YouTube's Figglehorn Goes 3-D as Lionsgate's Night of the Living Fred

Lucas Cruikshank's YouTube creation and sensation "Fred Figglehorn" is getting a 3-D movie. Lionsgate, Varsity Pictures and The Collective are producing Night of the Living Fred, which is a follow-up to 2010's Fred: The Movie (which debuted on Nickelodeon). While Lionsgate has North American distribution rights, they are selling international rights to the film. Family Guy's David A. Goodman wrote the script and John Fortenberry (Blue Mountain State) is directing. Lionsgate production/development president Michael Paseornek says:“We're always excited to partner with talent who has a direct relationship with a broad online fan base, because there are so many possibilities for engaging that audience throughout the filmmaking and marketing process.  Lucas is a true next generation entertainer, and we are so proud to bring Fred, the unique character he created, to his fans in 3D. Fred has already conquered the online world and achieved record ratings for Nickelodeon, and we believe he's ready for his feature film debut."

Trailer Watch: Is Crazy, Stupid, Love Gosling's Crazy, Stupid Sellout?

We hope Ryan Gosling isn't selling out. But judging from this trailer, it looks like he has abandoned his usual dark indie depths for pretty-boy womanizing. The pairing of Gosling and Steve Carell and co-stars Julianne Moore and Emma Stone may in fact be the best-looking rom-com since...a really long time ago. The film, from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You, Phillip Morris, Bad Santa), comes out July 29.

Arthur Early Reviews: "Dispiritingly Witless," "Crude instead of Whimsical"
In this remake of the 1981 classic, Arthur, Russell Brand takes on Dudley Moore's comic drunk, joined by Helen Mirren (in John Gielgud's butler role) and rival girlfriends Greta Gerwig and Jennifer Garner. Directed by Jason Winer (TV's Modern Family) from Peter Baynham's revamp of Steve Gordon's original script, this ensemble relationship comedy is failing to find critical validation.
