Watch a new clip from James Franco's 'The Sound and the Fury'

20 minutes ago

Thanks to the difficulty of William Faulkner’s stream-of-consciousness writing, his novel The Sound and the Fury has only seen one major film adaptation, released in 1959. That is, until James Franco decided to take a stab at the perennial high school English-class favorite. Franco’s adaptation, which he directed and also stars in, has a new clip to show fans of Franco and the novel what’s in store.

Debuted by Deadline, the clip is notably Franco-free; it depicts Scott Haze’s Jason Compson IV reprimanding his niece Miss Quentin (Joey King) for her appearance. Their servant Dilsey (Loretta Devine »

'Magic Mike XXL' begins filming, non-director Steven Soderbergh tweets

2 hours ago

For a man who’s retired from directing movies, Steven Soderbergh keeps finding increasingly creative ways to circumvent his vow. Behind the Candelabra was technically a TV movie (though it played in theaters in many foreign territories) and The Knick is a Cinemax TV series, but clearly, he has no intention to stop working.

The Oscar winner recently tweeted an image of a clapperboard indicating that production had begun on the Magic Mike sequel, a project he handed off to his long-time collaborator Gregory Jacobs. But Soderbergh hasn’t exactly stepped off the stage—his pseudonym as a cinematographer is Peter Andrews. »

The Toronto Film Festival accidentally oversold its Bill Murray day

2 hours ago

Thanks to the Toronto International Film Festival, Sept. 5 will no longer just be known as, well, Sept. 5. Instead, the festival has declared something of a Bill Murray holiday, during which it will premiere Murray’s new film, St. Vincent, following free screenings of Stripes, Groundhog Day, and Ghostbusters. Only, there’s one tiny problem: The festival oversold the world premiere of St. Vincent.

Due to what the festival has called a “computer error,” it oversold both the premiere of St. Vincent and the world premiere of The Drop starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini.

“Unfortunately, a computer error occurred while »

Sam Claflin chugs a horrifying cocktail in new 'Riot Club' clip

3 hours ago

Hazing is part of any secret college society experience, and it looks like the titular group of Universal PicturesThe Riot Club is no exception in a new clip released from the film.

In the clip—which, fair warning, may churn a few stomachs—a new initiate of the Riot Club is kidnapped from a quiet study session in the library by a group of club members. Blindfolded and surrounded by the gleeful Rioters, the group forces Alistair Ryle, played by The Hunger GamesSam Claflin, to both gulp down a glass of wine filled with a mixture of bodily fluids and maggots, »

See Jon Cryer mix love and murder in 'Hit by Lightning' trailer

3 hours ago

Jon Cryer is a two-time Emmy winner who now pulls down $620,000 per episode after 12 seasons on TV’s Two and a Half Men. But to another generation, he’s Duckie, the Bff Molly Ringwald should’ve ended up with at the end of Pretty in Pink.

Fair or unfair, those two characters, combined, make it reasonably easy to believe Cryer as a middle-aged man who’s yet to meet his soulmate. In Hit by Lightning, he plays a sad-sack restaurant employee who falls head over heels in love with a beauty (Stephanie Szostak) he meets via an online dating service. »

Kevin Costner on 'Black and White,' race, and great movie speeches

4 hours ago

When we first meet Kevin Costner’s character, Elliott, in Black and White, he’s alone at the hospital after a car accident has killed his wife (Jennifer Ehle). Shattered, he finally says, “I feel so sh-tty,” before going home and crawling inside a bottle of booze. The themes of loss and alcohol will evoke memories of the last time Costner worked with writer/director Mike Binder, 2005’s The Upside of Anger. In that film, Costner got to play a lighter soul, with Joan Allen’s abandoned wife shouldering the darker demons. In Black and White, however, Costner is put through the emotional wringer, »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' defends its box-office roost over Labor Day weekend

1 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT

Labor Day weekend, 2014: that time when a movie featuring an anthropomorphized raccoon and a talking tree became the highest-grossing release of the year. In its fifth weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy continued to stay in pole position thanks to weak holiday competition, taking in an estimated total of $22.2 million over the four days ($16.5 million for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and bringing its grand domestic take up to $280.5 million. That number would have only made it the fourth highest-grossing movie at the same time in 2013 (after Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, and Man of Steel), but in a relatively slow year for blockbusters, »

Internet grinds to halt as nude pics of Jennifer Lawrence, others surface

1 September 2014 9:54 AM, PDT

While the rest of the nation enjoyed a long, leisurely Labor Day weekend, basking in those fleeting final days of summer, life on the Internet ground to a halt because: Jennifer Lawrence naked. The Oscar-winning actress was the highest profile target of a massive hacking campaign, which the Telegraph reports accessed her Apple iCloud account, where pics from her phone were presumably backed up. (Somewhere, the producers of Sex Tape are shouting, “We tried to warn you! The public ignored us!”)

Various reports say nearly 60 photos of Lawrence in various stages of undress circulated after a hacker posted them to 4chan, »

'Draft Day' deleted scene: See how Jennifer Garner's football exec made it in a man's world

1 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT

In a case of life imitating art, the Cleveland Browns made some ambitious draft-day trades in May to land a college football star who they hope can turn around their franchise. Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel will be holding a clipboard when the real Browns open their season next week, but he’s already been anointed a savior by a city that hasn’t won an NFL title since 1964. In Ivan Reitman’s movie, Draft Day, Kevin Costner stars as Sonny Weaver Jr., the Browns’ embattled general manager faced with a make-or-break draft to reverse the team’s losing fortunes and save his job. »
