When the first trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot arrived earlier this week, everyone noted that the footage was cut awfully similar to the marketing for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Since this is the Internet, it took someone less than 24 hours to splice together Matthew McConaughey's voice with Reg E. Cathey's narration and the results were uncanny. The trailer played exactly the same, beat for beat. This can't be an accident. The marketing folks at 20th Century Fox didn't utilize beautiful shots of cornfields, traditional images of Americana and astronauts suiting up for a dangerous mission by accident. And then there's Cathey's narration, which sounds like something out of The Right Stuff, not a superhero movie. The lack of...

What.s the difference between the teaser trailers for The Fantastic Four and Interstellar? Not much apparently. That.s according to this new mash-up of the films' trailers, which proves just how similar they both are. Don.t believe me? Take a look for yourself. Eerie, huh? It.s also kind of awesome too. Mostly because Matthew McConaughey.s voice is so delightfully hypnotic that you can.t help but feel enchanted. Seriously, the man could probably talk off a eunuch. The fact that these trailers are so similar has actually caused a bit of reaction from old school Fantastic Four fans. They have criticized the first clip from Josh Trank.s impending blockbuster because of how dark and moody it looked. They believe that this is totally at odds with The Fantastic Four.s light and jovial aesthetic from the comics. Plus, most of them are still pretty annoyed »
Cut Eva Mendes some slack.
The 40-year-old Hitch actress presented at the Hollywood Stands Up To Cancer event presented by the Entertainment Industry Foundation on Wednesday night, where she had a bit of trouble reading the teleprompter on-stage.
Luckily, she has a very good excuse.
"I'm sorry, go back -- you guys got it, right?" Eva said after the little hiccup. "I just had a baby. I haven't slept. I'm sorry!"
She's of course referring to her daughter with Ryan Gosling, Esmeralda Amada, whom she gave birth to in September.
Watch the cute moment in the video above.

A version of this story first appeared in the Feb. 6 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Matthew McConaughey and Gus Van Sant generated headlines when they turned up beachside at 2014's Cannes Film Festival to plug The Sea of Trees, a $25 million drama they hadn't started shooting. But the real story was behind the scenes, where Ken Kao — son of billionaire Gps pioneer Min Kao — and Alex Walton were using the splashy event to launch Bloom, their new production, financing and sales outfit. The message was clear: The duo has the resources to put together high-

It was just announced that Matthew McConaughey will star in a screen adaptation of Christopher McDougall’s book Born To Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, And The Greatest Race The World Has Never Seen. Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z) penned the screenplay for the upcoming film, which will be produced by Mickey Liddell, Deb Newmyer and Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
Born to Run is described as an “epic adventure” that follows McDougall as he ventures off to Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons in search of a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners. Intent on learning their secrets of running hundreds of miles without rest in brutal terrain, the Tarahumara Indians flip his understanding of the art of running on its head.
The tribe’s superhuman athletic talent is combined with excellent physical health, both leading to the tribe’s ultimately peaceful existence. With the help of a mysterious loner Caballo Blanco, »

Primed to be presented to foreign buyers at next week’s European Film Market in Berlin, the production is being overseen by Sierra/Affinity with plans to get the camera rolling in June. Currently, Gaghan’s Gold is set to film in a variety of locations around the globe, including New York, Thailand and New Mexico.
Based on a script from Patrick Massett and John Zinman (The Blacklist, Friday Night Lights), the director’s latest project will largely orbit around the true story of McConaughey’s Walsh, a wide-eyed prospector and hustler who pulls together some friends in order to pull of one of the most ambitious dreams he can conjure: unearthing vast amounts of buried gold deep within the Indonesian jungle.

