Set in a fictional reality where a rowdy fraternity is allowed to move into a residential area and Seth Rogen is able to woo and impregnate a hottie like Rose Byrne, Neighbors tells the story of a young couple battling the Greeks next door.

Zac Efron and Dave Franco play the douchey frat neighbors whose wild parties, De Niro impersonations, and sperm upset the once quiet neighborhood. All that and I’m sure they’re playing “Blurred Lines” non-stop. You just know.

‘The Muppets’ Is Getting A Sequel.

With an Oscar, critical acclaim, and a boatload of box office receipts all in its favor, it was all but a certainty that The Muppets would be getting a sequel.

Now, it’s a certainty.

Disney is in the process of locking down co-writer Nicholas Stoller and director James Bobin for a victory lap. No word on Jason Segel‘s involvement yet, but I could see a decision on including him going either way. He was a competent and likable star, and no one has the enthusiasm for Muppets like he has, but the star of the movies should always be the Muppets, and not some dude whose wiener we saw in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

No word on release date, but I would bank on Thanksgiving of “as soon as f*cking possible.”

Jason Segal And Emily Blunt Literally Fall For Each Other In ‘Five-Year Engagement’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jason-segal-and-emily-blunt-literally-fall-for-each-other-in-five-year-engagement-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jason-segal-and-emily-blunt-literally-fall-for-each-other-in-five-year-engagement-trailer/#comments Thu, 08 Dec 2011 14:00:08 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=239145 Co-starring Alison Brie.

It’s a magical feeling when you meet that special someone who is hot and British and just as accident prone as you, if not more. So, it’s no surprise that Jason Segal is eager to put a ring on it in this trailer for The Five-Year Engagement. It, in this case, is Emily Blunt who accepts his proposal but then decides to prolong the engagement when she gets an exciting job opportunity. Hilarity tries to ensue and people fall down a lot. If I didn’t see these accidents actually happening, I’d swear that this couple was in an abusive relationship.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller, The Five-Year Engagement also has an impressive 60% Must See TV supporting cast, which features Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell, and Jacki Weaver.

From Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith doing the nasty comes a brand new actress. In a world where casting directors cast different actresses to play roles, one girl said, “that’s not gonna happen anymore. I will take all the roles from now on.”

Dakota Johnson, the hot girl who didn’t realize she slept with the Napster guy in The Social Network, has been cast in three movies:

- She’s currently filming Goats, which is directed by Christopher Neil and stars David Duchovny. It’s about a teen from Tuscon who leaves home to go to an East Coast prep school. Johnson will play: some character.

- From there, Johnson will act in Five Year Engagement, which is directed by Nicholas Stoller, produced by Judd Apatow and stars Jason Segel. It’s about a newlywed couple who go through ups and downs. Johnson will play: one of the characters in the movie.

- Finally, Johnson will join the cast of 21 Jump Street, which is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller and stars Jonah Hill. It’s about young-looking cops who go undercover as teens, in a remake of the 80s TV drama. Johnson will play: a girl rock star who gets recruited by Secret NASA to fight aliens. Okay, ya got me. She’s playing some other kind of character entirely. (Variety)

History is happening here, folks. Please take a moment, open your journals, and write this information down. Trust me, you’ll want to always remember where you were when you first heard this news. Emily Blunt might appear in a good movie. Years of indentured servitude to 20th Century Fox have forced her to pass on films like Iron Man 2 in favor of Gulliver’s Travels, but now it looks like she is free and clear to team up with Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segal for their Forgetting Sarah Marshall follow-up, The Five-Year Engagement.

The story centers around a couple who are hesitant to put a ring on it. Comedy will be a departure for Blunt (Gulliver’s Travels doesn’t count) but I believe she’ll shine in this role. As a fan of Segal and Blunt, I fully approve of this. Let’s ge Paul Rudd attached and call it a day. (Vulture)

This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly features a snap shot of Muppet chaos with Jason Segel smack dab in the middle. Most the characters in the new Muppet Movie you might recognize, but one precocious little fella stands out. His name is Walter, and he’s the one holding an iPhone that tells us these ain’t your daddy’s Muppets. These Muppets can video conference!

According to the magazine, Walter is “a sweet, slightly naive twenty-something Everypuppet who, in the movie, is the best friend and roommate of Segel’s character, Gary. Both Gary and Walter are die-hard Muppet fans.” Is Segel’s character a die hard fan of only the famous Muppets, or just Muppets in general? If he’s totally stoked by all Muppets then it must be rad rooming with one. The bursting into song could get annoying, but at least you know he won’t take a rank deuce in your shared bathroom.

Check out the pics below. (ComingSoon)

Get Him to the Greek is a half-wadded spitball at the entertainment industry and all things not sacred from Judd Apatow factory of funny. The return of infamous British rock star, Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and newcomer music intern Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) must make it to the famou Greek Theater in 72 Hours or both their careers will be left in the dust. From traveling around London, New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles this odd-ball duo leave a trail of drugs, sex, and rock ‘n roll behind them. It’s when the comedy stops and things get serious that the movie creaks along its way to an ending that dearly holds onto whatever “Jeffery” vapors it has left.

