As reported by Variety, Warner Bros. has teamed up with MGM for the reboot of Tomb Raider. After finding success with Angelina Jolie in two films (2001, 2003), the franchise took a turn when the video games started getting unfavorable reviews. The film series was shelved until this deal was struck, and the company has hired Evan Daugherty (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divergent) to write the script.

The official trailer for Kristen Wiig’s new film was released this week, in which she’s an Oprah wannabe who hits it big in the lottery. She then uses the money to stat her own, awkward talk show in which she talks about…herself. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay produce the film, which also stars James Marsden, Linda Cardellini, and Joan Cusack. The film is set to release May 8th. Video courtesy of MovieClips Trailers.
