Newswire: Werner Herzog’s film school primarily teaches you to break the rules

11 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Werner Herzog has a unique approach to filmmaking, one that he’s proven surprisingly willing to share. The Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans and Grizzly Man director recently teamed up with MasterClass to teach the methods to his madness, which apparently include extralegal activities. At least, that’s the part of his syllabus that Herzog shared with Conan O’Brien, who took all of the talk of forgery and the hoodwinking of military officials in stride.

Herzog was on Conan to talk up his latest film, Lo And Behold, Reveries Of The Interconnected World, which examines how the virtual world of the internet has shaped the tangible one. So the fatalistic director naturally discussed the lessons he imparts via T1 lines, including securing financing as well as opening doors, i.e., lock-picking. Herzog also promotes perseverance via forgery when the situation warrants it. Rules are just as meaningless »

How Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Mastered the Art of Pooping on Politics

25 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The 2016 election is an absolute circus, and there may be no one better at clowning the clowns than Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. With Triumph's Summer Election Special 2016 and last February's Primary Election Special, both airing on Hulu, the intrepid pup has been dragging his butt across the political carpet, from Iowa to New Hampshire, Philly's Democratic National Convention to Cleveland's Republican National Convention. The bipartisan badgerer has roasted Mike Huckabee, annoyed Ted Cruz and gone viral with videos toying with gullible Trump fans and sensitive college liberals alike — all »

Mila Kunis Shows Off Her Growing Belly While Running Errands in La

25 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Mila Kunis was spotted running errands in La on Wednesday afternoon. The Bad Moms actress, who is currently pregnant with her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher, covered up her growing belly in a printed dress and was seen giving directions to a person who was lost. Just last month, Mila appeared on Conan and revealed she and Ashton bought their wedding bands on Etsy for $100. Shortly after, she went on Australia's Kyle & Jackie O radio show and explained why she keeps her Tiffany engagement ring in a safety deposit box, saying, "I can't wear this because someone's going to chop my hand off for it."

John Krasinski Blames Thor for Why He Didn't Become Captain America

24 August 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Casting a big role - the kind they name movies after - is not an easy thing. A studio will go through hundreds and thousands of actors to find the perfect fit. The audition process goes on for months, until eventually a studio has a short list of final contenders. If you'll recall, John Krasinski was on such a shortlist for the role of Captain America. It even got so far as an on-set audition with the suit and everything. And then those months and months of hard work were undone by a chance encounter with Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. Krasinski told the funny story recently on Conan. Watch it in full below, but it basically boils down to this: Chris Hemsworth makes everyone feel inadequate, even John Krasinski. Krasinski doesn't explicitly say if he walked away...

‘Better Call Saul’ Star Bob Odenkirk Publishing Memoir

24 August 2016 1:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk will publish his first book of personal essays through Random House, which has acquired North American rights to the untitled memoir, it was announced Wednesday.

The book is described as a comic exploration of the actor’s life and career, from early days discovering his love for sketch and improv, to working at Chicago’s Second City, to writing and acting on “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Mr. Show,” “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.”

According to Odenkirk, the book will be, “A comic ‘bildungsroman,’ if you will – defined by Webster’s Dictionary as ‘a novel about the moral and psychological growth of the main character,’ – except, this will be more memoir and the main character, Bob Odenkirk (actor, writer, comedian, gadabout), doesn’t grow morally or psychologically.”

How Chris Hemsworth Ruined John Krasinski's Dreams Of Playing Captain America

24 August 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has already been around so long that it's hard to believe there was a time when Robert Downey Jr. wasn't necessarily deemed the best fit for Tony Stark -- or when Chris Evans was known as The Human Torch from Fantastic Four rather than Captain America himself.

Of course, we all know this as fact: studios hold auditions for some of their biggest roles, and names that we hear hovering around certain roles are sometimes a bit odd. Back during the casting of Cap, I remember hearing that John Krasinski was in the running. Nowadays, Krasinski has started to make a bigger name for himself. He's already directed two films (including the recent Hollars), and has even shown his worth as a bit of a badass in the Michael Bay flick 13 Hours. He's even locked down the role of Jack Ryan in the upcoming TV series from Amazon and Paramount. »

John Krasinski Met Matt Damon in Pretty Much the Most Awkward Way Possible

24 August 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have a beautiful relationship, filled with sweet photo ops, cute stories about their children, and one truly cringe-worthy story about Matt Damon. While sitting down with Conan O'Brien on Tuesday night, the Devil Wears Prada-loving actor regaled Conan with a story about the first time he ever met Matt while on the set of The Adjustment Bureau, which costars Emily. "I get up there [to the set] . . . and I go this close to the screen, and it's just Matt and my wife kissing very deeply," John laughed while describing seeing one of his acting idols in person for the first time. "Then Matt Damon came up, and he was just trying to make a joke, but instead he said, 'Hey, nice to meet you. I was just totally tonguing your girl.'" See how the awkward situation sorted itself out above! »

John Krasinski: Chris Hemsworth ended my superhero dreams

24 August 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chris Hemsworth doesn’t know his own powers. The man who was perfectly cast to play Thor is so strong, he can defeat Captain America with simple politeness, or at least this is how John Krasinski recalled his Captain America screen test. During an interview on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show, Krasinski explained exactly what happened during his audition. He was about halfway through putting on the Captain America suit when things for the self-professed superhero fan went south in a hurry. “[I was] feeling pretty good about myself…All of a sudden, Chris Hemsworth walked by as Thor, and he’s like, ‘Hey mate.’ And I went, ‘I’m good, this is stupid. It’s ok, I’m not Captain America,’” Krasinski said. Krasinski didn’t let this experience deter him from fighting evildoers, not by a long shot. In fact, he’s starring in the new Jack »

How James Corden Conquered Late Night One 'Carpool Karaoke' at a Time

24 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Matt Damon is running toward the rooftop railing of an L.A. building, and people are afraid he's gonna die. James Corden is not one of them. Damon is reprising Jason Bourne, walking fast and looking over the right shoulder of his scuffed brown leather jacket. He then runs into a plump Brit who's dressed exactly the same. Damon smiles. It's Corden, the host of CBS' The Late Late Show, and the proud son of Hazlemere, Buckinghamshire, in England's unfashionable Home Counties. It's an hour before the taping of Corden's show, »

Godzilla animated movie in the works, first concept art emerges

21 August 2016 11:04 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 22, 2016

Japan's most famous kaiju is to get an animated feature film, as Toho announces the "big-scale" Godzilla...

