Last month, Lionsgate released the first trailer for their upcoming comedy Dirty Grandpa, starring Robert De Niro and Zac Efron. Today, the studio has debuted a new red band trailer, which is chocked full of R-rated language and sexual situations, which should be watched by viewers over the age of 18 only. This new footage proves that Robert De Niro's character Dick Kelly may go down as one of the most unique cinematic grandfather's in recent memory.
The story centers on Jason Kelly (Zac Efron), who is one week away from marrying his boss' manipulative daughter (Julianne Hough), which will put him on the fast track for a partnership at the law firm. However, when the straight-laced Jason is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, Dick (Robert De Niro), to Daytona for spring break, his pending nuptials are suddenly in jeopardy. Between riotous frat parties, bar fights, and an epic night of karaoke, Dick is on a quest to live his life to the fullest and bring Jason along for the ride.Read More

The Baywatch movie is one of those projects that has been kicking around Hollywood forever, looking for just the right team to tackle it head-on. That seems to be happening, with Dwayne Johnson taking the lead for Paramount. Yesterday, it was announced that Zac Efron will be The Rock's co-star in the beachside action comedy. Shortly after word hit the Internet, Dwayne Johnson sent out a few select Tweets of his own, with one big promise to moviegoers.
Yes, The Rock insists that this version of Baywatch will be Rated R, something fans have been hoping for. Some have been hesitant to share their excitement about the project, but now it sounds like Paramount might have a pretty strong franchise contender on its hands. The tone and sense of humor has been compared to 21 Jump Street and its sequel 22 Jump Street. And it sounds like CHiPs, which is being directed, written and co-stars Dax Shepard alongside Michael Pena, is taking the same route. Now that we know Baywatch will have an adult sense of humor, and won't be a PG-13 outing, things are seeming even more hopeful.Read More
Zac Efron is in talks to star alongside Dwayne Johnson in Paramount Pictures' upcoming big screen adaptation of Baywatch. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Zac Efron's casting ensures the movie will start production in early 2016, most likely in February. The news comes just a few weeks after Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) signed on to direct.
The story follows a "by-the-book and very serious lifeguard," played by Dwayne Johnson who joins forces with a "young rule-flouting hothead" (Zac Efron) to try and save their beach from environmental destruction by an oil tycoon. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) wrote the latest draft of the screenplay, which was originally written by Justin Malen. It isn't known how many other major roles are left to be cast for Baywatch, but there have been rumors that original Baywatch stars David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson may reprise their roles in cameo appearances.Read More
Just eight months after a report revealed that a sequel to last year's surprise comedy hit Neighbors may not come to fruition, Universal Pictures is moving forward with the sequel, setting a May 13, 2016 release date. Neighbors 2 will go up against Paramount's Friday the 13th reboot next May. Original Neighbors stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are all set to return for the follow-up.
The original Neighbors centered on Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne), who move into their first house together with their newborn child. Shortly thereafter, a raucous fraternity moves in next door, making their lives a living hell as this suburban couple goes to war with these hard-partying college kids, lead by Teddy (Zac Efron). Neighbors was one of the biggest comedy hits of 2014, taking in $150 million at the domestic box office and over $268 million worldwide, from just an $18 million production budget.Read More
