Keanu Reeves Wishes More People Wanted To Work With Keanu Reeves

5 hours ago

Throughout the entire decade of the 1990's, Keanu Reeves' star rose slowly but surely to prominence, with films like Point Break, Speed, and of course The Matrix. At the turn of the century, Reeves was a huge movie star with a lot of clout after his first experiment with the knowledge of kung fu. However, as the ensuing decade went by, a string of flops and modest hits outside of his obvious Matrix success didn't do any favors for his career. Which has left us with a world where Keanu Reeves is sad, because not as many studios want to work with Keanu Reeves. IndieWire ran a rather revealing interview with Keanu Reeves, who is currently promoting his new movie John Wick. While he's been excited to direct with Man Of Tai Chi, as well as kicking unholy amounts of ass in his latest outing, he's undoubtedly fallen into »

This Week In Home Entertainment: Sex Tape, Snowpiercer And More

7 hours ago

Sex Tape Blu-ray Director Jake Kasdan follows up his raunchy but lesson-building movie Bad Teacher with another flick about adults behaving badly. In Sex Tape, a couple decides to spice up their love life by putting together the titular tape; however, things don.t go quite as planned. Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) don't really understand the cloud, leading to the tape getting uploaded for their family and friends to see. Ridiculous shenanigans ensue. Like Bad Teacher, Sex Tape focuses a lot on the rapport between Diaz and Segel, who are both comedy pros. Despite this, they don't really sell well as a married couple with two adorable, likable children, although the addition of kids in the movie allows for some of the same sort of cheeky kid-based jokes that Adam Sandler also likes to employ in his films. Segel and Diaz have great rapport, but they are »

Want Bad Santa 2? We Have Good News

7 hours ago

Prepare for the return of Willie T. Stokes! Since its release back in 2003, the holiday comedy Bad Santa has developed a sizable cult audience, and, as a result, it looks like a follow up is actually going to happen. Billy Bob Thornton himself has teased that Bad Santa 2 is currently in the early stages of development. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thornton was recently part of a special Q&A at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television, and revealed that there are indeed plans to make a follow up to the Terry Zwigoff-directed Christmas dark comedy. The actor said that he thoroughly enjoyed crawling into Willie's skin because it allowed him to display his talents in a broad comedy that went out of its way to play for big, crude laughs. When the topic turned to a possible Bad Santa 2, Thornton assured the audience that it »

Wait, John Carter 2 Might Actually Happen?

7 hours ago

Nowadays, the name "John Carter" is synonymous with "flop" in Hollywood. Behind-the-scenes problems led to a ballooned budget of $250 million, and when it was released in March 2012 it only managed to make $73 million at the domestic box office. As the movie moved around the globe, an international take of $211 million certainly helped, but the legend of the disappointing blockbuster was written by that point, and the film found itself at the center of lots of jokes and ridicule. But that particular failure doesn't mean that the titular hero's time on the big screen is finished. PR Web has published a press release announcing not only that the rights to John Carter of Mars have reverted back from Disney to the estate of author Edgar Rice Burroughs, but that there are future plans to bring the character back to the big screen. Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. is currently looking for another »

9 hours ago

Pee wee-Herman is returning to the big-screen, according to Paul Reubens. And while the actor hasn't given too much away regarding a third cinematic adventure for the beloved children.s character, he has teased that an announcement regarding the feature is coming "imminently." Paul Reubens made the cataclysmic statement during an interview with Rolling Stone, which was actually orchestrated to celebrate the upcoming release of the re-mastered Blu-ray box-set of Pee-wee Playhouse. During the end of his chat, the interviewer gently probed, "One last question: There were some rumors going around that you were working on another Pee-wee movie. Any updates on that?" Reubens then delivered the hugely exciting news that the speculation was indeed correct by declaring, "There.s going to be a big announcement any minute now." Unfortunately that didn.t mean that Reubens took 60 seconds to compose himself before delivering further details. Instead, he revealed that the »

