Shia Labeouf, Uma Thurman, Stacy Martin, Jamie Bell, Connie Nielsen, Christian Slater, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth, Nicolas Bro, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Jens Albinus and Udo Kier also feature in the film.

Movie Stars Who Bombed on the Small Screen

View Photo Gallery

With movie ticket sales declining, quality television has taken its place as the cool kids table in the cafeteria. The hottest, most feted actors in all of celebdom are clamoring to get cast on the small screen — and it’s not just TV actors. Movie stars want in on the compelling scripts and genius ensemble casts, too. And it’s a win-win for television execs (who wouldn’t want the instant recognizability and built-in audience that a big screen star would bring to their series?). The only issue? For every Alec Baldwin, Zooey Deschanel, or Matthew McConaughey, you have a Christina Ricci, Christian Slater, or Ashley Judd — all of whom starred on series (or multiple series) that bombed spectacularly.

From Whoopi Goldberg‘s groan-tastic 2003 sitcom to Dustin Hoffman‘s PETA-protested HBO series, Luck, let’s take stroll through television’s Land of Failed Movie Star Vehicles, shall we? »

No Holds Barred Nymphomaniac Director’s Cut Is Five Hours Long, Out In October

16 September 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More often than not, when a studio releases a director’s cut of a film, it’s met with positive feedback from the audience. A chance to peek behind the curtain to see the filmmaker’s vision in its pure, untainted form. For Nymphomaniac, though — Lars Von Trier’s unflinching opus about the life of a sex addict — things might be a little, well, different.

Nevertheless, the renown Danish director is set to release his own five-and-a-half-hour-long director’s cut of the film — which was originally split into two volumes in every territory bar Denmark — alongside Nymphomaniac’s upcoming VOD release on October 2nd.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Von Trier is also planning to screen the uncut version “at special festival events across North America, as well as in several European countries including Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic and in Trier’s native Denmark.”

In essence, Nymphomaniac »

5 And A Half Hour Director’s Cut Of Lars Von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’ Set For October U.S. Release

16 September 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I haven’t had the ‘pleasure’ of watching either of director Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac as yet, but I did manage to catch most of the clips leading up to release. None shocked me more than the 23-second ‘director’s cut’ teaser that debuted just over a couple of weeks ago. I’m not easily shocked, and truly believe that I’m quite liberal, but this is very, very hard stuff. It really does not get much more Nc-17 than this, a rating I’m sure that it will receive upon release, which we’re told will be in October. The release will be both in cinemas, and VOD, and will also expand to Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic and Denmark. Notice the exclusion of the UK in that list. I really don’t know how they’re going to get around the, let’s face it, pornographic content over here. »

Raw Footage From "Nymphomaniac"

9 September 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more Nsfw footage from the two-part dramatic feature film "Nymphomaniac", starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Uma Thurman, Mia Goth, Shia Labeouf, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater and Connie Nielsen:

"...'Joe' (Gainsbourg), who is a self-diagnosed 'nymphomaniac' sex addict, is found by 'Seligman' (Skarsgård) beaten in an alley. 

"Seligman takes her home to care for her, and Joe recounts the story of her life, from birth to the age of 50..."

"We are making two films", said the movie's producer.

"It is a big operation...We will shoot both and edit both – and we want to finish both at the same time."

There will also be two versions of each film: an 'explicit' cut and a 'softer' cut.

"The movie is what you think it is," said former "Transformers" star Labeouf.

"For instance, there's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real. »

With Shocking Abortion Scene Restored, ‘Nymphomaniac’ Makes Venice Fest Most Daring

9 September 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If the 2014 festival circuit were a contest — and why shouldn’t it be, since these lofty-minded sprocket operas pit the directors whose work they screen in competition against one another? — then the Venice film festival emerges the winner. That will come as sacrilege to some, who consider Cannes the undisputed titan among international film showcases. And it may baffle the Oscar-obsessed, who look to Telluride and Toronto for indications of what will win Academy Awards.

