Back in 1990, before Johnny Depp was the major A-list actor he is today, he starred in the John Waters cult musical comedy 'Cry-Baby,' about a conservative girl in 1950s Baltimore who falls for a rebellious bad boy against her mother's wishes. A parody of classic musicals like 'Grease,' the movie wasn't a major success at the time, but went on to become a beloved cult classic and inspire a Broadway musical. Twenty-four years later, we revisit the cast of the film that helped make Depp famous and see what they're up to now.
'Frank' is a movie that has the audacity to cast a known face like Michael Fassbender in the lead role and then hide him in a giant, silly-looking fake head for the entire running time. In other words, it's our kind of weird. The film was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival -- where we gave it a sparkling review -- and with the first 'Frank' trailer, you can see why. This movie looks crazy and, more importantly, crazy good.
The first 'Sin City 2' trailer is finally here, and it's been long overdue. Not only has it been nine years since the first film hit theaters, but also the Robert Rodriguez film (officially titled 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For') was delayed for a year for reasons unknown. So really appreciate this first look at the coming sequel.
'The Last of Us' was one of the most critically and financially successful video games released in 2013, with many gamers declaring it to be one of the best games ever released in lifespan of the PlayStation 3. So it's not surprising that a movie version is officially in the works. (That sound you just heard is gamers all over the world collectively wincing because Hollywood has a habit of screwing up even the most surefire video game adaptations.)
Marvel dropped an extended 'Captain America 2' trailer, giving us one major look at the next installment and exciting fans to the point of mass hysteria. Well, perhaps it's not as dramatic as that, but this is the most extensive look yet at the sequel, officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
The film is sort of an unofficial who's-who guide to Wes Anderson movies. Goldblum and Willem Dafoe, for example, were re-enlisted by the acclaimed indie director (after starring in 'The Life Aquatic' and 'Fantastic Mr. Fox,' respectively) to join a cast that includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton and Anderson newcomers like Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori and Saoirse Ronan.
We had a chance to sit down with Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe to talk about working in a "wonderland of a town" for 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' being part of the Wes Anderson "brotherhood," and bringing a dark edge to the humorous caper adventure.
Ellen DeGeneres certainly gave the 2014 Oscars ceremony the majority of its highlights, but audiences were left without a major "wow" moment -- and now we know why. The lovable and adorable Batkid, who took the world (and the internet) by storm, was originally supposed to make an onstage appearance alongside 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Andrew Garfield, but his segment was canceled at the last minute. So what was the reason behind the cut?
If you can judge a filmmaker by the number of unforgettable characters he's created, than Wes Anderson is one of the all-time greats. Over the course of seven films, Anderson has introduce the world to a collection of oddballs, scumbags, dreams, loners and manic-depressives. You can always pick an Anderson character out of a li
