Ever since Zach Galifianakis played in The Hangover, he has been the movie industry’s comedy go-to man, as he is set to be featured in several comedies this year. So it is no surprise that The Hangover‘s director, Todd Phillips, teams up for Zach again for this upcoming comedy starring Zach and Robert Downey Jr. Trailer above, synopsis below.

Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) is an expectant first-time father whose wife’s due date is a mere five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan–on what turns out to be a cross-country road trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter’s last nerve.

The first full-length trailer for David Fincher’s upcoming film, The Social Network, has been released courtesy of Yahoo.

In this film, Jesse Eisenberg portrays one of this generation’s most unique characters, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history, but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.

Having David Fincher, director of Se7en, Fight Club, The Game, and other great films, direct the movie and Jesse Eisenberg, star of Adventureland and Zombieland, is such a great idea. It hits theaters on October 1st, and I will be there

Can we say Oscars?

Here comes the latest trailer to Robert Rodriguez’s forthcoming movie, Machete. Collaborating with an all-start cast, Rodriquez strikes yet again with another movie that looks to be a hit, among critics and fans alike.

The movie stars such actors as Danny Trejo, Robert Deniro, Jessica Alba, Cheech Marin, Steven Segal, Michelle Rodriguez, Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan, etc., and will be in theaters this upcoming September 3rd.

A brief synopsis is below.

The film focuses on Machete (Trejo), a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lindsay Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Jessica Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

Sidebar: I am going to be there on September 3rd. I love Rodriguez’s work, especially in Sin City, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Faculty, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Will you be going to see this?
