See photos from upcoming high-school comedy 'The Outskirts'

4 hours ago

When two best friends find themselves fed up with their high school’s resident bullies, they do what anyone would do: stage a revolution.

Victoria Justice and The Middle’s Eden Sher play two outcasts in The Outskirts, a film about what happens when a high school’s uncool kids overthrow the popular crew, led by the Blair Waldorf-like Whitney (Claudia Lee). There’s drama, there’s humor. And, as with any good teen movie, there are tears.

“What made me want to direct this movie more than just being really excited to see it when it came out is »

4 hours ago

Love is complicated, especially when you haven’t really grown up yet. In The Longest Week, Jason Bateman plays 40-year-old Conrad Valmont, who lives at home and is heir to a vast fortune. When he’s cut off from said fortune, he moves in with his best friend Dylan (Billy Crudup) and promptly decides to romance Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice (Olivia Wilde) on the sly.

The trailer seems to hint that the film may be fully aware of just how “first world problems” its premise is. Meanwhile, Jason Bateman plays yet another affably self-interested jerk—one might say that his »

Cameras are storytellers in Michael Apted's 'Bending the Light' trailer

5 hours ago

In order to examine the art of photography, you have to start by looking at the glass. “It’s the heart of the camera,” explains one lens-maker in director Michael Apted’s (The Up Series) latest documentary Bending the Light.

Apted’s film gives audiences a rare glimpse inside a premier Japanese lens factory and features interviews with celebrated photographers and cinematographers like Stephen Goldblatt, Greg Gorman, Richard Barnes, and Laura El-Tantawy in his study of the relationship between the artist and their tools.

Bird experts worry that 'Star Wars' shoot is interrupting breeding

9 hours ago

Denizens of the Star Wars galaxy aren’t the best stewards of their environment. The empire once blew up an entire planet (sorry, Alderaan); there’s fan speculation about the fate of the Ewok ecosystem after the second Death Star explodes during Return of the Jedi. (Spoiler: It doesn’t look good.) And let’s not even consider the emissions impact of pod racing.

But as J.J. Abrams and crew prepare to shoot episode VII, it looks like the damage might come closer to home. The Guardian reports that Irish wildlife conservationists have raised concerns about plans to shoot the »

Watch Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan preview their new rom-com 'What If'

9 hours ago

There are many things that can get in the way of true love, but one surefire way to put an end to a relationship before it even starts is, well, by already being involved in another relationship. That’s the idea behind What If, the upcoming romantic comedy from writer Elan Mastai and director Michael Dowse.

What If stars Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe as Chantry and Wallace, two people who seem more or less destined to fall in love—if only it weren’t for Chantry’s boyfriend. So now that the couple is forced into friendship, where will their journey take them? »

John C. Reilly shows Letterman a seriously old-school 'Guardians' clip

9 hours ago

It looks like Marvel’s going to be quoting some old fashioned sci-fi flicks in its latest release.

John C. Reilly plays Corpsman Dey, a law-enforcement official, in the soon-to-be-released Guardians of the Galaxy. And it’s his arrests of the film’s main characters that leads them to assemble into the titular “Guardians” squad. He stopped by the Late Show Monday night to give David Letterman a glimpse at life on the job.

Reilly discussed the difficulties of acting in front of a green screen and keeping up with Glenn Close (who plays Nova Prime) even while filming jet-lagged. »

28 July 2014 12:51 PM, PDT

Miles Scott, the 5-year-old leukemia survivor better known as Batkid, won over the hearts of San Francisco (and pretty much the entire internet) when his Make-a-Wish request was to be Batman for a day. And in November, the city of San Francisco came together to make that happen, with thousands of people lining the streets to simulate Gotham City.

Now, filmmaker Dana Nachman is bringing Miles’ story to the big screen. Well, she’s trying to. Nachman has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for the film, titled Batkid Begins, which now has its first official trailer, featuring Miles’ parents, »

28 July 2014 11:33 AM, PDT

Christopher Walken is officially king of the swingers.

Disney revealed today that the Oscar winner has joined the cast of its increasingly star-studded live action Jungle Book remake. Walken is set to voice the ape monarch King Louie, a part sure to be as flamboyant as his upcoming turn in NBC’s Peter Pan Live. (In Disney’s 1967 animated musical, Louie is the one who sings the jazzy classic “I Wanna Be Like You.”)

Lady Gaga cameos in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' red-band trailer

28 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT

Sin City, it seems, is a town full of antiheroes doing anti-heroic things and scantily clad women who are not operating at the highest level of morality, either.

In a new red-band trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, released at Comic-Con, we can see a bit more of co-directors Richard Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s plans for the sequel to the 2005 original—Joseph Gordon-Levitt opines on woes of gambling and women, Powers Booth plays a dangerous game of cards, Eva Green has nefarious plans for Josh Brolin, and Bruce Willis torments Jessica Alba.

Oh, and Lady Gaga »

'Horns' trailer: Speak of the devil and Daniel Radcliffe doth appear

28 July 2014 7:36 AM, PDT

Losing your girlfriend to murder is hard enough. Losing your girlfriend to murder, being accused of that murder, and then sprouting devil-like horns out of nowhere? Probably the worst.

This is what happens to Daniel Radcliffe’s character Ig in Horns, a film based on a book of the same name by author Joe Hill about a man who grows horns only to find that they give him great power. Because apparently, people start confessing their every secret to you once you start looking like the devil.

Marvel unveils 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' props at Comic-Con

28 July 2014 6:46 AM, PDT

Marvel unveiled three props from Avengers: Age of Ultron at their Comic-Con booth over the weekend—now you just have to guess what the props are.

It’s not too hard: The first prop is a piece of the Hulkbuster armor, what Tony Stark wears for maximum strength when he fights the Hulk, and the other is most likely an early version of Ultron, Stark’s artificial intelligence creation. Marvel also showed off Captain America’s cracked shield—guess it’s not so indestructible after all.
