Derek Zoolander and Hansel Stop by 'SNL' to Talk Fashion

19 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Curb Your Enthusiasm star/creator Larry David hosted last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, but the show was stolen during the regular sketch Weekend Update, with two surprise guests stopping by. Zoolander 2 stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made an unannounced appearance as their beloved characters Derek Zoolander and Hansel. While they were supposed to discuss Fashion Week in New York City, they instead discussed the fashion style of this year's Presidential candidates, where they shared their thoughts on Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and, of course, Donald Trump.

Their appearance came just days after the final trailer was released, which revealed that the obscure character Evil DJ (Justin Theroux) from the original Zoolander will return. In the original Zoolander, Justin Theroux had a small part as Evil DJ, who challenged both Derek Zoolander and Hansel to a break-dance showdown, set to the original "Relax." While he wasn't very well-known at the time, »

10 Huge Crossover Events For Marvel’s Phase 4

5 February 2016 10:53 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Gone are the days when something as small as sticking Black Widow into Iron Man 2 would be enough to excite the fans of Marvel’s films. Now, after two gigantic Avengers movies and all those teasing post-credits stings, audiences have come to expect a bit more.

In reaction to this, Marvel Studios have turned Captain America 3 into Captain America: Civil War, lifting beats Mark Millar’s massive comic book crossover of the same name and stuffing shedloads of other superheroes into what was originally perceived as a solo adventure for Steve Rogers. Meanwhile, Hulk is set to appear in Thor: Ragnarok and they’re also developing Infinity War – an Avengers story so huge in its crossover-friendly scope that they’ve had to spread it over two movies.

After these three films reach cinemas, audiences will continue expecting massive Marvel movies with tonnes of cameos and lots of inter-franchise crossover excitement. »

'Zoolander 2' Trailer #3 Brings in Evil DJ, A$AP Rocky and Skrillex

3 February 2016 12:49 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since production started on Zoolander 2 last year, we knew that star/writer/director Ben Stiller was bringing back several of his original Zoolander co-stars. Owen Wilson is back as Hansel, alongside Will Ferrell's Mugatu and Christine Taylor's Matilda Jeffries, but there's one obscure character we didn't know was returning, until now. Paramount Pictures has released a final trailer for this comedy sequel, which reveals that Justin Theroux is back as the Evil DJ, who presents a new remix of the 1980s Frankie Goes to Hollywood classic "Relax." And he is joined by music heavy hitters A$AP Rocky and Skrillex.

In the original Zoolander, Justin Theroux had a small part as Evil DJ, who challenged both Derek Zoolander and Hansel to a break-dance showdown, set to the original "Relax." While he wasn't very well-known at the time, Justin Theroux went on to become both an accomplished actor and writer, »

Iron Man 2 Writer Justin Theroux Reflects On Fan Reaction To The Divisive Sequel

2 February 2016 2:05 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Iron Man 2 is widely considered a disappointment by fans, mostly because it spent far too much time trying to balance Tony Stark’s story with a huge amount of set up for The Avengers.

In a new interview, screenwriter Justin Theroux has weighed in on the mixed reaction to the Jon Favreau helmed sequel, revealing that while he doesn’t regret certain parts of Iron Man 2, there are plenty of good reasons why it didn’t quite live up to expectations. However, perhaps hoping that he’ll get another chance to work with the studio, Theroux makes sure not to lay the blame for that at anyone’s feet in particular.

“You know, as happens very often, it is not easy to live up to expectations. And after the first ‘Iron Man,’ those for the sequel were extremely high. [You] go to see [the film] with a wealth of expectations…and »

Justin Theroux Reflects On Iron Man 2 Woes And Why He Didn't Think The Avengers Would Work

2 February 2016 7:42 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Iron Man 2 is one of Marvel's more divisive movies, and the crammed screenplay is perhaps the reason for that. Introducing new characters, villains, an arc about Tony Stark dying, and lots of nods to The Avengers, there was just way too much going on. That's something screenwriter Justin Theroux seems to agree with as he acknowledged in a recent interview that things on the sequel didn't quite go the way they were hoping.  "You know, as happens very often, it is not easy to live up to expectations," he said. "And after the first ‘Iron Man,’ those for the sequel were extremely high. [You] go to see [the film] with a wealth of expectations…and the film had a release date even before we started working on it so we had to work fast. And I will not complain about anything or anyone, mind you…It was a team effort and I »

Iron Man 2: "we tried to please the fans"

Screenwriter Justin Theroux has been chatting about where Iron Man 2 went wrong - and how he thought The Avengers wouldn't work.

