L.M. Kit Carson, the Texan film legend best known for David Holzman's Diary, has passed away at the age of 73. For Filmmaker Magazine, Vadim Rizov gathers some valuable insight from Fabrice Aragno, the cinematographer of Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage. Eric Hynes provides an excellent and authentic New Yorker take on Gangs of New York for Reverse Shot's Martin Scorsese Symposium. Above: we're disappointed to hear that Paul Schrader's latest film has been essentially taken out of his hands—in response the filmmaker has disowned the picture. For Film Comment, Violet Lucca interviews Ruben Östlund about his acclaimed film, Force majeure:
"Lucca: Like your previous work, Force Majeure is intended to foster a philosophical debate about what human behavior means or implies. Do you envision that being more of an internal process, or do you want people to talk it out?
ÖStlund: Yeah, in a group. »
Actress Laurie Holden has moved on from killing zombies on television to fighting sex traffickers in real life. The former Walking Dead star was recently involved in an undercover sting operation in Colombia to take down a notorious sex trafficker. According to ABC News, the mission, dubbed Operation Underground Railroad, was the creation of former CIA and Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard, who recruited "a ragtag group of volunteers" that featured two CrossFit instructors from Utah, a door-to-door salesman, and Holden, who portrayed "Andrea" on The Walking Dead for three seasons. »
Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow released the first official poster for next summer's highly-anticipated action-packed sequel, which comes with the tagline, "The Park Is Open." With the release of this one-sheet, can the first trailer be coming soon?
We reported last week that a trailer was recently screened for random moviegoers at a Regal Cinemas movie theater, with YouTube user Ivan Flores posting a detailed description of the footage. The video was later blocked by NBC Universal, which lead many to believe his description is accurate.
Production wrapped on the adventure back in August, and it should be only a matter of time before we see the first footage. It's worth noting that Universal Pictures has two upcoming movies hitting theaters, Ouija on October 24 and Dumb and Dumber To on November 14, so it's possible the trailer may be released then.
Now that it's episode #301 it feels like we are starting all over again, but I think we have a good one for you to begin as we listen to Shia Labeouf tell a story to Jimmy Kimmel about his arrest after a performance of "Cabaret", we talk more about Gone Girl as to who should be blamed for what took place, complain about Burger King and cable prices, talk new DVDs and Blu-ray, answer your questions, play some games and much more.

Jim Carrey is set to host Saturday Night Live Oct. 25 ahead of the Nov. 14 release of Dumb and Dumber To (the sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber). "Fancy" rapper Iggy Azalea will be the musical guest. Carrey last hosted SNL in 2011, but got his start in sketch comedy years before when he starred on In Living Color throughout its five-season run in the early '90s. Since then, Carrey's gone on to win two Golden Globes -- one for The Truman Show, the other for Man on the Moon - and snag six Golden Globe nominations total for his work both in comedy and drama. »

At one time, it was almost unheard of for a sequel to be made beyond five years after the original (or the previous entry) came out. In recent years, we’ve had many franchises being revisited after several decades, as well as there being other old film series due to be revived soon. Is this becoming a new trend, and if it is, is it a good idea? Does it help or hurt the business?
Everyone on the planet probably knows by now that a seventh Star Wars movie is coming out in 2015. Episode Seven will mark a 10 year gap between the last entry, Revenge of the Sith, and the new film. We also have a Jurassic Park sequel due out in 2015, which will make a 14 year gap since 2001’s Jurassic Park 3. Eddie Murphy is planning to bring back Axel Foley for a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie. There »

Thanks to its nearly 19 million subscribers, the Smosh channel is among the most efficient mouthpieces for brands looking to reach a young audience. Previously, Smosh has partnered with everyone from Ubisoft and Sun Drop, and the channel's latest branded video promotes Dumb and Dumber To. Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox have released a music video and launched a contest to support the upcoming sequel to The Farrelly Brothers' 1994 comedy classic. The music video is called "Your Dumb. I'm Dumber" and it begins with a reenactment of the original Dumb and Dumber film's most memorable scene. Once Padilla and Hecox complete their Jim Carrey and Lloyd Bridges impressions, they segue to a music video, where they list a bunch of dumb things their respective characters have done. At the end of the video, a voiceover from Padilla explains that the Dumb and Dumber video is an introduction to a contest leading »

Vancouver - It's no wonder that Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and James Franco finish each other's sentences. The former two grew up together in Vancouver, have collaborated on scripts since they were 12 years old. Rogen produced and co-starred in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," which filmed 10 years ago; it also cast James Franco, the first of many creative starts for the two of them. For 2013's "This Is The End," Goldberg and Rogen co-directed, Rogen and Franco co-starred -- the same as the setup to forthcoming comedy "The Interview." "Basically until [Sony Pictures] saw 'This is the End, we didn’t know if they’d let us direct another movie," Rogen explained. "So, once they saw it, they decided they would let us direct another movie." Goldberg and Rogen headed back home to Vancouver to shoot much of this action-oriented flick, with the story set mostly in North Korea. Franco with them -- »

