‘When We First Met’ Trailer: Adam Devine Gets Friend-Zoned in Netflix Time-Travel Movie

Netflix has released the trailer for the new original film When We First Met, which hails from The Duff director Ari Sandel. Written by John Whittington (The Lego Batman Movie), the film stars Adam Devine as Noah, a guy who has a perfect night with Avery (Alexandra Daddario), only to get friend zoned at the end of it. Years later he gets the chance to travel back in time and do things over again, resulting in something of a Groundhog Day scenario. Time travel romantic comedies can be a lot of fun—Groundhog Day qualifies, and Kate & Leopold is …

James Mangold Helped Oversee ‘Greatest Showman’ Reshoots, Post-Production (Exclusive)

James Mangold Helped Oversee ‘Greatest Showman’ Reshoots, Post-Production (Exclusive)
James Mangold came to the aid of his old pal Hugh Jackman at a critical moment during the making of “The Greatest Showman.” The “Logan” director was enlisted to help oversee a week of reshoots on the lavish movie musical last fall after 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the film, became concerned that Michael Gracey was overwhelmed with the scope of the picture.

Gracey, who is making his feature film directorial debut with “The Greatest Showman,” had an extensive resume of commercials work, but struggled to adjust to the pressure of calling the shots on an $84 million film. It was also determined that he could use a veteran’s assistance with the post-production process.

To that end, Mangold helped edit the picture. He was given an executive producer credit for his work and was paid a seven-figure salary for his contributions.

A source close to the studio disputed any notion that Gracey had lost control of the

‘Logan’: 10 Ways Hugh Jackman and James Mangold Convinced Fox to Make A Bold and Bloody Superhero Movie

‘Logan’: 10 Ways Hugh Jackman and James Mangold Convinced Fox to Make A Bold and Bloody Superhero Movie
Logan” will open huge this weekend, but the well-reviewed R-rated “Wolverine” sequel starring Hugh Jackman will provide Hollywood with something it needs more than great box office: It means permission to challenge the status quo.

Studios are in trouble. Box office is down four percent for the year to date — and the main culprit is combining familiar franchise properties with tried-and-true formulas.

Of course, “Logan” is the 10th installment in the “X-Men” franchise, which 20th Century Fox launched 16 years ago with producer Lauren Shuler Donner. But “Wolverine” director James Mangold didn’t direct it like a sequel.

Here’s how Mangold threw out the studio rulebook — and why Fox let him.

1. Get the backing of a major star.

Immediately after finishing “Wolverine” in 2013, Jackman and Mangold had a chat: Did they want to do this movie again? “If there was one, it would be his last one,” Mangold told me in a telephone interview.

Recap: 'Sleepy Hollow' says 'Tempus Fugit,' goes all in on time-travel shenanigans
Here at the very end of the season, “Sleepy Hollow” finally gets its legs in ‘Tempus Fugit.” Whether or not it will enough to grant the floundering show a third year remains to be seen, but if the Scooby gang Should return in the Fall of 2015, it’ll be as a much trimmer team. The best part of the season happened in the last five minutes of the previous episode. While “Tempus Fugit” doesn’t fully commit the show to a time-traveling Abbie Mills, it does crams in as much fun and fear as it can in 40 minutes. Mills as a woman out of her time, — but never out of her element — could’ve been an entire season arc. If the “Sleepy Hollow” writers were feeling feisty, they could’ve pulled a “Kate and Leopold,” and just said time is obviously a Mobius strip and Abbie was Always meant to

Hugh Jackman To Host TNT’s Christmas In Washington December 20th

Where aren’t you Hugh? TNT has announced that its annual Christmas in Washington special will be hosted by Hugh Jackman. The holiday concert special will air on December 20th at 8:00 p.m. (Et/Pt), and will feature some very special performers, including: Anna Kendrick, Sheryl Crow, Backstreet Boys, and more.

This has long been one of my favorite holiday traditions, and has offered up some of the most entertaining performers, and all-around enjoyable evenings for years.

That tradition continues (well, quite frankly, I’m not a fan of Backstreet Boys) this year with not only some great performances, but you can’t go wrong with Hugh Jackman running your show, whatever it is. Right? I can’t wait for Sheryl Crow, Anna Kendrick is a surprisingly awesome singer, and you don’t want to miss Pat Monahan.

Catch all the info below, and let me know if you’ll be tuning in.

