For those who hate the outdoors and going on "family outings," we've got plenty of stuff to help you waste some glorious couch time this Memorial Day weekend. There are tons of movie and TV show marathons planned, so sit back, grab your remote and relax -- and let us help you decide what to watch. Here are some of the highlights coming this weekend:
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, watch the first clip from 'Monsters University,' rejoice at a 'Macgruber 2' updates and gaze upon new posters for 'World War Z,' 'The Conjuring' and 'Hatchet 3.'
Filming on 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trucks along as director Bryan Singer releases more pics of returning franchise members and announces the latest additions to the cast -- and this latest update might send you running off in a twirl! It's just been announced that 'American Horror Story' star Evan Peters has just been cast in the role of -- wait for it -- Quicksilver. We wonder what Joss Whedon has to say about this...
Since the massive success of Marvel's 'The Avengers,' everyone has wondered when Warner Bros. and DC Comics would get their act together and start teaming up their roster of superheroes on the big screen. Although the long-in-the-works 'Justice League' movie has started and stalled on numerous occasions, 'Man of Steel' star Henry Cavill was recently asked about another possibility. How about a Batman/Superman movie?
After she became an alien-possessed human in 'The Host' and a teen vampire in 'Byzantium,' will Saoirse Ronan end up next transforming into a witch? More specifically, Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers 2'? The director recently confirmed that this classic comic book character and her brother, Quicksilver, are currently set to appear in the sequel to Marvel's superhero team blockbuster, and the actress the studio is reportedly using as a template for Scarlet Witch has come forward to address the chatter.
In 1985, Ridley Scott released his dark fantasy film 'Legend,' inspired by classic fairy tales and starring young up-and-coming actors like Tom Cruise and Mia Sara in the lead roles. Now that almost 30 years have passed, we thought it would be fun to check in and see what the cast of the film has been up to.
How do you manage to get people who normally couldn't care less about racing interested in a Formula One movie? You cast Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl as dueling drivers, of course! Based on the true rivalry between racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, Ron Howard's 'Rush' is shaping up to be one of the most interesting releases coming this Fall and the newest trailer only has us more interested.
Last night was the first ever public screening of 'World War Z,' this summer's big zombie action-thriller. That would've been enough excitement for the fans in Hoboken, NJ who lined up for hours for their first look at the film. But they got an added surprise: Mr. Brad Pitt.
We were in attendance and after all the fuss, it turns out that 'World War Z' is actually...a pretty good movie.
Comedy sequels are not uncommon, but trilogies are rare. And yet, 'The Hangover Part III,' the third and presumably final installment in Todd Phillips’ epic saga of four friends who can’t seem to keep themselves sober (or even conscious) when they come together, seems oddly natural given the enormous appeal of its ensemble cast. The film brings Wolf Pack members Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug full circle, returning them to Vegas older and marginally wiser as they try to track down the potty-mouthed Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) for another gangster (John Goodman) who claims that he stole $21 million in gold bars from him during their first drugged-out stint in Sin City.
We spoke with stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms at Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace, where the original and final chapters were filmed about wrapping up the most successful comedy series in movie history. In addition to offering their thoughts about the franchise’s trajectory, they reflected on the star-making experience of playing these now-iconic roles, and offered a few suggestions about how to follow up their collective success with reunion films – in new styles and other genres, no less.
As you may have heard, 'Star Trek' director J.J. Abrams has some different stars in sight for his next project; the man is the chosen one for 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' There have been conflicting reports regarding his involvement in the inevitable 'Star Trek 3,' but, regardless, do you want J.J. to return for a third film, or should someone else take over?