It's been over five years since Iron Man 2's release, a film that was something of a bump in the road for Marvel. Whilst it made no shortage of cash, the movie remains one of the firm's more disappointing. We'd still argue that the opening 40 minutes or so are very good mind, it's just it never quite gels after that.

Justin Theroux was one of the screenwriters on Iron Man 2 (that was directed by Jon Favreau and, of course, starred Robert Downey Jr), and he's on the promotional trail for Zoolander 2 right now, which he's also penned. And he's been chatting about where Iron Man 2 went wrong.

"You know, as happens very often, it is not easy to live up to expectations", he told Bad Taste. »

Justin Theroux talks Iron Man 2, didn't think The Avengers would work

1 February 2016 7:00 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Back before Justin Theroux was leading one of my favourite television shows of the past decade (The Leftovers), he was penning the script for Iron Man 2. Unfortunately, Marvel's first sequel wasn't received nearly as well as they had hoped, with many critics focusing on the jumbled story-lines and countless elements which were only there to set up The Avengers. Justin Theroux told... Read More »

Five of the Best Marvel Movie Acting Performances

28 January 2016 6:58 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Marvel movies have been some of the highest grossing blockbuster films in recent memory, starting with the first Iron Man film in 2008 and culminating in 2012’s The Avengers. Even since The Avengers, however, most of these actors who portray the superheroes and villains that we love to watch on the big screen have been giving it their all in second and even third installments of these Marvel movie franchises. Although all of the performers in each Marvel movie have been pretty stellar (well, aside from Mickey Rourke in Iron Man 2, but there was A Lot wrong in that

8 Most Outlandish Thor: Ragnarok Rumours

27 January 2016 2:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics/Marvel Studios

While the first two Thor movies certainly weren’t bad (though a large portion of fans seem to dislike The Dark World as much as Iron Man 2), it’s fair to say that they haven’t had anywhere near the same impact as Iron Man and Captain America’s solo outings, neither critically nor at the box office.

One of their biggest issues seemingly stems from the fact that the God of Thunder’s adventures have struggled to find the right balance between Asgard and Midgard, but Thor: Ragnarok looks set to finally address that by taking the character on an epic cosmic adventure which might just see him facing down the end of the reality itself if that title is any indication. Throw in the fact that he’s being joined by a fellow Avenger, and things are definitely looking good when it comes to this 2017 Phase 3 release. »

How Wonder Woman First Came Into the Batman v Superman Story

26 January 2016 9:54 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is interesting for many reasons. It's the first real picture in the DC Extended Universe (the second, officially), and it's DC and WB's official declaration of war against Marvel and its own Cinematic Universe. Of course, we live in a different time from 2008, where one superhero was enough to kick off a shared world. Rather than spend five movies building up its roster, DC has opted to come out swinging, bringing us the main trinity of heroes in its second film.

Given the movie's title, the first two supers are a given: Batman and Superman. It's the third one, Wonder Woman, that has many people intrigued. Never has Wonder Woman ever been attempted on the silver screen before, and starting her out as a supporting character seems like a bold move, indeed. But how did Wonder Woman make her way into this film? After all, »

Don Cheadle says War Machine’s story is “pivotal” to Captain America: Civil War

25 January 2016 11:47 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With so many core Marvel Cinematic Universe superheroes set to appear in Captain America: Civil War, including Captain America, Iron Man and Black Widow, it’s easy to forget that a long list of more minor characters will be popping up as well.