Voice-overs about man's will to push the boundaries of exploration and discovery, shots of characters gearing up to journey into the unknown,... cornfields! There's definitely a few similarities between the first trailer for the Fantastic Four and the early teasers for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, but Youtuber GunsAndJR has replaced the audio from the former with Matthew McConaughey's Interstellar narration and a bit of Hans Zimmer for good measure, and it's interesting just how well they actually sync up. »
Eva Mendes has been relishing her time at home with 4-month-old daughter Esmeralda Amada. But Wednesday night, the actress stepped back into the spotlight in support of the Hollywood Stands Up to Cancer event, presented by the Entertainment Industry Foundation and chaired by CAA agent Jim Toth and his wife, Reese Witherspoon (who was in New Orleans filming and unable to attend). Looking stunning in a black long-sleeved cocktail dress and white heels, her hair pulled back into a high ponytail, the actress, 40, was all smiles, mingling with fellow mothers Camila McConaughey (who attended with husband Matthew McConaughey), Susan Downey »

Viacom unveiled its quarterly financials on Thursday morning before the stock market officially opened, missing the mark on its revenue forecast, though hitting earnings per share pretty much on the nose.

According to TheStreet, the consensus estimate predicted Eps would be around $1.28 on revenue of $3.41 billion. Zacks Investment Research expected earnings to be a penny higher per share.
Net earnings for the recent three-month period were $500 million, down from $547 million at the end of 2013.

I was quite pleased with the first teaser for The Fantastic Four, but like some of you, I also thought it was very similar to the trailers for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, especially the first one with Matthew McConaughey's narration. This being 2015 and all, of course someone had to create a mash-up video featuring visuals from the Josh Trank film and the McConaughey dialogue from the Interstellar trailer. Check it out: Although I'm sure Trank »

In a continued attempt to find interesting, less predictable work post-Oscar, Matthew McConaughey has his eye on another interesting film. He’s now attached to star in an adaptation of Christopher Dougall’s best-selling book Born To Run.Matthew Michael Carnahan has tackled the adaptation of the tome, which is subtitled 'A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, And The Greatest Race The World Has Never Seen'.

Matthew McConaughey has experienced a hell of a career resurgence over the past few years, and it looks like he's trying to keep the ball rolling. Deadline reports that he'll star in Born to Run, an adaptation of Christopher McDougall’s best-selling book Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, And The Greatest Race The World Has Never Seen. Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z, The Kingdom) is writing the screenplay, but no director is attached yet.
The book tells the true story of a journalist/runner who visited Mexico's Copper Canyons to learn from the Tarahumara Indians, a tribe who trained themselves to run for hundreds of miles without injury or rest. The climax involves a big race between the tribe members and some of America's best runners.
This seems like a cool, small scale project for McConaughey, and it's clear that he's been making the right career choices lately, »

After taking home an Academy Award for the lead role in Dallas Buyers Club, and getting all sorts of acclaim for "True Detective," you can say that the McConaissance is going strong. Matthew McConaughey will next be seen in Gus Van Sant's The Sea of Trees, which could land him another Oscar nod when the time comes, and there may be yet another awards contender in the future for McConaughey as well. Deadline reports the laid back actor is attached to star in Born to Run, an adaptation of Christopher McDougall's book of the same name which was once reported to be adapted by Peter Sarsgaard. Read on! The book follows the author as he finds a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners learns their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is just wrong. Here's the official synopsis: »

Kevin Hart might be a man of the tiny variety but he proved his heart is as big as Texas Wednesday ... invading the Ut locker room and working out with some of the biggest beasts in college football. Hart is in Austin on a promotional tour for his movie "The Wedding Ringer" -- and decided to stop by the University of Texas workout facility for a sweat session with the Longhorns.

This is a reprint of our review from Comic-Con 2014. Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey's appearance in Hall H wasn't the only surprise aspect of Paramount's lengthy San Diego Comic-Con panel yesterday. It was also announced, after a brief clip was shown, that "Project Almanac," the Michael Bay-produced found footage time travel movie, would also screen for select attendees. We were able to attend the screening and, while it doesn't exactly blaze a new trail, the movie is smart and knowingly acknowledges both its place in the time travel subgenre and its formal limitations as a found footage movie. That self-awareness makes it fun and silly and, yes, kind of stupid, but in ways that are mostly enjoyable and forgivable. David Raskin (Jonny Weston) is a high school senior and a scientific genius. When the movie begins, we're watching the application video that David is submitting to MIT. He »
