Tom Petty passed away at the age of 66 today after going into cardiac arrest late Sunday night. Petty was one of the last great surviving songwriters of our time and the world is mourning right now, with many taking to social media to pay tribute to Petty. It's hard to think of a time when Tom Petty wasn't cool, he was always like the really awesome uncle that you had, but never got to hang out with. His voice spoke to generations; helping people mend broken hearts as teenagers all the way to dealing with mortality later in life.
Johnny Cash once told the humble Petty that, "You're a good man to ride the river with," something that Petty never took for granted. Cash then paid ultimate tribute by covering "I Won't Break Down" and turning it into his own song. It doesn't get much better than that, but for Thomas Earl Petty, »

"Operation Who's-Your-Daddy - the top mission is finding dad." Warner Bros has debuted a new trailer for the comedy titled Father Figures, formerly known Bastards, starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms as fraternal twin brothers who go on a search for their father when their mother reveals she doesn't know who he really is. This was actually set to be released in January, but the studio pulled it and delayed it all the way until Christmas this year, giving it a new title in the meantime. Unfortunately it still doesn't look any better. Also starring Katie Aselton, J.K. Simmons, Terry Bradshaw, Glenn Close, Ving Rhames, Ryan Cartwright, Katt Williams, Retta and Bill Irwin. Not really worth a watch, but have a look if you wish. Here's the new official trailer for Lawrence Sher's Father Figures, direct from WB's YouTube: You can still watch the original trailer for Bastards here, »

Perhaps you haven't heard of Father Figures? That's because when the first trailer dropped more than a year ago, it was called Bastards. The team behind this comedy wised up, changing the title and giving you some time to forget. Now, they have cobbled together a new trailer, for better or worse, and here we are.
Arriving from Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment, the latest footage from Father Figures promises a Christmas comedy that will bring you back home. The movie opens on December 22, and it stars two heavy weights in the genre who've not been so busy lately. The movie teams the great Ed Helms with the always welcome Owen Wilson for the right amount of charm. It doesn't really matter how good or bad the script is, these guys will probably carry the material pretty far on their own.
Wilson and Helms play Kyle and Peter Reynolds, brothers »

“Father Figures” is another addition to the stable of raunchy studio comedies that made stars Owen Wilson and Ed Helms’ names, and caps off a year wherein Wilson is also looking for awards recognition in the weepie “Wonder.”
A new trailer has arrived for the Warner Bros. comedy which marks the directorial debut of “The Hangover” cinematographer Lawrence Sher — here’s hoping that this film can recapture some of that first film’s gonzo charm and less of the seedy and misogynist humor of the following films in that franchise.
