27 Sci-Fi Movie Mistakes That Only a Time-Machine Could Fix (Photos)

7 hours ago

Sci-fi movies often dazzle audiences with imaginative interpretations of the future, mind-blowing visuals, and spooky, reality-skewing twists -- but there's little to celebrate about the genre's onscreen mistakes. Or is there?

From a glaring date blunder in "Back to the Future" to a pretty blatant production error in "Blade Runner," here are a few movie mistakes from sci-fi classics.

Watch Ethan Hawke Age 30 Years on the Big Screen (Photos)

9 hours ago

Sure, we see a boy grow up on screen in Richard Linklater's new film, "Boyhood," but that can also be said of the actor who plays his father. Ethan Hawke, who turns 44 this fall, has been acting since 1985's "Explorers." We've watched him mature from shy, uncertain school boy in "Dead Poets Society" to a scruffy '90s lothario in "Reality Bites" and checked in with him at pivotal 10-year intervals in the "Before Sunrise" trilogy.

From child star to Gen X icon to Oscar nominee to fledgling horror star, see how the actor has changed over the past three decades.

Jimmy Fallon & Kelly Ripa Play Pop Quiz, Clint Dempsey Talks World Cup Injuries in the Late Night Roundup (Video)

11 hours ago

Didn't stay up for Wednesday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:

Jimmy Fallon introduced a new celebrity game to "The Tonight Show" called Pop Quiz, in which he and guest Kelly Ripa answered pop culture trivia questions while sitting on stools wearing giant, pointy dunce's caps. The catch? If one of them answers their question correctly, their opponent's chair gets raised up towards a four-gallon water balloon suspended from the ceiling; their own chair is raised if they answer their own question wrong. Announcer Steve Higgins seemed gleefully excited about the prospect of soaking Fallon and Ripa, and both contestants squirmed as their respective chairs climbed toward the rafters. "This is terrible!" complained Fallon at one point. "You're supposed to ask me stuff I know!" We won't spoil all of the questions and responses, but neither Ripa nor Fallon »

7 Kinky Comedies to Celebrate the 15th Anniversary of 'American Pie'

23 hours ago

Believe it or not (we can't), "American Pie" was released 15 years ago today.

The coming-of-age (sex) tale about a group of high school friends vowing to lose their virginity by graduation was a smash hit and spawned several sequels and imitators. It also gave a whole new meaning to enjoying a warm apple pie...

In honor of the anniversary, here are 7 of our favorite kinky comedies. »

Scarlett Johansson Kicks Butt, Takes Names in a New Nsfw 'Lucy' Clip (Video)

9 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT

Scarlett Johansson knows exactly how to escape from captivity: Opening her legs.

In this violent, Nsfw clip from Luc Besson's "Lucy," Johansson shows off just how much of a badass she is. First, she gets out of her cell by coyly spreading her legs for one of her guards. After laying him out flat, she takes his gun to confront her other captors. Let's just say: It does not go well for them. At all.

As the titular character, Johansson is a genetically-modified assassin who is able to use more than 10 percent of her brain (unlike the rest of us un-evolved apes). Think of it as a "Nikita" for this generation.

"Lucy" hits theaters on July 25.

Apes and Humans Just Can't Get Along in This Exclusive 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' (Video)

9 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT

With great power comes great responsibility -- and in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," that power rests not with humans, but the simians.

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes video, director Matt Reeves details the lay of the land in the sequel to 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes. As he explains, "It's 10 years later, and the Simian flu has wiped out most of the Earth."

The clip also introduces us to the main players in the story -- Jason Clarke's Malcolm and Keri Russell's Ellie, who want peace. "We need the apes' assistance if we're going to survive," says Jason Clarke.

Opposing them is Gary Oldman's Dreyfus, who wants to wipe out the "enemy." So, the question is, as Reeves puts it, "Can [humans and apes] exist together, or will one of them have to destroy the other?"

