When Super Troopers 2 kick-started its Indiegogo campaign last month, the crowdfunding initiative met its $2 million goal in a single day. Yes, that’s $2 million big ones in just over 24 hours. “That’s cool,” you’re probably thinking, “but why’d they keep going?” Because $2 million would convince …Movies
As the plane’s engines rumbled my inner ears and as the American mid-West patchwork swept beneath us, I tried to think about which character from the original Point Break film I was more like.
Was I Bodhi; the affable, ass-kicking rebel with the zen-like philosophy towards caste systems and cash?
Was …New Jersey
True Story opened in 831 theaters this past weekend, and opens even wider this weekend (find a theater near you here). Here’s my
originalrevised review from Sundance.
True Story is an odd little piece of work. It stars Jonah Hill as Michael Finkel, a journalist who was fired from the the New York …Jonah Hill
Fast & Furious 8 opens on a secluded beach. Everyone is relaxing and playing in the sand. Suddenly, a helicopter lands nearby, and two men in suits ask Dom to come with them. They take him to an intelligence black site where Kurt Russell’s character, Mr. Nobody, explains why he was brought in.
MR. …Keanu Reeves
M. Night Shyamalan’s remarkable track record of making consecutive, totally unwatchable pieces of sh*t might be kind of endearing if he wasn’t such a dick about it (making movies is hard! we would understand!). Instead of laughing it off and letting us gradually grow to love him like C-Tates, he …M. Night Shyamalan
Game of Thrones is just about the biggest cultural phenomenon on the planet right now, but other than Peter Dinklage, it still hasn’t produced a real breakout star. Jon Snow, aka 28-year-old British actor Kit Harington, makes his bid to become one in director James Kent’s Testament of Youth, a World …Jon Snow
THE ADULT FILM MINUTE: Once per month, except occasionally when it’s twice, Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals will be telling us a little bit about what’s going on in adult entertainment and why it should matter to you.
Imagine – a sitcom about a family’s daily life, set in the contextually ordinary, yet …Modern Family
Man Of Steel was a dark movie. Pa Kent suggested it would have been a lot cooler if Clark had let a busload of kids drown and director Zack Snyder himself has talked about the mass deaths he wanted in the film. (129,000 deaths, by some estimates.)
Man Of Steel was also a dark movie in that Snyder …Superman
Even though we’ve already watched what seems like an entire film’s worth of clips from Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters on May 1, we haven’t seen much from Vision. Sure, we’ve seen his character poster and some other random images, but casual comic book fans like me probably don’t have …Paul Bettany
As Channing Tatum already slyly revealed to his followers on Twitter, albeit shortly after 20th Century Fox made its own official announcement, his debut in a comic book movie will take place on October 7, 2016 in Gambit. That’s roughly five months after X-Men: Apocalypse will make $150 million on …Channing Tatum
Adam Sandler and Happy Madison are currently shooting a Magnificent Seven spoof called The Ridiculous Six for Netflix, starring Nick Nolte and Vanilla Ice, among others, and it’s going about how you would expect. About a dozen Native American actors, including the culture advisor, walked off the set …Adam Sandler
We’ve already gotten a film about Boston mob king Whitey Bulger in everything but name (The Departed), so why not do the real thing? Johnny Depp plays Bulger in Black Mass, from Out of the Furnace director Scott Cooper (hopefully this will be better than that turd). People are hoping this will be …Johnny Depp
A few years ago there was a rumor that Warner Bros. was looking to remake the 1993 drama Falling Down, which starred Michael Douglas as a man whose life shattered around him, causing him to lose his sh*t on a rampage across Los Angeles. A remake was a bad idea for two reasons: 1) The original is a …Food
With the premiere of the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, the Marvel Universe will get even bigger and badder with the introduction of even more characters and exciting stories. That means that casual moviegoers might be more confused than they already were, especially because …Marvel Universe
This is a clip of a scene from some Kung Fu movie that a young Andre The Giant was in. I do not know the name of the movie. If you know, please let me know in the comments. It’s quite surprising seeing how fast and in shape he was back then for all of us who only remembered him from his …Film
