Famous people are used to shill for politicians all the time. But unlike making a decision on which soft drink, pizza or shoes you’re going to buy, choosing to vote is a much bigger deal. That’s why a new campaign called Save the Day has called upon an endless array of famous people to encourage you to vote.
Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Keegan-Michael Key, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion and a bunch more familiar faces (and some not so familiar) were rounded up to create this video that encourages people to register to vote.

Just watch the video below. Read More »

When Alan Rickman isn’t busy threatening John McClane or glowering at Harry Potter, he finds time to direct a film now and again. His first directorial effort, The Winter Guest, was released in 1997.

Whatever you think of Jason Statham‘s movies, you can’t deny that Jason Statham works hard. He typically has at least a couple movies per year, and next year he has three. The first is Wild Card, a remake of the 1986 Burt Reynolds-starrer Heat. (Not to be confused with the 1995 Michael Mann movie Heat or 2013’s The Heat.)
Statham stars as a Las Vegas bodyguard who gets in hot water with a powerful mob boss. Michael Angarano, Sofia Vergara, Jason Alexander, Hope Davis, and Stanley Tucci also star. Watch the Wild Card trailer after the jump. Read More »
