Disney created these posters to promote their new animated movie 'Zootopia'. The movie is set in a world where animals think they're people, people don't exist and apparently animal based puns are just a part of the language. These delightfully punny movie posters will remind you of some of this year's most popular films.
Glamour created this series to show women acting in the iconic scenes of some well known male characters. You can also watch Abigail Breslin deliver the stirring speach from Tyler Durden in Fight Club or Julia Garner explain how to drink up a milkshake from the classic finale of There Will Be Blood.
This clip comes from a behind the scenes documentary about all the Rocky movies called From Rocky to Creed. Michael B. Jordan turns toward a punch for the camera and ends up unconcious.
'Creed' is the latest movie in the Rocky franchise, this time it follows Rocky Balboa training the son of Apollo Creed.
Owners of a Rhode Island farmhouse said to be the inspiration behind the 2013 horror film The Conjuring are suing Warner Bros. because enthusiastic fans keep trespassing on their property.
Norma Sutcliffe and Gerald Helfrich say the film intentionally marketed the film as a true story and published the location of their home.
If you forgot about The Conjuring, this horrifying GIF should remind you.
The film follows real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren who visited the home back in the 70s'. It took in $137 million at the box office and was a major hit.
Court documents say the success of the film has caused a headache for the homeowners.
"The property was inundated by curiosity seekers and trespassers who, at all hours of night and day, come to and on to the property, approach and seek to enter the house, take photographs and videos, ignore the 'no trespassing' signs, fences, and barriers installed," court documents state.
Sutcliffe and Helfrich are seeking unspecified damages from Warner Bros., the director and numerous individual trespassers.
Actor James Franco stripped down yesterday on the set of his new gay adult film biopic King Cobra, and things got steamy.
Franco's production company is producing the film, which is based on the 2007 murder of gay adult film maven Bryan Kocis. He appeared on Instagram next to actor Keegan Allen, clad only in a pair of skimpy underwear.
Disney Star Garrett Clayton (below left) will also appear in the movie, playing adult film star Brent Corrigan (below right).
The crime at the center of the film happened in 2007 when Harlow Raymond Cuadra (below left), and Joseph Manuel Kerekes (below right) murdered Kocis, owner of Cobra Video.
They tried to lure Corrigan away from Kocis, police say.
Christian Slater will play Kocis alongside actress Molly Ringwald.
Do you want reboots? Because this is how you get reboots?
The enormous recycling center that is Hollywood is at it again as it eyes a move towards updating the 1962 film King Kong vs. Godzilla for today's discernible audiences.
Based probably off the critical and financial success of last year's Godzilla reboot, movie executives are probably looking to put that boot on a new foot and have a clash of the titans that's not Clash of the Titans.
In a movie move that portends a clash of giant monsters, Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull is moving his untitled Skull Island King Kong film to Warner Bros. This is being done to unite the property with Legendary's other giant franchise, Godzilla. In what would be a pretty epic pairing, the Godzilla sequel that is in the works will be followed by a movie that pits the giant ape versus the giant fire breathing reptile. I'm told this is happening very quickly with moves going all the way to Japan, where Godzilla rights holder Toho is based.
The last one gave us some great gifs, so maybe we should hope for more of those at least.
You know that old legend about the evil version of Santa Claus, right? The one they call Adam Scott.
They are finally making a movie based around the nightmarish figure that comes to take bad children away in Germanic lore.
Look at this nasty dude:
Movie advertising can be super annoying.
It can also involve lighting a drone on fire and flying it around.
While we're still not sure what we think about the new reboot of the not-done-well-yet Fantastic Four movie, we are sure what we think about flying fire drones.
They are rad.
The extremely cautious safety crew for this video pulls out a man shaped, highly flammable cut out attached to flying drones then zooms it around the dark night sky, looking like Johnny Storm on his way to the Baxter Building or to fight Galactus or whatever.
We're totally fine with this type of movie promotion because a.) It shows us something IRL we've never seen before and b.) It's probably better than the movie.
The worse thing about this video is how bored those operators look while flying a flaming drone:
At least they got into the spirit a little bit:
If this sold you on the new movie, or if you wanted to see it anyway, Fantastic Four opens Aug. 7.
It's like Hollywood is playing a game with itself to try and make a film out of the most uncinematic objects hidden in the aged wrinkles of western nostalgia.
And we're all losing.
PEZ, you know those cheap, terribly difficult-to-load dispensers that offer chalky, semi-tastless candy out of some recognizable character's throat, is coming to the big screen.
