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

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!
