Watch out, Shia LaBeouf, there’s a new unappreciated artistic genius in Hollywood, and she might as well be wearing a bag on her head, because she never changes her blank expression anyway. That artist is, of course, Kristen Stewart,...Show More Summary
Noted Scientologist and spray hair aficionado John Travolta sat down for an interview with The Telegraph recently, and expressed his aspirations for landing the iconic role of the James Bond villain in the next installment of the franchise. Seems like the reasonable next strategic move for a guy just announced to play a crotch-grabbing gummy bear.
If there’s a theme for this week’s new DVDs, it would be films that failed to live up to their expectations. Besides The Counselor (pictured above) there’s a big budget box office bomb, a critical darling forgotten by the Oscars, an...Show More Summary
It’s nice to know that ten months from now, we won’t have to rack our brains trying to think of our favorite TV scene of the year, because unless Dan Harmon reads my all-corgi Community spec script, it’s going to be the final six-minute sequence of Sunday’s True Detective. Show More Summary
Hollywood will continue its assault on the films of Dutch director Paul Verhoeven this weekend with the rebooted version of RoboCop, and whether Joel Kinnaman is a worthy successor to the Robo suit — or the entire thing is just a heap of scrap metal — isn’t the issue here. Today, we pay tribute to the original savior of dystopian Detroit — the original RoboCop.
Finally, an excuse for Will Ferrell to touch someone else’s drumset. During his AMA from earlier this month, Ferrell wanted to clear something up: “It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other…A lot of people think that it’s me playing for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
In the great Hollywood tradition of releasing a ton of clips that show us everything there is to know about a movie long before it comes out, we have four new clips today from the upcoming Liam Neeson thriller, Non-Stop. Only slightly...Show More Summary
INT. TOM HANKS’ GARAGE – NIGHT The camera pans across the wall of framed albums. A chill as hell bro brought up in the pits of Brentwood and the hella diverse suburbs of Evanston, Illinois sits in front of a TV. He’s CHET HAZE, not CHESTER. Please, just like, don’t call him Chester, that name is dumb and not even him anymore.
Ben Wheatley started as an animator and short filmmaker before doing viral videos (on purpose, not in an accidental and embarrassing way). With his friend Robin Hill, he made “cunning stunt,” one of the most popular viral videos in the mid-aughts. Show More Summary
Aside from some Indian in the Cupboard level magic, nothing could have made me happier as a kid than to see real life version of my stupid doodles. Thanks to Vancouver artist Wendy Tsao, you can submit your kid’s weird drawing and a few weeks later she’ll sell you a toy version of it. She’s like a 3D printer fueled by the innocence and imagination of childhood.
While everyone is freaking out about the casting news for Batman vs. Superman, Jesse Eisenberg is unleashing his underlying creepiness upon the world in The Double, which hits theaters on April 4. Directed by Richard Ayoade, The Double...Show More Summary
Last week, it was announced that Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp was teaming up with Fundamental Films for a reboot of the Transporter franchise, as Jason Statham decided that it was time for him to leave Frank Martin behind for other remakes and sequels that he could star in instead. Show More Summary
Vince said Pacific Rim broke his heart, and Nathan explained how it failed as a kaiju movie, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy these Pacific Rim valentines made by Portland-based illustrator, comic book artist, and musician Benjamin Dewey. He tweeted a series of 30 valentines about the awesome dumb robot movie, making puns and and having fun with the Jaegers’ silly names.
It’s safe to say that the majority of people who pay attention to movies knew that The LEGO Movie was going to be a huge hit, but what happened this weekend at the box office still deserves to be celebrated by both children and the child at heart. Show More Summary
Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are set to reprise their roles from 2012?s hit Pitch Perfect.

Opening Everywhere: The Monuments Men, The LEGO Movie, Vampire Academy Opening Somewhere: A Fantastic Fear of Everything FilmDrunk Suggests: Vince did not like The Monuments Men, which upset me because I just expect to love it. But I’m way too distracted by The LEGO Movie to care. Show More Summary
Hey, gang. I know it’s a little late for This Week in Posters this week and you’ve probably all gone home for the day, but I’m in Berlin for Berlinale and I haven’t had great WiFi for the most of the day. But now I’m back, with a belly...Show More Summary
In the picture above, taken sometime last year, Philip Seymour Hoffman is wearing a New York Knicks hat. Imagine if, after hearing that Hoffman died, the Knicks PR department tweeted, “The Hunger Games stars are hungry for Knicks basketball,...Show More Summary
The Sony Pictures remake of RoboCop, directed by José Padilha, is currently registering a 50% critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is probably pretty surprising news. It’s not that it looks that bad, but it’s just another cheesy remake of an already cheesy 80s action film, all for the sake of capitalizing on nostalgia, and critics don’t usually take very kindly to that.
Cinematic superheroes tend to have a big head, but this is ridiculous. Smashcave made these posters for bobbleheaded superheroes (and one villain) to promote their ad agency. We’re sharing this silliness because it’s Friday, and I believe...Show More Summary
