As the trailer says, mankind isn't ready for Scarlett Johansson's Lucy, and judging by the powers she's tossing around (both with her brain and her body) in Luc Besson's latest sci-fi action thriller, that's pretty accurate. Johansson steps out of the Marvel movie universe and finally gets some superpowers of her own, and she does not look like a lady you want to mess with.
We've been keeping you guys updated on the status of a new Pee-wee Herman movie courtesy of Pee-wee star and creator Paul Reubens over the course of the last couple of years, but now producer Judd Apatow brings us an update himself. While it was previously rumored that Apatow would direct the new film, the funny guy's been keeping busy, but he assures us that the new Pee-wee project is definitely still in the works -- with a script and everything!
Sad news today: beloved character actor James Rebhorn, who most recently starred on Showtime's 'Homeland' as Carrie Mathison's father, has passed away at the age of 65. Rebhorn, who also recently appeared on 'White Collar' and is known for roles on 'Seinfeld' and in 'Scent of a Woman,' passed on Friday afternoon.
Seven years after the end of the television series, 'Veronica Mars' returns with a full-length feature film (thanks in part to a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign), reuniting star Kristen Bell with all of those familiar faces for a brand new mystery that hits pretty close to home for the former teen detective -- this case hits right in the middle of her hometown, in fact, dragging her back from her new life in New York for one last job ... or is it? Both old school fans and newbies alike will find plenty to love in Rob Thomas' 'Veronica Mars' movie, which blends the series' particular brand of wry humor with an exciting new mystery, familiar faces, and some new blood.
With production on the new 'Terminator' reboot set to begin this April and original Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger set to make his return, we've been anxious to hear more details -- and while we still don't know any specifics, we know this: Schwarzenegger himself has seen the script for the film, and he definitely approves.
While we're all gearing up for the 2014 Academy Awards, there's a different sort of long-standing awards tradition that took place over the weekend: the Razzie Awards, which honors the best of the worst in film in each year. And this year M. Night Shyamalan and Will Smith's 'After Earth' and the celeb-heavy ensemble anthology comedy 'Movie 43' took home the most prizes with three awards each.
With Seth MacFarlane's 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' hitting theaters relatively soon, the director is wasting no time getting to work on 'Ted 2,' the follow-up to his live-action directorial debut featuring Mark Wahlberg and MacFarlane himself as the voice of the lovable, foulmouthed teddy bear. Today brings news that the film has made its latest casting acquisition, and MacFarlane is keeping things close to home: Amanda Seyfried, who also stars in 'A Million Ways,' signed on for the female lead in 'Ted 2.'
Those who tuned into NBC's live coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi tonight were greeted with a little something extra from the network: during a commercial break, NBC teased the return of 'Heroes,' the television series created by Tim Kring, which ended in 2010. The new standalone series is appropriately titled 'Heroes Reborn,' as teased when the word "Reborn" flashed under the classic logo during the special promo.
The first preview for Angelina Jolie's latest directorial effort, 'Unbroken,' premiered during the 2014 Winter Olympics today -- appropriate, as the story of her latest film follows an Olympian who tragically becomes a prisoner of war during World War II. And it looks to be pretty inspirational stuff from the sophomore director and A-list actress, whose debut film, 'In the Land of Blood and Honey,' also told a harrowing and inspirational story.
You're going to be seeing a whole lot of Tom Hardy in the coming year, as the actor has been attached to various projects over the course of the last couple of years -- one such project was 'Locke,' a thriller that premiered last year at the Venice film festival and is already garnering excellent early reviews. Lionsgate UK has released the first official trailer for this minimalist flick starring Hardy on a long solo drive, and it seems intriguing, to say the least.
John Travolta is now fully immersed in the "Eh, why the hell not?" phase of his career: the actor has signed on to play a Gummy Bear in the upcoming 'Gummy Bear' film, also known as Gummibar in the US. The project is based on the ever-growing and increasingly popular social media phenomenon, according to a press release sent out this weekend.
Shia LaBeouf continued his insane public antics this weekend at the German premiere of Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac,' appearing with a paper bag on his head and refusing to show his face to photographers snapping pictures -- and that's not all. The actor also plagiarized (yet again) part of a speech before storming out of the press conference for the film after the very first question. Guys, Shia really isn't famous anymore -- haven't you heard?
