Target Runs, Press Tours and Hanging With The Bachelor: Inside Channing Tatum's Life Post Split

Target Runs, Press Tours and Hanging With The Bachelor: Inside Channing Tatum's Life Post Split
Timid is a word that just might not exist in Channing Tatum's vocabulary. "I get one shot at life, and I can say that I've lived a crazy one, and I've pushed the limit almost at every turn," he bragged in a 2014 GQ profile, "and I'm super proud of that." Granted, he was pontificating on his decision to play Danny McBride's pimp in Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill's 2013 gross out comedy This Is the End, in which he wears both a leash and a Mexican wrestling mask and, in one deleted scene, drinks the blood squirting from James Franco's severed left limb. But he could have just as easily been discussing his first official post-break up activity. Three weeks after announcing...

Movie Review: Game Night

It wasn’t so long ago that hard R-rated comedies were coming out every week. The Hangover (2009) seemed to come out of nowhere and rejuvenate the genre to blockbuster heights. In the years following we got the likes of Bad Teacher (2011), Hot Tub Time Machine (2010), This is the End (2013), two more incredibly unfunny Hangover sequels (2011/2013), and Horrible Bosses (2011). There were many more of course, but it’s that last one that draws a tie to the latest hard R-rated comedy attempting to hit the zeitgeist. Horrible Bosses came out in the summer of 2011 when we were bombarded with blockbusters like Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, X-Men: First Class, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The comedy was a huge success for the studio as it entertained audiences without over-sensitizing them.

Flash forward almost seven years later and you’ll notice Warner Bros.

‘Singularity’ Comedy Pilot Not Going Forward At FX

Conceived by Lee, the comedy starring Damon Wayans Jr. and Amanda Lund, was set in a future when artificial intelligence greatly surpasses human intelligence, resulting in profound changes to our society. Singularity was said to be similar in tone to Rogen and Goldberg's disaster movie This Is the End, which…

Danny McBride & Rosemarie DeWitt Shine In Overcooked ‘Arizona’ [Sundance Review]

Danny McBride has always been a great screen presence, whether in indies such as David Gordon Green‘s “All the Real Girls,” right through to comedies such as “Pineapple Express” and “This is the End.” He’s always elevated whatever he’s been in with his unique style of slacker comedy. McBride’s greater impact, h0wever, might have been on television where he built the legend of failed professional baseball pitcher Kenny Powers in four successful seasons on HBO‘s “Eastbound and Down.”

In “Arizona,” directed by Jonathan Watson, McBride is given an all-too-rare leading role as Sonny.

‘The Disaster Artist’ Dp Brandon Trost on Recreating Bad Movie Scenes & Working with James Franco

By and large, comedies are not made to look cinematic. More often than not, the frame is flooded with light, the camera is locked down, and the actors are left to keep things interesting. That’s why cinematographer Brandon Trost has been such a breath of fresh air. Through films like This Is the End, Neighbors, The Night Before, and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, Trost has gone to great lengths to create a dynamic frame with compelling camera movements. It never detracts from the comedy at hand, but it also makes the film feel downright cinematic and not at …

New Halloween Movie Is Ditching R-Rated Gore for True Scares

New Halloween Movie Is Ditching R-Rated Gore for True Scares
Everything about the upcoming Halloween movie sounds good, but it's all coming from a pretty odd place. Danny McBride, the man known for his roles in movies like This is the End and Pineapple Express, co-wrote the script for the reboot with David Gordon Green, a man also known for his comedy work. But they keep saying the right things about it. In a recent interview, McBride reveals that the Halloween reboot will focus more on tension, as opposed to gore, like John Carpenter's original. Here's what he had to say about it.

"We're trying to. The original is all about tension. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) doesn't even know that Michael Myers exists until the last minutes of the movie. So much of it you're in anticipation of what's going to happen and the dread that Carpenter spins so effortlessly in that film, I think we were really

James Gunn and Kevin Feige on the Guardians director’s role as Marvel’s “cosmic consultant”

While Marvel Studios is keeping its Phase Four plans tightly under wraps (well, save for Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3), we do know that there’s going to be an increased emphasis on the cosmic side of the McU, with Guardians director James Gunn said to be working closely with Kevin Feige as a “cosmic consultant”.

Well, both Gunn and Feige have commented on this during an interview with Vanity Fair, and it seems it’s not quite as formal a role as The Avengers director Joss Whedon had during Phase Two of the McU – at least, not yet.

“They’ve talked to me about that,” said Gunn. “They’re interested in that. But I haven’t decided what my role is going to be after Guardians 3. Avengers 3 and 4 are the end of an era of Marvel. This is the end of a long-form story that’s

The Disaster Artist's James Franco on taking us behind the camera on the biggest cult movie ever

The Disaster Artist's James Franco on taking us behind the camera on the biggest cult movie everThe Disaster Artist's James Franco on taking us behind the camera on the biggest cult movie everIngrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine11/29/2017 10:34:00 Am

James Franco likes to make films, lots and lots of films.

The writer/actor/director had 18 films and TV shows in production or scheduled for release just this year — it’s taken George Clooney 10 years to make that many. However, many of Franco’s projects are indie pics that either get limited releases or sit on shelves waiting for distribution.

But he’s too good an actor and too interesting a director to have his work relegated to Hollywood’s bargain bin. Franco was looking for a breakout hit, and the delicious irony is that he’s directed the best movie of his career about the worst movie ever made.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere Recap: Harm Offensive

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere Recap: Harm Offensive
Warning: The following contains spoilers for the Season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead. If you’ve yet to watch, pretend Negan’s about to take a swing and look away.

The Season 8 premiere (and 100th episode) of The Walking Dead was filled with inspiring fighting words about how the world belonged to Rick and our heroes, the allied forces were going to live in peace and harmony, they’d all be together forever, yadda, yadda, yadda. But the all-cried-out look in Rick’s red-rimmed eyes, seen in (I think) flash-forwards, served as a stark reminder that turning all that talk