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" opens this Friday, »

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Simian Sequel

9 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT

In 2011, Fox unleashed "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," a big screen reboot of their beloved "Planet of the Apes" franchise that was notable in the fact that the apes, usually portrayed, up until this point, by actors in sophisticated rubber suits, would be replaced by completely computer generated creatures. (They used a process called performance capture, which helped animators get a better sense of the characters by transforming actors' movements into track-able data.)

That film turned out to be a surprise smash, both critically and commercially, although this could have been because the bar was set so astoundingly low by Tim Burton's clunky 2002 remake. And we all know that where there's a hit, there will certainly be a sequel, especially if it's one of Fox's crown jewel properties.

'Frozen Is the New Black': Prison Is No Fairy Tale For Elsa (Video)

9 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT

If you thought Litchfield Prison on "Orange Is the New Black" was a tough place, wait 'til you see Princess Prison.

That's where "Frozen" queen Elsa goes after committing the crime of freezing her kingdom. Animator Leigh Lahav has mashed up the blockbuster Disney film with Netflix's hit dramedy, "Orange Is the New Black," and the results are simply divine.

All of Disney's iconic princesses are included, from the chirpy Snow White (channeling Lorna) to a controlling Merida (is that you, Red?) to a too-close-for-comfort Mulan (Crazy Eyes?). There's even a version of Pornstache, the jerk guard - the Disney version is "Beauty and the Beast" villain Gaston!

"Wait! I don't have my tiara!" cries Elsa when her photo is taken upon intake.

"Tough s---," smirks Gaston.

Yup -- watch out for the language here.

Oh, and just wait until Elsa tries to "Let It Go"!

George R. R. Martin Has Choice Words for People Who Doubt He'll Finish 'Game of Thrones' Books

9 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT

What's more morbid than "A Song of Ice and Fire," George R. R. Martin's sprawling series of novels about murder, incest, and dragons? The people who worry about the health of Martin and speculate whether or not he'll live long enough to finish the series.

For those of you who pretend to be concerned about the health and welfare of our favorite grumpy sea captain, Martin has two words for you. Only one of them is printable on a family-friendly website.

"I find that question pretty offensive, people speculating about my death and my health... I say f**k you to those people," he said in a video interview with the newspaper Tagesanzeiger. Martin didn't just say it with his mouth, either. If you'd like to see a Gif of his response, click here. (We recommend saving it for later use, too. We've all had those kinda days, right? »

The 'Exodus' Trailer Is Unsurprisingly Epic and Visually Stunning (Video)

9 July 2014 7:45 AM, PDT

Ridley Scott is channeling Cecil B. DeMille in this first trailer for "Exodus: Gods and Kings," the Old Testament saga about Moses and Rhamses. It looks epic, if epic weren't a word rendered nearly meaningless from use by overenthusiastic bloggers and/or "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," but what else can you say about the story of Moses leading the slaves out of Egypt?

The budget for spray tanning Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton alone must have been astronomical! Edgerton is barely recognizable as a sort of 20th century Yul Brynner in his get-up, because if you want to cast someone who looks like an Egyptian king, it makes total sense to cast a white Australian dude. At least Bale could sort of pass for Semitic. (In any case, he'd be welcome at our synagogue any day.) In any case, Sigourney Weaver looks awesome and terrifying as Queen Tuya, a »

'The Mockingjay Lives' in President Snow's Latest Panem Address (Video)

9 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT

Hey, citizens of Panem! It's just a normal day in the Districts, no need to worry, and if you don't believe us, here's President Snow with a message of unity and peace. Except not, because even though Snow (Donald Sutherland) is dressed in white, flanked by Hunger Games survivors Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone), and surrounded by armed guards, one naughty tech whiz breaks through the Capitol TV signal for a special message from District 13.

