This 'You've Got To Be Kidding Me' Supercut Is One For The Ages

11 hours ago

When it comes to movie one-liners, there's nothing that expresses a character's dismay or surprise like the classic "you've got to be kidding me."

Maybe it's Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street," Bruce Willis in "Die Hard," or any number of movies Adam Sandler stars in. Need a reminder?

Well, the good people at Screen Junkies have put together this supercut of Hollywood's finest reciting the classic "you've got to be kidding me." Warning, some Nsfw language ahead. But really, you've got to be kidding me if you didn't foresee an F-bomb or two to make the cut. »

2014 Summer Movie Roundup: The Best and Worst Flicks To Watch

12 hours ago

Don't worry, movie-going public. The summer flicks of 2014 have been kinda crappy so far, but there's a light at the end of the ... theatre.

With Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" release just last week, the tide is changing. Called the best movie of the year by numerous critics, "Boyhood" seems to be leading the charge of better -- and sometimes mindless -- summer movies. From "Lucy" to "Expendables 3," there's still a lot to come.

Check out our recommendations, above. »

The New 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Rap Is 100% Vanilla Ice-Free (Video)

14 hours ago

Move over Vanilla Ice: There's a new gang who's cornering the market on crime-fighting turtle-themed rap music.

In promotion of the new Michael Bay-produced "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" flick set to hit theaters this summer, studio Paramount has released a new single that will be on the movie's soundtrack and feature in the film. The track, "Shell Shocked," is performed by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, and perhaps intentionally reminds us quite a bit of "Ninja Rap," the single performed by Vanilla Ice in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

Unlike "Ninja Rap," however, "Shell Shocked" is a bit more creative with its verses and chorus, though it can't resist some cheesy lines of its own. (Literally. At one point, the phrase "We make it look easy" is rhymed with "Gimme that whole pie -- real cheesy.") The tune is a lot of fun, »

Marvel Studios' Release Schedule Is as Ambitious as It Is Exciting

15 hours ago

Superhero movies are here to stay, and Kevin Feige wants to make sure they stay interesting.

That's why the Marvel Studios head honcho wants to release one sequel to a pre-existing property and one film featuring a new character each year for the foreseeable future, an ambitious release schedule he revealed in a recent interview.

Speaking with IGN, Feige said that following the "one sequel, one new character" model would be the studio's plan going forward, beginning with "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man" in 2015.

"['Guardians of the Galaxy'] fulfilled our desire to do something different, to start producing, each year, a film that was the sequel to a pre-existing, successful franchise and do something new," Feige told IGN. "We're doing that next year with 'Age of Ultron,' with 'Ant-Man,' and hope to maybe continue that model in the coming years."

That "maybe" is a key piece of Feige's plan, though, »

Yep, Dwayne Johnson Pretty Much Revealed the DC Superhero He's Going to Play

16 hours ago

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's mysterious DC Comics collaboration just got a lot clearer thanks to a heavy-handed hint from the actor.

During a recent interview with Total Film, Johnson answered a query about the project, and tipped his hand about just who he would be playing in a soon-to-be-announced film. Johnson told Total Film that he and DC "have been talking for a couple of years now about trying to find the right character" that would be a good fit for the actor, who admitted that the process was "tricky" because "I am a certain way."

"My wiring is my wiring, my DNA is my DNA, and when I step on set and on screen, I'm aware of what I'm able to bring to a character, and so is DC, too," Johnson said. "So it's not the easiest thing."

While there were a number of roles he considered -- including Green Lantern, »

10 Totally Weird Series Finales We Can't Forget (Video)

16 hours ago

July 20th, 2014 is the 20th anniversary of a very important bizarre moment in television history. Yup -- two decades ago we said goodbye to ABC "Tgif" classic, "Dinosaurs."

You may recall that the prehistoric puppet show ended on a total "huh?" note. Translation: the finale was absolutely bonkers.

In the episode called "Changing Nature," the Sinclear family of Pangea prepares for the annual migration of the Bunch Beetles, a species of bugs that eat cider poppies. But when the Beetles don't arrive, an overgrowth of cider poppies begins, and it is discovered that Wesayso (the powerful corporation where Earl works) has created a wax fruit factory where the beetles were meant to breed. Still with me? Earl, the Sinclear family patriarch, is tasked with controlling the growth, but he sprays defoliant and ultimately destroys all plant life on the planet in the process. In an attempt to create rain for the plants' survival, »

Get Ready For More 'Louie' and 'Fargo,' FX Fans

17 hours ago

FX has renewed two series, with both "Louie" and "Fargo" scoring new seasons after recent celebrated runs.

