    WRONG Trailer and Poster | Collider

    Fans of Quentin Dupieux’s film Rubber look to be in for another dose of weirdness if this new trailer and poster for his next film Wrong are any indication. While Rubber dealt with a homicidal tire with telekinetic powers, Wrong tones it down just a bit and focuses on Dolph (Jack Plotnick), a man who wakes up one morning (at 7:60) and realizes that Paul, his dog/soul-mate, has gone missing. What follows is sure to be a strange adventure as Dolph encounters some rather odd individuals on his quest to find Paul. Also starring Eric Judor, Alexis Dziena, Steve Little and William Fichtner, Wrong will be available on VOD starting February 1st, with a theatrical release on March 29th. You can also check out the previously released teaser trailer and Matt Goldberg’s review of the film here. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and see the poster.

    Here’s the new trailer for Wrong, followed by the synopsis and poster:


    Here’s the synopsis for Wrong:

    Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) awakens one morning to find he has lost the sole love of his life—his dog, Paul. Desperate to reunite with his best friend and to set things right, Dolph embarks on a journey which spirals into the realm of the absurd. On his quest, he drastically alters the lives of several severely bizarro characters, including a promiscuous pizza delivery girl (Alexis Dziena), a mentally unstable, jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, an eccentric pet detective (Steve Little) and most mysterious of all, an enigmatic pony-tailed guru, Master Chang (William Fichtner) who imparts his teachings to Dolph on how to metaphysically reconnect with his pet. From fearless cinematic surrealist Quentin Dupieux, the director behind the head-exploding Rubber, Wrong is a wholly original and hilariously hallucinatory universe all its own.

    Take A Break From Your Expectations With The Trailer For SPRING BREAKERS!! - Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    The second it was announced that Harmony Korine was putting together a Spring Break movie starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, with a corn-rowed, gold-toothed James Franco in the mix, I really didn't know what to expect. Was this just some borderline depiction of jailbait in bikinis with train wreck written all over it? Because, by taking a look at the new trailer (via MTV News), we're about to head into some very dark territory with a few faces we've come to know only as wholesome.
    this has been shopped as a comedy...but with Harmony Korine behind the camera I think most of the laughs will be out of uncomfortable dark situations.

    The idea of those teeny-boppers in a Harmony Korine movie makes me curious as hell. There is some serious, ****ed up potential here and I MUST see it.

    WRONG COPS Trailer. WRONG COPS Stars Marilyn Manson, Eric Wareheim, and Ray Wise | Collider

    After seeing Rubber and Wrong, I’m not sure if writer-director Quentin Dupieux has any depth to his ridiculously bizarre films, but they’re entertaining nonetheless (especially Wrong). His next film, Wrong Cops, looks equally strange, but it has an unconventional filmmaking process as well. Dupieux is shooting the multi-chapter film as financing comes in, and releasing what he has so far at festivals. He debuted 14 minutes of the movie at Cannes last spring, and he’ll be premiering the first 45 minutes at Sundance. The film stars Marilyn Manson, Eric Wareheim, Mark Burnham, Ray Wise, Steve Little, Jon LaJoie, and Grace Zariskie. I’m curious how Dupieux pulls together his cast and crew to repeatedly come back to work once more financing has come in.

    As for the film itself, watch the trailer and you’ll see why it’s tough to describe the movie beyond “Cops behaving badly (as if the title didn’t already clue you in).” The trailer says the finished film should be ready by this summer.
    Hit the link for the trailer...non embeddenable.

    Sundance 2013 Review: Hell Baby | CraveOnline

    So Hell Baby is not, exactly, this year’s Sex, Lies, and Videotape. It is, however, a small triumph of independence. Co-stars Lennon and Garant are famous screenwriters who worked on numerous studio-driven products like Night at the Museum and Herbie: Fully Loaded. They even wrote a book on how to work within the studio system and make a living as a screenwriter, as opposed to most books, which focus on how to write a well-structured script in an industry vacuum. They are used to working with ridiculous studio notes and producing aggressively mainstream product. Hell Baby, although it’s certainly a commercial piece of broad entertainment, is the first film they have actually produced on their own terms, writing and directing it together. It would be an exaggeration to say that it’s the next Blazing Saddles or anything, but it’s fair to call it a genuinely hilarious farce.

    It’s sad, in fact, that a film as directly comedic as Hell Baby feels so refreshing in the current motion picture environment. Broad comedies nowadays mostly seem to belong to the generally inept “spoof” category, or brainless family fare (some of which, in all fairness, Hell Baby’s filmmakers are at least partially responsible for themselves), and movies starring Adam Sandler. Hell Baby doesn’t quite fit in any of those genres. It’s a horror comedy, with the comedy outweighing the horror by at least 20%, and although the plot is reminiscent of films like Rosemary’s Baby and The Shining, the humor doesn’t rely on references to other – and almost universally better – movies to fill time. Cut out the jokes, make the lighting spookier, and it’s a real horror film (although not a particularly amazing one). Insert jokes, and the somewhat serious horror tropes increase audience involvement a bit when things get wacky
    Cool.

    Review: 'Movie 43' Strains For Laughs With Uninspired Collection Of Comedy Shorts | The Playlist

    “Movie 43” isn’t a total failure, in that fans of lowbrow gross-out comedy will have plenty of options during the film’s runtime, the magic of an anthology picture being that you must only wait a little while until a particularly joyless segment will end. But as far as getting a taste of the voices of American comedy, it falls way short. The only entry to capture a particularly idiosyncratic voice is the final installment from former Troma hand James Gunn, who reveals that, despite the mainstream recognition that’s about to come from directing Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” his mind remains affectionately deranged. Gunn’s short combines the tacky plastic sweetness of a sitcom about a pushy cat interrupting the love affair between a normal couple (Josh Duhamel, Elizabeth Banks) with the extreme bad taste of his earlier work, taking the idea of a particularly perverted feline to its likely conclusion, and then even farther. Gunn’s short, inexplicably banished to the middle of the end credits, is the only sketch here with an actual ending, reflecting, for once, an actual comedic vision, however diseased. Sadly, it plays at the moment where it’s likely that most audience-goers will have had their fill of the arbitrary chaos of “Movie 43,” an oddity recommended for only the most fervent, undemanding comedy junkies. [C]
    I take reviews of comedies from this site with a grain of salt, but no one on rotten tomatoes has liked it yet, either.

    IDENTITY THIEF Review. IDENTITY THIEF Stars Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy | Collider

    The most remarkable thing about Identity Thief is how a movie this dumb could keep insulting its audience’s intelligence. Aside from being a comedy with no laughs, screenwriter Craig Mazin rests almost his entire plot on coincidences, and one-dimensional characters. The comic talents of stars Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy are absolutely wasted on a limp road movie that gets lazier and more tiresome with every passing moment. The best joke the film can conjure is a punch to the throat, which would almost be preferable to sitting through this chore of a picture.
    Actually feel bad for Bateman on this one. Great interview on Howard Stern the other day, but really...this looks like a tire fire.

    A "cinematic shart", I read the other day.

    Bateman needs to learn how to turn down roles occasionally.
