Hollywood has always had a peculiar way of treating its artists. Usually after celebrating an initial spark of genius, the studios, media, or loyal fans often watch the once promising talent fizzle out with a bang, or more times, with a quiet whimper. Either way, it remains a difficult feat to stay relevant in Hollywood. Martin Scorsese is an example of the rare filmmaker who has been working for over forty years and continues to challenge himself while keeping audiences on their toes.

Over the past ten years Scorsese has released five films, four of which have gone on to be big Oscar contenders (Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, and Hugo). This year marks the release of his latest Oscar hopeful, The Wolf of Wall Street. After Scorsese »

This confirmed what Universal Pictures said all along that "...the scene was shot a bunch of different ways, and we have the best possible version."
The original scene featured Aniston going topless in front of TV news cameras.
"...'George' and 'Linda' are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George’s awful brother in Atlanta.
"On the way there, they stumble upon 'Elysium', an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. »

Nine years after the release of Frank Miller’s and Robert Rodriguez’ Sin City, the sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will be hitting cinemas in August 2014. The stylish and violent film received critical acclaim back in 2005 and fans are no doubt excited for the followup, which is again directed by Miller and Rodriguez and is adapted from the second book in Miller’s graphic novel series.
It now looks like we’re going to be getting even more Sin City, as The Weinstein Company’s Harvey Weinstein outlined his future plans in an interview with The New York Times. Believing that it will ‘add stability’ to his company, Weinstein is hungry for a piece of the delicious pie that is television, unsurprising thanks to the massive success of big-budget shows such as The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones. TWC have plans for a number of television series, »

We know that Robert Rodriguez is bringing one of his previous films to the small screen, with a TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn currently filming, and now it's being reported by The New York Times (via ComicBookMovie) that The Weinstein Company is looking to branch out into the TV business and could be planning a Sin City series to follow the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For next year.
Apparently, Sin City is one of several movies that Bob Weinstein is looking to adapt for TV, with Rodriguez is said to be involved alongside with comic book creator and co-director Frank Miller. Meanwhile, in addition to the previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, Weinstein is also said to be working with director Frank Darabont on a 10-part series based upon Darabont's 2007 feature adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Mist.

Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers! Whether you’re traveling to see relatives, hosting relatives who have traveled to see you, getting ready for the football games, or just preparing for the big holiday feast, I hope you are stay safe and enjoy yourselves. In the meantime, this Thanksgiving-week edition of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at one of my most anticipated family films of next year – Muppets Most Wanted.
Premise: While on a grand world tour, Kermit the Frog and the other Muppets find themselves unwillingly involved in a European jewel-heist caper headed by Constantine, a criminal mastermind and Kermit lookalike, and his dastardly sidekick Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais).
My take: As I imagine is the case for many people of my generation, I grew up loving the Muppets. I’ve seen their movies many times, Muppet Babies was one of my favorite cartoons when I was little, and The Muppet Christmas Carol »

Oliver Davis counts down the best ever casino films...
5. Ocean’s Eleven
It’s got more stars than a sky-gazing evening with Brian Cox, Ocean’s Eleven was a dream team-up movie with as-yet-unmatched ‘name’ power.
George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts…even Bernie Mac, the 2001 remake even surpassed Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.’s original. Flashy, Soderbergh-slick and with a twisting Las Vegas casino heist climax, Ocean’s Eleven was successful enough to spawn two sequels…which makes the current Ocean’s count around 36.
At the Casino Royale, James Bond (Daniel Craig) is up against Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) in a high-stakes game of poker. It’s so tense, the bad guy cries blood. Which is how all villains should weep.
The casino setting is a Bond movie staple, so it’s a smart convention to embrace for Craig’s first outing as the character. »

We told you recently that comics publisher Idw had created a production company to develop projects based on their comics. Today they announced one of those projects, and it sounds like it could be pretty great. It’s a TV series based on actor Michael Chiklis‘s (No Ordinary Family, The Shield) comic series Pantheon, about Greek gods in the modern day:
Idw Entertainment To Develop And Produce Michael Chiklis’s Pantheon
The Story of Greek Gods Resurfacing In Present Day
San Diego, CA (November 21, 2013) – Michael Chiklis has joined forces with Idw Entertainment to develop and produce his comic series Pantheon as a new scripted live-action television series. Idw Entertainment will fund the development of the project and will be co-produced with Circle of Confusion.
While the story of Pantheon is under wraps, it involves Greek Gods returning to the present day.
Slated as direct to series, Pantheon will boast Chiklis, »

