Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs talk Tinder in 'Life Partners'

life-partners-01.jpg

Some nights you browse Tinder hoping for a good match. Other nights you lie in bed with your best friend examining each others’ boobs. Or, in the case of Sasha and Paige in Life Partners, you do both.

Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester and Community‘s Gillian Jacobs star as Sasha and Paige in Life Partners, a film that follows two best friends and what happens when one of them gets a boyfriend, played by Meester’s real-life husband Adam Brody. It’s silly and heartfelt and a surprisingly realistic portrayal of female friendships.

Case in point: Sasha yells about how badly she needs to use the bathroom as soon as she shows up to Paige’s place for TV night. “Within your own friendships, you can just talk about anything and everything,” Meester tells EW. “Nothing’s off limits and you can be totally yourself and talk about all your bodily functions and all that.” READ FULL STORY

Exclusive: Chiwetel Ejiofor joins Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain and Kristen Wiig in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

The cast of The Martian is getting even starrier: EW has exclusively confirmed that Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sebastian Stan, and Mackenzie Davis are the latest to join in director Ridley Scott’s The Martian, due in theaters November 2015. They join previously announced cast members Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Donald Glover, Michael Pena and Jeff Daniels.

The Martian, adapted from the best-selling novel by Andy Weir, is about Mark Watney (Damon), an astronaut who gets left behind on Mars when his crew mistakenly believes him dead. “It’s quintessential Robinson Crusoe,” Ridley Scott tells EW. Drew Goddard (World War Z) penned the screenplay, and Damon and the rest of the cast quickly jumped aboard. “This is one of those movies that’s had a blessed life,” says producer Simon Kinberg. “Every actor is doing it for significantly less than their normal fee. It’s a real labor of love.”

Production begins in November in Budapest.

FIRST LOOK: George Clooney is a man out of time in Disney's 'Tomorrowland'

It never was, but is always near, can never be seen, but will always show up—although it disappears the moment it arrives…

The solution to this old riddle is simple: Tomorrow. But for those awaiting a glimpse of Disney’s upcoming sci-fi/fantasy adventure Tomorrowland, the answer is not so elusive. Here’s an exclusive preview of what’s-to-come from the deeply shrouded new Brad Bird film.

“We begin our movie asking what did [the future] used to be?” Bird says. “What’s good about the future and what’s scary about it? And we wrestle with those things in a slightly mythical way.”

Watch Nick Cave consider his will in this '20,000 Days on Earth' clip

Calling 20,000 Days on Earth “a documentary about Nick Cave” is both accurate and deeply reductive. Yes, its primary focus is a walk through Cave’s life and career and zeroes in on the creation of his last album, 2013’s Push the Sky Away, but it is so full of stunningly considered ideas and cheeky surrealism that it is unlike any rock doc ever made.

That was the point, according to Cave. “Music documentaries are often very similar to meeting a hero, you know? You love the person’s music but you wish you never met them,” he told EW during a discussion of the film. “They often do more damage than good, I think. They attempt to make the subject of the documentary human, and that’s not really what we want to see.” READ FULL STORY

Who is Marvel's angry, metal 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' madman -- and why does he hate you?

“Who’s Ultron?” This was what Captain America himself, Chris Evans, said at Comic-Con last year after finishing his Hall H Winter Soldier presentation and heading backstage to do some press.

He had missed the finale of the Marvel Studios showcase, which revealed the Avengers sequel would be subtitled “Age of Ultron,” with a plot centered on that fearsome artificial-intelligence whose robotic face looks like a grinning metallic vampire skull.

Given the studio’s intense devotion to secrecy, both he and Scarlett Johansson had no idea who they’d be battling the next time the Avengers reunited.

It’s okay to forgive them a moment of uncertainty. There are plenty of fans out there who have come to this fantasy universe through the movies, and not the comic books.

So here, finally, is the movie’s answer to that question: Who IS Ultron?

Meet the world's manliest Brony

Manliest-Brony-clip.jpg

Dusty Rhoades is a man. A man who eats red meat and builds motorcycles from scratch. A man who once worked as a “bodyguard/ranch hand” and maintains a very impressive, very geometric mustache. A man who discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn.

Take a closer look at him, though, and you might notice something just a little bit… off. Nope, you’re not seeing things: Rhoades is, in fact, wearing a “My Little Pony” shirt. And those blurry, colorful objects on the bookshelf behind him? Yeah: They’re pretty ponies with big, sparkling cartoon eyes and long, flowing manes.

