When we visited the set of Magic Mike Xxl, Channing Tatum made several lofty promises for this Summer's sequel, but costar Joe Manganiello (returning as "Big Dick Richie") is almost seeking to outdo him. With more definitive answers for the kind of movie this is (definitely a comedy) and how racy it's going to be (it's going to be "out there," he pledged), Manganiello has us even more excited for the movie. And not just that, in our interview with him and several other reporters on the Savannah, Ga, location, Manganiello spilled about fiancée Sofia Vergara, who was visiting him on set that day. Yes, he said the things you'd expect him to say, along with a little Tmi that might make you blush. Ready for Manganiello's antics? What are we going to learning about your character that we didn't learn in the last film? Joe Manganiello: This movie is an ensemble, »
Son of Saul and Carol also strong contenders.
The surreal drama, starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, is facing competition from Holocaust drama Son of Saul and Todd Haynes’ Carol, starring Cate Blanchett in the tale of a lesbian affair in the 1950s.
Having faced some harsh criticism during the festival, Gus Van Sant’s The Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey is a long 20/1 to clinch the top prize, with Maiwenn’s Mon roi bringing up the rear at 40/1.

The deal, struck during the Cannes market this week, will see Broad Green add the film to its 2016 slate.
Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston plays Mazur, a customs and excise agent who went undercover as Robert Musella and traded on mob connections to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld, and the bankers who enabled them.
In an elaborate sting, the operation reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way »

Alright, alright, alright -- Matthew McConaughey just might be in a Marvel movie!
The Oscar winner is reportedly being sought after by Marvel for the role of Norman Osborn/Green Goblin in the upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, at least according to PointofGeeks.com.
The possible casting news isn't the craziest rumor, as the actor recently revealed he's been considering a slew of possible superhero films.

Over the weekend Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey revealed that he’s “circled” several Marvel and DC scripts, suggesting that he’d be open to jumping in on the comic book movie bandwagon should the right opportunity present itself.
Well, if rumours are to be believed, Sony may have identified a role for the Interstellar star, with The Hashtag Show claiming that McConaughey is in contention to play Peter Parker’s arch-nemesis Norman Osborn in the upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man franchise.
Now, there may be nothing more to this than speculation, but assuming Norman Osborn is going to feature prominently in the reboot (and given the short shrift the character got in The Amazing Spider-Man series, it would seem highly, highly likely), then you’d have to imagine Sony will be looking at actor’s of McConaughey’s calibre to play the iconic villain alongside whichever young lead gets cast as Spider-Man. »

Recently, enigmatic Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey made it known that he has been entertaining scripts for superhero properties from both Marvel and DC, though he stopped short of revealing, in any detail, which projects and roles were being placed on his table. Today, one possible role has reached the surface. A website called Point of Geeks is going on record to say that Matthew McConaughey has been approached by Marvel to play Norman Osborn in the soon-to-be-rebooted Spider-Man series. The site claims that there have been "basic talks" between the actor and the studio, and they are quick to point out that in the same quotes given to Variety about reading Marvel scripts, McConaughey admitted that "nothing has been right for me yet." Does that mean he already has passed on the chance to play Norman before the project got off the ground? We know next to nothing about Marvel »
This particular rumor should be taken with a massive grain of salt, but that doesn’t change how exciting it is. Just days after Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey noted that he’s circled roles in comic book films before and would be open to starring in Marvel and DC adaptations, we’re hearing that he may currently be in Sony’s crosshairs for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.
The news comes from a YouTube channel called That Hashtag Show. Now, while they aren’t exactly the most credible source and don’t have a history for big scoops like this, they did correctly report several big Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers back in April, so there could be some truth here.
The role in question is that of Peter Parker’s longtime nemesis, Norman Osborn, who of course goes from being your traditional run-of-the-mill corrupt business magnate to glider-flying supervillain, »

