8 hours ago

If we've learned anything from the movies, it's that love is worth fighting for.

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, and whether or not you have a date, our video of the top 10 most romantic gestures will definitely renew your faith in humanity. The characters in these films all went way out on a limb for love, and while most of us will just watch with admiration, we could probably take these gestures as some much-needed life advice.

Romantic comedies and dramas alike are filled with people who wore their heart on their sleeves and who made bold moves and even sacrifices for those they loved. It made compiling this list super difficult, but there's no doubt that all ten of these romances defied the odds.

From Love Actually, to Pretty Woman and The Graduate, here is our list of the top 10 romantic gestures on film. »

Zoolander 2 Interview: @TannerZee takes you behind the scenes

8 hours ago

Last weekend it was all Blue Steel and Magnum in New York City as I sat down with the cast of Zoolander 2. Admittedly I was a little nervous, but hey, it's New York, baby. If I can make it there... well, you get the idea. First, I spoke with the film’s villains, which included the returning evil champion, Mugatu, played by Will Ferrell, and new cast member Kristen Wiig as the evil fashionista, Alexanya Atoz. Will and Kristen have shared the big screen before, and with their time spent on Saturday Night Live, it felt like I was walking into a hangout with close friends. Personally, I’m a big fan of both of their work, so spending time with the two of them together was a little intimidating. I immediately warned them that because of this, at any time I could pass out from the shock, and if it happened, »

Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt show off their magnificent powers in new trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War

11 February 2016 1:48 PM, PST

Emily Blunt gives Frozen's Elsa a run for her money as the Ice Queen in The Huntsman: Winter's War.

She faces off with her sister Ravenna, the Evil Queen played by Charlize Theron in the new film. Reprising her role from Snow White and the Huntsman, she has even tougher competition not just to be the fairest of them all, but the fiercest queen of them all.

The film stars Chris Hemsworth, who gets to tell his back story as the Huntsman.This prequel is staying far away from Snow White, as the trailer reminds us that all of this happened before she came into the picture. The competition between Blunt and Theron promises an exciting time at the movies.

Jessica Chastain also stars in the film, and she looks to be the only woman who isn't evil in the film. We're excited to see who will win this battle. »

Ryan Reynolds gets inside of Kevin Costner's head in first trailer for Criminal

11 February 2016 12:55 PM, PST

Ryan Reynolds has a thing for switching bodies.

Criminal marks the third film where he plays a character who for one reason or another is implanted into someone else's body. First there was The Change Up, then last year's Self/Less, and now, in what looks to be the best of the bunch, there's Criminal.

This time around, it's Reynolds character who embodies Kevin Costner's "criminal". A former CIA agent who has been killed, his mind is planted into the body of a dangerous convict, in hopes of revealing information from before his untimely death.

The film boasts an impressive cast. Along with Reynolds and Costner, there's Gary OldmanTommy Lee Jones, and our future Wonder WomanGal Gadot. Though the plot is familiar, Criminal looks like it could take it to new lengths. With this many great actors in one film, and an impressive first trailer, we have »

Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Julia Roberts get sentimental in first trailer for Mother's Day

11 February 2016 12:16 PM, PST

Garry Marshall has brought us the perfect film to go see with our mom.

The director who specializes in all things sentimental is here with a new film that could potentially top some of his most famous comedies. Mother's Day is a celebration of mothers, in all of their various shapes and forms.

Jennifer Aniston is at the forefront as a single mother whose ex-husband is married to a much younger woman. On the other hand, there's Jason Sudeikis, a single father who finds himself in a similar predicament.

The film interweaves different stories about mothers and daughters, similar to what Marshall did with Valentine's Day and New Years Eve. We know his films can make us cry, as Beaches still remains one of the most heart-wrenching films about friendship ever made. With his track record, Mother's Day will be very funny, relatable, and potentially a sob-fest.

Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig get candid about Zoolander 2

11 February 2016 10:17 AM, PST

It's been fifteen years since the first Zoolander, and according to Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, a lot has changed.

In fact, today's era is the perfect place to re-visit the extremely vain characters of Derek Zoolander and Hansel, because society as a whole has become much more obsessed with vanity. Stiller essentially had to make a sequel, because it's vital for audiences to see where these characters are at today.

If you thought the first Zoolander film was ridiculous, Kristen Wiig ensures that this one is even crazier. The characters fit perfectly into today's world, and even Mugatu (Will Ferrell) is more over-the-top than he was before. We're totally down for a hilariously ridiculous time at the movies with this stellar cast.

