Channing Tatum Was Almost in the 'Fast & Furious' Movies, but He Screwed It Up

Fri, 02/05/2016 - 06:12

The smooth and suave Channing Tatum recently stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel show while promoting Hail, Caesar! (in theaters this week), and while there he romanced a lucky stranger yanked off the street in honor of Valentine's Day (watch the video below), but he also spoke about his worst audition ever for the film The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Back in 2006 -- before the Fast & Furious franchise found its footing again, reuniting franchise stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in...

George Miller Talks 'Justice League: Mortal,' the Superhero Movie That Never Was

Fri, 02/05/2016 - 06:09

Last year we got a peek at concept art for Justice League: Mortal, the project that George Miller was slated to direct back in 2007. Our own Chris Clow provided a very detailed account of the project nearly three years ago, pointing out that Miller had been "relatively silent" about his role in the production. Miller, who has now been nominated for two Academy Awards for his work as producer and director of Mad Max: Fury Road, recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to...

The Coen Brothers Want to Make a Sequel to This Movie

Thu, 02/04/2016 - 07:09

Writer-directors Joel and Ethan Coen are not in the business of making sequels, as much as their fans (and Tara Reid) would love to see the continuing adventures of the Dude in a Big Lebowski follow-up. Their films are so immensely colorful when it comes to their typically large ensembles that it's impossible not to want to see more from any one character. For instance, in their latest, Hail, Caesar!, you could spin off an entire movie about Tilda Swinton's twin gossip columnists or...

Trailer Roundup: Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick 'Get a Job,' Plus 'Me Before You' and More

Thu, 02/04/2016 - 07:07

Emilia Clarke broke out big time during the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones and has remained a fan favorite. As Daenerys Targaryen, she began as a fairly timid young woman who quickly blossomed into a mighty leader. She demonstrated her action chops in last summer's Terminator: Genisys, taking on the iconic role of Sarah Connor and more than holding her own opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. But how will she do as the star of a beguiling romance? The first trailer for Me Before...

What Parents Can Expect from 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'

Wed, 02/03/2016 - 13:30

My daughter is not a reader. Unlike my college-age son, who read “War and Peace” one summer “just for fun,” I can’t get my daughter to read anything that doesn’t have the words “Wimpy Kid” in the title. In fact, I recently bribed her one frappucino per chapter to read “A Wrinkle in Time” with me…and I did all the reading. This is why I heartily endorse Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It uses all the framework, language and...

Vin Diesel Announces 'Fast and Furious' Movies Going All the Way to 2021

Wed, 02/03/2016 - 10:54

There aren't very many movie franchises that can confidently lay claim to release dates that are years and years away. Star Wars gets to do it. Superhero movies get to do it. That's basically it. Every other franchise, whether it's Toy Story or The Hangover, has to take sequels one movie at a time. Every other franchise except for The Fast and the Furious, that is.   The series that keeps on defying all expectations already had an April 14, 2017 release date for...

'Titanic' Shocker! Jack Could Have Lived, Admits Kate Winslet

Wed, 02/03/2016 - 05:38

Please note: this post includes a major spoiler about the conclusion of 1997's Titanic. Originally slated for theatrical release in the summer of 1997, James Cameron's Titanic was a tremendous risk at the time. Thanks to the global success of Aliens, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and True Lies, Cameron was known as an action director, so the prospect of him directing a romantic epic set on the doomed maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic in 1912 was surprising, to say the least. The...

Another Classic Character Almost Starred in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 13:06

The one thing that's most evident when it comes to the first two Star Wars movies Disney is putting out (The Force Awakens and Rogue One) is that the studio has every intention of mixing familiar characters with new ones. The Force Awakens alone saw Luke, Leia and Han return, and in one scene we even briefly heard the voices of both young and old Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as Yoda. However, that last character almost had a much bigger role in the film, according to Force Awakens editors...

Nicholas Sparks Movies: What They Should Have Been Called

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 09:00

Okay, let's be honest - we love Nicolas Sparks' movies as much as the next sappy, hopeless romantic. And given the fact that the The Choice will be Sparks' eleventh novel-turned-film, we're guessing we'll be seeing a lot more of his signature romantic-tragedies set against a Carolina backdrop hitting the big screen. And we couldn't be happier. So, in celebration of The Choice, we re-titled the movie of the first ten Nicholas Sparks movies to give a more honest...

Here's the Real Reason Why Bill Murray Kept Living on Repeat in 'Groundhog Day'

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 07:01

What's not to love about Bill Murray as an ill-fated weatherman who is forced to relive the same day over and over in Groundhog Day? Comedy gold. If you've ever wondered the real reasons why Murray's sourpuss meteorologist was chosen to repeat the same sadistic time loop, voiceover artist Eddie Deezen has your answer. He ponders why Murray's Phil deserved such a hefty punishment and points to the second draft of the script for an explanation. Apparently it has...

This Villain Was Scientifically Determined to Be the Most Realistic Movie Psychopath

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 06:53

Are all villains in movies psychopaths? No. But are all serial killers in movies psychopaths? That's also no, as revealed by an actual scientific study of 400 movies released over the past century. Led by a professor in Belgium, the examination of psychopathy in cinema lasted three years and resulted in a final list of 126 characters (105 of them male) that qualified for the diagnosis. You can read the whole report in the latest issue of the Journal of Forensic Sciences. But here is...
