It's rare to find a movie that so defiantly refuses to be put into a genre box. Is this a drama? A black comedy? A pointed exploration of alcoholism? A buddy adventure? A giant monster movie? The answer is that it's all of these things, often at the same time. And this offbeat tone makes it seriously riveting, anchored by wonderfully unshowy performances by Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis.
It opens in Manhattan, as Gloria (Hathaway) returns from yet another drunken night out. And her boyfriend (Dan Stevens) has finally had enough. He throws her out, so she returns to her childhood hometown, where she runs into old classmate Oscar (Sudeikis), another drunk who now owns the local bar and offers her a job there working with Garth and Joel (Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Stowell). Then she starts noticing that her inebriated behaviour seems to be controlling a huge monster that's currently attacking Seoul, Korea. And when she gets Oscar, Garth and Joel to help her test this theory, things really begin to get strange.

From Saturday Night Live to comedies like Horrible Bosses and We're the Millers, Jason Sudeikis has made a career as part of an ensemble.
Now he's playing the leading role in The Angry Birds Movie, an animated adventure based on the phone-app game. But he found the job a bit lonely, recording his character's lines in a sound studio in Manhattan. "The one thing that you miss, and the biggest difference, is the interaction," Sudeikis says. "The chemistry that comes across on-screen is actually created by the people that did the sound mixing and the animation. They make the real magic happen by making it appear as if we're all in the same place at the same time. And for me, who spends most of my time working in ensembles, I miss that. But you get to have that on the other side when you meet up and travel around selling the film!"
Sudeikis admits that he didn't know much about Angry Birds before he got the role ("I've spent more time being in the game than playing the game"), but he loved the script by Jon Vitti, a veteran comedy writer who has worked on everything from The Simpsons to The Office. And he found his character Red a challenge. "He's the definition of angry," he laughs. "Red is a contrarian. He's a little frustrated. He's definitely the black sheep. He reminds me of Jack Nicholson from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest!"

Josh Gad, UNDP Climate Change Advisor Cassie Flynn, Producer Catherine Winder, Producer John Cohen , Jason Sudeikis - The cast of Columbia Pictures and Rovio Animation's ANGRY BIRDS, Josh Gad, UNDP Climate Change Advisor Cassie Flynn, Jason Sudeikis, Producer Catherine Winder, Producer John Cohen, UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications/Outreach and Red take a selfie in the General Assembly Hall at the United Nations for International Day of Happiness. Red, the starring animated character voiced by US star Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming "The Angry Birds Movie," was named Honorary Ambassador for Green on the International Day of Happiness today at the United Nations. The appointment of Red is part of the #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet campaign to help the world body promote the International Day of Happiness, which is observed on March 20 each year, and encourage people to take action against climate change and its impacts. The International Day of Happiness recognizes that Gross Domestic Product alone cannot measure the wealth and well-being of a country's population and a more inclusive, equitable, balanced and sustainable approach to growth and development is key to being happy. After United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon named Red as Honorary Ambassador for Green, the campaign was presented to hundreds of young people in the iconic General Assembly Hall of the United Nations. The presentation included the movie's US stars Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Maya Rudolph as well as producers John Cohen and Catherine Winder, who asked the attendees for their support to make the Angry Birds happy by doing their part to take action against climate change. They presented the "Help Red Go Green" materials including public service announcements created to support the campaign. By participating in the #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet campaign, individuals can make the Angry Birds happy and "Help Red Go Green" by posting photos and messages to show how they are protecting our planet by recycling, taking public transportation and conserving water, for example.

Race follows the life of athlete Jesse Owens and more specifically his athletic career as he embarked on his journey to the 1936 Olympics. Jesse was fast on the track, he constantly beat his competition and when he began training with Ohio State University coach Larry Snyder, he was pinned to be the best of the best. One of the major problems that faced him was that the 1932 games were set to take place in Germany which was ruled by the Nazis.
Being a black athlete, Jesse often faced discrimination and when he finally gained a place on the Olympic field team, Jesse was put under pressure by some of the community to send a message to the Nazi regime and equally a message of support to show solidarity with the oppressed people of Germany.
Jesse had to find a way to fulfil his dream and represent himself, what he stands for and to also win a medal for the people of USA who are counting on him to 'beat those Nazis' who viewed African Americans as inferior beings.

