Considering the global success of 2011's 'Bridesmaids' (the film made nearly $300 Million worldwide), it's surprising that Kristen Wiig hasn't been courted to lead more comedies like her costar Melissa McCarthy. The news that Wiig is writing, directing and costarring in a buddy comedy with her 'Bridesmaids' screenwriting partner Annie Mumolo suggests she's ready to make another big comedy.
The 'Dumb and Dumber 2' trailer is here, and it shows that Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels haven't lost a step in returning to Harry and Lloyd's idiotic shoes. Sure, late in the game sequels aren't always great, but this suggests that the magic could very well be back.
'Forrest Gump,' which turns 20 this year, is about to be rolled back into theaters to celebrate. Paramount has announced that the film will screen in IMAX auditoriums starting September 5, and have also moved up 'SpongeBob SquarePants 2' from February 13 to February 6, 2015.
Steven Spielberg has been lining up projects left and right, but one might become the front-runner for his next movie with this latest announcement: Joel and Ethan Coen have been hired to write Spielberg's currently untitled Cold War thriller, which is tentatively set to star Tom Hanks.
In the second trailer for Tate Taylor's James Brown biopic 'Get on Up,' we're informed that James Brown (Chadwick Boseman) made it to soul superstardom without -- and perhaps in spite of -- his mother (Viola Davis), who only came into his life once he achieved success.
Ever since George Lucas sold 'Star Wars' to Disney a year and a half ago, there's been word of sequels and spinoffs in the works. But the production of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took longer to launch than expected, and so the effort to create those standalone films was put on the back burner. Now that 'Episode 7' is days away from shooting, Disney is beating the drum again, and have announced they'll be at least three new spinoffs coming before 2024.
With so many comedy hits of the past getting supposed follow ups ('Ghostbusters 3,' the 'Twins' sequel 'Triplets') it's no surprise that 'Mrs. Doubtfire 2' is being prepped, with both star Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus set to return for more cross-dressing hijinks.
Could 2014 be the year of the Kevin Costner comeback? The actor, who was in huge hits in the late eighties and early nineties, wore out his welcome with pictures like 'The Postman,' but after appearing in this year's 'Man of Steel,' he's got five starring roles lined up for next year, including 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,' '3 Days to Kill' and now 'Draft Day,' which just released its first trailer and poster.
Two days ago, it was announced that the revered holiday classic 'It's a Wonderful Life' was up to get a sequel called 'It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story.' But today, Paramount, who owns the rights to the original film and the short story on which the film was based, have said that it can't happen without their involvement and they're willing to get litigious over it.
Dealing with Charlie Hunnam's recent departure, the makers of '50 Shades of Grey' had to make quick work of finding a new actor to play Christian Grey. The replacement has been found. It's Jamie Dornan.
Now that Bryan Cranston is done shaving his head for 'Breaking Bad,' he can finally lead a motion picture, and it appears that the former Meth King of New Mexico will star in 'Trumbo,' a biopic about Dalton Trumbo -- the most famous of the screenwriters put on the Hollywood Blacklist.
