Why Ben Stiller Figured Zoolander 2 Would Never Get Made

2 hours ago

Thanks to the power of nostalgia, properties that were popular once are finding ways to make a comeback. The Jurassic Park series has evolved to Jurassic World, and we.re getting ready to meet four new Ghostbusters, just to give you two examples. However, not every old property expects to come back, especially if it isn.t a white-hot hit the first time around. This weekend.s Zoolander 2 falls in to that category. Arriving in theaters 15 years after the original film.s release, the sequel returns fashion model Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and his rival/partner Hansel (Owen Wilson) to the catwalk for a second adventure. Though, at the film.s New York premiere, Stiller admits it.s an adventure he never thought he.d take, because no one paid attention to the initial movie at first. Stiller told the premiere crowd, courtesy of Variety:   "I think we probably »

How Ant-Man Co-Star Bobby Cannavale Annoyed The Hell Out Of His Director On The Set

2 hours ago

Last year in Ant-Man, the Boardwalk Empire and Vinyl star Bobby Cannavale played Paxton, the San Francisco Police Department Officer who was engaged to Scott Lang’s ex-wife Maggie. As far as supporting characters go, Paxton fulfilled his role as the guy trying to prevent Scott from committing any more crimes without knowing the full story of his superhero life. On camera the character was well-intentioned (if misguided), but behind the scenes Cannavale was doing his best to annoy director Peyton Reed as much as possible. Cannavale recounted to EW how, while shooting Ant-Man, he would frequently ask Peyton Reed obnoxious and way too specific questions about his “motivation for everything.” Here’s one of the examples the actor provided: And then I said, ‘So, I’m standing here, and this tank comes flying out, wouldn’t the debris kill me?’ »

Deadpool Could Have A Boyfriend In The Future, According To Ryan Reynolds

3 hours ago

We.re still a few days away from Deadpool hitting cinemas, but it.s already garnered a reputation as the most controversial instalment of the comic-book genre yet. But, the creative team behind the adaptation wouldn.t be against pushing the envelope even further, with Ryan Reynolds admitting that he.d love to see Wade Wilson/Deadpool with a boyfriend. Ryan Reynolds, who after originally portraying a rather lackluster version of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, has been a key player in bringing an authentic adaptation of Deadpool to the big-screen, made this admission (via Variety) while he was out promoting the film.s imminent release, insisting that the character is perfectly placed to break down this boundary.  I love that about Deadpool. I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more. I certainly wouldn.t be the guy standing »

Sonic The Hedgehog Is Getting A Movie, Get The Details

4 hours ago

Video game adaptations have had a difficult time on the big screen. When the highlight of the genre is the Resident Evil franchise you don.t exactly have a lot to hang your hat on. That hasn.t stopped numerous game studios from licensing their properties to try and become that first breakout hit. Now Sega has announced that their most famous creation will be getting his own feature film. Sonic the Hedgehog is coming to the big screen. 1991 alongside their Genesis game console Sega introduced Sonic the Hedgehog as their fast talking, and even faster moving, mascot to compete with Mario and Nintendo. While initially a hit with gamers, the character has had trouble finding his footing since games transitioned to the third dimension. Games have continued to be developed, though many have fallen flat in recent years as Sega implemented numerous new mechanics that players don't want. Regardless, »

Deadpool 2 Likely Will Include This Pivotal Comic Book Character

4 hours ago

Deadpool is only a few days away from being released to U.S. audiences, but the movie has already received exuberant praise from many critics (like our own Eric Eisenberg). So much so that yesterday it was reported that 20th Century Fox has already greenlit a sequel, with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick returning to pen the script. Without seeing the first movie, it.s hard to pinpoint where Deadpool 2 might go, but wherever the destination, apparently he.ll be going there with one of his frequent crimefighting partners: Cable. Over the last couple months, both Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool director Tim Miller have expressed interest in including Cable in Deadpool 2, and now Comicbook.com has heard that the techno-organic mutant has been added to the cast. Although it.s unclear what role he.ll play in the sequel, it.s expected that he.ll have a major presence rather »

4 hours ago

The deeper we dive into the Marvel Cinematic Universe the closer we come to one undeniable truth: people are going to start dying. While we don’t know exactly when or how it will begin to happen, it’s a near certainty at this point that some of the characters that we’ve grown very close to over the years will begin to fall. Now, word is coming out that we may lose a fan favorite when Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters next year. Potential spoilers for the next Thor movie follow. You have been warned.

