Ted 2 is bringing back the titular teddy bear and Mark Wahlberg as his best buddy.
They're both present and accounted for in the very first picture from Seth MacFarlane's comedy sequel.
Wes Bentley is one of the few actors that can successfully balance a career in both independent and studio films.
Bentley first gained attention for his breakout role in the Academy Award-winning film American Beauty, and has since gone on to appear in such big budget studio movies as Ghost Rider, Jonah Hex, The Hunger Games, and most recently Interstellar. But the actor has also starred in a number of independent films including There Be Dragons, The Time Being, Cesar Chavez, The Better Angels, and the upcoming Night of Cups, which was directed by Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, Badlands). His latest film is After The Fall, which opens in New York theaters and on VOD December 12th before opening in Los Angeles theaters on December 20th.
After The Fall was co-written and directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated editor turned first time director Saar Klein (Almost Famous, The Thin Red Line). The film revolves around a suburban father and husband named Bill Scanlon (Bentley) that due to economic difficulties embraces a life of crime in order to support his family. While Bill begins an unusual friendship with troubled police officer Frank McTiernan (Jason Isaacs), his wife Susan (Vinessa Shaw) discovers his secret and becomes determined to do anything to save her family and their lifestyle.
I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Wes Bentley about After The Fall, Interstellar, and Knight of Cups. The accomplished actor discussed After The Fall, his reaction to its unusual poster, why he liked the script’s economic themes, Jason Isaacs, Bill and Frank’s odd friendship, Susan’s true motivations, Saar Klein’s advantage as a first time director, Interstellar, watching Christopher Nolan direct, Knight of Cups, who has scenes with in the film, working with Terrence Malick, and balancing independent and studio movies.
In the very first clip from Ex Machina, Oscar Isaac immediately brings up the Turing Test.
You know, the artificial intelligence test named for the guy in The Imitation Game?
Isaac brings it up because his co-star, Domhnall Gleeson, is the human component in an elaborate A.I. test. What Gleeson doesn't know, however, is that the game goes far deeper than he thought, and the robot with whom he's going toe to digi-toe is a sexy 'bot with some tricks up her metallic sleeve.
After a few consecutive all-ages event movies, Guillermo del Toro is making a gothic horror story for grown-ups more in line with Pan's Labyrinth and The Devil's Backbone.
The first official image from Crimson Peak is hauntingly beautiful, featuring two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastian in what looks like a very haunted house.
If a new trailer for American Sniper doesn't get across the horrors of modern warfare, then hopefully two official clips will do it.
No fewer than six – six! – Kingsman: The Secret Service promotional featurettes are here to introduce you to the cast of characters in Matthew Vaughn's wild, energetic riff on old school spy movies.
Opening in theaters on December 19th is Annie, which is a reboot of the beloved musical and ‘1980s movie.
The new film is an updated version of the classic story and was directed by Will Gluck (Friends with Benefits, Easy A). The plot revolves around Annie (Academy Award-nominee Quvenzhane Wallis), a foster kid living with a mean foster parent named Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). She soon sees her life change when business tycoon and New York mayoral candidate William Stacks (Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx) takes her in. The movie was produced by musician Jay-Z and superstar actor Will Smith (I, Robot), and also stars Rose Byrne (X-Men: First Class), Bobby Cannavale (Chef), and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Pompeii).
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Will Gluck about his work on Annie. The accomplished director discussed his new film, how he got involved with the project, his concept for the reboot, the out-of-the-box casting of Quvenzhane Wallis, if he was surprised by the media reaction to that choice, Jamie Foxx’s influence on the music in the movie, drawing inspiration from the musical as well as the ‘80s film, and breaking the forth wall.
The last shot of the Jurassic World teaser trailer really riled some folks.
They hated that Chris Pratt appears to have raptor buddies riding shotgun as he blasted around Isla Nublar on a boss hog. "Foul!" these Jurassic Park fans cried, "Velocipators do not pal around with humans! Raptors eat humans!"
Those folks aren't going to dig a promotional picture in which Pratt and a velociraptor make like Turner and Hooch.
They say any publicity is good publicity. But about when bad publicity leads to your movie getting shut out of the multiplex?
The five biggest theaters chains in America are dropping Seth Rogen's The Interview in response to anonymous threats of violence against moviegoers.
So the release of The Interview, in which James Franco and co-director Rogen star as an imbecilic TV personality and producer recruited to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, is kaput. Sony just made it official, announcing that it has scrapped the film's December release.