Some sequels just aren't meant to be.
Every year we get a few new examples of sequels no-one asked for; follow-ups to movies that weren't particularly memorable to begin with but for whatever reason made enough cash to spawn a second instalment in the feeble hope that a franchise might be in the making.
The current example is 'Horrible Bosses 2', the continuing adventures of three morons (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) who spectacularly failed to take care of their boss problems the first time around. The prime selling point for the original film was Jennifer Aniston talking dirty, so of course that role has been beefed up considerably this time. But critics have slammed the sequel for being even more vacuous than its predecessor.
'Angry Birds' movie is getting underway in the coming months, and is set for release in July 2016.
The upcoming Angry Birds movie looks to have a strong ‘Saturday Night Live’ connection as a number of stars set to provide voiceovers were revealed.
Sudeikis has landed the lead voice role in the upcoming movie adaptation of 'Angry Birds'
'SNL'’s Jason Sudeikis will receive top billing by voicing Red, the instantly recognisable face of the Angry Birds brand. Former co-stars of his will play supporting roles, including Bill Hader as a pig and Maya Rudolph as Matilda. ‘Game of Thrones’s Peter Dinklage will play the Mighty Eagle, which some will see as ticklingly appropriate, while Josh Gad will voice Chuck and Danny McBride will feature as the exploding bomb.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are now the proud parents of a baby boy!
Babies, babies everywhere! The latest addition to the Hollywood brood is little Otis, the newborn son of powerhouse couple Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. The 30-year-old reportedly gave birth on Sunday. A twitter announcement followed not long after. She posted a black and white snapshot of herself, snuggling with the tiny newborn.
Congratulations to the new parents!

SNL funnyman Seth Meyers has gotten married to his long-time partner Alexi Ashe in an intimate ceremony on Sunday, 1 September
Seth Meyers has married his long-term girlfriend, human rights lawyer Alexi Ashe, in an intimate ceremony this weekend. The couple exchanged vows in front of a select number of family and friends at the small venue in Martha's Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts. Congratulations to the both of them!
Seth & Alexi exchanged vows on Sunday, 1 September
The Saturday Night Live writer and oft-star Meyers proposed to his girlfriend a little over a month ago and with seemingly no time to spare the two married promptly in a secret ceremony that was littered with famous faces. US Weekly were the first to report the celebrity wedding, noting that the couple held a rehearsal dinner outside at the Beetlebung Farm House the night before the big day.

