J.C. Chandor, who raced from Margin Call to All Is Lost to A Most Violent Year, has left the director’s chair of the upcoming film Deepwater Horizon. The reason? Our old friend “creative differences,” at least as far as the official knowledge base goes. Now, coming in to replace him, is Peter Berg, whose most recent film was Lone Survivor. The link to the new Deepwater Horizon director may be Mark Wahlberg, who is set to star in the film, and was also the lead in Lone Survivor. Read More »
Many people today don’t realize it, but much of modern comedy was born at the National Lampoon. John Hughes, Al Jean, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, John Landis, Ivan Reitman and John Belushi are just some of the famous names who got their start through something related to the once-popular humor magazine, created in 1970.
Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon, directed by Douglas Tirola, tells the complete history of this incredible brand. Simultaneously, the film documents much of the humor we love today: Saturday Night Live, The Simpsons, and more. Below, read the rest of our Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead review. Read More »
When it comes to superhero movies, fans are sticklers. They don’t want the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films to link to the Tobey Maguire films. That wouldn’t make sense. They get angry when a studio casts the Human Torch as Captain America. How can one actor be both? The lone exception in all of this might be J. Jonah Jameson, played by J.K. Simmons. There’s no other character and actor pair that fans are not only willing to accept crossing film “universes” — they demand it.
The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb got around this by not including the character in his films at all, but in a new interview, Simmons said he’s heard Spider-Man might be coming back. And he’d love to return, too. Read and listen to the J.K. Simmons Spider Man quotes below. Read More »
