Animated sequel Despicable Me 2 comes out on July 3, reuniting us with Steve Carell's animated antihero Gru. Besides Gru's minions, there are more characters to check out this time around, including Lucy Wilde, voiced by the hilarious Kristen Wiig. We have an exclusive peek at Lucy, along with a cute clip of Wiig and Carell introducing the new character, who enters Gru's life and antagonizes him, but becomes his partner and friend (and maybe more, as you'll see!). Watch to see the two actors together and some cute footage from the film.
Nathan Fillon is Monsters University's resident big man on campus, but when I chatted with Fillion, the actor maintained that his real college persona was far from his animated character's. He also talked about what it's like to have your voice used for someone who's so flawed and smarmy, and how if he could voice any character, he'd pick an animated version of his short-lived series Firefly! Watch the interview to hear all that and more.
Miles Teller takes the lead in The Spectacular Now as a hard-partying teen who stops only to admire the beauty of his new love interest, played by Shailene Woodley. Set in a small town, the film (adapted from the popular novel) follows Sutter (Teller) after his girlfriend breaks up with him and he takes a sudden interest in a smart loner from school, Aimee (Woodley). She's not exactly in his crowd or into the same things, but their romance seems to change him for the better. Kyle Chandler, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Jennifer Jason Leigh also star.
I love these two leads in their roles, and I'm especially excited about seeing Teller take on a meatier part after his breakout role in Footloose a couple years ago. The movie got great reviews at Sundance, so I'm looking forward to it finally hitting theaters. The movie opens in limited release on Aug. 2, and until then, you can check out the trailer after the jump.
It's finally here! Just hours after gracing us with an epic mustache poster, we have the first full trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Ron Burgundy and his news team, including Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), are back and ready to tackle a 24-hour news channel. It's now the '80s, and aside from some subtle fashion updates, Ron is basically the same: vain, vaguely racist, and totally hilarious. The trailer is also star-studded, and it gives us a peek at the many cameos from the likes of Kristen Wiig and James Marsden, plus the return of Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate).
Even if you're a longtime fan who's afraid the sequel may not be as good as the original, there's no way you can't be psyched about this movie. I laughed out loud several times and seriously just can't wait for the privilege of hanging out with Ron Burgundy again. Anchorman: The Legend Continues comes out Dec. 20, and you can watch the trailer now after the jump.
This week, Brad Pitt will be pitted against an army of the undead in World War Z, but back in the day, he was just fighting his fellow (living) man in Fight Club. If you're a fan of the 1999 film starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, then you probably know the cardinal rule of Fight Club is that you're not supposed to talk about it — but that doesn't mean you can't quote it. Take a look at a few of my favorite lines from the movie, and then share your own in the comments!
- "The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club." — Tyler Durden
- "This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time." — The Narrator
- "The things you own end up owning you." — Tyler Durden
The Fifty Shades of Grey cast is still one of the most-buzzed-about topics in Hollywood, and many actors who have been rumored for roles have spoken up about the book's adaptation. Armie Hammer is the latest to address the sexy novel, but if you were rooting for him to play Christian, then you might be disappointed by his latest comments. Find out what he said, along with sound bites from other stars like Ryan Gosling, Emma Watson, and Mila Kunis, who have addressed the possibility of starring in the movie.

TV worlds have collided! New Girl's Jake Johnson, The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev, and Damon Wayans Jr., of the late but great Happy Endings, have converged on the set of upcoming comedy Let's Be Cops. The movie isn't set for release until next year, but thanks to Dobrev and Johnson, we've gotten some great behind-the-scenes shots. Click through to see the stars goofing around between takes!
Ron Burgundy is back in the building, and he's still kind of a big deal. OK, so he won't officially be back until Anchorman 2 opens in theaters on Dec. 30, but for now, we're getting another look at his infamous 'stache. What do you think: will this be just the beginning in a series of mustache posters? How long will we have to wait until we get a Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) mustache poster?
Since we've gotten details about the New York-set sequel's many cameos and a couple of teasers, my excitement for the film has already ascended to pretty high levels. Hopefully this means the full trailer will be coming out soon!
Check out the new poster after the jump.
The Bling Ring opens in wider release this weekend, and it marks Sofia Coppola's fifth time as director. The subject matter of a pack of young Hollywood-dwelling thieves may be new territory for her, but Coppola's latest effort still displays many of the trademarks that have become the director's signature. From the music to her muses and other things that scream Sofia, here are the elements you can expect to see in a Sofia Coppola film.
Charlie Day voices one of the characters in this week's release of Monsters University, the sequel to Pixar's Monsters Inc., and I sat down with the actor to chat about his voice role. The It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star talked about curbing his impulse to cuss for the family film, how his voice is perfect for an animated character, and his favorite Pixar movies.
