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

The Way, Way Back Trailer

Coming of age stories are a dime a dozen, and especially coming from the team that brought you “Little Miss Sunshine”, you might have a good idea what the story beats might be.

But the directing duo Jim Rash and Nat Foxon collaboration was picked up at the Sundance Festival bringing together quite an eclectic cast, following up their oscar winning The Descendants (check out our Upodcast Review here) with Steve Carrell  playing a bit of a doucebag and Sam Rockwell who is supposed to be Pool Side Yoda.

From the Press Release:

THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncan’s (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin).  Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen (Sam Rockwell), the carefree manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up and begins to finally find his place in the world – all during a summer that will change his life.

 

The Way, Way Back, is out in UK cinemas on Wednesday 28th August
