Who’d You Rather? The Most–and Least–Dateable Movie Characters of 2014

Fault_in_Our_Stars_Augustus_WatersOf course it’s vital to have a real life filled with love and warmth, but there’s no harm in indulging in big-screen fantasies too, right? Of the many potential crushes coming your way in theaters this year, here are the most and least dateable characters on screens in 2014.

Most: Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars (6/6)

Don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day? Pick up a copy of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, because a night in with Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) will absolutely do. Not only is Gus tall and handsome, he is also thoughtful, always putting Hazel (Shailene Woodley) first not because he feels obligated to but because he genuinely wants to. Everyone should experience something as touching and powerful as Gus and Hazel’s “little infinity.”

10 Unforgettable Awkward Movie Moments

That_Awkward_MomentAccording to That Awkward Moment, there’s a point in a relationship when someone busts out “The So.” One party kicks off the conversation with “so …” and then follows it up with a question that will determine the fate of the relationship – where is this going, what are we doing, etc. We can’t help you avoid “The So” or stop you from tripping and falling, pressing send on an e-mail prematurely or getting caught up in a big fat lie, but at least for the next few minutes you can steer clear of any self-created misunderstandings by indulging in this string of big-screen mishaps that rival the awkwardness of “The So.”

Dress Shopping in Bridesmaids

Doing your business all over expensive bridesmaid dresses is devastating no matter what the circumstances, but what really makes the post-Brazilian feast calamity in Bridesmaids even more effective is the build-up. At first the schvitzing, fidgeting and tummy rumbling seems harmless, especially when you’re discussing whether or not to buy a Fritz Bernaise, but the second one bridesmaid can’t hold it in any longer, it’s a chain reaction of mind-blowingly unladylike incidents until poor Lillian is in the middle of the street, pooping her high-end wedding dress. The two-year-old Lady JuJu gown was too poofy anyway.

Interview: That Awkward Moment’s Imogen Poots

Imogen_Poots_That_Awkward_MomentSo … according to the movie That Awkward Moment, there’s this point in a relationship called “The So” during which someone turns to you and says, “So …” and follows it up by asking a relationship defining question like, “Where is this going” or “What are we doing?” That absolutely can be an uncomfortable scenario, but for ladies who really know how to pick them, like Imogen Poot’s Ellie, the awkwardness doesn’t stop there.  In That Awkward MomentZac EfronMiles Teller and Michael B. Jordan play a trio of friends who make a pact to indulge in the single life together to help take Mikey’s mind off his divorce. However, shortly after making that pact, Jason spots Ellie. He may initially peg her as yet another brief fling, but soon realizes he can’t tear himself away. No one has ever had this effect on him and he’s determined to learn more – even if it means making quite a few awkward mistakes in the process.

In honor of That Awkward Moment’s January 31st release, Poots hit the New York City press circuit and sat down with Collider to reveal which of her co-stars held doors for her, the one who’s most like his character and who can turn on the charm via improvisation. Read about all of that as well as Poots’ least favorite pickup line, the key to Gramercy Park, her excitement to work with Josh Boone on his upcoming feature, Pretenders, and loads more in the interview below.

Interview: That Awkward Moment’s Zac Efron, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Imogen Poots & Tom Gormican

That_Awkward_MomentRemember that time Miles Teller tried to hold Michael B. Jordan’s hand and then Zac Efron got within kissing distance of Teller? Now that was an awkward moment!

In their latest film, That Awkward Moment, Efron, Teller and Jordan star as Jason, Daniel and Mikey, respectively. Jason enjoys his quick flings, Daniel’s got a good thing going with his wing-woman, Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis), and Mikey “checked the boxes” and is enjoying the married life – until he’s not.

When Mikey’s wife suddenly demands a divorce, Jason and Daniel step in to make it all better by making a pact to stay single and play the field together. Trouble is, that’s when Jason spots Ellie (Imogen Poots) at the end of a bar and for the first time in his life, one night might not be enough.

Interview: That Awkward Moment’s Miles Teller

that-awkward-moment-poster-miles-teller-405x600Perhaps you missed Rabbit Hole, but between Footloose21 & OverThe Spectacular Now, all the buzz coming out of Sundance for Whiplash and the fact that he’s clearly earned himself a place in the incessant blockbuster rumor mill, it’s obvious that Miles Teller is one to watch.In his latest release, That Awkward Moment, Teller steps in as Daniel, a 20-something living in New York City who’s busy at work by day and picking up ladies at night. When Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) gets hit with a divorce, Daniel and Jason (Zac Efron) decide it’s time to embrace the single life together. However, it’s easier said than done because when Daniel starts to fall for his wing-woman, Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis), he’s genuinely thrilled to start the relationship, but just can’t build up the nerve to tell his friends.

With That Awkward Moment heading towards its January 31st wide release, Collider got the chance to sit down with Teller and discuss how the film has made him an honorary love guru. Check out Teller’s dating advice as well as what he told us about his preparation process, the challenge of establishing a comedic rhythm, his audition for Star Wars: Episode VII, potentially beefing up for Fantastic Four, his thoughts on the final book of the Divergent trilogy and much more in the interview below.

The Best – and Worst – Movie Trailers of the Week

HoursPersonally, Anchorman was an acquired taste. The film wasn’t laugh-out-loud funny the first time around, but during repeat viewings, I’m watching the whole thing through with a silly grin on my face. Hopefully that’ll be the case with Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues because, at the moment, the jokes featured in the new trailer aren’t all that funny. However, Brick’s green-screen mishap at the end certainly is and that gag was instrumental in keeping the sequel’s new promo well out of the bottom three this week.

The Best Stuff

1. Hours

The Hurricane Katrina opening functions as a highly effective attention grabber, but from there, the new trailer for Hours has absolutely no trouble pushing that familiar context into the background and letting the core narrative take over. This is an expertly edited piece that clearly presents the stakes, but rarely the answers, leaving you desperate to know how Paul Walker solves the problem.
