The year of Kevin Hart continues this weekend, with the release of the ensemble rom-com sequel Think Like a Man Too – and with it, comes the first trailer for Hart’s 2015 comedy, The Wedding Ringer. In the latter film, Hart shares headlining duties with Josh Gad, the actor/writer who’s usually played second-fiddle in his movie appearances to date – be they live-action (see: Jobs, The Internship, etc.) or animated (see: Disney’s Frozen, which utilized Gad’s vocal talents as the enchanted snowman Olaf).
Hart, as introduced in the first trailer (watch it above, if you haven’t already), stars in Wedding Ringer as Jimmy, a fellow who makes a living by serving as the best man for grooms who, for whatever reason, cannot find a proper best man for their impending wedding. Basically, this film’s premise is about as plausible as, say, Will Smith enjoying a ...

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “An Entirely Too Literal Examination Of the Friendship Between Bill and Ted” — Evan Saathoff at Badass Digest once again proves why he’s one of the best writers there, finding profundity in the frivolous double plus important. “This extreme unity goes even further than that. Throughout their adventures and journeys, we see multiple forms of Bill and Ted — evil robot form, good robot form and future form. All display the same level of equality. Note that when Bill and Ted meet their future selves in Excellent Adventure, they become more like quadruplets than a pair of twins. Interestingly, the series’ only actual set of twins, the extraterrestrial scientist, Station, can merge its two halves into a greater whole when necessary. Bill and Ted do not have this power. They »

★★☆☆☆There's more than a hint of hagiography in Joshua Michael Stern's tick-box biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, out now in the UK on both DVD and VOD. On paper at least, the late Jobs represents ripe material. He was a megalomaniac figure who would revolutionise the technology industry. He was a man whose life was full of betrayal (both committed by and to him), who grew up in the hubbub of the sun-soaked hills of Silicon Valley at the birth of the home computer revolution. He took on the music industry with the iPod and made tablet computers a reality that all would want to own. Surely this would be essential viewing in the right hands? Sadly, Jobs' rise is firmly in the wrong hands.

Ashton Kutcher plays computer genius and Apple founder Steve Jobs in this efficient biopic. Director Joshua Michael Stern traces the rise of Jobs from barefoot college geek to corporate overlord, capturing both his intense drive and vision as well as his occasional bouts of fury directed at unsatisfactory employees.

The last time we saw Leonardo DiCaprio in a Danny Boyle movie, he was in an internet cafe checking his email. That wouldn’t be such a striking image in most movies, but it is in The Beach, a feature released in 2000 in which the actor spends most of the running time in a secret, self-sustaining Southeast Asia island utopia. And now it’s an interesting place for the actor and director to have left off because, according to The Hollywood Reporter, their »

Well, that didn’t take long. It was announced a short while ago that David Fincher had walked away from his planned biopic on Steve Jobs, over issues of money and control, and it now looks like Sony Pictures is set to rebound fairly nicely. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story today that Danny Boyle- the director behind such films as Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 127 Hours, and 28 Days Later- is in talks to take over the project. That’s not all. While Fincher had been eyeing Christian Bale for the title role, Boyle is said to have approached Leonardo DiCaprio.
You may recall that there was all ready an attempt to capitalize on the visionary tech giant, which starred Ashton Kutcher and was directed by Joshua Michael Stern. But jOBS was a swing and a miss. The film flopped at the box office, and was savaged by critics. But if »
