Warner Bros. Pictures has just released the trailer for their upcoming comedy, The Intern, starring Academy Award winners Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables, The Dark Knight Rises) and Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, The Godfather: Part II). Check it out in the player below!

When we heard that ABC was bringing "The Muppets" back to primetime, it was hard to get a feel for the new show . . . even after they said it would be "more adult" with a "mockumentary" style like "The Office".
Well, ABC has released the first full-length trailer . . . and it looks AWESOME. And yes, there's definitely more grown-up content, including jokes about pot use, tasteful nudity, and interspecies relationships.
And we're not talking about the usual Kermit / Miss Piggy thing. Fozzie Bear has a human girlfriend, and her parents are NOT down with it.
(With all due respect to NBC's drama about someone having tattoos with clues to a crime . . . and Fox's "Frankenstein" cop show . . . this may be the first new show that already seems like it could be great.)
A bus carrying 47 people caught fire on the side of a highway near Newton, Massachusetts yesterday . . . then EXPLODED on live TV. The actual bus stayed intact, but the explosion blew out all the windows.
Luckily everyone was out by then, so no one got hurt.
The guy who sang "Louie Louie" has died at the age of 71. His name was Jack Ely, and he was an original member of The Kingsmen . . . the group that released the song in 1963.
There's no word on a cause of death, but he'd been sick for some time.
Interesting Fact: Part of the appeal of Jack's version was how INCOHERENT it was. At one point, the FBI conducted an investigation into whether the song was obscene. They found it to be, quote, "unintelligible at any speed."
Calbuco, a stratovolcano in southern Chile, began erupting Wednesday at 7pm local time. First spewing massive ash clouds then, at 10pm, erupting explosively as its fragile structure collapsed inwards. Here’s some of the stunning imagery and video. You can see it from space!
A video of a nurse freaking out when one of her patients stands up out of her wheelchair is blowing up online right now. According to the video, the girl woke up paralyzed from the waist down one day, and doctors couldn't figure out why.
Then her legs suddenly started working again 11 days later. So she surprised her favorite nurse by rolling up to her in her wheelchair . . . standing up . . . and giving her a huge hug.
ROBERT DOWNEY JR. got sober well over a decade ago, and scratched and clawed his way back to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world. So it's not surprising that he wants to leave his past in the past.
Unfortunately, the media doesn't want to let it go. Downey was in London doing press for the new "Avengers" movie, when the reporter started asking him about the dark times.
He kind of started playing along, but he got tired of it pretty quickly, saying, quote, "Are we promoting a movie?"
His handlers didn't like it either, and protested from off-camera. Ultimately, Downey said, "Bye", cut the interview short, and left.
The guy apologized, and Downey said, quote, "It's okay . . . You seem okay, it's just getting a little Diane Sawyer."
(Bob: Actually, I think he handled it very well!)
(Here's video. The uncomfortable stuff starts happening at the 3:57 mark, and he stands up to leave at 6:38.)
