Crazy Rich Asians Teaser Sets Gold Standard for Summer Comedies

We have our first look at Crazy Rich Asians. The movie adaptation of Kevin Kwan's best-selling book comes from Warner Bros. and arrives in theaters this summer. Jon M. Chu (Now You See Me 2) directed the contemporary romantic comedy. Now, we have our first brief teaser, showcasing the first footage, with the full trailer set to arrive online this Monday. While the teaser may be brief, there is an awful lot to look at here, with the footage showcasing the lives of some insanely wealthy people.

The teaser doesn't reveal too much, but gives a sense of the scale this movie is taking on. Crazy Rich Asians does appear to live up to its name, as it indeed features a bunch of crazy rich Asian people. It's very rare, if not unheard of, for an American movie to feature such a predominantly Asian cast. Not only that, but

Look Who’s Talking at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival

  • HeyUGuys
2018 Tribeca Film Festival – Look Who’s Talking Now!

Last year’s Tribeca Film Festival Tribeca Talks series saw the unlikely on stage pairing of Robert Rodriguez and Barbra Streisand to discuss the latter’s career. Rodriguez revealed that in his household growing up Streisand was already revered as a singer and actress, but when she became a filmmaker it inspired a young Robert to take up a camera himself.

The 2018 line-up doesn’t have any pairings quite as surprising, but there are still some exciting names to see alongside each other such as Alec Baldwin and Spike Lee who’ll discuss their movie passions, while Tribeca Film Festival co-founder and all round legend Robert De Niro will interview Bradley Cooper about his career as actor, producer and director. Other names taking to the Tribeca Talks stage this year include Alexander Payne, Laura Poitras, Nancy Meyers, John Legend, Edward Burns, Jamie Foxx,

Joaquin Phoenix Won’t Let Heath Ledger’s Iconic Joker Scare Him Away from the Role
In case you forgot, a Joker origin movie directed by The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips, written by 8 Mile scribe Scott Silver, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese is happening. Though the movie still sounds like someone threw a bunch of Film Twitter words into an online generator, the Warner Bros. movie continues to be a very real project. The only element of the […]

31 Scene-Stealing Animals in Movies and TV (Photos)

31 Scene-Stealing Animals in Movies and TV (Photos)
Even when a the focus of a film or TV show is on its star humans, cameos and small parts by animals often grab attention away from headlining actors. Click through to see our list of scene stealing animals:

Billy Crystal‘s character in the 1991 comedy “City Slickers” adopts a calf and names him Norman.

Once Punxsatawny Phil poked his head above ground, all hell broke loose — at least in one of the seemingly infinite amount of days Bill Murray endured in the 1993 comedy “Groundhog Day.”

The appearance of the cat in the season finale of HBO crime drama “The Night Of” was one of the most tweeted about things the night it aired.

Digby, the king charles cavalier spaniel in 2015’s “The Interview” proved to be both precious and integral to the film’s climactic end.

Yes, there’s an actual goat in the college hazing drama “Goat.” Without spoiling it, the animal is at the center of a tragic plot twist that happens toward the end of film.

Speaking of goats, there’s an evil one featured in 2015 horror movie “The Witch.”

The cat in “Inside Llewyn Davis” knew no bounds, escaping multiple times and to faraway places.

Talking bulldog Mr. Beefy made “Little Nicky” with Adam Sandler a whole lot more fun.

A walrus stood out in another Adam Sandler movie, “50 First Dates,” also starring Drew Barrymore.

The snake in 2000’s “Road Trip” got memorably mouthy.

The tiger in the bathroom in 2009’s “The Hangover” put a night of drunken debauchery among a group of guys over the top.

Comet the golden retriever in “Full House” was pretty handy sometimes.

The bear in “The Revenant” is easily among the most ferocious in cinema history.

Lucky the cat took some attention away from the famously smart-mouthed Alf in this 1990s sitcom.

Baxter! The pooch from “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” was quite the little survivor.

Joaquin Phoenix Wouldn’t Be Afraid To Follow In Heath Ledger’s Footsteps As The Joker

Warner Bros.’ untitled Joker origin film is perhaps the most exciting production presently gestating. When it was announced last year that The Hangover director Todd Phillips would helm the picture, news that Martin Scorsese had signed on as co-producer soon followed, and a casting decision seemed imminent with Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio being eyed for the titular role.

While Phillips and Scorsese remain attached, the rumours about DiCaprio’s impending casting dispersed and have since been replaced with hearsay surrounding another A-lister, Joaquin Phoenix. Granted, nothing’s been confirmed just yet and making things more confusing is the fact that the actor refuses to comment on it.

That continues today, as in a recent interview with Collider, the 43-year-old maintained that he doesn’t know anything about the film. Still, he did say that following in Heath Ledger’s footsteps wouldn’t be a big deal as his take

Joker: Joaquin Phoenix Wouldn’t Be Afraid Of Following Heath Ledger

Joaquin Phoenix wouldn’t be pressured following Heath Ledger’s take on DC’s Clown Prince of Crime if he ever takes on the lead role in the upcoming Joker origins movie. Directed by The Hangover helmer Todd Phillips while prolific filmmaker Martin Scorsese is being courted to produce, the movie will be a period piece set in the ’80s and will follow the Joker during his days as a struggling comedian.

