Jason Sudeikis is now a leading man in WE'RE THE MILLERS


“Saturday Night Live” breakout star Jason Sudeikis (“Horrible Bosses,” “The Bounty Hunter”) plays David, a small-time drug dealer who's suddenly sent on a mission to retrieve a huge amount of pot across the Mexican border, in New Line Cinema's wacky comedy, “We're the Millers.”

His solution as to how to accomplish that forces him to live out his worst nightmare: to be stuck in a confined space with a bunch of people he doesn’t really like, even if he’s the one who convinced them to come along in the first place as his fake wife and kids. Sudeikis responded to the humor of “We're the Millers,” and also to the story’s heart, stating, “There’s a little bit of that squeezed in there, an underlying theme about family not necessarily having to be the one you’re born into, but one that you choose…even if my character does it solely out of convenience and desperation.”

Meet the Nooglers (New + Google) of THE INTERNSHIP (Opens August 14)


Both trying to catch up with the digital world, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn did not look far for reference in the tech-comedy "The Internship." Instead, admittedly they drew from their own experience how it's like to swim in the digital age.

“This was not a difficult role to prepare for. I don't know that much about computers, only in the past few years, I discovered how to work the internet,” says Wilson. “And Vince had to be one of the last people in the world to get a cell phone, so he might be even further behind than me.We’re both trying to catch up with the digital world.”

The magical tale of Cinderella to be staged in Resorts World Manila


Once upon a time, there was a young beautiful girl named Cinderella... Blame it to my multimedia memory but this line stuck in my head since I was young because of the 6-part story book (including Hansel & Gretel, 7 in 1 Blow, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Frog Prince, and oh I forgot the last one hehe) sold in our school when I was in Kindergarten.  

Why am I saying this?  This just shows how Cinderella has been part of our literary literacy.  And now, families, kids and kids at heart will have the chance to see Cinderella on stage starting October 9!  And it will be shown not in any ordinary stage but in Resorts World Manila's New Performing Arts Theater (NPAT), the biggest stage in the country and home to previously shown world-class musicals The Sound of Music and King and I!

Chloë Grace Moretz is back as Hit Girl in Kick-Ass 2


Kick-Ass wouldn’t be half the hero he is without Hit Girl, and no sequel would begin production without her in the mix. Imagined by Award winning writer Mark Millar as a tribute to his eldest daughter, Hit Girl has struck a chord with readers since her introduction and grown exponentially in popularity. The young woman who brought her to life, Chloë Grace Moretz, has been working up a storm—earning critical acclaim in such fare as Let Me In, as well as working with the likes of Martin Scorsese in Hugo and Tim Burton in Dark Shadows and soon to be seen starring opposite Julianne Moore as the title character in the remake of Carrie. Like her co-stars, she was thrilled to step back into her Kick-Ass role as Hit Girl, unfazed by the commotion caused by her appearance the first time around.

"The obvious difference is that I'm older now, and the difference between 11 and 15, which is how old I was when we finished, is that you're a different person, obviously," Executive Producer Neal H. Moretz reveals. "You're calculating more ideas, you're experiencing more things in your own life, you're not just living through other people's eyes, you're making your own decisions."
