Seth Rogen's throwing a 'Sausage Party,' and guess who's writing the theme song

23 November 2015 5:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Seth Rogen was at our offices last week to discuss his new film 'The Night Before," we touched on a number of subjects, and the conversation turned at one point to "Sausage Party," an animated film directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. For those who haven't heard of the film, it's understandable. It's not due in theaters until August of 2016, but it's been in production for a while now. The film tells the story of Barry, a hot dog voiced by Michael Cera, who begins to suspect that the entire ideological afterlife that has been explained to him for his entire existence is, in fact, a lie. What that lie is and how his adventure peels back the layers of reality is something you'll have to see for yourself, but it's a blisteringly filthy script, and very, very funny. It's got a great voice cast, including Rogen, »

[Review] The Night Before

18 November 2015 2:58 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The past few years have seen nearly everyone within the Judd Apatow orbit look inward, writing stories of begrudging but graceful maturity, building that rely on the metatexutal aspects of their tight-knit clique. 2013’s This Is the End was a thrilling apotheosis with its deconstruction of the cult of celebrity through stars like James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Jonah Hill, playing characters who are real-life celebrities, but hyper-personified through their careers.

Last year’s The Interview was the next step, bringing Franco and Rogen into a context where they faced something larger than even their own star power. But even with the specter of one of the greatest boogeyman toward the western world, South Korea, and the ensuing controversy, it was still swallowed whole by predictability and Franco’s staid shtick.

The Night Before isn’t mired in the same discussions of perception/identity of those aforementioned movies, but it »

Ralph Fiennes Is Alfred in 'Lego Batman'

3 November 2015 12:24 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I don't know about you guys but I am actually pretty excited for the upcoming lego themed movie, "Lego Batman." The movie's also dressed to the 9's with a stellar cast that could choke a horse with shear talent alone. And now, there is a new addition joining the party in the form of english actor Ralph Fiennes, who will be playing Bruce Wayne's closest confidant Alfred Pennyworth. So far the Lego Batman film is set to be the first cinematic feature-length film to introduce the bat family in bulk, just before they make their live action debut in the assumed to be Ben Affleck directed "Batman" solo film which won't come out for a few more years.

Now I'd think it'd be safe to assume that getting such a high-caliber actor and having him play an important role in a film would mean we'd see a bunch of Alfred once the movie comes out, »

'Lego Batman Movie' Lands Ralph Fiennes as Alfred

3 November 2015 10:10 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year's blockbuster The Lego Movie featured Will Arnett lending his voice to Batman, and while fans saw a number of other DC Comics superheroes like Superman (Channing Tatum), Green Lantern (Jonah Hill) and Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders), the jam-packed cast of characters didn't include any other iconic figures from Batman lore. Warner Bros.' upcoming spinoff The Lego Batman Movie is about to change all that, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Ralph Fiennes has come aboard to voice Bruce Wayne's faithful butler Alfred Pennyworth. The role marks the Oscar winning actor's first voice over role since 2005's Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Ralph Fiennes joins a growing voice cast that includes Michael Cera as Robin, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker and Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, alongside Will Arnett. No plot details have been released yet, but producer Chris Miller, who co-directed The Lego Movie with Phil Lord, »

17 sequels that are better than the original, from The Dark Knight to Toy Story 2 and beyond

1 November 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Movie sequels are meant to follow the law of diminishing returns, but the following fought that law - and won.

Of course, this is all a matter of opinion, and if you personally think Babe: Pig in the City is better than the original - hint: it's not - do let us know in the comment box below.

1. The Dark Knight (2008)

The best of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy? Undoubtedly. Quite why it's so great is hard to put a finger on, because there are so many reasons, from Heath Ledger's stunning turn as The Joker to that truck flip.

Endlessly rewatchable, this is a dark and complex crime film that brings the very best out of the superhero genre. Just don't talk about The Dark Knight Rises, okay?

2. Toy Story 2 (1999)

Toy Story 2 is a miracle. Originally envisioned as a straight-to-video cheapie, John Lasseter and the rest »

Watch: 3 Clips & New Photos From Halloween Horror 'Freak Of Nature'

30 October 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Maybe Jonah Hill dodged a bullet? The actor, circa 2011, was all set to make his directorial debut with a monster mash-up film called “The Kitchen Sink,” which featured vampires, monsters, aliens, and more. Fast forward to 2015 and two weeks before the movie was scheduled to come out, it had a new title, “Freaks Of Nature,” a new trailer, and a kind of “surprise, this movie actually exists” announcement.

