The first image has landed for Judd Apatow ’s next movie TRAINWRECK and it's full of all kinds of laughter. The film's star Amy Schumer wrote the script which is said to draw from her real-life experiences as a "commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways."

Judd Apatow updates us on the next Pee-Wee Herman movie

You guys didn’t forget about the next PEE WEE HERMAN movie, did you? The last news we received on the film was that production should begin in 2014. But how long have we been talking about this though? The first time was back in 2009. Next year in 2010, Judd Apatow jumped on as producer. Unfortunately, all we’ve gotten is just updates. Well, I hate to say it but I have...

Judd Apatow to direct Train Wreck, written by and starring Amy Schumer

But, for his fifth feature, Apatow will be handing the writing reins over to someone else to focus on the filmmaking side of the equation.

Anyone a fan of the show KEY & PEELE? Universal has made a deal with director Judd Apatow , Keegan Michael-Key, and Jordan Peele for an untitled comedy flick.

Cool Videos: Judd Apatow and comedian Maria Bamford remember the '90s

Ah, the 1990s. Randy "The Ram" Robinson might have thought they sucked , but I have many fond memories about the decade. Bill Clinton was in office for most of it, directors like Kevin Smith , P.T. Anderson and Quentin Tarantino got their starts and dubstep didn't exist. Yes, the '90s were awesome. Vanity Fair is celebrating its 100th anniversary and asked...

Review: Salinger

PLOT: The life and legacy of author J.D Salinger, who, after receiving universal acclaim with “The Catcher in the Rye” became a virtual recluse. REVIEW: J.D Salinger is without a doubt one of the most important literary voices of the last century. Who among us hasn’t read “The Catcher in the Rye”? It’s essentially a right-of-passage, and generations upon generations of young...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with This Is 40 director Judd Apatow

In THIS IS 40, writer/director Judd Apatow tells the story of a family dealing with growing older and facing change. There is a real sense of honesty in this “sort of sequel” to KNOCKED UP. This is certainly due in part to the casting of Mr. Apatow’s real life wife, the lovely Leslie Mann , as well as their children Maude and Iris. Yet for me, there is something about his work and this...

C'mon Hollywood: Where in the hell is the new Pee-Wee Herman movie?

*Note: The secret word for this column is: “allegedly.” You know what to do. Like many of you, I grew up on Saturday morning cartoons when they were still awesome. The topper to those cartoon mornings was seeing the grey-suited manchild in a red bowtie and shiny shoes known as Pee-Wee Herman bring the most absurd laughter into my house with Pee-Wee’s Playhouse....
