Over the past few years, Zachary Quinto has established his acting rep by playing Sylar in Heroes, a couple of memorable roles on American Horror Story, and, of course, Spock in the last two Star Trek movies. So you could describe his transition into producing as, well, “logical.” Certainly it has gotten off to an encouraging start. Quinto produced director J.C. Chandor’s financial crisis movie Margin Call through the actor’s Before the Door company — the production outfit he runs with partners Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson — and exec produced Chandor’s Robert Redford-starring All Is Lost, which just screened at Cannes.

This summer’s We’re the Millers, a family vacation movie and pot comedy all rolled into one, just got its first trailer.
The movie stars Jason Sudeikis as a small-time drug dealer who gets in over his head when he has to find a way to smuggle 1,500 kilos of marijuana across the Mexican border. To make it past the officials at the border without suspicion, he hires a phony family to travel in an RV with him and the marijuana. A stripper (Jennifer Aniston) stands in as his wife, while a homeless teen (Emma Roberts) and his dorky British neighbor (Will Poulter) become his faux daughter and son.
Check out the fake family vacation antics that ensue and a filthy rich Ed Helms in the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
Cinemagoers in 2013 are experiencing a veritable (and biblically-appropriate) plague of apocalypse comedies. But only one stars Craig Robinson from The Office as the Anti-Christ — and its name is Rapture-Palooza.
The film — whose cast also includes Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, Rob Corddry, and Thomas Lennon — is being unleashed to theaters on June 7 and will also be available on demand. But you can check out an exclusive clip from the movie featuring Kendrick and Daley below. READ FULL STORY
Director Edgar Wright recently told this writer that his new movie The World’s End is “definitely in the realm of social science fiction.” What does that involve in practice? Well, judging by the film’s international teaser trailer, it involves Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, a pub crawl, Primal Scream’s blissed-out dance-rock classic “Loaded,” a bunch of sinister folks with glowing eyes and mouths, and a gag involving a fence which will be warmly appreciated by fans of the two previous entries in Wright, Pegg, and Frost’s so-called “Cornetto trilogy” (2004′s Shaun of the Dead and 2007′s Hot Fuzz).
What else could you want on a Wednesday morning?
The World’s End, which also stars Rosamund Pike, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, David Bradley, and various other notables, arrives in cinemas Aug. 23. Check out the trailer below and tell us if you are happy that The World’s End is finally nigh. READ FULL STORY
Zach Braff just became the second most high-profile film project on Kickstarter — and he wasn’t quite expecting all the attention. “I feel like one of those people who you hear the stories about, actors get woken up early because they won some award,” Braff told us this morning on the heels of the announcement of his next directorial project, Wish I Was Here, for which he’s hoping to raise $2 million through Kickstarter.
Fans of either Braff or Kickstarter will be quick to assume two things about the project: That Wish I Was Here is Garden State-y (or Scrubs: The Movie) and that Braff has only jumped onto the platform after seeing the massive, $5.7 million success it gave to Rob Thomas’ Veronica Mars. Both assumptions are both right and wrong.
We’ve seen Steve Carell do funny. We’ve seen him play crazy. We’ve seen him do awkward. But in Sundance favorite The Way, Way Back, Carell plays mean, and he’s the one picking on the awkward guy: his girlfriend’s teenage son, Duncan (Liam James).
The Way, Way Back follows Duncan through his summer break that’s rather nightmarish whenever he’s with his mom (Toni Collette) and her boyfriend, but has bright moments whenever he’s at the local water park, where he strikes up a friendship with one of the slacker employees (Sam Rockwell).
The trailer shows off a good chunk of Way, Way Back‘s impressive cast, including Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, and co-director/co-writer Jim Rash.
Check out the trailer, which kicks off with one of Carell’s toolish moments inspired by a traumatic moment in Rash’s real life, below: READ FULL STORY
It’s the end of the world. What do you do?
Well, if you’ve been kind to others, you get lifted up to heaven. But if you’ve been partying at James Franco’s house and, in Michael Cera’s case, smacking Rihanna’s butt and blowing cocaine in McLovin’s face, you probably won’t be greeted at the pearly gates anytime soon. Plan B? Camp out at Franco’s house with the likes of Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel, obviously. Because if you don’t, you could end up like Aziz Ansari, Mindy Kaling, or even Jason Segel … dead. Hey, it’s the end of the world. Celebrities die too.
In the new red-band trailer for This is the End, the apocalyptic comedy featuring celebrities playing “themselves,” a Hollywood party goes downhill fast after a gaping hole in Franco’s front yard claims the lives of numerous celebs. What follows is, quite simply, the end of the world, featuring four-legged demons, a very angry Hermione, and exactly one Milky Way.
Check out the red-band trailer for This Is The End below: READ FULL STORY
Richard Griffiths: Why the late 'Harry Potter' actor will always be Uncle Monty from 'Withnail and I' to me
The sad news of actor Richard Griffiths’ passing at the age of 65 has been unsurprisingly marked by headlines which routinely mention the Harry Potter movies. Certainly Griffiths made an impressive contribution to that franchise as he did a remarkable number of other projects, including the U.K. TV show Pie in the Sky and the acclaimed Broadway hit The History Boys, which earned him a Tony.
Ladies, let it be known that if you ever find yourself behind the wheel in a car chase with Channing Tatum riding shotgun, there are a few ways you can take advantage of the situation.
This morning we gave you action star Rebel Wilson on an exclusive poster. Now here’s action star Rebel Wilson in a new promo. Both are gearing up for next month’s MTV Movie Awards, which the Pitch Perfect actress will host.
The latest promo for the awards show, released today, is a pseudo-sequel to a previous spot that also featured Wilson and Tatum in hot pursuit of some baddies. But Wilson seems to be preoccupied with her pursuit of a certain hot someone else. In the new promo, that pursuit continues. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
