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. »

Defiance Movie Review -- Jews kicking ass. Brian says the boys of Knocked Up would adore this movie

29 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jews kicking ass. The boys of "Knocked Up" would adore this movie. Actually, "Defiance" has a little more on its plate than simple heroics, but the violence, the sheer aggression, is one of the lone qualities that separate this Edward Zwick film from the average television movie. A respectable shot at a Holocaust story with uplifting qualities and plump moral questioning, "Defiance" is a handsome production, just not an especially inspiring one. In the midst of World War II, while the Nazis sweep across Poland, brothers Tuvia (Daniel Craig), Zus (Live Schreiber), and Asael Beilski (Jamie Bell) escape the slaughter, taking refuge in the nearby forests they've grown up in. Stumbling upon other refugees, the brothers set up a camp of sorts, helping to protect and feed the wide range of personalities and temperaments assembled. When word »

Ghost Town DVD Review

26 December 2008 9:27 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Ghost Town may have been overlooked in theaters, but it’s definitely worth a glance on DVD; a rare blend of tender sentimentality and laugh-out-loud moments that is worthy of a planned entertainment diversion.

Admittedly, on paper writer/director David Koepp’s script sounds corny.  After a near-death experience, a man discovers he has the ability to see and converse with ghosts, who pester him about taking care of their unfinished business.  This supernatural bunch of annoying haunts includes Frank Herlihy (Greg Kinnear), a former womanizer who needs help finding a suitable match for his widowed wife (Téa Leoni).

However, despite the high-concept premise that reads like a cheesy romantic comedy, the relentless wit of Ricky Gervais single-handedly makes this movie not only watchable, but extremely funny.

As Dr. Bertram Pincus, an irritable dentist with the people skills of Ebenezer Scrooge, Gervais is a wry, sarcastic misanthrope who enjoys the »

Paul Rudd, Jason Segel and Rashida Jones Star in a New Movie

24 December 2008 2:55 PM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Paul Rudd and Jason Segel are teaming up with Andy Samberg for a movie "I Love You, Man" coming to theaters in March.

"I Love You, Man" is about Peter Klaven (Rudd) who realizes he doesn't have any close friends to be his groomsmen at his wedding. To find himself a best man, he goes on several "man-dates." But when his insta-bond with his new best man, Sydney (Segel), causes a rift in his relationship with his fiancée, Zooey (played by Rashida Jones), will Peter be able to balance both relationships?

Rudd and Segel first worked together on "Knocked Up," but they didn't have much interaction. For the film "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," where Rudd played a surf instructor and Segel played a guy who was just dumped by his girlfriend and looking to get away to Hawaii, the two actors were able to play off each other quite a bit. »

23 December 2008 1:02 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Dreamworks Animation has released the second full movie trailer for their computer animated sci-fi comedy Monsters vs. Aliens. This trailer is a little bit sillier than the last one, focusing more on the wacky monster characters who, turn out to be our only hope against an alien invasion. Leave your comments below.

Plot Synopsis: “Monsters vs. Aliens,” which is slated for a domestic release date of March 27, 2009, reinvents the classic ’50s monster movie into an irreverent modern day action comedy.

Ginormica; Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie (TV’s “House,” “Stuart Little”) as Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; Will Arnett (TV’s “Arrested Development,” “Blades of Glory”) as The Missing Link; Seth Rogen (”Knocked Up,” “Superbad”) as B.O.B.; Rainn Wilson (”Juno,” TV’s »

Is ‘The Green Hornet’ Movie On Life Support?

23 December 2008 12:03 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

On a basic level, I’d love to see a modern day movie adaptation of the 1960s TV series The Green Hornet. As it happens, this very project has been slowly creeping forward for about a year and a half. For the longest time, the only solid news regarding the film was the fact that Seth Rogen would be involved with the film. At first he was attached as a producer and possibly the lead. Then came word that Rogen wasn’t sure whether the film would lean more or less towards a comedy, and that they’d decide as they wrote the script.

Nothing like having a clear vision for your film right from the start.

 

The writers’ strike put a hold on any development for a few months, but when we next heard about the film it looked like they had decided on a direction: a laugh-riot comedy. »

Steven Chow No Longer Directing Green Hornet

20 December 2008 10:57 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

According to “Variety”, renowned Hong Kong comedian, producer, and martial arts actor and director Stephen Chow has dropped out of directing the big-screen adaptation of “The Green Hornet”. No new director has been announced yet though producer Neil Moritz and Columbia Studios are setting up to find one and hope to maintain their timeline of starting shooting the action-comedy in the spring. Though he will still be starring alongside “Knocked Up” and “Zach and Miri Make a Porno” star Seth Rogen as the black-clad Kato to Rogen’s take on the masked green-clad avenger in a trench coat, based on the character, created in the 1930’s as a character [...] »

Judd Apatow Exclusive Video Interview -- He talks about Funny People and an event that you need to hear about. If you live in L.A. this is a must see event!

