5 wildest movie house parties: Animal House, Old School, more

2 May 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

To mark the upcoming release of Bad Neighbours, we've decided to compile what we think are the wildest movie house parties of all time. Zac Efron and his frat buddies would be hard-pressed to beat some of these, although there's no doubt they'd down some booze and give it a good go.

Take a look at Digital Spy's cream of the crop below...

Animal House (1978)

This is where it all started, the house party to end (or inspire) all house parties. The toga party that featured in the 1978 classic Animal House has been recreated numerous times in both film and real life, proving just how awesome this bash really was. With an amazing performance of 'Shout' by Otis Day and the Knights and plenty of John Belushi, how could this not have made the list?

Weird Science (1985)

It's a Saturday night and you've got no plans. Oh, except the dream »

Bad Neighbours review: Seth Rogen and Zac Efron gross but great

2 May 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Bad Neighbours pits family man Seth Rogen against a fraternity lead by Zac Efron's handsome dummy. It's Project X crashing a Joe Swanberg movie

Seth Rogen's being a grown-up again. Fear not, those who remember Ro-Bro's crying scene in Take This Waltz this time the relationship stuff is played way down in the dirt. Neighbors writer-director Nicholas Stoller's smart, disgusting gutter-dweller has little time for the intricacies of long-term love and commitment. Instead it crashes Project X into a Joe Swanberg movie, invites it to chug the drinks and throw up all over the rug.

1 May 2014 9:47 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Deadline reports that Connie Britton is taking over Sharon Stone's role in the action-comedy American Ultra, directed by Project X's Nima Nourizadeh. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as a hapless stoner with a small-town girlfriend (Kristen Stewart) and a big secret: He is actually a lethal sleeper agent in a government program. Britton will play Victoria Lassetter, the founder of that program who tracks him down and pulls him back into the fray. Great choice. We would definitely trust Connie Britton to mentor us in a a covert government operation. And, you know, in life. »

‘Project X’ Star Oliver Cooper on ‘Californication’ Role: I Beat a Bunch of Fat Kids Who Looked Just Like Me

21 April 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Since his scene-stealing performance in the found-footage teen comedy “Project X,” Oliver Cooper has shared the screen with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake in “Runner Runner” and starred in “Four Dogs,” an indie movie he co-wrote and produced. Cooper made such an impression on “Project X” producer Todd Phillips that the director gave him a small part in “The Hangover Part III.” He most recently wrapped Joe Dante's horror comedy “Burying the Ex.” Cooper's comedic chops landed him an unlikely role as the son of David Duchovny and Heather Graham's characters on the final season of Showtime's “Californication. »

X-men: Days Of Future Past - 3 New Featurettes and Poster

17 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Les Toiles Héroïques

Fox continues to roll out new promo featurettes for X-Men: Days of Future Past. We've got three new ones today that have been called "Join the team," "We're in this together," and "Time to make a choice." They contain some more new footage from the film along with interviews with the cast and crew discussing the story and the characters. I've also included a French poster for the movie. I know it may seem like overkill on the marketing, but I'm one of those people that enjoys watching all the stuff the studio wants to throw at me. I guess I'm in the right business. The movie hits theaters on May 23rd.

Sharon Stone Joins ‘American Ultra’

16 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hollywood heavyweight Sharon Stone has joined the cast of action comedy American Ultra.

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.

With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.

American Ultra is already in production. It currently has »

Sharon Stone Heads For American Ultra

15 April 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Sometimes when casting rumours emerge, everything works out: deals are struck, hands shook and ink hits paper. Other times, such as with recent indications that Uma Thurman would join action comedy American Ultra, events simply don’t go that way. So now we have Sharon Stone taking on the role instead.American Ultra, which will find Project X's Nima Nourizadeh directing a Max Landis script, follows what happens when a small-town stoner called Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) discovers that he’s not quite the man he thinks he is. Happily living an unmotivated life with his girlfriend Phoebe, Mike suddenly learns that he’s not simply a joint-happy slacker; he is, in fact, a highly trained, sharp-shooting, fist-flinging sleeper.Of course, upon learning that he’s essentially Bourne with a bong, Mike’s life is instantly in danger and he’s forced to summon all his sublimated skills to survive. »

Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman And Tony Hale Join American Ultra

15 April 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I think that there’s a rule in Hollywood that movies that start with the word “American” must have amazing ensemble casts (see: American Hustle, American Beauty, American Pie, American Gangster, American Graffiti). This week, the action-comedy American Ultra adds three new members to an already bustling line-up: Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman and Arrested Development‘s Tony Hale. They join Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Justified‘s Walton Goggins, Topher Grace and John Leguizamo in a film for Project X director Nima Nourizadeh.

The low-budget Lionsgate movie, picked up for a cool $7 million in March, stars Eisenberg as Mike, a stoner and slacker living in a small town whose past as a highly-trained secret agent comes back to interfere with his new, quieter existence. He becomes the target of a top secret government operation, which naturally does not sit well with his girlfriend, Phoebe (played by Eisenberg’s Adventureland co-star, Stewart »
