'Mortdecai' TV Spots: Johnny Depp Saves the World

18 December 2014 2:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you loved Johnny Depp's quirky, unexpected turn in this fall's horror comedy Tusk, you'll surely want to check out his next mad creation for the big screen in Mortdecai. The caper comedy only has a little more than a month before it hits cinemas across the country. Lionsgate has released two new TV spots from this David Koepp directed adventure, which show Depp having a lot of fun.

Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and a special charm. He is in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account. Will this painting lead him to a treasure filled with Nazi gold?

This international adventure also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Munn, »

Watch This Sexy, Tantalizing Lingerie Ad Written and Directed by Penélope Cruz

22 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When Penélope Cruz isn’t busy making out with Scientologists, palling around with Pedro Almodóvar, or being addicted to breastfeeding, she’s apparently writing and directing sexy ads for Agent Provocateur. Cruz’s flesh-baring video for the British lingerie brand features a group of models in the desert and one very helpless man. We’ll let you uncover the threadbare narrative for yourself — and we’re taking bets on whether or not the women perform an aerobics routine or actually dance. Don’t blink and miss the Cruz cameo, too. You can catch the Spanish actress in the upcoming Louis Leterrier film Grimsby with Isla Fisher and Rebel Wilson — cowritten by Sacha Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham. [via Design...

Sacha Baron Cohen kisses Rebel Wilson on set of hooligan comedy Grimsby

18 August 2014 4:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sacha Baron Cohen was pictured kissing his co-star Rebel Wilson on the set of comedy caper Grimsby in South Africa over the weekend (August 17).

The 42-year-old actor was spotted wearing an England shirt and a red and white novelty hat while sporting an uneven fringe and long sideburns, as he shot scenes in Cape Town.

The Malay quarter was transformed into a city in Chile during filming of a fictional football match between the South American country and England.

Baron Cohen and Pitch Perfect star Wilson were seen kissing tenderly on the lips, surrounded by fellow football supporters cheering and waving flags while milling around after the match.

The Louis Leterrier-directed spy spoof stars Mark Strong as a black ops agent who goes on the run with his long lost hooligan brother (Baron Cohen). The Borat star co-wrote the screenplay along with Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham.

Sacha Baron Cohen Films 'Grimsby' In England With Mark Strong

9 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sacha Baron Cohen was dressed in character on the streets of Essex while filming scenes for Grimsby Thursday afternoon with costar Mark Strong.

Sacha Baron Cohen, Mark Strong Film Grimsby

For the day on set, Cohen looked nearly unrecognizable in a shaggy wig with bangs and mutton chops stretching down to his chin. In his role as a British soccer hooligan, Cohen sported a English national team jersey paired with wide-legged jean capris and sport sandals with socks. The Borat actor also appeared to be wearing a fake beer belly under his jersey top.

In the comedy feature, Cohen plays a supporter of lower league squad Grimsby Town, in Purfleet, England. The hapless soccer junkie is ultimately roped into a spy mission with his brother – a James Bond-styled spy agent played by Strong.

Cohen’s wife Isla Fisher, Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson, Ian McShane and Gabourey Sidibe are all among the cast. »

Sacha Baron Cohen's New Look For Spy Comedy Grimsby Leaked By Eric Idle

3 July 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

So who did I bump into on my walk today but my La neighbour? He's here filming. I love coincidence. pic.twitter.com/JHp2lbzptj. Eric Idle (@EricIdle) July 3, 2014 Monty Python member and comedy legend Eric Idle is fond of sharing pictures of himself and his friends on his Twitter account. Today, one of Idle's impromptu pics proved newsworthy as the self-proclaimed sillographer revealed our first look at Sacha Baron Cohen in his Grimsby hair and makeup. Check it out above: Written by Sacha Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston, and Peter Baynham, Grimsby stars the outrageous English comedian as the screw-up soccer hooligan brother of one of the United Kingdom's greatest secret agents, played here by Mark Strong. The two are forced to pair up in an unusual assignment, and presumably sparks fly and hilarity ensues. In the pic above, it's hard to tell how much of this getup is official »

Isla Fisher Joins Cast Of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Grimsby

13 June 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Might Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen’s off-screen marriage finally translate into on-screen romance? That appears to be the case now that the actress has been added to the rapidly expanding cast of Baron Cohen’s spy spoof Grimsby.

We don’t know exactly which role Fisher will be taking on, but the gorgeous redhead has been rumored for the part of “a femme fatale or other comely vixen,” according to THR. As far as we’re concerned, that’s pretty perfect casting.

News of Fisher signing on comes on the heels of Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson joining the film, which Louis Leterrier is directing for Sony. Though it’s definitely exciting that Fisher and Baron Cohen are sharing the screen, Grimsby will also mark a reunion for Leterrier and Fisher, who last worked together on the very successful magician crime caper Now You See Me. From what we know about Grimsby already, »
