Joseph Gordon-Levitt on 'Sin City 2,' 'Sandman,' and a 'Star Wars' Cameo

11 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Of all the exceptional things about Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the insanely talented young actor (who has appeared in "Inception," "Looper," and "The Dark Knight Rises") and director (whose debut feature film, "Don Jon," came out last year), perhaps the most exceptional thing about him, at least on the day that we met him in Beverly Hills to discuss his role as the preternaturally gifted card shark Johnny in the wildly anticipated sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," was his socks.

They were really crazy and had a graphic of what appeared to be a geisha woman printed on them, against a background of a deep, nearly grape-colored purple. In fact, they were so amazing that I almost wanted to ask if I could take a photo of them for my Instagram.

I didn't.

But instead, I got to chat with Gordon-Levitt about what it was like playing in this »

Watch Some Guy Dressed As Marty McFly Perform Amazing Magic Tricks

12 August 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back to the Future fans know that their hero, one Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), drank a hell of a lot of Pepsi in the 1985 film. Fox had a contract with the soda company to appear in commercials during that time, and the soft drink was featured throughout the film. Director Robert Zemeckis wanted to spotlight a product that had changed packing and appearance between 1955 and 1985, so he chose Pepsi. The cola also features in this magic show starring YouTube wiz Stuart Edge, who recently visited Comic-Con dressed as Marty McFly. His routine starts with the usual card tricks, but once we get to the Pepsi gag, things perk up — and we even get a banana (reminiscent of the banana peel that powers Marty’s DeLorean time machine). And if you're wondering how the hell a...

The Nostalgia Files: Sequels of the 1980s

10 August 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1980s were a time in which the science fiction and adventure film genres reigned supreme. Films like Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Ghostbusters (1984), and Back to the Future (1985) are three of strong examples of classic 80s films that expanded their respective universes to further installments. The sequel, while a sometimes surefire way of making money off of an already established and original idea, can at times continue the adventure and prolong the cinematic magic in wonderful ways.

Filmmaker George Lucas popularized the sequel concept in 1980 with a follow-up to 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope. He had a vision when starting his space opera at episode #4 and The Empire Strikes Back furthered the adventures of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, R2-D2, and C3P0. It is thought by many to be far superior to its predecessor. A third installment soon followed and so did a prequel trilogy in 1999. These »

New Images From The Walk Show Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Philippe Petit

8 August 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve already seen one stunningly good film about Philippe Petit’s illegal walk between the World Trade Center towers in James Marsh’s Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire, and now we may be getting another. Next fall, Robert Zemeckis will unveil The Walk, which dramatizes the events of Petit’s book To Reach the Clouds: My High Wire Walk Between the Twin Towers with 50/50 star Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the daredevil.

Seeing as Zemeckis is working in IMAX 3D, The Walk is certainly going to be a gripping adventure for the senses, but the cast that the director has employed also suggests that the movie could be a major awards presence. Gordon-Levitt, looking very much like Petit in the new images from the film which dropped yesterday, is joined by Charlotte Le Bon, playing a member of Petit’s crew, and Ben Kingsley, portraying his mentor Papa Rudy. James Badge Dale, »

Cool Videos: Tom Hanks' audition tape for Forrest Gump

A few of you may have already seen this, but I figured I'd still show you Tom Hanks' audition tape for Forrest Gump since this year is the 20th anniversary of the Robert Zemeckis movie. It also features Robin Wright Penn reading for Jenny, the two kids who played the younger versions of Forrest and Jenny, and Haley Joel Osment as Forrest Jr. It's interesting to watch, but like most audition tapes, it is also a little awkward.

First Photos of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Robert Zemeckis' Man on Wire Remake The Walk

Thanks to USA Today, we now have the first official photos from the upcoming "The Walk," which is directed by Robert Zemeckis (Flight, Forrest Gump, Cast Away) and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Check out the photos below. The new movie tells the story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit's walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on August 7th, 1974. The dangerous walk, called the "artistic crime of the century," was explored in the award-winning "Man on Wire" documentary. Much of the movie will be about how Petit managed with a small group of relatives and his girlfriend to carefully plan the walk, sneaking up to the top of the Towers at night. They hid until late evening when they strung a 450-pound cable from one building to the other. Petit then stepped off the South Tower for a 45-minute walk to the North Tower. The majority of »
