Brad Pitt's Got 'So Many Ideas' for a 'World War Z' Sequel. Great.

"World War Z" was pretty much just a big ole' mess — it took several drafts to script, cost oodles more than it was supposed to, had to be retooled by outsiders and even then it still didn't make a ton of sense at times — but audiences threw half a billion dollars at it, so of course a sequel is in the works. That's a zombie-style no-brainer.

According to Brad Pitt, though, the pedal's not quite to the metal on "World War Z 2" just yet because he wants to make sure they've got a few things straightened out before they go full throttle on the second installment to the Zed Apocalypse ... ya know, unlike last time. Get More »

Sure producers accept the award when a movie wins Best Picture at the Oscars and get to say awesome things like "I'll make you a star, kid!," but what the hell does a producer actually do?

Well, the answer is sometimes everything from coordinating the script's development, financing and hiring the film's director ... and sometimes doing little beyond having a famous name and giving a thumbs-up at the movie's premiere. However, we're sure the following famous folks, who have had surprising producer credits on a variety of flicks, were more hands-on types when it came to getting these 13 movies made. Get More »

This Couple's Movie-Themed Engagement Photos Will Bring You Joy


Weddings are a lovely time for any couple. But even the hottest pairs can't avoid the dreaded awkward engagement pictures. Forced smiling, weird hand placement and oddly-tilted heads make even Brad and Angelina look cuckoo-bananas.

So when Joshua (a photographer) and Rachel Watson had to take their engagement pictures, they weren't hungry for any awkward sauce. Rather, they decided to do something pretty epic: fashion their pics after famous movie and television posters. And yes, they win all the awards. Get More »

'12 Years a Slave' Trailer: Truth is Crueler Than Fiction

Get ready to hear the name Chiwetel Ejiofor a lot. Scratch that: get ready to learn to spell it and pronounce it too. Why? Well, with his starring role in the based-on-a-terrible-true-story film "12 Years a Slave," he's absolutely certain to get a load of new attention from his peers this year.

Ejiofor stars in "12 Years" as Solomon Northup, a real-life New York carpenter and violinist who'd lived his entire life as a free man (this is during the pre-Civil War American era, by the by) until he was tricked into slavery by a couple of gents promising him a job in Washington, D.C. As the title suggests, he spent the next dozen agonizing years of his life under the cruel thumb of one mean "master" after another — Michael Fassbender being the obvious centerpiece of that cruel collective, based on this trailer for the film.

The 15 Worst Accents in Movies Ever

Killing Season Millennium

So many actors have tried, and so many actors have failed. Accents have long proven to be one of the hardest things to hone when it comes to a film role. While Irish seems to be the most challenging of dialects to lock down, there are also other accents — even American — that have yet to be mastered in cinema.

Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents. Get More »
