Who loves velociraptors, pizza with anchovies, and Gwyneth Paltrow's 2010 movie Country Strong? Chris Pratt! The Jurassic World star took to Reddit to do an Ama for fans and divulged a lot about wife Anna Faris, former costar Nick Offerman, and his pop culture tastes. Turns out, his favorite movies are very likely some of your favorites, too! (Maybe not Country Strong, but you probably like The Goonies, right?) Take a look below to see his favorite movies, plus one TV show! Ok, it's Game of Thrones. »
Chris Pratt has already begun promoting his latest film, Jurassic World, and after all the thrilling trailers and those swoon-worthy GIFs, we can't really contain our excitement. To kick things off, Chris held a Reddit Ama on Friday, taking any and all burning questions from his biggest Internet fans. He fielded tons of questions in subjects ranging from his envy-inducing marriage to Anna Faris to his favorite pizza. Keep reading to see his best answers from the whole affair, and then keep the fun going with his knee-weakening hot pictures and all the things you may not have known about the star. On why he decided to do an Ama: "I heard about it on twitter and have always wanted to do one of these. I was thrilled to hear so many people were interested in me doing it. So I called Allison my publicist and said, 'Hey, I know »
Chris Pratt said a lot of things in his Reddit Ama today (April 24) -- like how Nick Offerman sends him photos of the poops he makes, and how he and wife Anna Faris are so much alike. But the most important detail is that Pratt -- star of forthcoming "Jurassic World," StarLord from "Guardians of the Galaxy," the loveable Andy from "Parks & Recreation -- is on the right team when it comes to "Game of Thrones." And that is Team Arya, who should win the seat at the Iron Throne by a landslide. 'Cause. "I am a huge Game of Thrones fan. I love Arya Stark the most," he replied to one users' question. Valar Dohaeris. »

Brace yourselves, Star-Lord is finally on Reddit! After finding out that some awesome Op duped millions of people on April Fools' Day into getting a picture of Chris Pratt's abs to the top of Reddit — with the lie that he said he'd do an Ama if they did — the actor happily obliged this afternoon (while apparently hung-over) and answered a few questions. (Having a summer blockbuster to promote was probably also a big factor.) Ever the charmer, Pratt gushed about his wife, clarified that Jurassic World is definitely not a reboot, and revealed his secret love for Country Strong. He even premiered a new clip from Jurassic World that has him desperately trying to outrun that new super-dino. Here are just a few of the gems he dropped: All the ways he'd describe Nick Offerman: "Nick is a best selling author. He is a very rare breed. He »

We saw a trailer earlier this month [watch it here], and now Fox Searchlight has released a poster for the Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award winner Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, which you can see here…
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl (Rj Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a ‘co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with »

The Host: Taraji P. Henson is that elusive creature known as the “black character actress.” Yes, many have thought them extinct but, as pointed out by the wonderful podcast Denzel Washington is the Greatest Actor of All Time Period, the working black actress is something to be cherished. Henson has been working steadily since the late 90s, but thanks to her role as Cookie on Empire, she has appeared to have, per her monologue, “made it.” Henson blends in well with the cast and commits to the loony worlds the show has her inhabit. The best sketches of the night, however, are the ones that don’t have her play straight woman or second banana. This is most prominent is the obligatory Empire sketch, where Cookie »

Not only is "Saturday Night Live's" recurring "Game Night" parody a great excuse for Kate McKinnon to do her excellent Jane Lynch impression, but for the rest of the cast to spoof some other well known celebrities. This version of "Game Night" included Vin Diesel (Taran Killam), Wynonna Judd (Aidy Bryant), Common (Jay Pharaoh), Nick Offerman (Beck Bennett), Marion Cotillard (Cecily Strong) and Wanda Sykes (host Taraji P. Henson). Pharoah's Common and Bryant's Judd are fantastic, but Henson steals the sketch as Sykes. It's so good we honestly can't wait to see what the actual Sykes thinks about it. Check out the skit in embedded video below. For more on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live" check out Ryan McGee's regular and quite popular recap. »

Their Tiff purchasing blitz wasn’t exactly over and done with. After Samba, 99 Homes and Eden, Broad Green Pictures have now added a touch of New Zealand in James Napier Robertson’s The Dark Horse. Yesterday, the distrib released their inaugural release slate with Mia Hansen-Løve’s latest being pushed out of the nest first — you can view the half dozen releases after the jump.
Gist: Starring Cliff Curtis, this is a true story based on the life of a charismatic, brilliant but little-known New Zealand Hero and chess champion – Genesis Potini, aka Gen.
Worth Noting: Robertson’s little known directorial debut is 2009′s I’m Not Harry Jenson.
Do We Care?: We’d normally not be inclined to see anything that groups feel-good, underdogs, chess and biopic elements, but Variety’s Peter Debruge appears to be a solid supporter calling this, “a stunning yet subtle Cliff Curtis performance, »

