James Franco Holds A Grudge Against Seth Rogen For Killing Him In This Is The End

1 hour ago

While most of the characters in Rogen and Goldberg.s This Is The End find a way to get raptured and taken off to heaven, that was not the fate that wound up being orchestrated for James Franco. Instead, a plan to "sacrifice" himself in the third act of the movie goes horribly awry, and he winds up getting eaten by Danny McBride and his team of cannibals. It.s hysterical to see unfold watching the film, but apparently James Franco has carried a bit of a chip on his shoulder about it ever since he did the movie. Last December . approximately six months after the release of This Is The End - I had the opportunity to travel to the set of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.s new film, The Interview, and while sitting down to interview Franco, Rogen and Goldberg it was revealed that the former has »

The Justice League Is Coming To 2015 in This Form

2 hours ago

While the Zack Snyder Justice League film isn't due in theaters until at least 2017, that doesn't mean Warner Bros isn't making the most of its legacy stable of superheroes. In fact, DC Comics is head and shoulders above anything Marvel is doing in terms of its direct to DVD films, particularly when it comes to the Justice League. With the New 52 off and running, it's time for one of DC's heroes to finally take center stage... in animated form! NewsARama has coverage on the upcoming animated film, Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis, which takes its name from the third collected volume of the New 52 run of Justice League comics. The funny thing about the plot is it sounds oddly similar to the rumored reason Aquaman would find himself coming into the limelight in the new Snyder continuity. Except replace the battle against Apokolips with the battle against General Zod. »

The Big Budget Hollywood Film Isis Has Started Using As Propaganda

3 hours ago

Darren Aronofsky.s Noah was one of 2014.s most polarizing movies. Some embraced it as an art-house, biblical blockbuster that managed to tell one of the most famous stories ever told in a fresh and surprising manner. Others were simply offended that it ever got made. So much so in fact that Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and Indonesia all banned it from being released because it violated Islamic law by depicting a prophet. But obviously Isis saw something they liked in the film, because they.re using images from it in their newsletter. Aronofksy made this revelation himself during a chat at New York City.s New Museum on Tuesday night, where he was being honored with the institution.s 2014 Stuart Regen Visionary award. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director explained: "I don.t think anyone.s gonna use [Noah] to recruit people to become true »

One Guardian Of The Galaxy Wasn't Even Supposed To Be In The Film

4 hours ago

Rocket Raccoon.s stunning cinematic debut in Guardians Of The Galaxy this summer saw him instantly become one of the superhero genre.s most beloved characters. But, as it turns out, it almost never happened. According to Nicole Perlman, the co-writer of the huge summer smash-hit, Rocket wasn.t included in the film.s first draft, and it took some convincing to actually add him to the final version. Perlman made the revelation during her appearance on John August and Craig Mazin.s Scriptnotes, an integral podcast that all bona-fide film aficionados should listen to. When discussing why the angriest raccoon to ever grace the galaxy wasn.t always such an integral member of Marvel.s script, Perlman declared, "There were versions that didn.t have Rocket, early on. There was a fear that Rocket . would come across as too cartoony. But it all worked out." It.s now basically »

5 hours ago

Poor Robert Downey Jr. All the dude wants to do is talk about The Judge.

Indiana Jones 5 Is Happening, Here's The Latest

6 hours ago

Indiana Jones 5 is apparently finally going to happen, after several years of false starts, bogus rumors and alleged new casting announcements. And it looks like it's cinematographer Janusz Kaminski we have to thank for having a part in revealing that production on the fifth installment to the beloved franchise could soon become a reality. During a Variety expose on his career, it was flippantly reveled that Kaminski.s "next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie." While this appears to have been thrown in to the article as almost a last thought, Indiana Jones devotees quickly latched on to the revelation, taking it as indication that the fifth film has finally been announced, and that we can all finally try to move on from the cinematic nightmare that was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. Harsh I know, but fair. It.s been over six »

This Is Who James Marsden Wants For Young Cyclops

8 hours ago

Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse will be starting production next year, which means that the next few months are going to be packed with all kinds of casting rumors. Surely the movie will introduce characters we've never seen before on the big screen, but one interesting twist coming is that the film will also be looking for young versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm (who were played by James Marsden, Famke Janssen and Halle Berry, respectively, in the original X-Men trilogy). At this stage in the game we have no idea who 20th Century Fox is looking at for the new parts, but now Marsden himself has put in his two cents about who his younger replacement should be. Currently out promoting his role in the upcoming Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Best of Me, Marsden recently sat down for an interview with Yahoo! and revealed that he would be »

