14 April 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The first trailer has been released for dark comedy God’s Pocket, about a murder in a blue-collar neighborhood in Philadelphia, which stars the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro, Christina Hendricks, and Richard Jenkins. God’s Pocket was screened at the Sundance Film Festival this year, marking one of Hoffman’s last appearances before his passing.

John Slattery (Mad Men’s Roger Sterling) takes his first stab at directing and writing a feature film – he adapted the script from Peter Dexter’s novel of the same name. Dexter also wrote The Paperboy, which was made into a movie starring Matthew McConaughey, »

6 things I learned from seeing Zac Efron's naked torso at the MTV Movie Awards

13 April 2014 9:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Admit it: you felt something when Zac Efron took his shirt off at the MTV Movie Awards. I don't care if you're a straight male. I don't care if you think Zac Efron is too orange. Those pecs moved you, deep down inside, and you're lying to yourself if you say otherwise. Also, who needs books? I learned all I need to know about life from Zac Efron's super-hot body. Here are six of the most important lessons imparted during this most historic moment: 1. God loves me I wasn't sure before, but now I know it incontrovertibly: God loves me, God has always loved me, God is good, God is great, because God created Rita Ora and especially because God created Zac Efron. All hail God. 2. My body is a hideous monstrosity I actually didn't think my body was that bad before I saw this, but now I know »

When Movie Stars Act Weird

10 April 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

As problems go, it’s a pretty First World one to be saddled with. You’re a movie star pocketing obscene paychecks to appear in Hollywood blockbusters. But something is missing.

Worry not. There’s a well-trod path laid out that will put this plight behind you once and for all: You will make a boldly uncommercial art film. The weirder, »

Zac Efron Is Barely Legal In John Grisham Thriller The Associate

2 April 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a generation raised on High School Musical and its multifaceted sequels, it might be difficult to view Zac Efron as anything other than that sunny-smiled high school student who sang and danced his way through secondary education. But he’s been trying to be taken seriously as a dramatic actor for several years now, appearing in films like The Lucky OneThat Awkward Moment and The Paperboy in an attempt to shed at least some of that pristine Disney image. Now, he’s signed up appear in John Grisham thriller The Associate, following in the footsteps of Tom Cruise and Matt Damon before him.

The Associate has been in the pipeline since 2008, with Shia Labeouf set to star and Tony Scott in line to direct. It then moved on to director Adrian Lyne, but is now back with a new screenwriter before being shopped to new studios. With a star like Efron attached, »

Zac Efron To Star In John Grisham Thriller 'The Associate'

2 April 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Zac Efron isn't going to let fights with transients in L.A.'s Skid Row stop him from movin' on up. The actor has been eager to prove his dramatic chops with a string of recent films including "The Lucky One," "The Paperboy," "At Any Price" and "Parkland." Now he's hoping to follow folks like Tom Cruise and Matt Damon, and put a John Grisham thriller on his bookshelf. The actor has signed up to star in and produce the long-developing "The Associate." Back in 2008, the project was over at Paramount with Shia Labeouf attached to star and Tony Scott at one time linked to direct. Then a couple of years back the project surfaced again, this time with Adrian Lyne behind the camera. But it's back the drawing board again, with a new writer being brought it to pen script before this one is shopped to studios so this could take a while. »

Tyler Perrython: 15 Tyler Perry Productions Watched, Graded + Ranked

14 March 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

View Photo Gallery

Ahead of the release of The Single Moms Club, a film written, directed, produced by and starring Tyler Perry, we thought it was worthwhile looking back on all the Tyler Perry Productions (Tpp) that came before it. In total, Perry has produced 16 films (including Smc) from the ongoing Madea franchise to stand-alones, such as Temptation and Why Did I Get Married? All of the films have been met with varying degrees of praise and success. But who has actually sat down and watched all of them? Inspired by that question, I decided to review all of Perry’s film in order to grade and rank each film.

To see how they fall in order (from worst to best), flip through the gallery above. For a more in-depth, critical analysis keep on reading!

