Wanderlust Trailer: Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd’s Journey

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd star in Wanderlust as a couple who are finding life at the moment a bit boring. They leave their suburban conclave and head out on the road in an effort to find the spice of life. When they arrive on a commune and have to spend the night, they discover all the excitement they bargained for and more. The film has released a new TV spot taking us further into the zaniness that is Wanderlust.

The new clip also gives us our first look at Justin Theroux’s character who gives Rudd a bit of advice that is as alarming as it is funny.

Wanderlust lands in theaters February 24 and also stars Malin Akerman, Lauren Ambrose and Alan Alda.

Screen Actors Guild Award Winners: The Help Sweeps!

The Screen Actors Guild Awards give actors a chance to honor their peers in a ceremony that quite often (historically) sheds light on who will go home with the coveted Academy Awards next month.

If that’s the case, Oscar night could be big for The Help cast.

Recognized for their work as an ensemble, the top honor of the night at Sunday’s 2012 SAG Awards. Viola Davis took home the award for Best Actress and Octavia Spencer won Best Supporting Actress.

Basically, it was a clean sweep for The Help, going 3/3 in categories where it was nominated. The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin was Best Actor and Christopher Plummer won Best Supporting Actor for Beginners.

The Grey Wins Box Office Battle

Liam Neeson is still a box office champion. After The A-Team, Unknown and Taken all opened at number one, his The Grey has done so as well, landing in first place at the weekend box office. The film banked $20 million in its first week of release (check out our The Grey review and exclusive Neeson video interview).

The Grey: Liam Neeson
Last week’s number one flick, Underworld Awakening, slipped to second. The return of Kate Beckinsale as Selene added another $12.5 million to its total of $45.1 million. The second of three new entries at the movies this past weekend, One for the Money, had to settle for a third place finish. Katherine Heigl’s latest earned $11.8 million. Does that guarantee another chapter in the Stephanie Plum literary saga that has 18 books? Time will tell.

Fourth place belongs to Red Tails, George Lucas’ tale of the Tuskegee airmen and their heroic efforts during World War II. The film sold $10.4 million in its second week of release.

Rounding out the top five of box office winners was the third new film of the weekend, Man on a Ledge. The Sam Worthington starring flick disappointed in its first week of release, earning only $8.3 million.

What was interesting to note in this first box office weekend after the Oscar nominations were announced is the charge up the charts that Best Picture nominees Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close ($7.1 million) and The Descendants ($6.6 million) did by finishing at sixth and seventh, respectively.

Box office top 10:

1. The Grey, $20 million
2. Underworld: Awakening, $12.5 million
3. One for the Money, $11.8 million
4. Red Tails, $10.4 million
5. Man on a Ledge, $8.3 million
6. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, $7.1 million
7. The Descendants, $6.6 million
8. Contraband, $6.5 million
9. Beauty and the Beast, $5.3 million
10. Haywire, $4 million