Why Sylvester Stallone Thinks Creed Should Be The Last Rocky Movie

5 hours ago

With the success of Creed, both Sylvester Stallone and the Rocky franchise have returned to a place of success and critical acclaim. It.s no surprise that they.re looking at the possibility of following it up with another movie. However, while we might be seeing more of Adonis Creed in the future, it.s possible that we.ve seen the last of Rocky Balboa. Stallone now says that Creed was a perfect place to say goodbye to the 40-year-old character. Sylvester Stallone was honored this week at the Santa Barbara film festival with the Montecito Award, which was presented by his longtime Rocky co-star Carl Weathers. According to Variety, he was asked about the possibility of another sequel but his response looks to make that very unlikely, as Stallone thinks the character's story may have reached the end. I really have mixed feelings about this, seriously. I feel like »

This Is How Star Wars: The Force Awakens Should Have Ended

5 hours ago

Now that we.ve all had time to properly reflect on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it.s clear that, while the movie is still pretty good, it wasn.t without its problems. If there.s one group that knows how to fix the problems with movies, it.s the team at How it Should Have Ended. They.ve finally decided to take aim at the biggest movie ever and they.ve found quite a few changes that should have been made. Do...do we need to do the spoiler thing? Yeah, there are spoilers. Much of the video is actually dedicated to fixing holes in the movie rather than specifically dealing with how it ended. We have to admit that that if Tr-8R had just shot Finn, that fight would have been over much sooner. Also, the whole light speed approach thing? We all knew that was a »

Matt Damon Throws Awesome Oscar Shade At Leonardo DiCaprio Over The Revenant

6 hours ago

In the build-up to the Academy Awards, all eyes seem to be on Leonardo DiCaprio. His performance in The Revenant seems to be the one to beat. Much of the reason for all the talk is centered around the apparently harrowing experience that DiCaprio and the rest of the cast and crew went through in order to make the film. Well, Matt Damon would like to point out that he.s nominated for the same award, and he earned it while staying warm. Damon was introducing Ridley Scott, his director on The Martian, at the Director.s Guild Awards on Saturday night and felt obligated to point out that it is possible to make great movies without risking life and limb. The Martian, like The Revenant, is also a movie about a lone man trying to survive amidst harsh conditions, but when filming ended for Damon, the harsh conditions did »

Johnny Depp Playing Donald Trump In A Fake Biopic Is The Weirdest Thing You'll Ever See

7 hours ago

Did you know Donald Trump wrote a book? If you.ve heard the man speak for any length of time, you probably do, as he brings this fact up approximately every minute and a half. But did you also know they made a TV movie based on Trump's book, The Art of the Deal? Ok, that last part isn.t entirely true. There.s isn.t a real movie based on the book, but there is a spoof and it.s hilarious, and mildly terrifying. The team over at Funny or Die has put together The Art of the Deal as a 1980.s style movie of the week, complete with ridiculous rock theme song and introduction by Ron Howard. Howard, claims the movie was set to be aired on television in 1988 before being pre-empted for Monday Night Football, a show that aired every week. The film, which is nearly an »

Wait, Did Ryan Reynolds Leak The Deadpool Footage Himself?

7 hours ago

On Friday, Deadpool will open to a nationwide audience after a development process that began 11 years ago. After being stalled for the better part of a decade, the film finally shifted into high gear after test footage of the movie leaked online a couple of years ago. To this day it.s never been revealed who was responsible for the actual leak. Ryan Reynolds says he doesn.t know who did it, but he.s pretty sure it wasn.t him. Like, almost totally sure. Appearing last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Ryan Reynolds discussed the process of getting the film made, calling it the worst relationship he.s ever been in. When discussing the infamous test footage leak, Reynolds says there are only four people who could have done it. While Reynolds himself is one of them, he.s not taking credit. I know that one »

Stephen King Gives A Dark Tower Update That's Vague But Promising

18 hours ago

Out of the two legendary Stephen King projects that are in development right now, it looks like The Dark Tower has the upper hand in getting to the screen first. Though that victory is just barely won, especially after reading the recent remarks King himself has made about the film's fate.  In an interview with Rolling Stone, Stephen King was asked for comment about the long gestating adaptation and its recent flurry of activity. Seeing as King is an author of the highest order, and known for taking audiences on a cryptic ride with some of his works, he wove his magic in the following status update on the project: It looks to me like it's more likely than not it'll happen at this point. Let's put it that way. I think that it's more likely than not that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be in it. But I »