"Louie," created by and starring stand-up comic Louis C.K., will be back for a fifth season following an experimental batch of episodes that netted him three Emmy nominations and heaps of critical praise. The break between seasons four and five will be much shorter than the 19-month hiatus he took after the end of season three, with new episodes expected to premiere sometime in spring 2015.

"'Louie''s fourth season was once again groundbreaking. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking - always thought provoking," FX CEO John Landgraf said in a statement. "The show went to narrative and cinematic places no comedy has gone before and we look forward to seeing what Louis comes up with next."

Meanwhile, freshman miniseries "Fargo" has been greenlit for a second season, and the anthology series promises an all-new group of characters, »

The 'Simpsons World' App Is Coming to Fulfill All Your Digital 'Simpsons' Needs

18 hours ago

A new app and website is aiming to turn the world into Simpsons World, and both casual and diehard fans of the series should find something to love about the new service, which promises to make all 552 existing episodes of the long-running animated series available for streaming, among other perks.

During an appearance at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, executives from Fxx explained that in addition to the network's plans to air all those episodes -- plus "The Simpsons Movie" -- in order during a mega 24/7 marathon from August 21 through September 1, they would also stream through Simpsons World, an immersive app and website that will offer an easily searchable archive of episodes, clips, and trivia from the series, as well as in-depth episode guides with quotes, behind-the-scenes info, and historical and pop cultural references from each installment.

Prepare Yourself for Thursday's 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Trailer With a Tease (Video)

18 hours ago

The first teaser trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey" is finally here, and naturally, it was revealed by Beyonce. Wait, what?

In a surprise move, Queen Bey was the first to get her hands on -- and share -- the clip, most likely because it features a sexy, slowed-down version of her 2003 hit, "Crazy in Love." The singer shared the video on her Instagram account over the weekend with the simple caption #FiftyShades.

So what to make of the 15-second clip? Obviously, that's not a lot of time to leave much of an impression, but based on the heavy breathing, seductive skirt lifting, and locking doors, we're guessing we're in for a fairly steamy feature film, not to mention full trailer, which the teaser says will drop on Thursday.

That's still more than six months from the "Fifty Shades" release date, so fans of the S&M-heavy novels by E.L. James »

Kevin Sorbo Really Wanted to Be in the New 'Hercules' Movie (Video)

19 hours ago

Poor Kevin Sorbo. The former star of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," a syndicate series Sorbo says passed "Baywatch" in terms of popularity in the '90s, just wanted a cameo in the upcoming "Hercules," starring Dwayne Johnson. But nobody wanted him to make an appearance.

While talking to Dish Network, Sorbo said, " We were sort of taken aback that they wouldn't let me in that movie. Not even to do a cameo. I think it's kind of stupid, really." Stupid you say? How far did he go to try to secure a role, you ask? Well, pretty far. "We approached the director. I don't know what his reasons are. I don't know if it was political or ego or what it is? But to not put me in for a stupid little cameo? The audience would have loved it." Well, considering the director was "Rush Hour" auteur Brett Ratner, it's »

'The Zero Theorem' Poster: Inside Christoph Waltz's Brain

19 hours ago

At this point, we should all be expecting nothing but insanity from zany director Terry Gilliam. The out-there filmmaker is the brains behind the drug-filled lunacy of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and most recently he presented the fairy-tale-like "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus."

Now Gilliam is back in the director's chair for "The Zero Theorem," which stars Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, Matt Damon, and Tilda Swinton.

A computer hacker (Waltz) whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management (Damon); their strategy is to send a teenager and lusty love interest (Thierry) to distract him.

"The Zero Theorem" is set to hit theatres in two Canadian cities for "By Popular Demand" openings:

August 1, 2014: Toronto, The Royal

August 8, 2014: Calgary, Globe Twin

John Boyega's Character and a Major 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Plot Point Leaked?

19 hours ago

First of all, when dealing with anything "Star Wars" related, it's important to take the news with a grain of salt. The biggest grain of salt you can find, probably; one that has to be moved from place to place with the assistance of a large, flatbed truck. The other thing to consider is that, if these rumors are correct, then the use of a spoiler warning is indeed necessary. So, let's put that up there too: if you don't want anything maybe, possibly, potentially ruined for you about the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII," then, please, turn back now.

Still there? Got your salt? Okay...

