Michelle Rodriguez is clarifying her comments about minorities playing traditionally white superhero characters. Hours after “The Fast and the Furious” actress slammed Hollywood for casting actors of color in roles originally conceived as white, she issued an apology. “I stuck my foot in my mouth once again,” Rodriguez said in a video posted on her Facebook page. “I have a tendency to speak without a filter, sorry about that.” Also Read: Michael B.

She sings, she dances, she's on the American Idol judging panel and, on the odd occasion, she acts. Considering the super-busy Jennifer Lopez only makes a film once every couple of years (her last screen outing was 2013's second-tier Statham vehicle Parker), you'd think she'd be a little more discerning in her choice of roles. After watching the abysmal Boy Next Door, that red-hot breakthrough in Out of Sight feels firmly out of mind.
Her latest has aspirations to be the kind of slick and stylish adult thriller popularised in the '80s and '90s, but ends up imploding thanks to a clunky script, off-key performances and a tone that swings wildly between ultra-serious and camp comedy. If Gone Girl was the perfect example of how to make »
Congratulations are in order for Vin Diesel and his girlfriend! The Fast and the Furious actor is expecting his third child with model Paloma Jiménez. The stars already have two kids, 4-year-old Vincent Sinclair and 6-year-old Hania Riley. In a previous interview, the private dad opened up about his daughter's birth and said that his costar Paul Walker encouraged him to be in the delivery room: "I say to Paul, 'You know, should I be in the delivery room, or how's that going to work?' And he says, 'You know, so many guys will tell you, "Don't do it. . . . You can't stomach it. . . . You'll never look at the girl the same," [but] it's the best thing you'll ever do in your life.'" Vin will definitely be an entertaining dad to his third child. After all, he can serenade anyone and pull off some awesome dance moves to Beyoncé. Congrats to the happy couple! »
Joseph Kahn is one of the most accomplished and ambitious directors working in the music video and TV commercial industries. To date, he’s also made two feature films, with extremely different results. The first of those pictures, Torque, is almost an art object, the result of a filmmaker who isn’t interested in popcorn spectacle making the most ridiculous motorbike action movie you can imagine. It might well be to The Fast and the Furious what Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain is to a urinal.
And then there’s Detention, a film Kahn made ‘outside of the system.’ It’s a teen time travel horror movie – sort of. It’s also a head-first dive into pop culture ephemera. I’ve seen Detention at least a half dozen times in the last three or four years, and now I’m writing about it, I’m tempted to go get the Blu-ray »

Talk about a change in momentum! For months, 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot seemed dead in the water — in no small part because the studio had given us almost no information about it. After all, we’ve been trained to follow superhero-movie publicity cycles that offer a steady drip of tantalizing details and images as much as a year before the flicks hit screens. The Fantastic Four (complete with a definite article, à la The Fast and the Furious or The Wolverine), by contrast, had spawned almost no confirmed and fleshed-out details since its casting announcements. We were left with vicious rumors about a troubled production plagued by clashes with the studio and riddled with questionable plot choices. (Dr. Doom being some kind of hacker? Hoo, boy.) But our information drought abruptly came to an end last night, and now we’re flooded with details, footage, and ideas »

Title: The Boy Next Door Director: Rob Cohen (‘The Fast and the Furious’) Starring: Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Ian Nelson, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth The initial observations into a person’s seemingly well-meaning actions and decisions can be deceivingly unreliable, as people can often be skillfully hiding the actual motivations behind their true intentions and feelings. The new independent thriller, ‘The Boy Next Door,’ intriguingly sets out to prove that first impressions aren’t always the right ones, as people often harbor darker secrets and intentions as they strive to achieve their true ambitions. The film, which was directed by ‘The Fast and the Furious’ helmer Rob Cohen, brilliantly features a [ Read More ]

“Nobody bats 1,000,” Lopez told Seth Meyers on Wednesday night as critics were preparing to pan her new thriller
While TheWrap‘s Inkoo Kang wrote “Lopez is far and away the best thing about the film,” she ultimately joined the majority of the critics panning this weekend’s wide release from Universal Pictures by concluding it’s “neither good nor bad, nor campy nor scary enough to be in any way memorable. »

“It wasn’t actually so clear in the original script. It was just like one line that said ‘intimate scene,’ or ‘sex scene,'” Guzman says during...
“One of my commercial agents actually reached out to my manager saying that Jennifer Lopez wants me to do a table read,” Guzman said. “I, of course, thought it was a prank so I hung up … quite a few times.”

Director Rob Cohen is an old hand at straightforward genre product, with a career that stretches from “Miami Vice” to “The Fast and the Furious,” and he helms the Jennifer Lopez starrer “The Boy Next Door” with the passionless precision of a filmmaker who knows the territory. That might not sound like a fatal flaw, but frankly, a hack might almost have been preferable here, injecting this silly, somnambulant thriller script about a schoolteacher who falls for a psychotic teenager with some sort of panache, distinction or perversion, or even some kind of memorable incompetence to liven up its assembly-line paces. January releases don’t get much more January than this, but given its reported $4 million budget, “The Boy Next Door” shouldn’t have too much trouble finding its way into the black.

The film mostly focuses on Lopez herself — a decision that robs it of the symbiosis of fear and attraction that makes an erotic thriller...
In the last two decades, the once-disreputable genre of the erotic thriller has improbably gone arthouse, resulting in critically lauded but largely unseen indies like last year’s “Under the Skin” and “Stranger by the Lake.” A throwback to such racy but scolding Adrian Lyne movies as “Unfaithful” and “Indecent Proposal,” “The Boy Next Door” returns the mainstream erotic thriller to the multiplex, but its thin T-shirts and thinner characterizations fail to make a convincing case for the genre’s resurrection. »

Nineteen-year-old Noah (played by 27-year-old Ryan Guzman) has moved in next door to Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez), apparently to care for his shockingly decrepit looking uncle who's in need of a bone marrow transplant. After fixing Claire's garage door, befriending her son and proclaiming his love for the "classics" (Claire teaches classic literature at the local high school), he eventually, and rather forcefully, woos Claire into having sex with him. You see, Claire is vulnerable, her husband cheated on her and now she can't decide whether or not she's going to go back to him or just screw all the local teenagers. After her first dip in the teenage pool it seems she's decided that's a bad idea, but Noah isn't too keen on letting her go that easily. "Let the games begin," he tells her before peeling off in his truck. Oh, let them begin indeed! Directed by Rob Cohen, »

This weekend, Rob Cohen’s psycho-sexy thriller, The Boy Next Door, arrives in theaters. It stars Jennifer Lopez as a middle-aged woman who gets entangled in a dangerous affair with her younger neighbor (Ryan Guzman) as she struggles to make her marriage work with her philandering husband (John Corbett). As you may expect, things take a dark and deadly turn once Lopez’s character realizes that escaping into the arms of a younger man isn’t going to solve any problems- it just ends up creating more.
During the recent press day for The Boy Next Door, we heard from Lopez, Cohen, Guzman and Corbett about their experiences working together on the project (which was also co-produced by Blumhouse Productions), the challenges they faced during their tight shooting schedule, how they dealt with the film’s climatic sex scene and more.