Zac Efron wants more High School Musical movies

11 March 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

High School Musical star says reunion movie is a possibility: 'we're all thinking about it'

Zac Efron would be keen on a High School Musical reunion, despite having forged a career in rather more grown up fare in recent years, the actor has said.

Speaking to E! Online at the SXSW festival, Efron said he met up regularly with other alumni of the teen-friendly film trilogy, which began with two feature-length Disney Channel TV movies in 2006 and 2007 before eventually transferring to the big screen with 2008's High School Musical 3: Senior Year.

"We're all thinking about it," said Efron, who is promoting the comedy Neighbors at SXSW. "I continue to see all the guys from High School. Every time we do … there's just this look between us. It's so cool because we never forget a single moment of that experience."

Efron has starred in independent fare such as 2009's Me and Orson Welles »

5 Things We Learned From 'True Detective'

10 March 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

1. The McConnaissance has officially hit its peak.

It's now belaboring the obvious to state that Matthew McConaughey has morphed into one of the most interesting actors working today — an unpredictable phenomenon that we can carbon-date back to 2011 and his Rockford Files-esque turn in The Lincoln Lawyer. His career-resurgence modus operandi was simple: kiss off the typical leading-man roles that were slowly suffocating him and go moody (Mud), dowdy (Bernie), psycho-ugly (Killer Joe), or campy, where-are-my-bongos batshit-crazy (The Paperboy). Where once his two modes were open-shirted or altogether shirtless, McConaughey started »

The Butler didn't do it for Oscar voters, but there are sharper ideas in some of last year's under-the-radar thrillers

If a film seemingly made for the express purpose of piling up Oscar nominations then receives precisely none, does it make a sound? Well, yes and no. Lee Daniels' The Butler (Entertainment, 12) was a surprise summer hit in the Us, where audiences weary of monsters fighting robots were apparently up for a windy dose of all-star, semi-fictionalised civil rights history, but that doesn't mean it has anything to say.

Awards voters, oddly, couldn't see the hokey Forrest Gump parallels in Forest Whitaker's Cecil Gaines, humble White House butler to every president from Eisenhower to Reagan. A noble cypher who stoically pours tea while history is made around him, he's a less-than-riveting presence around whom to centre the narrative; there's more going on back home, where his radical Black Panther »

11 Unintentionally Awkward Movie Moments

28 February 2014 6:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

There are plenty of awkward moments in film, especially in comedy. That makes sense because awkwardness, when intentional, is just pretty funny. Think of Ted getting his penis stuck in his zipper in There’s Something About Mary, the moments in American Pie when Jim’s father wants to talk about sex, or hell, most of the scenes in Meet The Parents. The recent comedy That Awkward Moment is even dedicated to the awkwardness of dating, even if it isn’t very good.

Not only comedy seems to be fond of awkwardness. It’s everywhere. An example many people would like to erase from their memory – Nicole Kidman masturbating in front of John Cusack in The Paperboy. Painfully awkward, but effective. People really dig awkwardness.

A scene can also be awkward while the director’s intention was to make it moving, sad, or shocking. Sometimes it’s awkward »

John Cusack wants the lead in the adaptation of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep

19 February 2014 9:17 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

John Cusack has not exactly been the A-list star he used to be. His last big studio film was the lackluster The Raven. He has steadily appeared in a lot of movies in supporting roles including The Paperboy and Grand Piano, but nothing quite on par with his career resurgence in the late 1990s. But, Cusack did find moderate success in the Stephen King hotel horror movie 1408 and is currently set to star alongside Samuel L. Jackson in another King adaptation, Cell. But, there is another »

Matthew McConaughey on ‘Dallas Buyers Club’: ‘Damn Right This Is a Great Time in My Career’

18 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may not be to most actors’ tastes, but Matthew McConaughey is sounding oddly happy about his smaller paydays.

“For the first time in my career, I lost money! No joke!” the actor says.

Then again, McConaughey has reason to smile; his choice to reject big mainstream movies, ultimately in favor of gritty roles in independent films, represents a dramatic career shift –— and has garnered widespread recognition — for the 44-year-old Texas-born father of three.