We had the chance to talk to all Stiller, Wilson, Wiig and Ferrell. Watch the video below and see Zoolander 2 when it hits theatres on February 12th. »

Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill face off in the final trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

11 February 2016 9:36 AM, PST

Even the likes of Batman and Superman can be threatened by power.

Judging by the final trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, both men don't seem too sure of themselves when pitted against the other. We have no idea who will be winning this battle, but we're going to bet that Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) steals the show.

With a fair glimpse at Lois Lane (Amy Adams), Batffleck, Superman (Henry Cavill), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and his luscious locks, the final trailer for the film has got us more pumped than ever before.

Zack Snyder's follow up to Man of Steel seems to be taking a hint from Christopher Nolan's revered Batman franchise, in that it is painting the beloved superhero to be a dark, brooding, and even angry type. While Man of Steel itself wasn't the most light-hearted of films, Batman v Superman seems to »

Jed Rees talks going head to head with Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool

11 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST

Jed Rees plays The Recruiter in this month’s Deadpool. He’s the mysterious man who finds terminally ill Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and offers him the chance to not only live, but transform into a potty-mouthed, indestructible superhero.

Although he now lives outside Los Angeles, Rees was born and raised in Vancouver — as was Reynolds — which led to one of those “isn’t life funny” moments on the film’s Vancouver set.

“It was cool, we were shooting in the Cobalt Hotel, which is pretty famous for being a complete dive bar,” says Rees on the line from his California home, “and I’m thinking, ‘Here’s a couple of kids from Vancouver working on a big movie in their hometown.’”

Rees has appeared in more than 60 films and TV shows in his 25-year career, including Galaxy QuestandElizabethtown, but the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with Reynolds was special.

“It was a bit intense, »

Violence targets Frank Grillo and Elizabeth Mitchell in new trailer for The Purge: Election Year

10 February 2016 9:13 AM, PST

The Purge is back for round three, but may come to an end if presidential candidate Charlene Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) gets her way.

The popular horror franchise depicts a society in which for one night a year, all crime, including murder, is legal. The third installment of the film entitled The Purge: Election Year, revolves around a presidential election. Senator Charlene Roan’s family was a victim of the purge years ago, and she was the only one to survive the night. It's now her mission to end the purge.

While Charlene battles against the yearly tradition, the latest edition of the purge makes her a target, and the night is as gruesome as ever. Where the goal of the purge is to reduce crime throughout the year, it unleashes the madness harboured by even the least suspecting individuals.

Frank Grillo returns as Leo Barnes, who stopped himself from committing »

Penelope Cruz talks laughing with Ben Stiller on the set of Zoolander 2

10 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST

It’s hard to take Ben Stiller seriously. The successful actor, writer and producer has directed six movies, butPenélope Cruz couldn’t keep a straight face while taking direction from him on the set of Zoolander 2.

“Most of the time, Ben would come out of his trailer dressed as Derek Zoolander. Everyone on set was crying real tears because we were laughing so hard,” says Cruz during a recent Toronto interview.

Fifteen years after the first Zoolander movie, the Spanish superstar plays Valentina, a voluptuous Interpol agent in the sequel to Stiller’s silly satire of the fashion industry. Owen WilsonWill FerrellBenedict Cumberbatch and Kristen Wiig also join the all-star ensemble.

“Ben is really serious when he’s working,” Cruz says. “It’s like he’s not aware that he’s wearing the most ridiculous outfits. I don’t know how he can handle so much pressure; he’s so professional. »

Dory hides with jellyfish in the adorable new poster for Finding Dory

9 February 2016 8:18 AM, PST

Dory was everyone's favourite part of Disney's Finding Nemo, and on June 17th, we are going to learn so much more about the confused blue tang fish.

In this new poster for Finding Dory, Dory can be seen hiding behind a sea of jellyfish. While we would never go anywhere near those jellies, Dory likely sees them as companions, because she's seriously the friendliest fish around.

While Nemo was physically lost in the Great Barrier Reef, Dory is already lost in a different way. As she suffers short term memory loss, she has a hard time remembering where she came from and is on a quest reunite with her family. We're so excited to go on this self-discovering journey with Dory. 

Ellen DeGeneres is back providing Dory's voice, along with Albert Brooks reprising his role as Marlon. Joining the cast are Idris ElbaMichael SheenTy BurrellEd O'NeillKaitlin Olson »

Listed: 10 best movie sequels

9 February 2016 7:40 AM, PST

It’s been fifteen years since Derek Zoolander and Hansel last walked the runway. This year they're back, and better than ever.

With the highly anticipated Zoolander 2 hitting theatres this Friday, it's the perfect opportunity to look at some of the best movie sequels of all time.

