For a particular generation, Dean Cain will always be Superman!
The actor, who also appeared in such films as Rat Race, Out of Time, 5 Days of War, and God’s Not Dead, is best known for playing the man of steel in the ‘90s series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. But Cain has also appeared in a surprising amount of Christmas movies (The Case for Christmas, A Christmas Wedding, Defending Santa), as well as films featuring talking dogs (Aussie and Ted’s Great Adventure, The Dog Who Saved Halloween). Now Cain combines the two genres with his latest movie The Three Dogateers, which will be available on DVD and digital download beginning November 18th.
The Three Dogateers follows three little dogs that are left on their own a few days before Christmas. A couple of no-good burglars have made off with all of the family's presents and decorations, and it's time for the Three Dogateers to unite and set off on a journey to sniff out the bad guys. But with the world's meanest dogcatcher hot on their tails, they may need a little help from Santa Claus (Richard Riehie) himself to save Christmas! It’s basically the canine version of Home Alone. Cain plays Matt, the husband of the dog’s owner who needs to find his wife’s pets before she returns for the holidays.
I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Dean Cain about his work on The Three Dogateers, as well as being part of the Superman legacy. The talented veteran actor discussed his new film, talking dog movies, the challenges of acting with animals, how to make a classic Christmas film, performing broad comedy, why he feels honored to have played Superman, DC’s new “no jokes” policy for their upcoming movies, and why Superman shouldn’t kill!
In a classic Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" episode, Homer wonder aloud, "Kill my boss? Do I dare live out the American dream?"
Three years ago, a trio of cinematic imbeciles attempted to live the dream, and though nothing went according to plan, the bumbling heroes of Horrible Bosses emerged better off.
In this Wednesday's Horrible Bosses 2, Nick, Dale, and Kurt are once again trying to live out a transgressive dream, this time through kidnapping.
No longer subject to their nightmarish employers, they now work for themselves, sinking their savings into the Shower Buddy, a hygienic accessory. When an investor bilks them out of their business, however, they dip their toes back into the waters of criminality, kidnapping the villain's grown-up son for a hefty ransom.
Jason Bateman (Bad Words), Charlie Day (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), and Jason Sudeikis (We're the Millers) all return in Horrible Bosses 2. This time, they're squaring off against Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) as Bert Hanson, the slimy investor. Don't worry, Jennifer Aniston (Life of Crime) is also back as the insatiable Dr. Julia Harris, DDS.
IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick was on hand for the Horrible Bosses 2 press day in Los Angeles, where the stars enthusiastically discussed the comedy sequel during a press conference.
For a few years, the most interesting thing about the Blade Runner sequel was that Ridley Scott planned on directing.
Well, Scott's opted against hunting for Replicants and existential answers a second time.
According to the prolific 76-year-old, Blade Runner 2 is likely to start shooting within the next year, but he won't be in the director's chair, deciding instead to produce the follow-up to his 1982 scifi classic.
You turn your head for one minute and suddenly it's awards season all over.
The longest season of the year is in full swing once again: Film Independent announced the full list of nominees for the 30th Annual Independent Spirit Awards.
Birdman or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance leads the pack with six nominations total, including nods for Best Feature, Best Director (Alejando Gonzalez Inarritu), Best Male Lead (Michael Keaton), Best Supporting Female (Emma Stone), and Best Supporting Male (Edward Norton). And, of course, the clever one-take illusion snagged Birdman a Best Cinematography (Emmanual Lubezki) nomination, too.
The first teaser trailer for Pan makes it clear that Joe Wright's Peter Pan prequel isn't a whisper.
Instead, it's a full-throated shout, a barbaric yawp of riotous color, fantasy visuals, CGI setpieces, and origin story chicanery.
Warner Bros. unveiled the trailer for next summer's would-be blockbuster, along with a battery of character posters featuring Garrett Hedlund as Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard.
Prepare to ride shotgun in the Bubblecar.
The full trailer for Jurassic World reveals that the sweetest ride on Isla Nublar is actually called the Gyrosphere. The trailer shows off some healthy competition with a motorcycle, though, a boss hog the rider of which gets company from the scariest dinosaurs on the island.
Vehicular coolness aside, Universal Pictures unveiled the Jurassic World trailer early today, jumping the gun on a planned Thanksgiving debut.
And we're thankful for the early premiere, because this trailer is a humdinger.
It took a while, but the day has finally come when a woman directs a major superhero movie.
Michelle MacLaren has signed on to direct Wonder Woman, the first solo live action movie for the most famous superheroine in the history of comics.
Finally available on DVD beginning November 7th is Reno 911!: The Complete Series, which has become one of the most popular shows in Comedy Central history.
Viva Variety and The State alumni Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, the duo that also wrote Night at the Museum and directed Hell Baby, created the popular comedy series. Originally conceived as a satire of Cops, Reno 911! ran for six seasons on Comedy Central from 2003-2009 and also spawned the popular film Reno 911!: Miami. In addition to starring Lennon as Lieutenant James “Jim” Ronald Dangle, and Garant as Deputy Travis Junior, the series also featured Kerri Kenney-Silver (All About Steve) as Deputy Trudy Wiegel, Cedric Yarbrough (Get Smart) as Deputy Sergeant Class II Sven Jones, Carlos Alazraqui (Justice League: Doom) as Deputy Sergeant Class III James Oswaldo Garcia, Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) as Deputy Sergeant Class I Clementine “Clemmy” Johnson, Niecy Nash (The Proposal) as Deputy Raineesha Williams, Mary Birdsong (The Descendants) as Deputy Cherisha Kimball, Ian Roberts (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) as Sergeant Jack Declan, and Joe Lo Truglio (Superbad) as Deputy Frank Salvatore Rizzo.
I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with the hilarious Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant about Reno 911!: The Complete Series DVD and the future of the franchise. The two actors/series creators discussed their new DVD set, the origins of the series, developing the characters, the success of the show, DVD extras, and possibly returning for a Reno 911! Comedy Central Christmas special.
