2 hours ago

Jon Stewart started in the entertainment industry as a stand-up comedian, but over the years he has really become much more than that. As the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, he has long had a platform for not only up-to-the-minute biting social satire, but also for being the one who watches the watchers - becoming a trusted name in news broadcasting and one of the strongest critics of the endless 24-hour news cycle. Stewart has already accomplished an incredible amount during his career, but this year he is ready to add one more credit to his resume: director. Above, thanks to Apple, you'll find the first trailer for Rosewater, a film based on the book by and true story of journalist Maziar Bahari, which has been adapted for the big screen by Stewart as his directorial debut.

Ben Kingsley Thinks The Mandarin May Have Tricked All Of Us In Iron Man 3

4 hours ago

After months and months of teasing the fulfillment of The Mandarin/Ten Rings storyline first hinted at the start of the franchise, Iron Man 3's revelation that The Mandarin was actually just an act portrayed by a washed up stage actor either pissed you off or really entertained you. Regardless, the character that we thought was the head of the Ten Rings terrorist organization turned out to really only be a threat to himself, and he (real name Trevor Slattery) was thrown in jail for his connection to Aldrich Killian's evil plans. While we presumed the story ended there, the Marvel One Shot Hail To The King changed our perceptions yet again, revealing that the real Mandarin was still out there somewhere. The twists and turns keep coming, and you should prepare for more, as we now have yet another knot of uncertainty. IGN has Sir Ben Kingsley on »

Doctor Doom Will Look Like This In The New Fantastic Four

4 hours ago

In an ideal world, where different studios didn.t retain the rights to different Marvel characters, there would be no Thanos. There would be Doom. Marvel.s first and second phases likely wouldn.t be building up to a confrontation between The Avengers and the Mad Titan. They.d be laying the foundation for several squabbles between Earth.s mightiest heroes and the power-hungry Victor von Doom. Except Doctor Doom belongs to 20th Century Fox. So that is where the leader of Latveria will remain, showing up next in the rebooted The Fantastic Four and looking like the figure in the leaked images below. Which is sad, because Doctor Doom deserves so much more. He ranks as one of Marvel.s most complicated, powerful, menacing, egomaniacal and dangerous supervillains . a genius inventor, scientist and sorcerer who has created massive problems for so many Marvel superheroes ever since he was first »

7 Marvelous Facts Captain America's Directors Think You Need To Know

6 hours ago

Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are allowing themselves a victory lap. It won.t last long. Soon, the siblings will have to plunge head first into pre-production on Captain America 3, as the sequel is due to hit theaters in May 2016. But before that, the brothers hopped on the phone with us to celebrate The Winter Soldier now that it.s reaching Blu-ray and DVD. With good reason. The second Cap film continued Marvel.s white-hot streak of quality entertainment. And it banked enough cash ($259.7M) to become the highest-grossing domestic feature of 2014. a distinction it.s likely to relent to Marvel.s own Guardians of the Galaxy. Needless to say, we had a lot to talk about with the Russos, from Captain America: The Winter Soldier to Marvel.s plans for Captain America 3 and beyond. Starting with.

I Think Ghostbusters Ruined Movies For My Mom

8 hours ago

"Yes, it.s true. This man has no dick." Today is National Ghostbusters Day. Thirty years ago, Ivan Reitman.s Ghostbusters took theaters by storm by introducing an irreverent band of failing scientists who poured their passing interest in the paranormal into a fledgling Manhattan business. "We.re ready to believe you," they promised in their low-budget television ads, and audiences were ready to support them. By the end of the year, Ghostbusters had packed enough theaters and sold enough tickets to earn $229 million at the domestic box office. I was personally responsible for at least two of those tickets. I.ve regretted it ever since. Not for the reasons you might assume. I adore Ghostbusters. It.s one of those formative comedies from my particular childhood, a movie that helped shape the type of movie lover that I am today. I acknowledge that it doesn.t quite hold up »

