Sex Tape
The last time we saw Jason Segel naked, he was being dumped in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," but in "Sex Tape," he's getting down and dirty with Cameron Diaz. And he's even looking a bit fitter doing it. "I took heat for 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' where I was completely nude. But different characters require different body types," he told US Weekly about dropping weight for the movie. "It is R-rated, and I'm not in shape for no reason."

Wolf Creek 2
Yep, it's about ten years since Greg McLean took audiences to the outback and scared them silly with "Wolf Creek." The original only made around $27 million worldwide, but it was enough to spawn this follow-up a decade later, and it looks like it's more harrowing horror in the wilds of Australia.

We're surprised it took this long. After the smash success of "Magic Mike" in 2012, we figured Hollywood would be flooding the market with movies featuring buff dudes taking off their shirts. Well, "Magic Mike XXL" is on the way with a director selected to take on the gig, and they'll have some competition around the stripper pole.

Buzzard
It's hard to look away from the face of Joshua Burge: his bug eyes recall Peter Lorre in their constant vigilant paranoia. But his angular femininity that comes from his soft mouth and sleek cheekbones suggest an approachability that contrasts with the sharpness of his more intimidating features. He would have played villains and scoundrels in the silent era, ones that had a vulnerable secret. Joel Potrykus' “Buzzard” reveals that not much has changed since then.

Norman Reedus,Walking Dead
John Hillcoat always nabs great casts. “Lawless” had Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, I’m Not Famous Anymore, and many others. And now Deadline reports that “Walking Dead” dirtbag Norman Reedus has joined the cast of his latest, the contemporary cop thriller “Triple Nine.” This spectacular cast already includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Kate Winslet and Gal Gadot. Damyo. Nick Cave will likely write the score again.

McCanick
Certain ingredients are essential to gritty cop dramas. Especially for the ones that blur the lines between protagonist and antagonist by having an anti-hero be the central character. In recent films and TV shows, the anti-hero has been on the steady rise, from Walter White in “Breaking Bad” to Jordan Belfort in “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” so now seems the right time for a film like Josh C. Waller's “McCanick.” But when placing this film into its particular genre—unavoidable thanks to the film's overuse of every single ingredient—the mind immediately recalls narcotic detective dramas like “Training Day” and “Narc.” Unfortunately for Waller and David Morse, who plays the titular detective and has clearly invested enough in the film to get an executive producer cred, comparisons to any film of its kind are not too friendly.

Watch: Errol Morris Uses Ronald McDonald To Promote Taco Bell In New Series Of Ads

Errol Morris
While he's best known for his documentary work, Errol Morris has long been a commercials director too, cranking out spots for major brands like Apple, Adidas, Nike, Toyota, Volkswagen and many, many more. And the results are always the most satisfying when he brings his own, distinct interview and observational style to the small screen. Read More »

Animated/Live Action ‘Pink Panther’ Film In The Works, Will Focus On Cartoon Character, Not Inspector Clouseau

The Pink Panther
MGM got a lot of mileage out of Blake Edwards’ “Pink Panther” series. Five films with Peter Sellers (including a 6th after his death with unused footage and stand-ins to help complete it), one with Alan Arkin, two one-offs with Roger Moore and Roberto Benigni and a rebooted series in the aughts with Steve Martin. Adjusted for inflation, the movies made a collected $875 million worldwide. But what about the signature cartoon Pink Panther himself? It was a cartoon in the ‘70s, but not fully exploited on the big screen. Hmmm… we smell a new franchise.

John C. Reilly, The Lobster'
Fuck, pardon my French, this cast rules. You should know and love Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos. He directed “Dogtooth” and “Alps” and quickly landed as a Cannes favorite and one-to-watch shortly thereafter. In case you’ve forgotten, he’s making his English-Language debut, it’s called “The Lobster” and it already features the star-studded cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux, Olivia Colman, Ariane Labed (“Alps”) and Angeliki Papoulia (“Dogtooth”).

Darren Aronofsky, The Wolverine, ‘Man Of Steel
After years of being a celebrated indie, relatively non-mainstream filmmaker, director Darren Aronofsky has the number one movie in the country with his biblical epic “Noah” (and it should be noted it’s a pretty dark, non-mainstreamy tentpole). And while he’s flirted with many super hero movies over the years, perhaps the Russell Crowe-starring movie will finally get him there. “In reality, our original super heroes were characters the Bible so these were the original super hero stories. People have forgotten how amazing these stories were,” Aronofsky said in a recent EPK interview.
