Sam Neill is a prolific actor, perhaps more so than most people seem to realize. Best known to a particular generation for roles in Jurassic Park and Event Horizon, Neill’s long and fascinating career can’t really be reduced to a certain genre or character type. So it’s both pleasantly unexpected and not at all surprising to see him as a curmudgeonly and stoic, but ultimately kind-hearted uncle in Hunt For the Wilderpeople, the adventurous new coming-of-age comedy from Taika Waititi — the director of What We Do in the Shadows, who also recently signed on to helm Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel.

Andrew Stanton and Lindsey Collins on ‘Finding Dory,’ Making Sequels, and What They Learned From Steve Jobs

“I like that the title of your outlet has one of our characters’ names in it.” Those were the first words spoken by Andrew Stanton, director of Finding Nemo, WALL-E, and John Carter, as we start our phone interview about his newest creation, Finding Dory. And he’s right. By coincidence, ScreenCrush shares half a name with Crush, one of the scene-stealing sea turtles from both Nemo and Dory (voiced, as it turns out, by Stanton himself).

The Lonely Island, the comedy musical trio behind great American classics ‘Dick in a Box,’ ‘I’m on a Boat, ‘and ‘Jizz in My Pants,’ are now movie stars. Or at least they star in a new movie as fake pop stars mocking celebrity culture and the music industry.

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kristofer Hivju Shares His Tormund and Brienne Shipper Name

Amid all the blood and nudity, ‘Game of Thrones’ gave us a little romance to root for this season. The last two episodes of Season 6 found Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) making eyes at Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) when she arrived at Castle Black. Though Episode 4 director Daniel Sackheim thought Tormund’s flirtatious glances subtle, they quickly set the internet on fire. There were Brienne and Tormund memes, there were montage videos; it was the beginning of a beautiful warrior relationship (at least if fans had their way).