Ben Affleck's enjoyed a career resurgence as well as internet ire of late. Here's a look at a few of his underappreciated films...
Ben Affleck doesn't need us. He's got a directorial career of three strong movies from three outings. He has a movie star spouse. He has two Oscars, one for both his downstairs and upstairs toilet, and he gets to tell his kids that he's Batman without having to lie. Furthermore, it's scary to think how good the boxset of his directorial work is going to be in 30 years' time.
But the resurgence of the Affleck, culminating in his Best Picture winning movie Argo, and his casting as Batman in Batman Vs Superman, overlooks the fact that his CV is hardly short of really good films, really good choices, and some really good performances. Whilst most of the press he's »
Between playing the outlandish Jean-Ralphio on NBC's Parks and Recreation and Clyde Oberholt on House of Lies, the multi-talented Ben Schwartz somehow found time to lend his voice to a snail named Skidmark in Turbo, currently available on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD. Skidmark is a part of the race crew who helps Turbo (Ryan Reynolds), a snail who gets blessed with amazing speed after falling through a car engine, realize his dream of racing in the Indianapolis 500. I recently had the chance to speak with this actor about his voice recording process, future projects, and much more. Here's what he had to say.
I have to imagine, for an actor, it must be a dream to play a character named Skidmark.

Disney has released two new trailers for Muppets Most Wanted. One is a domestic trailer, one is an international trailer. The movie looks like it will be fun, but it doesn't look as good as the last Muppet film.
Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, »

It doesn’t look very musical, but this is just the first trailer, and I’m not sure that a non-musical Muppets movie is a bad thing. I like that Muppets: Most Wanted is going a completely different direction. Here’s the first trailer starring Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and many many more.
Trailer: Muppets: Most Wanted
Muppets Most Wanted starring Tom Hiddleston, Tina Fey, Christoph Waltz, Debbie Ryan, Ross Lynch, Ricky Gervais, Danny Trejo, Ray Liotta, Ty Burrell, Frank Langella, Usher, and Sean Combs is slated to hit theaters March 21, 2014. »

Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and co. are back with Muppets Most wanted, and as this latest trailer shows, they are back in fine form. Their latest adventure sees Kermit replaced by his look-a-like, notorious jewel thief Constantine, who turns their world tour (including a not stereotypical at all trip to Ireland) into a front for daring heists. Ricky Gervais, Tina Fay, and Ty Burrell are along for the ride this time round, with plenty of celebrity cameos from the likes of Danny Trejo, Tom Hiddleston, Ray Liotta, and Zach Galifianakis. Check it out for yourself below. Released: 21st March 2014 (U.S.)/ 28th March 2014 (U.K.)/ 1st April 2014 (Irl) »

"It's not easy being mean." Following the underwhelming childish teaser trailer for Muppets Most Wanted earlier this year, the full theatrical trailer has arrived delivering more of what we expected from the Disney comedy sequel. This time we get a much better glimpse at the human stars in the film including Tina Fey as a prison guard, Salma Hayek caught up in the madness of a Muppet show and Ricky Gervais as an unfortunately named sidekick of the thief frog Constantine who is a dead wringer for Kermit the Frog. Plus there's quick shots of Ray Liotta, Celine Dion and P. Diddy. This looks like a hell of a lot of fun. Watch! Here's the full Us trailer for James Bobin's Muppets Most Wanted, originally from Yahoo: And here's the international trailer for the Muppets sequel, direct from Walt Disney Studios UK: Muppets Most Wanted is directed by James Bobin »

Disney has released a new trailer for director James Bobin's upcoming sequel Muppets Most Wanted. In the follow-up, the gang is on a successful tour in Europe but gets into trouble when Kermit gets confused with his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine. I really enjoyed 2011's The Muppets, but almost everything I'm seeing from this sequel is doing nothing for me. It's not a bad premise, and it's amusing to see Constantine try to impersonate Kermit, but it's still a fairly tired plot and there's almost none of the irreverence or wackiness I'd expect to see from a Muppet movie. Here's hoping it's just a bad trailer and not a bad movie. Hit the jump check out the new trailer and images, and find out about some of the cameos. The film stars Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, and Ty Burrell. Muppets Most Wanted opens March 21, 2014. Via Yahoo! Movies. Yahoo! Movies also »

"It's not easy... being mean."
The world's foremost criminal mastermind, Constantine, is small and felt and green all over. And he looks just like Kermit the frog, which is good news for this bad guy and bad news for our good guy because Constantine escaped from prison and guess who's going to take his place?
After Constantine and his evil sidekick Dominic (Ricky Gervais) pull off a master heist, Kermie is set up for the crime. Our little green friend is sent to what looks like a rather rough Russian prison. His prison guard, Nadya, is not one to be trifled with, although we suspect some delicious night cheese could sway her. (Because she's played by Tina Fey, you see.) Luckily, there's an Interpol agent named Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell) on the case.
How long will it take Gary the Muppet and the rest of the gang to realize »

I have no idea why this trailer for Killing Them Softly was banned, but Annapurna Pictures just tweeted it out and considering it was one of my absolute favorites of last year and the fact director Andrew Dominik is receiving some much deserved attention as of late, not only for this film but also for the resurgence of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, I felt I must share it. amz asin="B009AMALBM" size="small"If you have yet to see Killing Them Softly, first off "shame", secondly it's an adaptation of George V. Higgins' novel following professional enforcer, Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high stakes, mob-protected, poker game. The film also features Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, Vincent Curatola, Max Casella, Sam Shepard and Bella Heathcote.
