Can a video be romantic and deeply creepy at the same time? Yes it can, especially if it’s Daft Punk’s new clip for “Instant Crush,” featuring Julian Casablancas. You’ll never look at museum dioramas the same way. Taking a cue from “Night At the Museum,” the video “stars” two figures: a Napoleonic War soldier and the beautiful maiden he just happens to be positioned across from. Their tragic love story plays out in different parts of the museum and it’s a tribute to the video makers that even though the mannequins' expressions never change, the viewer totally feels the intense love »
It is more of a wax figure, actually, and — spoiler alert — it is not long for this world. But yes, Fake Julian Casablancas gets to live out all of his tragic Night at the Museum fantasies while Real Julian emotes and plays fake keyboard in a pedestal room. I was going to ask for a Julian Doll for Christmas, but I guess it doesn't exist anymore. At least it found love. »

“Are you Mitty? Is this wish fulfillment for you?” Roach recalls asking Stiller about the movie’s tale of a middle-aged dreamer who embarks on a life-changing, globe-trotting adventure that finds him skateboarding down a highway in Iceland and swimming with a shark in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic.
It’s a question the ambitious Stiller gets often, so that when Roach, the man who directed him in the first two “Meet the Parents” films, inquired, he didn’t bat an eyelash. “Yeah, of course,” Stiller replied. “I think that’s what made it relatable.”
It’s not that the multihyphenate, who’s also a producer on the pic, necessarily identifies with the character, but he understands the draw. »

This story first appeared in the Dec. 6 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. "There's nothing funnier than someone trying to be serious," says Ricky Gervais of his Night at the Museum co-star Ben Stiller, who will leave his hand- and footprints in cement in front of Hollywood's Tcl Chinese Theatre on Dec. 3. "He doesn't simply play comedy characters -- his acting chops go a lot deeper." Stiller, whose portfolio of edgy comedies and family films includes Meet the Parents, Madagascar and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, agrees: "Yes, they're broad and silly, but you have to treat

In an interview to promote his upcoming movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller tells The Hollywood Reporter that he might retire from acting. The 47-year-old star of hit movie franchises from the Madagascar films to Night at the Museum and Meet the Fockers called directing and starring in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty “an incredible experience.” Ben Stiller made headlines today via a promotional interview on behalf of his upcoming remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Stiller told The Hollywood Reporter that directing and starring in Walter Mitty was “an incredible experience” and that he might very well give up acting at age 47 to focus on directing full time. “I definitely could see myself just directing, for sure,” Stiller said. “In fact, I feel like that’s sort of what will end up happening as roles dry up. That’s where I’d love to end up. »
Today’s film is the 2007 short For the Love of God. The film is directed by Joe Tucker, who co-wrote the script with Raphael Warner, and stars Julia Davis, Ian McKellan, and Steve Coogan. Coogan is perhaps best known for his character Alan Partridge, who has appeared in numerous tv shows and movies such as The Day Today, I’m Alan Partridge, and Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. He has also appeared in movies such as Hamlet 2, Night at the Museum, and The Trip. His newest feature, Philomena, opens in wide release in American theatres this weekend.

On his latest film, Philomena – the story of journalist Martin Sixsmith’s quest to help the title character (Judi Dench) find the son who was taken from her 50 years previously – Steve Coogan is not only the lead actor but also the screenwriter, credited alongside co-scribe Jeff Pope. Coogan is a veteran performer who started out on British TV, where he created such characters as Alan Partridge, and moved into film, making both mainstream Hollywood funny fare like Night at the Museum and Tropic Thunder and more sophisticated humorous expeditions in the UK, such as Michael Winterbottom’s Tristram Shandy: A Cock […] »

Just a silly comedy? There might be more to Mrs Doubtfire than it's given credit for...
This article contains spoilers for Mrs Doubtfire.
If you dig through the box office takings for the films of Robin Williams, then - taking aside his supporting performance in Night At The Museum - his most lucrative film at the Us box office remains 1993's Mrs Doubtfire. Inflation-adjusted, it tops the list.
The film was released in the aftermath of Disney's record-breaking Aladdin (and followed the fascinatingly flawed Toys), and in the years that followed, Williams would enjoy a bunch of further hits, including the likes of Jumanji, The Birdcage (two films that, fact-fans, passed $100m at the Us box office on the same weekend), Patch Adams and Flubber. He'd nab an Oscar in the midst of that run for Good Will Hunting, too. This was Robin Williams »
The script is being written by Audrey Wells (The Game Plan, Under The Tuscan Sun) and the film will tell the story of a father in the city of New York whose love for his estranged daughter living overseas is so strong that it causes the island of Manhattan to break free from New York City and float across the Atlantic towards her.
This seems to be a safe bet for Will Smith whose career has taken a major dive in recent years, with his most recent movie After Earth (which also starred Jaden Smith) disappointing at the box office. And if Willow Smith isn't cast in this I'll be surprised. »

