Chris Pratt Poses with Velociraptor in 'Jurassic World' Holiday Greeting

8 hours ago

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the cast of season three of "True Detective."

In it, Chris Pratt plays an ethical detective who is partnered with a raptor, whose ruthless interrogation methods grate on his sense of honour.

He doesn't like, for example, that the raptor tends to question people by biting and clawing at them.

Ok, not really.

Seriously though, "Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow posted an awesome picture of Pratt and a prehistoric co-star on his Twitter account Wednesday.

Happy Holidays from the editing room. Do not try this at home. pic.twitter.com/cL755EHExw

It only has us more excited to see what is certain to be a major summer blockbuster.

The movie hits theatres on June 12, 2015.

Here's Chris Pratt - and Some Raptors - in 'Jurassic World' (Photo)

8 hours ago

After the epic, eye-popping first trailer for "Jurassic World" dropped last month, fans have been chomping at the bit for more intel about the sure-to-be-awesome flick. Now, Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new photo from the film, as well as a handful of details about the plot and characters.

In the image (which you can check out below), we see Chris Pratt's character, a dinosaur researcher named Owen, riding a motorcycle. Oh yeah, and he's being chased by a pack of raptors, too.

While director Colin Trevorrow didn't drop any details about just what is happening in that specific scene, he did tell EW that moviegoers can expect to see lots more chasing in the hotly-anticipated fourth installment of the "Jurassic Park" series.

"There are dinosaurs and there's the other-there's this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them," Trevorrow told EW of the hybrid »

'The Walking Dead' and 'Pretty Little Liars' Dominated Twitter in 2014

9 hours ago

Riding some of its highest ratings ever, "The Walking Dead" has dominated another medium, too.

According to Nielsen research, the AMC zombie drama was the most talked about show on Twitter in 2014, racking up an average of 576,000 tweets per episode throughout the latter half of its fourth season and the first half of its fifth season. It also accrued an average audience -- the number of individual people viewing tweets about the show on the social media platform -- of 4.934 million distinct Twitter accounts per episode.

And while "The Bachelor" had a higher per-episode average number of people viewing its tweets in 2014, it still fell behind ABC Family teen mystery series "Pretty Little Liars" when it came to mentions. Nielsen's numbers reveal that the veteran ABC dating show scored an average of 3.842 million Twitter audience members per episode, but only generated an average of 215,000 tweets per episode; "Pll," meanwhile, more than doubled that number, »

Luke Evans on 'The Hobbit,' Deleted Scenes, and Dracula's Next Move (Exclusive)

9 hours ago

In movies as furiously energetic and visually embellished as Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies," it's hard to single out a specific performance or actor, who could be deemed for future super-stardom. But that's exactly what has happened with Luke Evans, the charismatic British actor who essays the character of Bard the Bowman in Jackson's "Hobbit" trilogy, which finally wraps up with "Battle of the Five Armies," a film that kicks off with a thrilling sequence pitting Evans and his son against the horrible dragon Smaug (voiced deliciously by Benedict Cumberbatch).

Evans is a lovely guy, and we got a chance to sit down with him in London, during the final big press push for the final movie of the trilogy. We talk about what it was like finally seeing the sequence with Smaug, what he'd like to see in the extended edition of the movie, »

'American Sniper' Trailer: Bradley Cooper Is Ready to Come Home (Video)

10 hours ago

The new trailer for "American Sniper," based on Navy Seal Chris Kelly's memoir, focuses on Kelly's (Bradley Cooper) internal struggle over his roles as both the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history and a husband and father.

With over 160 kills to his name, Kelly must have seen and done things he's not proud of. But when prodded on that fact, he responds that he's at peace with his actions.

"I'm willing to meet my creator and answer for every shot that I took," he says, while the trailer cuts to a heart-wrenching scene in which he softly pleads with a young boy not to pick up an assault weapon.

That moment represents the duality of Kelly's life: grappling with the difficult decisions and actions required of his position, while also juggling his sanity and his home life.

"American Sniper," directed by Clint Eastwood, is due in theaters on Christmas Day. »

Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale Talk 'Annie,' Karaoke, and Playing the Lovable Jerk (Exclusive)

10 hours ago

Sometimes you've just got to tap into your inner jerk.

