iron man villain

Iron Man kicked off Marvel’s current period of blockbuster movie domination, and it couldn’t have been done without the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr.‘s reformed genius superhero Tony Stark and his mentor-turned-foe Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges).

Though the third act of the film arguably leaves much to be desired, it’s hard to imagine Iron Man without Bridges. It’s common knowledge that the Mandarin was in an early draft of the first Iron Man before being scrapped and brought back for Iron Man 3. But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that Obadiah Stane and Mandarin shared Big Bad duties in early scripts, before the decision was made to strengthen Bridges’ role.

Only the Brave Trailer

Right now, wildfires are tearing through the Western half of the United States, torching hundreds of thousands of acres of land in Montana, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California and Utah. There have been more than 24,000 firefighters battling 137 blazes. These men and women are the best of the best, and the story of some of them from Arizona will be told on the big screen this fall.

Only the Brave will tell the story of the Granite Mountain Hot Shots, the team that took on a wildfire in Yarnell, Arizona that would go on to become the deadliest U.S. wildfire since the 1991 East Bay Hills fire, and the deadliest incident of any kind for United States firefighters since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. A new Only the Brave trailer shows how Josh Brolin, James Badge Dale, Jeff Bridges and Miles Teller face that fire in what appears to be a no-win scenario. Read More »

The Only Living Boy in New York trailer

After spending around five years or so of his life making The Amazing Spider-Man movies, director Marc Webb returned to movies much smaller in scale. Webb’s first post-Spidey gig, Gifted, was well liked and struck a chord with audiences, making $24 million at the box-office. His next drama, The Only Living Boy in New York, doesn’t look as accessible, based on a trailer that’s maybe a tad overstuffed.

It is the next feature from the director of (500) Days of Summer, though, and it does star Jeff BridgesPierce Brosnan, Cynthia Nixon, and Kate Beckinsale, so the Only Living Boy in New York trailer isn’t without some promise.

kingsman the golden circle first look

Kingsman: The Secret Service wasn’t just a surprise box office smash – it was one of the most pleasantly surprising wide releases of 2015. Matthew Vaughn‘s gory spy riff, which pushed the language of James Bond movies into giddy, R-rated heights, was a ton of audacious, gnarly fun. However, this also means that the sequel won’t benefit from the element of surprise. Expectations have been raised!

But it seems to have come prepared, with new cast members in Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, and Jeff Bridges, each of whom has been revealed in the Kingsman: The Golden Circle first look.

John Goodman Walk of Fame Ceremony - The Big Lebowski

This past weekend, audiences were treated to a performance by John Goodman in Kong: Skull Island, and the movie went on to take the top spot at the box office. That’s good news, but the Roseanne star’s weekend got off to a great start before the numbers were in when he was given a place in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Joining a long list of Hollywood’s finest, John Goodman now has a star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the ceremony was made even more sweet because the man who was on hand to give him this glorious honor was none other than his The Big Lebowski co-star Jeff Bridges. But even better than just Jeff Bridges paying tribute to John Goodman is the fact that he did it in character as Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski.
