Super Bowl TV Spots for Fast And Furious 6, Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Lone Ranger, and More

3 February 2013 2:05 PM, PST

Tonight during Super Bowl Xlvii, new ads ran for Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Lone Ranger, Oz the Great and Powerful, World War Z, Snitch, 21 & Over, and Fast & Furious 6.  If you missed the big game, aren't planning to watch the game, or just want to watch the ads again, we've got them all in one handy article.  Now that all the ads have been posted, I've added my thoughts. Hit the jump to check out the TV spots. Fast & Furious 6 (May 24th) This was a damn good spot, and I say that as someone who's not a big fan of the Fast & Furious series.  It may have taken six movies, but this could be the one that definitively lays down the identity of the series.  Some may point to Fast Five as already having done that, but Fast Five feels like trying to shove the Fast & Furious vibe inside Ocean's Eleven. »

Hollywood! Adapt This: The Many Loves Of Dobie Gillis

3 February 2013 1:09 PM, PST

Last week on Hollywood! Adapt This! we brought up the idea of the global phenomenon of Pokémon for a live-action feature reboot.  This week we'll go way more obscure and talk about a series of short stories from the early 1950s that were previously adapted into one feature film and a television series in the early 1960s.  At the center of the comedic stories about failed relationships was a teenage boy and his beatnik friend.  Over half a century later, it's time for a fresh look at this property.  Hit the jump to find out more. Hollywood! Adapt this: The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Not everything on Hollywood! Adapt This! needs to be a feature adaptation.  In this case, we'll make an argument for a fresh take on the Dobie Gillis TV series, either as a contemporary re-imagining or a retro sitcom set in the 50s.

10 Superhero Noir Posters Featuring Batman, Hulk, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Iron Man, Thor and More

3 February 2013 10:09 AM, PST

It's tough making one cool superhero poster.  But making ten of them, each one is as cool as the last, that's almost impossible.  But that's what Marko Manev has managed to do with his new black and white superhero noir posters featuring Batman, Hulk, Captain America, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Thor, Iron Man, Superman, Dr. Manhattan, and Wolverine.  As you'll see after the jump, every poster captures an iconic scene for the superhero featured.  And while all of them are extremely well done, I think the Silver Surfer is my favorite.   Let me know which is your favorite in the comment section. In addition, Manev said that he'll be selling these posters at some point in the future, so you might want to follow him on Twitter if you're interested.  He also has a Facebook page. Finally, a big thank you to Manev for letting me feature the posters on Collider. »

3 February 2013 9:04 AM, PST

Last night, Gallery1988 and Hello Giggles premiered "Young Adult," which featured 60 female artists taking on their favorite teen-focused literature of the ’80s and ’90s (like Nancy Drew and Sweet Valley High).  The Hello Giggles co-creators, producer Sophia Rossi, actress Zoey Deschanel and writer Molly “Molls” McAleer, came up with the show’s theme and helped put together the show.  Shortly before the doors opened, I walked around the gallery and took over pictures of everything on display.  Some of the artists included Bec Winnel, Shana Bilbrey, Kiersten Essenpreis, Danielle Buerli, Kristin Tercek , Jessica Deahl, Tracie Ching, Lorena Alvarez Gomez, Shannon Finch, Misha, and many more.  Hit the jump for the images.

Girls Recap: “It’s a Shame About Ray”

3 February 2013 9:04 AM, PST

After last week's shambolic offering, I was still looking forward to this week's Girls largely because of the title, "It's a Shame About Ray."  "At last!" I thought, "less Hannah and more Shoshanna!"  It was blessedly true, with a lot more Jessa thrown in as well, and a dash of Marnie.  As irritating as the show can be, when it sticks to a theme (in this case, the idea or question of financially parasitic relationships) and shows real emotion (which came from a variety of sources -- basically from everyone except Hannah), Girls finally lives up to the hype.  Hit the jump for more on why "when I'm 30 I'm going to look like I'm 50, and I'm going to be fat, really fat like Nico, because I will be full of experiences!" The show's first season kicked off from the catalyst of Hannah being cut off from her parents' money, and »

