To date, the most successful movie that Noah Baumbach has been involved with grossed $530 million worldwide. This is an astounding and somewhat surprising figure until it’s revealed that the movie in question is ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ – a movie that Baumbach co-wrote with the writer of the other two 'Madagascar’ movies, Eric Darnell. As a director, Baumbach’s most successful movie to date is 2005’s ‘The Squid and the Whale,’ which grossed a little over $7 million domestically. This will all change when ‘While We’re Young’ – which premiered in Toronto and was the New York Film Festival’s Surprise Screening on Sunday evening – reaches theaters next year. Noah Baumbach has made a commercially viable film.
It's time for another installment of 'You Think You Know Movies'! Where last we revealed some cool facts about the first 'Star Wars' movie and Marvel's 'The Avengers,' we now take a trip outside the realm of sci-fi and superheroes with 'Mean Girls.'
It's hard to not find something to admire about the new 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer. After all, director/star Seth MacFarlane could have rode the massive success of 'Ted' down far more accessible and surefire avenues, but nope, here he is, making an uber-violent western comedy. Even if you don't find his sense of humor humor amusing, you've got to cut him some slack for stepping far outside of Hollywood's comfort zone.
With Seth MacFarlane's 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' hitting theaters relatively soon, the director is wasting no time getting to work on 'Ted 2,' the follow-up to his live-action directorial debut featuring Mark Wahlberg and MacFarlane himself as the voice of the lovable, foulmouthed teddy bear. Today brings news that the film has made its latest casting acquisition, and MacFarlane is keeping things close to home: Amanda Seyfried, who also stars in 'A Million Ways,' signed on for the female lead in 'Ted 2.'
After the massive success of his directorial debut, 'Ted,' 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane had the clout to make pretty much whatever he wanted for his second feature. A Western comedy called 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' probably wasn't the easiest project to push through development (the difficult word for the studio must have been "Western"), but we've got to commend MacFarlane for making a film that appears to be significantly different than his previous work. The first image from the film has arrived online, and it features three things that we can't wait to see and one that we're very unsure about.
In the first half hour of 'Lovelace,' the biopic of legendary porn star Linda Lovelace (aka Linda Boreman) directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the film is as bubbly as Lovelace's notorious porn film, 'Deep Throat.' There's something cute, albeit slight, about this version of events -- unfortunately, the last hour of the film remains just as slight in its interpretation of the "facts."
As you'd expect from the biopic of the most famous pornographic actress of all time, the new international trailer for 'Lovelace' sells the fact that the film is full of sex -- like, lots and lots of sex. Although this is certainly not a red-band trailer, it often brushes up against the edge of being approved for all audiences (this was cut for Europeans, after all), so proceed cautiously.
Amanda Seyfried stars in the Linda Lovelace biopic, following her journey from porn stardom to igniting a movement.
'Mean Girls' hit theaters in 2004, nine years ago today, and became an instant classic -- a tale of high school superficiality and clique culture run amok. It solidified Lindsay Lohan as a huge star and introduced us to Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Lizzy Caplan. But most importantly, it gave us endlessly quotable moments -- stuff we're still laughing about nine years later. To celebrate this anniversary, we've collected GIFs of our favorite and funniest moments.
