18 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.

From what I have seen so far it looks promising but then so did Hemlock Grove. Expect a full report next week. In related news, Netflix have announced a whole slate of stand-up comedy exclusive to its service after the success of the recent Aziz Ansari special. So the likes of Chelsea Handler, Jim Jefferies, Bill Cosby, Bill Burr and Chelsea Peretti will be adding stand up shows to streaming between now and December. I have only heard of a couple of these acts but there again one of the best things to do with an hour to spare is browse Netflix for its plentiful supply of stand-up »

Eternal 'Expendables:' Mma Fighters Battle to Break Through in Hollywood

15 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of Guardians of the Galaxy's theatrical release, I wrote about the Curse of Tor Johnson, named after the old-school wrestler (and Ed Wood muse) who may have also been responsible for 50 years of terrible performances from professional wrestlers.

Since I wrote for WWE's Monday Night Raw for about six months, I wondered if the presence of Dave Bautista, a former champion, would jinx Guardians' box-office mojo. Three weeks into its theatrical run (and more than $175 million in receipts later), it's safe to say the Curse has been broken. »

'Mortdecai' Trailer: Johnny Depp Rocks a Fantastic Mustache

13 August 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In David Koepp’s spy comedy Mortdecai, Johnny Depp plays a dapper James Bond type (an art dealer by trade) whose good looks and roguish charm are his only weapons during the hunt to recover a stolen painting. He also has a “man servant” named Jock Strapp (Paul Bettany). Fine, Depp. You win this round. How can we refuse? The film is adapted from the Mortdecai Trilogy written by Kyril Bonfiglioli — who was actually an art dealer in a former life. The books have been compared to the works of P. G. Wodehouse, particularly the Jeeves-Wooster novels. The gimmick seems to fall somewhere above the outright ridiculousness of the Austin Powers series. Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Olivia Munn and Aubrey Plaza also star. Mortdecai hits theaters...

Watch: Johnny Depp In New Teaser Trailer For ‘Mortdecai’

13 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve got to wait till 2015 for the delightful Johnny Depp to reach our big screens in David Koepp’s comedy crime movie, Mortdecai. But luckily, there’s a new teaser to keep us occupied in the meantime.

The feature’s adapted from a series of ’70s novels by Kyril Bonfiglioli. Mortdecai follows Depp as Charlie Mortdecai, an aristocratic, dodgy art dealer, and various japes he gets into involving MI5, angry Russians, beautiful women, stolen paintings and Nazi gold. A bit like Bond meeting Lovejoy, and then going on a road trip with Indiana Jones in a Carry On film?

Watch your teaser here:

Mortdecai arrives in cinemas February 2015. It also stars Aubrey PlazaGwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, with Jeff Goldblum, and Paul Bettany.

Johnny Depp is Kinda a Charming Moron in First Mortdecai Trailer

13 August 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

David Koepp’s “Mortdecai,” starring Johnny Depp as some kind of dimwitted but rich British dude named Mortdecai, might actually be pretty good. Or at least, pretty kooky. But I doubt if it’ll do very much business at the box office unless Depp breaks out the mascara and start swaying around saying, “Arrrgh, me pirate booty!” Or some such. But personally, I think it looks interesting. Even funny. If nothing else, Paul Bettany’s reaction to being called a manservant is priceless. Sunday afternoon viewing, perhaps? Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

A moustachioed Johnny Depp is Mortdecai in teaser trailer

12 August 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Johnny Depp is adding Charlie Mortdecai to his extensive resume of off-beat characters if our first look at the teaser for Mortdecai is any indication. And Tim Burton is nowhere to be found.

Depp re-teams with his Secret Window director David Koepp as he stars as the titular Mortdecai, a dimwitted art dealer on a global search to recover a stolen painting which just happens to hold the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold. 

 

The teaser for the quirky caper sees a moustachioed and accented Depp who looks like he watched more than a few Peter Sellers’ performances to get into character.  The trailer focuses mostly on Depp here, but we do get to see brief glimpses of his co-stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Goldblum, Olivia Munn, and Paul Bettany.  Aubrey Plaza and Oliver Platt also star in the movie which opens in theatres »
