reboot wants to be something else or at least mimic what made the 21 Jump Street films so successful. Find out if it meets your expectations by watching the trailer below.

Movie Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, starring Seth Rogen and Chloë Grace Moretz

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
Director: Nicholas Stoller
Screenwriters: Andrew J. Cohen, Brendan O’Brien, Nicholas Stoller, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg
Cast: Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Jerrod Carmichael, Hannibal Buress
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 92 Minutes
Release Date: May 20, 2015

“This isn’t working! You’re only making them sexier!”

When you look at movies like Caddyshack II, The Hangover Part II, and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, one thing is clear: it’s damn near impossible to make a great comedy sequel. Why do these films pale in comparison to their predecessors? Is it because part of what makes comedy work in the first place is surprise, and by creating familiarity with a character or franchise, there’s less room for surprise? That’s certainly part of it.

That familiarity, however, is just a symptom of the cause of why comedy sequels often fail. Rarely are these films concerned with character development or story progression. It’s less about evolution and more about escalation. Characters remain largely unchanged while the emphasis is placed on making everything around them bigger and more outrageous. That’s what makes Nicholas Stoller‘s Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising so interesting. It looks like a rehash of the director’s 2014 film, but it’s a sneakily progressive movie that outsmarts its equally funny predecessor.

Neighbors 2

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
Director: Nicholas Stoller
Screenwriter: Seth Rogen, Nicholas Stoller, Evan Goldberg, Andrew Jay Cohen, Brendan O’Brien
Cast: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloë Grace Moretz, Beanie Feldstein, Kiersey Clemons, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 92 Minutes
Release Date: May 20, 2016

It’s hard to believe that a comedy sequel could actually be any good whatsoever. Repetition is the proverbial weapon of choice that so often kills a comedy sequel. It’s not even a question of making it greater than its predecessor but if such a thing is even necessary to begin with. For Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, there are a few concerns, sure, no film is without flaw, but Nicholas Stoller brings us something that is still funny and manages to maintain that sharp wit and hilarious chemistry between the cast members all the while adding new elements and even addressing a few serious social issues that affect us today.

The film centers on Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) having to move and put their house in escrow when they find out that they are having a second child. When college freshman Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz) establishes a new sorority, Kappa Nu, with Nora (Beanie Feldstein) and Beth (Kiersey Clemons) right next door, Mac and Kelly recruit Teddy (Zac Efron) to their team to battle the sorority sisters and prevent the buyers from pulling out.

Neighbors 2

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising marks the return of Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron, all of whom reprise their respective roles for more unneighborly hostile and funny relationships. When Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) are expecting their second child, they come to the realization that they must move into a bigger house for their new family. But before they can sell their house, they have to make sure it can go through a 30-day escrow, which the two are worried won’t be a success because a newly established hard-partying sorority, Kappa Nu, led by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz), has moved into their neighboring house. In an effort to keep the buyers from moving out, the Radners recruit an old nemesis, Teddy (Efron), to help battle the sorority sisters.

We were recently invited to sit down with a group of our fellow journalist to talk to the three about Neighbors 2 during the film’s press junket where we spoke about what it was like to come back for the sequel, how an intern helped with the development of the story, parenthood, and the costs of making the airbag scene. Check out the full interview below.
