Zac Efron, Neighbors
What happens when one grown man and another slightly grown man can't along when they live next door to each other? Hijinks, and lots of it, if this new trailer for "Neighbors" is anything to go by.

Olga Kurylenko has joined the period drama that will find Crowe playing Connor, a father and farmer who searches for his sons who went missing-in-action in Turkey following the Gallipoli war.

Insidious 2
No fewer than three times during “Insidious: Chapter 2,” the sequel to James Wan’s hit 2010 horror entry, its central clan of haunted suburbanites seems to address the audience directly. “It’s still happening!” they exclaim to one another, and it’s true – objects rattle and familiar apparitions re-emerge regularly. But these winking outbursts bring up a self-aware question that the film believes it will answer, then proceeds to spectacularly mishandle: Why, besides a stellar opening weekend, does this extended narrative exist?

Zac Efron, Neighbors
Well here's a twist on two actors subverting their stereotypes. On the one hand, there's former Disney boy toy Zac Efron and on the other is pot connoisseur and slacker specialist Seth Rogen. So in the upcoming "Neighbors," guess which one is playing the frat boy?

Insidious 2,
As we noted in a feature earlier today, horror movies have been doing brisk business at the box office, and studios couldn't be happier. Cheaper than a traditional blockbuster, the genre has allowed filmmakers to take bigger risks, while studios profit handsomely from movies that are drawing in audiences in waves. And this fall, "Insidious" is hoping to build on the success it had two years ago.

There's a certain amount of winky irreverence built into "I Give It a Year," based on its title alone, which is something that people snarl, usually at the weddings of people who they feel are fundamentally incompatible. The title suggests that, while it might appear to be a bouncy romantic comedy, it has some seriously acidic undertones. This sensation is solidified once you know that Dan Mazer, one of Sacha Baron Cohen's confederates and a co-writer on both "Borat" and "Bruno," wrote and directed "I Give It a Year." Maybe it's the "Cabin in the Woods" of romantic comedies – something that simultaneously deconstructs the genre while celebrating it (and ultimately elevating it to the next plateau). Unfortunately, "I Give It a Year" is a woefully inept, unfunny, unsexy romantic comedy that falls into all the pitfalls and familiar genre tropes that it willingly tries to avoid.

Nearing the $100 million worldwide mark as it heads into its second full week of release, it's safe to say that audiences are loving the scares that James Wan is serving up. He makes 'em cheap, doesn't skimp on the thrills and as a result, no matter what you think of his movies, he packs 'em in for miles around. And one of Wan's biggest success stories is "Insidious," made for a tiny $1.5 million and earning $97 million worldwide. So of course, a sequel beckons and Wan doesn't seem to be changing the playbook all that much.

All kidding aside, this is an exciting week in the geek community as major movie studios, comic book companies, and video game developers all converge on San Diego for a week of pure nerd bliss. It’s also around this time that we start to get a lot of announcements and surprises from the studios looking to generate fan buzz. Today we have casting announcements for the upcoming “Annie” remake, news on another comic book character coming to life, and a female lead to star opposite of George Clooney in “Tomorrowland.”

For those of you who have been reading us for a while, you might remember that way back in the day, we did a two part feature on omnibus films, and basically it boils down to this: by their very nature, with numerous directors and actors taking part, it's very rare for these kinds of movies to work as a whole. Some segments will be great, while others will miss the mark, but the ambition is always admirable. Which is why we're keeping an eye on "The Turning," a movie we nearly forgot about.
