Paramount and DreamWorks Pictures 2009 Picture Preview

30 December 2008 11:40 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount Pictures has just unveiled their 2009 preview and in rather lackluster form I may say as new images from anticipated features such as Martin Scorese's Shutter Island, Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones and Star Trek were nowhere to be found. Fanboy favorites such as G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen also saw zilch in the updated imagery department. We do, however, have new pics from Eddie Murphy's next kid flick, the previously titled Nowhereland, now labeled as Imagine That and to be honest that is about as exciting as it gets in the updates department. All the cast, director and synopsis information is listed over the course of the next few pages as well as all the release dates for 15 new features. Surprisingly enough, only one of them is actual a Paramount Pictures solo release as the majority of these belong to their previous partner DreamWorks. »

Strangely, Seth Rogen's first film (credited) is Donnie Darko, but since then he has carved out a career in comedy, starring in and co-writing Superbad and Pineapple Express, and the upcoming Green Hornet film. Rogen started out a career in comedy as a stand-up at the age of just 13...

American Film Institute Awards hail top 10 best movies of 2008

14 December 2008 7:48 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The American Film Institute Awards' list of the top 10 movies of 2008 includes lots of predictable favorites like "The Dark Knight," "Wall-e" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," but there are surprising omissions. Among the missing: "Doubt," "The Reader," "Revolutionary Road," "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "The Visitor." "Slumdog Millionaire" isn't cited because it's a foreign production (Britain). The inclusion of two comic book flicks ("The Dark Knight," "Iron Man") and one animated film ("Wall-e") isn't unusual because the American Film Institute Awards usually make an effort to include popular movies that are often left off snooty critics' top 10 lists. In the past, such frat-boyish comedies as "Knocked Up" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" »

Steve Carell Befriends A Beaver Puppet

7 November 2008 1:51 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This may be a step down for Steve Carell. He's gone from working with Anne Hathaway in Get Smart, to starring opposite a beaver puppet. Maybe it's a sexy beaver puppet. Hr says Carell could play the lead in a movie called The Beaver. He'd play a man who walks around with a beaver puppet on his hand, a beaver puppet which he treats as if it's a human creature. The script is described as "whimsical and winning". I'm going to go ahead and also throw out weird. It's being compared to Being John Malcovich meets Lars and the Real Girl, which means it's probably artsy fartsy. It wouldn't hurt for Steve to try his hand at serious acting. He pulled off a lot of that rather brilliantly in The 40 Year-Old Virgin, though it's often overlooked in favor of focusing on the scene in which he smokes pot out »

Ultimate Geek Movie: ‘Fanboys’ Trailer And Poster

6 November 2008 11:11 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

This week, a new trailer and poster for Fanboys hit the internet and it looks like the film will be tons of fun.

Cinematical premiered the brand new poster (as seen on the left) and you can easily see the resemblance to the poster from The 40-Year-Old Virgin. It looks like they’re trying to market the film as an Apatow-style comedy and rightfully so since the cast features many familiar faces from the Apatow crew.

For a higher resolution version of the poster, check out the exclusive at Cinematical.

 

The Fanboys cast features Sam Huntington, Chris Marquette, Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel and Kristen Bell as the leads playing the group of friends. There are also plenty of stars making cameos throughout the film. Some of the notable guest appearances include William Shatner, Kevin Smith, Seth Rogan, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams and my personal favorite; Ray Park.

Review: Zack and Miri Make a Porno

31 October 2008 7:02 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I dig Kevin Smith. Always have. Ok, fine, I didn't think Mallrats was all that funny and, sure, I'd agree with the perpetually self-deprecating director when he criticizes his own "visual style," but I'm no hater. The fact that Smith is just about my age, has a sense of humor that's oddly in touch with mine, and has a background that's eerily similar to my own means I'm always rooting for the guy to succeed. And I think his latest comedy is about to help him succeed big-time.

Although he's been peddling his own brand of potty-mouthed comedy since 1994, Smith seems more or less reinvigorated by the successes of a producer named Judd Apatow. Starting with The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Apatow has written, produced, and/or directed some of the most popular R-rated comedies of the last two decades. Kevin Smith has been doing sort of the same thing, only on »

Bradley Whitford returns to 'Duty'

30 October 2008 8:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Emmy winner Bradley Whitford is returning to NBC as star-producer of the single-camera comedy pilot "Off Duty."

