'Zoolander 2' Trailer Kills Off Justin Bieber

18 November 2015 7:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

He was once the world's most famous male model. Even his looks were household names. Le Tigre. Magnum. And of course, Blue Steel. But that was a long, long, long time ago. Now, Derek Zoolander is back, and the world of male modeling has changed. Paramount Pictures has released the first full trailer for Zoolander 2, and it brings Derek out of retirement, along with a whole slew of celebrity cameos. Things kick of with the 'androgynous' Benedict Cumberbatch being asked if he has a hot dog or a bun. And it gets crazier from their.

Pen&#233lope Cruz stars as Montana Grosso. She recruits Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) to help stop a killer who is targeting the most beautiful people in the world. And this assassin is starting with Justin Bieber. All of the targets are dying with Derek's signature look. Blue Steel. And it is »

18 November 2015 6:32 AM, PST | | See recent news »

"There's only one criminal mastermind who could be behind all this." Paramount has unleashed the first amusing trailer for the long-awaited sequel Zoolander 2, starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as male models Zoolander and Hansel. This is a full-on trailer that actually spends time explaining the story and the characters, showing tons of footage including some hilarious sets and all the endlessly amazing costumes. Penélope Cruz co-stars with Kristen Wiig, Christine Taylor, Billy Zane and of course, Will Ferrell as Mugatu. I'm still not sure if this is going to top the original, but at least they're giving it a shot. Enjoy! Here's the new full-length trailer for Justin Theroux's Zoolander 2, direct from Paramount's YouTube: Zoolander 2 is directed by Ben Stiller (director of Zoolander, Tropic Thunder, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) and written by Justin Theroux (writer of Tropic Thunder, director of Dedication).

First Full-Length Trailer For ‘Zoolander 2’ Hits the Runway

18 November 2015 5:06 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

15 years later, Derek Zoolander and his ridiculous good looks are back. After a brief teaser without any actual footage, Paramount have now released a full-length trailer with shows off the returning cast and a handful of new faces. Once again directed Ben Stiller, this time the script is by Justin Theroux, who worked with Stiller on the immensely funny Tropic Thunder.

As for the story, “It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe,” Stiller tells Empire. I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s basically Derek and Hansel ten years later – though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them.”

With a cast featuring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Penélope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, »

'Zoolander 2' Posters Reunite Derek and Hansel

10 November 2015 12:49 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been more than three long months since the first trailer for Paramount's highly-anticipated comedy sequel Zoolander 2 arrived, and fans have been deprived of any new material featuring supermodel Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and his rival Hansel (Owen Wilson) ever since. With the February 12, 2016 release date rapidly approaching, IGN and Fashionista have debuted two new posters, which bring these fictional icons back together and hint at a new Chanel-inspired title, Zoolander No. 2. Both posters feature the appropriate tagline "Long Time No Z."

As you may recall, the first trailer didn't actually feature any footage from Zoolander 2, merely showing Derek Zoolander getting confused about various versions of the sequel's title. Perhaps these posters could be leading up to the next trailer, but Paramount hasn't confirmed when we may see new footage. No plot details have been revealed yet, but we do know there will be plenty of familiar and »

Afm: Ben Stiller's Red Hour Signs New Partnership with Bold Films

9 November 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ben Stiller's film production company, Red Hour, which is responsible such films as "Zoolander," "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story," "Tropic Thunder" and "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," has pacted with Bold Films for a new slate of film, television and digital projects. Bold Films, which launched a decade ago, will provide much of the development overhead and production financing for Stiller's new ventures. The London, La and NYC-based production house has delivered such awards contenders as last year's "Whiplash" and "Nightcrawler," as well as Nicolas Winding Refn's surprise 2011 cult hit, "Drive." Nicky Weinstock, former creative head of Apatow Productions and senior vice president of Chernin Entertainment, will be a part of the new team.  “Our financial backing from Bold enables us to put together films and shows both inside and outside the traditional studio and network systems," stated »

25 great movie performances by actors in multiple roles

5 November 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




From Thomas F Wilson in Back To The Future to Nicolas Cage and John Travolta in Face/Off - when actors play multiple roles...

The dramatic use of actors playing multiple characters is a bold and rather theatrical device that has its ups and downs. It goes at least as far back as Captain Hook being played by the same actor who plays the Darling children's father in stage productions of Peter Pan, a technique largely adopted in film adaptations of the story, too (hello to Jason Isaacs).

