Watch Marlon Wayans' Fantastic Audition Video for the Richard Pryor Biopic

24 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Remember when Marlon Wayans was attached to star in a Richard Pryor biopic? His time for the role has since passed, with Mike Epps now set to portray the late comedian in a movie directed by Lee Daniels and costarring Oprah Winfrey and Kate Hudson. But thanks to Shadow and Act, we can see some of what the Wayans version might have looked liked.  The video below features the Requiem for a Dream standout performing a scene with Omar Epps that was reportedly written and directed by Dreamgirls helmer Bill Condon -- who penned the old draft of the biopic, then titled Is It Something I Said?, and was supposed to direct before departing for the final Twilight movies  -- plus another stand-up bit taken from one of Pryor's actual moments on stage. The audition...

Watch Footage From Marlon Wayans' Richard Pryor Audition Tape

23 February 2015 7:58 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

The role now belongs to Mike Epps, in a project that will be directed by Lee Daniels, with Oprah Winfrey also attached to play Richard Pryor's grandmother. But, at one time, Marlon Wayans was to play Pryor in a film that Chris Rock was on-board to produce; this was in 2010, when Rock shared his enthusiasm for the project, and just how blown away he was by Marlons' audition tape. Might this be footage from the tape that Rock and company watched, that blew them away? Thanks to reader "Dave," here's footage from Wayans' Richard Pryor audition tape, made with the contributions of Omar Epps. But the role now belongs to Mike Epps, so, no matter what you think of Wayans' »

10 ridiculously silly movie orgasms: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Biggs & more

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

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....

The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!

From Jennifer Aniston's otherworldly pleasure to Jason Biggs's doubly embarrassing shortcomings - here are 10 fantastically farcical orgasms on the silver screen below:

1. Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999)

Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.

Sadly Stifler (Seann William Scott) had previously coerced Jim to set up a webcam in his room so they can all watch the frisky teenage pair, but he unwittingly »

Before She Fixed Things on ‘Scandal,’ Kerry Washington Hit the Dance Floor with Julia Stiles

22 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Kerry Washington is killing it these days. But you already knew that. She’s become a cultural icon as Scandal‘s Olivia Pope, and consequently one of the most visible actresses in Hollywood. But where was she before she was a card-carrying member of Shondaland?

For the most part, she was “that girl in that movie.” You couldn’t really place her. But now, her small roles in movies you’ve seen but never recognized her in mean so much more. In fact, now she has the clout to retroactively add star power to any movie. Namely, these five movies you forgot Kerry Washington was in. (Note: we’re skipping the ones no one you know has probably ever heard of.)

Little Man (2006)

Surely the project Kerry Washington is most proud, Little Man tells the story of a tiny convict named Calvin (played by Marlon Wayans) who’s adopted by an incredibly aloof couple, »

6 January 2015 3:59 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Wall Street Journal reports “overall North American box-office receipts and attendance for 2014 declined more than 5% to $10.35 billion from $10.92 billion in 2013, according to box-office tracker Rentrak Corp. – the worst results since 2011.”

Kicking off 2015 with “Best of” lists and awards season on the minds of many Cinephiles, we offer our look back at the worst of 2014. Some awful, some horrendous, we were disappointed and flummoxed by some of the movies Tinseltown released into theaters (and on moviegoers) over the past 12 months.

As we shake our Wamg heads over the biggest letdowns, here we go with our Top 10 list of the Worst Films of 2014.

Dishonorable Mention: Horns

In Horns Daniel Radcliffe played a grieving young man who inexplicably grows horns from his forehead after the community he lives in finds him culpable for the death and murder of his girlfriend. Horns was a mishmash of genres that never quite fit together; crime drama, »

The Interview And A Million Ways To Die In The West Head Up The Razzies Worst Film Nominees

5 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five days into the new year and the movie awards season is in full swing. A chance to celebrate all of the cinematic gold bestowed upon us by filmmakers over the last 365 days, the majority of awards bodies veer towards the positive. The good, the great and the outstanding movie achievements. Of course, you can’t have yin without yang, and that customary glint of deviousness amidst the showers of compliments will soon be upon us, in the shape of the The Annual Golden Raspberry Awards.

Known informally as The Razzies, the achievements are dished out based on how bad the category nominees performed, and this year’s nominees have now been announced. Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West beat out its closest competitors for the esteemed honour of most nominations with a whopping eight altogether. Recent limelight comedy, The Interview, also snagged four nominations across three categories. »

‘The Interview,’ ‘Sex Tape,’ Make Razzies Shortlist

4 January 2015 12:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the film business gears up to honor the best films of the year at the Academy Awards, the worst are getting recognized, too.

The shortlist for the Razzies, which names the worst films of the year, has been obtained by awards site Gold Derby, listing some of the biggest grossers of the year, like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” and others that didn’t do so well. The shortlist isn’t a concrete list of the nominations — rather, it’s a preview of the contenders for the dubious honor.

Seth McFarlene’s “A Million Ways to Die” looks like it could be the frontrunner for the awards, popping up eight times. “Sex Tape,” which garnered mostly negative reviews, is listed six times. Seth Rogen and James Franco are both on the list for worst actor for “The Interview,” as well as worst onscreen duo.

14 Worst Movies of 2014

1 January 2015 8:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most Hollywood studios have gotten smart about their film budgets, lowering them quite a bit over the past year. Which means we saw fewer box office bombs in 2014. Almost all of the big releases made at least a little bit of their money back, except maybe Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. It only earned $18.6 million worldwide against it's $70 million budget. Winter's Tale and Vampire Academy were also big money losers over the past twelve months, but seeming disasters like Transcendence and I, Frankenstein actually managed to recoup their costs overseas. That doesn't mean these were good movies by any means. And some of the biggest blockbusters of the year shouldn't be considered masterpieces of cinema by any stretch of the imagination. In 2014, we couldn't really judge a movie by its earnings. But we could judge them by their critical and fan responses. Which is where Rotten Tomatoes comes in handy. »
