The gang is back in the "Entourage" movie, which picks up about seven months after the series finale and finds everyone living a whole lot larger with Ari (Jeremy Piven) running a studio and Vince (Adrian Grenier) directing his first movie. That's Hollywood.
Last year, we were invited to "Turtle's Malibu beach house" set, where we chatted with stars Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, and director Doug Ellin. Here's the vital info we learned about the big-screen baller reunion, which hits theaters June 3rd.
1. Vince is now a director.
The movie is called "Hyde," a modern-day version of "Jekyll and Hyde," where Dr. Hyde is a Tony Stark-style genius chemist "with a dark side," according to production designer Chase Harlan. E is producing, Vince is directing, and Drama's got a small role. "The guys have a lot riding on this new movie, and because it's Ari's first movie at the studio, »

Las Vegas - Paramount Pictures presentation at the 5th Annual CinemaCon convention featured a former California governor and a hilarious bit from an infamous male model, but it was Tom Cruise appearing on behalf of "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" that really got the world's theater owners jazzed. "This is very exciting," Cruise says. "'Mission' was the first movie I ever produced. The dream was to be able to allow us to make more. Here we are at number five almost 20 years later." Cruise was on hand along with co-stars Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson to introduce two extended clips for the fifth "Mission: Impossible" flick. After a quick set up where Cruise noted everything director Christopher McQuarrie (stuck in the editing room) wanted the audience to know the screening began. The first scene is close to the beginning of the picture and finds an unconscious and shirtless Ethan Hunt »

Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) and John Cusack (High Fidelity) both star as Wilson, playing him as a young and old man respectively. The film follows Wilson from the group’s rise in sunny SoCal through the darkness of his burgeoning mental illness. As their popularity soared — making magic in the studio, conquering charts and minds, battling the Beatles (and sometimes winning) — Wilson’s inner demons festered.
The film focuses mainly on Wilson in the 1980’s, when he suffered midlife crisis that could have killed him, to the midlife romance that pretty much saved him. Paul Giamatti (Sideways) co-stars as Eugene Landy, the dodgy shrink who went from helping Wilson to over-medicating him, alongside Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) as Melinda Ledbetter, »

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson. In this faux Extra set report for April Fool's Day, Mario Lopez and Ryan Reynolds chat about the rating for Deadpool, leading to an unexpected (but very welcome) conclusion. Via Twitter Reynolds confirmed the film will be rated R, as fans have been hoping for: "February 12th. There will be blood. Guns. F-bombs. And graphic, expertly lit French Unicorn sex." A solo film centering on Deadpool -- a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary infamous for his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall -- has been in development for years, but thanks to the positive reception of leaked proof of concept footage (watch below) »

Ever since Deadpool was officially announced last year, fans have been wondering whether or not this highly-anticipated comic book adaptation will be rated R, staying true to the original foul-mouthed nature of the Merc With the Mouth. Earlier today, JoBlo reported that the movie will actually be PG-13, although many wondered if it was merely an April Fool's Day story. As it turns out, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds was even in on the fun, sending out a series of tweets this morning, telling fans there is "zero reason to panic" about a PG-13 rated Deadpool, but, like that original report, it was all a ruse.
JoBlo has posted a new video, which is made to look like an Extra TV report, with host Mario López interviewing Ryan Reynolds live from the Deadpool set. While it initially looks like your standard TV interview, things take a hilarious turn, as you will see below. »
So, has the rating controversy over Deadpool finally been solved? A couple of days ago, Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter in the midst of production on the Marvel Comics adaptation to address the film’s rating. He reiterated that he’s always wanted Deadpool—a story that focuses on a violent antihero who uses profanity—to be rated-r and was currently “fighting” with the studio, since it would be a significant leap of faith for 20th Century Fox to release an R-rated Deadpool, alienating a large portion of the moviegoing audience that usually turns up for superhero movies. Today, an “exclusive” video interview between Extra’s Mario Lopez and Reynolds on the Deadpool set surfaced over at JoBlo, during which the rating issue was solved once and for all: Of course today’s “holiday” initially made this all a tiny bit unclear, and Reynolds preceded the video with some tweets hinting towards a PG-13 Deadpool. »

I'm not gonna lie; this video had me fooled! Something seems a little off about it from the start, but it definitely appears to be a pretty standard video interview. That is until Deadpool himself shows up (following talk of the movie being "family friendly"), attacks the interviewer, and confirms that the report and Tweets from earlier today were all just a joke. Deadpool is officially Rated-r. February 12th. There will be blood. Guns. F-bombs. And graphic, expertly lit French Unicorn sex. #deadpoolRatedR @deadpoolmovie #Aprilpools— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 1, 2015 »
The news was released in the best possible way. In recent weeks we've been hearing that there was fighting behind the scenes of the production with 20th Century Fox wanting to make the movie a PG-13 whereas the cast and crew wanted to do an R-rated film which was more suitable to the material.
JoBlo posted up an April Fools article this morning suggesting that the film had secured a PG-13 rating. Reynolds followed that up with some tweets.
#deadpool - So we make the blood green. (Views expressed here are mine - not necessarily those of adorable, taint-punchers releasing films)
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 1, 2015
A PG-13 #deadpool will still have 4th wall breaking, a shit-ton of action and at least 3 chimichangas. Zero need to panic. I promise.

