Julia Stiles has proven she can handle pretty much any genre. She ruled the teen rom-com scene with "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Save the Last Dance." She took action as Matt Damon's co-star in the fast-paced "Bourne" series. She was perfect as the horrified mother of one creepy kid named Damien in "The Omen." But now Stiles is taking on one genre she wasn't even aware existed: apocalypse comedies.
In her latest film, "It's a Disaster" directed by Todd Berger, available now in VOD and in theaters April 12, four couples meeting for Sunday brunch find themselves stranded together when they receive news that the world is ending. Stiles plays Tracy, a doctor who's introducing her new boyfriend Glen (David Cross) to her three best friends and their significant others. While her biggest initial fear is whether her friends will approve of her new beau, she soon realizes passing the friend test is the least of her worries at this couple's brunch. (Check out the film at its official site.)
NextMovie sat down with Stiles in her hometown of New York City to chat about the film, awkward brunches, and how a ukelele could help in an apocalypse scenario. Get More »
Okay, so here's a movie pitch for you: Take a group of mismatched friends, send them out for an evening of drunken revelry and then watch the hilarity ensue when they try to figure out just what the heck they did. Guaranteed hit, right?
But we're not describing the plot of "The Hangover" — we're actually describing the plot of the upcoming teen comedy "21 and Over," which is basically exactly like "The Hangover" except, you know, with college students in it.
"21 and Over" is hardly the first film to blantly remake another movie, book or play for a teenage crowd; it's actually a longstanding tradition in Hollywood. So in honor of "21 and Over's" brazen replication, here's a closer look at it and six other films like it. Get More »
Evan Rachel Wood has at least one thing to love about life: She's just snagged the lead role in "10 Things I Hate About Life."
Although the title will throw you into a fit of nostalgia recalling the classic 1999 film "10 Things I Hate About You" (Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger), Deadline reports that this upcoming project is not the sequel.
However, the dynamic duo that brought us the modern day adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew," writer/director Gil Junger and producer Andrew Lazar, are teaming up again to bring us this Los Angeles-set romantic comedy.
The film will follow Wood's character as she plans to commit suicide, but meets a man with the same mission, putting at least a temporary hold on her demise. "Their chance meeting is so awkward, so raw, and so funny, they postpone their intentions and go their separate ways," said Junger. Get More »
Remember the 1999 blockbuster "10 Things I Hate About You" that launched the late Heath Ledger to instant teen-heartthrob stardom? That might be the question of the hour, as there is (apparently) a sequel in the works. Now. More than a decade later.
Seems a little slow on the uptake, if you ask us, but we're intrigued just the same. According to Variety, "Captain America: The First Avenger" beauty Hayley Atwell has signed on to star in this installment, coined "10 Things I Hate About Life." Now, we love us some Atwell, but something about her as the lead seems kind of … random. Then again, so does the sequel in general, so maybe that fits. Get More »
From the looks of it, the party at the center of "Project X" is an epic teen throwdown to rival the best of them. No wonder, since it's produced by "The Hangover" director Todd Phillips.
To mark this Friday's release of the sure-to-be raucous flick, we've weeded through some of our favorite party films of all time to pick the 13 best movie parties we wish we'd attended. From "Animal House"s' infamous toga party to Will Ferrell streaking at a Snoop Dogg concert in "Old School," one thing's for certain: These parties rocked.
If only life were more like the movies. Get More »
Your first impression of William Shakespeare may not have been the most exhilarating of your life. In fact, you may have wiped it from your memory completely -- though it likely had something to do with a school play, discussions of iambic pentameter (what's that again?) and longingly staring at the clock.
But don't brush off this scribe so quickly, because Hollywood has proven, time and time again, that this guy knew a thing or two about being cool. And defying your parents. And dying young.
So as we prepare to welcome yet another Shakespearean remix, "Coriolanus," to the silver screen, we decided it's high time you get thee to a nunnery your favorite movie-watching spot and revisit these nine Shakespeare-inspired favorites. Then thank your high-school English teacher for trying to show you that The Bard really is the man. Get More »
We at NextMovie don't condone drinking to excess. No sir. Nuh-uh. Alcohol is bad, mmkay?
That said, while watching people get drunk in real life isn't always a barrel of laughs (ever been to a St. Patrick's Day parade?), watching people in movies get drunk can be downright hilarious.
They fall on their faces! They say and do crazy things! (Bless you, Will Ferrell, you are indeed going streaking.) They're far more entertaining -- and infinitely more clever -- than your buddy Joe after he's broken open a bottle of tequila. Get More »
You may have hated reading them in high school, but, as the release of "Easy A" shows, some of the best teen movies have been adapted from books that sent you running for the Cliffs Notes back in the day.
Why? A good story is a good story, even if it sometimes takes a modern setting and some hot Hollywood actors and actresses to make us recognize one.
Here are seven movies (including three based on the works of The Bard) that started out as classic lit and became must-see teen movie hits. Get More »