Cyborg Is Definitely In Batman v Superman, Here Are The Details

9 hours ago

Given its title and release date about one year before Justice League is set to come out, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is expected to feature many more heroes than just those mentioned in the title (and no, I'm not talking about Wonder Woman). We've been hearing rumors for months about appearances from characters like The Flash and Aquaman, but today it's one of the younger members of the future Justice League who has spoken up and admitted that he will be entering in DC Cinematic Universe in Zack Snyder's upcoming film. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, actor Ray Fisher has not only personally confirmed his role as Victor 'Vic" Stone a.k.a. Cyborg in the Dccu, but also that we will be getting our first look at the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Opening up about the part for the first time since landing »

Why This Halloween Might Be A Disaster For Hollywood

10 hours ago

Despite the fact that some truly stellar movies have been coming out since January, the 2014 box office is severely struggling - and the next big holiday on the calendar doesn't look like it will be helping things in the slightest. In fact, analysts are saying that this Halloween may be downright horrific for the movie industry. Variety is saying that the movie industry may want to start bracing itself for a rough Halloween, and a big part of that is simply because October 31st happens to fall on a Friday this year - one of the most popular days of the week for theater-going. While there certainly will be some people who wish to spend the night in a darkened theater, most will presumably be seeking entertainment in many other capacities, be it trick 'r treating or costume parties. Weirdly, the trade notes that studios have actually been planning ahead »

How Matthew McConaughey Feels About All Those Romantic Comedies In Retrospect

11 hours ago

There was a time when Matthew McConaughey was only known for his work in the romantic comedy genre. Throughout the 00.s he did little else than be perpetually shirtless and kiss his attractive co-stars. Obviously that.s not a bad way to live, and even though these films were regularly ripped apart by critics, McConaughey continued to churn them out. Now that he.s widely regarded as one of the most arresting screen presences of modern Hollywood, you might expect him to be embarrassed of his work during those years. But that couldn.t be further from the truth. In fact he.s still incredibly proud of his performances. Matthew McConaughey stood by the likes of The Wedding Planner, Failure To Launch and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days during a chat with GQ. His interviewer was clearly trying to get him to disparage the pieces but he »

A Major Fast & Furious Player Will Probably Direct A DC Superhero Movie

11 hours ago

After a few years of making middling movies like Dead Silence and Death Sentence, James Wan has begun to emerge as one of the big name directors in Hollywood. Both The Conjuring and Insidious Chapter 2 were incredibly big hits last year (both made on very tiny budgets), and next year we will get to see his first step into blockbuster filmmaking with the release of Fast & Furious 7. Given his career trajectory, it was only a matter of time before the comic book movie genre came calling, and it seems that the folks at Warner Bros., New Line and DC Comics are striking first. Buried in an article about James Wan signing on to direct The Conuring 2 and inking a producing deal with Warner Bros., Deadline has revealed that the major studio is very much interested in the idea of having the filmmaker take the helm of one of their upcoming »

Why The MPAA Sucks At Its Job, According To Science

12 hours ago

The Motion Picture Association of America has never been the most popular corporation. Not only has it provoked the ire of some of the greatest directors to ever sit behind a camera, but audiences often find themselves bemused by its choices too. And now, according to a brand-new scientific report, it turns out that there actually isn.t much point to their efforts anyway. The University Of Pennsylvania.s Annenberg Public Policy Center conducted extensive research that has proven parents become more and more desensitized to the sex and violence that they see in movies. This includes people who work for the MPAA. It.s now been speculated that employees of the MPAA have become so numbed because of their profession that films that were rated R a few decades ago are now less violent than today.s PG-13s. The published study states, "People who rate movies for the »

2001: A Space Odyssey.s Brand New Official Trailer Is Perfect

12 hours ago

As advanced as home theater technology has gotten in the past few years, some movies still truly need the big screen experience to be fully appreciated, and 2001: A Space Odyssey is certainly one of these films. A result of this special quality is that theater owners love to bring the Stanley Kubrick feature in for special screenings, and do so often. But very few celebrate re-releases by putting together trailers on the level of the epic one that was just cut and posted by the British Film Institute: After all of these years, 2001: A Space Odyssey still remains as enigmatic narrativly as it was back when it was first released, but watching this trailer is a reminder of just how utterly gorgeous the film is, and the genius that rests in its direction and cinematography. It's honestly remains a challenge to watch Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) run »

