Watch: First Fun Teaser Trailer for 'Zoolander 2' Starring Ben Stiller

10 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If God exists, then why did he make ugly people?" Paramount has unveiled the first official teaser trailer for Ben Stiller's highly anticipated sequel Zoolander 2, starring Ben Stiller and directed by Ben Stiller. The cast includes a whole bunch of other names, but this teaser only features Stiller as Derek Zoolander and some fun CGI animation. Oh, and Stephen Hawking's voice, or so it sounds like it's him. Owen Wilson did show up at the catwalk event earlier this year, so he's still in the mix in this somewhere. This teaser is presumably playing in front of Mission: Impossible all weekend, but in the meantime you can catch it below. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Ben Stiller's Zoolander 2, found on YouTube: Zoolander 2 is written and directed by Justin Theroux (writer of Tropic Thunder, director of Dedication). Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprise »

Five "Must-See" Movies for August 2015

19 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, it's finally August, and while the summer movie season isn't completely over it might as well be. This article was a difficult one to put together, because there just isn't much to recommend this month. But you know what, that's okay, I think I managed to pull together five solid titles for the "must-see" section, and lucky for us the fall festival season is just around the corner, which means things are about to heat up exponentially on the prestige movie front just in time to compensate for things cooling down outside as the seasons change. (I should note here, it is currently 106 degrees fahrenheit here in the desert, and the thought of things cooling down is marvelous, but also very premature.) We are coming off what turned out to be a pretty solid month last month, in my opinion, as I settled back into my routine after a »

Relativity Bankruptcy: The Fallout for Its Movies

30 July 2015 7:44 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Relativity, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection today, may be shedding films. But with an auction now pending, lenders have a vested interest in seeing the company remain in the film business. And to do that, a restructured Relativity will need to keep some product in the pipeline. With the company’s future very much in flux, Relatively remains committed to the release of at least two films, Masterminds and Kidnap, and hopes to start production on a third, The Crow, this fall, according to one insider. Masterminds, the heist comedy starring Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson, is currently slated

Watch Owen Wilson's Son Ford Dominate Gladiator School in Rome (Yes, That Is a Thing)

28 July 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | 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

In this action comedy based on true events, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite; Nacho Libre), David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams. He is an uncomplicated man stuck in a monotonous life. Day in and day out he drives an armored vehicle, transporting millions of other people’s money with no escape in sight. 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, »

The project, based on Carla Norton’s 2013 novel, is being produced by Bold’s Michel Litvak, Matthew Rhodes and Lisa Zambri, along with Industry Entertainment’s Andrew Deane. Bold’s Gary Michael Walters will executive produce, along with Industry’s Ava Jamshidi.

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, »