All right, all right, maybe not in real life, but Bobby Cannavale certainly gets in touch with his bad side in "Annie." Mr. Moviefone sat down with Mr. Cannavale, and the actor admitted he was excited to craft a bad guy that audiences couldn't help but love. Castmate Cameron Diaz had a few things to say about playing another cruel character, Ms. Hannigan, though it didn't take long for "Something About Mary" -- and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" -- to wiggle their way into the conversation.

"Annie" dances its way into theaters Friday, December 19.

The 10 Worst Movies of 2014

11 hours ago

This time of year is full of critics' top ten lists and award nominations, but there's a flip side to this glittering coin. That's right folks -- we're here to talk about the very worst movies of the year, the ones that left us standing by the exit, patiently tapping our toes because we had a train to catch; the films that made us want to hurl our 3D glasses at the screen; the one that made us contemplate whether God was singling us out for divine punishment (and, if so, what we had done to deserve this).

These are the worst of the worst -- the movies that should still be sitting on a shelf somewhere, collecting dust, to be quietly released on home video or VOD, or that we should have never had to actually visit a theater to endure.

Above, in no particular order, are the worst »

12 hours ago

Update: Paramount Pictures, which owns the rights to "Team America: World Police," has cancelled planned screenings of the film, which was to be shown in place of Sony's now-cancelled release of comedy "The Interview." (Our original report is below.)

North Korea Was Definitely Behind the Sony Hack, Says the U.S. Government

12 hours ago

After weeks of (well-founded) speculation that North Korea was responsible for the hack that's currently crippling Sony studios, the United States government has confirmed that it believes the country is indeed behind the act.

U.S. officials told NBC News that "the hacking attack originated outside North Korea, but they believe the individuals behind it were acting on orders from the North Koreans." NBC also reports that U.S. government sources revealed that they "have found linkage to the North Korean government," though the sources declined to reveal what actions the U.S. government is weighing in retaliation.

Over the past few weeks, Sony has been the victim of an ongoing leak of sensitive information (including employees' Social Security numbers, passwords, and personal emails) and property (including multiple unreleased films such as the upcoming "Annie" remake). It is believed that the hack was in retaliation for "The Interview," the comedy »

The 46 Best Movies of 2014

13 hours ago

Ah, 2014. What a weird, strange trip you've been.

Looking back on the year, it wasn't a particularly memorable one; there were a lot of "good" movies but very few "great" ones. The ones that were great, though, well, they were just spectacular. These are movies like "Boyhood" and "Grand Budapest Hotel" and " Gone Girl" and "A Most Violent Year," films that will be re-watched and enjoyed and meticulously studied for years to come.

It's also in the interest of thoroughness that we add to our already-swelling compendium of the year's very best movies, we've got nearly fifty now, and if you want a list of even more films to check out, please consult our "best movies you didn't see" piece as well. You can also check out our list of the worst movies of 2014, if you're into that sort of thing.

In short: get watching. And we'll see you in »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Episode 10, 'Orphans'

14 hours ago

There are only a few episodes left in this season, which means it's time to start tying up loose ends. That means that character are dying off with a quickness, and, perhaps more interestingly, those shared universe theories are becoming much less, well, theoretical. This episode was heavy on the melodrama, with plenty of flashbacks and revelations about one of the more beloved freaks, Pepper.

Family Ties

Salty, one of the more underused characters in the show, shuffled off this mortal coil since the last episode, and Pepper is in deep mourning. It's flashback time! Elsa recounts to Stanley her own humble carny beginnings, and how she found Pepper in an asylum after Pepper's sister abandoned her there. Eventually, Elsa found Salty as a mate for Pepper; although Pepper is the light of Elsa's life, a truly innocent, beautiful soul, Salty was "so stupid," Elsa sighs, so she leaves Stanley »

Benedict Cumberbatch Talks 'The Imitation Game' and His Horrible Math Skills

15 hours ago

No one can argue that Benedict Cumberbatch is currently on top of the world. He's well-respected, admired, and there are literal legions of women who would throw himself at his feet.