A pair of new TV spots for a couple of this year's major Oscar contenders appeared over the weekend, the first for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman, the second for Dumb and Dumber To, bringing back Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. I actually caught the Dumb and Dumber To spot during "Saturday Night Live" this weekend and I got a few chuckles, but I feel I already know how it's all going to end, which makes me wonder if knowing the "ultimate" punch line spoils the entire thingc I mean, you all remember this scene from the first Dumb and Dumber rightc As for Birdman, it will be playing the New York Film Festival shortly where even more people will gush all over it as we await its October 17 release. I managed to avoid the slobbing of Gone Girl over the weekend as I see it tonight, »

Universal Pictures just unveiled a TV spot for its upcoming "Dumb and Dumber" sequel, called "Dumb and Dumber To," which brought back Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Check it out below. The new movie takes place twenty years after the original film and focuses on Lloyd (Carrey) and Harry (Daniels) in search for Harry's daughter in order to get a kidney from her. Rob Riggle, Kathleen Turner, Laurie Holden, Cam Neely (played Sea Bass in original) and Brady Bluhm (played Billy in 4C in original) co-star, while Jennifer Lawrence and several other celebrities are expected to make cameos. "Dumb and Dumber To" is once again directed by the Farrelly brothers and is set to hit theaters on November 14th. TV Spot: »
Universal’s aspirations to capitalise on the huge success of Dumb And Dumber have manifested twenty years after the fact. It’s commonplace for sequels to land the green light on the back of a successful box office run. In this case, the $247 million worldwide gross it netted only bagged the comedy a poorly received prequel in 2003. Jump another decade on, and the follow-up to the Farrelly Brothers 1994 gross-out chuckle fest, Dumb And Dumber To, is now mere weeks away from release.
While you may have already seen the first trailer, there’s still reason to check out this new TV spot to see exactly what Harry and Lloyd have been up to since we last saw them. Leaning heavily on the “if it ain’t broke” mantra, the sequel looks like it could be a very funny companion piece to their first adventure.

Twenty years after its release, “Dumb and Dumber” will finally see its sequel open in theaters. Harry and Lloyd will re-team for an unexpected sequel and the return of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey in the starring roles. The sequel film will be released during the holiday season in 2014 and will surely see some healthy competition at the box office. The “Dumb and Dumber” franchise has seen some highs and lows over the last two decades since the first film was released. A prequel film titled “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” was released in 2003 to very little fanfare and critical response. An animated series from Hanna-Barbera [ Read More ]

Light week of movie watching this week as I'm celebrating my first wedding anniversary this weekend in Whistler, but I did end up seeing the new Liam Neeson movie A Walk Among the Tombstones and at home I saw Dumb and Dumber and watched half of Top Gun. Otherwise, I will have to get back into full swing this coming week as I really need to get back to my "Best Movies" columns and I've also got a lot of people that wrote in wanting to write for the site and some great candidates are bubbling to the top, possibly opening up the site to a few new voices in the coming days. With my week out of the way, let's hear from you. What did you watch this weekendc Any of you manage to see The Guest or The Dropc I chose Tombstones over The Maze Runner, the latter »

We've spent months gorging on galaxy-traveling guardians, giant toy robots and angry lizards, ape-populated planets and a genetically enhanced Scarlett Johansson. Now that summer is basically over, we are expected to go from fluffy to heavy, and prepare ourselves for a season of prestige pics, biopics and soon-to-be Oscar picks. Yes, there are some popcorn movies coming out between now and December — a new Hunger Games entry, a long-awaited Dumb and Dumber sequel, the final chapter of Peter Jackson's Hobbit franchise — but for the most part, the fall is »
It’s an understood rule of comedic actors that they can all do drama, as well. Comedy is harder, of course. But then not every comedic actor is truly an actor. Not every comedic performance is about more than good line readings and having the necessary timing to tell a joke. Stand-up comedians often get starring gigs on sitcoms, but that doesn’t mean they’ll wind up with an Oscar nomination someday. (Sorry, Sinbad.) Those who do end up with Academy recognition are those who were always set to shine on the big screen and wound up on TV as a short little detour along the way. Jennifer Lawrence, for example. And Tom Hanks. And Leonardo DiCaprio. But there are also former TV comedy stars who do great work in dramatic movies and never garner Oscar attention, and then they have to go back and do a Dumb and Dumber sequel. There »
