Rebecca Hall & Dan Stevens in Official Trailer for Drama 'Permission'

"Aren't you curious? You must be..." Good Deed Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for the indie romantic drama Permission, from director Brian Crano. The film stars Rebecca Hall and Dan Stevens as a couple on the brink of getting engaged. But just before this happens, they both realize they should sleep with other people before, and attempt to get the permission necessary to do this. Obviously this is a movie for adults, and a perfectly quirky Valentine's Day movie, if that's your thing. Also starring Gina Gershon, Francois Arnaud, David Joseph Craig, Morgan Spector, and Jason Sudeikis. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, but hasn't had much buzz since then. Check it out below if you're interested. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Brian Crano's Permission, direct from YouTube:

Tiffany Haddish on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

Tiffany Haddish on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See
After a subpar outing last week, Saturday Night Live produced what might have been its best episode of Season 43 this time around. A lot of that had to do with host Tiffany Haddish, who brought energy and excitement to each sketch. Even when the material wasn't terribly strong (especially post-"Weekend Update"), Haddish did her damnedest to keep things afloat.

Still, the hits far outweighed the misses this week. It's hard not to include sketches that involved surprise cameos from former cast members (Jason Sudeikis reprising his Joe Biden impression

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: First-Time Host Tiffany Haddish Proves She Truly is Ready
Is it time? Because it feels like it’s time. Time for the official campaign for Tiffany Haddish’s Oscar nomination to begin, and what better place to begin than with a hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live?”

Tiffany Haddish’s performance in this year’s “Girls Trip” is absolutely worthy of Oscar attention — and her work on “The Carmichael Show” as well as her stand-up special “She Ready” definitely deserve praise too — and hosting “Saturday Night Live” is as declarative a statement as they come. Especially as the first African-American female stand-up comedian (yeah, neither Whoopi Goldberg nor Wanda Sykes have done this) to host in the series’ 43 seasons.

Host: Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish is just infectious positivity in comedy form, which is kind of necessary considering there’s still a question of what this season of “Saturday Night Live” wants to be outside of “a reminder that everything in the world is bonkers-slash-horrifying.

The newspaper reports that Balazs offered to take the group on a tour, and cites witnesses who allege that when Anka climbed a ladder to an upstairs room, Balazs slipped a hand under her dress and grabbed her crotch.

“I witnessed behavior by Andre Balazs that was inappropriate and offensive,” Day's wife, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, also tells the Times.

The newspaper reports that Bateman later confronted Balazs, and spit gum in his face, before the couple quickly exited the hotel.

If You're a Fan of the Tiny-House Trend, You'll Love Matt Damon's New Movie

Have you ever wished that Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was a drama instead of a fun, family comedy? Well, you're in luck. Downsizing stars Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig as a middle-class couple who are offered the opportunity to "downsize" their lives, literally, after the technology to shrink human beings down to a few inches tall is invented. The concept alone is enough to make it one of Fall's most anticipated new movies, not to mention the all-star cast (which also includes Jason Sudeikis, Christoph Waltz, and Hong Chau). Suffice it to say, the tiny-house trend is shook. Watch the latest trailer above before Downsizing hits theaters on Dec. 25.

Producer of ‘Driven’ Reminisces About Filming in Hurricane-Torn Puerto Rico (Exclusive)
While at the Afm, London-based Embankment Films is kicking off sales on Nick Hamm’s “Driven,” an 1970s action-packed film with Jason Sudeikis and Lee Pace that wrapped shooting Nov. 2.

The film is inspired by the true story of an FBI operation that was conceived to bring down John DeLorean, the maverick auto executive who launches the DeLorean but was brought down in a drug scandal.

Piers Tempest, who is producing the film with Luillo Ruiz, told Variety that filming “Driven” turned out to be apocalyptic because it shot in Puerto Rico in between two hurricanes, Irma and Maria.

“Puerto Rico had not have a hurricane for eight years so I thought it would Ok. But first, Hurricane Irma came on during last week of pre-production and we had to fly back the non-resident crew members,” said Tempest.

Then, during the last week of shoot, when “category-5 Hurricane Maria hit, it really

Third Trailer for Alexander Payne's Human Shrinking Film 'Downsizing'

"Open your eyes. The world is filled with things to see." Paramount has debuted another official trailer for Alexander Payne's Downsizing, which has been playing at film festivals over the past few months. This social satire from Payne is a hugely ambitious film where the Norwegians have invented a method to shrink humans down to a very small size - about 4 inches. The story follows Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig as a married couple who decide to get the procedure in order to live a happier, better life in a tiny city – and save the environment while at it. The cast includes Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern, Jason Sudeikis, Neil Patrick Harris, Udo Kier, Kerri Kenney, and Hong Chau. If you're curious about it, or if you think it's a cool concept, I recommend seeing this. But it's probably not what you're expecting. Still, it's fun (at times). Here's the
