The Blunt Reason Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Scaled Back On The Blood And Gore

4 hours ago

The new film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features a large number of sequences where hordes of the undead rush in to get a helping of brains, but it.s really not an overly gore-y film. Sure, characters get dismembered and torn apart, but there isn.t anything near as graphic as anything you.d see on any given episode of The Walking Dead. So why pull back on the disgusting bits? Essentially writer/director Burr Steers simply felt that it would actually make the movie more terrifying to let the audience just use their imaginations. I talked about this with the filmmaker one-on-one during a recent Pride and Prejudice and Zombies press day held in Los Angeles . the subject coming up when I asked about the film.s PG-13 rating and whether or not an R-rating had ever been pursued. Steers revealed that the financiers originally wanted a more »

The Weird Way Kurt Russell Affected Jennifer Jason Leigh During The Hateful Eight

8 hours ago

Making movies is an intense experience, and as the cast and crew spend long hours in tense, stressful situations for months at a time, this time together can have a lasting, lingering impact. Such is the case with Quentin Tarantino.s latest, the western chamber drama The Hateful Eight, but it turns out that Kurt Russell left a weird imprint on his costar Jennifer Jason Leigh. If you.ve seen The Hateful Eight you know that Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is up for an Oscar for her performance as outlaw Daisy Domergue, spends most of it handcuffed to Kurt Russell.s bounty hunter John "The Hangman" Ruth. Talking to Variety, the actress explained that, while in early rehearsals this was an awkward situation they had to deal with, after a few days, they "were dancing" as if they.d been connected like this for years. In fact, it even left »

Napoleon Dynamite Cut As An Inspirational Drama Is Bizarre And Funny, Watch It Now

9 hours ago

The magic of the internet means that you can now slice and edit famous movie footage into anything you desire. Want to know what R2-D2 was thinking throughout Star Wars? You got it. What about a compilation of various movie characters uttering, "I should have killed him when I had the chance?" That.s there too. And that.s just what we found today. Yet another YouTube video that we stumbled upon today is Napoleon Dynamite re-cut as an inspirational drama, and, rather oddly, it actually works.  I think I.d still rather see Jared Hess. original droll 2004 comedy, but I found myself being a tad inspired and impressed by the potential this dramatic version of Napoleon Dynamite. That abruptly came to an end when I remembered this was the same film that featured the quote, "Tina, you fat lard, come get some dinner." The dramatic incarnation of Napoleon »

The Extreme Lengths Two People Went To Get Out Of Paying For A Movie Ticket

10 hours ago

Movie tickets are expensive. When we were kids we used to think of going to the movies as a cheap date, but nowadays you need to mortgage the house if you want to take your family to the movies. And people are going to great lengths to avoid paying full price for a ticket. (Watching Grease Live made me fondly remember sneaking friends into the drive-in in my trunk when I was in high school.) Two internet pranksters may have the best method, however, as they disguised themselves as a single person so they only had to pay for one admission to the movie theater. You know in cartoons when a couple of kids pile onto each other.s shoulders and put on a trench coat to pretend to be a grown up? Well, this stunt from YouTube pranksters Bo Johnson and his Bff Matthew, is more or less the »

What Tj Miller Wants To Do In Deadpool 2

11 hours ago

Most superheroes have a friend or close acquaintance that they hang out with when not beating up bad guys. In Deadpool’s case, that’s Weasel, played by T.J. Miller in the Merc with the Mouth’s new movie. So far in the trailers, most of what we’ve seen Weasel do is make graphic observations about Wade Wilson’s disfigured face, so it remains to be seen how specifically he’ll be helping out his mercenary buddy. However, should Deadpool get a sequel, Miller would like to be in on the action more. While bringing up that Weasel eventually became the superhero known as The House in the comics, Miller told MTV International that he wants to use firearms in Deadpool 2. The actor said: All I want is, in the next movie, to be able to handle some guns. In this movie, »

How Goosebumps Opened A Wonderful World Of Horror And Scares For My Kids

11 hours ago

Something incredible, and marginally unexpected, happened when I took my sons to see Rob Letterman.s Goosebumps adaptation at a press screening. The following day, my youngest son, an 8-year-old second grader named Brendan, came home from school with a knapsack filled with R.L. Stine books. Brendan's just now starting to become a voracious reader. He.s ripping through Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. He.s reading chapter books about hamsters who serve as detectives, and he loves kid-friendly biopics about some of his favorite athletes. But the Goosebumps movie opened up a totally different door for him, and it doesn.t look like it.s closing any time soon.   Let me explain. Because they are inundated with movie culture on a daily basis in our house, they don.t obsess over films the way other kids might (and the way their geeky father certainly did at their »

Channing Tatum And Joseph Gordon-Levitt Are Making An R-Rated Musical, And We're All In

11 hours ago

Most of the time it’s impossible to get excited about a film based solely on a brief announcement or blurb. But the revelation today that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum are working on an R-rated musical comedy is enough to for any cinephile to start praying to the movie Gods and pleading for it to happen. News regarding this potential film is still very much at a minimum, but even what little we do know is enough to be excited about. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s believed that Universal has just picked up the musical, which already has Broadway stalwart Marc Platt, who worked on Wicked, on board as a producer. It’s also been teased that the adult-tinged musical comedy will see Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum playing two pilots that end up on a misadventure. All of which sounds like it »

