Watch a trailer for 'Birdman Returns' starring Riggan Thomson

7 November 2014 12:16 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Birdman is not what it sounds like. It's not about a superhero; it's about a man trying to stage a Broadway play, and employs magical realism to takes aim at the Hollywood and theater communities. However, that man, Riggan Thomson, once played a character called Birdman, and now Fox Searchlight has made the trailer for one of his blockbusters: Birdman Returns.  The trailer appropriately looks like a relic of 1992 down to the bad picture quality, and Fox Searchlight fashions the video's YouTube page as a #Tbt. It reads: "in 1992, Riggan Thomson makes box office history in Birdman Returns. It will »

'Birdman Returns' Trailer: Michael Keaton Spoofs 'Batman Returns'

6 November 2014 4:20 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the Fox Searchlight hit indie Birdman, Michael Keaton plays a washed up actor named Riggan Thompson, who was a major star in the early 1990s when he starred in the blockbuster Birdman movies. While the movie itself doesn't include any fake footage for this movie-within-a-movie, Fox Searchlight has taken it upon themselves to celebrate Throwback Thursday (Tbt) by creating a fake trailer for the 1992 "sequel" Birdman Returns.

Birdman helped propel Riggan to international stardom, but just four years later, he ended up pulling out of Birdman 4 as his career came screeching to a halt. The actual film Birdman chronicles Riggan as he tries to mount a comeback by putting on a Broadway play.

Humorously enough, this trailer states that Birdman Returns "debuted" in 1992, the same year Warner Bros. released Batman Returns, starring Michael Keaton as Batman. The Birdman Returns release date listed in the trailer is May 22, 1992, which would »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

'Edge of Tomorrow' Review: Should You See the Tom Cruise Blockbuster?

6 June 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As you've probably heard, "Edge of Tomorrow" has been blowing critics' minds. It's easily one of the most fun films of this summer blockbuster season. This latest sci-fi/action/whizbang movie to star Tom Cruise has a ton going for it -- plenty of action, great effects, a clever storyline, and committed performances from the leads, along with assured orchestration of all these elements from a well-regarded director.

But, wait, I hate Tom Cruise!

First of all, you shouldn't hate the guy. Beyond the lunatic antics on talk shows, there's not a performer out there who seems more committed to doing whatever it takes to give wide audiences a fun experience at the cinema. As a film nerd I can applaud his work with Kubrick in "Eyes Wide Shut," but at the same time I can celebrate his more visceral thrills brought out via a slew of "Mission Impossible" films, »

A Psychiatrist Analyzes Mad Men’s Michael Ginsberg

13 May 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“I think a therapist would have a field day with someone like Michael Ginsberg,” actor Ben Feldman told Vulture yesterday, following his nipple-mutilation episode of Mad Men. To which we said: challenge accepted! Psychiatrist Dr. Paul Puri has analyzed Mad Men characters for Vulture before (see here, here, and here), though prior to Sunday night, none of them had been literally wheeled out of the Sc&P office in a gurney. Ginsberg’s total psychotic break can be read as a metaphor for the breakdown of American society in 1969, but how does it read from a medical perspective? We spoke with Dr. Puri about schizophrenia, castration metaphors, and Ginsberg’s likely prognosis (which is actually not so bad).Let’s begin at the beginning: Ginsberg had a rough start in life. He was born in a concentration camp.Everybody says he was born in a concentration camp because of that speech in “Far and Away. »

Sports Networks’ Crazy Math: Even More Games You Don’t Care About Watching

6 May 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Pac-12 Network recently announced plans to increase its annual package of live events to 750 this year and 850 next, which certainly sounds impressive.

At least, until you realize less than 25% of those telecasts will involve college football or men’s basketball, the two so-called “revenue-generating” sports, whose popularity makes the investment in lesser lights like golf, rowing and baseball possible.

As noted in a recent column, beyond the obvious cost pressures raised by the crazy proliferation of regional sports networks devoted to specific franchises is the fact most of these channels are essentially worthless, in ratings terms, at least half the year.

The same problem applies to those regional titans backed by Time Warner Cable, the Lakers’ TWC Sportsnet – which saw the team make an uncharacteristically early exit from the playoff picture this year – and the Dodgers’ SportsNet La, which, like Pac-12 Network, remains at an impasse with one of »

First Teaser Poster for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

6 May 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Far and away one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar sees the renowned writer-director return following the epic conclusion of his The Dark Knight Trilogy two years ago.

So anticipated is the movie that Warner Bros. and Paramount were willing to partner up on distribution, and after launching an awesome teaser trailer at the tail-end of last year, the studios have now released the first teaser poster, ahead of the first full-length trailer, expected to arrive shortly.

Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway top a very promising cast, joined by Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, David Oyelowo, David Gyasi, »

10 Underrated Films From Major Hollywood Stars

13 March 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Summit Entertainment

Once an actor makes it to the big time, their entire filmography is usually under intense public scrutiny. There’s a reason they are famous worldwide and command massive salaries — audiences are willing to watch anything they have their name attached to. But somehow, there are always projects with famous actors that never seem to get the attention they deserve. There are a number of reasons for this — maybe the film was made on a low budget, and didn’t have enough money to mount a widespread promotional campaign. Maybe the critics just didn’t get it at the time, or it was simply deemed less significant than some of their other work,  their merits are overlooked in favor of films that won Oscars or made a lot of money.

Most A-listers have at least one or two of these films floating around, overshadowed by their blockbuster work. »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"12 Years a Slave"

What's It About? Based on the memoir by Solomon Northup, "12 Years a Slave" stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free man who was kidnapped from his home in New York and sold into slavery. Northup ends up on a plantation run by the cruel Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender) and his equally awful wife (Sarah Paulson), who take special delight in tormenting another young slave named Patsey (Lupita Nyong'o).

Why We're In: The movie took him Best Picture Sunday night -- see director Steve McQueen quite literally jump for joy here -- for good reason. Nyong'o took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her wrenching performance, and John Ridley won for his adapted screenplay.
