That's the premise behind the new trailer for "I Give it a Year," which begins with the usual romcom ending — Rafe Spall and Rose Byrne's characters get married — and dives into the not-so-happily-ever after they are left with.
They may be giving it a year, but they'll also be giving you a laugh. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• John Cusack is a triple threat this week! In just the past few days he's scored roles in the legal drama "Due Process," the Stephen King adaptation "Cell" (Cusack's second King adventure, following "1408") and Roger Avary's "Duel"-type thriller, "Airspace."
• Hollywood loves it when a one-night stand leads to true love (and, often, a baby ... and not always in that order). Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried and Patrick Dempsey will be playing unexpectedly expecting parents in "Wonderful Tonight," a romantic comedy that we hope gets a new title sooner rather than later (sorry, Mr. Clapton, but do you really need the extra money?).

Anna Faris may be the reigning queen of the romantic comedy, but that doesn't mean she can get downright cynical about love. Variety reports that the "What's Your Number?" actress is teaming up with "Bridesmaids" star Rose Byrne for the Working Title rom-com "I Give it a Year."
The movie, written and directed by "Borat" helmer Dan Mazer, tells the story of a pair of quirky newlyweds, played by Byrne and "Prometheus" star Rafe Spall, as they navigate their first year of wedded bliss. Get More »
Is there anything sexier than a spy? We shouldn't dig a person who lies for a living as much as we do, but we just can't help it. It's the specialized skills, the crisp wardrobes, the high IQs and the ability to blend in, adapt and fight at a moment's notice. Oh, and there's the whole master/mistress of seduction thing. No one seems to be able to show a girl (or guy!) a good time like a secret agent!
Naturally, we're jealous of Reese Witherspoon's spy-on-spy action in "This Means War." Not only is she juggling Chris Pine and Tom Hardy (when we'd be happy with just one of them), but they're both badass CIA operatives, which guarantees every date is more exciting than if either were accountants.
To console ourselves, we've put together a gallery of 15 of the CIA's sexiest spooks. We don't care if they would have to kill us afterward – we'd happily go undercover with any one of them.
Fashion Week is upon us here in New York.
Last night, the amFAR Gala at Cipriani Wall Street served as a Fashion Week kick-off as well as a fundraiser. And, as you might have guessed, there was no shortage of VIP guests in attendance.
Arrivals were a little chaotic once tourists and Wall Street suits just out of work realized what was going on, but observing was still a treat. Among the guests I witnessed arrive were host Sarah Jessica Parker, Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Elizabeth Hurley, Cheyenne Jackson, Jennifer Hudson and the legendary Woody Allen. Get More »
Having brought in an impressive haul of $100 million bucks on a $1.5 million budget, horror flick "Insidious" was by far the most profitable film of last year, which makes it no surprise that the makers are scaring up another one.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the dream (nightmare) team of James Wan (the original "Saw") and producer Oren Peli ("Paranormal Activity") are expected to return for more haunted house hijinks with a sequel that will drop in 2013. Get More »
For women, breaking into comedy is a tough enough nut to crack without the chauvinistic "women aren't funny" comments. Not only is it not true, but with a male-dominated writers' field in Hollywood (73 percent of the WGA's film writers are men) it's only too clear that if women aren't funny on-screen, it's probably because the only funny thing they had to do in the script was fall down and go boom boom.
The widely accepted paradigm in movies (not to mention TV) is having an out-of-shape or mildly attractive but funny husband and his hot, not-as-funny wife. And it's getting stale, baby. In order for a woman to go against that grain takes massive ovaries, the ability to generate her own material, and absolutely no fear of looking stupid. Get More »

Rose Byrne now knows her "Place."
The "Bridemaids" star will be getting her crime drama on as she joins the cast of "The Place Beyond the Pines," according to Vulture.
"The Place" reunites star Ryan Gosling with his "Blue Valentine" director, Derek Cianfrance, for a tale of a motorcycle-riding bank robber who crosses paths with a policeman turned politician (Bradley Cooper). Get More »
It was a celebration of the swinging '60s. Mod dancers (on boxes!), vintage cars (for the stars!) and a live jazz band that never took a break set the stage for the New York premiere of "X Men: First Class."
A-list cast members including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Lucas Till, Kevin Bacon and Zoe Kravitz pulled up to the scene in Cold-War-era rides, looking hot to trot.
And with good reason, "X Men: First Class" is certainly one of the most highly anticipated flicks this summer — and, from the looks of the scene tonight, it won't disappoint. Get More »
