‘Movie 43′: Superheroes, Drunk Swimming, and Elizabeth Banks — EXCLUSIVE PICS

Movie 43: Josh Duhamel

You can’t say that the upcoming anthology film Movie 43 doesn’t value versatility. As we learned from the trailer, the varying premises of its dozen or so separate comedy vignettes range from a flirtatious game of Truth or Dare gone terribly awry (a sketch featuring Halle Berry and Stephen Merchant), to the seizure of and attempt to bridle a hostile leprechaun (starring Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott), to a basketball coach’s (Terrence Howard) invocation of racial stereotypes to inspire his team to victory, to a couple of parents’ (Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber) trying to reproduce an “authentic” high school experience for their home schooled son. But many of the film’s sketches remain largely mysterious.

Below are three new, exclusive images from Movie 43, featuring stars Kristen Bell, Justin Long, Josh Duhamel, and Elizabeth Banks. We might not know exactly what these actors’ sketches have in store, but we can tell the following: Bell and Long play superheroes (Supergirl and Robin, respectively) who are apparently both participants a speed dating venue. Duhamel’s character is, ostensibly, some sort of hard-partying frat boy type, and one with ready access to a pool. And Banks… well, she just looks kind of mortified. With the sort of attitude that Movie 43 seems to have, the source of this horror could be quite extreme.

Check out the exclusive images below. Movie 43 hits theaters Jan. 25.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
