Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey will go head-to-head in the animated feature Boss Baby, from DreamWorks. The two will voice the movie, with Baldwin playing the boss baby and Spacey taking on the role of his nemesis, Francis E. Francis.
The movie was inspired by Marla Frazee's award-winning picture book of the same name. Directed by Tom McGrath (Madagascar franchise, Megamind), Boss Baby is tells the story of the bossiest member in every family – the new guy. Here's an official synopses:
"From the day his baby brother arrived (in a cab…wearing a suit), seven-year-old Tim knew this fast-talking briefcase-carrying baby (voiced by Baldwin) was trouble – after all, there's only so much love to go around, right? But as Tim embarks on a mission to win back the sole affection of his parents, he stumbles upon a secret plot by the CEO of Puppy Co. (voiced by Spacey) that threatens »

You might know Jake McDorman as Evan Chambers from Greek and Analeigh Tipton as the babysitter from Crazy, Stupid, Love - yes, the one who broke out on America's Next Top Model - but they're going to try to win your hearts in ABC's new comedy, Manhattan Love Story. The show premieres this week, and if you haven't seen the show's trailer yet, it's a typical boy-meets-girl tale, but there's a twist: you can hear their thoughts. So as they're spouting pleasantries on screen, you know they're secretly judging each other, super hard. Bonus: the stars are dating in real life, too! I caught up with the stars over the Summer and chatted about their concerns for the new series, as well as the shows they can't live without. Popsugar: The thoughts-as-voice-overs format of the show is really new for primetime; is that something that attracted you to the script? »
David Fincher is no stranger to television, as he successfully shepherded Netflix's political drama "House of Cards" to prominence early last year, spawning the widespread cultural acceptance of binge-watching and in turn picking up an Emmy for his directorial efforts on the series' premiere episode. However, while he stepped out of the director's chair after that show's first two episodes, Fincher intends to remain at the helm a little bit longer when his new HBO series "Utopia" starts production. As he tells The Guardian, he plans to direct the entire first season -- and then it's anyone's guess what his involvement will be after that, though I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him stick around and produce future seasons, much as he did with "House of Cards." Gillian Flynn, who scripted Fincher's upcoming film Gone Girl based on her own novel, will pen the scripts for season »

Dito Montiel’s next project, dystopian thriller Man Down, has acquired another two names to its burgeoning cast list. First off, A Good Day To Die Hard star Jai Courtney has joined the pic. Deadline has the news. Quietly dropping Toby Kebbell’s name into the mix, they also offered a slightly better grasp of the plot. We knew previously that the movie would revolve around a returning veteran, and now we know that vet will be a man.
“[Man Down tells]… the story of Gabriel Drummer, a haunted Afghanistan war veteran who attempts to come to terms with his past while searching for his family in a post-apocalyptic America. “
Courtney’s supporting role will be as Gabriel’s best friend, Devin, who served alongside him in the war. Earlier this month the project made headway when Shia “I’m retiring from acting” LeBeouf, Kate Mara (Fantastic Four, TV’s House Of Cards »

In the midst of big 2015 films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Terminator Genysis, Jurassic Park 4 and Star Wars Episode VII, we’re also getting a reboot of the Fantastic Four movie franchise – though you won’t likely find it on most people’s “Most Anticipated” list for the year.
First of all: there’s been criminally little marketing or promotional material for the movie – a big missed opportunity, as far as we’re concerned. Secondly, the casting has been way off target from what most fans expected; actors Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment), Kate Mara (House of Cards), Miles B. Jordan (Chronicle) and Jamie Bell (Jumper) are playing the principal four roles of Reed Richards, ...

Well, that was fast. David Fincher’s Gone Girl, which has been earning full-on raves from seemingly everyone who has seen the mystery-thriller thus far, isn’t even out yet, and we already know what the talented director will be tackling next. As it turns out, HBO is in luck – Fincher has agreed to helm every episode of its upcoming thriller series Utopia.
The chance to reteam with Gone Girl author/screenwriter Gillian Flynn, who is penning the adaptation, undoubtedly influenced Fincher’s decision to commit to all episodes of Utopia, not just the pilot, as was reported in February. It’s the director’s most extensive foray into television to date, but not his first; Fincher previously directed two episodes of Netflix’s House of Cards, on which he serves as a producer.
In a recent Guardian interview, he stated of Utopia:
“I like the world of it… »

If you're a big brother or sister, you know that when your parents bring home a new baby, that baby rules the house - and your mom and dad. That's the very premise of the book "Boss Baby" that's now being made into a movie by DreamWorks Animation. Deadline reports that Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") will voice the baby and Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards") will voice the corporate villain who battles the baby for the title World's Best Boss. Tom McGrath, the director of the Madasgascar movies, will helm. It will be released on March 18, 2016. »

David Fincher likes his TV. First came his executive producer stint on House of Cards, then that film noir series he’s been bandying about with James Ellroy. And here comes another- Fincher’s just announced that he’ll be doing the director’s version of a TV bingewatch through the entirety of 2015- directing every episode of his planned remake of the BBC conspiracy thriller, Utopia. Please, for yours and everyone else’s sakes, do not confuse the Fincher-approved Utopia (coming to HBO) with the Fox reality series that puts the immense responsibility of building a perfect society in the hands of a group that contains a raw vegan chef, a tantric sex enthusiast and the “Hillbilly MacGuyver” (good luck with that). This is an entirely different piece of television that happens to bear the same name. Instead, it’s about five members of an online comic book forum that procure a rough copy of »

