'The Hangover Part II' trailer pulled from theaters

Here’s hoping the film lasts longer in theaters than the trailer did.

After one week on the big screen, "The Hangover Part II" trailer, which debuted in front of Summit Entertainment’s “Source Code” on April 1, has been temporarily pulled from theaters.

The reason? It could have to do with the last scene. Now, we’re not at liberty to describe said scene on this family-friendly blog, however, we can tell you this: “When a monkey nibbles on a wenus, it’s funny in any language.”

Bradley Cooper 'doing great' post-split, friend says

Bradley Cooper isn't suffering a love hangover following his recent split from Renée Zellweger. According to his pal Tom Arnold, the "Limitless" star is moving on quite nicely.

"He's doing great," Arnold tells Us Weekly of Cooper, who had been dating Zellweger since July 2009. "He's doing amazing."

Arnold befriended Cooper while filming the movie "Brother's Justice" several years ago, just before "The Hangover" turned the actor into a household name. "When we started, Bradley was the sixth guy on the call sheet," says the funnyman. "When we finished he was the biggest star in the world. But he's got his feet on the ground. He's a very sweet guy."

Meanwhile, Zellweger is getting by with a little help from her friends as well - she was spotted visiting pal Sandra Bullock in Manhattan over the weekend.

Bradley Cooper wants Tom Buchanan role in 'Gatsby'

Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan are already locked in for "The Great Gatsby," but there's one more actor dying to be a part of director Baz Luhrmann's upcoming 3-D spectacle: Bradley Cooper.

In a new interview with the New York Times, Cooper lobbies for the role of Tom Buchanan, the cocky blueblood husband of Gatsby's (DiCaprio) love interest, Daisy (Mulligan).

"To me, he's the best character in the book. He's so complicated," says the star of "The Hangover – Part II." "He's xenophobic, he's an alcoholic, but he also understands some profound stuff about class. Whoever plays it has to take a gentle hand, because it could so easily be stock, where he’s a rich jerk you don't identify with at all."

Bradley Cooper: Liam Neeson is the man

Liam Neeson, fresh from his gritty, tough guy performance in "Taken," is tackling a very different kind of role in the upcoming big-screen version of "The A-Team." Neeson's usual screen persona is as serious as a triple coronary bypass, and I'm not quite sure I see him as the light, devil-may-care leader of the group, "Hannibal Smith," the role made famous by the late George Peppard.

But Bradley Cooper, who plays "Face" in the film, vouches for his new on-screen boss.

"We're filming it right now, and he's fantastic. I think that people are going to love his Hannibal. He certainly raises everybody's game when you do a scene with him. He's an incredible actor."

But what exactly is the tone of this thing? Serious? Funny?

"It's everything, you know, it's like, at its best, if we succeed in this movie, it'll toe the line of being both, which I think is the goal."

So Neeson's hitting the comedy notes?

"He's hitting notes I've never even heard of. Yeah, he's that good."

I love it when a plan comes together...

The stalker and the producer

It's a old fable dating back to the days of ... well, fables. A strange woman who hunts her man like a lioness stalking its prey. The man who knows better than to be caught in her trap. And an ending that will make romantics everywhere tear-up happily. 

At least, that's what I'm guessing happens based on the trailer.

"All About Steve" is out in theaters today, starring Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper. The stars of the film talked with CNN recently about their new comedy. Check out what they had to say in today's Movie Pass:

Obsessed with Bradley Cooper

Obsession was on the minds of Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper at the "All About Steve" premiere Wednesday night in Hollywood. Bullock plays a woman who's obsessed by Cooper's character, a camerman (or photographer, as they preferred to be called) for the fictional TV news organization "CCN." Hmmm... what could that be modeled after?

But don't call her character's fixation creepy, says Bullock: “[She’s] not creepy - don't pass judgment - don't put the word creepy out there. She's annoying at the beginning, but at the end you [the audience] turn around and blame yourself for passing judgment . She was innocent and real rather than jaded and guarded and cool. She's just incredibly smart and kind.”

And why is she so obsessed? “All cameramen are hot. Like the one behind this one right now. If I wasn’t with my husband, whew!" she jokes. "Cameramen are like firemen – all have a level of hotness.” That brought a smile to the man behind the lens for our interview, Chris Audick.

Cooper is learning more and more about obsession these days, as in America's obsession with celebrity gossip.  His dating exploits (Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger are among the ladies with whom he's been linked) are being read about in super market check-out aisles around the country. “I don't read it," he says, "But I get emails from friends saying 'Whoa! Man, what the hell is happening?' And they all talk like that [does frat-boy voice] 'Hey man!'" So you take it with a grain of salt? "Oh yeah!”
