Are the most memorable thing in the first trailer for Keeping Up With the Joneses. It’s an action-comedy that looks like a cross between Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Burbs with a dash of Date Night thrown in, and stars Isla Fisher, Zach Galifianakis—who I BARELY recognized—Jon Hamm, and Gadot. Full Story

As is the case so often in Hollywood, two studios are developing rival films of the same subject, but since the subject is Agatha Christie, can we all agree that this is totally okay and both movies should absolutely be made? The Hollywood Reporter reports that both Paramount and Sony are developing biopics of Christie, with Sony taking a more traditional approach to the writer’s life and Paramount focusing on Christie’s eleven-day disappearance in 1926 Full Story

Nicolas Winding Refn talks about seventeenth century Italian art, and next to him, Elle Fanning listens intently.

Yesterday would have been Tupac Shakur’s 45th birthday. To mark the occasion, the teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic All Eyez on Me was released.

Though it doesn’t reach the ecstatic highs of Pixar at their best (Inside Out, Wall-E, Toy Story 3, Up), Finding Dory is a very fun, funny, and occasionally touching movie about friendship, forgetfulness, and fish. Full Story
