Jennifer Lawrence Jeff Bridges

Press junket interviews are usually so stale. You have so little time to talk to these celebrities, it’s near impossible to get a good, interesting, in-depth answer to a decent question. That’s why interviews where something awkward or different happens tend to go viral.

Two such interviews just popped online. One features Jennifer Lawrence totally geeking out on a press line when she catches a glimpse of Jeff Bridges. The other is Bruce Willis being brutally honest, and totally uncomfortable, with a very upbeat reporter. Check them both out below. Read More »

A Good Day to Die Hard header image

The fifth Die Hard film, A Good Day To Die Hard, got terrible reviews and was a medium-sized success in the United States. It seemed like American audiences didn’t really care about the Russian exploits of John McClane (Bruce Willis) his son, played by Jai Courtney. Or it was just a bad movie. Either way, that was not the case everywhere else in the world. The film was a success overseas, grossing almost $250 million internationally and pushing 20th Century Fox to move ahead with another installment.

We now have some news on the next installment of the Die Hard franchise. Its working title is Die Hardest and the current idea takes place primarily in Tokyo. The first script is being written by British writer Ben Trebilcook, who admitted Bruce Willis and other members of the team have yet to sign off, so all of this might go away. Read more below.

Update: Screen Crush reports that this is untrue through various sources within Fox; one says “there is no truth to this whatsoever.”

Red 2 header

Bruce Willis‘ year of action sequels continues this summer with Red 2, which reunites him with stars John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Mary Louise Parker while bringing on some fresher blood in the form of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung-hun, David Thewlis, and Anthony Hopkins.

If you’ve seen the first one, you know basically what to expect — lots of old people running around shooting people and exploding things. But to get more specific, the plot this time centers on the gang’s attempt to track down a missing nuclear bomb while Frank (Willis) is being chased by an elite assassin (Lee). They try to enlist the help of a scientist (Hopkins) locked up in an institution for the criminally insane. A new trailer has just dropped, and you can watch it after the jump.
