Mark Wahlberg versus Mark Wahlberg: A tale of two actors

26 June 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many Mark Wahlbergs are there? I ask because I like the guy who showed up in this week's "Ted 2." I like goofball Mark Wahlberg. I like belligerent Boston Mark Wahlberg. I like dancing silly Mark Wahlberg. I like dim bulb but well-meaning Mark Wahlberg. I do not, however, care for "I'm smarter than I look" Mark Wahlberg. I do not like humorless Mark Wahlberg. I do not particularly care for serious action mode Mark Wahlberg. And when I look at the ones I don't like side-by-side with the ones I like, I find it hard to reconcile that this is all one person. So again… I ask… how many Mark Wahlbergs are there? When Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights" was released, it was a breakthrough for the young actor, part of a banner year in his nascent acting career. He had made a few films before that, including »

Quiz: All About Mark Wahlberg

22 June 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

He’s come a long way from his underwear-modelling and times he spent feeling the “Good Vibrations” as the shirtless Marky Mark.  No offense to the Funky Bunch, but we’re glad Mark Wahlberg made the leap from Boston rapper to A-list actor.

The Boston native is ready to hit the big screen with an old pal named Ted.  In Ted 2, Wahlberg returns to the role of John, best friend to the not-so-cuddly Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane).  The comedy sequel sees Ted fighting to prove he's a person in a court of law with best friend John by his side.

Wahlberg has long mixed up his acting roles, appearing in everything from award-winning dramas like The Fighter and The Departed, action flicks like Pain & Gain, and the raunchy comedy Ted, the actor’s highest-grossing movie to date.

How well do you know Mark Wahlberg?  Take the quiz and find out! »

Examining the Jurassic Park 4 script that was never filmed

15 June 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Jurassic World bites a hole in our multiplexes, we compares its events to John Sayles' Jurassic Park IV script from a decade ago...

Nb: the following contains spoilers for Jurassic World.

For Universal, the success of Jurassic World is the $500m pay-off to a story which began well over a decade ago. Work on a third Jurassic Park sequel originally began after the release of Joe Johnston’s coolly-received Jurassic Park III way back in 2001, yet the film languished in a pre-production quagmire as writer after writer seemingly struggled to crack the story.

William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom Of Heaven) was the first screenwriter to step up to the plate, announced at a time when Keira Knightley was reportedly in the running for a major role. Around that time, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough were also thought to be returning to their respective roles of Ian Malcom and John Hammond. »

‘Jurassic World': 5 Key Reasons It Was a Box Office Monster

14 June 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jurassic World” stunned the movie business this weekend with its massive $204.6 million opening.

It’s the second-biggest debut in history and a sign that a franchise that appeared to have run out of gas 14 years ago, when “Jurassic Park III” petered out with $368.8 million at the global box office, has been reinvigorated.

So how did Universal Pictures, the studio behind the dinosaur thriller, pull off the cinematic comeback? Here are five key ingredients in the summer blockbuster’s success:

1.) Chris Pratt is a star. Period.

In an era of would-be leading men like Jai Courtney and Garrett Hedlund, Pratt shows what a true movie star looks like. After “Guardians of the Galaxy” proved he was an actor to watch, with his tongue-in-cheek work as a galactic adventurer drawing comparisons to Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones, “Jurassic World” offers up a second major franchise to stick in his quiver. That’s »

Hyperion: Syfy Teaming with Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips to Adapt The Sci-Fi Epic

10 June 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Syfy is teaming up with producers Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Graham King (The Departed, Argo), and Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Due Date) to adapt Dan Simmons' Hugo award-winning science fiction epic Hyperion as an event series. Itamar Moses (Boardwalk Empire) will write the screenplay and serve as co-executive producer. Holy hell, this is exciting. I've been waiting years for this one. Hyperion is a space opera of the highest caliber and and one of the best science fiction series of all time. Simmons created a universe that is complex, engrossing, often terrifying, and populated by fascinating characters. What's more, Syfy has assembled an excellent team of producers to bring the story to TV. [caption id="attachment_471143" align="alignright" width="230"] Image via Doubleday/Bantam Books[/caption] I'm intrigued to find out how they will handle the unconventional narrative of the books - the first is told in a series of vignettes introducing the characters, while the second installment, »

How Steven Spielberg Helped Save Jurassic World

9 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Steven Spielberg doesn’t need Jurassic World to be a mega hit. We all know Mr. Spielberg has plenty of money. What’s another cent mean to Spielberg? Admittedly, his name has been on some projects that appear more monetary-driven, but that’s not the case with Jurassic World. If that wasn’t true, then we wouldn’t have waited almost 14 years for the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise. Spielberg took his time with this one. Even when he had such talents as William Monahan (The Departed) and John Sayles (Lone Star) involved in writing the fourth film, the legendary director didn’t move forward. Not until two or three years ago did the right story come along. The director behind Safety Not GuaranteedColin Trevorrow, and his co-writer, Derek Connolly, presented Spielberg’s ideas in a story he wanted to see told. With Jurassic World on the right path, the »

Three New Ultra-hq Stills From Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

1 June 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In exactly two months, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation officially lights the fuse! For the fifth mission, Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) took on directing duties with megastar Tom Cruise (Edge Of Tomorrow) reprising his role as Imf Agent Ethan Hunt and leading an ensemble cast that features Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible 3), Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), and Alec Baldwin (The Departed). Not much has been revealed about the film's plot yet, but if we've learned anything about Cruise over the years, it's that he rarely disappoints, so on July 31st, be ready to gear up for the wildest ride of the summer! And if I had to make an educated guess, I'd say we should expect to see a new action-packed trailer within the month as well as a variety of other promotional material.  Additionally, thanks to the Tom Cruise Blog, »

Johnny Utah doesn’t fear death in first trailer for Point Break remake

27 May 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Nostalgia meets extreme sports in the first trailer for Point Break, this year’s remake of the Kathryn Bigelow-directed original starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.

