Emma Roberts proves that she can be just as beguiling as a Juno or an Enid Coleslaw with her role in Adult World. She stars as a college student aspiring to be the world’s most famous poet. However,  that distinction belongs to Maya Angelou and you do not want to make that woman take off her earrings. Trapped in a world where everyone thinks her poetry sucks, Roberts must get a job selling dildos for Cloris Leachman. It’s through this experience that she finds her true voice… writing while drunk.

Forced by his supplier to smuggle “a smidge of marijuana” across the border, Jason Sudeikis‘s low-level pot dealer devises the perfect plan — hire a fake family and mask the entire operation as a nice family vacation. Of course, things go off the rails as they’re forced to strip by druglords, pursued Johnny Law, encounter swingers, and suffer from a pretty heinous groin injury. Ah, reminds me of my own family’s summers at the lake.

The upcoming romantic comedy Celeste and Jesse Forever has Rashida Jones (as an actress AND screenwriter), Andy Samberg, an intriguing premise about a married couple trying to remain friends amidst their impending divorce, and a director in Lee Toland Krieger. What it doesn’t have, is a sassy gay friend played by Elijah Wood. UNTIL … NOW:

“Wood will play Celeste’s business partner, a metrosexual who tries to be her ‘saucy gay friend’.”

He’s also joining Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor and Chris Messina. Wood has a lot of projects coming up, including the animated series “TRON: Uprising,” Happy Feet Two, the FX series “Wilfred,” and of course Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit. How he’s planning on figuring out the subtle nuances of the “saucy gay friend” with all that on his plate remains to be seen. I wish you luck, girlfriend! (The Hollywood Reporter)

With Bridesmaids being pelted with rice at the box office (in this instance, rice = dollars), it’s a good time to be a female-driven comedy. That may explain why Rashida JonesCeleste and Jesse Forever is finally moving forward after being shelved twice. The comedy-drama about a married couple who for some strange reason try to remain friends and roommates while going through a divorce has Jones and Andy Samberg secured to play the leads, and know we know that Emma Roberts, Chris Messina, and Ari Graynor are going to play the loveable knuckleheads who surround them.

Roberts will play “a starlet who, when her career sags, helps the protagonist come out of her shell by hiring her to revamp her image. Messina plays a financial analyst who helps Celeste get over Jesse, while Graynor will play Celeste’s best friend from college who’s uncomfortable with her unusual arrangement.” Frankly, I don’t buy it. Why would Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg get a divorce? Are his awkward raps not adorable enough for her?? Rap more adorably, Samberg. You’ve got a wife to think about now. (Variety)

Scream 4 actress Emma Roberts is making a name for herself. It helps that that name happens to be Roberts (as in Julia and Eric) but by all accounts the young Roberts seems to be working it solo. From early beginnings as a Nickelodeon kid, Roberts has gradually made her way into more grown-up roles, most recently positioning herself as a recurring face in the indie coming-of-age scene (see: It’s Kind of a Funny Story and The Art of Getting By). She’ll come of age once again next year in Adult World, a film about a recent college grad who realizes that trying to make it as a professional writer is kind of a shitty gig. Wait, can I be in that movie? At least make me a consultant. Or the guy who gets the coffee. I could really use the money here, man.

A word from Emma: “I think there are a lot of people out there who say the really low blow of “She’s just in the business because of her family”. I do it because I love to do it.”

The post Review: Scream 4 appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Scream 4 is typical of a sequel that comes long after the previous franchise in an attempt to bring it back. It’s got all the hallmarks of the series we love to see again and we get to catch up with all the characters, but it feels forced and uninspired.

The next generation of Woodsboro catches up with Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) on the anniversary of the original murders. Kids have erected Ghostfaces all over the city street lamps. Killings start again, but it’s the young generation that interprets the rules now.

I totally realize that I’m too old for this movie. Scream 4 is for the internet generation, and I’ve kept up as best I could, but I am simply not the person a movie about webcam and found footage is for. That’s for them. So maybe this is the Scream 1 for a new generation.

I still think the statement is too on the nose. It’s not a satire of the web generation, and they barely address what it means to the Scream formula when everybody has their own personal cell phone. The film simply identifies their habits, but that’s not a commentary. Plus, webcam boys Robbie (Erik Knudsen) and Charlie (Rory Culkin) are no Randy.

The opening sequence manages to surprise the audience and go meta. It’s not organic to any kind of storytelling, but it’s adjusting the formula to a generation built on texting and apps so it’s fun. When they talk about torture porn and Saw movies, I definitely feel like they don’t actually understand that genre like the screenwriter understood slasher movies. They just mention the talking points. Hard to know whether that’s Kevin Williamson or Ehren Kruger. And having the girls watch Shaun of the Dead? No. Just no.

