Watch: 'True Detective' Star Michelle Monaghan Goes To War In 'Fort Bliss' Trailer

7 April 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After booking what will likely be a thankless role in Adam Sandler's "Pixels," we began to worry that producers didn't know what to do with "True Detective" star Michelle Monaghan. Luckily, we were wrong. There are still some interesting roles headed toward the actress, you may just have to look harder to find them. Claudia Myers writes and directs this drama about a woman and soldier who returns home from five years in Afghanistan and tries to become a mother again, to a young son who doesn't recognize or remember her. The story follows her journey as she tries to walk the line between her duty as a parent and a patriot. It's an interesting take on the war drama, and, while the notes seem familiar, here's hoping it's the actors who bring it up a level or two. Co-starring Ron Livingston, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Freddy Rodriguez, Dash Mihok and more, »

Blu-ray Review: Office Comedy ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ Has a Case of the Mondays

31 March 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Without rescue of a creative joke in sight, “Welcome to the Jungle” eventually devolves into an unsavory mash of “The Office” meets “Lord of the Flies”. Adam Brody’s Chris Myers is the lead character in a cube monkey’s generic fantasy, of which this film treats with a checklist. The attractive and amiable office mate (played by Megan Boone of Chicago Film Critics Festival favorite “Leave Me Like You Found Me”) is to be wooed, a manchild boss (Rob Huebel) is to be dethroned from his ego, and a world of freedom is to be revealed for those who have imprisoned themselves to 9-5 pressures.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

This pride against office doldrums would certainly ring true were Rob Meltzer’s film not a champion of mundaneness itself. Refusing to think outside of stereotypical characters, or even toy with a new way to make a penis joke, its humor matches »

‘Conjuring’ Sequels May Be Put on Hold by Suit

31 March 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. and New Line have been hit with a copyright lawsuit seeking to block production of sequels to their hit horror film “The Conjuring.”

The suit, filed Friday by Evergreen Media Group and Tony Derosa-Grund in federal court in Houston, alleges theft of the underlying rights to the case files of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

For its part, Warner said that the suit is “improper” and noted that New Line filed a claim against Evergreen last year over rights to a “Conjuring” TV series that has gone to arbitration.

“New Line has been and is vigorously defending itself against these spurious claims in a binding arbitration proceeding in Los Angeles, and therefore the Texas filing is both procedurally and substantively improper,” the studio said.

New Line has set its “Conjuring” sequel for a pre-Halloween release on Oct. 23, 2015, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga returning to star. »

Office Space Screening at Schlafly Bottleworks March 28th

19 March 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Looks like you have a bad case of the Mondays”

“If they movie my desk again I’m quitting”

“I’m going to need you to come in on Saturday, and also come in on Sunday too”

“Are you related to the Michael Bolton?”

There are so many famous quotes from Office Space!

If you are working for a big company, especially if you are in software business, you will find yourself in Office Space, an irreverent comedy from 1999 starring Ron Livingston and Jennifer Aniston that makes fun of the inanities of work–particularly in a cubicle-ed office where the bosses are morons (not that any of us have ever worked in such an environment, mind you). The film is made up of lots of odd but relatable personalities and the characters are all funny and memorable. The story centers around Peter Gibbons, an office drone who is very fed »

Casting Net: Ryan Gosling might play Busby Berkeley; Plus, Channing Tatum, more

19 March 2014 6:08 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Ryan Gosling may direct and star in a biopic of famed director and choreographer Busby Berkeley. Warner Bros. has optioned Jeffrey Spivak’s book Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley for Gosling and Marc Platt (Drive) to produce. Berkeley was known for his elaborate, geographic dance numbers in studio musicals such as 42nd Street and Golddiggers of 1933. He moved on to directing films like Babes on Broadway and For Me and My Gal. It’s still very early in the process, and no writer is currently attached. [THR]

Channing Tatum is reportedly in talks to co-direct an adaption »

This Is What Jason Segel Looks Like As David Foster Wallace In 'The End Of The Tour'

19 March 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Somewhere beyond the grave, David Foster Wallace is writing a great essay with extensive footnotes about the fact that Jason Segel will be playing him in a movie. Yep, the late Pulitzer Prize finalist will be portrayed by the guy who got his dick out and wrote a puppet musical in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." It's kinda poetic, in a strange way. Production on the film, "The End Of The Tour," which co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and just added Ron Livingston, is now underway, and someone with a handy cell phone snapped the first image and took some quick video of Segel in action. Granted, it's not much, but we'll say this—Segel at least resembles the headwrap wearing Wallace. As for the movie, it's based on David Lipsky’s “Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace,” his account of traveling with Wallace on »

Six of the Best 21st Century Indie Comedies

10 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Indie comedies sadly still don’t get the attention or financial success they deserve, while trash like The Hangover Part III earns over $360 million worldwide. Even so, films like these do seem to be getting much more in the way of awards attention, especially as actors sick of big budget blockbusters begin to gravitate towards them.

