Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, The Godfather: Part II), Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), Michael Douglas (Wall Street), and Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda) are out to prove that the fun doesn’t have to stop once you’re in your late 60s (and above) in the first teaser trailer for Last Vegas.
The senior crew heads to Vegas for that quintessential rite of passage: the bachelor party. They’re ready to party like it’s 1959 as they celebrate the last weekend of single freedom for Billy (Douglas). It’s a lot of white hair, laughing, dancing, and drinking. What happens in Vegas will probably stay in Vegas since these guys will likely just forget they were ever there.

Oscar winners Olivia de Havilland and Luise Rainer among movie stars of the 1930s still alive With the passing of Deanna Durbin this past April, only a handful of movie stars of the 1930s remain on Planet Earth. Below is a (I believe) full list of surviving Hollywood "movie stars of the 1930s," in addition to a handful of secondary players, chiefly those who achieved stardom in the ensuing decade. Note: There’s only one male performer on the list — and curiously, four of the five child actresses listed below were born in April. (Please scroll down to check out the list of Oscar winners at the 75th Academy Awards, held on March 23, 2003, as seen in the picture above. Click on the photo to enlarge it. © A.M.P.A.S.) Two-time Oscar winner and London resident Luise Rainer (The Great Ziegfeld, The Good Earth, The Great Waltz), 103 last January »

Los Angeles, April 29: At 82, actor-filmmaker Clint Eastwood, who rose to fame with TV series "Rawhide" and later won the best director Oscar for his movie "Unforgiven", dreams of making films for two more decades.

At 82 years old, Clint Eastwood shows no signs of slowing down. The actor-turned-director's last movie was 2011's J. Edgar Hoover biopic "J. Edgar," starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the former head of the FBI. He then acted in 2012's "Trouble with the Curve," his first role in a movie he didn't direct since an uncredited cameo in 1995's "Casper."
Eastwood joined fellow director Darren Aronofsky for a talk at the Tribeca Film Festival Saturday (April 27). During the discussion, Fox News reports, Eastwood and Aronofsky talked about Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira. The filmmaker, 104 years old, is currently in pre-production on his next movie, "The Church of the Devil." Eastwood expressed an admiration for de Oliveira, saying, "It would be great to be 105 and still making films."
The two directors talked about a wide-range of film-related topics, including how Eastwood gets studios to pay for the movies he wants to direct, citing »
New York — Clint Eastwood may be 82 years old, but he dreams of making films for two more decades.
In a wide-ranging conversation Saturday about the art of film directing, Eastwood expressed admiration for the 104-year-old Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira.
"It would be great to be 105 and still making films," Eastwood said. Chuckling, he called such a hope "the ultimate optimism."
The "Million Dollar Baby" and "Unforgiven" director joined fellow filmmaker Darren Aronofsky for a staged talk at the Tribeca Film Festival following a screening of Richard Schickel's documentary "Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story." Eastwood regaled the Tribeca Performing Arts Center crowd with the accrued, pragmatic wisdom from his late career as an acclaimed filmmaker.

Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may be getting top billing and plenty of attention for their performances in "Pain & Gain," but Anthony Mackie is as much an integral part of the film as his more well-known counterparts. Playing real-life criminal Adrian Doorbal for Michael Bay's latest trip into excess (based on the true-life tale of a Miami crime spree brought to life by a series of Miami New Times articles back in 1999), Mackie has once again added another strong supporting performance to his already impressive resume of work ("Million Dollar Baby," "We Are Marshall," "The Hurt Locker"). Mackie has a busy slate ahead of him, with Bill Condon's "The Fifth Estate" and the crime thriller "Runner, Runner" (which stars Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, and Gemma Arterton) on the way later this year, and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" due out in 2014. But it's "Pain & Gain" that »

Tom Cruise has returned to a strong no. 1 position at the domestic box office, enjoying his biggest North American debut weekend in no less than seven years. According to weekend -- April 19-21 -- actuals found on the web site Box Office Mojo, the Joseph Kosinski-directed Oblivion, based on a graphic novel co-written by the director, earned a highly respectable $37.05 million at 3,783 venues; that figure includes $1.1 million from late Thursday and midnight screenings. The movie averaged $9,795 per theater. (Pictured above: Cruise is back on top in the sci-fier Oblivion.) That is quite an impressive domestic debut, especially taking into account the following: The movie is not a sequel; it is not in ticket-price-boosting 3D; it received very mixed reviews -- among Rotten Tomatoes' top critics, it has a mediocre 53% approval rating and 5.7/10 average; and had strong competition from American TV thanks to the round-the-clock televised hunt for the surviving Boston marathon terrorist. »

