Gemma Arterton and Ryan Reynolds in New The Voices Images

15 April 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

The last time I posted anything about Ryan Reynolds’ “The Voices,” it was back in 2011, and Ben Stiller was attached to star and Mark Romanek to direct. Well, those two guys are gone, and replacing them is Reynolds in the lead and Marjane Satrapi calling the shots behind the camera. No trailer yet, though the movie has already premiered in various festivals, and now you can check out three new images (and a poster) from the film, including a rather interesting shot featuring Gemma Arterton. Considering the premise of this movie, if you gave Reynolds a mask and a sword, he might already be playing Deadpool, the crazed comic book character he’s been trying to play for the last three decades or so. This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, »

'Hunger Games' top winner at 2014 MTV Movie Awards

13 April 2014 9:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles (AP) — "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" earned the prize for best film at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards, besting even top Oscar winner "12 Years a Slave." "Hunger Games" stars also took home some of the night's biggest awards. Jennifer Lawrence won best female performance and Josh Hutcherson was voted best male performer. Zany categories were also in abundance. Zac Efron earned best shirtless performance, while properly accepting his award, well, shirtless. Plenty of golden popcorn-shaped prizes were handed out at the 22nd annual MTV Movie Awards, but it was the summer movie teasers — and the stars attached to them — that really had Hollywood excited. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx, stars of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," coming May 2, introduced a brief clip of the film showing Spider-Man (Garfield) and the sparkling blue villain Electro (Foxx) battling in New York's Times Square. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the star of "Godzilla, »

Mark Wahlberg Nabs Generation Award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, Drops a Ton of F-Bombs

13 April 2014 8:27 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Just call Mark Wahlberg the king of the F-Bomb. Sure, there were slip-ups here and there during the MTV Movie Awards this year (we're looking at you Jonah Hill), but when the 42-year-old Lone Survivor star hit the stage to accept the Generation award, he reigned supreme. "I know what this really means. Many people have gotten this award before…Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, Jennifer Aniston…this is the you're too f-cking old to come back award," Wahlberg joked. "This isn't the Channing Tatum award…this is you're f-cking done, but you know what, it's been a great run." Old jokes aside, it was also a bit of an Entourage reunion, considering that cast members »

MTV Movie Awards Winners 2014: Who Took Home the Golden Popcorns?

The MTV Movie Awards are upon us once again, set to take place on Sunday in Los Angeles.

As Conan O'Brien prepares to take the reins as host of the raucous show, AccessHollywood.com counts down the 10 most memorable moments from years past:

April Showers: Flirting With Disaster

9 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

waterworks each night at 11

How many of you have seen David O. Russell's Flirting With Disaster (1996)? With the exception of the stupidly maligned I ♥ Huckabees, it's his funniest film. One day it will surely be rediscovered given the attention his films regularly win now. The film centers on bickering spouses Mel & Nancy (Ben Stiller & Patricia Arquette) who are searching for Mel's birth parents. In the screwball chaotic final act, they end up sharing the guest rooms in the crowded home of drug-loving hippie conspiracy theorists (Lily Tomlin, Alan Alda, Glen Fitzgerald) with a neurotic adoption agency executive Tina (Tea Leoni) and federal agents partners Paul and Tony (Richard Jenkins and Josh Brolin) who are also lovers. Eyes start to wander: Tina and Mel get flirtatious and Tony just can't stop coming on to Nancy.

‘Wish I Was Here’ Trailer: The Secret Life of Zach Braff

9 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

First of all, you won’t be surprised by the band included in the trailer for Wish I Was Here. Second of all, you won’t be surprised by the raw quirkiness at work. It’s very Braffian. Which is remarkable considering that Zach Braff has only directed two features. He’s already nailed down a signature style as a sophomore. Here he follows up Garden State with the next step in adult existential crisis and a hint of Walter Mitty. Braff plays Aidan Bloom, an unsuccessful actor who ends up having to home school his children. It’s an even money guess on who learns the most out of the deal. It’s ideal as a teaser — large on flash and limited on details — but that first line (and its repetition) are an Alamo-sized line in the sand for potential viewers. That’s a full-on Stuart Smalley slogan right there. Like »

11 Movie Scenes that are Vicariously Embarrassing to Watch

9 April 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I love how movies make you feel certain emotions as you watch them. It's one of my favorite parts about going to the movies. I always find it interesting, though, when I get vicariously embarrassed during awkward moments. Meaning I am embarrassed for the characters in the movie in the positions that they are put in. I started thinking about this while I was watching Goodfellas over the weekend. Is it just me, or does it seem like this movie is on every other day? Anyway, There's a scene where Joe Pesci starts to get pissed off at Ray Liotta for telling him he was a funny guy. The scene went from being fun to uncomfortable very fast, and I started to feel embarrassed for Liotta's character. 

I started to think of what other movies that made me feel like that, and came up with the following list of films. »

After Rooney's Death, Who Is Earliest Surviving Best Actor Academy Award Nominee?

8 April 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Mickey Rooney was earliest surviving Best Actor Oscar nominee (photo: Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy in ‘Boys Town’) (See previous post: “Mickey Rooney Dead at 93: MGM’s Andy Hardy Series’ Hero and Judy Garland Frequent Co-Star Had Longest Film Career Ever?”) Mickey Rooney was the earliest surviving Best Actor Academy Award nominee — Babes in Arms, 1939; The Human Comedy, 1943 — and the last surviving male acting Oscar nominee of the 1930s. Rooney lost the Best Actor Oscar to two considerably more “prestigious” — albeit less popular — stars: Robert Donat for Sam Wood’s Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939) and Paul Lukas for Herman Shumlin’s Watch on the Rhine (1943). Following Mickey Rooney’s death, there are only two acting Academy Award nominees from the ’30s still alive: two-time Best Actress winner Luise Rainer, 104 (for Robert Z. Leonard’s The Great Ziegfeld, 1936, and Sidney Franklin’s The Good Earth, 1937), and Best Supporting Actress nominee Olivia de Havilland, »

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Blu-Ray Combo Pack Giveaway

8 April 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is just about to hit in stores, and I’ve got a copy of the Blu-Ray Combo Pack for you. The Ben Stiller vehicle didn’t have quite as much impact on theaters as I expected, but I’m hoping it gets a new lease on life with the home release.

That might be a little surprising (catch our podcast review, and my Answers.com review) considering that I haven’t exactly championed the film whole-heartedly, but I wasn’t exactly opposed to it either. It’s a fun ride, that had a few rough spots, and didn’t exactly play out the way I’d have liked. In the end, I think it’s a lot better than most are probably giving it credit for, and it has a few scenes that really shouldn’t be missed.

Also, to help celebrate the film, »

Trailers from Hell on 'There's Something About Mary'

7 April 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, writer and producer Chris Wilkinson takes on the Farrelly Brothers' raunchy 1998 comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller, "There's Something About Mary." If Mel Brooks had directed "An Affair to Remember," it might look something like this 1998 comedy from the Farrelly Brothers. Mixing gross out humor with a genuinely sweet romantic pay-off expanded its target audience and helped make "There's Something About Mary" the fourth highest grossing film of its year. Starring Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon in a ribald spin on the screwball comedies of the thirties, the Farrellys proved themselves to be inspired vulgarians with their hearts on their sleeves and DNA on their pants. »
