Last night saw the UK premiere of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continutes in London's Leicester Square. Flickering Myth's Oliver Davis wore two layers of socks, an undershirt, an overshirt, a coat, scarf and gloves to brave the 'Burgundy carpet's' sub-zero temperatures. He also had on a piece of female lingerie, but that was purely for comfort.
Besides a whole bunch of photos he took last night - including a man dressed as a lamp - Oliver also managed a brief conversation with the movie's producer, Judd Apatow (The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Funny People), about his upcoming project Train Wreck; chatted to ex-Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts about her favourite cast member; got Rufus Hound to perform his favourite quotes from the original Anchorman; and recorded a bit of Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell's pre-screening interviews.
Enjoy the poorly shot (operating an iPhone camera means no gloves) and amateurishly edited footage below. »

As the year winds down, we're taking a look back at the year in 2013 by way of the films that hit the big screen. We've already features some impressive retrospective videos like Cinefile 2013, Final Cut 2013 and The 2013 Movie Trailer Mash-Up. However, my favorite just might be our latest entry, Filmography 2013, from Gen Ip (formerly Genrocks). This editor has delivered retrospectives for 2010, 2011, and 2012, and this latest one is another fantastic piece of work looking at films like The Croods, Ender's Game, Rush, 42, To the Wonder, A.C.O.D., Thor: The Dark World, Riddick and much more. Watch it below! Here's the fantastic Filmography 2013 from Gen Ip's own YouTube page via SlashFilm: Again, this one still features a clip from The Monuments Men, but since the film was taken out of the running late in the year, we'll let it slide. After all, there are still hours of work and hundreds of films in here. »

It's a sequel almost a decade in the making - Anchorman 2: The Legend Continutes - and it's UK premiere is tonight from 6pm in London's Leicester Square.
Oliver Davis of the Channel 4 Flickering Myth news team will be in attendance on the red carpet, dressed in his sharpest, Tesco-bought suit. Keep refreshing this page for photos and live updates from the premiere, which will appear below...
17.09 - we're in the 'Online Cluster', which is a nice way of saying 'fenced in pen'. There's fancy dress galore. Here's the press pass:
17.22 - the giant old school television has been turned on. It's getting laughs despite no one being able to hear it.
17.27 - anchor people are reporting news from the Anchorman 2 premiere. It's like Inception.
17.45 - they're playing jazz flute in the cinema foyer. This is how an Anchorman 2 premiere should be done. Wonderful stuff.

The story follows Vermont teenager Jude, who moves in with his hippie dad in 1980s New York City after his best friend Teddy overdoses. There he falls in with the no drugs, no sex, no meat straight-edge hardcore punk scene of the East Village.
Steinfeld will play Eliza, who becomes pregnant with Teddy’s child and leans on his brother Johnny and Jude for support.

Last week, the Academy announced the longlist for their visual effects awards, from which five nominees will be picked. The list is made up of "Elysium," "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," "Iron Man 3," "The Lone Ranger," "Oblivion," "Pacific Rim," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "Thor" The Dark World" and "World War Z." Oh, and one more, which overshadows all of the others: "Gravity," which bar some immense shock is certain to take the prize. It's a solid front-runner in cinematography too bu does it have the rest of the technical awards—editing, sound design and sound mixing—sewn up in the same way? Let's look at Visual Effects first. Eyebrows were raised by some omissions from the longlist—while "47 Ronin," "Rush," "Oz The Great & Powerful" and "Ender's Game" were among those left off, the real surprise was "Man Of Steel," which many had figured as a potential nominee.

With so many blockbusters that hit theaters this year, it's hard to choose my Top 3 movies of 2013. After much consideration, I've taken my pick, but ultimately, every movie is geared towards its own audience and the different genres must be taken into thought. So, without further ado, here are my Top 3 Movies of the Year based on what I found was compelling, enjoyable, and supplied food for thought.
1. Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Director Francis Lawrence is brilliant. I applaud the entire cast and crew of Catching Fire for bringing the book alive on screen in ways that's perhaps even better than the book. The acting is exceptional and outstanding. Jennifer Lawrence immerses herself completely in the character of Katniss. The plot moves along in such an artistic, impeccable way that it's easy to forget that Hunger Games is a big franchise blockbuster. Catching Fire is a precious rarity in that it beats its predecessor. »

