'Piranha 3DD' posters and tentative release date revealed

It’s been almost two years since Piranha 3D (a remake of the 1978 B-movie, Piranha) was released in theaters, and the wait for the sequel is nothing if not excruciating. P3D truly had something for everyone: a classic love story, a comically coked up character, buckets of blood, adult actresses, and some crazy prehistoric monster fish shooting out of the screen thanks to the magic of 3D. Still, the question remains: when will the Piranha 3DD (hehe) be released in US theaters?

'Jeff Who Lives at Home' trailer - Jason Segal attempts to soil my good name

You know, I’ve had a pretty good run with the name Jeff. Yeah, my initials JVC are the same as the major electronics company, but it could have been worse; I could have been named Michael Bolton. Still, it irks me to see the Duplass brothers try to ruin the good thing I have going. Their new film Jeff Who Lives at Home portrays we Jeffs as the type who live at home with our parents until we’re well into our 30s. It’s not true, I tell you! If I wasn’t pretty sure this would be a good movie, I might be offended.

'Hangover' stars to get $15 million a piece to make part III

It looks like The Hangover III could be getting the go ahead soon, with the three main stars set to sign on for a substantial pay increase, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis are each asking for $15 million (against backend) to sign on for the second sequel and it looks as though Warner is ready to pay. The studio is short of all-but-guaranteed hits, having already kissed goodbye to one major franchise following the final installment of Harry Potter and with Christopher Nolan’s Batman series coming to an end this summer.

'Mirror, Mirror' trailer - It makes 'Snow White and The Huntsman' look like 'Citizen Kane'

There are two Snow White films hitting theaters soon, for some reason. Last week, we checked out the first trailer for Snow White & The Huntsman, which takes a moody, Twilight approach to the classic tale, and now we have the first trailer for Mirror, Mirror, which is directed by Tarsem Singh, who was responsible for The Fall, an intriguing movie that blends dream and reality, and more recently, the disappointing Immortals. It was written by three people, none of whom seem terribly experienced at writing good films.

'Tower Heist' review - Wow, Eddie Murphy is funny again

How the hell do you get Steve McQueen’s red Farrari out of the top of Trump Tower? That’s the conundrum facing Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in Tower Heist. Their solution doesn’t make much sense, but it’s as practical as movies like these get. No one moment of Brett Ratner’s new comedy heist will blow you away, but it’s a surprisingly consistent and funny movie. And hey, it’s the first time Eddie Murphy has been funny outside a Shrek movie in more than a decade. Now that’s worth celebrating.

Talk To Me (2007) review - Don Cheadle can work a mic

Talk To Me is based on the life of radio personality Ralph Waldo “Petey” Greene. It’s a classic rise and fall story that managed to keep me engrossed throughout the film. It’s filled with heartfelt moments and the funniest monologues I’ve heard in my life.

Horrible Bosses review - The Hangover meets middle management

Have you ever wanted to kill your boss? We've all thought, abstractly, about how great it would be if we were Mister Manager for a day or, at least, what it might be like if our supervisor wasn't such a bag of douche. How great would that be? Unfortunately, for most of us, it ain't gonna happen. The world of middle management is full of imbeciles, psychopaths, and jackasses (and a few really great people). Some bosses are completely lazy and do nothing at all, while others rule the office with their own unique brand of tyranny. The management in Horrible Bosses is as bad as it gets. Unfortunately for Nick Hendricks, Dale Arbus, and Kurt Buckman, it's a lot harder to kill your boss than you'd think.
