Meet The Quay Brothers, Christopher Nolan’s Favorite Filmmakers And The Subjects Of His New Documentary
Stephen and Timothy Quay are identical twins who finish each other’s sentences and make eerie stop-motion films out of dolls and ephemera they find at flea markets. While their work remains both literally and figuratively obscure to many, their uncanny puppetry and hand-hewn style have trickled …Movies
Steve Carell Will Replace Bruce Willis In A Woody Allen Movie, Which Sounds Like A Hollywood Mad Lib
Earlier this week, Bruce Willis announced that he was leaving the ensemble cast of Woody Allen’s new film due to a conflict with his upcoming appearance in the Broadway adaption of Stephen King’s Misery. Today, the day has been saved (or at least the production schedule of the film has been saved), …Movies
Owen Wilson was on the Nerdist podcast this week, and the interview was fine, if unexceptional (Mike Ryan’s print interview was actually more engaging). However, during the course of the conversation, the topic turned to Caddyshack, which was when Chris Hardwick brought up the subject of the above …Bill Murray
Kudos for Paul Weitz for recognizing that a foul-mouthed Lily Tomlin vehicle is definitely something that should exist. On that we’re in total agreement. I just wish it would exist better. In Grandma, Tomlin plays a tell-it-like-it-is, take-no-prisoners tough old broad, an aging sixties feminist poet …Lily Tomlin
Just in time for this season’s final episode of Hannibal to air, Variety is reporting that series star Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to play a villain role in Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie. Attention should be paid to the word “early” as no offer has — as of yet — been made to the actor.
With NBC’s …Mads Mikkelsen
The only thing funnier to me than Jared Leto’s method acting is how hard WB is trying to sell Jared Leto’s method acting on Suicide Squad (which doesn’t open for another year). We’ve already heard about him giving a rat to Margot Robbie (who’s playing Harley Quinn) and a “dead hog” to the cast and …Jared Leto
Eddie Redmayne famously stuck it to me by winning best actor last year for playing Stephen Hawking in a role that, according to acting legend, may have permanently altered his spine. Just in time for awards season, Redmayne will be back in The Danish Girl, from The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper. …Eddie Redmayne
Baby Showers have always seemed slightly terrifying to me, and now they’re set to become even more horrific, thanks to upcoming sci-fi horror-comedy, The Shower.
The Shower, which is set to star Anne Hathaway, is being described as This is the End or Attack the Block meets Bridesmaids. Hey, we already …Anne Hathaway

This week on the Frotcast, we talk about We Are Your Friends (my review), which is not only a movie coming out this week, but the Frotcast’s new motto. We’re joined by video game champion/comedian/podcaster/documentarian …Suge Knight
When asked about her body, Ronda Rousey famously said, “If people say that my body looks masculine, or something like that. I’m just like, ‘Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f*cking millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine.’ I think it’s femininely bad-ass as f*ck …Ronda Rousey
Everyone flipped out when two of the internet’s most discussed blondes, Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence, were hanging out this summer, looking like they were having a much better time than any other celebrity squad. Well, it turns out that this newfound friendship has grown into a …Amy Schumer
Yesterday, Deadline scoop bot Mike Fleming reported that Bruce Willis was dropping out of a (still-untitled) Woody Allen film that’s currently shooting in Beverly Hills, supposedly leaving due to a scheduling conflict with Willis’ role in a Broadway adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery. Actors and …Movies
For a quirky little comedy about ghosts, Beetlejuice has done quite well establishing itself as a timeless classic. Not only was it one of director Tim Burton’s seminal early works, it also features excellent performances from Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, and more. Made on a modest …Movies
From the very beginning, it was obvious that there was something darkly different about Tim Burton. The boy from Burbank, Calif. — who turns 57 this week — grew up inhaling morbid curiosities from the likes of Vincent Price, Ray Harryhausen, and Edgar Allen Poe. His sphere of influence …Movies
This Week In Posters has been in extended hiatus, but enough people whined, whinged, and bitched about its absence to convince me to bring it back. See? I do listen to you! Don’t ever let your boss, mom, or conscience tell you you aren’t important, FilmDrunk reader.
An added benefit is that our new …Zac Efron
Enterprising movie studios seem content to try and try again when it comes to video-game adaptations, no matter how many times they fail. This week brought us Hitman: Agent 47, a reboot/sequel of 2007’s Hitman. It grossed just $8.2 million, well below expectations (around $11 million), the budget …Movies
