    Megan Fox Says She Won't Come Between Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann In Judd Apatow's Next Film

    Exclusive: More so than any of his previous films, Judd Apatow's next movie is being kept firmly under wraps. We know that it's a spin-off to "Knocked Up," focusing on Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann's characters from that film, we know that Rudd's character now runs a record label, we know it's being referred to in some circles as "This is Forty," although that's not the official title, and we know that Apatow has assembled a typically salivating supporting cast, with Albert Brooks, John Lithgow, Chris O'Dowd, Lena Dunham, Melissa McCarthy, Annie Mumulo, Ryan Lee, Wyatt Russell, Robert Smigel, and a few returning alumni of the 2007 comedy, includ...

    Ava Sambora Cameos In Judd Apatow's Next Film; Paul Rudd Not Sure Which Characters Will Make The Cut

    In the internet age, it's pretty difficult to anything under lock and key for too long, but Judd Apatow has thus far done a pretty damn good job at keeping the details of his "Knocked Up" spinoff under wraps. What we do know is that it's not a direct sequel exactly, but rather, it picks up with Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) five years after the events of the first film, thought that's about it. Well, shooting is underway and another name has joined the film. Variety reveals that the 13-year old Ava Sambora -- yes, the daughter of rocker Richie Sambora -- will cameo in the film as the best friend of Maude Apatow, who reprises her...

    Watch: Paul Rudd Presents 'Our Idiot Brother: The Hangover, Borat'

    There is probably no better (or controversial) marketer or movie hustler in the business than Harvey Weinstein. The man is capable of spinning almost anything into buzz about his movies (see last year's NC-17 rating of "Blue Valentine" which he promptly turned into a rallying point around the film), and putting Harvey into the awards season with a project to shill is like putting together peanut butter and chocolate. It's a no-brainer. And while movies that come out during the rest of the year may not get the full Harvey Weinstein treatment, if they can turn a modest profit and live a long life on DVD and digital, the honcho is more than happ...

    Paul Rudd Is A Smiley Moron In First Poster For 'Our Idiot Brother'

Miller, Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn in a co...

    Watch: Paul Rudd As A Lovable Stoner In 'Our Idiot Brother' Trailer

    If you weren't one of the lucky few who made it out to Park City a few months ago, this past week has been a good time to get a taste of what you missed. Trailers have been arriving for Sundance hits like the Brit Marling starring sci-fi drama "Another Earth," Ben Stiller produced British comedy "Submarine," and the John C. Reilly-starring coming-of-age indie "Terri." Plus The Beastie Boys even released their short film "Fight For Your Right: Revisited" in it's entirety, which had it's debut in January during the festival. The latest trailer to hit the web is for "Our Idiot Brother" (formerly "My Idiot Brother") which got picked up by the Wei...
