Watch: Marc Webb and His 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Cast Explain What's Happening in the New Trailer

5 December 2013 1:10 PM, PST

"Peter will learn things about his past that will inform his future in very provocative ways," so says director Marc Webb in this pretty cool trailer commentary that runs almost nine minutes. In it, Webb joins other cast members like Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Dane DeHaan in breaking down some of the trailer's biggest moments by filling in some background information that's pertinent to the plot. As we said in the other trailer post, this is a preview that not only highlights big moments from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but it also teases the future of the franchise in a few key scenes, like when that mysterious man walks past the suits for villains Doc Ock and Vulture, or when they flash a room with six doors in it, alluding to the Sinister Six -- a group...

Your Favorite Thing Today: The 'Christmas Story' Frozen-Tongue Scene Re-created on a New York Subway

5 December 2013 12:00 PM, PST

The guys at Improv Everywhere have been delighting movie fans for the past few months with impromptu performance art pieces re-creating classic scenes from great films. With the holidays rapidly approaching, it makes perfect sense that they’d eventually get around to reenacting a scene from the beloved A Christmas Story at some point this month. Turns out, the special event has happened – and we’ve got video of the scene. There is no shortage of great moments in Bob Clark’s holiday staple that would have been worthy of an improv performance. However, the crew could only pick one – and they settled on the infamous “tongue frozen to the flagpole” sequence from early in the film. Rather than perform outside, our three young actors...

Here's When You Can Finally Watch Lars von Trier's Sexually Charged 'Nymphomaniac' at Home and in Theaters

5 December 2013 11:00 AM, PST

  I think I speak for everyone when I say that we all want the awkward boner quotient surrounding Lars von Trier’s sex opus Nyphmomaniac to be at a minimum. Thankfully, Magnolia Pictures has decided to release the film about one woman’s sexual journey via On Demand, in addition to a newly announced theatrical date. You can watch Charlotte Gainsbourg’s self-diagnosed nympho Joe joined (quite literally) by Stellan Skarsgård, Shia Labeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier when part one of the digital release hits VOD on March 6. Part two will be released on April 3. If you prefer to see the “whoring bed” on the big screen, the film will debut in theaters on March 21 (part one) and April...

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer Opens Up a Whole New Universe for the Marvel Superhero

5 December 2013 7:31 AM, PST

Once again we have a Marvel superhero movie kicking off the 2014 summer movie season (though with films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier arriving before it in April, it's pretty easy these days to question when, exactly, that season actually begins). Due out on May 2, 2014, the first full trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has just arrived online, and you can check it out below. What this trailer definitely does is get you excited for what appears to be a very cool Spider-Man movie, but this first look also teases a lot more. Not only do we see Electro (Jamie Foxx), the film's primary villain, and a brief glimpse of Rhino (Paul Giamatti) in some kind of giant mech suit, but they also tease Harry Osborn's transformation into some form of Goblin...

Which Other Justice League Characters Must Show Up in the 'Batman vs. Superman' Movie?

4 December 2013 7:00 PM, PST

We don't want the Man of Steel sequel to be too crowded, right? After all, it is first and foremost a follow-up to a solo Superman movie. But we are excited about Batman showing up, especially if it's Batman vs. Superman (whether that is the official title or just what everyone will continue to call it forever and ever). And now we can be even more excited about Wonder Woman finally appearing in a live-action theatrical release, with a confirmed report that former Miss Israel Gal Gadot will play the superheroine. But can we squeeze in one more? As long as this is going to be a buildup to something actually called Justice League, why not get a few introductions out of the way in what's already feeling like a transitional narrative? Let's consider a few of the...

