During its fledgling years as a film studio, the Walt Disney Company helped revolutionize the nature documentary with its True-Life Adventure series. Here, as never before, audiences could thrill to the story of seals, beavers, bears, tigers, and the rest of the creatures sharing space with us on Earth. These days, what is most striking about these early documentaries is less the physical ground they cover, and more that they come from a patient time in filmmaking. Documentaries like The Living Desert and Seal Island featured narration and music, and sometimes attempted to play up the humor of an animalistic situation, but they were still created by people who afforded their presumed audience a base level of intelligence. In some respects, these nature documentaries were born out of the insistence on »

Who are today's equivalent of Laurel and Hardy or Abbott and Costello or Martin and Lewis or Cheech and Chong or even Farley and Spade? With the news that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are reteaming for another movie, following up their hit collaborations in Talladega Nights and Step Brothers with Border Guards, maybe they're the closest thing we've got. And in a way theirs is a trio if we include Adam McKay, the director behind all three of their pairings. Others that I can think of are Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who also have a directorial third in Edgar Wright, though they've also done movies together without him (namely Paul). More and more, they're doing their own separate thing -- mostly Pegg is doing a lot of blockbuster work -- which is too bad...

Since 2009’s Earth, Disney’s nature documentary division has done a fine job forgetting about anthropomorphized animated animals and offering some delightful looks at the everyday life of the creatures that inspired their company’s best films. The formula is not fading, either, as 2014’s entry, Bears, arrives just in time to make you forget about the annoyances of computer-generated animals in recent films like The Nut Job and Rio 2.
Bears has the bare necessities that any fan of the studio’s nature docs expect: a stunning environment, a riveting survivalist plot and very, very cute animals. It also has John C. Reilly taking up duties as the doc’s playful narrator, and none of the film is soured by preachy environmentalist overtones.
The doc tells the story of a mama brown bear, Sky, and her oh-so-adorable young cubs Scout and Amber, as they trek through the Alaska Peninsula »

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are one of the better comedy duos in the game today, with notable appearances together in Talladega Nights and Step Brothers, not to mention Reilly’s hilarious and bizarre cameo in Anchorman 2 as the ghost of Stonewall Jackson. Now the two men will team up once again with their Talladega Nights and Step Brothers director Adam Mckay, […]

When Anchorman 2 was announced, the Adam McKay and Will Ferrell collaboration was a blessing for fans of the original film. Sure, another Anchorman movie meant that Ron Burgundy, Champ, Brian and the whole gang would be back for a new adventure after years of anticipation, but it also meant something truly terrible: a sequel to Step Brothers would never happen. The Ferrell and John C. Reilly film, in which two 40-something screw-ups are forced to move in together after their parents get married and then subsequently become best friends, is one of the finest comedies of our times — I’ve waxed poetic about its greatness before — and after the lackluster continuation of Ron Burgundy’s story, the fact that we wouldn’t be able to hear another refrain of “Boats ‘n Hoes” only hit harder. But today’s news is sweetening that bitterness just a little bit with word that Ferrell and Reilly are teaming up »

Will and John have been seen together before in movies like Step Brothers and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. Now, they're teaming up again with their friend and director Adam McKay in Border Guards.
The two actors will be playing to border patrol agents who accidentally find themselves stuck in Mexico with no identification. Formerly set up to prevent just anyone from entering the United States, now the two guards find themselves at the other end of the stick, and have to sneak their way back into the country without getting caught.
No word on a release date for Border Guards has been set, but you can bet we'll have all the details as they develop. We'll also keep »

Are you confused by Marvel's upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy"? A (very) brief new featurette wants to reassure casual fans that -- although there's more comedy and space-set action this time around -- "Galaxy" is still part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And famous people like Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper are in it (at least their voices are). Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige tells us that while "Galaxy" is part of that universe, it "takes it to the next level," mixing more overtly sci-fi elements with superhero lore. Star Zoe Saldana adds, "it's not a typical superhero movie," meaning no one will mistake it for "The Avengers," although the two franchises are connected via the intergalactic villain Thanos ?as well as that mid-credits scene in "Thor: The Dark World." Instead of do-gooders like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, the Guardians are a group of reluctant heroes made up of thieves, »

Multihyphenate Tilda Swinton can now add DJ to her ever-growing list of roles in the entertainment biz.
Swinton guest DJ’ed on Santa Monica public radio station Kcrw on Wednesday, sharing music that served as inspiration on the set of “The Chronicles of Narnia” and as tribute to the late film critic Roger Ebert.
“I always find it a strange question, you know, ‘Do you like music?’ It’s like saying, ‘Do you like oxygen?’” she said.
The first song she chose was her friend Marilyn Manson’s “Personal Jesus.”
“(It’s) the thing that I used to listen to and rock out to with my group of monsters when we were making the ‘Narnia’ film on a mountain in New Zealand,” she said on air. “And to keep warm, we would rock out to this.”
Swinton switched genres with Barry White’s “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything. »

While "Step Brothers 2" seems less and less likely as time goes on, the good news is six years after their last full blown team-up, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Adam McKay are getting ready to reunite and hopefully make us laugh. Really, really hard. Deadline reports that the trio will get behind "Border Guards," with McKay eyeing directing Ferrell and Reilly. And the concept is pretty terrific. The pair will play a couple of inept pals who decide to do their part by protecting America from illegal immigrants, but they wind up in Mexico with no ID, and no way home, so they have to sneak back into the United States. Even better? "In The Loop," "The Thick Of It" and "Four Lions" writer Jesse Armstrong is going to pen the script, so this will certainly have some bite. It seems a bit of a way off from rolling, »

There's a special kind of comedy magic that happens when you pair Will Ferrell with John C. Reilly. And fans of both have reason to rejoice as these two insanely funny performers are reuniting for Border Guards, an upcoming comedy from Adam McKay. Deadline reports Sony Pictures is backing the Gary Sanchez Productions picture, which will star Ferrell and Reilly as two dopey but eager buddies who aim to give their lives new meaning by protecting America's southern border from would-be trespassers. It's unclear if the pair would be official border guards (as the title suggests) or the volunteer kind you occasionally hear about in strange news stories. Regardless, things take a turn for these two when they find themselves across the border without identification. You know what that means: they have to sneak back into the U.S., evading the very authorities of which they are a part! While »