Romany Malco has been tapped as the second lead in the Ums-produced buddy comedy, which has been greenlighted for production following a cast-contingent pilot order in July.

Written by Upright Citizens Brigade comedian Jason Mantzoukas, "Off Duty" centers on a once-legendary police detective (Whitford) on his way down who complicates the life of his new partner (Malco) -- a straight shooter on his way up -- both on duty and off.

American Work's Scot Armstrong and Ravi Nandan will executive produce the project, with Mantzoukas co-executive producing and Whitford producing.

"Off Duty" marks a change of pace for Whitford, who starred for seven seasons on NBC's drama "The West Wing," for which he won an Emmy, and "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip." He is repped by Endeavor, Greenlight Management and attorney Amy Nickin. »

New Promotion For Fanboys

30 October 2008 7:05 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We reported the other day about the Weinstein Company's schedule shift, which has resulted in yet another move for Fanboys, the story of a group of friends who rally together and go on a road trip to sneak a peek at Star Wars: Episode I prior to its release. It almost seems like the waiting for Fanboys has gotten worse than the waiting for The Phantom Menace. The date may have shifted, but the Weinsteins are ramping up promotion for their film. Cinematical has gotten a new one-sheet for the movie, as well as a couple of stills. I love the poster, which offers a Star Wars fanboy twist to the style of poster Judd Apatow brought us with The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. The pictures capitalize on the movie's biggest known assets - Jay Baruchel and Kristen Bell in her Slave Leia costume. After my tirade the other »

Box Office: Zack and Miri and Molly

29 October 2008 5:03 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

The sequels were king this past weekend with High School Musical 3 and Saw V pulling in large groups from wildly different demographics (or at least one hopes so). Last week's other new release Pride and Glory came in with a less than stellar fifth place. Here's the top five:

1. High School Musical 3: Senior Year: $42 million

2. Saw V: $30 million

3. Max Payne: $7.6 million

4. Beverly Hills Chihuahua: $6.8 million

5. Pride & Glory: $6.2 million

We've got two new releases this week hoping to pull in both laughs and shrieks. We've also got a couple expanding into wider release.

The Haunting of Molly Hartley

What's It All About: After surviving a murder attempt committed by her psychotic mother, Molly Hartley tries for a new lease on life at a new private school, but she learns that something truly evil is in store for her on her 18th birthday.

Fan Rant: Utah Jazz Owner Bans 'Zack and Miri'

29 October 2008 9:50 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I will never understand why we're so afraid of sex in this country. It boggles my mind. Not only are we deathly afraid of sex, but we're also afraid of words. Combine a scary word and a film that carries a sex scene or two and you have what some would argue was an act of terrorism. Seriously. Ask Utah Jazz and Megaplex Theatres owner Larry Miller, who is refusing to screen Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno because he feels "it's very close to an Nc-17 with its graphic nudity and graphic sex."

To take a page from Eric D. Snider, who took a page from SNL's Weekend Update ... really? Really, Larry Miller? So you have no problem screening Saw V in your movie theaters and exposing your customers to over-the-top violence and gore, but Zack and Miri is off limits? Really? Seriously? And you'll also »

Kevin Smith on Judd Apatow

28 October 2008 4:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

"I'm thankful for that guy. Nevermind the fact that he brought us Seth Rogen, which I'm really thankful for, but he did shatter that glass ceiling and made my job much easier in terms of, like, trying to get the next one made." -- Kevin Smith on Judd Apatow

Last month, I traveled to Red Bank, New Jersey and enjoyed a very cool lunch with a very cool dude by the name of Kevin Smith. While we scarfed down some tasty Italian food, I recorded roughly an hour and a half of our conversation -- all of which would be way too much to read in one post. Thus, I've decided to break some stuff up into sections and post them separately, then I'll be back with much more in the coming days leading up to the October 31st release of the pretty hilarious Zack and Miri Make a Porno. »
