'Her' Trailer: Love Against the Machine

There's always that person who complains that kids these days are just so attached to their phones. Can't anyone just look up anymore? Must we be texting at the dinner table? I bet you can't even read a real map. What's so smart about smartphones?

That complainy phone-hating person is going to have a field day with this trailer for "Her," Spike Jonze's latest feature. Get More »

The 12 Ballsiest Movie Publicity Stunts

In this economy, filmmakers will do just about anything to boost ticket sales. And when they've already placed larger-than-life ads all over the world, what more can you do? Publicity, silly!

Since the dawn of time, movie folks have gone to great lengths to get people to know — and hopefully see — their latest projects. But it's no easy task. Now that film publicity is more common than ... well, movies themselves, the tactics have become crazier. Raunchier. Scarier. Really, just more of a giant, fabulous hot mess. -- By Christopher Rosa and Jacqueline Lem Get More »

Scarlett Johansson And Chris Pratt Join Spike Jonze's 'Her'

It was announced yesterday that Spike Jonze's mysterious new movie, "Her," about a man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his Siri-like operating system, would be released by Warner Bros on November 20th. And today it was revealed that two previously unreported, very exciting cast members will make appearances in Jonze's film: Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt.

It is unclear, of course, what roles the actors play (although it is conceivable that Johansson could voice the computer, especially if the settings on the computer call for "breathlessly sexy"). They join previously announced cast members Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton, and Olivia Wilde. This is going to be good. Get More »

Oscar Nominees Get Psyched, We Laugh

Anne Hathaway, Daniel Day Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones and Joaquin Phoenix are likely shaking in their boots in preparation for this weekend's Oscar awards. Well, maybe just Anne Hathaway. DDL, TLJ, and JoPho are probably taking it easy-peezy, if this video is any proof. Sketch group Barely Political asks the question, What do these cinematic overachievers look like in the privacy of their own dressing rooms?

The answers might not be what you expect (Daniel Day Lewis is in character! Joaquin Phoenix is potentially, er, "dehydrated"?). Or maybe it is what you're expecting: Anne Hathaway bawling like a fully-grown musical theater kid in the spotlight.

Either way, it's certainly entertaining. Just ...don't tell Anne.

20 Movie Stars You Didn't Know Were Jewish


Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"

These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »

The 10 Best Movie Memes of 2012

Cage Cats Cage Cats

Joaquin Phoenix would probably think our Best Memes list is "total, utter bulls**t." But we think at least a few of these may end up on your Facebook wall before you're done reading it.

There was certainly no lack of memes this year. From Angelina Jolie's leg flash at the Oscars to Clint Eastwood sternly talking to an empty chair, there were plenty of events and incidents that inspired madcap Photoshop wizardry. Get More »

Joaquin Phoenix Calls Bulls**t on 'Bulls**t' Remark

Here's a fact: Joaquin Phoenix's performance as a disturbed WWII vet in "The Master" is one for the books, a truly startling, revelatory thing of beauty, and it deserves an Oscar. It has to be, otherwise people wouldn't be getting their panties in a bunch over his quote in Interview Magazine last month when he said the Academy Awards were "total, utter bulls**t, and I don't want to be a part of it."

One person in particular is starting to wake up to this fact, and that is Phoenix himself, who, in a new interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, has done a complete 180 (okay, maybe like a 112-degree turn) where he says that he and Oscars might be cool after all. Get More »

Joaquin Phoenix Thinks Everything Is 'Total Bulls**t'


"The Master" star (and early frontrunner for a Best Actor Oscar nomination) Joaquin Phoenix impressed few with yesterday's revelation that the Academy Awards are, in his opinion, "total, utter bulls**t."

"I don't want to be a part of it. I don't believe in it. It's a carrot, but it's the worst-tasting carrot I've ever tasted in my whole life. I don't want this carrot," Phoenix told Interview Magazine. "It's totally subjective. Pitting people against each other ... It's the stupidest thing in the whole world."

If those sound like fightin' words, prepare yourselves for a long and bloody battle, because it's not just Oscars and carrots that Phoenix rails against. We've found photographic evidence that Phoenix hates, like, everything. Get More »
