North Korea Files Un Complaint Over The Interview

11 July 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s safe to say that The Interview was never going to do big box office in North Korea. The upcoming comedy – written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Dan Sterling – features a plot centred around an attempt to assassinate the country’s current leader, Kim Jong-un. North Korea has been increasingly vocal in their opposition to the film, and have now filed an official letter of complaint with the United Nations.

In the film, Seth Rogen stars as a TV journalist, whose producer is played by James Franco. On discovering that the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, is an avid viewer of their show, they manage to arrange an interview with him, in an attempt to improve their shambolic status within the journalistic world. Their plan is soon hijacked by the CIA, however, when they recruit the two to assassinate Kim Jong-un. As with their previous film – This Is The End »

Spotify Reveals Each State's Most-Played Patriotic Song For Fourth of July

4 July 2014 4:21 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

God Bless America! Music streaming site Spotify released a list of what patriotic jam each state will most likely listen to this Independence Day based on past years, and you guessed it, Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" is a favorite from coast to coast.  Also in the mix is Miley Cyrus' jam "Party in the USA" and Team America: World Police's song "America F--k Yeah." Hawaii, naturally, chose The Beach Boys' "Surfin' USA." Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's rendition of "America the Beautiful" also made the cut. [...] »

Spotify Assembles Map of Every State's 4th of July Song

4 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What's Independence Day without music? Whether it's a Sousa march, or simply a repeated, tone-deaf "U-s-a!" chant, Americans love adding music to a holiday, and the 4th is no exception. Paul Lamere, director of developer platform for the Spotify subsidiary The Echo Nest, has crunched some numbers and put together this list of the top 4th of July songs by state, along with this excellent patriotic playlist of all the tunes. Lamere started with a massive pool of music included in the thousands of playlists on Spotify with "Fourth of July" in their titles. "That set of songs is this really funny mix, »

North Korea threatens war over forthcoming film

26 June 2014 4:54 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

It's meant to be a spoof spy movie with Seth Rogen and James Franco as two journalists who travel to Pyongyang and are then recruited by the CIA to assassinate Kim Jong Un, but North Korea today issued a statement calling The Interview "the most blatant act of terrorism and war." Waring that it "absolutely will not be tolerated," the isolated dictatorship threatened "a merciless counter-measure" if the Us does not ban it.

Noting that the film had originally been intended to focus on Kim Jon Il (a man whose love of cinema once prompted him to keep his favourite director prisoner and force him to make monster movies), Rogen responded "People don't usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they've paid 12 bucks for it."

The North Korean reaction mirrors that attending the release of Team America: World Police ten years ago. »

Kim Jong-un Threatens War with the Us if Seth Rogen and James Franco's 'The Interview' is Released

25 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, if controversy sells movie tickets I think Seth Rogen and James Franco have hit the jackpot as North Korean dictator and Dennis Rodman's best friend, Kim Jong-un, has threatened "merciless" retaliation on the USA if the comedic duo's The Interview is not banned. The film, described as an action-comedy features James Franco as tabloid journalist Dave Skylark, who, along with his "Skylark Tonight" producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen), have landed an interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un (Randall Park), a self-proclaimed fan of the show, in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un. The latest statement from North Korea was issued by state-run Kcna news agency, in which the foreign ministry spokesperson said: "The act of making and screening such a »

North Korean Dictator Denounces 'The Interview' Starring Seth Rogen and James Franco

21 June 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a pretty predictable move, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has condeemed the new comedy The Interview, from This Is the End directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Rogen stars in the film alongside James Franco as a TV producer and a talk show host who team up to kill the ruler on his own turf under the guise of a televised interview. Kim Jong-un claims the movie shows the "desperation" of American society.

That doesn't mean Kim Jong-un won't watch the comedy. A spokesperson for the dictator confirms that the dictator will be first in line when the movie opens in October.

This is what Kim Myong-chol, executive director of The Centre for North Korea-us Peace and an unofficial spokesman for the regime in Pyongyanghad, to say about the delicate situation.

"There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the Us government and American society. »

'The Interview' teaser finds Seth Rogen and James Franco as Spies Like Us in North Korea

12 June 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Seth Rogen's career has been on something of an upswing over the past year. [We're not gonna call it a comeback, because "Green Hornet" wasn't that much of a disaster. Creatively? Sure. Box Office? Not as much as you'd think. Now, "The Guilt Trip"? That might be a different story. If only it had been R-rated but, we digress…] The 32-year-old actor, writer and director scored a huge hit with "This Is The End" last summer and followed it up this spring with one of his biggest triumphs, "Neighbors," which is still scoring big laughs in theaters.  The latter was actually Rogen's directorial debut alongside longtime writing partner Evan Goldberg. The prolific duo are already back with another unexpected comedy, "The Interview." This action comedy actually reunites Rogen with another big screen buddy, James Franco, and centers on a popular TV host and his producer who are recruited by the CIA to assassinate North Korean dictator for life Kim Jong-un.  Sony Pictures released the first teaser today which gives you a sense of the flick's irreverent and possibly darker tone.  It's not necessarily something you'd expect for a Rogen comedy (although maybe that's just »

Paul Rudd And Danny McBride Join Animated Sausage Party, Which Will Feature A Filthy “Food Orgy”

2 June 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Animated films for adults are an inherently tricky proposition, and so very few of them ever get made. In fact, only South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut and Team America: World Police really come to mind, though the Ralph Bakshi films did find success way back in the ’70s. Still, the small-screen success of Family Guy, Futurama, South Park and Archer has proven that there is some appetite for witty, raunchy animation. So that’s why there’s hope for Sausage Party, Seth Rogen’s animated raunchfest, which has been building a pretty stellar voice cast and sounds, ahem, intriguing.

