We’ve been inundated with rom-coms for years and now a new wave of biting, unromantic comedies are starting to creep their way onto theatre screens (just watch the trailer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s decidedly unromantic Don Jon).
The latest addition to this trend is the British ensemble non-rom-com I Give It A Year. The movie has already made it’s theatrical rounds across the pond and was just released on DVD in the UK, but is set to hit North American screens in limited release this coming August.
Written and directed by Dan Mazer, the writer behind Borat, (yes, Borat. Really.), I Give it a Year features a cast that includes Rose Byrne, Stephen Merchant, Rafe Spall, Minnie Driver, Anna Faris and Simon Baker.

It may be heating up outside, but it’s downright chilly in Disney’s upcoming animated adventure, Frozen. We’re getting our first look at the Arctic-set movie with a teaser trailer and just-released stills.
Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell as daydreamer Anna, Jonathan Groff, Idina Menzel, and the film’s comic relief, a snowman named Olaf voiced by Josh Gad. With the musically-inclined cast of Broadway stars, you can bet there's going to be quite a few musical numbers.
The story follows Anna, a young optimist who lives in a kingdom trapped in an eternal winter thanks to a spell put upon the land by Anna’s sister Elsa the Snow Queen (Menzel). Anna teams up with a strong mountain man named Kristoff (Groff) and his reindeer sidekick Sven on an epic journey to attempt to bring an end to Elsa’s wintry spell.

Since opening last week, the apocalyptic comedy This Is the End has earned $33 million at the box office, making it one of the biggest hit comedies of the year. But despite its name, the rapture riot by writer-directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg struggled to find its conclusion, and even had to reshoot the film's final absurdist minutes.
SPOILER ALERT: The rest of this article discusses the movie's ending, so avert your eyes if you'd like your laughs unspoiled. You've been warned!
"Tell me the story of us."
What sounds like pillow talk between a couple well into their twilight years is actually one of the many heartfelt exchanges between best friends in-platonic-love Frances, an amateur dancer who has trouble leaving places, and Sophie (Mickey Sumner), her roommate who is, as Frances says, essentially the same person just with different hair.
In Frances Ha, notoriously unsentimental writer-director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding) crafts a beautifully realized, black and white-lensed look at female friendship and quarter-life malaise with Greta Gerwig as his star and co-writer, whom he reunites with after 2011's Greenberg. But when asked about whether he set out to make a decidedly happy movie after years of difficult dramas, he says nothing was planned.

Strap yourself in for the first look at the latest collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio because it's a doozy.
Set to a thumping song by Kanye West (or should I say Yeezus?), we see Leo as Jordan Belfort, whose book the tale is based on, a hot shot stockbroker who has more money than he knows what to do with, and from the looks of things he's tried to be creative with his spending, who refuses to cooperate when charges of fraud are directed at the firm. But that's not the fun part.
It all adds up to a thrilling, if thematically lighter, Scorsese flick who seems to be having a blast with this tale of greed and white collar crime.
Get more, including Leo dancing and some monkey business, after the jump with the first trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street.
