The Interview Skylark Tonight MTV Special Nicki Minaj

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s already controversial film, The Interview, was recently pushed back a few months but we’ll get a nice tease this weekend. Tied into the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, stars of the film James Franco and Rogen will do a full 30 minute special, in character, interviewing popular musicians Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Jason Derulo.

In the film, Franco plays Dave Skylark, the host of a popular entertainment interview show run by producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen). They’re then granted an exclusive interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, and are asked to kill him. There will be no killing on the MTV special, which airs Sunday August 17 at 9 p.m., but you’ll get a sense of the film’s tone and humor. Below, read more info, see more photos and even watch a quick video of The Interview MTV Special. Read More »

Interview face melting

When North Korea started to kick up a fuss about The Interview — the film in which Seth Rogen and James Franco play TV news guys who are recruited to assassinate Kim Jong Un during an interview opportunity — Sony seemed to shrug. But as the country remains furious about the comedy, calling its release essentially an act of “sponsoring terrorism,” it looks like Sony is having second thoughts. Some digital changes are being made to The Interview. One change is relatively small, but there’s also a report of one graphic scene, which could have been one of the film’s big attention-getting moments, being tossed entirely. (A spoiler warning might be in order for details of that scene.) Read More »

Veronica Mars web series

The whole Neptune gang is reuniting, but it’s not for a sequel per se. Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Ryan Hansen, and more are set to star in Play It Again, Dick, a Veronica Mars spinoff about a Veronica Mars spinoff.

In keeping with the meta angle of the web series, the actors will be playing both themselves and their Veronica Mars characters. As creator Rob Thomas puts it, it’s the cast of Veronica Mars meets the “L.A. ‘reality’” of Party Down. Hit the jump for all the details.

Mortdecai trailer

To put it mildly, Johnny Depp is not exactly at a high point in his career. He hasn’t had a solid hit since the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and his last three starring roles were outright flops. But on the bright side, he’ll have plenty of opportunities to redeem himself in the near future.

One of those chances arrives next February in the form of a goofy comedy. Depp plays the title character in Mortdecai, a roguish art dealer racing to recover a stolen painting that could lead to Nazi gold. The first Mortdecai trailer has just been released, and you can watch it after the jump.