Michael Bay Says They’ve “Redesigned Everything” for Transformers 4

3 February 2013 8:52 AM, PST

Director Michael Bay’s next film is a bit of a departure from the filmmaker’s recent mega-budget fare, as we’ll see him return to his Bad Boys sensibilities on the $20 million dark comedy Pain and Gain.  Explosions fans needn't worry, though, as Bay is currently prepping his return to the Transformers franchise with the upcoming Transformers 4.  He roped in his Pain and Gain star Mark Wahlberg to front an all-new cast, and he recently confirmed that this will be the start of a new trilogy.  Now Bay has talked a bit more about the film, saying he’s going to be “starting off smaller” with Transformers 4 and teasing a complete redesign.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say. Speaking with Forbes, Bay talked a bit about his “fresh” approach to the franchise: “We’re going to start off smaller. There’s a brand new cast. »

Ben Affleck Wins Directors Guild Award for Argo; Rian Johnson and Lena Dunham Win TV Awards for Breaking Bad and Girls

3 February 2013 8:26 AM, PST

The freight train that is Argo kept on trucking last night.  Though the film’s Best Picture Oscar chances were all but dashed when Ben Affleck was snubbed for Best Director (it’s incredibly rare for a movie to win Best Picture without a Best Director nomination), the film picked up the top awards at two major guilds—the Screen Actors Guild and the Producers Guild.  Now two becomes three, as the Directors Guild Awards were held last night and Argo pulled off the hat trick by landing Affleck the Best Director DGA trophy. There is one major precedent that everyone keeps pointing towards with regards to Argo: 1995’s Apollo 13.  That film won the PGA, DGA, and SAG awards, only to find Ron Howard left out of the Best Director Oscar nominations and it ultimately lost Best Picture to Braveheart.  Is Argo in the same boat as Apollo 13 »

Johnny Depp to Play Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass; Barry Levinson to Direct

3 February 2013 8:04 AM, PST

Johnny Depp is attached to play notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in Black MassBarry Levinson will direct with a scheduled May start date.  Cross Creek bought the rights to the 2001 book Black Mass, but Mark Mallouk had to write a new ending when Bulger was captured in June 2011 after spending more than a decade on the FBI Ten Most Wanted List.  Bulger featured heavily in the South Boston organized crime scene in the 70s and 80s, but maintained a reputation as a "modern-day Robin Hood" among some of the locals.  The synopsis makes it clear this will be a sympathetic portrait: Black Mass tells the true story of Whitey Bulger, the brother of a state senator and the most infamous violent criminal in the history of South Boston, who became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his turf.  However, after the Feds closed in on their targets, »

3 February 2013 6:21 AM, PST

Based on true events, Compliance is a startling and stark film about a prank caller (Pat Healy) who convinces a fast food restaurant manager (Ann Dowd) to interrogate an innocent young employee (Dreama Walker), in a way that changes all of their lives, forever.  Recognized for her work in the small indie drama, Ann Dowd was honored with a Virtuosos Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (Sbiff).  Collider was there to cover and attend the event, and we’ve compiled the highlights of what the actress had to say, both on the press line and during the Q&A. While there, Ann Dowd talked about how gratifying the response to the film has been, along with her work in it, why she felt she could bring something to this character, what it was like to work with co-star Pat Healy entirely over the phone, how protective she felt of Dreama Walker, »

3 February 2013 5:22 AM, PST

Ben Lee: Catch My Disease (which can currently be viewed on Hulu) is an intimate and playful portrait of the Australian singer-songwriter who has been a musician since his early adolescence.  It illustrates his rise to pop stardom and the media scrutiny and issues of celebrity that come with it, as well as the spiritual journey that changed his life, while giving insight from Claire Danes, Jason Schwartzman, Michelle Williams, Mike D, Zooey Deschanel and Winona Ryder. During this exclusive interview with Collider, Ben Lee talked about making a documentary that is so personal, how the whole thing came about, how surprised he was about just how much his spiritual journey affected and changed him, what makes a great live performance for him, the most definable moments of his career, and the musical he recently wrote, based on a book by Tom Robbins, called B is for Beer.  Check out »

2 February 2013 9:29 PM, PST

Omar Sy is an award-winning French actor, comedian, comic writer and television personality, who is already starting to make a name for himself in America.  Honored for his performance as Driss, a young man from the projects who becomes a caretaker for a quadriplegic in The Intouchables, Sy was presented with a Virtuosos Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (Sbiff).  Collider was there to cover and attend the event, and we’ve compiled the highlights of what the actor had to say during the Q&A. While there, Omar Sy talked about why directors Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache had faith in his abilities when he didn’t even consider himself an actor, getting bigger roles each of the four times they’ve collaborated together, working with co-star François Cluzet, who he beat out for the César Award for Best Actor, and how he’s ready to work in English, »