It's grain of salt time! Youtube channel That Hashtag Show are reporting that Matthew McConaughey is being looked at by Marvel and Sony to play the latest incarnation of Norman Osborn for their new Spider-Man flick. These guys haven't broken a lot of scoops in the past, but we now know they were on point with some early Avengers: Age Of Ultron spoilers so this might be worth paying some attention to. Keep in mind that McConaughey did recently reveal that he'd read scripts from both Marvel and DC in the past and was still open to appearing in a comic book movie, so there's a chance this is just some wishful thinking - but, there's no doubt he'd be a great fit for the role. What do you guys think? Any truth to this? Sound off in the usual place. »
Just the other day, we learned from Matthew McConaughey that he had read scripts for both Marvel and DC projects but was not sure if he was ready to commit to a multi-film franchise. I assumed he was considering lead roles in films so it never once occurred to be that he would be in contention for a villain role. According to unsubstantiated rumors from YouTube's The Hashtag Show, McConaughey may be lined up to take on the third iteration of Green Goblin for 2017's reboot »

Camila Alves had a whirlwind couple of days in Cannes with her husband, Matthew McConaughey, who was in the South of France debuting his film The Sea of Trees. We caught up with her at a Bcbg and Magnum beach party to talk about the brands' new collaboration, which will be free with purchase for Bcbg shoppers starting in July, and why the red carpet experience at Cannes is truly one of a kind. She also had a great reason why she doesn't mind her husband's many dramatic movie transformations. »

Matthew McConaughey hit the stage at the University of Houston on Friday to deliver an advice-filled commencement speech to this year's graduates. The actor spoke in the school's new football stadium, where his dad once played for the team, and he shared some life lessons reminiscent of those he's dropped into his award show acceptance speeches over the past few years. "Do not fall into the entitlement trap of feeling like a victim," he said at one point. "You are not. Get over it and get on with it. Yes, most things are rewarding when you break a sweat to get them." Matthew also told the graduates to remove the word "unbelievable" from their vocabulary, and he talked about the difference between happiness and joy. For his appearance, he was paid $120,000, all of which he's donating to his charity, the Just Keep Livin Foundation, which helps high school students lead healthy, »
“Mad Max: Fury Road” raked in the most social mentions with 17,081 after the first week of the Cannes film festival, according to social-media analysis firm Way to Blue.
The company ranked films by calculating numbers for “overall buzz” and “intent-to-view,” as well as most buzzed about topics and stars from a sample size of 550,000 mentions from May 13-19. Since the reboot also opened around the world last week, the festival helped increase the overall buzz for George Miller’s film.
Following “Mad Max,” which led in overall buzz and intent-to-view, was the Cate Blanchett-Rooney Mara lesbian love story “Carol,” which pulled in 12,031 mentions. Blanchett was also the second most buzzed-about star behind Lupita Nyong’o, who took to the Cannes carpet in Gucci green. Other films generating buzz were the Matthew McConaughey mystery “The Sea of Trees,” Woody Allen’s “Irrational Man,” “The Lobster,” starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, »

The True Detective star explained that he has read scripts from the rival companies - but does this mean that the McConaissance will be expanding into the world of superheroes?
"Yeah, I've circled some of those," he told Variety. "Nothing has been right for me yet. But I'm sure open to it.
"It's very simple for me. I look at the script. Is the opportunity exciting? Is the money that comes with it exciting? Sure.
"Is it the possibility of going, 'Hey you can get on a train and it can be a franchise and you could do three, four, five, and have a great time as some kind of superhero or anti-hero'. But I would also look at something like that and say, 'Hey, in success that means »
Gus Van Sant’s Cannes Film Festival Competition entry The Sea Of Trees unspooled here over the weekend. Van Sant is no stranger to Cannes, having previously won the Palme d’Or with Elephant in 2003. Before the Sea Of Trees screening, he and I sat down on the Majestic Beach to talk about how the existential drama came together. His visit to Cannes the previous year to present it at project stage, with Matthew McConaughey in tow, helped sales company Bloom virtually sell… »
Back in November, Matthew McConaughey said he'd be down for a comic book movie and was reportedly being eyed to play Doctor Strange before Benedict Cumberbatch landed the role. But has he actually been approached by Marvel or DC about possibly starring in one of their films? It appears he has, as the actor recently told Variety that he's had talks with both Marvel and DC, and he has read some superhero film scripts. I’ve read some Marvel and DC scripts and »

Matthew McConaughey took a Zen approach when addressing the chorus of boos at the Cannes Film Festival that followed the premiere of his newest film, The Sea of Trees. The Sea of Trees premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last week, and, while booing isn’t necessarily associated with the movie-going experience in the Us, it […]
