Get ready to see Robert De Niro like you've never seen him before (very, very dirty) - and Zac Efron like you have (shirtless). In Dirty Grandpa, the two pair up as grandson Jason (Efron) and recently widowed grandpa Dick (De Niro) head to Daytona Beach, Fl. Age is nothing but a number to Dick, who wants to get with pretty college girls like Aubrey Plaza and basically make strait-laced Jason's life a living hell. It's kind of like The Hangover meets Spring Breakers with a side of elderly person sex. The red-band trailer for Dirty Grandpa is now available too, with twice as much of De Niro being filthy, but there is a reward of a mostly-nude Efron if you stick around. The movie comes out Jan. 22, so check out the red-band trailer now. Watch the green-band trailer: »

It feels like just yesterday we got to see Robert De Niro relive his youth with his bros at a bachelor party and as Anne Hathaway's intern. But his trip down memory lane is far from over: For De Niro's latest venture into the world of comedy, he's teamed up with his spiritual successor Zac Efron for the male-driven Tammy-meets–Spring Breakers remake Dirty Grandpa, in which De Niro plays a widower whose mourning process involves manipulating his soon-to-be-wedded preppy grandson (Efron) on a road trip to Daytona Beach. Together, the two indulge in De Niro's nostalgia for spring break, which now involves smoking lots and lots of crack and sleeping with Aubrey Plaza. And Efron only gets to do one of those things! Watch the red band trailer above, and then see the theatrical trailer, via BuzzFeed, below. »

She wowed in this summer’s big disaster movie San Andreas, and now Alexandra Daddario could be in line to join Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson, her recent co-star on ‘Andreas’, for the planned Baywatch movie.
The action comedy, which is due to start shooting next year, is housed over at Paramount, with the studio hoping to match some great box-office results with the similarly themed, and styled, 21 Jump Street movies.
Daddario isn’t the only name being mentioned in the same breath as Baywatch though, as six other names are also on the short list. They are: Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars, Spring Breakers), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf, Unfriended), Bianca Santos (The Duff, Ouija), Alexandra Shipp (Storm in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse) and Denyse Tontz (Big Time Rush, Dog with a Blog).

Read More: Watch: Larry Clark and Harmony Korine Reflect on the 20th Anniversary of 'Kids' Harmony Korine's next movie doesn't hit theaters until 2016, but the "Gummo" and "Spring Breakers" director is still making headlines, though this time it's for an unusual crime that has put a dent into his career as a painter. As the New York Post reported yesterday, Korine's painting, entitled "Blue Checker," has been stolen from the lobby of the Puck Building in Manhattan's SoHo district. The oil on canvas has been valued at $120,000. Sources told the Post that no working surveillance cameras were in the lobby at the time, meaning finding the culprit might prove incredibly difficult. The painting — which comes in at 102" x 84"— first appeared at Korine's summer art exhibition at Gagosian New York's 821 Park Avenue location. The director used masking tape, household paint and squeegees to create artwork. Check out »

There's nothing little about this "Pretty Little Liars" star! James Franco took to Instagram to share a shirtless snapshot with Keegan Allen on the set of their upcoming gay porn drama "King Cobra," which the "Spring Breakers" star is directing. While James is no stranger to showing off his bod on social media, we can't stop staring at Allen's six-pack abs ... and what he's packing below them. Both actors flaunt their goods in the pic, sporting nothing but briefs and, in Franco's case, sweat pants. "King Cobra" will chronicle the murder of gay porn director Bryan Kocis, who was found dead on January 24, 2007, after police were called to a fire at his Pennsylvania home. According to the coroner, Kocis was stabbed 28 times and his throat was cut before the house was set on fire. Two male escorts, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes, were later found guilty for the murder. Prosecutors »

