Let's not beat around the bush: 'The Monuments Men' looks terrific and we'll be completely and totally shocked if it's not one of the year's most talked-about films come Oscar time. Then again, we'd expect nothing less than a historical dramatic comedy directed by George Clooney starring the likes of Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Jean Dujardin and Cate Blanchett. The first official poster has arrived, making it pretty clear that this insanely good cast will be the major selling point going forward.
The final 'Monsters University' trailer is here and it gives us our best look yet at the latest film from Pixar. Although we're still not completely sold on this one (more on that in a bit), a Pixar release is generally a cause for celebration and animation fans will find much to appreciate here.
Well, that's a striking title coincidence. Just yesterday we heard the news that Amazon's streaming service had officially passed on the 'Zombieland' TV series, as well as musical comedy 'Browsers,' but now the network has finally given its greenlights. John Goodman's political comedy 'Alpha House' will go to series, as well as Silicon Valley pilot 'Betas.' Find out the latest from Amazon inside!
After the disappointing 'The Hangover Part 2,' it would be easy to write off 'The Hangover Part 3' entirely, but the fact that John Goodman's seemingly villainous character has gotten his own character poster is enough to turn us around. If director Todd Phillips had the good sense to cast the always great Goodman in the first place and his character is important enough to be the subject of his own poster, then we're sold. Bring it on. Check out the poster below.
'Monsters University,' Pixar's prequel to 'Monsters Inc.,' brings back Billy Crystal's Mike Wazowkski and John Goodman's James P. Sullivan to tell the duo's awkward college stories. But we get to go even further back in time in the brand-new 'Monsters University' trailer to see the moment when little toddler Mike first wanted to attend college. The only downside, for non-Japanese speakers at least, is that the trailer's all in Japanese.
2013's big summer Pixar movie is 'Monsters University,' the prequel to their hit 'Monsters Inc.,' and a film that we're a little nervous about. Some Pixar sequels are good ('Toy Story 2' and '3' come to mind), but then there's 'Cars 2.' But a new featurette gives us a little more information about the plot, and yeah, it sounds a little bit like 'Revenge of the Nerds.'
George Clooney has never had any trouble assembling an all-star cast for his productions. Indeed, why would he? But his latest is looking like it boasts the most impressive line-up to date. Don't believe it? How does a movie featuring Clooney, Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman and recent Best Actor Oscar winner Jean Dujardin sound?
Insert your own "the prodigal son has returned" joke here, but there's no denying how exciting it is that director Robert Zemeckis has finally released himself from his experimental motion capture prison and is back to making real movies. His first live action film since 'Cast Away' in 2000, 'Flight' premiered to positive reviews at the New York Film Festival and looks like it may be a big player in the upcoming awards season. But you're here because a new clip has been released from the film, so scroll on down!
That look. That probing, skeptical, disapproving look the TSA agent gives you at the airport as they look over your driver's license and boarding pass. I have never had a single reason to be nervous in these exchanges -- I've never tried to smuggle so much as a bottle of cough syrup onto an airplane -- but they unsettle me every single time. And this is in the United States and I've done nothing wrong: imagine what it must feel like to walk through a security checkpoint in Iran, traveling under a forged passport under an assumed identity, in the midst of the worst hostage crisis in your nation's history. If you're caught, you're dead, your friends are dead, and maybe every other hostage in the country is dead too.
The incredible true story in Ben Affleck's 'Argo' took place in the late 1970s and early 1980s -- but it plays to relatable modern fears, like our (or, at least, my) irrational terror of airport security.
