The new comedy "Get Hard" stars Kevin Hart as an unlikely coach who trains Will Ferrell for a stint in prison. In one scene, Hart insists that Ferrell go to a top La brunch spot and give oral sex to a random patron in the bathroom to learn -- I guess? -- the mechanics of prison rape. Yes, this movie equates consensual gay sexual activity with actual rape. Cut to Will Ferrell in a restaurant bathroom gagging at the sight of a penis for the amusement of a multiplex audience. Could it be the most homophobic scene in a comedy of the past ten years? It's certainly a candidate. To commemorate this weirdly ignorant movie, we've compiled a list: movies with homophobic scenes so blatant, they made us shudder. Sometimes a movie reeks of homophobia (See: that ol' heart-warmer "Cruising") and sometimes it's just a couple of moments in a »

In case you didn't know, Kevin Hart has more in common with Jim Carrey, Louis C.K., Stephen Colbert and Zach Galifianakis than just being funny and famous: Like them, he is an Saturday Night Life reject. Hart, who appears in the upcoming comedy film Get Hard with SNL alum Will Ferrell, recalled his failed audition for the NBC sketch comedy series during a recent interview on Conan. Like many comedians and improv actors who audition for the show, he performed a celebrity impression. The problem was, executive producer Lorne Michaels and others watching him didn't seem to be familiar with the star, retired NBA player and coach-turned sports analyst Avery »
For every Harry Potter or Hunger Games series, there are those franchises that didn't quite set the world on fire...
Since Insurgent came out, I’ve been thinking about those less fortunate: the franchise wannabes. While Divergent may have succeeded financially, (a film that rode on the coat-tails of the even more lucrative The Hunger Games franchise) there are others who didn’t quite make it into the movie world’s big leagues. These are the franchise-starters that flopped, the films produced with the optimistic hope that they will bring in the readies and kick-start Hollywood’s latest franchise. Worse luck for them, really.
For the sake of simplicity, this list will zero in on Ya franchise-starters, films adapted from a young adult novel or with that audience in mind. There are plenty of more mature films that struggled such as Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time, The A-Team »
Now here's an interesting one, writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour, whose vampire feature A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night made waves last year, is setting up her next project and she has the support of Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures and she's lining up an interesting cast for what sounds like a fascinating feature. Described as a "cannibal love story", The Bad Batch as a post-apocalyptic tale set in a Texas wasteland where a community of cannibals reside. The shift from what you may expect from such a story is that this is a love story about a cannibal known as Miami Man (Jason Momoa) and his food. Joining Momoa in the picture are Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, Suki Waterhouse and Diego Luna with The Wrap reporting Waterhouse has landed the female lead, a character named Arlen. Luna will play a man named Jimmy. Reeves will play The Dream »

With a Sundance and London Film Festival appearance under its belt already, vampire movie A Girl Who Walks Home Alone at Night has been garnering lots of praise both for the film and its director Ana Lily Amirpour. So it comes as no surprise that her next film, The Bad Batch, is securing some top talent ahead of its April shoot.
Megan Ellison, producer of American Hustle and Her, and who helped secure the rights for the Terminator franchise and executive producer on Terminator Genysis, has snapped up Amirpour’s latest, a dystopian love story set in a Texas wasteland.
And, if securing a deal with Ellison’s Annapurna Productions wasn’t enough, the director has also assembled a talented, if diverse cast to bring the film to life. Suki Waterhouse (Insurgent), Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien) and Jason Momoa (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice) have been announced as starring in the project, »

Clear your schedules, because the most interesting film to head our way in 2016 just got more interesting. Sure, we’re all on the edge of our seats, wanting to see the next huge offerings from the DC and Marvel stables – but what if there was something happening that was so original, so exciting and so promising, that it actually presented itself as a viable alternative to all that comic book fare? Well, here it is: The Bad Batch.
Last year, Ana Lily Amirpour was the talk of the festival circuit, with her feature film debut A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. The award-winning Iranian vampire film set tongues wagging at Sundance and, very quickly, the British-born Iranian-American writer-director was defying the Hollywood odds and lining up her next high profile project – a feat that is sadly still a rarity for directors that are also female.

Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves have both dipped their toes into the indie world throughout their careers, but it's been quite awhile since they were involved with a project that has as much advance buzz as "The Bad Batch" does. The Annapurna Pictures and Vice project is acclaimed filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour's follow up to "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" and is described as a dystopian love story set in Texas. According to Deadline, while Diego Luna and Suki Waterhouse ("Insurgent") are on board as the film's leads, Carrey is set to play The Hermit, Reeves will portray The Dream and Jason Momoa will bring someone called Miami Man to life.

It's pretty rare to see Hollywood movies about cannibals, but a rather star-studded one is now in the works - and what's more, it's apparently a love story. Titled The Bad Batch, the project added Jason Momoa to its cast last month, and now word has come down that he will be joined in the movie by Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, Diego Luna, and Insurgent's Suki Waterhouse. As described by The Wrap,the project is set to be directed by Ana Lily Amirpour and is "a post-apocalyptic tale set in a Texas wasteland where a community of cannibals reside."