As in the 1991 original, Point Break follows FBI agent Johnny Utah – this time played by Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe Retaliation) – as he goes undercover, snowboarding, rock-climbing, parachuting, and of course surfing his way through his latest investigation alongside suspect Bodhi (Zero Dark Thirty’s Édgar Ramírez).

Pushing familiar themes of brotherhood, betrayal, and… explosions, the remake's trailer feels like the original had a baby with The Fast and the Furious franchise – and you know what? We’re kind of okay with that.

Point Break is directed by Ericson Core, written by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium), and also stars Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Ray Winstone (The Departed). It plays in Cineplex theatres on December 25.

Watch The Extreme Trailer For Point Break

26 May 2015 10:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Still surfing?” “Every day.”

The trailer for the remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s Point Break has arrived.

Inspired by the classic 1991 hit starring Patrick Swayze and, whoa, Keanu Reeves, Warner Bros. Pictures will release it in on December 25.

The film stars Édgar Ramírez (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Carlos the Jackal”) as Bodhi, and Luke Bracey (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “November Man”) as Johnny Utah, along with Ray Winstone (“Noah,” “The Departed”), Teresa Palmer (“Warm Bodies”) and Delroy Lindo (“Sahara,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds”), under the direction of Ericson Core (“Invincible”).

In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller Point Break, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways.

New 'Black Mass' Trailer Is Surprisingly Funny, But Does It Glorify Whitey Bulger?

25 May 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first trailer for "Black Mass" revealed the danger of sharing family recipes, and the second trailer -- released over Memorial Day weekend -- showcases Johnny Depp's Whitey Bulger making more speeches, killing more people, and charming at least one old lady.

This time, Bulger shares some not-so-wise advice for his son: "It's not what you do, it's when and where you do it, and who you do it to or with. If nobody sees it, it didn't happen." Dakota Johnson's Lindsey Cyr responds, "Jimmy, he's 6. You really think that's the best thing to be telling a kid?" Bulger's response: "Yeah."

Yeah, best to learn early not to get caught. The rest of the trailer is mostly filled with action shots, typical gangster stuff -- guns, money, club scene -- set to the song "The Devil Is a Lie" by Rick Ross featuring Jay Z, and punctuated by »

Mission: Impossible 6 May Already Be In Early Development

23 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Considering the high-octane action sequel Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which stars superstar Tom Cruise (Edge Of Tomorrow) alongside an ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible), Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), and Alec Baldwin (The Departed), hasn't even opened yet, this new report may be a tad premature, but according to The Tracking Board, Paramount may already be in the early stages of developing Mission: Impossible 6, which is expected to round out the new trilogy that started with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Cruise, J.J. Abrams, David Ellison, and Dana Goldberg are all back on as producers for the sixth film with Don Granger and Matt Grimm serving as executive producers and Elizabeth Raposo overseeing development. It's too early to say which cast members will be back, but the report claims that the full ensemble is expected to return, which »

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Gambler’ Still Wins on Blu-ray

14 May 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Browsing Dostoyevsky titles with consideration for proper roles for Mark Wahlberg, one might expect the Beantown hero to take on an adaptation of “The Idiot” before anything like “The Gambler.” After all, while Wahlberg has proven to be a diverse screen force - one who has well-grown past his Funky Bunch days - he often leans towards goofy men, or at least goofy men in goofy movies.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Such provides a nice surprise with the drama “The Gambler,” which finds him in a role the utilizes his charisma and acting skills, within a tale that doesn’t involve directors Michael Bay or Seth McFarlane. Playing a college professor who gambles his life away, the film is a showcase of his talents, like his compelling motormouth delivery, or a stable cool that he maintains even when his character is falling apart. Here’s a film that offers a scene of Marky Mark rambling about Camus, »

‘Black-ish’ Star Anthony Anderson Recalls His Nickelodeon Days

8 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anthony Anderson, who won an NAACP Image Award this year for his starring role on ABC’s “Black-ish,” has also earned kudos for his work on “Barbershop” and “The Departed.” But it was a part in the TV sci-fier “Alien Avengers” and in Nickelodeon’s Big Help-a-Thon that were his entre to Variety.

How did you get involved with Help-a-Thon?

I was on the Saturday-morning TV show “Hang Time.” When Nickelodeon asked me to come on, I jumped at that opportunity. It was about donating time to your community — and it was cool to just be a part of that movement.

How did you break into the biz?

I got an acting scholarship to Howard University, and then returned to L.A. I didn’t even have agents, but I would crash friends’ auditions. Casting director Jaki Brown-Karman saw something in me, and would call me for auditions. I was »

Time Machine: Pre-Ted Wahlberg - Bypassed for Best Actor Oscar - and Super-Model Wife on the Red Carpet

Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham on the Oscars' Red Carpet Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham at the Academy Awards Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham in a red-and-golden outfit are pictured above on the 2011 Academy Awards' Red Carpet, just outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories. Wahlberg, however, was a Best Supporting Actor nominee four years ago: for »
