Warner Bros. has announced that George Miller's long-awaited sequel Mad Max: Fury Road will be released in 3D on May 15th, 2015. It's pretty incredible to see all of the films being released in 2015. It might just be the best year of movies ever.
Miller is done shooting the film and is currently in post-production. The director previously described the story of the movie as follows,
"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."
The movie stars Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky, Charlize Theron (Monster, Prometheus) as Imperator Furiosa; Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max, Sleeping Beauty) as Immortan Joe; and »

Channing Tatum may be ripped ... but he's not very limber! In a hilarious video parodying Jean-Claude Van Damme's famous Volvo truck split (which made rounds on the internet earlier this month), the actor tries his best to re-create the dangerous stunt ... on two craft service carts from the set of the upcoming flick "22 Jump Street." Check out the hilarious (yet, slightly painful to watch) video above!Props to the "Magic Mike" star for giving the crazy trick a try. Now, check out Jcvd's video below to see how it's really done. In Channing's defense, there aren't too many men out there who could pull off the splits like Jean. Tatum does however hold the title for 2012's Sexiest Man Alive -- that has to mean something right?What do you think of Tatum's parody?

Over a year ago, we got a first look at Arnold Schwarzenegger in the action thriller Ten from director David Ayer (End of Watch, Street Kings), but now the film is called Sabotage and we have some more photos from the film. The film follows an elite DEA task force who find themselves being taken out one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house. The first photo only featured Schwarzenegger, but now some new photos show us some of his team, though the only ones we can pick out seem to be Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) and Mireille Enos (World War Z), but Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway and more are also in the movie. It looks like there's going to be some kick-ass action in this one. Here are the new photos from David Ayer's Sabotage from USA Today: Sabotage is directed by David Ayer »

Though we haven’t even seen a teaser trailer yet, the folks behind the upcoming 22 Jump Street decided to have a little fun behind the scenes by spoofing the new Volvo ad featuring Jean Claude Van Damme and his unbelievably flexible body.
In terms of flexibility, Channing Tatum proved he has plenty in Magic Mike. But the former Sexiest Man Alive (now that guy with tattoos has the title) got into character for the upcoming sequel to show off his own epic abilities.
Compare the clips below:

There are two big events in the world of entertainment geekdom this weekend - the debut of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" in cinemas, and the premiere of the 50th anniversary special of British sci-fi stalwart "Doctor Who". What if the two were able to combine somehow?
The online viral video "The Doctor Games" has done just that, pitting all thirteen onscreen incarnations of The Doctor (the official eleven, plus Peter Capaldi and John Hurt's versions) in a Hunger Games-style battle to the death. From the fourth Doctor using his colorful scarf as a garrotte, to the fifth Doctor taking an eye out with a stick of celery, it's an amusing fan mashup full of callbacks to both fandoms.

Yesterday I briefly mentioned David Ayer’s upcoming film, “Sabotage,” and today we’re treated to a few images from the film- courtesy of USA Today. The “End of Watch“ and “Street Kings” director is returning, once again, to the world of law enforcement and its dealings with organized crime. The IMDb synopsis of the film reads like this: “Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.”
The rest of the images can be seen here.
The film is set to be released on April 11th, and will probably be the most “serious” of the movies that Schwarzenegger has made since returning to Hollywood. His return to pure action, outside of the “Expendables” movies, has been met with general apathy. »

The much-tattooed, smooth-voiced Maroon 5 frontman and coach on The Voice Adam Levine has been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2013. The singer was modest in his acceptance of the title, telling People: ”As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn’t really think that this was on the table.”
2013 has been the culmination of many things for the 34-year-old star, who keeps in shape with yoga and spinning. He’s sharpened his acting chops with turns on American Horror Story and Family Guy, moved from musical guest to host on Saturday Night Live, »

There’s nothing Ellen Degeneres likes more than her hometown of New Orleans and male strippers — at least if you buy the intro that actor Channing Tatum (Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street) received during a satellite appearance on Friday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he kicked off this year’s Team Oscar college search.
The competition is aimed at giving young filmmakers an opportunity to appear on stage during the live Oscar broadcast.

Channing Tatum had a lot of big news to share when he made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for an interview that airs today. Speaking with Ellen through a live feed from New Orleans, Channing shared that his daughter, Everly, just recently got her first tooth. "It's the cutest thing . . . razor sharp," he said, adding, "I think she's going to be cutting me very soon, but it's cute as it can be." Channing also confirmed that he is currently working on writing the sequel for Magic Mike and will start filming the new project in a year's time. He also revealed the very special way that he'll be involved in the Oscars in February. Watch the video to find out all about Channing's big news. Source: Michael Rozman/Warner Bros. »

By now, you know that Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto sacrificed their bodies and dropped more than 30 pounds each to play their HIV-positive characters in Dallas Buyers Club. It’s understandable that those details have been obsessed over by the media in stories and reviews, but there’s more than a spartan diet behind both men’s convincing transformations into the homophobic redneck (McConaughey) who becomes a drug-dealing savior to the demoralized gay community in the mid-1980s and the delicate transsexual (Leto) who becomes his unlikely business partner.
Ron Woodroof was a real guy, a bull-riding, drug-snorting, womanizing bastard »

There’s nothing the least bit sentimental here. Nothing flashy or showy in McConaughey’s rough-edged portrait. But there is enormous compassion. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): haven’t been a McConaughey fan
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Could be the very best thing about Dallas Buyers Club is that it instantly and effortlessly brushes aside any preconceived snarkery one might bring to it. Or that I might bring to it, at least. You know, like how the lead actor’s public dramatic weight loss in preparation for portraying a dying man in a based-on-a-sad-true-story issues drama is — *snort* and eyeroll — a sure bid for an Oscar nom by a celeb mostly previously known for dreadful rom-coms and bad offscreen behavior and now desperate to be seen as serious. Gotta be, right?
Not this time. Though that Oscar nomination is probably coming anyway, »

