Olivia Munn Needs Sperm In Red Band Trailer For Broken Lizard’s ‘The Babymakers’

24 December 2011 11:54 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After their flop The Slammin’ Salmon, the comedy troupe Broken Lizard (behind Super Troopers and Beerfest) are back with a new film. The Babymakers is directed by Jay Chandrasekhar and with a promo red band trailer arriving today, it actually looks like it could be a return to form. The highlight for me is seeing Paul Schneider nab a lead comedy role, after loving him in everything from early David Gordon Green films (George Washington, All the Real Girls) to other dramas (Bright Star, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Away We Go) to having success on prime-time TV with Parks and Recreations.

He is joined by TV personality Olivia Munn, which I haven’t been impressed with, but hopefully this and her role in Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike this summer will change by mind. They play a couple who needs some working sperm to have a baby, »

Trent Reznor: 'I'm not at war with myself as I once was'

23 December 2011 4:24 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Trent Reznor's score for The Social Network won an Oscar. Will The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo bag him another? Dorian Lynskey meets him at his Beverly Hills home

Some time in the late 1990s, the music video director Mark Romanek approached his friend Trent Reznor to compose the score for his feature debut One Hour Photo, a thriller in which lab technician Robin Williams becomes obsessed with a suburban family. It was not the happiest time for Reznor, who was straining to complete the third Nine Inch Nails album and, he says, was about to "slip off a cliff of addiction". While things were still at the demo stage, he received an apologetic call from Romanek saying the studio was pressuring him to use a "real composer".

The physical evidence of how much has changed since those days is 34cm tall, gold-plated and stands on the mantelpiece of Reznor's house in Beverly Hills. »

Distant Relatives: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and The Assassination of Jesse James

22 December 2011 7:10 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Robert here w/ Distant Relatives, exploring the connections between one classic and one contemporary film.

What is it about the American West that endures? No other specific time and place has been so ubiquitous in film that it's spurred its own genre. There's no genre for colonial films, or films about the depression. There's no genre for medieval movies or ancient Egypt. The closest we come are "period films" (more of a general catagorization than a genre), epics (a designation that depends on more than mere setting) and war movies (narrowly limited depending on the war, but so many wars to choose from) but none of them have the same lure as the Western. America being as young as it is, was founded during a time of general civility. Yes it was born out of Revolution, but the civilization itself was defined by men in suits and manners and polite society. »

Before They Were Famous: Jeremy Renner in 'National Lampoon's Senior Trip'

16 December 2011 1:00 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

In this weekend's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," Jeremy Renner plays an overqualified Imf analyst; but it wasn't long ago that the Academy Award nominee was making his film debut as an underachieving student in the long-forgotten '90s comedy  "National Lampoon's Senior Trip."

Renner's interest in acting blossomed relatively late, when the California native decided to pursue a double major in theater and psychology at Modesto Junior College. Shortly after graduation, Renner made his way to Los Angeles to parlay his passion into a career. His first opportunity came via the play "Search and Destroy," which earned him early buzz from critics. From there, Renner jumped into his first film role at the tender age of 24 with "Senior Trip."

In the critically reviled 1995 teen comedy, Renner costars as Mark "Dags" D'Agastino, a perpetually stoned, flannel-wearing high school senior who, along with his obnoxious classmates, heads to Washington D.C. »

Jeremy Renner

15 December 2011 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

So many movies these days try to frighten us with effects. But nothing surpasses the look in someone's hard eyes. Jeremy Renner has it

The festive season has gifts, but some are harder to evaluate than others. So it looks like a big leap forward for 40-year-old actor Jeremy Renner that he is one of the team in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, the latest in those Tom Cruise extravaganzas. I haven't seen it, but I know the trailer almost by heart, with its close-ups of the implacable face of Renner looking at Cruise and the entire venture as if to say: "What the hell am I doing here?"

It's a good question, along with the one about how Cruise let so forceful an actor into the film to stare at him in disbelief. Cruise looks like the character he played in Magnolia – that liar to himself – with a dozen years added on. »

Jeremy Renner Talks The Bourne Legacy

22 November 2011 12:07 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It seems an age since Jeremy Renner appeared as notorious serial killer Jeffery Dahmer in what was the actors first lead role, since then Renner had given great support in the likes of S.W.A.T., 28 Weeks Later and The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. It wasn’t until his lead role in Oscar winning war-drama The Hurt Locker did studios take notice and see him as a leading man with a credible presence to hold his own.

Brilliant work in Ben Affleck’s ace crime-thriller The Town eventually lead to offers for major supporting roles in upcoming big-budget franchises Mission: Impossible, The Avengers as well as taking over from Matt Damon’s now iconic role of Bourne set-universe The Bourne Legacy. Speaking to Empire, Renner spoke as to what we can expect to see in the currently filming sequel:-

Brad Pitt Sees Producing As A Bigger Part Of His Career In Years To Come

17 November 2011 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Whilst out in Korea promoting his upcoming film, Moneyball (which I have a really strong feeling will be incredible), Brad Pitt spoke about his retirement from acting and put a life-span on himself at three years. Thankfully, however, he’s backed up a bit from that specific number, THR report, to say that he’s not got an exact date in mind, simply that he can see a time coming when he’ll move away from acting, with an eye to continuing his already brilliantly established career as a producer.

The iconic actor has two Oscar nominations to his name (and I’m hoping a third will be added to that in a couple of months’ time), and was last seen in Terrence Malick’s Cannes Palme d’Or winner, The Tree of Life. His next film, Moneyball, hits the UK in a week and a half on 25th November, »

Brad Pitt says he's looking to retire in three years

15 November 2011 8:34 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Three years. After that, you won't have Brad Pitt to kick around or anoint as the Sexiest Man Alive for an eighth time anymore.

Promoting "Moneyball" overseas, Pitt sat down with "60 Minutes Australia" for a lengthy interview. Near the end of the conversation, the interviewer asked how long Pitt would like to continue working as an actor. His response -- and it was a quick, confident, I've-thought-about-this-before-you-asked it response, too -- "Three years." And then after that? Here's what he said:

""Hell if I know. I'm really enjoying the producorial side; the development of stories, putting those pieces together, getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise."

Fueling retirement rumors? At 47? Can you tell the guy's made three movies with Steven Soderbergh?

Pitt's producorial credits in the last five years include "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," "Kick-Ass," "The Tree of Life, »
