Ten Gifs That Explain Birthday Boy James Franco

18 April 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Possibly the most, let’s say, enigmatic actor of his generation, James Franco has been on our radar ever since his turn on the beloved but short-lived Freaks and Geeks.

On the notoriety of that role, he nabbed the title role in the TV movie James Dean (which earned him a multitude of honors, including an Emmy nomination).

To prove his versatility, he moved on to the big budget special effects of the Spider-Man movies, a crucial role in Milk, and an Oscar nod in 127 Hours.

Heading back to TV, he surprised everyone by taking a batshit role on General Hospital, and a multi-episode arc on Nick at Nite’s Hollywood Heights

Ever the mystery, his sexual ambiguity has been labeled both provocative … and aggravating, and he continues to confound, with such projects as Interior.Leather.Bar alongside such family fare as Oz The Great And Powerful

As this weekend is his 36th birthday, »

‘Heaven Is for Real’ Joins Parade of Faith-Based Movies at Easter Box Office

15 April 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

2014 MTV Movie Awards predictions: Is this the year for 'Hunger Games?'

11 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section. Best Kiss Ashley Benson, James Franco & Vanessa Hudgens, "Spring Breakers" Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Scarlett Johansson, »

Joey King Joins Lifetime’s ‘Outlaw Prophet’; Steven Cree In Starz’s ‘Outlander

10 April 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Joey King (The Conjuring, Oz The Great And Powerful) has been cast in Lifetime’s original movie Outlaw Prophet from Sony Pictures Television. It focuses on the true story of Warren Jeffs, the leader of a Fundamentalist Mormon polygamist sect who spent more than a year on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List, eluded authorities and was ultimately caught by a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper. Based on Stephen Singular’s book When Men Become Gods, the movie chronicles Jeffs’ rise to power after the death of his father, Rulon Jeffs (Martin Landau). King will play Elissa Wall, the battered young woman who brings Jeffs (Tony Goldwyn) to justice. King, repped by Dan Spilo at Industry Entertainment and Meredith Fine at Coast to Coast Talent Group, will next be seen in FX’s Fargo and Zach Braff’s indie Wish I Was Here. Scottish actor Steven Cree (Brave) has joined the »

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. Fame and box office success alone aren’t why you started making movies. You are an actor If only your fans could see just how cool and fearless and devoted to the craft you really are. What to do? 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, »

Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here - Deceptively Good Teaser Trailer

9 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I don’t think Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here made the splash at this year’s Sundance that he, or the many that crowdfunded the film, would have liked. It received negative reviews from most critics, including myself, who felt that it tread much of the same water as 2004’s Garden State, while failing to live up to his acclaimed directorial debut. In Braff's sophomore effort, he stars as an out-of-work actor who takes on the responsibility of homeschooling his son and daughter when his ailing father can no longer pay their tuition.

This teaser trailer is mostly quick shots of the film’s beautiful cinematography cut to The Shins’ stirring single “Simple Song.” I’ve ranted about how deceptive trailers can be, and having seen the film, I can say this trailer (thanks mostly to the music) makes the movie look better than it was. It felt »

Watch: 10-Minute Supercut Of The Most Influential VFX Movies

9 April 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The latest in Vimeo's ever-growing stock of intriguing supercuts is this, from user Roger Serrabassa, which takes a giddy, ten-minute race through some of the most influential and groundbreaking special effects-led movies ever made. Have fun trying to identify everything among the myriad explosions, animal appearances and occasional questionable choices—is “Oz the Great and Powerful” really a defining VFX movie?The supercut is also heavy on recent releases, which makes sense given how quickly our standards for VFX change—but for an interesting contrast check out the supercut of Oscar-winning special effects we ran a little while ago, which gives some sense of the history of the craft, but lacks the Bill Nighy tentacle-face goodness to be found in this one. You can't have it all. And one other stop you might want to make is on our feature of 7 Pre-Bullet Time VFX Effects That Blew Our Minds. Watch below. »

Which 2014 Movies Could Reach $1 Billion? (cont.)

8 April 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Which 2014 Movies Could Reach $1 Billion?"OriginalsGodzilla (May)Big-budget disaster movies tend to draw huge crowds, and Godzilla is a brand that resonates with global audiences. Back in 1998, Roland Emmerich's Godzilla earned $379 million worldwide; with the expanded foreign market and drastically higher ticket prices, it's hard to imagine this new movie earning a penny less than $500 million. Still, even if it does twice as much business as last Summer's Pacific Rim, it would still be well short of $1 billion. Odds: 15%Maleficent (May)Back in 2010, Alice in Wonderland became one of the rare "original" movies to earn over $1 billion worldwide. Remodeling iconic fantasies in big-budget live-action form has since become a major part of Disney's strategy. Unfortunately, Oz The Great and Powerful earned less than half as much as Alice in Wonderland, suggesting that movie's success was an anomaly. Featuring the Sleeping Beauty villain as the protagonist, Maleficent is an even tougher sell. »
