Watch Julianne Moore Act for Tips on the Streets of New York

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Strange, but tourists and locals in the heart of Times Square would rather pose for pictures and tip vagrants dressed in greasy Spider-Man and Elmo costumes than saddle up alongside Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore. She recently joined the crowd of beggars in New York City, to see if she could collect tips in exchange for her acting abilities. Don't worry, she hasn't suddenly lost all her money. She's not homeless. She's actually doing a bit for Funny or Die's Billy on the Street.

Host Billy Eichner convinced the extremely game Julianne Moore to strap on her tip purse and approach total strangers in the street. For a quarter, she'll act out one of the scenes from her previous movies. Give the girl a dollar, and she'll cry on cue. It's all rather hilarious. And another win for Funny or Die's Billy on the Street, which had similar fun last month with Chris Pratt. »

The Lego Movie 2 Script Has Been Turned In

29 November 2015 2:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pretty much everyone adored The Lego Movie when it hit theaters early last year, and so it was admittedly a little disappointing when Warner Bros. revealed that directorial duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller had opted to pass on directing the follow-up. Still, the pair signed on to write The Lego Movie 2, and as a Thanksgiving gift to fans, Miller recently revealed that they’ve completed the first draft of the pic.

As per Miller’s verified Twitter account:

Just turned in the official first draft of Lego Movie 2. Hello, Thanksgiving.

Chris Miller (@chrizmillr) November 25, 2015

Rob Schrab, a veteran television helmer with episodes of Community, Parks and Recreation and The Mindy Project under his belt, has been set to direct the follow-up from a script by Miller and Lord. The pair, widely seen as the creative masterminds behind the franchise, will also remain involved in WB’s budding Lego-verse by »

12 Times Birthday Girl Anna Faris Was the Most Awesome Mom Ever to Son Jack

29 November 2015 5:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Happy birthday, Anna Faris! The gorgeous blond turns 39 today, and although her hilarious roles on Mom and in the Scary Movie flicks deserve plenty of recognition, we thought Faris has earned yet another special shout-out for her awesome parenting skills.  Alongside hubby Chris Pratt, Faris has been extremely busy raising their 3-year-old son Jack (who is totally a spitting image of his mama!). But unlike most first-time parents who opt to only share the glossiest moments of child-rearing, the Pratt-Faris fam keeps it real. From coloring on walls to potty training accidents, Faris knows exactly when to lay down the law and when to let her little man get wild. Check out the 12 »

10 Dumbest Fan Theories About Upcoming Movies

27 November 2015 12:12 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Fan theories can be a fun way for people to re-examine movies in a different light; they can look through it again for clues they didn’t pick up the first time and form their own thoughts about what they could mean. But at the end of the day that’s all fan theories are; just theories.

Some of the most convincing arguments manage to combine evidence from the movie itself, with a bit of their own detective work. However, the worst ones – like the idea that Chris Pratt’s hero from Jurassic World is really the annoying kid from the original movie – just randomly force an idea onto the film without anything to back it up. And as fan theories have become more popular, there has been a recent flood of the latter, with people keen to release their “mind-blowing” assumptions into the world with nothing but flimsy evidence to support them. »

Jennifer Lawrence to make feature directing debut

25 November 2015 11:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jennifer Lawrence has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that she will make her directorial debut in the near future with a film called Project Delirium.

The actress, who is currently appearing in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and then the upcoming Joy, spoke with EW of her want to direct, which apparently goes back to when she was 16.

“I’ve signed on to direct something called Project Delirium — it’s based on this article about mental warfare in the ’60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong.”

“It’s funny, I’ve wanted to direct since I was 16 and always thought I should start making steps towards that,” Lawrence says. “If I had tried to do it earlier, I wouldn’t have been ready. Now I actually feel ready.”

The article is actually up on the New Yorker, which you can read over here. Here’s a segment of it that sets the scene. »

Jennifer Lawrence Has Delightful Ways of Describing Chris Pratt

25 November 2015 12:12 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Despite the awkwardness of J.Law and Chris Pratt's sex scene, the two have become pretty chummy on the set of their new film Passengers. And as two of America's most likable actors (and maybe humans), how could they not? J.Law liked working with Pratt so much, she described him in a brand-new way, beyond the internet's favorite, "human golden retriever." Talking to EW: Pratt is a bag of gummie bears. He is cotton candy in human form. He's always in a good mood! He always has energy. Some other ways she probably described him: a basket of kittens with milk mustaches, a fleece blanket full of fleece blankets, 200 gumdrops wearing a trench coat trying to get into an R-rated movie, a baby with glasses, a duckling at a carnival, a piece of spaghetti between two dog mouths. Okay, J.Law, we get it, he sounds great! »

Behind-The-Scenes Image For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Features Zoe Saldana As Gamora

25 November 2015 11:47 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Gunn isn’t set to reassemble his ragtag crew until early 2016, when production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will set up shop in Atlanta, but already Zoe Saldana has shared a behind-the-scenes photo that reveals the transformation process required to turn her into the badass martial arts maestro, Gamora.