Paul Rudd and Danny McBride just hopped on board the project, which also includes the voices of Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, David Krumholtz, Nick Kroll, Michael Cera, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Bill Hader and Anders Holm. I haven’t seen such a jaw-dropping line-up of »

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 30-21

11 May 2014 9:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we continue on, I need to once again clarify that if this list was “Joshua Gaul’s 50 Favorite Movie Musicals,” it’d be a quite a different list. But, if my tastes determined what is definitive, I’d be asking you all to consider Aladdin as a brilliant piece of filmmaking and wax nostalgic about my love for Batteries Not Included and Flight of the Navigator (not for the musicals list, of course). Much to my dismay, my tastes are not universal. I’d like to think my research methods are.

Octavia Spencer Cast As One Of Las Madres

10 May 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We don’t see enough of Octavia Spencer in comedy. She has continually and carefully mixed things up throughout her career – appearing in TV dramas such as ER, The X Files and CSI: NY, before taking home an Oscar for 2011’s The Help – but, she is also a gifted comedic performer. She has previously showcased those skills in most notably in Dinner For Schmucks, 30 Rock and Mom – but now she gets to really stretch those funny wings as one of the three leads in the upcoming Las Madres.

In joining this movie, she will star alongside the already cast Leslie Mann, who is riding a wave of box office success created by the recent double-whammy of Rio 2 and The Other Woman. Mann – gifted at comedy herself – had long been biding her time in small supporting roles in films such as The Cable Guy, Big Daddy and The 40 Year Old Virgin, »

9 May 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier this week, we learned that Leslie Mann had been set to lead a new comedy at DreamWorks called Las Madres. Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Scouts vs. Zombies) wrote the original script being rewritten by Pam Brady, a producer and writer for "South Park," who also scripted Team America: World Police. The story follows a trio of unemployed friends (presumably all female since the title is Spanish for "The Mothers"), who try beat tough tough times by becoming bounty hunters and chasing a criminal with a big reward for his capture. Now Variety reports that Oscar winner Octavia Spencer is on board. Read on! This will be Spencer's first straignt-up comedy since winning an Oscar for her supporting role in The Help in 2011. Since then, she's turned in supporting roles in Snowpiercer, Paradise, Fruitvale Station and Smashed, plus a quick turn in the fantasy adventure Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. »

The top 50 assholes in cinema

24 April 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Andrew Blair 25 Apr 2014 - 06:29

They're despicable, smug and downright unpleasant. Andrew lines up his pick of 50 biggest unpleasant, sometimes heroic folk in cinema...

Nb: This article contains swearing and spoilers for numerous films. Bear in mind that it may be not safe for work, and if you haven't seen a film mentioned in a particular entry, do consider skipping to the next one.

Conflict drives drama. Unpleasant people create conflict. Thus, cinema is crammed with huge, provocative arseholes/assholes (we went with the latter on the headline, but now we're in the article, we're going more arse than ass). There are obviously too many to list, but we've provided you with a thought-provoking array of multi-faceted bell-endery. That said, feel free to copy and paste the phrase, "Nice list, but you forgot x" to save time when placing comments below! The 'nice' bit is not compulsory.

James Bobin interview: Muppets, Alice 2, Statham

We talk to the director of Muppets Most Wanted, James Bobin, about the film, about Alice In Wonderland 2, and about Jason Statham...

Heading into UK cinemas today is the brand new Muppets movie, Muppets Most Wanted. Directed once more by James Bobin, he spared us some time to talk about working with The Muppets, the complexities, the preparation, the bits that were cut and more. Here's how it went...

Mild spoilers for Muppets Most Wanted lie ahead...

The Muppets continue to popularise quite an old fashioned craft. More than just puppeteering, too. What are your feelings on it? Because my understanding of doing a Muppets film is that the preparation is arduous, the shoot is arduous, the post-production is a little bit lighter?

It is to a degree, but remember too that in post we have to deal with the fact that they »

Olympics recap: Jeremy Abbott's a phoenix, plus the slopestyle boys at their 5 most precious moments

14 February 2014 2:14 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There are many candidates for Thursday’s Olympic Stud of the Day, an EW.com tradition dating back to the 2008 Summer Games that honors the athlete who was the night’s biggest/coolest badass. The U.S.’s Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy, and Nick Goepper swept the inaugural men’s ski slopestyle event — a feat the U.S. has only accomplished twice before in Winter Olympics history. Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu became the first male figure skater to ever score above 100 points for a short program. Zhang Hong was the first Chinese speed skater to win long-track gold. But we »

George Clooney Pranks And 6 More Fascinating Subjects Matt Damon Touched On During His Ama

6 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Apart from Jimmy Kimmel, I.m not sure there.s anyone in the world who doesn.t like Matt Damon. He.s just such a genuine guy, and on top of it, he.s got a sincere talent for both acting and writing. Altogether, it.s a very pleasing combination for fans, and not surprisingly, his Ama only continued those good vibes today. The actor didn.t dispense as many batshit crazy stories as Bill Murray or Robin Williams, but he was open, honest and highly engaging. He talked on a wide variety of subjects, and if you have the time, I highly suggest you check out the entire Ask Me Anything. If you just want the cliff notes, however, you can scroll below for 7 of the more fascinating things. The Team America: World Police portrayal didn.t bother him. He was confused by it initially, of course, but after »
