So what would happen if you took "The Hangover" and replaced Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper with some of the greatest actors of the last half century? Well, as this new clip from Yahoo! Movies shows, you'd have the first trailer for the upcoming comedy "Last Vegas," that's what.
We can't wait to see what blatantly derivative "idea" Hollywood comes up with next.
Not that "Last Vegas" looks bad. Actually, it looks kind of interesting, based solely on the fact that it features Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline as a geriatric wolfpack out for one last weekend of crazy times before the old folks home comes to get them. Their excuse for their trip to Vegas? Bachelor party, naturally. Get More »
This week: The romantic comedy gets an Oscar-winning upgrade with "Silver Linings Playbook," starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro.
Also new this week is Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in the police drama "Broken City," Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand in the road-trip comedy "The Guilt Trip" and the coming-of-age rock 'n' roll drama "Not Fade Away." Get More »
David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" was a B.F.D. during this year's awards season, not just because it made Jennifer Lawrence a giant star — with meme fare to prove it — but also because it drew out all the feels.
With the eight-time Oscar-nominated flick poised to hit DVD next week, MTV now presents this exclusive glimpse at the film's alternate ending. In the new scene, the off-kilter little family unit's leader, Robert De Niro's obsessive Pat Sr., is having an outright conniption over the very presence of a Vikings shirt in his Eagles-only abode. The nerve of some people. Get More »
Yes, Viginia, this is what pure joy looks like. Robert De Niro, meet Lil Bub. Lil Bub, meet our good friend Bobby.
The internet's most famous genetically mutated cat and the Tribeca Film Festival's most famous founder (and noted softy) shook paws at the festival's Director's Brunch Tuesday afternoon. From what we can see, the two got along famously. (Get it?) And correct us if we're wrong, but is Bobby trying to make Bubface? Get More »
Doing an animated film must be an absolute blast for an actor. Show up in your pajamas. No time in hair and makeup. Don't shave your fu manchu. All that the film's producers need is your voice — your sweet, golden, $20-million-a-picture pipes.
For some actors, however, that's a problem. It's no one's fault; in fact, it's often a testament to their on-screen success with other endeavors. But there are a certain group of thespians whose voices are just too damn distinct to hide behind a cartoon character. They might deliver a fine performance, but it just doesn't quite work because we all know their voice so well. Get More »
Steve Buscemi is a Golden Globe-winning thespian responsible for such indelible characters as Nucky Thompson on "Boardwalk Empire," Carl Showalter in "Fargo" and Mr. Pink in "Reservoir Dogs." He's a serious man who makes serious films. And so it's only natural that this week he's about to co-star in his latest gritty drama: "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone"? Get More »

Okay folks, it's crunch time. Have you submitted your Oscar ballot yet? There's big money on the line (at least a hundy we hope, right?).
As we do every year on NextMovie, we're handicapping the Oscar races to give you a leg up on your friends, family and coworkers when entering your high-stakes pool, which as we all know is as much about the glory as the greenbacks (freaking Al from finance still hasn't gotten that smirk off of his face for calling Cotillard over Christie in 2008; get over yourself, Al).
Our usual disclaimers: We do not condone gambling, unless you're in Vegas or on a reservation. Good luck!
(And for a trusty second opinion, check out Joe Reid's Oscar predictions on Film.com.)
When we think of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and its annual televised Golden Globes ceremony, we think of class, dignity, decorum, integrity and above all, sobriety.
Also: It's Opposite Day.
As co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler look to follow in Ricky Gervais' wake at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards this Sunday, January 13, we take a look back at the over-the-top milestones of shocking behavior we've come to expect from our beloved Globes.
This week: Sacha Baron Cohen plays a North African dictator who comes to America in the joyfully offensive comedy "The Dictator," also starring Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley.
Also new this week is 50 Cent teaming up with Robert De Niro in the crime thriller "Freelancers," the award-winning Iranian drama "A Separation," the Disneynature documentary "Chimpanzee" and the Blu-ray debut of "Good Will Hunting" with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Get More »
You can pretty much always tell a good rom-com from a bad rom-com just by looking at the cast. After all, most of these things have some preposterous plot contrivance and then a bunch of life lessons, so it's not the story that's going to make a film original, it's the performances.