About Time – The Review

Time to make another trip to movie “rom-com” land once more. Now let’s keep a stiff upper lip, since it’s set in jolly ole’ England, which as Roger Miller’s song says “swing like a pendulum do”! Okay, what are they offering across the pond? Seems they’ve tossed a big dollop of fantasy into the mix, namely time travel! Well that’s been used before in an effort to get couples together, from the McFly saga to Time After Time and Kate And Leopold. What if I tell you this new flick is from Richard Curtis the droll, witty writer behind Notting Hill and Four Weddings And A Funeral. Oh, and this is his third directorial effort after Pirate Radio and the cult classic Love Actually. Hopefully that will pique your interest. Enough background info, let’s talk about his latest. Hey, it’s About Time.

New Girl Season-Premiere Recap: Down in Mexico

  • Vulture
New Girl Season-Premiere Recap: Down in Mexico
If you binge-watch the first two seasons of New Girl in three weeks like I did (causing all my sweaters to break out in polka dots), the series plays like an extended romantic comedy wherein Nick and Jess, two friends who drive each other crazy, realize they are (plot twist) crazy about each other. Here’s another unexpected twist: Despite my better judgment, I am as all-in on their relationship as they are. We have this romantic notion that the affection that transpires between two dissimilar people constitutes an especially meaningful attachment. Realistically, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s characters in You’ve Got Mail are probably too different to coexist in a healthy romantic way. Not to mention the chasm separating Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal’s points of view in When Harry Met Sally. And are you shitting me with Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman in Kate and Leopold?

This Mutant Life #22: 'Wolverine' Director Says All The Right Things

Expectations are a terrible thing to have, because they inevitably end up disappointing the person idealistic enough to imagine that anything might be good, ever. I'm being a little sardonic, but it's triply true for the foolish of us paying attention to comic book movies before they come out, when the primordial soup of possibility allows our inner fanboy to foresee wild, desperate highs of creative adaptation and post-Nolan brilliance.

Obviously, this never happens. Expect Terry Gilliam's "Watchmen," and end up with Zack Snyder scoring slo-mo sex with "Hallelujah"; expect Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, and end up with a mute, fleshy surgery victim in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." Expect Darren Aronofsky's take on Logan's lonely sojourn to Japan, and end up with the director of "Kate and Leopold."

But there's tangible proof for optimism to rear its head, rather than remaining a dreamy projection of what could be. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly,

'Wolverine' Draws From The Source Material Says Director James Mangold

We continue to hold onto cautious optimism and enthusiasm when thinking about and anticipating the release of "The Wolverine," especially when we keep hearing about potential X-Men cameos and positive endorsements and such.

And today we have new excitement to pore over from director James Mangold, via a lengthy interview with EW's CapeTown in which he addresses following Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's original storyline and playing with Wolverine's vulnerability and emotional baggage.

"A lot of that story and a lot of beats from that saga are in there — and a lot of characters," Mangold said about including the Claremont/Miller source material. "Without being religious about it, I think it’s a very admiring adaptation. Obviously when you’re adapting anything you make some changes. But all the characters are there – Yukio, Viper, Mariko, Shingen, and Logan obviously. The whole cast of characters that exist in that world exists in our film.

The Hobbit wins box office. Les Miserables and Django Unchained neck and neck.

It’s frightening sometimes how accurate the math can be. Before this year, there were only a handful of movies that have opened on a Christmas day that happened to land on a Tuesday over the last decade (Ali and Kate and Leopold in 2001, Alien vs. Predator: Requim, The Great Debaters, and The Waterhorse). Ali, AvP2, and the Denzel Washington drama The Great Debaters were pretty front loaded ($10m/$34m and $9.5m/$26m, and $3.5m/$13m respectively) while the smaller films (Kate and Leopold and The Waterhorse: Legend of the Deep) had smaller opening Christmas days but longer legs over the six days ($2.5m/$17m and $2.3m/$16.7m). I use these prior examples because the three major wide releases this weekend pretty much matched up those patterns to a tee. So when I tell you that Les Miserables opened on Christmas Day to $18 million but did “just” $28 million for

Kate & Leopold

Kate (Meg Ryan) is a career-driven market researcher in Manhattan who has given up on love. Her last boyfriend Stuart (Liev Schreiber) was a physicist who found the secret to time travel and traveled back to 1876. Unfortunately, he accidentally brought back Leopold (Hugh Jackman), the Duke of Albany and inventor of the elevator, with him, and now Leopold is falling in love with Kate. In almost every way, Kate and Leopold shouldn't be right for each other. Leopold is a man out of time, and Kate is an independent New York woman. Even if anything happened, Leopold would have to go back to 1876 at some point. Are they forced to go their separate ways forever parted by time, or do they find a way to be together?

Real Steel’s Hugh Jackman Talks Boxing Bots

  • Comicmix
Hugh Jackman stars in Real Steel, out on home video this week, and the native Australian is best known to ComicMix fans for his work as Wolverine in X-Men, X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand before spinning off into X-Men Origins: Wolverine and cameoing as the canucklehead in X-Men First Class.

