Seth Rogen & Charlize Theron in First Trailer for Comedy 'Long Shot'

"We have a situation…" Lionsgate has debuted the first official trailer for the summer comedy Long Shot, formerly known as Flarsky, the latest film from director Jonathan Levine (The Wackness, 50/50, Warm Bodies, The Night Before).

‘Long Shot’ Trailer: Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron Make an Unlikely Pair

Director Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies) is back with a new Seth Rogen/Charlize Theron comedy called Long Shot. If that title doesn’t sound familiar, you may recognize it from its earlier (and arguably more memorable) title: Flarsky. The title was changed to signify that it wasn’t primarily the story of Rogen’s character, Fred Flarsky, but more of a two-hander where Theron’s character is equally as important. “I’m only half the story,” Rogen explained. Check out the first Long Shot trailer...

The Seth Rogen/Charlize Theron Comedy ‘Flarsky’ Has a New Title, Seth Rogen Explains The Change [Updated]

Update: On Twitter, Rogen has explained the reason for the title change. Our original article follows, and you can read his explanation below. For a long time, director Jonathan Levine‘s new movie was going by its original title: Flarsky. And then someone at Lionsgate realized that calling a film Flarsky is an invitation to make no money at the box office because it sounds like an off-brand medicinal soda only available in three states, so they’ve changed it. Flarsky is dead. Meet Long Shot. ...

‘Snatched’ Review: The Great Goldie Hawn is Wasted in This Lazy Comedy

The world of comedy has changed vastly since Goldie Hawn’s last big-screen appearance in The Banger Sisters in 2002. Largely, comedy has progressed in the last 15 years, but Hawn’s return is not the banner occasion she deserves. Snatched, in which she plays the neurotic mother of a selfish wild child played by Amy Schumer, is mostly lazy and turgid. There are laughs stranded throughout, amidst a vast ocean of squandered potential. Schumer, playing a scattershot version of the drunk-girl arch...