Some characters get all of the coolest lines. James Bond gets to introduce himself by last name first, Darth Vader gets to (spoiler alert) proclaim that he is in fact Luke Skywalker’s father, and even Don Vito Corleone gets to explain how he will make someone an offer they won’t be able to refuse. These are lines that can only be uttered by those particular characters. On the flip side, there are other lines: lines that just ooze badass, but basically anybody can say them. One of those lines is, "I should have killed you when I had the chance." Check out the compilation video below to see just how many times that particular phrase has been spoken in movies over the years.     Across myriad genres and an insane amount of movies, the supercut showcases iconic film characters – hero and »

Hilarious Star Wars Video Guesses What R2-D2 Was Actually Saying

13 hours ago

R2-D2.s beeps and sounds have been the topic of much discussion amongst Star Wars fans. What did the droid mean with his utterances? Was he just passively joining in the conversation? Or was he responding like a petulant child? Well, one Star Wars fan has created a video guessing what R2-D2 was actually saying to Anakin Skywaler, Padme Amidala, Luke Skywalker, and C3PO. And it.s downright hilarious.  Kudos to YouTube stalwart My Insane Reality for creating such a terrific video, which suggests that R2-D2 has a much sharper wit, and quite a bit of rage, programmed into him than we first thought. There was obviously an awful lot of Star Wars footage for My Insane Reality to choose from while creating this video. And he did a sterling job picking bits that were ripe for comedy. Starting off with Hayden Christensen.s Anakin Skywalker »

Zack Snyder's Blunt Response To Man Of Steel Haters Who Complain About Superman

14 hours ago

Superman is not just one of the world’s most famous superheroes, but also a beloved pop culture figure, so there’s been a lot of criticism directed towards his most recent cinematic depiction. A good portion of fans believe that Man of Steel’s Superman acted out of character with how he’s usually written, with most of the criticism directed towards him killing Zod. Trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice haven’t eased concerns for skeptics, and many believe this Superman isn’t honoring the true spirit of the character. Well, in response to these complaints, director Zack Snyder recently said he doesn’t think that his Superman is the “wrong” version. During Snyder’s appearance on the Hall of Justice podcast, Snyder admitted that, while Man of Steel was meant to update Superman and while »

Which Movie Will Win Best Picture At The Oscars, According To Super Bowl Players

14 hours ago

In the movie world, we.re all very focused on our big event coming up, the Academy Awards. If you.re a sports fan, you also have a big event that.s even closer, the Super Bowl. So if you.re a movie website who has found yourself smack in the middle of Super Bowl media day for some reason, what do you do? You ask football players about movies, of course. Super Bowl media day is an event where players from each team are forced to sit in one place and answer endless questions from every news outlet imaginable. For the most part, this means answering the same question over and over again about how they.re going to handle the game. However, the Super Bowl is such a big deal that many non-sports media outlets also show up. Fandango.com, for example, was there asking the players what »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens About To Cross Two New Box Office Milestones

15 hours ago

While much of the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now died down, as it.s been out for nearly two months, the movie isn.t quite done breaking records yet. Today The Walt Disney Company announced that the movie has hit another movie milestone, and is expected to hit another before the weekend is out. The Force Awakens has now become the first movie to gross $900 million at the U.S. box office. The Mouse House also expects the film to crack the $2 billion global box office mark sometime on Saturday. The Force Awakens became the number one domestic movie quite a while ago when it bypassed Avatar.s $760 million total. Since then the film has just been piling on and increasing its lead, making it that much harder for any future film to bypass its success. Even future Star Wars movies will likely have difficulty competing. »

How Long Ryan Reynolds Wants To Play Deadpool

15 hours ago

What.s been plainly obvious from the hoard of Deadpool clips that have been released over the last few months is just how much fun Ryan Reynolds has playing the character. Even before the first footage for Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds seemed to have a glint in his eye whenever it was mentioned, which is because he got to make an authentic adaptation of the comic-book character. Clearly, Ryan Reynolds. love for Deadpool hasn.t diminished too, as the Canadian actor has now come out and insisted that he.d love to portray him for the rest of his career. Ryan Reynolds made this assertion while at the same time as dismissing another comic-book role he.d previously inhabited. Because when he was asked if he.d have any interest in reprising Hal Jordan in the already confirmed 2020 Green Lantern movie, Reynolds insisted that he.s now only concerned about Wade »

How Much Of The Justice League Will Be In Batman V Superman, According To Zack Snyder

15 hours ago

As only the second movie in the DC Extended Universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is giving the audiences a lot of heroes. In addition to the eponymous protagonists duking it out and then making up, Wonder Woman will also play a key role. Beyond the DC Trinity, there are also confirmed appearances from Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg, giving us most of the members of the soon-to-be-seen Justice League. However, when it comes to those latter three, don.t expect them to be on screen for long. Director Zack Snyder recently stopped by Blog Talk Radio.s Hall of Justice podcast to talk about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and when talking about Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg, he admitted that their roles will be minuscule compared to the movie.s A-level players. He explained:  As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very »

James Franco's Next Movie Will Be A Violent Stripper Road-Trip Movie, Sounds Incredible

15 hours ago

On paper, some of the greatest movies of all time don.t make any sense. The pitch for Taxi Driver basically just concerned a depressed taxi driver roaming around New York. It.s not incredibly appealing at first glance, but it turned out to be a modern masterpiece in practice. Then there are others movies, movies that sound so simultaneously insane and brilliant that we don.t have to see a single frame of the project to tell that it.s destined for greatness. James Franco.s upcoming project falls into the latter category.   A new report from THR indicates that the eccentric actor has been tapped to direct the upcoming film Zola. As the abbreviated title would suggest, the film will take inspiration from a Rolling Stone article titled "Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted," which followed the adventures of Aziah "Zola »
