The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section. Best Kiss Ashley Benson, James Franco & Vanessa Hudgens, "Spring Breakers" Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Scarlett Johansson, »

Conan O’Brien’s unique sense of the absurd will serve him well as host of April 13’s MTV Movie Awards at the Nokia Theater. Audience expectations for craziness are high and, O’Brien says, his hair prep alone will take about 72 hours.
Variety: Who are you hoping wins the highly competitive “Best Wtf Moment” category?
O’Brien: I am pulling for the car sex scene in “The Counselor” because Cameron Diaz actually has sex with a car. If more people had sex with their car instead of driving it, global warming would be a thing of the past.
Variety: You hosted the Emmys in 2002 and 2006. How much more fun do you think you’ll have at this gig?
O’Brien: I think the MTV Movie Awards is going to be my best experience yet, because nobody in the audience is going to be paying attention to the uptight dude in the tux. »

Natalie Dormer isn’t just on people’s minds because Game of Thrones is about to hit again, she’s the new everywhere girl. From The Tudors to the fairly awesome BBC series Silk, to a very cool, if thus far not huge, role on Game of Thrones, Dormer has now shown up with the role of all roles on Elementary, and was in Rush and The Counselor. If more GoT wasn’t enough, she’s coming up in Posh, the new film by the awesome Lone Sherfig, and she’ll be Cressida in both part of the upcoming Mockingjay films that finish out The Hunger Games films.
Not only is she in April’s GQ with a very cool photo shoot, which includes topless poses (which is why you’re here), but she’s also rocking a very hot punk hairstyle (which is somewhat hard to see in the shots below).

The Fantastic Four finally have a villain to face.
With Fox already selecting its main cast of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell to play Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, the Human Torch and the Thing, respectively, its taken a few weeks to select the actor that would play the Fantastic Four's most infamous adversary, Doctor Doom. As of last month, director Josh Trank was deciding between four young, fairly unknown, British actors, including Sam Riley (Maleficent), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor) and Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd) but Variety reports that the studio has chosen Kebbell and is now waiting for him to sign and make it official.
Kebbell is not exactly a household name but has been steadily appearing in prominent movies, including Wrath of the Titans, War Horse and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which Fox will also release, »

Variety reports that Toby Kebbell is in final talks with Fox to play Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s reboot The Fantastic Four. It was previously announced that the studio was also targeting Jack Huston (American Hustle), Domnhall Gleeson (Frank) and Sam Riley (Control) but as the site says “newcomer” Toby Kebbell has been chosen as the villain of the piece.
In recent years, “newcomer” Kebbell has starred in The Counselor, Wrath of the Titans, War Horse, The East and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to name a few, with a lead role in Warcraft also coming up. He will join Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (House of Cards) as Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as the Human Torch and Jamie Bell (Nymphomaniac) as The Thing.
The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015. »

Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother, The Muppets) and Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher, The Counselor) star as a couple who, in need of capturing the passion again, decide to film a sex tape on their iPad. The three hour intimate video ends up accidentally being uploaded to the cloud and they must delete the video from their friends' iPads.
Also featuring in the cast are Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Ellie Kemper (Bad Teacher), Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation), Jack Black (School of Rock), and Jolene Blalock (Star Trek: Enterprise).
It helps that the two leads have chemistry and the film looks to revel in its R-rating. Jason Segel also has a rare ability to charm and repulse in equal measures so we may have a hit on our hands here. »

It was revealed not too long ago that the hunt for The Fantastic Four’s Doctor Doom had been narrowed down to a handful of candidates, but it has now been revealed that a clear favourite has emerged in the form of British actor Toby Kebbell.
He’s no stranger to Hollywood blockbusters after appearing in the likes of Wrath of the Titans and Prince of Persia, but he really impressed after taking on a lead role in the darkly comic Channel 4 series Black Mirror. Since then, Kebbell has appeared in Ridley Scott’s The Counselor, while he’ll also be seen later this year in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and next year in Warcraft.

British actor Toby Kebbell has begun negotiations to play the antagonist Doctor Doom in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot at 20th Century Fox.
Kebbell beat out the likes of Jack Huston and Domhnall Gleeson for the role in the Josh Trank-directed film which stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the famed super-powered quartet.
The actor has had countless supporting roles in many major Hollywood films in recent years including "War Horse," "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," "Wrath of the Titans," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," "Rocknrolla," "The Counselor," "The Conspirator"

Toby Kebbell has been chosen to play the nefarious Victor Von Doom, a.k.a. Doctor Doom in 20th Century Fox's The Fantastic Four reboot. We reported last month that Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables; Jupiter Ascending), Sam Riley (Maleficent) and Jack Huston (American Hustle) were also in contention for the coveted role.
When the deal is finalized, Toby Kebbell joins a cast that includes Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing.
Josh Trank (Chronicle) is directing from a script by Simon Kinberg, based on Marvel's Ultimate Fantastic Four comic book series which featured younger versions of these heroes. Matthew Vaughn, Simon Kinberg and Gregory Goodman are producing, with production scheduled to begin next month in Baton Rogue, Louisiana.