Update: It turns out that Ryan Reynolds has played an April Fools joke on us, and contrary to our earlier report, it's now been confirmed that Deadpool will in fact be an R-rated movie. You can watch the very special announcement video - courtesy of JoBlo - below: Reynolds also Tweeted out a pretty funny message to fans, writing: February 12th. There will be blood. Guns. F-bombs. And graphic, expertly lit French Unicorn sex. #deadpoolRatedR @deadpoolmovie #Aprilpools. Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 1, 2015 The original story in its entirety is below. Since late last year when the Deadpool movie was officially announced, we've been hearing about a constant behind-the-scenes debate regarding the film's target rating. The filmmakers and Ryan Reynolds have publicly declared their desire to make an R-rated feature, though this opinion has evidently been met with a bit of push-back from the folks at 20th Century Fox. There has been »

Update: Ryan Reynolds had the web well and truly April Fooled.
After kicking off the day with the news that his hard-edged comic book movie would be pushed down from an R-rating to PG-13, the actor pulled the rug with a last-second reveal saying this wasn't the case.
And he had a little help from Saved by the Bell star-turned-tv host Mario Lopez. Watch the video below, then scroll down to see the original story...

Written for the screen by Christopher Kyle
Directed by Susanne Bier
USA/France/Czech Republic, 2014
Based on a bestselling novel by Ron Rash, Serena, as brought to the screen by director Susanne Bier and screenwriter Christopher Kyle, feels like a husk of an adaptation even to one completely unfamiliar with the source material. It’s the sort of film that, at least in the form prepped for theatrical release, makes one inclined to believe its makers have completely lost the ability to tell a story. And it’s not like that ever seems like a deliberate stylistic choice, with Bier actually focusing on some thematic flourish off on the sidelines. Serena is always focused on its plot. Its perpetually rushed, choppily told, borderline confusing plot.
Part of the trouble in the telling is that the film’s a tonal mess. In her native Denmark, and with American cinema forays »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This week we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of Paul Thomas Anderson as director.
Anderson began his career without any related college experience as a production assistant. With some money he scrounged together, he made a short film, which he entered into the 1993 Sundance Film Festival. He decided to turn that short into a feature and was invited to attend the Sundance Feature Film Program, where he was mentored, and his talents were further developed. In 1996 his first feature film was released, Hard Eight, which Anderson had to raise his own money in order to edit it as he wanted, which was different than how the production company wanted to release the film. His version received some critical praise. His next film, Boogie »

Editor Jacob T. Swinney has created a fascinating five minute video featuring the first and final shots from 55 different films. In some cases we can attempt to draw meaning from what we're seeing and in others there doesn't appear to be much rhyme or reason, but that in itself can offer a window into what the director was attempting to achieve. My only complaint with the video is the fact Swinney didn't include the film titles in the actual video, opting instead to list them in the film's description. While the majority of the images are recognizable enough, I did find myself looking at the descriptions here and there, taking me out of the video for a second and ultimately causing me to have to pause the video overall. Not a major complaint, just more a compliment in fact to the engrossing nature of what was created. I personally find the images of Birdman, »

Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress -- at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite. In the meantime: is this a movie you'd want to see? Tell us in the comments. Wiglum Tweetable Logline: At his local supermarket salad bar, Wiglum witnesses the ridiculous routine of human life in mindless motion -- and it has taken its toll. Elevator Pitch: Our main actor is from "There Will Be Blood" and "American Beauty"; our stylistic influences are David Lynch, PTA, & Bela Tarr. "Wiglum" tip-toes 'fever-dream' and 'madcap black-comedy' through the banal gaze of a microscope. Our cinematographer had a Sundance feature titled "The Woman." Much of the compositions pack a bizarre sober punch that capture an alien energy "Wiglum" senses in these seemingly mundane moments and spaces.

We've already seen a really great trailer for Alex Garland's directorial debut Ex Machina but with the movie's Us release around the corner, a new trailer has been released and this one offers up an even darker look at Garland's Turing Test thriller.
Oscar Isaac stars as Nathan Bateman, the reclusive CEO of a tech company who is working on a secret AI experiment in his home lab. When Ava reaches the point of testing, Bateman invites one of his employees, played by Domhnall Gleeson, to come and spend a week at the retreat to test the AI. Obviously, things go wrong but in this new trailer, we get a sense of just how wrong they go.