His performance in “Dallas Buyers Club,” as the real-life Ron Woodroof, a homophobic good ol’ boy who became a health crusader after being diagnosed with AIDS, smuggling life-saving drugs into the U.S. for himself and fellow patients, has earned him top honors at the Golden Globes and SAG awards, and brought him his first Oscar nomination.

It is one of several complicated characters that McConaughey has boldly portrayed recently — from the hard-edged drifter in “Mud »

Thomas Jane And John Cusack Are Ridiculous In Drive Hard Trailer

14 February 2014 11:14 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What the hell has happened to John Cusack? Remember the glory days of Say Anything, Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity and Being John Malkovich? Now he is giving us nonsense like The Raven, The Paperboy and this, Drive Hard. Above is the first trailer for Drive Hard, a crime thriller fronted by Cusack and Thomas Jane, that somehow stayed completely off our radar until now. It's a buddy comedy that follows the wild ride of a mysterious thief (Cusack) who kidnaps a race car driver turned driver's ed instructor (Jane), so he can be a reluctant getaway driver. Along the way, this odd couple will cross paths and piss off cops and gangsters. Damien Garcey, Christopher Morris, and Zoe Walker co-star. The Playlist has unearthed a couple of stills from the film, which you can see below. The first one has Cusack double-fisting a pair of guns, and in a »

Matthew McConaughey: from prince of the romcom to Oscar contender

8 February 2014 12:58 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor known for swashbuckling, wisecracking roles has muscled in on Hollywood's top table with role in Dallas Buyers Club

With the Academy Awards taking place on 2 March, a once almost unthinkable name has edged to the front of the best actor pack: Matthew McConaughey, once the bronzed clown prince of the romcom. His film Dallas Buyers Club, which hits British cinemas this weekend, has already won him top prizes at the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild awards. The Oscar narrative, for what it's worth, has his name pencilled in.

He plays Ron Woodroof, a roguish character with Aids who starts importing drug treatments, and generated many faux-concerned tabloid headlines for his gaunt appearance. His performance is far more than mere body shock, however.

"It's such a compelling, grand performance, that it bursts out of the seams of the film," says Danny Leigh, of the BBC's Film 2014. "It's »

Bad Movies and Oscars: How Do they Get Nominated?

6 February 2014 11:25 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Terence Johnson

Magaging Editor

Trying to figure out the Academy’s reasoning for why they pick certain performances, tech aspects and films to honor is to court chaos. Just when you think a film like Saving Mr. Banks or Lee DanielsThe Butler has a good shot at making the field, The Lone Ranger gets more nominations than both of those films combined.

The aforementioned scenario isn’t uncommon over the history of the Oscar as many films that have buzz are replaced by the next buzzy title and forgotten or just not even considered at the Oscars. This is what makes it all the more interesting when a badly reviewed movie manages to pick up a nomination. There are several films in contention this year, from Jackass presents Bad Grandpa to Pacific Rim.

Determining what’s a bad movie/performance/tech is an incredibly subjective process that varies from voter to voter. »

Efron's Latest to Surpass Production Budget on Opening Weekend? Now, the Bad News...

2 February 2014 1:33 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Zac Efron movies: ‘That Awkward Moment’ box office disappoints on Super Bowl weekend - though grosses may surpass budget Zac Efron can be seen this weekend, January 31-February 2, 2014, in That Awkward Moment, a romantic comedy directed by Tom Gormican, and co-starring Miles Teller (the star of Sundance 2014 double winner Whiplash), Michael B. Jordan (the star of Sundance 2013 double winner Fruitvale Station), and Imogen Poots. (Photo: Zac Efron in That Awkward Moment.) Released by Focus Features at 2,809 North American locations as a sort of "counter-programming" to the Super Bowl, That Awkward Moment had a disappointing debut on Friday, collecting an estimated $2.94 million, according to estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Chances are things aren’t going to get all that much better on Saturday before the film plummets — like just about every other movie out there — on Super Bowl Sunday. ‘That Awkward Moment’ box office: Good news and bad news Now, »
