Magic Mike Xxl Gets A X-Rated Period Trailer

30 June 2015 6:42 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Magic Mike Xxl is now only days away from hitting cinemas. To celebrate the film.s impending release, the erotic adventure of Channing Tatum.s titular dreamer has been re-imagined as a 70s X-Rated flick, and it really is everything for which you could have hoped. You can take in this unique homage to this fallen genre in all of its glory below. Now, if that doesn.t immediately get you interested in Magic Mike Xxl then I don.t think anything will. With its thudding bass, scratchy visuals and creepy narrator, there.s a lot to thank Vulture for. There was certainly a Boogie Nights vibe to the entire clip. In fact, you could easily imagine Burt Reynolds. Jack Horner behind the camera barking directions to Channing Tatum, much in the same way that his character did to Mark Wahlberg.s Dirk Diggler in Paul Thomas Anderson.s 1997 masterpiece. »

Here Are 15 Actors That Were Almost Cast as Superman

12 June 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Did you know that June 12 every year is Superman Day? We're not sure how this particular day came to be dedicated to the Man of Steel, especially since he seems omnipresent in our lives every day. A pop cultural mainstay since 1938, the Krypton-born hero never seems far away, especially in the movies.

Yet while it seems every boy has dreamed of putting on the red cape and flying, the character has been remarkably hard to cast in movies. For every Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh or Henry Cavill who said yes, many more have said no. Here are 15 potential Kal-El's that never came to be.

1. Sylvester Stallone

"Yo, Lois!" After the success of "Rocky," it's no wonder that "Superman: The Movie" producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind considered Stallone to play the Last Son of Krypton. Reportedly, he was deemed too ethnic for the part, though other sources have said that Marlon Brando »

Top 8 mindblowing actors with sea creatures

9 June 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Have you ever lain awake at night, wondering whether your favourite celebrities have posed with sea creatures? Well, wonder no more...

Every so often, a team of expensive social media consultants contacts us with some handy hints. Handy hints designed to engage audiences, raise profiles, provide watercooler conversations, and other such trendy phrases.

This week, the consultants  - who work in a trendy office with proper air-conditioning and a cheese plant in the reception - told us that pictures of celebrities are big news right now. "You're an entertainment site," they said. "Do a post with celebrity pictures in it. Hollywood stars. TV's brightest. That kind of thing."

"It works for Buzzworthy and Upfeed," they added, as we slammed down the phone and rushed to our workstations.

So we've done a bit of hunting around, and here are the fruits of our labour: a post devoted to some of your favourite actors and TV stars. »

Chiraq and Lowriders storm fuelled by Hollywood's exploitation habit

8 June 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Spike Lee’s film about the mean streets of Chicago and an Los Angeles-set drama about Latino gangsters are just the latest movies accused of stereotyping communities

There are people living in northern Georgia who still feel scarred by the 1972 film Deliverance and its depiction of locals as inbred, rapist backwoodsmen. But it took a documentary, 2012’s The Deliverance of Rabun County, to bring those feelings to the surface a full four decades after John Boorman borrowed the sublime American scenery of the Chattooga river for his harrowing thriller, starring Burt Reynolds, Jon Voight and Ned Beatty.

No one in the far-flung region of the Appalachian mountains cared to complain publicly, and it’s unlikely their voices would have been heard if they had, so disconnected was Rabun County from the media hubbub in the 1970s. But in an era where a single tweet can push a grievance into a maelstrom of publicity, »

Shirt On, Or Shirt Off? Thn’s Top Jason Statham Screen Moments

29 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Say whatever you want about Jason Statham, but at the end of the day, you know exactly what you are going to get in Stath flick. Action, arse kicking, a couple of lovely dolly birds, his short right off and some kick-ass one liners. To celebrate the release of his new film Spy, which arrives in cinemas on Friday 5th June, we thought we’d count down our favourite Stath moments that have been captured on film over the years since his debut in 1998’s Lock Stock & Two Smokin’ Barrels. We love him. We all love him.

