The Weird And Funny Things Couples Do While Watching Movies Together

5 hours ago

Sometimes, all you want to do with an evening is spend it cuddled up to your nearest and dearest, in the warmth of your home, watching an entertaining cinematic yarn together. That.s how you intend for the evening to go. However, it seldom ever turns out that way, and now Buzz Feed has created a rather prescient and excellent video of the trials and tribulations that couples go through on movie night. You can check out the clip above. So, what do we learn? First off, actually deciding to watch a movie together is always the second option, as it is always preceded by one of the parties suggesting that they just have sex instead. But when the other decides that they.re just not in the mood to do the no-pants dance, this usually results in the couple watching a film together. And this is where the drama »

5 hours ago

While it's not the longest wait between sequels, the fourteen years that fans have been waiting for a proper follow up to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon have flown by like Chow Yun Fat himself. As early as last January we had been hearing reports of The Weinstein Company's eventual development and ultimate production of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, but besides a couple of casting notices we hadn't really heard a lot about the film. Today we not only have a firm release date for the film's release, but we also have two gorgeous photos and some news on the film's unique distribution model. In an official press release today, Netflix announced that in addition to a limited global rollout in the IMAX format, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend will be the first film to be make its bow as a Netflix Original. Much like their »

6 hours ago

Magic Mike was one of 2012.s most surprising hits, as it ultimately grossed close to $170 million from a measly budget of just $7 million. As is Hollywood.s want when a film is unexpectedly successful, a sequel was instantly requested, and Channing Tatum, who both inspired, produced and starred in the original, was only happy to oblige. Now, just over two summers after the original was released, the full, official synopsis for its follow-up, Magic Mike Xxl, has been unveiled too. You can check it out in all of its glory below: Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, Magic Mike Xxl finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel.

If Ben Affleck Keeps His Batsuit, He'll Have To Forfeit A Stupid Amount Of Money

8 hours ago

Like any other Batman fan, when Ben Affleck actually got his hands on his very own Batsuit he never wanted to let go. It just so happened, however, that Affleck.s Dark Knight attire had been assembled for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and when he asked Warner Bros how much it would cost him to take it home so that he could play Batman in the privacy of his backyard he was told it would cost him $100,000. Featured as a guest on Live With Kelly And Michael, Affleck revealed that he balked at the price, and then decided that it would probably be better if he settled with a photo -a decision that his wife, Jennifer Garner, surely agreed with. Said the soon-to-be Caped Crusader, "I asked them, .What about taking the suit home at the end of the thing?. And they said, .For $100k.. And I said, »

Congratulations To Satan For Getting Quoted In Left Behind's Marketing Materials!

8 hours ago

There are few things for an entertainment journalist more weirdly exciting than getting a quote on a movie's marketing materials. The notification email brings with it a rush of weird emotions including but not limited to happiness, pride, nervousness and uncomfort at the weird ethical gray area between critic and marketing aide. Many of us have felt it before, and now, we can add a new brother-in-arms: Satan. The Prince of Darkness was officially given the thumbs up earlier this month, and now has a pull quote on the Left Behind poster. Check it out for yourself, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter. Created by God along with a whole bunch of angels, Satan originally lived in Heaven, but after a pretty serious falling out, he decided to move down to Hell with some of his buddies, whom he promptly renamed demons. Despite some issues with the weather, they all seem »

How Fast & Furious 7 Will Be Directly Connected To Its Director's Past

8 hours ago

When Justin Lin came aboard the Fast & Furious with Tokyo Drift back in 2006, he pulled off something rather creative. By introducing Han, played by Sung Kang, into the series, the director managed to create a continuity connection between the car racing franchise and Lin.s directorial debut, the indie thriller Better Luck Tomorrow. It was such a fascinating and unique move that it got me wondering if Fast & Furious 7 helmer James Wan would be game to do something similar. So when I got the chance to speak with the filmmaker this past weekend, I took the opportunity to ask. This past weekend I took part in the press junket for the new horror film Annabelle (the upcoming spin-off from 2013's The Conjuring), and while sitting down with John Leonetti (Annabelle.s director) and James Wan (Annabelle.s producer), I asked point blank if there was a possibility that the Fast »

Will Someone Please Tell Jeremy Renner If He.s Actually In Captain America 3?

