Back before he made fascinating films like Adaptation. and Her, Spike Jonze was best known for directing music videos for the likes of Bjork, the Beastie Boys and Fatboy Slim — the latter is of particular relevance here, as Jonze’s latest project is a wildly entertaining perfume ad evocative of his classic video for “Weapon of Choice.” You might even call it “Weapon of Choice 2.0.”
The fun aspect of late-night programming is the elasticity of the form; it’s flexible enough that really anything can happen, from a Donald Trump musical to a new short film from one of American cinema’s least predictable voices. Late Show host Stephen Colbert has a heavy rolodex, and he’s got the creative freedom to bring his friends along for whatever little projects they might feel like doing..
April Fools’ Day is an occasion marked by silliness. Many websites choose to celebrate by tricking their readers with goofy pranks. But for every one of these hoaxes that’s funny, there are ten more that are terrible (plus our budget would not allow us to turn the site into ScreenFlush, the #1 place on the Internet dedicated to movie toilets, for a single day).

Spike Jonze will put in an appearance, but rather than remain behind the camera, the 'Her' writer-director will play a character in an upcoming 'Girls' season 4 episode.
When we talked to Johnny Knoxville about 'Bad Grandpa,' he told us there would be a semi-sequel movie, and now there's footage from that film, 'Bad Grandpa .5.' Here Knoxville and Oscar winner Spike Jonze go to couples therapy as Knoxville's Irving Zissman has a sexual request that Jonze's Gloria doesn't know if she wants to fulfill.
Released in 1999, Spike Jonze's 'Being John Malkovich' starred John Cusack as a struggling puppeteer who finds a portal into actor John Malkovich's brain. The clever meta-fantasy dramedy was a hit, and earned Oscar nominations for Best Director for Jonze, Best Screenplay for the wildly imaginative Charlie Kaufman's script, and Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Keener. This year, the film celeb
You've heard a lot of talk about 'Her' being one of the best movies of 2013, but with the film only in about 800 theaters nationwide, there's still a good chance you haven't seen it yet and are wondering what all the fuss is about. Well, we're here to help!