Beetee (Jeffrey Wright) uses his computer mojo to let everyone know that "the mockingjay lives." That's right, our heroine Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is ready to rock, and now she has the power of District 13 behind her. Snow and his cronies better watch out.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part One" flies into theaters November 21, 2014. Stay tuned for more broadcasts from the Capitol.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Director James Gunn Promises 'Four Times' the Characters, 'Tons' of Marvel Easter Eggs

9 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT

When you think about potential directors for $100 million, comic book-originated blockbusters, chances are, the name "James Gunn" probably doesn't immediately spring to mind. Gunn is a well-respected but cultish filmmaker, who has, up until this point, handled only small to medium-sized productions, including the gooey horror throwback "Slither" and the decidedly more subversive look at comic book heroics "Super." (Gunn got his break writing for the low budget studio Troma, creators of "The Toxic Avenger," amongst other notable B-grade concoctions.) Still, Gunn seems unfazed by this leap into the big leagues.

On the set of "Guardians to the Galaxy," Gunn's really-for-real superhero epic (starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and the vocal stylings of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel), Gunn seemed calm and relaxed, luxuriating in the size and scope of the production instead of feeling daunted by it. (And considering how much hand wringing has been done about this movie, »

These 11 TV Stars Were (Shockingly) Never Nominated For an Emmy (Photos)

9 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT

Even if a show is critically acclaimed, adored by fans, and a massive ratings hit, Emmy nominations aren't always a guarantee. Such is the case for a handful of beloved TV stars.

Not only have these actors and actresses, who have most likely appeared in more than one successful program, not won an Emmy over their careers -- they haven't even been given the chance.

The 2014 Emmy nominations will be announced this Thursday, July 10 and some of these esteemed performers will have another shot at a nod this time around. We'll have to wait and see if anyone gets their due.

Who's been snubbed in the past? Check out 11 TV stars who have never been nominated for an Emmy (but probably should have been):

'Life After Beth' Posters: Zombie Aubrey Plaza and the Man Who Loves Her (Exclusive)

9 July 2014 3:30 AM, PDT

So, just how hard would it be to date a girl who's slowly turning into a zombie? According to upcoming dramedy "Life After Beth," pretty darn hard.

Of course, there's levity throughout, which makes it a little easier to ... erm .. swallow. "Life After Beth" seems to be the simple story of young couple Zach (Dane DeHaan) and Beth (Aubrey Plaza), until Beth abruptly dies. When she rises from the dead and becomes more and more of a zombie, Zach has to deal with the difficulties that come along with it. The film also stars Anna Kendrick as the "new girl" in Zach's life.

Elevation Pictures was kind enough to share the "Life After Beth" movie posters with Moviefone, so here they are in all their glory, below.

"Life After Beth" is making its Canadian premiere at Fantasia International Film Festival and will be released »

A 'Cats' Movie Musical May Finally Bring 'Memory' to the Big Screen

9 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT

More than 30 years after its Broadway debut, could "Cats" finally make its way to the big screen?

Yes, according to creator Andrew Lloyd Webber, who revealed in a recent interview that a planned revival of the stage musical had led to renewed interest in a film adaptation of the classic show. Speaking with Reuters, Webber said that the new take on "Cats" that's set to open in London's West End in December has made him think about bringing more of his hits back to the stage -- and perhaps back into movie theaters as well.

"Yes I think it's very possible that I might have a look at one or two of my shows," Lloyd Webber said of hits such as "Phantom of the Opera" and "Starlight Express." "And of course, the other thing that's happening is them being made into movies. ... There is considerable talk at last about ' »

David Letterman Walks Out on Joan Rivers During 'Nasty' CNN Interview Talk, Halle Berry Literally Rolls With Jimmy Fallon in the Late Night Roundup (Video)

9 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT

Here's a look at some of the late-night chatter you may have missed Tuesday night. This was a pretty good one, actually, from cute animals to Joan Rivers being not-so cute.

Joan Rivers said she doesn't remember the name of the CNN reporter whose interview she ditched (it's Fredricka Whitfield), but the interview was "very judgmental, very nasty, very opinionated, negative," Joan said. "It was like my wedding night." (Ba dum dum) She said Dave has interviewed her for a long time; he knows you don't sit down and say, "You look nice, but what's that smell?" Then, in classic Joan fashion, she dished it out (even if she can't take it). "It's like when you talk to the Olsen twins, you don't say things like, 'Where's your favorite place to vomit?'" (Yikes.) Joan said she was just trying to promote her book. "It's a funny book!" She also »
