Sundance 2012: Angry moviegoers storm out of 'Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie'

Christopher Beyer for EW

The number of walkouts during a recent Sundance showing of Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, was almost as funny as the vulgar abominations of comedy happening on screen.

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, known for their bizarre comedy sketch show Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job! on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, expanded their gallery of grotesques and non sequiturs to a feature-length movie, which made its debut here in Park City.

The surreal (to say the least) story follows Tim and Eric after they lose $1 billion on a movie starring a Johnny Depp lookalike, then have to take over an apocalyptic shopping mall full of hobos, wolves, and losers to earn back the money. Bloodshed, sadistic bathroom humor, and heavy-duty nincompoopery follow.

At least one couple storming out of the theater actually hollered back at the screen. Heidecker and Wareheim could barely contain their glee at a post-screening Q&A. “What’d he say?” Heidecker demanded. READ FULL STORY

'Rock of Ages' new trailer: So cheesy it's awesome?

Behold the new trailer for Adam Shankman’s Rock of Ages musical, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Julianne Hough, and a nostalgia-inducing “Dirk Diggler’s name in lights” font. (Actually mis-typed “Julianne Moore” up there. Damnit!) It may cause seizures, but you’ll want to press play if only to see the TERRIBLE wig on TV’s Jack Donaghy as Alec Baldwin Month continues. Watch it here:

Did you know? Apparently, moviegoers don't like crocodiles.

If you’re a crocodile hoping to make some money at the box office, you better grab a safari hat and add a “Dundee” to the end of your name because chances are, audiences won’t want to see you otherwise.

As you may have heard, Creature, a schlocky B-movie about a half-gator, half-human monster, utterly bombed at the box office this weekend, swamping up a disastrous $327,000 from 1,507 theaters. That opening, which ranks as the worst-ever debut for a film playing in more than 1,500 theaters, means that each screening of Creature had an average of fewer than six viewers. No matter you look at it, that number bites.

The floptastic performance got me thinking: Has there ever really been a successful crocodile movie? READ FULL STORY

Joe Manganiello near deal to join stripper movie -- EXCLUSIVE

Steven Soderbergh’s movie about male strippers is just sick with hotties now. EW has learned exclusively that True Blood’s Joe Manganiello is in final talks to join the flick that already stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer.

Manganiello will play Big Dick Richie (no, we didn’t make that up), a role that is sure to require the ripped actor to drop trou at one point or another.  READ FULL STORY

'The Room' in 3-D: Tommy Wiseau talks exclusively about adding another dimension to his cult movie's sex scenes

the-room-posterTommy Wiseau has told EW he will theatrically release a 3-D version of his cult movie The Room, either at the end of 2011 or in 2012. “The process is very detail-oriented,” said the actor-writer-director. “But we want to do it because I’m obsessed about 3-D right now, if you ask me.”

The famously mysterious filmmaker has no plans to alter the film for the 3-D version which means the ever-growing army of Room devotees can look forward to the sight of Wiseau’s derriere in three dimensions during the film’s lengthy sex scenes. “My bottom will have to be in 3-D because I’m not changing anything,” he explained. “So you’ll be very close.” READ FULL STORY

Craptastic or crap: How do you tell the difference?

In addition to assembling a fantastic list of perpetually rewatchable movies, many of the posters who joined in the party here the other day provided intriguing criteria for what makes a film addictive: Commenters celebrated the pleasures of comfort movies, noise movies, great movies, romantic movies, crying movies, cheesy movies, guilty-pleasure movies, and so-bad-they’re-good movies, among other categories.

It’s the so-bad-they’re-good subdivision I’m most interested in at the moment, an unintentional genre that I think of as relatively new–and just possibly dangerous. I mean, remember the genius cult TV creation Mystery Science Theater 3000? When stranded human Joel Robinson and his robot sidekicks Tom Servo and Crow (that’s them, above) were forced by evil scientists to watch bad movies, the accidental moviegoers were under no illusions that the stuff on the screen was craptastic–it was pretty recognizably crappy, and ripe for a running commentary that was the real point of the show.

“Craptasy” (did I make that word up?) assumes an ironic, READ FULL STORY
