Super Troopers 2 Just Raised A Crazy Amount Of Money, Is Officially Happening

8 hours ago

Back when the 2001 cult-classic crime-comedy announced it would officially take on a sequel, the excitement among fans was pretty much unanimous. There was always a flirtation with the idea of a sequel, but never a guarantee. That was until 8 months ago when Super Troopers director and co-star Jay Chandrasekhar confirmed that Super Troopers 2 was looking very likely, and the team would participate in a Kickstarter campaign. After seeing the success of the Veronica Mars crowdfunding campaign, the team probably had high hopes. And as it turns out, the campaign (which wrapped up yesterday) absolutely dominated.  The Broken Lizard comedy troupe decided to go for Indiegogo as their crowdfunding platform and for the past 30 days, has been raking in some serious dough. Their initial goal was for $2 million, and they reached it in a matter of 26 hours. They have raised $4,425,495 for production funds, and there.s currently a post-campaign perk, »

Why Avengers 2 Needed Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch

24 April 2015 7:01 PM, PDT

Brother and sister duo Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, are two of the most notable characters being introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron, arguably preceded only by the titular villain himself. Beyond their long history with the team in the comics, director Joss Whedon felt it was necessary that these two be present in the story. Despite finding out that the X-Men film series was using Quicksilver soon after Avengers: Age of Ultron planned to use him, Whedon told Rolling Stone that their version of the siblings not only gives Ultron someone to talk to (since his drones aren.t good for conversation), but also add something special to the story, calling their relationship "sweet and different and strange." In Whedon.s words: We need them because their powers are different, their looks are different, and their opinion is different. They will be young, »

24 April 2015 5:54 PM, PDT

We’ve seen hints and teases of what Jared Leto’s Joker looks like in the upcoming Suicide Squad, but director David Ayers just hit Twitter with our first full view of the Clown Prince of Crime, and it’s not like anything you expected. Even for the Joker, it’s totally nuts. Check it out for yourself.   The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics pic.twitter.com/LZXz0x947Q — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) April 25, 2015 Much like when we saw the first picture of Heath Ledger as Joker in The Dark Knight, Leto’s gives us a radically different version of the iconic villain.

Universal Is Delaying A Ton Of Its Anticipated Titles For Some Reason

24 April 2015 2:11 PM, PDT

While Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios continue expanding their shared cinematic worlds, Universal is pushing back theirs. Following the release date announcements for Fast and Furious 8 and the two Fifty Shades of Grey sequels, the studio has rescheduled the start of its monster movie-verse by nine months and pushed back a few other titles.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal has changed the release date for its reboot of The Mummy from June 24, 2016 to March 24, 2017. This is supposed to further the shared universe of monster films, which reportedly includes Luke EvansDracula Untold. However, this move is out of the ordinary for the studio, considering its desire to focus on developing these properties. This move also means that another untitled monster movie project, originally scheduled for April 21, 2017, will now open on March 30, 2018.  This news comes shortly after similar announcements for Universal and Legendary’s Pacific Rim 2 »

What All Batman And Superman Fights Boil Down To, According To Henry Cavill

24 April 2015 1:19 PM, PDT

In a fight between Batman and Superman, who would emerge the victor? The comic books, animated series and animated movies have attempted to answer this question in various ways, with both characters winning in various circumstances. When asked his opinion on who would win, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Henry Cavill said that it really just depends on Superman.s mood.  In fact, all fights between the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel boil down to "what frame of mind Superman's in," Cavill told JoBlo while out promoting The Man From U.N.C.L.E. at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. While Cavill wouldn.t go on to further clarify what he meant by this, it might be fair to say that Superman.s biggest enemy is himself.  As an indestructible being by human standards with kryptonite as his only physical weakness, Kal-El is at usually at »

Why Many German Theaters Are Refusing To Show Avengers: Age Of Ultron

24 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT

U.S. moviegoers still have to wait until next Friday to see Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the latest Marvel entry has already opened in nearly 30 international markets. While most of these countries are showing the film without a hitch, Germany is encountering some trouble. 686 screens in 193 small towns, most of which are populated by less than 50,000 citizens, will not have the film screened, meaning that if you live in one of these towns, you.ll have to travel to a major city just to see Earth.s Mightiest Heroes battle the titular villain and his forces. According to Deutsche Welle, the reason these theaters have opted not to show Avengers: Age of Ultron is due to Disney raising its rental fees from 47.7 to 53 percent of ticket sales. In addition, not only has Disney cut financial contributions to advertising, but advances for 3D glasses are also gone. These protests are »