London holds a pair of starry premieres, Disney stages a major conference for fans in California, and new trailers arrive for Steve Coogan, Judi Dench, Mark Wahlberg, Saoirse Ronan and Joaquin Phoenix...
We're the Millers had a huge premiere in London this week, and stars Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis and Will Poulter were all over town promoting the film before walking the blue carpet in Leicester Square. It opened in the US last week, and hits Britain next week. Here's a video of Jennifer Aniston leaving Los Angeles for the London premiere. Here we have pictures of Jennifer Aniston braving rainy London for 'We're The Millers' Premiere.
Also in London, Rachel McAdams attended the world premiere of her new movie About Time, about a guy who travels back in time to find himself a girlfriend. She was accompanied by costars Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson, plus filmmaker Richard Curtis, at Somerset House, where the premiere screening was held outdoors. The film opens next month. Click here for pictures from the premiere and the trailer for Richard Curtis' rom-com 'About Time'.
'Horrible Bosses' star Jason Sudeikis was among the cast who arrived for the New York premiere of crime comedy 'We're The Millers' held at the Ziegfeld Theater. He was joined by his fiancé 'Tron' star Olivia Wilde, his co-star Will Poulter, Sami Gayle from 'Blue Bloods' and New York Knicks basketball player Iman Shumpert.
Watch carefully to see if you can notice anything unusual going on in Mumford & Sons' new music video.
The video begins just like any other Mumford & Sons vid; nothing to suspect here. Rays of sunlight obscure the banjo twanging members as they play in the middle of a country field. There's out of focus striding through long grass and slow motion walking up a dirt track with their folk instruments. There's no reason to believe the band on video could be any other performers than the British folksters themselves.
The Group Let Themselves Be Parodied.
That is, until the sun-streaked dust clears and our suspicions are aroused. Is that really Marcus Mumford? Isn't Ted Dwane's beard looking a bit raggier than usual? Wait a minute - that worn, rustic, wooden instrument isn't really being played. They're fakes!
Is Jason Sudeikis about to follow in the footsteps of Tina Fey, Chevy Chase and Mike Myers?
Jason Sudeikis, the most high profile member of the Saturday Night Live cast, has announced he will not be returning to the show in the fall. Sudeikis is following comedians Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Andy Samberg, Seth Meyers and Kristen Wiig out of the long-running show, leaving NBC bosses with a dilemma on their hands as they seek to keep the show relevant, popular and most of all funny for its 39th season.
Sudeikis, who has worked on the show for 10 years, announced the news during a taping of the Late Show with David Letterman,
"Yeah, I'm going to leave. Yeah, I'm not coming back next fall." he told the veteran host, to a bewildered audience. Letterman had apparently not heard of the departure and began asking the actor questions about life working on the show, with the 37-year-old dropping the bombshell shortly after.

"I'm definitely done": SNL's Jason Sudeikis has said he won't be returning to Saturday Night Live in Autumn in another cast-loss blow to the NBC show.
US actor Jason Sudeikis has revealed on the Late Show With David Letterman that the most recent season of entertainment show Saturday Night Live was his last, adding to Bill Hader and Fred Armisen's announcements that they too were leaving and Kristen Wiig's 2012 exit. The cast is set to dwindle further in 2014 when Seth Meyers leaves to take overhosting duties from Jimmy Fallon on Late Night after the Winter Olympics next year.
Not The Face Of SNL Any More.
After being asked how long it's possible for someone to last on a show, Sudeikis replied "A person can go as long as they want. Lorne [Michaels, SNL producer] has been kicking butt at it for 33 of the 38 years. But me, yeah, no I'm definitely done. I'm going to leave, I'm not coming back next fall, no." The actor/comedian spent eight years as a performer on the show and two years as a writer; his exit confirmation comes after 10 seasons at SNL. According to USA Today, Sudeikis had originally planned to make his exit in 2012 but was convinced by Michaels to stay so he could play Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the presidential election season.

Jason Sudeikis will presumably concentrate on movie roles now.
Jason Sudeikis, the most high profile member of the Saturday Night Live cast, has confirmed he is leaving the show and will not feature on the new series.
The veteran announced the news on Wednesday's The Late Show With David Letterman, saying he's "definitely done" after 10 years on the late-night NBC comedy staple.
"I'm definitely done," he told Letterman. "I'm not coming back next fall." The actor is currently starring in the comedy flick 'We're the Millers' with Jennifer Aniston and is engaged to his former co-star on The O.C, Olivia Wilde.