Godzilla may have passed his 60th birthday, but the city-levelling creature still holds as much fascination as he ever did. Gareth Edwards' Us Godzilla film marked the kaiju's anniversary back in 2014, while this year's Shin Godzilla was a huge hit in Japan in June. The Japanese studio that created Godzilla (or Gojira, as he's known in the far east) isn't stopping with that hit, either.

According to Variety, Toho is in the process of making an animated movie, simply called Godzilla, which it describes as a "big-scale" feature film - a contrast from the fondly-remembered but goofy TV series co-created by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s. Animation will be handled by Tokyo's Polygon Pictures, the studio behind such things as Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence and Transformers Prime. As such, »

Screenwriter Will Beall gives updates on Aquaman and The Legend of Conan

19 August 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an appearance at the Television Critics Association press tour, Slash Film caught up with screenwriter Will Beall, who offered an update on two of the projects he’s working on at present in Warner Bros.’ DC superhero movie Aquaman and the Conan the Barbarian sequel The Legend of Conan.

““I can tell you that not all of the action takes place underwater, some of the most fun action in the movie actually takes place on dry land,” said Beall with regards to Aquaman. “I am still working on it with James Wan and Geoff Johns.”

Beall was then asked if filming on Justice League was preventing the script from being completed, replying that: “No, no, they know what’s happening. Everybody knows what’s happening so it’s not that. It’s working out what’s going to make the best movie.”

Beall also revealed that the opening scene »

Emmys: Is There Too Much Variety in the Variety Talk Category?

On Emmy nominations morning, many were shocked to learn that Crackle's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee — the Jerry Seinfeld web series shot with three GoPro cameras and this season comprising six episodes, each ranging from 16 to 23 minutes — was nominated for best variety talk series over several late-night stars: CBS' The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, NBC's Late Night With Seth Meyers, TBS' Full Frontal With Samantha Bee and Conan, and Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Trevor Noah and The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore (which was canceled Aug. 14).

Legend of Conan Writer Reveals Opening Scene

16 August 2016 7:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in October 2012, it was confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger will return for The Legend of Conan. At that time, it was just after the iconic actor left office as California's governor, as he prepared to return to the big screen. Over the last four years, there has certainly been some progress, with a report from last spring claiming that production would start in the fall of 2015. While that hasn't happened yet, there is still a script in play, and one of the writers just revealed the opening scene.

Will Beall (Gangster Squad) co-wrote the script with Chris Morgan, who wrote the last five Fast & Furious movies and is also shepherding the Universal Monsters franchise as well. /Film caught up with Will Beall at the TCA summer tour, where he confirmed that this new movie will begin where the original Conan the Barbarian left off with King Conan sitting on his throne, »

'Triumph's Summer Election Special 2016': TV Review

12 August 2016 5:43 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Birthed on Late Night with Conan O'Brien as a nuisance for celebrities and civilians and pageant canines alike, Robert Smigel's Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog has seen an interesting evolution into a sitcom star on Adult Swim's The Jack and Triumph Show and, in this election season in which reporting from a cigar chomping, heavily accented Yugoslavian Mountain Hound puppet barely even registers on the scale of absurdity, Triumph has become something of a truth-telling provocateur. February's Triumph's Election Special 2016, Smigel's first Funny or Die affiliated special for Hulu, thrust Triumph into the realm of important punditry alongside

The Crow Remake Wants Jason Momoa as Eric Draven

10 August 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Conan and Aquaman may not be the only two iconic comic book characters that are inhabited by former Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa. The Justice League actor is reportedly wanted as the lead in the long-gestating, often-delayed remake of The Crow. Relativity is still behind this impending thriller, with The Hallow director Corin Hardy still attached to helm the stalled project.

This new version of The Crow is said to be a much more accurate adaptation of the beloved graphic novel by James O'Barr. The comic was originally brought to the big screen in 1994 by director Alex Proyas, with Brandon Lee in the lead. As many fans know, an on-set accident took the life of Lee, son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Over the years, there have been a number of low-budget sequels, but none of them have ever really connected with fans.

Sherlock: an on-screen history of series 4's Culverton Smith

7 August 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kayti Burt Aug 8, 2016

From silent film to the BBC's Sherlock, we're perusing the many on-screen incarnations of the villainous Culverton Smith...

Contains potential spoilers for Sherlock series 4 (well, in the sense that it talks about the hundred-year-old story that inspired one of its characters).

In series 4 of the BBC drama, we're told Culverton Smith is to be Sherlock's "darkest villain yet". Introduced in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Dying Detective" and continuing in various film and TV adaptations over the years, the character has already had a long screen career.

In preparation for the forthcoming season of Sherlock (because what else are we supposed to do with this interminable hiatus?), we're taking a look at Culverton Smith's on-screen history through the ages. We've got your silent films. We've got your fan films. We've got your Jeremy Brett. Pick your poison — or should I say infectious disease...

First, an introduction. »