A trailer has arrived online for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s Sundance-winning Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, which is based on the novel of the same name by Jesse Andrews and stars Thomas Mann, Rj Cyler, Olivia Cooke, Jon Bernthal, Molly Shannon and Nick Offerman and Connie Britton. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Ramin Bahrani’s “99 Homes” will be released on Sept. 25. Broad Green bought the film last September following screenings and strong reviews at the Venice, Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals.
Garfield plays a construction worker evicted from his home by a real estate broker (played by Michael Shannon) and forced to move his mother (Laura Dern) and young son into a shabby motel. He then goes to work for the broker and must evict honest families from their homes.
“A Walk in the Woods,” starring Redford and Nick Nolte, will bow Sept. 2. It debuted at Sundance and is directed by Ken Kwapis; co-stars are Emma Thompson, Mary Steenburgen, Nick Offerman and Kristen Schaal.
Broad Green, operated by brothers Gabriel and Daniel Hammond as a production-distribution concern, has »

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl seems like this year's little indie that could - the hit that came out of Sundance and continues to delight audiences (refresher: last year, that was Whiplash, which went on to win an Oscar for J.K. Simmons). Watching the just-released trailer for the drama about two friends (Thomas Mann and Rj Cyler) and a leukemia-stricken girl (Bates Motel's Olivia Cooke), you'll think immediately of The Fault in Our Stars, but as even the preview gently lets you know, it's not. It's not a romance, but it is another exploration of young people dealing with the unfair, premature death sentence that is childhood cancer. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl has more, too - friendship, silly amateur movie-making, and Nick Offerman, Connie Britton, and Molly Shannon as a few of the parents. The movie, which is based on a novel, comes out »
Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for their highly anticipated new film, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl.

Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for the drama “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” three months ahead of its July 1 bow in the U.S.
“This is the story of my senior year in high school and how it destroyed my life,” Thomas Mann says in a voiceover at the start of the trailer.
Mann stars as a high school senior who’s secretly making bizarre films with his only friend, Earl, when his mother forces him to befriend a classmate with leukemia. R.J. Cyler, Olivia Cooke, Nick Offerman, Connie Britton and Molly Shannon co-star.
The drama, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, won the grand jury prize and the audience award for best U.S. dramatic feature at January’s Sundance Film Festival.

The smash hit of the Sundance Film Festival, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl gets its first trailer and it’s everything we hoped it would be, offering up some heartfelt moments, subtle humour, movie-making jokes, Nick Offerman, and cats.
The film, which took home both the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in January tells the tale of budding filmmaker Greg (Thomas Mann) and his friendship with Rachel (Olivia Cooke), a classmate dying of cancer. Together with his friend Earl (Rj Cyler), the pair of friends set out to make a film especially for Rachel.
The film was the subject of a bidding-war between studios with Fox Searchlight picking up the rights with many pegging it as the next Whiplash, the recent Academy Awards contender that swept Sundance in early 2014. And like Whiplash, the script for Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was a »

Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush have released the first Me and Earl and the Dying Girl trailer for director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s (American Horror Story) smash Sundance hit—it won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the festival in January. The film is an adaptation of the Jesse Andrews novel of the same name and revolves around a Criterion Collection-obsessed high school senior (Thomas Mann) who is talked into spending time with an acquaintance classmate (Olivia Cooke) who has recently been diagnosed with cancer. I caught the film at Sundance and, as saccharine and “Sundance-y” as that premise sounds, trust me when I say it’s an incredibly moving, funny, and thoughtful film. Oh, and you may be wiping away one or several tears as the credits roll. This trailer is actually a pretty spot-on representation of the movie as a whole, getting across the dryly humorous tone, »

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl took home the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival and Fox Searchlight promptly snatched it up and set a June 12 release date, offering a bit of Summer Movie Season counter-programming. Today the first official trailer has dropped, offering you a first look at the upcoming dramedy. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, the film stars Thomas Mann (Project X, Beautiful Creatures) as Greg, a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl (Rj Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a 'co-worker' than a best friend. But when Greg's mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) - a girl in his class who »

The hype surrounding Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s Me and Earl and the Dying Girl when it premiered at Sundance was enormous. The film went on to win the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at 2015’s festival, it sparked a huge bidding war to eventually be released by Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush, and the reviews were nothing short of incredible.
Back when Dylan Griffin reviewed the film for Sound on Sight, he said to believe the hype.
Just released today was the first trailer for the film, and immediately it’s clear how stylish, unusual and poignant the story is, a step up from the blockbuster that was the similar story The Fault in Our Stars. Here’s the official synopsis:
