New 'Killing Them Softly' Trailer: Now With Even More Brad Pitt

25 November 2012 9:44 AM, PST

You'd think that a new Brad Pitt film about gritty hitmen doing their dirty deeds would be the kind of thing that would generate a lot of buzz, but so far, there has been curiously little chatter about "Killing Them Softly," even though it opens this Friday. Heck, it hasn't even cracked the top 25 on our MovieTracker. Maybe they should have called it "Killing Them Loudly" instead.

All of which explains why there's a brand new trailer for "Killing Them Softly" making the rounds.

Hey, fans have to start watching something other than "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" at some point, right?

Here's the deal: Pitt plays a hitman who is brought in to take down some dudes who stole some money from the wrong guy. So he gets his old buddy James Gandolfini to help him out and they start capping some asses, which may or »

'Twilight' Feasts On Thanksgiving Box Office

25 November 2012 9:26 AM, PST

There's only one thing that Americans enjoy more than turkey, and that's stuffing themselves into movie theaters on Thanksgiving, as according to Film.com, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" helped power the highest grossing five-day weekend in film history.

And "Breaking Dawn's" $64 million was just part of the story, as "Skyfall" ($51 million) and "Lincoln" ($34.1 million) both raked in the cash as well, allowing those three films to finish 1-2-3 at the box office for the second weekend in a row.

For a full run down on the box office for the extended Thanksgiving holiday weekend, including figures for new releases "Life of Pi," "Rise of the Guardians" and "Red Dawn," head to Film.com. »

Before They Were Famous: Bradley Cooper in 'Wet Hot American Summer'

23 November 2012 11:00 AM, PST

Bradley Cooper is exceptional at playing the cool jerk that viewers can't help but love.

In "The Hangover" and "The Hangover Part II," his character Phil Wenneck is "that guy," the former high school football star-type women still swoon over. It's hard to imagine Cooper not always being a Phil Wenneck, even in real life.

But Cooper is not "that guy." He's just good at acting like it. His earnest grilling of Sean Penn on "Inside the Actors Studio" when he was 23 proves that, as does "Silver Linings Playbook" and his feature-film debut: 2001's "Wet Hot American Summer."

"Whas," which has developed a rabid cult following in the decade since its release, starred numerous former members of the MTV sketch-comedy show "The State," as well as (then) young up-and-comers Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks and Judah Friedlander.

Cooper played Ben, a Camp Firewood counselor who at first seems like »

Gallery: Chris Hemsworth - Soldier, Huntsman and Superhero

22 November 2012 3:00 PM, PST

View Gallery »

Chris Hemsworth worked the rugged look in every possible way this year: outdoors guy, Norse god, huntsman and, now, homemade soldier. His rippling muscles and blue eyes alone prove there's something in the Aussie water.

This week he's trading in his mighty "Thor" hammer for an assault rifle in "Red Dawn," keeping America safe from invading communist forces.

Sure, Chris' younger brother Liam enjoyed some time in the spotlight this year with '"The Hunger Games," but between "Snow White and the Huntsman," "The Cabin in the Woods," "The Avengers" and now "Red Dawn," the elder Hemsworth is the only one we want to cuddle with out in the wilderness.

See for yourself with Chris' Hot People Looking Hot gallery. Trust us, you'll forget all about the threat of the North Korean army after going through these pics. »

Happy Fansgiving! A Fanboy Counts His 2012 Blessings

22 November 2012 12:00 PM, PST

It isn't just a time when it is socially acceptable to eat gelatinous discs of cranberry flavoring and call it respecting tradition, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what is best in life.

We have it good on Planet Fanboy. I mean, we've got the reduced gravity, the constantly clement temperature and the complete ban on that "Tonight We Are Young" song.

Furthermore, there appears to be no end in sight to our stranglehold on big-budget movies. Here, then, a quick list of things we should be thankful for.

*That time Hulk punched Thor.

*That time Hulk threw Loki around like a chew toy.

*That time Hulk skidded across the sides of buildings to save Iron Man as he fell from the sky.

*That time Mark Ruffalo said "I'm always angry" then changed into Hulk on cue to stop that massive Chitauri airship from smooshing the rest of the Avengers. »

13 Things We're Thankful For This Year

22 November 2012 7:00 AM, PST

Despite hurricanes, earthquakes and every movie Taylor Kitsch made, 2012 has been a bounty of riches.

And, since it's Thanksgiving and all, we feel it's high time we took a moment to give thanks for those things (and people!) that have made this year so epically special.

So, without further ado...

1. 'Magic Mike,' for bringing sexy back.

2. Ben Affleck, for growing up to be a damn fine director. Who'd a guessed it?

3. Robert Pattinson, for teaching us what it looks like to truly feel.


4. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, for being super-cute and super-cool at the same time.

