James Franco Wrote a Very Franco-y Love Letter to McDonald’s

7 May 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In case you hadn't heard, McDonald's is having a bit of an identity crisis. It can't quite figure out how to sell fast food to millennials addicted to kale, quinoa, and SoulCycle. It's so desperate, it's even revived the Hamburglar as a sexy dude. And because Ronald McDonald is still too pervy-looking to be luring kids in with Happy Meals, the company has turned to a slightly less-pervy spokesperson to jumpstart business: James Franco! Dave Franco's older brother wrote an essay for the Washington Post about how much he loves McDonald's for giving him a job when he was a struggling nobody in Hollywood. ("I was definitely not too good to work at McDonald's," he explains, patting himself on the back.) He spends most of the essay gushing about what a great place McDonald's is to work, but Franco being Franco, he also sprinkles in a few colorful anecdotes »

Other Space Review – TV Yahoo – Paul Feig Hopes To Kill In Space

17 April 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Fans of Paul Feig have a new group of geeks to fall in love with, and the crew of the spaceship that makes up the set of Yahoo Screen’s Other Space are as odd and “freaky” as anything he’s come up with before.

Stewart Lipinski (Karan Soni) is mildly interested in pursuing a career in galaxy mapping, or whatever, and as we enter the show, he is taking his final test to become Captain of his own spaceship. He wins out over his sister, Karen (Bess Rous), largely because she is so… intense, that even the higher-ups of the space program are scared of her.

This is not exciting news for Stewart, who doesn’t want to spend a long space voyage dealing with her, especially when he has to convince her that he’s in charge.

The crew is basically a semi-typical gaggle of misfits, and Stewart »

Unfinished Business Starring Vince Vaughn Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Release Date and Details

14 April 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco aim for laughs in the Regency comedy Unfinished Business, coming to Digital HD on May 29 followed by a later June 16 release date on Blu-ray and DVD.

In the film, Vaughn stars as an entrepreneur to takes two colleagues along on a trip to Europe where an important business deal needs to be closed. In the spirit of the Vacation films before it, absolutely nothing goes right for Vaughn and his colleagues.

Unfinished Business had a tough go at the box office with only $13.6 million worldwide in ticket receipts. With an estimated $35 million budget, that equates to a flop no matter which way you slice and dice the numbers.

Publisher Fox Home Entertainment is giving Unfinished Business another shot on Blu-ray with over 30 minutes of additional and deleted scenes inserted back into the film. That alone should be enough of a draw to attract curious eyeballs. »

Zac Efron Goes Shirtless at the MTV Movie Awards Again

13 April 2015 10:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ok, so it wasn't quite as epic as his sexy shirtless appearance at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, but he still showed a little skin! Zac Efron took the stage in La on Sunday night with his Neighbors costar Dave Franco to accept the award for best duo, and because they were in character, Zac wore an open military jacket with nothing underneath. That's right, with a little help from Dave, we got a glimpse of Zac's tan abs and chest. Even though he's had plenty of hotter shirtless moments, we'll take it. »

Why Vagina Jokes Were the Real Winners of the MTV Movie Awards

13 April 2015 1:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

For as long as we can remember, society has been forced to endure an endless array of penis jokes. Penis jokes in movies, penis jokes on social media, and penis jokes in awards show. But last night, Amy Schumer decided to change that once and for all. Instead, vaginas ruled the evening and there was nary a penis joke to be found. (Unless you count that Zac Efron-Dave Franco crotch-grabbing incident, but that was merely a blip on the radar.)  Joke after joke was dedicated to lady nether regions, and perhaps even more shocking was the fact that they were actually not entirely un-funny. In fact it might even be time to declare penis jokes as so over; it's now vagina jokes' time in the »

Zac Efron and His Girlfriend Hang Backstage at the MTV Movie Awards

13 April 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Zac Efron had Sami Miro by his side to celebrate his wins at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night. Although the couple didn't walk the red carpet together, Sami posted a cute backstage snap on Instagram. She wore a short, long-sleeved black dress to the show, and Zac was all smiles with his arm around her in the photo. The pair's date night came just a few weeks after Sami opened up about their blossoming relationship in an interview with Elle, saying of his fame, "I've never spoken about us before, but, um, it's definitely different. I think that you have to take that [kind of attention] with a grain of salt, and put yourself in other people's positions. I think that's actually a really big part of it, putting yourself in their shoes, and trying to understand where they're coming from, and then it kinds of makes sense." Sunday's award show »

But be careful, Zac. Isn’t that how you broke your hand last time? On the “balls of steel” of those Franco brothers?

Hopefully this is a preview of an extra grab-assy Neighbors 2.

Zac Efron Takes Sami Miró to 2015 MTV Movie Awards—See the Pic!

13 April 2015 5:56 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The 2015 MTV Movie Awards gave us a chance to celebrate Zac Efron's pectoral perfection, but that's not all—the event served as date night for the often-shirtless Neighbors hunk and girlfriend Sami Miró! The model, 27, Instagrammed a cute picture of herself and her handsome beau, also 27, backstage at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre. Sami was undoubtedly proud of her man, who took home a Golden Popcorn for Best Shirtless Scene and another for Best Duo with Dave Franco! Zac and Sami were first rumored to be dating back in October 2014, but things got serious pretty quickly! The very next month, the couple adopted a puppy together, which as we all know, is a big commitment. Earlier this month, Sami »

MTV Movie Awards 2015: The 8 Most Memorable Moments

13 April 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 2015 MTV Movie Awards were a mixed bag, made up of moments both funny and unfunny, awkward and adorable. We gave high marks to host Amy Schumer, while some other supposed comedic bits left us scratching our heads.

Here, we've collected some of the best and worst happenings from the night. Whether they were a high or a low point in the proceedings, they're all memorable in their own way, and will have us talking for some time. (Or at least until next year's show.)

1. Amy Schumer brings the funny (and the sex).

The hostess kicked off the night with a pre-recorded clip parodying a bunch of the nominated films, including "Boyhood," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1," "Whiplash," and "The Fault in Our Stars." But despite declaring in her opening monologue, "Half of you don't know who I am, and the other half think I'm Meghan Trainor," Schumer »

Zac Efron and Dave Franco Re-Created Their Robert De Niro Scene From Neighbors

12 April 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It wouldn't be the MTV Movie Awards without a Zac Efron shirtless moment, and Efron didn't disappoint this year. When he and Neighbors costar Dave Franco accepted their award for best duo, they paid homage to their comedy by dressing up as two versions of Robert De Niro and stayed in character from the audience to the stage - including nipple twisting and groin grabbing. It's as good as it sounds. »