Julianne Moore's Blunt Opinion Of VOD Distribution Is Spot On

24 April 2015 12:42 PM, PDT

To paraphrase a famous song, could Video-on-Demand kill the Indie Movie Star? According to comments from Julianne Moore, she seems to think this will quickly become the case. A longtime proponent of independent films, Moore believes that the increasing presence of smaller films released exclusively for VOD is eliminating a critical component of the moviegoing experience. Speaking yesterday in front of an industry crowd for a panel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Julianne Moore, joined by the co-president of Sony Pictures Classics, Tom Bernard, addressed what she sees as insidious implications regarding the growing practice of smaller films bypassing theaters to be distributed by VOD. Essentially taking the influence away from exhibitors, she also believes it substantially mitigates the moviegoing experience intended by actors and filmmakers. Moore laments: We're always so disappointed when you hear the words 'day-and-date.' I think, 'Oh, really?' We work very hard as creators »

Gareth Edwards. name currently is associated with Star Wars, and once he delivers on his standalone spinoff movie -- Rogue One -- in 2016, it.s likely his moniker will be linked to that galaxy far, far away for the immediate future. But before he climbed aboard an X-Wing fighter and jetted off to George Lucas. universe, Edwards dabbled in monster movies . specifically the indie hit Monsters (in 2010) and the mega-smash Godzilla reboot in 2014. It was his large-scale but character-driven work on the summer-movie extravaganza that likely earned him a gig on Team Star Wars.

Watch What Man Of Steel Would Have Looked Like Without The Bleak Coloring

24 April 2015 9:05 AM, PDT

Of all of the various criticisms leveled at Zack Snyder.s Superman reboot Man of Steel, "too dark" is the one that resonates the loudest and the longest. And it.s not just the grim tone of the origin story. We.re talking hues and saturations, as the following video points out. Here.s Man of Steel, only in color: "You.re looking at what might have been," the team at VideoLab states as they introduce a color-corrected version of Zack Snyder.s Man of Steel. The narrator talks about Snyder.s decision to go with a "bleak" color grading for the admittedly action-packed visuals in the film, noting that they likely were inspired by Christopher Nolan.s freakishly successful Dark Knight movies. So they wondered what Henry Cavill.s Kal-El would look like with some of the natural colors and hues. They show what they say is footage with »

Is Ant-Man A Comedy? Paul Rudd Tries To Explain

24 April 2015 9:01 AM, PDT

As the connected cinematic universe of Marvel Studios gets set to unveil its latest crown jewel with Avengers: Age of Ultron next week, the film that will immediately follow in the continuity, Ant-Man is still in the odd position of having to explain its place in the grander scheme. This is a fact not lost on Paul Rudd, as he attempts to illustrate where the film falls, genre-wise. Sitting down with MTV News, Paul Rudd, who plays the titular size-shifting superhero of Ant-Man, would discuss the quandary of the film.s genre identity. While clearly showcasing some serious action/sci-fi elements, it.s also apparent that the film.s creative forces are actually notable talent in the world of comedy. Addressing the film.s comedic elements, Rudd states, It.s not an out-and-out comedy. I think that it.s a tough one to peg. There.s a lot of stuff »

24 April 2015 8:57 AM, PDT

Tom Cruise clings to his action-stardom with the same ferocity with which he holds onto Scientology, but he might be returning to comedy for a brief stint. Disney has reportedly been eyeing Cruise to star in one of their upcoming musical comedies, Bob the Musical, for quite some time, and now it looks like it.s closer to happening.  According to The Wrap, Cruise hasn't officially signed on for Bob the Musical, but he's circling the lead role, that of a regular guy who suffers a blow to the head. Now he can hear the inner songs of everyone.s heart, which, to his dismay, transforms his life into a musical. As the trade notes, the film has been in development since 2004.  While The Artist director Michel Hazanavicius is being courted to helm the picture, The Lego Movie co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, as well as Adam Shankman of »

Seann William Scott's 5 Favorite Movies Probably Aren't Ones You Would Guess

24 April 2015 7:11 AM, PDT

Seann Williams Scott (aka Stifler from American Pie, aka Doug Glatt from Goon) is a cinephile. You might not’ve guessed that, considering his acting choices haven’t been, shall we say, high caliber. Nonetheless, he loves movies, so picking his top five choices is as difficult as picking your favorite food — depending on his mood, the order and selection changes. Recently, he revealed his favorite films with this stipulation, but even then, they seemed a bit out-of-the-ordinary for the Stifmeister.  During a Reddit Ama on Wednesday, Scott was asked to name his top five favorite films. At the time, he said these were at the top of his head at the time of the question: 1. The Inheritance, directed by Per Fly 2. Talk to Her, directed by Pedro Almodóvar 3. Betty Blue, directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix 4. Open Hearts, Susanne Bier 5. Chopper, Andrew Dominik  Who »
