For those of us whose hearts still beat for Dillon, Texas, just the smallest word of the rumored "Friday Night Lights" movie is enough to get us cheering like a rallygirl.
Well, get ready, because executive producer Peter Berg just threw a bomb at us only Smash Williams could catch. Get More »
Sometimes, we journalists just have to go for the jugular.
So, when we were given the opportunity to have a quick chat with actor Alexander Skarsgard and director Peter Berg as they checked out the Hasbro toys being released in time for their movie, "Battleship," we had to take it.
After discussing how the "True Blood" star and "Friday Night Lights" director got involved in a movie based on a board game (Berg approached the studio about his love of the Navy and wanting to do an event movie and Skarsgard was in the Swedish Navy and wanted to work with Pete – see their full answer in the video below), we asked the thing on everyone's mind:
Who would win in an epic battle, the aliens from "Battleship" or the vampires from "True Blood?" Get More »
Who says Hollywood doesn't know sports? With Super Bowl XLVI just days away, many in the movie biz are showing their true colors in preparation for the big game. But the fandom elevates when two storied teams like the New York Giants and the New England Patriots face off.
Here, we take a look at 10 die-hard celebrity fans for each team. Based on this study alone, the Patriots fans may be better-looking; but if a fight were to break out at the bar this weekend, we'd want these Giants fans to have our back.
Goodness gracious great metal balls of fire!
Just when you thought you'd seen every mode of alien attack, we get death by glowing metal ball. Cool.
The brand-spankin' new trailer (courtesy of Apple) for Universal's über-risky summer tentpole has extraterrestrial mayhem up the wazoo, but is it the "Battleship" we remember so fondly from third grade free play? You can just hear the executives at Hasbro begging director Peter Berg, "PLEASE make this as much like 'Transformers' as humanly possible." Get More »
"B-4… Hit, J-1… Ha! Missed, J-10… Aww, you sunk my battleship!"
The big screen adaptation of Milton Bradley/Hasbro's game of strategy and putting pegs into tiny plastic ships has managed some rough waters, and studio Universal even contemplated pulling the plug at one point due to it's lack of stars and the inevitable troubles that come from shooting on the ocean.
Don't hit the showers yet, football fans. Just because "Friday Night Lights" was a movie before it was a TV show (and a book before that!) doesn't mean it won't be headed back to the big screen.
Once again, a little birdie named Twitter is the source for our excitement. According to a Tweet from Grantland's EiC Bill Simmons, writer/director Peter Berg already has plans for a movie. TV Line's Michael Ausiello checked out the story and says it holds water. Get More »
Sure, we were all joking about the films being fast-tracked through Hollywood once Osama bin Laden was forcibly shoved off this mortal coil, but the joke is on us.
Director Peter Berg is putting his "Friday Night Lights" star Taylor Kitsch front and center in a tale that's sure to give audiences that special "America! Hell yeah!" tingle in their loins once again.
Now that Kitsch is done sinking his "Battleship" with Berg, he's going to take on a meaty role in the adaptation of "Lone Survivor," based on the memoir by Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell. Luttrell was the sole survivor of his team after a mission to find and eliminate an al-Qaida leader went horribly awry. Get More »
