‘Miss You Already’ Trailer: Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore Are Old Friends Facing a New Test Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore star in the comedy Miss You Already, which will premiere soon at TIFF before opening in the US and UK later this fall. A film with Toni Collette in a lead role is something we’re always game to watch, and this one is particularly interesting as it is directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Plush). Here, Collette and Barrymore play friends with a strong bond who are rocked when one is diagnosed with cancer.

In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Academy Award winner Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife (Academy Award winner Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles of America's most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine.

American Ultra Review The stoner comedy has a long, if not pedigreed, history. The unsuspecting super-agent espionage film has been done before as well. So, in this day of mash-ups and remixing, why not put the two genres together? American Ultra may be the answer to that question. In fact, a mash-up of stoner comedy and unsuspecting super-agent is a perfect description of this Max Landis written, Nima Nourizadeh directed film. Jesse Eisenberg is Mike Howell, a stoner who doesn't realize that he's actually a castoff from a secret government program.

The Final Girls Trailer: Horror-Comedy Gone Meta The Final Girls is the upcoming horror-comedy film from director Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas). The unique concept focuses on Max (Taissa Farmiga of American Horror Story) whose mother was a scream queen back in the ’80s and who died before her daughter could really know her. In The Final Girls, Max’s mother’s most famous film is known as the “grandaddy of all campsite slasher films.” In the aftermath of a fire while watching the film, Max and friends find themselves pulled into the world of the movie.

Lionsgate Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) works a dead-end job, spends his off hours getting high and has panic attacks whenever he even thinks about leaving the small town of Liman, West Virginia, and the only bright spot in his suckhole of a life is his girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), whose ridiculously forgiving nature has kept her by his side despite a long list of screw-ups.

While the first film grossed over $200 million worldwide and received solid reviews, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 earned just a little over $100 million, and critics weren't thrilled with the follow-up. Jason Bateman talked about the movie's failures during an appearance on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast, and says he knows that people weren't exactly demanding for a sequel. The first one was...
