The Internship is kind of a bizarre comedy. It removes the potential for mean-spirited humor by not featuring two leads consistently bust each other’s balls. Director Shawn Levy‘s film is somewhat of an anti-ironic comedy, to the point where that type of self-impressed smirking is literally put down in the movie itself. That makes sense when you consider Levy’s body of work. His movies are as innocent and audience-friendly as one can imagine. From The Night at the Museum movies to, a personal favorite, Big Fat Liar, there’s zero cynicism in their content. For his reunion film between Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, Levy explores potentially depressing material: two friends whose lives fall out from under them and, once they start interning at Google, the possibility of failure is always high. In spite of their low chances of obtaining a full-time position at Google, the two characters, and »

Antoine Fuqua.s Olympus Has Fallen will have to throw some creative wrenches into the works in order to distance itself from the plethora of other films, both good and bad, that are about attacks on the White House and presidential kidnappings. The trailers make the film look thrilling enough, but that.s what trailers are supposed to do. After spending sometime on the Olympus Has Fallen supplemental website, it.s clear that the film.s promotional techniques are of above average quality, which will hopefully reflect on the film itself. It.s touting itself as the White House action movie, kind of similar to how Air Force One and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian used their locations as major selling points, and the website fully delivers on this notion of giving viewers .inside access. to the White House and its staff. One should always go into »

20th Century Fox is moving forward with Night at the Museum 3. Ben Stiller is returning as security guard Larry Daley and Shawn Levy is directing. The studio has slated the follow-up for a December 25, 2014 release date. The sequel is currently the only movie occupying the Christmas Day frame, for now.
Back in December 2010, screenwriter Thomas Lennon hinted that the sequel was being written, although he refused to confirm or deny his own statement.

Their involvement has not been confirmed at this time.

Said to be on the way for some time , Twentieth Century Fox's family sequel Night at the Museum 3 has been scheduled to hit theaters on December 25, 2014. Shawn Levy will return to the franchise as director with Ben Stiller reprising his role as museum security guard Larry Daley.

There's no word yet on where the third adventure might be set, but don't be surprised to see other familiar faces returning beyond Stiller.

Trevor Hogg chats with Guillaume Rocheron about fulfilling his ambition of becoming a visual effects supervisor...
“I always liked painting but I was not good at it,” states French Visual Effects Supervisor Guillaume Rocheron who is based at the Vancouver facility for the Motion Picture Company (Mpc). When a childhood friend introduced him to the idea of creating digital images, the young artist flourished. “I was doing simple programming. I was interested by computers and for me it was a good medium because it was that mix of technology and artistic things. I started to make images at home and little short films; that’s how I got into it. I saw Jurassic Park  and Terminator 2 . You see those films and its like, ‘Wow! How did they make that?’ You realize that they made this in a computer and you think, ‘Maybe I can do that one day.’ One of »
If you were to ask me to list the actors best suited to slip on David Hasselhoff.s trademark red swim trunks for Paramount.s planned reboot of the one-time hit television program Baywatch, Saturday Night Live standout Bill Hader probably wouldn.t be in the top 100 selections. Which explains why he.s now the person chosen by the studio to lead the charge across the beach and into the ocean. Hader, whose recent film credits have expanded to include mainstream blockbusters like Men In Black 3 (where he played Andy Warhol), and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian -- as well as smaller movies like Paul and Adventureland -- will take on the lead role in the Baywatch film, The Wrap reports. Reno 911! co-creator Robert Ben Garant will direct the film, which reportedly will find the Malibu lifeguards exploring an off-the-coast oil rig that turns out to »