This year, the litmus test came down to which fest would land the director’s cut of Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac.” And Venice scored the coup, programming the 5-hour-and-25-minute atom bomb of a movie amid a lineup that included stellar new films from Alejandro G. Inarritu (“Birdman”), Roy Andersson (“A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence”), Ramin Bahrani (“99 Homes”) and Larry Clark (whose “The Smell of Us” is like a French “Kids”).

In a Nutshell: Way Of The Wicked

7 September 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

"When the sons of the fallen came upon the daughters of men they bore the way of the wicked." An opening gambit that reads infinitely more interesting than the tagline for Kevin Carraway's latest low-budget horror movie. 'Evil Never Dies', anyone? Is that a fact? Well, as the filmmakers so eloquently put it, evil never dies but film careers do. Remember when Christian Slater was the epitome of cool? Now he's playing heroic priests in inexplicably dull horror movies. Remember when Vinnie Jones had the world at his feet? Ok, so that's a bit of a stretch, but Vinnie Jones stars alongside Slater in the straight-to-dvd feature that riffs on The Omen and Carrie. Here's a twist for you. Christian Slater plays a holier than thou priest and Vinnie Jones plays the part of a doting father. He's still a cop of course but the role of »

This teaser for the Nymphomaniac director's cut is way beyond Nsfw

5 September 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

By now, most of you on this site have heard of Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac. For a while, the film starring Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Shia Labeouf, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christian Slater, and many others was set to be released in a hardcore and a softcore version. Instead, we got a two volume release that was chock full of sexual deviancy. Now, get ready for something much, much more explicit.

Nymphomaniac: Director’S Cut Teaser Breaks the Nsfw Barrier

4 September 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lars von Trier’s sexual epic Nymphomaniac was split into two parts upon its initial release (as Nymphomaniac: Volume I and Nymphomaniac: Volume II), it was also edited for content.  Though Von Trier gave his consent for that edit, he still held onto his plans to make a director’s cut of the film entitled Nymphomaniac: Director’s Cut.  And it looks like he’s prepping that cut for release, if this teaser is any indication.  Also, I need to tell you right now hat this teaser is Nsfw.  You may think you know Nsfw by now, but you don’t.  This kind of breaks both the Nsfw barrier and my own brain when it comes to the amount of sexual content that can be crammed into 20 seconds. Hit the jump to watch the teaser and click here to read Matt’s review of Volume I and here for his review of Volume II. »

‘Way of the Wicked’ Review

2 September 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Christian Slater, Vinnie Jones, Jake Croker, Emily Tennant, Aren Buchholz, Matthew Robert Kelly, Brittney Wilson, Jedidiah Goodacre, Jillian Fargey, Chris Shields, Anna Galvin, Sydney Waack, Ryan Grantham | Written by Matthew Robert Kelly | Directed by Kevin Carraway

Sometimes you see actors turn up in movies and you just know what to expect.  I find though that to be fair to the film I look to be pleasantly surprised, and sometimes I even am…but this tends to be rare.  Way of the Wicked stars Christian Slater and Vinnie Jones and for fans of bad movies I don’t really need to say much more than that do I?

When Robbie (Jake Croker) returns to the town where he was once implicated in the death of a classmate it’s not long before another student dies.  Detective John Elliot (Vinnie Jones) begins to suspect Robbie as being to blame, especially when »

What The O.C.'s Seth Cohen did for geekdom

31 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Seth Cohen's character in The O.C. was much more than just a nerd punch-line, Wil argues, he paved the way for comic-book movie success...

We all have touchstones in adolescent life that end up shaping who we become. I’m sure we all share a few of them. Maybe it’s Holden Caulfield. Maybe it’s Kurt Cobain. Maybe it’s The Smiths or Fight Club or Ghost World. All of those had an effect on me, but I’m not ashamed to say that the one who had the biggest effect was Seth Cohen, a character in the early 2000s Fox teen soap opera The O.C.

