See How Much the "Entourage" Cast Has Changed Since the Show's Premiere

4 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since we first met big screen heartthrob Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) and his boys, Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric "E" Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) on HBO's "Entourage." And, who can forget our favorite hot-headed agent, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven)?! The eight-season series was filled to the brim with celebrity cameos, hot Hollywood nightclubs and a whole lot of partying -- and we loved every minute of it. While we finally get to see these boys back together on-screen in the "Entourage" movie on June 5, toofab is taking a look at what Vinny and his pack-mates have been up to since the show premiered over a decade ago in 2004. Grenier was probably best known for starring in the movie "Drive Me Crazy" before he nabbed his "Entourage" role. He later co-starred with Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada" and directed two documentaries, »

Danny Collins review: Al Pacino gets his groove back

27 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Dan Fogelman; Screenwriter: Dan Fogelman; Starring: Al Pacino, Annette Bening, Jennifer Garner, Nick Offerman, Christopher Plummer, Bobby Cannavale, Melissa Benoist; Running time: 106 mins; Certificate: 15

Al Pacino gets his groove back as ageing rock star Danny Collins in a lively comedy-drama that draws from his own star aura and sends it up, too. At the age of 70, the titular Collins is a zoot-suited cliché, leaning on drugs, booze and a wife who is young enough to be his granddaughter, but he also has the saving grace of self-awareness and an impish sense of humour, which combined with Pacino's natural charm, helps him rise above some rather obvious psychological quandaries.

Writer/director Dan Fogelman (who scripted Crazy Stupid Love. and Last Vegas) claims the film is "kind of based on a true story, a little bit," a teasingly tenuous reference to a bit of fan-mail received by musician Steve Tilston from »

Two Casino Movies That Get It Right

25 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Casinos are the ultimate fantasy destination. Every single player that enters the gaming area harbors the fantasy that this time could be the time that they hit it big. This happens whether the player is a penny slot player, sitting at the $100 minimum blackjack table, or betting “cranberries” at baccarat.

Filmmakers have long tried to incorporate this fantasy, and for the most part they have failed. The game they use most often is blackjack. The reasons for this are fairly simple; most people know how to play blackjack and they are aware that blackjack is one of the only games in the casino that can be beaten.

Two films where blackjack plays an integral part of the plot do get it right.

21 is the semi-biographical story of a group of MIT students who study the science of card counting and make weekend trips to Las Vegas to use their skill at the table. »

Nicolas Cage, Mike Figgis Reteam on Thriller ‘Exit 147′ (Exclusive)

15 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nicolas Cage is reteaming with his “Leaving Las Vegas” helmer Mike Figgis on thriller “Exit 147.”

Exit 147″ is repped in international markets by Umedia and written by Travis Milloy (“Pandorum”). Cage will star as a cop with a warped sense of justice.

The plot of “Exit 147″ intertwines various characters and narratives, including Cage’s policeman, a woman escaping her abusive partner, a man that Cage arrests — all get embroiled in a series of sadistic mind games.

“This is the kind of story that turns up once in a blue moon. It is the perfect vehicle for Nicolas, and I am excited to be back in business with this great actor. I love this combination of dark and scary balanced with edgy humor,” said Figgis, who added that it was a “dream project for a small ensemble of actors.”

Cage last worked with Figgis on “Leaving Last Vegas,” which »

Anne Hathaway And Robert De Niro Strike Up An Unlikely Friendship In The Intern Trailer

14 May 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether it’s a ruling patriarch in Meet the Parents or a best friend revisiting his youth in Last Vegas, Hollywood veteran Robert De Niro is no stranger to playing the archetypal old guy in movies. One who doesn’t understand the Internet or the lingo of 2015. All of these tropes and more can be glimpsed in the first trailer for Nancy Meyers’ new comedy, The Intern, but at its core it’s about an unlikely friendship between De Niro and Interstellar star Anne Hathaway.

Stepping into the shoes of one Ben Whittaker, Meyers’ latest will see De Niro play a man fed up with retirement, and so he quickly enrolls in an internship program with a online fashion giant in order to get back into the swing of things. Here, he’ll meet Jules Ostin (Hathaway), a well-established visionary who founded the company herself and is now overseeing its »

Michael Douglas “Lucked Out” Marrying Catherine Zeta-Jones

13 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Michael Douglas thinks he “really lucked out” marrying Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The 70-year-old actor “spoiled” his wife – with who he has children Dylan, 14, and Carys, 12 – on Mother’s Day at the weekend because she deserved to be treated well.

Explaining he presented Catherine with flowers and gifts, Michael added: “[And I gave her] lots of love and affection. I lucked out, I really lucked out.”

His thrilled wife said: “It was one of the best days I’ve had in many, many years, we were all together, I got spoiled rotten, I must be doing something right.”

While they are happy in their marriage, the couple – who split briefly in 2013 – have mixed opinions on working together.

Catherine, 45, said: “If he wasn’t my husband, I’d like to work with Michael Douglas, it’s true, he’s a great actor.”

However, her spouse told ‘Extra': “I would like to work with you any way I can get you, »

Hunting Elephants | Review

7 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Beasts of Burden: Levi’s Slapstick Heist Film Runs Amuck

For his sophomore film, Israeli director Reshef Levi inserts Patrick Stewart alongside the likes of Sasson Gabai, Moni Moshonov, and Moshe Ivgy for a comedic bank heist in Hunting Elephants. While there’s mild amusement to be had amongst this group of sassy old codgers, the whole endeavor feels a bit forced. Snippets of characters directly addressing the camera frequently distract as Levi and co-writer Regey Levi cut across timespans in attempt to give the scenario added depth. Reinforcing stereotypes rather than playing with them, Levi’s broad scenario feels tonally akin to something like Last Vegas (2013) but entrenched in more archaic stagnation.

