Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Jamie Dornan threw up while auditioning for Rock of Ages movie

18 February 2015 1:19 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jamie Dornan has revealed that he vomited during an audition for 2012's Rock of Ages movie.

The actor told Variety that he was in "the worst situation ever" after he decided to take a shot of whiskey to relax his vocal cords for the audition.

Dornan said: "I had to sing 'Waiting for a Girl Like You'. It's nearly impossible to sing, and I've got quite a deep voice when I sing. My audition was at 10 in the morning on the Warner Bros lot.

"I convinced myself it would be a good idea to have a bit of whiskey to relax my vocal cords and maybe as a bit of a confidence booster. Suddenly, I took a swig of Jameson and I instantly f**king puked."

He continued: "So I'm standing with all these executives driving around in golf carts, as I'm vomiting on the lot. It was a bad look. »

Peter Dinklage’s Leprechaun Comedy O’Lucky Day Snags Director Adam Shankman

16 February 2015 1:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After years of solid work as a background player, Peter Dinklage finally broke into the mainstream with his terrific performance as conniving, charismatic Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, and as the fifth season of that series approaches, it appears that Hollywood is finally seeing the actor as leading man material.

Paramount Pictures has recruited prolific helmer Adam Shankman to direct Dinklage in O’Lucky Day, an R-rated comedy in the vein of Bad Santa about a con man who poses as a real, live leprechaun. The project, which has been in the works for sometime, is described as being “deep in R-rated territory but wrapped around an emotional heart.”

Andrew Dodge (Bad Words) penned the script, which is undergoing rewrites by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th).

O’Lucky Day certainly sounds like it could yield a fair share of laughs, though Shankman’s involvement isn’t exactly thrilling news. »

Rock of Ages director in talks to helm Peter Dinklage's Leprechaun comedy

13 February 2015 1:25 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Deadline is reporting Adam Shankman (Rock Of Ages, Hairspray) is in talks to direct O'Lucky Day, a comedy about "a con man who may or may not be a real Leprechaun, but who certainly passes himself off as one" starring star Peter Dinklage. The tone of the film has been described as similar to Bad Santa, so hopefully that means the film will be getting an R-rating. We first learned about the movie back in October of 2013 when Dinklage joined the project, and the »

Adam Shankman Set to Direct Peter Dinklage's Leprechaun Comedy

12 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in the fall of 2013, we learned that "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage was going to star in an R-rated comedy where he played a man who tells people that he's a leprechaun. Now Deadline has word that the film is called O'Lucky Day, and Hairspray and Rock of Ages director Adam Shankman is in talks to get behind the camera. Some more details on the story have also surfaced as it's described as following a con man who may or may not be a real leprechaun, but at the very least, convinces people that he is one. However, with Shankman on board as director, I'm not entirely sure this will be R-rated comedy anymore. The original script came from Andrew Dodge, who wrote Bad Words for Jason Bateman's directorial debut, but it's been rewritten by Damian Shannon & Mark Swift (Freddy vs. Jason). That means there's still a »

Vertical Entertainment has announced the acquisition of the North American rights to "Eden," a thriller directed by Shyam Madiraju. The "Lord Of The Flies"-esque story follows the crew of an American soccer team after their plane crashes off the coast of a deserted island. The group separates into two factions, increasingly at odds as resources and food supplies begin to run out. Producer Juan Sola said about the deal: "We are excited to once again partner with Vertical Entertainment on the release of our survival thriller, 'Eden'. The collaboration on our first film 'Anna' was a great experience." The film stars Ethan Peck (grandson of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck), Jessica Lowndes ("90210"), Diego Boneta ("Rock of Ages"), James Remar, Sung Kang, and Nate Parker ("Beyond The Lights").

Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens joins Fox’s live Grease musical

18 January 2015 5:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox has announced the first casting for its upcoming Grease live musical, with Julianna Hough (Rock of Ages) set to portray Sandy Olsson and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) securing the role of Rizzo.

“Grease is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy,” states Hough (via EW). “My siblings and I watched it and played it out over and over when we were kids. This is my dream role and performing it live on television will be one of the most thrilling opportunities I’ve had in my career so far.”

“Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge,” adds Hudgens. “She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. »

Fox Plans "Grease" Musical, NBC On "Pan" Flop

17 January 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

NBC had huge success with "The Sound of Music Live" two years ago, pulling 18.5 million viewers for the one-off event. Yet while many know "The Sound of Music" off by heart, inexplicably the network chose the far less popular or even known stage musical version of "Peter Pan" for a follow-up.

Understandably, the ratings fell with just 9.1 million viewers tuning in for that broadcast. At the TCA Winter Tour presentation this week, NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt put the blame for the failure on the lack of star power and the lack of awareness of "Peter Pan" as a stage musical. They also suggested either "The Wiz" or "The Music Man" for their next attempt.

If there's one musical movie as ubiquitous and well-known as "The Sound of Music" though, it's "Grease" and Fox announced plans today for a live television production of "Grease: The Musical". The broadcast plans to »

Just a day after NBC announced that the network's next live musical will either be The Music Man or The Wiz, Fox revealed at their Television Critics Association panel Saturday that they too will enter the live musical arena in January 2016 with a "re-imagining" of the Fifties' rock n' roll musical Grease.

Julianne Hough will fill the Olivia Newton-John role of Sandy in what executive producer Marc Platt called "a shared entertainment event suited for today's audience," while Vanessa Hudgens will don the character Rizzo's Pink Ladies jacket, Entertainment Weekly reports. »

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

10 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

The suave American actor looked set for big things in the '90s thanks to impressive roles in Dead Calm and Tombstone, but his time in the purple Phantom »
