The rise and subsequent decline and fall of Lance Armstrong always had a cinematic quality. An American archetype of Shane-like proportions, he was a cancer survivor, champion cyclist, Dodgeball cameo-er and, at a push, could even pull off yellow. Then it all went up in a puff of smoke. Stephen Frears' new movie The Program will explore all of those elements (apart from maybe the Dodgeball bit), with Ben Foster playing this compelling figure. And here is the actor as centrepiece of the film's newest promo.Adapted from sports journalist David Walsh’s book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong, the film will follow the cyclist’s meteoric rise, battles with cancer and equally fast fall once it was proved that he had been using performance-enhancing drugs during his successful years.Frears has Chris O’Dowd playing Walsh, with Ben Foster as Armstrong. From the looks of the trailer, »
If you were a fan of Nickelodeon's "All That" in the '90s, you probably couldn't get enough of Lori Beth Denberg! The actress' most infamous skit was "Vital Information for Your Everyday Life," where she spouted off hilarious advice like "If you're on time, that's good. If you're on fire, try yelling "Aaaahhhh!!!" If you're itching for more of her sarcastic humor, you're in luck! The now-38-year-old star made a cameo with "Lizzie McGuire's" Lalaine in Raymond & Lane's latest webisode called "Guns N' Daffodils." Check out the clip below to see these two back in action! So, what has Denberg been up to since her stint on Nickelodeon? After Lori Beth left the show in 1998, she went on to play Lydia on "The Steve Harvey Show" from 1998-2002.

We've arrived at Roger Moore's penultimate Bond. But isn't it about time somebody fought Octopussy's corner?
After the comedown of For Your Eyes Only, the series is back on a high. A very good-natured, occasionally thrilling escapade that boasts an impressive roster of villains, a finely developed heroine, unusually meaty roles for series stalwarts General Gogol and Q, a nuclear bomb and a gloriously stupid title. Yes, Roger Moore has aged to the point where counting the wrinkles is a legitimate distraction. And many valid criticisms can be levelled about plot and credibility. But the good outweighs, or certainly overwhelms, the bad in Octopussy. Still, he really should have quit after this one.

Production has begun in Boston on the action comedy Central Intelligence, for New Line Cinema and Universal Pictures. The film, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, will be directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, director of the hit comedies “We’re the Millers” and “Dodgeball.”
The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.

It is a well-known fact here at Thn that I’m somewhat a fan of Firefly. The sci-fi western starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk combined a great world, intriguing narrative and some utterly brilliant characters with a typically snappy Joss Whedon script. What’s not to love? Who knows, but Firefly was cancelled after a limited run in 2002, despite its Browncoat army of fans protests.
Since the show’s farewell movie Serenity, Joss Whedon has successfully assembled The Avengers on the silver screen already and is overseeing the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while it’s cast has been busy on films like I, Robot, Dodgeball and Wreck-it Ralph, not to mention starring in hit shows Castle, Suits and Homeland. Had everybody moved on and forgotten their love of Firefly and its cast? Of course not!

In the noughties, Vince Vaughn and buddies including Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell could do no wrong, with megahits such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball. But the laughs have dried and the audience withered. What went wrong?
Vince Vaughn used to be funny. Or, more accurately, a surprisingly wide international audience used to find Vince Vaughn funny. The rambunctious persona premiered in Swingers – pure id in a party-hard alpha-male – then recycled in hit films such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball, made him a reliably lucrative booking. But last weekend saw his latest comedy – Unfinished Business, a farce about a work trip which gets out of hand – become the biggest flop of his career so far, with toxic reviews and audience apathy.

Science fiction dream team Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Frozen, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, 42, I, Robot) and Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle, Monsters University, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) are blasting off once again to bring a sci-fi show to life. This time, the former captain and pilot duo are launching a campaign on Indiegogo, the world's largest crowdfunding platform, for a brand new web series titled Con Man. The series is a lighthearted take on the personalities, luminaries, comic book stores, and characters they have run into during their years in the sci-fi community and convention circuit, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans. Fans can contribute to Con Man now on Indiegogo here: Indiegogo.com/Projects/Con-Man. Here's what Alan Tudyk had to say about the project in a statement.
"If you've gone to a sci-fi convention, you've only seen half of it. Con Man »
If you didn’t think those two names together was already awesome, well get ready to get even more excited because the science-fiction dream team Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion are back together and, quite literally, they want you!
The pair who’ve worked on a huge range of fantastic films and series including; Firefly, Serenity, Frozen, I Robot, Monsters University and Dodgeball have now launched their Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for a brand new series Con Man which gives fans an all –access look behind the scenes of the sci-fi community and conference world.
Tudyk and Fillion both had something to say, let’s begin with the latter:
“I’m here to say, ‘Woooo!’ and you can quote me. Let me explain: Alan has, for the entire time that I’ve known him, never failed to impress me with his talent. Don’t think I’m blowing smoke here, »

Christine Taylor (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) has landed a regular role in NBC's single-camera comedy pilot Sharing, from Universal TV and Jimmy Fallon's Eight Million Plus. It is a workplace comedy about the different groups of people working side by side in a shared office space. Taylor will play Polly, who co-owns Open Spaces with her husband Mike (Jerry Minor). She’s effervescent, type-a and no nonsense and wishes her husband would stand up for himself and to… »
Unfinished Business, the latest gross-out comedy from Vince Vaughn, was not press screened for critics in fear that poor reviews would deter people from going to see it. Well, it looks like that didn’t matter all that much.
The movie only managed to pull in a pathetic $4.8 million domestically, and an even worse $2.6 million overseas. With a budget of around $35 million, this is only disappointing news for 20th Century Fox.
This is now the lowest opening of a Vince Vaughn-led comedy movie and yet another disappointing box office performance from the actor following Delivery Man and The Watch. The Internship, with co-star Owen Wilson, did marginally better with $17.3 million, but its far removed from the likes of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story ($30 million), Wedding Crashers ($33.9 million), Couples Retreat ($34.2 million) and The Break-Up ($39.1 million).

The U.S. box office is as glum this weekend as the dystopian future depicted in one of the new releases.
Although off to a soft start, Neill Blomkamp’s robot thriller “Chappie” is No. 1 at the box office, aiming for a lower-than-expected $13 million to $13.5 million this weekend, while the comedy “Unfinished Business” is giving star Vince Vaughn the worst opening weekend of his career.
Sony’s “Chappie” launched to $4.5 million on Friday in the U.S. Blomkamp’s third film is far behind his previous two (dystopian thrillers as well): “District 9,” which opened to $37.4 million in 2009, and “Elysium,” which launched to $29.8 million in 2013.
Made on a modest $49 million budget (financed partly by Mrc and LStar Capital) and shot in South Africa, much like the low-budget hit “District 9,” the Johannesburg-set film could do better business overseas as it opens simultaneously in 53 markets, including the U.K., Germany, »