Dialogue: The Coen Brothers Explain the Inspiration Behind 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

4 December 2013 6:00 PM, PST

For two guys whose films are often cryptic, impenetrable or even flat-out bizarre, Joel and Ethan Coen present the work they do to make them in a remarkably mundane way. Cozied up in a hotel room in Beverly Hills to talk about their latest project, Inside Llewyn Davis, they never hold back in explaining how they came up with their ideas for the 1960s-set character study, or what they were thinking when they decided to paint a vivid portrait of a folk musician who never quite finds success, at least not on his own terms. But then again, the Coens have never gone through the experience that their character does – namely, having to compromise – so it stands to reason that their candor and clarity is a direct byproduct of career-long artistic freedom.

Comics on Film: 'Batman vs. Superman' to Include Doomsday And Wonder Woman?

4 December 2013 5:00 PM, PST

The sequel to Man of Steel is shaping up to be quite the blockbuster event, not just for general audiences who will likely see Superman and Batman interact for the first time, but also for DC Comics fans. After a producer potentially confirmed both the appearance of Dick Grayson and the presence of Kingdom Come-esque "Bat Drones," the Internet was set ablaze with a lot of possibilities revolving around the inclusion of Nightwing, and the "tired and weary" Batman's history in the world of Man of Steel. Now, that same producer has started the rumor mill yet again, this time with more potential character confirmations - one of which that has already panned out - that will make a decisive impact on the shape of the film.

You're Old: Gus Van Sant's 'Psycho' Came Out 15 Years Ago This Week

4 December 2013 3:00 PM, PST

Remakes of beloved films and the outrage that always accompanies them are so common that they barely warrant attention anymore. But there was one so bafflingly wrong-headed that it will live forever in the cinematic annals of infamy: Gus Van Sant's Psycho, an almost shot-for-shot facsimile of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 classic. People rent their clothes and gnashed their teeth at the mere suggestion of it, and got even angrier once they actually saw it. Perhaps most alarming in hindsight: it happened 15 years ago. Why do the wounds still feel so fresh? If you remember the release of Van Sant's Psycho on December 4, 1998, and how civilization collapsed and the Earth was plunged into a thousand years of darkness, I have even worse news: You're Old®. I kid the...

'Singin in the Rain' Director May Return to the Big Screen for the First Time in 30 Years

4 December 2013 2:15 PM, PST

  Few films bring us as much joy as Singin’ in the Rain. According to ShowBiz411, director Stanley Donen has a new movie on the way — his first time behind the camera since a 1999 TV movie and almost 30 years since his last theatrical feature, Blame It on Rio. The new project is cowritten with his significant other, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and The Heartbreak Kid director Elaine May, and will be produced by Mike Nichols. The legendary partnership is promising a “wry” comedic tale about the making of a movie and everything that goes wrong with it — a familiar formula, but a welcome one. Other details are sparse so far, but the website does reveal a list of names who read for investors: Christopher Walken, Charles Grodin, Ron...

Steve Carell's 'Anchorman' Audition Tape Is Funnier Than Most Completed Comedies

4 December 2013 1:20 PM, PST

  Steve Carell made a career out of playing the dopey, lovable goof (see: The 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Office for starters). His role in Adam McKay’s Anchorman was no different, playing dense meteorologist Brick Tamland. The name says it all, really. Now that a sequel to the 2004 comedy is on its way, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, a copy of Carell’s Anchorman audition tape has surfaced. It’s basically a two-minute video of the actor laughing so hard he turns purple, but that alone is funny as hell. In this read-through, Brick mistakes a used coffee filter with cigarette butts on it for a “falafel hot dog with cinnamon and bacon on top.” You can hear Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy reading his lines, and then mass laughter ensues. The...

Ben Affleck Talks Batman, Internet Backlash and 'Daredevil' Regrets in New Interview

4 December 2013 12:25 PM, PST

Ben Affleck is keenly aware of the fact that many of you are not thrilled about his casting as Batman in the upcoming Zack Snyder feature Batman vs. Superman – but the actor is doing the best he can to help allay those concerns. Bat-fleck has now taken his case to the public in a Playboy interview in which the actor talks about his motivations for donning the cowl, his realization that the fans aren’t entirely on board with him landing the part, and what he thinks of Daredevil. We’ve gathered some of the best quotes for your perusal. To start with, Affleck was aware of what he was in for when he signed on. He tells Playboy that Warner Bros. actually showed him some of the fan reaction to earlier casting just so he’d know what to expect out of...