First Poster for Fast And Furious 6

2 February 2013 6:05 PM, PST

Over the past few months, we've heard a number of different titles (Fast Six, Furious 6) for the 6th installment in the Fast and Furious franchise.  But thanks to the studio releasing the first poster, we know it's officially called Fast and Furious 6.  While I understand the logic in that title, I think Furious 6 sounds a lot cooler. As we learned the other day when we posted the synopsis, the new film has Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) trying to stop a group of mercenary drivers led by an unnamed mastermind (Luke Evans) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez).  Hobbs recruits Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew to help bring down the criminal outfit, and in exchange will provide pardons for the Rio heist.  The film also stars Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky, and Gina Carano.  Hit the jump to check out the first poster »

Top 5: Oz The Great And Powerful Set Visit, Duncan Jones Directing World Of Warcraft, Jack The Giant Slayer Set Visit, X-men: Days Of Future Past, Sundance 2013 Wrap-Up

2 February 2013 3:07 PM, PST

Prior to last Sunday, Zero Dark Thirty was my favorite pic of 2012 by a considerable margin. However, after my matinee viewing of Silver Linings Playbook, that margin has been replaced with a draw. Whereas Zero provided me with a tension that left me on the verge of breathless at moments, Playbook's spectacular performances and head-on portrayal of mental illness and our ability to help each other cope/prevail proved not only hugely entertaining but also quite cathartic. My 2012 movie scorecard aside, this week's Top 5 includes our set visit coverage of Oz the Great and Powerful, Duncan Jones being tapped to helm the World of Warcraft movie, more visit coverage from the set of Jack the Giant Slayer, a slew of news from X-Men: Days of Future Past, and a Sundance 2013 wrap-up. A brief recap and link to each of the above is promised after the jump. 1. Oz The Great And Powerful »

Sung Kang and Sarah Shahi Talk Bullet To The Head and Furious 6

2 February 2013 12:20 PM, PST

In this weekend's Bullet To The Head, Sarah Shahi (Fairly Legal) and Sung Kang (The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift) co-star opposite Sylvester Stallone as his daughter and ‘partner’ respectively, the twosome forming an unlikely romance much to Sly’s chagrin. After Taylor Kwon’s (Kang) corrupt police partner is murdered, he teams up with the betrayed hit-man responsible (Stallone) to uncover who put the hit on in the first place. As the duo get closer to those responsible (Christian Slater, Jason Momoa, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), the villains attempt to get some leverage of their own turning their sights onto Sly’s estranged daughter Lisa (Shahi). In the following interview with Shahi and Kang, the twosome talk working opposite Stallone, what drew them to the project and breaking conventional stereotypes. In addition, Kang discusses his ‘tragic’ Fast and Furious character Han and what to expect in Furious Six. For the full interview, »

2 February 2013 10:24 AM, PST

The Cinemax action series Banshee tells the story of Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa.  It’s the perfect cover for him to try to win back the love of his life (Ivana Milicevic) and hide out from the dangerous gangster (Ben Cross) that they both betrayed years earlier, while attempting not to get into too much more trouble. During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actress Ivana Milicevic talked about how she got involved with this show, how much she enjoys getting to play the two sides of her character, what it’s like doing the fairly graphic but always story-driven sex scenes, working with co-stars Antony Starr and Rus Blackwell, what’s to come for her character, and her favorite episodes this season.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

Friday Box Office: Warm Bodies Takes First with $8.1 Million; Bullet To The Head Misfires

2 February 2013 9:32 AM, PST

Conventional wisdom tells us that people don’t go to the movies on Super Bowl weekend. Of course, that wisdom has been tested by the big debuts of Hannah Montana: The Best of Both Worlds, Taken and Dear John, in recent years. In 2013, Warm Bodies should become the latest title to buck Super Bowl convention. The teen-zombie romance earned an estimated $8.1 million from 3,009 locations on Friday, including $600,000 from its midnight premieres. That puts the film on track for a three-day total of $20 million instead of the low-to-mid teens that had been projected. Projections also failed to gauge the future of the frame’s second wide release: Bullet to the Head. The Sylvester Stallone action movie was expected to earn between $6 and $7 million this weekend - in the manner of Schwarzenegger’s recent The Last Stand. Instead, Bullet to the Head took in an estimated $1.7 million from 2,404 locations on Friday, »