Seth Cohen was awesome. He was awkward and read Chuck Klosterman and drew superheroes and wore the coolest t-shirts. He brought comic books, twee indie rock and snarky internet knowingness to a show few would associate with geekiness, and blasted all those things into the mainstream. »

Ten Best: Extreme Weather Films

14 August 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

To celebrate the release of Into the Storm, hitting UK cinemas on the 20th August, we have put together our favourite extreme weather films.

The Perfect Storm

This film reminds us that all extreme weather is 100 times worse when experienced at sea. The Perfect Storm is about the crew of the Andrea Gail, a small sword boat that fishes for swordfish.  The crew decide to ignore weather warnings and risk one last fishing expedition, after a poor season of catch. Little do the crew know, they are heading into the perfect storm, one they are unlikely to survive. Watching this film will show you how far visual effects have come since it was released in 2000. However, as it stars George Clooney, we can forget the visual effects in favour of watching his face.

The Day After Tomorrow

The Day after Tomorrow is one big lesson about global warming and a »

28 Things We Learned from ‘The Legend of Billie Jean’ Commentary

7 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s been a lot of talk recently regarding the lack of female superhero films in general and the lack of great ones in particular, but I’d argue the singular fun one has been sitting right in front of us since the mid-eighties. And it stars Helen Slater in the title role. And it’s not Supergirl. The Legend of Billie Jean is about a young woman who stands up for truth and justice, changes into a sexy costume (of sorts), has sidekicks and a nemesis and even has her own catchphrase in “Fair is fair!” It’s cheesier than a constipated cow, but the story and character beats deliver fun and excitement all set to a catchy ’80s soundtrack. The supporting cast is a roster of familiar faces in Christian Slater, Yeardley Smith, Peter Coyote, Keith Gordon and Dean Stockwell, but the film belongs to Helen Slater. The film just hit Blu-ray a few weeks »

Adam Reed Talks Post 'Vice'-Era "Archer"

26 July 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

FX returned to Comic Con this year to show off the sixth season premiere of "Archer" and host a Q&A panel with the cast and crew.

Following last year's "Archer Vice" experiment, the team is now back to spying this time out and have returned to Isis - or rather a 'digitized version' of their spy office. Lana’s baby is also in tow.

Creator Adam Reed spoke about the return to more familiar surroundings, saying "We treated Season 5 as a vacation. We’re happy to be home, and we’re excited to get back to what we normally do after a fun summer of cocaine."

While he joked "we ran out of cocaine," he did indicate events in 'Vice' will have ongoing consequences in the upcoming season. Isis will be working with the CIA more in the new season, so Christian Slater's character Slater will be returning on a regular basis. »

Comic-Con: Creator Adam Reed Talks Archer Season 6 Villain, Guest Spots by Allison Tolman and Christian Slater, Laffy Taffy, and More

26 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Just a short while before their Comic-Con panel, we took part in roundtable interviews with the cast and crew of FX’s animated spy spoof Archer. Show creator and executive producer Adam Reed is coming right off a risky and ultimately brilliant fifth season in which the show’s intelligence agency turns bad, leading to a temporary renaming of the show as Archer Vice. We discussed obscure references to the creator of watermelon, both upcoming and dream guest stars, as well as a reveal for the primary villain in Archer Season 6. Hit the jump for the full interview. Reed: [picking up a piece of Laffy Taffy abandoned on the table] Oh my gosh. Are these free? Can we have these? Of course! Reed: Thank you. I love Laffy Taffy. World’s worst jokes. All right, I can’t even that, I don’t have my glasses, but. [turns the Laffy Taffy over] Oh, they’re riddles! [takes the glasses someone offers up] …Nope, I got nothing. Say your name, for the recorder? »
