Nick Romano Biography
First things first: let's watch that first 'Tomorrowland' trailer again! The first footage from Disney's mysterious new movie debuted during New York Comic Con, as director Brad Bird, producer Damon Lindelof and stars Raffey Cassidy, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie and George Clooney took the stage to reveal even more details. Yes, this trailer is incredible and instantly bumps this film up on our list of most-anticipated releases of 2015, but even more footage debuted at Comic Con than was revealed online.
Let it be known that I never saw 'This Is Spinal Tap' prior to the 30th anniversary screening at the New York Film Festival late Wednesday night. I was aware of Christopher Guest (the six-fingered man, obviously) and his work with Michael McKean creating films centered on different musical genres -- 'This Is Spinal Tap,' 'A Mighty Wind' and 'Waiting for Guffman' -- but I still hadn't seen the first of them. I felt like an adolescent teen trying to fit in with the rest of the cool kids who laughed at nearly every joke and applauded for familiar scenes and faces. ("The numbers go all the way to 11!")
Michael Krivicka, James Percelay and Sam Pezzullo are hiding out in the back room of a wine shop they converted into a psychic parlor with the rest of their team. The windows are covered, the entire space has been cleared out, and their eyes are glued to the monitors. They have to maintain absolute silence so as to not tip off their next victim, who's coming in to get a free psychic reading, unaware of what horrors await.
There's been a lot of speculation about whether fans would actually get to see 'Iron Man 4' hit the big screen, and Robert Downey Jr. has been nothing but vague in his answers. After recent statements from him jokingly saying he'd only do it if Mel Gibson came on to direct, the actor went on 'Ellen' with another non-answer.
Shia LaBeouf has been known to utilize some ... how should we put it? ... unconventional acting methods. While he dropped acid for 'Charlie Countryman' and sent director Lars von Trier his own sex tapes for 'Nymphomaniac,' he was all about embracing the pain for his role in David Ayer's 'Fury.'
'Ew!' is for sure one of Jimmy Fallon's most entertaining bits. Even with all the game-heavy fair permeating his 'Tonight Show,' one can never really get tired of seeing Fallon and the evening's celebrity guests pulling off some sassy-teenage-girl realness. However, this time around, Fallon took things up a notch by transforming the popular sketch series into a music video with will.i.am.
Sorry, 'Dredd' fans. We all know how much you've been rooting for 'Dredd 2' to get the green light, but that's one project we'll only believe will happen when we see it. But, hey, how about a 'Dredd' online miniseries to hold you over for the time being?
Geoffrey Holder, the West Indian actor known by many as the infamous James Bond villain Baron Samedi in 'Live and Let Die' and the lovable butler Punjab in the original 'Annie' film, has passed away at the age of 84.
The 'Star Wars' prequel movies, Episodes 1-3, have received a bit of flack in comparison to the original Mark Hamill-, Carrie Fisher- and Harrison Ford-led installments, so a group of people decided to make them better -- or, at least, funnier -- through something called 'Star Wars Farts.'
Sorry to burst your bubble, but filming a sex scene for a movie is one pretty awkward affair. You and someone you've started developing a decent work relationship with have to strip naked and pretend to get all hot and bothered while pressing your bodies against each other and heavily breathing in each other's faces. Even more awkward? How about the director shouting, "Great fucking!"
