Sex Tape
As far as weird on-screen sexual scenarios go, Cameron Diaz has had her fair share. After all, she is the only actress in the history of the medium to have styled her hair with male ejaculate ("There's Something About Mary"), been involved in some kind of weird old timey abortion ("Gangs of New York") and, well, f*cked a car ("The Counselor"). So it's not much of a surprise that she'd be involved in a movie like "Sex Tape," a ribald comedy about a suburban couple (Jason Segel as her husband) who make a homemade porno and then promptly lose it -- leading to a madcap scramble to retrieve the video, maintain their privacy, and continue a life of relative upper middle class normalcy. What is surprising, however, is how bland "Sex Tape" is. On the scale of on-screen Cameron Diaz sexual outrageousness, it's pretty tepid.

Sex Tape
Audience taste can be ever changing and fickle—what was the hot flavor last year, can be sour the next time around. Just ask Melissa McCarthy, who brought "Tammy" to the July 4th weekend, delivering her usual fare of outlandish, boorish humor, to the collective shrug of the moviegoing public. So you have to wonder what ticket buyers will do with "Sex Tape."

Sex Tape
You can't make a sex tape without getting naked, and so it would follow that you can't make a movie called "Sex Tape" without getting naked either, and Cameron Diaz promises that both she and co-star Jason Segel take it off (and probably get it on) in the comedy. "It's a first for me. But Jason gets naked, too. It's just a part of the role. So I did it. I mean you see everything," she told Esquire.

Sex Tape
A few years ago, Jason Segel put it all out there, going full frontal in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," and as he tells Vanity Fair, his mother wasn't ready for it. "She cried," he said, adding that sent an email to the rest of the family saying, “I would like to inform you all that Jason has chosen to do full-frontal nudity, however, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot.” Whether or not we'll get Full Segel in "Sex Tape" remains to be seen, but he's once again stepping into a raunchy comedy.

Sex Tape
Did you care for Sony’s “Bad Teacher”? Would you want to see a sequel? The movie was just okay, right? But before you forget, that R-rated comedy grossed $216 million worldwide. You might not think those are spectacular numbers, but it is higher than “Knocked-Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” two mid/late aughts pictures that were heralded for making the R-rated comedy bankable again.

Annie
Why remake childhood favorite "Annie"? Well, because they can and that's just what Sony has done, entrusting the job to "Easy A" director Will Gluck, screenwriters Aline Brosh McKenna and Emma Thompson, and producers Will Smith and Jay Z. So yes, they brought the talent and the result is...this?

The Other Woman
It looks like this summer, Cameron Diaz is going to be working through sexy relationship problems. Last night we got the red band trailer for "Sex Tape," which finds Diaz and Jason Segel looking for the titular video when it threatens to go viral. And now here she is in "The Other Woman," teaming up with the wife of a boyfriend who kept his marriage hidden, and exacting some kind of revenge.

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."

What happens when Jay Z and Will Smith get together to do something? Whatever the hell they want, and it they decided to use their producing powers to bring orphan "Annie" back to the big screen. And the first trailer is here to show you that a lot has changed since the 1982 original.

Ridley Scott Says He Prefers Director's Cut Of 'The Counselor,' Mocks Fox Studio's Prudishness

The Counselor
When "The Counselor" was released last fall, it was an intriguing conundrum: how had Ridley Scott, the one-time bad boy auteur behind "Blade Runner" and "Alien," taken the first original screenplay by legendary American author Cormac McCarthy (of "No Country for Old Men" and "The Road" fame), and turned in something so vacant and bizarre? We puzzled over this at the time, both in our review and in comparing the final version to the lengthier, filthier, more philosophically-minded screenplay. With the recent release of the Blu-ray, not only do we get a more satisfying cut of the movie, but its accompanying commentary provides a shockingly honest and insightful glimpse into who Scott is as a filmmaker today.