Chewey, we’re home. But let’s go shopping, because we’re about to make a sh*t ton of money. Of the 15 highest worldwide opening weekend grosses ever, only one dates back to before 2007: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, which earned $303,949,700 in 2005. That, despite how much everyone …Star Wars
As if it weren’t clear by now, Sony isn’t half-assing it with this Ghostbusters Universe business. In a recent Hollywood Reporter article about how Sony will be different with Tom Rothman taking over for Amy Pascal, they revealed that the budget for Paul Feig’s lady Ghostbusters movie† will be a …Melissa McCarthy
North Korean Defectors Are Still Dropping Copies Of ‘The Interview,’ With Plans To Drop ‘Team America’
Last week I told you about a CNN story about North Korean defector Lee Min-bok, who had reportedly used balloons to drop 80,000 copies of The Interview over North Korea. This week, The Hollywood Reporter published a new piece from Paul Bond, who was actually embedded with some of the balloon …Asia
I spent Friday reading every Paul Blart 2 review in existence, and almost all mentioned the non-existant response from the audience. Nonetheless, while it couldn’t catch the Furious 7 juggernaut, Paul Blart 2 still opened with a respectable $24 million. That was just behind Paul Blart 1’s $31.8 …Box Office
A little less than a year ago, Penny Dreadful star Josh Hartnett dropped a bombshell on Details. Not only did he turn down Superman Returns, but he also said “no thanks” to Spider-Man and Batman. That seems like three pretty ballsy decisions, but as he told the magazine, he was just a 22-year-old with …Josh Hartnett
Today in shocking news you’ll never believe, the movie where Kevin James gets beaten up by a bird in the trailer currently doesn’t have any positive reviews. I guess those high-falutin’ critics just can’t appreciate the beauty of a fat guy on a Segway. …Again. Falling down. …Again. Paul Blart Mall …Kevin James
Movie studios are all shameless nostalgia pimps these days, waving their rainsticks trying to make everyone forget that Jurassic Park already had a bunch of crappy sequels. Anyway, Universal and director Colin Trevorrow are trying to convince us to kick the football one more time with Jurassic World, …Bryce Dallas Howard
As far as hooks go, Roar‘s got a pretty good one: Noel Marshall, a film producer, agent, husband to Tippi Hedren and notably not an animal trainer, blew a fortune trying to direct his first (and ultimately only) film, mostly starring a few hundred untrained lions, tigers, pumas, panthers, jaguars and …Film
“Tell me, do you bleed? You will.”
Much like Batman, the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer will appear when you don’t expect it. Zack Snyder already released a teaser saying the trailer would be here on 4/20 (heh heh 420, bro), but this is the internet. We get everything early.
As for the …Batman
Every time there’s a new tidbit regarding the better-late-than-never and seriously overdue sequel to Blade Runner, the consensus seems to be, “They’re still talking about that?” After all, Ridley Scott is 77 years old and has a pretty full film plate, and Harrison Ford is 72 and recovering from …Ryan Gosling

I was in SoCal this week for the MTV Movie Awards and to do Alison Rosen’s podcast, so I had to leave the regular Frotcrew in San Francisco (though Bret did still show up to the Frotquarters thinking it was still on. …Award Shows
I’ve been a fan of Alison Rosen ever since Adam Carolla started auditions for a new news girl, so it was pretty cool that I got to be on her podcast this week. I’m not usually a nervous person, but have you ever had to show up to someone’s home that you’re a fan of but you’ve never met before? It …Adam Carolla
Let’s just get right to this, shall we? At Star Wars Celebration, during the live panel with J.J. Abrams, we got our first look at the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ll have a full breakdown shortly, but for now, here it is in all its glory. It’s pretty great, in our opinion.Star Wars
Porn Stars Describe The Worst Reaction They’ve Ever Gotten From Someone Finding Out They Work In Porn
In the latest installment of Woodrocket’s Ask A Porn Star series, our friend Lee Roy Myers and company asked a cross-section of adult performers (Claire Robbins, Vyxen Steel, April O’Neil, Mickey Mod, Rain DeGray, Anikka Albrite, Jade Nile, Allie Haze, Violet Monroe, Mick Blue, and Aubrey Snow) …Nile
The last gorgeous trailer for George Miller’s upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road revealed some of the plot details of the fourth installment of his post-apocalyptic franchise. We know that Max (Tom Hardy) escapes the freaky looking bad guy and his psychotic minions that play flamethrower guitars, and he …Trailers