See, Dusty isn’t just a man’s man—he’s also the dude known far and wide (among My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fans, anyway) as Dustykatt, a.k.a. The Manliest Brony in the World. And he’s got a message for all the nay neighsayers out there: “If this guy can like a girl’s show for what it is, you can, too.” READ FULL STORY

Nicolas Cage unleashes 'Rage' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

RAGE.jpg

If you’ve seen enough of Nicolas Cage’s less prestigious work, you’re probably familiar with a phenomenon known as Cage Rage — bombastic, almost operatic outrage and violence that can be easily dismissed or analyzed from an academic perspective. I’m talking about movies like Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call — New Orleans, The Wicker Man, and Drive Angry, to say nothing of the cartoon-y Ghost Rider movies. So kudos to the crew that simply titled his next movie Rage.

In a script that heavily evokes the recent spate of Liam Neeson revenge thrillers, Cage plays a man with a dark and violent history who gets pulled back into that world after his daughter is kidnapped. In the exclusive clip below, the Oscar winner cuts loose and becomes… Nicolas Rage. READ FULL STORY

'Dinosaur 13': See the trailer for the Sundance T. rex doc that roared -- EXCLUSIVE

dinosaur-13-poster

In 1990, paleontologist Peter Larson and his team discovered the biggest and most complete T. rex skeleton ever recorded in the badlands of South Dakota. Named Sue — after Susan Hendrickson, the woman who initially found the first fossils — the skeleton became a major tourist attraction for Larson’s Black Hill Institute. But in 1992, the FBI arrived with a warrant and the National Guard — and confiscated Sue, claiming that the scientists had stolen her off private property. It seems everyone wanted a piece of Sue. Over the next 10 years, Larson’s team would have to fight in court, not only for their right to keep Sue but also for their own freedom.

Directed by Todd Douglas Miller, Dinosaur 13 was a crowd-pleaser at Sundance, where it debuted earlier this year. It was quickly picked up by Lionsgate and CNN Films, and it will open in theaters and VOD on Aug. 15.

Nick Frost on how 'Cuban Fury' melds 'Strictly Ballroom' with 'The Bourne Identity' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Cuban-Fury.jpg

Nick Frost had a deep, dark secret: He liked to dance. Or he wanted to like to dance. One night, after a few drinks, he pecked out a movie idea in an email to his longtime producer, Nira Park, then went to bed. She called him the next morning to say how much she liked his idea about a shy, average-looking guy who resurrects his childhood passion for salsa dancing in order to woo his beautiful new boss (Rashida Jones) away from her doucheboat boyfriend (Chris O’Dowd).

“I think I’d always been a massive fan of Strictly Ballroom,” says Frost, whose idea became Cuban Fury, in theaters April 11. “That was definitely my touchstone for this film, in terms of the comedy has to be funny and the drama has to be touching, yet the dancing has to be smoking hot and real. And I wanted to do [all the dancing], so that was pretty important too.”

As the saying goes, be careful what you ask for. Frost, best known as Simon Pegg’s burly sidekick in movies like Shawn of the Dead and The World’s End, put himself through a torturous training process to become a suave lord of the dance. Tears may have been shed. Toes and egos were certainly crushed. But for Frost, it was all worth it. “I kind of really worked freaking hard on this and it was my idea, so to see it come out kind of exactly how we wanted is a real treat,” he says.

'Orange is the New Black' star Taylor Schilling talks new movie, 'Stay' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Stay.jpg

What’s the first thing you’d do after getting out of prison?

For Taylor Schilling — star of Netflix’s addictive dramedy Orange is the New Black — the answer was simple: Travel to Ireland and Montreal to make Stay. The meditative movie stars Schilling as Abbey, a young Canadian who finds herself in a quandary when she accidentally gets pregnant — and her much-older Irish lover Dermot (Aidan Quinn) makes clear that he has no interest in being a father.

“It’s really a character-driven piece,” Schilling says, citing what drew her to the film. “The story is important, but it’s really how these people are dealing with the consequences of their actions.”

Stay also has a few narrative similarities with the series for which Schilling is best known: “I think it’s a really interesting story about having to go back and reconcile your past in order to move on with your future,” she continues. “I’m curious about that. And I’m curious about those times in our lives when things can’t stay the same, when we’re pushed out of our comfort zones.” Times such as, say, when your relationship abruptly crumbles, or you get locked up for an offense committed nearly 10 years ago.
