The story centers on hard-partying brothers Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron), who place an online ad to find the perfect dates (Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza) for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves outsmarted and out-partied by the uncontrollable duo who join them on their adventure. This comedy is slated to hit theaters July 8, going up against the animated comedy The Secret Life of Pets.
While it doesn't have much direct competition, this animated comedy is sandwiched between a number of high-profile projects. Opening one week earlier on July 1 is The BFG, The Legend of Tarzan and The Purge 3, while Ghostbusters, La La Land and The Lake open on July 15. We'll have to wait and see how this comedy will fare amid this competition in the month of July.Read More
Is Star Wars Battlefront about to unleash the Rapture? That's the idea on display in a new live-action trailer for this highly anticipated video game. All across the world, people are disappearing, with their clothes dropping to the ground just as Obi-Wan's did when Darth Vader struck him down in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. But even though the original Star Wars theme soars on in the background, the opening of this latest sneak peek at game play is reminiscent of Rapture scenes from both the hit HBO series The Leftovers and the Nicolas Cage biblical thriller Left Behind. Luckily, there is a big star at the center of this latest Star Wars game trailer to explain it all.
Anna Kendrick then disappears as her clothes fall to a heap on the kitchen floor. But then, as though she were trapped in Tron, she reappears on Sullust to face-off against At-At Walkers along with the other rebel troops sucked into the game. She charges head first at TIE-Fighters and Snow Troopers as the action quickly moves to Hoth. We're then thrust onto the Moon planet of Endor, and eventually find ourselves on Tatooine. Coming along for the ride are Princess Leia, Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.Read More
