What do you get when you cross chemical waste with beavers? The answer is the horror-comedy Zombeavers – and Hollywood’s latest viral phenomenon. The trailer for this film about (you guessed it!) zombified beavers has racked up almost 2 million views since it debuted a couple of weeks back. “It’s cool to get the validation,” says first-time director Jordan Rubin, who co-penned the film with regular writing partners Al and Jon Kaplan. “Once something starts getting up in the hits it’s interesting to see how people go, ‘Oh, we might have something here.”

10 secrets of Disney's Oscar-nominated short 'Get a Horse!' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you’ve seen Frozen, you’ve seen the cutting-edge/old-fashioned Mickey Mouse short Get a Horse! (And given Frozen’s box office at this point, we’re guessing that means everybody.)

But even if you’ve already watched the nuvo-retro Mickey movie, which combines an old-school 1930s hand-drawn style with state-of-the-art digital animation and 3-D effects, you probably haven’t seen everything the Oscar-nominated short has to offer.

EW has an exclusive clip of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film – when things go from flat to flat-out crazy. Director Lauren MacMullan walked us through all the little details, hidden and otherwise.

So here they are, the video and secrets of Get a Horse! READ FULL STORY

Watch Alec Baldwin playfully call his '30 Rock' mom Elaine Stritch a bitch in a new doc - EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Elaine-Stritch.jpg

If you thought Alec Baldwin was cantankerous, even he pales compared to the veteran Broadway and TV star Elaine Stritch. In Chiemi Karasawa’s new documentary Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me, opening in limited release this Friday, the 89-year-old actress (and Today show F-bomb-dropper) recounts her turbulent life on the stage and screen, her battles with alcoholism, and her improbable comeback in the last decade. In this exclusive clip, we see Stritch on the set of 30 Rock, where she played the wasp-tongued mother of Alec Baldwin’s network exec Jack Donaghy (a role that earned the actress her third Emmy Award in 2008). On set, she mixes it up with Tina Fey and Baldwin, a kindred spirit who hilariously grumbles about the veteran scene-stealer in rehearsal. “Don’t you last-word me, you,” he says. “It’s my laugh-line, you bitch.” And her reaction to his grousing is just as priceless.

'Need for Speed': Michael Keaton gets psyched for the 'race before the race' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

“This is gettin’ good,” Michael Keaton’s ominously named Need for Speed character Monarch says to Aaron Paul’s Tobey Marshall in his signature manic gruff.

Monarch, it seems, has just gotten on board with the romance of Tobey’s quest. He’s speeding across the country (from New York to California in 48 hours, to be precise) with Imogen Poots’ Julia to compete in another race where he hopes to get revenge against the wealthy ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper), a lifelong rival who landed him in jail, hurt someone close to him, and stole his ex-girlfriend. Unfortunately it’s not as simple as cutting down on pit stops. Tobey is dodging parole and a bounty that Dino put on his head.

Still, Keaton’s Monarch is about as excited as we are to see him back in a scene-chewing supporting role. Check out the exclusive clip after the jump. READ FULL STORY

'Joe' star Nicolas Cage 'could handle a venomous cottonmouth snake without protection' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

JOE-poster.jpg

Nicolas Cage is a force; you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who would deny that. But the prolific actor has been toeing the line of self-parody in the past few decades with his larger-than-life characters. In the Southern gothic Joe, director David Gordon Green gave Cage the opportunity to lose himself in a serious performance again as an impetuous, selfish ex-con who surprises himself when he becomes protective of a hard-luck kid he hires for lumber work, played by Mud‘s Tye Sheridan.

It was a somewhat unconventional choice, but, it seems to have been an inspired one as well. Cage got raves for his performance after the film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Green always knew he would be perfect for Joe Ransom. “He had tremendous masculinity. He’s just in incredible shape and intimidating in stature. He also has great dramatic range as an actor. He can be in Con-Air and he can be in Leaving Las Vegas. And just for me, personally, and the manner in which I like to work…he’s a funny guy,” Green told EW.  “I like to have a good time when I’m making movies, and he seemed like a guy who would agree.”

So he invited Cage to Austin, where they drove around and talked for a few days about the role. Cage even helped Green scout locations for Prince Avalanche, which Green was about to begin production on at the time. Cage, Green said, “was so eager to reinvent himself. It felt like a great opportunity to me.” READ FULL STORY