Charlie Hunnam Has Been Crowned As The New King Arthur

8 hours ago

Every now and then, there are two actors whose careers seem to circle around each other, covering similar ground and affording one actor opportunities when the other passes or drops out of a project. The most legendary pair of that sort is that of Richard Gere and John Travolta, as the latter has passed on films like An Officer And A Gentleman, American Gigolo, and most notably Chicago, leaving the former to be cast in his absence. If this recent casting news out of Guy Richie's King Arthur project is any indication, Charlie Hunnam and Jamie Dornan just might become that new pair of opportunists. Deadline was pleased to report that Pacific Rim actor Charlie Hunnam has signed on for the first of a planned six-picture franchise of King Arthur tales, which will have its first installment directed by Richie and is being aimed for a July 2016 release.

Martin Scorsese Is Making A Ramones Biopic

19 hours ago

Music has long played a very important role in Martin Scorsese's career. Whether it's the memorable uses of songs like Eric Clapton's "Layla" or "I.m Shipping Up to Boston" by Dropkick Murphys in features like Goodfellas and The Departed or concert documentaries he's helmed like The Last Waltz and Shine A Light, the filmmaker has long found a way to bring the two mediums into harmonious sync. It's for this reason that we're not at all shocked by what's being proposed as Scorsese's next project after the religious period drama Silence. Billboard has it on good authority that Martin Scorsese is in the early process of trying to make a movie about The Ramones, the legendary punk band. While things appear to still be in the early stages, Jeff Jampol and Dave Frey - the co-managers of the band's estate - are working to plan a big »

The Underworld Franchise Is Being Rebooted

21 hours ago

Similar to Screen Gems' other major franchise, Resident Evil, the Underworld movies were always far more successful internationally than there were here in the United States. While none of the films thus far have managed to break $65 million here in the States, the box office numbers balloon to triple digits when the foreign markets are accounted for. The studio has been profiting off of this pattern going back to the first movie's release back in 2003, but apparently they are no longer happy with the progress - which is why they are now hitting the reset button. After only little more than a decade in existence, the Underworld franchise is getting a reboot. This news comes to us via The Hollywood Reporter, which adds that screenwriter Cory Goodman has already been hired to start working on the project's screenplay. At this point in time there doesn't seem to be any »

Robert Downey Jr. Puts His Ego Aside, Admits Guardians Of The Galaxy Is The Best Marvel Movie

22 hours ago

Going back to 2008, Robert Downey Jr. has been the face of the Marvel Studios franchise. It was his performance as Tony Stark in Jon Favreau's Iron Man that lit the powder keg that wound up becoming the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he has been a key player and figure ever since. As important as both Downey Jr. and Iron Man have been to the success of Marvel, however, the actor will now admit that it's actually not one of his movies that represents the best that the company can produce. Instead, that distinction belongs to the sci-fi opera that landed in theaters earlier this month: James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Downey Jr. recently arrived in Toronto, Canada in advance of the Toronto International Film Festival - where his new movie, The Judge, will debut - and while speaking with the Toronto Sun the star revealed that he »

Captain America 3 Directors Confirm The Return Of The Winter Soldier

23 hours ago

Spoiler Warning! The following article contains spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If you haven't seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier yet and wish to not have any of the movie ruined for yourself, I recommend clicking on another one of our fantastic other stories! While Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier is certainly a complete, three-act structured film, that doesn't mean it doesn't leave a couple of loose threads dangling. For example, the movie's two titular characters have an epic showdown on a crashing helicarrier, but the end doesn't exactly feature the two of them hugging it out and reminiscing about old times. Instead, the movie featured Cap and The Winter Soldier a.k.a. Bucky going separate ways, with the former deciding to team up with Falcon to go on a mission and find the latter. This was pretty obviously a set-up for »