It’s still a mystery, which is a strength of sorts to keep telling stories and guessing games. They’ve got 7 Saws to compete with now though. A scene in the car introducing Jill (Emma Roberts), Kirby (Hayden Panettiere) and Olivia (Marielle Jaffe) is just blatant exposition, no matter how many references they drop in the dialogue. We do get to find out who directed Stab so that’s funny.

There is an unintended meta effect about Gale (Courteney Cox) and Dewey (David Arquette). When Gale and Dewey have relationship conflict, it becomes really uncomfortable to watch. They can’t help that, but it’s a powerful unintentional comment on how the media affects our viewing.

It’s weird, thinking about Scream 4 intellectually, it feels like everything is right and it should work. I just know I wasn’t connecting. I actually liked Scream 3. I liked the meta of setting it on the movie set where they’re making the movie version of the story we’re watching, and Jay and Silent Bob go on the studio tour. I also like in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back where Wes Craven is directing Scream 4 and the killer turns out to be the monkey.

I think Detention ruined me for Scream 4. That’s the new meta self-referential masterpiece, but no one else has seen it yet. Maybe I’ll appreciate Scream 4 some day, in a cultural vacuum or historical context. It took me 13 years to finally appreciate Scream 2. Next time I watch them all back to back, it may fall into place, so there’s hope.

So Odd Thomas struck out with Lily Collins (The Blind Side). Collins was the frontrunner to play Stormy Llewellyn in the Dean Koontz adaptation, but decided she wanted to play one of the 200 Snow Whites in one of the 200 Snow White movies coming out – specifically, Th Brothers Grimm: Snow White for Relativity Media.

Who will date the dead people-seeing, short-order cook played by Anton Yelchin now? Rumors say it’ll be Addison Timlin from “Californication,” who would beat out the likes of Emma RobertsPortia Doubleday, and Kat Dennings. See, flashing your boobs on Showtime can only lead to great things.

Stephen Sommers is directing his own script. (Variety)

Dean Koontz fans, are you ready to get excited? Or rather, are you ready to casually acknowledge that another major role in the film adaptation of Odd Thomas has almost been filled? Nod your head nonchalantly and we’ll begin.

The role of Stormy Llewellyn, which sounds like a dragon porn star‘s name, has been offered to Lily Collins (The Blind Side). She beat out a bunch of other young ladies, like Emma Roberts, Portia Doubleday, and Kat Dennings, for the opportunity to play Anton Yelchin‘s girlfriend. That’s something worth Yelchin about. We’ll see if she accepts the part.

Directed by Stephen Sommers, the plot concerns California desert townie Thomas, “a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities who encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark, threatening forces.” Sounds like Odd lives up to his name. Production will start May 2, provided ghosts don’t screw up the filming. As long as they stay in their special trailer, like they’re supposed to, everything will be fine. (Variety)

The past few years have seen Emma Roberts emerge as an up and coming young actress in films like It’s Kind Of A Funny Story. Her next project, the Scott Coffey directed Adult World, sounds like a good opportunity for her to continue to put kiddie fare like Nancy Drew and Hotel For Dogs even further in her rearview. Adult World centers around a post-grad who aspires to be a poet but gets stuck working in a small bookstore. With a name like Adult World and a setting like a bookstore, is it a stretch to think it might be about an ADULT bookstore? Look, I’m just sayin’. I’m not gross! I’m just supposin’ over here. This isn’t fair. You’re the weird one! Whatever. (The Playlist)

Chloe Moretz, Lyndsy Fonseca, Emma Roberts, Saoirse Ronan, Kaya Scodelario, Emily Browning and Shailene Woodley are just a few of the actresses who are up for the lead in the high profile adaptation of the bestselling young adult novel The Hunger Games. Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Jennifer Lawrence are also in the running for the part of the poor teenage girl who offers to compete in the titular game, a televised fight to the death. According to Entertainment Weekly, there are upwards of thirty actresses in contention for this role. Considering many of these buzzed about actresses, including Ronan, Moretz, Roberts, and Steinfeld, are all top contenders for the role, perhaps they should have their own televised fight to to death. They could film it and release in on DVD a week before The Hunger Games comes out on March 23, 2012. Just spitballing here. (The Playlist)

The post ‘Scream 4′ Shooting More, Hopefully Better Scenes appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Don’t pick apart that Scream 4 trailer for spoilers just yet. Wes Craven and crew have headed back to Michigan to shoot additional scenes. It was reported that the production was braving the Detroit wasteland to re-shoot material but now Craven has spoken out against that.

