Advertising is next to godliness...at least in Hollywood, so here's a roundup of some actors keeping bills paid, mortgages updated and vacations bankrolled. Eva Green will be the face of the Campari Calendar in 2015, which we didn't even know was a thing. Check out the teaser video below which is both sexy and totally terrifying. [Cinemur] And while we're on the subject of alcohol, Jude Law put on his dancing shoes for a six minute short film-vertisement for Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Basically, it follows his character as he tries to win a luxury yacht via the power of dance. Okay, then. [Variety] Lastly, Dave Franco and Kevin Hart appear in a really loud and probably epilepsy inducing, three minute spot for EA's "Madden Season." NFL-ers LeSean McCoy, Colin Kaepernick and Richard Sherman all feature too, if that's your thing. [The Wrap] »

So…what do I mean by “What the F**k?” Movies? These are the films that, upon completing your viewing, you seriously worry about the director’s sanity. Or you can’t really comprehend what you just saw. Or you know what you watched was something magical, but can’t really put the pieces together in your mind. Or, worse, you know what happened, but certifiably it’s insane. But with this “definition” comes a few caveats: no horror films and no fully animated films. Those genres lean a little too crazy to begin with – it’s more fun to look at films that force a sense of realism, even if it’s just on the surface.
50. Southland Tales (2007)
Directed by: Richard Kelly

In a visually stunning sci-fi adventure, heroic pilot Jude Law teams up with Gwyneth Paltrow's plucky reporter to save the world from marauding giant robots. It's the first time a film was made entirely in front of a blue screen (everything but the actors, their costumes and props are digitally created) and gives debut director Kerry Conran the chance to create sumptuously retro world of airships, inter-galactic fighters and flying robots all with a sepia sheen. »
So as we anticipate what Brent has been up to since the end of the BBC hit comedy, here's what the cast have done since:
Ricky Gervais played the lead role as David Brent - the embarrassing, toe-curling and cringeworthy boss of company Wernham Hogg, devoid of self-awareness but poised with an unwavering love for the paper merchants he manages.
Gervais went on to create comedy Extras with Stephen Merchant, which was co-produced by the BBC and HBO and aired between 2005 and 2007. Gervais played ambitious actor Andy Millman, afflicted with a useless agent played by Merchant. Guest stars have included Patrick Stewart, Samuel L Jackson, Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet.
In 2009, Gervais starred in, wrote and directed his feature comedy debut The Invention of Lying. »
If you seek out Dom Hemingway (as you should) for a chance to see Jude Law as never before, you’ll likely come away thrilled with what writer-director Richard Shepard has unleashed within the actor. He’s on fire. Physically, Law’s almost unrecognizable, complete with greased-back hair, a protruding belly and a feral glint of sexual hunger in his eyes. And as an actor, he’s louder, bolder, nuttier and more rakishly appealing than ever before. It’s quite a transformation, coming on the heels of many almost clinically detached performances over the past few years – and Dom Hemingway should mark the beginning of a new era for the star, as Mud did for McConaughey. He’s so stunningly good, so fiercely alive, in this role that one can almost feel the heat from his fire coming off every frame.
Thanks to Law and to Shepard, who proves himself »

Although the Toronto International Film Festival is having trouble tracking down Bill Murray, in order to secure his hotly buzzed "St. Vincent" for a premiere screening, the actor isn't completely off the grid. Prone taking on gigs that suit his fleeting fancy, Murray has a surprise up his sleeve. The actor has joined Jon Favreau's upcoming live action/animated "Jungle Book," taking the role of the beloved Baloo. He joins Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong’o, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson and Neel Sethi: The film is scheduled to open on October 9, 2015. Laura Linney has joined Jude Law, Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman in "Genius." Based on A. Scott Berg's book "Max Perkins: Editor Of Genius," the drama recounts the real-life relationship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Law) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth), who developed a tender, complex friendship that changed »