We have high hopes for Zoolander 2Ben StillerOwen Wilson and Will Ferrell are joined by Kristen Wiig,Penelope CruzBenedict Cumberbatch, and even Justin Bieber. It’s a sequel that’s going to be filled with cameos, laughs, and hopefully a lot of “Magnum” and “Blue Steel.”

The question is, will Zoolander 2 be better than the first? It’ll be tough to out-do the cult comedy classic, but below we take a look at ten sequels that arguably did just that. A great idea can sustain more than one film, and here’s proof that sometimes things are even better the second time around. »

Zac Efron and Adam DeVine date Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick in first trailer for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

8 February 2016 11:35 AM, PST

Zac Efron and Adam Devine are brothers who can’t stay out of trouble.

After their parents make them find respectable dates for their sister’s wedding, Mike and Dave still can’t catch a break. Known to cause havoc at all major family events, getting a date for this wedding seems like an idea that could tame the two men—except that the girls they find are even wilder than they are.

Aubrey Plaza and Efron are currently sharing the screen in Dirty Grandpa, and this July they’ll be paired together again, in an equally chaotic, wedding-themed bender. Anna Kendrick and Adam Devine who both previously co-starred in the Pitch Perfect films will also be seeing an on-screen reunion with Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and we can bet that this wedding will be far from pitch perfect.

In this new trailer, we get to see Mike and Dave meet their matches, »

Super Bowl Movie Trailers: Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse and more during the big game

8 February 2016 7:05 AM, PST

Updated: Check out the best trailers of the night! As much as we love football, the most exciting part of Super Bowl Sunday is definitely all of the high profile movie trailers that are about to drop. While the big event is a highlight of the year for sports fans, it also delivers for movie lovers.

We already have good insight as to what may be dropping on Super Bowl Sunday. Disney is making waves with their recently released Alice Through the Looking Glass teaser, and also promise a closer look at the up-coming live-action reboot of The Jungle Book. We’re also going to bet that we’ll see something epic for Captain America: Civil War, and if we’re really lucky, maybe even a sneak peek at the Star Wars prequel, Rogue One.

With Deadpool and Zoolander 2 out next Friday, it’s pretty much a guarantee that »

Super Bowl Movie Trailers: Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse and more during the big game

8 February 2016 7:05 AM, PST

As much as we love football, the most exciting part of Super Bowl Sunday is definitely all of the high profile movie trailers that were released. While the big event is a highlight of the year for sports fans, it also delivers major anticipation for movie lovers.

Last night, animals and superheroes dominated the night, with new trailers for The Secret Life of Pets, alongside Captain America: Civil War, Deadpool, and X-Men Apocalypse.

As exciting as those new spots were, we can’t help but be the most pumped about the return of Jason Bourne. Matt Damon returns to headline the series he is most famous for, and the previously untitled film is simply called Jason Bourne, and is bound to be epic. 10 Cloverfield Lane revealed a little bit more of its plot, which is pretty awesome considering the fact that the film was a secret until its first trailer debuted about a month ago. »

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu wins the DGA award for The Revenant and the Oscar race remains unpredictable

8 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST

An unclear season got a little foggier on Saturday with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Directors Guild win for his harrowing frontier epic The Revenant. With only weeks to go before the Academy Awards on Feb. 28, the race is still as wide open as ever.

Even the guilds are divided in their top awards. Spotlight, the drama detailing the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation into sex abuses in the Catholic Church, won the Screen Actors Guild award for best ensemble, while the financial crisis dramedy The Big Short picked up the Producers Guild Award.

The DGA win for The Revenant is not insignificant. Inarritu won last year for the showbiz sendup Birdman, which went on to win the best picture and best director Oscar. In fact, only seven times in the history of the DGAs has a director who won the guild's top award not gone on to win the Academy Award.

The Perfect Rom-Com, When Harry Met Sally returns to the big screen

8 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST

Hollywood rom-coms don’t get much better than 1989’s beloved When Harry Met Sally…, a movie that helped define the genre and paved the way for countless (and lesser) knockoffs.

Wisecracking Harry (Billy Crystal) and tightly wound Sally (Meg Ryan) hate each other when they first meet, but over time become platonic best friends.

However, their attraction to each other grows, leading to complications that threaten their friendship.

Director Rob Reiner and screenwriter Nora Ephron based the film on their experiences as divorced people thrust back into the dating world. Ephron spent years honing a script packed with memorable one-liners and, what was groundbreaking at the time, scenes featuring men and women having frank, funny discussions about sex.

It all comes together in the hands of the two leads. Crystal is at his charming best, but his Harry is also smug and emotionally aloof, while girl-next-door Ryan relishes playing a woman beset with insecurities. »