“They’re not reshoots. We had a couple test screenings and we saw two scenes where they had moments you could add to and we just saw a spectacular opportunity. Bob [Weinstein] just said to me basically, ‘You go to your dark side and I’ll give you the money!’ [Laughs] The two scenes were really good, but we saw how they could be spectacular, so we thought, let’s just go for it. They were key moments of the script, so we just decided to go back and go for the grand slam on them.”

I can’t help but be equal parts excited and nervous about this sequel. Mainly because Scream 3 was such a letdown. That was due to Ehren Kruger’s mishandling of Kevin Williamson‘s groundwork, and with Kruger stepping in to replace a departing Williamson on round four doesn’t give me a lot of hope. But the trailer has piqued my interest. There isn’t anything outwardly goofy in it. Except of course for that headset thing and the Culkin kid’s hair. (EW)

The post Sundance Review: Homework appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

I’m happy for Homework that it got picked up for distribution and people seem to like it. There’s nothing offensive about it, I just found it completely unmoving. Maybe it was Sundance fatigue, or maybe because I’d just seen Like Crazy which is the ultimate powerful romance.

George (Freddie Highmore) doesn’t do his homework because he thinks there are more important things to think about in life. He’s right, but failin high school won’t help him make a difference. He makes friends with Sally (Emma Roberts), a popular rich girl. It’s not about whether George can make Sally love him. He doesn’t even know if he’s in love.

There’s an inherent lack of dramatic thrust here. If George can’t even admit he’s in love, I’m not going to wait around for him to figure it out. Yes, it’s relatable and we’ve all been young before. Some of us were even as thoughtful and articulate as George and Emma, but relatable does not equal dramatic.

The characters and performances are great. George gives his highbrow explanations for skipping schoolwork to teachers and his mother (Rita Wilson). He has the confidence to stick to his guns, and the adults pretty much accept that he’s too smart to force him to tow the line.

Principal Martinson can force George to be liaison for career day visitor Dustin (Michael Angarano), a working artist who really doesn’t have much career advice. He does take George and Emma into his grown-up world. He’s got sparks for Emma too (she’s 18, don’t worry), but not in a Hollywood D-bag way. Remember George refuses to make a move.

Emma is smart enough to know what both characters need to grow into adults. That promises a more independent minded resolution to the romance, but Homework is actually as predictable as a Hollywood movie. Even George’s final assignment is pretty much what you’d imagine he’d have to do to turn things around.

Yes, Homework is the story of people trying to find their inspiration. I don’t feel like they actually do anything to get there though. George goes to Louis Malle films when he cuts school. Emma’s friend Zoe (Sasha Spielberg) takes them to a club and George doesn’t like it. Dustin pushes George to interpret modern art. Does that mean something to you? Again, the movie is just average but I wouldn’t have any reason to see it if I weren’t interviewing the cast.

An early concept.

Everyone is on Twitter these days. Celebrities, fake celebrities, movie humor sites, and even the manufacturer of the mask used in the Scream films. It’s only a matter of time before our younger cousins teach our grandparents how to tweet. But back to RJ Torbert of FunWorld, the creator of Scream‘s Ghostface. He recently leaked some information about the sequel on his Twitter page, and it looks like Neve Campbell isn’t the only one sporting a new look:

I expect there to be 2 diff masks, however I will say this, things changing very often – difficult to say without giving it away.

Sent out additional GHOSTFACE to the SET today, a very interesting opening scene.

Lets just say the town of Woodsboro, has an obsession. There is your hint.

Hmmm, okay let me guess. Obsession sounds liks Obsessed. Ali Larter starred in Obsessed and "Heroes" alongside Scream 4 star Hayden Panettiere. Hayden Panettiere was a child actor who turned out hot.

Emma Roberts On For ‘Scream 4′ Lead, Ashley Greene Out? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/emma-roberts-on-for-scream-4-lead-ashley-greene-out/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/emma-roberts-on-for-scream-4-lead-ashley-greene-out/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Watch out, Emma Roberts! A chubby, masked killer is in that photography studio with you!!Uh-oh. Looks like Scream 4 won't be that much fun to look at afterall. Somehow or another Ashley Greene won't be taking the lead. That role will instead go to Emma Roberts. EW has the penis-deflating news. **Slide whistle**:Young upstart Emma Roberts is set to join the ensemble team of Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell. And while the script from Kevin Williamson is being kept under wraps, sources tell EW.com that Roberts is expected to play Jill, one of the film’s primary heroines.Details for this project are really murky right now, so it may be possible that Greene is joining up. If so, that information is being guarded right now. All in all, I can be happy with this casting news. Sadly, it's probably the closest we'll ever come to seeing Julia Roberts chased with a knife.
