Coming 2 America Has Too Many Stars At this Point

Anyone remember what tends to happen when too many big stars are thrust into the same movie? Sin City, Dogma, Rat Race, This Is the End, and many more have a hit and miss record when you put too many stars into one production as Hope Schreiber of Complex indicates. It’s possible that movies laden with as many talented individuals as Coming 2 America is getting can do very well, as Animal House and a few others are good examples.

Harry Potter Stars Emma Watson & Tom Felton Reunite, and Fans Are Going Crazy

  • MovieWeb
It's a happy moment for Harry Potter fans when the young cast pops up in the limelight, especially when they're together. Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) brought that joy to instagram this morning.

The actor behind Draco Malfoy posted a photo of the pair practicing guitar in their pajamas. The Deathly Hallows actor captioned the photo with "quick learner x." It was taken in South Africa, but no other details have been released by either star about their trip or the significance of Emma learning some musical skills.

Tom Felton and Emma Watson have remained friends throughout the years, posting a selfie or video here and there. In February, Watson posted a picture of her taken by her co-star.

Apocalypse Now: Final Cut Review

Some movies demand to be seen on the big screen. I’m thinking of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Lawrence of Arabia, Andrei Rublev and yes, Apocalypse Now. And in the case of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 masterpiece, now you can do just that.

Playing in AMC theaters everywhere, the latest cut of the Vietnam War story can now be cherished in IMAX with the latest in Dolby Atmos sound. Just when you thought this nightmare couldn’t seem any more real, Apocalypse Now: Final Cut comes along to blow your mind in a whole new way.

By this point, most of you will know how it opens. Martin Sheen’s Captain Willard is laying in bed; his chest hair as dense as the Vietnam jungle. Staring at the fan spinning above him, we hear the sound of helicopter wings playing over The Rolling Stones’ “This is the End.” Only, it’s the beginning.

Amazon Prime Video’s ‘The Boys’ Review

Credit: Amazon Prime Video

Superheroes have moved in some exciting directions over the past decade. The once judged and frowned-upon genre, has now been elevated to previously unimaginable heights. Almost every single property under the sun has been snapped up by Hollywood at this point. Everything from talking raccoons, life-sized ants, and telepathic caterpillars have appeared on the big screen now. To put it bluntly, no matter how beloved these characters are, there’s no denying how ludicrously surreal and outlandish the whole thing has become. One could say then, that it’s the perfect time for ‘The Boys’ to come and shake things up.

The series is developed by the all-star team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, alongside the man behind the ironically longevous Supernatural, Eric Kripke. Based on the obscure comic book of the same name, The Boys arrives at a particularly interesting time for society and pop culture.

Why Seth Rogen Dreads Promoting Movies Like the Russo Brothers’ ‘You, Me and Dupree’

Why Seth Rogen Dreads Promoting Movies Like the Russo Brothers’ ‘You, Me and Dupree’
Well maybe this explains why Seth Rogen didn’t get to cameo in “The Avengers.”

Rogen graces the cover of the new issue of GQ (along with his dog Zelda), and the stoner star of “Long Shot,” “Knocked Up,” “This Is the End” and many more talked about some of the frustrations early in his career. He singled out two films in particular: the romantic comedy “You, Me and Dupree,” which is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and his superhero starring vehicle “The Green Hornet.”

Rogen said he dreaded doing press for a movie that he himself is not excited to go see, and as a result, he seeks greater creative control on all the projects he’s writing, producing and starring in.

‘Long Shot’ Review: Dir. Jonathan Levine (2019)

Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron share the screen in a rom-com about an unlikely romantic pairing blossoming against all odds.

Lionsgate

At this stage in Seth Rogen’s career, you’re either well and truly in for the brand of comedy that his production company Point Grey Pictures push out, or you simply just don’t click with the blend of stoner comedy/gross-out humour that he has often been behind. Rogen’s back catalogue has certainly been varied, ranging from frat-boy comedies with a twist (Bad Neighbours) to apocalyptic hi-jinks (This Is The End) and animated food orgies (Sausage Party), Rogen’s brand of comedy certainly may seem juvenile, but there is always a great level of wit and heart of Rogen’s joints that make them, at least for me, some of the stronger modern studio comedy offerings that Hollywood has today.

Lost James Franco Movie Zeroville Is Finally Getting Released

Lost James Franco Movie Zeroville Is Finally Getting Released
Nearly four years after initially securing distribution, James Franco's movie Zeroville is finally going to hit theaters later this year. We initially reported on this one back in 2014, so it's been a long time coming. This movie has a stacked cast and was made long before Franco was subject to quite a few sexual misconduct allegations, when he was unquestionably a top talent in the industry. In any event, the movie has finally found a new home in myCinema and, at long last, it's going to be released.

James Franco both directs and stars in Zeroville, which is an adaptation of Steve Erickson's novel. It was originally supposed to arrive in 2016, after the domestic distribution rights were secured by Alchemy the year prior at the Toronto International Film Festival. Unfortunately, Alchemy went under just a few months later and the movie wound up being caught up as part of the fallout,