With that being said, the DVD/ BluRay release gives us another unrated, post-theatrical look at this comedy, which according the filmmaker’s commentary is a push to make comedic movies into a new coined term called “Hard Comedy,” mixing the laughs with dramatic weight.

Special features breakdown after the jump…

Deleted Scenes/Extended Scenes:
A lot of these scenes are stand-alone fillers and nothing more. When watching them, you realize or at least appreciated, what the final cut of this movie looked like. A lot the jokes that worked once in the final cut like the surprise Harry Potter cameo, the various Jonah Hill sex/drug use scenes, and more puking scenes, keep coming back or go on way too long. A little scene involving Alanis Morrisette  and Aldous Snow I’m sure sounded funnier on paper than in the actual pay-off. Thankfully these scenes did not make the final cut.

Alternate Opening and Ending:
This part of the DVD shows, the boring original opening with Aldous Snow’s African Child premiere party. A lot of set up for what things are to come in the movie but seeing what they had to work with here makes you appreciate the hilarious music video intro instead. The same goes for a the ending, which is titled “Riding Daphne.” Instead of the Unplugged special at the end of the movie, we meet up with Aaron and Aldous at a forest retreat where Aldous’s new addiction is free base jumping off cliffs and writing songs about Aaron’s fiancée.

Blind Medicine with Sarah Marshall:
Since this movie is spin-off sequel of Forgetting Sarah Marshall we get additional funny little moments from the faux-NBC show, “Blind Medicine” starring Sarah Marshall (Kirsten Bell) and Rick Schroeder. The best line of “Blind Medicine”: “I wish your mind was Braille, Cole. Then I could read it.”

Feature Commentary:
What has to be the strangest commentary recorded, director Nicolas Stroll, Jonah Hill, and Rose Byrne are in studio recording the commentary, Elizabeth Moss and Russell Brand seem to be somewhere on Skype cutting in on the commentary every once in a while. We find out what the cast and director think was the best line in the movie and how Diddy never sleeps. Ever.

Music Videos:
My favorite parts of the movie were these faux-music videos of Aldous Snow and Jackie Q’s. From the opening and very un-P.C. music video of “African Child” to “I Am Jesus” and “Ring Around My Rosy.” We get to see Baby Jesus getting cradle rob, break-dancing guerrilla fighters on fire, and Katy Perry inspired spoofs about getting chili dogged and breaking feminine hymens. Here we get see these hilarious music videos again in the their true Unrated fashion of drugs, sex, and rock ‘n roll.

Gag Reel:
Every Apatow factory DVD contains a “Gag Reel,” which is just a series of  uncensored bloopers minus the cornball hosting of Dick Clark. Sometimes these little snippets are funnier than the actual movie. The best thing about this “Gag Reel” is the cast and crew freaking out about a 4.0 magnitude earthquake caught during a take.  Seeing Jonah Hill’s double blubber chin in slow motion, while screaming for his dear life is worth a good belly laugh. The rest is just about Diddy trying not to curse too much during takes.

Line-O-Rama:
Another tradition on the Apatow factory DVDs are the alternate line reads. We see a lot more from the blink or miss them performances of Aziz Ansari and Nick Kroll, which if your a fan of their improvisation-based comedy, you’ll have a smile slapped on your face. Russell Brand screams into the camera about how much Lars from Metallica is an a-hole, Jonah Hill gets mocked raped by various chicks, and Diddy can’t help but talk about the furry walls.

Behind-the-Scenes Features:
We get three behind-the-scenes features here with the Get Him to the Greek DVD:

Making of Feature: A typical HBO specials about how everyone was great to work with and how this is a spin-off of Forgetting Sara Marshall.
 
Behind-the-Music: Things get a little more interesting with the making-of music tracks. We find out about how Russell Brand had to learn to sing the word “blow-jobs” correctly. Actor/writer Jason Segel makes his only appearance on the DVD, about how he wrote several Coldplay and Katy Perry inspired songs “Goin’ Down,” “Supertight,” and “My Bangers” for the movie.

The Making of African Child: What might possibly be the worst music video ever made, the cast and crew try with as much deadpan humor explain the reasoning behind “African Child.” It tries to get a touch of Christopher Guest inspired dead-pan humor with the biggest laugh coming from the emotional burnin break dancer and assistant director feelings about working on this music video.

It's amazing the difference between a trailer that's allowed to show dildos and one that isn't. Sometimes I watch both the rated and unrated promos for a film and still think it's going to blow, but Get Him to the Greek states the perfect case for the necessity of red band. Johah Hill plays a schlubby record label intern who's assigned by big boss P. Diddy to escort rock star Aldous Snow to his comeback concert in Los Angeles.

Wackiness ensues, with a plethora of sex, drugs, rock & roll, and crusty vomit on The Today Show with Meredith Vieira.