“Protection from what? Ze Germans?” Snatch (2000)

Stath plays… Turkish

Shirt On, or Shirt Off? – Shirt On

Possibly the film that secured Stath as a Hollywood leading man. His turn as Turkish is perhaps my favourite role that Statham has portrayed on screen. The film is full of one liners and fun interactions, particularly »

With 'Entourage' arriving soon, we examine classic films about boys being boys

24 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few nights ago, Warner Bros. hosted a very canny event that our own Louis Virtel attended at the Playboy Mansion, a screening of "Entourage" that may have felt like virtual reality for those who attended. While I doubt being surrounded by scantily clad bunnies influenced Louis one way or another on the film, it's likely you'll see a number of reviews that are perhaps more enthusiastic than they would otherwise be, and it'd be hard to blame anyone who fell for it. One of the reasons the setting seemed so right for that particular film is because much of the charge of "Entourage" is watching the core ensemble swagger their way through Hollywood, doing whatever they want and rarely if ever facing any consequences as a result. It's always presented with a wink and a smile, just a case of boys being boys. We live in a world right »

Back at it! Burt Reynolds made a rare public appearance on Saturday, May 9, and while he looked strikingly different than years back, the veteran actor is still as charming as ever.

"I think it's a good time to find out what it's all about," he told The Philadelphia Inquirer of the event. "I always [...] »

Time Machine: Pre-Ted Wahlberg - Bypassed for Best Actor Oscar - and Super-Model Wife on the Red Carpet

Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham on the Oscars' Red Carpet Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham at the Academy Awards Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham in a red-and-golden outfit are pictured above on the 2011 Academy Awards' Red Carpet, just outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories. Wahlberg, however, was a Best Supporting Actor nominee four years ago: for »

Their source is one of Rupert Murdoch's rags, citing a Facebook posting by one of the actor's friends. The cause of death was purportedly – no specific source was provided – a drug overdose.* Aired on Fox in July 1990, Glory Days told the story of four high-school friends whose paths take different directions after graduation. Besides Nicholas Kallsen and Brad Pitt, the show also featured Spike Alexander and Evan Mirand. Glory Days lasted a mere six episodes – two of which directed by former Happy Days actor Anson Williams – before its cancellation.

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

Jack Nicholson Facts: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Iconic Actor

22 April 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Let's hope Jack Nicholson has a pleasant birthday on Wednesday, or at least a less disturbing one than the birthday when pal Hunter S. Thompson showed up outside his house, turned on a spotlight, blasted a recording of a pig being eaten alive by bears, fired several rounds from his 9mm pistol, and (when the terrified actor and his kids refused to open the door) left an elk's heart on the doorstep.

Nicholson turns 78 on April 22, and even though he hasn't been in a movie for five years, he still looms large in our collective imaginations. Younger viewers know him from his flamboyant performances in "The Departed," "The Bucket List," "Something's Gotta Give," and "Anger Management," but his older films remain ubiquitous on TV as well, including "As Good as It Gets," "A Few Good Men," "Batman," "The Witches of Eastwick," "Terms of Endearment," "The Shining," and "Chinatown." A late bloomer, »

23 specially-shot movie teaser trailers

21 April 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Psycho to Jurassic Park, here are 23 teaser trailers that don't show a frame of footage from the movies they're advertising...

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.

But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »

Jason Sudeikis in Talks for ‘Fletch’ Reboot

15 April 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity Studios is in talks with Jason Sudeikis to star in its reboot of “Fletch.”

Relativity and Boies/Schiller Film Group have closed a deal for movie rights to “Fletch,” based on the Gregory Mcdonald novels. The books center on newspaper reporter Irwin Maurice Fletcher, who prefers the nickname “Fletch” and has to deal with drama surrounding his two ex-wives.

Producers are Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, Boies/Schiller president Zach Schiller, David List on behalf of the Mcdonald estate and John Rickard.

Relativity and Boies/Schiller are currently meeting with writers for the project, expected to return to the beginning of the Fletch stories, as McDonald did in his prequel “Fletch Won.”

A “Fletch” reboot has been in the works at several other studios. Warner Bros. began developing a “Fletch” movie in 2011 and and set up the project with Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Michael Sugar.