Daniel (Zvika Hadar) is a security guard at a bank. While explaining to his twelve year old son Jonathan (Gil Blank) how the new security system works, replete with all the proper codes needed to gain entry, »

New Trailer For Al Pacino's Danny Collins

22 April 2015 3:52 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Inspired by the true story of folk singer Steve Tilston, Danny Collins sees Al Pacino as the titular aging rock star who can't give up his hard living ways, until he discovers a long lost letter from John Lennon which prompts him him to embark on a journey to rediscover his family and himself. With the movie hitting our shores this Summer, a new international trailer has come our way. Screenwriter Dan Fogelman's (Cars, Crazy Stupid Love, Last Vegas) directorial debut promises to a heartfelt and gently humourous affair, anchored by a lead actor on the best form he's been in for a long while. From this trailer alone, Danny feels like a genuinely likable character, and that's all down to Pacino and some great chemistry with the rest of his cast, including Christopher Plummer, Annette Bening, and Bobby Cannavale   Released: 29th May »

‘Diary of a Teenage Girl’ Star Joins Elle Fanning in New Movie (Exclusive)

20 March 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bel Powley, star of “Diary of a Teenage Girl,” will join Elle Fanning in period romance “A Storm in the Stars,” to be directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour.

Amy Baer will produce the film for Gidden Media. Joannie Burstein and Rebecca Miller are executive producing.

Emma Jensen’s screenplay centers on the love affair between the charismatic poet Percy Shelley and the brilliant 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin. That tumultuous relationship ultimately inspired her to write “Frankenstein.”

Powley will portray Claire Clairmont, Mary’s stepsister who has a hunger for attention and complicates Mary and Percy’s relationship when she moves in with them.

“Bel is fearless and immensely talented,” Baer said. “She immediately understood Claire – a complicated young woman who struggled in the shadow of her stepsister.”

Al Pacino Rings True as Danny Collins

19 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

This likable movie rises or falls on Al Pacino’s ability to convince us that he’s an aging pop star…and he does. Danny Collins follows a familiar story path, but it’s such a pleasure to watch Pacino (and fellow cast members Christopher Plummer, Annette Bening, Bobby Cannavale, and Jennifer Garner) that it barely matters. I’ve made this comparison before, but this kind of movie is the cinematic equivalent of comfort food. Dan Fogelman (The Guilt Trip, Last Vegas) makes his directorial debut with a screenplay he wrote about a Billy Joel-like singer who’s coasting on decades of fame, giving his aging audiences exactly what they want to hear—especially his signature song, “Baby...

Danny Collins Review

18 March 2015 7:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“The following is kind of based on a true story, a little bit,” reads the epigraph from Danny Collins.

From the very beginning, Danny Collins nods to the kind of movie that it is while recognizing what it doesn’t want to be. Everything on the outside makes Dan Fogelman’s (writer of Cars, Crazy Stupid Love and Last Vegas) directorial debut seem like a Lifetime movie of the week: the queasy biopic elements, the TV movie aesthetic and the “inspirational” theme that “it’s never too late to turn your life around and find redemption.”

Yet, in the canon of sentimental schlock, Danny Collins is a quiet revelation, a film that subverts all expectations and becomes quietly sentimental and poignant without ever feeling manipulative or cheap. It’s a film that plans out all the beats it will hit and does indeed hit them, but maybe not in the way we first foresaw. »

'Beauty and the Beast,' Arrives in March 2017, Gets Emma Thompson

16 March 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After Cinderella crushed the competition at the box office this past weekend, Disney is sticking with spring releases for their live-action fairytales as the studio has just announced that their new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast (which will be getting a 3D release) will arrive in theaters on March 17th 2017. And with that news comes a couple new additions to the cast as well. Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) will be playing Mrs. Potts while Kevin Kline (Last Vegas) will be playing the father of Belle (Emma Watson). But we're wondering who will play the bickering duo of Lumiere and Cogsworth in the adaptation. Otherwise, as we've previously reported, Dan Stevens (The Guest) will play The Beast, Luke Evans (The Hobbit) will play Gaston and Josh Gad will play his sidekick Le Fou. There's bound to be more casting announced very soon with some key supporting roles left to be filled. »

Dan in Real Life: Fogelman’s Sugary Directorial Debut Hobbles its Own Charms

Screenwriter and producer Dan Fogelman makes a high profile directorial debut with Danny Collins, nabbing a handful of high profile names to lead his glossy family issue drama wrapped in melodramatic showbiz antics. When he’s not writing directly for children and family friendly audiences (Cars; Bolt; Tangled), Fogelman’s screenplays are often gilded with jejunish countenances (The Guilt Trip; Last Vegas), the types of outrageous yet uncomplicated cinematic fabrications that hail from some medicated hinterland beyond the realm of mere escapism. His first stint as a director finds him returning to this hypertrophic mode of drama wherein potentially insurmountable life tragedies get mushed together to equal one big positive, though kernels of authentic emotions sometimes shine through the contrivances.

Danny Collins (Al Pacino) is an aging rock star currently touring with another greatest hits album. »