Unexpected Contenders for This Year’s Oscars

30 October 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Every Oscar season there is a new name or unexpected performer whose work thrusts them into the awards’ season spotlight. Though it is generally only one or two names that audiences must get accustomed to saying in the same breath as Oscar, this year there are a slew of potential actors and actresses that, this time last year, could not have been farther from the Oscar conversation.

Not since Annie Hall‘s best picture win in 1978 has a comedy won the night’s big award, and, possibly as a result, comedic actors are generally not associated with Oscar night. However, this year may see a number of big name comedy stars earning nominations from the Academy.

Seth Rogen, who has proven himself to be a bankable comedy star at the box office over the past decade, has not often had his name bandied about in the Oscar conversation. »

James Franco set to direct and star in film about 'worst movie ever' The Room

29 October 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor has enlisted Seth Rogen to work with him on The Disaster Artist about the making of the 2003 cult flop regarded as worst film of all time

James Franco has lined up his next directorial outing: a film about the making of the 2003 cult classic The Room. Directed by Tommy Wiseau, The Room is widely considered one of the worst movies of all time. Upon its initial release, it played in a handful of Los Angeles cinemas to mostly empty houses, but after time it resurfaced at the city’s popular arthouse theater, Laemmle 5, as a midnight favorite. Jonah Hill and Paul Rudd are among its celebrity fans.

Trailer Trashin’: Visit Old-Time Hollywood in the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!

19 October 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. This past week saw the release of Guillermo del Toro’s new horror film Crimson Peak, which I’m very excited about. In the meantime, I’ve got another trailer for a 2016 movie to show you. Now let’s take a look at the first trailer for Hail, Caesar!, the next film from the Coen Brothers.

Premise: Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) is a Hollywood “fixer” helping the production of the upcoming epic film Hail, Caesar! starring Baird Whitlock (George Clooney). But when Whitlock is kidnapped by a group calling themselves “The Future,” Mannix is the one in charge of collecting the $100,000 ransom and rescuing him.

My take: There’s something I just love about the golden age of Hollywood, that period from the late 1920s through the late 1950s. And I love movies about that era of filmmaking. And that’s just what we’re getting with Hail, »

Mib Sans J: Alien Concept?

17 October 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

According to the IMDb, another Men in Black film is already in the works, with Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street) wielding the pen. The catch? Will Smith has said he’s finished with the franchise. The star, whose turn as NYPD-maverick-turned-galactic-peacekeeper Agent J helped cement his status as the King of July Fourth, feels that three Mib movies is enough for him. And it’s difficult to argue with that — trilogies have a poetic symmetry that’s lacking in series like, say, the Rocky films. That’s particularly true here, since 2012’s Men in Black 3 did such a deft job providing full-circle closure to the relationship between J and his mentor, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones).

Yet the producers are going ahead with a four-peat. So, if Smith doesn’t play J, who does? Or does J have to show up at all?

There have been some rumors floating around both possibilities. »

'Freaks of Nature' Red Band Trailer: Zombies Vs Vampires Vs Aliens

17 October 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Freaks of Nature welcomes you to Dillford, where three days ago, everything was peaceful and business as usual. The vampires were at the top of the social order. The zombies were at the bottom. And the humans were getting along in the middle. Not anymore!&#160

This delicate balance was ripped apart when the alien apocalypse arrived in Dillford and put an end to all the harmony. Now it's humans vs. vampires vs. zombies in all-out, blood-sucking, brain-eating, vamp-staking mortal combat. And all of them are on the run from the evil extraterrestrials. It is up to three teenagers, one human, one vampire, and one zombie, to team up, figure out how to get rid of the interplanetary visitors, and try to restore order to this "normal" little town.

Freaks of Nature is coming to theaters in time for Halloween, and it is certainly a mix bag of treats. We have »

‘Freaks of Nature’ Red-Band Trailer: Vampires vs. Zombies vs. Aliens, and humans in between

16 October 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A few years ago Oren Uziel wrote a script called The Kitchen Sink, a horror-sci-fi-comedy mashup that combined vampires, zombies, and aliens and had Jonah Hill attached to direct until he landed himself an Academy Award nomination and exited the project as fast as he could. Sony then tapped Robbie Pickering (Natural Selection) to direct the picture instead, and now years later, it’s finally set for a release under a new title. Fans of horror comedy might be interested in Freaks of Nature, a bizarre mishmash of Monster Squad and Zombieland, about a small American town that gets caught in a war between the undead.

Starring Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis, Ed Westwick, Vanessa Hudgens, Keegan-Michael Key, Joan Cusack, Bob Odenkirk, Denis Leary, and Cerina Vincent, Freaks of Nature opens just in time for Halloween on October 30th. Watch the trailer below.
