I don’t know how Hollywood Reporter consistently does it. Gathering six extremely-busy actresses for a photoshoot snapped by Joe Pugliese and for an hour-long roundtable discussion must be a difficult feat. Reportedly, coordinating these six women began all the way in the Summer. However, I’m sure they jumped at the chance to be in the company of the other talented actresses. Plus, it’s never too early to start campaigning for that 2014 Oscar.
Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years A Slave), Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Amy Adams (American Hustle, Her), Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Julia Roberts (August: Osage County), and Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station) are all being hailed as Oscar contenders this year. The road to Hollywood success hasn’t always been a barrel of laughs though. The six discuss their scariest on-set moments, fears, sacrifices, the greatest advice they ever received and much, more more. Watch the video and check out more pics below.
I can almost guarantee you’ve seen the red band trailer for That Awkward Moment. It’s where Zac Efron shows off his juicy bubble butt while peeing horizontally. The 26-year-old actor also puts on a strap-on and accidentally dips it in the martini glass being held by his girlfriend’s parents. AWKWARD. That’s one COCKtail I want on my next night out on the town.
It’s that kind of predicament Efron along with his budies Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan experience in the upcoming Focus Features comedy. The R-rated film follows the trio who find themselves where we’ve all been– at that confusing “moment” in every dating relationship when you have to decide “So… where is this going?” The studio just released character posters of the cast describing a confusing moment in their relationship. Check them out below.
Better watch the trailer while you can. When the film uploaded a sex scene on YouTube weeks ago, it was immediately pulled down for being too graphic. The movie trailer is far more explicit than that previous clip and it’s still on the online video service. I predict that won’t be the case for too much longer.
Nymphomaniac recounts the sexual history of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after being found beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard). He brings her home where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
Lars von Trier’s upcoming sex epic premieres in Copenhagen on Christmas Day. The film also stars Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman and Willem Dafoe. Check out the rapidly-cut NSFW trailer below.
“Being out has never been so in.” Amen sister. I first wrote about G.B.F. earlier this year. With awesome one-liners like, “Are my arms looking Michelle Obama toned or Madonna scary?” and “You don’t even sound like the ones on Bravo. We can totally gay you over,” it’s Jawbreaker meets Mean Girls meets Clueless. The wickedly delicious teen comedy begins its limited run on DirecTV today, November 22 until December 19.
In a preview scene uploaded by DirecTV, Tanner (Michael J. Willet) is outed by his classmates. Social warfare erupts when three high school clique queens battle for supremacy by immediately pouncing on Tanner to make him over into their ideal arm candy. The three queens- drama diva Caprice (Xosha Roquemore), Mormon princess ‘Shley (Andrea Bowen) and blonde fashionista Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse)- force him to choose between popularity and his true friends which includes his BFF Brent (Paul Iacono).
Director Darren Stein assembled a great cast, mixing newbies with veteran actors. A few notable names include Andrea Bowen (Desperate Housewives), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Natasha Lyonne (American Pie), Rebecca Gayheart (Jawbreaker), Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s) and Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars). Check out the preview scene below, along with the official trailer.
Based on Mara Leveritt’s 2002 book of the same name, Devil’s Knot tells the true story of the savage murders of three young children in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. Due to the brutal nature of the crime, the community and police department were convinced the murders were the work of a satanic cult. Three teenagers known as the West Memphis Three were falsely accused of killing the boys and subsequently sentenced to life in prison.
Devil’s Knot first premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Acclaimed Canadian director Atom Egoyan helms the film which stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. The former plays a mother of one of the murdered boys, while the latter plays a private investigator. Mireille Enos, Dane DeHaan, Stephen Moyer, Amy Ryan and Alessandro Nivola round out the cast. The movie gets a wide release on January 24, 2014. Check out the first trailer below.
“At over 346,000 square feet, there is no sense of direction. No silence. Bad Cell Service. It’s way too big.”
Amen to that. While not clearly as vast as outer space, if you’ve ever been to an Ikea store, you’re fully aware how practically impossible it is to find someone you’ve momentarily separated from. When you factor in shoddy cell service, good luck. I assumed crappy cell reception only existed at my local Ikea. After seeing this hilarious spoof, I can see not.
Watch Alex Viola and Daniel Hubbard try to reunite in this Gravity spoof. With difficult furniture names to pronounce, low cell battery and the feeling of loneliness, Alex is frantic to find her friend. Spoiler alert. There’s a happy ending. Well, to me it is. I love me some Swedish meatballs.
My biggest regret when I visited New Zealand last year was not venturing out of Auckland to check out the Lord of the Rings Hobbit set. I was visiting the country for only a couple of days before heading to Australia and completely forgot about the movie tour. I would’ve given anything for a photo of myself hanging out in the Shire. Too bad this promo wasn’t airing before my trip to remind me that Middle Earth wasn’t too far away.
Air New Zealand, the official airline of Middle Earth, is giving you an opportunity to win tickets for two to the worldwide premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in Los Angeles. If that doesn’t pique your interest, they’re also giving away a five night trip to New Zealand which includes a visit to Hobbiton in Matamata. Check out the wicked commercial below. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13, 2013.
It was another big weekend for Thor: The Dark World at the box office, taking the number one spot with an estimated $38.5 million for a cumulative total of almost $150 million since it’s premiere.
The only new film among the top 10 movies at the box office this weekend was The Best Man Holiday, a sequel to the 1999 film, The Best Man. In this new film, the college friends reunite after 15 years over the Christmas holidays and discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited. The film stars Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, and Regina Hall, reprising their original roles from the first film along with the supporting cast. The Best Man Holiday came in at second place on this, its opening weekend with an estimated $30.5 million.
