Before making three films in positioned squarely in the stoner comedy genre, director David Gordon Green specialized in small, idiosyncratic movies like "George Washington" and "All the Real Girls."
His latest film, "Prince Avalanche," which stars Emile Hirsch and Paul Rudd, is Green's attempt to strip away the excess of his last three theatrical efforts and get back to the basics of what he likes to do.
The first trailer for "Prince Avalanche" gives you a sense of the humor at work in the Sundance hit and makes us incredibly excited for the film's release on August 9.

"A Delicate Truth," the new book from "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" author John le Carré, hit shelves today in the UK and got one hell of a film-quality book trailer to celebrate the occasion.

"A Delicate Truth" hits U.S. bookstores on May 7.

If you're familiar with the work of Michael Shannon at all, you know him as an actor who can go very, very dark when he needs to. The same cannot be said for Chris Evans, who's best known for donning the red, white, and blue for Captain America.
But if you have seen "The Iceman," the new true-life story of the country's most notorious hit man, you know a much different version of Evans.
In this exclusive clip from the upcoming movie, Shannon and Evans discuss different ways of killing targets and disposing of bodies. Evans, who plays the partner of Shannon's Richard Kuklinski, suggests using a powder that will be mistaken as a heart ache. "I don't have any friends, so it makes it easy," he says in the clip.
"The Iceman" opens in limited release on May 3.
Four more weeks! That's all that's left before "Arrested Development" premieres on Netflix on May 26. The fifteen-episode fourth season has fans stoked, but unfortunately they will have to wait until the debut to know just what the Bluths are up to this time around.
"AD" star Jeffrey Tambor explained he must remain mum on the subject. "You think I can tell you? I can't. We have such a spoiler alert and I actually signed something, so I can't," he said, adding, "I really don't know and I'm not going to tell you. Just watch it, all fifteen."
He did, however, elaborate on his reaction to the fan-driven excitement for the show's long-delayed fourth season.
A movie like "Monsters University" pretty much explains itself. It's about monsters, the Pixar creations from "Monsters Inc." to be specific, at college. It seems like it would be simple enough, but the actual story for "Monsters University" has mostly been kept from us until a new trailer debuted today over at Yahoo! Movies.
As you have probably put together by now, "Monsters University" follows Sulley and Mike to college, where they meet for the first time, but what we didn't know was that they would be competing scare games in order to stay in school.
The stakes will be high, but we have a feeling that we know how it all turns out. Find out when "Monsters University" opens on June 21.

Robert De Niro has made a reputation out of being one of the toughest on-screen actors to ever work in Hollywood. The list of rough characters he has played throughout his career extends far beyond almost any other actor. That's why it's so weird to see him cry.
The folks over at Next Movie have put together this super cut of all the times that Robert De Niro gets really, really sad in movies and the video itself ends up being really, really sad.
Check it out above at the risk of feeling bad for Robert De Niro.
Only a handful of actors have ever had a writer craft a role with them in mind. That's what happened with Matthew McConaughey when "Take Shelter" director Jeff Nichols approached him about the title character, an outlaw with a heart of gold, in his new film "Mud."
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz spoke with McConaughey, he asked him how you approach a role that was made for you, and according to the actor, you try not to think about it too much.

The big movie musicals today are always looking for leading men and women who can be the triple threat that made Hollywood stars and starlets decades ago, but that kind of talent is a rare breed these days, expect for a few notable exceptions. Deadline is now reporting that 20th Century Fox has won the rights to the Broadway musical "Guys and Dolls," and they have two specific leading men in mind who fit that bill.
According to the report, the studio will pursue Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the lead roles of Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit, the roles Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra famously played in the 1955 adaptation of the musical.
