‘Dirty Grandpa’ Review: I Can’t Believe How Bad This Movie Is

by Matt Singer January 22, 2016 @ 9:55 AM
Earlier this week, Buzzfeed’s Anne Helen Petersen wrote an essay called “The Shaming of Robert De Niro,” in which she criticized cinephiles who think De Niro should retire rather than continue to harm his legacy as one of his generation’s finest actors by appearing in subpar material. Such arguments, Petersen says, are “snobbery at best and thinly veiled ageism at worst.” Starring in films like The Bag Man, Red Lights, and Killing Season “might not be working with Scorsese for 10 years,” she adds, “but it’s not shameful.”

‘Neighbors 2’ Trailer Sneak Peek Teases Sorority Mayhem

by Britt Hayes January 18, 2016 @ 1:11 PM
As the sneak peek above suggests, we’ll have the first full, official trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising tomorrow, but until then, enjoy 15 seconds of footage from the upcoming sequel to the 2014 comedy hit starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. This time around, the pleasant couple next door are besieged by a house full of sorority sisters led by Chloe Moretz, who appears only briefly in the trailer, but seems to have been perfectly cast as yet another cold and calculating antagonist.

Get a First Look at ‘Neighbors 2’ With a Brand-New Poster and Pictures

When last we saw Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) things were finally starting to calm down for them and their newborn daughter. But calm doesn’t make good material for a sequel, and so for the upcoming Neighbors 2 (subtitled Sorority Rising, apparently), things are about to get rowdy again. At least according to Wikipedia’s plot synopsis. And Wikipedia is never wrong:

Priyanka Chopra of ‘Quantico’ Joins ‘Baywatch’ Movie

by Charles Bramesco January 12, 2016 @ 9:12 AM
The scheduled big-screen reboot of Baywatch has currently taken on the following performers: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Zac Efron, True Detective’s Alexandra Daddario, and supermodel Kelly Rohrbach. These master thespians have slavishly honed their craft over decades of careful study, schooling themselves in the minor intricacies of the Meisner technique and the Stanislavski method, rehearsing Shakespearean quotations, tongue-twisting their way through the librettos of Gilbert and Sullivan, and overall, elevating the very practice of screen acting. They’ve all immersed themselves in the work of the greats — Olivier, Brando, Davis, Bergman — and earned their roles through innumerable hours of rehearsal, training, and theory. Additionally, all of these people are phenomenally good-looking, though it would be a gross disservice to Ms. Rohrbach to suggest that she earned this role due to anything other than pure talent.

‘Dirty Grandpa’ Trailer: Robert De Niro Does Spring Break

by Britt Hayes January 7, 2016 @ 6:54 PM
Robert De Niro has officially reached the IDGAF point of his career (Harrison Ford can relate), with recent roles in films like The Intern and Heist, the latter of which you probably haven’t heard about. Okay, he isn’t completely off the reservation, since David O. Russell has been keeping him on the legit side of things with his role in Joy, but recent years have seen De Niro take a turn to the sillier, lighter side of things and Dirty Grandpa is his latest foray into the wacky, starring opposite Zac Efron in a film that sees the unlikely duo saddling up for a Spring Break trip.

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Baywatch’ Movie Tests Out Some Leading Ladies

by Britt Hayes November 9, 2015 @ 5:17 PM
We weren’t really interested in a Baywatch movie until Dwayne Johnson got involved — then again, Johnson’s name can guarantee our interest in just about anything. The upcoming big screen version of the classic ’90s TV series is also set to star Zac Efron, and has recently begun its search for some leading ladies. Paramount has reportedly tested a handful of actresses, including one that has some experience working with The Rock already.
