Melissa McCarty Dances To Coolio In The 'Tammy' Teaser

Little else happens. Well, Coolio gets a royalty check, but that's off-camera. Tammy, a film purportedly about some sort of road trip, keeps its cards close to the vest, even in this teaser. What can we glean from this 100 seconds?
  • Tammy (if that's her REAL name) struggles with basic tasks when wearing a paper bag on her head
  • Tammy channels the fashion ethos of Mario Batali
  • Tammy likes pie
  • Tammy sticks up fast food restaurants, reluctantly
  • Tammy is the same character Melissa McCarthy has played many, many times before
  • Tammy dances like no one's watching

'Tammy' Trailer: Melissa McCarthy's Transformation Into Kevin James Is Nearly Complete

The ancient scrolls prophecy that she shall ride a Segway with the dawn of the Fourth Blood Moon. As Melissa McCarthy's transformation nears the end of its cycle, the ancient scrolls prophecy that she shall ride a Segway with the dawn of the Fourth Blood Moon. I'm not certain that Tammy involves a plot of any kind but it does give Melissa McCarthy the opportunity to run around, fall down, dance to Coolio and ride a jet ski in a silly way. They were going to title the movie that but had trouble getting it to fit on a poster.


Here's A Trailer For That New Paul Feig-Melissa McCarthy (No, The Other One) Comedy, 'Spy'

Maybe it's time McCarthy and Feig see other people? Since Bridesmaids, the Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy professional romance has gone full-steam. They've done The Heat, Tammy, they're talking about Ghostbusters, and then we've got Spy. Spy follows McCarthy's character as she goes from a wallflower to a super secret agent. "But how is Spy different?" you might ask. Well, it still has Rose Byrne, so no difference there. But fortunately, Melissa McCarthy isn't playing her go-to stock character, instead playing a sweet receptionist-type. That's different. And it's got Jason Statham and Jude Law, which none of the other movies had. It looks...okay. Paul Feig can direct a good comedy, and this might be a nice play on the genre without being over-the-top Austin Powers parody. But judge for yourself with this trailer.


Melissa McCarthy Reveals That She Was Channeling Guy Fieri In 'Bridesmaids'

It all makes so much sense. It all makes so much sense. Melissa McCarthy is enjoying some success thanks to her show-stealing turn as the oddball Megan in Bridesmaids. The character kept people laughing with tales of her connection to dolphins who saved her after a cruise ship messed up her shit and her off-kilter personal style. She told Conan last night that personal style was inspired by someone we all know. "Really, when I first read it, the first person that I thought of was Guy Fieri from the Food Network. I wanted to do the shirt, the Kangol. Every scene I would have my glasses on the back of my head. I tried for a long time to convince them to let me wear short, white, spiky hair, and they were like, 'You can't actually be Guy Fieri.' Cut it off at some point!" Now that she's pointed out the influence, it's spot-on. I'd say we should get these two in a room together, but if they were to touch it could rip the fabric of space and time. And I personally refuse to travel back to a time before Panera Bread. (via Splitsider)


Melissa McCarthy Is The New Zach Galifianakis In 'Identity Thief' Trailer

He had a good run. It's the Taking Care Of Business for a new generation! When Jason Bateman learns that his identity has been stolen by a husky woman in Florida, he does what any sensible person would do. Travels to Florida to hit the woman with his car. That's the best way to handle those situations, right? One time, a waiter accidentally gave my credit card to the wrong customer and he charged up $300 on it. I hit both he and the waiter with a car. Which really was a priceless experience if you know how to live in the moment.

Hal takes a moment from gorging himself on hot wings and s'mores (don't ask) to dissect all the big Super Bowl movie trailers -- Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Fast and the Furious 6 and World War Z -- and rate them on a scale of Very Good to Oz, The Great And Powerful.

'Snowden' Teaser Trailer Brings Everyone's Favorite Treasonous Scamp To The Big Screen

The state department has invited Edward Snowden back for the premiere party, saying it's going to be "sick." If you were going to guess who would bring us a dramatic film about the recent life of Edward Snowden, who do you think would do it? You'd guess Oliver Stone, right? You'd be correct. The politically-charged director has released a trailer for his film Snowden, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and co-starring Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Nic Cage (!), and Melissa Leo. That's a strong cast. It's a shame that we don't get to see them in this teaser. Or any film footage. But it's a start. I bet that a week before the film premieres, they'll be including classified docs in the marketing campaign to get "buzz" going. (Collider)


'I Am Number Four' Teaser

The teaser trailer for I Am Number Four has beamed down to give us a first look at DJ Caruso's first non-Shia LaBeouf film of the last few years. This bold, sci-fi retelling of "The Three Little Pigs" stars newish-comer Alex Pettyfer as an alien hiding out from his enemies in a suburba high school. You can't glean too much from this trailer apart from the fact that there's telekinesis and this high school is over-populated with really hot kids. Which is unrealistic. Take it from me, I own a quality pair of binoculars. Kids today just aren't this attractive. Or they aren't in the school zone near me anyway. Check out the teaser below.

‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Teaser Is Here! ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Teaser Is Here!

Oh, Jim Carrey is living with penguins all right! The teaser trailer for Mr. Popper's Penguins has the following things: Jim Carrey showing his age, Jim Carrey teaching penguins how to hip hop dance to "Ice Ice Baby," Junior Soprano saying, "Your house is full of penguins!" and almost nothing else. I am not familiar with the source material, the 1938 children's book Mr. Popper's Penguins, but if it happens to be one sheet of paper that says simply, "Mr. Popper lives in a house with penguins for some reason," then this movie appears 100% faithful to the source material. Uhhhh...he seems to live in a nice house? He's in a tuxedo. That's a pleasant little play on penguin imagery.... That's seriously all that can be said about this trailer.


'Skyfall' Teaser Trailer Promises A Darker Bond

He doesn't seem to enjoy his job as much as he used to. Daniel Craig's tenure as James Bond has already proven to be the antithesis of the Timothy Dalton years, but if the first teaser for Skyfall is to be trusted, it raises the stakes of "darkest Bond ever" even further. We don't glean much in the way of plot points from the video, but we get plenty of haunting drums, a la Christopher Nolan. And, yes, at the :56 mark, we see a man falling through the sky. A "Skyfall," if you will. Going on this, I would say the film looks promising, though would it kill Daniel Craig to smile a little?