Joaquin Phoenix Says He Knows Absolutely Nothing About The Joker

The as-yet untitled upcoming Joker movie from Warner Bros is most definitely one of the most exciting films turning the wheels of production right now. The fact that Todd Phillips, who directed The Hangover, is said to be in charge, along with Martin Scorsese, as co-producer, and rumors that Academy Award-winner (finally!) Leornardo DiCaprio may be showing out as a lead character, have all combined to make for an intriguing scenario. However, while the Phillips/Scorsese teams remains intact, it is now rumored that DiCaprio’s connection to the movie is no longer ongoing. It would seem that Joaquin Phoenix, another well-known

'A Quiet Place' and 'Blockers' Look Strong Heading into Weekend

'A Quiet Place' and 'Blockers' Look Strong Heading into Weekend
March finished down -24% compared to last year's record-breaking performance and yet the first quarter of the year finished down just -2% compared to last year, thanks in large part to Black Panther making up nearly 23% of the quarter's overall gross.

It's far too early in April to make any declarations as to whether this month will turn things around, but things do look promising with the likes of Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon as well as this weekend's top two offerings.

Both A Quiet Place and Blockers are showing plenty of promise, receiving strong reviews and exhibiting signs of lengthy runs, and be on the lookout for Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs as it expands into nearly 550 theaters before going nationwide next week.

Looking to finish atop the weekend box office is Paramount's well-reviewed horror A Quiet Place, which currently holds a 97% rating on RottenTomatoes. Additionally,

Joaquin Phoenix Says Playing The Joker Could Be “Interesting”

Last year, Academy Award-nominee Todd Phillips (Borat, Old School, The Hangover) officially signed on to direct Warner Bros.’ currently untitled Joker origin film. With Scott Silver (The Fighter) serving as co-writer alongside Phillips, illustrious director Martin Scorsese acting as co-producer, and Academy Award-winner Leonardo DiCaprio being eyed for the titular role, the project drew a considerable amount of attention on social media. Since August 2017, however, things have been eerily quiet.

Taking place in Gotham City during the 1980s, the film will not be part of the DC Extended Universe, which, judging by how that thing is careening off-course, is probably for the best. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like DiCaprio will be filling the clown’s shoes, worn previously by three Oscar winners, Heath Ledger, who won for his portrayal of the titular villain, Jared Leto and Jack Nicholson. On the bright side, though, the movie might get another A-lister to step into the role,

Suicide Squad director explains The Joker’s original role in the film’s ending

Before Warner Bros. drastically altered last year’s Justice League with a round of significant reshoots, the studio took its chainsaw to another DC Films release in David Ayer’s 2016 supervillain team-up Suicide Squad.

One of the biggest changes to that film revolved around The Joker, with Jared Leto’s role cut significantly, and the Clown Prince of Crime’s relationship with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn toned down to make it less abusive.

As we glimpsed in the trailers and marketing material, The Joker would also have been more involved in the film’s third act, with the Clown Prince of Crime reappearing after the helicopter crash to confront Task Force X.

Taking to Twitter, director Ayer has revealed his original plans for Leto’s Joker, stating that: “After Joker dropped [Harley] from the [helicopter] and crashed, Enchantress made a deal with him. He was going to take Harley home and

Rob Riggle Fought For Dramatic Role In 'Midnight Sun'

  • CineMovie
Rob Riggle often tickles our funny bone as the comic relief in many of his movies (21 Jump Street, The Hangover) and television projects. We've also often seen the comedian play military and authoritative types (12 Strong, Let's Be Cops) given his tall statue and military background, but this time he wanted to play up the sensitive side of a character. Riggle's tells Sabina Graves how he fought for the role as a single father to an teen (played by Bella Thorne) suffering from a rare disease in Midnight Sun. Watch the interview below.

Scorsese’s Joker Can Make The Killing Joke Relevant Again

Amidst the various upcoming projects that Warner Bros. have announced under the DC banner, perhaps the most curious is their planned spin-off movie dedicated to the origin story of The Joker. With The Hangover director Todd Phillips attached to helm the movie, and none other than the legendary Martin Scorsese on board as executive producer, this off-shoot from the official DC Extended Universe proved to be as enigmatic as it was divisive. Some fans felt that Jared Leto, who will apparently remain the franchise’s official Joker, hadn’t been given enough time to prove his worth in his 10-minute appearance in Suicide Squad. Others welcomed the idea of DC breaking away from their confusing and poorly planned franchise structure and using one of the most iconic villains on pop culture as its gateway.

First Possible Details Surface for Todd Phillips’ Joker Origin Movie

Attention, The Killing Joke fans! A new report has surfaced suggesting Warner Bros.' Joker origin movie might be taking some cues from Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's celebrated/controversial 1988 graphic novel series, which is considered by many the definitive Joker tale. Per The Wrap, the origin movie will portray the Clown Prince of Crime as a failed comedian in the 1980s who goes on to become a Gotham crime boss "after bombing with audiences". As previously reported, The Hangover and War Dogs filmmaker Todd Phillips is set to co-write and direct the film, which is intended to …

3 Films Shot In Real-Life Las Vegas Casinos

The attraction between Hollywood and Las Vegas has always been a strong one. Many movies and TV series have shot there over the years – which isn’t surprising when you realise that Vegas lies just over 270 miles to the northeast – but did you know that some movies were filmed actually inside some of the working casinos? Here are just three of them from the last few years.

Now You See Me

Now You See Me is a movie not based on casinos, but it did actually film in one. Like with UK casinos, Las Vegas revolves around illusion and magic and acts like David Copperfield and Penn and Teller actually have residencies in Sin City. In the 2013 movie Now You See Me, filmmakers chose to film their movie – which is all about magic and deception – in one of the biggest casinos on the strip, the MGM Grand, which just so
