Cameron Diaz stars as Malkina, a dangerous and brilliant sociopath whose machinations have shocking consequences and Penélope Cruz stars as Laura, the Counselor’s fiancé, who becomes an unwitting player in his dark dealings in this brand new clip from director Ridley Scott’s, The Counselor. Take a look below:
Disney isn’t the only movie studio shuffling around its release dates. Sony has announced a major shift in the debut of its upcoming comedy, Sex Tape.
The flick, which stars Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Jack Black, has been having some production problems in recent weeks. The movie’s title has allegedly been changed from “Sex Tape” to Basic Math, and was recently denied $55,000 from Columbia Pictures. It also was denied a rental request from Parker Middle School in Reading, Mass. due to the sex tape-centric title and plot.
Now “Sex Tape” — or “Basic Math,” if that title sticks — is slated for a July 18 release date instead of its original July 2, 2014 one. In some good news for the movie, Rob Lowe recently joined the cast. Directed by “Bad Teacher’s” Jake Kasdan, Sex Tape tells the story of a married couple (“Bad Teacher” stars Diaz and Segel) who wake up in the morning to discover the sex tape they made has gone missing.

Cameron Diaz is ready to get “Bad” again. The actress has signed on as a producer for CBS’s series adaptation of her 2011 film Bad Teacher, which starred Diaz as Elizabeth Halsey, an individual familiar with the move told TheWrap on Thursday.
The series will star Fringe actress Ari Graynor as Meredith Davis, a hot, confident, unapologetic trophy wife who takes a job at a middle school to meet a new man after her husband leaves her without a dime. Sex and the City alum Kristin Davis will play Meredith’s nemesis Ginny, a math teacher, choir director and faculty president.
Bad Teacher is being produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with Mosaic Media Group. “My Name Is Earl” and “Community” veteran Hilary Winston is executive-producing. Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who were behind the film, are executive-producing as well, along with Jimmy Miller, Sam Hansen and Michael Lasker.
The series will premiere mid-season. (Source)
The Counselor is Cormac McCarthy’s new screenplay that’s directed by the legendary Ridley Scott and features an all-star cast including Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. McCarthy is responsible for some stunning books including No Country For Old Men and The Road, both of which have hit the big screen with impressive success and this new one is highly anticipated and featured in our ‘must-see’ films for the Autumn.
In this, his first straight to screen script, the story-line focuses around Fassbender’s character who’s a lawyer and get in too deep with drug trafficking and then, we believe, it all starts to go very wrong. This brand new clip shows Cameron Diaz with cold intent and a dead straight stare. She looks hard and focused here, I’m also glad that the recent clips don’t give too much away but give you a snippet of the world we’re delving into:
