First Official Trailer For ‘Ted 2′

7 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Seth Macfarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West, may have underperformed in the eyes of audiences and critics. However, the hilariously opinionated and outspoken star still struck gold with his 2012 smash hit comedy behemoth, Ted. After Universal Studios received over ten times the budget of their R rated production in ticket sales, it came as little surprise to learn that Ted 2 was on the horizon.

Not only did the original film manage to make Mark Wahlberg an A-list, household name, but it also effectively demonstrated that Macfarlane’s crude comedy style can translate to the big screen with ease. With Family Guy, American Dad and… *ahem* The Cleveland Show , all proving that their is indeed a huge market for this particular brand of humour, it seems strange that it has taken this long for Macfarlane to make the jump to the big screen.

With that in mind, »

Ted 2 Trailer Is Ridiculous And Inappropriate, Watch It Now

9 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Ted 2 trailer is finally here, and just like you.d expect: it.s pretty raunchy. Though, not as raunchy as we know Seth MacFarlane can be. We thought Universal was gonna make a grand to-do and debut the first footage of the sequel during Super Bowl Sunday, but they dropped it a bit early. So, how.s about we actually learn what the hell is going on in Ted 2, yes? The Star Wars: Episode 7 trailer may have had Andy Serkis as a narrator, but the Ted 2 trailer has Sir Patrick Stewart, who.s been a longtime collaborator with MacFarlane. (He voices Stan.s boss Captain Bullock in American Dad.) So it already has at least one thing going for it. Prior to this footage, we knew that Amanda Seyfried was in the sequel and that Mila Kunis was expected to make at least a small appearance. »

Production underway on Seth MacFarlane’s Blunt Talk starring Patrick Stewart

28 January 2015 1:58 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Starz has announced that production is underway on Blunt Talk, a new half-hour scripted comedy series which is executive produced by Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) and stars Patrick Stewart as a British newsman trying to make his mark in the States. Here’s the first official image, followed by the official synopsis…

Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. Through the platform of his nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles. »

10 X-Men Characters The Movies Totally Wasted

25 January 2015 12:26 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The long-running X-Men series has remained one of the most consistently popular franchises in Hollywood and after fifteen years of movies including sequels, prequels, reboots and spin-offs the merry band of mutants show no signs of slowing down; last year’s Days of Future past marked both a critical and commercial high point for the franchise with almost $750m at the box office and a current Rotten Tomatoes rating of 91%.

However, as you would expect from a franchise that spans seven movies, features dozens of characters and includes a hugely convoluted timeline that spans decades; there are a number of mutants that have been short-changed on the big screen. While Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine quickly became one of popular culture’s biggest icons and Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender have done great work as Professor Xavier and Magneto respectively, not every character is »

Patrick Stewart open to playing Jean-Luc Picard again

24 January 2015 5:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the best known roles of Patrick Stewart’s career is that of Jean-Luc Picard, captain of the USS Enterprise.

Stewart played the role in the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation and in several movies, the most recent of which was Star Trek: Nemesis, which came out in 2002.

During a Q&A on Facebook to promote his latest movie Match, a fan asked Stewart if he would like to play Picard again, with the actor responding: “Absolutely, if it were a really good script. But, the poor soul is getting old and long in the tooth. He would probably need some help mounting his horse unlike the youthful captain of 30 years ago.”

He was then asked who could play a younger Picard if he could not play the role. He responded “I would have to say it must be the actor, my son, Daniel Stewart.”

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Casts New Actors for Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm

23 January 2015 1:15 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Late last week, Patrick Stewart appeared on Larry King's TV show and stated plainly that he and Ian McKellen would not be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse because the movie "is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance." This isn't terribly surprising, since the younger incarnations of their characters, as played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, respectively, were much more the stars of  X-Men: Days of Future Past. And we already heard that a couple of other characters would return, recast with younger actors since the movie predominantly takes places in the 1980s. For the younger Jean Grey, previously played by Famke Janssen, Chloe Moretz, Hailee...

Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner is officially X-Men's Jean Grey

23 January 2015 11:16 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sansa Stark – or rather actress Sophie Turner – has been cast as Jean Grey in 2016's Days of Future Past follow-up, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Last night, director Bryan Singer confirmed on his Twitter account that “Game of Thrones” star will become Famke Janssen’s younger iteration much in the same way Jennifer Lawrence has taken over for Rebecca Romijn, James McAvoy for Patrick Stewart, and so on.

Joining Turner are The Tree of Life and Mud’s Tye Sheridan as young Cyclops/Scott Summers and newcomer Alexandra Shipp as young Storm.

Turner’s Sansa has never been the favourite Stark. “Game of Thrones” fans have gravitated toward her younger sister, Arya, in much greater numbers, but Sansa should not be counted out. Unlike her sister, who lives on the fringes with a tiny sword and a bowl cut, Sansa has started to embrace the political intrigues of Westeros – she’s now “playing »
