James Franco does not take criticism of his work lightly. Currently starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, the actor was quite displeased with the review New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley gave the revival. Though Brantley’s assessment was not excessively negative – he even complimented Franco’s talent at one point — the actor posted an incensed response to the review on Instagram, calling the critic “a little bitch.” The post has since been deleted.
Brantley responded to the criticism much more diplomatically than Franco. “I like Franco’s work on film a lot, and he didn’t disgrace himself on stage, »

Shia Labeouf is in a committed relationship…with his pants. The former Transformers star (and "not famous" actor) has been spotted sporting the same pair of cropped trousers on an almost daily basis recently. We're not hating on the fact that the 27-year-old is recycling a favorite article of clothing, because we get that, but this is some next level, deep-rooted obsession type of stuff right here. Labeouf first debuted the brown bottoms back in 2012—and they looked a lot darker back then, too! Ew, gross, moving on. Whether he's in cold or warm weather, in his hometown of Los Angeles or across the world filming his next controversial indie flick, leaving the gym covered »
Joaquin Phoenix is a charming but slimy sex trafficker preying on desperate foreigner Marion Cotillard in 1920s New York City in a new trailer for James Gray's “The Immigrant.” The period drama tells the story of a Polish woman (Cotillard) trying to make it in America after being separated from her sister when they arrive at Ellis Island. Phoenix's character promises her shelter in exchange for sex with strangers, but his magician cousin, played by Jeremy Renner, may come to the rescue when he falls for the titular character.

James Franco: I invented the Oscars selfie
Franco supports Shia Labeouf
Franco played human protagonist Will Rodman in 2011's franchise reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes. With the sequel set 10 years on from the events of the first film, which *spoiler alert* saw the majority of the human race catch a bad case of the simian flu, the likely assumption was that Franco's character would have quickly perished.

Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac : Volume 2 takes us on a dark journey down the second half of a nymphomaniacs tale of lust, desire, and pain.
Nymphomaniac : Volume 2 picks up right where Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourge) left off as delves deeper about her into her life as a nymphomaniac to stranger named Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard) who had found her bloody and beaten in an ally. This half of the story begins with her discovering new love with her old fling Jerome (Shia Labeouf) and eventually starting a family with him, but the film starts to become quite darker than the first as Joe loses her ability to achieve orgasm and goes to drastic, and even dangerous lengths to find pleasure again.
For reference, here is my review of Nymphomaniac : Volume 1
As I stated in my previous review, most people assume that Lars von Trier is going to fill this »

When it was originally announced that critical pariah Michael Bay was to be directing the big screen incarnation of the nostalgically popular 1980’s vehicular metamorphoses toys The Transformers, it seemed to be the perfect match of artistic vision and material. With large scale auto-centric set-pieces already scattered throughout his CV, recall the spectacular freeway chase from the otherwise ridiculous Bad Boys 2, and a penchant for a genuinely enjoyable sense of infectious fun, evident in apologists favourites such as The Rock and Armageddon, his pyrotechnic pornographic sensibilities would make real the plastic clashes between the Autobots and Decepticons in a way every big kid dreamed of.
A franchise on the verge of Extinction? No chance.
The notion that Age of Extinction is a “reboot” isn’t an altogether welcome one, because for all of the crass, ibuprofen accompanied volume control, and Nuts magazine incarnate issues scattered throughout Revenge of the »

So what’s the deal with Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age Of Extinction”? Is it a reboot or do over now that Shia Labeouf is no longer part of the series? Apparently, the only rebooting Bay is doing is changing leads. The destruction of Chicago at the end of “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” is still in play in the upcoming sequel, and the outcome of that disaster turned humanity against the Transformers, so now they’re all in hiding. “Optimus has lost all faith in humankind and I’m trying to convince him there is still good in the world and we need to work together,” new star Mark Wahlberg said in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. Or as Bay says, “[Optimus] has done good for earth, and he’s been f–ked over.” What else is going on in the movie? Well, there’s a gigantic dinobot named Grimlocke, »

Recently, "Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction" movie director, Michael Bay, dished out new spoilery intel to Entertainment Weekly, and revealed that Transformers 4 is just the start of a brand new trilogy that's in development. He also talked about the mysterious Lockdown Transformer, and more. He started off by saying: "It’s kind of like a new Transformers. We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one. Yeah, it’s the first of a new trilogy. I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing the others, but that’s what it’s meant for." Next, he touched upon the Dinobots, particularly Grimlock, stating, "I like to keep things very much in the dark. But yes, you’ll understand why they’re there when you see the movie. If you think I’m supposed to give away a lot of story points? No way! »
It has been widely reported in the past that Transformers: Age of Extinction is the start of a whole new trilogy, with a reworked cast that includes Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor, along with a host of new and old Transformers. When asked where this particular movie fits in with the original three, Michael Bay confirmed that it is meant to be a separate storyline that will continue on in two more films. Though he isn't sure he'll be back to helm those future installments, with Transformers 5 debuting in 2017.
"It's kind of like a new Transformers. We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one. Yeah, it's the first of a new trilogy. I'm not necessarily sure that I'm doing [the others], but that's what it's meant for."
Entertainment Weekly debuted a fresh look at Dinobot Grimlock and the Transformer bounty hunter known as Lockdown, »
The already far-reaching “Transformers” universe is about to expand even wider.
“It’s kind of like a new Transformers,” Bay told Entertainment Weekly. “We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one. It’s the first of a new trilogy. I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing [the others], but that’s what it’s meant for.”
The last film, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” grossed $1.1 billion worldwide in 2011 — the highest of all three pics. Overall, the franchise has hauled $2.6 billion in the global box office.

