The 35-year-old actor/director/writer/student/professor/artist/drag-queen impersonator took to a wall near Bedford Avenue and Grand Street in Brooklyn's art-friendly Williamsburg neighborhood. There he threw up a colorful but rather crude portrait of himself, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson.
The title of the mural is, naturally, "This Is the End." Gawker reports that Franco was working with Sky High Murals, which is responsible for many large-scale advertising murals seen around New York and other cities.
This marks another avenue of promoting the apocalyptic comedy, due in theaters June 12. Directed by Evan Goldberg ("Superbad," "Pineapple Express") and Rogen, "This Is the End" features select members of the Judd Apatow clan portraying fictional versions of themselves following a global apocalypse. »

No matter how much you love and respect really great film making, everyone has a film that they know is trash but still adore it. There are just some films that can somehow be both terrible yet charming at the same time and other films that spark little memories for us and mean we end up loving a film regardless of its score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Everyone has their preferences but there are certain types of film which tend to fall into this ‘guilty pleasure’ category. Sometimes you see a trailer and you can tell that it looks rubbish but someone out there will love it! A guilty pleasure however, is something we love but something we really don’t like letting others know about.
Here are six film genres and types that are commonly people’s guilty pleasures.

The movie is set to be released on June 14th, 2013. Enjoy the clip!

Man of many talents James Franco has created a very special piece of advertising for his forthcoming Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen–directed "apocalyptic comedy" This Is the End. Photographer Clare Thigpen sent Gawker some shots of Franco (and a couple assistants) painting a mural of co-stars Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and himself on a wall near Bedford Avenue and Grand Street in Williamsburg on Saturday. According to Gawker, the piece is supposed to be "a tribute to all his good friends, and all the fun they had while making their new film." In contrast to the spirit of the project, Franco looks a pretty bored (or at least more interested in his phone) in the pictures, probably because promoting a movie is way less fun than making one. Either way, we expect that it will be thoroughly defaced by the end of the weekend, »

Paul Haggis’ new pic, “Third Person” is scoring brisk biz for Belgian production and sales company Corsan, which has announced sales to 23 markets of the triple-tiered relationship drama with an ensemble cast comprising Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde and Kim Basinger.
Sales on “Third,” which previously shopped at Toronto and Berlin, now include China (Hgc Ent.), Russia (Top Film), India (One World), France (Synergy), Japan (Presidio), Latin America (Playarte) and Middle East (Eagle).
Pic, now in post, had been pre-sold to Italy’s Moviemax Media Group during last year’s Toronto Film Festival, just before the start of shooting at Rome’s Cinecitta studios, where it tapped into Italo rebates.
Fully financed through Corsan, which has a business model based on Belgian tax breaks, “Third Person” interweaves three separate love stories in three cities: Rome, Paris, and New York. »

The weather in Cannes went from bad to absolutely miserable Saturday, as temperatures dropped, dark clouds gathered and a bracing wind kicked up off the Cote d’Azure, sending event planners scrambling to prevent their long-anticipated weekend parties from being washed out and laid to waste. "It’s great movie-watching weather!," exclaimed Palme d'Or winner and former Cannes jury president Wim Wenders, optimistically, when asked about the deluge. Moments later, however, the director of Pina -- in town to drum up pre-sales for his new 3D drama Everything Will Be Fine starring James Franco -- had to seek new shelter

Kate Hudson posed with a newspaper for a fun photoshoot in Beverly Hills yesterday. She was accompanied on the set by her pregnant sister-in-law, Erinn Bartlett, who is married to Kate's brother Oliver Hudson. Erinn looked after Kate's son Bingham Bellamy while Kate got pretty for the cameras. Kate mixed work and family after taking time out to focus on those closest to her earlier this month. She visited a winery in Santa Barbara in the company of her fiancé, Matthew Bellamy, and her stepdad Kurt Russell last week and also spent a sunny day with Bing and Matthew at the beach. Kate will soon have even more to juggle since she's due to begin filming her new project Good People with James Franco in London this month. View Slideshow › »

