Seth Rogen and James Franco have a very unusual conversation about Matthew McConaughey and a goat in the red band trailer for the controversial comedy The Interview. The latest trailer offers a new look at Rogen and Franco's characters' hijinks before they get sent to North Korea to assassinate Kim Jong Un. This apparently involves the repeated smelling of their fingers. Rob Lowe also shows up in a cameo, looking quite different than the way he typically does. The film was co-directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, based on a script they wrote with David Sterling (Girls). Lizzy Caplan co-

It looks like Dallas took his last dance in “Magic Mike.”
Director Greg Jacobs, who’s taking over the franchise for Steven Soderbergh, told IndieWire that the Oscar winner won’t hit the road with returnees Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Alex Pettyfer in the film’s latest installment.
“It’s a road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel,” he told IndieWire. “No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”

Here we are, another week has passed, and it's time for another edition of 10 Stories You Might Have Missed. Sure, reports say that Matthew McConaughey isn't going to be in "Magic Mike Xxl," but there is also news of a couple of fresh faces joining the franchise, namely Amber Heard and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Ah, but what will their roles be? Elsewhere, as you probably know, Warner Brothers has several unnamed DC Comics projects on their upcoming slate, complete with release dates. Could one of those projects be a "Suicide Squad" movie featuring Harley Quinn? Could that movie be directed by "End of Watch" and "Fury" director David Ayer? Could be, could be. Plus, some music news, like Johnny Depp jamming with Ryan Adams on a Dio tune, and Kanye West may be collaborating with... Lorde? Check it all out here: »

So...how about a new trailer, Warner Bros.? All week, the studio has been dropping new posters for Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," a movie we believe could factor into the Oscar race if it turns out to be as good as we think it might. Anyway, until we actually see the thing, this poster will have to suffice. And...spoilers? Probably not, but it looks like Matthew McConaughey and his astronaut crew leave Earth and land on a very watery new world, one that they hope will be humanity's salvation. That's right, because back home, the soil has been ravaged, food is scarce and things are looking grim, so it's up to a canny band of explorers to set things right. Co-starring Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, and David Gyasi, "Interstellar" arrives on November 7th. And there »

Paramount Pictures continues its marketing campaign for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated new film by unveiling yet another new Interstellar poster—the fourth such one-sheet of the week. While the first two posters were a diptych of sorts, showing Matthew McConaughey on an ice planet and back on Earth, respectively, the third poster focused on space at large. This fourth and presumably final poster (of this week, at least) sees McConaughey trekking through yet another uncharted planet, knee-deep in a liquid substance (water?) while the gorgeous heavens paint the sky above him. I’m wary of seeing too much footage from the film before it hits theaters, so if Paramount wants to just continue releasing posters that tease the epic scope and locations of the film without getting into plot, that would be fine by me. Take a look at the new Interstellar poster after the jump. The film opens »

There's a limit to how much Matthew McConaughey can be featured on posters for a single movie, it seems. This week appears to be "Interstellar" one-sheet week, with two arriving so far featuring the actor walking on a planet and looking up at the stars, and now comes another, which boldly puts no one from the starry cast on it at all. Sorry, Topher Grace! Instead, this one brings us the athletic-shoe-style slogan "Go Further," with a space thingy moving at tremendous speed towards the edge of the galaxy. Why? Because we all ruined the Earth, and now, the last resort is to go to outer space to find another planet that humanity can destroy live on. Or something like that. Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, and David Gyasi are joining McConaughey on his voyage. "Insterstellar" opens on November 7th. »

Matthew McConaughey‘s stripping days are behind him. The Oscar winner's publicist told TheWrap that he will not return for the “Magic Mike” sequel, because his schedule did not permit due to his involvement in Gus Van Sant‘s upcoming drama “Sea of Trees.” See video: Watch Alex Pettyfer Panic When Confronted by Actual Tough Guys on Venice Beach Although his representative added that this is “old news,” McConaughey's definite departure from “Magic Mike Xxl” began circulating on the web on Wednesday after The Playlist published an article citing director Greg Jacobs as the source of the news.

Another Interstellar poster has gone online, and it's the prettiest of the bunch so far. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.” The most recent trailer gave us a hint of how gorgeous the space scenes will be, and this poster is another glimpse at that promise. It also doesn't have a tagline that mixes the hope of discovery with the reminder that we're all going to die unless we leave Earth. Hit the jump to check out the new Interstellar poster. The film opens in 2D and IMAX on November 7th, and also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, »

It’s September, so why wouldn’t we start predicting an Oscar race that won’t finish for another five months?
To be fair, Venice, Telluride, and the Toronto film festivals have all concluded. Many films have screened. Many films have connected with audiences, and a rough draft of the Oscar race is beginning to come into focus. Sure, no Academy member will even begin popping in those screener DVDs for another couple of months, but it’s still worth discussing what has buzz and what is likely to still be on voters’ minds once the weather finally begins to cool off. »

It's not alright, alright, alright.

Jacobs, who took the reins for Magic Mike Xxl from the first installment's director, Steven Soderbergh, confirmed to IndieWire that the second Magic Mike movie will be decidedly McConaughey-free.

Tragic news for fans of Matthew McConaughey in assless chaps (so, all of us): According to an interview in The Playlist with Magic Mike Xxl director Greg Jacobs, McConaughey will not be reprising his role as Dallas in the forthcoming sequel to 2012's smash hit Magic Mike.