Gal Gadot Is Wonder Woman in 'Batman vs. Superman'

4 December 2013 11:44 AM, PST

Rumors have been swirling for quite a while now that Wonder Woman would be making an appearance of some kind in Batman vs. Superman, and now we have confirmation from Variety that Gal Gadot has landed the highly coveted role. Unfortunately we don't have a shred of news beyond that casting announcement, but we will update this space as soon as we do. Gadot is a relatively new face in Hollywood, having broken onto the scene in 2009 as Gisele in Fast & Furious. She stayed on that series until part six, when her character exited the franchise. Beyond that she's had small roles in Date Night and Knight and Day, as well as in a few TV shows in her native Israel. Here's what Zack Snyder had to say about her casting: “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most...

'American Hustle' Is Both Deliciously Sexy and Hilariously Unsexy

4 December 2013 11:00 AM, PST

David O. Russell's American Hustle is at times both deliciously sexy and hilariously unsexy in its attempt to portray the awful, scheming hustlers we all pretend not to be. This isn't a movie about one man or one real-life controversial FBI sting operation -- it's about figuring out where to draw the line when it comes to success. How many people do you screw over? How many lies do you need to tell? How many hearts will you need to break in order to become everything you've ever wanted to be? American Hustle is like a cautionary tale for idiots. Here's what not to do in order to get ahead in life. Its characters are scumbags and their motives are almost always suspect, but the brilliance of this film lies in the weird way they all win you over. You won't...

Watch: This Exclusive 'Inside Llewyn Davis' TV Spot Wonders if You Ever Think About the Future

4 December 2013 10:00 AM, PST

Inside Llewyn Davis is one of the best films of 2013. Of course, everyone can pretty much count on that without having seen it. This is, after all, the new Coen brothers film. Sure, you should never prejudge a movie, but considering it's written and directed by the duo behind No Country for Old Men, Fargo, Raising Arizona and a dozen other American classics, it's not exactly a risky bet to assume any film they make is going to stand out in whatever year it's released. (Plus, having seen it, I can attest it is indeed one of the year's finest.) Their latest is a beautiful, soulful, funny and yet oddly solemn film that follows a week in the life of Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), a folk singer trying to make a living in New York City in 1961. And no, you don't have...

Movie News: Charged-Up 'Spider-Man 2' Pics; 'Nymphomaniac' Trailer Before 'Frozen' Screening Denied

4 December 2013 8:00 AM, PST

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Ahead of tomorrow's premiere of the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, several new images have been released. We're especially fond of one that features Jamie Foxx as Electro in full, charged-up villain mode, as well as another that shows Peter Parker's costumed flexibility. The movie swings into theaters on May 2, 2014. [USA Today] Nymphomaniac: Magnolia Pictures, the U.S. distributor for Lars von Trier's upcoming Nymphomaniac, has characterized a report that the sexually explicit trailer played before a screening of Disney's Frozen as "extremely unlikely." Regal Entertainment Group says that "less than two minutes" of an "incorrect movie" played at a theater in Florida, but has not...

'Doctor Who: The Movie,' 'Star Wars,' Spider-Man, Batman vs. Superman and More Geeky Things to Buy This Month

3 December 2013 7:00 PM, PST

It's the first week of December, and that means it's time for another column filled with recommendations of all manner of geekery based on the the latest news from Hollywood, upcoming projects, and whatever else the cool kids (or at the very least, my wonderfully nerdy colleagues) are buzzing about these days. November was a big month for Whovians with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who marked by a feature-length special that packed in past, present and future Doctors for a wild adventure through time and space. Not only did the “The Day of the Doctor” span a meaty 76 minutes, but it also generated almost $5 million at the U.S. box office during its one-night-only 3D showing on 660 screens around the country. Not too shabby! Of course, any true Whovian will...