The Cannes Festival winds down this weekend with Steven Soderbergh, Alexander Payne and the Coen Brothers all pleasing the critics.
The big global release this week is The Hangover Part III, and the cast has been jetting around the world for premieres in Los Angeles and London, where fans screamed at actors Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong as they paraded up the red carpet. The critical response hasn't been quite as positive.
The 66th Cannes Film Festival winds down this weekend in France. Critics are praising new films by Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon), Alexander Payne (Nebraska with Bruce Dern) and the Coen Brothers (Inside Llewyn Davis with break-out actor Oscar Isaac). They weren't so thrilled by Ryan Gosling's reunion with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn for Only God Forgives, although they praised costar Kristin Scott Thomas for going far against type.
Jennifer Aniston strips down as, err, a stripper in 'We're The Millers!'
Jennifer Aniston plays a stripper in her new comedy We're The Millers, with Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and Ed Helms. The internet virtually exploded on Thursday (June 23, 2013) when the first official trailer for the movie rolled out online, showing Aniston, 44, as a scantily clad stripper tasked with helping Jason's character David pull off an elaborate drug smuggle.
Jennifer Aniston had previously told her pal Chelsea Handler that she wore three bras in order to prevent herself from putting too much on the show for the role, though fans still get an eyeful in the new trailer! In the movie, Sudeikis puts together a fake family to drive an RV across to Mexico and retrieve drugs for Ed Helms' villainous character. Hilarity ensues after they meet a sexually experimental couple along the way!
As well as Jennifer Aniston stripping down, it's worth pointing out that We're The Miller might actually looks pretty funny. During one standout scene in the trailer, David realises how much marijuana he actually has to haul back to the U.S before telling Helms, "This is not a smidge, you got me moving enough weed to kill Willie Nelson man!". Also, watch out for Sudeikis' 'son' delivering a word-perfect rendition of TLC's 'Waterfalls'
Watch the 'We're The Millers' Trailer!

Although this adventure's premise will appeal to children, and the child within us, the film itself is far too simplistic to be a classic. But at least the animation looks terrific, with swooping action and an inventive use of nature imagery. The result is relatively engaging, consistently entertaining and never remotely suspenseful.
The story begins as teen Mary Katherine, better known as MK (voiced by Seyfried), returns home to live with her mad-inventor dad (Sudeikis) after her mother dies. Dad's house is on the edge of the forest, where he is obsessed with discovering a miniature world of beings who keep the natural world running. But his focus on work has alienated everyone in his life, and MK is still struggling to break through to him. Then she has a freak encounter with the tiny Queen Tara (Knowles), who shrinks her to two inches tall. Suddenly she's working with the Queen's chief leafman Ronin (Farrell), a rogue soldier Nod (Hutcherson), and a goofy slug and snail duo (Ansari and O'Dowd) to save the forest from the evil Mandrake (Waltz).
The script eliminates all complexity in its depiction of good and evil. Mandrake is bent on destroying the forest for no real reason, trying to bring his creeping grey decay to what is otherwise an idyllic, magical world drenched in colourful flowers, verdant ferns and trickling brooks. In other words, it's so obvious who is going to win this battle that we never for a moment worry about our rag-tag group of heroes, no matter what violence they face. So we sit back and enjoy the animators' work. While the humans look like plastic dolls, the bugs, birds, plants and critters are simply astounding, and some of the action scenes are genuinely exhilarating.

