Johnny Depp has to be in on the joke, right? I mean, even if he’s given to playing these flamboyant, seemingly timeless characters, every once in a while he’s gotta come back to reality in a film about a regular dude in an office who’s trying to raise an adopted kid or something, right?

Maybe, but that film is definitely not Mordecai, which sees Depp as an art dealer/thief trying to get his hands on a painting that may contain the code to a bank account filled with Nazi gold.

Ok. They had me at “Nazi gold.” If that sounds interesting, the supporting cast of Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany, Oliver Platt, Aubrey Plaza, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn may endear you even more to the film.

20th Century Fox sent over an exclusive red-band trailer of Ed Zwick’s Love & Other Drugs starring Jack Gyllenhaal and Anna Hathaway. We can finally see that this film has some edge to it, and a ton of synonyms for the word “penis.” Gyllenhaal plays a charming Viagra salesman who engages in a casual relationship with Hathaway after seeing her boobs under false pretenses. But love gets in the way, as it always does. Damn feelings. We praise evolution for giving Man a conscience, but it’s the main reason we can’t screw like monkeys. Well most of us who have to get up in the morning for work, anyway.

The X-Men: First Class casting news keeps on comin' today. Rose Byrne just joined the cast as Moira MacTaggert, and now Oliver Platt is set to play a non-mutant character mysteriously named The Man in Black. Hopefully his skill isn't blending into the background. Platt isn't exactly Crispin Glover thin. The film, which begins shooting in London next month, has an impressive group of stars attached, including James McAvoy as Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Alice Eve as Emma Frost, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Lucas Till as Havoc, and Edi Gathegi as Darwin. And let us not forget Kevin Bacon, who will be terrorizing them all with his fancy footwork and/or something else. (Deadline)

Deeeeeeeerp!

Jack Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway star in Love & Other Drugs, a romantic comedy that isn’t afraid to rom-com it up in every aspect possible. Gyllenhaal plays a charming Viagra salesman who tricks a free-spirited Hathaway into taking her shirt off. After she beats him with a suitcase, they go get a cup of coffee, and the rest is history.

The cheeseball lines, the music, the sappy on-screen text, the emotionally distant male protagonist whose resolve is broken by the emotionally distant female protagonist — it’s got it all. Why couldn’t their casual arrangement of sex with no strings attached just have remained casual?! Because love got in the way, Silly. Ed Zwick, who has been taking on period pieces such as The Last Samurai and Defiance as of late, directed the film, which I suppose could still be considered a period piece, meaning you have to be able to have one in order to think it looks good.

Love & Other Drugs hits theaters November 24th.

Check out the trailer after the jump…
