“Why are people still interested in me?” That was Shirley MacLaine’s modest response to learning how much fans enjoyed her 2014 Role Recall interview with Yahoo Movies. As for her enduring popularity, let’s begin with her legacy. A certifiable screen icon, MacLaine’s long, successful career launched in 1955 with the Alfred Hitchcock film The Trouble With Harry, includes classics like The Apartment and Being There, and features six Oscar nominations, with one win for Terms of Endearment. Six decades later, the 82-year-old continues to release challenging, interesting films.
“Love The Coopers” follows the Cooper clan as four generations of extended family come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration. As the evening unfolds, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday.
Case in point: the exclusive new trailer (above) for the family comedy Love the Coopers whose epic cast includes Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Olivia Wilde, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, Marisa Tomei, Ed Helms, Alan Arkin, and June Squibb. If Love the Coopers reminds you of other festive movies with big ensembles, like Garry Marshall’s Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve, that’s OK says director Jessie Nelson, who also wrote and directed the Oscar-nominated 2001 drama I Am Sam.
In their next smoke-filled adventure, Ted (voiced by writer-director Seth MacFarlane) declares to thunder-buddy-for-life John Bennett (Wahlberg) that he and his human girlfriend Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) want to have a baby.
