He said the only gambling advice he received before going to Sin City was “Always bet on Blart” — a suggestion he dubbed “impractical.”
That wasn’t the only reference to the tagline from the critically derided (but commercially successful) “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.”
It was edgy humor given that the exhibition community gathered at the Caesars Palace Colosseum is more interested in putting butts in seats than it is in screening films that are candidates for the Criterion Collection. However, it’s in keeping with the three hard R-rated comedies that Universal Pictures teased — “Ted 2, »

Stx Entertainment and Im Global’s financial partnership for civil war drama Free State of Jones is beginning to bear fruit, as the studios have unveiled a pair of new stills for Gary Ross’ feature that showcase Interstellar star Matthew McConaughey in action.
For the film, he’ll assume the role of Newton Knight, a confederate soldier who spearheads one of the largest, and most significant rebellions in the bloody history of the four-year battle. Opposite McConaughey for the film is Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), a slave named Rachel who wins the heart of the iconic protagonist, paving the way for one of the first mixed-race marriages in the state. Rachel’s relationship with Newton has been documented as one of the defining periods of his life, and it’ll be fascinating to see that play out on the big screen under Ross’ astute eye. »

Long gestating in the bowels of Hollywood, a Flash Gordon reboot is finally moving forward at 20th Century Fox. X-Men: First Class and Kingsman: The Secret Service director Matthew Vaughn is in talks to take the helm on this sci-fi adventure. John Davis and George Nolfi will produce the movie, which is based on Alex Raymond's iconic comic stipe hero.
20th Century Fox picked up the rights to Flash Gordon nearly a year ago, with King Features producing. John Davis spent more than a year trying to wrangle the rights from the Hearst Corporation after other attempts to rejuvenate the character on the big screen failed. Flash Gordon was created in 1934. The main story follows a football player who, along with the lovely Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, accidentally winds up on the planet Mongo, where they must fight off its merciless leader Ming.

To most contemporary audiences, "Flash Gordon" is probably most recently remembered for one of two things: the 1980 movie being endlessly referenced in Seth MacFarlane's "Ted," or as a short-lived TV series on The Sci-Fi Channel in 2007, which lasted one season. Well, last year, Fox announced they were bringing the character back to the big screen, and indeed, the wheels are in motion. THR reports that Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First Class," "Kingsman: The Secret Service") is in negotiations to direct the new film. George Nolfi ("The Adjustment Bureau") penned the treatment, with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay ("Star Trek 3") writing the script for the sci-fi galactic tale. One can't help but wonder if Fox saw the mega-success of "Guardians Of The Galaxy" and got more confident that they could make a new version work much better than the super campy 1980 effort.

Everybody's favorite foul mouthed teddy bear is back on the big screen this Summer with Ted 2, and a short, but pretty funny, clip has come our way with Ted and his human co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Mark Wahlberg preparing for an important court case. The original movie worked best when Wahlberg and writer, director, and voice of Ted, Seth McFarlane, played off each other, and judging by the quick fire banter in this clip, nothing much has changed for the sequel. Released: June 26th (U.S.)/ July 10th (Irl/U.K.) »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

We just haven't seen enough from Ted 2 yet! And it's only a few months away from hitting theater screens across the country this summer. But that all changes courtesy of the MTV Movie Awards, which has just debuted the first clip from the anticipated sequel. We also get to see Mark Wahlberg introducing this sneak peek while at a mini-golf course, as he torments his MTV host with the ball, trying to stuff it in his mouth.
The clip itself features both Mark Wahlberg and Ted, voiced once again by writer and director Seth MacFarlane. It also introduces a new character played by incoming love interest Amanda Seyfried. John Bennett and Ted have sought out the help of a lawyer, and the duo quickly spiral into a riff-off on law terminology. While the clip itself is somewhat short, we do get a sense of what we can expect from »
Mark Wahlberg‘s John Bennett and his stuffed teddy bear Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) could totally be lawyers — or so the stoners say. In a clip from the upcoming semi-cgi comedy sequel, the two seek legal advice from Samantha Jackson (Amanda Seyfried), which they ruin and run with instead of absorbing. While trying to prep the fur ball for the witness stand, Jackson tests him: “Ted, do you consider yourself to be human?” In response, the duo just rattles off a bunch of generally attorney terminology, such as “objection,” “sidebar” and even just “briefcase.” The dialogue also included several attempts. »

Seth McFarlane's Ted certainly had no shortage of jokes, which is true of nearly everything that McFarlane has been involved with thus far, with the notable exception of Hellboy II: The Golden Army. That isn't to say all the jokes (or, hell, even most of them) worked. McFarlane is of the clown-car brand of comedy, stuffing and cramming as much pop culture knowledge, immature guffaws, and crass politics into each minute of screen time available to him. It's why most of the best material in Ted was gleaned in clips and the trailers before the film was even released. The same may be true of Ted 2, which recently took over MTV in anticipation of the MTV Movie Awards and debuted an exclusive clip from the upcoming comedy.

