Melissa McCarthy is one of the most versatile and talented actors working today. Comedy, drama, action, sweet, spicy, salty, dirty, or squeaky clean, she can play anything. So with her anchoring the crime drama The Kitchen coming out this weekend, it seems like the proper time to highlight some of her best work. Let’s start […]

With the hiring of Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) to direct the planned third Ghostbusters film came the idea of making it about a whole new team of Ghostbusters and making them all female. Now they have added Katie Dippold (Parks And Recreation) to co-write the script with Feig. The two worked together before on The Heat. […]
But no, it’s still not a Bridesmads sequel.
We definitely need more guys like Paul Feig around and we need his kinds of movies to do well so we see more movies like the ones he's pitching.
Paul Feig is now The Director of Bridesmaids pretty much everywhere he goes, which is definitely preferable to Director of Grounded AKA Unaccompanied Minors, Sabrina the Teenage Witch‘s First Season Science Teacher or Dad at Car Wash from Bad Teacher. But he does have plenty of other winning aliases, from Author of Superstud: Or How […]
It was looking like Universal’s contingency plan for a Bridesmaids 2 was coming in to play now that Kristen Wiig had made it pretty clear she didn’t want to return for a do-over. The studio’s new idea was to focus the story on Melissa McCarthy‘s character. But here’s what McCarthy had to say about such […]
While Kristen Wiig and her co-writer on Bridesmaids, Annie Mummolo, are drawing up plans for new and original films – and bravo to that – the studio are looking for a sequel to their unexpected smash. The Hollywood Reporter seem to believe that Wiig may have turned down an “eight figure deal” to take part: […]
Today’s the day that Bridesmaids reaches DVD and Blu-ray in the UK. I was told that Bridesmaids was going to be hilarious, but I wasn’t forewarned that, actually, I was really going to get drawn into its story. The big surprise for me was how I came out of the screening feeling that I’d really […]
Here’s a list of the top six money makers at the American box office this Summer: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Transformers: Dark of the Moon Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides The Hangover Part 2 Fast Five Cars 2 You’ll also notice that the second-parters come relatively low on the […]
Just like I promised, here’s a Red Band trailer for Bridesmaids. Probably not safe for your work place, just fine at mine. I can keep you posted on job openings, if you’d like. Now you’ve seen it, be warned that not everything in this trailer is actually in the film.* Seeing as this is a […]
There’s an innocent one, a wild one, an… erm… dishonourable one? A getting married one? Okay, they aren’t just a set of adjectives, like Ginger, Sporty, Posh et al, but these character posters for Bridesmaids are tapping into something a touch Spice Girls-y. or Bratz-y. Or Seven Dwarfs-y. It appears to be the same trick […]
Premiered today, here’s the new, UK-edit of the trailer for Paul Feig‘s Bridesmaids, with Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and a good fistful of other funny women. For this new trailer, expect more of the same, but that’s okay when “the same” is “the funny”, plus a new look at Jon Hamm being appropriately unlikeable. Yeah, […]
I’d like to see Bridesmaids now, please, especially if it’s as funny as everybody who saw the nearly-finished version at SXSW and littered my Twitter feed with Yay and Hooray say it is. Kristen Wiig is always good value for your Fandango Bucks. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZ124pbRMJs[/youtube] This trailer was premiered on Bing Trailers. Because that’s a thing […]
