Well, except the part when a person's toe snaps off and is then eaten by a dog. That's sure to be pretty painful. Get More »
Attending a 10 year high school reunion is a bit like a time warp. People are the same, but they're not. They look the same, but, then again, they totally don't.
With "10 Years" arriving in theaters this Friday and rocking a class list we really wish we were on — from Channing Tatum and Justin Long to Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Rosario Dawson — we thought it'd be fun to see what the actors were up to just a decade ago. Some of it might surprise you, and some of it you probably already know.
Before you flip through our pseudo-yearbook: If you're looking for a glimpse at what the actors looked like in high school, check out the official "10 Years" Tumblr (but we promise this is no less humorous). And, lastly, you won't find Aubrey Plaza, one of the other awesome stars in this movie, in this gallery. We simply couldn't find any photos of her that pre-dated 2006, but it wasn't for lack of love or effort.
Hot on the heels of Marvel's announcement at Comic-Con over the weekend that the upcoming "Captain America 2" had been renamed "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" comes this latest bombshell: Anthony Mackie is in talks to join the cast — and he'll be playing the high-flying Falcon.
Looks like the supervillains might as just retire right now. Get More »
It took Russian director Timur Bekmambetov to make a movie about America's most beloved historical figure fighting Transylvania's most dangerous monsters in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
Adapted for the screen by the original novelist Seth Grahame-Smith, it reimagines The Great Emancipator as a great decapitator of bloodthirsty slaveowners through his prolific talent wielding an axe. It costars Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, with Rufus Sewell gleefully chewing up the scenery as the head vampire in charge. Get More »
Big stars get the big bucks and big headlines, but today we'd like to take a moment to pay tribute to the unsung heroes of Hollywood, the folks who make the movies as cool as they are: The character actors. No movie can succeed without a cast that's solid from top to bottom.
And today, the folks behind the upcoming drama "Runner Runner" have recognized the importance of character actors, as according to Deadline they've signed Anthony Mackie to the cast.
He may not be a big star yet, but sometimes big things start from small parts. Get More »
Valentine's Day is upon us, love is in the air, and we are so on it.
Oh, we don't mean candlelit dinners and flower deliveries -- we mean romantic movies, in which every meet-cute and heartbreak has a soundtrack; and hot, sensitive characters say "I love you" better than your significant other ever will.
You know who loves romantic movies, too? Celebrities. From Channing Tatum to Christina Hendricks, these 20 famous folks name their favorites and give us some pretty good ideas for what we might be watching (again) this Valentine's Day.
Boy, with a squad like this one, gangsters don't stand a chance!
The "Hurt Locker" star will play Rocky Washington, a former LAPD lieutenant who went back to being a beat cop and is recruited by the elite unit dedicated to bringing down mobsters in the City of Angels -- with their number-one target being the hot-tempered boxer turned criminal, Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn).
Mackie's cohorts in law enforcement include Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling. Reuben Fleischer ("Zombieland") is directing from a script by Will Beall, a former LAPD officer himself. Get More »
Abraham Lincoln may have been a renowned killer of bloodsuckers before stepping up to the lead the nation, but he couldn't have done it without his lady friend Mary Todd.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("Scott Pilgrim," the upcoming "Thing" prequel) will play the voice of reason to the tall, bearded politician in "Wanted" director Timur Bekmambetov's revisionist American history tale "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
Written by Seth Graham-Smith, whose making a living revamping period stories with sci-fi/fantasy elements (he wrote the novel "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"), the movie centers on of a young Honest Abe as he battles vampires during the Civil War. Get More »
As everyone knows (especially NextMovie readers), vampires are the hottest things going.
It's safe to say that audiences favor the romantic stories with lots of Gothic gloom and forbidden love. But if "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" proved anything to pop culture, it's that we enjoy seeing the bad ones staked as much as we love gazing at Edward Cullen or Eric Northman.
"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is banking on all of the above, as well as our reverence for our 16th President with its big screen treatment thanks to Timur Bekmambetov, producer Tim Burton and star Benjamin Walker.
But every slayer needs a sidekick and a mentor and Deadline reports that Anthony Mackie has signed on to play Lincoln's right hand man, Will, while Hollywood Reporter says that Dominic Cooper is playing Abe's vamp killing teacher, Henry Sturges. Get More »
Hollywood hotties Rosario Dawson and Lynn Collins are the latest classmates to sign on for "Ten Year," a drama about friends reuniting (you guessed it!) a decade after their graduation.
Dawson and Collins join co-stars Jenna Dewan, Kate Mara and Anna Faris to round out the female contingent of the group, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Brian Geraghty, Justin Long, Channing Tatum, Chris Pratt, Chris Pine, Anthony Mackie and Scott Porter comprise the (somewhat heftier) guys' side. Get More »
