Roast Woody Harrelson's Live Movie

Before we see Woody Harrelson take Caesar and the rest of his super-intelligent simian army in War for the Planet of the Apes this summer, he’s taking on an equally daunting endeavor: shooting the world’s first live movie.

Lost in London is an ambitious project that will have Woody Harrelson directing and starring in a movie that will be live-streamed into theaters as it’s shot on-location in London this week on January 19th. If you think that sounds like a crazy idea, don’t worry, because all of Woody Harrelson’s famous friends don’t believe he can pull it off.

Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Liam Hemsworth, Ted Danson, Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and more all roast Woody Harrelson, mocking his cinematic experiment. Watch all of these people and more roast Woody Harrelson’s live movie. Read More »

Justice League Cast

Since we’re coming to the end of 2016, movie studios are starting to push a preview of what’s in store for the big screen in 2017, especially on the blockbuster front. It’s going to be another crowded summer, but one of the more anticipated movies of the year won’t be arriving until this fall, and that’s Justice League. But that’s not stopping Warner Bros. Pictures from stirring up some hype.

Even though we have still a little under 11 months away from the release of Justice League, the studios included mention of the movie in their 2017 movie preview press kit. Within their brief bit of information on the superhero ensemble movie, they included one cast member who hadn’t yet been confirmed by the studio, and one that we hadn’t heard of at all yet.

Find out about the new Justice League cast details after the jump. Read More »

War Dogs

Todd Phillips‘ War Dogs might become one of the summer’s few pleasant surprises. Critics are somewhat mixed on the film, but the reviews are far more positive than what we read for The Hangover sequels, and they’re about on par with the reviews for Phillips’ Old SchoolStarsky & Hutch, and Road Trip, his more well-liked movies. Jonah Hill is receiving praise for his performance as obnoxious gunrunner Efraim Diveroli, but originally, Shia LaBeouf was going to play the character.

Below, find out why LaBeouf and Jesse Eisenberg didn’t lead the War Dogs cast.

Lex Luthor in Justice League

Shortly after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there was some doubt from Jesse Eisenberg regarding his return as Lex Luthor for Justice League. The DC Comics superhero ensemble was on the verge of starting production, but the actor wasn’t sure if he was needed just yet. But that seems to have changed in the past couple months.

While appearing at MCM London Comic-Con over the weekend, Jesse Eisenberg confirmed that we’ll see the return of Lex Luthor in Justice League. And if the previous rumor is to be believed, that means we’ll have at least two villains appearing in the film. Read More »

Now You See Me 2 clips

I’ve been itching to see Now You See Me 2 since I screened the first 15 minutes of the film at CinemaCon and a bomb scare in the theater somehow made the rest of the movie disappear. The trailers are compelling, although the CG-ness of some of the illusions still has me hesitant. Lionsgate has released two new clips from the upcoming magic heist sequel. Watch them now after the jump and tell me if they make you any more excited for the Jon Chu-directed thriller.

Cafe Society pic

Earlier today, we shared a few clips from Woody Allen‘s upcoming picture, Café Society. Although it’s sometimes difficult to know what to expect from Allen these days, Café Society looks more enjoyable and intriguing than, say, Magic in the Moonlight and You Will Meet a Tall Darker Stranger. Some of the writer and director’s most recent comedies haven’t struck a chord with audiences and fans, but perhaps his latest film will.

Below, watch the new Café Society trailer.

Like clockwork, another Woody Allen movie has peeked its head over the horizon. It’s an annual tradition at this point: the legendary filmmaker always arrives with another movie and each of them feels like another bold shout of “I’m not dead yet!” at the dark, gaping and empty void that encircled his comedy and drama for the past fifty or so years. After all, you have to go back to 1981 to find a year that didn’t feature the release of a new Allen film. A year without a new Woody Allen movie is the year Woody Allen kicks the bucket.

The trailer for Café Society, his latest movie, has arrived and, well, it looks like another late-period Woody Allen movie. By now, you probably know whether or not this is your thing.

Lex Luthor in Justice League

In just a few weeks, Justice League starts production. Since this will be the first time Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg will be seen on the big screen at the same time, it’s bound to be bigger than even Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, that all depends on whether or not the fans who were disappointed by Zack Snyder‘s comic book battle are willing to give him another chance for the DC Comics superhero ensemble.

We’re still not sure what the story will be in Justice League, but it sounds like Jesse Eisenberg may not be reprising his role as the villain Lex Luthor, at least for the first part of the two-part DC Comics flick. Read what Eisenberg had to say about Lex Luthor in Justice League after the jump, but beware of spoilers for Batman v Superman. Read More »
