A comedy starring three of the hottest rising actors in Hollywood right now? Yeah, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that we’re looking forward to the release of “That Awkward Moment“!
Starring Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, this bromantic comedy follows three best friends who find themselves at a point in their respective relationships where they have to decide exactly where it’s headed, before – surprise surprise – girls end up complicating matters.
We’ve now got some new character posters starring Efron, Jordan and Teller as well as Imogen Poots. Each poster plays on a joke we’ve already seen from the first red-band trailer which proved Teller is once again the scene-stealer – although this looks like an excellent vehicle for Efron and Jordan to both show their comedy skills.
“That Awkward Moment” is scheduled for release on Janaury 31st 2014. Click below to view the posters.

Zac Efron is out and Nicholas Hoult is in for European-set car chase thriller “Autobahn,” according to writer/director Eran Creevey, who shared the news at the London Screenwriters Festival last month. Amber Heard is still in for the female lead role, while IM Global now lists Jean Reno as part of the cast too.
Now Hoult will take on the role of an American backpacker who takes a job as a pickup driver for a gang of German drug smugglers. Things go awry, leading him to flee from his employers in a high speed chase around Munich. Heard will play his girlfriend. Filming had been set for this fall, but will now commence in March of 2014 – that is, if they manage to keep everybody attached to the project this time. Hoult’s reps did not immediately comment on this casting.
Hoult, known for his role as Beast in “X-Men: First Class” and the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” recently wrapped the adaptation of Gillian Flynn bestseller “Dark Places” opposite Charlize Theron. He most recently became attached to Drake Doremus’ next film, a sci-fi romance called “Equals” with Kristen Stewart.

Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan make a pact they all find very difficult to keep in the first red band trailer for bromantic comedy “That Awkward Moment” (formerly “Are We Officially Dating?”).
The footage looks funny enough with Teller acting as scene-stealer as always, but gotta say, this charming and talented cast is the main draw for this familiar young-male-driven story of twenty-something guys who decide to stay single and then fall for some beautiful young ladies (Efron for Imogen Poots, Teller for Mackenzie Davis), complicating everything.
Cuss-filled rants about girls, crass jokes involving fake genitalia and Efron’s ass are all par for the course here which is not all that exciting, but again, it’s hard to deny how watchable this cast is. “That Awkward Moment” will be released on January 31, 2014 and the first red band trailer can be viewed below.

The first clip and some new photos have been released for the Zac Efron-led ensemble drama “Parkland”, which deal with the events immediately following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy through a spectrum of characters who were on the ground in Dallas 50 years ago. The large ensemble also includes Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, James Badge Dale, Jacki Weaver, Colin Hanks, and Marcia Gay Harden.
“Parkland” is based on the book, “Four days in November: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy” by “Helter Skelter” author Vincent Bugliosi. It is an exciting, precise, and definitive narrative and is drawn from “Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy”, a huge and historic account of the events and all the conspiracy theories it spawned.
In the brief clip and photos below (via Yahoo and The Playlist) we’re introduced to Efron as Dr. Charles Carrico, a young resident at Parkland Hospital which is where JFK’s body was brought in hopes of resuscitation. (Harden plays a nurse and it appears that Mark Duplass is a Secret Service agent.)
“Parkland”, the directorial debut of Peter Landesman, opens nationwide on October 4th.

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne get some unruly new “Neighbors” in the Nicholas Stoller comedy formerly titled “Townies,” and today we’ve got the first red bad trailer. The new parents meet the new frat house brothers next door, led by Zac Efron and Dave Franco, and seem to want to befriend them at first, but the out of control parties and mayhem soon descend into all out war in the neighborhood.
It seems like fairly standard guy comedy, with the two sides one-upping each other with pranks and gross-out gags involving condoms, but there really is no waning appetite for this kind of stuff is there? Nicholas Stoller also has a good track record with commercially successful and genuinely funny stuff, so this one looks good so far.
“Neighbors” opens on May 9, 2014, filling the void left by “The Hangover” for the first time in 4 years. See the first red band trailer plus a few stills from the film below.

