Spike Jonze's new movie 'Her' may not get Scarlett Johansson a Golden Globe, but it's definitely one of our most anticipated titles for the rest of the year. The latest trailer plays up the melancholy as Joaquin Phoenix finds joy (and possible emptiness) when he falls in love with his computer's operating system.
Sony is starting their marketing blitz for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' a move that should culminate Thursday with the release of the film's first trailer. But before we get to see these characters in motion, new stills have emerged to highlight the hero and his new main villain Electro (Jamie Foxx).
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, Lou Ferrigno seems to think a new Hulk movie is coming after 'The Avengers 2,' watch an amazing 2013 film recap video, and check out the first trailer for the Elizabeth Olsen-led 'In Secret.'
Back in 2000, Will Ferrell was winding down as the star of 'Saturday Night Live' (he would leave after that season ended). He had a series of smaller, supporting roles in movies like 'Austin Powers' and 'Zoolander' but had yet to break through in a leading role. His search for the right project was jumpstarted one night when he was at home, watching an A&E 'Biography' special when he came upon a man who would spark inspiration and change both Ferrell's career and the modern state of comedy forever.
That man, that anchorman, was Mort Crim.
'Little Women,' based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, was released in 1994, and told the story of the March sisters, who grow up under the guidance of their mother during and after the Civil War. While the fictional girls' lives were blossoming, so were the careers of the film's young stars, like Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Winona Ryder and Christian Bale. Nineteen years later, we look back on the cast of this coming-of-age classic and see where they are now.
As previously reported, Sacha Baron Cohen has been working on a James Bond-style spy spoof over at Paramount, and today we're pleased to relay that the project not only has a title, but a director as well. 'Now You See Me' helmer Louis Leterrier has been chosen to tackle this not-so-top-secret and -- judging by the talent involved -- hopefully very hilarious upcoming new job.
Since its 1999 release, David Fincher's 'Fight Club' has gone from box office disappointment to one of the most influential films in recent memory. When the film first achieved its cult sensation status, you just know that conversations were held about crafting a sequel. Now 'Fight Club 2' finally is coming, but it's coming from author Chuck Palahniuk who wrote the original novel, and, surprisingly, the second coming of Tyler Durden won't be another book, it'll be a graphic novel.
Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have been keeping mum on their upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman' film, despite letting slip that Lex Luthor will pop up as the new villain. With pre-production underway and the recent release of 'Man of Steel' on Blu-ray and DVD, though, stars Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ben Affleck (Batman) have chimed in on what we can expect from the upcoming superhero follow-up.
Casey Affleck loves talking about movies, performance, filmmaking and story. He doesn't love how those conversations can be steered towards and twisted into portraits of his personal life, where gossip about his brother Ben Affleck and childhood friend Matt Damon wind up stealing the momentum of whatever project he's promoting. “Celebrity” often interferes with “actor” and, judging from his tone, it bugs the hell out of Affleck.
Luckily, for those aware enough to appreciate it, Affleck's career offers an abundance of meaty, provocative work worth talking about. The Oscar-nominated actor's recent credits include 'Ain't Them Body Saints,' 'The Killer Inside Me,' 'ParaNorman,' 'Gone Baby Gone,' and 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.' His latest, 'Out of the Furnace,' continues Affleck's trend of dissecting modern men as they stumble the throes of classic, dramatic storytelling. His character Rodney is an Iraq war vet struggling in the impoverished Rust Belt. To make ends meet, he bare-knuckle boxes — a hobby that causes friction with his brother (Christian Bale), and puts him and his boss (Willem Dafoe) in the crosshairs of a local gangster (Woody Harrelson). An implosion is imminent from the first time we see Affleck step on screen as Rodney.
I sat down with Affleck to talk 'Out of the Furnace' and the misconceptions that emerge from the never-ending maelstrom of gossip. Which eventually lead us to the actor's directorial debut, 'I'm Still Here,' the Joaquin Phoenix moc-doc that stands as one of the most under-appreciated films of the past decade.