Today sees the home entertainment launch of Drinking Buddies, Joe Swanberg’s lilt-lined relationship comedy starring Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston, Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson. We are big fans of the film, talking with the cast and crew at its London Film Festival Premiere and giving the film itself a rave review, this can be seen as a shining example of the topic at hand here.

When it comes to Indie comedies, there are literally dozens of superb additions which have been added to the genre since the beginning of the 21st Century, but »

Ashley Greene Transforms Into Priscilla Presley, Rocks a Retro Bathing Suit for Shangri-La Suite

8 March 2014 4:26 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ashley Greene is transforming into Elvis Presley's former ladylove. The 27-year-old Twilight actress stars in the upcoming indie film The Shangri-La Suite as Priscilla Presley, alongside Ron Livingston, who plays the late King of Rock 'n' Roll. In one of the shots taken on the set, Greene rocks a retro yellow bathing suit and smiles wide, as she films a scene with Emily Browning and Alyvia Alyn Lind, who portrays the couple's then six-year-old daughter Lisa Marie Presley. Livingston, meanwhile, sports Elvis' signature sideburns and haircut in the film, and rocks open shirts to show off his chubby belly. The film, which takes place in 1974, centers on two troubled mental hospital »

Poker Night: Dead Man’s Hand

8 March 2014 5:11 AM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

The Horror, the Horror!

Why isn’t there a quality, poker-themed horror movie? The title, "Poker Night: Dead Man's Hand," is a bit campy, but so are many horror movies. Imagine eight college grads uniting on a remote island for a night of boozing and strip poker. The plot writes itself. One by one, the clothing layers are removed and one by one, the players get lured from the table and slaughtered in a most grizzly fashion.

At the end, there is only one person left, and she (it has to be a she) is forced to play our killer in a poker game to the death. All you can see is the killer’s eyes behind a Yoda mask (or any other mask that terrifies you), as he deals the cards on the blood-soaked table. The girl shivers, forced to face her fears while playing the most important game of her life. »

You've Got to See Ron Livingston as Fat Elvis

7 March 2014 12:21 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Actors playing real people have really been nailing it lately. First, there was Dane DeHaan as James Dean, and now Ron Livingston is taking on the role of Elvis Presley for The Shangri-La Suite. And he's not doing the most glam version of the King, he's doing what's colloquially referred to as "fat Elvis." The movie is about a man (Luke Grimes) who sets out to kill Elvis in 1974 (when he was at the height of his Las Vegas fame), and Ashley Greene - whom you can also see here - plays Priscilla Presley. These are must-see pictures, people. View Slideshow › »

Ron Livingston Wears Speedo as Fat Elvis on Set of The Shangri-La Suite: Picture

Rock 'n' role! Elvis conspirators, that's not the King… it's Ron Livingston. The Office Space star was photographed on the Studio City, Calif. set of The Shangri-La Suite on Thursday, Mar. 6 -- morphing into Elvis Presley in a speedo and bathrobe for the upcoming indie flick. To summon Presley during his heftier, later years, Livingston, 46, appears to have gained weight for his role in the pseudo-biopic. While on set Thursday, the Boardwalk Empire actor sported Presley's famous sideburns and shades while walking around with an [...] »

Drinking Buddies DVD Review

3 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Joe Swanberg

Starring: Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston, Jason Sudeikis

Running Time: 90 minutes

Certificate: 15

I do believe that as you get older, you see some movies in a completely different light every now and then. The likes of This Is 40 is relatable once you know people in their situation and Drinking Buddies falls into that late twenties category, when you’re still figuring out what you should ‘really’ be doing…in every sense. Writer and Director Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, You’Re Next) has created an impressive personal project that explores different relationships with a strong ensemble cast.

Drinking Buddies focuses around the relationship of Luke (Jake Johnson) and Kate (Olivia Wilde) who are co-workers at an awesome micro-brewery. At work they have a flirty relationship with days spent drinking or poking fun at each other and – in some ways – feel like they should »
