Thanks to The Internet We Now Know That Zac Efron and One Direction Are a Match Made in Heaven

8 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You remember Zac Efron. He's the guy in Neighbors, and you probably recognize him from those nudie photos on the set of the new Robert De Niro movie. Ring a bell? We thought so. But the actor wasn't always the Zac Efron we know today. He used to be a singing, dancing, musical theater machine. Today's youths are probably too young to remember, but once upon a time Zac's main job was to perform kicky routines in a basketball uniform. Perhaps this will jog your memory. You're also (probably) familiar with One Direction. You might know them from such hits as "What Makes You Beautiful" or "Story of My Life," or from such stories as When Zayn Quit the Band or When Louis Tomlinson Got »

Five "Must-See" Movies for August 2015

31 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, it's finally August, and while the summer movie season isn't completely over it might as well be. This article was a difficult one to put together, because there just isn't much to recommend this month. But you know what, that's okay, I think I managed to pull together five solid titles for the "must-see" section, and lucky for us the fall festival season is just around the corner, which means things are about to heat up exponentially on the prestige movie front just in time to compensate for things cooling down outside as the seasons change. (I should note here, it is currently 106 degrees fahrenheit here in the desert, and the thought of things cooling down is marvelous, but also very premature.) We are coming off what turned out to be a pretty solid month last month, in my opinion, as I settled back into my routine after a »

'Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising' Gets Chloe Moretz as the Female Lead

27 July 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you are doing a follow-up to the 2014 comedy hit Neighbors, of course you're going to want it to be a little different. The sequel is planning just that as it gets officially titled Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. And next year, after battling a couple of raunchy Frat Boys, Seth Rogen and his on-screen wife Rose Byrne are going to be going to war with the mother of all Sorority sisters, Chloe Moretz, who confirms herself as the female lead.

Seth Rogen spent the final half of 2014 in the news for his controversial comedy The Interview. A terrorist group demanded the film be canceled, taking responsibility for the massive Sony hack that saw quite a few embarrassing emails leaked. While the movie did decent numbers after it was officially released in a handful of independent theaters and on VOD, Seth Rogen found greater success early in the summer with Neighbors. »

Trailer For Zac Efron’s We Are Your Friends

27 July 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The directorial debut of Catfish: The T.V. Show’s Max Joseph, We Are Your Friends, at first glance, may look the usual cliched underdog story of one young guy trying to make it big, in this case in the electronic dance music scene that was a huge deal in the late 2000’s, and I myself will admit that I let out the exclamation “Great, more pretty people with pretty people problems” when the trailer started. But we really can’t overlook the Zac Efron factor here. He’s come a long way since High School Musical, and a few missteps withstanding, he’s proven a very competent actor that has more to offer than just bellowing out pop songs on the Disney Channel. On top of that, Joseph seems to be imbuing proceedings with a stylish flourish that should keep things interesting. Released: August 28th  »

Zac Efron lets more than just the beat drop in the newest trailer for his coming-of-age drama "We Are Your Friends."

The "High School Musical" heartthrob stars as aspiring DJ Cole Carter, who's facing a quarter-life crisis as he and his friends struggle to find purpose and inspiration amid the desolate suburbs of Los Angeles.

Cole's looking for a ticket out of his mind-numbing day job in the San Fernando Valley, where he's surrounded by "actors, waiters and wannabes" while spinning for free at local parties in his spare time.

Zac Efron is the DJ and fights to escape The Valley in new We Are Your Friends trailer

24 July 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Zac Efron stars as a DJ in the new trailer for the forthcoming Edm epic We Are Your Friends.

The clip offers more of an insight into the frustrations of the film's "waiters, actors and wannabes" who feel trapped in the suffocating normality of the San Fernando Valley, La.

We Are Your Friends also stars Wes Bentley as Efron's troubled mentor and Emily Ratajkowski as Bentley's girlfriend, the third party in their tense love triangle.

It was directed and co-written by Catfish's Max Joseph and Meaghan Oppenheimer.

Shot on location last year, the movie is slated for an August 28 release. »

New Trailer For Zac Efron’s We Are Your Friends Promises Big Sets And Bigger Parties

24 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros.’ all-new trailer for upcoming Edm-centric drama We Are Your Friends may not contain anything novel in the storytelling department, but we’d be damned if it doesn’t get our pulse pounding.

Featuring a cross-section of the opulent Hollywood nightlife, the footage centers around Zac Efron’s Cole, a would-be DJ who struggles to find a foothold in the hyper-competitive musical scene. As luck – or movie screenwriting – would have it, our protagonist soon finds a shot at the big time fall onto his lap when he crosses paths with Wes Bentley’s older maestro, James. Promising big sets and bigger parties, Efron’s prodigy quickly shoots up the ranks, but head-turning success comes with problems of its own.

Going off of the latest clip, Max Joseph’s We Are Your Friends reads a lot like Magic Mike, particularly with the dynamic between Efron’s lead and Bentley’s older, »