Kosinski's Mind-boggling Sci-Fier to Boast Cruise's Biggest Domestic Box-Office Debut Weekend Since 2006?: Tom Cruise is no longer the superstar he used to be -- well, in case you believe the United States and Canada represent the whole world. (More information on Cruise's international b.o. allure further down.) Since J.J. Abrams' thriller Mission: Impossible III back in '06, only one Cruise movie in wide release has opened with more than $25 million at the North American box office: Brad Bird's fourquel Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which brought in $29.55 million on its second weekend (and first in wide release) on Christmas weekend 2011. This weekend (April 19-21), Cruise returns to American and Canadian screens with Joseph Kosinski's "original" sci-fier Oblivion; initial (Friday) results have surpassed studio predictions and, for that matter, the predictions of most pundits.

Sometimes, it takes a familiar face to put a face on a problem ... even one that is international in scope.
Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank is no stranger to championing social causes, and she takes up another as she and "My Left Foot" Oscar nominee Brenda Blethyn play the title roles in the HBO drama movie "Mary and Martha" Saturday, April 20. Written by Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings and a Funeral") and filmed largely in South Africa, the BBC and NBC Universal co-production tells the story of two very different women who unite to crusade against malaria after both lose sons to the illness.
Mary (Swank) is an American who takes her child (Lux Haney-Jardine, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter") away from bullying classmates for an "adventure" abroad, and Martha (Blethyn) is an Englishwoman whose son (Sam Claflin, "Snow White and the Huntsman") volunteers at an African orphanage.

Clint Eastwood will have lost a few Brownie points for his bizarre and frankly ill-advised conversation with an empty chair at the Republican National Congress last autumn, but he is still much-adored Hollywood royalty – old and craggy, but still directing and acting to a phenomenally high standard and responsible as actor and/or director for some of the greatest and most iconic films ever to have come out of Hollywood.
Most often associated with Westerns and understandably so (the Dollars trilogy, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Pale Rider, Unforgiven), Eastwood also has a sterling track record within the crime genre (Dirty Harry, Mystic River, In the Line of Fire, Play Misty for Me) and with straight dramas too (Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, A Perfect World, Changeling). With Oscar statuettes and nominations coming out of his ears, he is clearly much loved by the Academy, but critics and »

Morgan Freeman has almost reached the status of “legendary” actor at this point. The man has given us so many great performances over the course of his career that it’s hard to pinpoint his best work. Films like Street Smart, The Shawshank Redemption, Se7en, Driving Miss Daisy, The Dark Knight and Million Dollar Baby, which finally earned him the Oscar he deserved for the longest time, have more than proven his worth. And he rarely, if ever, disappoints.
Now, with Oblivion, he gets to work in a genre we often don’t see him in: science fiction. We can only say so much about Freeman’s character of Malcolm Beech without giving away some of the movie’s biggest secrets, but you can rest assured that he gives the same great performance we have come to expect from him time and time again.
Oblivion also marks the first time »

Warning: Calling the following piece an "Idiot's Guide" is a bit of a misnomer. You may or may not be aware of what happens in the "Scary Movie" movies, but there's no way you will emerge from reading this a smarter person overall. I just watched all four "Scary Movie" movies consecutively and my brain is currently curled up in a ball shivering in a far corner of my skull, asking what it did to deserve that.
That said, it is true that you will know more about the "Scary Movie" franchise — a Lot more — after having read this piece. We here at NextMovie would hate to see you go into "Scary Movie 5" without having a lick of knowledge about the first four movies. Imagine the embarrassment in front of your friends! "Ugh, you didn't know that The Oracle, played by Queen Latifah in a spoof of 'The Matrix, »

Following in the footsteps of the record-breaking Marvel Studios’ release, "Marvel’s The Avengers," production on the highly anticipated release, Marvel’s "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" has commenced in Los Angeles, Calif., with production also including locations in Cleveland, Ohio, and Washington D.C.

Jackson ("Marvel’s The Avengers," "Iron Man 2") as Nick Fury. In addition, film icon Robert Redford has joined the all-star cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, »

Fans who are eagerly anticipating Marvel's Cinematic Phase 2 (which kicks off with Iron Man 3 next month), will be happy to hear the announcement that production has officially started on Captain America: The Winter Soldier. To go along with that, Marvel has released the first official image and synopsis for the film, which gives some hints about where the film will go. Apparently, Black Widow has more of a leading role this time around...
Outside of the first Iron Man film, of all Marvel's lead-up movies, I think Captain America was one of the better ones. It wasn't perfect, fell into something of a cookie-cutter plot at times, but it was one of the more enjoyable and entertaining comic book movies. So I'm interested to see what comes next, and how they'll move the Captain into the mordern day following the events of Avengers.