5. Javier Bardem, for being one of the Best. Bond. Villains. Ever.

6. The riff-off! (From 'Pitch Perfect')


7. The Hulk, for smashing.

8. Stephen Chbosky, for adapting and directing his own book, and thus making a near-perfect film.

9. Bruce Willis, for always looking so darn confused.


10. Bill Murray, for his various offscreen cameos around the world. »

Dwayne Johnson Punches Drugs in 'Snitch' Trailer

21 November 2012 2:09 PM, PST

If you're ever thrown in the slammer for a drug deal you had nothing to do with, you'd better hope your dad is The Rock.

Dwayne Johnson (who's apparently now old enough to have a teenage son, which kind of freaks us out) stars as a construction worker who volunteers to go undercover into the dangerous world of drug trafficking in order to reduce his son's prison sentence in "Snitch" (which obviously isn't the sequel to "Snatch," as you may have thought upon first hearing the title).

Johnson's aces at turning completely preposterous premises into solid pieces of popcorn entertainment thanks to his super-earnest acting style and just all-around awesomeness. "Snitch" looks like it's going to benefit greatly from the presence of the "Fast Five" star, especially when the main villain (Benjamin Bratt) is a guy who apparently just goes around firing automatic weapons into the air whenever the mood strikes him. »

Noomi Rapace Brings 'Doom and Gloom' to Rolling Stones Video

21 November 2012 1:28 PM, PST

"What's it all about?" asks Mick Jagger in the new Rolling Stones single, "Doom and Gloom." Well, when it comes to the song's official music video ... well, we're not quite sure.

But hey, when the video features "Prometheus" star Noomi Rapace as an airline stewardess, zombie killer, fast food gorger and somewhat topless hitchhiker, who needs an explanation for just what in the hell is exactly going on? Just sit back and watch these old dudes try to prove that they've still got it with a little help from an international hottie in this bizarro Nsfw indulgence.

The single is one of two new tracks on the latest Stones greatest hits package, "Grrr!" (??) It's catchy but disposable, though perhaps slightly more memorable than it would've been without a video featuring the original "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" strutting about even more shamelessly than Mick Jagger himself.

Start it up below, »

9 Movie Families You Wouldn't Want to Spend Thanksgiving With

21 November 2012 1:00 PM, PST

Ah, Thanksgiving: the time of year we pause, count our blessings and enjoy time with the family try not to murder our loved ones.

While it's true that most of us go into this holiday with only the best of intentions, it seems few of us escape the sit-down dinner with our nearest and dearest unscathed. Uncle Rick had too many cocktails. Mom forgot to turn on the oven. Someone threw the raw turkey through a picture window. Okay, maybe that's less common than we'd like to think.

However, as challenging as our own families may be ... they could be worse. Really. And in case you don't believe us, we've made a list of nine film families you really wouldn't want to spend Turkey Day with. From a disturbed child to a chainsaw-wielding killer, these folks make a meal with even your most difficult kin seem like a walk in the park. »

Aliens Are the New Ghosts in 'Dark Skies' Trailer

21 November 2012 11:33 AM, PST

Just when we were learning how to deal with the whole "Paranormal Activity" thing comes a brand new home-invading menace to freak us out all over again.

Little grey men laugh at your silly home alarm system in "Dark Skies," the new sci-fi thriller in which a suburban family becomes targeted by aliens that like to make abstract art installations with kitchen appliances and inspire flocks of birds to commit mass suicide against the living room window.

What do you do when you realize you're being poked and prodded by visitors from outer space while you sleep? Call J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) himself, of course. The truth is out there!

Keri Russell and Josh Hamilton star in the latest film from director Scott Charles Stewart, who has (thankfully) left behind the religious horror elements of "Legion" and "Priest" now that he's hooked up with the producers of "Paranormal Activity" and "Insidious. »

Bag End: Air New Zealand Has a Hobbit-Themed Carousel

21 November 2012 10:44 AM, PST

Boarding now at Gate C11, destination The Shire, departing at 12:35.

Air New Zealand continues to fully embrace "Lord of the Rings" mania, this time with a Hobbit-themed airport baggage carousel.

Peter Jackson, director of the in-production "Hobbit" trilogy as well as the extremely popular "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, chose to have New Zealand represent the film's Middle Earth setting. Air New Zealand has declared itself "Air Middle Earth," going so far as to produce an in-flight safety video where Tolkien-esque characters instruct you to look for the nearest exit. And now, of course, you can pick up your Baggins at this Bag End.

The first film in the trilogy, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," will be released Dec. 14.

'I Give It A Year,' You Give This Trailer a Thumbs Up

21 November 2012 10:29 AM, PST

What happens after a rom-com ends?

That's the premise behind the new trailer for "I Give it a Year," which begins with the usual romcom ending — Rafe Spall and Rose Byrne's characters get married — and dives into the not-so-happily-ever after they are left with.

They may be giving it a year, but they'll also be giving you a laugh.

So what does happen when the romance is gone from a rom-com? You're just left with pure, fantastic comedy, that's what. And fittingly, "I Give it a Year" has packed in some comic excellence in the supporting roles, with Anna Faris and "The Office"'s Stephan Merchant proving top level backup.

Check it out, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies UK. And don't worry; the characters may give it a year, but this one should be hitting movie theaters some time within the next few months.
