It’s A Bad Day At The Office In New Banner Poster For Horrible Bosses 2

20 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In cinema, the comedy sequel is a peculiar beast. Unlike those found in other genres, follow-ups to those films that strike to tickle the funny bone are often less bigger, bolder and darker and more, well, disappointing.

Whether it’s continuations of Airplane, The Hangover or even the widely-derided Grown Ups, history has taught us that a comedy sequel can be a tough nut to crack. But come November, Sean Andres will look to avoid those pitfalls with Horrible Bosses 2 — the follow-up to 2011’s surprise ensemble hit.

Reuniting Nick, Dale and Kurt — aka the world’s unluckiest Average Joes — Horrible Bosses 2 will see the trio try to break out on their own by setting up a business. Of course, things don’t go quite according to plan after a conniving investor (played by Christoph Waltz) double crosses them. Joining Waltz as a newcomer is Chris Pine, while Kevin Spacey, »

Quicksilver Concept Art For X-men: Days Of Future Past

19 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

Brad Pitt Facts: 35 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Fury' Star

17 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Since breaking out over 20 years ago in "Thelma & Louise," Brad Pitt has been difficult to miss.

After landing his place in cinematic history as a hunky (and shirtless) criminal, Pitt's career blossomed with starring roles in critical and box office hits alike, such as "A River Runs Through It" (1992), "Seven" (1995), and "12 Monkeys" (1995) -- just to name a few. In the past two decades, Pitt has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but his role has expanded beyond just acting. In only the past few years, he's produced two Best Picture nominated films, "Moneyball" (2011) and "12 Years a Slave" (2013). This fall, he's back in front of the camera leading his battle-hardened platoon into Nazi Germany in "Fury."

From his early days in Missouri to his unlikely romances, here are 35 things you probably don't know about Brad Pitt.

1. Brad Pitt was born December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, Oklahoma to Jane Hillhouse and William Pitt.

2. His mother was a school counselor, »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Interview with Shawn Ashmore

14 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Almost 15 years ago, X-Men helped bring the superhero genre to life with a blockbuster adventure that showed comic book characters could bring in big crowds at the box office. After hit sequels X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand, 20th Century Fox returned to the past with 2011's X-Men: First Class, which took the action back to the 1960s. While many thought the original trilogy characters' time was over, those many were quite wrong, with both the past and present coming together in the summer blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, now available on Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD.

I recently had the chance to speak with one of the original trilogy cast members Shawn Ashmore, who returns as Bobby "Iceman" Drake in director Bryan Singer's hit superhero adventure, which took in nearly $750 million worldwide during its theatrical run this summer. Take a look at our conversation below, »

Satanic Sunday: Ranking Portrayals of the Devil

5 October 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s hard to nail down the personification of the ultimate evil. The Prince of Darkness deserves to be more than just a cackling, dark figure in the background or an over-the-top sleaze.  This is an angel who has been cast out of Heaven and carries a major grudge. Neglecting the depth of his pain or not seizing the opportunity to have a little fun in the exercise of his machinations is always a problem, with no discernible representation able to strike a perfect balance yet. The best contemporary performances on film leave something to the imagination and twist our perception of the iconic role just enough to make it seem fresh or threatening. What follows is a list of cinematic Satans that have made an indelible impression, ranked from worst to best.

Chris Pine Fight Clubs Himself In New Horrible Bosses 2 Trailer

1 October 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Horrible Bosses was one of the best box office hits of 2011. A tight, well-written, well-performed, and hilarious comedy – the film hit that glorious sweet spot where all the necessary elements come together to create gold. Given that the movie recouped most of its budget in its opening weekend, it was not surprising to hear that a sequel was being planned – although fans were worried that another outing may burst that bubble of success by pushing the concept too far. How often can three guys clash so disastrously with unpleasant senior management? Those worries proved unfounded, as the plot for Horrible Bosses 2 takes that original concept, and spins it on its head – as detailed in the official information about the project:

“The follow-up to the 2011 hit comedy Horrible Bosses reunites Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as everyone’s favourite working stiffs: Nick, Dale and Kurt.

Benicio del Toro Talks About Playing One of the World’s Most Notorious Criminals

26 September 2014 11:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Looking relaxed and much leaner than his latest screen incarnation as the  heavyweight, disheveled drug lord, Pablo Escobar,  Benicio Del Toro arrived at the San Sebastian Film Festival  on Friday to collect the festival’s Donostia Award for Lifetime Achievement ,in an upbeat ,playful , mood.

“Well, it’s an honor,” Del Toro said of the Donostia Award, “Because Its the first time I’ve been given a career award and also because it comes from the San Sebastian Festival which has for many years been the festival I have enjoyed the most.”

Born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, the son of lawyer parents, Del Toro grew up in Pennsylvania and made his way through New York and L.A. drama schools before landing bit parts on television.

Se7en.s John Doe Was First Offered To This Oscar Nominee

22 September 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Kevin Spacey plays an incredibly important role in two of the best twist endings in modern filmmaking. In Bryan Singer's thriller The Usual Suspects he transforms in an instant from the limping Verbal Kint to the ultra-smooth Keyzer Soze, and in David Fincher's Se7en he's revealed as being the psychotic, bible-influenced serial killer known only as John Doe (who also, we learn, has cut off Gwyneth Paltrow's head). Spacey plays both parts completely effortlessly and brilliantly, and there's little question that the moments are memorable in large part because of his performances. But did you know that it was almost someone else in the latter role? With his new film Gone Girl set to hit theaters soon, director David Fincher recently took part in a BAFTA event, and during the proceedings he revealed that the John Doe role in Se7en was almost played by Ned Beatty.

Kevin Spacey's Stalker Gets Four Years in Prison, Apologizes

22 September 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Boston (AP) - A Massachusetts woman who threatened to blow up, torture and castrate Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey in what prosecutors called a "persistent and malevolent" cyberstalking campaign has been sentenced to more than four years in prison.

Linda Louise Culkin, 55, of Quincy, was also ordered by a judge Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Boston to pay Spacey $124,000 to compensate him for the bodyguards he hired during the two-year stretch when she harassed him.

Culkin was credited with time served since her arrest in January 2012, meaning she has about 18 months of the four-year, three-month sentence left.

She pleaded guilty in November to charges including mailing threatening communications, and sending false information regarding explosives.

Culkin had in her apartment a picture of Spacey with his eyes blacked out and mouth scribbled out and multiple copies of a page entitled "Killing Kevin Spacey," authorities said.

Spacey was not in court for the sentencing, »

Lambasted Elba and Henson Thriller Going Unpunished to Top Domestic Box Office Chart

14 September 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'No Good Deed' movie going unpunished to top weekend box office? (photo: Idris Elba in 'No Good Deed') Apologies for the bad wordplay above, but if Friday estimates are a reliable indicator, No Good Deed should indeed go unpunished to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, September 12-14, 2014. But why "unpunished"? Well, so far the Sam Miller-directed thriller starring four-time Emmy nominee Idris Elba (Luther) and Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has a downright putrid 10% score and 2.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes' top critics. Sony Pictures, whose subsidiary ScreenGems is distributing No Good Deed, reportedly opted to skip late Thursday screenings to ensure that the film's plot twist would be kept under wraps. More likely, however, it was the critics' derisive remarks that Sony wanted under wraps. For instance: "The final plot twist »

The Essential Films and TV to Stream – September 8th 2014

8 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.
