Frank Underwood Meets The King In First Image For Elvis & Nixon

5 February 2015 8:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kevin Spacey may have already been acquainted with the interior of the Oval office following his ongoing, power-mongering stint as the conniving Frank Underwood in House of Cards, but the actor is set to revisit the White House sooner rather than later for Liza Johnson’s Elvis & Nixon, and today, The Hollywood Reporter has released the first official image from the set.

Orbiting around the two titular characters, the drama will take place during the pair’s infamous coming together on December 21, 1970, a time in which The King put himself forward as a self-proclaimed secret agent — his aura at the time knew no bounds, apparently. Starring opposite Spacey is Take Shelter star Michael Shannon as Mr. Presley, and it’s understood that the two were brought in to replace Eric Bana and Danny Houston during the early stages of development.

Spacey and Shannon will be joined by Colin Hanks, Alex Pettyfer, »

Watch: Channing Tatum Shows Off His Moves in ‘Magic Mike Xxl’ Teaser Trailer

4 February 2015 8:09 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Magic Mike Xxl” certainly knows its audience. Warner Bros. has released a steamy teaser trailer for the stripper sequel five months before its July 1 opening, with the tagline, “This summer, get back to the grind.”

Most of the 90-second trailer focuses on Channing Tatum’s titular character as he demonstrates his moves to Ginuwine’s “Pony.” Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer are not in the sequel, but Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias are all reprising their roles.

The original became a sleeper hit in 2012, grossing more than $167 million worldwide on a production budget of just $7 million. Steven Soderbergh directed the first film while his producer Greg Jacobs directed the sequel from a script co-written by Tatum and Reid Carolin.

The story involves a road trip from Tampa to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention. Amber Heard, Michael Strahan, Donald Glover, Jada Pinkett Smith, Elizabeth Banks »

Watch: Channing Tatum & Bros. Grind Their Bods Again In The First Trailer For ‘Magic Mike Xxl’

4 February 2015 7:20 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The gang is back in “Magic Mike Xxl,” this time in a road trip film. Ok, most of the gang is back. Matthew McConaughey’s Dallas and Alex Pettyfer’s The Kid characters are awol, but returning to the fold are Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias. Steven Soderbergh has vacated the director’s chair too, but don’t worry, he’s acted as director of photography, camera man and editor (we heard this one basically locked picture already). Instead, Soderbergh’s right-hand man and longtime producer/first A.D. Greg Jacobs is at the helm (he directed “Criminal” and “Wind Chill”). From all accounts, while still written by Reid Carolin and Tatum, “Magic Mike Xxl” sounds like much more of a good time buddies comedy. This time the strippers take a road trip from Tampa to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention. »

The Interview And A Million Ways To Die In The West Head Up The Razzies Worst Film Nominees

5 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five days into the new year and the movie awards season is in full swing. A chance to celebrate all of the cinematic gold bestowed upon us by filmmakers over the last 365 days, the majority of awards bodies veer towards the positive. The good, the great and the outstanding movie achievements. Of course, you can’t have yin without yang, and that customary glint of deviousness amidst the showers of compliments will soon be upon us, in the shape of the The Annual Golden Raspberry Awards.

Known informally as The Razzies, the achievements are dished out based on how bad the category nominees performed, and this year’s nominees have now been announced. Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West beat out its closest competitors for the esteemed honour of most nominations with a whopping eight altogether. Recent limelight comedy, The Interview, also snagged four nominations across three categories. »

‘The Interview,’ ‘Sex Tape,’ Make Razzies Shortlist

4 January 2015 12:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the film business gears up to honor the best films of the year at the Academy Awards, the worst are getting recognized, too.

The shortlist for the Razzies, which names the worst films of the year, has been obtained by awards site Gold Derby, listing some of the biggest grossers of the year, like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” and others that didn’t do so well. The shortlist isn’t a concrete list of the nominations — rather, it’s a preview of the contenders for the dubious honor.

Seth McFarlene’s “A Million Ways to Die” looks like it could be the frontrunner for the awards, popping up eight times. “Sex Tape,” which garnered mostly negative reviews, is listed six times. Seth Rogen and James Franco are both on the list for worst actor for “The Interview,” as well as worst onscreen duo.

14 Worst Movies of 2014

1 January 2015 8:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most Hollywood studios have gotten smart about their film budgets, lowering them quite a bit over the past year. Which means we saw fewer box office bombs in 2014. Almost all of the big releases made at least a little bit of their money back, except maybe Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. It only earned $18.6 million worldwide against it's $70 million budget. Winter's Tale and Vampire Academy were also big money losers over the past twelve months, but seeming disasters like Transcendence and I, Frankenstein actually managed to recoup their costs overseas. That doesn't mean these were good movies by any means. And some of the biggest blockbusters of the year shouldn't be considered masterpieces of cinema by any stretch of the imagination. In 2014, we couldn't really judge a movie by its earnings. But we could judge them by their critical and fan responses. Which is where Rotten Tomatoes comes in handy. »
