Amy Schumer Is A 'Trainwreck' In Judd Apatow's Latest Film: VIDEO


Judd Apatow has a new film in the works starring Amy Schumer called Trainwreck, which is perhaps the most appropriate title they could have possibly decided upon. Schumer is a snarky, commitment-averse woman - pulled from Schumer's real-life experiences - who spends the film trying to overcome her own personal baggage and self-sabotage.

It looks cute and giggle-worthy, but you can watch both the general audiences and red band trailer - which has some bonus man-butt - and decide for yourself AFTER THE JUMP...


Trainwreck starring Amy Schumer, Tilda Swinton, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Ezra Miller, Dainel Radcliffe, and Vanessa Bayer arrives in theaters July 17.

'50 Shades of Grey' Sees Record Sales...In The Conservative South: VIDEO

Say what you will about Jaime Dornan's upcoming 50 Shades of Grey, but the erotically-charged film is already proving itself to be a box office powerhouse. According to Fandango Grey has accounted for nearly 60 percent of its ticket sales this week, and has become its fastest selling R-rated film to date. Though the film doesn’t hit U.S. theaters until Thursday, tickets for opening day shows are selling out at record speed in a number of southern states that all have something in common.

Mississippi, Arkansas, and West Virginia saw the sharpest uptick of pre-release ticket sales followed closely by Kentucky, Alabama, Louisiana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Tennessee. It’s interesting to point out that the bulk of that list, save for Iowa and West Virginia, includes many of the remaining holdout states that have yet to legalize gay marriage. That being said, it isn’t exactly surprising considering some of the insight we have about the personal tastes of people hailing from the most conservative states.

Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters this Thursday evening. Check out a trailer for the film AFTER THE JUMP...

Spider-Man Is Joining Marvel's Cinematic Universe

In a surprise move made public late last night while nearly no one was paying attention, Marvel Studios announced a multi-project partnership with fellow film studio Sony to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper.

"We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy (Pascal), who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man," said Sony Chairman and CEO Michael Lynton. "This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans."

Rumors and speculation as to whether Marvel would ever recapture some of its more high profile property rights have existed ever since the studio first made clear its intentions of betting squarely on comic book films in the long term.

Marvel, which currently controls the rights to the Avengers including Captain America, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, and the Black Panther found massive success in building up an interconnected universe in which heroes from individual movies could interact with one another. The move came years after a once struggling Marvel sold off its rights to other famous franchises like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, which are currently owned by Fox.

Word of potential talks between Marvel and Sony surfaced most recently last winter as a result of Sony’s massive data breach that, amongst other things, led to The Interview’s rushed release. As a part of its deal with Sony, Marvel will release yet another reboot of the Spider-Man mythos, this time grounded in the same world as the Ant-Man and Captain America films.

Considering the current state of Sony’s most recent Spider-flick starring Andrew Garfield, it’s unlikely that the actor will reprise his role as Peter Parker in the new Marvel production. Upon word of the news many fans took to social media, clamoring at the potential for the next Spider-Man film to forego Peter Parker entirely. Many expressed their hope that would opt instead to focus on Miles Morales, a younger, Afro-latino web-slinger from Marvel’s Ultimate Universe.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is scheduled to make an appearance in an upcoming Marvel film before starring in a Sony-produced, but Marvel guided feature in 2017. Further details are few and far between for now, but one this is for certain: this is big.

A short film called Tonight It’s Me, part of the short film collection Boys on Film 12: Confession, features a gay hustler, CJ, who spends the night with a trans woman, Ash, and in the process the two unveil hidden, but common secrets about each other. Big Gay Picture Show reviewed the film and praised the concept behind it.

Said BGPS:

"It’s an oddly sweet, well-made film that looks at disconnected souls coming together and finding common ground, even if their experience of life is very different. It’s well worth watching, making you consider the different marks that our encounters with other people leave on us."

An IndieGoGo campaign for the film’s sequel, Tonight It’s Me: Part II, recently concluded with the campaign reaching its goal of $3,000. The sequel debuts April 1, exclusively on YouTube.

If you haven’t already, you can watch the compelling, and beautifully shot, full short of Tonight It’s Me: Part I, AFTER THE JUMP…(warning: NSFW)

Zachary Quinto Fills in Andy Cohen About His Threesome with James Franco and Charlie Carver: VIDEO


On Watch What Happens Live!, Andy Cohen tried to dig deep into the threesome (see below) between Zachary Quinto, James Franco, and Charlie Carver in the new film I Am Michael, which, according to Carver, was shot in a hot, stuffy Long Island attic over the summer.

Cohen grilled Quinto on whether there was a lot of tongue, if it seemed like something James Franco had done before, who got the most aroused, and whether there boners or cock-socks.

The Trailer for the 'Poltergeist' Remake Is Heeeeeere!: VIDEO


Sam Raimi's remake of the classic horror film Poltergeist is well on its way to terrifying absolutely everyone this summer, and what's sure to ramp up the horror-meter to maximum pants-soiling is the fact that the film appears to largely be favoring practical effects over special effects. Sadly, Zelda Rubenstein is no longer with us, but the creepy clown makes an appearance, so as long as Raimi avoids the mistakes that plague sequels and remakes, Macy's can look forward to record underwear and jeans sales this July.

You can decide how many new pairs you'll need to stock up on by watching the trailer AFTER THE JUMP...