18 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Just a few hours ago I was on the red carpet at the “Bedtime Stories” premiere. While I didn’t land as many interviews as last night, I did manage to get some time with one of my favorite director’s, Judd Apatow. If you don’t know his name, you’ve definitely seen his work, as Judd’s produced and directed tons of projects like “40 Year-Old Virgin”, “Knocked Up”, “Undeclared” and “Freaks and Geeks”! For the last few months he’s been working on his latest film “Funny People”. The film has a huge cast with Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana, Jonah Hill, and Jason Schwartzman all starring, and he’s got a ton of guest appearances as the movie is all about stand up comedians. Anyway, on the red carpet we chatted about how “Funny People” has been going and he told me something I hadn’t heard before… »

Stand-Up Comedian Cameos in Funny People Revealed

17 December 2008 4:16 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's starting to look more and more like Judd Apatow's Funny People will be the ultimate stand-up comedian movie that may be a new comedy classic. As everyone already knows, Adam Sandler stars in the film as a stand-up comic and is joined by fellow comedians Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill. In addition to those two, however, a handful of other stand-up comics will make a cameo, as SlashFilm has discovered today. Dave Attell, Sarah Silverman, Norm MacDonald, and Andy Dick will all have cameos in the film, potentially as themselves. Attell revealed that the scene was shot quickly and was highly improvised. I know we're giving Funny People a lot of love very early on, but it's hard not to when it just sounds like a genuinely fantastic film. Apatow has continually outdone himself with his own films, starting with 40 Year Old Virgin and followed by Knocked Up. »

J-Lo Decides to Have Twins Again

16 December 2008 5:15 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Gigli might have tanked as one of the crappiest films of all time, but that's not stopping Jennifer Lopez's attraction to rom-coms. Her romance-centric comedies barely garner 5 out of 10 in the thousands of votes on IMDb, and she can't even come close to the likes of old pros like Sandra Bullock, but she keeps coming back for more.

The Hollywood Reporter posts that Lopez has signed on to star in CBS Films' new rom-com called Plan B. Coming from a spec by Kate Angelo, the film focuses on a single woman itching to have kids. Since she hasn't met a man she can settle down with, the woman decides to go for "Plan B" and get artificially inseminated. However, the same day that she conceives twins, she meets the man of her dreams (Plan A). (I'm sniffing a Baby Mama sort of scenario...)

Amusingly, the piece also notes »

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" »

John Adams Writer Helps Katherine Heigl Escape

8 December 2008 5:20 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Katherine Heigl has come out of nowhere to become Hollywood's fourth-highest-paid female actress, and a lot of that credit lies in her choice of projects. She became the female lead in Knocked Up after Anne Hathaway bowed out, and parlayed that hit-- which by no means rested on her shoulders-- into her own vehicle, 27 Dresses, that did great too. And before anyone has a chance to label her a romantic comedy queen or anything like that, she's moving on into drama-- and now she has a credentialed dramatic screenwriter to take with her. Kirk Ellis, who won an Emmy for writing the miniseries John Adams, will write Heigl's next project Escape, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie will be based on the book by Carolyn Jessop, who was forced into a polygamous marriage as part of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter-Day Saints and later escaped with her six children. »

Katherine Heigl Debuts on Highest-Paid Actresses List

4 December 2008 11:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Katherine Heigl has come a long way since carrying a gun-totting doll in 1998's Bride of Chucky. The Grey's Anatomy star and newly minted screen queen has made a tremendous leap onto the A-List, counting herself among the top five of Hollywood's highest-paid actresses, according to the Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment: Power 100 list. The 30-year-old movie newbie, who made her major box office debut in 2007's Knocked Up (which has grossed more than $148 million) and followed the comedic hit up with 27 Dresses, took the fifth spot on the prestigious list behind such powerhouses as Angelina Jolie (No. 1), Julia Roberts (No. »

Blu-ray Review: Step Brothers (Unrated)

1 December 2008 9:51 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

My wife hates Will Ferrell, yet loves Step Brothers and quotes it daily ("We're here to f**k sh*t up" being her favorite). And unlike me who plugs movie quotes into conversations as if they're Lego blocks, she--like most socially adept humans--rarely quotes films. Yet, you don't know my wife so that probably means nothing to you, but I find the fact she digs a Ferrell film and puppets it to be astonishing. Her behavior drills to the core of Step Brothers' success. Like the previous collaborations between director Adam McKay and Ferrell (Anchorman, Talladega Nights), Step Brothers crackles with anarchic, hilarious lines that sound as if they were thought up during a mescaline-soaked fever-dream. I'm attracted to bizarre, zany dialogue, the sort that lends itself to constant quoting among friends. And I don't deny the immature kid in me giggles even harder when it's especially vulgar (and »
