Sure, he lent some gravitas to a stretch of Godzilla over the summer, but Bryan Cranston hasn't tackled a leading role since wrapping up his remarkable run on AMC's Breaking Bad.
With Trumbo, though, Cranston has one hell of a starring role that he really ought to sink his teeth into, playing real-life screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.
The first image of Cranston in character as Trumbo shows off his outstanding mustache and his command of a cigarette holder in a performance that's likely to earn the erstwhile Walter White even more accolades.
Clean up your nether-regions and get ready to enter the red room of pain.
According to the latest poster for Fifty Shades of Grey, "Mr. Grey will see you now."
The first trailer for Insurgent is a trip.
No, really, the teaser promoting this spring's Divergent sequel is all a trip playing out in Shailene Woodley's head.
If you've got thirty seconds, the first TV spot for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has a whole lot of CGI combat to fill your half-minute.
The title character in Mortdecai is either a hyper-capable but eccentric genius or a shambling imbecile who happens to get results.
Either way, the full theatrical trailer shows how much fun Johnny Depp is having as Charlie Mortdecai.
This Friday, Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas ride again, but apparently Dumb and Dumber To isn't a sequel.
"When you wait twenty years, a sequel becomes a she-quel,” Jim Carrey revealed at the Los Angeles press day for the long-awaited follow-up to Dumb and Dumber.
"It is a word. Look it up," agreed Jeff Daniels, who plays dumber than ever before in the "she-quel."
"If you work in advertising, I think I just coined a huge phrase," joked Carrey. "It is going to change everything for everyone."
However you classify it, Dumb and Dumber To revisits the imbeciles who captured America's heart in 1994, when the two Rhode Island idiots traveled across the county to deliver a missing piece of luggage. In the new movie, which opens nationwide on November 14th, Harry and Lloyd once again set out on an improbable odyssey, this time searching for Harry's long-lost daughter, who may hold the key to her father's survival, as well as Lloyd's affections.
IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick was on hand for the Dumb and Dumber To LA press conference, where both Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey cracked wise, happily discussing the sequel's origins, returning to these beloved roles, working with Kathleen Turner, reuniting with directorial duo Peter and Bobby Farrelly, and possible future "she-quels."
If it's actually true, a new rumor illustrates just how hard Sony Pictures is flailing to figure out the future of Spider-Man onscreen.
According to this rumor, the studio is whipping up perhaps the least in-demand spinoff possible: a prequel following Peter Parker's legal guardian, Aunt May, in an espionage adventure decades ago.
Forget ruling Latveria with an iron fist.
In the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, the villainous Victor Von Doom spends his time doing a far dirtier deed: blogging.
Actually, he's not Victor Von Doom this time. Toby Kebbell has spilled some beans regarding his character in Josh Trank's new take on Marvel's First Family, including the legendary bad guy's new name, occupation, and "anti-social" tendencies.
Screenwriter David Hayter has helped write some of the greatest super hero movies ever made!
Hayter actually began his career as an actor and was the voice of Captain America on the Spider-Man animated series in the ‘90s. After transitioning into a career as a screenwriter, Hayter wrote Bryan Singer’s X-Men. He went on to co-write X-Men 2, as well as co-writing Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. He was also at one point set to write and direct a film based on the Marvel character Black Widow for Lionsgate, before Marvel Studios retrieved the rights to the character. Hayter finally makes his directorial debut with his new film Wolves, which he also wrote and opens in theaters on November 14th.
Wolves follows Cayden Richards (X-Men: First Class’ Lucas Till), who is forced to hit the road after the murder of his parents. Cayden wanders lost without purpose until he meets a certifiable lunatic named Wild Joe (John Pyper-Ferguson). Joe sets Cayden on a path to the ominous town of Lupine Ridge, to hunt down the truths of his history. But in the end, who's really hunting whom? In addition to Till and Pyper-Ferguson, the film also stars Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian), Kaitlyn Leeb (Total Recall), Merritt Patterson (The Hole), and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen).
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with writer and director David Hayter about his work on Wolves. The accomplished screenwriter discussed his new movie, how he got involved with the project, making his directorial debut, his favorite werewolf movies, what he learned about directing from the filmmakers he’s collaborated with on past projects, casting Lucas Till, the current status of his Black Widow movie and why Watchmen is a masterpiece.
Twenty-five years later, Bruce Campbell is dusting off his chainsaw to play Ash in an Evil Dead/Army of Darkness sequel.
Campbell and director Sam Raimi are returning for another round of spook-a-blast action, but this time, Ash is schooling primitive screwheads on television rather than the big screen.
Cable network Starz has given a greenlight to Ash Vs. Evil Dead, with Raimi directing the first of ten episodes at thirty minutes apiece.
