The Buchmans are back together again!  Helen Hunt reunited with her "Mad About You" costar, Paul Reiser, on Tuesday night at the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie, "Ride." In the flick, the 51-year-old actress plays a magazine editor who discovers her son has dropped out of college to become a surfer.

For his follow up to The Guard and Calvary, John Michael McDonagh is leaving the shores of Ireland, and travelling to New Mexico for black action comedy War On Everyone. Cameras have started rolling in Albuquerque, home of Breaking Bad, on the movie which follows us Michael Pena and Alexander Skarsgard (shown getting into character above) as two bent cops looking to black mail and generally stitch up every felon who crosses their path, but get into trouble when they run into someone who is more dangerous and unscrupulous than they are.

Screen Daily delivers the above first look at John Michael McDonagh's upcoming movie War on Everyone starring Michael Pena and Alexander Skarsgard (replacing Garrett Hedlund) as two corrupt cops in New Mexico who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path.

In addition to the photo we also learn filming is underway in New Mexico and the complete cast has been revealed. Joining Pena and Skarsgard are Theo James (Insurgent), Tessa Thompson (Dear White People), Caleb Landry Jones (Antiviral), Paul Reiser (Whiplash), Stephanie Sigman (Miss Bala, Spectre) and David Wilmot (Calvary).

First Look: Alexander Skarsgard Puts Up His Middle Finger In John Michael McDonagh's 'War On Everyone'

20 April 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are few writer/directors that can balance dark drama with incisive wit, but John Michael McDonagh is one of them. With just two films — "The Guard" and "Calvary," both of which could probably use a bit more attention — he's established himself as a filmmaker who can handle a variety of tones with deft ease, while creating distinct, memorable characters. And his latest is his biggest effort to date. Filming has started on the perfectly titled "War On Everyone," and the first cheeky image is here. Michael Peña, Alexander Skarsgård, Theo James, Tessa Thompson, Caleb Landry Jones, Paul Reiser, Stephanie Sigman, and David Wilmot star in the action-comedy about two crooked cops who blackmail everyone they can, until one criminal proves to be more difficult to handle than they anticipated. So yes, we're very, very stoked on this one. Read More: Review: John Michael McDonagh's 'Calvary' Starring Brendan Gleeson, »

'Whiplash' Short That Inspired Movie Is Now Online

2 March 2015 3:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Although it didn't ultimately take home the Best Picture Oscar last weekend, writer-director Damien Chazelle's Whiplash is widely regarded as one of the best movies of 2014. J.K. Simmons ended up taking home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of the brutal music professor Fletcher, but before that, he played the same role in Damien Chazelle's short film, also entitled Whiplash. The short ended up winning the Short Film Jury Prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, which lead to the feature film getting produced, and today we have the full short online.

Damien Chazelle's Whiplash screenplay landed on The Black List in 2012, a list of the most popular unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. Since he had never directed a film before, the writer picked a lengthy scene from his script and directed it himself, bringing on J.K. Simmons to play Fletcher and Johnny Simmons (21 Jump Street »

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

The Week in Horror: Louis C.K. lobbies for 'Alien 5,' 'Bates Motel' gets even more incest-y

20 February 2015 6:11 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome back to "The Week in Horror," HitFix's ongoing series that rounds up the 10 most pertinent fright-genre stories to break over the last seven days. In this week's edition: one of our greatest comedians is hot for our greatest sci-fi/horror franchise, Fox raises the ire of fanboys with its apparently-infuriating adaptation of a Neil Gaiman comic book series and Dan Aykroyd isn't letting certain failure keep him from pushing for another "conventional" "Ghostbusters" sequel. See below for the full roundup. #1 Louis C.K. wants in on this "Alien" business The Emmy-winning comedian not only wants to star in the Neill Blomkamp-directed sequel (see below), he'd like to "die in a terrible way," as Sigourney Weaver related on Wednesday's episode of "Jimmy Fallon." If this happens, he's totally the new Paul Reiser. #2 Neill Blomkamp is directing the next "Alien" movie It's official! The director of one very good film and »

Oscars 2015: Why Whiplash should win Best Picture

20 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We know, we know. It's not going to happen. But in the run-up to Oscar Sunday, why not dare to dream?

We first fell in love with Damien Chazelle's thrilling, singular Whiplash at Cannes last spring, and we ended up giving the film no fewer than three separate five-star reviews - one from Cannes, one from the London Film Festival and one for its theatrical release. Because why do things by halves?

Here are six reasons why we're rooting for Whiplash in this year's Best Picture race.

1. The script

Alongside Jk Simmons's performance and Tom Cross's editing, the most-nominated aspect of Whiplash this awards season has been its lean, rich screenplay, which you can (and should) read in full online.

The film's laser focus on the push-pull between Andrew and Fletcher is tangible on the page, Chazelle meticulously peppering emotionally »

2015 Oscar Previews: Part 1

17 February 2015 4:32 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 87th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 22nd at 7pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself.

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »
