Spike Jonze to Guest Star on HBO's ‘Girls’

20 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Spike Jonze and “Girls?” What took so long? The writer-director-producer will guest star on the hipster Brooklyn-set series on the upcoming fourth season, a network representative told TheWrap. HBO is keeping the role pretty secret, though reportedly Jonze will play a character named Marcos. Also read: ‘Girls’ Star Allison Williams to Play Peter Pan for NBC Live Musical Jonze came into his own back in the 90s, a fixture among the Beastie Boys crew and director of several of their videos.

DVD Review – Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa .5 (2014)

21 July 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Grandpa .5, 2014.

Directed by Jeff Tremaine.

Starring Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, Jeff Tremaine and Catherine Keener.

Synopsis:

A behind-the-scenes documentary on Bad Grandpa with over 40-minutes of never-before-seen footage.

Ever heard of a .5 movie release? I certainly hadn’t. It’s basically a “glorified behind-the-scenes doc with unseen footage,” my understandably frustrated Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen informed me, on the fifth time of me asking “But Why All Da Talking Headz!?” The amusing thing was, when I first began watching the film, it took about a quarter-hour for either me or my housemate to question whether this was the theatrical release. Some of that confusion comes from the cinema verite-style of Bad Grandpa itself, the rest speaks of the “glorified behind-the-scene’s doc’s” quality.

Whereas the theatrical release used the loose plot of Irving Zisman (prosthetically portrayed by Johnny Knoxville) and his grandson Billy’s (Jackson Nicoll) road »

Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa .5 Review

17 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Ever since Jackass’ inception back in 2000, the crew have filmed more gags, skits and pranks than they actually have room for in the movies, which means a lot of footage never makes the final cut. For whatever reason, they were deemed not funny enough, not clever enough or just plain uninteresting. But to make use of this material and ‘give the fans what they want’, they started releasing the .5 movies, which are nothing more than glorified making of documentaries talking about the footage that was not good enough for the final product.

Last year saw Jackass depart from their usual stunt mentality to create their first movie-of-sorts with Jackass Presents Bad Grampa and, now following tradition, they’ve giving us Jackass Presents Bad Grampa .5 – and it’s exactly what you’d expect: a glorified making of that would be a special feature on any other DVD.

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 14th 2014

14 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.

I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 Blu-ray Review

7 July 2014 8:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The problem with alternative comedy cuts is fairly self-evident: they’re made up of footage deemed less than what was actually released. Thus by their very make-up, they are less funny than whatever original preferred version preceded them.  Bad Grandpa .5 makes a valiant attempt to overcome these short-comings (at least for the first half) by being less a collection of unused footage and more a behind the scenes making of.  Hit the jump for my Bad Grandpa .5 Blu-ray review.  The behind-the-scenes first half tends to be the stronger section of Bg .5. Here – there’s a focus on the beginning of the “sixty-day” shoot with Johnny Knoxville admittedly less-than-enthusiastic in the early going. We watch as Knoxville undergoes the torturous make-up process to become the titular “Bad Grandpa”: Irving Zisman. This is intercut with the various incarnations of Irving over the course of each Jackass film. It’s interesting to »

New Blu-ray DVD: 'Bad Grandpa.5,' 'The Raid 2'

7 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Jodorowsky's Dune"

What's It About? Cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky's vision for a "Dune" movie was beyond remarkable; it was truly epic. Pink Floyd, H. R. Giger, and Mick Jagger were just a few of the names attached to the film - until it imploded. This is a documentary about a sci-fi film that was ahead of its time and the visionary behind it.

Why We're In: Tons of interviews, behind-the-scenes details, storyboards, and more make this a must-see for art house, midnight movie, and film history fiends.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Point Blank"

What's It About? Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson star in this cool crime drama about a thief who's out for revenge on the dude who double-crossed him. Mel Gibson's "Payback" was based on the same novel, "The Hunter" by Donald E. Westlake, but that shouldn't deter you. »

9 movies that prove why nostalgia isn't always a good thing

Remember that thing you loved from your childhood? It's coming back. We're not talking specifics here, we're talking everything.

