There is no better lifeguard team out there than that of Los Angeles' Baywatch. However, they are seriously losing money and in order to boost their brand, a PR executive encourages them to get some fresh blood on the team. Matt Brody may have landed two gold medals in the field, but that doesn't guarantee he'll be right for the squad. He's far from an impressive addition in the eyes of Mitch Buchanan; he may be prettier, but he hasn't got the brains or the brawn to match up to him. Matt thinks the job is just about educating people on sunburn and stopping them from drowning, but when it becomes clear that there's a drug ring in the area and a body subsequently washes up on the beach, their job gets a whole lot more complicated. Yeah, they should probably leave it to the police, but instead they decide on an unauthorised undercover sting operation instead. Maybe thrill-seeking Matt can teach Mitch and the team a thing or two about living life on the edge. Or maybe he'll just run like hell.

The Baywatch lifeguard team might be the best known on the planet, but in this new reality, they are really struggling with their brand. Mitch Buchanan (Dwayne Johnson) is facing cuts to his squad from the council, because they're apparently not doing enough to get themselves noticed (not even with C.J. Parker's [Kelly Rohrbach] slow-motion run). The top brass at the Baywatch Headquarters decide to try and up the popularity by employing a new member to the team; the young, super-athletic and recklessly wild Matt Brody (Zac Efron) who all the girls might like but Mitch is struggling to whip into shape. He's not exactly setting the best example for safety with his endless spontaneous stunts, and Mitch likes him even less when all he's wearing is minuscule American flag Speedos. But these guys have to find some common ground and band together when a body washes up on their beach.

Mitch Buchanan is facing a problem with his Baywatch lifeguard brand. The council are making cutbacks and the team just aren't getting themselves noticed enough. In a bid to up their popularity and spread some good press, the boss at Baywatch Headquarters brings in an athletic young man named Matt Brody who appears to have far too much confidence in himself. Meanwhile, Mitch has very little confidence in him; mainly because he's spreading a bad example with his endless stream of reckless stunts in the name of fun. Things get serious when a body is found on the beach, and Mitch want to investigate what has happened himself. However, it seems Matt sees this as a step too far and would much rather leave the matter to the police.

Making its way from PlayStation to the silver screen, the Uncharted Movie is gathering momentum
A movie adaptation of the popular video game franchise Uncharted has been in the works since 2008. Since then, three iterations of the game now exist with a highly anticipated fourth coming to the PS4. The movie, according to director Seth Gordon, will start filming in early 2015.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be, you guessed it, the fourth game in the Uncharted series
On Uncharted, Gordon told Zap2it that filming should kick off “very early next year. That's the plan,” while promoting "Marry Me" at the 2014 summer TV press tour. "That's like tomorrow, essentially,” he joked “because the prep is so complicated for the movie."

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.

For some time, it looked as though Melissa McCarthy was on track to follow the likes of Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey, to becoming one of those faultless American comic actresses that can seemingly do no wrong. We fell in love with her in Bridesmaids and she kept us entertained in 'Mike and Molly'. Her next major release, though, Identity Thief, has not gone down well with the critics and looks to be something of a doozy, with its clichéd slapstick and corny ending. We expected more from Melissa McCarthy, but Identity Thief just doesn’t deliver the goods.
Along with co-star Jason Bateman (who plays Every Jason Bateman Role Ever, Again), Melissa manages to get a decent tally of belly laughs out of the audience but it’s not enough to save Identity Thief from being just another bog-standard comedy. Diana (McCarthy) is a techno-savvy identity thief, who doesn’t bank on messing with a victim like Sandy (Bateman), who hunts her down in order to get his identity back and cling on the promotion he’d just got when he was wrongly arrested for credit card fraud.
McCarthy and Bateman get a thumbs up for their individual performances but as Magnola Dhargis writes, for New York Times, “it is entirely possible to ignore the worst parts of this movie, to drift along during the lulls, slide over the half-baked jokes and just wait for Ms. McCarthy and Mr. Bateman to do their things.” With a disappointing 23% on the Rotten Tomatoes reviews site, it looks as though director Seth Gordon has failed to make another Horrible Bosses and appears to have gone down the road of his 2008 flop, Four Christmasses. Let’s hope McCarthy’s future movie plans can do a U-turn on the damage done to her reputation, here.
Melissa McCarthy’s career has been going from strength to strength since appearing in the 2011 hit comedy Bridesmaids. Now, McCarthy and her husband and working partner Ben Falcone have a series of major projects in the pipeline with Universal and Fox. The projects will be helmed by On the Day, the production company formed by Melissa and Ben.
First up is Michelle Darnell, which has been snapped up by Universal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This particular project centers around a character created by the working couple and is set to star Melissa McCarthy, who will also be producing along with Falcone. Universal have also taken on Cousin Irv From Mars, based on the recent book by Bruce Eric Kaplan (the New Yorker cartoonist, who has also written scripts for Seinfeld and Six Feet Under). On the Day will also be taking on Fox’s adaptation of the comic self-help sex guide, Just Do It: How One Couple Turned Off the TV and Turned On Their Sex Lives for 101 Days (No Excuses!). The adaptation is taken from a book by Douglas Brown, who told the story of his and his wife’s attempts to rekindle their sex lives after 14 years of marriage.
Nick Hendricks (a management candidate), Kurt Buckman (an accountant) and Dale Arbus (a dental assistant) are three best friends who love their jobs. However, for the three of them, there is just one thing coming between them and their happiness - their evil bosses.

The movie concerns a group of bored, privileged high school students at a private school. This particular group has a love for games about lying, which they come together to play once a week. All is hunky dory in their group until their ringleader Dodger (Lindy Booth) brings in an outsider named Owen (Julian Morris), a British newbie who got kicked out of his last school for drug possession and for getting a bit too close to the headmaster's daughter. In a flash of creativity, the group cooks up one big lie for the entire school to fall into, involving the murder of a local townie. The lie is simple: A serial killer called The Wolf is terrorizing campus and will strike again when the full moon is out. Suddenly, strange messages show up, people's rooms are wrecked, and people are running for their lives away from a person dressed to fit the description of The Wolf.