Badass Digest is reporting that John Boyega's character is... a stormtrooper. That's right: Boyega is going to be wearing a suit of white armor, at least at the beginning of the movie. Apparently he leaves the Empire and teams with Daisy Ridley's »

Jj Abrams's X-Wing Reveal Gives Us Great Hope for 'Star Wars: Episode VII' (Video)

20 hours ago

There's an exciting charity opportunity coming in the form of the Star Wars: Force for Change, a Unicef-affiliated movement that will allow for some lucky fans to come to the set of "Star Wars: Episode VII" and actually be an extra in the movie. While charity is cool and all, what's really been making waves are the videos that "Star Wars: Episode VII" director J.J. Abrams has been steadily releasing, giving us tantalizing tastes of the new space epic. And this newest one is a doozy.

In the video, Abrams is standing in front of some kind of structure. As he continues his speech (you can also win a chance to see the film early), the camera slowly zooms out, showing you the massive spaceship he's standing in front of: what appears to be a slightly re-designed version of the famous Rebel starship the X-Wing. That's right, y'all: this »

Robert Downey Jr. Is Hollywood's Highest Paid Actor

20 hours ago

Mondays are usually pretty lousy. But you want a little something to add some salt to the wound, well, how about finding out how much Hollywood's leading men make. That'll give you some much-needed perspective, especially when you're trying to decide whether or not you can splurge for a six-inch tuna sandwich from Subway.

At the top of the list, compiled by Forbes and put into handily readable form by The Short List, is Robert Downey Jr., who commanded a handsome $75 million last year. What makes this number even more incredible is the fact that the money was almost exclusively due to one role/movie: last May's $1 billion-grossing "Iron Man 3." Coming in second place is Dwayne Johnson who, unlike Rdj, was in six movies in the same time period. Homeboy never stops working. Coming in third, somewhat surprisingly, is Bradley Cooper, who doesn't seem to work all that often and »

In honor of this auspicious occasion -- and considering that he's pretty much an expert when it comes to voice acting -- we asked the multi-talented McCartney to share with us his five favorite animated movies.

While Disney gets the majority of McCartney's affection, we can't help but notice that he throws in one semi-animated movie in which he played a major part.

Well done, Jesse. Well done.

15 Things We Learned At the Fox TCA: Scoop on 'Gotham,' 'The Simpsons,' and More

21 hours ago

Fox held their Television Critics Association presentation this Sunday and we were right there to get all the latest details on the network's fall lineup. We already filled you in on what NBC and ABC had to offer this past week, but let's get down to business with new news from shows like "Gotham," "Sleepy Hollow," "The Mindy Project," and more.

1. Will this be "Bones" final season?

Fox CEO Peter Rice has high hopes for the long-running procedural: "I hope it's not the last year." He also admitted it's Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz (um, the show's leads) last year contractually and they haven't had that conversation yet.

2. "24" may live another day.

Rice loved this year's season and said the show "has many more stories to tell." So, more Jack Bauer then?

3. The new Batman prequel, "Gotham," will stay true to the comics. In a way.

Check Out Four New Colorful, Ass-Kicking 'Expendables 3' Comic-Con Posters (Photos)

22 hours ago

Every time an "Expendables" movie comes out, my heart gets flooded with bone-crunching glee. As a fan of '80s action movies, and the stars who anchored those movies using little more than raw muscle, some well placed sneers, and an itchy trigger finger, "The Expendables" franchise is the gift that keeps on giving. Each new installment seemingly resurrects the career of some bygone superstar, while offering plenty in the way of brand new thrills. And "Expendables 3," which has maybe the most exciting behind-the-scenes team, is no different. So we are thrilled to debut four new posters from the upcoming sequel (below). These are so hot they might as well be doused in kerosene and attached to stick of dynamite!

The four Warhol-esque character posters, rendered in bright eye-catching colors (just like a festive incendiary device), feature some of the sequel's new characters -- there's Mel Gibson as the evil »

Box Office: Why Did Cameron Diaz's 'Sex Tape' Tank?

23 hours ago

Wow, that's embarrassing. Not the humiliation suffered by the protagonists of the Cameron Diaz-Jason Segel farce "Sex Tape," but the movie's box office grosses.

Pundits expected the reunion of the "Bad Teacher" leads and director Jake Kasdan to open with around $23 million this weekend. Instead, it debuted with a weak estimated $15.0 million, settling for fourth place, behind the returning victor "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and two more new releases.

What went wrong with the seemingly surefire comedy? You can chalk a lot of its problems up to bad timing, but there were other issues, too. For instance:

Who was it for? That anachronistic title offers a clue. After all, nobody makes a sex "tape" anymore, including Diaz and Segel's characters; the joke is that the couple's risqué home movie was shot digitally and leaked via the Cloud. So people too young to remember videocassettes may »
