Michael Keaton is currently on top of the world. He’s coming off of not one but two Best Picture winners, and could very well find himself in the Oscar race again next winter depending on how things go with The Founder. But that’s not to say he’s limiting himself to prestige dramas. His latest new project is the action thriller American Assassin, which, no surprise, is being envisioned as a potential franchise-starter. Read More »

At a couple points in your life, you’ve probably said Beetlejuice to yourself three times, just to see what would happen. Sadly, it just doesn’t work the way it does in Tim Burton‘s classic 1988 horror comedy. But now if you say Beetlejuice three times and you have some extra cash lying around, you can finally summon Beetlejuice into your house.
Sideshow Collectibles has just unveiled a new sixth scale Beetlejuice figure, along with the tombstone environment where Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis dug up the bio-exorcist played perfectly by Michael Keaton. Check out the Sideshow Collectibles Beetlejuice figure below! Read More »

Writer-director Tom McCarthy has had one bizarre year. He wrote and directed one of the year’s finest films, Spotlight, and also The Cobbler — a movie so strange and tonally troubled you must watch it. McCarthy, to my surprise, also had a role in this summer’s Pixels. The man keeps busy. But Spotlight is the movie everyone keeps talking about, and for good reason. It’s an all around excellent film, with an efficient script, taught direction, and quietly riveting performances.
After the jump, watch Tom McCarthy break down a Spotlight scene.

With Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance), co-writer/director Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel) took a break from torturing characters to, well, torture some more characters. Birdman has a sense of humor, though, something we hadn’t seen much of from Iñárritu in his past work. The film went on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, a divisive win amongst movie fans. It is a popular opinion that the long-takes are dazzling, though, and if you want to see some of the hidden edits in Birdman, check them out after the jump.

Quentin Tarantino has always been praised for his casting choices, and its obvious that the filmmaker puts a lot of thought into which actors might be good for which characters. The writer/director even seems to write certain roles for particular actors. Now a copy of Quentin Tarantino’s cast wish-list for Pulp Fiction has made its way online, showing the filmmaker’s original choices for the film’s cast, from first choices to back-up/alternate choices.

Not too long ago, we featured an amusing sketch from Saturday Night Live featuring Chris Pratt doing an impression of Jason Statham selling Steakums. It was a cut sketch from when Pratt hosted, and while it was worth a laugh here and there, it was easy to see why it didn’t make the live episode.
Now another sketch that was cut for time has surfaced from when Oscar nominee Michael Keaton returned to Studio 8H as host of SNL for the first time in 23 years. In the sketch, Keaton plays the host of a show not unlike Blue’s Clues, but when he gets some bad news, we learn some pretty weird and twisted things about his TV show. Watch the Micheal Keaton cut SNL sketch after the jump! Read More »

Spotlight tells the story of the Boston Globe’s investigation into allegations of child molestation by Catholic priests, and just look at this cast assembled by director Tom McCarthy: you’ve got Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schrieber, Brian D’Arcy James, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup playing people on both ends of the legal argument. The Spotlight trailer features them all, and it’s footage that is pretty difficult to resist in the end. Read More »

Michael Keaton, the former Batman and recent Birdman, is going back to comic book movies. This new project, however, isn’t a property or role that most of his fans will be familiar with. Keaton will produce and adaptation of the Boom! Studios comic series Imagine Agents, created by writer Brian Joines and artist Bachan, about a sort of Men in Black-like agency that keeps track of kids’ imaginary friends.
Keaton will take a primary role in the film, too, as a veteran agent who has to mentor a young recruit. Read More »