As we near the holiday movie season, it’s time to delve into fairly recent history. Not as recent as Captain Phillips or The Fifth Estate, though. Let’s go back to a decade that’s getting a whole lotta’ nostalgia love these days, the 1980′s (hey, it’s the setting for the hit ABC sitcom “The Goldbergs”). But it wasn’t all Et, the A-Team, and Culture Club. A terrific documentary from last year, How To Survive A Plague, took us back to the early part of the decade when we all became aware of the AIDS epidemic. A pretty scary time that brought out the worst in many people. Intolerance and ignorance ran rampant. But, somehow it brought out the best in others. The new film, Dallas Buyers Club, is a drama based on the life of one such man who somehow became a better human being as he confronted his own mortality. »

A couple of years ago, the announcement that Matthew McConaughey was named GQ's Man of the Year might not have seemed as well-deserved as it does in 2013. He's coming off a string of increasingly well-received movies from "Magic Mike" to "Dallas Buyers Club," and up next is starring opposite best bud Woody Harrelson in the HBO series "True Detective." It's an impressive transformation for an actor who once used to be known best for his surfer dude and hippie tendencies, and one he's well aware of.
In an interview with GQ, McConaughey says he had "no frequency of his conception" in the public eye until recently. "Now I get it. Outdoors, shirtless on the beach, does a lot of rom-coms, girlfriend loves him, good-looking. It's like he rolls out of bed and shows up and makes it look easy," he says.
It got to the point where he also decided »
Safe to say there's something for everyone in this pic. Channing Tatum suited up in football gear on the set of his latest flick 22 Jump Street while filming in New Orleans on Tuesday, Nov. 12 with costar Jonah Hill. The 33-year-old stud, who plays Jenko in the follow-up to the 2012 comedy 21 Jump Street, shot a few scenes on the football field at Tulane University where the Magic Mike hottie showed off his superhot bod...while playing with a tiny pup. Add this pic to the ever-growing list of reasons why Tatum deserved to be named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive last year. "One bad man. Ready to bring the pain! #22JumpStreet," the actor tweeted yesterday, captioning a photo of »
Slated Editorial Director Colin Brown is back with another essay in his series on packaging films. This one's a two-parter about casting. Below is the second installement, which includes a ten-step checklist for how to cast your feature. Check out the first part of this exploration of casting here. You can check out Colin's writing on the filmonomics blog, and you can see this post in its original format here. “I lost money for the first time ever in my career over the last two years,” beamed Matthew McConaughey in his signature drawl as he picked up this year’s actor trophy at the recent Hollywood Film Awards. “But I did have a helluva lot of fun.” McConaughey’s conscious decision to"recalibrate" his shirtless rom-com persona into something edgier has since led him to a succession of eye-catching performances in director-driven, lower-budget films - "Magic Mike," "Killer Joe," "The Paperboy, »

Movie stars, as we know them, are not so much dead in 2013 as much as they’re no longer making movies. Celebrity has stretched far beyond film or television; people become famous now without having accomplished much of anything, just for being at the right place at the right time, or tweeting out the right scandalous photo to set afire the comments sections at TMZ or Perez Hilton. Though movies cost more than they used to—both to make and to partake—they are less frequently headlined by a man or woman whose very presence ensures bankability. A handful of movie stars remain, yet even someone like Robert Downey, Jr. can only guarantee a movie will make back its profit and then some when he’s donned his Iron Man suit.
The closest Western society has to movie stars these days don’t make movies that gross hundreds of millions »

How do you sell a scent over a medium that can only physically convey images and sound? Easy, you attach a few famous names, film it in black and white and use lots of ambiguous yet evocative dialogue.
That's what Dolce & Gabbana have done for their new perfume, The One. The short film/advert thingy has Martin Scorsese (Shutter Island) directing Scarlett Johansson (Captin America: The Winter Soldier) and his Wolf of Wall Street collaborator Matthew McConaughey (Magic Mike).
There are many Scorsese flairs to enjoy. The black and white cinematography of Raging Bull, his camera movement and the setting of New York, while McConaughey and Johansson are both equally smouldering. It also contains some wonderfully self-reflexive moments ("Are you always this serious?" "Only before a love scene").
It's all pretty easy on the eyes. The advert, that is. The perfume will probably cause inflammation if applied to your face. »

We all know that seasoned stand-up comedians and the entire cast of Saturday Night Live can do some solid celebrity impressions, but they aren't the only ones who can poke some fun at Hollywood's finest. Tom Hiddleston recently showed off his spot-on impression of Midnight in Paris costar Owen Wilson, while Bradley Cooper can do his own imitation of Owen. Neither of them can top Matt Damon though, who has taken on Matthew McConaughey's Southern drawl numerous times over the years. Check out the most imitated celebs and the celebs who can do the most imitations. Owen Wilson Tom Hiddleston picked up a few pointers after making Midnight in Paris with Owen.

"I wasn't sure about Matthew at first," Vallee told The Hollywood Reporter. "Mr The Most Handsome Man with Muscles?
"Then I met him and found a man who really wanted to change perceptions and have new challenges in his career."
McConaughey stars in the film as Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician who is told by doctors that he is HIV-positive and only has 30 days to live.
Inspired by real events, the movie is set in 1986 and charts the story of Woodroof's battle to try and discover alternative treatments for those suffering from HIV, which culminates in him setting up an illegal operation smuggling medication over the Mexican border.
McConaughey and co-star Jared Leto both undertook extreme weight loss »