The actress divulged some of her workout secrets and her policy on nudity.
Those, expecting Jennifer Aniston’s stripper role in We’re the Millers to come with a hefty amount of nudity, are in for a pretty big disappointment. Not only is the trailer completely PG, so is the film itself. In fact, in a recent guest appearance on Chelsea Lately, Aniston told host Chelsea Handler that she wore three bras during the stripper scenes, just to be on the safe side.
No nudity for Jennifer - the actress is keeping it PG.
Nevertheless, Jen’s outfits in the film are obviously pretty revealing, and the actress recently shared with Extra that she had to take some extra fitness measures to prepare for shooting. For Aniston that means one thing: yoga. The actress divulged to Extra the secret to her toned body – doubling up the amount of yoga she normally does with her instructor and friend, Mandy Inger.
Aniston and Sudeikis make for an excellent fake family.
Jennifer Aniston hasn’t been doing too well in terms of movies lately, with her latest film, Wanderlust, grossing just $17.5 million domestically, but at least the woman is keeping fit, as the trailer for We’re the Millers clearly shows. In the film, Aniston plays a stripper and so it’s only natural that she’d show a bit (or a lot) of skin in the trailer. Everything is kept strictly PG, of course, but it’s enough to make most women out there wonder what it is that Aniston is doing to look that good.
Anniston leaves behind her clean-cut image for this one.
As for those not enthralled with the prospect of a nude Jennifer, or with the plot of the film itself, you might be interested to know that Jason Sudeikis co-stars with her in Millers. The actor recently appeared in his final episode of Saturday Night Live – as a full-time castmember, at least - but he’s obviously not short of career opportunities after leaving that show.
'We're The Millers' also appears to be pretty funny, which is useful for a comedy.
Remember when the trailer for Horrible Bosses rolled out online? Yeah, the internet buckled under the weight of users frantically searching out Jennifer Aniston in her underwear. Well, the same thing's gonna happen with the first trailer for We're The Millers - Aniston's new movie with Jason Sudeikis and Ed Helms.
Sudeikis plays David, a guy earning a living by dealing a little pot here and there. However, when his marijuana his stolen, he is left having to pay a drugs boss (played by a rather miscast Helms) by embarking on a trip to Mexico to bring his latest shipment in. A young kid tells David that he'll probably get searched at the border by travelling alone, and so he devises a plan to form a fake family and enlists a local stripper (Aniston) to play his wife. The smugglers head off to Mexico in a traditional looking camper van, meeting a sexually experimental couple in the meantime. Oh, and there's Jennifer Aniston dancing around in her underwear. Yeah, there's that.
David isn't what you'd call a drug lord but he does earn a living by dealing pot here and there. However, when all his marijuana gets stolen, he is left having to pay a big-time drug criminal by embarking on a trip to Mexico to bring in his latest small shipment. A young teen who lives in his block informs him that he's most likely going to get searched at the border and, not accustomed to smuggling more than a pocketful, his efforts will be futile. Thus he decides to enlist his stripper neighbour to pretend to be his wife, the teen to be his son and an even younger gutter punk to be his daughter as he concocts a plan to pretend to be a normal family that will hopefully get overlooked as humble holidaymakers. However, things don't go as smoothly as they'd hoped as they wind up breaking down in their camper van, meeting a sexually experimental couple and getting busted by gun toting Mexican gangsters.
'We're The Millers' is the hilarious new comedy directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ('Dodgeball', 'The Mysteries of Pittsburgh') and written by Bob Fisher, Steve Faber ('Wedding Crashers'), Sean Anders, John Morris ('She's Out of My League') and Dan Fybel in his feature film debut. It is set to be released in the UK on August 23rd 2013.

