Following its debut at the Toronto Film Festival last year, Blue Sky Media has released the first trailer for Welcome to Me, starring Kristen Wiig. The actress plays Alice Klieg, who suffers from borderline personality disorder, and though she manages it - and the accompanying medications and therapeutic care - fairly well, past tumult has left a broken marriage and strained familial relationships in its wake. She finds grounding in her daily routine, which includes memorizing every episode of Oprah and carefully monitoring her wardrobe and protein-laden diet.
One can't help but get the sense that Alice is straining to embrace bigger things, and when her numbers come up in the state lottery, suddenly she gets focused... on eighty million dollars' worth of possibilities. In quick succession, Alice buys a stretch of hours at a local television company, eschews her medication and therapy, moves into a casino, and creates her own talk show about - what else? - herself. As her show gains an audience (despite some off-the-wall cooking and medical demonstrations), Alice realizes that viewers identify with her re-enactments of past hurts and social slights. What she doesn't recognize is that her own hunger for fame may just reflect a deeper need to be heard.
Linda Cardellini, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tim Robbins co-star in Welcome to Me, directed by Shira Piven. A release date has not been set for this indie comedy, but stay tuned for updates on when it may hit theaters. In the meantime, watch as Kristen Wiig's Alice tries to figure out what to do with the $86 million she won in the first footage from Welcome to Me.
Writer Matt Rager adapted the feature screenplay based on the novel.

Black or White tells the story of a grandfather (Academy Award winner Kevin Costner) who is suddenly left to care for his beloved granddaughter. When her paternal grandmother (Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer) seeks custody with the help of her brother (Anthony Mackie), the little girl is torn between two families who love her deeply. With the best intentions at heart, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings about race, forgiveness, and understanding. Anchored by an all-star cast and based on real events, the movie is a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white.

Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested early this morning in connection with a hit-and-run accident on a commercial set for Straight Outta Compton. The incident killed at least one man, whom many thought was original Battlestar Galactica star Terry Carter, but instead turned out to be a close friend of Knight's. Suge Knight's attorney James Blatt originally confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that one of the victims was in fact the 86-year-old Carter, who also starred in the 1970s TV series McCloud. But this was later corrected. Associated Press claims the unidentified victim who died at a local hospital was 55 years old. TMZ reports that he worked at a tow truck company in Compton, with witnesses claiming him to be, "an OG in the neighborhood." Accounts of the incident, which happened late Thursday, are still not quite clear at this time.
The alleged murder happened in Compton, California, during a commercial shoot for the upcoming biopic Straight Outta Compton, which charts the rise of gangsta rap group N.W.A.TMZ says that Suge Knight showed up on the set, and was told to leave by security, when an altercation took place. Original N.W.A. members and Straight Outta Compton producers Dr. Dre and Ice Cube were present, but it isn't known if they were involved in the altercation. Deadline reports that this was actually the first of two separate altercations, with the fatal accident taking place at the Tam's Burgers parking lot.
There are conflicting reports that Suge Knight struck and killed Terry Carter by accident, while trying to flee the altercation, while other reports claim that he struck Terry Carter and another man, actor and activist Cle Sloan, in retaliation for the altercation. One report says Cle Sloan was injured, while another said he has died. There is no confirmation at this time. Here's what LAPD Lt. John Corina had to say in a statement.
"Looks like he drove backwards and struck the victims and drove forwards and struck them again. The people we talked to say it looked like it was an intentional act."
Cle Sloan, who has had small roles in films such as Training Day, Street Kings and End of Watch, was said to have suffered "non life-threatening injuries", and is currently in the hospital. Though, EW says both men were killed. We have no official confirmation yet if the Terry Carter killed yesterday is the TV actor, or a tow truck company employee from Compton. Suge Knight is currently being held at a West Hollywood police station on $2 million bail. We'll keep you posted with any further updates on this breaking story.

With just two days left until Super Bowl XLIX, 20th Century Fox has debuted their full Super Bowl trailer for the highly-anticipated Kingsman: The Secret Service featuring brand new footage. While it's only a 30-second spot, there's plenty of action crammed into this small amount of space for director Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of the Mark Millar comic book. This thrill-packed trailer is set to the Rob Zombie song "Ging Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga."
Kingsman tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Colin Firth stars as Harry Hart, who gives his juvenile delinquent relative Eggsy (Taron Egerton) the chance to turn his life around and become a Kingsman agent. Samuel L. Jackson also stars as the nefarious Valentine, whose evil plans will result in the deaths of countless lives, unless the Kingsman agents can stop him.
Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Jack Davenport, Mark Hamill, Sofia Boutella, Neve Gachev and Sophie Cookson round out the supporting cast in this comic book adaptation. Check out the Super Bowl trailer and stay tuned for more footage as we get closer to the February 13 release date.
Super Bowl episode 49.1, "Super Bowl XLIX" airs on NBC February 1st, 2015.
Kingsman: The Secret Service comes to theaters February 13th, 2015 and stars Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, Mark Hamill, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Jack Davenport, Taron Egerton, Sofia Boutella. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn.
Alan Rickman and Zosia Mamet will also star in Liz Garbus' New York-set family comedy.
Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson has signed on to star in the upcoming New Line romantic comedy How to Be Single, along with other new casting additions Rebel Wilson, Dan Stevens and Leslie Mann. Community star Alison Brie is also in final negotiations to join the cast. We first reported on the project back in February, when Lily Collins was in talks to come on board, but it isn't known if she is still involved, since she wasn't mentioned in The Hollywood Reporter's new report.
The story is adapted from Liz Tuccillo's 2008 novel of the same name, which will be an ensemble comedy featuring intersecting stories, in the same vein as Valentine's Day and He's Just Not That Into You. The plot focuses on the lifestyle of being single, from both the male and female perspectives, suggesting that it is our time out of relationships, not in them, that define us as human beings. The adaptation delves into subjects such as blind dating, casual sex, fear of commitment and when to get married. No details were given for any of the cast members' characters.
Christian Ditter (Love, Rosie) is directing from an adapted screenplay originally written by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (The Vow, Valentine's Day), with Dana Fox (Couples Retreat) working on the most recent draft. Dana Fox is also producing alongside John Rickard, with Marcus Viscidi, Nancy Juvonen and Drew Barrymore serving as executive producers. No production schedule was given at this time.
The dramedy garnered positive reviews after a Jan. 24 premiere at Sundance
