Jon Favreau‘s small, personal film Chef opens in New York and Los Angeles this weekend. It’s really good but not for the reasons you’d think. Yes, there is a lot of cooking and delicious-looking food, which is always fun to watch. However, what makes Favreau’s film really tasty is that it’s more about a father’s relationship with his son, the way social media has changed our lives and the complicated relationship between critics and their subjects.
It also happens to co-star Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt and Scarlett Johansson. Which is never bad.
A clip from the film has now come online and, in 90 seconds, perfectly encompasses everything that makes the film so good. Watch the new Chef movie clip below. Read More »

The Wachowski Siblings will be among the fans of this latest clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In it, Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) have a Times Square showdown. However, when Electro finally unleashes his powers on Spider-Man, we see Marc Webb‘s version of bullet-time. It’s a slow motion, spinning, digital tracking shot meant to duplicate Spider-Sense. In this case, it also tracks the devastating power of Electro’s electricity. More so than almost any of the previous sizzle reels, trailers or commercials, this one-minute clip should get you excited for the epic potential of the May 2 release. Check out this new Amazing Spider Man 2 clip below. Read More »
Louis CK is known for telling the truth. Even if it’s painful or offensive, Louis CK will tell people how it is. Now, a recently discovered interview shoves that idea in his face thanks to CK’s American Hustle nemesis, Bradley Cooper.
To explain, in an old interview CK did with fellow comedian, writer and actor Stephen Merchant, he joked about the fact every single actor who asks a question on Inside the Actor’s Studio will never be famous. That sounds like a pretty safe assumption, if only because of the millions of people who want to be actors, only a small handful actually reach recognizable status. But, it’s not 100% true; one young actor who asked a question on Inside the Actor’s Studio did become famous. A young man named Bradley Cooper.

Earlier this week, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham appeared on The Tonight Show where she and Jimmy Fallon discussed the fact that they both used to work at video rental stores in New York. Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon have a fun discussion about video rental store clerks and also a long discussion about their love for the 1991 coming-of-age “classic” Man in the Moon starring Reese Witherspoon and is it Jeremy or Jason London (its actually Jason). While I don’t have fond memories for this movie, I appreciate the film fandom Fallon and Dunham show in this geekfest. Watch the video clip new embedded after the jump.

Lando himself, Billy Dee Williams, put the “Star” in Dancing With the Stars Monday night, kicking off the 18th (?!?!) season of the ABC show with a Star Wars inspired dance featuring Stormtroopers, R2-D2 and more. He and partner Emma Slater did a Cha-Cha to John Williams‘ famous theme hoping to play on the audience’s nostalgia. It had mixed results.
Of note, ABC is owned by Disney which now owns Lucasfilm so, this is just corporate synergy its most embarrassing. Still, there is something to take out of this. Check out the video and read more below. Read More »

It’s March and even if you aren’t a sports fan, it’s hard not to get caught up in March Madness. The excitement of filling out a college basketball bracket can only be topped if the bracket was something a little more geeky. Like Star Wars characters, for example.
StarWars.com is hosting a “This is Madness” tournament allowing fans to vote on their favorite characters in a single elimination bracket. In 2013, they did the same thing and Yoda beat Darth Vader in the finals. So, to help promote the contest, Yoda appeared on a version of ESPN’s SportsNation with Max Kellerman to discuss the tournament. It’s super cheesy, but a nice surprise for Star Wars fans.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 might be filled with villains, but the most important one is Electro. It may not feel like that in some of the more recent trailers but the first full Amazing Spider-Man 2 clip makes it pretty clear. Set in the middle of Times Square, this quick, minute long scene features Spider-Man’s (Andrew Garfield) first encounter with a fully-operational Electro, played by Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx. We’ve seen snippets from this scene before, but not the whole thing in sequence. Check it out below. Read More »
The True Detective finale airs this weekend and fans everywhere are on pins and needles waiting to see where creator Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Joji Fukunaga will take us in the last hour.
