It's an underrated little gem, but the director of "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story," starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, is back. Truthfully, Rawson Marshall Thurber didn't really go anywhere, but 2008's indie “The Mysteries of Pittsburgh” wasn’t terribly well received. He's now back in studio comedy mode -- studio action comedy mode, to be specific -- with "We're The Millers." Starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Will Poulter, and Ed Helms, Thurber's latest has a bevy of strong comedic talent and centers on a veteran pot dealer (Sudeikis) who creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

The only thing you need to know about "Movie 43" is that it features a ton of short comedy segments, with a bunch of stars, and if you don't like the one you're currently watching, you don't have to worry because the next one is just around the corner. While the first trailer did it's best to give a broad overview of what audiences are in for, this new, filthy red band spot narrows down the scope a bit more.

The TV season is about to get underway, with a handful of shows already starting airing, and, for the most part, there's not an awful lot to get excited about. A few shows that have our interest (mostly hitting cable in the New Year), and some returning favorites, obviously, but a thin slate of new series by most accounts. But that doesn't mean there isn't anything coming down the pipe, as a few announcements in the last few days have made clear.

20th Century Fox and Blue Sky have certainly never been shy about padding out their animated movies with as many big time celebrity voices as possible, and while the jury is still out on whether or not it makes a difference to the quality of the end product, it certainly can't hurt, and it makes the red carpet a lot more fun.

For the most part, Adam Shankman has been known for big screen spectacle, bringing to multiplexes the likes of "Bedtime Stories," "Hairspray" and this summer's '80s musical "Rock Of Ages." But the helmer is looking to shift gears a bit as earlier this year he signed on to direct an adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's best selling novel "This Is Where I Leave You." Never one lacking for an all star cast, Shankman has gathered up yet another strong group of talent to help him tell the tale.

Here's a project that has been stuck in development hell, that we kind of figured was left for dead. In various stages of development for nearly a decade, "We're The Millers" saw folks like directors John Morris and Sean Anders, and actors Will Arnett and Steve Buscemi go through the revolving door. Last summer reports surfaced that Jason Bateman would take over the lead role, but now it looks like another casting change up is in the works.

While everyone likes to trumpet the summer success stories of "The Hangover Part II" and "Bridesmaids," one other R-rated comedy fared quite well also, though it hasn't been mentioned as often. "Horrible Bosses" was also a super-sized smash, with the workplace comedy scoring over $200 million worldwide, all on a minimal budget of $35 million. It seems people really like to see bosses getting their commeupance. Well, fans will be happy to know, the trio of Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis will once again face unruly employers as New Line is moving ahead with a sequel.

Sort of like the comedy world version of Jessica Chastain, the "Saturday Night Live" funnyman seemed to be everywhere this year. In addition to starring in "Hall Pass," "Horrible Bosses" and "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" he also hosted the MTV Movie Awards this summer and will feature in the final season of "Eastbound & Down." And determined to make sure you see his face on the big screen at least once every few months in 2012, the actor has signed up for yet another project.
