Writer-director Paul Haggis’ Third Person trailer is now available online.  As a treat, we’ve also got a look at the film’s international trailer, a bunch of character images, and the film’s poster.  All of the varied media give looks at stars Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Moran Atias, and Maria Bello.  That’s quite the cast that Haggis has assembled for his romantic drama that tells the tale of three interlocking stories of couples in Rome, Paris, and New York, familiar territory for the Oscar-winning writer of Crash.

Also starring Kim Basinger, the film will make its U.S. debut on April 24th at the Tribeca Film Festival.  Watch the first Third Person trailer after the jump, plus a bonus international trailer and a host of new images.

tatiana-maslany-orphan-black-interview

Season 2 of the BBC America dramatic conspiracy thriller Orphan Black sees Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) in a desperate race to find her missing daughter.  The wild pursuit brings her head-to-head with ruthless clone Rachel (Maslany), and Sarah, along with her clone sisters Alison (Maslany) and Cosima (Maslany), struggle to pick up the pieces of their broken lives while dealing with the harsh reality that no one around them can be trusted.

During this interview to promote the return of the show, the ridiculously talented Tatiana Maslany, who expertly pulls off playing every clone, talked about running on adrenaline to get through the season, developing the different clones, doing a backstory for each clone, how she gets into each character, the process for shooting more than one clone in the same scene, how this project has changed her, what it’s like to be in the public eye, mastering all of the different accents, taking everything to the next level for Season 2, how much fun she had guesting on Parks and Recreation, and how she’d love to work with Gena Rowlands.  Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers

Ice Cube Talks the Success of RIDE ALONG, RIDE ALONG 2, 22 JUMP STREET, and More; Says STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON Starts Filming in July

ride-along-2-ice-cube

With director Tim Story’s comedy Ride Along hitting DVD/Blu-ray this week, I recently landed an exclusive interview with Ice Cube to help promote the release.  As most of you know, the film stars Kevin Hart as a fast-talking aspiring police officer who must team up with his girlfriend’s (Tika Sumpter) brother, a hot-tempered cop (Cube), to prove that he’s worthy of being her husband.   While Universal was obviously hoping for a hit, I don’t think anyone expected the film to make $150 million at the worldwide box office.  But it definitely explains why the studio is quickly moving forward with a sequel, which is already slated for a January 15, 2016 release.

During the interview, Cube talked about the success of the film, why he wanted to make the project, the sequel, if it’s weird that he’s played so many police officers, what he recommends people do when they visit L.A., Straight Outta Compton (which he says is casting now and will start shooting this July), 22 Jump Street, doing a voice for the Guillermo del Toro-produced The Book of Life, the status of the Friday and xXx franchises, and more.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.

INSIDE AMY SCHUMER Does a Killer Aaron Sorkin Parody with “The Foodroom”

by     Posted 6 hours ago

Because Aaron Sorkin has a distinct style, he’s an easy target for parody.  However, that doesn’t mean parodying him is easy.  There’s still a cadence, a tone, and a personality to mimic, and nailing down those elements takes a sharp comedic mind.  Enter Amy Schumer, who’s probably about to break out in a big way.  She’s the writer and star of the upcoming Judd Apatow film, Trainwreck, and she currently has a series on Comedy Central entitled Inside Amy Schumer.  On the latest episode, she did a glorious parody of The Newsroom by resetting it in a fast food joint.  The results are hilarious.  It’s also great to see Josh Charles, who starred on Sorkin’s Sports Night, lampooning the kind of role he once played for real.

A new Walk of Shame red-band trailer has been released online for director Steven Brill’s R-rated comedy.  The film stars Elizabeth Banks as a news anchor who finds herself out on the street after a drunken one-night stand with no money, identification, or means of travel.  Her shameful trek across Los Angeles is fraught with misadventures as she attempts to make it to a career-changing job interview.  This NSFW trailer shows some of the hijinks that ensue during Banks’ trek, and it appears that Brill has taken the opportunity to pack plenty of talented comedians into bit parts that play into the lead character’s misfortune.

Paul Walker’s Brothers Caleb and Cody to Help the Production of FAST & FURIOUS 7

by     Posted 7 hours ago

fast-furious-6-paul-walker-set-photo-slice

Earlier this month, production resumed on Fast & Furious 7.  Filming had halted following the death of Paul Walker last November, and while it’s still not exactly clear how the production will handle the actor’s remaining scenes or even the overall story, they’ve announced that they’ve enlisted the help of Walker’s brothers Caleb and Cody.  It was rumored that Cody might step in and work on some of Paul’s remaining scenes, and while the announcement doesn’t specify how Walker’s brothers will be assisting the production, I assume they’ll be working as body doubles and handling wide shots where they’ll resemble Paul at a distance.  While the production could have just hired anyone who matched Walker’s height and build, I think this is a more respectful route, and one that will probably result in a better film since there’s a personal connection as opposed to a stranger stepping in.

Hit the jump for the full announcement.  Fast & Furious 7 will open April 10, 2015.

Warner Bros. to Release MAGIC MIKE 2 on July 3, 2015

by     Posted 8 hours ago

magic-mike-2-release-date

Warner Bros. has set the Magic Mike 2 release date for July 3, 2015.  2015 is already ridiculously crowded, but I have to admire a studio scheduling the sequel to an indie dramedy about male strippers for one of the biggest blockbuster weekends of the year.  Even better, it will face off against Terminator: Genesis, and while audiences are used to getting their big action fix on the July 4th weekend, I wouldn’t rule out Magic Mike 2 as highly effective counter-programming.  There’s more than one way to set off fireworks.  One of those ways involves cock pumps.

In a recent interview, Magic Mike 2 star Channing Tatum said that “everyone” will likely return for the sequel.  I hope that the movie is good and that they’ll be seeing a lot of laaawwwwwbreakers.

V/H/S Director David Bruckner in Talks to Helm FRIDAY THE 13TH Reboot

by     Posted 9 hours ago

friday-the-13th-reboot-david-bruckner

Paramount Pictures has found its director for the new Friday the 13th rebootThe Wrap reports that genre director David Bruckner is in talks to take the helm of the pic, which Paramount hopes will kick off a new Friday the 13th franchise.  The studio previously attempted to breathe new life into Jason Voorhees with a 2009 redo helmed by Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), but it never moved forward with further films.  Bruckner has experience in the horror genre having directed the 2007 pic The Signal and the segment “Amateur Night” for the 2012 anthology film V/H/S, so it’ll be interesting to see what his take on Friday the 13th entails.

Just as with the previous reboot, Michael Bay will produce this new film through his Platinum Dunes banner.  The pic already has a March 13, 2015 release date staked out, so if Bruckner’s deal closes the new Friday the 13th reboot would likely move forward rather quickly.  For those keeping count, this will be the 13th iteration of Friday the 13th since the series began in 1980.
