Bridesmaids

Tammy Teaser: Melissa McCarthy is having a bad day!

Here is the first teaser and poster for Melissa McCarthy’s next “Tammy” directed by Ben Falcone, who is also her husband (he  played the Air Marshall in Bridesmaids), and co-starring  Susan Sarandon, Dan Aykroyd, Allison Janney, Kathy Bates, Toni Collette.

We don’t get to see much of the plot in the teaser so here is a brief synopsis “After losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, a woman (Melissa McCarthy) hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother (Susan Sarandon).”

 

 

I haven’t been able to keep up to date with all her releases after BridesMaids but I do find Melissa McCarthy hilarious on the big screen (Mike and Molly was less my cup of tea).

The teaser also has a bit of Sarah Barker who was excellent in Go On, another more than decent Matthew Perry TV show cancelled too soon (guys can’t seem to catch a break).

So quite looking forward to Tammy!

TAMMY is released in UK cinemas on July 4th 2014

Girl Most Likely Trailer and Poster

You’d expect that after the massive success of Bridesmaids, we would be seeing a lot more of Kristen Wiig on screen, unfortunately that’s not been the case.

Even Girl Most Likely which was previously called Imogene and premiered last year at Toronto International Film Festival is only getting a release date now.

From the press release:

Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening, Darren Criss and Matt Dillon headline in Girl Most Likely, a hilarious comedy about Imogene, once a promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence. Heavily in denial about being dumped by her high society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate meltdown as an appeal for his sympathy. But her attempt backfires when she’s put into the custody of Zelda, her estranged gambling addict mother (Annette Bening), and must return home with her to the Jersey shore. Desperate to get back to her Manhattan circle of so-called friends, Imogene must finally deal with her family, including her unique brother (Christopher Fitzgerald), Zelda’s new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Darren Criss),who together help Imogene find her place in the world.

 

GIRL MOST LIKELY is released in UK cinemas on September 27th

The Heat Trailer

Trying to repeat the success of the last time she played an FBI agent in Miss Congeniality, America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock is teaming up with Mellissa McCarthy for what might be the studio driven odd couple cop comedy since Kevin Smith’s Cop Out.

But having just had a quick look at the trailer, there might still be some potential especially as Paul Feig is directing after the massively successful Bridesmaids which really put McCarthy on the map (That sit com she does about overweight people seems to be liked by some audiences but I’m too lazy to and ambivalent towards it to even try google searching it’s name) but the appearance of Thomas F. Wilson is what got me excited! Most people might know him best as Biff Tannen, who played Marty McFly’s nemeses in the Back To The Future series and who also weirdly had as a gym teacher in Freaks and Geeks, the vastly underrated show that Feig worked on with Judd Apatow.

I got to say I’ve liked Bullock since Speed even though I havent seen any of her recent work, can anyone not like her? And Melissa is on a roll and has a slew of movies coming out, add to that Feig and the supporting cast, this might rise about the sum of it’s parts.

Here’s the trailer, let us know what you think in the comment section below!

 

Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) couldn’t be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.

Directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), written by Kate Dippold, (Parks and Recreation) produced by Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Jenno Topping

 

 

THE HEAT is released into cinemas April 5th 2013

I Give it A Year New Clips and Poster

Only last night we were having a discussion about Damages the court room drama which just finished it’s final season in the US and after the promise of the first season, it couldnt really live up to it’s potential. As with any claim I make, I usually get challenged and proven wrong but the one take away was that everyone loves Rose Byrne and can watch her do anything.

Especially since she has been tapping into her comedic skills since Get Him To the Greek (she stole that movie) and the much more straight role in the hilarious Bridesmaids.

Although I Give it A Year has all the trappings of a paint by numbers Rom Com, the cast and the people involved sure are making me excited to watch it!

Here are some new clips and press summary from the movie:

I Give It A Year is the hilarious new comedy from Working Title Films, the producers of Love Actually and Bridget Jones’s Diary, and the writer of Borat.

Starting where other romantic comedies finish, I GIVE IT A YEAR lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage, and stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Rafe Spall (One Day), Anna Faris (The Dictator) and Simon Baker (The Mentalist).

Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat’s a doer..but the spark between them is undeniable.

Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives.

With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?

I Give it a Year is released in cinemas on 8th February 2013.

Melissa McCarthy(Bridesmaids) And Joel McHale (Community) Train For The Emmys!

The Emmy nominations are about to be announced this thursday and to create some viral buzz here is a hilarious video of last year’s Emmy host, Joel Mchale, loved by Upodcast for his role in one of our favorite shows Community and Melissa Mcarthy, who almost stole the show from Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids, “training” for this years awards show which I assume Melissa will be presenting after her succes in Bridesmaids.

Tune in for Episode 30 of our Podcast (Posting this week but if you subscribe to Upodcast in iTunes there is no chance you’ll miss it!) to hear our review of Bridesmaids but Melissa does keep surpising us with her abilitiy throwing herself headfirst into any comedic possibilites especially as we only knew her as Sookie from Gilmore Girls before this. (Yes we confortable enough in our masculinity to admit to having seen episodes of Gilmore Girls)

Since we all love trainging montages (with freeze frame ending and all), and both of these performers are wonderful, we thought we coudl post this clip even if have no interest in the Emmy’s whatsoever.(Unless Community wins, then YAY!)

Check out the clip below!

 

Let us know what your thoughts and if you are tuning into the Emmy’s this year in the comment section .
