MTV Movie Award Nominations: Best Fight, Best Kiss, Best Wtf Moment and More

4 March 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you thought the Oscars brought an end to another busy awards season, think again. The 2015 MTV Movie Award nominations have dropped, and while many of the familiar Oscar nominees are back for another go at snagging an award, they're joined by more popular movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and The Fault in Our Stars. In fact, Guardians of the Galaxy -- one of 2014's highest-grossing films -- nabbed seven nominations, tying The Fault in Our Stars and Neighbors for the most amount of nods. Of course, this being the MTV Movie Awards, we also have categories like Best Fight (we're rooting for Jonah Hill vs. Jillian Bell in 22 Jump Street), Best Kiss (Ansel Elgort & Shailene Woodley in The Fault in Our Stars is the most...

MTV Movie Awards announced; are more in touch than the Oscars

4 March 2015 2:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Are you still rubbed the wrong way by the winners of this year’s Oscars? Wish that if they have 10 nominations, they should realistically use them to nominate cool movies everyone has seen like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars, and if you’re not going to, why not just go back to 5?

That’s what the MTV Movie Awards are for, and surprisingly, they’ve made some choices that are making them look even more diverse and in touch with society than the Academy.

The movie of the year nominations are a healthy mix of blockbusters and critical darlings, with Oscar winner Birdman nowhere to be found (except for Best Female Performance by Emma Stone and Best Fight, between Michael Keaton and Edward Norton).

But even some of these fluffy, fun categories saw fit to nominate David Oyelowo, Chris Rock, Kevin Hart (okay, pretty sure »

'Fault in Our Stars,' 'Guardians,' 'Neighbors' lead 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations

4 March 2015 10:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nominations are in for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, and leading the way overall was "The Fault in Our Stars," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Neighbors" with seven mentions each. Little surprise, that, given the demographic, but at the same time, it's a relatively inspired (as far as it goes) mish-mash of consumer and prestige work across the board. "American Sniper," "Boyhood," "Selma" and "Whiplash" doubled up on their Best Picture fortunes from the Academy by landing in the Movie of the Year category. There they are joined by "Fault," "Gone Girl" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." Other Oscar nominees who found room include Bradley Cooper, Rosamund Pike (three nominations), J.K. Simmons, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon. "Whiplash," in particular, had a heartening showing. Miles Teller landed in the Best Male Performance category, and also picked up Best Wtf Moment and Best Musical Moment nods. And though it's no »

2015 MTV Movie Awards Nominees Topped by 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

4 March 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Only a couple hours after I ask if anyone expected films such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Transformers: Age of Extinction or Maleficent to receive Oscar nominations for Best Picture do we receive the 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations wherein two of those films actually do get nominations along with the likes of Gone Girl and The Fault in Our Stars as the two other "Movie of the Year" nominees that didn't make the Academy's cut. Oscar Best Picture winner Birdman was not nominated for Movie of the Year, but Emma Stone did receive a nomination as did Edward Norton and Michael Keaton for Best Fight. When it comes to overall tallies, it's Guardians of the Galaxy, Neighbors and The Fault in Our Stars leading all nominees with seven each. The »

Don’t roll up that red carpet just yet. Awards season still has one more ceremony to get through: The 2015 MTV Movie Awards hosted by Amy Schumer.

The Best Moments from Amy Schumer's Star-Studded 'Trainwreck'

The network’s annual ceremony typically honors a mix of award-bait films and fan favorites of the past year. And this year is no different with Oscar winners, Birdman and Whiplash, nominated alongside Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars. The latter two actually garnered seven nominations each. The two films tied with Neighbors for the most potential wins.

Other standouts include Gone Girl, which earned a lot of attention for Rosamund Pike’s turn as a scorned housewife Amy Elliott, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is getting love for Jennifer Lawrence’s much loved musical moment.

How 22 Jump Street Accidentally Started A Major Fire

2 March 2015 8:11 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

22 Jump Street was one crazy production. There was an octopus inking, a gun-happy car chase and Jillian Bell.s spotlight-stealing fight with Jonah Hill, to name a few memorable moments. When you have the dynamic duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller at the helm, these types of shenanigans are expected. What wasn.t, though, was that time the co-directors torched the end zone of a football field. But it.s cool, .cause it was an accident.  During a Reddit Ama with Lord and Miller, they were asked about the craziest thing that happened to them on set of 22 Jump Street. For Miller, there.s one all too clear answer. We accidentally burned down the end zone of a football stadium when a fireball effect got out of control. It was not funny at the time but now to me it is funny. The Jump Street crew filmed scenes at »

Leonardo DiCaprio Enters The Crowded Room

2 March 2015 7:36 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lifelong Oscar bridesmaid Leonardo DiCaprio is moving ahead with The Crowded Room, an extremely buzzy biopic in which he’ll play Billy Milligan, the first person to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a legal defense.