Despite all the fame and attention, Cumberbatch manages to invest himself fully into his movies, including his latest role as noted scientist/math genius Alan Turing in "The Imitation Game." Playing a real-life person is a challenge he's familiar with (he played Julian Assange in last year's "The Fifth Estate"), and by all appearances he's mastered the art.

Moviefone Canada spoke with Cumberbatch at the Toronto Film Festival, where we chatted about the difficulty of taking on Turing, his propensity for tackling real-life roles, and his abysmal math skills.

15 Movie Mistakes From Your Favorite Sequels

16 hours ago

Let's be honest: sequels rarely live up to their popular predecessors.

With a boatload of cash on the line, who can blame classics such as "Home Alone" and "Superman" for spawning perfunctory follow-ups? Still, that's no excuse for some obvious mistakes. While not every gaffe is cringe-worthy, the "High School Musical 2" goof is especially painful and really makes you wonder who wasn't paying attention.

Here are 15 "oops" moments from blockbuster sequels. As usual, all photos are courtesy of MovieMistakes.

Best of Late Night TV: Jimmy Kimmel's Proposal and Lady Gaga's Advice From A Stripper (Video)

20 hours ago

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Is anyone else wondering how Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett started working together? We're right there with you. This unlikely duo hit up "The Tonight Show" for a quick performance, and then Lady Gaga explained how a stripper inspired her to get old school with her act. Priceless!

The Sony hack has taken a turn for the completely crazy, but David Letterman still has a sense of humor about the situation, and decided to read some hacked emails on "Late Show." There's an jingle, there are a few LOLs, and there are a bunch of completely hilarious (fake!) notes like "Nicholas Cage says the script's terrible and he's in. »

Andy Serkis Teases Some Details About 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

17 December 2014 7:45 AM, PST

Director J.J. Abrams is keeping a very tight lid on "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens," but fans have gotten some hints over the last year. And now Andy Serkis is revealing even more clues.

The actor dishes some details to Entertainment Weekly in a game of "true or false." Serkis didn't say very much, but he did drop some nuggets to chew on.

For instance, his voice - which narrates the first trailer and sounds a lot like Benedict Cumberbatch - is entirely his voice. "There's no digital manipulation. That's just me," he said.

He also was able to confirm that he only plays one character (there were rumors he might play multiple roles) and that he has "been through some stuff."

Serkis got a laugh out of debunking another rumor, that he leads a "group of unbelievably athletic and acrobatic motion capture characters."

Whether his character is a hero or villain, »

'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Review: Lynchpin Movie Hits the Accelerator

17 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST

I remember back in 2001 sitting in a movie theatre to watch the first "Lord of the Rings" film, "The Fellowship of the Ring." I really didn't think it could be done, this telling of Tolkien's grand vision on screen. Sure, Peter Jackson had done cool things with genre ("The Frighteners," for example), and I'm a big fan of his "Heavenly Creatures," but this whole thing seemed too big, too dense, too brash to do.

About 10 minutes in, as the prologue slams to a close and we're thrust from the ancient battlefields right into the wondrous vision of the woods surrounding Hobbiton, it all felt so right. There were changes to the source material, but what was clear was the translation to the big screen was being done by a bunch of truly savvy filmmakers. This, after all, was no less a transmogrification than was done by Tolkien when he »

10 Great TV Shows You Probably Missed in 2014

17 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST

2014's fall TV line-up delivered some seriously stunning performances, not to mention a few truly incredible new shows -- but the only problem? There was such an abundance of critically acclaimed television that our DVRs could barely keep up. If you missed out on more quality viewing than is healthy, don't sweat it. Moviefone's rounded up a list of hits that you may have missed in 2014 (too busy binging "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix, probably), which means you officially have a plan for winter break!

"The Affair"

If the multiple Golden Globe nominations aren't enough to inspire you to watch "The Affair," you might be interested to know that it stars none other than Joshua Jackson, aka Pacey from "Dawson's Creek." "The Affair" -- which follows the romantic dalliances of a married man and woman in Montauk -- is one part mysterious and one million parts evocative, but the show is »