On this list is Don Cheadle, who began playing James Rhodes/War Machine after Terrence Howard didn’t return for Iron Man 2. The actor has always been a reliable supporting character in the McU, but the size of his role in Civil War has been hard to gauge based on the footage from the film that has been released. But now, thanks to an interview with Cheadle, his exact role in Civil War has become a bit more clear.

Cheadle was promoting his directorial debut, Miles Ahead, which is being screened at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, when he revealed an interesting bit of news to SuperHeroHype. »

War Machine Apparently Will Be Pivotal To Captain America: Civil War

25 January 2016 2:45 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Captain America: Civil War is going to be packed. In fact, the blockbuster is going to be so chocked full that it’s hard to imagine how even Marvel’s main characters will find room to shine, let alone the supporting ones. This immediately brings me to Don Cheadle’s War Machine. But, rather than being just a bit-part player with little to nothing to do in Civil War, Cheadle came out and insisted he’s going to be rather pivotal.   Don Cheadle, who made his debut as James Rhodey Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine, in Iron Man 2, replacing Terrence Howard in the part, told SuperHeroHype that while Rhodey has only been a supporting player in recent Marvel films, he’s going to be downright integral to Captain America: Civil War. I never know where the character’s going »

Mark Ruffalo Compares ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ to ‘Midnight Run,’ Which Is Really All You Need to Hear

The first two Thor movies have their moments, but they’re among the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s more forgettable chapters. They never reach the heights of The Avengers or Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but they never tumble to the dismal lows of Iron Man 2. They’re just kind of there, a great showcase for a handful of […]

Who are the 67 characters in Avengers: Infinity War?

13 January 2016 3:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen speculates on who might be in the cast of Avengers: Infinity War…

It was revealed yesterday that the cast of Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2 was currently a wall with 67 character names on it. Sixty-seven. That’s a lot of characters. Suddenly that rumour of a $1 billion budget doesn’t seem too out of the realm of possibility.

But who will be in the film? I’ve gone back through the various Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to speculate on all 67 members of the cast, as well as make predictions on future films to fill out the numbers. This is not an exact science, as you can imagine.

Let’s start things off with what we can probably guess for certain – the cast of both Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War (as there is a lot of cross-over). Presuming that no one in the main cast dies »

British cinema behaviour: 67 examples of bad experiences

When things go wrong on a cinema trip, from bad customer service, noisy audiences, to, er, 'other things'...

As part of our survey on the behaviour of audiences in British cinemas, and how well cinema chains respond to it, we asked a couple of open questions. In this post, we're looking at where we asked for specific examples of good or bad behaviour and practice you've experienced from your cinema visits. We had over 2000 responses, so we've had to pick and choose. But here's a flavour of what you told us.

We've quoted verbatim, save for correcting the odd typo...

Technical problems

"We went to see The Martian at Cineworld in Nottingham recently. The first ten minutes of the movie was unwatchable, as the projector wasn't in focus. We went to alert the staff, who, while very off-hand and disinterested, did get the problem fixed. People arrived »

15 Great Moments Inside Movie Theaters in '15

1 January 2016 6:12 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Confession: I am extremely terrible about keeping a calendar, or even a letterboxd list which I update sporadically from time to time before forgetting again. In short the only "diary" of any sort I have is this ode to movies you're visiting now... The Film Experience. Nevertheless in reviewing the film year I realized that I haven't been frequenting NYC's wonderful repertory theaters as much as in past years. Must fix.  And I really have to do a better of keeping track of what I'm seeing in general lest I actually forget I saw something and it's missing from Lists. *gasp*

But I  ♥ going to the movies. And if you're reading this it's safe to assume that you do too. So it's list time. Please share your favorite moments of moviegoing this year in the comments.

Olivia Munn Shares A New Image Of 'Psylocke' From X-men: Apocalypse

1 January 2016 3:40 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Olivia Munn is posting her top 5 moments of 2015 to her Instagram account, and at 4 is being cast as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, so we have this new shot from the set featuring Munn in full costume. The Iron Man 2 actress added the following caption, describing this seemingly pretty ruthless take on the character. "She's a telekinetic telepath who chooses to kill with a sword because she wants to do it up close and intimate and killing from afar just seems too easy and no fun." Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to »
