Exclusive: Vin Diesel Talks ‘Riddick,’ Another Sequel and ‘Fast and Furious’

Vin Diesel Riddick Interview
Universal Pictures

Vin Diesel always imagined a Riddick trilogy - a franchise based off the cult success of 2000's 'Pitch Black.' The success of 'The Fast and the Furious' one year later would allow Diesel the chance to make that happen. In 2004, Universal released 'The Chronicles of Ridd

‘Drinking Buddies’ Interview: Getting Wasted With Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson

Drinking Buddies
Magnolia Pictures

As the summer movie season winds to a close and we've become exhausted by explosions and superheroes and giant portals in the sky, the perfect remedy are some of the fantastic indie movies that are hitting theaters. One of those films is Joe Swanberg's 'Drinking Buddies,' a romantic comedy for people who like to drink a lot of beer and generally hate romantic comedies. We caught up with stars Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson to talk about getting drunk, skinny dipping and having no idea what is going to happen next.

We Ask the ‘Divergent’ Cast to Explain the Film to Newbies

If you watched the new 'Divergent' trailer this morning and wondered, "Wait, what exactly is this?," don't feel bad. We did too. Despite being based on the insanely popular book series and being touted as "the next 'Hunger Games'," we'll admit to not knowing much about the story or why it's become such a sensation. So, we went to some people who we thought might know: the cast of 'Divergent.'

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Interview: Growing Up, Getting Old and ‘The World’s End’

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are serious blokes. Their new movie, 'The World's End,' acts as the finale of the informal "Cornetto" trilogy and once again partners the 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' pair with director Edgar Wright. And while it's a comedy in the vein of those two films, it's tackling material that's significantly more mature than anything they have done before. Alcoholism, drug addiction, the deadliness of adult immaturity, all baked into the mold of a '70s sci-fi allegory — 'The World's End' walks a tightrope between poking fun and bathing in misery. The combination is exhilarating.

That's the appeal to Pegg, who co-wrote the film with Wright, and Frost, who had a great deal of say when it came to the film's evolution. In person, the duo bounce just as quickly between introspection and cracking wise as 'The World's End.' They're not in the business of cheap laughs. They make films and they're considerate of the artistic potential. Even a movie with killer robots can say something, and they're eager to say it.

I sat down with Pegg and Frost to talk 'The World's End,' why the movie has been floating around since 'Hot Fuzz' hit theaters, what they felt they owed fans years later, and why it might be awhile until we see them together again. No, there won't be anymore 'Spaced' (but they aren't afraid of speculating what happened to their TV counterparts).

Brie Larson Interview: On ‘Short Term 12,’ Becoming Famous and a Role in ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′

Brie Larson

I caught 'Short Term 12' at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival almost accidentally. It just happened to be playing and I just happened to be available. And I just happened to see the best film at the festival and one of the best films of the year. As Matt Singer wrote in his review, it's a "brilliant and amazing movie" with a revelatory performance by actress Brie Larson.

The actress, who you probably know from her supporting roles in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' or '21 Jump Street,' is poised to take a major leap into stardom this year. Along with her star-making turn in 'Short Term 12,' Larson has equally impressive work in 'Don Jon' and 'The Spectacular Now' also in theaters this fall. It's hard to look at Larson at this point in her career and not draw comparisons to Jennifer Lawrence - another actress who received critical acclaim for an indie film ('Winter's Bone') and went on to super-stardom.

We spoke to the young actress about the depressing work on 'Short Term 12,' if she's prepared for the next level of fame and starring in 'X-Men' and 'Star Wars: Episode 7.'

‘Captain America 2′ Interview: Catching Up With The Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan

Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Please don't tell anyone you are meeting with Sebastian Stan!"

So came the offer to speak with The Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, at Comic-Con 2013. Anxious to keep his appearance on the panel a secret (in the 'Captain America 2' footage show, Stan only shows up for a brief money shot at the very end), Marvel asked us to also keep our interview secret. We met Stan deep in the bowels of a hotel in a room within a room with a large black curtain draped around us.

There are lots of 'Captain America 2' secrets and Marvel wants to protect them. So, we got started asking Stan all about them.

‘The Wolverine’ Director James Mangold on Making a New Kind of Superhero Movie

The Wolverine James Mangold Interview
20th Century Fox

'The Wolverine' is not what you expect. It is very much a self-contained, somewhat “smaller” superhero movie. More straightforward thriller/noir/espionage film than CGI-heavy slugfest. It's less of a surprise, however, when you look at director James Mangold's body of work.

From 'Cop Land' to 'Girl, Interrupted' to '3:10 To Yuma' to 'Walk the Line' to 'Knight and Day' (which I really liked, by the way) to 'Identity' to 'Heavy,' he's had a go at nearly every genre. Now he's teamed up with Hugh Jackman, taking Logan from atop a hermit's mountain to the bullet trains of Japan.

I had the good fortune to speak with Mangold recently, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to movies.

Comic-Con 2013: We Talk With the ‘RoboCop’ Cast!

Robocop Comic Con 2013
Sony Pictures

Can the 'RoboCop' remake possibly live up to the original? That's the question on everyone's mind and what Sony Pictures was trying to prove when they brought the film to Comic-Con. We checked out the brand new 'RoboCop' footage and spoke to the cast of the film - Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson - plus director Jose Padilha to find out what this new 'RoboCop' was bringing to the table.