Johnny Depp Just Joined A Universal Monster Movie

19 hours ago

Universal.s Monsters Universe started to really gain some traction when Tom Cruise signed on to play the (non-mummy) lead in The Mummy. Now, another big star has decided to join the Monsters Universe fray.  A report from The Wrap is saying that Johnny Depp is now attached to a new version of The Invisible Man. Unlike Tom Cruise.s part in The Mummy, Depp is likely taking on the title role. The Invisible Man had a film adaptation in 1933. The story is based on The H.G. Wells book of the same title, which was published in 1897. In the novel, The Invisible Man is a scientist who.s been researching optics and comes up with a way to change the human body so that it absorbs and reflects light, thereby becoming invisible. The movie took a slightly different tack, having that scientist experiment with a drug that makes him »

19 hours ago

While Super Bowl 50 may or may not have been a blast to watch, depending on which side you were rooting for, the commercials were as massively entertaining as expected. In particular, the crop of movie themed ads on display made quite the splash, and a recent report has pegged the 5 most socially effective spots of the night.  Deadline sifted through the social media numbers of leading platforms YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and reported the rankings of the 15 properties that ran a spot Sunday night. Taking into account all the spots shown, including those aired during Pregame and Postgame coverage, the following titles were the most talked about throughout Super Bowl Sunday's social scene: Captain America: Civil War Jason Bourne The Avengers X-Men: Apocalypse Independence Day: Resurgence While Captain America: Civil War's top ranking finish is totally unsurprising, considering how anticipated the film has been since its announcement, the »

Fast 8 Is Making A Major Change With Its Villain

20 hours ago

Fast 8 won't be revving its engines in theaters until next summer, which means there's plenty of time to pop open the hood and retool Universal's franchise before taking it out for another spin. One key component, the film's villain, looks to be undergoing a massive overhaul, as it looks like Dominic Toretto and his crew will be facing down a female antagonist. While we previously thought Jason Statham's Fast 7 baddie Deckard Shaw would be returning, it appears that early word surrounding F. Gary Grey's sequel would be pegging a "lone female" as the cause of the Fast 8 team's woes. Even more exciting is the fact that Deadline mentioned a candidate the studio has in mind for the role, and it's none other than Academy Award winner / road goddess Charlize Theron, who had previously collaborated with Grey in 2003's The Italian Job. We'll let you settle down »

Deadpool 2 Is Already In The Works, Here's What We Know

21 hours ago

In case you hadn't noticed, Deadpool is getting quite a bit of buzz. Critics have been giving it positive reviews the last few days, raising its profile, and right now it looks like the comic book movie could make as much as $70 million in its first weekend. So you know what that means... it's sequel time! The Hollywood Reporter has gotten word from its sources that 20th Century Fox is already very eager for more Deadpool action, and have apparently given Deadpool 2 the green light behind closed doors. As you probably could have guessed, Ryan Reynolds will be back in the titular role, and the trade says that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick - producers on the film and the only writers to work on the script - will be taking care of the screenplay. If the trade's sources are correct, that's three big and important names being brought back »

The Moment When Will Smith Finally Decided To Do Bad Boys 3

22 hours ago

When Zoolander 2 opens up wide this weekend, it will have been fifteen years since the previous movie, which introduced the world to Blue Steel and really, really, ridiculously good looking male models. But it.s not the only long-in-the-works sequel on the way, not by a long shot. We haven.t seen a Bad Boys movie since 2003, but Bad Boys 3 is happening, and star Will Smith says it was one moment that solidified his decision to return to the franchise. Will Smith has been in the news a lot recently for a variety of things, from his role in the NFL head trauma drama Concussion, his part in the upcoming supervillain team up Suicide Squad, and he.s even become embroiled some in the controversy over the lack of diversity at the Academy Awards. But he.s also going to make Bad Boys 3 before long, and when »

Why Josh Brolin Still Hates Jonah Hex, And How He Would Have Fixed It

23 hours ago

Not every comic book movie is guaranteed to be a success at the box office. Sometimes a project will underperform, and once in a while you get something that really tanks on all levels. In 2010, that was Jonah Hex, bringing the famous DC Comics cowboy to the big screen for the first time. Earning almost universally negative reviews, it didn’t even make a fourth of its budget back, making it one of the biggest comic book movie bombs ever. Well, not to worry, fans, you weren’t the only one who didn’t enjoy Jonah Hex. Star Josh Brolin had a terrible time making it, too. During his recent appearance on The Nerdist Podcast, Brolin explained to the hosts how the Jonah Hex movie he ended up shooting was not what he imagined it would be, and believes it would have been more successful with a »
