The character is based on Goldberg's grandfather, Ben, and described as a cranky, put-upon curmudgeon who has been emotionally unavailable to his children for their entire lives.

Iggy Azalea dropped the video for her new single, "Black Widow," on Wednesday, and in it, she and Rita Ora - who lends vocals to the song - don their best skintight bodysuits to take down an evil, abusive boyfriend played expertly by Michael Madsen. Iggy takes on the role of Uma Thurman's character in Kill Bill and wields a giant sword while hunting down Madsen's villain. The video also features cameos from T.I. and Hollywood heavyweight Paul Sorvino. Iggy Azalea has already proven that she can pull off the music-video movie spinoff (like she did with the Clueless-inspired video for "Fancy" earlier this year), but what do you think of her latest? Watch the "Black Widow" video below and let us know. »
If you were as big a fan of Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich’s musical horror spectacle The Devil’s Carnival as I, you can officially start rejoicing now that production has begun on The Devil’s Carnival 2. If you can remember, a teaser trailer was released way back in 2012 that suggested the hellish carnival inhabitants would be traded for – or joined by – an equally colorful cast of heavenly bodies, and this was confirmed by TechN9ne’s angelic Librarian. Since then, there hasn’t been much movement, but if you’ve been checking up on the project’s social media channels, you’d know that Bousman’s production has officially been given the green light! Alleluia!

Chester Gould’s famous yellow-coated detective, Dick Tracy, has appeared across various mediums since his first comic strip appearance in 1931, but it wasn’t until 1990 that the character made his way into blockbuster territory. It may have been considered less than successful on release and forgotten to a certain extent since then, but there is a lot to love about Warren Beatty’s film, imbued with an infectious sense of fun and comic strip visuals that continue to impress.
Dick Tracy went through several hands before it finally landed Beatty in the director’s chair, though the actor had had a concept for it as far back as 1975. It’s a long and rocky development history that saw names such as Steven Spielberg and John Landis offered the »
I can't believe there were a couple production companies out there that actually made an unofficial sequel to Martin Scorsese and Robert DeNiro's classic boxing drama Raging Bull. But they did. It's called Bronx Bull, and today we give you the first trailer for the film. I personally think the movie looks awful. It's got a decent cast of talent, but the script seems pretty terrible.
The film is described as a "combination prequel and sequel that explores 'before the rage' and 'after the rage' of world middleweight boxing champ Jake Lamotta's tumultuous life and times."
The movie was directed by Martin Guigui (National Lampoon's Cattle Call) and it stars William Forsy, Natasha Henstridge, Alicia Witt, Penelope Ann Miller, Joe Mantegna, Ray Wise, Paul Sorvino, and more. There's no release date yet, but I doubt it's going to get a theatrical release.

Last year MGM launched a lawsuit against Jake Lamotta and director Martin Guigui (Beneath the Darkness) to prevent them from using the title Raging Bull II on a new low-budget biopic about the former Middleweight World Champion, who was of course portrayed by Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese’s 1980 classic. Having agreed to change the title to The Bronx Bull, the first trailer has now arrived online, and we’ve got it for you below…
The Bronx Bull stars William Forsythe (Boardwalk Empire) as Lamotta, while the rest of the cast includes Joe Mantegna (The Godfather: Part III), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Natasha Henstridge (Species), Penelope Ann Miller (Carlito’s Way), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks), Robert Davi (The Goonies), Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan), and James Russo (Django Unchained).
As yet, there’s no word on a release date for The Bronx Bull, but don’t be surprised if this one ends up going straight-to-video. »

A bunch of new trailers have landed over the past day or so for all sorts of upcoming smaller films, but with a lot of them starring big names. The most high-profile would be "The Judge" which sees Robert Downey Jr. returning to drama for the story of a slick city lawyer who returns to his hometown after his mother's death and ends up having to defend his estranged father from being convicted for her apparent murder.
Tom Hardy stars in "The Drop" as a Brooklyn bartender who gets caught up in a robbery investigation that digs deep into his neighborhood's past. Noomi Rapace, James Frecheville and Matthias Schoenaerts also star, as does the late James Gandolfini in his final performance.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about The Bronx Bull – the film project that initially billed itself as Raging Bull 2, before changing its name after legal threats. The seemingly ill-advised picture isn’t completely dead, though – no, it’s apparently moving along toward a release at some mythical date in the future. As proof, we’ve got this trailer that turned up a few months ago. We’re not sure why anyone would want to retell Jake Lamotta’s story after Scorsese did it so masterfully in Raging Bull, but the cast for this new version isn’t terrible. William Forsythe, Paul Sorvino and Joe Mantegna are headliners, and seem to be taking this all very seriously. Unfortunately, most of the trailer looks...

Dear Joe Mantegna, Paul Sorvino, Natasha Henstridge and Penelope Ann Miller—you should know better. Martin Scorsese's "Raging Bull" is without question a masterpiece and one of his finest accomplishments, so why participate in a movie that doesn't have his blessing and had MGM successfully sue the filmmakers, forcing them to change the name from "Raging Bull II" (you gotta at least admire the hubris) to "The Bronx Bull"? Anyway, the first trailer is here, and yes, it looks exactly as terrible as you thought. William Forsythe leads the movie playing Jake La Motta, and you might recall that he's already gone on record saying that this movie will improve on the Scorsese original. “I understand that because it's such an iconic, beautiful and amazing first film — one of the great films maybe of all time," he said a couple years back about the push back against the sequel. »

After the unofficial Raging Bull sequel/prequel The Bronx Bull was slapped with a lawsuit by MGM in 2012, many fans thought the movie would never see the light of day. The lawsuit was eventually settled, with the movie changing its title from Raging Bull II to The Bronx Bull, and now we have our first look at this controversial film with the new trailer. William Forsythe stars as boxer Jake Lamotta, portrayed by Robert De Niro in Raging Bull, in what is described as both a prequel and a sequel to the 1980 classic, offering new insight into the boxer's turbulent life. Natasha Henstridge, Alicia Witt, Penelope Ann Miller, Joe Mantegna, Ray Wise and Paul Sorvino round out the supporting cast for director Martin Guigui's drama, which doesn't have a release date set at this time.
A combination prequel and sequel that explores before the rage and after the rage »
Two years after it began production as Raging Bull II and being forced to change it's title to The Bronx Bull, the sequel/prequel/remake to Martin Scorsese's classic boxing drama has released a trailer. With a pretty good cast including William Forsythe, Joe Mantegna, Paul Sorvino, Penelope Ann Miller, and Natasha Henstridge, The Bronx Bull looks every bit the low budget affair that it is. Shot in color, this version of Jake Lamotta's story ventures back to before he became a boxer and had »
