Released in 1999, Spike Jonze's 'Being John Malkovich' starred John Cusack as a struggling puppeteer who finds a portal into actor John Malkovich's brain. The clever meta-fantasy dramedy was a hit, and earned Oscar nominations for Best Director for Jonze, Best Screenplay for the wildly imaginative Charlie Kaufman's script, and Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Keener. This year, the film celebrates its 15th anniversary, so join us for a look back at the cast of the film as we see what they're up to now.
The first 'Sex Tape' trailer (the red-band edition, by the way) shows a film that reunites 'Bad Teacher' stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel with director Jake Kasdan for another round of debauchery. This time the couple get themselves in trouble when they try to spice up their love life with some filmed sexual hijinks that they don't know how to delete.
In 2000, former commercials director McG resurrected classic '70s television series 'Charlie's Angels' for a flashy, exciting and totally modern big screen adaptation. Featuring the trio of Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, the action comedy followed three ass-kicking heroines and private investigators who work for an unseen millionaire named Charlie. With the help of go-between Bosley (Bill Murray), the Angels must work to uncover the secret behind a kidnapped software genius. Thirteen years later, we revisit the cast of this fun flick and see what they're up to now.
On paper, 'The Other Woman' sounds like the set-up for a low key domestic drama: Cameron Diaz plays a woman who realizes that the man in her life is already married. However, the trailer for the film immediately takes this premise in a very different direction, as Diaz and the spurned wife (Leslie Mann) team up to take down the lying man in their lives.
Everyone is going to hate 'The Counselor.'
Ridley Scott's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's original screenplay starring Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, et. al. is one frustrating movie. At its very best – if you buckle down and really work to piece together the nearly inscrutable plot – you aren't going to come away with much. “Crime doesn't pay,” is the gist of it.
Say what you want about him (and we've all said plenty), Adam Sandler does take a chance every once in a while, as proven by his turns in 'Punchdrunk Love', 'Reign Over Me', and 'Spanglish'. When he wants to, he can challenge himself, and it looks like he might attempt that again with director Jason Retiman and his new drama, 'Men, Women & Children.'
Michael Fassbender plays a lawyer who tempts fate when he takes part in a drug smuggling scam along with some shady characters.
Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' is going with an impressionistic ad campaign so far. Highlighting its all-star cast -- which includes Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, and Brad Pitt -- it suggests a neo-noir as the protagonist (Fassbender) gets involved with criminal activity that could eventually destroy his body or his soul, and possibly both.