The Touching Reason Elsa Was Made A Hero In Frozen

14 hours ago

Let's think back to a time before Frozen had become a sensation across every form of pop culture, from film, to music, to television and theater. Before the film opened, there were grumblings about how far Disney's creative team had strayed from the inspiration for their latest Disney princess feature. In Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," the titular frosty royal was a villain. So how did Frozen's Queen Elsa turn out to be a hero? It's actually a touching story. Wired recently sat down with some of Walt Disney Animation Studio's biggest players to discuss the studio's upcoming animated adventure Big Hero 6, but though Frozen is finally out of theaters, it's never far from our collective thoughts. So along with details on the candy-colored superhero cartoon, the magazine got some interesting behind-the-scenes details about how Elsa's character evolved. In early versions of the film, Elsa was a flat-out villain, »

5 Heroes DC Could Choose To Headline The Green Lantern Reboot

14 hours ago

Last week, Warner Bros. announced their slate of DC Comics films from 2016 until 2020. Kicking off with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, this lineup of films (which could be called DC.s Phase 1) will conclude with a reboot of one of DC.s most famous characters: Green Lantern. Although 2011 gave us a Green Lantern movie, it was a critical and commercial failure, and for years it was ambiguous whether there would be a follow-up. However, with the establishment of the DC Cinematic Universe, Warner Bros. has decided to give Green Lantern another shot at the big screen... even if it is six years away. However, with the franchise getting a new start, there.s one lingering question: who will be the Dccu.s Green Lantern? Luckily, there are plenty of characters to choose from. As a primer for the uninitiated, the DC Universe is protected by the Green Lantern Corps, »

16 hours ago

The legacy of the Marvel Studios adaptation that is Ant-Man has been one of mixed blessings, particularly after Edgar Wright left the project earlier this year. After a search of a couple weeks worth of contenders, Peyton Reed was settled on as the director and Adam McKay was brought in to re-work Wright's script into something more in line with Marvel Studios' vision of the project. Thanks to a recent interview, we have some word on just what's changed and just what's stayed the same. Collider spoke with McKay at a junket for his current project, We The Economy, and among the wealth of information he gave to their reporter was some notes on how he got involved with Ant-Man in the first place, as well as what the fate of Edgar Wright's original draft was.

This Beloved Lord Of The Rings Actor Will Be In The Hobbit 3

17 hours ago

When The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey started to unfurl on screens across the world in 2012, it greeted fans with the familiar faces of Ian Holm and Elijah Wood as Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. After an entire trilogy with the Baggins family, opening the new chapter of the story is pretty much the best way you can introduce the continuation of the Lord Of The Rings saga's prequel to fans not so familiar with the books. Much like Billy Boyd's involvement with The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies is the perfect way to bookend the series. Hypable reported that Boyd, known as Pippin in the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, would be singing the latest and final end credit track in the series, entitled "The Last Goodbye." To add some extra coincidental humor to the mix is the fact that the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle Of »

Noah Was Probably Hoping To Earn More Awards Than This

17 hours ago

When Darren Aronofsky decided to use the Bible as the source of inspiration for his follow-up to the Academy Award-winning Black Swan, many suspected Noah would be the kind of biblical epic that could well sweep the Oscars in 2015. But reviews for Noah have been mixed. And when it comes to the brewing Oscar talk, the title's largely been left out. Still, there is one award that Noah's been given that few may have predicted. The Humane Society of the United States recently announced that Darren Aronofsky will be honored with their inaugural Humane Filmmaker award at the organization's "To the Rescue! New York 2014" benefit gala on Friday, November 21 at Cipriani in New York City. How did Aronofsky get singled out for this history-making award? By choosing to fill Noah's ark with CGI animals in lieu of live ones. The Human Society has decided that this showed leadership in »