In the fall of 2009, Jackman made a return to Broadway in the Keith Huff-penned A Steady Rain.

On February 22, 2009, Jackman took on the prestigious role of hosting the 81st Annual Academy Awards live from the Kodak Theater, he wowed those in attendance and helped ABC score a 13% increase in viewership from the previous year. Previously, Jackman served as host of the Tony Awards three years in a row, from 2003-2005, earning an Emmy Award for his 2004 duties at the 58th annual ceremony and a nomination for his 2005 appearance at the 59th annual ceremony.

Movie Review — Real Steel

“Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots” get their day on the big screen in Real Steel, a movie that transcends the one-joke premise and is instead a heartwarming, fist-pumping mechanized fairy tale of a father and son coming together amid some of the baddest technology you’ll ever wish was really available. Not to bad for a few plastic robots from the 60s.

Okay, so Real Steel isn’t based on the old game you played with and trashed back when you were a kid, it’s actually based on the story “Steel” by the amazing and incredible Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, Hell House, Nightmare at 20,000 Feet). But the storyline sure quacks like a toy robot: it’s sometime in the not-too-distant future, a time where boxing has ditched humans and amped up the amazeballs factor by using robots. Big, powerful, amazing robots, that are controlled/worked by human handlers and treated like superstars.

'Wolverine' Director Is 'Phenomenal,' Says Hugh Jackman

by Aubrey Sitterson

After three “X-Men” movies and a prequel, filmgoers are beginning to recognize what comic book fans have known for years: Wolverine is, and forever will be, the coolest member of the superhero team. Of course, it certainly doesn’t hurt that the character is played by none other than Hugh Jackman.

The breakout star of the first three movies (“X-Men,” “X2: X-Men United," and “X-Men: The Last Stand”), Wolverine is one of Marvel Comics’ most popular characters. Born a mutant with superhuman senses, an incredible healing factor and a set of three claws on each hand, the character underwent an experimental medical procedure that grafted an unbreakable metal to his skeleton, as seen in the prequel “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”

Since the 2009 release of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” there has been consistent talk about a follow-up film featuring the near-feral mutant. By the following year, Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan

"The Wolverine" Finally Gets A Director

James Mangold ("3:10 to Yuma," "Walk the Line," "Cop Land," "Identity") has emerged as the top choice of both 20th Century Fox and Hugh Jackman to direct "The Wolverine" says the trades, effectively ending one of the more drawn out searches we've ever reported on regarding a director.

Negotiations are about to get underway with Mangold to take the job which "Black Swan" director Darren Aronofsky departed from in March. Mangold ultimately beat out Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior") and Antoine Fuqua ("Brooklyn's Finest") for the gig. Shooting aims to kick off this Fall.

Christopher McQuarrie penned the script which is set predominantly in Japan. Jackman previously worked with Mangold on "Kate and Leopold" while the helmer directed last year's Fox summer tentpole "Knight and Day".

James Mangold Will Direct The Wolverine

I’ve always been extremely impressed with James Mangold’s career. Go ahead, try to pigeonhole him. Bet you can’t. Here’s why: he started his career with a small indie drama in “Heavy”, turned that into a gritty crime film in “Copland”, spent time in romantic fantasyland with “Kate and Leopold”, went Western in “3:10 to Yuma”, musical biopic with “Walk the Line”, then pure action-adventure in “Knight and Day”. Basically, the guy Has no genre. James Mangold directs what he wants to direct, and he’s proven that he can pretty much direct anything as long as he has the interest. Now it appears James Mangold has an interest in taking on a big-time comic book movie, because Deadline is reporting that Mangold has been chosen by 20th Century Fox and star Hugh Jackman to replace Darren Aronofsky on “The Wolverine”, the sequel to the studio’s

Exclusive: James Mangold Circling Jake Gyllenhall's "Namath"

  • Pajiba
James Mangold has quietly worked his way up the Hollywood A-list in recent years. He started out strong, with Cop Land and Girl, Interrupted, hit a couple of snags (Kate and Leopold, Identity, a great movie until the disastrous ending), and then picked up steam again with Walk the Line and 3:10 to Yuma, the latter of which may be the pinnacle of the man's career. It if is, he'll have nothing to be ashamed of. Mangold is back in theaters this summer, helming the Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action-comedy Knight and Day (which I've got a summer movie boner for), and the list of projects on his plate, which already includes a feature based on the documentary Murderball and a Dusty Springfield biopic, is growing.

You can add Namath to that growing plate, so says The Hollywood Cog. We haven't heard much about Namath in a couple of years
