For his follow-up to last year’s Drinking Buddies and 24 Exposures, writer-director-actor Joe Swanberg has put together quite a tight little murderers’ row of “people you aren’t surprised to see in a small, naturalistic, dialogue-heavy indie dramedy about finally becoming an adult.” Anna Kendrick stars alongside Swanberg, Away We Go‘s Melanie Lynskey, End of Love‘s Mark Webber, and Lena Dunham in a film about family, evolving, fun little songs with hand claps, and so on. Here’s the trailer:

This is beautiful music to our ears!!!
Silver tongued actress Anna Kendrick has signed on to play the lead role of Catherine in Richard LaGravenese’s film adaptation of heart-wrenching off-broadway musical The Last Five Years!!
The play chronicles the five year relationship of novelist Jamie and aspiring actress Catherine, and the storytelling …
The 27-year-old actress looked stylishly chic in a floor-length frock for the John Russo shot front page while dishing about everything from her start in Hollywood to her hopes for the golden years.
Highlights from Miss Kendrick’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Manhattan!
On her start in Tinseltown:
“The first year in Los Angeles I was like, ‘What am I doing? Is this worth it?’ I could work as long as I could pay rent…. I remember working with a girl who told me, ‘Don’t worry about the money—do what you love and the money will be there,’” she recalls. “There’s not really anything you can do to force it.”
On the difference in life now that she’s famous:
“People ask how things are different, but to me they don’t really feel that different. Except at my brother’s wedding, when my extended family kept saying they wanted pictures with me—that was strange!”
On her plans for future roles:
“I’m not thinking, ‘In the fall I need to make this kind of movie.’ It’s more, ‘I want to make this recipe for Thanksgiving.’ I’m thinking about decorating my house for Christmas, and whipping out my Martha Stewart crafting crap.”
On where she sees herself at age 80:
“I want to be sharp and funny at 80. I want to be the next Betty White.” On:
Capping off the weekend with promotional efforts on the west coast, Anna Kendrick and Leslie Mann took over the spotlight at AMC CityWalk Stadium 19 at Universal Studios Hollywood on Sunday (August 5).
The two lovely ladies showed off their summertime stylish selves as they joined castmates and crew members for the Tinseltown premiere of their upcoming animated film “ParaNorman”.
As for Anna and Leslie’s new movie, “ParaNorman” tells the story of “a misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead taking on ghosts, zombies and grown-ups to save his town from a centuries-old curse.”
Directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell while co-starring Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Jeff Garlin, the family friendly flick is all set to hit theaters later this month on August 17th.
Thanks to Glee somehow turning youthful a cappella covers into something tolerated, and even purposely enjoyed by moms hoping to figure out how to download “Don’t Stop Believin’” on iTunes, there’s this now: Pitch Perfect, a film that appears to be a Disney Channel Original Movie but is actually a theatrical release that Anna Kendrick is for some reason using to body scrub away all her non-Twilight credibility. Here is the trailer:
Look, guys: singing Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” without the accompaniment of Lil’ Penny’s piano riff is suspect, but using the wrong Christopher Guest player as a judge is fucking criminal.
The “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” pals looked to be enjoying their time overseas as they made their way to GMTV studios.
During an interview with Movie Retriever, Anna confessed that “Scott Pilgrim” was a stretch for her artistically.
“I feel like working on this film was like being a part of live-action animation. So much of the film is composed in a really specific visual language. You do feel like you are doing choreography even with just your dialogue. It was really challenging.”
“You always felt like you understood the end product but you were, in some cases, a little blind, and you just had to trust that it doesn’t look goofy. You really did feel like you were being puppeteered. That was like nothing I had ever done before.”
“At times, it was really challenging, but it definitely exercised a muscle that you wouldn’t get to normally. You just felt like you really had to be focused and on the ball all the time because you had to get it right, the camera had to be right, a light didn’t fall… you felt like you really had to deliver. But I like being challenged like that.”
