The real reason I'm confused by how ugly the 'Get Hard' rape jokes are

22 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Because they can do better. I was told today on Facebook that we should stop talking about "Get Hard" this week. Never mind that in a typical week leading up to the release of a movie, you'd typically see many articles about it, exploring different aspects with interviews and reviews and maybe premiere photos, and no one seems to complain about that. The reason I was told to stop talking about it is because we are supposedly "too sensitive" about the way the film leans on some really ugly stereotypes and lazy comic set-ups, and in doing so, managing to be unpleasant and even offensive. I've been told that we should stop discussing this because "it's a joke." The only people I see wringing their hands that things are getting "too P.C." are those who want to be able to say anything to anyone without consequence. That's really what »

'Get Hard,' 'Home' Could Be in Tight Race This Weekend

23 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

DreamWorks Animation's Home (2015) and Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart comedy Get Hard could both open north of $30 million this weekend, which would put them in a close race for first place.Meanwhile, holdovers The Divergent Series: Insurgent and Cinderella will likely battle for third place with with around $20 million.Playing at 3,175 locations, Get Hard checks off a handful of the boxes required for a comedy hit. First, it has two broadly-appealing, frequently successful co-stars in Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. With the exception of a few odd choices*Land of the Lost, Semi-Pro*most Ferrell movies wind up earning at least $75 million at the domestic box office. His most recent, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, wrapped up with $127.4 million last year.In the time since the second Anchorman opened, Hart has starred in four movies, all of which opened north of $20 million. The biggest of those was Ride Along, which opened »

Get Hard movie review: go directly to jail

26 March 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

All the comedic and visual elan of an amateur YouTube fratboy prank, including nonstop rape jokes and rampant homophobia. Are you laughing yet? I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Kevin Hart; hot and cold on Will Ferrell

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Did someone get to Will Ferrell, and to Adam McKay, Ferrell’s partner in Gary Sanchez Productions and one of the writers of Get Hard? Because just a few years ago, the pair made the very funny and surprisingly culturally incisive The Other Guys, with its anti-Wall Street-shenanigans theme and its amazing end credits, which basically amounted to a Michael Moore-style rant about the 2008 economic collapse. And now, Get Hard is exactly opposite of the sort of thematic followup we should have expected from them, one that utterly lacks the courage of its convictions. »

Movie Review – Get Hard (2015)

26 March 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get Hard, 2015

Directed by Etan Cohen

Starring Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Craig T. Nelson, Alison Brie, T.I, Edwina Findley Dickerson, Ariana Neal, Paul Ben-Victor

Synopsis:

When millionaire James King is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars.

Imagine you’re Will Ferrell. There was a period in time when you were considered to be comedy royalty and everything you touched turned to belly laughs. Sadly, the last few years have been rather unkind and audiences have started to become immune to your efforts. Movies like The Other Guys and The Campaign blot a once stellar record of movies and the diabolical barrel-scrapping Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has shown that you can’t even go back to the well and capture lightning a second time. So what do you do? Attach yourself to the latest thing in comedy, »

Marvel Wants Adam McKay to Direct a Movie; Is It 'Inhumans'?

25 March 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new report claims that Marvel and Disney are trying to lock-in Ant-Man co-writer Adam McKay to direct one of their upcoming Phase Three Movies. Latino Review has the scoop. Though, they aren't quite sure which movie he is best suited for. Could it be Inhumans or Captain Marvel? And is Black Panther completely off the table?

As you may know, Marvel furiously tried to get Adam McKay, best known for his Will Ferrell collaborations such as Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Other Guys and Anchorman, to direct Ant-Man when original director Edgar Wright walked away due to creative differences. While Peyton Reed took the job, Adam McKay did step in for a complete rewrite of the screenplay, which he did alongside star and frequent collaborator Paul Rudd. It seems that Marvel is quite pleased with the work Adam McKay brought to the table in helping the »

Showtime’s ‘Happyish’ gets a new trailer

9 March 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The untimely death of Philip Seymour Hoffman last year left many projects in limbo, most notably the Hunger Games movie franchise, where he was in the midst of shooting for a pivotal role in the series. However, Hoffman’s demise also put to an end the actor’s transition to television, as he was set to take on the lead role in the Showtime series Happyish, following in the footsteps of numerous performers who had made the transition to the small screen. While Hoffman’s demise put the show in jeopardy, it soon righted itself, going in a different direction by having Steve Coogan step into the lead. Coogan, who has previously found success in television with the Alan Partridge character across numerous shows, as well as movies such as Hamlet 2 and The Other Guys, plays the role of Thom Payne. The show’s synopsis is as follows:

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Exclusive: Felissa Rose on Her Intimidatingly Loving Character in Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard

12 February 2015 11:15 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Many horror fans met Felissa Rose for the first time one sinister summer at Camp Arawak back in the early 1980s. Though perhaps best known for playing Angela Baker in Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult classic, Sleepaway Camp, Rose has portrayed a wide variety of memorable characters in the horror genre since the turn of the century. Her latest role, a deeply religious survivor in the rural town of Elwood in the age of a zombie apocalypse, is certainly no exception.

With Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay, we caught up with Rose to discuss her intense character, working with Billy Zane and Dee Wallace, Scream Factory’s Sleepaway Camp Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, and much more.

You worked with writer/director Harrison Smith in last year’s Camp Dread. What was your experience working with him again on Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard? »

Emotions run high at Santa Barbara tribute to Michael Keaton

1 February 2015 9:57 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Barbara — Saturday night the Santa Barbara International Film Festival shook things up a bit with the annual Modern Master Award tribute, this year dedicated to "Birdman" star Michael Keaton. Colleagues and co-stars sent pre-recorded messages to honor the actor, emotions ran high at the end of the evening and the fest had a special surprise in store for moderator Leonard Maltin as well. First, the retrospective. It was a typical deep dive into a career, the highlights of which you can read in our recent series of interviews with the actor. Keaton was clearly overwhelmed by seeing things in this context as his "Multiplicity" co-star Andie MacDowell was on hand to present an introductory clip package of career highlights. "I feel like I'm gonna pass out," he said as he took the stage to begin the evening. Maltin noted Keaton's first scene from "Night Shift," as we hear the »

Don't call it a comeback: Michael Keaton on biding time, waiting for a 'Birdman'

29 January 2015 11:12 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — It's been really easy for the media to talk about "Birdman" and Michael Keaton's award-winning performance in terms of being a "comeback," and of course, the meta angle of playing an actor who formerly starred as a superhero is just begging for attention. On one hand it's a fortunate hook to help sell the movie, but on the other, it's been a pretty simplistic reduction, not necessarily one that Keaton has had a big problem with, but one that could certainly be discussed with a little more nuance. You might have to go back to the late '90s for examples of the actor's work that really landed culturally, but in the time since, while he's certainly taken a few breathers, he's worked very consistently. He's done TV spots on popular shows. He's starred in acclaimed TV movies like "Live from Baghdad" and the TNT miniseries "The Company. »

Ex On The Beach: 9 things we learned from tonight's premiere

27 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ex On The Beach returned tonight - and thank goodness, because we badly needed a few lessons in dating. Pleasingly, the new cast continue the trend of being pretty much the worst teachers possible. Read on to find out what the eight 'sexy singles' taught us tonight...

1. The new Ex On The Beach cast started out strong.

Morgan's ideal woman has an hourglass figure, no body fat, a beautiful face and "knows how to use a knife and fork". Aim high, Morgan!

Melissa has been "completely unsatisfied" by men over the years, hates "bitchy" women ("I'll be a bigger bitch back") and kind of won us over by sneering at Morgan's eyebrows/accent/general being.

Connor says "naughty" a lot. Like, a lot. Like, stop saying "naughty". "I've banged probably about 26 birds at the moment. Not too bad, considering I'm only 18. When I'm 30, I want to have shagged at least 30 girls. »

Will Ferrell causes mayhem at basketball game for new comedy Daddy’s Home

23 January 2015 3:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For a few moments on Wednesday night across the pond, it seemed that Will Ferrell had gone a few steps too far. Coverage on all of the major Us news networks were running footage of the comedian causing havoc at last night Los Angeles Lakers game as they took on New Orleans Pelicans, but somehow unbeknown to them, Ferrell’s antics were all in the name of comedy.

Shooting scenes for his new film, Daddy’s Home, Ferrell took to the court during the half-time break to shake things up, including throwing a basketball straight into the face of a cheerleader, and causing quite a reaction across all social media platforms. You can see some fan videos and pictures of Ferrell’s antics here…

The new film sees Ferrell re-team with his The Other Guys co-star Mark Wahlberg (The Gambler) in the new film from Sean Anders and John Morris (Dumb and Dumber To, »

Watch a Drunken Will Ferrell Attack a Cheerleader at a Basketball Game

22 January 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you happened to be at last night's Pelicans game in New Orleans, you were treated to quite the bonus surprise when someone who looked and sounded an awful lot like a drunk Will Ferrell took to the court and attempted to make a long-distance shot to win a prize. You were greeted with even more of a shock when Ferrell failed miserably, instead drilling a nearby cheerleader in the head with the ball, dropping her to the floor. Sadly it wasn't for a bizarre Space Jam remake. And no, Ferrell wasn't actually drunk, as he appears in the clip. It was all for a scene from a new comedy called Daddy's Home that reunites Ferrell with his The Other Guys costar Mark Wahlberg. In it they play two men competing for the affections of the same woman. We're guessing this...

Will Ferrell And Mark Wahlberg Shoot Scenes For ‘Daddy’s Home’ At Basketball Game

22 January 2015 12:26 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg (The Other Guys) have reunited for a brand new comedy from directors Sean Anders and John Morris entitled Daddy’S Home, and it look like they both took themselves to a basketball game in the Us last night to shoot some pretty big scenes.

When a divorced guy’s (Ferrell) ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc.

That’s the basic gist of the plot, and it looks like Ferrell is wreaking said havoc in this scene, filmed at the Pelicans game in New Orleans last night. From the slurry speech and Ferrell’s body language, it looks like his character is pretty hammered.

Watch a couple of clips from the filming below.

Daddy’S Home is scheduled for release later this year.
