Tame, Less Raunchy, Still Funny 'The Interview' Green Band Trailer

23 September 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He's peanut butter and jealous!" Following last weekend's debut of the much better red band trailer for Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's comedy The Interview, a more tame green band trailer for appropriate audiences has arrived. It's mostly the same trailer, but cuts out the extended profane bits. However, there is some solid new footage of James Franco showing his dimwitted side as talk show personality Dave Skylark as his producer (Rogen) just wants to do real news instead of celebrity gossip bullshit. Blink and you'll miss Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing with some puppies on the faux show "Skylark Tonight." Watch! Here's the new green band trailer for Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's The Interview from Sony: If you missed the raunchy red band trailer for The Interview, you can watch it right here. The Interview is written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (of This is the End previously, »

Seth Rogen, Denzel Washington, Michael Keaton Should Attract Fall Auds, Survey Finds (Exclusive)

23 September 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matching the right actor with the perfect project is a tricky (but tested) formula for box office success.

Take “The Interview.” The upcoming story of two newsmen tapped to assassinate a ruthless military dictator didn’t really move the needle with moviegoers until they found out that the film starred James Franco and Seth Rogen, a comic duo who previously headlined “Pineapple Express” and “This Is The End.”

That’s the takeaway from Piedmont Media Research, after the consumer testing firm polled 1,500 people about “The Interview” and other upcoming fall releases in order to gauge how an actor’s presence in a particular film impacts audiences’ enthusiasm. The people surveyed were selected to be demographically representative of the movie-going public in terms of age, gender, ticket-buying behavior and ethnicity. The results indicate that while star power may not shine as brightly as it did in Hollywood’s golden age, the »

James Franco And Seth Rogen Do It The American Way In Nsfw Trailer For The Interview

22 September 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’re three months away from the release of the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy, The Interview, and the controversy surrounding its content continues to mount. Thankfully, it’s all in the name of jocularity. However, quite a lot of the humour is already lost on North Korea. Specifically, Kim Jong-Un, who is characterized in the movie and subjected to some horrific Indiana Jones-style face melting.

Directed by Rogen and his long-time collaborator Evan Goldberg, The Interview is what Rogen himself termed “3 Days Of The Condor with idiots in it.” Franco stars as a tabloid journalist for hit TV show Skylark Tonight, who is sent along with his producer, Rogen, to visit North Korea. Why? Because they discover that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un loves the show, and figure that landing an interview with such an infamous figure will add a touch of class to the show. The »

Hilarious New Red-Band Trailer for The Interview Starring James Franco and Seth Rogen

20 September 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sony Pictures have released a new three-minute red-band trailer for The Interview, and it doesn’t hold back!

In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

As you might imagine, the plot of the movie has caused some controversy and some edits were apparently made in order to make its content less offensive to North Korea as they did not take kindly to the first trailer.

This one delves into the plot of the movie, throwing in plenty of cameos and laughs, »

Franco & Rogen Join the CIA in New Red Band 'The Interview' Trailer

19 September 2014 10:26 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I got some questions for that goat." At the beginning of the year, The Interview was one of my most anticipated films of 2014. But I'll admit to being more than underwhelmed when the teaser trailer debuted. It just didn't look that funny, and the trailer went for style over comedic substance. But all that changes, and this finally looks like a comedy to get excited about in a new three-minute red band trailer that lays out the story and all the raunchy humor you'd expect from Seth Rogen and James Franco. There seems to be tons of celebrity cameos just like This is The End too. Free your mind, and the rest will follow. Watch now! Here's the new red band trailer for Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's The Interview from Sony: The Interview is written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (of This is the End previously, »

Chuck Palahniuk’s Rant to be adapted by James Franco

12 September 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lit Reactor today brings news that Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk’s 2007 novel Rant is to be adapted for the screen by actor/director James Franco (Spider-Man, Pineapple Express), who has picked up the rights.

The author is quoted as saying: “As of last night we’ve finalized a deal for James Franco to option my novel Rant…..Details about the casting, shooting and a proposed release date will be forthcoming. Hurray. After the opportunity to work with Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Sam Rockwell, I can’t imagine a more exciting actor to work with than Franco.”