As usual, movies took inspiration from books this year, and not just the Ya stuff either (Ok, there was lots of Ya stuff, but it was good stuff!). American classic The Great Gatsby made it to the big screen, another Nicholas Sparks novel was adapted into another romantic tearjerker, and, of course, big-budget hits like Catching Fire and Ender's Game came to life. In your opinion, which is the best book-to-movie adaptation of the year? Vote on all of our best of 2013 polls here! »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has shortlisted 10 movies for VFX Oscar consideration for the 86th Academy Awards, led by Alfonso Cuaron's blockbuster "Gravity" and "The Desolation of Smaug," the second in Peter Jackson's popular "Hobbit" trilogy. Joining them are Guillermo del Toro's robot mash-up, "Pacific Rim," J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" sequel, "Into Darkness," and three dystopian adventures: "Elysium," "World War Z," and "Oblivion." There was also room for two Marvel superhero stalwarts: "Iron Man 3" and "Thor: The Dark World." The biggest surprise inclusion? "The Lone Ranger" flop that nonetheless featured two spectacular train fights. But left out of the running were Ron Howard's low-budget "Rush," which seamlessly integrated archival footage with riveting new racing action (not enough CG?); the under-performing "Ender's Game" (whose more conventional zero-gravity paled in comparison to "Gravity's" innovative approach); Zack Snyder's Supeman »

Do not adjust your sets. This actually happened.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) has already hosted the EMAs, appeared in the advertising campaign for the new Dodge Durango and released his fictional autobiography, and the movie still won't be out for another three weeks.
The latest installment in Anchorman 2: The Press Tour Continues saw Burgundy appear on a North Dakota news station at the weekend. Ferrell plays it remarkably straight, reading from the autocue (he reads those out exactly, don't you know) and keeping improvisation to a minimum. It's probably the most real-life representation of the character, especially with the comically mundane VTs to which they throw ('grow your hair' month, a new easy-luggage system and a rubbish truck that caught on fire).

Thanks to huge numbers from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Thor: The Dark World, November box office exceeded $1 billion for the second year in a row. Its $1.07 billion was a bit below last year's $1.09 billion record, though. Through the end of November, the 2013 domestic box office is neck-and-neck with 2012: year-to-date earnings are $9.87 billion, which is less than $10 million below 2012. With strong holdovers Catching Fire and Frozen and guaranteed blockbusters The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Anchorman: The Legend Continues, it's likely that 2013 comes awfully close to matching 2012's record $10.84 billion. The uncontested champion in November was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. After opening to $158.1 million (a new November record) it played well through the Thanksgiving holiday and ended the month with $282.1 million. If Catching Fire holds as well as the last few Twilight movies*not a difficult task for this well-reviewed, broadly-appealing flick*it will end up with over $400 million. »

Wilmer Valderama ('That '70s Show'), who recently joined the cast of the El Rey Network's new show 'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series', has taken to Twitter and posted a little behind the scenes tease from the production. No costumed cast or sneaky set images just yet however. This new pic simply reveals the series logo plastered on the side of a clapperboard. It also features the name of producer Robert Rodriguez in the director's chair who of course also helmed the original film which the series is based on. Robert Patrick ('Terminator 2: Judgment Day'), Madison Davenport ('Shameless'), Brandon Soo Hoo ('Ender's Game'), D.J. Cotrona ('G.I. Joe: Retaliation'), Zane Holtz ('Holes'), Don Johnson and Eiza Gonzalez ('Amores verdaderos') also star in the new 10 episode show. Check out the new image below. »

It's the end of November, and Peter Travers knows that turkeys on the Thanksgiving table means plenty of turkeys at the movies. So while you're recovering from your tryptophan coma and trying to figure out what film to see, our fearless critic has brought out his faithful Scum Bucket – and his fowl friend Gobbles! – to help you steer clear of November's worst movies.
See Which Movie Peter Travers Calls "Spectacular"
Fittingly, the worst-of-the-worst is Free Bird, a poorly animated kids movie about turkeys that Travers urges you to avoid at all costs. »
