Among the The Weinstein Company's acquisitions prior to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival was the largely unknown (until it was bought) Aussie musical/drama/comedy effort "The Sapphires." It's certainly easy to see why this easy-to-digest, feel-good movie earned their attention. With a slate last year that included "Lawless," "Django Unchained," "The Master" and "Killing Them Softly" they probably thought they could use a film that's guaranteed to have broad appeal, and that's something the first-time feature film from director Wayne Blair carries in spades. And it's largely thanks to the winning charm of unlikely leading man Chris O'Dowd.

Chris O’Dowd is having a moment. He first turned heads in the British sitcom “The IT Crowd,” and since his turn as Kristen Wiig’s love interest in the breakout hit “Bridesmaids” he’s racked up roles in two more Judd Apatow projects: Lena Dunham’s HBO series “Girls” and in Apatow’s own directorial effort “This Is 40.” And it looks the comedy world isn’t enough for O’Dowd as he’s revealed that he has a role in a major blockbuster this year.

Last night, "Girls" closed out its second season with a rather lacklustre finale, and while "Game Of Thrones" is HBO's next big series out the gate, later this spring they'll be returning with more laughs. The second season of "Veep" will kick off in April, with a new trailer recently arriving, and then in May, Christopher Guest will make a long awaited return with "Family Tree." And the first teaser promises a lot of familiar faces from his usual collective...

While its 135-minute running time may have made it too long for some viewers, once again Judd Apatow reminds us just how much longer “This Is 40” could’ve been. He’s already graced us with four other deleted scenes, which range from topics like the Kardashians to Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong’s death metal side project. Here, we get to see a bit more from Megan Fox, Jason Segel and Chris O’Dowd’s characters from the movie.

Generally, getting a show on television first requires shooting a pilot that hopefully the network likes, after which they'll order up a bunch of episodes and hopefully you'll make it past the first season. But sometimes, a project just makes sense right out of the gate, and that's how HBO feels about "Family Tree."

Damn, the trailer for "3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom" looks strange. In a really good way. So how do we explain the madness therein? Let's go to the official synopsis which is brief: Frank Bartlett has been tortured, embarrassed and humiliated by his brother Bruce -- usually on film -- his entire life. Now that Bruce is finally off drugs and has turned his life around, things should be different. They are not.

There are few comedies that will hit theaters this year as strange and odd as "Frankie Go Boom." And the first clip/teaser has arrived, in the wake of the film's Comic-Con appearance, and it gives you a pretty good idea of just how far out there this one is.

Before the Cannes Film Festival even began this year, The Weinstein Company made their usual round of high-profile acquisitions, and among the more curious selections, a largely unknown Aussie flick called “The Sapphires” made its way into the mix.
