Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson bows out of franchise

14 hours ago

Sam Taylor-Johnson will not be returning to direct the sequels to Fifty Shades of Grey, she announced Wednesday night.

"Directing Fifty Shades of Grey has been an intense and incredible journey for which I am hugely grateful," she said in a statement to industry site Deadline in which she thanked Universal Pictures.

Taylor-Johnson's $40 million adaptation of author E L James' erotic novel has grossed a staggering $558 million worldwide in just six weeks in theatres, but even before the film debuted, rumours circulated that she would not likely be the person ushering Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed to the big screen.

Stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are expected to return for both sequels, which have yet to be officially announced. »

Exclusive first look at Preggoland poster

20 hours ago

One little lie spirals out of control for 35-year-old Ruth in the Canadian comedy Preggoland.

All of Ruth’s friends have kids.  As the odd one out, single and frustrated party girl Ruth (Sonja Bennett) makes the mistake of her lifetime: telling her elderly dad (James Caan) that she’s pregnant.  There’s just one catch, of course, she’s not having a baby, and her small outburst has spread like wildfire within her small town and circle of friends.  Now, not willing to admit that she’s not knocked up, Ruth must continue her charade with hilarious results.  Even Machete himself, Danny Trejo gets wrapped up in her story.

With a script by Vancouver-born Bennett, Preggoland is directed by Jacob Tierney, the actor-director behind The Trotsky.  The comedy debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival this past September and is finally making its way to select Cineplex screens on »

Will Ferrell’s 10 most quotable one-liners

21 hours ago

Will Ferrell gets a little help from his friend Kevin Hart in this weekend’s Get Hard.

In the new comedy, James (Ferrell), a millionaire, is convicted for fraud and told that he has thirty days to get his affairs in order before he’s behind bars. He hires Darnell (Hart) to toughen him up and teach him how to survive his ten-year sentence.

The only problem?

Darnell’s never been to jail. He’s never even had a parking ticket.

Between the comedic chops and larger-than-life personalities of Ferrell and Hart, and the film’s ridiculously great premise, we’re sure that Get Hard will be overstuffed with memorable Will Ferrell one-liners.

But let’s take the opportunity to look back on our favourite “Ferrellisms,” the greatest quick quotes from Will Ferrell’s career on film. »

24 March 2015 12:08 PM, PDT

Kevin Hart teaches Will Ferrell the ins and outs of prison life in the comedy Get Hard, which opens in Cineplex theatres this Friday.  We visited the set of the movie to ask the actors three questions about their new film.

See what they had to say now:

 

Cineplex: What’s the movie about?

Will Ferrell: “The film is about my character, James King, who is basically brought up on charges of embezzlement. He’s a very top-notch, high-earning member of the financial world and he’s been accused of embezzling $200-million from his company. He gets convicted. The judge is sick of people like me going to the country club prisons and he throws the book at me, sentences me to 10 years in San Quentin. Now, I meet Darnell [Kevin Hart]. He’s just a guy trying to get by.... We meet one day — even though he works in my »

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation gets its first trailer and poster

23 March 2015 8:59 AM, PDT

Tom Cruise reprises his role of agent Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible sequel, Rogue Nation, this summer, and we couldn't be more stoked. Especially with the film's newly-announced premise.

The Impossible Missions Force (or Imf for short) are up against their “evil twin,” a rogue group of special agents and assassins that do for the bad guys what Hunt, William Brandt (Jeremy Renner), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) have been doing for years. 

Will the Imf be able to shut down the rogue Syndicate before the Imf are taken out? We’ll have to wait until July 31 to see.

In the meantime, check out the first poster and trailer for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation below! There’s enough Simon Pegg affability to hold you over until the summer.

Will Ferrell is prepping to go behind bars in the new comedy Get Hard.

As millionaire James King, Ferrell stars opposite comedian Kevin Hart as Darnell Lewis, a man he turns to in order to get him in shape for his stay at San Quentin State Prison.  There’s only one catch: Darnell hasn’t actually been to prison.

The 5 best performances by America's Sweetheart, Pretty Woman's Julia Roberts

23 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

Molly Ringwald and Al Pacino made a Big Mistake. Big. Huge.  They were the original cast picks for Garry Marshall's Pretty Woman. The roles eventually went to America's newest sweetheart, Julia Roberts, and Hollywood's Most Eligible Bachelor, Richard Gere. Of course the "hooker with a heart of gold" comedy became one of the biggest and most iconic rom-coms ever.  In celebration of Pretty Woman’s twenty-fifth anniversary, we picked out five of our favourite performances from the Southern belle, Julia Roberts. Unfortunately, some of Julia’s best work – and yes, we’re totally including My Best Friend’s Wedding and Notting Hill – didn’t make the cut, but we still love ‘em anyway. »
