A new adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol is on the way. This one will be a musical, with Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell set to star.
Now this latest take on A Christmas Carol has a home. After a bidding war which included Netflix, Warner Bros., and Paramount all making offers to acquire the movie, it was Apple who ultimately won the project and is now in final negotiations to complete the acquisition. And it sounds like they dropped some big money on the table to pass all other bidders.
We’ve all seen Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne in comedies before. Both are clearly up to the task of making audiences laugh. And now we will get to see the two work together in Sean Anders‘ film Instant Family, which is based on a true story.
Paramount has dropped the first trailer for the upcoming film which sees the two play a married couple who suddenly adopt three children and learn that parenting may be difficult, but there are great rewards that come with it. Check out the trailer and a featurette below.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), We’re the Millers stars Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis as David Clark, Denver’s #1 dope dealer whose entire stash has been stolen by thugs with great bone structure.
David is recruited by well-to-do pompous asshole Brad Gurdlinger (Ed Helms, The Hangover Part III) to pick up a Winnebago full of marijuana (enough to kill Willy Nelson) from Mexico, for which he’ll be rewarded handsomely.
Realizing that one man attempting to get through customs with an weed-filled RV all by himself is too suspicious, he hires a stripper (Jennifer Aniston) and two teenagers, a homeless goth girl (Emma Roberts) and an awkward virgin (Will Poulter), to play an all-American family – the Millers – so as to not arouse suspicion while crossing the border.
At a press junket for their latest movie The Three Stooges, directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly took some time to discuss the long-rumored sequel to their 1994 smash hit debut Dumb & Dumber, which also helped launch the career of star Jim Carrey. Coming Soon reports that Peter Farrelly said that the movie is definitely in the works with the stars returning and that the brothers are looking to begin production later this year on Dumb & Dumber 2 (title subject to change).”
We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September,” Farrelly said. “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”

It feels like only yesterday that Toy Story first came out and changed the world of movies as we know them. A fully-animated feature film? Absolutely unheard of! And it almost never happened, with numerous issues putting to the test the young Pixar Animation team trying to make it. But it did happen, eventually, and computer animated movies have become a staple of modern day cinema.
The movie, for those who have somehow never seen it, follows a young boy’s collection of toys led by the once-favorite, a cowboy named Woody (Tom Hanks), who’s trying to come to terms with the boy’s impressive new favorite toy, the highly sought after Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) action figure.