11 hours ago

There has been a lot of evidence pointing towards Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye being heavily featured in Joe and Anthony Russo's upcoming Captain America 3. Renner himself has hinted at the idea a couple of times in interviews, and the directors have gone public lamenting the fact that they couldn't properly squeeze him into Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But before fans start getting ahead of themselves and dreaming of the hero's possible role, they might want to slow down just a bit. Despite what internet reports have said, it looks like Hawkeye may not actually be locked in for Captain America 3 yet - and if he is, nobody has actually bothered to tell Jeremy Renner about it yet. The actor addressed the rumors during a recent interview with The Daily Beast, and while he did confirm that he has seen all of the reports, he also claims »

13 hours ago

Sony had its sights set on The Equalizer 2 long before Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua.s hard-hitting justice thriller opened to a robust $34.1 million . Washington.s best opening since 2012.s Safe House notched $40.1 million. Those who saw The Equalizer in theaters know that a franchise officially is launched with this initial movie. But where do we stand as far as the immediate future for The Equalizer 2? During an exclusive conversation with Antoine Fuqua regarding his latest movie, we got around to talking about plans he might have for the follow up. He told me: We have talked about it a lot. Myself, the studio and Denzel. Everybody wants to. We.re all adults, we know. Let the audience decide, and we.ll roll with the results. If all goes well, I.ll definitely be back. I would love to do it again. I think there is a lot of room, »

Stan Lee May Be Secretly Playing The Same Marvel Character In Every Movie

13 hours ago

When you consider the high level of attention paid to continuity that exists in modern comic book movie franchises, the ubiquitous presence of Marvel co-founder Stan Lee produces an interesting puzzle. It.s weird enough that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has presented him as a World War II general, "Larry King," a poison-soda drinker, a Xandarian Ladies' Man, and more - but it.s even more bizarre when you factor in his appearances alongside the X-Men, different versions of Spider-Man, and other superheroes as well (imagining, naturally, that he is always the same guy). Of course, we all know that the cameos are really meant as tribute to the man who did his part to create some of the greatest fictional characters in history, but what if the legendary writer has been playing a secret role this entire time? In case you couldn.t already tell, it.s fan speculation »

Clerks 3 Is Finally Happening, Here's Why

14 hours ago

As it turns out, Kevin Smith.s Tusk is going to give us something besides crippling nightmares of Justin Long wearing a walrus suit. The indie director claims, on his latest Hollywood Babble-On podcast, that the mere existence of Tusk got Kevin Smith the financing that he needed for Clerks 3. Smith begins the latest podcast attacking his audience (playfully) about not supporting the movie. "Tusk opened about as poorly as a movie can open," Smith admitted. But the director quickly found the silver lining in the financial disaster, stating: Everything in my life would suck right now if I hadn.t made that movie. I.m back in movies now. I.ve got three lined up, and this is the fucking grand news. Tusk was the absolute bridge to Clerks 3. Because of Tusk, I got my financing for Clerks 3. . It was Tusk. It was people going .Holy Fuck!

16 hours ago

One week before it is due to open in theaters, David Fincher.s Gone Girl opened to critical acclaim as part of the New York Film Festival line up. Every time a prestige picture like Gone Girl opens from now until the end of the year, we.re likely going to spend some time dissecting the movie.s Oscar chances, and for Gone Girl, they.re pretty great. Join the conversation in this week.s Monday Movie Memo, featured above. Gone Girl adapts Gillian Flynn.s best-selling novel about Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck), a self-absorbed, unemployed writer who becomes the center of a murder investigation when his picture-perfect wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), goes missing. As much of a whodunit as it is a biting critique on the media, Gone Girl sizzles with mesmerizing performances, and once again shows Fincher at the top of his game. Our full review will be »

See The World Turn On Superman In These New Batman V Superman Pictures!

16 hours ago

New on-set photos from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice have revealed that the world isn.t at all happy with Superman at the start of the Man Of Steel sequel. In fact, Metropolis.s citizens are so mad with Krypton.s most famous son that they.re protesting his mere presence on Earth. You can check out the on-set photos that prove this below: "Super Death"? Swastikas? Protests in Metropolis (#Detroit) against Superman! #BatmanvSuperman @D3T0N8R Let's go see! pic.twitter.com/eTcv2M54Ja. Tim Reinman (@treinman) September 29, 2014 Poor Kal-El.

