Typically a film with a January release date doesn’t exactly scream blockbuster. I liken it to a Friday night timeslot. Is it the studio’s lack of confidence in the film’s prospects as to why it hits theaters January 15, 2015, or simply just to take advantage of the lucrative Martin Luther holiday long weekend. Either way, I have to say The Wedding Ringer doesn’t look half bad.

Kevin Hart plays a best man for hire who’ll stand alongside any groom lacking friends to fill up the bridal party. Groom-to-be Josh Gad is in that exact predicament and needs to find seven guys to match his bride Kaley Cuoco’s side. Ken Howard, Mimi Rogers, Cloris Leachman and Alan Ritchson round out the cast. Check out The Wedding Ringer trailer below.

If you liked The Blindside, you’re going to love this. The Good Lie is another heartwarming film based on a true story, coincidentally brought to us by the same producers as Sandra Bullock’s football drama.

Taking the part of the straight-talking woman set to make things right is Reese Witherspoon. She takes in four young Sudanese refugees (known as Lost Boys of Sudan) who win a lottery for relocation to the United States. House of CardsCorey Stoll also appears in the film.

The Good Lie was shot in Atlanta, Georgia. If you recall, this is the project Reese was shooting when she was infamously caught on film on a drunken tirade towards a police officer. The Philippe Falardeau-directed film hits theaters on October 2. Check out the trailer below.

The Expendables 3 Premiere First Full Length Trailer

The first one was surprisingly entertaining with its nod to vintage vigilante films. The sequel sucked major balls. Hopefully, the franchise finishes its trilogy with a bang. The first two-minute trailer is already a massive improvement over the last film.

Joining the geriatric mercenaries for the third lap are Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz and Kelsey Grammer. They join returning vigilantes Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Arnold Schwarzenegger and naturally Sly Stallone.

Bruce Willis was set to return but was booted for asking for too much money ($4 million) for four days of shooting. Stallone tweeted, “GREEDY AND LAZY . . . A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”

The Expendables 3 will be released on August 15, 2014. Patrick Hughes steps in to direct the latest installment, replacing Stallone and Simon West who helmed the first and second film respectively. Check out the first trailer below.

Anna Kendrick Is A Troll

No, not of the heinous variety that live under a bridge. Rather, it’s those colorful big haired dolls popular with kids during the 60s and 90s.

DreamWorks Animations announced Anna Kendrick will appear in their upcoming musical Trolls playing the “relentlessly upbeat princess” Poppy. Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After) is directing the film set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.

“Anna has proven herself to be a brilliant actress with an amazing singing voice,” Mitchell said. “She’ll inject Poppy with the exact mix of spirit, sass and song that will no doubt give a whole new life to the iconic Troll dolls.”

The 28-year-old actress has certainly proven she’s got the pipes in Pitch Perfect. She followed that up with a wonderfully amusing stint on Saturday Night Live, singing in several skits. Upcoming music-themed projects include Disney’s musical Into The Woods and the highly-anticipated Pitch Perfect sequel.

Were you a Troll doll collector? Excited Kendrick is part of this project? Weigh in below.

You gotta love Colin Firth. I picture him to be a very charming lovely humorous man in real life. His recent interview indicates I’m correct with my assumption.

The 53-year-old actor has exited from the upcoming film Paddington by quoting Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous term “concious uncoupling.” Firth was to voice the iconic loveable bear.

“It’s been bittersweet to see this delightful creature take shape and come to the sad realization that he simply doesn’t have my voice,” Colin told Empire Online. “After a period of denial we’ve chosen conscious uncoupling. I’ve had the joy of seeing most of the film and it’s going to be quite wonderful. I still feel rather protective of this bear and I’m pestering them all with suggestions for finding a voice worthy of him.”

With Paddington now temporarily silenced, producers are on the hunt to find a new voice. This sort of thing isn’t uncommon. Scarlett Johansson famously replaced Samantha Morton in Spike Jonze’s Her as did Modern Family’s Ty Burrell with Robert Downey Jr. in DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman. It appears though that Firth’s departure is an amicable and mutual one.

Rumors of Jason Momoa joining Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice first surfaced late last year. Back then, speculation was he was either playing Doomsday or Martian Manhunter. Since then, he’s adamantly denied being in negotiations. Someone’s been lying ;) Variety.com reports he’s officially part of the cast. However, he’s taking on a different role and it’s not one that you’d expect at first.

Whitney Houston isn’t the only R&B singer’s life Lifetime plans on telling in an upcoming biopic. The network announced today Aaliyah’s short-lived career is also heading to the small screen.

Based off Christopher Farley’s bestselling biography Aaliyah: More Than a Woman, the project is tentatively titled Aaliyah: Princess of R&B. Surprisingly, it’s the first biopic about the 22-year-old phenom who tragically died in a plane crash in the 90s.

While an ANTM model was tapped to play Houston, a singer-actress has been plucked to play the “Try Again” singer. Zendaya Coleman, star of Disney Channel’s Shake It Up!, will put her acting and singing skills on display for the role. Coleman also appeared on the 16th season of Dancing With The Stars where she just missed winning and placed runner-up to Kellie Pickler. Lifetime plans to air the original movie sometime this Fall. Read the official press release below. Be sure to also check out my five favorite Aaliyah tracks here.

Based on all the makeout sessions featured in the new promo for White Bird In A Blizzard, one could easily mistake Shailene Woodley’s film as another teen romance. It’s a wise marketing move given how hot Shailene’s career is since propelling Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars to box office glory.

In actuality, her latest is a thriller where Woodley’s life is turned upside down when her mother (Eva Green) suddenly disappears. The film was co-produced, written and directed by Gregg Araki and first premiered at 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It’s slated to hit theaters this October.

Playing her love interest in the film is Shiloh Fernandez who’s seen swapping spit with Woodley in school, pool, on a car and everywhere else. Recently, the 22-year-old actress revealed to New York Magazine that filming the sex scenes with Fernandez was “so much fun.” I don’t blame her. He’s not half bad.

Rounding out the cast are Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU), Jacob Artist (Glee), Angela Bassett (Waiting To Exhale), Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious). Check out the teaser below.
