It may have taken Edgar Wright eight bleeding years to finish the script for "Ant-Man," but with pre-production stuffs for the next Marvel franchise-starter already going down in L.A. right now, there's just no time to waste on casting that eponymous bug dude hero already.

So, since he won't be waiting 'til "The World's End," wink wink nudge, Wright has reportedly selected himself a fine pair of thesps from the Hollywood colony to compete for the big, thoraxy part: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd. Get More »

Questions and Answers With Tony Danza

We all know who the boss is at this point, but that doesn't make Tony Danza any less entertaining. The 62-year-old actor has a standout supporting role in "Don Jon," Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut about a Jersey guido (played by Gordon-Levitt, who also wrote the film) who can't stop looking at internet porn even when his girlfriend looks like Scarlett Johansson (literally, she plays the girlfriend). Danza portrays Gordon-Levitt's character's father, a muscled-out, football-loving senior version of his son.

The two worked together nearly 20 years ago in "Angels in the Outfield," but "Don Jon," which opens with an eye-popping sequence of sexy ladies in pop culture, bears no resemblance to that film's family-friendly fare. This is not one to see with your grandmother, folks.

NextMovie sat down with Danza in New York City prior to the film's September 27 release to talk about "Jersey Shore," Gordon-Levitt's acrobatic abilities and how to take direction from someone you still remember as a tween. Get More »

Sorry No One, 'Sin City 2' Pushed Back A Year

sin-city-300 Dimension

In an announcement that should surprise no one, mostly because nobody bothered to care in the first place, Dimension Films has quietly pushed back Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's blood-soaked sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," back nearly a year. Gone is its original October 3rd slot, and it will instead bow on August 22nd, 2014. For those of you really looking forward to a lot of shitty green screen and film noir-y dialogue more mumbled than spoken, this must come as a crushing blow. Get More »

'Don Jon' Trailer: Some People Love Porn, Some People Don't

No need to adjust your screen; this is not, we repeat, not the "Jersey Shore" ... although we totally get it why someone might be confused for a sec. There is a very "GTL"-esque vibe going down when the titular guido character in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Don Jon" repeatedly declares, "there's only a few things I really care about in life: my body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls and my porn." Well, alright then.

Where 25 Movie Stars Went to College

Admission Focus Features

Not all movie stars are created equal. Some are tall. Some are short. Some spend their free time on philanthropy. Some spend their free time in jail. And some secretly gave children up for adoption. Wait; that's actually Tina Fey's character in "Admission" — not to be confused with the real Tina Fey, who (at the time of this posting) has not put any of her offspring up for adoption. Get More »

8 Junior Versions of Other Movies

Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms in "The Hangover Part 2" Warner Bros.

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 »