According to Hitflix
Envision Media Arts has entered into an agreement with PEZ Candy Inc. to bring those character heads to the big screen, with Cameron Fay ("The Three Stooges" 2012 movie) primed to pen the script.
"PEZ Candy is beloved by children and adults alike," EMA CEO and founder Lee Nelson said in a statement. "With Cameron Fay we've created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many."
Yes the inanimate devises that you collected for six months when you were seven will finally grace multiplexes everywhere. Maybe they will come to life and save a young boy from the sadness that accompanies his parent's divorce? Maybe they will team up and convince other toys who come to life that nothing beats motionless inactivity? Maybe it will be a 90-minute still shot of PEZ dispensers laying on someone's carpet?
We can only wait and see!
Warner Bros. wants to take the imagination out of the game.
The studio announced Aug. 3 that it has a script and producers lined up to make a new Dungeons & Dragons movie.
Mashable has the story:
The announcement signals the resolution of a rights-holders lawsuit between Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast LLC and Sweetpea Entertainment, each of which will be involved in the project. What it does not signal: any sort of guarantee that a Dungeons & Dragons movie will actually get made.
Warner Bros. has had enormous success with the fantasy genre, through franchises like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings — but those were literary adaptations with rabid, built in followings and established characters. Dungeons & Dragons, first published in 1974, went on to become the world's most popular role-playing game — but the cultural relevance of real-world RPGs went into staggering decline with the rise of video- and massively multiplayer online games.
You might remember that they tried this back in 2000 with a weird, lame movie of a thing with Thora Birch, Jeremy Irons and Marlon Wayans. It only has 10 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and dragged in a scant $7.3 million on its opening weekend.
That won't detract from the enthusiasm.
Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production Greg Silverman talked some marketing talk in the circulated press release.
"We are so excited about bringing the world of Dungeons & Dragons to life on the big screen. This is far and away the most well-known brand in fantasy, which is the genre that drives the most passionate film followings. D&D has endless creative possibilities, giving our filmmakers immense opportunities to delight and thrill both fans and moviegoers new to the property."
We should also not ever let you forget about the 1982 film Mazes and Monsters. Born out of the cultural panic that D&D would turn your children into murdering psychopaths, this gem stars Tom Hanks in his first leading role.
Oh, and it's available on YouTube if you have the inclination.
Were you getting bored of all these movies based on 1980s board games and thinking 'I wish they'd make a film out of something less cinematic"? Well someone has heard your dumb prayer.
Deadline is reporting that an emoji movie is already moving forward and has a writer and director.
In a deal near seven figures, Sony Pictures Animation won a three-studio auction for an animated movie pitch centering on the Emoji, those lovable round headed figures that are as much a staple of social media correspondence as adverbs and adjectives. The project will be co-written by Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis, with the latter directing the feature.
This move came as a result of a three studio (yes, three studio) bidding war.
Apparently, Leondis shopped the project around because he had finally cracked the code on what would make the most compelling movie out of slightly more fully-formed emoticons.
They just have to be reactions to things right? Or will it animate those faces or that guy with his head down:
Wired had a pretty good explanation for why you don't make an emoji movie:
His latest trick: a remake of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” using only 3 rolls of duct tape, 108 glue sticks, 18 large boxes of cardboard and two very adorable little fur balls.
So this is what happens when you leave your dog home alone…
It's Fox News' annual "War on Christmas," and former "Growing Pains" star turned messenger of God Kirk Cameron is fighting the good fight with a terrible new movie.
"Saving Christmas" was released in theaters November 14, and so far it's doing one thing really well - failing.
The movie currently has a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and on IMDB's "Bottom 100" list, the film is number one - right next to "Birdemic: Shock and Terror."
According to description on its website, the movie is summarized as such:
"An engaging story that provides a biblical basis for our time-honored traditions and celebrations, and the inspiration to stand strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season."
It is being called "The Room of Christmas movies". "Jezebel" says it is "another reason to kill Christmas." And the "Chicago Sun-Times" says "this may be one of the least artful holiday films ever made. Even devout born-again Christians will find this hard to stomach."
Despite the harsh reviews, Cameron attempted to save his own movie by begging people on Facebook to upvote the disaster on Rotten Tomatoes. he said it worked temporarily with the score rising to 94%, but soon the plan backfired and the rest of the Internet dragged it back down adding a whole new onslaught of hilariously bad reviews to rub it in.
