Word has it that a 4-year-old came up with the idea for this unapologetically silly action movie. And it's a proper guilty pleasure. From the director of Ice Age, it never takes itself seriously, so disarms even the grouchiest members of the audience with its energetic mayhem and characters. It's very childish, and sometimes rather too cute, but it's also a lot of fun.
In rural North Dakota, an oil drilling company has unearthed something from deep underground. And it's teenage loner Tripp (Lucas Till) who discovers a huge octopus-type creature that turns out to be friendly, intelligent and rather adorable. It immediately takes refuge in the empty engine cavity of the truck Tripp is building, and it provides more power than Tripp imagined. All of which drags Tripp's popular-girl lab partner Meredith (Jane Levy) into the adventure as the oil company boss (Rob Lowe) sends his henchman (Holt McCallany) to find and dispose of the creature before the environmental officials can shut him down. But his chief scientist Bill (Thomas Lennon) is having doubts about killing the two endearing monsters they've already captured.
Yes, it sounds like a premise a 4-year-old might come up with, mixed with an ecological message for our times and some surprisingly impressive digital effects. The script breezes through all of this, as the cast and crew blithely charge forward through a series of laughably entertaining action set-pieces. It's never terribly thrilling, but the scenes are so good-natured that they keep us smiling. Till and Levy are charming heroes, and their strong chemistry is thankfully allowed to simmer in the background. Pepper is initially the film's antagonist as Tripp's harsh sheriff stepdad, but he hands over these reins to an enjoyably evil Lowe. And Lennon provides some nice moments of comic relief as the sensitive scientist won over by these blobby beasts.

Long before meeting Peter Pan and his Lost Boys, the islands of Never Land were already the home of adventure. The lands of Pixie Hollow Tinkerbell and her fairy friends notice a bright green comet flash across the sky one night. According to deep legend, when the comet is seen, the dreaded NeverBeast will arrive in Pixie Hollow. All the fairies are terrified, and preparing to defend their home from the monster, when Fawn (Ginnifer Goodwin) stumbles across the beast accidentally. Realising that the NeverBeast is not nearly as bad as anyone thinks, Fawn must convince her friends that they shouldn't judge a book by it's cover before it's too late and they do something they'll regret.
Following their adventure in 1986, Nick (Craig Robinson) and Jacob (Clark Duke) are visiting their old friend, Lou (Rob Corddry) who has steadily become incredibly famous and wealthy for the creation of things like the internet. Someone, however, is displeased with this turn of events, and Lou is shot during a party and comes close to dying. Nick and Jacob realise that the only way to save him, is to take him back in time to before he was shot, and shot it from ever happening. They pile back into the hot tub time machine once again, getting stupidly drunk along the way, and are suddenly blasted through time. But when they wake up, they find out that they have not gone back in time as they first though, and have instead travelled ten years into the future.

David isn't your classic drug dealer type - he sells pot here and there for the personal use of his buyers, but he certainly tries not to get involved with the more serious and deadly aspects of it. But when his large stash is stolen, he is forced to pay back a big-time dealer by venturing to Mexico to smuggle a 'small' shipment of marijuana across the border. However, he soon begins to release that it's not going to be at all easy to get across the border without being searched and so he hatches a plan to rope together a fake family called 'the Millers' to help him appear like an average tourist. He gets a young, slightly over-friendly teen friend of his to act as his son and pays an aggressive gutter punk to be his daughter, and his stripper friend to be his wife. However, things still don't go as smoothly as they'd like when their camper van breaks down, his 'son' is hospitalised after an allergic reaction to a spider bite and they are caught with the drugs by ruthless Mexican mobsters.
This brilliant comedy has been 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. 'We're The Millers' will hit UK cinemas everywhere on August 23rd 2013.
The trailer for new horror comedy 'Hell Baby' has dropped giving us a glimpse of exorcisms, bad language, and fearsome foetuses.
Hell Baby is about to implant itself within US cinemas with a comedy horror experience that follows the story of Vanessa , played by Leslie Bibb (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Iron Man 2) and her husband Jack, played by Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, Blades of Glory) as they move into a dilapidated New Orleans house with dreams of fixing it up, but the expectant couple miss the warning signs of 'Maison de Sang' (House of Blood), and know little of the house's dark history. Soon Vanessa begins acting in a disturbing, almost possessed way, requiring the intervention of two Vatican exorcists to find out what's really growing inside the housewife's body.
Something Strange Is About To Emerge From Leslie Bibb...
Hell Baby writer-directors Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are known for their work on Reno 911! and Night at the Museum and Hell Baby will be the pair's directorial debut together. The trailer promises a lewd, crude affair, with plenty of lampooning of classic paranormal horror clichés, such as scenes from the notorious The Exorcist. The film is low-budget and low-brow, with the trailer only giving a flavour of the boobs, f-bombs and over-the-top gore that is to come.
Vanessa and Jack are a loved up couple expecting their first child, with dreams of fixing up a dilapidated old house in New Orleans neighbourhood. Little do they know of the house's history and just why it hasn't been inhabited for so many years, but they are about to find it. A visit from their rather unconstructive new neighbour F'Resnel tells them that the building is nicknamed Maison de Sang - in English, House of Blood. Strange things begin to happen to the couple, with Vanessa displaying some extremely odd and disturbing behaviour leaving Jack with no choice but to call upon her psychiatrist and her sister Marjorie to help him find out what appears to be possessing her. Meanwhile, two exorcists from the Vatican are called to the house to do their own research into the demonic presence.

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.
