Tonight's MTV Movie Awards got the tweeters tweeting — mostly to make fun of everybody, but whatevs, that's cool.
Fat Amy Rebel Wilson at the helm, zingers were bound to be zung. And zung they were. And they were. Who caught the lion's share of the interwebs' special brand of vitriol?
Well, since it's Hollywood, no one was safe, so we'll let you decide. Here are the some of the snappiest e-snaps of the night! Who said it best? Get More »
Looks like Alexander Skarsgard won't be beating his bare, chiseled chest while romping through the jungle any time soon — unless, of course, "True Blood" takes an unexpected turn for its sixth season.
That sound you hear is women across the world groaning in collective dismay, by the way.
Per Deadline, Warner Bros. is — at least temporarily — pulling the plug on the David Yates-led reboot of "Tarzan," which was set to feature "Zero Dark Thirty" femme Jessica Chastain as the dame Jane. Reportedly, the production halt stems from the studio being uncomfortable with the budget on-hand, but there may be a second lurking matter at issue, too: casting. Get More »
In the 19 years since "Pulp Fiction" hit theaters, the film that made Quentin Tarantino a superstar has become a bona fide cinematic classic. Hell, it was a classic from the moment it first screened at the Cannes Film Festival. But as a new oral history of the film in Vanity Fair shows, "Pulp Fiction" was almost a very different film.
Forget Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and John Travolta. How about "Pulp Fiction" starring Paul Calderon, Matt Dillon and Daniel Day-Lewis? Get More »
Samuel L. Jackson and Anne Hathaway are both well-revered Academy Award-nominated thesps, they both appeared in billion-dollar-grossing superhero flicks this year, and they both have bigtime Oscar bait movies coming out on Christmas, which is why it's all the more important that these two fight.
What kind of a battle are we talking about here? Wits? Fisticuffs? No, silly, it's an old school SAD OFF over who has the sadder flick, "Django Unchained" or "Les Misérables," courtesy of those fine folks at Funny or Die. Get More »
There's at least one Jedi Master who's once again feeling the Force of "Star Wars."
Samuel L. Jackson, who played purple lightsaber-wielding Mace Windu in each installment of the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy, is totally excited about Disney's resurrection of the franchise — and gives a hearty "Hell yeah!" when asked if he'd be up for reprising his role in the new films, according to E! Online. Get More »
In all of cinema, there simply isn't anybody as audacious as Quentin Tarantino. The guy doesn't just push boundaries, he shoves them right off a cliff. So whenever a new glimpse of Tarantino comes along, the only proper response is to drop whatever you're doing and check it out immediately, because chances are there's going to be something in it that will blow your mind.
Like, for instance, every single frame of the new trailer for "Django Unchained." Get More »
What does it mean to be cool? It's pretty damn subjective. So when compiling our list of the 25 coolest people making movies right now (somebody had to do it, right?), we accounted for various factors.
These are the actors who not only impress us onscreen (though that helps), but convey a certain genuineness off it, be it at awards shows, on TV appearances or during our own personal experiences interviewing them. They can be multi-talents, also excelling at music, art or writing. And they can make a habit of turning up in hilarious viral videos or even at your local karaoke bar.
But most of all, these are the 25 actors we'd really just like to sit down and have a beer with.
Welcome to NextMovie's 1st annual Cool List – and let us know who makes your own list in the comments section below. Get More »
This week: The biggest blockbuster of the year, "The Avengers," is likely to become the best-selling home video of the year as fans can't seem to get enough of Marvel's Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America teaming up to battle Loki and an army of hostile aliens.
Also new this week is the hilariously twisted Danish comedy "Klown," the thriller "Barricade" starring Eric McCormack and a collection of all 22 James Bond films called, simply, "Bond 50."
Director Spike Lee now has his torture victim lined up for his upcoming remake of Park Chan-wook's "Oldboy." Joining the cast for what's being described as a "small but critical part" will be the one and only Samuel L. Jackson.
Lee and Jackson have worked together four times before - in "School Daze," "Do The Right Thing," "Mo Better Blues," and "Jungle Fever" - but it's been quite a while since their last collaboration (eleven years).
Those familiar with Chan-wook Park's original film will be hard-pressed to forget the torturous revenge scene Jackson's signed up for - let's just say the tooth fairy has a busy night - but the film will reportedly alter it up a bit (per the L.A. Times, "it's [still] plenty painful").
Chan-wook's "Oldboy" was released in 2003, telling the story of a man who, after being kidnapped for fifteen years, finally makes his escape and has a very limited opportunity to get ahold of his captor for answers. It's definitely a cult classic in the thriller world, so it'll be very interesting to see what Spike Lee has come up with to justify a remake so soon.
Jackson will be featured opposite Josh Brolin, who's portraying the kidnapping victim-turned-vengeant hero in the movie. And what a show down it will be! We just hope the hammer is still the weapon du jour … We digress.
Elizabeth Olsen is also attached to star, and production is expected to begin this fall in Louisiana and New York. Composer Bruce Hornsby (who did Spike Lee's latest, "Red Hook Summer") has been tapped to score the film.
