Todd Phillips has built his career on bro comedies, from Road Trip to Old School to the Hangover trilogy. His latest film, War Dogs, is in a similar vein, with Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as the buddies whose wacky hijinks spiral out of control until they’re in over their heads, but this time there’s a fascinating real-world twist: it’s all based on a true story.
Based on the Rolling Stone article “Arms and the Dudes” by Guy Lawson, War Dogs centers on two Miami 20somethings who go into the lucrative business of gunrunning. They work their way up the food chain, raking in bigger and bigger sums of money and getting into more and more danger, until they land a $300 million contract from the U.S. government to arm the Afghan military. Watch the new War Dogs trailer below.

There are plenty of sports dramas about boxers fighting against all odds to become champions of the world. But the true story of Vinny Pazienza, better known as “The Pazmanian Devil,” is one of the most harrowing you’ll ever hear.
Vinny Pazienza had a promising boxing career after winning the light middleweight title, but then a car accident left him with a broken neck and the possibility of never being able to walk again. Bleed for This tells the story of Pazienza’s comeback, as the boxer (played by Whiplash star Miles Teller) defied caution from his doctors, friends and family to get back to full health, just so he could get pummeled in the boxing ring again.

Even though Whiplash came out back in 2014, it’s one of those movies that it doesn’t hurt to talk about every so often simply because it’s so damn good. One thing that makes the movie so outstanding is the incredible jazz soundtrack. But not everyone is a fan of the orchestral musical style, so Eclectic Method’s Johnny Wilson and 16-year-old DJ/producer Genranon decided to take the jazz, pump some high energy electronic music into it. The real catchy part comes from J.K. Simmons’ dialogue being remixed into the music as well, including all the yelling about rushing and dragging.

Miles Teller‘s had a bit of bad luck lately. Fantastic Four was an epic flop, The Divergent Series: Allegiant inspired thinkpieces about the death of YA, and the long-delayed Get a Job looks poised to sink without a trace this weekend. Fortunately, his next new film looks like it could get him back on the right track.
Directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover), War Dogs stars Teller and Jonah Hill as two 20something stoners who score a $30 million contract from the U.S. government to arm the Afghan military. Which sounds kind of far-fetched, except that War Dogs is based on an all-too-true story. The first War Dogs trailer has just hit, and you can check it out after the jump. Read More »
Fantastic Four took a beating from critics, comic book fans, and most audiences last summer. Before Josh Trank‘s butchered film even opened in theaters, 20th Century Fox prematurely scheduled a sequel for next summer, a plan that has since been nixed. Leading up to Fantastic Four‘s release there were plenty of rumors regarding the troubled production, but we’ve heard little about the whole debacle since then.
Below, actor Miles Teller discusses Fantastic Four and the experience of auditioning for Han Solo.

Harrison Ford is Han Solo, as much as any real person can embody any fictional character, and it’s tough to imagine anyone else stepping into the role after nearly 40 years. But with a “young Han Solo” spinoff in the works from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the time has come for us to meet and hopefully fall for a different stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder.
The filmmakers have taken their time, reportedly looking at thousands of young actors for the part, and now they’ve finally started to narrow down their choices. Among those on the shortlist are Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, and Logan Lerman. Hit the jump for more on the Han Solo shortlist. Read More »