A Ratter is the name given to the shockingly large group of computer hackers who access people’s technological devices and take control. The takeover happens via the use of a Remote Administration Tool (or Rat hence the nickname) and the victim is completely unaware that it is happening. Ratters come in all shapes and sizes, some use the hack as their own private version of big brother, whilst others use it for even more sinister reasons, such as downloading personal files and images which they upload to the internet.
The film Ratter stays very close to the real life applications of ‘ratting’, the entire narrative is shown through the victim’s hacked devices making us, the viewer, also a voyeur and accomplice. It is actually a reworking of first-time feature director Branden Kramer‘s 2012 short film Webcam. In »

Directed by Akiz
Written by Achim Bornhak
German nu-techno artist Akiz opens his debut film with a meek disclaimer to ‘play this film loud’, a rare moment of quiet trepidation before all sorts of sonic and symbiotic hell breaks loose. Tina (Carolyn Genzkow) and her teenage friends are veterans of the decadent Berlin party scene, imbibing a heady cocktail of thrills, pills and bellyaches, and dancing until the dawn. One night, her nocturnal antics get out of hand after she passes out, and in her comatose condition, she nets a dark creature of the id, a grotesque gnomish monster which starts to stalk Nina at school and at home, much to her distress. Whether this abominable apparition is real or a hallucination fueled by her narcotic disintegration is kept close to the film’s nerve-pummeling chest, as physical manifestations of the creature conveniently materialize as the possible »
Rushes collects news, articles, images, videos and more for a weekly roundup of essential items from the world of film.The news that has resounded with us above and beyond all others is the tragic death of Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman, truly one of the great artists of our era. We cannot encapsulate how much we'll miss her and her work.Above: John Byrne's "Portrait of Tilda" (1990), in honor of......The trailer for the Tilda Swinton-starring A Big Splash, director Luca Guadagnino's follow-up to I Am Love."Progress renders all technologies obsolete, but no medium is anachronistic to an artist. The intentional mischaracterization of film as merely technology has been extremely damaging, as it belies the truth about a medium’s many artistic differences and puts those invested in film in the unsympathetic position of being on the wrong side of progress and castigated as Luddites.

Who will save Hollywood? Slate has a new suggestion, and it’s a bold one. In a profile of the indie distributor A24, David Ehrlich suggests that the upstart’s model — a sort of substance-over-size, laser-focused approach to prestige and indie distribution — could provide a blueprint for an industry that’s basically forgotten how to make and sell serious mid-budget movies to adults. “By surgically inserting each release into the zeitgeist, [A24] has paved a new road for provocative, modestly sized cinema, bridging the gap between microbudget indies and monolithic studio products in much the same way Italy’s Autostrada A24 connects Rome to Teramo,” Ehrlich writes, citing in particular one of the company’s earliest films, the gonzo genre hybrid Spring Breakers, and this fall’s awards play Room, which it acquired at the script phase — rare for a distributor of this type. That idea of surgical insertion can best »

It was looking to have a strong opening, but the animated feature Hotel Transylvania 2 has passed all expectations, breaking September opening records in the process.
The movie opened to around $47 million domestically, shooting it straight to the number one position. It broke the previous record of $42 million which, funnily enough, was held by its predecessor Hotel Transylvania. The movie also added $29 million from its worldwide screenings, giving the movie a grand total of $76 million on its opening weekend. Not bad at all.
Hotel Transylvania 2 was expected to do well, but many felt it would struggle against Everest following its stellar IMAX opening last weekend. However, that movie stumbled at the box office, most likely due to the popularity of Hotel Transylvania 2.

The producers of London Fields have responded to the decision by Tiff top brass to pull the noir thriller ahead of Friday’s world premiere following allegations by the director.
“We are greatly disappointed that Tiff decided to pull the film from the festival,” the producers said in a statement.
“We have always loved launching our films here, but feel that in particular case there has been an ill-considered decision made against our rights.
“It’s the first time we have ever heard of a festival removing a movie from the festival due to it’s [sic] imagery being deemed too provocative.
“The timing and the content of the director’s lawsuit shows that it is a publicity stunt. The filing of [director] Mathew Cullen’s complaint violates the arbitration provisions of his own guild, the DGA.
“Sadly, Mathew can’t deal with the fact that he does not control the final cut of the movie.
“He was given »