Less than two weeks ago, Dan Aykroyd made the bold claim that the Ghostbusters reboot (which is still being referenced by some as Ghostbusters 3) is set to start pre-production this spring. Now it sounds like shooting may follow soon after, as Sony and Columbia Pictures are targeting Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig to take the helm. And the catch is, his Ghostbusters will center on a female led cast.
While an offer has not been officially made, Paul Feig has shown interest in taking on the project. Sources warn that a lot must be 'worked out' before discussions turn serious. That said, he is currently the studio's first choice. Sony declined to comment.
Original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman was set to take on this long-gestating sequel, but bowed out after the untimely death of cast member Harold Ramis. On March 18, Ramis, who is staying on the movie as a consultant and producer, »
Director Richard Shepard’s comedy Dom Hemingway tells you exactly what kind of film it is with its opening scene: Jude Law delivers an ode to his, um, member, directly into the camera while engaging in a certain act in a prison shower. It’s vulgar and hilarious all at the same time, and Law delivers the lines with such gusto that you’re inclined to take this guy’s word for it. The rest of the film is an absolute delight, but particularly the first act is a whirlwind mix of hilarity, sadness, and pure boldness as we follow the titular Hemingway’s very specific path to rehabilitation after being released from prison. Read my full Dom Hemingway Blu-ray review after the jump. The Film Following that very memorable opening scene, Dom Hemingway kicks into gear as Jude Law’s titular safecracker is released from prison after serving a 12-year sentence. »

Panel time! We've watched the "Gotham" and "Flash" pilots and seen hints from "Constantine" and "Arrow," including the reveal that Ra's al Ghul will be the Big Bad on Season 3. Geoff Johns is moderating and... Let's go! 10:05 p.m. The size of this panel is utterly insane. It's basically the full casts of All Four Shows. In rows. On the Hall H stage. 10:07 p.m. Angelica Celaya is the biggest panel surprise. She's the newest "Constantine" star and she started work yesterday. 10:08 p.m. "It's kinda crazy to see the universe represented like this," Johns says. 10:08 p.m. Where did "Gotham" come from and why start with the death of the Waynes, Johns asks. "Origin stories are my favorite part of the mythologies of the DC Universe," Bruno Heller says. He found it natural to start with the beginning of the process and "What is more »

It’s been nearly six months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose, and yet his presence is still heavily felt throughout Hollywood. In addition to a lengthy and acclaimed filmography, the Academy Award winner kept up a busy work schedule until the time of his death. He had three films slated for 2014 release: John Slattery‘s directorial debut, God’s Pocket, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and A Most Wanted Man. With the latter hitting theaters today, we thought we’d give you a look every Psh film currently available for your streaming pleasure. Whether as cynical music writer Lester Bangs in Almost Famous or hopelessly lonely boom mic operator Scott J. in Boogie Nights, Hoffman managed to steal the scene in each one of his films. If you have a Netflix account, log in and get caught up on some of the greatest performances in the last 20 years. »

Opening in limited release this weekend is Woody Allen’s new film Magic in the Moonlight. The romantic comedy is set in the south of France in the 1920s and stars Colin Firth as an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle, as a young woman (Emma Stone) claims to be able to communicate with spirits. As he spends more time with the girl, however, he starts to wonder if she may not be a fraud after all. The film also stars Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, and Jacki Weaver. For more on the film watch the trailer. A few days ago I landed an exclusive video interview with Colin Firth. He talked about making Magic in the Moonlight, working with Woody Allen, filming in France, shooting at the magic hour, working with Matthew Vaughn on Kingsman: The Secret Service and one of the »

Dom Hemingway I quite enjoyed Dom Hemingway if only for Jude Law's brash performance, but it seems others weren't as taken with it as I was. I will say this, you can do a lot worse when it comes to rentals or even purchases this week so give this one a shot, I think you'll like it.
Witness for the Prosecution One film I feel any cinema fan will certainly enjoy is Witness for the Prosecution and my dumb ass was too slow on the uptake when Kino sent out notice they were releasing a new Blu-ray edition of the film so I missed out on a review copy. Directed by Billy Wilder this is a film that will one day be in my Best Movies section, check it out.
Blue Ruin Solid movie, though I can't help but feel people got a little too carried away in their praise. »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Jude Law dons impressive chops and gold teeth to play a sleazy
safecracker fresh out of jail. Dom took the fall without ratting out his boss (Demián Bichir), and now it's time to pay the piper. Richard E. Grant co-stars as his best friend, whom Dom enlists on his quest to get paid. Emilia Clarke (the mother of dragons!) plays Dom's estranged daughter, Evelyn.
Why We're In: We love darkly funny crime thrillers, and it's cool to see Jude Law back in action.
