Zoolander 2: Christine Taylor confirmed to return

28 January 2015 10:53 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ben Stiller's Derek Zoolander will share the screen with Christine Taylor's Matilda Jeffries again in Zoolander 2...

Well folks, this looks like the year that the Zoolander sequel is finally set to go before the cameras. We've been writing about Zoolander 2 for many, many years at Den Of Geek, but it only feels that it's in recent months that the project has gained some proper momentum.

Thus far, we know that Justin Theroux has worked on the screenplay with Ben Stiller. Stiller will once again be playing Derek Zoolander, and once again be directing. Furthermore, last year it was revealed that Penelope Cruz was set to join the cast, and that Will Ferrell would be returning as well.

The latest to confirm they're back? That'd be Christine Taylor, who played Matilda Jeffries in the original Zoolander. Of the sequel, she said to Entertainment Weekly that "I can tell you that I'm involved, »

Christine Taylor Confirms She’s Back For Zoolander 2

28 January 2015 12:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been 15 years since Paramount’s farcical supermodel comedy chronicling the story of Derek Zoolander hit our screens. During that time, the spoofy feature has become something of a cult phenomenon, the existence of which has prompted a sequel. In these early stages, it’s going by the straightforward title Zoolander 2, and during its development has collected an impressive roster of returning stars. Now, thanks to an interview with EW, original cast member Christine Taylor has confirmed that she’s now joined that list:

“I can tell you that I’m involved,” she says, “but that’s all I can say. I can tell you it’s happening, but I can’t tell you where Matilda’s at and where their relationship is at. It’s all top secret!”

For the goofy supermodel’s original outing, Taylor played his main love interest journalist Matilda Jeffries. Embodying the typical »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

Lost in the Awards Rush: Nine

27 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

"Lost in the Awards Rush" is a new weekly series Slackerwood is running during the awards season, to suggest lesser-known but excellent alternatives to popular frontrunners for big movie awards.

Upon its Broadway debut in 1987, Into the Woods was praised as an innovative, dark, bold and musically astounding work that, to this day, remains unequaled. Naturally, a movie version had to follow of this re-imagining of classic fairy tales and what happens after "happily ever after." Though there were plans for a Rob Reiner-directed movie adaptation featuring Cher, Goldie Hawn, Elijah Wood and Robin Williams in the early '90s, that sadly fell apart -- the notion of bringing a project so well regarded and towering in both story and scope seemed virtually impossible.

Enter Rob Marshall, who successfully brought Chicago (2002) (another seemingly un-adaptable Broadway sensation) to the screen and had set out to work similar wonders with what »

Gwyneth Paltrow Worried She'd Get Fired for Laughing After Kissing Johnny Depp in Mortdecai

[Embedcode {}] It might be unimaginable to think that kissing Johnny Depp could more trouble than it's worth, but that appears to have been the case for his Mortdecai costar, Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow, 42, stopped by The Rachael Ray Show to discuss working with Depp and the mustache that made her laugh so much she was afraid she was going to get fired from the film. In the movie, Depp, 51, who plays the titular character, wears a particularly insane mustache that makes his wife, played by Paltrow, gag. Because of his automatic gag reflex, her gagging makes Depp retch in turn, and even »

"Grimsby," "Southpaw" Score New Dates

22 January 2015 3:26 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sony Pictures has pushed back the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy "Grimsby" from its July 31st release date to early 2016.

The Louis Leterrier-directed film will now open on February 26th 2016 and also stars Isla Fisher, Rebel WilsonPenélope Cruz, Ian McShane, and Gabourey Sidibe.

In response, The Weinstein Company has now slotted in Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama "Southpaw" for that July 31st release date. Coming off his emaciated look in "Nightcrawler," Jake Gyllenhaal buffed up for "Southpaw" which deals with a middleweight boxing champion who struggles after he experiences a personal tragedy.

The move offers something one normally doesn't get in the middle of summer - a serious, dramatic piece targeting adults. A welcome move though in some quarters.

Acting Oscar Nominations for Foreign-Language Performances

21 January 2015 8:08 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With the addition of Marion Cotillard’s lead actress nomination for the Belgian film Two Days, One Night, 32 actors and actresses have been nominated for their performances in foreign-language films. Cotillard was nominated for her role as a young mother and wife struggling to salvage her job in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardennes’ film, which was chosen as Belgium’s submission to the foreign-language category but failed to secure a spot on the Oscar shortist.

Though her performance did land a Critics’ Choice Award nomination, the Oscar nomination did come as a surprise for many pundits.

Cotillard was previously nominated for the French foreign-language film La Vie En Rose (2007) and won. She is one of six actors or actresses to win for a non-English role and is also the most recent winner.

The first acting nomination for a foreign-language performance went to Sophia Loren in 1962 for »

Variety Critics Pick Their Favorite Film Sex Scenes

20 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With sex and Hollywood in the spotlight as the debut of Universal’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie approaching, Variety critics weigh in on their favorite movie sex scenes.

Justin Chang

 

“Don’t Look Now”

(Nicolas Roeg, 1973)

This notorious sequence, featuring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, comes feverishly close to capturing the close-quarters tenderness of a loving marriage.

 

“Late Marriage”

(Dover Kosashvili, 2001)

Ronit Elkabetz and Lior Ashkenazi star in one of the most unguarded and naturalistic sex scenes ever filmed, full of cranky pillow talk, playfully feigned orgasms and free-flowing nudity.

 

“The Dreamers”

(Bernardo Bertolucci, 2003)

A naked Eva Green forcibly seduces a shy Michael Pitt, who is both aghast and aroused — a fair assessment of the viewer’s reaction as well.

Scott Foundas

 

Last Tango in Paris

(Bernardo Bertolucci, 1972)

The butter scene ensured notoriety, but another moment — two lonely people naked on a mattress, trying to bring each other to »