Oscar-winning director Ben Affleck had his fifth turn hosting.
Last night’s season finale of Saturday Night Live was filled with nostalgia, as Ben Affleck returned to host for the fifth time, while cast members Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader bowed out with their final SNL show.
It was an unusual hosting turn for Affleck, who gave his opening monologue with wife Jennifer Garner by his side and devoted the moment to an apology to her (of sorts). Affleck raised a couple of eyebrows with his Oscar acceptance speech earlier this month, when he mentioned that his marriage to the actress was “work”. In front of the SNL cameras, however, he was all remorse, saying: “I couldn’t do any of the things I do without you” and so on and so forth, until Garner jokingly noted that he was, in fact, just reading from the cue cards. Oh well, it was a noble try anyway.
But the night definitely belonged to Hader, Armisen and Sudeikis, all of whom went out on a high note with their final sketch performing with Armisen's Brit punk character and singing "It's a Lovely Day." Carrie Brownstein, who works with Fred Armisen on the sketch comedy series Portlandia also joined in the festivities, as did the Sex Pistols' Steve Jones, singer Aimee Mann and others. This time the promos weren't deceiving. One thing is for sure: the SNL team definitely knows how to put on a finale.
As SNL says goodbye to Bill Hader, the actor's future might be clearer than that of the show.
Let’s shed a collective tear for Bill Hader leaving SNL. Not for Hader himself of course, as we all know that talented comedians who had their start on the sketch show usually do quite well for themselves. And Emmy-nominated Hader certainly doesn’t seem to be slowing down. No, what will be missed are Hader’s characters, starting with the overly caffeinated “Weekend Update” city correspondent, Stefon. Yes, Hader is probably moving on to bigger and better things, but who will tell us what New York’s hottest club is now?
“It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point,” Mr. Hader said in an interview. “It got to a point where I said, ‘Maybe it’s just time to go.’ ”
Hader, 34, has had an impressive run on SNL. After joining as a featured performer in 2005, he was soon promoted to a full-time castmember and went on to create some memorable impersonations of people like James Carville, Al Pacino, Vincent Price and Julian Assange. The actor isn’t the only one leaving SNL of late though. This large-scale departure of talent, including writer/castmember Seth Meyeres (who is leaving to replace Jimmy Fallon on The Late Show) as well as possibly Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis, could pose a problem for the show.
Continue reading: Saturday Night Live Is Cast Member Short After Bill Hader's Departure
A collection of random shorts that focus mainly on idiotic male behaviour, this portmanteau comedy is only occasionally amusing, never making anything of its astonishing cast. Frankly, we spend most of the time wondering how the filmmakers lured these A-listers to appear in these pointless, nasty little films. And while the premises have potential, not a single one has a decent punchline.
As a prank, two teens make up a banned online film called Movie 43. While their brainly little brother searches for it, he runs across a series of clips that mainly focus on awkward vulgarity between the sexes. Bitter exes (Culkin and Stone) have a rude exchange that's broadcast on a supermarket sound system. Pratt is shocked when his girlfriend (Faris) asks him to "poop" on her, and agrees because he loves her. Parents (Watts and Schreiber) homeschool their teen son (White) with the goal of showing him how excruciating life will be. Two pals (Scott and Knoxville) kidnap a leprechaun (Butler) who's reluctant to give them his gold. And a 1950s basketball coach (Howard) tries to convince his players that they're winners because they're black.
Others are dating scenarios: Winslet goes on a blind date with a guy (Jackman) who has testicles on his neck; Berry and Merchant play an increasingly deranged game of Truth or Dare in a Mexican restaurant; a pre-teen (Bennett) can't cope when his young date (Moretz) has her first period; Batman (Sudeikis) messes up Robin's (Long) attempt at speed-dating; Banks struggles to cope with her new boyfriend's (Duhamel) obsessive cartoon cat. There are also a few random advert spoofs, including one for the naked-woman shaped iBabe, which leads to trouble for the company CEO (Gere).

If you haven’t had enough of Jennifer Lawrence yet (don’t even try to deny it, we’re just as obsessed as you), this will be good news to you – fresh off her Golden Globe victory, complete with a little bit of controversy, the Silver Linings Playbook actress will be hosting SNL tonight!
That’s right, we’ll all be able to watch Lawrence, arguably the year’s most touted actress, in all of her slightly awkward, foot-in-mouth glory (in a good way). The evening will also feature The Lumineers as the traditional musical guest. The promo for the show features Jennifer and Jason Sudeikis, parodying a couple of the actress’s big hits this year. Along with Jennifer being “awarded” the hosting spot and subsequently being played off before finishing her acceptance speech, the promo also features Jason Sudeikis in Bradley Cooper’s now infamous garbage bag getup from Silver Linings ("Trying to drop some of this winter weight .. B. Coop-style!"), and, of course, a reference to The Hunger Games, which sees Lawrence shooting a bow and arrow – straight into Bobby Moynihan. It’s funny, if not the most clever sketch and, in our humble opinion, it should certainly prompt you to watch SNL tonight. Watch the promo for the show below.
For most people the hope is that you marry once and it lasts forever, however that is less and less likely, and even more so in the upper echelons of 'celebrity'. However, second marriages are often the one that sticks.
The engagement between House's Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis from Saturday Night Live was revealed in People magazine over the weekend. It will be the second marriage for both of them, so a US Weekly source said "they've both been married, so they've already experienced that and know what it entails. [Jason] finally found the one that made him want to commit," the source adds. "They've both been through it before and this has just felt right from the get-go. Everyone is happy for them."
Speaking to USA Today she revealed how excited she is about being a Mom one day: "Yes, yes, absolutely. I think it would be great." She said, "My mom was a great example of having a professional life and having a kid. It can be done. No one is saying it's easy. But I'm totally inspired by the idea of being a badass working professional mom.. I'm so into my dog. I can't imagine how I will smother my child."