New movies or TV shows revolving around everything from Scooby Doo to Ninja Turtles, Danger Mouse and Bananaman are on the horizon - you could accuse producers of running out of new ideas, but how long before they run out of old ideas?

Nostalgia can give you a warm and fuzzy feeling, but sometimes it isn't always a good thing. Digital Spy suggests 9 instances when looking back to the past resulted in a questionable present:

A movie adaptation of popular TV series The Saint had been mooted for some time. It finally limped into cinemas in 1997 with Val Kilmer as Simon Templar - he was no Roger Moore, but let's face it, who is?

Watch: Spike Jonze & Johnny Knoxville Visit A Sex Therapist In Clip From 'Bad Grandpa .5'

4 June 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“We had some really great footage that we just couldn’t include because it didn’t work with the story. A lot of things felt out, a lot of characters," Johnny Knoxville said last year about material cut from the hit "Bad Grandpa." "Spike Jonze played an old lady named Gloria. We had really funny stuff with Gloria but we couldn’t use it. Same with Catherine Keener, she played my wife and we couldn’t use that. There’s so much on the DVD and we are also doing a whole separate release next year with all the bits and how we made the movie, but I’m not sure how are we going to call it. We usually do 'Jackass 2.5' or 'Jackass 3.5,' so it might be 'Bad Grandpa .5.' ” And well, true to his word, "Bad Grandpa .5" is coming, and yes, Spike Jonze »

No big deal.

You can own "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5" on digital June 3 and DVD July 8. Let the mayhem begin. »

Paramount Taps ‘Jackass’ Impresario Johnny Knoxville To First Look Deal

19 May 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Breaking: Paramount Pictures has signed Johnny Knoxville and his Hello Junior banner to an exclusive 2-year first-look deal. This comes after Deadline revealed that he was brought in to voice Leonardo in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and it follows a long string of hits with the studio in the Jackass films and Bad Grandpa. Those Jackass films have earned $336 million globally and Bad Grandpa did just over $150 million worldwide. With the possible exception of Jackie Chan (who does all his own stunts), no actor has sacrificed his body and absorbed more onscreen punishment than Knoxville did in those Jackass films.  Chan never took a paintball shot or numerous other projectile objects to the nutsack, which I recall seeing Knoxville do so often, in the name of comedy. Or been upended by a raging, charging bull, or been knocked unconscious by the over-sized boxer known as Butterbean, in a clothing store. »

Halle Berry Will Star In Kidnap

15 May 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing, and the marketplace is packed with many high profile projects being packaged up for international sales. One such package, announced today, is Kidnap – a movie that will star Academy Award winner Halle Berry in the lead role.

Directed by Luis Prieto (Pusher), the film follows a woman dealing with the abduction of her young son, stopping at nothing to get him back home safely. Described as a female version of Liam Neeson’s Taken movies, Kidnap is written by Jackass alum Knate Gwaltney, and produced by the legendary Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformer: Age Of Extinction).

This is an intriguing prospect for several reasons. Firstly, when provided with the right material, Halle Berry can turn in a compelling performance. She is an Oscar winner, after all. It’s unfortunate that the right material doesn’t seem to find its way to her very often, »

Best and Worst of Joel McHale's White House Correspondents' Roast

4 May 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I gotta be honest: I hurt for Joel McHale during his White House Correspondents' roast. It takes a great deal of courage for a comedian to get up in front of any crowd, but when you're performing for the President and a host of the world's most powerful people, it's a whole other ball game. And if I'm being frank, it was a little bit painful to watch (full video below). It's not that the jokes were weak, necessarily (though a lot of them were), but that once things started going south McHale seemed totally incapable of winning the audience back and instead chose to rush through the remainder as quickly as possible. Still, let's cut him some slack: there were definitely a few good lines in there. Below you can find my (charitably balanced) roundup of his best and worst moments. Worst: "I think [Obama] is one of the all-time great presidents, »
