Identity Thief Latest Clip

Identity Thief is one of the movies not to miss this week as Jason Bateman teams up with Melissa McCarthy for the first time.

The movie has already enjoyed two spells at the top of the U.S. box office and now it sees success in the UK is only just around the corner.

And we have a great new clip for you to check out ahead of the release on Friday:

The movie sees Bateman reunite with director Seth Gordon for the first time since Horrible Bosses.

This is the first big screen outing for Gordon since the success of Horrible Bosses having stepped back into TV with Breaking In.

Bateman take on the role of regular guy Sandy Patterson who is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he’ll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy.

There’s only one glitch: the ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads ‘Sandy Bigelow Patterson’. and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S.

With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life.

And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

Identity Thief is released 22nd March.

The Change Up Clips

Ryan Reynolds leaves the superhero movie behind and returns to comedy with his new movie The Change Up – which sees him star alongside Jason Bateman.

Growing up together, Mitch (Reynolds) and Dave (Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they’ve slowly drifted apart.

While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked.

To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm.

To Dave, living Mitch’s stress free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true.

Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave’s worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other’s bodies and proceed to freak the &*#@ out.

Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each other’s lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed.

The Change Up is release 16th September. Take a look at some clips from the movie:

Horrible Bosses Clips

For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust.

Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently.

There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.

Directed by Seth Gordon the movie boasts an all star cast that includes Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell.
