Trailer Park: 10 Cliches of the Bromance Movie Trailer
We watch a lot of movie trailers here at ScreenCrave, and, as we inch closer to summer with its ever-increasing torrent of new films, we're seeing more and more previews with each passing day. As we do so, we can't help but notice some similarities, repetitions, and clichés among them. Here at Trailer Park, we'll be offering a rundown of those clichés, where they come from, and which...

Weekend Box Office: Sandler and Apatow Barely Make It

Published by

Overall, this was a rather slow weekend for cinemas. We were right in our our box office predictions -- Funny People was not able to break past the dreaded $30 million mark that both Apatow and Sandler seem to be fighting these days. It did however manage to come in at number one at the box office and my guess is that it will be one of those comedies that hangs around...

This week, Judd Apatow's Funny People hits theaters, and since Harry Potter has already been knocked off the number one spot, it seems like there is no doubt that Apatow will dominate the box office.

This weekend we get Judd Apatow's new star-studded comedy Funny People with Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Eric Bana, Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, and Jason Schwartzman. The film makes fun of the people in it, as much as it makes fun of itself and is by far one of the smartest comedies in theaters right now. Check out the good, the bad, and the plot...

Judd Apatow Makes A Deal With Universal Pictures

I'm not really surprised that director Judd Apatow has signed on to an exclusive deal with Universal Pictures. All three of the films he's helmed have been under the studio's banner. He's produced for other companies, but he's only directed through them. According to Variety, Universal has made it official and Apatow has signed on to a three picture directing...

Two New Funny People TV Spots

Published by

juddapatow09-5-19
As it turns out, TV spots come in threes! So the Funny People TV spot that we posted yesterday was merely getting us started. I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad thing that all these spots are extremely similar. It's good because they don't give too much of the film away, but it also makes you wonder if they have enough to make three different spots? I'm banking...

Funny People is the latest comedy from Judd Apatow, and features Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman. Apatow recently spoke about how it was to direct...

New Funny People Trailer Shows Promise

I was a little worried about this film but after watching this trailer I think there is hope. Not because of the "I'm dying" plot line, but because they are making Eric Bana and not Adam Sandler the comic relief. I prefer serious Sandler, he's more funny. It seems like they're not trying to force humor onto us. They've given us a simple pitch, with some subtle...

Interview: Seth Rogen for "Zach and Miri Make a Porno"

To say that Seth Rogen had a very good ‘07-‘08 run would be a gross understatement. No other actor under thirty, save for Michael Cera, has crashed the spotlight so readily. Knocked Up literally put his face all over town, but then he unleashed the perverse, endearing Superbad (as brilliant as Cera’s work is, the point still goes to Rogen), and built a cache of action cred...
