After a red band teaser, the first full-length trailer for American Reunion has arrived. It seems simple enough, setting up the American Pie gang returning for a one-night celebration. I know how tame things have to be for an all-audiences preview, but there aren’t many laughs to be found below and the only big plot point seems to be the possible relationship with Eugene Levy and Jennifer Coolidge. I hope this one extends beyond how boring they perceive married life to be, but we’ll see.
Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Seann William Scott, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari, Shannon Elizabeth, Tara Reid and Natasha Lyonne all return in the film directed by Harold and Kumar creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. Check out this new trailer below that a reader sent in.
In the comedy American Reunion, all the American Pie characters we met a little more than a decade ago are returning to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn’t and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim and Michelle married while Kevin and Vicky said goodbye. Oz and Heather grew apart, but Finch still longs for Stifler’s mom. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about—and get inspired by—the hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend.
American Reunion hits on April 6th, 2012.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
