The 'American Pie' Dad Was Originally Way, Way Creepier (Video)

17 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"It can be fun, but it's not a game... What you want is a partner to return the ball."

You know the lovable father from "American Pie" (1999)? Turns out, he was originally super creepy. The part of Jim's dad, played by veteran actor Eugene Levy, was mostly improvised to give him that "real, corny dad" feel. And thankfully, we still got plenty of amazing -- and awkward -- moments from the goofy patriarch.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Felicity Jones

15 March 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

At last, the question on everyone’s lips has been answered! At least, the Star Wars-related question. The one related to the Star Wars spin-off films. Which were strongly rumoured amidst the news that Disney had bought the rights to George Lucas’s space opera franchise of diminishing returns, and finally confirmed a while ago now.

Then the slow drip of news came through, with American Pie and The Golden Compass’s Chris Weitz in line to write one of the multiple spin-offs, and Godzilla director Gareth Edwards all set up to direct. That was all anyone knew, however, with the rumours as to their plots being everything from a Young Han Solo story to a bounty hunter team up.

Now there’s been some further official word: Weitz is writing Edwards’ film, it’ll be called Star Wars: Rogue One, and it’s going to star British actress Felicity Jones. »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Alyson Hannigan

9 March 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Born on the 24th March 1974 (making her forty years old, can you believe that?!), in Washington D.C., Alyson Hannigan is the daughter (and only child) of Emilie Haas, a Jewish real estate agent, and Al Hannigan, a truck driver with Irish ancestry. Her parents divorced when she was just two years old and she was brought up by her mother in Atlanta, Georgia as a result.

Hannigan began performing very early – even as a baby she appeared in photoshoots and an instructional video for parenting – and started appearing in commercials when she was just four years old.

After a handful of minor television jobs, she made her first major film appearance in 1988’s My Stepmother Is An Alien, in which she starred alongside the likes of Kim Basinger, Dan Aykroyd and Seth Green – the latter whom played her boyfriend, just like he would go on to do »

New 'Star Wars' Spinoff Writer Says Expect Everything

2 March 2015 12:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off, which will be the first big screen movie in the franchise not to be included as part of a trilogy, is heating up and should start shooting this spring for a 2016 release date. It will go into production at Pinewood Studios in England just as Spectre begins to wrap. As you may know, original screenwriter Gary Whitta was recently replaced by American Pie co-creator Chris Weitz. Now, speaking with /film about his work on Disney's live-action Cinderella, the writer opens up about this first in a long line of planned Star Wars standalone movies, and he tells fans to 'expect everything!'

Chris Weitz doesn't go into specifics about the storyline, but we've heard recently that the movie will either involve a young Han Solo, Boba Fett, space pirates, or a spy mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. In fact, »

Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows

26 February 2015 11:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some of the greatest (or at least heavily favored) American television shows got the big screen treatment when they were selected to have their small screen following turn into a cinematic experience. Unfortunately, for every beloved nostalgic television show that translated successfully in movie theaters (The Brady Bunch MovieStar Trek, Batman, etc.) there are boob tube stinkers that overtake the good crop. Sure, there are middle-of-the-road movie adaptations of television programs that have a mixed bag reception (1997’s Leave It To Beaver, 1987’s Dragnet, 2012’s Dark Shadows, etc.). Nevertheless, it is always the unflattering fare that receive the bulk of the attention (do you register, 1999’s The Wild, Wild West ?).

In Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows we will take a look at the top ten televised offenders that dared to venture into cinema’s stratosphere only to end up floating down shamefully »

10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

Say What? Jason Biggs Will Not Return For Season 3 of "Orange is the New Black"

20 February 2015 10:15 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's official, Jason Biggs will not be returning to "Orange is the New Black" next season! The actor -- who plays Larry Bloom, aka Piper Chapman's (Taylor Schilling) fiance -- has confirmed that he will not be on Season 3 of the hit Netflix show. "They're not focusing on Larry at the moment," he revealed to New York's Daily News. "Larry will not be in season 3. But there's always a possibility he can come back." We have a feeling the "American Pie" star will be back though. The series is based on Piper Kerman's memoir, "Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison," which details Kerman's real-life experiences behind bars. Kerman is married to Larry Smith (who "Oitnb" Larry Bloom's character is based on), so we'd bet that Jason will return ... eventually. What do you think of Biggs' news?

Tara Reid Joins Vine, Immediately Rips Out Her Hair and Fights Off a Fake Shark—Watch Now!

19 February 2015 6:15 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Get ready for lots of 6-second bikini selfies from Tara Reid! The 39-year-old Sharknado star joined Vine Wednesday, and although she is fully clothed in her first two videos, she's every bit as entertaining as she is on her other scantily-clad social media accounts. In her very first Vine, the former American Pie star essentially makes herself into a human Gif, acting out, "When Girls Go to the Hair Salon they be like..." She wails dramatically in the clip as a stylist fusses over her hair. "Ah, you're ripping out my hair," she cries (although if you watch closely, you'll see it's actually Tara playfully removing her own extensions). Tara's second Vine doesn't »

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....

The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!

From Jennifer Aniston's otherworldly pleasure to Jason Biggs's doubly embarrassing shortcomings - here are 10 fantastically farcical orgasms on the silver screen below:

1. Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999)

Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.

Sadly Stifler (Seann William Scott) had previously coerced Jim to set up a webcam in his room so they can all watch the frisky teenage pair, but he unwittingly »

Grandma | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

6 February 2015 11:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Citizen Lily: Weitz’s Character Study Homage to Iconic Lead

Since beginning his directorial career with 1999’s American Pie, Paul Weitz has hovered in an in-between realm of either studio courting mixed or the main stream indie realm, sometimes reaching success, such as with 2002’s About a Boy, but generally languishing in tepid waters with fare like Being Flynn and Admission. He reunites with actress Lily Tomlin, who had a throwaway supporting role in his last feature for Grandma, which superficially contends to be more of the same lackluster output. Fortunately, it becomes quickly apparent that this is definitely Weitz’s strongest work in well over a decade, and gives Tomlin her best material outside of all those delectable Robert Altman titles that are peppered throughout her filmography. A character study that also serves as a familial drama and a topical issue film, its strengths aren’t apparent in every sequence, »
