Before we see Woody Harrelson take Caesar and the rest of his super-intelligent simian army in War for the Planet of the Apes this summer, he’s taking on an equally daunting endeavor: shooting the world’s first live movie.
Lost in London is an ambitious project that will have Woody Harrelson directing and starring in a movie that will be live-streamed into theaters as it’s shot on-location in London this week on January 19th. If you think that sounds like a crazy idea, don’t worry, because all of Woody Harrelson’s famous friends don’t believe he can pull it off.
Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Liam Hemsworth, Ted Danson, Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and more all roast Woody Harrelson, mocking his cinematic experiment. Watch all of these people and more roast Woody Harrelson’s live movie. Read More »

There haven’t been too many overt nods to the original Planet of the Apes franchise in the new films. Caesar himself and the brief mention of the Icarus disappearing in Rise of the Planet of the Apes are the most obvious connections to the past, but Matt Reeves‘ upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes features one of the most prominent ties yet to the original series.

When it comes to movies, there are a variety of ways to experience them. You can head to theaters to catch one on the big screen, you can wait until one is available on VOD, Blu-ray or DVD to watch one from the comfort of your home, and you can even take movies with you on your mobile devices like tablets and smart phones. However, Woody Harrelson is about to deliver a movie in a way no one has ever experienced one before: live.
The man who will be seen facing off against an army of simians in War for the Planet of the Apes next summer will spend the early part of 2017 directing Lost in London, the world’s first live movie that will be shot as it’s being broadcast into theaters around the country. You might think that sounds like nothing more than a stage production broadcast live into theaters, which is done all the time, but this is much different.

It’s all been leading up to this. Rise of the Planet of the Apes showed us the unusual origins of Caesar (Andy Serkis), while Dawn of the Planet of the Apes chronicled his rise as a leader — and his struggle to keep the peace. Now the conflict between man and ape comes to a head in War for the Planet of the Apes, as Caesar faces off against an army of humans led by the Colonel (Woody Harrelson).
Meanwhile, Caesar is fighting another, more internal battle against his own darker instincts. And, well, it’s no spoiler to say this is probably going to turn out very, very badly for us humans. Watch the first War for the Planet of the Apes trailer below. Read More »
For the third time, writer Daniel Clowes (Ghost World) has seen one of his graphic novels adapted for the big screen. Wilson, based on Clowes’ novel of the same name, stars Woody Harrelson as the titular character, a socially awkward fellow without any filter, any real friends, or any sense of boundaries. The comedy is directed by Craig Johnson, who’s following up The Skeleton Twins.
Below, watch the Wilson red band trailer.

After making its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last month, the new coming-of-age comedy The Edge of Seventeen is heading to theaters this fall, and it looks like we could have another future classic on our hands.
The film stars Hailee Steinfeld coming into her formative years, full of hormones and awkward as hell, and just trying to survive high school. That sounds like it could be any old high school comedy, but there appears to be an authenticity and originality to this one that makes it feel superior to the usual movies that fall into this category. Watch the new red band Edge of Seventeen trailer, but beware of some salty language.

Following her breakthrough performance in True Grit, the future looked promising for young actress Hailee Steinfeld. Since then, she’s taken on a variety of roles ranging from the likes of satisfactory films such as Begin Again and Ender’s Game to more disappointing projects such as Three Days to Kill and Barely Lethal. But she really got a chance to show a different side to herself in Pitch Perfect 2. Now it appears we’ll get to see Steinfeld blossom into a more mature actress.
In what could serve as the spark towards a career that resembles something like the career of Chloe Grace Moretz or Elle Fanning, we have The Edge of Seventeen trailer. The film is produced by James L. Brooks, the producer of films such as Jerry Maguire and the writer/director of Broadcast News, Terms of Endearment and As Good As It Gets, and it looks like an outstanding coming of age story.
