'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' Trailer Conjures A Few Laughs

Feel the magic. I've been looking forward to this trailer for awhile. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone stars Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as two Vegas magicians whose stars are fading in the light of Jim Carrey's bad boy illusionist. There's enough silliness going on here to keep me interested but many are saying the comedy looks a little too out there to be the hit Steve Carell needs. Granted, at first glance it does seem like Steve Carell is starring in a Nick Swardson movie but seeing Steve Buscemi in a silly wig is all the high-sign I need that this movie will be hilarious.

Steve Carell Says Farewell To The Fans

He's gone. He's really gone. Last night, Steve Carell raided the supply closet and left Scranton for greener pastures. Before leaving the corporate world, though, he filmed his exit interview with "Office" co-star Angela Kinsey. In the video, he talks about his favorite show moments  and what the characters and the actors who portray them have meant to him over the past seven years. He also takes a moment to say goodbye to his fans and acknowledge that he's "made an enormous mistake." It's sad to see him go but it's important we all put on a brave face and show him what big boys and girls we can be. No crying. And if any of us do, let's pretend that we got stung by a hornet. Just a really fast one that moved too fast for everyone to see because it is so fast, you see. One of those super hornets. I think it migrated up here from Mexico. (NBC)


First Look At Special Effects For 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' Is Four Seconds Of Incredible Realism

Look into his eyes. The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is so far notable for its comically long title and the involvement of James Franco, but it turns out they've got some pretty impressive special effects up their sleeves as well, thanks to the wonderful wizards at WETA. So next time you've got four seconds free, check out the video. You'll notice that around the one-second mark, the ape starts turning his head to the side. In seriousness, even though the video is ridiculously short, it's still pretty impressive. I've watched it like 68 times and the ape seems weirdly human each time. Can't wait until this shot shows up in the movie, so I can yell out "there it is!" in the theater and everyone will love me. (ComingSoon)


Steve Carell And Disney Give US The (Deep Breath) 'Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day' Trailer

It appears that lots of people are having a bad day, not just Alexander. If there's a niche Steve Carell has carved out for himself, it's playing the central character in ensemble dramedies in which everyone seems to be at their wit's end. Dan in Real Life, Crazy Stupid Love, Little Miss Sunshine (not the central character there, but still...). So it stands to reason that when Disney put Mr. Carell into the adaptation of the beloved children's book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day, many more people than Alexander would be struggling. Carell has a no good very bad day, Jennifer Garner has a no good very bad day, and some teenage actors I don't recognize have no good very bad days. While the film seems to stray from the sweetness and alienation that the kid feels, it look pleasant enough, even if there seem to be gratuitous references to texting, Photoshop, and a character says, "hashtag: blessed" in it. Welcome to the new world order.


Steve Carell Channels Lorne Michaels In Newest 'Foxcatcher' Trailer

It's all I can see. The fourth trailer for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher focuses on the emotional abuse heaped on Channing Tatum's Mark Schultz by Steve Carrell's John DuPont, as well as how Mark Ruffallo's character drives a wedge into DuPont's plans. Carrell seems chilling in this film. Like Lorne Michaels if he were allowed to hunt the Saturday Night Live cast for sport. Speaking of which, has anyone heard from Joe Piscopo lately?


New 'Megamind' Trailer Still Feels 'Incredibles'-y

Homeless Brad Pitt wants your fingernails. Another trailer for the Dreamworks animated film Megamind has dropped, and I still can't help but feel like I've seen this movie before. Will Ferrell voices a supervillian who bumps heads with the aptly-named Brad Pitt-voiced superhero, Metro Man. Dreamworks has given this yarn a different spin by focusing on the villain and his fish bowl-headed sidekick, voiced by David Cross, but my brain continues to scream The Incredibles!!! as I watch. The new trailer even reveals a plot twist that doesn't help to differentiate itself from the Pixar movie. Somewhere on the set of "Parenthood," Craig T. Nelson is shaking his head in disapproval while Bonnie Bedelia rubs his feet. Check out the trailer after the jump... Megamind -- Trailer - Watch more Movie Trailers


EXCLUSIVE: Nick Swardson Does Porn In 'Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star' Trailer

He's no Dirk Diggler. Nick Swardson is getting into porn. No, not the hardcore stuff, silly. We've got the first trailer for his new comedy Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star. Bucky (Swardson) is a small town grocery bagger, going nowhere in life – until he discovers that his conservative parents were once adult film stars! Armed with the belief that he has found his destiny, Bucky packs up and heads out to LA, hoping to follow in his parents’ footsteps. One might assume Bucky does well in porn due to larger than average valuable asset, but it's quite the opposite. It's his average-sized member that skyrockets him to the top. See, men. Size doesn't matter. In fact, too much of something can be unsettling both aesthetically and physically. Bucky Larson releases in clean and decent theaters September 9, 2011.


Have A Good Cry With The 'Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close' Trailer

Thanks a bunch, Al Qaeda. Losing a parent to the attacks on 9/11 seems like the hardest thing to deal with. As Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close illustrates, it becomes infinitely more difficult when that parent is Tom Hanks. He seems like such a fun dad and now he's gone and we all miss his voice. Al Qaeda will pay in blood. The drama looks like an interesting adventure. After losing his Tom Hanks in the attacks on the World Trade Center, a young boy is convinced that his father left a hidden message for him somewhere in New York City. He explores the five boroughs in search of a lock that fits the key his dad left behind, and moves past his complicated feelings of loss to see that there is more to the world around him. It also looks emotionally draining. He was such a fun dad.
