The Greatest Showman photos

Hugh Jackman showed the world he was a true song and dance man when he hosted the Oscars back in 2009, and not long after that performance, 20th Century Fox gave the greenlight to the actor’s passion project: a biopic called The Greatest Showman about famous huckster and circus magnate P.T. Barnum. Commercial director Michael Gracey was hired to direct, but he had one suggestion for the project, which was originally pitched as a straightforward biopic: “I said, ‘If you’re going to call it The Greatest Showman, you should play to your strengths and we should make it a musical.’ That ridiculous remark cost me seven years of my life.”

It’s safe to say Jackman has been a little busy during that time, but the movie is finally set to come out later this year, and EW has given us our first look at it with a batch of new images. Check out the first The Greatest Showman photos below.

Baywatch Trailer

A few studio comedies try to break up the summer blockbuster spectacle every year, but some try to combine the laughs with the action. That’s exactly what the big screen adaptation of Baywatch is trying to do by teaming up Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in what Paramount Pictures hopes will be their own 21 Jump Street.

So far, the trailers for Baywatch have been unimpressive in the comedy department, but a new red band trailer for the summer comedy is easily the best one yet, though it still doesn’t look like the quality buddy cop comedy that it’s trying to be.

baywatch trailer spotlights priyanka chopra

Priyanka Chopra, the Bollywood star who now appears weekly on the ABC show Quantico and is set to terrorize the crew as the villainous Victoria Leeds on Baywatch, was conspicuously missing from much of the advertising for the Dwayne Johnson action comedy. She wasn’t on the posters, and she was barely in the official trailer or TV spots.

But that’s finally changed, with the latest trailer for Baywatch, which features Chopra finally catching some sun as the drug-dealing club owner who seeks to shut Baywatch down all while keeping her fabulous hair intact.

It’s up to Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron to “restore the Baywatch brand.” And it seems like that brand is fast, furious and explosive in the new official trailer for Paramount Pictures’ Baywatch — with plenty of good old-fashioned slow-mo shots thrown in there as well.

james franco as tommy wiseau

Almost three years ago, James Franco optioned the rights to Greg Sestero‘s book The Disaster Artist, which the actor wrote about the experience of making The RoomThe Room, of course, is director/writer/star Tommy Wiseau‘s cult midnight classic, a movie made with significantly more passion than skill. While we were hoping to see Franco’s film and Zeroville out last year, Franco’s behind-the-scenes look at The Room is debuting next month at South by Southwest.

Before The Disaster Artist premieres, there’s a new pic of Franco brothers from the film. Below, check out The Disaster Artist photo.

Baywatch Super Bowl spot

Can Baywatch the movie do to Baywatch the TV show what 21 Jump Street the movie did to 21 Jump Street the TV show? We don’t know yet, but it looks like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will make it happen or die trying. They star as a couple of lifeguards tasked with restoring the Baywatch brand (how meta) and tracking down a sinister criminal plot threatening their beloved beach.

Also starring are Kelly Rohrbach as the new C.J. Parker (i.e., the new Pamela Anderson), plus Alexandra DaddarioIlfenesh HaderaJon Bass, and Priyanka Chopra. While this Baywatch clearly boasts a goofier tone and some splashier action, it retains the same obsession with ogling suntanned hardbodies. Check out the Baywatch Super Bowl spot below.

Baywatch trailer

Paramount Pictures has dropped the first trailer for Baywatch, the big-screen adaptation of the 1990s TV series about scantily clad hotties running in slow motion. But this isn’t that Baywatch. Yes, there are still super attractive people hanging out on a beach in skimpy swimwear. But this one is much more in the vein of 21 Jump Street the movie, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a pair of mismatched lifeguards who set out to “restore the Baywatch brand.” Ha ha, get it?

Alexandra DaddarioKelly RohrbachJon Bass, and Ilfenesh Hadera play some of the other lifeguards surrounding them, and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directs. Watch the first Baywatch trailer below.

Rebecca Ferguson in Mission Impossible Rogue Nation

The Greatest Showman is collecting a pretty great cast. Hugh Jackman has been set to lead the P.T. Barnum musical biopic for several years already, and in recent months the project has really started to pick up steam with Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, and Zendaya all coming aboard as well. Now the latest addition is Rebecca Ferguson, the Swedish actress who stole scenes last year in Mission: Impossible – Rogue NationRead More »

Zac Efron in The Greatest Showman on Earth

Throughout the early 2000s, Zac Efron jumped around with small roles in TV shows and made-for-TV movies. But he caught his big break on The Disney Channel as one of the stars of High School Musical. The TV movies sparked two sequels, one of which actually ended up in theaters, and gave Efron the firm footing to launch a film career. Since then, he’s only returned to the musical world once with a supporting turn in Hairspray, but now he’ll finally be singing and dancing on the big screen again.

Zac Efron is currently in talks to take a role alongside Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman on Earth, the circus musical that has been developing since 2009, following the creation of the three-ring Barnum & Bailey Circus. Find out more about Zac Efron in The Greatest Showman on Earth after the jump. Read More »

Adam and Dave Need Wedding Dates Brothers Day

This summer has already gotten a big dose of comedy with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, a refreshing comedy sequel that mixes things up just enough to be on par with the hilarity of the first film. Plus, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping will deliver some huge laughs as the This Is Spinal Tap for the next generation. But there’s still more R-rated comedy in store later this summer.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates brings Neighbors star Zac Efron and Pitch Perfect Treblemaker Adam DeVine together as a couple of wild party guys who try to find some nice, polite girls in order to tone things down for their sister’s wedding. But what they get instead are Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, their female equals in every way, pretending to play it sweet for a free trip to Hawaii.

The most recent red band trailer just debuted last week, and now Efron and DeVine have come together to read a “children’s book” about brothers, because it’s the made-up holiday of Brother’s Day. Watch the Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Brothers Day video below. Read More »
