If you’ve seen a Batman movie, you can tell that rubber suit is heavy. It’s obvious by the way the actors lumber around in that thing. But did you know that George Clooney’s Bat-suit in Batman & Robin weighed 90 pounds? The cape alone tipped the scales at 40 pounds. The thing was so hard to get in and out of that George Clooney urinated inside it on more than one occasion when nature called. Holy incontinence, Batman! That’s just one of the facts that’s guaranteed not to piss you off in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
Uma Thurman‘s one-scene appearance in Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac may be the most memorable moment in a film already chockablock with delights. (Fizzled-out threeways! Pitiless spanking! Getting peed on by Shia LaBeouf!) In the chapter simply titled “Mrs. H,” she arrives to find her husband in flagrante delicto with our gal Joe and proceeds to lose her dang mind, screaming her lungs out and bellowing for her children to come see their father in the whoring bed. It‘s an over-the-top moment that starts sad, progresses into discomfort, and ends with cruel hilarity — and it looks like Thurman may deliver more of that unhinged go-for-broke acting sometime soon.
There are lots of product placements that would make sense in a movie about the world of fine dining like Burnt.
Released in 1997, 'Gattaca' imagines a future society in which technology is used to create perfect children without genetic defects. Ethan Hawke plays Vincent Freeman, a man born outside of the program who dreams of overcoming his defects to travel to outer space. With a supporting cast that includes Uma Thurman and Jude Law, and director Andrew Niccol (who would go on to direct recent sci-fi films 'In Time' and 'The Host'), 'Gattaca' was unfortunately not a box office success, but gained a following on home release for its inventive depiction of a dystopian future society. Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast of this sci-fi favorite and see what they're up to now.
If the title didn't already tip you off, Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' might be one of the most provocative films of recent memory. After all, this is the film for which Shia LaBeouf said he'll actually have sex on camera. But now 14 new posters have been released, and they make no attempt at toning it down. So be prepared ...
You may not have heard much about 'Playing for Keeps,' but we've got the first trailer and some new stills to clue you in to the new film starring Gerard Butler as a man who needs to get his act together in order to be a better father and a better man.
'Kill Bill, Vo. 1' will live on in movie infamy as being one of Quentin Tarantino's most kick-ass works of cinema. Uma Thurman became that one woman every guy would leave their wives for and who every wife would turn into if their men left them for Uma. It was the hack-and-slash movie of 2003, but it was only recently that some brand new behind-the-scenes photos were released to the world.
Move over, Lindsay Lohan! Step aside Michelle Williams! Our first look at Uma Thurman as Marilyn Monroe on NBC's "Smash" makes us wonder if the movie-turned-TV star wasn't born to play the iconic blonde bombshell.
