You might think that Ted is just a comedy about a filthy teddy bear, but this movie about a filthy teddy bear made over a half-billion dollars and was nominated for an Oscar. It was, in its time, the biggest R-rated comedy ever. Need more Ted trivia? Get ready for even more fluffy facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
‘Ted 2’ may have the most relevant Super Bowl trailer there is, mostly because it features a cameo from one of the players actually playing in the Super Bowl. The movie features a cameo from New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and he makes an appearance in this new ad.
So that clears that up: You absolutely can drench Mark Wahlberg in semen in a trailer approved for all audiences. And you can also throw a Cookie Crisp into a man’s butt crack. Thanks for maintaining your consistently high standards, MPAA!
If Mark Wahlberg is pals with Martin Scorsese, then surely he must know that the director is pretty busy. Scorsese is currently working on ‘Silence,’ after which he has a rather ambitious to-do list (as usual). But Wahlberg wants to add another project to the growing pile of possibilities: a movie version of ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ the show produced by both Wahlberg and Scorsese, which just ended its run after five seasons on HBO.
The other day we brought you the not-so-shocking revelation that Adam Sandler is the most overpaid actor in Hollywood (for the second year in a row!), but what about the actors who made 2014 a great time at the movies? We’re talking about the leading men and women who aren’t necessarily the highest-paid, but who have brought in the most money at the box office—proving their successful ability to draw millions of people to see their films, sometimes more than once. It probably won’t surprise you to learn that your imaginary BFFs Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are at the top of the list of the highest-grossing actors of 2014.
The ‘Entourage’ trailer is here and it’s exactly what you’d expect from the cinematic continuation of the popular but divisive HBO show. With the series finale currently four years in the past, this offers fans their first look at Vince, Johnny, Turtle, Ari and the rest of the cast in quite some time. Have the past few years treated them well? You’ll have to check out the trailer for yourself.
If you took time out of your life to go to the theater this year and see ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ then you know that one of the better parts of that wacky film was Mark Wahlberg. The Boston native’s performance as a small town Texas inventor was just one of the exceedingly silly elements of the film, but he was actually pretty fun to watch. As it turns out, Wahlberg also enjoyed starring in a ‘Transformers’ movie, and he’ll be back for more in ‘Transformers 5’—but that was kind of obvious, right?
Mark Wahlberg has starred in a hefty number of effects-laden films—‘Transformers,’ anyone?—but the actor remains exceedingly well-known for a single movie prop. We’ll give you a hint: it’s from ‘Boogie Nights.’ It’s large. It’s unwieldy. Fine, it’s the prosthetic man-part that Wahlberg wore for most of the feature, and it’s the only prop he’s ever kept.
We've already seen the red band trailer for 'The Gambler,' which introduced us to director Rupert Wyatt's news thriller with a foul-mouthed bang. Now, a tamer version has arrived and it replaces the F-bomb poetry of the last preview with actual details on the film's plot and characters. Not a bad trade.
You can credit 40-plus years of inflation for the title of 'The Six Billion Dollar Man,' the upcoming big screen remake of the beloved '70s series 'The Six Million Dollar Man.' The project is in the early stages of development, but director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg are officially attached, reuniting the duo after last year's box office hit, 'Lone Survivor.'
