Jena Malone and Joanna Newsom Talk Inherent Vice, Working With Paul Thomas Anderson, and Parsing Through Thomas Pynchon

23 December 2014 2:04 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I don't believe Jena Malone and Joanna Newsom's characters come into physical contact during the runtime of Inherent Vice, but they inhabit the more optimistic side of the journey Joaquin Phoenix's Doc Sportello embarks on in the film (Newsom also narrates the picture and remains unwaveringly gory in that regard as well).  Accompanied by a few other journalists, I recently sat down with Malone and Newsom to talk about their roles in the film and what it was like being transported back into the 70's. Inherent Vice is now playing in limited release before going wide on January 9th.  It was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson from a script he adapted from the novel by Thomas Pynchon.   It also stars Josh BrolinKatherine WaterstonOwen WilsonReese WitherspoonBenicio Del ToroEric RobertsMartin ShortSasha Pieterse, and more.  I heartily (and respectfully) disagree with Matt’s review »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening of Inherent Vice in St. Louis

23 December 2014 8:26 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Inherent Vice: A hidden defect in a good or property which causes or contributes to its deterioration, damage, or wastage. These defects of an inherent nature make the item an unacceptable risk to a carrier or insurer. Examples of inherent vice include spontaneous combustion, rust, etc.

Inherent Vice, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s seventh and funniest novel, is the seventh film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson—and the very first film adaptation ever of Pynchon’s legendarily inventive, culturally kaleidoscopic work. A surf noir, the story dives headlong into the smoky haze and neon afterglow of the American counterculture via a psychedelic spin on the classic detective yarn.

When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his »

Ben Stiller wants Cara Delevingne in Zoolander 2

23 December 2014 8:24 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Ben Stiller ''definitely'' wants Cara Delevingne to appear in 'Zoolander 2'. Talks over the sequel to the 2001 hit comedy film have been going on since 2008 and in a new interview, Stiller has confirmed a script for the much-anticipated movie has been written - and the comedian is keen to cast the 22-year-old model-turned-actress. Asked for an update on the project, Stiller told MTV: ''There is a script, I won't deny there's a script, and there's been a reading of the script... but it hasn't yet been fully formulated.'' And Stiller confirmed he ''definitely would'' like Delevingne - who was linked to the movie earlier this year - to feature in the film. Meanwhile, Owen Wilson, who also appeared in the original 'Zoolander' movie and is expected to return for the sequel, has praised the quality of the script for the new film. He said: ''I »

The 10 Best Trailers of 2014

23 December 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

At the end of the day, trailers often make or break a film. A trailer can quickly turn “Why are they making a movie about a talking raccoon?” into box office gold. On the other side of the coin, a bad trailer could dampen our sky-high hopes for an upcoming franchise sequel. Terminator: Genisys, I’m looking at you.

Some trailers give away too much about the movie, and some too little. There are, however, a handful of trailers that are a perfect blend of plot, style, and tease – and 2014 had some great examples.

But what were the best?

Sorry, trailer for The Grand Budapest Hotel, you were great, but you hit the Internet last October. Yes, it’s awesome to have a new Avengers trailer, but is it really the best of the year? Even with its unsettling use of “I’ve Got No Strings,” we’re going to say no. »

Review: The new 'Night At The Museum' is exactly the same as the first two films

22 December 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In many ways, the "Night At The Museum" movies represent a near-perfect distillation of what Hollywood wants from its franchises. That is not a compliment. The three films in the series are interchangeable because none of the films seem to advance the characters or the premise beyond "Magical tablets bring things alive in a museum at night," and for the audience that keeps turning out to see these films, that seems like all they want or need from them. This one opens in Egypt, decades ago, as the magical tablet is discovered for the first time and a dire warning of a curse is ignored completely. We then flash forward to find that Larry (Ben Stiller) is still a security guard, but he is also somehow in charge of all the "special effects" for a major fundraiser that is being held. I'm not sure many major metropolitan museums put their »

22 December 2014 1:32 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release next month, two new posters have arrived online for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, featuring Josh Brolin and Reese Witherspoon

And that’s not all, as we also have a couple of clips for you here…

When private eye Doc Sportello’s (Joaquin Phoenix) ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.

Review: 'Night at the Museum: Secret Of The Tomb' With Ben Stiller, Dan Stevens, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams & More

22 December 2014 6:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As far as hooky family movie conceits go, the "Night at the Museum" franchise is centered around a pretty adorable one (one that, it should be noted, is based on a 32-page children's book of the same name by Milan Trenc): thanks to an enchanted tablet, every night after dark, the exhibits at the American Museum of Natural History come to life. A night watchman, played by Ben Stiller, finds out the secret and has to keep all of the museum's inhabitants inside the museum. For a single movie, even under the artless direction of Shawn Levy, the idea played well, especially with a supporting cast stocked with comedic heavyweights like Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais and Dick Van Dyke. With the original film, there was enough genuine whimsy to sustain, but now, with the third film, "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," even »

‘Mr. Turner’ Paints A Solid Box-Office Bow; ‘Inherent Vice,’ ‘Imitation Game’ Take Top PTAs

21 December 2014 11:17 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Sony Classics’ Mr. Turner had a near masterpiece of a theatrical debut in limited release, creating director Mike Leigh‘s highest per-theater average for any of his titles opening on multiple screens. But holdovers Inherent Vice from Warner Bros and TWC’s The Imitation Game took the highest and second-highest averages this weekend, while Whiplash, Citizenfour and Force Majeure all passed notable milestones in their on-screen runs.

Mr. Turner, starring Timothy Spall, grossed $108,638 for a $21,728 average in five theaters.

“This is the perfect alternative to the big Hollywood blockbuster,” said Spc co-president Michael Barker. “This movie is really going to cross over. The reason we wanted to become involved with this film years ago is that Turner is the first modern painter. He bridged the gap between the classical and the modern, and his fans range in all ages. Young people are also very interested in seeing this film.”

Shawn Levy and the Cast of Night At The Museum Secret Of The Tomb: Who Can Do the Best Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller Impression?

20 December 2014 3:09 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jedediah (Owen Wilson), Octavius (Steve Coogan), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Attila The Hun (Patrick Gallagher), Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck) and the rest of the Museum of Natural History exhibits are back for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, but the magical tablet that brings them to life at night is losing its powers.  Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) doesn’t know how to restore it, but he thinks his father might.  The problem is, his father is on display at London's British Museum so Larry’s (Ben Stiller) got no choice, but to cross the Atlantic to save his friends. With the new installment hitting theaters this weekend, I got the opportunity to meet my favorite actor from the Night at the Museum films, Crystal the Monkey who plays Dexter.  After that, I decided it’d be cool to make some time to talk to director Shawn Levy, Wilson, Stiller and »

Box Office: ‘Hobbit’ Finale Marching Toward $88 Million

20 December 2014 8:20 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” is marching toward a box office victory.

The final installment of Peter Jackson’s “Hobbit” trilogy grossed $16.6 million on Friday in the U.S. on its way to hauling almost $54 million this weekend, which would put its five-day total at $88 million. This is far above recent estimates of $80 million.

The fantasy adventure is miles ahead of the other newcomers this pre-Christmas weekend. Another sequel, “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” is headed for $19 million, while the reboot of “Annie” trails slightly behind with $18.5 million. The films are in a neck-and-neck race after initial forecasts as late as Friday pegged “Secret of the Tomb” as the clear winner.

Aside from giving a much-needed boost to the U.S. box office, if estimates hold, “Five Armies” will have the year’s eighth highest-grossing opening, behind “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
