Earlier this year we saw the engaging, if not so engagingly titled, Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus and 2012 one of two films by Chilean director Sebastián Silva about graceless Americans abroad. Where the loose, mumblecore-ish druggie farce Crystal Fairy was enjoyably scabrous, its companion piece Magic Magic, again starring Michael Cera, is a shapeless mess. Juno Temple (always watchable, often weird and she's certainly both here) plays fragile Alicia, travelling outside the Us for the first time, and lapsing into disturbed panic when she falls among less than sympathetic travelling companions on a Chilean island. Silva drums up a vague mood of hovering balefulness but the result is neither effective psycho-horror nor a full-blooded indie improv exercise. But the cast, including the director's brother, Agustín Silva, is good, and as a sneery narcissist, the »

With 4/20 coming around this Sunday, we could have easily given you a list of all the reasons that Super Troopers has become one of the greatest "stoner comedies" of all time. Instead, we decided to chat with all five of the Broken Lizard guys to let them tell you all about this little film they made nearly 15 years ago and how it turned into the cult classic it is today. Spark it up, cinephiles! It's oral-history time.

So, we guess this makes it really official (sad face)? E! News has confirmed that nearly a year and a half after announcing their split, Will Arnett has filed for divorce from Amy Poehler. Arnett filed the papers in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, and is asking the court to award Poehler and him joint physical and legal custody of their two sons Archibald and Abel, according to documents obtained by E! News. The pair revealed that they were separating in September 2012 after nine years of marriage. The Parks and Recreation star and the Arrested Development alum have collaborated on several projects together, including Blades of Glory, Monsters vs. Aliens and Horton Hears a Who!.

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.
With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.

I think that there’s a rule in Hollywood that movies that start with the word “American” must have amazing ensemble casts (see: American Hustle, American Beauty, American Pie, American Gangster, American Graffiti). This week, the action-comedy American Ultra adds three new members to an already bustling line-up: Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman and Arrested Development‘s Tony Hale. They join Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Justified‘s Walton Goggins, Topher Grace and John Leguizamo in a film for Project X director Nima Nourizadeh.
The low-budget Lionsgate movie, picked up for a cool $7 million in March, stars Eisenberg as Mike, a stoner and slacker living in a small town whose past as a highly-trained secret agent comes back to interfere with his new, quieter existence. He becomes the target of a top secret government operation, which naturally does not sit well with his girlfriend, Phoebe (played by Eisenberg’s Adventureland co-star, Stewart »

Last night.s MTV Movie Awards were flooded with the stars of today, the movies of tomorrow, and the decisions of yesterday.s Nickelodeon Kids. Choice Awards voters. (Spoiler alert: Leo got snubbed Again and apparently it was the Academy.s loss that Catching Fire wasn.t nominated for anything.) But to kick off the entire night.s festivities was none other than host Conan O.Brien in a madcap dash to capture 50 celebrity cameos. THR has the video you see above, and according to their write-up, it was all done in three weeks. Directed by Troy Miller (Arrested Development, Deadbeat), the opening was filmed with a lot of efficiency, and equal parts luck. Luck that included dealing with factors like Adam Sandler being in Dallas, Martin Scorsese being in New York, and their last cameo (Academy Award Winner Lupita Nyong.o) signed the dotted line on Saturday.

It's rare that Peter Travers reaches back in time to highlight a film on At the Movies, but he's got a good reason for this unprecedented move. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened last week, is already the biggest movie to ever hit theaters in April and it'll likely take the top spot at the box office for the second straight weekend.
School can be a tough time for many people – especially if you’re in a Us high school film and not among the popular crowd. Arrested Development/Scott Pilgrim’s Mae Whitman is about to have that experience, entering negotiations to star in The D.U.F.F.Adapted from Kody Keplinger’s coming of age tome by Josh A. Cagan, The D.U.F.F. focuses on a high school senior who has her world rocked when she learns that she has been labelled the Designated Ugly Fat Friend, the one who never quite matches up to her prettier, more popular pals.In a drive to combat this obnoxious stereotype, she kicks off an attempt and re-invention, and leads her fellow D.U.F.F.s in a campaign to challenge the school’s chilly evil queen. Evil in this case being the smug, self-satisfied leader of the popular set, not an »
"Someone just told me that the show seems to be getting exponentially better, which is scary," admits Veep's showrunner Armando Iannucci. Wait…why, exactly, would a high compliment like that be considered frightening? "Because by Season 10, it'd be terminally unwatchable! Viewers would see 30 seconds of an episode and then they'd expire en masse, in a state of ecstatic bliss."
To be fair, there have been moments in the first two seasons of this HBO comedy about the Beltway backstabbers, boobs and buffoons that circle the President's second-in-command (played to »
Lonergan said Tuesday that Cera, whose credits include Arrested Development, Juno and Superbad, and Culkin, of Igby Goes Down and Cider House Rules, will bring the play to Broadway in the fall after a stop this summer at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company. All three will be making their Broadway debuts.

When Marvel announced Joe and Anthony Russo would be directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, reactions were mixed. Sure the pair had worked on some awesome TV shows like Arrested Development and Community, but movie-wise Welcome to Colinwood and You, Me and Dupree didn’t exactly scream “superhero.” Then we saw the new movie. Instantly it […]

Today in bizarre-yet-awesome news, a Redditor has found what appears to be evidence that George Michael Bluth and Maeby Funke had a love child -- and she's not too bad looking.
The "Arrested Development" characters -- played by Michael Cera and Alia Shawkat -- were cousins, and only kissed a couple times (it wasn't as creepy as it sounds, honest!), though they did end up getting married in one season three episode (unbeknownst to them; still not that creepy, we swear!). Now, Redditor your_doppelganger has unearthed a portrait by Spanish artist Ignacio Zuloaga that bears a striking resemblance to both Cera and Shawkat.
The painting, of a woman known as Doña Carmen Arconada, was completed in 1940, well before "Arrested Development"'s 2003 debut, so obviously Zuloaga wasn't inspired by Maeby and George Michael's showmance. But it's still pretty amazing just how seamlessly the portrait's subject is a blend of »

If you have already seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier, stop reading this and press play (or download) on the appropriate button below. If you are yet to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier, move along, nothing to see here. But bear in mind that we spoke to the directors of the Marvel sequel, Joe and Anthony Russo, so once you have seen the film, you'll need to come back here as soon as possible.As well as half an hour with the Community and Arrested Development veterans, there's also a 45 minutes of Team Empire talking about the film in rather nerdy detail, from the credit stings to the bad guys; Black Widow to The Falcon. In other words, get downloading (or get playing) straight away, or [Spoilers] will get you. P.S. You can check out our podcast photo gallery here and subscribe to the Empire Podcast via our iTunes »
Chicago – If the original is anything to applaud, the sequel usually isn’t. And even more rarely is the sequel actually better.
While it’s aggressive to market “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as one of the “best superhero movies of all time” and more realistic to pitch it as “better than ‘The Avengers,’” it most certainly is 2014’s best action flick yet and it definitely defies common sequel disappointment.
When I think back on “Captain America: The First Avenger” three years ago, I recall it being just fine. I snoozed through a bit of it, I was somewhat underwhelmed by a lot of it and I remember leaving thinking I just got more of the same Hollywood blockbuster formula.
I wasn’t surprised, blown away or boldly thrown off guard by twists and turns I couldn’t have expected. A scrawny nobody gets a high-tech government serum and »
