The To Do-List
For those of us who came of age in the '90s it has not been uncommon to notice a certain nostalgia creeping up on you these last few years. At first maybe you were happy to revisit some old songs or movies you hadn't heard/seen in a while but before you knew it, pop culture artifacts you didn't particularly even care for at the time seemed to bring back fond memories of a decade that now seems oh so far away (Gin Blossoms were actually a pretty good band, you guys). The new sex comedy "The To Do List," is set distinctively in the summer of 1993 and is one of the first films to transport us back to the pre-internet age of Coolio and "Clueless." If it seems too soon to start thinking about the '90s as a period piece, consider this: "Dazed and Confused" was set in 1976 and released in 1993 which means that we're now further from 1993 (when "The To Do List" is set) today than we were from the distance in Richard Linklater's stoner, coming-of-age classic. Yes, it's time to be nostalgic about the '90s.

The To Do-List
Blowjobs! Handjobs! Pearl Necklace! SEX! Do we have you attention? It's summer, the days are long, the nights are hot and everyone is half naked anyway, so it's the perfect recipe for getting it on. And CBS Films is hoping to tap into those hormonal urges with "The To Do List," the upcoming raunchy sex comedy and now some new looks are here to get you wet.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
One of the biggest, most pleasant surprises of 2009 was "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs." Loosely based on the slim children's book by Judi and Ron Barrett, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who at the time were best known for their cult TV series "Clone High"), and produced by the relatively unproven Sony Animation, it seemingly came out of nowhere and totally delighted just about everyone who saw it. Of course, an unexpected hit always leads to a more expected follow-up, so this fall we're getting "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2," whose new trailer just dropped online.

Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons and Donald Glover in The To Do List
What's on your to do list this summer? Maybe get a job, ask that girl or guy out who works at that store downtown and perhaps spend some long weekends with some friends. Either way, we're betting your list isn't quite the same as Brandy's in "The To Do List." Unless handjobs are an essential part of your summer plans....

With the summer tentpoles already beginning to reach theaters, many actors are now nabbing jobs to secure themselves through the end of the year and into the next. Here's a rundown of the upcoming roles that have been inked in the last couple of days.

We're still a little puzzled that Bill Hader isn't a bigger star. The actor's consistently been a highlight of "Saturday Night Live" since he joined the show in 2005, and has stolen the show in films including "Hot Rod," "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Tropic Thunder," "Adventureland" and "Superbad," but has never broken out to become a lead, at least in live-action (he voiced the lead in the excellent 2009 animation "Cloudy With Chance Of Meatballs," and has both "Cloudy 2" and DreamWorks' "Me And My Shadow" on the way).

"Bill Hader and I have a project together where we play twins, both incredibly depressed, and it’s actually really serious. It’s already written. It’s called 'The Skeleton Twins.' We’re just hoping that financing will come along soon, but it’s a great project," Anna Faris told Vulture this spring. How things change. Presumably, the comic actress is taking some time to spend with her new baby boy, but luckily for Hader the project is moving on and it now reteams him with an old friend.

Last month, the plot for Larry David's upcoming improvised comedy was revealed, ending what was an unusual amount of secrecy for the creator of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm." At the time, the project still lacked a name and only had confirmed the casting of Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and David himself. With HBO stepping in over the summer to release the film, the project is taking shape for a fall shoot and is putting together its cast, roughly about half of Hollywood.

Slowly shaping up to be one of the more unique productions this year, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” has gradually acquired a talented cast fit for its two-film premise -- that of a troubled marriage told, in each installment, from the husband and the wife's perspective. A few weeks back Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy were locked in as the couple, and now a slew of new names have come up just as the film heads into shooting.

Watch: Steven Spielberg Joins Andy Samberg & Bill Hader On 'SNL' For 'Laser Cats 7'

Steven Spielberg has always preferred to balance the serious and the light-hearted, often alternating between heavier fare and popcorn entertainment from picture to picture (look no further than 2011's "War Horse" and "The Adventures Of Tintin"). And with the director currently in post on his dream project/Oscar bait "Lincoln," he's taken a quick breather from the sober historical flick to join Andy Samberg and Bill Hader for the "Saturday Night Live" digital short "Laser Cats 7." And the results are somewhat amusing, even if this laser cats thing is already kinda played.