It's used a lot in cinema too. Done well, it's impressive, but when it's bad, it's Jack & Jill. Whether used in comedy or drama or outright horror, there are countless examples of actors delivering terrific performances in more than one role at once, and that's before we even get past Cloud Atlas. Still, we've had a go at totting up 25 of the best. »

But a Walking Shadow: Franco’s Faulkner Redux Merely Serviceable

Continuing to thumb his nose at naysayers, James Franco plunges onward into his own particular directorial abyss with his second William Faulkner adaptation, The Sound and the Fury. Much like its predecessor, 2013’s As I Lay Dying, the actor-filmmaker manages a troubled synopsis of Faulkner’s enigmatic text but still remains unable to strike a visual resonance necessitating his undertaking.

Ambitious and a bit pretentious, Franco’s cinematic hubris may know no bounds, though it’s still refreshing to see him shirk the limiting lasso of mainstream sensibility in his personal crusade to create something meaningful. That said, there are several moments reaching a certain poetic pitch, collapsing a quartet of perspectives into a simplified triptych. Complex characterizations and the narrative resonance of Faulkner aren’t quite intact with this otherwise faithful transplant, but its first and third acts maintain a watchable melodramatic energy. »

The Women of ‘The Final Girls’ Talk Unique Mother-Daughter Relationship and Metanarratives

15 October 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Out in limited release and available on VOD is the horror comedy with a fantasy twist, The Final Girls. From director Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas), the film follows young Max (Taissa Farmiga) a year after her scream-queen mother (Malin Akerman) dies. When her cinephile friend invites her out to a celebratory screening of the film she was most famous for, Max and her group of friends are transported to the actual reality of the 80s horror slasher.  Once there the group must find a way to survive the relentless, murdering Billy. That’s a lot of setup and yet the The Final Girls manages to be quite smooth and smart in the way things are laid out. While the film mostly plays for laughs instead of horror, there are some more interesting aspects working at the core of the film when it comes to Max and her »

Der Bunker Review [Fantastic Fest 2015]

26 September 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s hard for a mother to remain unemotional when she watches her baby leave the proverbial coop, but Der Bunker is what happens when those feelings manifest into a hostage scenario of sorts. It’s your atypical twisted fairytale about a boy, locked away from the world without any sense of maturation, but that’s only where we begin. Der Bunker then delves into absolute insanity by introducing the likes of a festering wound that oversees the homemade prison like a God, primitive punishments, and questionable breastfeeding practices – a line of brilliance that German filmmaker Nikias Chryssos dances upon with unimaginable ferocity.

Pit Bukowski plays a young academic (referred to as “Student”), who seeks quiet refuge so he can advance the realms of science with his new Higgs particle theory (science-y stuff). Upon entering his newly rented room, the student meets a family who is as frugal as they are strange. »

At least, that's according to What's the Mashup, who set the song of the year to 100 famous movie dance scenes. In the five minute video, cinematic history is rewritten as everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Tom Cruise in "Risky Business" to Tom Cruise in "Tropic Thunder" finds themselves mysteriously overtaken by "Uptown Funk." The mashup is an excellent catalogue of cinema's best boogies, but it also raises some questions; namely, how does every scene sync up so well with "Uptown Funk?" Is "Uptown Funk" the universal connective thread? Will the future be a choice between moving to Mars and moving to Bruno Mars? "Uptown Funk": friend or foe? Watch the video above and decide for. »

Weekend Report -'Compton' Wins 'War Room' Rumble

29 August 2015 8:28 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

With $13.2M in domestic box office Universal's Straight Outta Compton held off the upstart War Room to claim the #1 position on the charts for the third weekend in a row. War Room, which beat Compton in theaters on Friday, made $11M with a robust $9,692 per screen average. The top of the heap was still a pretty low heap, however, as the top 12 made $68.8M, off 22% from last year's $88.2M, which was a weak weekend itself. That $68.8M also gives this frame the dubious distinction of being the lowest grossing weekend of the year, 12% lower than March 6 - 8th's $78.3M. The newcomers that helped achieve that feat included No Escape, the Owen Wilson/Pierce Brosnan military coup flick, which the Weinsteins state came in just a little under their $9M estimate with $8.3M. On 2,470 screens that $3,355 psa is better than the $2,850 that last year's late-August Pierce Brosnan movie offering, The November Man, »

It doesn’t look like the failure of Fantastic Four has put Michael B. Jordan off comic book movies, with The Wrap reporting that the actor is in talks to star in Blood Brothers, based upon the Dark Horse vampire title.

The action comedy is described as “a buddy picture involving two party-loving vampires/best friends who team up to take on a villain obsessed with the apocalypse and destroying humanity.”

The comic is written by Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller, and was based on an original screenplay by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder).
