WILD GIRLS MEET HARD-PARTYING BOYS IN “MIKE AND DAVE NEED WEDDING DATES”

“Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” where boys meet girls by accident (literally!).

Anna Kendrick, Zac Efron, Adam DeVine and Aubrey Plaza star as the troublesome quartet in the upcoming adult romantic comedy.

The R-rated movie “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” where DeVine and Efron take on the titular roles, are warned by their family to smarten-up their hard-partying ways before their sister’s wedding in Hawaii, and to bring two respectable girls as dates. After posting an ad on Craigslist, they’re contacted by a cadre of prospective suitors, and they ultimately settle on Alice (Kendrick) and Tatiana (Plaza), whose interest in Adam and Dave extends to little more than the prospect of a free holiday on the islands.

The film is based on a true story – though the real Mike and Dave sensibly decided not to bring dates from Craigslist in the end. The motion picture takes the intriguing idea of two brothers finding dates for a wedding and runs with it, adding unexpected layers of heart and two outrageous new lead characters. Mike and Dave have reassured their sister and parents that they’ve got the wedding wired. There will be no craziness, stunts, mischief, trampolines (don’t ask!) or fireworks. They’ve found the perfect dates to keep things under control.

“The dates, Tatiana and Alice, were fun to write because they’re balls-out,” says scribe Cohen. “They’re pretty intense, crazy, down-on-their-luck, tough chicks who decide they need a break and, after hearing about Mike and Dave’s ad, they transform themselves into nice, sweet, respectable-looking women. But as soon as they arrive in Hawaii, they go into extreme party-mode and start ruining things.”

Mike and Dave certainly know how to rock a room, but they’re small-timers compared to their dates. As background to Alice and Tatiana, Szymanski observes that they “have a history of misadventures that have taken them around the world. They can travel around the globe with only a couple of backpacks, and have stories to tell for ages.”

When we meet Alice, she is heartbroken, having been left at the altar. “So a wedding is about the last place she should be,” says Anna Kendrick, “and her downward spiral continues.” Alice’s coping mechanism: alcohol. At her core, Alice is somewhat innocent. “It’s nice play such a naïve character,” adds Kendrick. “And Zac’s character, Dave, is just as innocent. A surprising kind of gentle comedy comes out of that double-naivety.”

Aubrey Plaza describes Alice’s cohort Tatiana as a founding member of the Bad Girls Club. She’s a tough bitch from Philadelphia who doesn’t take s*** from anyone. Tatiana likes to party and go on adventures. She is the Alpha in any group.” Underneath that tough exterior, though, are some soft and chewy feelings about her pal Alice. “Tatiana wants to help her best friend get her groove back after she’s gone through a really bad breakup,” offers Plaza. “Mike and Dave’s ad for dates to their sister’s destination wedding is a chance for a free vacay, to party endlessly and get that groove back.”

As for the brothers, whatever their differences, Mike and Dave are tight. “They have a symbiotic relationship,” says Efron. “They can’t exist without one another. They’re as much best friends as they are brothers.”

“Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” opens September 14 in cinemas from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

                “Trolls” takes the audience to a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic creatures (Trolls), with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.  “Trolls” features the voice of Anna Kendrick as Poppy, the optimistic leader of the Trolls, and her polar opposite, Branch, played by Justin Timberlake. Together, this unlikely pair of Trolls must embark on an adventure that takes them far beyond the only world they’ve ever known.

TO LOVE AND TO GUARD IN ROMANTIC ACTION COMEDY “MR. RIGHT”

In the tradition of highly-successful romantic action comedies comes a one-of-a-kind love story in “Mr. Right” starring two of Hollywood’s well-sought actors Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell.

In “Mr. Right,” Martha (Anna Kendrick) discovers that her new beau, Francis (Sam Rockwell), is a professional assassin… with a cause.  He kills the people ordering the hits. As the bodies pile up, Martha must decide whether to flee or join her man in the mayhem.

Sam Rockwell is that rare Hollywood star who’s equally adept in somber dramas like the most recent Broadway revival “Fool For Love” and BAFTA award-winning “Moon” as he is playing quirky characters in such black-humored action fare “Seven Psychopaths” and “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” When director Paco Cabezas met with the actor in late 2012, Rockwell immediately responded to Mr. Right ‘s subversive sense of humor. “I said ‘yes’ right away because Max Landis wrote a really fun script that reminded me of movies like “Grosse Point Blank” in the way it mixed action and romantic comedy,” he says. “I saw Mr. Right as being kind of like Mr. and Mrs. Smith-meets-Silver Lining Playbook where you have two dysfunctional bi-polar type people who find each other. They’re both hot messes, on edge and scary. Francis and Martha might freak other people out, but they don’t freak each other out.”

Kendrick also sparked to Mr. Right because she knew Rockwell would be playing the title role. “I always pictured Mr. Right as Sam,” she says. “I knew he would bring amazing energy to the character. He makes you love this guy who’s killing people. but because it’s Sam playing Francis, you’re rooting for him.”

Producer Jacobs says “Often times with movies in this genre, you see the female lead running scared once the gunfire starts. We needed to find an actress who had that America’s sweetheart girl next door quality, but underneath all of that, in Mr. Right, the gunfire kind of turns Martha on. Anna knew how to pull off that turn.”

The movie veered away from using CGI trickery in favor of old-fashioned physical fisticuffs. “I’m tired of watching action movies plagued with digital effects where nothing is real,” Cabezas explains. “In Mr. Right, everything’s real. Sam Rockwell did 99 percent of the action himself, and he did it with grace and speed.”

Rockwell rose to the live-action challenge. “I’m not formally trained as a dancer but I have been boxing off and on for twenty years so that helped a lot with the lateral movement, feet agility, that kind of crap,” Rockwell explains. “It’s all the same stuff.”

Blending dancing, violence and romance into one-of-a-kind hybrid entertainment, Mr. Right aims to seduce audiences with its twisted take on the classic boy-meets-girl formula. “I don’t have a clue how to categorize this movie, and that’s what I love about Mr. Right,” says Cabezas. “It’s funny, it’s a thriller, it has action and a lot of heart. In that sense, it’s an explosive cocktail. I love movies that are great roller coasters of emotion, where you never know what to expect. I hope people who see Mr. Right  have a laugh and have a good time and say ‘Wow, I wasn’t expecting that.'”

Rated R16 by the MTRB, “Mr. Right” opens April 6 in cinemas from Pioneer Films.
