It's every low-budget independent filmmaker's first thought after completing a movie doomed for film festival obscurity (or worse): Man, if only we could have remade that, but had like a billion more dollars and big time movie stars instead of whatever yahoos we cast in this thing. Well, dreams really do come true. At least if you're French-Canadian filmmaker Ken Scott, who got to remake his 2011 film "Starbuck" (itself a loose remake of a Hindi movie called "Vicky Donor") as "The Delivery Man," only this time bankrolled by DreamWorks and featuring a cast that includes Vince Vaughn, Cobie Smulders and Chris Pratt. Not too shabby, Ken Scott! The first teaser has dropped (courtesy of Fandango via The Film Stage) and while there isn't a whole lot of footage to go on, we still giggled. You heard us. Giggled.

What's at stake when it comes to the "Man of Steel"? The entire frickin' planet, got that?
The latest trailer for Zack Snyder's Superman rendition serves up one murky and otherworldly transmission to inform all the Lois Lanes of the world that their so-called Clark Kent is actually a mega-dangerous extraterrestrial by the name of Kal-El. Get More »
Jennifer Lawrence may be a prestigious, celebrated actress with inestimable talent and potential and yada yada yada, but let's not forget the important fact that she is also one smoking hot babe.
You might even say this girl is on fire, but that'd be too easy a "Hunger Games" punny, then, wouldn't it? So it's a good thing we didn't say it.
J.Law, fresh off a trip to Cannes supporting "Catching Fire," is back to work on the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" this week, so director Bryan Singer decided to treat his Twitter fellowship to a glimpse at the scene of her all decked out in blue once more. Get More »
The Wolfpack is headed back to where it all began: Vegas. Instead of hopping the next flight to the city of sin for your own version of 'The Hangover', you can pretend to be part of the gang, courtesy of NextMovie's epic 'The Hangover Part III' Prize Pack Giveaway! Get More »
Some of us just yawned and obsessed over the ticking of the clock during our far-too-long commencement speeches. Whatever maniac decided that so-and-so's wife's something or other who didn’t even graduate is equipped to send students off with a 30-minute diatribe on themselves is sorely mistaken. Just dole out the degrees already and call a day a day, right, kids? Unless ...
You know, every so often schools are able to wrangle in someone actually interesting to deliver a few notes of wisdom — some more often than others (cough Harvard cough). Even better, once in a while they're our very shiniest movie stars who make lots of funnies and deliver all the feels and suddenly the speeches don't seem so bad. Get More »
Well, all good things must come to an end, even in 48 frames-per-second. And Peter Jackson and his cast and crew have reassembled in New Zealand for the last few weeks of reshoots on "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again," the last two entries in his "Hobbit" trilogy that began this past winter with "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
This is it. The end of Middle Earth and all of the funny wigs contained therein. To celebrate, Jackson updated his Facebook page, complete with a selfie of the director and a particularly worn-looking Ian McKellan (in full-on Galdalf mode). Pretty great way to announce the conclusion of production on a historic film series. Get More »
When a movie is so good that it completely pulls you into its universe, it's only natural to wonder what must have happened after the credits rolled.
Thankfully, we've followed some of your favorite movies through to their logical next steps so that when you watch them again on DVD or at their inevitable 3-D re-release, you won't have to waste mental energy asking questions like "Whatever happened to that guy?" and can move on to more important stuff like "What's the meaning of life?" and "Who the hell ate my Girl Scout cookies?"
Check out the illustrated speculations below, courtesy of our pal Old Red Jalopy.
'Die Hard' (1988)
As soon as Patton Oswalt opened his mouth that day of production on "Parks and Recreation," you knew this would happen. So did I. So did your mom. Ask her. I'll wait.
See? I told you! This is why the internet's great. That rhymed.
Indeed, some anonymous cartoonist/video editor that you will never know made an animated version of Patton Oswalt's filibuster-inspired plot for "Star Wars: Episode VII," and the magic that existed only in our minds from Oswalt's dramatic narration of the film now exists forever on the internet as an eight-minute video. This is the world we live in now. Think about these types of things the next time you're nostalgic for the past, and boom it's 2013 again. Get More »
In real life, Claire Danes is probably a fantasmically excellent mother. However, her character in this new trailer for "As Cool As I Am" needs a 'lil help.
Fellow junkies of the "My So-Called Life" series — which, seriously, how in the world was that show just one season? — will remember a younger Danes as the sullen Angela Chase, dying her hair (much to her mother's chagrin) and desperately trying to find herself a comfy corner in the universe while hoping above all hope that the hot guitar guy at school might one day pay her just an ounce of attention. Ah, hormones.
Cut back to the present, and Danes is on the receiving end of all that angst ... and deservedly so. Get More »