How Star Wars Producers Screwed Alec Guinness Out Of Millions

8 hours ago

Poor old Alec Guinness. While it.s no secret that his performances as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars trilogy netted him a rather hefty paycheck thanks to an agreement he.d signed before taking the part, it turns out he would have earned even more money had the producers kept a verbal agreement supposedly struck between Guinness and director George Lucas. That's right. Guinness was allegedly screwed out of .25% of the film's earnings. While that doesn.t sound like a lot, the fact that the Star Wars films have gone on to gross billions upon billions of dollars at the box office alone, that ends up being a whole heap of change. Especially when you start to add the revenue generated from merchandise and toys to the mix! My wallet is crying just thinking of the sum he missed out on! Anyway, when Guinness originally made the deal, »

Why Luke Skywalker May Be The Obi-Wan Of Star Wars 7

10 hours ago

All the way back in early 2013 - long before any kind of official statements were made about the Star Wars: Episode VII cast or plot - Mark Hamill pitched what he would like to see from Luke Skywalker in J.J. Abrams' new movie. While he had not yet met with producer Kathleen Kennedy or then-Episode VII screenwriter Michael Arndt, the actor suggested that that the Jedi could move into the "Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character" who plays an important role while making way for the younger generation. If new rumors are to be believed - and that's a pretty big "if" - then it looks like star may actually be getting his wish. JediNews has gotten hold of a scoop from an anonymous source claiming to have inside knowledge about what's going on with Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII, and it suggesters that the other rumors »

Here's How Ant-Man Could Beat The Hell Out Of The Hulk

10 hours ago

Size matters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which is why a key co-star in Peyton Reed.s upcoming Ant-Man isn.t afraid to (hypothetically) pit tiny Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) against furious Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). Let.s make this happen in The Avengers 3, Joss Whedon! House of Cards and The Strain co-star Corey Stoll tossed out this fun bit of Marvel fan-service in an interview with Clevver Movies, where he waxed poetically about the big sell of the Ant-Man movie . how will Peyton Reed figure out how to convincingly make an insect-sized hero? That certainly was a challenge in the footage that we saw in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, where Paul Rudd.s character climbed on the back of an ant and flew away from trouble. Stoll addresses the unique nature of the character powers in the upcoming movie, saying: That seems like being the opposite »

While Christopher Nolan isn't the type to give away the whole bloody movie in one trailer, this has to be his most cryptic marketing campaign yet. Considering his past track record, this is an impressive feat that shows us just how wrong we are when we think we can call all of Nolan's tricks from the off. Here now are ten images from the latest Interstellar trailer that have us looking at the screen with the biggest "Wtf" face we can muster. A Robot Helper What is that walking robotic helper following Matthew McConaughey? They seem to have hinted towards it in the previous trailers, but what does the name "Tars" stand for?

Watch Tom Cruise Get Killed Off Over And Over In This Darkly Funny Edge Of Tomorrow Supercut

13 hours ago

Spoiler Alert: Tom Cruise dies a lot in Edge of Tomorrow. Ok, that's barely a spoiler, as the premise of the film involves Cruise's character living the same day over and over, as it resets every time he dies. With that said, if you haven't seen the movie yet, you might want to skip this video, as this darkly amusing "death edit" is kind of spoilery. You know he dies a lot, but seeing those scenes for the first time is better in context. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Edge of Tomorrow.

14 hours ago

Doctor Strange is coming. On this, we can bet big money. Marvel President Kevin Feige has expressed great interest (numerous times) in bringing the sorcerer to the big screen in a Marvel movie, preferably as part of the Universe.s Phase Three. We thought we.d know by now who will be playing Dr. Stephen Strange in the standalone movie, but behind-the-scenes wranglings have prevented that reveal. until now. Joaquin Phoenix.s name has been attached to the role Doctor Strange for some time now, but the Web site ThisIsInfamous now floats the rumor that the part has been offered to Ethan Hawke, and that the Boyhood star accepted over the weekend. Allegedly, Hawke is hammering out final negotiation points, which would include "a six-picture deal" which will be finalized and announced "soon enough." This isn.t That far-fetched, if only because Marvel has hired director Scott Derrickson to helm »

15 hours ago

The Hateful Eight has found a base of operation in Colorado. As Quentin Tarantino and company sign deals for the film's production, local papers are dropping all kinds of juicy details on this acclaimed writer/director's eighth feature film. The Denver Post's focus on their Hateful Eight article was about the production's use of the state's filming incentive program and how this will encourage local job growth. But amid specifics on rebates and contracts, some enticing elements of the film's making have been unearthed. For his Western, Quentin Tarantino sent location scouts to Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado, before choosing the last--it's believed in part because of its likelihood for snow, a key element of the plot synopsis.
