Those of you who caught it at Sundance earlier this year know it as "Toy's House," but now the newly-titled "The Kings of Summer" is ready to break free from the snowy boundaries of Park City to begin its reign as the indie film choice of the Summer 2013 movie season.
This unique and heartfelt coming-of-age comedy chronicles the rugged adventures of three teenage friends — Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and Biaggio (Moises Arias) — who run away from home to spend the summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. The three young leads are certainly poised for superstardom, though the occasional scene is stolen by the grown-ups that make up the supporting cast, including "Parks and Recreation" co-stars, American treasures and real-life couple Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally.
Check out the exclusive TV spot for the film above, and bow down to "The Kings of Summer" when it hits theaters on May 31. And don't forget the pasta and canned goods.
Ever since the refreshingly oddball first teaser for the breakout Sundance hit "The Kings of Summer" arrived last month, we've been curious to see more. After all, that clip consisted entirely of three teens dancing in the woods to the beat of their own drummer. So what might happen if, you know, there were plot and stuff added?
Anything that Nick Offerman has done or will ever do is funny in some fashion. Pretty much everyone agrees with this, including, apparently, Nick Offerman.
As if specifically putting that theory to the test, the promo for Offerman's latest film, "Somebody Up There Likes Me," first presented by our fraternal twins at Cinemablend, is bizarre on a level that makes a David Lynch movie seem like the gag reel of Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups" by comparison.
Graced with more celebrities per capita than your everyday disaster relief telethon, the promo starts with Offerman's "Parks & Recreation" co-star Adam Scott confronting Offerman in his wood shop about not showing up to the P&R set for work that day.
Things get decidedly NSFW from there. Get More »
It's hard not to love Alison Brie. While keeping us perpetually entertained at home on "Community" and "Mad Man" and still squeezing in a few cool movies here and there (including "Save the Date," currently available On Demand and in theaters on Dec. 14), she also manages to get our hearts all aflutter with her sexy adorability.
Well, hold on tight, because she's about to up the awesome to 11. In an interview for Nylon Guys, she confesses that she can't quite do the Dougie like Kate Upton, but she can rock a mean Charleston. And, yes, she shows us what she means. Watch, starting around the 1:35 mark, and love.
Please "Save the Date."

With the likes of Anna Kendrick and Felicity Jones vying to be the love interest of Steve Rogers in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," it's given new meaning to "America's Got Talent."
Now a whole bevy of beauties want to be contestants on "Who Wants to Marry a 100-Year-Old?," with Deadline reporting that Jessica Brown Findlay ("Downton Abbey"), Teresa Palmer ("Warm Bodies"), Imogen Poots ("Knight Of Cups"), Alison Brie ("The Five Year Engagement‘s"), and nudity-prone "Game of Thrones" star Emelia Clarke are all in contention for the female lead.
Apparently Cap is going to have to use his shield to deflect hot ladies more than bullets, especially since the article also says that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will be doing some sexy avenging in the Marvel Studios sequel as well.
This will probably end up being your favorite teaser trailer — at least, you know, for this week.
"Somebody Up There Likes Me" chronicles thirty-five years in the life of Max (Keith Poulson), his best friend Sal (Nick Offerman) and a woman they both adore, Lyla (Jess Weixler), through a series of seemingly unfulfilling entanglements at weddings, funerals, hospitals, eateries, divorce courts and the tool shed.

When April began, I knew that there was no chance it could top March's "The Hunger Games" rush. It's usually a quiet month anyway, and the biggest event here in New York that would be worth making a big fuss over was the Tribeca Film Festival.
But, with "The Avengers" closing the festival, I was thrilled. Perhaps my prediction would be off.
Alas, my search for superheroes wasn't as fruitful as I'd like. Try as I might, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Loki and more just weren't sharing their super-stardom with me.
Thankfully, the beginning of the month was a bit more productive when I met "21 Jump Street" star Dave Franco and "The Five-Year Engagement" actress Alison Brie at a concert. I even got the chance to talk to Alison about how great "Five-Year" was only to find out she hadn't even seen it yet! Get More »
Judd Apatow, Hollywood's godfather of raunchy and sophisticated humor, is responsible for producing last year's breakout comedy "Bridesmaids." So it's no surprise that this year's best bet to succeed the wedding-centered laughfest is "The Five-Year Engagement," yet another marriage-minded, Apatow-produced movie.
Written by Jason Segel and his screenwriting partner Nicholas Stoller, who also directed, "The Five-Year Engagement" follows Tom (Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt), a San Francisco couple whose engagement is postponed again and again when Violet is offered a postdoctorate fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
The plot might sound like dozens of stereotypical rom-coms, but here are five reasons "The Five-Year Engagement" could be this year's "Bridesmaids." Get More »
Is it a coincidence that NBC Universal's goofy and charming new rom-com "The Five-Year Engagement" is studded with actors from its Thursday-night lineup? Even "30 Rock" boss Jack Donaghy couldn't come up with a better plan.
Emily Blunt and Jason Segel are the stars, of course, as you can see from the ads featuring their enormous(ly lovely) faces on billboards, buses, and bus stops everywhere. Over the course of the movie's 124 minutes, viewers soon find themselves treated to appearances by some of the funniest young actors on the scene. Get More »