Milligan, who died in December of 2014, was charged with robbery and raping three women on the Ohio State University campus in the 1970s. While preparing his defense, Milligan was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder. He and his lawyers pleaded insanity, contending that two of Milligan’s alleged 24 personalites committed the crimes without his knowledge. He was the first to use this defense and be acquitted because of it.

Some of the man’s personalities included Adalana, a lesbian who admitted to the rapes; Ragen, a Yugoslavian communist who admitted to the robberies; and Arthur, a high-strung but proper Englishman. Perhaps the most fascinating part of Milligan’s story is that Hollywood has not yet »

James Franco Targets Father-Daughter Comedy 'Why Him?'

27 February 2015 5:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Franco is in talks to star in the 20th Century Fox comedy Why Him?, which will be produced by Shawn Levy's 21 Laps company and Ben Stiller's Red Hour Pictures. Both of the production companies are based on the 20th Century Fox lot.

The plot centers on a Midwestern father who takes his family on a trip to Stanford, to visit his daughter during the Christmas holiday. What started as an innocent family trip quickly spirals out of control, as the father gets into an unexpected competition with his daughter's new boyfriend, a young Internet billionaire. While Variety doesn't specify which role James Franco will play, it seems likely that he will portray the billionaire boyfriend.

John Hamburg (I Love You, Man, Along Came Polly) is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Nick Stoller (Neighbors, The Five-Year Engagement) and Ian Helfer (The Oranges). No production schedule was given at this time, »

’71’ Director Tapped to Helm Thriller for New Regency and Plan B

27 February 2015 2:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Regency has acquired an untitled thriller and set “71” helmer Yann Demange to direct the pic.

Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will produce through their Plan B banner along with Angus Lamont and Molly Smith. Demange’s “71” scribe Gregory Burke penned the script.

Plot details are unknown.

Demange has been one of the more sought-after directors in Hollywood following the critical acclaim of “71,” which stars “Unbroken” star Jack O’Connell in the story of a British soldier who is left behind in Belfast after a riot.

New Regency has increasingly found ways to team with high-profile directors like Steve McQueen on “12 Years a Slave” and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, who is coming off of his Oscar win for “Birdman,” and is directing “The Revenant,” staring Leonardo DiCaprio, for the company, which will open the film next Christmas.

New Regency and Plan B see Demange as a director with strong storytelling skills. »

'21 Jump Street' Director Talks 'Men in Black' Crossover

24 February 2015 3:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in December, emails leaked from the Sony hack revealed that Sony Pictures is contemplating a crossover between their 21 Jump Street and Men in Black franchises, which will presumably both come together in 23 Jump Street. 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street director Phil Lord revealed last month that their "crazy idea" for a crossover is still in play. Phil Lord's directing partner Chris Miller has now chimed in on the crossover, revealing that it's still very early in the development process, and that he is currently working on it with stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and 22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman.

"Well, it's very, very early on in this crazy fever pitch, but it's definitely a really interesting concept that makes you think. Talking about it, developing it with Jonah and Channing and Rodney and the studio, we can't just do the, 'Hey, it's the same thing again' schtick because we did that already. »

Chris Miller Says 'Jump Street' Meets 'Men In Black' Is "A Really Interesting Concept That Makes You Think"

24 February 2015 8:28 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the weirder things to come out of the Sony hack was a proposed “21 Jump Street” and “Men In Black” crossover. Jonah Hill apparently digs the idea, and last month, Phil Lord said it was still on the table. Chris Miller reiterates that point, saying that it's a way they can do a third movie without repeating themselves, and the idea seems to have latched on.  "...it’s very, very early on in this crazy fever pitch, but it’s definitely a really interesting concept that makes you think. Talking about it, developing it with Jonah and Channing and [co-writer] Rodney [Rothman] and the studio, we can’t just do the, 'Hey, it’s the same thing again' schtick because we did that already," Miller told ComingSoon. "If we’re going to do something, it’s got to be different but still have that same very specific 'Jump Street' flavor to it, »

Chris Miller didn't rule out merging the Jump Street franchise with the Men In Black universe for 23 Jump Street after it was leaked that Sony was considering the idea, but the question is will it actually happen? It just might be crazy enough of an idea to work, and during an interview with Coming Soon, Miller again says there could be a Jump Street and Men In Black crossover movie.

'Ghostbusters' Wants 'SNL' Star Cecily Strong for Key Role

18 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back before the four leads were announced for the new all-female Ghostbusters, it was being reported that both Workaholics star Jillian Bell and current Saturday Night Live cast member Cecily Strong were coming in to test for the reboot. Now, it's being reported that, while she didn't land a role as one of the main Ghostbusters, Cecily Strong is still wanted for a key character that was tailor-made for her specific comedy style.

Director Paul Feig and writer Katie Dippold have created this new character for Cecily Strong, which is the next biggest role outside of the core group of Ghostbusters aside from the villain. She is said to be an authority figure who secretly supports and helps fund the four heroines, though publicly she denounces their efforts and activities. She is quite vocally against them in the media, hoping to avoid panic amongst the citizens of New York »
