There are several moments in this trailer for Champs, a film which documents the highs and many lows of boxing, which should get anyone’s attention. Even those who aren’t boxing fans tend to have an opinion on the sport and the business behind it, and hearing something like 50 Cent saying the sport is one where “some of the toughest mothers in the world are letting guys who couldn’t make it take advantage of them” will probably reinforce some conceptions of the business. Here, boxers like Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Bernard Hopkins speak up, and celebrity commentators such asMark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Ron Howard, Spike Lee add their own views on the sport.

It is inevitable that Mike Tyson would punch his way to the big screen. Too bad the delivery method won’t be a film based on Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out (hey, it could happen) but a standard biopic will probably draw a crowd, too. Now just such a project is under way, and Jamie Foxx is set to play Tyson. The movie is in early stages of development; there’s not even a script. But Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire, The Wolf of Wall Street) is set to script. And because Foxx’s manager Rick Yorn is producing the film, we can expect that Foxx will stick around through the development process. Read More »
The Entourage movie doesn’t open for 15 months, but production is well underway. In fact, the film opens on the same day as Jurassic World, and Entourage will be in the can before director Colin Trevorrow shoots a foot of film on the dinosaur sequel.
The writer and director of Entourage, Doug Ellin, has been doing a pretty amazing job documenting the production via Instagram. He’s put up plenty of images of his principal cast – Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrera, Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven – but also revealed a slew of cameos and plenty of returning stars who played key roles in the eight seasons of the hit HBO show.
Below, check out some Entourage set photos. Read More »
Werner Herzog is currently out in the desert for his Gertrude Bell biopic Queen of the Desert, but soon he’ll focus on some arid Americana. His next film is slated to be Vernon God Little, based on the novel by DBC Pierre that won the Booker Prize after its 2003 publication. The novel is set in a small Texas border town, where a high school student shoots six fellow students before taking his own life.
Now Russell Brand, Sasha Pieterse of Pretty Little Liars, and young actor Austin Abrams (The InBetweeners) are in talks for major roles in the film.
Update: Mike Tyson and Pamela Anderson also have roles. If your lifelong dream is the same as mine (to see Herzog direct Pamela Anderson) then this movie just became a must-see.

It’s something of a crime that Scary Movie 5 is being sold using Danny Elfman’s great theme from Beetlejuice, but since the whole movie looks like something of a crime, I guess it’s just par for the course.
The movie continues the series’ goal of parodying big horror movies, and this trailer incorporates a bunch of gags that riff on Evil Dead and Mama, among other movies. It works about as well as the first trailer did, which is to say that your mileage with this one will probably vary based on
The trailer, which isn’t set up as a red-band, but might not be safe for work thanks to a shower scene. Read More »