Steeped in lime-green goo, Saldana appears to be having a facial cast prepared for the make-up department to work their wonders, which will likely be used for VFX effects later down the line once the galactic sequel is incubating in post-production.

More News From The Web

Aside from Saldana, we know that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will welcome back Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Groot (Vin Diesel), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Dave Bautista as the irreverent Drax the Destroyer. Pom Klementieff is a newcomer to the star-studded cast, with rumors claiming she could step »

Here's the Ridiculously Cute Thing About Chris Pratt You Probably Never Noticed

25 November 2015 10:30 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

It's time to call attention to Chris Pratt's go-to move on the red carpet. Over the past couple years, he's made more than a few memorable red carpet appearances, and I've noticed a bit of a pattern. Time and time again (pun intended), Chris checks his watch while posing for pictures. This raises a few questions: Is he just really curious about the time? Hoping to show off his awesome watches? Not quite sure what to do with his hands? In any case, the whole thing is pret-ty cute, adding to the many reasons he's so lovable. Keep reading to see Chris's many time-checking moments on the red carpet, then look back at the times his charm was almost too much to handle this year. »

'Exclusive': What's The Scoop on Scoops?

25 November 2015 7:19 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Yesterday, a former colleague of ours attempted to break a major story. He allegedly discovered the identity of Peter Quill's (Chris Pratt) father in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2. For anyone who saw the first film, there was a mystery built in to the overall plot surrounding who this mystery figure could be. So it's a fairly intriguing question that the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and James Gunn, wants you to think about until the sequel comes out. The scooper, in this case, pulled out all the stops to make this Exclusive of his seem like a big deal: A snazzy video, fancy clothes, a history lesson, and used the story as part of his re-branding process ("I'm now the artist formerly known as...").

Good stuff

What happened next should surprise no one, least of all us here at Latino-Review. Like clockwork, Marvel and James Gunn shot his story down. »

24 November 2015 10:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




James Gunn shoots down Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 rumours, and has a word or two about spoiler culture...

Some rumours started doing the rounds yesterday regarding writer/director James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2. Said rumour centred around the character of Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt, and his parents.

It didn't take long for the rumours to be shot down, though, with James Gunn quickly nixing them. And in turn, he had a word or two about the spoiler culture surrounding modern movies.

"All right. From this moment on I’m going to stop commenting on any rumors surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, because, eventually, someone is going to come up with a spoiler that has some truth to it", he penned on his Facebook page.

"That said, the rumors surrounding Quill’s parentage at the present moment are completely false, and aren »

24 November 2015 6:15 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A spoiler rumor about a character has led to something of a debate online today about when the issue of plot spoilers go too far.

It began this morning when Heroic Hollywood reported that, according to four separate sources, they had discovered the identity of the father of Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) in the upcoming sequel to last year's Marvel sci-fi comic adaptation "Guardians of the Galaxy".

The plot point emerged at the end of the first film and is said to play a major part of the second, I won't reveal the information here but you can click the link to find out yourself. In the wake of that report though, director James Gunn has done a posting on his Facebook page not only flatly denying the rumor but expressing concern about the nature of this kind of 'spoiling the major twists' journalism:

What Jennifer Lawrence Likes About Working With Chris Pratt

24 November 2015 6:01 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jennifer Lawrence seems like an easy person to work with, considering her no nonsense work ethic and killer sense of humor. But who does Lawrence look up to in order to make a day on the set into a playground? Apparently, the newly dubbed human sugar rush known as Chris Pratt. Lawrence's sweet praise is literally just that, as the Hunger Games actress has been talking up one of her next projects, the sci-fi romance Passengers. We've heard her talking up her nerves about the more sexy moments she's had with her Marvel-ous co-star, but her recent remarks to EW have her commenting on the better parts of working with Pratt, as she said the following: Pratt is a bag of gummie bears. He is cotton candy in human form. He.s always in a good mood! He always has energy. The other day I got mad at him because »

James Gunn Denies 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Dad Spoiler

24 November 2015 2:55 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, a rumor surfaced regarding the identity of Star-Lord's father in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which Heroic Hollywood claimed came from four independent sources. According to this report, the Marvel Comics hero Mar-Vell, the original Captain Marvel, is Star-Lord's mysterious father, but the site also said that they expected Marvel to deny the story. Earlier today, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn shot down this rumor through a statement on his Facebook page, where he boldly stated that this is the last time he will comment on any rumors regarding his sequel. And it should be noted that the filmmaker is notorious for not lying in press interviews or on social media. So what he has to say is probably true.

"All right. From this moment on I'm going to stop commenting on any rumors surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, because, eventually, »
