The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young
yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »
The word "smurf" is so versatile. It's kind of like aloha, except you can use it to secretly swear at someone. So when we say that the first trailer for the upcoming animated film "The Smurfs 2" is just as incredibly smurfy as you might expect, well, we could mean pretty much anything by that.
Hey, it's got Katy Perry and Neil Patrick Harris in it, so how smurfy could it really be? Get More »
Ahh, the year in skin.
It's not the golden "Deep Throat" years of the '70s anymore, it's the age of the Internet and no one really goes to the movies to see nudity, but women proved they were hungry for some beefcake with the wild success of "Magic Mike." Meanwhile, A-list actresses bared it all for some compelling reasons that were absolutely integral to the script… hehe.
Here's our comprehensive list of major celebs who got in the buff so perverts could post screengrabs on Internet forums. Get More »
The little blue people have recruited three new big people for their next big-screen adventure.
Christina Ricci, Brendan Gleeson and J.B. Smoove will soon be singing "La, la, la la-la-la" (at least in their heads) as they've signed on to appear in the currently untitled sequel to last summer's box office hit, "The Smurfs," according to Heat Vision.
The plot of "The Smurfs 2" (which is what we'll call it until advised otherwise) hasn't been revealed yet, though certain Smurfy character details have emerged with the casting news. Ricci will be providing the voice of Vexy, an evil version of Katy Perry's Smurfette (we think we remember that episode …?), while Smoove will voice a "naughty" new character named Hackus and Gleeson will play Victor Doyle, the stepfather of Patrick Winslow (Neil Patrick Harris).

Looks like Robert Pattinson is taking a break from the Cullen clan and heading to Paris. Sort of.
In the new U.S. trailer for "Bel Ami," based on the classic novel by Guy de Maupassant (it was probably on your high school reading list), everyone's favorite vampire is spreading his thespian wings to tackle the lead role of mere mortal Georges Duroy, a penniless soldier seeking his fortune through the "generosity" of the city's richest women ... who happen to be the wives of the city's richest men. You can see how that could get kinda messy. Get More »
In "The Woman in Black," Harry Potter himself (or rather, Daniel Radcliffe) takes on the darker side of the supernatural as he investigates a haunted estate and the dark history that brought one of its former residents back from the grave for revenge.
The "Woman" of the title is kind of a pain in the butt, what with all the murdering and all; but not every similarly clad woman is quite so gloomy. Some of our favorite filmic females have donned a dark look for some memorable roles, no doubt bolstered by the fact that black is slimming.
As Wesley Snipes said in "Passenger 57": "Always bet on black."
Comedian Nick Swardson wants to go deep with his first leading role, but will his frolic on the big screen give him staying power to satisfy audiences? We'll know for sure when "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star" opens wide this Friday.
Swardson plays a naive, bucktoothed nerd from the sticks who discovers his parents were porn stars in the '70s, and now considers it his calling to go make it in Hollywood. And make it he does. Don Johnson and Stephen Dorff costar as seasoned pros in the skin flick business who show Bucky the ropes.
Adam Sandler produced and cowrote the comedy with the hope of making Swardson, in the words of Dirk Diggler, "a great big bright, shining star." Did he succeed? Watch these four clips to find out. Get More »