According to Deadline, "The story centers on a father and daughter on the island of Manhattan as it breaks loose and sails across the Atlantic Ocean."
This definitely sounds like an interesting film project and something Levy would be good at bringing to life. Smith is always a fun actor to watch up on the big screen, but let's face it... his last movie, After Earth, was a giant turd. Only M. Night Shyamalan could make an actor like Smith look talentless.
The script for it is being written by Audrey Wells (George of the Jungle and The Kid), and production on the film starts early next year. »

City That Sailed: Will Smith will star in City That Sailed, confirming reports that began circulating three years ago. The story follows "a father and daughter on the island of Manhattan as it breaks loose and sails across the Atlantic Ocean." (?!) As far as we know, the movie has nothing to do with Smith's adventures with broken bridges in Manhattan in I Am Legend (pictured above); it will, however, be developed and directed by Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Night at the Museum). [Deadline] The Wonder Twins: The popular Midtown Comics in Manhattan received a movie poster from Warner Bros. in the mail, which is nothing unusual -- except it's for a movie that doesn't exist. The poster appears to reference The Wonder Twins, a Hanna-Barbara cartoon from the 1970s...

City That Sailed (a.k.a. The City That Sailed) is a project that’s had Will Smith’s attention for more than three years now, going back to right before he committed to making Men in Black III. The project now has the A-lister officially set as its lead, while 20th Century Fox has gone ahead and tapped Shawn Levy – director of Real Steel and the Night at the Museum franchise – to take the helm on this original fantasy-adventure.
An earlier script draft for City That Sailed was penned by writer/director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, The Host), with a story about a (divorced?) New York street magician separated from his young daughter. The girl ends up ...

20th Century Fox’s City That Sailed looks to be a very interesting film indeed. No metaphorical nonsense here, the film’s title is indeed the basis of the film – Manhattan island somehow breaks away from the Earth and begins its voyage across the Atlantic. I’m guessing the vast majority of the island’s population would be like this.
Will Smith has been hovering around the project since before he decided to join Men In Black 3 and has now officially been confirmed to star. Sitting high atop the director’s chair and watching out for icebergs is Shawn Levy, director of the Night At The Museum films and the 2-hour Google advert The Internship. The script is being written by Audrey Wells, with Smith and James Lassiter on production.
Levy has also been attached to direct Night At The Museum 3, which will release at Christmas next year. »
- Tom Durbin
The City That Sailed centres around the daughter of a New York City street magician who lives in England.
She discovers a set of magical candles in a lighthouse, and her wish to be reunited with her father causes the island of Manhattan to break away and begin moving across the ocean towards her.
Levy most recently directed The Internship and will next work on Night at the Museum 3.
Smith will be seen starring in the upcoming Hurricane Katrina drama The American Can. »
One for Jaden, and now hopefully one for Willow. It would only be fair. Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy signed on to helm City That Sailed starring Will Smith, a family fantasy movie about "a father and daughter on the island of Manhattan as it breaks loose and sails across the Atlantic Ocean." Smith has been associated with the film since 2009 and really, what is Willow up to these days anyway? Finishing middle school? Whatever. We're sure they can work around it. Let's just do this, girl. »

Have you ever loved someone so much that you changed cities to be with them? There.s a good chance you may have, but did you ever actually move a city across an ocean in order to do it? If not, that.s because you.re no Will Smith. The actor has long been attached to the 20th Century Fox fantasy adventure City That Sailed, which is now apparently sailing towards reality with high concept director extraordinaire Shawn Levy, of Night at the Museum fame. A big budget director plus a big budget movie star? Wherever did they come up with such a combination? Of course, it.s not as if the film will actually get made in the near future, as Levy is currently finishing up on the star-studded comedic drama This is Where I Leave You before heading off at the beginning of next year to the U. »
20th Century Fox has tapped Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) to direct the adventure picture The City That Sailed, now officially starring Will Smith (Independence Day). Scripted by Audrey Wells (The Game Plan), the story "centers on a father and daughter on the island of Manhattan as it breaks loose and sails across the Atlantic Ocean." With Smith as the father, I'll give you three guesses on who will likely play the daughter. Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Levy and Smith are both on board for The City That Sailed. Smith's name has been attached to this project since he wrapped on Men in Black 3, but now he's officially on board. There's no current information as to how this news affects Smith's schedule for a possible return to the Independence Day sequel, but since that film's release date was pushed back a year, perhaps there's still a chance. »
