Helen Mirren Wants To Play The Bad Guy In ‘Fast And Furious 8′

With more than a trillion or so insanely loyal fans on Facebook, Vin Diesel is easily one of the most beloved actors working in show business today. In fact, it’s strange that more actors aren’t openly gushing over how cool and calm he is at all times, begging to work with the star of the Fast and

A British Politician Has Admitted To Favoriting A Porn Site, Saying ‘I Am A Man Of The World’

It seems hard to believe that in 2015, people still deny watching porn. But just last year, one survey reported that only 34% of men and 15% of women admitting to having watched porn in the past year. Which leads me to believe that around 65 and 84 percent of those surveyed were huge liars. But …

Watch Christina Hendricks Peel Her Face Off In The Trailer For Ryan Gosling’s Directorial Debut, ‘Lost River’

Ryan Gosling may look sweet as maple syrup and smell like freshly cooked waffles, but don’t be fooled, beneath that Canadian exterior, he has some deep thoughts. Morbid ones, the kind you don’t think about when you’re playing double dutch with your nieces. One time he hit a tree with a dead cat. …

Weekend Box Office: ‘Get Hard’ Earned Almost $20 Million Less Than ‘Home’

I looked at my screening invite for Home last week and thought “Home? What the hell is Home?” Then today I saw that Home had grossed an estimated $54 million domestic and $102.2 million including international numbers, and I thought “Home? What the hell is Home?” Turns out it’s a Dreamworks Animation …

All The Best Comedies On Netflix Streaming

The most important thing about a good comedy is its ability to generate laughs years after its release. It’s a lot easier to create topical humor, but the kind of laughs that break age and time barriers are few and far between. The films here are capital “C” comedies, with less attention paid to …

Buffed Up Jake Gyllenhaal Punches Faces And Mirrors In The ‘Southpaw’ Trailer

Playing a washed up boxer has been a necessary rite of passage for any would-be serious actor ever since Marlon Brando coulda been a contendah in On The Waterfront, and now it’s Jake Gyllenhaal’s turn in Southpaw. Gyllenhaal plays… (*checks IMDB*) holy sh*t… “Billy Hope,” because I guess “Whitey …

JK Simmons Keeps His Oscar On A Mini Fridge In His Bathroom

USA Today recently did a profile on this year’s best supporting actor winner, JK Simmons, and don’t you worry, there’s a tempo pun in the first sentence. Ya know, in case you were worried they wouldn’t be able to squeeze one in there. Anyway, the profile focuses mostly on Simmons’ upcoming role in …

Quentin Tarantino Lists His Top 20 Spaghetti Westerns

Quentin Tarantino recently listed his 20 favorite spaghetti westerns – that is, westerns produced and/or directed by Italians – and if I’m being honest here I probably couldn’t have named 20 spaghetti westerns of any kind with a gun to my head, let alone play favorites. Luckily, Quentin is just the …

Vin Diesel Says The ‘Fast & Furious’ Franchise Was Influenced By ‘Dungeons & Dragons’

The big pull quote from Variety’s deep dive into the life and times of Vin Diesel was, understandably, his claim that Furious 7 should win the Academy Award for Best Picture. But there was another piece of the story that went somewhat overlooked, and I think we should probably talk about it for a …

Super Troopers 2 Has Met Its Crowdfunding Goal In One Day

I wrote about Broken Lizard’s Indiegogo campaign for Super Troopers 2 yesterday. The campaign came about because, according to Jay Chandrasekhar, “since we refused to write a sequel where the highway cops have morphed into super hero-vampires, Fox Searchlight proposed the following deal: they’ll …

Arnold Schwarzenegger Protects Zombie Abigail Breslin In ‘Maggie’

When Arnold first announced he was going to stop doing politics and return to movies, a lot of us got pretty excited. That excitement faded somewhat once we saw the kinds of movies he was actually making (basically Eraser but with more jokes about how he’s old). But now the ol’ mulatto ass lover is …

How Tony Jaa Went From ‘The Next Bruce Lee’ To Rock Bottom — And Recovered To Star In ‘Furious 7′

Tony Jaa — the man touted as the “next Bruce Lee” — wasn’t in regular form. Worldwide audiences were used to seeing Jaa dripping with sweat, his hair slicked and his muscles bubbling to the surface. He was a hero in his native Thailand, revered for his incredible athleticism and on-screen magnetism …

Here’s Your First Look At Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor In ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’

We know the actor, Jesse Eisenberg. But we don’t know how he’s going to look as Lex Luthor, the iconic supervillain and evil genius in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Until, it turns out, right now.

As you might guess, they’re not straying too far from the classic look. See for yourself:

‘Insurgent’ Is A Myers-Briggs Test Gone Rogue

I’ll always have a certain respect for movies that rely on the enduring appeal of their mediocrity. Insurgent - sorry, The Divergent Series: Insurgent – is a story about I-don’t-know, starring two actors I’d rather not know. It’s the follow-up to last year’s Divergent, and the latest (no, not last) in …

The New ‘Entourage’ Trailer Breaks The Record For Pool Parties And Yachts And Pool Parties On Yachts

I know I used to say that Entourage is just a series of pool parties where the biggest conflict is whether some guy is going to be in a movie or not, but in the newest trailer for the Entourage movie, they’ve really outdone themselves. It’s less a movie advertisement than a tourism video sponsored by …

Jack Nicholson Used To Sneak A Secret Inscription Into Each One Of His Film Sets

Anjelica Huston was Jack Nicholson‘s squeeze for more than a decade, so to say that she knows Jack pretty well is an understatement. In the memoirs she released last year, Huston went into great detail about her and Jack’s doomed relationship, but she also gave some interesting insight into his …

John Travolta Will Star In A Taken-Esque Revenge Story From The Director Of ‘The Scorpion King’

Liam Neeson’s Taken clone Run All Night opened with $11 million a few weeks ago and Sean Penn’s Taken clone The Gunman debuted to an even worse $5 million this past weekend, so I suppose the obvious solution was to try another non-Taken Taken movie (NTT) with John Travolta.

THR reports today that Amanda …

Universal Is Releasing A Special Christian Edition Of ‘Unbroken’ Sold Only In Christian Stores

Michelle Rodriguez Says Paul Walker’s Death Caused Her To Get ‘Pretty Crazy’