Well, they kept this one quiet. Or maybe Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis chose to announce their engagement just before the Golden Globes to keep things on the down low? The Change-Up actress confirmed the news over the weekend, tweeting on Sunday, "Thanks for all the sweet congratulatory love, friends! And may I compliment your savvy use of that nifty engagement ring emoticon."
A source told US Weekly magazine that funny-man Sudeikis, 37, popped the questions shortly after the festive holidays. "He finally found the one that made him want to commit.They've both been through it before and this has just felt right from the get go. Everyone is happy for them." It will be the second wedding for both stars: Jason was previously married to the Pitch Perfect screenwriter Kay Cannon for six years, while Olivia was married to documentarian Tao Ruspoli for eight years before splitting in 2011. During a Glamour magazine event in October, Wilde opened up about the end of her marriage, saying, "I felt like my vagina died. Turned off. Lights out . . . you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina." She later boasted that she and Sudeikis "have sex like Kenyan marathon runners."
The actress is currently shooting Paul Haggis' romantic-drama The Third Person, about three interlocking love stories involving three couples in Rome, Paris and New York. The movie also stars James Franco, Liam Neeson and Mila Kunis.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of a great career in Hollywood must be in want of a wife, especially if said wife is a powerhouse actress in her own right, and Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are once again confirming the rule.
Sudekis proposed to the House actress shortly after the holidays, according to a report in People magazine and how could she say “no”? The pair have been dating since November 2011 and moved in together last year. Not being able to get any privacy doesn’t seem to have affected their relationship too much and despite being very public with their displays of affection, Wilde (28) has said previously that she has fallen “blissfully, hopelessly, wildly in love”. Seems only logical then, that she would jump at the chance to take her relationship with the 37-year-old Sudeikis to the next level. The couple has been spotted jet-setting around the world and most recently in Rome, where Wilde is had at work, filming her upcoming dramatic flick The Third Person.
No wedding date has been announced yet, but if the pair plan on tying the knot this year, they will have some pretty packed schedules to balance, with Olivia’s next film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone being released in March and Rush, directed by Ron Howard in September. Meanwhile, Sudeikis also has a couple of films in the pipes this year, including the animated film Epic in May and We're the Millers, costarring Jennifer Aniston, which hits theaters in August. Add a wedding to that and it looks like a packed, if exciting year is in store for the couple.
An insider has told New York Daily News, though, that their relationship may not be all that it seems right now and suggests that those marriage rumors might well be a little hasty. According to the source, Sudeikis was thinking of popping the question to Wilde, but just lately, things have been strained between the pair, meaning that sound of wedding bells has gotten a little muffled of late.
Fans of the couple needn’t despair too much, though, it doesn’t sound as if the relationship is completely beyond repair. “They’re still talking,” the source reassured reporters and added “it’s a rocky road… but contact between them has not been cut.” Apparently, things went belly up for the couple around Thanksgiving Weekend, when Jason found text messages on Olivia’s phone that he didn’t take too kindly to. We’re not sure of the content of the messages but presumably it wasn’t just Olivia wishing her family a happy thanksgiving…
If you were hoping for a romantic comedy with a harmless storyline, romance and inoffensive jokes, the here's a warning: read no further. 'Movie 43' is one of the most cringe-worthy and uncensored taboo-filled flicks to be released in the history of comedy. Here you will see several interlinked stories with characters' lives surrounding unusual proposals, interrupting blind kids' parties, bad parenting, teenage menstruation, a confused and slightly racist basketball coach, innovative business ideas and the kidnapping of a violent leprechaun. Once you see this movie it is unlikely you will find a subject that offends you ever again.