Acclaimed German director Wim Wenders will avoid the flash and style of Baz Luhrmann's 3D lensing of Cannes festival opener The Great Gatsby for his new 3D drama, Every Thing Will Be Fine, starring James Franco. "The Great Gatsby is not our idea of 3D at all,” Wenders told The Hollywood Reporter, "I don't want to criticize Baz's work in any way but our idea of 3D is very different. Our idea is not at all effect driven but character driven and story driven. All these American films and blockbusters use 3D as an attraction in itself, which we

James Franco is one of those dudes who is pretty Ok at a lot of things, but not really outstanding at anything, you know? He's a pretty good actor, he does all right to mediocre art, if you're into that sort of thing, and depending on your viewpoint, he's pretty decent at being an academic. But there's no one thing that he just shines at. That is, until now.James Franco is amazing at writing really funny reviews for movies that he isn't in! Isn't that wonderful? Let's take "The Great Gatsby," for instance. Wouldn't it be so lame if James starred in that movie? But now what if he just reviewed it? Then that, friends, is pure gold.Here's all the proof you need:"Gatsby’s desire is revealed to be that of a 16-year-old boy: not only does he want to win Daisy, he wants to control her affections. »

The film in question, an adaption of William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying," is a movie of the same name, directed by James Franco. Oh, and he stars in it, too, because of course he does. But wait! Don't let that turn you off -- as it appears, the trailer looks pretty interesting, and if we're lucky, the award-nominated film that premieres at Cannes this year might make it to the Us for release. "As I Lay Dying" is definitely a more somber departure from James' recent projects (like "Oz: The Great and Powerful." And "Spring Breakers"), and revolves around a family in preparation for their mother's burial, all according to her last wishes. The moral of the story (well, this story; not Faulkner's story) is that if nothing else, James Franco is one ambitious dude. Even if you think he's pretty obnoxious and can't get the image of »

The apocalypse scenario in This Is the End hasn't been explained, but it looks like the film is employing more than one. There are people being abducted by aliens, the ground opening up to swallow Aziz Ansari, monsters, and now, according to Emma Watson, zombies. There's a good joke in here of the guys reacting to the news, but this clip seems to be a lead-in to a better scene, and I'm excited to see how Watson plays into the comedy. Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film stars Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson. This Is The End opens June 12th. Click over to Yahoo!

Get your Friday funnies from this new clip taken directly from Seth Rogen's latest comical venture into the apocalypse. 'This is the End' opens in the Us on 12 June and here in the UK from 28 June and I'm sure it's hoping to trump Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's upcoming 'The World's End' in the post-apocalyptic laugh stakes. This new feature which stars Rogen and his buddies as twisted versions of theirselves all appear in the new clip which sees Emma Watson -below ('Harry Potter') join the gang boarded up and surviving against the mysterious events occuring outside those very walls. Jay Baruchel ('She's Out of My League'), James Franco ('Oz: The Great and Powerful'), Jonah Hill ('Superbad') and Craig Robinson ('Hot Tub Time Machine') also star. Check out the new clip below. »

Emma Watson, Kevin Hart, Aziz Ansari, and Michael Cera are also featured in the movie. This Is the End hits theaters June 14th, 2013.

Here’s the deal. What they are trying to accomplish is to make “The Iceman” or Richard Kuklinski a compelling character that you feel compassion for. The story is based on Kuklinski, so he is the main focus. The murders, unfortunately, fall a bit flat. Despite focusing on his hundreds of kills, they shine more of the limelight on his love for his family. I feel that some might be disappointed with the lack of focus on the murders, but the film itself concentrates more on the man. The script feels a bit weak still. All of the compassion felt for Kuklinski comes from Michael Shannon. He is a fantastic actor who offers a complete dimension of layers. Still, the writing doesn’t begin to do justice to what they »

The recent behind-the-scenes featurette for apocalypse comedy This Is The End made much of its wide array of celebrity cameos, and the latest clip follows a similar pattern, with Emma Watson shacking up with the boys at James Franco’s house. With all of La seemingly a burning wasteland outside, Watson tips up clutching an axe and talking about an impending zombie holocaust. Naturally, this is disturbing news, although Franco seems more concerned about how the sleeping arrangements are going to pan out... Take a look, below: ...
