Okay.  So for those of you who aren’t middle-aged white people wallowing in angst, this is the cover to the latest Colplay album called Ghost Stories.  I love Coldplay.  Love the angst.  Super white.  Embrace who you are, and I’m the dude who loves Coldplay.  Last night I sat down to listen to the latest album (possibly while assembling a LEGO structure – DO NOT JUDGE ME!) and hit “Play”.

Trailer Time: This is Where I Leave You (2014)

This was on my Most Anticipated of 2014 list as a dark horse candidate, primarily because of the strength of the source material (Jonathan Tropper’s novel) and the HUGE, talented cast.  Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Timothy Olyphant, Connie Britton, Corey Stoll and Dax Shepherd among others.  Check out the trailer above and the synopsis below.  This is Where I Leave You opens in theaters on September 12, 2014.

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide— driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
