28 July 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Don't mess with Owen Wilson's son Ford! During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, the actor revealed that when he was in Rome earlier this year to film Zoolander 2, his oldest son learned some serious survival skills at gladiator school. "I get there and I got drafted into gladiator school also and the guy was very intense about it," Owen explained. "I guess gladiators were all slaves or something, so he's calling you 'slave' and he's teaching you these sword moves and you had to put on a tunic. [My son] did a little better that I did." Watch the cute video above, then brush up on these 24 epic Zoolander quotes before the sequel's February release. »

Best of Late Night TV: Tom Cruise's Amazing Lip Sync Battle, 'The Bachelorette' Snapchat Explained

28 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Tom Cruise remains one of the world's greatest entertainers, and he proved it Monday night on "The Tonight Show." He and Jimmy Fallon wowed the crowd with two amazing rounds of "Lip Sync Battle," starting with Tom almost rivaling queen Emma Stone (that battle would be close) with The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" and a duet with himself in Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light." Jimmy brought his A-game too, of course, and they ended with a two-person duet of "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" -- a nice nod to "Top Gun" -- which was performed as a serenade to an embarrassed/thrilled woman in the audience. »

Tax Breaks Bringing Hollywood Productions Back to Italy

23 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The paparazzi have been busy this year chasing stars filming in the Eternal City, as Hollywood has rediscovered Italy, making the country — and Rome’s storied Cinecitta Studios — a hot destination for foreign shoots.

Competitive tax breaks, a great euro-to-dollar exchange rate, and Italy’s depth of crew and craftsmen recently lured Paramount’s “Zoolander 2” as well as MGM and Paramount’s “Ben-Hur” remake, marking the first time in at least a decade that Cinecitta has hosted two big Hollywood productions. Ron Howard’s “Inferno” and the next James Bond installment, “Spectre,” have also shot in Rome and other parts of Italy.

Growing its production sector could be a shot in the arm for the nation’s ailing economy  — after all, as former prime minister Giulio Andreotti famously said of an earlier epic film shoot, “ ‘Quo Vadis’ did more for Italy than the Marshall Plan.”

See Also: Watch the latest trailer for Masterminds here

The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work crush Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig) who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime.

Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson) and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with $17 million in cash… »

Exclusive New UK Poster For Zach Galifianakis' Masterminds

20 July 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Taking the tried-and-tested identity parade route to posterhood, Masterminds’ new UK quad introduces the heist comedy’s gallery of rogues. Roguing it up from left to right are Owen Wilson’s hapless accomplice Steve; Zach Galifianakis’ armoured car driver-turned-bank robber David; his other sidekick, Kristen Wiig’s Kelly; and Jason Sudeikis’s gormless hitman, Mike McKinney. The intellectual force is not strong in this lot.Formerly known as Loomis Fargo, the long-awaited comedy from Napoleon Dynamite's Jared Hess now goes by that more-than-a-little-ironic handle. Inspired by a true incident in 1997, the story involves armoured car driver David, who channels his antipathy for the job into a plan to liberate a fortune from a bank vault. $17 million dollars worth. Sadly for him, he’s hardly operating at Inside Man or Rififi levels of competence. The trail of evidence for the police practically comes with its own sat-nav.Double-crossed by Steve, »

20 Lines From Wedding Crashers That You Still Use All the Time

17 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This week marked the 10th anniversary of Wedding Crashers, which is both amazing and wildly depressing. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn have magical chemistry as true best friends whose favorite pastime is showing up to weddings uninvited. Not only is the comedy on point, but the movie is also grounded in some real emotions - not to mention the presence of Bradley Cooper, who had not yet become a household name. A decade later, we're still quoting the comedy every day. Here are 20 GIFs that you'll probably recognize, because you still use these lines all the time. »

Woody Allen’s Irrational Man Shouldn’t Work, But It (Kinda) Does

17 July 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Woody Allen’s philosophical thriller Irrational Man is irrationally entertaining. It shouldn’t work. It’s laughably plotted and sketchily written. Intellectually, it’s jejune — or at least high in jejunosity. But if you can manage to keep your eye-rolling in check, you might find yourself getting into it. Allen seems genuinely turned on by this crime-and-punishment fantasy and its erotic trappings, and his engagement carries you along. The Woodman has written and directed so many films so quickly that he has achieved a rare fluency: He makes remarkably smooth stilted movies.Joaquin Phoenix plays the protagonist, a piece of casting even riskier than Owen Wilson’s in Midnight in Paris. Can Phoenix — with his halting Method affect and slurry diction — embody Abe, a brilliant, alcoholic philosophy professor experiencing Kierkegaard’s “terror of freedom” while simultaneously commenting on it? Not convincingly — but compellingly. So compellingly that he doesn’t need to be convincing, »

17 July 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“This edge-of-the-seat thriller has the potential to be a razor sharp classic in the vein of ‘Silence of the Lambs, »

Emmy-Nominated 'Mad Men' Creator Matthew Weiner Says Good-Bye (Exclusive Video)

16 July 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"I thought it was right," he says. "It is what I thought it was. How it happens came later." When you talk to him—as I did at Toronto a year ago when he premiered his ill-fated movie directing debut, "Are You Here," an amiable buddy comedy starring Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis, and again just before the final season of "Mad Men" ended, at L'Ermitage Hotel—you realize the USC film school grad loves movies. That's where he's coming from, in his references and inspirations. (His question "what's the one movie and song that always makes you cry?" launches a long detour on "Stella Dallas" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow.") Like any good writer, Weiner is curious about people, listens, observes. He's intuitive. He's easy to talk to. I found myself revealing things, which surprised me. He feels safe. Now that the show is done, he's enjoying being relaxed, »

Owen Wilson and Ed Helms to star in Bastards

16 July 2015 8:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Owen Wilson has reportedly signed on to play Ed Helms’ brother in an upcoming roadtrip comedy entitled Bastards. According to THR, the film will be based on a script by Justin Malen (who’s credited for writing the newly announced Bad Teacher 2) and will serve as the directorial debut for The Hangover cinematographer Larry Sher.

Bastards follows two brothers (Wilson and Helms) who, after learning of their mother’s reputation for shacking up with famous men back in the 1970s Studio 54 scene, hit the road to track down their birth father.

Wilson, who recently co-starred in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice and is set to head the upcoming thriller No Escape (hitting theaters in late August), appears to be setting his sights back on comedy with Bastards. He is set to appear in the Jared Hess ensemble comedy Masterminds, starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, »

'Wedding Crashers' Cast: Where Are They Now?

15 July 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If "Wedding Crashers" had been a real wedding, we'd owe it a gift of tin or aluminum now, since those are the traditional 10th anniversary presents.

When the raunchy romantic comedy came out 10 years ago this week (on July 15, 2005), it proved a career highlight for stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, while pushing the careers of Isla Fisher and Bradley Cooper to the next level. In the decade since, some of the movie's stars have flourished while others have had a more tumultuous ride. Here's what's happened to the whole "Wedding" party since the last slice of cake went into the freezer.

Will Phase Three End the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

14 July 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ant-man hits theaters on Friday, and with its release marks the kick-off for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Depending on how big of a fan you are, this news will come as either exciting, or painfully boring. A surprise appearance by Agent Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Iron Man‘s credits enthralled millions of filmgoers and teased a project geeks only dreamed about. Two box-office-record-breaking Avenger films later and the shared universe has proven itself an unparalleled success in terms of commercial filmmaking, but after the long wait to see Tony, Cap, Thor, and Hulk take on Thanos is realized, the streak of Marvel characters met with open arms and another $100 million weekend may be coming to an end.
