Meet The Cast & Characters Of ‘Sherlock Gnomes’ – In UK Cinemas Friday

Family adventure Sherlock Gnomes hits cinemas this week, showcasing a star-studded voice cast from the world of film and television. Several big names return from 2011’s Gnomeo & Juliet, as well as some exciting fresh faces…

Outside of children’s films, Depp’s broad filmography includes classics such as What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Edward Scissorhands and Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

The Emoji Movie: The Aftermath

  • CineMovie
2017 has seen one more film added to the list of perplexing creations. Based on the cultural phenomenon formed by a humble social app, The Emoji Movie had great potential, if handled with original vision and wit. The plot is set in the city of Textopolis, where Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, heads out to become as normal as other emojis and their single expressions. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm that went into its development, such as casting award-winners James Corden (Into the Woods, 2014) and Ilana Glazer (Broad City, 2014-2018), as well as T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley, 2014-2017) and Anna Faris (I Give It a Year, 2013), was not enough to impress its more demanding audiences. Critics on Rotten Tomatoes pointed out, among other things, a weakness in taste, plot and purpose, apart from it being little more than a promotional tool. Even though the $179,535,817 global box office likely soothed Sony Pictures Animation’s wounded pride,

Office Christmas Party movie review: messtivities

MaryAnn’s quick take… Hangover lite, with even more tepid notions of what constitutes debauchery, plus a true dedication to strained contrivance. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of grossout comedies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

You know those really dumb comedies where the only actually funny bits are the outtakes that run over the end credits, where everyone is finally on their game and the humor comes loose and fast and unconstructed, and you think, “Gee, why isn’t the whole movie like that?”? This is not the case with Office Christmas Party. Ocp — not to be confused with the evil robotics corporation in Robocop, which is more fun on a Friday after-work drinks thing than this movie — is, if I recall correctly, the first instance of end-credits clips that are as precisely forced and flat as

The Wolverine 3 Adds The Office Co-Creator Stephen Merchant

Last night we found out that British stage and screen legend Richard E. Grant had joined the cast of James Mangold’s follow up to The Wolverine as a “villainous mad scientist type.” Now, Deadline is reporting that none other than Stephen Merchant will be joining him – though this time we know even less about his character.

In fact, we know literally nothing. The trade doesn’t even mention if it’ll be a main or supporting role, but there’s already some speculation that he might be mutant shape-shifter, Morph. Yeah, we know….that’s not very likely.

Merchant is best known for his sitcom work with writing partner Ricky Gervais, but he has also had quite a few acting gigs, including roles in the likes of Hall Pass, Hot Fuzz and I Give It A year.

The Office Actor/Co-Creator Stephen Merchant Joins The Cast Of The Wolverine 3

They seem to be lining up a bunch of lanky Brits for Logan to hack through in The Wolverine 3. Last night we found out that Richard E. Grant would play a "villainous mad scientist type" in James Mangold's movie, and now Deadline reports that Stephen Merchant (Hall Pass, Hot Fuzz, I Give It A year) will join him - though we know even less about the character he'll be playing. And by less, we mean fuck all. There are no details provided whatsoever, and because we can't nail down any specific comic arcs they're drawing from, speculating about who it could be is difficult, too. Also starring are Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook and, of course, Hugh Jackman. The Wolverine 3 is to hit theaters on May 3, 2017.

Rose Byrne: "Guys Still Get Better Roles"

Rose Byrne would rather play the guy characters in the majority of scripts she reads.

The Australian funnywoman, 36, started her career as a serious actress, but when Hollywood started placing her in films like Bridesmaids and I Give It a Year, Rose carved a name for herself in comedy.

She’ll soon be back as Kelly Radner in Bad Neighbours 2, reuniting with Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and director Nicholas Stoller.

“Seth and Nick are really championing getting rid of those stereotypes,” Rose told New York Magazine of the roles on offer for women. “Most things I read, I still would much rather play the guy. There have been some changes, but I wish there was more.”

In 2014’s Bad Neighbours Rose made sure she didn’t play the nagging wife life first indented, and Seth even offered to trade his lines with her when she was unhappy. But together

‘Dirty Grandpa’ Review

Stars: Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch, Aubrey Plaza, Jason Mantzoukas, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Hough, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Brandon Mychal Smith, Adam Pally | Written by John Phillips | Directed by Dan Mazer

Sacha Baron Cohen cohort Dan Mazer – who produced Cohen’s movies Bruno, Borat and The Dictator – follows up his feature debut, I Give It A Year, with a Cohen-style gross-out comedy starring the legend that is Robert De Niro. This time round De Niro, in another of his comedic roles (his last The Intern was superb Fyi), he appears alongside the smouldering sex-bomb that is Zac Efron. And both of them get topless. Which should be all most of this films target audience will need to know really. But I digress.

Dirty Grandpa sees preppy Jason (Efron), just days away from getting married to his equally uptight fiancée, tasked with taking his grandpa, Dick, to Florida for Spring Break

Dirty Grandpa, starring Robert De Niro & Zac Efron, started life as a Black List script. Er, it's not ended its life as a Black List script

Wow, who knew that the much maligned trailer for Dirty Grandpa might just turn out to be the very best of the year? Trailers can hide what a film really is, or mislead you about what to expect, but functionally, they're meant to briefly encapsulate the movie they're advertising, and rarely has a film's corpulence been so perfectly distilled, with such repellent efficiency, as this.

In case you missed the trailer and might otherwise wander into a cinema with any other expectations, the title character is Dick Kelly (Robert De Niro), a septugenarian whose wife has recently passed after a long battle with cancer. He's not on good terms with his son (Dermot Mulroney), but his buttoned-down grandson Jason (Zac Efron

Dirty Grandpa review: “Repulsive, offensive and terrible”

Dirty Grandpa review: Meet the most offensive, repulsive, most unlikable, disgusting film of the year so far.

Zac Efron and Robert De Niro lead this new R-Rated comedy from Dan Mazar, the talented writer and producer behind Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat movie, and the director of British comedy I Give It A Year. Mazar takes on his biggest project yet with Dirty Grandpa, a film that heavily relies on constant gross-out humour and multiple mutterings of the word shit, rather than wit.

Efron plays Jason, a successful lawyer who has just bagged a high-profile job at the law firm that his father works for. Unfortunately, there’s been a death in the family, and everyone has united to mourn the loss of Jason’s grandmother, including his grandpa, Dick (played by De Niro). At the wake, it becomes known that Dick has to travel to Florida the following day,
