Colin Firth and Emily Blunt are two of the finest British actors to grace the big screen. So what happens when they come together to play two Americans taking on fake identities in "Arthur Newman"? A whole lot of random craziness, including carrying on sexual escapades in many a stranger's home ... not exactly the type of behavior you'd expect from an Academy Award winner or newlywed.
When NextMovie sat down with the pair, things got almost as fun as their antics in the film, which hits theaters this weekend. Firth opened up about where's the wildest place a couple could potentially get their groove on (while recording it, too) and Blunt squashed any rumors on her supposed love affair with Anne Hathaway.
Check out our video interview above with Firth and Blunt as they talk sex, lies and videotape ... and "Arthur Newman," of course.
Boston, you've had a hell of a week. This one's for you.
The great capital of Massachusetts has been trapped in its own horror movie upon last week's terrorist acts at the Boston Marathon and the subsequent city-wide manhunt for the suspects. Thankfully, it looks like the nightmare has ended and Boston can go back to being the greatest city in New England without serving as the unwilling host to those who would look to do it and its citizens harm.
As a tribute to Beantown, the wizards at Film.com have conjured this mashup that highlights some of Boston's great moments in the movies, with scenes from "Gone Baby Gone," "The Last Detail," "Good Will Hunting," "Legally Blonde," "The Fighter," "The Social Network" and many more. Oh, and Cliff from "Cheers" provides some Wikipedia-esque narration as well.
We think you'll like dem apples. Enjoy.
Who needs Ashton Kutcher when you've got Justin Long?
Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic, "Jobs," was supposed to open this Friday but got pulled from the calendar. And that Jobs biopic that Aaron Sorkin is supposed to write will happen ... some day. Which means that the first official (well, official-ish) Jobs flick out the gate is "iSteve," produced by Funny or Die.
Justin Long, who's long (ha! Funny or Die, after all!) been a slinger of Apple products in his "Hi, I'm a PC / And I'm a Mac" commercials, plays the Apple co-founder and CEO, with Jorge Garcia playing the part of Steve Wozniak and — in a bit of pitch-perfect casting — James Urbaniak as Microsoft guru Bill Gates.
Watch the trailer above, and watch the entire 78-minute movie at Funny or Die. And just think ... all of it actually happened.
If Disney is really going to release a new "Star Wars" movie every year, they're going to need ideas ... lots of ideas. Luckily, Patton Oswalt is here to provide enough plot points to fill a dozen movies.
Oswalt recently filmed a guest appearance on NBC's "Parks and Recreation" and was asked by the producers to just go ahead and rant about whatever topics came to mind (which is how most television comedies are "directed" these days). What came to mind was an intricately detailed — and, in many ways, rather brilliant — description of what would make for the perfect "Star Wars: Episode VII." And the new movie can't be limited to just the "Star Wars" galaxy, mind you — the film would have to involve a crossover with "Marvel's The Avengers" and even "Clash of the Titans." Obviously.
J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon — are you guys listening, or are you just sitting around counting the mountain of cash you sleep on every night and making Shakespeare movies in your back yards with your famous friends? This is brainstorming GOLD, gentlemen!
Watch it. Heed it. Live it.
If this doesn't get you to invest in a frosty cold can of pineapple juice, we don't know what will.
MTV's Sneak Peek Week continued as Aubrey Plaza and Scott Porter introduced an exclusive clip from this summer's must-see romantic comedy, "The To Do List."
Featuring an all-star comedy cast including Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Alia Shawkat, Sarah Steele, Rachel Bilson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, Scott Porter, Andy Samberg, Connie Britton and Clark Gregg, "The To Do List" is a comedy about close friends and a special summer project, loosely inspired by the real-life adventures of first-time writer/director Maggie Carey. Set in 1993, valedictorian Brandy Clark wants to shed her uptight image before college, so she assembles a to do list of all the "activities" she missed out on in high school. "The To Do List" will hit theaters on Aug. 16.
Check out the clip above and be sure to stay tuned all week for more sneak peeks of your favorite movies of the summer, and don't forget about the MTV Movie Awards, starting at 9 p.m. Eastern on Sunday!
Seth Rogen successfully launched Hilarity For Charity, an event that benefits Alzheimer's disease research. What does this mean? It means he doesn't have to do anything charitable again for the rest of his life.
In fact, the "This Is the End" star can now reset the balance of the universe by engaging in decidedly uncharitable acts, such as robbing convenience stores, not picking up his dog's poop and giving a little kid a cigarette. The possibilities are endless, actually — he can make meth with Bryan Cranston, indulge in a heroin-fueled threesome and play Russian Roulette with bloodthirsty revolutionaries.

"Calvin and Hobbes" is a classic comic strip that has inspired generations of fans, many of whom have used the opportunity to search for deeper philosophical and existential allegories between the kid and the cat. The team at YouTube channel Gritty Reboots have created a profoundly dark, contemplative fake trailer for a Calvin and Hobbes flick that brings to mind eerie modern noir like "Donnie Darko" and "Memento."
As the filmmakers describe it, "While growing up, Calvin's imagination always kept him sane. He didn't have many friends, so he created one. As he got older, he tried to leave childish things behind. But his imagination had a different plan." Somewhere, "Calvin and Hobbes" creator Bill Watterson is saying, "These guys get it!"
Next up: Gritty Reboots tackle "Cathy." Okay, not really, but we can dream, can't we?
YouTube channel The Picture Show has delivered its premiere episode of a series called "Remix the Movies" in which, ostensibly, classic films are "remixed" and given new life via different dialogue. The first episode asks us what really happened when Steven Spielberg worked with kids on the set of "Jurassic Park."
You know what? Maybe one of the kids didn't know his parents' first names. And maybe the other one did refer to God as "Chocolate Cake" in her prayers. Life was very different in back in 1993.
We don't know Steven Spielberg personally, but our guess is that there wasn't much room for improv on the set of the dinosaur-themed classic. But sometimes comedy asks the great questions, like whether Spielberg would openly value "the magic of a child" before calling himself "so f**king talented." We understand the guy's ego, of course, but the least he could have done was watched the swear words in front of the kids, right?