When it comes to casting, the "Fantastic Four" reboot isn't kidding around.
The reinvigorated franchise has found its Doctor Doom (aka Victor von Doom) in British actor Toby Kebbell, Variety reports. And while he may not be as well known as his Ff costars Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell, he's already worked with the likes of Steven Spielberg ("War Horse"), Ridley Scott ("The Counselor"), and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" director Matt Reeves. Chances are, you've seen this guy in action. And chances are, you'll be seeing a lot more of him.
Marvel fans worried about how this incarnation will set itself apart from its forgettable forefathers (2005's "Fantastic Four" and its sequel, 2007's "Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer"), rest assured. In addition to the talented group of actors in front of the camera, director Josh Trank ("Chronicle") heads up the "Fantastic Four" reboot, »

In 2013, Cameron Diaz had what will likely be the most talked about sex scene in her career when she got it on with a Ferrari in The Counselor, but now she's back to having sex scenes with people. This time around the lucky guy is Jason Segel and the movie is Sex Tape. A red-band trailer has just been released for the the flick, and there's no doubt that it earns its red-band status.
The movie apparently follows a couple who make a — you guessed it — sex tape and inadvertently distribute it to all their friends and family. The couple then tries to hide the video from the world, and of course hijinks ensue. This plot sounds more like sitcom-episode fodder than the story for a feature-length movie, but we're still hopeful. After all, we were pleasantly surprised by Bad Teacher, and since this flick has the same director and many of the same actors, »

Ridley Scott‘s The Counselor has everything you could want going for it, but it doesn’t quite come together into the grand statement it wants to be, and it misses the mark without even at least delivering the fun ride it baits you with in the previews. Reminiscent of 2012′s Savages, because a giant of a director went on an odd trip through thinking very highly of the thoughts expressed in the film and the wisdom contained in them, The Counselor isn’t actually saying much, but it keeps cocking its head at you and saying, “See what I did there? Deep, yes?”
Michael Fassbender is the titular counselor, and he’s getting mixed up in things he probably shouldn’t. Everyone along the way tells him so, including Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem (who have character names as an irrelevant technicality). They both play certain connections on the »

Having already starred in Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds and David Ayer's upcoming Fury , Brad Pitt appears to be targeting a new World War II project. Deadline reports that Pitt is eyeing an untitled romantic thriller from Eastern Promises scribe Steven Knight that is set against the backdrop of WWII. Set up at Gk Films, details are few on the untitled project, though the outlet notes that a director is expected to be named shortly with production targeting an early 2015 start. Pitt starred last year in World War Z , The Counselor and, in a minor role, in Steve McQueen's Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave , which he also produced. Fury , meanwhile, hits the big screen November 14. (Photo Credit: Lia Toby / WENN.com) »
Hearing the words ‘made-for-tv movie’ doesn’t exactly fill you with hope. Despite TV’s rising reputation as a contender for the entertainment media crown (it’s coming for you, film), TV movies still carry the reputation of being absolutely rubbish. They lack the credibility of cinema, because, if this crew and this cast couldn’t make it onto the big screen, then Lord knows they were probably doing something wrong.
TV movies are saccharine blobs of mush used to fill out the daytime TV schedule, lazily-directed feature-length soaps with no personality whatsoever – or so goes the myth. And yet in reality it isn’t always the case. TV movies can be where great filmmakers of the future go to cut their teeth, or where old pros go to realise projects too risky for film studios to take on.
There are gems to be found amidst the made-for-tv movie wreckage. »

Exclusive: Fox has just closed a mid- against high-six-figure deal for A Better Place, a spec script by Brad Ingelsby that will be produced by Scott Free’s Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer, with Michael Pruss exec producing. This amounts to a reteam for Ingelsby and Scott. Ingelsby was a 27-year-old AFI grad living at home with his parents in Pennsylvania and working for his father’s insurance business when his very first script, Low Dweller, sold for $650,000 against $1.1 million to Relativity in 2008, with Scott attached to direct and Leonardo DiCaprio to star. Scott and DiCaprio both dropped out but remained producers, and the project eventually became Out Of The Furnace, the gritty drama that Scott Cooper directed with Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana and Willem Dafoe. It was a throwback movie that proved too rough for mainstream audiences, a lot like the Cormac McCarthy-scripted The Counselor, »

In writer-director David Ayer’s last law-enforcement drama, the remarkable “End of Watch,” there wasn’t a moment that didn’t feel lived-in and true. The same cannot be said of Ayer’s “Sabotage,” a gruesome and frequently preposterous B-grade actioner about an elite team of DEA agents who run afoul of a ruthless Mexican cartel — and each other. That the team’s battle-scarred leader is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the best and most substantial of his post-Governator comeback roles, gives a mild kick to this otherwise strained attempt at a latter-day “Wild Bunch” or “Treasure of the Sierra Madre” updated to the mean streets of metro Atlanta. Likely to repel even some of the hard-r action crowd with its intentionally scuzzy milieu and lack of a rooting interest, this $35 million Open Road release will be hard-pressed to top sleeper hit “End of Watch’s” $41 million domestic haul.

Veteran actor John Leguizamo has been cast alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in Nima Nourizadeh’s (Project X) upcoming action-comedy, American Ultra. Written by Max Landis (Chronicle), Eisenberg plays a stoner with a shadowy past forced to combat a government operation seeking to wipe him out. It sounds like a great premise for a stoner film, and with Uma Thurman and Walton Goggins co-starring, the cast is shaping up rather nicely.
With the title being an obvious allusion to America’s infamous “Project Mk Ultra,” the plot will likely spoof many of the conspiracy theories involving drug experiments and the U.S. government. After helming the uninspired Project X, I’m not so sure Nourizadeh is the right director for this type of satirical humour, though. Perhaps his high-energy approach will prove to be a good fit, but right now I’m not feeling too confident. Leguizamo, on the other hand, »