Zac Efron is in way over his head in the first trailer released for John F. Kennedy assassination drama “Parkland”, which will be released just in time for the 50th anniversary of the President’s death. The Peter Landesman film focuses on the lesser known individuals who all played a part that history-making day, including Efron’s inexperienced young doctor, the only one on duty at the time JFK was rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital.
The cast also features newcomer Jeremy Strong as gunman Lee Harvey Oswald, James Badge Dale Lee’s brother Robert, Jacki Weaver as his mother Marguerite, Billy Bob Thornton as Secret Service Agent Forrest Sorrels, Marcia Gay Harden as the head nurse of Parkland Hospital and Paul Giamatti as Abraham Zapruder, whose recording of the Presidential motorcade became a key piece of evidence in the ensuing investigation.
“Parkland” heads to Venice and Toronto next month and will be released on October 4th. See the first trailer below.

It’s set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival and was just recently set for September 20th release date, and now we have the first official photos from JFK assassination drama “Parkland”, via USA Today. Among the first photos are stage actor Jeremy Strong play Lee Harvey Oswald and Zac Efron playing the rookie doctor – the only one on duty at the time – who tried to save both the President and his assassin.
Peter Landesman wrote the script and made his feature directorial debut on the film which chronicles the lead-up to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and its aftermath. Parkland refers to the hospital where JFK was rushed and where his assassin Lee Harvy Oswald also died two days later, and follows some of the lesser known individuals who played a role in the history-making events. The cast also features James Badge Dale Lee’s brother Robert, Jacki Weaver as his mother Marguerite, Billy Bob Thornton as Secret Service Agent Forrest Sorrels, Marcia Gay Harden as the head nurse of Parkland Hospital and Paul Giamatti as Abraham Zapruder, whose recording of the Presidential motorcade became a key piece of evidence in the ensuing investigation.
USA Today has more photos of the aforementioned cast members, so be sure to click over to check them out. The photos of Efron and Strong are below.

Two unlikely names have emerged in connection with “Star Wars Episode VII”, and it’s probably too early to tell how solid this rumor is, but Latino Review is reporting Disney has been bringing up Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling very frequently in connection with the highly anticipated sequel.
LR can’t pinpoint what character Efron is up for, though Gosling is in line for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son, which would make some sense since the new film, to be directed by JJ Abrams despite recent rumors, takes place 30 years after the events of “The Return of the Jedi.” Our friends at Bleeding Cool have smartly consulted the character breakdowns they received a couple of months ago and determined that Efron may well be eyeing the “late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident” character, while Gosling could be the one described as “thirtysomething male, intellectual.”
I for one would welcome both Efron and Gosling in “Episode VII,” both being unexpected and somehow refreshing choices in different ways for such an iconic franchise. There are at least an additional five characters who are considered leads, including two teenage females, so I’m sure we are just getting started with “Star Wars” rumors. With how intently people will be pursuing their sources for any morsel of news, it might be a small miracle if Disney manages to keep a tight lid on things until an announcement can be made at either their D23 convention next month or another scheduled announcement of their choosing.

Zac Efron is attached to star in college-set crime thriller “Narc”, which is based on a true story, reports Deadline. Seemingly in its early stages, the film is now searching for a screenwriter to script the tale of a popular college fraternity President and star lacrosse player who is busted for cocaine possession and strikes a deal with the cops to go undercover as an informant, leading a double life of turning in big-time criminals while maintaining his Big Man on Campus status.
Efron is currently playing a different kind of frat house President in Nicholas Stoller’s comedy “Townies” opposite Seth Rogen and Dave Franco. This fall he’ll head to Germany to film car chase thriller “Autobahn” opposite Amber Heard and he has rom com “Are We Offcially Dating?” and JFK assassination drama “Parkland” awaiting release.