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got a great new shot of the fan favourite Dinobot Grimlock, who is set to make his live-action debut this summer in Paramount Pictures’ sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction…
Meanwhile, speaking to EW, director Michael Bay has spoken about the upcoming movie, stating that, “It’s kind of like a new Transformers. It’s the first of a new trilogy. I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing [the others], but that’s what it’s meant for.”
“It’s all good. [Labeouf] is a good guy, but three movies, the same guy, it’s time, you know what I’m saying. It’s always good to freshen it up and change the story… It »

If your appetite for shape-shifting alien robots is insatiable, well, buddy … open wide.
Michael Bay tells EW that this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction will herald the arrival of at least two more battling ‘bot movies. He thinks of it not as Transformers 4, but as more of a reboot — even though he’s still running the show.
“It’s kind of like a new Transformers,” Bay says. “We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one.” The next…trilogy? “Yeah, it’s the first of a new trilogy,” he says after a moment of hesitation. »

The Starz Network is teaming up with Project Greenlight producer Chris Moore on its first unscripted series, The Chair. The filmmaking docuseries will pit two up-and-coming directors against one another as they work to bring the same script to the big screen. The film in question is a coming-of-age comedy called How Soon is Now, about a group of college freshmen coming home for Thanksgiving. The two filmmakers are Shane Dawson, a successful YouTube comedian with over ten million YouTube subscribers, and Anna Martemucci, who wrote and starred in the indie film Breakup at a Wedding. This battle of film-school archetypes will be overseen by a team of mentors, including Star Trek and American Horror Story star Zachary Quinto. Sounds promising, but it will be hard to top Project Greenlight, the show that not only introduced the world to Shia Labeouf, but also gave us Ben Affleck’s glorious Chris Moore impression. »

Sneak Peek more Nsfw footage from the dramatic feature "Nymphomaniac", a two-part film, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Uma Thurman, Mia Goth, Shia Labeouf, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater and Connie Nielsen:
"...'Joe' (Gainsbourg), who is a self-diagnosed 'nymphomaniac' sex addict, is found by 'Seligman' (Skarsgård) beaten in an alley. Seligman takes her home to care for her, and Joe recounts the story of her life, from birth to the age of 50..."
"We are making two films", said the film's producer.
"It is a big operation...We will shoot both and edit both – and we want to finish both at the same time."
Jensen also confirmed there will be two versions of each film: an 'explicit' cut and a 'softer' cut.
"The movie is what you think it is," said former "Transformers" star Labeouf.
"For instance, there's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically »

On April 2, photos and screen grabs of text messages and Instagram exchanges appeared online, allegedly proving that Franco flirted with a young woman he connected with on Instagram after meeting her outside the stage door of his Broadway play Of Mice and Men. Lucy Clode, a 17-year-old Scottish tourist, was the receiver of Franco’s suggestive messages, and she was reportedly in town to celebrate her upcoming 18th birthday. Clode waited outside the stage door and took a quick Instagram video with Franco, in which he told her to tag him. Clode did, and the two began to exchange comments on Instagram before moving over to text messages.
The conversations and photos of the conversations latter posted by Clode have been deleted, »
Looking ahead at the 2014 schedule, which movies*if any*have a chance at reaching the coveted $1 billion mark?With Frozen recently passing $1 billion and the Summer movie season right around the corner, now is as good a time as any to dive in to this question.To date, only 16 movies have reached this level in their initial runs (Jurassic Park and The Phantom Menace needed 3D re-releases). With the rapid expansion of the foreign marketplace and the addition of 3D premiums, the chance of getting to $1 billion is higher than ever: in the past three years alone, nine different movies have made it there. Of those nine, only one (Frozen) was an original movie. The rest are sequels, which were all able to grow an existing fanbase (rather than create one from scratch). It should be no surprise, then, that the 2014 releases with the best chance of reaching $1 billion are mostly franchise titles. »

My review of Nymphomaniac: Vol. I can be found here. Both volumes are now playing locally at the Violet Crown Cinema and are also available to rent through cable & digital VOD providers, including iTunes.
While the first installment of Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac focused on Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) graphically retelling the stories of her sexual history as a young woman to Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), Nymphomaniac: Vol. II shifts to her adulthood. She's on an endless quest to recreate the enormity of feeling from a spontaneous orgasm she once experienced as a pre-teen, but as the story picks back up, we're at a stage where she basically has lost all sexual desire and, even worse, any pleasure from having sex. Joe has gone numb and can no longer have an orgasm, a loss that nearly destroys her ability to function. She goes on a quest to "rehabilitate her sexuality" and »

Magic Mike 2 nabs a new director and an official title; a new Pink Panther movie is in the works; Zac Efron replaces Shia Labeouf in The Associate; the Jem and the Holograms movie starts shooting in three weeks; Key and Peele will produce the Police Academy remake; and Roland Emmerich snags a new action-thriller script.
Although it’s been a few a weeks since we last heard any news regarding the Magic Mike sequel, the upcoming film is reportedly starting to pick up steam. In fact, according to co-star Joe Manganiello, Magic Mike 2 will start filming this fall.
“Yeah, it’s gonna happen this fall. I think they’re going to announce it soon. It’s crazy. I didn’t think that would be my first franchise. I never thought that would ever be the direction of my career. But that said, it’s just proof that »