Seth MacFarlane.s Ted was a surprise hit in 2012, but made so much money that a sequel was in evitable. Ted 2 opens later this summer, and on the eve of the MTV Movie Awards, they.ve got hilarious new snippet to check out. The short clip starts at about the one-minute mark, and just a heads up, you.ll have to sit through a Mountain Dew commercial and some golf hijinks to get there. From the look of this clip, Ted 2 offers up a similar quick, smart ass style of humor as the first film. This footage shows Mark Wahlberg.s John Bennett and his best-friend-since-childhood, the anthropomorphic teddy bear, Ted (voice by MacFarlane), preparing for an upcoming legal case. As you can tell, they have an intimate grasp on the intricacies of the American legal system. Or at least they.ve got really stoned and watched a »

DC and Dynamite Comics takes us back in time with a reunion of two dynamic duos that many will say is long overdue. Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet sees the two pair of heroes and their sidekicks, Robin and Kato, joining forces to battle evil for a third time. Since all the actors from the television show have either aged far beyond being able to don their respectable costumes or passed on, it’s a dream pairing that could only be made possible in the pages of a comic book.
What could force Batman, the Green Hornet, Robin, and Kato to join forces again? How about the return of General Gumm and his sticky-fingered minions in Gotham City? This time the gooey crime lord has a cohort in villainy. The Joker has joined in on the dastardly depravity!

Fresh from news that a couple of film projects were in pre-production about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, it has been announced that Mark Wahlberg (Ted, The Gambler) is set to produce and possibly star in one of the versions.
Patriots’ Day is based on the first-hand account of Ed Davis, who Wahlberg could end up playing in the drama. Davis, a Boston Police commissioner, played a key role in the subsequent hunt for the two brothers who are held responsible for the attack, and are currently on trial in the Us.
CBS Films president Terry Press, who are behind this version of the project, said “There is nothing more compelling than a real story populated by real heroes,” and that the film will “give audiences a very personal look at what occurred during the days when the eyes of the world were on the city of Boston and how a »

Throughout the years, Hollywood has showcased symptoms of double vision, be it the by-now infamous case of Deep Impact and Armageddon, Antz and Pixar’s A Bugs Life on the animation front or, more recently, Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman. There are of course a number of variables that factor into these peculiar back-to-back releases; budget concerns, marketing tactics, and releasing a film during what is considered to be the most opportune window.
Fast forward to 2015 and we have another example of this phenomenon in the Boston marathon bombings, the tragedy that occurred back in 2013 that is set to inspire not one, but two feature films. First up, Boston Strong has already entered production, with star Casey Affleck boarding the project before parting ways with the movie. On the other hand, CBS Films has announced Patriot’s Day, and the studio is close to securing Boston native »

The Starz Original series Blunt Talk released a first look teaser of the 10-episode first season of the half-hour scripted comedy series from Mrc and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Ames (creator and showrunner), Stephanie Davis and Tristram Shapeero. The teaser will premiere on-air during the Black Sails finale on Saturday, March 28 at 9 Pm Et/Pt. Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. The series will premiere on Starz in the summer of 2015.
Through the platform of his nightly cable news show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt's only support »
Read More: Starz Orders Two Seasons of Jonathan Ames' First Show Since 'Bored to Death,' Co-Produced by Seth MacFarlane "Blunt Talk," a comedy created for Starz by Jonathan Ames ("Bored to Death") and executive produced by Seth McFarlane ("Family Guy," "Ted"), debuted another teaser trailer today. The show, which is the premium cable network's second half-hour comedy, was picked up last year for a two-season commitment of 20 episodes. Patrick Stewart headlines as Walter Blunt, a British television personality who moves to Los Angeles in order to start a talk show on American cable news, advising viewers on how to properly behave. Complicating matters is Blunt's off-screen decision-making, which doesn't quite live up to the standards of his own show. Stewart stars alongside Jacki Weaver, Dolly Wells and Timm Sharp. "Blunt Talk" premieres in Summer 2015. Read More: Watch: Patrick Stewart's New Starz »

Starz is about to hit what could be the next comedy to skyrocket, and they’ve finally released a teaser. Blunt Talk, starring Patrick Stewart, goes behind the scenes of Walter Blunt’s (Stewart) news show. He’s on a mission to tell Americans how they should live and think, but he isn’t exactly the role model he hopes to present.