With twelve different comedy genius directors including Peter Farrelly ('Dumb & Dumber', 'There's Something About Mary', 'Shallow Hal'), Steve Carr ('Daddy Day Care', 'Dr Dolittle 2'), Steven Brill ('Little Nicky') and Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour') to name but a few and eight different writers, this jaw-droppingly crude and often obscene movie features a diverse star-studded cast, both British and American, who have banded together to shock you in the most hilarious ways you can think of. Whatever kind of comedy you're into, 'Movie 43' probably has something in it for everyone and it is set to hit the big screen on February 1st 2012.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are officially a full-blown item after getting a place together, and a pretty swanky one at that. The 28-year-old actress opened up to USA Today about the downtown New York City apartment she shares with 'Horrible Bosses' star Sudeikis.
"I've been decorating our new apartment. That's a lot of what I do," she said. "I'm so domestic. We have a cool new electronic drum kit. It's a good life." Oh, we bet it's a good life. Wilde has now established herself as one of the most sought after leading ladies in Hollywood, whereas Sudeikis is raking in the megabucks, as always. Wilde says she and her new beau - who she's been dating since last year - spend nights "nerding out" and discussing working on a projects together. Wilde explained, "We talk about it all the time.We're constantly doing bits together. One day someone will turn a camera on that. It would be a good movie." Would it really? Perhaps.
To be fair, a collaborative project with Sudeikis is likely to be years away, given Wilde is currently working on no less than ten projects, including 'Drinking Buddies', a comedy starring Anna Kendrick and 'Rush', Ron Howard's highly anticipated biography of Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda.
Will Ferrell's funniest movie in years, this is a silly comedy with a terrible sentimental streak, but the political satire running through it is dead on. In fact, the film's opening act is razor-sharp as it lampoons election campaigning with knowing jabs at corporate sponsorship, incumbent laziness and the difficulty of being an honest candidate. So it's disappointing when the film becomes soppy and stupid.
Ferrell creates a memorable comical character in Cam Brady, a five-term North Carolina congressman up for re-election. He's sure he will coast his way back into office, and is only mildly worried when naive local goofball Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) runs against him. Marty certainly isn't ready for the slick attacks orchestrated by Cam's campaign manager (Sudeikis). But two wealthy brothers (the underused Lithgow and Aykroyd) are bankrolling Marty's campaign in the hopes of turning the district into a Chinese sweatshop, so they hire a ruthless press officer (McDermott) to whip Marty into shape. And the game is on.
Even though the characters are cartoonish, what they do is eerily authentic. Cam is a smooth operator with strong hair and a womanising streak. He also believes he can do whatever he wants as long as he mentions "America, Jesus and freedom" in every speech. By contrast, Marty is camp and silly, with a plump wife (Baker) and kids, plus a pair of pet pugs that Cam instantly labels as "Communist Chinese dogs!" Their clashes are a riot of parody and slapstick, some of which is sharply pointed (neither says anything substantial) and some is just ridiculous (including a hilarious cameo from Uggy, the dog from The Artist).

Mary Katherine is a regular teenage girl who somehow mysteriously appears in an enchantingly beautiful forest full of talking slugs and miniature soldiers. In this strange new world, a war is waging between the forces of good and those who do everything within their power to try to defend nature, and the forces of evil; those who are responsible for its destruction. Wishing she'd dreamt it all at first, Mary eventually joins a team of weird but friendly characters to help protect this world as well as her own which is also, consequentially, under threat.

They bring in a second candidate to rival Brady and allow them to gain control over North Carolina. Their candidate, Marty Huggins, though less charismatic than Brady but equally as much of an intellectual vacuum, is the na<ve local Tourism Center director who, with the help of his new supporters and a ruthless campaign manager, quickly becomes a genuine competitor incurring many more of Brady's public indiscretions.