Netflix is continuing its media takeover! After its original programs like Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards have become hits, the streaming service is turning its focus to movies. The Weinstein Company announced that the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel will debut on Netflix and a number of IMAX screens simultaneously next year, marking the first time the service has premiered a film. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend will be available on Aug. 28, 2015, at no extra cost to subscribers. And this is only the first film to be announced that Netflix will try with this model, of which the company's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said, "These are two different experiences, like going to a football game and watching a football game on TV." »
Hillary Clinton has received several congratulatory messages since the birth of her granddaughter Charlotte on Saturday. But she won't be getting any from Stephen Colbert. “Yet another Hillary flip-flop,” Colbert said on his show Monday night. “Four days ago, she wasn't a grandmother and now she claims she is. How can we trust her?” See video: Kevin Spacey Punks Hillary Clinton With Bill Clinton Impersonation in ‘House of Cards’ Spoof Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky was born to parents Chelsea Clinton and her husband Marc Mezvinsky.

Netflix doesn’t need every single one of its subscribers to have a burning desire to see the sequel to a 14-year-old Asian martial arts movie — nor does it really matter to the company that few in the U.S. may actually be able to see it on the bigscreen.
Its goal with the landmark deal with The Weinstein Co. for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend” — to run the film day-and-date with IMAX theatrical release — was to send a message to consumers and Hollywood: Netflix continues to break the mold in the entertainment biz, by delivering movies and TV shows in the way its subscribers want to see them.
Never mind that several U.S. theater chains have already said they’ll refuse to show the film, which means you might not be able to see it at your local multiplex. Three of the country’s four largest exhibitors, »

“She’s not above her material. She’s not making fun of these people, even the nosy neighbor. She’s not making fun of even those archetypes. And she’s interesting in that way. I kind of held my breath and waited to read her first draft and I was so emboldened by it. She was not only capable of slaughtering the darling, she took a peculiar pleasure in offing those extensions of her own imagination.” Bestselling author Gillian Flynn didn’t pull any punches when it came to the script for David Fincher‘s Gone Girl — a script based on her own blockbuster book and her first produced attempt at working in that medium — slicing and dicing and cutting and crafting without prejudice. In fact, even Fincher was stunned by her ability to “off” bits and pieces (and even whole people) from her script, sharing with FilmComment the above quote about Flynn’s interest in keeping »

Stephen King may be one of our most prolific writers, but he tends to let others get the ol’ finger blisters when it comes to adapting his tales for the big screen. One exception? The forthcoming, Peter Askin-directed A Good Marriage, for which Uncle Stevie did decide to pen the screenplay version of his novella.
“I knew Peter Askin and I liked him,” King recently told EW, explaining the origin of the project. “About a thousand years ago, John Mellencamp and I got involved with this musical called Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. We didn’t know anything about musicals, »

David Fincher has been receiving rave reviews for this weekend's thriller Gone Girl, which stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, but instead of focusing on his next feature film, the director is shifting focus to television projects such as HBO's Utopia. During a recent interview with The Guardian, David Fincher confirmed he is directing every Season 1 episode, which will "keep him busy for most of 2015."
We first reported on the project earlier this year, with the director teaming up with Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn to adapt the original U.K. series Utopia into an American series. The show follows a graphic novel which has attained cult status after it predicted a series of global catastrophes. The series centers on a group of rabid fans who find a manuscript for the novel's sequel, as they are being pursued by an organization known as "The Network".
Here's what David Fincher had »
David Fincher will direct the entire first season of Utopia, the HBO series he is producing with Gone Girl’s author Gillian Flynn. The duo announced their plans to adapt the British TV conspiracy series in February, with Fincher directing Flynn’s scripts, but it wasn’t clear just how much Fincher would be behind the camera. (For Netflix’s House of Cards, the other major show Fincher produces, he directed only the first two episodes of season one.)
But Fincher told the Guardian that he intended to helm the entire first season. “I like the world of it,” he said. »

As Gone Girl racks up tremendous accolades, director David Fincher's follow-up project will not be for the big screen but rather the small as he reunites with writer Gillian Flynn for the HBO series "Utopia." According to The Guardian, Gone Girl writer Flynn will adapt the British crime thriller, and unlike Fincher's previous series "House of Cards," the helmer will direct all episodes in the first season. »

A serious game-changer for the traditional film distribution model, Netflix have announced that Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, the sequel to Ang Lee's martial arts epic, will premiere exclusively on the online streaming service, as well as select IMAX screens across the globe simultaneously, on August 28th 2015. This is a turn of events that is not entirely unexpected, considering Netflix turned how we watch original programming on its head with the likes of House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and Arrested Development season 4. It will be interesting to see how this particular distribution deal develops going forward, as this could seriously impact on how films are released in the future. In press release from Netflix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend is the first of several major films backed by Netflix to take advantage of this particular distribution model. The movie will be directed by renowned martial arts choreographer, »
