Michael Cera, John C. Reilly, Rick Alverson, Entertainment
Presumably Hollywood's next hot thing, with "Fifty Shades Of Grey" ready to shackle up audiences next year, Dakota Johnson is probably getting more than a few things crossing her desk. And one of them is "Forever, Interrupted." The actress will star in the adaptation of the Taylor Jenkins Reid novel about "a young woman who elopes after a whirlwind romance and then must face the sudden death of her adoring husband. She must come to terms with his loss while forming an unlikely relationship with his mother — who didn't know she existed." No word yet on who will write or direct.

Me, Jonah Hill, SNL Spoof
The spoofs keeping rolling in for "Her," with the man/machine romance sparking some fun takes on the movie. So far, we've seen what Samantha sounds like as voiced by Philip Seymour Hoffman, as well as watched the parody sequel, "Him." Now comes yet another riff on the movie entitled, "Me."

It has been six years since we've had anything on any screen from the mind of Charlie Kaufman. It was 2008 when he delivered "Synecdoche, New York" and since then, while the promise of this Hollywood satire/musical "Frank Or Francis" has been teased, it has yet to find the momentum or money/support to get made. But once again, television is giving someone of Kaufman's unique talent a place to flourish. Last spring came word that over at FX, Kaufman was writing a TV series called "How And Why," but there were few other details. But today, not only does it have stars but we now know a little of what it's all about.

Review: 'Crystal Fairy' Starring Michael Cera & Gaby Hoffmann

Michael Cera, Crystal Fairy
"Guess if Michael Cera's dead, it's not a total loss right?" Danny McBride says in probably the funniest moment in the teaser for “This Is The End,” a new apocalyptic comedy starring Cera and McBride along with an all-star roster of mostly Apatow-bred comedians all playing distorted versions of themselves. Though nobody actually wants to see Cera dead, McBride’s sentiment nevertheless registers with a large section of the public who decided a few years ago that they’d had enough of Cera. Despite appearing in just five films from 2008-2010, audiences seemed burned out on his persona – despite changing it up in underseen films like “Youth In Revolt” – and so the damage was done. After a meteoric rise, he seemed to take the hint that he wasn’t necessarily being appreciated in these roles and so he’s been largely absent from screens for the past three years. But between the return of his epochal series “Arrested Development” this spring on Netflix and roles in two films by “The Maid” filmmaker Sebastian Silva, 2013 is the year we must welcome Cera back into our hearts.

This Is The End, Hill, Rihanna
With a domestic box-office haul of nearly $60 million in two weeks, on a budget of $31 million, it should come no surprise that the idea of a “This is the End” sequel is being entertained. But with the comedy already dealing with the apocalypse and loaded with tons of celebrity cameos, is there much creative room for a sequel? Evan Goldberg seems to thinks so.

Michael Cera, Crystal Fairy
It seems there's no stopping Michael Cera at the moment. Dude is on a tear with "Arrested Development" now back with a new season (in which he not only acted, but also co-wrote), a hit comedy in theaters ("This Is The End," in which he features in a great cameo) and various web efforts courtesy of JASH including shorts "Gregory Go Boom" and "Failure." And that's not mention his arthouse movies, including the upcoming "Magic Magic" (trailer here) and now "Crystal Fairy" (renamed for some reason to "Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus," as if that will make it more enticing to Joe Average movie dude).

If you’re looking for a little humor, romance, and horror in your day, you might want to give actors Michael Cera and Aubrey Plaza four-minutes of your time. Cera is part of a YouTube comedy collective known as JASH, which includes members Sarah Silverman and Tim & Eric and more, and the group has put out quite a number short films and oddball videos in its brief history.

It premiered at Sundance earlier this year and played at the Directors' Fortnight last month at Cannes, but it seems Sebastian Silva’s “Magic Magic” will not be playing at a theater near you. Instead, it’s going straight to DVD. What’s up with that? Either way, the first official trailer for the psychological thriller has just been posted online, giving you a taste of what the film’s all about.
