Her teacher, Bonnie (Jenny Slate), quickly realizes Mary is a mathematical genius and tells Frank. She and the principal tell Frank his niece would be better off at a school for gifted youngsters. Frank refuses, saying he promised his sister he would give Mary a normal life.
When Frank‘s mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) finds out, she disagrees with Frank and decides to petition the court to get custody of Mary. Frank, who loves Mary deeply and wants to do what’s best for her, fights to retain his rights to raise his little niece.

Toronto’s own Michael Cera is back in town. While on a break filming Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin‘s directorial debut Molly’s Game, alongside the likes of Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba and Kevin Costner, he made time today to promote his work in upcoming Animated Feature THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE. The Blockbuster has him voicing the titular character’s sidekick Robin.
The 28-year-old known best for his acclaimed work on Series Arrested Development and Films like Superbad, Juno, This is the End, Sausage Party and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, did the rounds in the City pretaping several interviews in advance of the Film’s release next week.
See a Trailer below:
While we’ve met Cera a few times before, we never got the Selfie until today. He was more than nice to stop in the cold and check-in to see how I was doing.
This looks absolutely adorable! Ever since I saw the Trailer for THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS last fall, it’s been on my mind. What makes it unique is that it captures all the adorable “ham” things about our pets that we love, answering the undying question, “What do our pets do when we’re out at work??!?”. Anyone who’s ever owned a pet will relate right away when seeing this.
For their fifth fully-animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day.
Comedy superstars Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet and Kevin Hart make their animated feature-film debuts in The Secret Life of Pets, which co-stars Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy produce the film directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2), co-directed by Yarrow Cheney and written by Brian Lynch and Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio.
See the brand new Trailer!

I’ve seen it and loved it. Many of you might remember Funnywoman Jenny Slate from Parks & Recreation or her Stand-up Comedy, but the former Saturday Night Live Alumni is doing it on her own terms now. Her latest Film, Obvious Child, directed and written by Gillian Robespierre, is sure to win your heart with its pure wit, charm and cuteness.
The Comedy centers around a young Woman named Donna whom after a drunken night finds herself pregnant with Max‘s (Jake Lacy) baby. Unable to bring herself to tell him, he continues trying to court her, which complicates matters because he has many of the attributes she finds desirable in a Partner. She worries her revealing her pregnancy will change things.
Slate after a grueling weekend stranded in Dallas, made her way to Toronto today and did a round of Press on the Morning Show Circuit with visits to KISS 92.5, CP24 Breakfast, CITY‘s Breakfast Television and more! Unfortunately a majority of her interviews scheduled for the afternoon were cancelled due to exhaustion, but she still made time for Fans tonight at a special Advance Screening of Obvious Child. The Actress also walked the Red Carpet last night at the MuchMusic Video Awards and reportedly is smitten by Prime Ministerial Candidate Justin Trudeau, whom she ran-into at Breakfast Television!
I caught-up with Slate at a taping earlier, and despite being in a rush she made a quick exception to snap a Photo. She’s even bubblier and cuter than imagined! And she’s in-love reportedly with my Billy too!
