Martin McDonagh‘s In Bruges pulled out one of the best performances of Colin Farrell’s career, and surrounded him with memorable turns by Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes. His follow-up Seven Psychopaths brought another great turn out of Farrell and then unleashed the likes of Christopher Walken and Michael Stuhlbarg in a slew of colorful roles.
It’s no wonder, then, that top-notch stars seem to be lining up around the block to star in his next film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. But that doesn’t mean it’s not impressive. Frances McDormand was locked in at the lead last fall, and since then Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, and Caleb Landry Jones have also signed on. Now you can add Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, and Lucas Hedges to the growing list of top-notch talents. Read More »

Last night, Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage made his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, and you just knew that the late night sketch show was going to do something parodying the popular HBO fantasy series. Thankfully, they did not disappoint with a faux featurette from behind the scenes of show that illustrates how they’re bring Daenerys Targaryen‘s impressive dragons to life for the forthcoming sixth season. Sure, there’s visual effects involved, but there’s also an impressive motion capture performance that helps.

Game of Thrones season 6 is officially less than a month away and you don’t need the show’s creators telling you that this is the best season yet to get excited. The promise of more Game of Thrones should be enough all by itself. And while fans are excited to watch that gigantic battle sequence and collect their winnings after betting that Jon Snow would come back from the dead, a batch of new images remind us what’s really important: the show’s sprawling cast and characters we love. And their hopeless, completely screwed-up lives.

Even though Easter weekend is still a couple weeks away, The Angry Birds Movie is getting a head start by getting their holiday greeting out there. After all, birds have become a part of the Easter holiday, along with rabbits, for no good reason at all. The good news is that even though this is just a shameless plug for the animated adaptation of the mobile game franchise, it’s done in an extremely adorable way, thanks to the tiny hatchlings explaining what the Easter Bunny does for the holiday. Seriously, they’re almost unbearably cute. Read More »

Melissa McCarthy may not be returning for the Gilmore Girls revival, to the endless disappointment of Gilmore Girls fans, but don’t worry — she’s got plenty of other stuff to keep her busy in the coming months. Not only will she appear as one of the new fab four in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, she’s also starring in The Boss, which reunites her with her Tammy director (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone.
McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, a hotshot CEO whose extravagant lifestyle comes crashing down when she’s arrested for insider trading. She emerges from prison disgraced and discouraged, but finds an unlikely path back to the top in the form of Girl Scout cookies. Or rather, “Darnell’s Darlings Brownies.” Kristen Bell plays Michelle’s reluctant business partner, and Peter Dinklage shows up as… unclear, but the role involves him wielding a sword.

Even though the movie is called The Angry Birds Movie, based on the popular mobile game of the same name, it looks like there’s really only one angry bird here. Red, a bushy-eyebrowed bird with a temper problem, is voiced by Jason Sudeikis. While his anger seems to be giving him some grief in everyday life, his short fuse also seems to be the only thing that allows him to see that the recently arrived green pigs are out to steal their eggs. And if you’ve been waiting to see some birds in a slingshot in this movie, the new Angry Birds Movie trailer should do the trick. Read More »
Summer isn’t even halfway over, so there are still plenty of big movies coming to theaters in the next couple months. And surprisingly enough, one of the more entertaining films could end up being an Adam Sandler vehicle.

And if you’ve been wanting to know a little more about the film from director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), a couple new featurettes have surfaced, diving into the 8-bit assault on Earth. Watch the Pixels featurettes after the jump! Read More »
