I really want to see While We’re Young and I’m terrified to see it at the same time. I love writer/director Noah Baumbach (he’s the guy who made The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg, and Frances Ha), and I can really relate to the premise of an older, childless married couple trying to recapture their youth. But I think I might relate to that premise a little too strongly.
Ben Stiller has accomplished a lot in his life -- this is the guy who created 'Zoolander,' after all -- but his dearest memory might just be a very unexpected one: that time he survived a hot air balloon ride. Said ride wasn't conceived of as a daredevil experiment, it was actually a fun part of a Stiller family vacation in Italy. It was supposed to be a good experience!
Noah Baumbach’s last movie, ‘Frances Ha’, was one of our favorite movies of 2013. If you don’t trust our judgment, it was also one of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite movies of 2013. For as good as it was though, ‘Frances Ha’ never really broke out in a big way. That should all change with Baumbach’s next movie, ‘While We’re Young’, which looks like a very, very funny Ben Stiller movie.
A sequel to Ben Stiller’s ‘Zoolander’ has been a long time coming. The original movie, which followed the hilariously dumb misadventures of a male model named Derek Zoolander (Stiller), opened in the fall of 2001. 13 years later, work is finally starting to ramp up on the follow-up. Actor and writer Justin Theroux will direct ‘Zoolander 2’ (which should be called ‘2lander,’ for obvious reasons), and Stiller will reprise his role as Zoolander, along with Owen Wilson as his model buddy Hansel and Will Ferrell as the world’s most evil fashion designer Mugatu. Deadline says that the returning cast now has its first new addition in the form of the lovely Penelope Cruz.
Ben Stiller returns for the third film in the popular family franchise, along with Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, and Steve Coogan.
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 hard to believe there's a third movie about a museum filled with animated exhibits coming our way, but nonetheless, the first 'Night at the Museum 3' trailer is here to unlock the 'Secret of the Tomb' -- and to make Ben Stiller work for his paycheck.
Released in 1999, 'Mystery Men' starred Ben Stiller, William H. Macy and Hank Azaria as a trio of wannabe superheroes with unimpressive "powers" who unite with an unlikely group of outcasts to stop an insane villain from destroying their city. Based on 'Flaming Carrot Comics' by Bob Burden and bolstered by a hilarious ensemble cast, the film unfortunately wasn't a huge success at the box office, but -- like its protagonists -- went on to become something of a scrappy underdog in its own right, and is treasured by many as an underrated comedy classic. Fifteen years later, we revisit the cast of this wacky not-so-superhero ensemble flick and see what they're up to now.
After the wild and crazy success of Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike,' it doesn't surprise us in the slightest that a movie about the Chippendales dancers is in the works. It also doesn't surprise us that Alan Ball of HBO's 'True Blood' fame is writing and directing the project. What does surprise us is that Ben Stiller is being eyed for the lead in a movie about the world's most famous male strippers.
Released in 1996 and directed by Ben Stiller, 'The Cable Guy' was a dark comedy that showed audiences a different side of Jim Carrey. The actor played Chip Douglas, a lonely and disturbed cable guy raised on TV, who desperately tries to befriend Steven (Matthew Broderick), but when Steven doesn't readily accept Chip's zealous and intrusive overtures, he finds that there are sinister consequences. Produced by Judd Apatow (who didn't receive credit for the work he did on the script at the time), the film was a moderate success and went on to become a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we're revisiting the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.
