Joel and Ethan Coen's upcoming movie 'Hail, Caesar!' has not only landed a distribution deal with Universal, it's also netted Coen vets George Clooney and Josh Brolin to star in a tale of Hollywood and the tabloids of the '50s.
In 1998, Steven Soderbergh released the crime comedy 'Out of Sight,' based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name. Starring George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, and one heck of an ensemble cast, the film followed a bank robber as he's chased down by a U.S. Marshal and the two unwittingly fall for each other. While the film wasn't a huge success at the box office, it was a hit with critics and cinephiles alike, and has become a beloved classic. 16 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
In 1997, Joel Schumacher released 'Batman and Robin,' his follow-up to 'Batman Forever,' starring George Clooney as the caped crusader. That time around, Batman teamed up with Robin and Batgirl to stop villains Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) from freezing the world and repopulating it with mutant plants (yes, really). Although the film was a massive success, it garnered many negative reviews and is considered to be one of the worst Batman films ever made. Seventeen years later, we take a look back at the cast of the strange '90s superhero film and see where they are now.
“They don't make 'em like that anymore!”
That's what my old man always liked to say when we'd watch a black and white Hollywood classic. Sometimes he meant it as a sign of respect. Sometimes he meant it to mean, "Wow, that was super cheesy."
Before it was moved to 2014, George Clooney's 'The Monuments Men' was one of our most anticipated movies of 2013. So now, by default, it's one of our most anticipated movies of this year, and its February 7 release date can't come soon enough. To help whet your appetite, a few new images and featurettes from the film have made their way online, serving as a helpful reminder that ensembles don't get much stronger than this.
David O. Russell's 1999 film, 'Three Kings,' starred the awesome trio of George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube, and told the story of three soldiers who planned a gold heist during the 1991 Iraqi uprising at the end of the Persian Gulf War -- but things don't quite go as planned. With Russell's 'American Hustle' and Wahlberg's new war movie, 'Lone Survivor,' currently in theaters, and Clooney about to release his 'Monuments Men' in February, we revisit the cast of this acclaimed satirical hit 14 years later and see what they're up to now.
'The Monuments Men' was one of our most anticipated movies of 2013, so when it got bumped to next year, it immediately became one of our most anticipated movies of 2014. Although the schedule change has moved it out of potential awards contention, the marketing train has kept on rolling and the latest trailer takes a slightly more unique approach than the others, stylizing itself as a period-appropriate newsreel.
It's hard to tell if George Clooney's new film 'The Monuments Men' will be an Oscar favorite even though it's being released in the midst of the prestige season. The latest trailer plays up the possibility that this could be a real contender, but one thing is for sure, it's got a great cast that includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman.
