'Max Steel' Stars Ben Winchell & Ana Villafane Talk About Their New Superhero Flick, How They Got Their Chemistry [Exclusive]

19 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Ben Winchell and Ana Villafane both star in Max Steel, a new superhero feature adapted from lesser-known comic book that was inspired by a Mattel toy.

'Max Steel' Exclusive

In Max Steel, Winchell plays the titular role – half teenage boy (Max), half alien (Steel). It’s this duality of his character that Winchell believes sets him apart from all of the other superheroes that have recently been recreated in films.

“What makes them unique and what makes it different from every other superhero I feel has been out there is, if Max didn't have Steel, Max wouldn't be a superhero,” Winchell explained to uInterview. “Max is just a kid who has this energy running through him, that if he didn't have Steel there with him he would just explode and die. Which is terrible. But Steel is there Max has this energy that flows through him that if »

New Pictures from 'Kill the Messenger' Starring Jeremy Renner

19 August 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Focus Features has just released five new pictures from Michael Cuesta's upcoming dramatic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Based on the true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb (played by Renner), Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation's streets...and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. - and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life. »

Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris And Andy Garcia In Talks For Geostorm

18 August 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The absolutely bonkers-sounding Geostorm may be about to transform from a Gerard Butler sci-fi actioner into a star-studded sci-fi blockbuster. Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind) and Andy Garcia (The Godfather Part III) are reportedly all in talks for major roles in the pic, which aims to blend elements of a political thriller and an effects-heavy disaster epic.

Butler stars as a gruff but likable satellite designer who, after the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, is forced to team up with his estranged brother (Sturgess) to save the world from a man-made storm of epic proportions. However, as the designer heads into space, his brother discovers a nefarious plot to assassinate the president and plunge the world into even deeper chaos.

If they come aboard, Cornish will play a Secret Service agent, the girlfriend of Butler’s protagonist. Harris will play the secretary of »

Are you ready for Geostorm? Hell, not even We're ready for Geostorm, because we can't yet convey in text the echo effect the title has when it escapes our mouths. Geostorm, the wildest, wackiest, most delightful space saga you've ever heard, is headed to theaters. And now they've added a pretty crackerjack collection of names to the cast. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Warner Bros. are in talks with Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia to get wrapped up in the Geostorm.

I just checked it out and thought it was quite entertaining and hilarious, delivering a ton of laughs, drama, suspense and more. It stars: Damon Wayans Jr., Jake Johnson, Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D'Arcy and Andy Garcia. In the new film, characters ,Ryan (Jake Johnson) and Justin (Damon Wayans Jr.), are feeling pretty down about their careers are the lack there of. Ryan is a former football star that got injured, and Justin is a struggling video game creator with a shortage on confidence. Eventually, they show up at a masquerade party in full cop costumes, because Ryan thought a masquerade party was the same as a costume party. After getting shunned from that event, they found themselves being able to command unusual amounts of attention as everyone thought they were real cops. They »

Movie Review – Let’s Be Cops (2014)

13 August 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Let’s Be Cops, 2014.

Directed by Luke Greenfield.

Starring Damon Wayans Jr., Jake Johnson, Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D’Arcy, Keegan-Michael Key and Andy Garcia.

Synopsis:

Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.

I am told that our pretend cop co-stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. have some incredible comedic chemistry together on the hit sitcom New Girl, and after watching Let’s Be Cops that is a statement I am inclined to believe. Simply put, their camaraderie is the only thing holding the film together from crumbling down into a total disaster. The core of those problems come from director and writer Luke Greenfield, a.k.a. the talentless schmuck that directed The Animal starring Rob Schneider. »

Film Review: ‘Let’s Be Cops’ Unoriginally Repeats Old Formulas

13 August 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The premise is sound, but the new film “Let’s Be Cops” refuses to do something original with the premise of a couple of regular Joes pretending to be Johnny Law. The same stale jokes and inevitable need for heroic action climax overwhelms the mild amusement of it all.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Jokes about horny boys, marijuana, horny ladies, mistaken identities and obsession with ridiculous minutiae – like having the boys involved in a “case” – limit the enjoyment of the two lead actors. Damon Wayans Jr. handles smart comedy much better than the physical or character variety, and is miscast, and his partner Jake Johnson practically sweats blood to deliver the scenario, going off in directions that quite frankly would have him spend jail time in the real world. Will there be a wacky arrest that the fakers have to do? Yes, and it will be extreme, though bizarrely funny. In essence, »

Film Review: ‘Let’s Be Cops’

13 August 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The mix of raucous buffoonery and violent mayhem isn’t exactly seamless, and the laugh-out-loud moments come with conspicuously less frequency during a third act that suggests a rough draft for “Bad Boys 3.” Still, “Let’s Be Cops” should generate solid late-summer box office, if only because of trailers and TV spots that smartly exploit the sporadically hilarious funny business in helmer Luke Greenfield’s farce about underachievers who boost their self-esteem by pretending to be Lapd patrolmen. Relatively restrained by the contemporary standards of R-rated raunch, the film could conceivably reach beyond its young-male target demographic during theatrical play and homescreen afterlife.

Employing a premise that was played far more seriously in Canadian filmmaker David Wellington’s 1993 feature, “I Love a Man in Uniform,” Greenfield and co-scripter Nicholas Thomas briskly establish the discontent of their two leads in the opening scenes. Ryan (Jake Johnson of TV’s “New Girl »
