Ashby stars Mickey Rourke and Nat Wolff with Emma having a supporting role. Awkward Ed Wallis (Nat Wolff) needs help fitting in and turns to his neighbor Ashby Holt (Mickey Rourke) for help. Ashby’s unforgiving brand of tough love soon tests their friendship, and it hardly helps when Ed learns that Ashby is a former CIA assassin. The film will make its debut at the Tribeca film festival in New York in April so hopefully soon will see a theatrical release (most likely limited).

“Love is a deadly disease.” If that sounds crazy to you, it’s probably because you don’t live in the dystopian world of Emma Roberts‘ Delirium, in which hearts are never meant to be broken. In fact, thanks to a nifty government-regulated shot, they can’t be.
TVLine has an exclusive first look at the trailer for Delirium, in which 17-year-old Lena (Roberts) is excited to receive the miracle cure for Deliria — or “love,” as it’s known to us — until a chance meeting with police officer Alex (The Secret Life of the American Teenager‘s Daren Kagasoff) changes the course of her future.
Originally filmed as a pilot for Fox, Delirium was not picked up to series, but due to the popularity of Lauren Oliver’s book trilogy – upon which Delirium is based – WIGS and Hulu have teamed up to bring the pilot to the web for a limited time. The pilot was also directed WIGS co-founder Rodrigo Garcia.
Beginning Friday, June 20, the pilot will be available for streaming in the WIGS section of Hulu for 30 days.
Delirium also stars Billy Campbell (Helix) as Thomas Fineman, Michael Michele (Gossip Girl) as Elyse Hargrove, Jeanine Mason (Bunheads) as Hana Tate, Corey Reynolds (The Closer) as Tack and Gregg Sulkin (Faking It) as Julian Fineman.
Adult World is released today (June 10th) on Blu-ray/DVD in the US! If you can go get yourself a copy!

A floundering college graduate reluctantly takes a job at an upstate New York sex shop while pursuing an opportunity that could help to launch her career as a poet. Wide-eyed Amy (Emma Roberts) may have graduated from college, but lately life seems to be passing her by. An aspiring poet, she still lives with her parents, and longs for independence. In order to earn a paycheck, Amy goes to work at a local sex shop owned by a spirited older couple. With flamboyant transvestite Rubio and charming local boy Alex on staff, life around the store is rarely dull. Still, Amy can’t help but feeling like the future has something better in store for her, and she sets out to land an apprenticeship with notoriously withdrawn writer Rat Billings (John Cusack). Meanwhile, inspiration seems to come from the last place Amy ever expected as her professional relationship with Alex takes a surprise turn toward the romantic.
