A new still from this August's Paranoia shows Liam Hemsworth looking very relaxed. But rest assured, the film isn't all poolside recreation.
In fact, Paranoia is a taut, white-knuckle corporate espionage thriller in which Hemsworth's character finds himself in a high stakes game between two captains of industry, played by living movie legends Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman.
When the Wolfpack returns to theaters for the third and final time on May 23rd with The Hangover Part III, they will get a chance to reunite with several characters not seen since the original film. One of those characters is actress Heather Graham’s stripper turned housewife Jade, as well as her baby (now toddler) Tyler – A.K.A. Carlos.
After being sidelined for The Hangover Part II, Graham returns to help the Wolfpack on their journey one more time in The Hangover Part III, which is being advertised as the conclusion to the epic series that has become the most successful comedy franchise of all time. Graham, who began he career as a teenager, has been appearing in films for almost 25-years and first gained attention for her role in the comedy License to Drive opposite Corey Feldman and the late Corey Haim. She would go on to appear in such films as Drugstore Cowboy, the Twin Peaks prequel – Fire Walk with Me, Six Degrees of Separation, and Swingers, before landing her breakout role as Rollergirl in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights. But it was playing Felicity Shagwell in the sequel Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me that made Graham a household name. Since then the actress has appeared a string of successful films including Bowfinger, Anger Management, From Hell, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer, and of course – The Hangover.
In The Hangover Part III, once again directed by Todd Philips, the Wolfpack comes to the aid of one of their own in the wake of a family tragedy when a personal crisis causes his friends and family to intervene in Alan’s (Zach Galifanakis) life. Doug (Justin Bartha), Phil (Bradley Cooper), and Stu (Ed Helms) agree to take Alan to a wellness home for help but the road trip goes terribly wrong when a ghost from their past causes Doug to be kidnapped … and that ghost is named Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong)! Now, Phil, Stu, and Alan have to go on a manhunt to find the notorious Mr. Chow, who has just broken out of a Bangkok prison, in order to save Doug’s life. When the Wolfpack’s journey leads them back the where it all began … Las Vegas, they seek the help of Stu’s ex-wife, Jade, who is now remarried and no longer a stripper. Jade gives the boys important information that helps them track down Chow, and Alan has a chance to reconnect with Tyler (formally-Carlos), who has grown quite a bit since the last time he saw him. Throughout the course of the film, the three friends become closer than ever and Alan learns a lesson about life, love, friendship, and the meaning of true happiness.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with the beautiful Heather Graham about The Hangover Part III while she was in Las Vegas (of course) promoting the film. The accomplished actress discussed the new movie, reuniting with the cast and crew for the final chapter, how Jade has changed since the first film, her complicated history with Stu, working with the same child actor that player Tyler/Carlos in the original movie, what Helms, Cooper, and Galifanakis are like off the set, collaborating with director Todd Philips, improvisation, if jade is actually an honorary member of the Wolfpack, not returning for The Hangover Part II, and what comedic legend is secretly a huge fan of The Hangover franchise.
Whoa. Either 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios are plotting an unprecedented franchise crossover or, more likely, Fox is beating Marvel and Disney to the punch by using Quicksilver in next summer's X-Men adventure.
Evan Peters has been added to the ensemble cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past as the Marvel universe's most prominent superfast mutant, who is also intended to be a part of The Avengers 2.
A new clip from next month's Monsters University shows that having your first roommate in college can be difficult. Particularly when the inhabitant of the bunk above your sheds pounds of blue fur every night.
Having kicked off Phase Two with Iron Man 3, Marvel Studios continues the superheroics this November 8th with Thor: The Dark World.
The one and only Ray Stevenson, who reprises his role as Volstagg, is talking up the latest Marvel sequel, promising that The Dark World finds Asgard going to full-blown cosmic war, raising the stakes for the eponymous deity and his fellow superbeings.
The latest trailer for Ron Howard's Rush lives up the film's title, zipping by in a speedy and stylish montage of extremely fast cars and equally fast living.
Like a time traveler futzing with the timeline for monetary gain, Universal Pictures is doubling back to 1994's Timecop for a remake.
The first trailer for Don Jon has strutted its way online, and this first look indicates that not only is Joseph Gordon-Levitt a charismatic and talented actor, apparently he's also a damn sharp writer and director.
If you didn't know that World War Z is about a zombie pandemic, two new thirty-second TV spots for the adaptation might not clue you in.
There are several now familiar shots of digital undead hordes unstoppably piling on top of one another like fire ants, but that makes these zombies more of a blurry pileup. Given the current pop cultural saturation of skull-scrapers and the Z in the title, you could probably guess what's going on, but both spots are more focused on Brad Pitt, his onscreen family, and the civilization-crumbling effect of all those zombies.
The U.S. trailer for The World's End has whirled its way online, and our best look at the conclusion to the Cornetto Trilogy so far is more fun than a dozen pints.
