WARNING: SPOILERS, SPOILERS, EVERYWHERE...AND NOT A DROP TO DRINK.
Theater-goers who checked out "This Is the End" this weekend were not surprised to find a gaggle of comedy's finest playing themselves in a post-apocalyptic fight for survival — with Milky Ways. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride form the end of the world version of *NSYNC and try to maneuver through their sea of troubles with unity in tact. When McBride is banished from the group, he emerges later with his own army. A cannibal army. An angry cannibal army. S**t just got real. Get More »
It's official: Superman is back.
According to Film.com, the first and still greatest superhero set an all-time record for the biggest June debut in box office history, raking in a whopping $113 million to easily dominate the box office.
That was far more than the $20.5 million brought in by fellow new release "This Is The End." Not that Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and the rest of the comedy ensemble are complaining; with Wednesday and Thursday figures factored in, the apocalyptic farce earned $32.6 million overall, meaning it's already in the black.
For a full run down of the weekend's box office, including numbers for returning hits "Fast & Furious 6," "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Iron Man 3," head to Film.com.
Greetings from the apocalypse! You want destruction? This weekend's got MASSIVE destruction. You want egos? This weekend's got MASSIVE egos. Whether it’s the bickering Apatow Mafia or Zack Snyder pounding Superman's face into the pavement over and over it just might be the end of the world as we know it. Feeling fine optional. Get More »
Emma Watson wasn't the only "Harry Potter" star approached about ditching her Gryffindor garbs and turning into an a**-kicking, looting and otherwise just not f**king around survivalist for the apocalyptic disaster comedy "This is the End."
The Boy Who Lived himself, Daniel Radcliffe, also got an early whiff of the pic's script ... but he was quite put off by the foul odor of the then-stinker draft.
There's always been a lot of tripping in movies, and man, is it hilarious. People trip all the time. Why, just the other day, I had dropped my backpack on the floor of my apartment right when I walked in, and as I circled back around really quickly I ended up stepping right into ...
Oh. OHHH. That type of tripping. The one with hallucinogenic drugs. Okay, got it. Yeah, that type of tripping is funny, too. And hey, that's in a bunch of movies as well! Like, say, this week's "This is the End." Or so we hear. Get More »
Apocalypse comedies are all the rage lately – seriously, they're more common than Nicolas Cage movies right now – but in terms of originality, it's hard to beat "This Is the End."
The summer laugher, co-written and co-directed by longtime buds/collaborators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, features six of film's funniest joke-slingers (Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel) playing "heightened versions" of themselves on the night of The Reckoning. Better yet, it takes place at a Hollywood house party and features handfuls of celebrity cameos, many of which end in gory demises.
That leaves our six main players left to fend for themselves while utter catastrophe reigns outside of the house (Franco's) they've barricaded themselves in.
We ventured south last spring to behold some of the improv-heavy shenanigans on a soundstage outside of New Orleans, where Franco's Hollywood house had been constructed. Here are the 15 most notable quotables. Get More »
Your mother always told you that math would be important. As it turns out — and we're not just saying this! — she's right.
We just bet you didn't know that you'd need that math to decide what to see this coming month. Whether you're a new graduate hoping you won't end up like the dudes in "The Internship" and longing for your "Monsters University" days, a wannabe superhero looking for the hype on "Man of Steel," or a TMZ addict yearning for "The Bling Ring," June has a movie for you. Check out our Movie Math ahead to see what adds up for you. Get More »
Of course he did.
In the most recent installment of Zach Galifianakis' internet talk show "Between Two Ferns," the comedian asked
weirdo superstar James Franco, "Of all the art projects you've done, what has made people roll their eyes the hardest?" And you know what? It was a fair question. Franco has a restless creative spirit that often compels him to do really annoying stuff, like a "mixed media piece" for the Stella Adler studio called "Collage" (it supposedly combined dance, theater, music and poetry), publishing a book of poorly received short stories and hosting the Oscars.
While his latest project might not be quite as obnoxious, it is similarly arty and bizarre. On Saturday he painted a mural dedicated to the co-stars of his new movie "This Is The End." Franco even chose a perfect location for his new piece, one synonymous with arty nonsense: some random wall in Brooklyn.
It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »
No, this is not another April Fool's Day joke. Seth Rogen really does want to make "Pineapple Express 2."
"For the last few years we've been talking about what a sequel would be, and it is the plot we put in the movie," Rogen said of a possible follow-up to the 2008 comedy hit, starring himself and James Franco. "Whether that hurts its chances or helps, I don't know." Get More »
