Best of Late Night TV: Ryan Reynolds Plays 'Egg Russian Roulette,' Cate Blanchett Finally Explains '#SuckIt' (Video)

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jimmy Fallon had himself a busy Monday night on "The Tonight Show," playing games with Ryan Reynolds and Kelly Clarkson and talking to Terrence Howard about the "Empire" star's (hilarious, in hindsight) Oscars flub.

Jimmy referenced how Kelly said it's been hard for her to find people to do duets with, so Jimmy sang a medley of duets with her. Moving on to Ryan, Jimmy played "Egg Russian Roulette" with Mr. Reynolds. They had to smash eggs on the tops of their heads without knowing which ones were raw. In his sit-down interview, Ryan did a pretty great Aaron Neville impression and said he thinks his baby girl might be allergic to sleep, »

1 March 2015 4:10 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass horror movie arrives comatose (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') (See previous post: "'Focus': Will Smith Has One of Worst Opening Weekends of His Career.") Despite recent news that human head transplants are a mere two years away, the Mark Duplass-Olivia Wilde horror movie The Lazarus Effect – about bringing the dead back to life (as if world overpopulation weren't already a problem) – grossed $10.6 million from 2,666 U.S. and Canada venues on opening weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The Relativity Studios-distributed low-budget horror flick had earned an estimated $3.8 million on opening-day Friday, including $350,000 from Thursday night screenings. Last week, box-office prognosticators had been expecting an opening between $12-$14 million. That was adjusted downward to $10 million or whereabouts after the film's disappointing Friday debut.

Dominic West Joins Jodie Foster And George Clooney In Money Monster

26 February 2015 4:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Enjoying the award-winning success of his latest television series, The Affair, Dominic West is set to capitalize on that exposure by joining the high profile Money Monster – a dramatic thriller to be directed by Jodie Foster, for TriStar Pictures. The script for the movie comes from Alan Difiore (The Bridge), Jim Kouf (Grimm) and Jamie Linden (10 Years), and has George Clooney pulling double duty as producer and star.

Clooney will play Lee Gates – the influential host of a stock investment television show, who gets a report wrong and causes a previously buoyant stock to plummet. An unhappy, armed investor forces his way into the studio while the show is live on air, and threatens the life of the host – demanding he undo the damage he has done and make the stock rise back to profitable levels before the closing bell.

West has joined the project as the CEO of the stricken company, »

Every Day I'm Hustling: Film’s 10 most memorable con artists

25 February 2015 2:17 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Big Willy’s latest big screen outing makes its way to the multiplex this month. In Focus, Smith plays the consummate con man, a smooth operator who liberates people of their wealth with the help of a Margot Robbie-shaped femme fatale.

The duo of tricksters aren’t the first con artists to grace the silver screen however. So from pool sharks and grifters to tricksters, card cheats and American hustlers; here’s our rundown of the most memorable con artists in movie history.

 

Fast Eddie Felson – The Hustler (1961)

One of the finest fraudster films to ever grace the multiplex; The Hustler stars Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson, a pool shark intent on toppling legendary cue-man Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). With its smoky sets, stunning black and white cinematography and superb performances from Newman and Gleason; the film is just as good today as it was on its release more than 50 years ago. »

Stx Entertainment Dates Films With Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Jason Blum

25 February 2015 10:47 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Less than a year after it launched, Stx Entertainment has announced release dates for four films starring the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Jason Bateman, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman.

Dominic West Confronts Money Monster

25 February 2015 10:30 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Not, as you could conceivably imagine, a CGI-laden thriller about a mountain of notes and coins that comes to life and terrorises people in a bank, Money Monster is instead Jodie Foster’s new drama, which will star George Clooney and Julia Roberts. And given that he’ll have time off between his current TV commitments, Dominic West will join them.Money Monster features Clooney as Lee Gates, a loud, gregarious financial TV host who offers up stock advice on his eponymous hit cable TV show in a style that would probably make Robert Peston blanch. Roberts will be Nancy Fenn, the director and executive producer of the show, who might also be closer to Gates.Also on board the drama? Jack O’Connell, playing Kyle Budwell, a blue-collar worker sick of the damage still being done by Wall Street. With a growing family to support, he decides to take »

Tom Rothman on New Sony Pictures Job: ‘I Love a Challenge’

24 February 2015 5:18 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Rothman takes over Sony Pictures as the studio is trying to revitalize and relaunch key franchises such as “Ghostbusters” and “Spider-Man.”

It’s an experience that the former Fox Filmed Entertainment chief is familiar with, because when he assumed leadership at that studio in 2000, it had yet to mount many of its biggest series and reboots, such as “X-Men” and “Planet of the Apes.”

His ability to replenish Fox’s blockbuster cupboard, as well as his ties to A-list talent such as Ang Lee, George Clooney and Jodie Foster, is a major reason he was selected to run Sony over such potential candidates as production chief Michael De Luca and motion picture group president Doug Belgrad, according to individuals with knowledge.

“Every studio needs franchises,” Rothman told Variety. “That was the case when we took over at Fox and that took time to build it up and it will take time here. »

20 Actors Who Could Be Real Life Disney Characters

20 February 2015 12:58 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros./Disney

Many Disney adaptations have already tried placing actors in the roles of live action counterparts, but they haven’t always been on the money. Angelina Jolie did a remarkable job stepping into Maleficent’s cloak, but Julia Roberts as Mirror Mirror’s Queen or Helena Bonham-Carter as Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother? Not so much.

It seems that Disney’s Maleficent has triggered production on an influx of live action Disney classics that will soon be seen on the silver screen. Given that 2014’s Sleeping Beauty adaptation has set the bar rather high for those yet to come, it has never been more important to get the casting spot on.

Into The Woods chose Anna Kendrick to play Cinderella, whereas Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming feature thinks Lily James a better fit for the princess. But perhaps the young and vibrant Jennifer Lawrence deserves the glass slipper?
