Photo Dump: Jason Bateman Really Wants You To Watch Identity Thief, Y'all

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | January 28, 2013 | Comments ()


Jason Bateman isn't the only one that wants you to watch the supposed comedy Identity Thief, I'm sure.Do you think that he wants to play a version of Michael Bluth for the rest of his life? If you see his new movie then his dream is that much closer to fruition. Look at these pictures and then tell me, honestly, if without context you would think it was "Arrested Development."

Identity Thief also stars Melissa McCarthy, Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, T.I., Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick, and Eric Stonestreet and opens February 8th.










You see that last picture? That's Bateman and McCarthy realizing they've been completely typecast again. I would say that Paul Walker is typecast, but then he would need to be cast in something other than another Fast and the Furious sequel. Yes, there will be Fast and the Furious 6 starring Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. I suspect there will be sex, car racing, legal troubles, and complete idiocy.


Have we discussed About Time yet? Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd, True Grit) star in the romantic time-travel comedy. Gleeson plays Tim, who discovers at the age of 21 that he can travel through time. So he decides to get a girlfriend (McAdams), but then something happens during his time travels that erases their meeting and he has to start all over. It sounds like 50 First Dates with hopping through time standing in for the amnesia thing Drew Barrymore had.


Ben Affleck is total serious movie dude, but we all remember that he was the bomb in Phantoms and a total fart in Daredevil. His newest starring role is in Terrence Malick's To the Wonder. This one is a romantic drama. A rom-dram. Affleck and Olga Kurylenko meet in France and decide to move to Oklahoma together. (Like I'm supposed to suspend that much disbelief?) Once the couple gets to Oklahoma, a priest (Javier Bardem) and Affleck's childhood friend (Rachel McAdams) threaten to make life hard and stuff. In Oklahoma.






Finally, I have saved the best for last. Feast your eyes on the promotional photo from Jurassic Park 3D! WOW!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • I know I'm in the super minority here, but i actually LIKED Daredevil. Especially the R Rated Directors cut. I always think of Affleck as the guy who's going to try to screw women some place very uncomfortable!

  • Bodhi

    Like the backseat of a Volkswagen?

  • Buck Forty

    Do we mock people for taking shitty jobs to feed their families? Let us not mock Walker and Diesel for doing the same then. Better they be working on F&F6 than on unemployment.

  • Matchetes

    Honestly, Bateman could be dressed in a spacesuit, fighting a zombie dinosaur and I would think it was a scene from Arrested Development.

    Is that fair? No, but we all have our crosses to bare.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I bet "magic time" in Oklahoma is particularly lovely. It's the only explanation I can think of and it is Malick after all. Plus aren't there dinosaur bones in Oklahoma, right? Reincorporation.

  • e jerry powell

    Unless they've been frakked out of the earth's crust, yeah.

    Damned oil companies.

  • Soo....what am I supposed to see in the Jurassic Park pic that makes me wow? It's just a still from the first movie, yes?

  • Pinky McLadybits


  • dagnabbit

    Will someone please cast Bateman and McCarthy in the Victorian period romantic drama their rich array of skills so clearly demand?

  • dizzylucy

    I've seen the Identity Thief trailer in theaters two or three times now, and each time the audiences was cracking up, so maybe it'll do well.

    Rachel McAdams and time travel...seems I've heard of this before...

  • Irina

    Isn't Rachel McAdams still traumatized from The Time Traveler's Wife?
    And yay for Bill Weasley getting acting jobs!

  • Rocabarra

    1.) Boy that Robert Patrick is aging well.

    2.) No matter what happens in life, I will always love Vin Diesel. I don't know why, I can't explain it, I just do. Maybe it's the voice.

    3.) Domnhall Gleeson is a.k.a. Bill Weasley. Just sayin'.

  • I'm going to see Identity Thief and hope against hope there are more jokes than the ones that appear in the trailer. It's starting to look like "these are the only good ones, shove them in the trailer" as opposed to The Heat which has had a couple different cuts of the trailer already.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Paul Walker is already way past the age where I believe he would drive recklessly on purpose.

  • Kballs

    Apparently they replaced all the wheat and corn in Oklahoma with ANGST! Motherfucking ANGST!!!

  • Bert_McGurt

    And apparently bison. Though that may be Rachel McAdams' personal herd, since that is something that all Canadians secretly own. I shouldn't be telling you this, but I have ten and they're all named Jeff (except for the two that are named Geoff).

  • Mrs. Julien

    Jesus Murphy, Bert! Don't make me lock you in the washroom with only The Trouble with Tracy and Definition bootlegs for company.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Make it Rocket Robin Hood and The Littlest Hobo and it'll be like Saturday mornings when I was four all over again.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Or Tales of the Wizard of Oz?

    Oh, the World of Oz is a funny, funny place
    Where everyone where's a funny, funny face...

  • Bert_McGurt

    And the streets are paved with gold...

  • BendinIntheWind

    I misread this post as "Infidelity Thief" and imagined a whole nother Jason Bateman film...