Here Are All The Hollywood Movies Russia Recommends Its Citizens Watch

27 August 2014 3:14 PM, PDT

Over the past few years, anti-Western sentiment has spread through portions of Russian society. In fact, there.s currently a bill being debated that would ban foreign films that portray Russia or its citizens in a negative manner. Fortunately, that doesn.t mean the country has adopted a completely negative attitude toward Hollywood. In fact, the Ministry of Culture just released a list of movies it recommends all Russians watch, and it is filled with some of the greatest flicks Americans have ever produced. Of the 100 entries chosen, a good percentage of them come from Hollywood, and many of them are exactly the ones you would expect. It.s A Wonderful Life, Titanic, One Flew Over The Cuckoo.s Nest, Star Wars, E.T. and The Wizard Of Oz. Others, however, you probably wouldn.t have guessed immediately. They include Bambi, Amadeus, Apocalypse Now and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. You »

Steve Carell To Star In The New Looney Tunes Movie

27 August 2014 2:22 PM, PDT

Just because you don't hear about a certain in-development movie for a number of years doesn't actually mean that the project will never end up on the silver screen. Some are just destined to spend a bit of time in what has been dubbed "Development Hell." Take, for example, the Looney Tunes Acme factory film. We first wrote about the feature all the way back in October 2010, but haven't heard a peep about it since. That is, until now. It turns out that Warner Bros. has been actively developing the new Looney Tunes feature for a while now, and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, they've already assembled a number of interesting names to work together on making it real. Sources say that Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, two of the screenwriters behind Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, have been hired to write a script for the "untitled Acme movie project. »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Has Hit A Huge Box Office Milestone

27 August 2014 12:50 PM, PDT

Marvel Studios has firmly established itself as one of the biggest - if not the biggest - brands in Hollywood. After six years of releasing movies, the company has not only made two of the highest grossing films of all time - Joss Whedon's The Avengers and Shane Black's Iron Man 3 - but also has proven able to take a property that nobody has ever heard of and turn it into gold. Guardians of the Galaxy had more than its fair share of detractors when it was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, but now that particular project has made more than half a billion dollars at the global box office and can be called the biggest hit domestically of the summer season. The numbers are in, and at the time of this article's publication, Box Office Mojo says that James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy »

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been spending more time on the big screen lately, with roles in such high-prestige pics like Lee Daniels' The Butler and the upcoming Civil Rights docudrama Selma. But for her next film, she's going downright gritty. TMZ reports Oprah Winfrey has been cast to play a brothel-running madam in the biopic about the late Richard Pryor. But this is no common lady pimp role. Winfrey is set to portray a very pivotal figure in the young Pryor's life. That would be none other than the iconic and crass comedian's grandmother, Marie Carter. After Pryor's mother abandoned him at the age of ten, the boy went to live with his father's mother in Peoria, Illinois. There, little Pryor grew up in a brothel. Let's take a moment to let that settle in...Okay? Pryor's widow Jennifer Lee told TMZ that Oprah Winfrey has been eager to »

Do DC Comics Movies Have A 'No Jokes' Policy?

27 August 2014 11:29 AM, PDT

Marvel movies rely on their humor, and their cavalier attitude. Man of Steel, as a counterbalance, did not. Star-Lord, Chris Pratt's Guardians of the Galaxy hero, cracks jokes. In Christopher Nolan.s world, Bane cracked Batman.s spine. It.s not an easy divide between Marvel and DC movies to say that one side drifts toward light while the other embraces the shadows. Step back and look at the big picture, though, and this appears to be one crucial way to categorize the cinematic universes that are developing on screen between the rival studios. Now, one interesting report says that this is by design. Drew McWeeny at HitFix writes an engaging column about the alleged "No jokes" policy that is in place at Warner Bros. as the studio builds its DC universe off of the success of Zack Snyder.s Man of Steel. This is an important time for »

Following up on the new trailer for the feature adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns comes the international trailer, which takes a different approach in terms of the tone of the film. While the trailer that released at Comic-Con showed off a mixture of humor and horror, this one takes it to full horror and suspense, as we see Daniel Radcliffe getting in touch with his dark side... Directed by Alexandre Aja, based on Joe Hill's book, Horns stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish, a man living in the aftermath of his girlfriend Merrin's murder.

It's a useful gift to have if you're trying to figure out who murdered your girlfriend, but as you can see in »
