The Night Before

It was a balmy September afternoon when I left my house to visit the Queens, New York set of Jonathan Levine‘s The Night Before, on the second to last day of a 35-day shoot. But when I got there, I was greeted with a scene that looked like Christmas on steroids, replete with colorful lights, harried shoppers, and of course, ugly sweaters.

Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie were prancing around a fake Manhattan toy store (don’t call it FAO Schwarz), performing Kanye West’s “Runaway” on an enormous Big-style keyboard. If you’ve seen the trailer for the film, you’re likely familiar with the scene, which has already “instant classic” written all over it.

In between takes, Levine, his cast, and more clued us in on their R-rated entry into the Christmas movie canon. Get the full report from our The Night Before set visit after the jump.  Read More »

Victor Frankenstein trailer

20th Century Fox has dropped the first trailer for Victor Frankenstein, starring James McAvoy as the mad doctor and Daniel Radcliffe as his faithful (and so far non-hunchbacked) protege Igor.

If you’ve seen really any version of the Mary Shelley classic, you know how it goes: Frankenstein engages in some crazy science and creates a literal monster, with predictably disastrous results. What’s different this time is a playful buddy comedy dynamic between Frankenstein and Igor, a la Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies. Watch the Victor Frankenstein trailer after the jump.