Oh, actually, when you think about it, he did cause an obscene amount of damage to both Smallville and Metropolis as he fought off the villain, »

This History Of Batman Theme Songs Medley Is An A+

17 hours ago

The Piano Guys have paid homage to Batman.s iconic soundtrack with a four minute and 21 second video homage that zips from the 1966 television series to Tim Burton.s 1989 cinematic reboot before finally ending on Christopher Nolan.s lauded Dark Knight trilogy with aplomb. It.s an amazing celebration of Neal Hefti, Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer.s work, and if you call yourself a Batman fan you need to spend a good portion of your day watching the above video. I know, I know . it.s pretty special isn.t it? This isn.t the first time that The Piano Guys have taken on classic movie material though, and over the last few years the group -- which consists of Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek -- have replicated Star Wars, Frozen, and the Bourne trilogy.s soundtracks, while their first three major-label »

Watch Frozen's Elsa Drop Snow White And An F-Bomb In This Ice Cold Rap

19 hours ago

Warning: This video includes language that is Nsfw. Just when you thought you've seen every Frozen parody imaginable, comediennes Whitney Avalon and Katja Glieson wage a rap battle between Disney's first princess and their latest. Snow White's eponymous pale princess sneers at Frozen's Elsa, mocking her messy hair and interior design skills. But can she withstand what happens when Elsa lets it go with f-bombs and powers of ice and snow? There's a lot to admire in this clever parody that pulls influence from the viral webseries Epic Rap Battles. First off, props to Avalon who nails Snow White's high-pitched voice while laying down cutting rhymes "like a boss." But you can't beat the contemporary swag of Glieson's enraged ice queen. She's rocking that floppy, sloppy ponytail (no matter what Snow says) and she's not only got supernatural powers, but that belter's bravado. Playing back-up/hype(wo)men to these »

The One Director Millennium Hasn't Called About London Has Fallen

19 hours ago

Industry analysts were surprised when Olympus Has Fallen director Antoine Fuqua walked away from the franchise right as it appeared to be blossoming. The sequel, London Has Fallen, was under way, with Fuqua.s cast . notably leading man Gerard Butler . returning to continue the story. So when London Has Fallen lost its replacement director, we wondered if Fuqua.s telephone has been ringing. As it turns out, no one has called. We were speaking with Antoine Fuqua about his hit action thriller The Equalizer, which cleaned up at the box office over the weekend. But when I asked him if he.d been approached to swing to the rescue of London Has Fallen now that it is without a director, he told me: No, man. I turned it down early, early on when I read the first draft of the script. And no, I haven.t spoken to anybody since »

The Utterly Absurd Way Christopher Walken Amuses Himself On Movie Sets

20 hours ago

Christopher Walken, with his stone-face and signature elocution, has built an incredible mystique over the course of his career. And like another odd yet deeply beloved actor (Jeff Goldblum) he knows you are obsessed with him. And he uses this cultural fascination with his Walken ways to his own bemusement, and cake-getting. Maggie Q, Walken's co-star in the sports comedy Balls of Fury, has given the world a glimpse into the strange inner life of Christopher Walken. In her Reddit Ama to promote her upcoming series Stalker, she sang the praises of Tom Cruise, discussed her process, and spoke out for animal rights. But amid all that Maggie Q delivered a bizarre and yet believable story about how Walken amuses himself during the downtime on film shoots. Essentially, he fakes his birthday. Asked if Christopher Walken is "funny as hell" in real life, Maggie Q answered, "Christopher Walken is not »

20 hours ago

Comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been winning critical praise and fan devotion with their satirical sketch comedy show Key & Peele. Now they've set their sites on Hollywood with a slate of film projects, including a Police Academy reboot. But with their skills of seamlessly taking on a wide array of roles, why are these two insanely funny men saying they may not appear in the reboot of the crime comedy? They fear they may pull focus. Speaking to EW while serving as guest editors, Key and Peele were up front about their aims for Police Academy. Jordan Peele explained: "When we start working with the script and seeing it, we.ll make the decision (of whether or not to join the cast). Is Key and Peele a distraction from Police Academy? We.ll figure it out. Either way, we.ll make the best call for the movie." Keegan-Michael »
