Based on the iconic children’s series by Beatrix Potter, Peter Rabbit centers on the titular character, a self-confident and mischievous rabbit (Corden) who is determined to claim victory over the animal hating Mr. McGregor (Domnhnall Gleeson). McGregor is vying for the affections of his neighbor Bea (Rose Byrne), and it’s up to Peter and his siblings (voices of Margot Robbie, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki) to stop the coupling from coming to fruition. Will Gluck, who helmed the 2014 feature Annie, directs.
“I guess when he does mess up and make a mistake, he rectifies it in the best way possible,” said Corden. “And that I think is the best message for the film really which is everyone is going to make mistakes, all the time, all of us, whoever you are, there are screw ups coming your way. But what’s important is how you deal with those mistakes and who you are in those mistakes and that you learn from them and try not to make them again.”

Available Friday on DVD and Blu-ray, FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS is an R-rated romantic comedy about a pair of friends who mistakenly believe that sex without emotional involvement is a viable long-term plan. Directed by WILL GLUCK (EASY A), the cast includes MILA KUNIS, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, PATRICIA CLARKSON, JENNA ELFMAN, BRIAN GREENBERG, WOODY HARRELSON and ANDY SAMBERG.
A former child star who struck it big with the ultimate boy band, ‘NSYNC, before hitting the stadium circuit as a solo singer, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE has spent the last couple of years reinventing himself as a movie star. Proving to be as adept at being a leading man as he is a supporting player, he’s appeared in such films as ALPHA DOG, THE SOCIAL NETWORK and BAD TEACHER. During our recent interview, he talked about doing a romantic comedy and why the R rating was important to him. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
The Los Angeles set comedy Friends with Benefits centers on two buddies (Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis) who decide that sex without love is a rather safe bet. Unfortunately, the whole “friends with benefits” theory has its share of complications, especially when feelings enter the equation.
“We sat around and verbalized the scenes for two months,” said Kunis, who was last seen in Black Swan. “So we would just do dialogue upon dialogue of what we thought was funny.”