After Fight Club in 1999 and the under-rated Choke in 2008 (which starred Rockwell), this will be the third of Palahniuk’s novels to be brought to the screen. It will also mark another book-adaptation directorial job for Franco, who is making a habit of adapting famous novels, including 2013 effort As I Lay Dying, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

7 reasons why Rosie Perez is perfect for the 'The View'

5 September 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Rosie Perez has been named a new co-host of The View, joining Republican political analyst Nicolle Wallace, Whoopi Goldberg, and Rosie O’Donnell for the upcoming new season beginning Sept. 15.

The Latina actress-dancer-director-choreographer (say that five times fast) is perfect for ABC’s daytime talk show. Here are seven reasons why.

1. She’s not a stereotypical or “cookie-cutter” Latina. 

The native New Yorker defies common Latin stereotypes— the sort of which is commonly perpetuated on television. (You know: young and sexy with big boobs and bigger hair, with little talent to speak of.) Now, it’s no secret that The View »

Pilot Spotlight: The Making of 'Red Oaks'

2 September 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

The only thing better than a dream summer job could be making a pilot about a dream summer job – especially if it takes place at a Jersey country club in the 80s.  

If you’re nostalgic for the comedies of yesteryear, you might like the Steven Soderbergh-produced pilot for Red Oaks. As the New York Times describes it, “It’s as if the spirits of John Hughes, Harold Ramis and the young Richard Linklater had all gotten together to consult.” 

Get a look behind-the-scenes of this coming-of-age comedy and see how director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) went about “rebelling against the expectations of TV” and capturing characters “at the eccentric, awkward points in their lives.”

Then don’t forget to watch, rate and review the Red Oaks pilot here.

And stay tuned to Hollywonk as we offer up an inside look at each of the Amazon Original pilots over the next three weeks. »

Venice 2014: 'Manglehorn' review

30 August 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆David Gordon Green has to have one of the most eclectic directorial résumés of recent times. From stoner comedies like Pineapple Express (2008) and Your Highness (2011) to his work on hit TV show Eastbound & Down and striking debut George Washington (2000), Green has graduated into spiky character studies of Americans leading lives of quiet and not so quiet desperation. Last year he was on the Lido with Joe (2013), a marvellously gritty Southern noir which teased out one of Nicolas Cage's best performances in years. This year, Green returns in competition with Manglehorn (2014). Al Pacino plays the title character, A.J. Manglehorn, a seasoned locksmith by profession and a serious man.

'Red Oaks' needs to sharpen its '80s story

30 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Red Oaks, one of the new Amazon Studios pilots now available to watch, is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, but it’s certainly nothing like his current airing television project, the dark early-20th-century medical drama The Knick. Though Red Oaks could sound like a similarly bloody affair, Soderbergh’s never been one to stick to a genre, and the show is a small scale comedy named for a country club in New Jersey where the hero, David, gets a gig as a tennis pro one summer in the ’80s. There’s potential within Red Oaks if Amazon does decide »

Venice Film Review: ‘Manglehorn’

30 August 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When you want subtle and nuanced, Al Pacino isn’t the guy you call. , focused on the kind of eccentric rural Southern character you might expect to encounter in one of Errol Morris’ early documentaries, or among the weathered, life-worn faces who add authenticity as cutaways in one of director David Gordon Green’s own indie features. Personality-wise, this pic feels as scruffy and disheveled as its subject, benefiting from Pacino’s name enough to attract a higher-profile release than a character actor would have in the same part.

Some folks live in the present, and some folks live in the past. That’s equally true of critics, many of whom cling to the memory of Green’s early work — quiet, evocative studies of real, unpretentious souls — despite the studio-comedy career he’s had since “Pineapple Express.” Small-town Texas locksmith A.J. Manglehorn (Pacino) also lives in the past, hung »

Venice Reviews: Al Pacino Achieves Late-Career Greatness in ‘Manglehorn'; Bogdanovich and Levinson, Not So Much

30 August 2014 3:04 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Probably the only director of this generation who's ever going to be produced by both Terence Malick and Judd Apatow, David Gordon Green has proven time and again that he doesn't need much plot to tell a riveting story. From the kids of “George Washington” to the stoners of “Pineapple Express” to the highway workers of “Prince Avalanche,” Green allows his characters to come alive through subtle revelation and interaction, creating indelible portraits of seemingly run-of-the-mill folks. His powers serve him well in “Manglehorn,” a film that offers Al Pacino in what will be remembered among his finest latter-career performances. »

Bill Hader’s List of 200 Essential Comedies Everyone Should See

28 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »
