Director Richard Linklater recently impressed with 'Boyhood,' the incredible movie that took the filmmaker 12 years to make. But one of his next projects is decidedly much different: a remake of 'The Incredible Mr. Limpet,' with Zach Galifianakis filling the funny shoes of Don Knotts in the title role. The project is drawing boatloads of talent, including Jon Hamm, Sarah Silverman, Josh Gad, and many more.
Tim Story admits that he wishes he could have directed his 'Fantastic Four' movies in today's superhero movie climate. Story is quick to point at more complicated villains like Ultron and Thanos and Apocalypse; their cinematic versions all being (we assume) carefully crafted for today's audience. This is opposed to his version of Galactus in 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,' in which one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe is reduced to being a large space cloud -- something Story explains was dipping a toe into the waters of that character, instead of going all in like he'd be able to do today. Story also discusses his thoughts on the upcoming Josh Trank reboot of the Fantastic Four, a movie that, if anything, makes Story feel "old."
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon and screechy-voiced comedian Kevin Hart both hate roller coasters, but the guys decided to face their fears together (aww) by taking a special spin on Universal Studio Orlando's massive Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster.
Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart are two of Hollywood's hottest actors at the moment -- Foxx takes center stage in both 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' (as the villain Electro) and the 'Annie' remake (starring opposite Quvenzhané Wallis as Bejamin Stacks, a play on Daddy Warbucks), while Hart has starred in comedy after comedy, including 'Think Like a Man,' 'About Last Night' and 'Ride Along.' So it's about time these two got together to headline their own film, and they're now in talks to star in 'The Black Phantom.'
Relationships are hard. Love is challenging. Friendships are precious. Sometimes people have randomly and abnormally large bathtubs in the middle of their loft-styled bedrooms. Puppies solve everything. And a romantic comedy is not a romantic comedy without dicing in some classic clichés, but at least Steve Pink’s ‘About Last Night’ proves that a plucky cast and some raunchy wordplay can punch up even the most tired of cinematic endeavors.
If you’ve recently watched Antoine Fuqua’s hard-bitten 2001 cop drama ‘Training Day’ and found yourself imagining what it would look like with a zippy comedic cast and a bizarrely convoluted plotline, Tim Story’s 'Ride Along' is the answer to your oddly specific cinematic dreams. For the latest round of big screen "good cop, bad cop, dumb cop," Kevin Hart and Ice Cube star as diametrically opposed do-gooders with very different ways of getting things done, even as they both rigorously adhere to the letter of the law.
Mr. DeNiro, there are other hobbies.
It's great that you like to keep busy, really. But gobbling film roles and saying “yes” to every single offer that comes to your door as if terrified there will never be another opportunity to go before the camera...this is no way to live. You were great once. You have occasional flashes of greatness still. I know opportunities dry up for older actors, but you must be selective.
Yahoo! has debuted the trailer for 'Ride Along,' the new comedy from the director and producer of 'Think Like a Man.' The film pairs the comedy duo of Kevin Hart and Ice Cube as two mismatched guys -- a cop and his sister's boyfriend -- as they go on a crazy 24-hour ride along through the streets of Atlanta. Ice Cube, who also starred in '21 Jump Street,' plays the role of the cop -- obviously -- while Hart is his foil, a big-mouthed rookie desperate to prove his worth.
Since Robert De Niro has been spoofing his mafia roles and tough guy image for more than a decade now, it shouldn't be surprising he's goofing on another of his signature roles (this time Jake La Motta) for a new comedy. In 'Grudge Match' he plays an over-the-hill boxer who returns to the ring to fight one of his toughest opponents, with Sylvester Stallone (playing on his Rocky Balboa character) as his rival.
